The search for durable peace in lands torn by ethno-national conflict is among the most urgent issues of international politics. Looking closely at five flashpoints of regional crisis, Sumantra Bose asks the questions upon which our global future may depend: how can peace be made, and kept, between warring groups with seemingly incompatible claims? Global in scope and implications but local in focus and method, Contested Lands critically examines the recent peace processes in Kashmir, Israel-Palestine, Bosnia, Cyprus and Sri Lanka for an answer. Israelis and Palestinians, Turkish and Greek Cupiots, Bosnia`a Muslims, Serbs and Croats, Sinhalese and Tamil Sri Lankans, and pro independence, pro- Pakistan, and pro- India Kashmiris share homelands scarred by clashing aspirations and war. Bose explains why these lands became zones of zero-sum conflict and boldly tackles the question of how durable peace can be achieved. The cases yield important general insights about the benefits of territorial self ?rule, cross-border linkages, regional cooperation, and third-party involvement- and the risks of a deliberately gradual (`incremental`) strategy of peace building. Rich in narrative and incisive in analysis, this book takes us deep into the heartlands of conflict- Jerusalem, Kashmir`s Line of Control, the divided cities of Mosstar in Bosnia and Nicosia in Cyprus, Sri Lanka`s Jaffna peninsula. Contested Lands illuminates how chronic confrontation can yield to compromise and coexistence in the world`s most troubled regions. Printed Pages: 336. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 27098

Neuware - NOMINATED for the Dayton Literary Peace Prize 2014 1948: As Jewish refugees, survivors of the Holocaust, struggle toward the new State of Israel, Arab refugees are fleeing, many under duress. Sixty years later, the memory of trauma has shaped both peoples' collective understanding of who they are. After a war, the victors write history. How was the story of the exiled Palestinians erased - from textbooks, maps, even the land How do Jewish and Palestinian Israelis now engage with the histories of the Palestinian Nakba ('Catastrophe') and the Holocaust, and how do these echo through the political and physical landscapes of their country Vividly narrated, with extensive original interview material, Contested Land, Contested Memory examines how these tangled histories of suffering inform Jewish and Palestinian-Israeli lives today, and frame Israel's possibilities for peace. 304 pp. Englisch. Artikel-Nr. 9781459710115
