English Literary Criticism and Theory: An Introductory History
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2006; 8125030085 / 9788125030089; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
The book is a history of Western literary criticism and a general introduction to the subject of literary criticism and theory. It follows the survey approach, discussing English literary critics in a historical-chronological order. It is primarily designed to serve as a text/reference book for undergraduate and postgraduate students in Indian universities and colleges. The book deals with the critical texts that are prescribed for study in many M.A (English) courses in India. One section of the book surveys the contribution made by the ancient critics since knowledge of classical criticism is essential for an understanding of later developments. Another section (sixteenth to twentieth century) takes for close examination, individually, such of those critics as are prescribed in the curricula of M.A. courses in Indian universities and colleges. The last section on Contemporary Criticism, examines all the movements, with special emphasis on theorists who have initiated these movements. The section, ‘A Glossary of Critical Terms,’ gives short explanatory notes on critical terms with which a student is expected to be familiar. The Select Bibliography lists important works on criticism which can be consulted for further reading and research. Printed Pages: 320. 031469

The Enigma of the Kerala Woman: A Failed Promise of Literacy
Social Science Press and Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2007; 8187358262 / 9788187358268; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
CHARACTERIZED, by high levels of female literacy and life expectancy for women, the state of Kerala has been hiled as the epitome of gender development in India. Yet disquieting evidence on widespread sex selective abortions, soaring dowry demands and high rates of crime and domestic violence against women makes it imperative that a fresh look be taken at the problem of gender relations in Kerala. The Enigma of the Kerala Woman: A Failed Promise of Literacy consists of multi-disciplinary research carried out on various aspects of gender relations in Kerala by scholars from a range of social and economic setings. The introductory chapter provides an overarching framework for the individual studies. Breaking new ground in analytical and methodological dimensions of Women's Studies, the paoers collectively seek to provide an answer to the enigma of the Keral woman. The book has a rich bodyu of data which provides comparative figures relating to development indices for Kerala in relation to some other states as well as India as a whole. The book comes alive through two separate sections. The first one is devolted to case studies of women from the area of research and the second to photographs of Kerala women in various social settings with detailed anthropological captions. The two sections complement each other in supporting the main theme of the book. 'I am very interested to learn about your book on Kerala women which you have just published. I look forward to getting hold of a copy and reading it. ...I know Swapna’s work and expect it to be very interesting and good. ...I will, ... personally benefit greatly when I ...read Swapna’s book.' --Amartya Sen.
