Understanding Society through the Written Word

Consumable Texts in Contemporary India: Uncultured Books and Bibliographical Sociology by Suman Gupta; London: Palgrave Macmillan, 2015; pp x +204, ₹5,161.

Suman Gupta’s new book is part of the series New Directions in Book History, published by Palgrave Macmillan, United Kingdom. The fact that Consumable Texts in Contemporary India: Uncultured Books and Bibliographical Sociology (hereafter, CTCI) uses both the words “text” and “book” in the title is an indication of the approach to be expected in this text/book: it distinguishes text from book, and examines the implications of that distinction, for the products in question.
