Fully revised and updated for the 70th anniversary. The stroke of midnight on 15 August 1947 liberated 400 million Indians from the British Empire. One of the defining moments of world history had been brought about by a tiny number of people, including Jawaharlal Nehru, the fiery prime minister to be; Gandhi, the mystical figure who enthralled a nation; and Louis and Edwina Mountbatten, the glamorous but unlikely couple who had been dispatched to get Britain out of India without delay. Within hours of the midnight chimes, however, the two new nations of India and Pakistan would descend into anarchy and terror. Indian Summer depicts the epic sweep of events that ripped apart the greatest empire the world has ever seen, and reveals the secrets of the most powerful players on the world stage: the Cold War conspiracies, the private deals, and the intense and clandestine love affair between the wife of the last viceroy and the first prime minister of free India. With wit, insight and a sharp eye for detail, Alex von Tunzelmann relates how a handful of people changed the world for ever.

Invisible, indefinissiable, malfaisante, la "chose" rode autour de lui. L'homme est pris de fievres, d'insomnies, de cauchemars. L'eau de sa carafe disparait, la tige d'une rose se brise sous ses yeux, les pages de son livre tournent d'elles-memes. A l'angoisse succedent la peur puis l'epouvante. Qui est cet Autre qui maintenant crie son nom, "le Horla"? "C'est lui, lui le Horla, qui me hante! Il est en moi, il devient mon ame; je le tuerai!" Le theme de la folie court comme un motif effrayant chez Maupassant. Mais Le Horla, journal d'un fou, demeure l'oeuvre d'un artiste au sommet de son art, une des plus troublantes de la litterature fantastique.
