Militarism and Care in Kashmir

The Occupied Clinic

Book Pages: 240 Illustrations: 28 illustrations Published: October 2020

Author: Saiba Varma


The Occupied Clinic situates psychiatry as humanitarian state strategy in Kashmir. Saiba Varma offers us a beautifully crafted ethnography, providing political insight without objectifying the recipients of care as victims or sufferers. She articulates the place of mental health and the nuances and difficulties of everyday psychiatric practice in a state of exception that has come to be normalized over decades of military occupation. The need for such an analysis, at once poignant and nonpolemical, cannot be overstated.” — Kaushik Sunder Rajan, author of Pharmocracy: Value, Politics and Knowledge in Global Biomedicine
