Ethnic Conflict and Civic Life by Ashutosh Varshney
Book DescriptionThis timely book, updated for the paperback edition, examines how civic ties between Hindus and Muslims in different Indian cities serve to contain, or even prevent, ethnic violence. It is of interest not only to South Asian scholars and policymakers but also to those studying multiethnic societies in other areas of the world. "An outstanding work of social science, one of the most important studies of ethnic violence to appear in many years."--Samuel P. Huntington, author of The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order "An important breakthrough in understanding the problem of ethnic conflict globally."--Robert Putnam, author of Bowling Alone, as quoted in the New York Times "A lasting contribution to our understanding of how to tackle the roots of communal violence in India."--Radha Kumar, Foreign Affairs "Scholars have hailed [Varshney's] book as a major breakthrough, while the United Nations has already adopted his method to study Muslim-Christian violence in Indonesia."--New York Times "A timely, groundbreaking study."--Kenneth J. Cooper, Boston Globe "Impressive...Varshney's findings are intuitively satisfying and also useful. It was a pleasure to discover work so uniformingly rigorous and admirable in its theory, methodology, empiricism, and ethnicality."--Rick A. Eden, The Key Reporter
