              Ghalib: Selected Poems and Letters

              Ghalib: Selected Poems and Letters (Hardback)

              Ghalib: Selections from His Urdu Poetry and Prose is an accessible and wide-ranging introduction to the preeminent Indian Urdu-language poet, Mirza Asadullah Khan Ghalib (1797-1869). Ghalib remains one of the most popular and influential Urdu-language poets. He also wrote in Pers...ian. Beginning with a critical introduction, which introduces Ghalib and his work to non-specialists, Frances Pritchett and Owen Cornwall then present a selection of Ghazals--the classic Urdu poetic form for which Ghalib was most famous--his poetry in other forms; little-known letters; and an introduction to an Urdu romance. The careful translations--more true to the originals than prior translations--will allow readers with little or no knowledge of Persian or Urdu to appreciate the lyricism of the original languages. Moreover, the annotations flesh out the nuances of meaning and other finer details of the poetry. The book also includes a glossary and a selection of Ghalib's comments on his own verses. The Urdu text of the poetry is included. --

Haynes and Solovitch capture the tides of change that pushed blacks forward thr...ough the twentieth century and the forces that ravaged black communities.

              The Great East Asian War and the Birth of the Korean Nation

              The Great East Asian War and the Birth of the Korean Nation (Hardback)

              JaHyun Kim Haboush argues that beginning with the outbreak of the Imjin War, when Japan invaded Korea in 1592, a discourse of nation emerged in Chosaon Korea (1392-1910) which continued, in a variety of forms, until the modern era. This is the first book to examine the formation ...of the Korean nation before the modern era. The Imjin War and the rise of the Manchu were events of monumental importance in East Asian history. The Great East Asian War escalated into a six-year regional war in which the three East Asian countries, Japan, Korea and China, fought either as allies or enemies, with a commitment of large forces, fighting on sea and land. This conflict was by far the largest war known to the world in the sixteenth century. In East Asian memory, it remained unequalled in scale until the Second World War. In Korea the Chosaon dynasty began in 1392 and persisted until 1910, and within this dynasty an idea of nation emerged and circulated. This discourse of nation shifted and intensified after the Manchu invasion in 1636. Haboush shows how this process was a visible, traceable, and documented phenomenon. The idea of a sixteenth century Korean nation is also unfamiliar in Korea. Nationalism for the most part is presented as a preexisting condition in the Imjin War, though 'strengthened' and 'heightened' by the experience. Scholars of the modernist camp subscribe to the historicism of Western historiography. They present the nationhood of Korea as a narrative of transformation, locating its arrival in the modern period, sometime in late 19th or early 20th century, under the auspices of new ideologies and visions from the West --Privided by publisher.
