Since the late 1970s civil war has left Sri Lanka in an almost permanent state of crisis. Conventional histories of the country by liberal and Marxist scholars in the last twenty years have tended to focus on the state's failure to accommodate the needs and demands of the minorities. The entire history of the twentieth century has been traced to this one key issue. Sri Lanka in the Modern Age offers a fresh perspective based on new research. Above all, Nira Wickramasinghe has written a history of the people of Sri Lanka rathen a history of the nation-state.
