At the time of its independence in 1948, sri lanka--or ceylon, as it was then called --was a torchbearer in social and human development among the newly independent countries of the third world. Blessed with nature's beauty as well as bounty, the post-independence history of this pearl of an island has been partly written in tears and blood. The reasons for this tragic episode, the author of the present book argues, have to do with the incapacity of a people to come to terms with a pluralistic poity and society in the post-colonial period. The present book surveys the island-nation's colourful past and enigmatic present and seeks to provide an insightful introduction to the general reader about this multi-dimensional and significant nation of the south asia.
