The connection between religion, politics and violence is a controversial and pressing concern in the life of the subcontinent. This study attempts to unpick some of these linkages by means of a series of detailed historical case studies that cover the period from 1947 until 2002. The contributions from both leading experts and research students provide important comparative insights into sectarian and communal violence in India and Pakistan.
