Jammu and Kashmir: Essays in Society, Culture and Politics provides useful insights into the issues related to the State of Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) in India. J&K with a population of 12.55 million is a unique State in many ways. It is strategically located at the northwest border of India and has been witness to several wars with continual border skirmishes, conflict and displacement of people, both internally and externally. It has virtually become a home for the migrants as much as it has offered opportunities of employment for people from different States. It is the only Muslim majority State in India, with Hindus, Buddhists and Sikhs being significant minorities. The State has a rich culture and a history of religious pluralism. The three regions- Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh are quite different from each other having their own specialities and problems. Again, J&K is the only State in India that has a special status under Article 370 of the Constitution of India (1950) and has its own Constitution (1957). Written almost exclusively by the Ph.D. research scholars of the Department of Sociology, University of Jammu (India), the sixteen essays in this book bring out succinctly the various aspects exhibiting these unique features of J&K. The papers on culture and religion based on ethnographic data reveal the diversity in the modes of worship of people of the State from folk to pan-Indian forms. The papers on gender show how women in the State of Jammu and Kashmir unlike in other States of India are deprived from their fundamental rights of residence, property and employment among others and, how do they and the girl children continue to suffer from sexual abuse depicted in the adversely declining sex-ratio of the State. In a few areas, as some of the papers bring out, the State of J&K has done comparatively well like Panchayat Adalat, a judicial dispute resolving mechanism at the grassroots level or land reforms. However, a lot more needs to be done as shown in the papers on inheritance and land rights, reservation policy, caste-based discrimination, labour migrant influx, and problems of urban life. Some of these papers have definite policy implications. Taken together, the essays in the volume offer an incisive understanding of the various dimensions of the State of Jammu and Kashmir - gender, politics, culture, religion, caste, communities and cities. The book will be a useful reference for those interested to know and study about social life in the State of Jammu and Kashmir in varied forms, and for the academics, researchers, administrators and policy makers
