This work examines the long-standing conflict between India and Pakistan over Kashmir, exploring the issues from the perpsectives of all the actors involved. The contributors reevaluate the Kashmir problem in the context of the revival of the dispute in 1990 and as an outgrowth of the politics of integration and separatism in South Asia since the partition of British India in 1947. By assessing Kashmir both as an individual case study and as an example of the broader problems of nation-building in South Asia, this book provides insights into other regional conflicts and illuminates the broad question of national integration policies on the Indian subcontinent.
