This book is an anthropological study located along India's western border with Pakistan. The core arguments are situated within the context of contemporary religious nationalism, communal strife, and border politics in the state of Gujarat. It is a detailed ethno-historical account of a highly under-researched area, an exploration into the political contexts of memory, the subjective experience of place, and the socio-cultural production of a political border.
