'This book addresses the concept and definition of peace, and the purpose and meaning of peace studies from a regional perspective... the book challenges the narrow approach that limits peace studies to studies of conflict resolution or conflict management. It draws attention to the social and political realities of the colonial and post-colonial world and the need for 'peace with justice'' - Journal of Peace Research The South Asian Peace Studies series has been conceived to showcase significant writings on peace studies in South Asia. The emphasis is on essays which demonstrate the importance of changing direction in various frameworks - from conflict management to peace, from national security to human security, from revenge to reconciliation, and from rights to justice. This inaugural volume introduces the concept, scope and main concerns of peace studies. The 19 essays are grouped into three broad sections. The first discusses the definition of peace studies and its main themes. The second part looks at recent cases of conflict in the region, while the third considers new paths to conflict resolution based on dialogue and justice.

Dr. Ranabir Samaddar is the Director of the Calcutta Research Group, and belongs to the school of critical thinking. He has pioneered along with others peace studies programmes in South Asia. He has worked extensively on issues of justice and rights in the context of conflicts in South Asia. The much-acclaimed The Politics of Dialogue (Ashgate, 2004) was the culmination of his work on justice, rights, and peace. His particular researches have been on migration and refugee studies, the theory and practices of dialogue, nationalism and post-colonial statehood in South Asia, and new regimes of technological restructuring and labour control. He authored a three-volume study of Indian nationalism, (Whose Asia Is It Anyway a nation and The Region in South Asia, 1996, The Marginal Nation a Transborder Migration from Bangladesh to West Bengal, 1999, and A Biography of the Indian Nation, 1947-1997, 2001). His recent political writings published in the form of a 2 volume account, The Materiality of Politics (Anthem Press, 2007), and the just published The Emergence of the Political Subject (Sage, 2009) have challenged some of the prevailing accounts of the birth of nationalism and the nation state, and have signalled a new turn in critical post-colonial thinking.
