Description : This book interrogates representations – fiction, literary motifs and narratives – of the Partition of India. Delving into the writings of Khushwant Singh, Balachandra Rajan, Attia Hosain, Abdullah Hussein, Rahi Masoom Raza and Anita Desai, among many others, it highlights the modes of ‘fictive’ testimony that sought to articulate the inarticulate – the experiences of trauma and violence, of loss and longing, and of diaspora and displacement. The author discusses representational techniques and formal innovations in writing across three generations of twentieth-century writers in India and Pakistan, invoking theoretical debates on history, memory, witnessing and trauma. With a new afterword, the second edition of this volume draws attention to recent developments in Partition studies and sheds new light as regards ongoing debates about an event that still casts a shadow on contemporary South Asian society and culture. A key text, this is essential reading for scholars, researchers and students of literary criticism, South Asian studies, cultural studies and modern history.

Description : Mirza Asadullah Khan Ghalib was born in Agra in the closing years of the eighteenth century. A precocious child, he began composing verses at an early age and gained recognition while he was still very young. He wrote in both Urdu and Persian and was also a great prose stylist. He was a careful, even strict, editor of his work who took to publishing long before his peers. His predilection for writing difficult, obscure poetry peppered with complex metaphors produced a unique commentarial tradition that did not extend beyond his work. Commentaries on his current Urdu divan have produced a field of critical writing that eventually lead to the crafting of a critical lens with which to view the classical ghazal. The nineteenth century was the height of European colonialism. British colonialism in India produced definitive changes in the ways literature was produced, circulated and consumed. Ghalib responded to the cultural challenge with a far-sightedness that was commendable. His imagination sought engagement with a wider community of readers. His deliberate switch to composing in Persian shows that he wanted his works to reach beyond political boundaries and linguistic barriers. Ghalib's poetic trajectory begins from Urdu, then moves to composing almost entirely in Persian and finally swings back to Urdu. It is nearly as complex as his poetry. However, his poetic output in Persian is far more than what he wrote in Urdu. More important is that he gave precedence to Persian over Urdu. Ghalib's voice presents us with a double bind, a linguistic paradox. Exploring his life, works and philosophy, this authoritative critical biography of Ghalib opens a window to many shades of India and the subcontinent's cultural and literary tradition.

Description : Thuggee, the controversial cult of ritual highway murderers "discovered" by the British in early nineteenth-century India, is one of the most sensational and contentious practices in South Asian history. This anthology brings together primary sources from the period of British involvement with thuggee many of which have long languished in the archives. It provides an insight into the production of colonial knowledge and explores how far the authentic voices of the accused thugs could be discerned in the detailed interviews and interrogations conducted by the British. The volume also includes a wide range of popular accounts and academic assessments from 1824 to 2006 shedding light on the shifting interpretations of this custom over the past two centuries.

Description : '[Ghalib] was regarded as one of the greatest Urdu (and Persian) poets ...I can think of no translator better able than Ralph Russell to turn such a writer into English. The [book] shows Ghalib as a remarkable personality, with more of a sense of humour than most poets have been gifted with.' -- V G Kiernan, Emeritus Professor of Modern History, University of Edinburgh 'Ralph Russell...published several books on Urdu literature... The most widely circulating Urdu journal in the world, Fung, gave him the title Baba-e-Urdu--the Grand Old Man of Urdu.' -- Khushwant Singh Mirza Asadullah Khan Ghalib (1797-1869), nobel, poet, and wit of nineteenth-century Delhi, is the most famous and popular of the Urdu poets that the Indian subcontinent has produced. His life spans the years of the twilight of the Mughals, the Revolt of 1857 and the terrible aftermath. This complete Ghalib anthology comprises poetry and prose translated from both Persian and Urdu, biographica l details and provides a context within which modern-day, English-speaking readers can read and understand his poetry. Introduced and selected by Ralph Russell, an eminent Urdu scholar, this collection presents a representative selection of Ghalib's writings set against a portrait of the man and the times in which he lived. Ralph Russell's 'Ghalib: A Self-Portrait' gives a picture of his personality as it emerges in passages from his Persian and Urdu letters and prose, including his diary, and other materials, which are arranged to tell the story of his life. Percival Spear describes the Delhi of Ghalib's day. New translations from Ghalib's Urdu and Persian ghazals form a significant part of the volume and are being published for the first time. A note on translating Ghalib, a survey of his Urdu and Persian poetry, and a detailed explanatory index provided to guide readers complete the volume. The first-ever compendium of Ghalib's oeuvre, The Oxford India Ghalib, is a collect or's item for aficionados of Urdu literature and especially of its poetry.
