Rate this:
Offers historical, sociological, political, and geographical perspectives on one of the ethnic factions fighting the bitter civil war in Sri Lanka. The history and legitimacy of Tamil cultural identity is one of the points of contention in the conflict, and the nine essays reflect a pro-Tamil stance. They trace a distinct historical origin, discuss colonial rule, the caste system, land settlement policy, and the rise of military separatist and secessionist movements.
