Format: Paperback
This book is one of the best introductory books to the history of modern South Asia. Well written by two revisionist historians, it gives an impressive overview of the partition of India. Although it is detailed enough to understand the complexities of South Asian history, it lacks depth. Good bibliography.

Format: Paperback
This is an impressive overview of South Asian history, going over key debates and events in the last three centuries with some clarity. Be it cultural, economic, social or political many angles are covered here and an extensive bibliography is supplied for further invesitgation, but for a starting reader on the history of the times you will probably find no better book.

Format: Paperback
A spurious effort, synthesizing all the cliched prejudices of Left-liberal cogitation, the main purpose of which is to demean and insult the people of India and Pakistan by equating them with each other. It surely pleased the US State department and the British FCO, but Pakistani Muslims must find it galling to be unceremoniously corralled with despicable Kaffirs whom they are making every effort to destroy with bombs and guns across the length and breadth of India. The educated among the latter will no doubt be delighted to find themselves useful in the noble venture to unite all and sundry, but the majority will find in it a vile misrepresentation of the truth. But that is Left-liberal scholarship from Harvard and it should be read by Obama's advisers before the launch of a new offensive to demolish India. Mediocre in the extreme and ontologically misconceived in the first place.
