The Making of India: A Historical Survey
This work offers a broad survey of India's search for political identity in the context of a culture marked by strong conflicting socio-religious traditions. The books also surveys the historical development of India from earliest times through British colonialism to the present. Among the discussions are a comparison of Indian historical development with that of China; a view of the development of Indian civilization and political culture in terms of the socio-religious conflicts and traditions of Hindus and Moslems; and coverage of the politicization of religion and communalization of politics in the current era which pits Moslems against Hindus, challenging the unity and secular nature of the Indian state.
