Overview

Jointly written by two leading Indian and Pakistani historians, this edition of Modern South Asia offers a rare depth of historical understanding of the politics, cultures and economies that shape the lives of more than a fifth of humanity. After sketching the pre-modern history of the sub-continent, the book concentrates on the last three centuries. This second edition has been updated throughout to take account of recent historical research. It includes an expanded section on post-independence with a completely new chapter on the period from 1991 to the present, a chapter on the last millennium in subcontinental history and a new chronology of key events.
