Description: This book is an exhaustive and careful documentation of the accession of Kashmir in 1947. It is based on declassified papers, correspondence and reports that have become available in recent years. Kashmir, 1947 provides a virtually day-to-day account of the critical times when the fate of Kashmir was 'decided' in the context of Britain's geo-political compulsions and strategies. Over the years, two completely different versions of Kashmir's accession to India have come into being. The author critically examines both versions using the recently declassified Transfer of Power Documents as well as personal accounts of the main participants in the events of that period. This helps him to reconstruct the two years which culminated in Kashmir's accession to India. Jha's book will interest all Kashmir watchers including historians and policy-makers in the subcontinent, journalists, students of international relations and general readers.
