The Rediscovery of India considers the partition of India to have been the most disastrous of political solutions for the subcontinent. Tracing past history, the author shows how the Indian leaders were manipulated by the British into seeing it as the only solution.
The harsh experience of the last fifty years must be used to put away the political weakness which has brought India, Pakistan and Bangladesh to the brink of disintegration. A fresh solution has to be sought in the form of a confederation. A provocative book on the historical problems which have acquired new dimensions in the contemporary political scene.
