"There are few countries in the world today which are as widely separated by sheer lack of mutual understanding as the United States and India and Pakistan. This book will help create understanding among American readers. Here is the story of pre-partition India and of the historical, political, and social forces which led, first to the rise of nationalism as a protest against British rule and, second, to the Muslim demand for and independent nation. Mr. Brown describes the division of the Indian sub-continent into the two nations of India and Pakistan and the disputes now existing between them, especially that concerning Kashmir. He considers the domestic problems of education, language, press and above all those of population and production. He takes a fresh look at the difficult question of Hindu-Muslim ill-feeling. This book shows how and why the United States, if only in its own self-interest, must help India and Pakistan work toward an eventual solution of all these explosive problems."; 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall
