Google full text of this book:

Mr. Harrison warns that unless a new democratic lender arises when Nehru steps down, India will face Balkanization or authoritarian control based on army force. His disturbing book "is a study of enduring value, fully annotated and indexed and blessed by two of the finest maps in any recent work of scholarship."
