First published in 1949 in the aftermath of Partition, and now available for the first time in paperback, Stern Reckoning documents in great detail the riots, massacres, casualty figures, and political occurrences that added up to the division of India into two countries, India and Pakistan. It has, in the forty years since its publication, become a well-known source work for historians of modern India as a representative of the political and historiographical perspectives of the time it documents.
