Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 1988; 0521348633; First Edition; Paperback; As New; Very Good; 19 Cms x 25 Cms 
Teach English is a teacher training course that develops practical skills in the teaching of English as a second language.

It is especially designed to meet the needs of teachers whose first language is not English, who teach large classes in rigid classrooms with few resources, who follow a set of syllabus and textbook, who have little control over course content or material.

The Cambridge Introduction to the Short Story in English
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2008; 052173441X; First Edition; Paperback; New; 150 x 230 Mm 
The short story has become an increasingly important genre since the mid-nineteenth century. Complementing The Cambridge Introduction to the American Short Story, this book examines the development of the short story in Britain and other English-language literatures. It considers issues of form and style alongside - and often as part of - a broader discussion of publishing history and the cultural contexts in which the short story has flourished and continues to flourish. In its structure the book provides a chronological survey of the form, usefully grouping writers to show the development of the genre over time. Starting with Dickens and Kipling, the chapters cover key authors from the past two centuries and up to the present day. The focus on form, literary history, and cultural context, together with the highlighting of the greatest short stories and their authors, make this a stimulating and informative overview for all students of English literature. Contents Introduction Part I. The Nineteenth Century: Introduction: Publishers, plots and prestige 1. Charles Dickens and Thomas Hardy 2. Rudyard Kipling and Joseph Conrad 3.

Beating Low Cost Competition: How Premium Brands Can Respond To Cut-Price Rivals
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8126525045; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
Seating Low Cost Competition is U practical guide that will help executives in traditional companies develop winning strategies to meet the growing challenge from low cost competitors. Many companies are being severely challenged by low cost competitors - competitors that offer "good enough" products and services at very attractive prices. In many industries the low cost threat is coming from companies based in developing countries, particularly in Asia. Some of these companies have huge, rapidly growing, highly competitive domestic markets, which help to create low cost competitors that can rapidly become formidable challengers to established Western and other (level open-market players. In other industries it is home-grown companies, such as Ryanair, Aldi, and ING DIRECT that are the challengers.Printed Pages: 272. 104548

Almost Single
HarperCollins Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2007; 8172236557; First Edition; Paperback; New; 198 x 129 Mm 
'My name is Aisha Bhatia, I am twenty-nine years old and single. I work as a Guest Relations Manager at the Grand Orchid Hotel. I dine at luxury hotels and stay in five-stars during my travels; I can name old and new world wines with great élan, and can tell my cheeses apart. I tolerate my job, hate my boss, and bond big-time with my friends, while routinely suffering from umbilical cord whiplash. I don't really care for my vital stats at the moment, and I don't have a cute/funny nickname either. Hence this introduction: it stinks, but it sticks. In fact, sometimes I think there should be support groups like the AA out there for people like me…' Wickedly irreverent and laugh-aloud funny, Almost Single is a delightful romp through the five-star world of champagne brunches, gay soirées, and the dilemmas of hip, young girls on the lookout for love and matrimony.

925 Adya Rangacharya
Introduction to Bharata's Natyasastra
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8121508290; Reprint; Hardcover; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
Bharata's Natyasastra, the earliest treatise on dramatics, is, even today, the origin of our dramatic tradition. Besides being the most important study of dramatics, it is also the most comprehensive. The all-inclusive quality, however, creates problems for the reader who has to go through a great deal of unnecessary information. In his Introduction to Bharata's Natyasastra, the author has culled all information essential and relevant to drama, eliminating the superfluous. Eschewing attempt to provide any kind of a scholarly or original interpretation of Bharata's views, the author has focused on giving the reader a connected account of the study of dramatics using modern terminology. The purpose is to introduce those interested in drama to Bharata's wisdom and to throw light on the state of dramatics in ancient India. Written in a simple and lucid style, the author takes the reader through topics like theatre houses, the stage and stage-craft, play-construction and the rasa theory. All lovers of drama are sure to find this book both useful and absorbing. Printed Pages: 94. 015046

The Natyasastra: English translation with critical Notes
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8121506808; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The Natyasastra is probably one of the earliest and certainly one of the best treatises on Indian Dramaturgy. At the same time, the book available now is not an early one but may be as late as the seventh or eighth century AD. The authorship is traditionally ascribed to Bharata, the Sage. The eminence of Natyasastra is not that it was the first book on the subject but that it was the first comprehensive treatise on Dance, Drama and Music. Like the Mahabharata, Natyasastra too boasts that "What is found here may be found elsewhere. But what is not here cannot be found anywhere". To confer upon it prestige as the sole authority, it was described as the fifth Veda-a Veda accessible to all the castes of society. The essential elements of stage-craft have been described by the Natyasastra thousands of years ago. The question arises, naturally, whether such a treatise can serve any purpose of our time. This was the very question which the author set about to explore in the present translation and his notes on each chapter amply demonstrate how latest problems of actors and directors have been anticipated and resolved in it.

927 Adya Rangacharya; Translated with an Afterword By Shashi Deshpande
Opening Scene: Early Memoris of a Dramatist and a Play
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2008; First Indian Edition; Paperback; New; 13 Cms x 19 Cms 
Yesteryear's giant of Kannada literature, Adya Rangacharya—or Shriranga, as he came to be known—had many such epiphanic moments. That was how the child of an orthodox Brahmin jagirdar family went from watching, at first wide-eyed, village aatas put up by farm labourers to critically observing full-fledged natakas in the cities, taking in the theatre scene in London to finally writing—and often performing in—more than a hundred skilfully developed plays. There was no genre of writing that Shriranga did not touch. Creative writer and critic, he also penned a vast body of scholarly treatises on subjects that ranged from drama to philosophy and philology. His English translation of the Natyashashtra remains the definitive source of reference for most students of theatre. But as his memoirs reveal, his first and most abiding love was drama. His fifty years of association with the theatre were full of achievements, one of which was to bring women on to the amateur stage. Generations of actors have Shriranga to thank for investing their profession with a dignity it had lacked. But Shriranga's memoirs rarely touch upon such achievements. They record, without pomp or sentiment, the genesis and development of a brilliant Kannada dramatist. His daughter Shashi Deshpande's translation and her introduction to her father's life in theatre will bring him under the spotlight for a whole new audience. Printed Pages: 200. 023046

Self-confidence is not an inborn trait or a quality but a practical set of thoughts, beliefs, habits and behaviours which can be learned, in an organised step-by-step format by anyone desiring to create the life of one's deepest dreams.“The practice of Tao builds daily simplification. Less striving occurs, until there is no striving. When effort is uncontrived, nothing is left undone. One who wins the world does so by not meddling with it. One who meddles with the world loses it.” Printed Pages: 173. 108217

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.

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.

972 Agnes Smedley
The Great Road: the Life and Times of Chu Teh (Zhu De)
Aakar Books; New Delhi, India; 9789350024249; Softcover; New; 
Chu Teh, one of the legendary figures of the Chinese Revolution, was born in 1886. He was commander in cheif of the People`s Revolutionary Army, and this is the story fo the first sixty years of his life. As a supreme commanding general, he was probably unique; surely there has never been another commander in chief who, during his years of service, spun, wove, set type, grew and cooked his own food, wrote poetry and lectured not only to his troops on military strategy and tactice but to women`s classes on how to preserve vegetables. Evans Carlson wrote that "Chu Teh has the kindness of a Robert E. Lee, the tenacity fo a Grant, and the humanity of a Lincoln." Chu Teh died in 1976. More than a biography, this work by a great American woman journalist, who took the account from Chu Teh himself, is a social and historical document of the highest value. In tracing her subject`s life from his early peasant days, Agnes Smedley provides both a sociological classic on rural China and a narrative of the Revolution, with few gaps from start to finish, as it appeared to its leading military figure.

974 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

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

989 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.

Do the Poor Matter Enough: A Comparative Study of European Aid for Poverty Reduction in India
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2002; 8170229146; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book, based on the study of 33 projects in India aided by six European donors. The European Commission, Denmark, Germany, Netherlands, Sweden and United Kingdom seeks to examine the aid programmes from the perspective of poverty reduction. It conceptualises poverty alleviation as a multi-dimensional phenomenon which involves changes in livelihoods, resources, knowledge and rights, as also it analyses the manner and means through which the donors aid programmes are organised and implemented. The study also assesses the donor strategies, the donor recipient dialogue, the recipient perception of aid as well as the effectiveness in terms of poverty reduction of the programmes and a number of selected interventions in nine different sectors, namely watershed, irrigation, forestry, drinking water, primary health, primary education, women training, urban housing and self-help projects. This book is useful for those engaged in the formulation and implementation of poverty alleviation programmes, academics working in the field of aid and development, NGOs as well as other development activists. It also serves as a useful supplementary text for courses in higher education and specialised training programmes with focus on aid policy, project and programme design, poverty reduction, government aiddonor relations and so on.

Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2011; 9522223239; New; 
Suomalaisten kieltolakikuva on varsin miehinen ja kostea. Aikalaisnäkemyksissä kieltolakia pidettiin kuitenkin naisten lakina. Naisten oletettu kieltolain sataprosenttinen kannatus osoittautuikin joulukuun 1931 kansanäänestyksessä vastustukseksi. Yksi tärkeimmistä kansanäänestykseen johtaneista mielenilmaisuista oli 118 537 naisen keväällä 1931 allekirjoittama kieltolain vastainen adressi. Kieltolakitaistelun rintamat asettuivat sukupuolen ohella linjoille kaupunki – maaseutu, porvarilliset – työväki, ruotsinkieliset – suomenkieliset. Niin kieltolakia kannattaneet kuin vastustaneetkin naiset halusivat edistää suomalaisten raittiutta. Printed Pages: 300. 115544

Indian Muslims Against British Rule
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789351250753; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book ‘Indian Muslims Against British Rule’ includes the events of the Uprising of 1857 and the participation of the Muslims, particularly the theologians as their religious duty to uproot the British rule from the Indian subcontinent. This work is an attempt to prove the Muslim, a true patriot and the real hero of the first war of independence, and remind the readers, what actually happened during the inordinate episode in 1857 and thereafter. It’s the work of different historical dimension with independent analysis and research in the modern context. In this work, I have tried to do justice to the ideologically complex topic which was the need of the time and awaken my readers about the Muslim torch bearers which always taught the lesson of love to the country and its people irrespective of caste and creed. Apart from the general history of the Uprising, the role of the Wahabi and Faraizi Movements also has been discussed in the context of the circumstances after a deep research and analysis. The role of the personalities like Bahadur Shah Zafar, General Bakht Khan, Sir Syed Ahmad Khan, Mirza Ghalib, and other related personalities have been very widely discussed. The print media or journalism of that time, particularly the Urdu Press which was the main source of inspiration to the common people has also been discussed in detail. I have much hope with this book that it would change the common mindset which has been developed about the Indian Muslim since the partition of India. Printed Pages: 242. 112373

1000 Aila Lauha
Suomen kirkon kansainväliset suhteet 1923–1925
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 1993; 9519021892; New; 
Tutkimus on jatkoa Lauhan väitöskirjalle, joka tarkasteli Suomen kirkon kansainvälisiä suhteita 1918–22. Tekijä lähestyy tutkimuskohdettaan toisaalta Suomen poliittisen aseman kannalta, toisaalta maailmanlaajuisen ekumeenisen liikkeen tarjoamaa taustaa vastaan. Samalla hän analysoi luterilaisen kirkon johdon sisäistä valtataistelua ja teologisia jännitteitä. Printed Pages: 384. 114597
