What People are Saying About This

Partha Chatterjee

A product of outstanding historical-ethnographic research, Zamindar's book tells like no one has done before the maddeningly tangled story of how, in the years after the partition of 1947, India and Pakistan actually came to separate their territories, properties, and peoples into two sovereign states. Her ability to weave into a single narrative the national and the local, the administrative and the personal, the everyday and the epochal, is truly remarkable. A pathbreaking contribution to modern South Asian studies.

Partha Chatterjee, author of The Politics of the Governed: Reflections on Popular Politics in Most of the World
