This important tract is essential reading for anyone who is concerned with the future of Kashmir, and with the problem of regionalism, communalism and terrorism.

This work attempts to understand the nature and historical roots of the insurgency in Kashmir. It traces the complicated history of the early years after independence when the stability of Kashmir was the subject of intense debate, and examines the process through which the emotional ties between Kashmir and the rest of the country were eroded and basis of secular and democratic politics in the region were weakened. As the Indian state lost its legitimacy, militant groups gained popular support.

This tract attempts to understand the logic of terrorism and secession and reflects on the ways in which such forces can be politically contained and democratic processes of Kashmir be re-introduced.
