Enduring Violence

Everyday Life and Conflict in Eastern Sri Lanka

Rebecca Walker

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Examination of everyday violence draws on a recent body of anthropological literature and brings it to bear upon Sri Lanka at a critical moment in its history
  • Makes a significant contribution to the anthropology of violence within and beyond the bounds of Sri Lanka
  • Provides a concrete, ethnographically grounded and theoretically rich sense of the relation between violence and the everyday at a time when this relation could be (re)interpreted for the sake of post-conflict reconciliation
  • Raises questions of ethical responsibility in situations of ongoing violence, and asks fundamental questions about what it is to do ethnography in the face of violence
  • Written in an engaging, accessible and jargon-free style
