"A fascinating account of how, in the shadow of a bloody Partition, India and Pakistan worked to create bilateral spaces of mutuality and reciprocity, collaboration and cooperation, to address the most pressing issues of the time--from citizenship and the rights of minorities, to property, water sharing, and trade--even as they embarked upon the arduous task of state-making. This marvellous alternative history of a foundational period has particular resonance for the contemporary moment." -- Niraja G. Jayal, Professor at the Centre for the Study of Law and Governance, Jawaharlal Nehru University

"A pioneering and timely intervention at a critical time for one of the world's most dangerous regions. Raghavan's sober analysis of cooperation as well as conflict challenges the dominant perception of India-Pakistan relations as the site of uncompromising hostility." -- Farzana Shaikh, Associate Fellow, Asia-Pacific Programme, Chatham House, and author of Making Sense of Pakistan

"An outstanding and pioneering account of cooperation and collaboration between India and Pakistan in the early years after partition. This revisionist study is sure to become the definitive work on that period and essential reading for those seeking fresh historical insights into the troubled relationship."-- Amitabh Mattoo, Professor of Disarmament Studies, Centre for International Politics, Organization and Disarmament (CIPOD), School of International Studies, Jawaharlal Nehru University

"The most original study yet written of one of the world's oldest conflicts, Pallavi Raghavan's history of Indo-Pakistani relations revolutionises the genre. It does so by looking at how this conflict is defined more by what the two countries share than their differences, which is what makes it so intractable." -- Faisal Devji, Professor of Indian History and Director of the Asian Studies Centre, University of Oxford

"Animosity at Bay [provides] a fresh look at a historical period that has always haunted popular imagination."

-- The Mumbai Mirror
