901 Agehananda Bharati
Hindu Views and Ways of Hindu-Muslim Interface: An Anthropological Assessment
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1981; 8121501822; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
This book is the closest to a modern, critical, interdisciplinary answer to the oft-asked question "What is Hinduism?" The author does not claim to answer this question which he does not think can be answered unequivocally. Yet in this terse, succinct presentation something close to such answer has been attempted. The author analyzes both Hindu thought and Hindu behaviour as he approaches Hinduism both textually and contextually, as an indologist and a cultural anthropologist. He presents the average rural and urban Hindu views of the tradition rather than that of an intellectual or sacerdotal elite, and he introduces work-a-day people's way of acting as Hindus rather than the rituals or the meditations of highly tutored specialists, of the woman and the man in the field or in the office rather than of the purohita or shastri in the Vishvanath or Meenakshi temples. Bharati also clarifies a number of confusions which have become part of modernized Hindus' notions about ritual, caste, 'superstition' and other themes which the Hindu Renaissance of the last ten decades has generated. In order to illuminate the links between popular and learned Hinduism which includes a powerful esoteric segment, the author explains the perennially mystifying problem of bhakti vs. jnana, pivotally exemplified by Adisamkaracarya to whose order the author also belongs. When the late Pt. Nehru insisted that India's was a composite rather than a Hindu culture, he put his finger on an important fact: that one cannot sensible and sensitively talk about Hindu action without heeding the interface between Hinduism and Islam which has indeed become part of modern Hinduism, as it is indeed for South Asian Islam.

905 Aglaja Stirn and Peter Van Ham
The Hidden World of Naga: Living Traditions in Northeast India and Burma
Prestel; Munich, Germany; 2003; 3791328786; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 24 Cms x 31 Cms 
For centuries the Naga, composed of more than 30 individual tribes, have lived in relative isolation in the mountainous area of Northeast India and upper Burma. This magnificent book explores the art and culture of the Naga peoples living in a remote region known as the "Last Great Mystery of Asia." Looking beyond the Nagas' past as fierce headhunters, it focuses on their unique way of life that rarely separates the spiritual from the social. Images of important festivals and ceremonies reveal a proud people whose animist beliefs and shamanic practices are displayed in gorgeous artwork, jewelry, costumes, traditional architecture and musical instruments.

906 Agni Sreedhar
My Days in the Underworld: Rise of the Bangalore Mafia
Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789383260348; Softcover; New; 
Agni Sreedhar is an underworld don turned writer turned journalist turned filmmaker. He studied law in Bangalore and was intent on entering the Indian Civil Service when circumstances forced him to turn to crime. Starting from the early 1980s, Sreedhar found himself entrenched in the bitter gang wars that shaped the contours of modern Bangalore. This book is an intimate, first person account of the two decades he spent in the world of crime. But My Days in the Underworld isn’t just a tale of murder and blood. It is a study of a system that runs parallel to the world ordinary people inhabit, a lateral universe, one with its own police force and laws, one where the criminal justice system has all but failed. This is a story of a city as seen through the personal histories of politicians who ruled Karnataka, men like Gundu Rao, Ramakrishna Hegde, Bangarappa and Deve Gowda, as well as those who were responsible for shaping Bangalores underworld – Dawood Ibrahim, Chhota Rajan, Sharad Shetty, Kotwal Ramchandra, Jayaraj and Muthappa Rai. 109614

909 Agustin Paniker; Translated from the Revised Spanish Edition By David Sutcliffe
Jainism: History, Society, Philosophy and Practice
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8120834607; First English Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Jainism is a tradition which dates back thousands of years, which is unbelievably rich and profound, and which has certain unmistakable signs of identity. Contrary to what some might think, it is not in any sense a poor relation of Buddhism, nor is a strange, atheistic and ascetic sect within Hinduism. Jainism is, above all, the religion of non-violence (ahimsa), an ideal which all other religions of India were subsequently to make theirs and which was made universal by Gandhi in the 20th century. Like Buddhism, Jainism is a religion without God which paradoxically opens to the truly sacred in the deepest reaches of all living beings in the cosmos. And it is also the religion of non-absolutism (anekantavada), a particular form of philosophical pluralism, which seems astonishingly modern.

913 Ahmad Hasan Dani
Indian Palaeography
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8121500281; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The study of Indian palaeography grew out of the necessity for deciphering the large number of inscriptions found in the sub-continent. A further development came through the need to use the changing forms of letters as an aid to determining the dates of some inscriptions. For this latter purpose we now have a large number of charts at our disposal. Yet an absolute chronology has not been possible. The present work is intended to explain the difficulty, to redefine palaeography in the context of out technological advances and to seek, through its study, a better understanding of the civilization of south Asia. The book covers a wide field and deals with written materials from the earliest period to the eighth century AD found all over this far-flung area, and it explains, with the help of figures and charts, the interrelation of the cultures to the various zones. This second edition carries a new preface with a section of Indian Numerals. Printed Pages: 326 with 23 plates. 039265

921 Ahmed S. Hashim
Insurgency and Counter-Insurgency in Iraq
Hurst & Company; London, UK; 1850657955; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
In this sobering account of the ongoing violence in Iraq, Ahmed Hashim, a specialist on Middle Eastern startegic issues and irregular warfare, reveals the insurgents behind the widespread revolt, their motives, and their tactics. The insurgency, he shows, is not a united movement directed by a leadership with a single ideological vision. Instead, it involves former regime loyalists, Iraqis resentful of foreign occupation, foreign and domestic Islamist extremists, and elements of organized crime. These groups have cooperated with one another in the past and coordinated their attacks; but the alliance between nationalist Iraqi insurgents on the one hand and religious extremists has frayed considerably. The U.S. -led offensive to retake Fallujah in November 2004 and the success of the elections for the Iraqi National Assembly in January 2005 have led more 'mainstream' insurgent groups to begin thnking of reinforcing the political arm of their opposition movement and to seek political guarantees for the Sunni Arab community in the new Iraq. Hashim begins by placing the Iraqi revolt in its historical context. He next profiles the various insurgent groups, detailing their origins, aims, and operational and tactical modi operandi. He concludes with an unusually candid assessment of the successes and failures of the Coalition's counter-insurgency campaign. In place of sensational headlines, official triumphalism, and hand-wringing, Insurgency and Counter-Insurgency in Iraq offers a clear-eyed analysis of the increasingly complex violence that threatens the very future of Iraq.

The Secret: A Contemplation on the Nature of Identity, Reality and Mystery
Yogi Impressions; Mumbai, India; 8190105949; First Edition; Pocketbook; New; New; 5.25 x 4.25 Inches 
"Some secrets ache to be shared... losing nothing in their telling and offering everything in their hearing." ’The Secret’ is a contemplation on the nature of Identity, Reality and Mystery. Following in the tradition of Rumi, Hafiz, Kabir, Shikibu and Mirabai, these verses contain an appeal which is timeless and universal, speaking on many levels simultaneously, whilst mirroring the urge to bypass tradition and ritual with the ultimate objective of direct experience. Aine Keenan travelled to Mumbai in India to be in the presence of the famous Advaita sage Ramesh Balsekar, and absorb his teachings. Balsekar’s philosophy is the acceptance of the absoluteness of the Divine will based on the non-duality of Advaita Vedanta. This is an inspiring collection of poems written over the period of time Aine attended the morning 'satsang' at Balsekar’s residence. Printed Pages: 128. 003053

931 Aitzaz Ahsan
The Indus Saga - From Pataliputra to Partition
Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 2005; 8174364218; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
The Indus region, comprising the northwestern part of the Indian subcontinent (now Pakistan), has always had its distinct identity—racially, ethnically, linguistically and culturally. In the last five thousand years this region has been a part of India politically for only five hundred years. Pakistan, then, is no ‘artificial’ state conjured up by the disaffected Muslim elite of British India. Aitzaz Ahsan surveys the history of Indus—as he refers to this region—right from the time of the Harappan civilization to the era of the British Raj, concluding with Independence and the creation of Pakistan. Ahsan’s message is aimed both at Indians still nostalgic about ‘undivided’ India and at his Pakistani compatriots who narrowly tend to define their identity by their ‘un-Indianness’. EXCERPT: ‘Two generations of Pakistanis have been told that their very identity was their “un-Indianness”: banish this thought from the mind and Pakistan will collapse. Moreover, the Pakistani is Muslim and the Indian is Hindu. Period. That alone was the rationale of the partition of the subcontinent. But even if valid, being “un-Indian” is a manifestly incomplete answer to any question about identity. It only purports to state what the Pakistani is not. It does not address the issue as to what indeed he is … The Pakistani does not necessarily have to be an Indian, but he has to be somebody. Who is that somebody? Moreover the smug answer ascribing a singular role in the Partition to the differences between Hindus and Muslims fails to deal with the fact that the number of Muslims in India is greater than the population of Pakistan ... That is why some questions remain: is the centripetal pull of India an inexorable force that could again pull the Indus region (Pakistan) to itself? Or does the Indus region have a primordial existence outside India? Does it not have an identity of its own? Printed Pages: 467. 011953

932 Aitzaz Ahsan and Meghnad Desai
Divided By Democracy
Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 2005; 8174364250; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 8.5 x 5.5 Inches 
The second book in the Cross-border Talks series examines why India is a democracy while Pakistan is not. Meghnad Desai identifies the revolutionary decision of the Constituent Assembly to adopt universal adult franchise as the key to the survival of democracy in India. The overwhelming desire of the leaders of the independence movement, many of whom were educated in England, was for a Westminster-style democracy. The adoption of this model led to demands for inclusion from lower and backward castes and Dalits, and today Indian democracy is a heady and vigorous mix of ethnic and immigrant groups, class cleavages as well as rural/urban and North/South divisions. Aitzaz Ahsan argues that at Partition, while India had a strong middle class and political structure and a subordinated civil and military bureaucracy, in Pakistan it was the opposite. It inherited a strong feudal class, an insignificant bourgeoisie and an entrenched civil and military bureaucracy. These vested interests have never relinquished their control over the country, and have in the process choked the spirit of democracy there. Printed Pages: 144. 012380

In this personalized biography, Firaq’s nephew, Ajai Mansingh, tells the compelling tale of the poet's life, inspiration, and struggles – shedding light on the trials and tribulations of one of India’s greatest literary figures. ‘Firaq is a poet of the labyrinths of emotions, the sensuousness and transcendence of beauty, and the merging shades of pain and ecstasy.

Geetawali and Barvai Ramayan Ram
Bharatiya Vidya Prakashan; Delhi, India; 2006; 8183900089; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This 3-in-l omnibus volume presents Goswami Tulsidas' 2 major texts- Geetawali (V.S. 1625-1628) and Barvai Ramayan (V.S. 1670) besides a Sanskrit composition called Ram Raksha Stotra.Geetawali is a classic composition narrating the divine story of Lord Ram in the poetic style called Geet set to the tunes and lyrics of various Raagas. It displays Tulsidas' versatile acumen and matchless prowess as a poet, a musician, a devotee par-excellence and a maveric player with words. It is a veritable emotional Hindola (swing) which takes us in an oscillating ride of euphoria, exhilaration, ecstasy and merriment on one hand and despair, gloom, remorse, contrition, agonies, sorrows, torments and tribulations on the other.Barvai Ramayan on the other hand is short, clipped and crisp composition in the poetic style called Barvai consisting of 2-line couplets. Here details are omitted and the divine story is told by citing the main events only. The emphasis here is on the importance of Sri Ram's holy name.Printed Pages: 455. 103822

Traditional and Non-Traditional Security Threats to Central Asian Security
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2011; 9789380502830; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Traditional conception of security emphasises territorial integrity and national sovereignty as primary values to be protected. In this notion, traditional threats are essentially related to external military threats that seek to undermine the security of the sovereign state and its territorial integrity. As the present book shows, the threats to Central Asian security are both external and internal. Today challenges from non-traditional threats are greater than traditional ones. Ethnic, religious and linguistic issues can create instability. Similarly, poverty, hunger, unemployment and unequal distribution of wealth as well as environmental issues are going to pose the biggest challenge to the regional states in the near future. The drying up of the Aral Sea is affecting the health and lives of hundreds of thousands of people cutting across republics. Water-related confrontations are not unlikely given the problems related to water-sharing in the region. This book focuses mainly on many of the non-traditional security threats to Central Asian states which can even affect relations between states and transform into traditional security challenges.Printed Pages: 390. 104366

Globalisation and Eurasia
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8187966823; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Consisting of former Soviet Republics, the Eurasian region has drawn international attention due to its geopolitical significance and hydrocarbon resources, which has prompted the US and other external powers like China, Turkey, Iran, the European Union and India to actively engage themselves in the region. Russia is once again emerging as a central player in the region as it moves towards stabilizing its economy and political system. At the same time, given the pluralities within the region, there are multiple conflicts based on ethnic, religious and geopolitical discontents, making the region susceptible to rivalries and conflicts. Eurasia is also a region where many external powers are seeking to intensify their geopolitical influence. This region, which lies in the extended neighbourhood of India, has had longstanding ties with the subcontinent in the past. The developments in the region have immense security implications for India. In view of India’s rapidly increasing energy requirements, the region could be an alternative source of energy.This book discusses the strategic environment in Eurasia and issues related to security, stability and inter-state relations in Eurasia. The involvement of external powers and their relations with different Eurasian countries is an important theme of the book. Social and cultural dimensions of post-Socialist changes have been discussed in the context of a range of economic and political transformations. The proposition that links changing alignment of state with society in the context of globalisation has been scrutinised in this book.Printed Pages: 480. 104422

Ancient North-East India (Pragjyotisha)
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2002; 8173052190; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 18 x 25 Cm 
"It is often stated and the common people made to believe that the people of what was anciently called Pragjyotisha and its surroundings in the north-east were outside the mainstream of Indian life and culture, and the Aryans attempted to colonise them and impose upon them their alien culture. The utter falsity of this motivated propaganda has been amply demonstrated in the present work with strong evidences. It has been shown that the word arya had originally no racial or linguistic connotation and that in the past it was employed in purely cultural sense. It was given, evidently deliberately, a racial sense by the Europeans with a vested interest to sow the seeds of dissension among their Indian subjects and thereby perpetuate their rule which has confused large sections of people. It has been shown that from the earliest recorded times the people of the north-east and those of the rest of India were aware of and had a close interaction with one another. And with the passage of time these contacts grew more and more intimate and the region in question and the rest of the country contributed to the common cultural development enriching each other. The monograph thus seeks to trace chronologically and in a pan-Indian perspective the politico-cultural contacts that the region had with the rest of the Indian people."

Ancient Indian Heritage Varahamihira's India, 2 Vols
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 1996; 817305083X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 18 x 25 Cm 
Though the great worth of old texts as a source of cultural History is widely acknowledgeed, astrological writings are generally supposed to be deficient in this respect. The erroneousness of the notion will be best illustrated by a glance at the present work dwelling from this angle upon the priceless historical data enshrined in the treatises of Varahamihira, one of the most celebrated astronomers-astrologers that India is justly proud of. His writings afford precious information on practically every aspect of life one can think of and happen to contain the earliest extant datable treatment of several topics in the absence of earlier texts dealing with them which were eclipsed by the comprehensiveness of his works. The present Book takes a critical view of all the information afforded by them objectively in a historical perspective, checking, corroborating and supplementing it from contemporary literary and archaeological sources and highlighting the antecedents and subsequent ramifications in many a case where found imperative. The topics dealt with include, inter alia, historical geography, iconography, idol worship. Indra's festival and other reliogious rituals and practices, varieties of necklaces, perfumery and other items of toilet and personal adornment comprehending hair-dyes, tooth-sticks, umbrellas, chowries and betel-chewing, agricultural and horticultural practices, gem industry and trade, role of Astrology in everyday life, civil and religious architecture, plasters, sculpture, iconometry, earlier literature on a variety of topics much of which is now known only from Varahamihira's works, genesis of the name Varahamihira, Jovian cycles of twelve and sixty years, Meteorology and rainfall, and location of sub-soil water-resources. Thus, this happens to be perhaps the only work presenting critically at one place so much information on so many diverse topics of interest to students of geography, religious history, cosmetics, jewel industry and trade, Agriculture and horticulture, civil and religious architecture, meteorology and hydrology.

Great Ages of Indian History Vakatakas: Sources and History
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 1997; 8173051232; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 18 x 25 Cm 
The Indian subcontinent was dominated by the Imperial Guptas and Vakatakas for some 2.5 centuries beginning mid-third century AD, and is period is rightly styled Vakataka Gupta Age which formed the classical phase of early Indian history. A reappraisal of Vakataka History has become imperative in the light of the recent epigraphical and Numismatic finds with many of which The Author was closely associated. And in the perspective of these finds a fresh assessment of the extant evidence was also felt essential, and this twin exercise is aimed at in the present work which sheds fresh light on many a baffling issue. To mention only A Few conclusions, the original Vakataka territory lay in the Vindhyan region of Central India, wherefrom they immigrated about 300 AD under Pravara Sena I into Vidarbha to spread their wings far and wide; Kanchanaka, modern Nachna, was their first dynastic capital, there being no mention of Purika in the Vakataka Context in the Puranas; the Vindhyan region continued under the dynasty till the time of Prithivi Shena I; Damodara Sena and Pravara Sena II were two distinct personages who ascended the throne one after another, Narendra Sena's accession was disputed and towards the close of his reign he was deprived of his kingdom by his Vatsagulma cousins; his queen Ajjhitabhattarika was probably a Kadamba Princess; Prithivi Shena II recovered the lost territory besides keeping the Nalas at bay; the Vatsagulma branch of the dynasty aspired to spread its wings in south and west from its very inception; Sarva Sena II interfered into internal affairs of the Kadambas of Vanavasi and put his protege Simhavarman on Kadamba throne and the former's son Deva Sena extended his kingdom at the cost of Kadambas right up to Bidar region of Karnataka besides trying to destabilise his Pravarapura cousins; both the branches ended their political career owing to the growing ambitions of their erstwhile vassals and foes from south and west; Dandin's Dasa-kumara-charita has no bearing on Vakataka end.

Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 1999; 8173051593; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 18 x 25 Cm 
The Satavahanas (Andhra or Andhra-jatiya of the historical sections of the Puranas) occupy a pre-eminent position in early Deccanese history comparable only to that of the Kushanas of North India who were almost contemporaries. However, despite scholarly efforts for over a century and half, numerous basic issues appertaining them including the original seat of their power, total duration of their rule and number of monarchs of the imperial line and chronology, especially the epoch of their rise to power, not to speak of minor problems, have continued baffling historians for long for want of dependable data. The present volume represents a cooperative effort of known authorities to highlight and solve these issues in the light of fresh evidence as well as a reinterpretation of the known data occasioned by this new material. Also included in this volume are important contributions on numismatics, epigraphy, and cultural and archaeological facets. These writings have turned the volume into an indispensable source-book for students of Satavahanas and Deccanese history in particular and early Indian history in general. Hopefully it would be found interesting and thought-provoking by discerning readers. Printed Pages: 524 with 47 halftone illustrations. 100211

Commonwealth of Independent State: Energy Security and Development
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2007; 8187966653; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Commonwealth of Independent States [CIS], consisting of the former Soviet Republics, is a region where energy resources and geopolitics have drawn international attention. A range of issues varying from energy issues at the international and local level, policies of states that impact on energy security and also on broader security issues have been discussed by eminent scholars from India and abroad, who also deal with the strategic environment, power rivalries and security architecture in the CIS. Given the pluralities within the region, there are multiple conflicts based on ethnic, religious and geopolitical discontents, making the region susceptible to rivalries and conflicts. At the same time, globalisation and economic liberalisation have influenced state policies and human/social developments in the former Soviet republics. Some of the articles deal with such issues as demography, religion, identity, resource-sharing, mass media, etc. The CIS region, which lies in the extended neighbourhood of India, has had longstanding ties with the subcontinent in the past. The developments in this region have immense security implications for India. In view of India’s rapidly increasing energy requirements, the region could also be an alternate source of energy. The last section of the book mainly discusses the relations of the countries of the CIS with India and the South Asian region.Printed Pages: 380. 104449

Post-Soviet States: Two Decades of Transition and Transformation
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2012; 9789381904206; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
their independence in 1991, the former Soviet Republics have gone through difficult transition processes to achieve cultural, economical and political transformations. Diverse internal dynamics have produced diverse outcomes for the countries and peoples of the former Soviet space. While there are different results of transition, there are also similarities due to many common concerns and expectations. The most important question is, What have these new states transformed into where democracy, free market, and functioning civil society are concerned? Or, Has the transformation led to greater polarisation in terms of rich and poor divide, authoritarianism and withdrawal of the state from providing social security, contested geopolitics and increasing external influence? Apart from discussing the challenges that the post-Soviet states face and their coping strategies, the articles in this book also look at how the Eurasian countries participate in the globalisation process while using the energy and natural resources to their benefit.Printed Pages: 368. 104341

Unconditional Equality: Gandhi’s Religion of Resistance
Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8178244772; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
Unconditional Equality examines Mahatma Gandhi’s critique of liberal ideas of freedom and equality, and his own practice of a freedom and equality organized around religion.Sometimes working against the grain of Gandhi’s explicit formulations, Unconditional Equality reconceives satyagraha (passive resistance) as a politics that strives for the absolute equality of all beings. Liberal traditions usually affirm an abstract equality. But for Gandhi such equality is an “equality of [the] sword”—because it excludes those presumed to lack reason (such as animals or the colonized), but also because those included lose the power to love.Gandhi professes instead a politics organized around dharma, or religion. For him, there can be “no politics without religion.” This involves self-surrender, a freely offered surrender of autonomy and everyday sovereignty. For Gandhi, the “religion that stays in all religions” is satyagraha.Ajay Skaria argues that, conceptually, satyagraha insists on equality without exception of all humans, animals, and things.

Heritage of Harmony: An Insight into Medieval India
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2002; 8121208173; Hardcover; New; New; 
Most of the historical works written on Medieval India depict it as an era of dark ages, replete with oppression, atrocities, injustices, forcible conversion, and destruction of holy places. According to such works, there were constant wars between the rulers either to spread or to protect their respective religions. There was disharmony, disunity, distrust and discord among the people and India lagged behind in every field. this misrepresentation of history has greatly harmed the harmonious co-existence of the Indian people and has promoted feelings of ill will, enmity and intolerance between different communities.The truth is that medieval period was an age of elevation, eloquence and enlightenment. Religion was never a source of strife. People lived together as members of a single family and worked together to make India a land of prosperity that dazzled the eyes of the world. Brilliantly written and structured, the book reads like a novel, yet each and every line is backed by years of diligent research. It seeks to place before the people the picture of medieval India as it really was and to restore the perspective that has been deliberately distorted to suite the separatist design of the British imperialist and communalists.Printed Pages: 320. 106061

Strategic Technologies for the Military: Breaking New Frontiers
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2009; 813210241X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book provides a holistic view of the key technologies that are expected to revolutionise military affairs in the near future and change the nature of warfare tactics and the very concept of the ‘battlefield’. It addresses five key technologies—near-space technology, robotics, directed energy weapons, nanotechnology and biotechnology—and explains why they are being considered for military applicability worldwide. It highlights how they would contribute to the future warfare tactics and defence mechanisms of various countries. In addition, it also discusses the possible military utility of two other technologies—ambient intelligence and cognitive technology. Written in an easy-to-understand style, Strategic Technologies for the Military: Breaking New Frontiers presents a social–scientific approach. It describes the nuances of technological development in specific fields and discusses their relevance for future warfare and for issues such as disarmament and arms control. It also dwells into the impact of these developments on the environment. The book begins with a focus on the research going on in several developed countries in the last decade—some of them for nearly two decades now—and then narrows its focus on India and a few developing countries. It concludes with a few India-specific recommendations, which would help policy-makers and military leadership to methodically incorporate the recent technological developments in the future warfare and defence tactics of the country. As can be gauged from the title, this book will be immensely useful for students and academics working in the fields of defence and strategic studies, politics and international relations.

Multilingual Education for Social Justice: Globalising the Local
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8125036989; Softcover; New; 
The principles for enabling children to become fully proficient multilinguals through schooling are well known. Even so, most indigenous/tribal, minority and marginalised children are not provided with appropriate mother-tongue-based multilingual education (MLE) that would enable them to succeed in school and society. Experts from all continents ask why, and show how it CAN be done. The book discusses general principles and challenges in depth and presents case studies from Canada and the USA, northern Europe, Peru, Africa, India, Nepal and elsewhere in Asia. Analysis by leading scholars in the field shows the importance of building on local experience. Sharing local solutions globally can lead to better theory, and to action for more social justice and equality through education.Printed Pages:408. 101836
