After the Raj: British Novels of India Since 1947 by David Rubin



Portrayals of British India by Kipling, Forster, and their contemporaries have received considerable attention by literary critics. Yet there has been surprisingly little commentary about British novels of India since Indian independence in 1947. This period of transition is perhaps the most dramatic in the history of modern India, and novels written during this time, such as Paul Scott's Jewel in the Crown and Ruth Jhabvala's Heat and Dust, have attracted a great deal of popular attention.
