India Divided
India Divided
By Rajendra Prasad
Hind Kitabs, 1947, 427 pp.

The author, a former President of the Congress Party, in 1947 served as a member of the Interim Government of India. His book is one of the fullest, most thoughtful and least partisan of those to appear in recent years. The facts which he marshals in great profusion prove to him the unwisdom of partition, but in an "addendum" he foresees that it will nonetheless be put into effect.
