KEEPING THE JEWEL IN THE CROWN: THE BRITISH BETRAYAL OF INDIA
by Walter Reid
Published by Birlinn Limited. 1st. 2016
Nearly fine condition in a nearly fine dustwrapper. In 1947, when India achieved independence, Britain portrayed the transfer of power as the outcome of decades, even centuries, of responsible planning â€“ the honourable discharge of an historic responsibility. That view has never been seriously challenged in Britain. But this book shows that the official narrative is a travesty of what really happened. 288 pages.
Some bumping to base of spine.
