A history of modern India, 1480-1950

"A History of Modern India provides a comprehensive chronological analysis of India's vibrant and diverse history. As well as examining the evolution of the relationship between the society and the state in its various economic, social, cultural and political forms, it analyses the major empires in modern India from the Moghuls (1580-1739) to the Raj (1818-1947) and discusses the economic, social and intellectual dynamism that accompanied intervening periods of political fragmentation. Finally, the book considers the difficulties confronting the rise of Indian nationalism and the consequent confrontation between religious communities: what should have been the crowning victory of a pacifist anti-colonial movement was instead brutally resolved with the violence of Partition in 1947"--Jacket
