Product Overview

"Ethnic Attachments in Sri Lanka" examines the uses of ethnic identity in Sri Lankan society from the early medieval period through the present day. It takes account of the religious assertion of ethnicity in the early medieval period and Sabaratnam traces the cultural geography of ethnic regions under Portuguese and Dutch rule, and how institutional collaboration between British rulers and the upper levels of the native population resulted in a class society. He argues that the present civil war is due to competitive politics, which have heightened differences in religion and language.
