Revisiting India’s Partition: New Essays on Memory, Culture, and Politics is a contributory volume on the Partition of India on the eve of Independence. There are 19 essays in the book drawn from interdisciplinary backgrounds on several topics pertaining to the Partition, including decolonisation and post-colony, economic development and nation-building, cross-border skirmishes, terrorism, and nationalism. The volume covers areas beyond Punjab and Bengal and includes analyses of Sindh, Kashmir, Hyderabad, and more broadly South India, the Northeast, and Burma. It, in fact, extends and expands on the original notion of the ‘Long Partition’ to examine the cultural, political, economic, and psychological impact the Partition continues to have on communities in South Asia and throughout the diaspora. Useful for scholars in literary and cultural studies, history, political studies, sociology, Asian/South Asian studies, and women’s studies, the book has a thought-provoking introduction which provides a multi-vocal, multi-focal, transnational commentary on the Partition in relation to motifs, texts, and regions that have earlier been ignored. Printed Pages: 400.
