Summary
"Partition-the physical division of territory along ethno-religious lines into separate nation-states-is often presented as a successful political "solution" to ethnic conflict. In the twentieth century, new nation-states-the Irish Free State, the Dominions (later Republics) of India and Pakistan, and the State of Israel-emerged as the result of partition, all in contexts of extreme violence. This volume offers the first collective history of the concept of partition, tracing its emergence in the aftermath of the First World War and locating its genealogy in the politics of twentieth-century empire and decolonization. Making use of the transnational framework of the British Empire, which presided over the three major partitions of the twentieth century, this volume uncovers concrete connections among the cases of Ireland, India, and Palestine-the mutual influences, shared personnel, economic justifications, and material interests that propelled the idea of partition forward and resulted in the violent creation of new post-colonial political spaces. Contributors engage a wide variety of regional perspectives and methodologies in order to challenge the idea that partition represented an answer to problems of ethnic strife."--
