This important collection of essays by historians and sociologists focuses on riots in Sri Lanka, Pakistan, and the various regions of India. The contributors discuss the causes of conflict and their effects on the communities in which they occur. The book as a whole is one of the few sociological studies of rioting as an urban phenomenon, and will be of special interest to sociologists, anthropologists, and historians.
