About the Book:

The Partition is probably the most cataclysmic event in the history of twentieth-century India. It has a profound impact on contemporary culture, literature, history and historiography.

The impression left on the minds of those who lived through those traumatic times persists to this day.

The essays include extracts from the speeches and writings of Azad, Jinnah, Gandhi and Nehru, memoirs of people who were actively involved in the politics of the time, and a short story of Saadat Hasan Manto.

About the Author:

Mushirul Hasan is Vice Chancellor of Jamia Millia Islamia. He is the author of Legacy of a Divided Nation: India's Muslims since Independence, Nationalism and Communal Politics in India, and more recently, From Pluralism to Separatism: Qasbas in Colonial Awadh.

Excerpts from Review:

'Few contemporary historians have studied the national movement, the role of nationalist Muslim leaders, their occasional disenchantment with the Congress leadership, with insights as sharp as Hasan's.'

- Saeed Naqvi

'Mushirul Hasan does not attempt to provide simplistic answers...but assembles a wide-ranging and fairly representative cross-section of different views to throw more light on these areas of controversy.'

- Stephen Rego
