This book is a valuable collection of essays which looks at the multi-faceted interactions between ethnic activism, civil society and states in South Asia, particularly India and Nepal and the several tensions and contradictions that characterize these interactions. It is a valuable ethnographic study of the internal dynamics (and their interaction with external dynamics) that shape and mutate ethnic identities in the sub-continent….
These are six well-researched articles on ethnic activism in South Asia. A fairly wide range has been examined…. At a time when South Asia is bubbling over with ethnic aspirations, this is an important collection of contemporary insights into the politics of identity behind activism in South Asia.
The volume…takes a bold and clear but contentious position…. This volume would be of interest to the students of civil society, ethnicity and politics. One appreciable thing…is the uniformly lucid style of presentation of rich empirical material and conceptual issues in the entire volume, which is rare to find in an edited book.
The book is a must-read for those who maintain a profound interest in civil society issues and, yes, it should be sought out by young men and women desirous of becoming activists themselves…the book offers rare insight and a definitive sense of the road we can take for energising social activism.
