The Other India: Narratives of Terror, Communalism and Violence

Editor: Om Prakash Dwivedi

“This is a rich and various collection of essays. Om Prakash Dwivedi has here brought together a number of significant voices, all of whom address the endlessly evolving – beauteous, ornate, tragic – tapestry which is contemporary ‘India’, a real India but one which is never separable from Indias of imagination and the mind.”

- Professor David Punter, University of Bristol

Fandom At The Crossroads: Celebration, Shame and Fan/Producer Relationships

Authors: Lynn Zubernis and Katherine Larsen

“The fans’ are an incredibly important force in the entertainment industry: Powerful executives, directors and writers fear them, countless web sites cater to them and their support (or wrath) can make or break a project. But who are the fans? What do they want? How do they view their complex relationships with the stories and storytellers they obsess over? Fortunately, Lynn Zubernis and Katherine Larsen are here to take us on a fascinating journey into the belly of the beast. But you don’t have to be a fan of the Winchester Brothers to enjoy this witty, thoughtful and intelligent guide to the nature of fandom and the endless varieties of the fan experience.”

- Maureen Ryan, Television Critic, AOL/Huffington Post

The European Avant-Garde: Text and Image

Editors: Selena Daly and Monica Insinga

“This selection of essays brings together clearly focused critical studies, displaying insight, creative comparison and original associations and conclusions. The result is a highly recommendable interdisciplinary vision of the early twentieth century ranging from Futurism to Cubism, from Surrealism to Translation, with an entire section dedicated to the Body from both a verbal and visual dimension.”

- Deirdre O’Grady, Emeritus Professor of Italian Studies and Comparative Literature, University College Dublin; Cavaliere dell’Ordine della Stella della Solidarietà Italiana.
