From Russia with Love: A Critical Reader

Edited by Amit Sarwal

During the last few years college / university curriculum in India has opened up to adjust new literatures of which Spy thriller is an integral part. Since this shift to include such emerging areas of study is very recent in the Indian context, we still lack the essential Readers or critical books designed particularly to cater to the needs of Indian teachers and students.

Deadline for Abstract submission: 25 July. Proceedings will be published, after peer-reviewing process.
With the development of the contemporary communicating tools, contemporary society seems to be marked by a rapid flow of events and ideas that appear and disappear from the memory of a relatively young individual as fast as they appear. This atmosphere of rapid exchange of hot news and new trends in fashion, ways of life, etc. tends to affect even the most traditional societies. Accordingly, identities tend to be shaped in relation to contemporary "idols" that seem always innovative. However, at the same time iconic figures of the past still dominate contemporary mentalities, but sometimes only as symbols for the perpetual quest for novelty.
