Matter of Time
Shashi Deshpande (Author), Ritu Menon (Afterword)
The New York Times Book Review called Shashi Deshpande's U.S. debut, "austere, philosophical, and rich; a work that . . . grows in moral force and pathos." Deshpande's critical acclaim in India—including three top literary prizes—prefigured the wide recognition abroad of this pivotal novel
 
The Narayanpur Incident
Shashi Deshpande (Author)
8 August 1942. 'Quit India!' Gandhiji warns the British. As he and most leaders are put in jail the very next day, the people rise in protest and so begins the Quit India movement of 1942. Babu and Manju suddenly find themselves part of all this as their schools close down and their father is put behind bars.

No Entry for the New Sun: Translations from Modern Marathi Dalit Poetry
Arjun Dangle (Editor)
A powerful testament to social poetry, and to the powerful voices emerging in Indian language poetry. Poetry has a much larger readership among the Indian languages than among Indian English readers. Thus, there is more incentive to write poetry in these languages. Particularly for the disenfranchised, the illiterate and those at the margins of society, like the mother who works lifting cement and sand for construction work, this poetry can at least be read out and understood. It is this immediacy that gives these poems much of their power.

Sanjay Deshpande (Author), Lalit Kumar Sharma (Illustrator)
The Indus Valley Civilisation grew around a network of five great cities where peace and prosperity reigned. Prince Meluha, the young crown prince of Dholavira, enjoyed a life of pleasure until Sargon, the ambitious ruler of the Mesopotamian city of Akkad, turned his eye towards the east and sent his army to take these lands.

Anthology Film and World Cinema
Shekhar Deshpande (Author)
Fills a significant gap in the field by including anthology films firmly within the current developments in film theory and analyzing their specific achievements.
 
Dark Sun & the Women Who Wore a Hat
Kamal Desai (Author)
This translation provides access to the major works of a leading Marathi writer. Kamal Desai's fiction is focused on the micro levels of inner life where experience is held together by the compelling and never predictable struggle for selfhood. Nearly always, subtle and ongoing antagonisms structure and threaten Kamal Desai's imagined communities. Before she can tear down the walls of the temple of the Dark Sun (Kala Surya) the protagonist must extricate herself from its tenacious and pervasive hold on her inner life. In the much acclaimed "Woman Wearing a Hat" (Hat Ghalnari Bai), a woman asserts her right to a Promethean venture in the face of crippling opposition.
