Item description for Partition and Genocide Manifestation of Violence in Punjab 1937-1947 by Anders Bjorn Hansen...

Comparatively little has been written about communal violence in the Punjab during the decade preceding independence. There has been little attempt to understand this period as the pre-history of the partition related massacres and migrations that claimed so many Punjabi victims. In one important respect this lacunae reflects the understanding developed in this book by Anders Bjorn Hansen that the August 1947 violence was qualitatively different to the communal riots of an earlier era. Undoubtedly not only in its extent and level of organization, but in the invasion of the private sphere in which women were the chief sufferers, there was an added horror in 1947 to what had come before. Moreover, as Anders Bjorn Hansen demonstrates, the violence became uncontrollable not just because of the collapse of the administrative machinery in the wake of partition, but bcause of the disorder in the Punjab countryside which had previously been relatively tranquil. A final difference was the use of violence to "ethnically cleanse" minority communities. It should be noted that this had its antecedents in the March 1947 attacks on minority communities in the Rawalpindi division of Punjab. Ethnic cleansing had also lain behind the so-called communal war of succession in Lahore throughout the months preceding the British departure and the publication of the partition boundary award. Nonetheless, it is important, as this work does, to focus not just on the communal violence of 1947, but on the disorders during the preceding decade.
