Based on new source material available in both England and India,India's Partitionexamines the partition in the context of the retreat of the British Empire. The freeing of India from British rule was the result of internal forces in both countries, while the split of the subcontinent along religious lines served as a harbinger for things to come. Panigrahi argues that partition was not a foregone conclusion and was not the favoured option for most of the main parties, but rather was the result of a unique set of circumstances.

An erudite exploration of the highly complex relations between India and Britain leading up to independence and the split,India's Partitionlooks at the leaders who made far-reaching decisions - and their motivations - during this critical time.
