    Midnights Furies Read & download ↠ eBook ePUB or Kindle PDF Midnights FuriesI had mixed feelings about this work My biggest complaint is that it seemed based to large degree on secondary sources so than I'd hoped and the preface seemed to suggest and as such it didn't seem to cover as much new ground as one would hope for an already thoroughly documented historical event On the other hand the narrative itself is really gripping and well written The book is an absolute page turner and I suppose that in itself makes it worth writing another book on PartitionContent wise Jinnah unsurprisingly comes across poorly Nehru fares much better although by no means comes across unscathed One thing that the author does very well is tracing the roots of Pakistan's current paranoia about India back to

    Midnights Furies Read & download ↠ eBook ePUB or Kindle PDF Midnights FuriesLoved the book Five stars primarily because it's so hard to find even handed historical summaries of events in modern India I'd naturally read about the Partition before most recently with Indian Summer another fantastic book but this book brought out many nuances I'd glossed over in the past Three things I found interesting1 It reinforced my belief that Partition could have gone down a very different path if it was anyone but Nehru Jinnah and Mountbatten negotiating Each man's biases insecurities and ambitions are critical aspects to why the subcontinent looks the way it does today2 Kashmir is particularly complex This might just be me but I've always found it
