Log-in for full text

Ever since South Asia won its independence from British rule, the former princely state of Kashmir has represented a major source of tension in terms of both relations between India and Pakistan, and India’s own internal political arrangements. This chapter accordingly explores the historical roots of the twenty-first-century political passions that Kashmir continues to generate. By looking at political developments that took place during and after 1947–48, it contextualises the intense present-day challenges that Kashmir still generates for the region and its people.
