Description

Keeping the jewel in the crown: The British betrayal of India

Walter Reid — acclaimed author of military and political history — explores Britain's role in India after the Second World War. His research uncovered a wealth of evidence to suggest that, far from easing India's passage to independence, Britain deliberately held back India's progress. This lead to repercussions that are still felt today.
