Attia Hosain (1913-1998), is one of the earliest women writers of the Indian diaspora. Despite the fact that her work was mainly written in the fifties and sixties, her reputation has been an enduring one. Her work has gone through several resurrections and continues to have both relevance and meaning. "The two sections of this volume, though written independently, complement each other. R.K. Kaul explores the historical and literary aspects of her work contextualising her within the Indian, and more specifically the Urdu, literary tradition while Jasbir Jain goes on to open out her work in many different ways locating her within the topos of exile. Exile is a subcategory of the diaspora, and defines itself by a withholding and an exclusion. "Together the two sections reveal the hidden depths of Hosain' s work and bring out not only its thematic richness, the partition theme, the dilemma of the Indian Muslim, the relationship with the Raj, the 239 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 38295

They seek to define, analyse, critique and contest its meanings, its history and implications. In the process of doing so, they are compelled to confront the plurality of its origins and the essential fluidity of the term. It is not possible to draw a linear graph of the development of postcolonialism because of the complexity of the concept. The identifiable political markers are not enough; there are other less visible ones which relate to the production of knowledge and attitudes of mind. Postcolonialism has affiliations with several disciplines. Looked upon both as an emancipatory strategy and a confining one, postcolonialism has both its negative and affirmative aspects. Of the twenty-five essays in this collection, seven are exclusively on theory and theoretical positions and critique and works of major postcolonial theorists like M.K. Gandhi, Edward Said, Ashis Nandy, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak and Aijaz Ahmad. They debate the issues presenting counterpoints to each other. Of the rest, four are on poetry, two each on drama and non-fiction and the rest on fiction, focusing on writers like Raja Rao, P. Parthasarthy, Chinua Achebe, Wole Soyinka, V.S. Naipaul, Salman Rushdie, Arun Kolatkar among others. One essay looks at imperial postcolonialism and two others move beyond postcolonialism. Identifying major postcolonial texts like Kanthapura, things fall apart and midnights children, the writers go on to explore the different conflictual levels and the strategies employed to resist hegemonic structures and to retrieve lost inheritances, sweeping away the residual elements of postcolonial literatures."

Item Description: Rawat, New Delhi, 2006. Hardbound. Book Condition: As New. New. Contents Preface. Prologue From the personal to the political. 1. Resisting the empire. 2. Splitting of the national subject. 3. Falls the shadow division and exile. 4. Patriarchy in the mirror. 5. Transformational strategies home and abroad. 6. Experiential versus classical aesthetics. 7. Time present. Epilogue Cultural texts and contexts. Endnotes. References. Index. Beyond Postcolonialism Dreams and Realities of a Nation questions the narrow framework that postcolonial provides and seeks to free resistance literature from being confined within it. Taking up the fiction of the last half century the work considers the dreams and realities that have engaged the attention of the writers from 1947 to the present across languages and regions focusing on the concerns of gender caste religion nation building and aesthetics both at home and in diasporic writing. The historical novel has leapt out of its earlier limits to take up a counter position to contemporary events. It is no longer a mere recording or an exoticism of the past instead it is an interrogation a self introspection and a face to face confrontation with the past that lays bare both the pain of suffering and the consciousness of the guilt of the nation. Dalit writing has also thrown up a challenge to classical aesthetics with its raw experience based narratives. A new realism has come into being a realism that exposes the roots rather than the mere surface and stretches the limits of existing modes. Working through these tropes of guilt and self analysis reworking the relationship between the individual and community the Indian novel today projects the need for an active intellectualism rooted in social concerns a need based on emotional logic and a constant questioning of one's relationship to the large totality. 304 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 59250

This one distortion of history with its disjunction between the minds of men and the course of events has gone on to produce other distortions. We are trapped in our histories. It has impacted relationships the notions of homeland and nation erased languages and cultures and given rise to a whole set of questions about self and identity. This volume consisting of an interleaving of fiction memoirs historical and political analysis moves into philosophical and psychological discussions and thus subjects partition to fresh reflection as debates about remembering and forgetting forgiving or persisting with hostilities are carried on. Individual essays and narratives written over nearly five decades represent the viewpoints of three generations across a cross section of society in terms of religions geographical locations and national borders as they move from migrations and uprooting violence and loss to reflect upon the human being in a larger existential framework. Essentially interdisciplinary in nature Reading Partition / Living Partition brings to the reader the work of distinguished writers and scholars of the subcontinent compelling the reader to probe her/his own conscience afresh. 338 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 62214

Variations on a theme water and Banaras/Santosh Gupta. Films Literature and Culture is a collection of nineteen essays that focus on Deepa Mehta's Elements Trilogy in order to explore the interconnections in the three categories and the manner in which they feed into each other. Films and literature are two mediums one literary the other performative which use language and image in order to capture the lived reality of cultural constructs. But the processes of producing meaning and interpreting meaning are complex and multilayered. They get caught up in histories locations and experiences. Neither film nor literature is a self contained autonomous medium or artifact and even as they use and produce culture they become its subverters. The range of the interpretative strategies is amazing social and political history gender positions and feminist theory cinematic frameworks and the theory of the gaze landscape space and exteriority diasporic location and relationship to the culture of origin religion and patriarchy the city and its history and the history of the making and reception of the three films fire 1947 Earth and water. The various interpretations provide a base for working out the psychodynamics of the relationship of the viewer with the text and invite the reader to participate in this multi directional debate between reality and representation. 258 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 66989

Women in Patriarchy Cross Cultural Readings is an anthology of twenty three pieces short stories essays extracts which tell their own story. Covering a period of two centuries and more they bring together a history of women's struggles across national boundaries and articulate their emotional and intellectual responses to patriarchal control and imposition. As each struggle leads to a new one and another frontier is opened women have changed their strategies and moved from reasoning to protest from silence to articulation from insanity and ostracism to self assertion and confidence. In the process they have also had to explore their strengths and weaknesses their sexualities and relationships and negotiate the barriers of colour and race. Divided into two sections the volume looks at fictional projections from India England Canada South Africa and United States. These narratives by women of the first world as well as third world nations look at childhood old age loneliness and work with bold strokes of comedy irony and radical ideology right from Kate Chopin to Githa Hariharan. The second section covers the debates of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries from Mary Wollstonecraft to Chandra Talpade Mohanty. Together the two sections seek to accord visibility to the Third World cross geographical and political barriers bring together the parallels focus on the differences and extend the boundaries of knowledge and understanding. 308 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 55806

Item Description: Rawat, 2012. Cultural Narratives Hybridity and Other Spaces is a collection of essays which concern themselves with the dialogic relations between narrative and space As they move from traditional folk and community narratives into hybrid spaces and urban locations the relationship between the two  narrative and space  reflects a spatial history of the telling of the tale Spatial concepts such as the personal and the political are in themselves abstractions concretely experienced and expressed only by a living agent The contestation between the two is of long standing with the interconnections becoming visible only in recent yearsCommunity narratives throw up the reality of spatial divisions and bring alive relationships which are fast disappearing in an urban world These narratives are vibrant and keep alive values of human sympathy compassion and understanding while urban narratives become fragmented temporary fluid and are compartmentalised through technology and the fluidity of spacesCreative writers and critics together explore these overlappings as they work with experiences and histories across time and cultures and invite the reader to participate in the opening out of these spatial metaphors in the contexts of both postmodern and postcolonial constructs 240 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 101414

Crossing Borders Post 1980 Subcontinental Writing in English explores the travelling of cultures ideas and peoples across geographic and genetic borders. It is amazing the kinds of borders that hedge us in some of which we construct and even cross at times without realizing that the will is actively involved. There is both the pain of separation and the joy of discovery. There is a degree of radicalism associated with every transgressive act even as it forges new connections. This volume takes up a host of issues ranging from migrations of peoples and histories crossing of linguistic generic and disciplinary borders to nostalgia pain loss of faith and its recovery. It goes on to discuss violence terrorism and networkings that fail to be contained by the nation state. Issues of gender heterogeneities alternative subjectivities emerging visibility of the third gender and institutional breakdowns are also explored. 270 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 74394
