As well as analysing the major empires of modern India, from the Mughals to the Raj, A History of Modern India also considers the economic, social and intellectual dynamism that accompanied intervening periods of political fragmentation, such as the 80 years that separated the Mughal and the British regimes. The book explores the difficulties confronting the rise of Indian nationalism and the consequent confrontation between religious communities, delving into how a resolution that should have been the crowning victory of a pacifist anticolonial movement was instead resolved tragically with the violence of Partition in 1947.
