Product Specification & Summary

About Book
The Partition of British India in 1947 into the new nations of India and Pakistan, and the transformation of East Pakistan into a third nation, Bangladesh, in 1971, were events marked by violence, displacement, and multiple alienation's.
In her brilliant new book, Ananya Jahanara Kabir discusses their impact, three generations later, on contemporary cultural producers from Bangladesh, India and Pakistan. Literary texts, archaeological digs, photographs, maps and other memorabilia are woven together to present a groundbreaking consideration of Partition.
Kabir’s account departs from previous Partition scholarship by arguing for 1947 and 1971 as linked epochal events; by excavating the connections between violence, memory, melancholia and modernity; and by bringing considerations of family, inter-generational dialogue, and subjectivity to a new memory studies of South Asia.
