Mythos und Moloch by Johanna Hahn
CrossAsia-eBooks has published Mythos und Moloch: Die Metropole in der modernen Hindi-Literatur (ca.1970-2010) by Johanna Hahn.  The study Mythos und Moloch examines Hindi urban literature in the period between 1970 and the present. Using popular myths such as the "deceptive city" (māyāvī śahar), characters such as the flaneur and places such as the tea stall, it shows how regional-language narratives form an interface between global and national discourses and local worlds of experience.
