A Division Of The Spoils




This fourth and final title is a moving and fitting conclusion to Paul Scott's masterpiece, The Raj Quartet.

As the British presence moves inexorably into its last days, the fall of the Empire signals the end of an era, and a new beginning. For the Hindus and Muslims, the political reality signals inevitable post-war recrimination and future territorial wrangles. And for the British - for the Laytons, Merrick and Guy Perron - the final partings are swallowed into the great upheaval.

Praise for A Division Of The Spoils

“Its two great and time-resting virtues are, first, the extraordinary range of characters it so skilfully portrays and, second, its powerful evocation of the last days of British India”
