Amitav Ghosh's modernist novel The Shadow Lines (1988), Rohinton Mistry's A Fine Balance (1995), the short stories of Saadat Hasan Manto, Salman Rushdie's post-modernist novel Shame (1983), and the "spectacular" films of Maniratnam all bear witness to social violence in South Asia. These works confront squarely the ethical dilemmas posed by representations of the catastrophes and innumerable minor tragedies that arise from clashes among religious and ethnic communities."--Jacket." ;
