University of Washington professor Cabeiri deBergh Robinson, who teaches in the South Asia Studies program at the Jackson School of International Studies, visits with Body of Victim, Body of Warrior: Refugee Families and the Making of Kashmiri Jihadists (University of California Press), a timely, important book drawn from years of fieldwork in the disputed region of Kashmir contested by India and Pakistan. "Body of Victim, Body of Warrior is an exceptional account of refugee populations and the making of mujahideen in Jammu and Kashmir. This book covers a great deal of contested historical ground, always with sensitivity and intelligence. Robinson's skilled ethnography is all the more persuasive in that her contemporary observations are grounded in a dense and revelatory political history." – Suvir Kaul, University of Pennsylvania. Special thanks to the South Asia Studies program at the Jackson School for International Studies, University of Washington, for its assistance with this evening.
