The 1970s was a pivotal decade in the Indian social, cultural, political and economic landscape: the global oil crisis, wars with China and Pakistan in the previous decade, the Bangladesh war of 1971, labour and food shortages, widespread political corruption, and the declaration of the state of Emergency. Amidst this backdrop Indian cinema in both its popular and art/parallel film forms flourished. This exciting new collection brings together original research from across the arts and humanities disciplines that examine the legacies of the 1970s in India’s cinemas, offering an invaluable insight into this important period. The authors argue that the historical processes underway in the 1970s are important even today, and can be deciphered in the aural and visual medium of Indian cinema. The book explores two central themes: first, the popular cinema’s role in helping to construct the decade’s public culture; and second, the powerful and under-studied archive of the decade as present in India’s popular cinemas. This book is based on a special issue of South Asian Popular Culture.

This is the story of a young idealistic student of IIT Kanpur who in 1974 at the age of 24 went to USA to pursue higher education. He left a very lucrative career in US to come back and work in rural India in 1981. This is also the story of that idealist who came back against all advice and in the process discovered himself. Dr. Anil K. Rajvanshi has written in an engaging and lively style the memoirs of his stay and experiences in America in 1970s. It is an inspiring story and should appeal to all Indians, specially NRIs and students aspiring to go abroad and who want to make a difference in India, especially the rural India. An advance copy of the book was put on the web and it elicited tremendous positive response worldwide.

Palmer reviews the course of the relationship between the United States and India, especially since the early 1970s, with particular attention to who influenced whom, in what ways, how, why, and with what results. This book is part of a Praeger series, "Studies of Influence in International Relations." The author considers the troubles of 1971 and the "tilt toward Pakistan," the impact of U.S. global and regional priorities upon bilateral relations, economic trade and aid, security concerns and conflicts, nuclear power developments,and person-to-person Indo-American encounters. The study focuses on the 1970s and 1980s, years of more differences and disagreements than of cooperation, thereby giving a somewhat distorted picture of the overall relationship.

Despite the often stereotypical notions of Bollywood, it's not all weddings, wet saris and running around trees. In the 1970s, Indian cinema gave birth to a new breed of action movie, one that combined its own exuberant traditions with foreign influences. Let world cult cinema fanatic Todd Stadtman be your guide through this world of karate killers, femme fatales, space age lairs, bombshells and booby traps with Funky Bollywood, a book with an attitude as freewheeling and feisty as its subject matter, bursting with colour and imagination on every vibrant page.
