The Sun Never Sets presents the work of a generation of scholars who are shifting the orientation of South Asian American studies. In its early years, the field centered on literary and cultural analyses and focused predominantly on the immigrant professionals who arrived in the United States after changes to immigration laws in the 1960s. Here, the contributors focus on the political economy and long history of South Asian migrations to the U.S.—and upon the lives, work, and activism of often unacknowledged migrant populations—in ways that not only challenge preconceptions about the South...

William Blake (1757 - 1827) is one of the great figures in literature, by turns poet, artist and visonary. Profoundly libertarian in outlook, Blake's engagement with the issues of his day is well known and this - along with his own idiosynratic concerns - flows through his poetry and art. Like Milton before him, the prodigality of his allusions and references is little short of astonishing. Consquently, his longer viosnary poems can challege the modern reader, who will find in this avowedly open edition all they might need to interpret the poetry. Printed Pages: 976 View more info

Jammu and Kashmir has been ravaged by conflict for sixty years. Caught in a tug-of-war between India and Pakistan, the state is today riven by conflicts of ethnicity, religion and national identity; by friction between national and local governments; and by rival claims to territory. At a moment when abiding peace seems elusive and the nuclearized neighbours are both threatened by terrorism, My Kashmir is a clear-sighted and timely examination of Kashmir’s recent history, the bloodshed and betrayals and the urgent quest for a lasting peace.Printed Pages: 248.
