Clayton. Monash University Publishing. 2019. Stock ID #163451
121pp, in paperback. What is happening inside the
world's most militarised zone?
This book is the result of
the authors' visit to the Kashmir Valley, the northernmost region of the Indian
subcontinent, in December 2016, but it encapsulates the experiences and
understanding of their many years of engagement with this part of the world.
`We wrote this book because
we felt it was important to document this particular period in the long,
troubled history of Kashmir because it marked for us a distinct phase of
repression; a phase that saw targeted killings as well as injuries and
blindings in flagrant defiance of humanitarian concerns and international norms
on the treatment of civilian populations in conflict zones.'
The authors provide a concise
history of the conflict in the valley and make a strong plea for humanity,
fairness and justice.
`A timely and valuable
contribution to the literature on Kashmir.' - Dr Priya Chacko, University of Adelaide (When referring to this item please quote stockid 163451).
