Wanderings of a Pilgrim: In search of the picturesque, during four-and-twenty years in the east; with revelations of life in the Zenana, 2 vols.

Fanny Parks accompanied her husband, a customs official, to India in 1822 and, unlike other British wives, many of whom found the heat oppressive and the way of life uncongenial, thoroughly immersed herself in all things Indian and Hindu, becoming an avid and knowledgeable student of Hindu life and history. She speaks of "us Indians" and was appalled at the idea of having to return to England. She travelled extensively, often solo, and declares "Roaming about with a good tent and a good Arab, one might be happy for ever in India.

Elämäntaitojen Aärellä: Taidetyöpaja nuorten elämäntaitojen Vahvistajana
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2016; 9527175127; New; 
”Perjantaina koin valaistumisen, että voin omalla asenteellani vaikuttaa asioihin.” ”Se, että omat epäilykset osoittautuvat vääriksi, on sitä onnistumista.” Moni peruskoulun jälkeen vaille työtä tai opiskelupaikkaa jäänyt nuori on ymmällään ja etsii suuntaa elämälleen. Vaikka tällaiset nuoret sijoittuvatkin koululaitoksen institutionaalisessa rakenteessa eräänlaiseen välitilaan, ei heitä tule lähestyä yksinomaan ”syrjäytymisvaarassa” olevina toimenpiteiden kohteina. Olennaista on sen sijaan keskittyä nuorten omaan toimijuuteen ja sen tukemiseen. Lasten ja nuorten säätiön toteuttaman Taidot elämään -hankkeen (2013–2016) tavoitteena on vahvistaa taidetoiminnan avulla nuorten identiteettiä ja avata nuorille näkymiä heidän oman elämänsä mahdollisuuksiin. Hankkeen ytimessä on taiteilijaohjaajien johdolla toteutettava taideprojektiviikko, jossa nuoret pääsevät koettelemaan taitojaan sirkus- ja elokuvatyöpajoissa. Elämäntaitojen äärellä -tutkimusraportissa tarkastellaan taideprojektiviikon suhdetta elämäntaitoihin sekä nuorten kokemuksia taidetoiminnan merkityksistä. Lisäksi pohditaan nivelvaiheen koulutusta taideviikon toteuttamisympäristönä. Tutkimus pohjautuu kahdentoista ammattistarttiluokilla toteutetun taidetyöpajan havainnointiin. Raportti sopii luettavaksi kaikille nuorten parissa työskenteleville ja taidekasvatuksesta kiinnostuneille. Printed Pages: 65. 114799

9905 Faqirullah (Nawab Saif Khan) & Shahab Sarmadee (Ed.)
Tarjuma-I-Manakutuhala and Risala-I-Ragadarpana
Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts/MLBD; New Delhi, India; 1996; 8120812824; Hardcover; New; New; 
This is the first Persian text brought out in the Kalamulasastra Series. The volume presents a combined text on music in Persian that was compiled during the seventeenth century CE. The fact of its being a combined text has gone unnoticed till recently. This work is important from various points of view. It was through the first part of this text i.e. up to chapter two that an important compilation on the identification of Ragas accomplished under the supervision of Raja Mansingh Tomar of Gwalior entitled Manakutuhala is preserved for posterity in Persian translation, which was till now considered lost in original. The appended treatise incorporates further details on the development of contemporary music. It isundoubtedly one of the few important texts which sheds significant light on the music of the Mughal period. Also, a unique feature of this work is that it covers the period during which the internal and the external forces worked together resulting in a new synthesis. In this configuration, music played a significant role to integrate diverse views.Printed Pages: 362. 101610

Assassination of Rajiv Gandhi: An Inside Job
Vitasta Publishing Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789382711476; Hardcover; New; New; 
For twenty-three years a myth has been perpetuated that former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated by the LTTE because it feared his triumphant return to power at the conclusion of the 1991 general electrons, underway, when Rajiv, out of power was assassinated on 21 May 1991. But if this basic premise is knocked off and the alternate scenario is shown that the Congress which returned to power in 1991 even after Rajiv’s assassination considerably short of a simple majority, had no chance of returning to power, had Rajiv not been sacrificed thus, then the entire bottom of this myth is knocked off and the whole theory falls flat on its nose. This is the premise on which everyone starting from CBI-SIT to the Supreme Court and numerous analysts and theorists have built their castles of conspiracy. This book is also about conspiracies and intrigue, but it has attempted to explode this myth and seeks to find why Rajiv was killed if he was not likely to return to power in the 1991 mid-term elections?

9911 Fareed Zakaria
The Post-American World
Penguin/Viking; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0670082295; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
For Fareed Zakaria, the great story of our times is ‘the rise of the rest’–the growth of countries like China, India, Brazil, Russia, South Africa and Kenya, which is generating a new global landscape. Global power is shifting, and wealth and innovation are bubbling up in unexpected places: the tallest buildings, biggest dams, top-selling movies and most advanced mobile phones are all being built or made outside the United States. Countries that until recently lacked political confidence and national pride are finding them. As these trends continue, the great engine of globalization will increasingly be powered by nationalism, setting the world on a course that is likely to define the next decades, yet which it is not yet equipped to tackle. The current political debate in much of the first world is utterly out of touch with this broad development, obsessed with issues like terrorism, immigration and economic panics. The real challenges we face come from the winners not the losers of the new world. Zakaria outlines the contemporary diffusion of power throughout the world. With lucidity, insight and imagination, he draws on lessons from the two great power shifts of the past 500 years–the rise of the Western world and the rise of the United States–to tell us what we can expect from the third shift. The great challenge for Britain in the twentieth century was economic decline. The challenge for America in the twenty-first is political decline, for as others grow in importance, the central role of the United States will inevitably shrink. Zakaria argues that Washington needs to begin a serious transformation of its global strategy, moving from being the dominating hegemon to a role that is more like an honest broker. It must seek to share power, create coalitions, build legitimacy and defi ne the global agenda – all formidable tasks. None of this will be easy for the only power that has really mattered for so long. But as we learn in this incisive and eloquent new book, all that is changing now. The future the world faces is the post-American world. Printed Pages: 304. 026166

9913 Farhad Khosrokhavar
Suicide Bombers: Allah's New Martyrs
Pluto Press; London, UK; 2005; 0745322832; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
In the West, the suicide bomber has become a familiar image in newspapers and on television. In Palestine, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia and elsewhere, the results of suicide bombing have been devastating. What drives young men and women to become suicide bombers? This is not a question that is often addressed. / This remarkable book provides some of the answers, and explores how the suicide bomber relates to the concept of the martyr in fundamentalist Islam. Farhad Khosrokhavar contrasts it with the idea of the martyr in Christianity. Most importantly, he offers a clear insight into the different ways in which the concept is viewed within Islam, including divisions within Islamic fundamentalist groups, which change according to the political situation of the country in which they are based. / Drawing on extensive interviews with jailed Islamist militants, Farhad Khosrokhavar examines differing attitudes towards the 'sacred death' in various Islamic countries, including Iran, Palestine, Lebanon and Egypt. He also investigates transnational networks such as Al-Qaeda, offering portraits of various prisoners who belong to the group. / Farhad Khosrokhavar distinguishes between two types of martyr: those from the developing world, who are excluded from what modernity has to offer; and the minority who live at the heart of the Western world - a mainly middle-class diaspora from the Middle East and the Maghreb who are at ease with several cultural codes, but whose experience of the West is still marked by racism and discrimination.

The Socio-Cultural Context of Water: Study of a Gujarat Village
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8125054308; Hardcover; New; New; 
Water as a commodity in a consumer society is critically studied in this volume, the rural hinterland being viewed through the micro world of Mathnaa. Socio-cultural Context of Water: Study of a Gujarat Village analyses various aspects of water management at a project in Mathnaa in Sabarkantha district of the state of Gujarat noted for its aridity.This small village is sharply differentiated along the lines of caste, tribe, class and gender. Wells are the main source of irrigation, rainfall being erratic. Water scarcity is an arena of conflict, which leads to the social actors trying to exploit the situation for their vested interests depending on their relative power positions. A significant finding of this volume is that Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe farmers too own borewells and are able to participate in user-group committees, thus gaining social mobility.Printed Pages: 256. 101758

Indian Theatre: Traditions of Performance (Performing Arts Series: Vol. I)
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 8120809815; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Indian Theatre expands the boundaries of what is usually regarded as theatre in order to explore the multiple dimensions of theatrical performance in India. From rural festivals to contemporary urban theatre, from dramatic rituals and devotional performances to dance-dramas and classical Sanskrit plays, this volume is a vivid introduction to the colourful and often surprising world of Indian performance. Besides mapping the vast range of performance traditions, the volume provides in-depth treatment of representative genres, including well-known forms such as Kathakali and ram lila and little-knowa performances such as tamasha. Each of these chapters explains the historical background of the theatre form under consideration and interprets its dramatic literature, probes its ritual or religious significance, and, where relevant, explores its social and political implications. Moreover, each chapter, except for those on the origins of Indian theatre, concludes with performance notes describing the actual experience of seeing a live performance in its original context. Based on extensive fieldwork, Indian Theatre is the first comprehensive account of the subject to be written by Western specialists and addressed to the needs of readers in the West. It will be a valuable resource for all students of Indian culture and a standard work in the history of theatre and performance for years to come. Printed Pages: 501. 033564

This study provides a picture of the life styles of women both Christian and non-Christian in Goa (a tiny state in the west coast of India) during the Portuguese colonial rule. Customs, traditions and rituals dominated the life of the Goan women. The State and the Church played a significant role in upgrading their position. The Portuguese rule seemed to have made a difference to the status of women. As a result the conditions of women in Goa were far better than their counterparts elsewhere in India.

The War That Wasn't: The Sufi and the Sultan
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8121511682; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The main thrust of the book is to analyze the subtle nuances of the dynamics of Sufi power in the social politics of the Delhi sultanate, and how this power affected the relations between the Sufi and the Sultanate - the two most powerful institutions in medieval India. This book contains numerous anecdotes from medieval Persian sources, while dealing with incidents related to these Sufis. Author's object in this book has been to examine the broad bases of Sufi history in the Sultanate period to adduce the sufficient evidence to suggest the need for a new approach. This work contains vital aspects of the Sufi movement, i.e., philosophy and practices of Sufism, development and practices of Sufism, development of Sufism in India, dynamics of Sufi power and the multidimensional role of the Sufi hospices, especially, as an impetus to urban expansion, i.e., khanqahs in India, during the Sultanate period.

Sacrificing People: Invasions of a Tribal Landscape
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8125041893; Softcover; New; 
Sacrificing People is a provocative anthropological study of the structures of power and authority which the British rule imposed on a tribal people of Central India, the Konds. The Konds practised human sacrifice and in the pretext of rooting out this ‘barbaric’ ritual, the British waged wars of conquest against them subjecting them to a century of exploitation. Recalling the violence during the colonial period, this book puts into perspective the violence and ethnic cleansing in the district of Kandhamal (2007–8) when invading forces burnt dozens of Kond villages. It also brings to light how mining companies have invaded the Kond territory due to the rich Bauxite cappings dominating their largest mountains and displaced several million tribal people.

Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8125038671; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Capping the biggest mountains in south Odisha are some of the world’s best deposits of Bauxite, the ore for aluminium—mineral wealth to bring prosperity to one of India’s poorest states. But for tribal people who have lived around them since history began, these mountains are sacred—not a resource to be exploited, but a source of life itself, through the water they store, and release in perennial streams. So metal factories, built in tribal areas with a view to mining the mountain summits, are seen as a new colonial invasion, to be resisted. Thousands of Adivasis have already been displaced, in a process of cultural genocide, that involves notorious scams, and corrupts the values of civil society at the same time as wasting irreplaceable resources. Aluminium is a metal we take for granted in hundreds of artefacts. But what do we understand about its real costs? This book traces a hidden history, coming alive through hundreds of voices and stories, of how one country after another swallowed promises of prosperity, and plunged into a cycle of exploitation and unrepayable debt. What is the link between the massive meltdown of Iceland’s banks, and the promotion of dams and smelters? Between the mafia-style looting of Russia’s assets and the rise to power of a succession of aluminium barons? Why did the US set a limit during the 1950s-60s and start to outsource aluminium factories to other, poorer countries, such as Ghana, Guinea, Jamaica, India? The answer lies in hidden subsidies and prohibitive ‘externality costs’. Making aluminium consumes vast quantities of water and electricity. The industry is driven by a cartel that fuses mining companies, investment bankers, government deals, metals traders and arms manufacturers. Secret deals motivate the projects. Behind these stand metals traders in derivatives, in London and other capitals, whose deals drive the industry through futures contracts. Adivasis who oppose this invasion of their landscape by aluminium projects in East India face an enemy as remorseless and difficult to fathom as the colonial East India Company. Mining projects are fuelled by an entrenched notion of development so powerful, that democracy and human rights often seem to wither in the face of it. This penetrating anthropological study uncovers an epic clash of ideologies that pits metals traders against Indian citizens whose lifestyle is a model of long-term sustainability. (400) The cover is a still from the documentary film by Amarendra & Samarendra Das: Wira Pdika: Matiro Poko, Company Loko (Earth Worm, Company Man, 2005). Printed Pages: 752. 033220

Ecology, Economy: Quest for a Socially Informed Connection
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8125051791; Hardcover; New; New; 
Ecology, Economy is an elaborate argument to establish society as central in policy-making for holistic development. The book presents cases of the adverse effects of resource utilisation—water, metals, power, land—on Adivasi communities in particular. It presents an overview of the paradoxes inherent in ‘development’ projects, emphasising the drastic drop in the standard of living of rural communities, and the immeasurable damage to India’s ecosystems and resource base.The authors highlight the tussle between real growth and the rule of law, the informalisation of labour under a neoliberal economy, and current threats to ‘Adivasi Economics’—the little monetised systems based on a long-term symbiosis with the natural environment, based on taking from the ecosystem without intrinsically damaging it.Printed Pages: 340. 101763

Grass-Roots NGOs By Women for Women: The Driving Force of Development in India
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2006; 0761935002; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Adopting an inter-disciplinary approach, this book provides an in-depth understanding of why Indian NGOs run by women for women, tend to be successful. Based on first-hand observations spanning five years and interviews with 20 founders of NGOs, this book explores the factors that motivate and facilitate women entrepreneurship in the development sector. It examines the organizational structures that have evolved based on feminist ideology and the services provided (e.g. self-help groups and micro-finance). The authors also discuss the social impact of these NGOs in promoting both development and women’s empowerment. They show how small NGOs are particularly effective in garnering support from the grass-roots and in tapping the knowledge base of local communities. Overall, the authors find that women entrepreneurs act as facilitators with a unique leadership style and that they encourage community-based movements grounded in local issues. As a result, these NGOs are successfully changing the landscape of rural poverty in India while ushering in sustainable development. Printed Pages: 236. 028615

The Tears of the Rajas: Munity, Money and Marriage in India 1805–1905
Simon and Schuster; New York, USA; 1471129462; First Edition; Paperback; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
The Tears of the Rajas is a sweeping history of the British in India, seen through the experiences of a single Scottish family. For a century the lows of clatto survived mutiny, siege, debt and disease, everywhere from the heat of Madras to the Afghan snows. They lived through the most appalling atrocities and retaliated with some of their own. Each of their lives, remarkable in itself, contributes to the story of the whole fragile and imperiled, often shockingly oppressive and devious but now and then heroic and poignant enterprise. On the surface, John and Augusta Low and their relations may seem imperturbable, but in their letters and diaries they often reveal their loneliness and desperation and their doubts about what they are doing in India. The Lows are the family of the author's grandmother and a recurring theme of the book is his own discovery of them and of those parts of the history of the British in India which posterity has preferred to forget. The book brings to life not only the most dramatic incidents of their careers - the massacre at Vellore, the conquest of Java, the deposition of the boy-king of Oudh, the disasters in Afghanistan, the Reliefs of Lucknow and Chitral - but also their personal ordeals - the bankruptcies in Scotland and Calcutta, the plagues and fevers, the deaths of children and deaths in childbirth. And it brings to life to the unrepeatable strangeness of their lives - the camps and the palaces they lived in, the balls and the flirtations in the hill stations and the hot slow rides through the dust. An epic saga of love, war, intrigue and treachery, the tears of the Rajas is surely destined to become a classic of its kind. Printed Pages: 773. 037933

In Quest of Freedom
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8170223091; Hardcover; New; New; 
In Quest of Freedom, though it purports to be primarily an account of personal experiences of the author, is more than that. It provides glimpses into various aspects of the non-violent struggle launched in Goa since August 1954. It sheds light on the reign of fear that prevailed in Goa after that, and the police brutalities against the freedom fighters. The author succeeds in presenting the account as a struggle of the free human spirit against the powers of tyranny. The book is a testimony to the idealism that moved a generation of Goans of those times. Very striking is the capacity of the author to see the good points even in the Portuguese police and to display a sense of humour in describing situations that would normally be painted in a somber style.

Buddhist Positiveness: Studies on the Lotus Sutra
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8120831918; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Lotus Sutra is one of the Buddhist texts which can give a real Idea of the force, originality, influence, and value of the Buddhist Positivene;5s. This essay on Buddhist Positiveness was originally written (in 1994) by Fernando Tola as an answer to the Catholic Pope's criticism of Buddhism, according to which Buddhism is a 'negative' religion; and this essay was presented afterwards, in an abridged version, as a paper, in The International Conference of The International Association of Buddhist Studies held in Lausanne, Switzerland (in 1999). The topics which are dealt with in this book are on the conflict of change in Buddhism; the conflict of change in the Lotus Sutra; apologetics and harmony in the Lotus Sutra and Bhavya; sunyata in the Lutus Sutra; some reflections that the translation of the saddharmapundarikasutra ) from its original text into Spanish) provoked in the authors regarding some linguistic, semantic and communication problems; the meaning of the infinite numbers in the Lotus Sutra; beginninglessness of the Veda and the Dharma, names of the Bhiksus and Bodhisattvas in the Lotus Sutra; Buddhist spirituality: positiveness in the Lotus Sutra; Buddhism and family; attitudes in regard to food in Ancient India, and some important reviews concerning the Lotus Sutra.Printed Pages: 286. 102348

The Mahabharata and Greek Mythology (Hindu Tradition Series)
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2017; 8120837916; Hardcover; New; New; 
After the arrival of Alexander the Great in the 4th century BCE, India was in permanent relation with the Mediterranean world. When Rome conquered Egypt and took a special interest in the routes to India, the subcontinent and its inhabitants played a key role as an economic and cultural reference in a globalized world stretching from Western Europe and North Africa to China. In an Indian scenario full of ideological and religious pluralism, interactions, learning and creations, adaptation of new concepts and technological and artistic transfer were an essential part of the emerging cultural and social realities. This book, based on a previous publication in Spanish, defends that in the Mahabharata-one of the most profound, captivating and richest stories of human history and, without a doubt, the most vivid of the world's epics-Greek mythological and epic materials were systematically employed. The employment of these materials by no means takes away from the work's authenticity, instead quite the contrary. The work was no doubt original, new and loaded with significance for the society that gave it birth, for those societies which follow, and to those which, by no accident, the work helped to shape. The acceptance of the intelligent and creative use of Greek materials in the Mahabharata to cover specific artistic and ideological goals does not imply any demerit for their author or authors. On the contrary, it is merely the discovery of an unknown facet of its genius. Cultural contacts between India and the Hellenistic world have interested scholars virtually from the beginning of modern Indology. This interest has at present almost come to a standstill. Scholars may be willing to consider Indian influence on the Mediterranean world and elsewhere (Buddhism, for example, spread far and wide outside India), but frown upon influence in the opposite direction. Indologists tend to look upon India as an isolated culture, and try to understand its different features as the results of indigenous developments. The presence of Hellenistic elements in Indian astronomy, or in early Buddhist art, is reluctantly accepted, but attempts to see Hellenistic influence on the Indian theatre, or on Indian philosophy, are rejected or reasoned away. And yet, the relationship between India and the Hellenistic world was not symmetrical. There never was an Indian political entity in or near the Mediterranean, but there was a strong Greek political presence right next to, and to some extent on the Indian subcontinent during the formative period of classical Indian culture. And the end of a Greek political presence did not signal the end of a Greek cultural presence. Emperor Asoka used Greek in some of his inscriptions, and Greek was still used many centuries later, for example on Kusana coins. Seen this way, it would be surprising if Greek culture had not exerted an influence on classical Indian culture. The present book takes up the question where other scholars had left, or rather abandoned, it. As its title indicates, it focuses on the influence of Greek mythology on the Mahabharata. The Iliad in particular has many themes in common with the Mahabharata, so much so that influence from the former on the latter is, in the opinion of its author,beyond doubt. Obviously this claim will have to be examined by other specialists, but it is equally clear that it cannot be discarded lightly. If accepted, this claim will have a bearing on Indian studies in general, more in particular on Mahabharata studies, and most specifically on the vexed question of the composition of this text.

Other Orientalisms: India Between Florence and Bombay, 1860-1900
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8125047581; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Other Orientalisms analyses different forms of knowledge about India through the circulation of people, ideas, information, images and objects between Florence and Bombay through the last decades of the nineteenth century. During this period, Florence became a centre of studies on India, organizing and promoting exhibitions, museums, journals, and international conferences. Based on the relationship between two Indianists – the Italian Angelo de Gubernatis, professor of Sanskrit in Florence, and the Goan historian José Gerson da Cunha, doctor and historian in Bombay – this book reveals an India created in different places and manifested by multiple voices. By being marginal to the main European colonial metropolis, the institutional, intellectual and visual experience of Florentine Orientalism enriches the debate on power and colonial knowledge that has been very much at the centre of the social sciences in the last decades. Likewise, by exploring the intellectual world of Bombay in the second half of the nineteenth century, made up of people from a variety of cultural, national and religious backgrounds, this book contributes to the wider cultural history of colonial India. By combining fascinating unpublished materials of this period, with a deep analysis embedded in contemporary historiographical approaches such as European and India encounters in a colonial context; the debate on “orientalism” initiated by Edward W. Said, or the global circulation of knowledge, people and objects, this books provides new insights into different fields. Printed Pages: 360. 037525

A Struggle for Identity: Muslim Women in the United Provinces
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789382993063; Hardcover; New; New; 
In the nineteenth century the British were occupied with the question of becoming socially acceptable as they had already established political and military sway in India. It was in this context that the servants of the East India Company merchants adventurers and missionaries who arrived in India from Europe attempted to enter the zennana in much the same manner as the ruling Indian elites. These foreigners adopted the ways of the ruling class and thus demonstrated a preference for the Muslim section of Indian society. This book is an attempt to understand the social and economic profile of Muslim women in India and to shed light on the conditions of Indian Muslim women in the United Province particularly after 1857. This period is significant for Muslim society as it was undergoing social and economic transition especially with the Mughal dynasty reaching its end.In the nineteenth century the British were occupied with the question of becoming socially acceptable as they had already established political and military sway in India.

Besides the book critically discusses the influence of how the new colonial judicial system weakened traditional customs and questions whether this legal system was beneficial to Muslim women or whether it enhanced its complexities.Printed Pages: 273. 101430

9977 Fjodor Dostojevski
Talvisia merkintöjä kesän Vaikutelmista
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2009; 9525503356; New; 
Suuri venäläinen klassikko Fjodor Dostojevski (1821–1881) osallistui myös yhteiskunnalliseen keskusteluun aikakauslehdissä. Yksi hänen tärkeimmistä teemoistaan oli venäläisten suhde eurooppalaiseen filosofiaan: Dostojevskin mukaan Venäjä ei kuulu Eurooppaan eikä sen tulekaan kuulua, vaan sen pitää kulkea omaa bysanttilaista tietään. Dostojevskin omaleimaisen filosofis-uskonnollisen maailmankatsomuksen ohella valikoimaan sisältyvät kirjoitukset tuovat esille vähemmän tunnetun, poleemisen Dostojevskin. Lisäksi teokseen Talvisia merkintöjä kesän vaikutelmista sisältyy suomentaja Tiina Kartanon johdanto. Valikoiman päättävät filosofi Vladimir Solovjovin Kolme puhetta Dostojevskin muistolle, joissa Solovjov esittelee Dostojevskin kristillisen utopian. Printed Pages: 212. 116710

Law and Gender Inequality: The Politics of Women's Rights in India
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2001; 0-19-566445-6; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Law and Gender Inequality maps the issue of gender and law reform upon a broad canvas of history and politics, and explores strategies which could safeguard women's rights within India's sphere of complex social and political boundaries. Written in a lucid style, this book provides an invaluable analysis of the current trends of the debate on the Uniform Civil Code and goes on to expose the communal undertones of some recent judicial pronouncements. The author brings the focus of this debate to the central issue - that of arresting the trend of destitution and consequential impoverishment of Indian women from all religious communities.

Family Law: Family Laws and Constitutional Claims, Vol. I
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2011; 0198067909; Softcover; New; 
The first of two-volumes on the subject, this book provides an in-depth analysis of family laws while exploring the overlaps and contradictions in them. It reviews the legal history of personal laws of the colonial and post colonial periods and their application in contemporary matrimonial law. The ground level litigation practices are interwoven with the framework of statutory provisions, which in turn provide an entry point into the rights discourses and social movements. The book discusses cases, Acts, and amendments, and unravels legal complexities. The concern of the book is to weave women`s realities into legal theories and position women`s claims within the Constitution to highlight the lacunae in laws and to analyse their effectiveness at the ground level. It further discusses the strategies which need to be adopted to make these laws work effectively. Printed Pages: 600. 108887

Negotiating Spaces: Legal Domains, Gender Concerns, and Community Constructs
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2012; 0198076630; Hardcover; New; New; 
Laws protecting women are based on a belief that gender-sensitive statutory laws can protect women better than the laws based on community practices of patriarchal traditions. However, in India these two sets of laws constantly overlap. Though apparently in conflict, the statutory laws, which are deemed to be uniform and certain but also formal and alien, coexist alongside the pluralistic community practices which are fluid, ridden with internal contradictions but also accessible. This volume analyses the impact of such laws on women`s rights, and studies the interventionist role of courts. The essays explore the contradictions that Indian women face when it comes to choosing between the formal state laws and community-based laws. The volume raises an important question that if law is not the sole arbiter which determines women`s rights, what are the other locations with which we need to engage for the determination of these rights? Unless we view the composite whole of women`s lives, it is difficult for us to comprehend the way women negotiate their rights. The essays in this volume contextualize these negotiations in order to better understand how and why certain laws work for women, and the manner in which we can engage with the process of social transformation beyond the realm of legal norms and dictates.

Existence and Enlightenment in the Lankavatara-Sutra (A Study in the Ontology and Epistemology of the Yogacara School of Mahayana Buddhism)
Sri Satguru Publications; Delhi, India; 1992; 8170303117; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This Book offers a systematic analysis of one of the most important concepts characterizing the Yogacara School of Buddhism (the last creative stage of Indian Buddhism as outlined and explained in one of its most authoritative and influential texts, Lankavatara-sutra. Compiled in the second half of the fourth-century A.D., this sutra not only represents a comprehensive synthesis of both early and late religio-philosophical ideas crucial to the understanding of Buddhism in India, but it also provides and Insight into the very early Roots of Japanese Zen Buddhism in the heart of the South Asian esotericism.The first part of the book outlines the three-fold nature of being, as conceptualized in Buddhist metaphysics. The Author uses an interpretive framework borrowed from the existentialist philosophy of Heidgger, in order to separate the transcendental Essence of Being from its Temporal manifestation as Self, and from its Spatial or Cosmic dimension. The second part clarifies the Buddhist approach to knowledge in its religious, transcendental sense and it shows that the Buddhists were actually first in making use of dialectical reasoning for the purpose of transcending the contradictory dualities imbedded in the common ways of perceiving, thinking, and arguing about reality.Printed Pages: 393. 101128
