9780099478836: A Division of the Spoils

The fourth and final title is a moving conclusion to The Raj Quartet. As the British presence moves inexorably into its last days, the fall of the Empire signals the end of an era, and a new beginning. For the Hindus and Muslims, the political reality signals inevitable post-war recrimination and future territorial wrangles. And for the British — for the Laytons, Merrick and Guy Perron — the final partings are swallowed into the great upheaval.
