Bahl's article "The House of Tata" was published in the book "History of World Trade Since 1450," edited by John J. McClusker and published by Macmillan Reference USA, a division of Thompson Gale. The work contains 420 articles by contributors from around the world and presents economic concepts within a historical context.

Another article by Bahl, dealing with a critique of recent Indian historiography, was translated into German and published in "Sozial.Geschichte," a German journal of social history. The article was titled "Subaltern Studies Was ist schief gelaufen?" Indian historiography has a large following among scholars in the United States and Latin America.
