LAHORE @ PARTITION VIOLENCE, CROSS-MIGRATION, AND REGENERATION 1947-1961 By (author) ADNAN TARIQ

This book provides a comprehensive perspective on violence, distinguishing it from prior literature that often leans towards assigning blame to one of the involved parties.

With a deft utilization of archival sources and a seamless integration of secondary materials, the author crafts a narrative that stands distinct from any previously explored. A particularly intriguing facet of this research lies in the foregrounding of indigenous voices, shedding light on how the people of Lahore navigated the turbulent aftermath of partition.

With a comprehensive exploration of the city’s journey through Partition, the tumultuous communal conflicts, and subsequent regeneration, this work stands as a significant scholarly contribution. The author’s in-depth analysis illuminates the complex dynamics of violence during Partition, migration, and socio-political change, painting a vivid portrait of Lahore’s resilience in the face of adversity.

The author’s forays into the processes of “cross migration” and “patterns of migrant settlement” lend further depth to the study. On top of this, the non-partisan approach of the author will make it worth reading for general readers and scholars across South Asia.
