Product description

Review

"A stunning presentation of narrative ethnography, achieving the remarkable feat of forcing the reader to enter into the world--and the world view--of those whom most of us would regard as terrorists. The issues this book raises cannot be ignored."--Mark Juergensmeyer, University of California, Santa Barbara

"Highly recommended."--"Library Journal"

"Mahmood brilliantly interweaves Sikh militants' narratives--their aspirations, fears, beliefs, and actions--with an understanding of India's Khalistan movement in particular and of contemporary political conflict in general. . . . "Fighting for Faith and Nation" provides the theoretical and methodological tools for understanding the politics of violence and militancy and the troubled concepts of nation and freedom. More important, it provides a sensitive and responsible approach to difficult and contentious issues--to matters, literally, of life and death."--Carolyn Nordstrom, University of California, Berkeley
