A COMPREHENSIVE ACCOUNT
This book has documented the riots, which took place in India after independence. There is hardly any other credible work of this kind. Communal violence occurs very frequently in this country and yet much documentation has not been done. This is virtually the first book and is an out- come of real hard work and immense patience to find the data. It gives a comprehensive account of communal riots for a period of more than half a century with analytical tables, graphs and commentary etc. It may be found useful for scholars studying or researching in this field and the policy makers.
