The Partition Motif in Contemporary Conflicts
This important book is a conversation across cultures on the theme of partition and its far-reaching sociological implications for communal patterns, generational dynamics, and individual lives. While the governing imagery of partition is drawn from the context of India and Pakistan, the analysis explores similar processes vis-à-vis Israel and Palestine and East and West Germany. Developing the concept of 'partition-societies', the volume succinctly explains the social, economic, and political implications of such divisions.
