This is a well researched unbiased account on the freedom struggle of the subcontinent and the aftermath of the same leading to its partition. The inhabitants of the subcontinent apparently prosperous have been a divided lot. That led to many invaders and looters making good use of the prevailing environment resulting in foreign rule for nearly one thousand years. Certain far-sighted intellectuals and hard-core nationalists made concerted efforts to motivate and invigorate the masses. The author has tried to put the relevant data in a concise manner. He deserves praise for doing so. This book is recommended for anyone interested in India in her present form.
