The failure of the cripps Mission was documented in the first volume in this series and the outbreak of the Quit India movement in the second. The third volume opens in the aftermath opf the earlier phases of the Quit India movement, treats of its continuing manifestations and the official responses to them before focusing more sharply first upon the propsect, and then the reality, of Gandhi's fast. This was an event which even on the pages of official records possesses a compulsive human interest while at the same time retaining its status as an episode of high historial moment in the development of Anglo-India relations. Most of the material in this, as in the two previous volumes, has not been published or available for study hitherto. It includes official and personal correspondence between the Secretary of State and the Viceroy, extracts from the reports of Governors, and minutes of the War Cabinet. of particular interest are the discussions on the choice of a new Viceroy culminating in Churchill's surprise decision to appoint Field Marshal Wavell.
