A number of surveys of Indian history have been published in recent years and many of them include a small section on the post-independence period, usually ending in the 1960s. However, because they include the nationalist movement before independence, they might provide additional contexts for further reading. For example, see Barbara Metcalf and Thomas Metcalf, A Concise History of India and Peter Robb, A History of India. Sugata Bose and Ayesha Jalal, Modern South Asia, pay special attention to the issues of Partition.
