Revisiting India’s Partition: New Essays on Memory, Culture, and Politics is a contributory volume on the Partition of India on the eve of Independence. 19 essays include decolonisation and post-colony, economic development and nation-building, cross-border skirmishes, terrorism, and nationalism. The volume covers areas beyond Punjab and Bengal and includes analyses of Sindh, Kashmir, Hyderabad, and more broadly South India, the Northeast, and Burma. It, in fact, extends and expands on the original notion of the ‘Long Partition’ to examine the cultural, political, economic, and psychological impact the Partition continues to have on communities in South Asia and throughout the diaspora.
