Publisher Information

Zubaan Books

Zubaan is an independent non-profit publishing house. It grew out of India's first Feminist publishing house, Kali for Women. Founded by Urvashi Butalia, who was co-founder of Kali for Women, Zubaan was set up to specifically continue Kali's work. Zubaan, has inherited half the backlist of Kali so that reprints of many backlist titles are assured. Zubaan Books The word 'Zubaan' comes from Hindustani and means, literally, tongue, but it has many other meanings, such as voice, language, speech and dialect. Zubaan Books While Zubaan is continuing to publish in areas similar to its predecessor, we are also expanding into other fields. We plan to: * Begin publishing in Hindi and work actively with publishers in other Indian languages to translate our books. * Organise many more workshops and work in collaboration with other organisations. * Publish more broad based, popular books, though the focus on women will remain central to it. This expansion is based on the understanding and realization that the women's movement, the realities of women's lives, in India and elsewhere, have changed and expanded considerably. Zubaan Books Some of the distinct lists that are being built in Zubaan are: * Gender and Reproductive Health/Sexuality * Gender and Conflict * Gender and Architecture * Gender and Law * Gender and History/National Movement * Gender and Economics * The North East of India (including essays and fiction) * Fiction in translation, mostly novels * Readers on the Women's Movement/Feminism * Biographies/Autobiographies/Memoirs Young Zubaan is a new list of books for teenagers and children in India. Our list celebrates diversity and difference, with books that will delight, inform and entertain. Young Zubaan believes that the first books that children read are the "key to the magic of the world". We are committed to maintaining the highest quality - in terms of illustrations, design and production values - because young readers deserve nothing less.
