Urdu Sources on Modern India : 1885—1947

S. Sartaj Alam Abidi (Editor)
Synopsis In pre-partition days Urdu has been the vehicle of learned expressions in social sciences and humanities but in the post-partition era it was not in much use by the scholars, partly because the young generation of scholars was not so familiar with Urdu. The present work is a meticulous effort to unfold the vast useful material on modern India for research scholars. Had this effort not been made a large segment of valuable material would have remained untapped by them. Primary sources like articles in Urdu newspapers and journals have been scanned. A list of these sources has been given in this book. The entries give names of authors and titles in transliterated form but annotations are given in English in each entry. The location of books and journals has been indicated in the entries. The entries are serially numbered chapter-wise. The book contains author, title and subject indices. It is hoped that this work, will serve as a companion to scholars interested in social sciences and modern India.
