One of the most persistent area of conflict since World-War II, the Indo-Pakistan troubles, "celebrated" their 50th anniversary in the second half of 1997 without there being any solution in sight. Since august 1947, when the two new states were created out of British India, there has been almost uninterrupted conflict between India and Pakistan. On three occasions, in 1947, in 1965 and 1971, it has led to war. The first volume of India-Pakistan is a study of the historical background to the conflict, while the second volume provides analysis of the many structural factors, in particular with regard to the political background in India during the first period of conflict. Differences arose out of a post-colonial settlement which was driven by the old British policy of "Divide and Rule", but which was effected in a special way due to the leadership of Jawaharlal Nehru´s and to the suggestions of the Viceroy Mountbatten. This volume also includes interviews with many, politicians and journalists among them, who have been deeply involved in and have an intimate knowledge of the subcontinent and its recent history. 433pp.
