9780090971503: Great Divide, The: Britain, India, Pakistan

On 15 August 1947, the greatest and most decisive step in the retreat of British imperialism occurred: the new nation of Pakistan was created out of the body of India, and Britain's century-long domination over the Indian sub-continent ended. This authoritative and impartial account places the events surrounding partition in an historical perspective, amd as such is a major contribution to contemporary history.
