Description
Jammu & Kashmir 1949-1967 Karan Singh is, in a way, a sequel to the author's earlier book of Maharaja Hari Singh: The Troubled Years. While the earlier book examined the events and the forces that heralded an era of communal, confrontational and separatist politics in the princely State of Jammu & Kashmir that saw the Ruler ranged against the emerging forces of Sheikh Abdullah, Jawaharlal Nehru, and Mohammad Ali Jinnah, Jammu & Kashmir 1949-1967 Karan Singh examines the politics of a period that followed the exit of Maharaja Hari Singh from the State. This period incrementally failed to come to terms with a State that was created by the genius of Maharaja Gulab Singh in the 19th century. As a result, the Jammu region and the Dogras were forced to launch a stir, the repercussions of which continue to reverberate even today.
