2 Prafulla Roy (Author) & John W. Hood (Tr.)
Freedom's Ransom
IndiaInk/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8186939407 / 9788186939406; Softcover; New; 
In rural India, two worlds co-exist in extreme contrast to one another. There is the world of the big landowners, extraordinarily wealthy and hungry for power, and there is the world of the underclass - mostly untouchable landless labourers, toiling for a mere pittance and living in virtual thraldom. Prafulla Roy's contemporary masterpiece, translated here as Freedom's Ransom, encompasses these two worlds as he develops the intertwining story of a rich landholder's quest for political power and the touching tale of a young dalit couple and their dream of freedom from years of bonded labour. With remarkable candour and sensitivity, Prafulla Roy depicts the world of the rural underclass in what is a richly detailed social document, a critique of contemporary India and - as in all his works - a powerful story.

3 Niharranjan Ray (Author), John W. Hood (Tr.) & Sumit Sarkar (Frwd)
History of the Bengali People: From Earliest Times to the Fall of the Sena Dynasty (Second Edition)
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8125050531 / 9788125050537; Second Edition; Softcover; New; 
Niharranjan Ray’s highly acclaimed magnum opus, Bangalir Itihas: Adi Parva, translated here as History of the Bengali People is a seminal work on the history of the Bengalis from the earliest times to the beginning of the Muslim rule in India. As much a work of literature as of history, this book is not a story of kings and the extension of their power but of the life of ordinary people. Thus, through detailed, methodical discussions on origins of the various peoples, their language and literature, science, trade and commerce, religious practices and rituals, there emerges a vivid picture of society and its development through the passage of time. This able translation by J. W. Hood has retained the vibrancy and subtle nuances of the Bengali original. In his Foreword to this edition of the translation, Sumit Sarkar writes: ‘Niharranjan Ray was, indeed, a towering figure among my generation of historians. But not many scholars are familiar with his writings these days. The new edition of the English translation, which has done full justice to the original version, hopefully will rectify this.’Printed Pages: 660. 101896
