The files provide broad coverage of the birth and development of the Indian and Pakistani states, the problems of partition and the tensions over Kashmir. They cover the period from 1947 through to the death of Jawaharlal Nehru in 1964.

Other topics include:

* Reactions to the deaths of Mahatma Gandhi and Mohammed Ali Jinnah
* Nehru’s visit to the US
* US economic aid to India

William Gould, Senior Lecturer in Indian History, University of Leeds (Previously Smuts Fellow, Centre of South Asian Studies, Cambridge) states: ‘As well as tracing the international connections between India, the Commonwealth and the wider world, this collection/resource offers unique insights into political movements and cross-border tensions that were central to the modern state’s preoccupation with stability and national unification.’
