Leaving India and the End of Empire

(p.217) 6 Perspectives
Administering Colonialism and War

Colin R. Alexander

Oxford University Press

This smaller but well-formed chapter concludes the book by discussing Clow’s contribution to discussions about the future of India. In an advisory capacity, Clow articulated his visions for India, particularly the future of Assam and the frontier territories, through a series of essays, none of which have been published before. Some, but not all, of these recommendations were taken forward with the British plans with the consequences of those decisions still being felt today in the form of non-state political violence.

Keywords:   Partition, Assam, postcolonialism, foreign aid, violence
