The Gujarat Carnage
Asghar Ali Engineer
Orient Blackswan, 2003 - Genocide - 467 pages
This book is a compilation of articles, editorial, investigative reports, surveys, memoranda and other significant material on the Gujarat carnage. The final report of the Human Rights Commission (that took a direct interest for the first time, of its own accord, in communal violence) is included in it. Useful material and information will be found in it by future researchers, academics and lay readers. As the specific event of the grim year are blurred and glossed over by other issues and by time, it is important to have such a compilation that preserves the lessons learnt in one of the most horrifying and ominous periods in India s modern history.

It was only one sided story all around and trying to make majority guilty for one occasion, and that even kind of situation been created by extremist. Not a trustworthy book at all. You may even realized by simple googling the facts and the reports. This is book is part of some intellectual's propaganda to guilty majority and just based on thoughts and wage logic. The reality is totally different than mentioned here.
