About this book

Since 1989, when the movement for Kashmiri independence took the form of an armed insurgency, it has been one of the most highly militarized regions in the world. This book is based on the idea that preserving memory is central to the struggle for justice and to someday rebuild a society shattered by two decades of armed conflict.

Reviews

“Mathur accomplished her research working in a conflict zone, earning the trust of the people who are constantly surveilled and often punished for speaking out, no ordinary feat. Given the paucity of research available on the human impact of the conflict, her research is an invaluable resource for future researchers interested in pursuing other aspect of this very important work.” (Idrisa Pandit, Greater Kashmir, greaterkashmir.com, July, 2016)


"The [Jammu and Kashmir] dispute is a convolution of historical idiosyncrasy, legal ambiguity and political injustice. But scholarly descriptions almost always fail to portray the anguish of its peoples. Mathur captures that academic space by rigorously interrogating the state violence physical and mental that is endured by Kashmiris every day. The Human Toll of the Kashmir Conflict provides the vital link between aloof polemic and analysis Kashmir's pain." - Siddiq Wahid, Former Director, Institute of Kashmir Studies, University of Kashmir, Jammu and Kashmir
