  • The Kashmiri Pandit certainly occupies a difficult political location today; this work explores the social position of the displaced Pandits from camps to the larger city of Jammu and their relationship to nationalisms both Indian and Kashmiri, and the state.
  • This book looks at dispossession of those who do not come across as stereotypical victims. This book is a contribution to Kashmiri studies
