Sri Lanka Biography Of an Island
Author : Eric Meyer
Translated From the French by Kristie Segond-Baldwin, Edited by Ashley Halpe
Publisher : Viator Publications
New Edition 2003
The fate of this small country, which lies strategically at the southernmost point of India, is determined by forces beyond its control. Far from the images of paradise that its name conjures up, there exists the reality of an island shaken to the core for over three decades by a series of crises stemming from the separatist demands of its Tamil minority and the assertion of identity of its Sinhalese majority. Sri Lanka possesses a number of advantages, how-ever: a democratic system;an open, global economy; a controlled demography; and an educated, enterprising population. For some analysts, the island’s future depends on its ability to go beyond the outdated political system of Nation- State that no longer seems to have its place in an increasingly globalised world .keeping these theories in mind, without accepting them outright, this book attempts to pin- point, though a study of the island’s past and present histories, what constitutes the basis of its multiple identities, which have been constantly nourished by outside elements and shaped over the past two thousand years.
