An American witness to India's partition by Phillips Talbot( )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,039 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1938 the New York-based Institute of Current World Affairs awarded 23-year-old Phillips Talbot a fellowship with a mandate: visit South Asia and learn about the intricacies of life in India. Till 1950, Talbot graphically recounted the buildup to Indian and Pakistani independence, and the early experiences of the new states in the form of several letters to the institute. Talbot`s reports from the field, presented here in the original, offer a kaleidoscope of first-hand observations: on student life at the Aligarh Muslim University, local life in a small Muslim community in Kashmir, a Vedic

Gokhale : the Indian moderates and the British raj by B. R Nanda( )

37 editions published between 1974 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 887 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the biography of one of the pre-eminent leaders of India during its struggle for freedom from colonization. B.R. Nanda uses the life of Gopal Krishna Gokhale, who was active in politics during the end of the nineteenth century and the beginning of the twentieth, as a springboard for a coherent and detailed account of the development of the Indian National Congress and the national movement, to both of which Gokhale was crucial." "The author's clear and incisive account spans Indo-British relations during the administrations of Curzon, Minto and Hardinge. Through vignettes of eminent Indian contemporaries of Gokhale, insights into the attitudes of government officials, and vividly described popular reactions to British policies, Nanda captures the spirit of political India in the 1850s. The result is a magisterial and richly-nuanced portrait of the man as well as India at the turn of the century, engulfed in political turmoil."--Jacket

Gandhi : pan-Islamism, imperialism, and nationalism in India by B. R Nanda( Book )

22 editions published between 1989 and 2002 in English and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is an in-depth study of a crucial period of the freedom movement and of Gandhi's role as the chief actor and catalyst. Noted scholar B.R. Nanda analyses Gandhi's aims and methods during the period 1915-25, his emergence as the dominant political figure in India, his confrontation with the British, and the consequences of the Congress-Khilafat alliance in the non-cooperation movement." "Nanda also examines the varying attitudes of different segments of Indian society and the British towards the movement. The spirit of the times is vividly recreated and includes career sketches of significant Muslim leaders - Sir Syed Ahmad Khan, the Ali brothers, Dr Ansari, and Maulana Azad. The author analyses why Gandhi chose to support the pleas of Indian Muslims on behalf of the Ottoman Khilafat, and how the fate of Turkey and the Ottoman Caliphate so completely came to obsess the consciousness of a whole generation of Indian Muslims. This work views the Khilafat movement as a part of the total evolution of Muslim politics, and the external and internal forces which moulded the Muslim community."--Jacket

Road to Pakistan : the life and times of Mohammad Ali Jinnah by B. R Nanda( Book )

9 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a biography of Mohammad Ali Jinnah and the story of the creation of Pakistan. At a time of much interest and concern about Pakistan in the international community, this volume provides a historical context which helps in an understanding of the present. It traces the development of the Muslim identity on the Indian subcontinent and follows Jinnah as he rode the wave of Muslim communalism to ultimate success in the demand for the partition of India and the creation of Pakistan at independence from British rule. Jinnah's successful espousal of the demand for Pakistan was a remarkable feat. In achieving this success, Jinnah traversed a long distance from the beliefs with which he entered public life. He started out a nationalist, as a protégé of senior Congress leaders like Dadabhai Naoroji. However, the introduction of separate electorates for Muslims after the Minto-Morley reforms in 1909 led him to change his position in order to appeal to his changed constituency. Even so, it was not until 1937 that he unabashedly played the religious card. He now began to see the Congress and the Hindus as his adversaries rather than the British. Through these twists and turns of posture, the one constant factor was his underlying ambition to remain in a position of leadership and eminence. This volume traces the zigzag course of Jinnah's political life and the establishment of Pakistan within the broader framework of the Indian freedom struggle. Indeed the main players in this struggle with three protagonists were the Indian National Congress and the British rulers. This work demonstrates how this bigger struggle opened the door for Muslim separatism led by Jinnah. It was through this opening, aided by British moves to use the Muslim League as a foil to the Congress, that Jinnah very astutely led his party to success in its demand for the creation of Pakistan. -- Product Description

Three statesmen : Gokhale, Gandhi, and Nehru by B. R Nanda( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The destiny of modern India has largely been shaped by the efforts of three charismatic leaders - Gokhale, Gandhi, and Nehru. This omnibus volume brings together the lives of these three giants that enable us to compare their personalities, approaches, and achievements. At a time when India is faced with the challenges of the twenty-first century, the lives of Gokhale, Gandhi, and Nehru have much to teach us." "Nanda, India's foremost historian of the freedom movement, examines the lives of the three leaders as he relates them to their eras. These, then, are both biographies and histories of critical times - relating personalities to periods and leaders to the societies they lived in." "These works will engage both the scholar and the general reader and will be of particular interest to students of modern history and politics, as also to policy-makers, analysts, and journalists."--BOOK JACKET
