From the cover: “A Division of the Spoils is the last volume of Paul Scott’s Indian quartet. In it he shows how the British presence moved inexorably to its end in 1947. Not only were the British negotiating withdrawal, but it was a time when Hindus and Moslems entrenched themselves in ideological and political positions in preparation for the inevitable post-war recriminations and future territorial aspirations.”
