Abandoning traditional forms this narrative surveys the history of modern India through the sensitive eyes of three protagonists - Aziz, Pradip and Jagmohan. Professor Hasan brings to life, in all their complexity, the histories of colonial rule, Independence and Partition. Focusing largely on the years 1857 to 1947, he provides a series of dialogues, interspersed with Urdu couplets, that will engage the reader and give them an independent and eclectic viewpoint on a familiar story. Professor Mushirul Hasan is an eminent historian who teaches Modern Indian History at the Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi. He has been Visiting Professor at the Maison des Sciences de L'Homme, Paris; the University of Virginia, Charlottesville; the Institute of Oriental Studies, University of Rome. He was Fellow at the Institute of Advanced Study, Berlin, and Professorial Fellow at the Nehru Memorial Museum and Library, New Delhi. He has authored many academic books on modern history and related areas. Printed Pages: 368.
