Reviews

This crucial, timely volume not only explicates the political situation of Kashmir; it offers a paradigm-shifting example of place as relational praxis. From the critique of area studies and state-centric analytics to the attention to the ethics of knowledge production, the editors and contributors make a trenchant case for why Kashmir both illuminates and connects with numerous other liberation movements around the world. As such, The Routledge Handbook of Critical Kashmir Studies is a brilliant envisioning of scholarship as solidarity that draws together and transforms indigenous, decolonial, intersectional and transnational thought. - Jasbir K. Puar, Professor and Graduate Director of Women's and Gender Studies at Rutgers University; author of 'Terrorist Assemblages' and 'The Right to Maim.' This pathbreaking interdisciplinary volume - grounded in feminist principles that are at once anti-colonial, anti-occupation, and anti-caste - brilliantly speaks to the urgency of self-determination for Kashmir. Challenging statist and area studies frameworks that typically privilege international relations and security studies, this rich collection features crucial epistemological interventions that enable the decolonial knowledge production necessary for political liberation - the best in Critical Kashmir Studies. - J. Kehaulani Kauanui, Professor of American Studies and an affiliate faculty member in Anthropology at Wesleyan University; author of 'Paradoxes of Hawaiian Sovereignty: Land, Sex, and the Colonial Politics of State Nationalism.' This handbook is a vital intellectual contribution to Kashmir studies. It provides essential space for the radical thinking, the Kashmiri voices, the feminist approaches, the anti-colonial critiques that have been decisively breaking apart dominant assumptions in mainstream scholarship on Kashmir. It will prompt us to think fundamentally differently about Kashmir, as well as more broadly about colonial occupation, about technologies of repression, about land, place, transnational solidarities, resistance, and more. And at a time when reactionary Hindu nationalism continues to take on more fascistic and Islamophobic forms, this handbook is also a crucial political contribution to knowledge and knowledge production.' - John Reynolds, Associate Professor, National University of Ireland, Maynooth; author of 'Empire, Emergency and International Law.'
