War Making and State Building: the Politics of State Reform in Sri Lanka

scan0003war making and state building’ traces the failure of democratic state reform in the past thirty years in Sri Lanka through a deep and well articulated study of dominant discursive framing of the Sri Lanka Tamil insurrection as ‘terrorism’ and political reform as illegitimate.
