Feminist Fiction and the Indian Partition of 1947: New Perspectives

Author: 

Gupta, Priyanka

Credentials: 

Priyanka Gupta is Assistant Professor in the Masters of Business Administration Program at the Model Institute of Engineering and Technology, in Jammu, India.

The Partition of the Indian Subcontinent in 1947 unleashed unprecedented violence. In Feminist Fiction and the Indian Partition of 1947, Indian scholar Priyanka Gupta explores how women were doubly suppressed and victimized before and after the partition. The violence, and the displacement of large populations, made this historical episode of separation more and more significant for women. Novels set during the Partition offer unique viewpoints and perspectives that have not previously been explored.

Author: 

Laxmiprasad, P. V. Ph.D., Department of English, Satavahana University (India)

Folktales of Mizoram is a translated collection of sixty-six short stories from northeast India taken up for a critical evaluation. The stories depict a typical Mizo culture in spirit and practice.

Tagore as Philosophical Voyager: A Critical Study of "Gitanjali"

Author: 

Laxmiprasad, P. V., Ph.D., Department of English, Satavahana University (India)

A multi-faceted creative personality, Rabindranath Tagore is one of the greatest stalwarts of both English and Bengali literatures. He created a Renaissance in India, where people were awakened by the great corpus of creative work produced during the country’s struggle for independence from the British. Tagore was undoubtedly a champion of this literary protest. He produced masterpieces in Bengali literature and later translated them into English.

Begum Khaleda Zia: Portrait of a People’s Leader

Author: 

Khan, Q. M. Jalal, Professor of English (ret.) and Political Writer; K. M. A. Malik, Professor of Chemistry (ret.) and Political Writer

This book is about Bangladesh’s first female prime minister, Begum Khaleda Zia, who served three terms in office and achieved enormous popularity. Her charisma inexorably emanates from her sense of dignity, integrity, uncompromising principles, and commitment to freedom, independence, and sovereignty of Bangladesh--a new and small country bordering the larger India, which is always up to its hegemonic designs. Begum Zia (and her husband, President Ziaur Rahman) were able to keep foreign conspiracies at bay.

A History of Chinese Classical Scholarship, Volume III: Northern and Southern Dynasties, Sui, and Early Tang: The Decline of Factual Philology and the Rise of Speculative Hermeneutics

Author: 

Honey, David B., Humanities Professor of Chinese, Brigham Young University

This exciting third volume of David B. Honey’s comprehensive history of Chinese thought begins with China after nomadic invaders overran the northern regions of the historic kingdom. The differentiation between scholarly emphases—northern focus on the traditional pedagogical commentary, and southern classical school’s more innovative commentary—led to an emphasis on the interpretation of the overall message of a text, not a close reading of smaller sections. As Honey explains, serious attention to the phonological nature of Chinese characters also began during in this long era.

A History of Chinese Classical Scholarship, Volume II: Qin, Han, Wei, Jin: Canon and Commentary

Author: 

Honey, David B., Humanities Professor of Chinese, Brigham Young University

Volume II of David B. Honey’s comprehensive history of Chinese thought covers a vital 500-year stretch in China’s history, from national unification in 221 BCE to the first post-imperial fragmentation into rival northern and southern polities. This volume discusses the reconstitution of the classics after the textual devastation wrought by the policies of the First Emperor of Qin, who destroyed many of them, and their eventual canonization by the crown during the Western Han period.
