about

The Partition of British India into the nations of India and Pakistan in 1947 and the further redrawing of the borders in 1971 to create Bangladesh were major, wrenching events whose effects are still felt today in the everyday lives of people in all three nations in fundamental ways-yet these events have never been explored in all their aspects.

This volume gathers essays from scholars in a variety of fields that explore substantial new ground in Partition research, looking into such under-studied areas as art, literature, migration, and, crucially, notions of "foreignness" and "belonging," among many others. It will be required reading for any scholars of the recent history, politics, and culture of the subcontinent.
Urvashi Butalia is the director and founder of Zubaan and the author and editor of numerous books, including The Other Side of Silence: Voices from the Partition of India.
