Reflections in 2010 on the end of the Eelam Wars

Sanjana Hattotuwa and Others: The end of war in Sri Lanka: Reflections and challenges was organised by GROUNDVIEWS in 2010. The GV Editor is now proceeding to organise another set of reflections on events and processes since then that will probably encompass the previous histories as well. This internet-book will appear in 2014. There may be many people out there who are not aware of the previous edition and could profit from visiting its possibilities. Even those so aware may wish to ponder over some of the arguments therein.  SO let me introduce you to this treasure trove.

DAWnThe end of war in Sri Lanka is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iPad, and with iTunes on your computer. Multi-touch books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iPad. Books with interactive features may work best on an iPad. It was made into a PDF. To service requests for the book from the diaspora and international community, it was reproduced as the country’s first iBook available on Apple’s iTunes Book Store for free.  The PDF can be downloaded from
