Foreign Office Files for India, Pakistan and Afghanistan, 1947-1980

“This collection will supplement, in a vital way, a period of India’s post-colonial history which is in many areas thinly documented within the existing official archives. As well as tracing the international connections between India, the Commonwealth and the wider world, this collection offers unique insights into political movements and cross-border tensions that were central to the modern state’s preoccupation with stability and national unification.” – Dr William Gould, University of Leeds
