Johnston Format: Unabridged Length: 1 hr and 47 mins Language: English Release date: 01-12-18 Publisher: Charles River Editors Genres: History, European Publisher's Summary: After the Sepoy Rebellion, India was governed directly from England through a dedicated department: the India Office, headed by the Secretary of State for India. The territory was divided into British India, which came under direct British control, and the Princely States. The latter were the territories and sovereignties of various powerful tradition leaders, remnants of the old system of rule, who were permitted, under various weights of British superintendentship, to maintain their positions and continue their rule. British India ultimately covered some 54 percent of the landmass and 77 percent of the population. By the time the British began to contemplate a withdrawal from India, 565 princely states were officially recognized, in addition to thousands of zamindaris and jagirs, which were in effect feudal estates. The stature of each Princely State was defined by the number of guns fired in salute upon a ceremonial occasion honoring one or other of the princes. These ranged from nine-gun to 21-gun salutes and, in a great many cases, no salute at all. The Princely States were reasonably evenly spread between ancient Muslim and Hindu dynasties, but bearing in mind the minority status of Muslims in India, Muslims were disproportionately represented. This tended to grant Muslims an equally disproportionate share of what power was devolved to local leaderships, and it positioned powerful Muslim leaders to exert a similarly unequal influence on British policy. Kashmir: The History and Legacy of the Indian Subcontinents Most Disputed Territory chronicles the remarkable history of the area and the influence it has had over the centuries. Members Reviews: This book helps one understand the roots of the Indian and Pakistani conflicts about Kashmir The e-book Kashmir: The History and Legacy of the Indian Subcontinentâs Most Disputed Territory helped me understand the Kashmir problem better. The e-book starts out by describing the history of the European trading in the area that would become Pakistan and India. Next, the e-book discussed the history of the partition of India including a general discussion of the personalities involved. The section on the partition of India also described the resultant massacres of Indians and Pakistanis who were caught on the wrong side of the future areas that would become either Pakistan or India. Kashmir was a princely state under Sir Hari Singh. Sir Singh attempted to maintain the autonomy of his state. His problem was that the majority of the state was Muslim and Pakistan believed Kashmir should come under their spear of influence. Sir Singh asked for Indiaâs assistance in maintaining order after Pakistan encouraged Muslim militants to take control of Kashmir. The book provides a wealth of information about Pakistanâs encouragement of militants to overthrow the government of Kashmir. I think anyone interested in learning more about the conflicts between India and Pakistan should read this book. Title Misleading This was purportedly the history of Kashmir -- India's most disputed territory -- but the early history before approximately the 14th Century was completely omitted. PS: while these short works are great when all one requires is a good chunk of the highlights, it would be wonderful if the authors would take the time to proof their work, and even better if the editors would as well.
