Beschreibung

In 1971, a war in Pakistan resulted in the division of the country and the creation of Bangladesh. This book examines how literature by those who remained Pakistanis acts as a cultural response to the threat the war posed to a nationalist identity, exploring issues of the domestic sphere and the family, and the territorial limits of citizenship.
