Book Description Manohar Publishers & Distributors, 1999. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. This work in three volumes represents the first thorough and dispassionate study of the background of India`s partition. The basic premise of the author is that the emergence of Pakistan was neither the result of a fluke nor of false consciousness, but of the working of powerful historical and social forces. The author examines in depth the historical and socio-political foundations of Muslim nationalism and its evolution and gives a fresh look to the events between 1937 and 1947, the complex realities at various stages and the roles of the key decision makers. This pioneering work is the result of more than a quarter century`s research by the author. Printed Pages: 320. Bookseller Inventory # 44086

Book Description Manohar Publishers and Distributors. Hardback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Pathway to India's Partition: Volume I - Foundations of Muslim Nationalism, Bimal Prasad, This is the first of a three-volume study of the background of Indias Partition, decidedly one of the seminal developments in the history of the subcontinent. Rejecting the widely held view that Partition was the result mainly of British manipulation and the mistakes or intransigence of certain Indian leaders, the author asserts that it was the result primarily of a powerful movement of Muslim nationalism. This volume is devoted to a discussion of this foundations of that nationalism. Dealing at the outset with the legacy of the past, the author disputes the theory of a perpetual, centuries-old conflict between two antagonistic civilisations in the political arena. At the same time he shows how both the Muslim and the Hindu elites had already become conscious of their separate identities before the era of their modern political awakening began in the second half of the nineteenth century. He then moves on to discuss the nature of the economic divide between the two communities and the intellectual as well as emotional environment of the Muslim elite. At the end the focus turns to Hindu nationalism and British policy both of which, in varying degrees, worked as props for Muslim nationalism. In every chapter an effort has been made to synthesize the results of latest researchers as also to prevent fresh interpretations. Bookseller Inventory # B9788173042485
