Marginal Nation by Ranabir Samaddar
Book DescriptionThis book demonstrates how transborder migrations from Bangladesh to India have had the effect of marginalizing the construct of the nation-state. It demystifies the concepts of 'borders' and 'national identity' by bringing to the fore the viewpoints of the migrants themselves. The author shows how the flow of people across the border is prompted by historical and social affinities, geographical contiguity and issues of economic survival. All these go to marginalize the 'nation' in the consciousness of the people who have little use for postcolonial borders.

Author Biography - Ranabir Samaddar
Ranabir Samaddar is the Director of the Calcutta Research Group, Kolkata, and belongs to the school of critical thinking. He has worked extensively on issues of justice and rights in the context of conflicts in South Asia. Samaddar's particular researches have spread over a wide area comprising migration and refugee studies, the theory and practices of dialogue, nationalism and postcolonial statehood in South Asia, and new regimes of technological restructuring and labour control. His recent political writings The Emergence of the Political Subject (2009) and The Nation Form (2012) have signalled a new turn in critical postcolonial thinking and have challenged some of the prevailing accounts of the birth of nationalism and the nation state.
