Drawing on the newest and most sophisticated historical research and scholarship in the field, Modern South Asia provides a challenging insight for those with an intellectual curiosity about the region. After sketching the pre-modern history of the subcontinent, the book concentrates on the last three centuries. Jointly authored by two leading Indian and Pakistani historians, it offers a rare depth of historical understanding of the politics, cultures, and economies that shape the lives of more than a fifth of humanity.Covering the entire spectrum of modern South Asian history, this comprehensive study provides new insights into the structure and ideology of the British raj, the meaning of subaltern resistance, the refashioning of social relations along the lines of caste, class, community and gender, the different strands of anti-colonial nationalism and the dynamics of decolonisation.This third edition brings the debate up to the present day, covering the closer integration of South Asia with the global economy, the impact of developments in Afghanistan on the region as a whole, the large implications of Benazir Bhutto's assassination and the fresh challenges to South Asia's nation-states.
