This volume addresses the perspective of minority identities as they negotiate their terms of coexistence, accommodation and adaptation with several other competing identities within the framework of the nation state in South Asia. The essays cover a wide spectrum: the making of minority politics, the evolution of Naga nationalism and the construction of the territory-less Sylheti identity in India, the debates over Pashtun nationalism in Pakistan, the evolution of Muslim nationalism in Sri Lanka, the politics of religious minorities in Bangladesh and Pakistan, and the state of Islam and nationalism in colonial India. This will be of interest to students of politics, modern history, cultural studies and South Asian studies
