From Google Books: Essential reading for everyone wishing to understand today's India. M.J. Akbar explains the resilient achievements of India's secular democracy and its vulnerability and failures. Taking 1947 as his springboard, he discusses the strains on Indian unity- a full historical, political and cultural survey of the main pressure points -rising fundamentalism, separatism, the consequences of Partition, unease in Kashmir- brings his analysis up to data.
