Communal Violence and Minorities

Gujarat Society in Ferment

Edited by: Lancy Lobo, Biswaroop Das

The 2002 Gujarat riots witnessed the rise of a spate of writings on related issues in India as well as abroad. The present volume, though deals with the same subject, adds some newer dimensions to its understanding. These include an analysis of the spread of these riots; contents, causes and nature of violence; actors and agencies perpetrating and facilitating its sustenance; response of tribals and dalits to these events; socio-political determinants of perpetuating as well as thwarting the effects of such riots and the cognitive construction of communal images among the rural population in Central Gujarat during the aftermath of these unprecedented riots in the State.
