Making Peace with Partition
Making Peace with Partition
Description
From the Flap

The Partition of the Indian subcontinent in 1947 left a legacy of hostility and bitterness that has bedeviled relations between India and Pakistan for over fifty-five years. The two countries, both nuclear powers now, have fought three wars since Independence and have twice come to the brink of war in recent years. Each of their attempts to make peace has failed, and each failure has added a new layer of anger and mistrust to existing animosities.

So what will it take for India and Pakistan to put the long shadows of Partition behind them, once and for all.

Reviewing the turbulent history of their past relationship, Radha Kumar analyses the chief obstacles the two countries face and looks afresh, in particular, at the Kashmir conflict, in the light of the new opportunities and challenges that the twenty-first century presents. Kumar’s comparisons with partition-related peace processes in Bosnia, Ireland, Cyprus and Israel-Palestine offer a radically different perspective on the prospects for peace between India and Pakistan, and illuminate the key elements that go into a successful peace process.

Lucid, incisive and optimistic, Radha Kumar’s essay, written at a time when a new peace process between India and Pakistan has begun to unfold, challenges received wisdom as it argues persuasively that the South Asian neighbours are today better placed to make peace than ever before.

Radha Kumar, a Visiting Professor at the Jamia Millia University, was formerly a Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York, and Director of its project of Ethnic Conflicts and Peace Process. Her previous books include Divide and fall? Bosnia in the Annals of Partition and A History of Doing: An Illustrated Account of Movements for Women’s Rights and Feminism in India, 1800-1990.

Back of the Book

‘Kumar has broken through decades of hostilities and clichés to write the most important book on the India-Pakistan conflict for a generation,’
-Ahmed Rashid

‘A refreshingly new look at India-Pakistan relations from their inception to the present times…Accurate, unbiased and lucid.’
-Khushwant Singh

Interrogating India is a new series that looks at the common sense prevailing on some of the most pressing issues of our times. Provocative and issues of our times. Provocative and incisive, it has essays on themes ranging from secularism and terrorism to political representation and language, which figure prominently in today’s middle-class discourse. Passionate, accessible and opinionated, these reflections from some of India’s best minds should help us make better sense of the public debate on these issues while, hopefully, provoking us to respond to the challenges they present.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.
Evelyn, Desoto, Texas.

Muhammad Arshad Nadeem
It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
Andreas, Germany.
