Listening to the voices of people who experience political violence - either as victims or as perpetrators - gives new insights into both the sources of violent conflict and the potential for its resolution. Going beyond such easy labels as \"fundamentalism\" and \"terrorism,\" Mahmood shows how complex and multifaceted the human experience of political violence actually is. Drawing on her extensive interviews and conversations with Sikh militants, she presents their accounts of the human rights abuses they suffer in India as well as their explanations of the philosophical tradition of martyrdom and meaningful death in the Sikh faith. While demonstrating how divergent the worldviews of participants in a conflict can be, Fighting for Faith and Nation gives reason to hope that our essential common humanity may provide grounds for a pragmatic resolution of conflicts like the one in Punjab, which has claimed tens of thousands of lives in the past fifteen years.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/867995377<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Electronic books<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isPartOf<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/867995377#Series\/series_in_contemporary_ethnography<\/a>> ; # Series in contemporary ethnography.<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isSimilarTo<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/oclc\/35280600<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:name<\/a> \"Fighting for faith and nation : dialogues with Sikh militants<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:productID<\/a> \"44966032<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:publication<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/44966032#PublicationEvent\/philadelphia_university_of_pennsylvania_press_1997<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:publisher<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/867995377#Agent\/university_of_pennsylvania_press<\/a>> ; # University of Pennsylvania Press<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/VH7QX3XE2P.search.serialssolutions.com\/?V=1.0&L=VH7QX3XE2P&S=JCs&C=TC0000154649&T=marc&tab=BOOKS<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/www.myilibrary.com?id=321065<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/library.faulkner.edu:2048\/login?url=http:\/\/www.netLibrary.com\/urlapi.asp?action=summary&v=1&bookid=17356<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/www.aspresolver.com\/aspresolver.asp?ANTH;1759353<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/www.netLibrary.com\/urlapi.asp?action=summary&v=1&bookid=17356<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/ebookcentral.proquest.com\/lib\/uvic\/detail.action?docID=3441425<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/www.jstor.org\/stable\/10.2307\/j.ctt3fhs4b<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/muse.jhu.edu\/books\/9780812200171\/<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/doi.org\/10.9783\/9780812200171<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/muse.jhu.edu\/book\/193\/<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/public.ebookcentral.proquest.com\/choice\/publicfullrecord.aspx?p=3441425<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/search.ebscohost.com\/login.aspx?direct=true&scope=site&db=nlebk&db=nlabk&AN=17356<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/site.ebrary.com\/id\/10491882<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/www.myilibrary.com?id=321065&ref=toc<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9786613210654<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9780585127026<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9780812200171<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nwdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/44966032<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
