Divided Countries, Separated Cities
Divided Countries, Separated Cities
Description
About the Author:

For over a century, partition has been considered the only solution when transaction, and politics, have failed. But can partition really provide a long-term solution to a conflict or even prevent further conflict? How peaceful is life in cities that have been separated?

This interesting collection of writings presents sensitive, complex, and wide-ranging reflections on the modern phenomenon of partition. The essays consider the mechanisms of nation-building in partition, both post-colonial and in the context of post-1989 transitions in Eastern Europe and the Balkans, and analyses whether the partition of the Indian subcontinent should be considered a paradigm case.

The particular histories of nationalism and partition are different in the countries involved, but the commonalities in the painful universality of the experience, and in the narrative structures, state and nation-building strategies, patriarchal patterns of control, and mechanisms of inclusion and exclusion are striking. The texts engage in critical thinking about processes such as fragmentation and exclusion, placing them in perspective in the historical event of partition.

This thought-provoking volume, sharply analytical yet lucidly written, will attract analytical yet lucidly written, will attract scholars and students of history, sociology, politics, urban studies, and cultural studies, as also the interested lay reader.

Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
B. Werts, USA
