( March 31, 2014, New Delhi, Sri Lanka Guardian) The Conflation is a new book edited by Niantha Ilangamuwa, which contains a collection of interviews with scholars, activists and institutional officers that he conducted during the last few years as a career journalist.
On reviewing the book, Dr. Binoy Kampmark, who was a Commonwealth Scholar at Selwyn College, Cambridge, pointed out, “This emotional, powerful work primarily examines the war-torn past of Sri Lanka and the role of the Tamils in their struggle for self-determination”.
“It features various interviews conducted by the author over the past decade. While focusing on Sri Lanka, the author also broadens his discussion in these interviews on subjects such as torture, the erosion of civil liberties in the West, and the role of the International Criminal Court. The wide array of powerful interviews will provide readers with a valuable historical document,” he added.
Ilangamuwa frequently writes on Sri Lanka and his views have appeared widely in publications such as Counter Punch, Counter Currents and the national and international media.
