India's Bandit Queen
Book Number: 48896
Harpercollins January 1, 2001 8vo softcover 260pp very good. In 1983, 26-year-old Phoolan Devi made a conditional surrender in front of thousands of people to the government of India on charges of murdering 22 high-caste Hindu men. Labeled as India's "Bandit Queen," she had been an outlaw for almost two years; the murders were revenge for the life of her lover and for her own kidnap and rape. This is the story of a woman, born in poverty and the low ranks of a caste system, who fought back against a system of oppressors. She managed to keep her life and is serving a jail sentence. Much of this book is compiled from her prison letters.

Pancatantra: The Book of India's Folk Wisdom
Olivelle, Patrick (Translator)
Book Number: 43174
Oxford University Press, USA January 8, 1998 8vo softcover 256pp very good. The Pancatantra is the most famous collection of fables in India and was one of the earliest Indian books to be translated into Western languages. No other work of Indian literature has had a greater influence on world literature, and no other collection of stories has become as popular in India itself. Patrick Olivelle presents the Pancatantra in all its complexity and rich ambivalence, examining central elements of political and moral philosophy alongside the many controversial issues surrounding its history. This new translation vividly reveals the story-telling powers of the original author, while detailed notes illuminate aspects of ancient Indian society and religion to the non-specialist reader.
