iMuslims: Rewriting the House of Islam
Hurst & Company; London, UK; 1850659516; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 145 x 225 Mm 
The internet has profoundly shaped how Muslims perceive Islam, and how Islamic societies and networks are evolving within the twenty-first century. While these electronic interfaces appear new and innovative in terms of how the media is applied, much of their content has a basis in classical Islamic concepts, with an historical resonance that can be traced back to the time of the Prophet Muhammad. i-Muslims explores how these transformations and influences play out in diverse cyber Islamic environments, and how they are responding to shifts in technology and society. The author discusses how, in some contexts, the application of the internet has had an overarching transformational effect on how Muslims practise Islam, how forms of Islam are represented to the wider world, and how Muslim societies perceive themselves and their peers. Cyber Islamic environments have exposed Muslims to radical and new influences beyond the traditional spheres of knowledge and authority, including through social networking sites and the blogosphere. Gary Bunt also explores how the internet has dramatically influenced jihad-oriented campaigns by networks such as al-Qaeda, and how it has revolutionized the propagation of new forms of Islamic activism and radicalization. He concludes by determining the way forward for the articulation of diverse understandings of Islam online, and how Muslim networks will be further shaped through their relationships with the internet.

10707 Gauranga Nath Banerjee
Hellenism in Ancient India
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1981; 8121502101; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
What is the extent of Greek influence on the Art, Culture and Civilisation of Ancient India? To this basic question that concerns the very history of our land, there are two diverse answers, extremely opposed to each other. There is one school, mainly consisting of European scholars, that asserts that everything Indian has been, in its early beginnings, influenced by our contacts with Greece. There is the other patriotic achool that refutes this theory and upholds the absolute independence of Indian thought and culture. The author, one of the few eminent historians which India has ever produced, has approached this question objectively and analysed the slight yet stimulating influence of Greece on Indian thought and culture in all its manifold aspects, since the time of Alexander's invasion. The book is of such importance that no student of Indian History or Culture can claim his study to be complete without it. Printed Pages: 284. 033669

10710 Gaurav Sharma
Gone are the Days
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2016; 9789351282372; Softcover; New; 
Ever since this world came into existence, mankind is racing against time. 'Gone Are The Days!' is a story about Gaurav, a boy who hails from Sitamarhi, a small town in Bihar. As Gaurav was born in a Punjabi family , spent his childhood in Bihar, lived in Delhi afterwards and went to Canada thereafter , he faces a huge mismatch in life. He recalls his memories from the past and shares it with the world. He carries with himself, a thirst to control time. He rushes to chase his unidentified dreams, make his life comfortable and often overlooks what life brings for him; what life has to offer . In this hodgepodge of reaching out somewhere, achieving something big, seeking happiness and securing the future, he somehow remains deprived of enjoying his very own moments of life. In this quest of leaving everyone behind and reaching the top, there comes a time when he finds himself in solitude; not because he left everyone behind but because he couldn't keep up with them.

Vedic Elements in Puranic Mantras and Rituals
Nag Publishers; Delhi, India; 2000; 8170815134; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The book presents a comparative study of some Vedic elements such as deities, mantra-s, rituals, myths etc., reflected in the Purana-s. Purana-s, the literature of the masses, attempt at the re-statement of the meaning of the Veda-s in their own style. In doing so, they resort to additions, omissions, simplifications and modifications; yet the main stream is never lost sight of Well considered arrangement of the chapters and two appendices, giving a bird's eye-view of the position of the Vedic mantra-s in the Purana-s, special features of the book. It is hoped that this seminal work, presenting a comparative angle, would be of great help to those interested in such studies.Printed Pages: 404. 103945

10725 Gaurinath Sastri
Introduction to Tantra, 2 Vols
Cosmo Publisher; New Delhi, India; 2001; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Some years ago. Professor Cowell wrote, "the Tantras from a branch of literature highly esteemed though at present much neglected". The Tantra Sastra. together with its accompanying oral tradition, is the voluminous source of the greater part of The Hindu ritual, Hathayoga, and the various forms of spiritual training which pass under the generic term "Sadhana."In fact, both popular and esoteric Hinduism is. in its practical aspects. largely Tantrik. Recently an increased interest has been shown in the Hindu beliefs and traditions. Hitherto, however, attention has chiefly directed to those great Vedantik principles, which, subsumed, to a greater or less degree, in the beliefs and practices of all the Hindu sects are yet. in their conscious realization, the very end only of the highest spiritual effort. Little has been done to present the practical application of those principals in the particular form which they assume in the various divisions, methods, and rituals of the Indian worshippers. This side of practice, though neglected, has booth intrinsic value and helps to a clearer and deeper understanding of the general principles than can be gathered from any bare theoretical statement of them. The knowledge of hymn, and legend, of worship and sadhana, will alone give that full knowledge of the Hindu spirit without which its religious and philosophical nceptions are likely to be but poorly understood. The present development of upasana (worship) and sadhana can only be learnt from the Tantra, the Mantra and Sadhana Sastra. The text guides the reader towards a greater understanding of the secrets, expalining various important and key facets, in language simple enough for a genaral reader to understand the mysteries of Tantra and clear enough for a student to provoke him into further research on the subject.

Debu Haldar is ready to grasp at anything that offers some excitement to his mundane life. One day, while at a multiplex, he finds a lost wallet.

Two days later, from a newspaper article and a business card found inside the wallet, he learns that the owner of the wallet is actually a fugitive from the law. More sinister facts emerge, and Debu gets a chance to fulfill one of his childhood ambitions – to get to the bottom of a devious crime. Only two people stand between him and his dream: a brutal psychopath with an extraordinary scheme, and a mild-mannered intellectual who is also trying to unravel the mystery before anyone else. 109690

In the Public’s Interest: Evictions Citizenship and Inequality in Contemporary Delhi
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2016; 9789386296788; Softcover; New; 
Like many cities in the global South, New Delhi has not been built by architects, engineers or planners, but by residents themselves. One form of such auto-construction is the basti—an urban settlement that houses income-poor residents. A basti marks the years of an urban life, built slowly and incrementally. It is more than a ‘slum’: it is a claim to development and citizenship.Contemporary Delhi is a city scarred by the evictions of bastis. Ironically, many of these evictions were ordered in Public Interest Litigations by the Indian Judiciary. How did a judicial innovation introduced to enable the marginalised to seek justice become an instrument of their exclusion?Drawing on an archive of court cases that resulted in evictions in Delhi from 1990 to 2007, as well as ethnographic research with basti residents and social movements resisting eviction, In the Public’s Interest shows how evictions have been fundamental to the way urban space is structured and produced. It also explores what they can tell us about the contemporary Indian city. Students and scholars of sociology, urban studies, development studies and geography will find this book engaging and useful. Printed Pages: 304. 111477

In the Public’s Interest: Evictions, Citizenship and Inequality in Contemporary Delhi
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8125062327; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Like many cities in the global South, New Delhi has not been built by architects, engineers or planners, but by residents themselves. One form of such auto-construction is the basti—an urban settlement that houses income-poor residents. A basti marks years of an urban life, built slowly and incrementally. It is more than a ‘slum’—it is a claim to development and citizenship. In the moment of the basti’s eviction, this claim is erased, signifying a closure for the political, legal, social and economic negotiations that allowed a vulnerable citizenry to settle and survive for decades.Contemporary Delhi is a city scarred by the evictions of bastis. Ironically, many of these evictions were ordered in Public Interest Litigations by the Indian Judiciary. How did a judicial innovation introduced precisely to enable the marginalised to seek justice become an instrument of their exclusion? Drawing on an archive of court cases that resulted in evictions in Delhi from 1990 to 2007 as well as ethnographic research with basti residents and social movements resisting eviction, In the Public’s Interest shows how evictions have been fundamental to how urban space is been structured and produced, and asks what they tell us about the contemporary Indian city.Students and scholars of sociology, urban studies, development studies and geography will find this book engaging and useful.

Sacred Hindu Symbols
Abhinav Publications/Kaveri Books; New Delhi, India; 8170173973; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Hinduism is not merely a religion but a way of life. Hinduism, in its traverse of four thousand years, has accumulated many a belief and practice, which encompass the whole socio-religio-cultural life of a devout. Since the mythological past, Hinduism is studded with varied signs and symptoms, which are mystic in character and symbolic in nature, and are also sacred symbols of spiritualism as well. These symbols are the sacred rivers; mystic mantras like ‘OM’ and GAYATRI; the auspicious symbol of Swastika; the Shivalinga, Salagram Shila or sacred stone objects; Tripundra Tilaks or Urdhapundra Tilaks- the process of besmearing the body with different marks of sandal pastes; the sacred conch or Sankha and venerated trees which have medicinal value and spiritual ethos like Tulsi, Vata, Rudraksha, etc. All these are part of modern Hinduism but to many devouts and observers these symbols stand enigmatic! Thus this book attempts to explore and unearth the hidden philosophy of these signs and gauge the socio-scientific base and tries to find out the real meaning of ritualistic methodologies of these symbols, which are the great objects of veneration of the Hindus down the ages.

An Introduction to Experimental Economics
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8125060790; Softcover; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Experiments in economics involve gathering human subjects in a classroom or a computer laboratory, presenting them with a situation and making them take decisions that are monetarily incentivised. These decisions will later be analysed statistically or econometrically to yield results that confirm, but also challenge, predictions of economic theory, thereby expanding the boundaries of knowledge regarding human economic behaviour and its motives.An Introduction to Experimental Economics details the methodology, procedure and protocol to be followed while conducting experiments in economics. It draws the contours of the newly emerging discipline through the main areas where experiments are being used:· games involving strategic decisions where there are two players and the decision of one player is contingent upon how she expects the other player to behave,· public goods games designed to test the existence of the free rider problem through a voluntary contributions mechanism, and · games involving a choice between two or more lotteries that explain decision-making under conditions of uncertainty.A unique feature is the discussion on experiments designed to elicit the impact of community, caste, religion and multiplicity of culture, based on the author’s rigorous work in the field. Written in simple language, and with practical applications in mind—a chapter is devoted on how to use z-Tree, an open source software which can be used to effectively run experiments in a lab—this book will interest students and scholars of economic theory and its empirical verification.

India Indonesia Legacy of Intimate Encounters
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8192611477; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Evidences suggest that India and Indonesia were in trade relations for many millennia, starting from 3500 bce. Suvarnabhumi (Sumatra) is mentioned in Jatakas, Indian epics and Mahavamsa, though there is no sequential documentation of it. The trade relations paved the way for Bali importing Indian pottery, priests coming from India and getting absorbed into the Indonesian society and the Indian traders and priests marrying the locals and settling there, thus spreading Hinduism and Indian culture throughout Java, Bali and Sumatra. Indonesia thus got all three religions — Hinduism, Buddhism and Islam — from India.The historical and civilizational relations continued till the sixteenth century ce. The Western colonization drive of Asian countries broke this long-stood relationship. Coming to the twentieth century, Indonesia and its leaders were highly inspired by the anti-colonial views of Indian leaders like Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, Vallabhbhai Patel and Rabindranath Tagore, and India extended her moral support to the freedom struggle of Indonesia. But during the post-colonial era, the bilateral relations between both the countries were incoherent. The Look East Policy of India in the 1990s rejuvenated the relations and Indonesia became one of the greatest allies in fulfilling India’s South-East Asia Policy.The scholarly articles in this volume vividly talk about topics that foster(ed) mutual relations such as culture, religion, language, traditions, education and so on, keenly drawing the attention of policy makers, trade analysts, cultural enthusiasts, investors, among a wide range of audience.

India Indonesia Bilateral Ties: An Introspection
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8192570231; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
India and Indonesia experienced close historical and civilizational relations from the ancient times to sixteenth century ce. During the Indonesian freedom struggle, its leaders were inspired by the anti-colonial views of Indian leaders. India firmly stood for the freedom of Indonesia from the Dutch. During the post-colonial period, the bilateral relations underwent ups and downs. India’s Look East Policy of the 1990s made a phenomenal leap in both the countries’ relationship. India by leveraging its soft power, stable foreign policy, non-interference policy established trust among many South-East Asian countries and in particular Indonesia. Indonesia, being the largest country in the region, has been proved as one of the greatest allies of India. After a decade of stable governance under President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, Indonesia now has a fairly strong democratic set-up. The country made the transition after thirty-one years of dictatorship of Soeharto, under the leadership of B.J. Habibie, Abdurrhaman Wahid and Megawati Soekarnoputri. Now, when both the countries are poised to fly high after having witnessed considerable economic reforms, they need to forge stronger ties in order to further expand bilateral trade and strategic relations, being the main focus of this volume.Printed Pages: 287. 100536

The Fall and Rise of Telangana
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8125054731; Hardcover; New; New; 
Post Independence, the state of Andhra Pradesh was created by merging the Telangana region, a part of the princely state of Hyderabad, with the coastal region of Andhra and Rayalaseema—both parts of the erstwhile Madras state. With Madras, the major source of income of the state, allocated to Tamil Nadu, it was necessary to include the revenue-surplus Telangana to create a financially viable entity. However, there had always been doubts about the long-term feasibility of such an arrangement. Jawaharlal Nehru had even considered the provision of a ‘divorce’ if the ‘marriage’ between the three regions did not turn out to be mutually beneficial. Despite several agreements, laws and government orders safeguarding the interests of the people of Telangana, modern history records a sordid tale of exploitation, agitation, assurances and broken promises. The author shows how the Srikrishna Commission that was formed to look into the matter and impartially recommend a way forward ‘subverted’ the process and came forward with a predetermined solution. Today, despite violent agitation, the surplus revenue of the region continues to be disproportionately diverted to Coastal Andhra, while land around Hyderabad is quite often illegally allocated to land sharks from other regions. The author has painstakingly dissected the Telangana problem from its inception to the where a separate state seems to be inevitable. He has identified the political reasons for the behaviour of the national leaders in making promises and later reneging on them, and shows how this betrayal has affected the people of the region. In the final chapter, the author proposes a model for the trifurcation of the state and how this can be made equitable and just. Vocal and hard-hitting, this book will be valuable for students of political science and general readers interested in the movement.Printed Pages: 344. 101903

Explosion of Love
Yogi Impressions Books Pvt. Ltd.; Mumbai, India; 2015; 8188479861; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
The Ouroborus is a mythological symbol of a snake swallowing its own tail. In doing so it forms a circle that represents both the cycle and the dualities of birth and death. It thus becomes a symbol of eternal unity, showing us what we truly are – not the mortal body but the immortal Consciousness.Filled with unexpected strokes of humour, this collection of short essays emerged from the author’s interactions with a modern Sage and his teaching on Advaita, the Indian philosophy of non-duality.The teaching was a reaffirmation of Gautam’s life experiences that provided invaluable lessons on true forgiveness, hope, life and death, which is reflected in these pages. All of this comes together in one of the final essays on the 26/11 terror attack – an important lesson for the turbulent world we live in today. At the core of these writings lies the universal message, conveyed with an enlightening perspective, of true love and forgiveness – the two forces that ultimately provide the healing touch.Printed Pages: 204. 103483

Communication with God: The Daily Puja Ceremony in the Jagannatha Temple
Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts/Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2004; 817305262X; Hardcover; New; New; 
The work for the first time presents in a very detailed manner the various rites in forming the daily puja ceremony of one of the most famous and important temples of Hindus-Jagannatha Temple at Puri. The study is based on a large number of au then tic palm -leaf manuscripts discovered and collected by the author in Orissa, substantiated by his personal observation and information acquired from the temple functionaries. It is a well­ known fact that the study of Hindu temple rituals has not yet been taken up so extensively and seriously as that of the Vedic rituals. This work seeks to fill up this desirable gap and is a significant contribution to the study of the process of formation of the medieval Hinduism and its gradual development.The rite of the Hindu puja is basically a very subtle and sublime spiritual phenomenon in which the worshipper, in the course of meditation, first dissolves his mundane body to create a divine body for himself, identical in nature with that of his Deity. Thereafter visualizing the tejas of the Deity in his heart through concentrated meditation upon His/Her form, he transfers this divine effulgence into the image for the time being in order to achieve a subject-object relationship with the Deity, who is identical with the self, and starts communicating with his God from the same elevated plane.Printed Pages: 532. 101669

History of Anthropological Thought

THE THOUGHT of any subject is the mother of all concepts. Its history deals with theories developed and contributions made by various schools of anthropological thinkers, who belong to various . Although the study of man, his society and culture has been interesting area of research right from the period of Greek travelers, but establishment of evolution-are theory of culture during 19th Century A.D. is regarded as theoretical beginning of the subject of anthropology. As soon as evolutionary school was established many schools of anthropological thought came into existence which began to claim an anti-evolutionary approach. These schools were diffusional, functional structural, cultural and personality, and civilizational and complex culture study. Around middle of 20th century, a movement arose among anthropologists to re-shape anthropological theories. As a result of which neo-anthropological school came into existence under every conceptual frame work, Thus, the book attempts to describe the basic postulates, methodology, general contributions merits and criticism of each school of anthropological theories. Within each school critical contribution of each sub-school and individual thinkers has been presented systematically. Field-work tradition in anthropology and contribution of eminent Indian anthropologists have also been explained with a view to fulfil the need of teachers, students and researchers. Surveying a huge amount of literature, attempts have been made to reproduce the subject-matter in an integrated manner so that readers problem of going through different books for the same paper could be solved.

10780 Gayacharan Tripathi
Vaidik Devata: Udbhav evam Vikas
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8124605912; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 19 x 25 Cm 
There have been quite a few attempts to delineate the nature and character of Vedic Deities on the basis of Vedic Samhitas by European scholars like Macdonell, Hillebrandt, Oldenberg, Luders and, of late, by Oberlies, etc. However, none of these scholars has made attempt to trace the subsequent development of their character and personalities through the later Vedic texts, epics and the Puranas, etc., whereas it goes without saying that the concept of Hindu gods today in the minds of the people is exactly the one which we encounter in the Puranas and in the folk literature. This obviously means that the personalities of the Vedic Deities did not freeze with the end of Vedic literature but continued to develop in later period as well through the subsequent literarary activities. Taking rather vague clues from the Vedic texts, the authors or narrators of the Puranas, augmented and supported by folk beliefs, further expanded, modified and developed the personalities of these gods so that, for the most part, the intangible character of these gods acquired a concrete shape and form, a body of flesh and blood, so to say. The book tries to trace the historical development of the personalities of Vedic Deities through the subsequent Vedic literature, as well as the epics and the Puranas till they acquire the shape and form in which they are conceived and venerated today.Printed Pages: 698. 100456

10781 Gayacharan Tripathi
Shri Suparanadhyayah: With Padapatha and a Hitherto Unknown Commentary By Jayasvamin (A Metrical Play of the Late Vedic Age)
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2016; 9789380829371; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 17 x 26 Cm 
The experiences and knowledge from our past are recorded in manuscripts which have been handed down to us over several thousand years. The Government of India, through the Department of Culture, took note of the importance of this vast tangible heritage and, in order to preserve and conserve as well as to make access to this wealth easy, established the National Mission for Manuscripts (NMM). In order to disseminate the knowledge content of manuscripts, the Mission has taken up several programmes such as lectures, seminars and workshops. The Mission has published the proceedings of the above-said programmes under the following series: “Samrakshika” (on conservation), “Tattvabodha” (comprising lectures based on manuscripts delivered by eminent scholars), “Samikshika” (research-oriented papers presented in the seminars), and “Kritibodha” (transcribed and edited texts prepared at advanced level manuscriptology workshops conducted by NMM.NMM has taken up a project for publishing rare and unpublished manuscripts in three formats — (a) Facsimile, (b) Critical edition with annotation and (c) Critical edition with translation. This series has been named as “Prakashika”. Suparnadhyaya critically edited by Prof. G.C. Tripathi comes under this Prakashika series.Suparnadhyaya, Suparnadhyanam or simply Sauparnam is a later Vedic text of Indian dramatic tradition, lesser known to scholars primarily due to the fact that it was never translated into English language. This play, normally enacted during the festival of Indradhvaja, has a plot which is woven around the story of the incredible dexterity and strength of Garuda and his wondrous deed of bringing soma (amrita) from Indra’s heaven for the sake of Snakes, after defeating Indra’s guards and ridiculing his divine weapon. This story finds a mention even in Mahabharata. This short play is in a metrical form, interspersed with occasional prose-pieces.This text has come down to us in an incorrect form due to faulty manuscript tradition. In this volume, the author has tried to restore the text with the help of higher textual criticism and has given due justification for his amendments. It presents the text with English and Hindi translations for the benefit of those readers who are not conversant with Sanskrit. Printed Pages: 336 with 11 colour photographs. 110935

The Art of Interpreting Horoscopes
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8120835204; Second Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 
India has always been an astrological society but at some point of time in the early part of the 20th century, the educated began to develop a certain distaste for this ancient science, largely because of the educational system in the country which distanced itself from the traditional branches of learning under a mistaken notion that by doing so, it was proving its rational credentials. However astrology being as good a science as any other of the modern ones, has stood the test of time and in recent years has made a resurgent reappearance as a result of my revered father, Father of Modern Astrology, the Late Dr. B. V. Raman's relentless efforts to propagate it as an academic subject. Astrology has now captured the interest of large segments of the educated public. The wave of resurgence has swept away this pseudo-rationalist resistance bringing with it the realization of the invaluable role astrology can play in helping cope with the ills of modern society. There has been some kind of snowballing effect in educated circles, both in our own country as well as in the west, primarily the United States of America, in their eagerness to retrieve, revive and restore Jyotish to its pristine glory. The ancient classical works on the subject are now being eagerly lapped up but the problem begins because of the times when the astrological rules were first formulated being so different from our own. The author has made effort to adapt and apply these rules in the form of dicta, Yogas and combinations to contemporary life in the process seeking to bridge the gap between the ancient rules and their applicational value to the present.Printed Pages: 336. 102620

10793 Gayatri Devi Vasudev
Astrology and Pseudo Scientific Criticism
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2001; Softcover; New; 
There have been strong attacks against Astrology and objections to it being described as Science in some sections of the Scientific fraternity following the University Grants Commission's February 2001 proposal to introduce astrology in the Universities. The Criticism has done Little to hurt astrology and its case but has exposed the bias and ignorance behind these attacks. Most of the times, the arguments against astrology appear to be based on, not what astrology is but what its critics assume it to be. Such assumption is invariably based on bias, prejudice, misinformation and of course, ignorance. In this book, the author exposes the hollowness and invalidity of such attacks. It is an unfortunate reflection on the degree of Prejudice against astrology that even crude lies have been made a part of the anti-astrology campaign. She has brought to light certain unpalatable and unpleasant facts concerning such concoctions.Printed Pages: 85. 102624
