India in the Interregnum

Interim Government, September 1946—August 1947

Author Dr Rakesh Ankit

  • The author has focused attention on a critical period of contemporary South Asian history, the 11 months' period during which an Interim Government in which the Congress and the Muslim League participated held office.
  • The author has drawn upon a very substantial body of archival materials in India and the UK.
  • The book's main contribution would be to highlight elements of institutional and political continuity to be delineated, in the face of a very substantial body of historical literature which has emphasized rupture and discontinuity as the central features of Transfer of Power and Partition.
