Vibhajan presents the entire history of the times when India went through several brawls and insurgences of the Indians, the rise of Indian political leaders and politics, the Partition that led to the creation of Pakistan as an Independent country and finally, Independent India. The whole recount has been presented in a unique way by Yasmin Khan, who has provided the readers with diverse outlooks and insights to the subject. It is a narrative of the unscrupulous techniques employed by the British before the Partition. She also recounts the consequences of the Partition. The book discusses how the front runners of colonial India were inexperienced and were gullible to such manipulation. With extensive references from classified documents from the USA, UK, and India, the book provides interesting insights into the India's Partition. The author has drawn her conclusions after thorough research. In The Great Partition, Yasmin Khan exposes the widespread ignorance of what Partition would entail in practice as well as the haste and recklessness with which it was completed. Drawing on fresh information from an array of sources and underscoring the catastrophic human cost involved, Khan provides an authoritative and accessible analysis of this cataclysmic event and its devastating legacy. About the Author Yasmin Khan was born in London. She is a University Lecturer in British history at the University of Oxford and a Fellow of Kellogg College. The Great Partition is her first book. It has won the Gladstone Prize from the Royal Historical Society and been translated into Hindi and Urdu.
