"This collection contains nineteen interdisciplinary essays that explore the continuing cultural, political, and social impact of the Partition on India, Pakistan and Bangladesh as well as in the South Asian diaspora. It focuses on neglected areas in the existing scholarship on the subject--themes as well as regions within South Asia--that illustrate Vazira Zamindar's idea of a 'Long Partition'"--Provided by pubolisher.
