Region and Partition: Bengal, Punjab and the Partition of the Subcontinent
Ian Talbot, Gurharpal Singh
Oxford University Press, 1999 - History - 407 pages
For the first time, this book brings a comparative perspective to the two Muslim majority areas of the subcontinent most affected by the turmoil which followed the British decision to divide and quit in 1947. It presents important new insights into both the mechanisms of boundary drawing and the consequences for the millions of ordinary people caught up in the massacres and migrations.
