Narratives of Terror, Communalism and Violence

Editor(s): Om Prakash Dwivedi
Contributors: Stephen Morton, Veronica Thompson, Dr Pascal Zinck, Pramond Nayar, Belen Martin-Lucas, Loius Harrington,

Book Description

This book engages with critical issues which create a proper understanding of how identities and belonging are imagined and constructed in postcolonial India. The contributors have examined various texts and movies to discuss the implicit communal nature of postcolonial India. The book attempts to discuss the different ways in which India is badly plagued by communal politics and terrorism, and to offer a cogent alternative for creating a strong solidarity among different communities in India.
