Description

A reappraisal of the tumultuous Partition and how it ignited long-standing animosities between India and Pakistan

"Eloquently discusses the making of India and Pakistan after British rule on the subcontinent was dismantled in 1947. . . . A new look at this still important subject."—Library Journal

This new edition of Yasmin Khan’s reappraisal of the tumultuous India-Pakistan Partition features an introduction reflecting on the latest research and on ways in which commemoration of the Partition has changed, and considers the Partition in light of the current refugee crisis.
 
Reviews of the first edition:
 
“A riveting book on this terrible story.”—Economist
 
“Unsparing. . . . Provocative and painful.”—Times (London)
 
“Many histories of Partition focus solely on the elite policy makers. Yasmin Khan’s empathetic account gives a great insight into the hopes, dreams, and fears of the millions affected by it.”—Owen Bennett Jones, BBC
