We are happy to present this twelfth volume of Subaltern Studies. We have made a special effort to present the work of younger scholars concerned with questions of subalternity. Muslims, Dalits, and history--as both fabric and 'fabrication'--especially in relation to these communities, are the other clear links within the present volume.
It has not been possible to include essays by more members of the editorial collective; we look forward to doing so in future volumes.
