This Volume Brings Together Fourteen Essays Written By Literary Critics, Historians And Political Theorists Which Look At The Early Novels In Different Indian Languages And The Circumstances Of Their Production. Most Of The Essays Challenge The Old Assumption That The Novel In India Was A Genre Directly Imported From The West, And Address The Issues Of Plural Heritage And The Economic And Social Determinants That Interacted To Make The Shaping Of This Literary Form A Tangled And Complex Process In Our Languages.
