Description:

As New copy in Fine or better dustwrapper with author's signature on the title page. No inscription, signature only by Larry Collins. This is a first printing copy with full number line. There is hardly noticeable yellow fading, 1/4 inches by 2 inches in size, at the upper right corner of dust jacket front cover. Unread copy, pages and cover are crisp and intact. Protected in clear Mylar cover. Note that I have another copy of the same book signed by Dominique LaPierre only. 0671220888 HISTORY: The authors have re-created the majestic and tumultuous end of an era, when 400 million people, one fifth of all humanity, claimed their freedom from the greatest empire history has ever known - only to find that the price of freedom was partition, war, riots and murder. Their subject is the eclipse of the British Raj and the birth of an independent India and Pakistan; the violent transformation of the fabled India. At the center of their narrative are major figures of a drama: Nehru, the sensitive politician who prepared for greatness as India's prime minister in a British jail; Jinnah, a Muslim who drank, ate pork and rarely entered a mosque, yet who led 45 million Muslims to nationhood; Mountbatten drawing up the plans for India's division; Gandhi, the gentle prophet of a revolution, who stirred the masses of the most populous area on earth without raising his voice, and humbled the British empire by refusing all nourishment except water and bicarbonate of soda. Culminating in a book as exciting as the event itself, a book which catches you up in the passions and the excitement of a great moment in history. Bookseller Inventory #

From the Publisher: 'Thrilling ... staggers the imagination.' - DAILY MAIL

'There is no single passage in I this profoundly researched book that one could actually fault. Having been there most of the time in question, I can vouch for the accuracy of its general mood. It is a work of scholarship, of investigation, research and of significance.' JAMES CAMERON, NEW YORK TIMES The dialogue is convincing, the story is emotionally moving and it contains some of the best descriptions of battle I've read..." - TIME OUT

"I defy a reader to put the book down once Robinson has got him into the air..." Paul Fussell, NEW REPUBLIC 'The song of India ... illuminated in scenes like a pageant.' - TIME

'A heroic tale that has not been told a tenth as, well before ... It will give more non-Indians more knowledge of the vast circumstances surrounding the birth of India than anything previously written. With an instinct for drama and a skill in narration, the authors take the reader from Whitehall to Delhi, to Calcutta, to Lahore, to Pula, to the villages of the Punjab and Bengal; their hold on the reader never falters.' - JOHN KENNETH GALBRAITH
