1 Ian Talbot and Gurharpal Singh
The Partition of India
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 0521761778 / 9780521761772; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
The British divided and quit India in 1947. The partition of India and the creation of Pakistan uprooted entire communities and left unspeakable violence in its trail. This volume tells the story of partition through the events that led up to it, the terrors that accompanied it, to migration and resettlement. In a new shift in the understanding of this seminal moment, the book also explores the legacies of partition which continue to resonate today in the fractured lives of individuals and communities, and more broadly in the relationship between India and Pakistan and the ongoing conflict over contested sites. In conclusion, the book reflects on the general implications of partition as a political solution to ethnic and religious conflict. The book, which is accompanied by photographs, maps and a chronology of major events, is intended for students as a portal into the history and politics of the Asian region. Contents 1. Understanding the partition historiography 2. The road to 1947 3. Violence and partition 4. Migration and resettlement 5. Partition legacies: ethnic and religious nationalism 6. An enduring rivalry: India and Pakistan since 1947. Printed Pages: 224 with 11 b/w illustrations and 5 maps. 034006
