Partition of India Reviews
A precise, eminently readable account. It doesn't identify the larger themes, put traces the growth of Muslim league, and highlights how the British wanted to use it as a counterpoise to Congress. Both the Congress and British wanted India to remain undivided, but the "psychopathic case" (as Mountbatten described Jinnah) won the game, through threats and show of violence. A political game gone wrong, with no clear way to assign blames. But if there is one thing that we can be sure of, it is that no one is innocent of complicity in this. Not even Nehru. Whether that in itself is an evil, I am unable to judge.
