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

We have a trial of Foreign Office Files for India, Pakistan and Afghanistan, 1947-1980. Section I: Independence, Partition and the Nehru Era, 1947-1964 until 8th April 2011.

To access this trial go to http://www.archivesdirect.amdigital.co.uk/. Off-campus users should access this link using Internet Explorer in the Web or Office folder of Apps Anywhere. If we purchased this resource we would set up access via EZproxy as usual.

The birth and development of the Indian and Pakistani states, the problems of partition and the tensions over Kashmir, from 1947 through to the death of Jawaharlal Nehru in 1964, are examined in great detail in this new online resource from the Adam Matthew Group. These were traumatic years for the region, with the violence of partition and its aftermath erupting into full-scale war between India and Pakistan. Note that the ‘download entire document in PDF’ option is not available during the trial. However, you are still able to view and print images from the collections.

After trying this resource please leave a comment. You can use the Anonymous option if you do not have a blogger account, but please include your name so we can follow up your comments.
