An authoritative, fresh, and vividly written account of the Kashmir conflict—from 1947 to the present

The India-Pakistan dispute over Kashmir is one of the world’s incendiary conflicts. Since 1990, at least 60,000 people have been killed—insurgents, civilians, and military and police personnel. In 2019, the conflict entered a dangerous new phase. India’s Hindu nationalist government, under Narendra Modi, repealed Indian-administered Jammu and Kashmir’s autonomous status and divided it into two territories subject to New Delhi’s direct rule. The drastic move was accompanied by mass arrests and lengthy suspension of mobile and internet services.

In this definitive account, Sumantra Bose examines the conflict in Kashmir from its origins to the present volatile juncture. He explores the global context of the current situation, including China’s growing role, as well as the human tragedy of the people caught in the bitter dispute. Drawing on three decades of field experience in Kashmir, Bose asks whether a compromise settlement is still possible given the ascendancy of Hindu nationalism in India and the complex geopolitical context.
Sumantra Bose is one of the world’s foremost experts on the Kashmir conflict. He is the author of seven books including Contested Lands: Israel-Palestine, Kashmir, Bosnia, Cyprus and Sri Lanka and Secular States, Religious Politics: India, Turkey, and the Future of Secularism.
