One in every five people in the world comes from the vast subcontinent known as South Asia. Each of its countries - including Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bhula and the Maldives - has its own political, social and economic problems. Each has sought its own solutions with varying results. "An Introduction to South Asia" presents the geographical and historical background to the diversities of the region. From the legacy of the colonial period, and the controversies that surrounded partition and independence, the book traces the consequences of social divisions - particularly of religion, caste and language - into contemporary politics. Interwoven issues on environments, sociology, politics and economies, explain development patterns and problems, the processes behind them, and the reciprocal impact of South Asia and the wider world. This updated second edition provides material on the role of women in the regions, environmental issues, and the causes and consequences of natural disasters. It aims to provide a comprehensive, interdisciplinary guide to the varying environments - natural, social and economic - that characterize South Asia.
