Indiana University Press is pleased to announce the recent publication of:

Indian Films in Soviet Cinemas
The Culture of Movie-going after Stalin
Sudha Rajagopalan

"Fresh and sophisticated, well-written and accessible, this highly original book not only makes an important contribution to the global history of Indian cinema, it also illuminates Soviet social and cultural history during the Khrushchev and Brezhnev eras." -Denise J. Youngblood, University of Vermont

In the first detailed social and cultural history of the consumption of Indian popular cinema in the USSR from the mid-1950s until the end of the Soviet era, Rajagopalan analyzes the ways in which Soviet movie-goers, policy makers, critics, and sociologists responded to, interpreted, and debated Indian cinema.
