    The importance of Antonio Gramsci's work for postcolonial studies can hardly be exaggerated, and in this volume, contributors attempt to situate Gramsci's work in the vast and complex oeuvre of postcolonial studies. Specifically, this book endeavors to reassess the impact on postcolonial studies of the central role assigned by Gramsci to culture and literature in the formation of a truly revolutionary idea of the national--a notion that has profoundly shaped the thinking of both Frantz Fanon and Edward Said. Gramsci, as Iain Chambers has argued, has been instrumental in helping scholars rethink their understanding of historical, political, and cultural struggle by substituting the relationship between tradition and modernity with that of subaltern versus hegemonic parts of the world. Combining theoretical reflections and re-interpretations of Gramsci, the scholars in this collection present comparative geo-cultural perspectives on the meaning of the subaltern, passive revolution, hegemony, the concept of national-popular culture, in order to chart out a political map of the postcolonial through the central focus on Gramsci.

    This book provides an innovative cultural history of Italian colonialism and its impact on twentieth-century ideas of empire and anti-colonialism. In October 1935, Mussolinis army attacked Ethiopia, defying the League of Nations and other European imperial powers. The book explores the widespread political and literary responses to the invasion, highlighting how Pan-Africanism drew its sustenance from opposition to Italy's late empire-building, and reading the work of George Padmore, Claude McKay, and CLR James alongside the feminist and socialist anti-colonial campaigner Sylvia Pankhurst's broadsheet, New Times and Ethiopia News . Extending into the postwar period, the book examines the fertile connections between anti-colonialism and anti-fascism in Italian literature and art, tracing the emergence of a "resistance aesthetics" in works such as The Battle of Algiers and Giovanni Pirelli's harrowing books of testimony about Algeria's war of independence, both inspired by Frantz Fanon. This book will interest readers passionate about postcolonial studies, the history of Italian imperialism, Pan-Africanism, print cultures, and Italian postwar culture.

    This book is about the most vibrant yet under-studied aspects of Indian writing today. It examines multilingualism, current debates on postcolonial versus world literature, the impact of translation on an "Indian" literary canon, and Indian authors' engagement with the public sphere. The essays cover political activism and the North-East Tribal novel; the role of work in the contemporary Indian fictional imaginary; history as felt and reconceived by the acclaimed Hindi author Krishna Sobti; Bombay fictions; the Dalit autobiography in translation and its problematic international success; development, ecocriticism and activist literature; casteism and access to literacy in the South; and gender and diaspora as dominant themes in writing from and about the subcontinent. Troubling Eurocentric genre distinctions and the split between citizen and subject, the collection approaches Indian literature from the perspective of its constant interactions between private and public narratives, thereby proposing a method of reading Indian texts that goes beyond their habitual postcolonial identifications as "national allegories".

    Today s optical networks are carrying enormous traffic which is doubling almost every year. The traffic includes voice, data, video and various real time application services like remote monitoring and control, remote surgery etc.The All Optical Network utilizes the low delay in optical fibers by keeping the signal in the optical domain from source to destination. When WDM is used in the AON we obtain the wavelength routed optical network (WRON).WRONs transmit signals entirely in the optical domain, reducing delay, but imposing a new restriction, the wavelength continuity constraint Wavelength conversion has been shown as one of the key techniques that can improve the blocking performance so the success probability in a wavelength-routed all-optical network. Also the wavelength converters are very expensive so to make effective use of the limited number of wavelength converters different techniques are used.It has been observed that wavelength conversion can decrease the blocking probability by a large margin. The p-cycle concept is a recent strategy to recover from network failures.
