Review Quotes
'A valuable academic study of the subcontinent which is accessible to the serious general reader and enhances our understanding of some of its most intractable problems' - Judit M. Brown, Beit Professor of Commonwealth History, University of Oxford 'Tan and Kudaisyas set out a very clear and succinct historiography of partition and its place in South Asian history. It is a wide-ranging study with a strong comparative dimension, exploring the impact of partition and its legacy for India, Pakistan and Bangladesh...this is a valuable addition to the historiography. Most imporatantly, it points the way to further avenues of research.' - The Journal of Imperial and Commonwealth History

Main Description
This book draws upon new theoretical insights and fresh bodies of data to historically reappraise partition in the light of its long aftermath. It uses a comparative approach by viewing South Asia in its totality, rather than looking at it in narrow'national'terms. As the first book to focus on the aftermath of partition, it fills a distinctive niche in the study of contemporary South Asia.
