Midnight Daughter; M S Riyaz Ulla (Bangalore: Kathalok Publications, 2003, pp 220, Rs 200) The novel is about a Muslim girl born on the midnight of 15th August 1947, a day of national rejoicing.

Others
The Ganga Trail: Foreign Accounts and Sketches of the River Scene; Jagmohan Mahajan (Varanasi: Indica Books, pp 159, Rs 750) This book captures the fascination felt by foreign visitors as they travelled along the river during the last two thousand years. These written accounts have been blended with the visual impressions of the artist-travellers assembled from private and public art collections and libraries in India, Britain and the USA.

Existence, Identity and Mobilisation: The Cotton Mill workers of Bombay, 1890-1919; Shashi Bhushan Upadhyay (New Delhi: Manohar, 2004, pp 216, Rs 495) This work is concerned with the early history of labour in the Bombay cotton textile industry. It takes into account various facets of workers’ lives - economic as well as social, cultural and political - and emphasises both the uniqueness and commonness of the workers’ experiences with relation to the rest of the population.
From Gender to Nation; Edited by Rada Ivekovic and Julie Mostov (New Delhi: Zubaan, pp 212, Rs 350)

The essays in this volume consider the significance of nation and gender in the context of post 1989 transitions in the former Soviet Union and Yugoslavia and in the context of post partition India. The texts critique the way in which narratives of nationhood and womanhood naturalise and essentialise difference and hierarchy.
