6 Partha Chatterjee & Pradeep Jeganathan (Eds)
Subaltern Studies XI: Community, Gender and Violence
Orient BlackSwan/Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8178240335 / 9788178240336; Softcover; New; 
In its early phase, Subaltern Studies dealt extensively with community and violence in the context of peasant uprisings. Once the problem of peasant involvement in the modern politics of the nation had been posed, complexities in that relationship began to emerge. A new dimension was introduced when the relationship between community, gender and national politics came to be taken seriously. The present volume confronts the whole range of new issues raised by the relations between community, gender and the politics of violence.Printed Pages: 360. 101972

8 Partha Chatterjee
The Black Hole of Empire: History of a Global Practice of Power
Orient BlackSwan/Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8178243733 / 9788178243733; Softcover; New; 
The Black Hole of Empire follows the ever-changing representations of this historical event and founding myth of the British Empire in India, from the eighteenth century to the present. Partha Chatterjee explores how a supposed tragedy paved the ideological foundations for the “civilizing” force of British imperial rule and territorial control in India. Chatterjee takes a close look at the justifications of modern empire by liberal thinkers, international lawyers, and conservative traditionalists, and examines the intellectual and political responses of the colonized, including those of Bengali nationalists. The two sides of empire''s entwined history are brought together in the story of the Black Hole memorial: set up in Calcutta in 1760, demolished in 1821, restored by Lord Curzon in 1902, and removed in 1940 to a neglected churchyard. Challenging conventional truisms of imperial history, nationalist scholarship, and liberal visions of globalization, Chatterjee argues that empire is a necessary and continuing part of the history of the modern state.Printed Pages: 440. 101958

10 Ranajit Guha; Edited, with an Introduction By Partha Chatterjee
The Small Voice of History: Collected Essays
Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8178242915 / 9788178242910; First Paperback Edition; Paperback; New; 
Ranajit Guha is arguably the Indian historian whose writings have had a massive and formative impact on contemporary scholarship in several disciplines throughout the world: on postcolonial studies in literature, in anthropology, in history, in cultural studies, in art history. Guha first became known as the practitioner of a critical Marxism that ran parallel to the work of British and French Marxist historians of the 1960s and 1970s but which, instead of recreating a ‘history from below’, sought active political engagement with the present by deploying insights drawn from Gramsci and Mao. More recently, Guha’s writings have drawn attention to the phenomenological and the everyday, and been noticed for their sustained critique of the disciplinary practices of history-writing. Guha’s reputation rests most famously on his international role as founder and guiding spirit of Subaltern Studies, the series of essays and monographs that have, over the past three decades, critiqued colonialist and nationalist historiographies. While spawning new ways of thinking about history in Europe, Latin America, and the USA, these have created a ferment richer than anything else emerging out of modern South Asia, even as they have unsettled many existing frameworks of thought. Guha’s fascinatingly diverse historical and political writings, dating from the 1950s and tucked away in obscure journals and collections, have been virtually inaccessible: they are brought together for the first time in the present volume, which comprises his Collected Essays in English, forty-four in number. These writings have been put together by Partha Chatterjee, whose long association with Guha as a founder-member of the Subaltern Studies editorial board is complemented by his own international stature as a historian, political theorist, and public intellectual. Chatterjee’s Introduction sketches the professional life and intellectual trajectory of India’s most profoundly influential modern historian. Every serious student of South Asian history, politics, and anthropology will be enriched by the astonishing diversity of insights and learning within this book. Printed Pages: 676. 032738
