This marginalisation cuts across religion, caste and class barriers to make it an India, though the dimension and the degree may vary in rigidity.

It is indeed a rich and comprehensive compilation of contributions by eminent social scientist who have made even an academic assessment of impact of recent armed conflict in Jammu and Kashmir and Kargil on those who bore the brunt of endless mental and physical agony. Undoubtedly the assessment of each author is unique and Scholarly. The whole book would be very useful for teachers, scholars, students and social activists, intellectuals and socials scientists both in India and abroad.
