Lauri Ingman suomalaisen uskontokasvatuksen ja koulun kehittäjänä
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 1998; 9525031128; New; 
Lauri Ingman (1868–1934) toimi uskonnonopettajana, Helsingin yliopiston käytännöllisen teologian assistenttina ja professorina sekä Suomen kirkon arkkipiispana. Hän oli myös pappispoliitikko, joka kohosi urallaan eduskunnan puhemieheksi, pääministeriksi ja moninkertaiseksi opetusministeriksi. Hannu Välimäki tarkastelee kasvatustieteellisessä väitöskirjassaan Ingmanin toimintaa suomalaisen uskontokasvatuksen ja koulun kehittäjänä. Lauri Ingmanin tavoitteena oli kirkollisen uskontokasvatuksen kokoaminen pedagogisesti tasokkaaksi kokonaisuudeksi varsinkin pyhäkoulua ja kirkollista kiertokoulua kehittämällä. Yhtä tärkeänä hän piti koulun uskonnonopetuksen aseman turvaamista ja sen säilyttämistä tunnustuksellisena. Ingman uudisti uskonnonopetusta myös raamatunhistorian oppikirjoillaan ja opetusoppaillaan.

Literature and Nationalist Ideology: Writing Histories of Modern Indian Languages
Social Science Press and Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8187358335; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
‘This volume takes on…big questions, making a sophisticated and significant contribution to the great tradition of assessing the emergence of literary modernity in South Asia.’ - Vasudha Dalmia, Professor of Hindi and Chair of the Department of South and Southeast Asian Studies, University of California Writing histories of literature means making selections, passing value judgments, and incorporating or rejecting foregoing traditions. The book argues that in many parts of India, literary histories play an important role in creating a cultural ethos. They are closely linked with nationalism in general and various regional ‘sub-nationalisms’ in particular. Literary historiography helps to establish a national literature in a way that is not always unproblematic: systematic representation of literary works and authors is as much part of this story as conscious omissions or political spins in the making of a literary heritage.The contributors to this volume look at a great variety of aspects of the historiography of modern regional languages of India. The approach excludes classical languages of India from this approach, except Tamil which is considered a modern and a classical language at the same time. It includes the late yet undoubtedly successful arrival of English in the nation’s literary corpus. Printed Pages: 400. 033764

Vedic Studies: Language, Texts, Culture and Philosophy ()Proceedings of the 15th World Sanskrit Conference, General Editor Radhavallabh Tripathi), (Vol. I: Veda Section)
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8124607273; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The Vedas hold a position of prominence, both as the oldest documents of Sanskrit and as the most venerable texts of Hinduism. This volume contains scholarly papers from the Veda Sessions of the 15th World Sanskrit Conference, touching a broad spectrum of the Vedic tradition and focusing on three major aspects of that tradition: language and linguistics; textual criticism and text edition; and culture, philosophy, mythology. Language and linguistics papers range from syntax and semantics (Hock, Küummel) to morphology (Tucker), onomastics (Pinault) and rhetorical structure (Klein). Remarkably, three of the articles in the second part deal with the tradition of Atharvaveda (Bahulkar, Kulkarni, and Rotaru and Sumant); the remaining two focus on Rigveda (Khare and Köhler). Two papers in the last part deal with matters of Vedic philosophy (Benedetti and Vedi), one is devoted to mythology and ritual (Gadgil), and one addresses ritual and material culture (Nishimura).Printed Pages: 252. 100393

The Coins of the Sikhs
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8121511321; Second Revised and Augmented Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 23 Cms x 29 Cms 
The Sikh coinage started in the second half of the eighteenth century, reached its apogee during the rule of Maharaja Ranjit Singh and ended abruptly with the annexation of the Panjab by the British in 1849. Although the Sikhs struck coins in about 20 mints, there coinage remained quite uniform until the end. Their rupees bear religious legends and never mention their issue, but Amritsar, their main economic and religious center, produced the most complex system of mintmarks in modern India. Early observers were often baffled by the first major non-Mughal coinage of northern India and their descriptions of Sikh coins are commonly full of errors, errors that have all too often survived until today. In a first part the present book gives a short historical introduction and a general survey of the Sikh coinage. The second part consists of an illustrated catalogue of all the actually known Sikh coin types arranged by mints. Several appendices offer a brief survey of Sikh tokens and medals and a few important numismatic texts in extenso. This book is not only intended as a useful tool for coin collectors, but also as a source material for historians and students of the economy of the Sikh empire.

The Politics of the Pharmaceutical Industry and Access to Medicines: World Pharmacy and India
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8187358661; Hardcover; New; New; 
The pharmaceutical industry presents one of India’s most successful stories of economic expansion and improvements in public health. Indian firms have made access to quality medicines possible and affordable in many developing countries. Indian pharmaceuticals are also exported on a large scale to the United States and other highly regulated markets. A wave of mergers, acquisitions and tie-ups point to growing integration between Indian firms and global pharma multinationals. The Politics of the Pharmaceutical Industry and Access to Medicines: World Pharmacy and India examines this important industry from different economic, social and political perspectives. Topics covered include the implications of TRIPS-compliant intellectual property rights, the role of flexibilities under TRIPS, the market regulation system, the role of Indian firms in exporting HIV/AIDS medications to Africa, the issue of free trade agreements, the power and reach of foreign pharmaceutical multinationals in India’s domestic market, and the sustainability of India as a major generics supplier.Printed Pages: 368. 101995

The Types of International Folktales: A Classification and Bibliography (Animal Tales, Tales of Magic, Religious Tales, and Realistic Tales, with an Introduction), Part I (Folklore Fellows Communications 284)
Suomalainen Tiedeakatemia (Academia Scientiarum Fennica)/Bookstore Tiedekirja; Helsinki, Finland; 9514110544; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Types of International Folktales (ATU) based on the system of Aarne/Thompson constitutes a fundamentally new edition with extensive additions and innovations. The descriptions of the tale types have been completely rewritten and made more precise. The essential research cited for each type includes extensive documentation of its international distribution as well as monographic works or articles on that type. More than two hundred and fifty new types have been added. Types with very limited distribution have been omitted. A detailed subject index includes the most important subjects, actions, and other motifs, including actors and settings. The Types of International Folktales is a bibliographic tool that guides its users through the corpus of published traditional narratives of different ethnic groups and time periods, with a description of each type followed by references to catalogs, texts, and published research. Each “tale type” in all the traditional genres (fables, animal tales, religious legends, ordinary folktales, jests, and cumulative tales) must be understood to be flexible. It is not a constant unit of measure or a way to refer to lifeless material from the past. Instead it is adaptable, and can be integrated into new thematic compositions and media. The background for this model of narrative alteration and innovation is evident in a change of paradigm that took place in recent decades in historical-comparative folktale research, a change that has necessarily affected the nature of this new catalog. The catalog permits international tale types to be located quickly, thus providing a historical-comparative orientation toward folktale research for scholars in all disciplines that touch on popular narrative traditions.

The essential research cited for each type includes extensive documentation of its international distribution as well as monographic works or articles on that type. More than two hundred and fifty new types have been added. Types with very limited distribution have been omitted. A detailed subject index includes the most important subjects, actions, and other motifs, including actors and settings. The Types of International Folktales is a bibliographic tool that guides its users through the corpus of published traditional narratives of different ethnic groups and time periods, with a description of each type followed by references to catalogs, texts, and published research. Each “tale type” in all the traditional genres (fables, animal tales, religious legends, ordinary folktales, jests, and cumulative tales) must be understood to be flexible. It is not a constant unit of measure or a way to refer to lifeless material from the past. Instead it is adaptable, and can be integrated into new thematic compositions and media. The background for this model of narrative alteration and innovation is evident in a change of paradigm that took place in recent decades in historical-comparative folktale research, a change that has necessarily affected the nature of this new catalog. The catalog permits international tale types to be located quickly, thus providing a historical-comparative orientation toward folktale research for scholars in all disciplines that touch on popular narrative traditions.

The Adivasi Will Not Dance: Stories
Speaking Tiger Publishing Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789385288647; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
‘We are like toys—someone presses our “ON” button, or turns a key in our backsides, and we Santhals start beating rhythms on our tamak and tumdak, or blowing tunes on our tiriyo while someone snatches away our very dancing grounds. Tell me, am I wrong?’ In this collection of stories, set in the fecund, mineral-rich hinterland and the ever-expanding, squalid towns of Jharkhand, Hansda Sowvendra Shekhar breathes life into a set of characters who are as robustly flesh and blood as the soil from which they spring, where they live, and into which they must sometimes bleed. Troupe-master Mangal Murmu refuses to perform for the President of India and is beaten down; Suren and Gita, a love-blind couple, wait with quiet desperation outside a neonatal ward, hoping—for different reasons—that their blue baby will turn pink; Panmuni and Biram Soren move to Vadodara in the autumn of their lives, only to find that they must stop eating meat to be accepted as citizens; Baso-jhi is the life of the village of Sarjomdih but, when people begin to die for no apparent reason, a ghastly accusation from her past comes back to haunt her; and Talamai Kisku of the Santhal Pargana, migrating to West Bengal in search of work, must sleep with a policeman for fifty rupees and two cold bread pakoras. The Adivasi Will Not Dance is a mature, passionate, intensely political book of stories, made up of the very stuff of life. It establishes Hansda Sowvendra Shekhar as one of our most important ontemporary writers.Printed Pages: 256. 103376

Historians and Historiography During The Reign of Akbar
Aakar Books; New Delhi, India; 2017; 9789350025208; Softcover; New; 
This book, written as doctoral dissertation in the 1960s, was somewhat of a departure from the then prevalent research themes of Mughal history: its revenue system, composition of the nobility, level of peasan'ts exploitation and so forth. In examining the primary sources of Mughal history, the court chronicles, it sought to go beyong the sterile positivist true vs false dichotomy instead it sought to unearth and evaluate the unstated assumptions underlying the works of history of the period first labeled "Muslim" by James Mill in 1817-18 and later on "Medieval" in the twentieth century. In a slim though influential work, Historians of Medieval India published in 1960, Peter Hardy had postulated that history was for them a branch of Islamic theology, where historical events manifested Divine will. This book arrived at a contrary conclusion: all historians, irrespective of their grave differences, treated historical events as manifestation of human, especially the ruler's will. In some ways we owe the notion of historical explanation in terms of personal characterstics of rulers - strong vs weak or liberal vs dogmatic - to this essential feature of our medieval sources. 117877

Decentralization and Empowerment for Rural Development
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789382264781; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book examines the empowerment of citizens in general and of the poor and marginalized groups in particular by the process of decentralization. It discusses the precise role of Panchayat and local governance on the quantity and quality of services. Some of the findings include – long term impacts of political reservation for women positive relationship between local revenue generation and quality of governance significant welfare gains due to parochial politics and even bribes. The mechanisms through which improvements in governance are achieved include Gram Sabha meetings with specific agenda related to services participation of households in such meetings and the impact of specific institutions such as VECs VWUSCs and the Pani Panchayats. The authors are able to prove that a positive relationship exists between the quality of services and increasing local revenues. The large number of tied grants that Panchayats receive has long been criticized as leading to a general constriction of choices left with the Panchayats to be able to effectively allocate expenditures. Most importantly the book quantifies the impact of Panchayats in terms of the ability of households to reduce vulnerability and transit out of poverty.Printed Pages: 384. 101415

They identify existing lapses in resettlement management and procedures and formulate useful policy responses.

History of the Sikhs: Vol. III: Sikh Domination of the Mughal Empire
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2017; 8121502136; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
History of the Sikhs is planned as a six volume survey aiming to present a comprehensive view of the rise, growth and development of Sikh thought and action in every direction. This volume Sikh Domination of the Mughal Empire 1764-1803 is third in the series. The whole series is based on original contemporary sources in Persian, Marathi, Gurumukhi, Urdu, Hindi and English known to exist in India and abroad. The dominating theme of the third volume is how and why the Sikhs missed numerous opportunities of establishing a Sikh State over the whole of Northern India. Najib-ud-daulah Rohilla, the first dictator of Delhi, and the vanquisher of Marathas and the Jats, publicly confessed having failed to subdue the Sikhs. Once he paid them a blackmail of eleven lakhs of rupees. His son and successor saved himself by embracing Sikhism. His widow and son lived in the Panjab on a Jagir granted by Jassa Singh Ramgarhia in his safe custody for seventeen years. The Mughal Emperor Shah Alam II (1759-1806) was prepared to place himself and his empire under Sikh protection. Najaf Khan, his prime minister, granted sovereign rights to the Sikhs. Mahadji Sindhia, the second dictator of the Mughal Empire, always maintained peace with them inspite of their frequent provocations. Lord Cornwallis, the British Governor-General in vain cajoled and coaxed them in order to secure the liberty from Sikh captivity of Lieutenant-Colonel Robert Stuart who was set free after ten months on receiving a ransom. The Jat rajas of Bharatpur, Rajput princes, Nawabs of Oudh, and the hill rajas, all troubled before them. As the Sikhs had risen to power and predominance from extreme poverty and penury, their imagination could not go outside their homeland acquisition of gold from the rich, rakhi from Zamindars and Kambh from artisans.

History of the Sikhs: Vol. V: The Sikh Lion of Lahore (Maharaja Ranjit Singh, 1799-1839)
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2007; 8121505151; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
History of the Sikhs is a five volume survey aiming to present a comprehensive view of the rise, growth and development of Sikh thought and action in every direction. The present volume-The Sikh Lion of Lahore, 1799-1839-deals with Ranjit Singh. Ranjit Singh rose from the status of a petty chieftain to become the king of an empire extending from Gilgit and Tibet to the deserts of Sindh and from the Khyber Pass to the Satluj. He persuaded the turbulent Sikhs and Muslims to the Punjab to become the willing instruments of an expansionist policy which brought the Kashmiris and the Pathans of North-West Frontier and Baluchis of Multan province under his subjugation. His success was undoubtedly due to his ability to arouse the nascent sense of nationalism amongst his people and make them conscious that more important than their religion was the fact of their becoming a united people leading a harmonious life. The book consists of six parts, Part One deals with the campaigns and conquests of Maharaja Ranjit Singh. Part Two depicts his relation with neighbours and others. Part Three deals with his attitude towards secularism. Part Four describes Ranjit Singh's interest in establishing a cosmopolitan society in the Punjab and introducing an element of merriment in their humdrum life. Part Five deals with economic prosperity with special reference to the development of agriculture and growth of industry, trade and commerce. Part Six gives vivid portrait of the Sikh Lion of Lahore. Professor Gupta has based his work on Persian, Urdu, Gurmukhi, and English sources. He has drawn freely on the diaries and accounts of European travellers like Moorcroft, Sir Alexander Burnes, Masson, Fane, Emily Eden, etc. to create a memorable picture of the peasantry and brilliance of the Sikh kingdom at the height of its power and a lively portrait of one of the most colourful characters in the history of India.

History of the Sikhs: Vol. IV: The Sikh Commonwealth or Rise and Fall of the Misls
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2007; 8121501652; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
History of the Sikhs is a five volume series which deals with all aspects-religious, philosophical, political, military, social, economic and cultural, and the contribution of Sikhism to world civilization, in particular to human rights, principles of liberty, equality and fraternity, and to the creed of democracy and secularism. The aim is to present a comprehensive view of the rise, growth and development of Sikh thought and action almost in every direction. The whole series is based on original contemporary sources in English, Gurmukhi, Marathi, Persian and Urdu known to exist in India and abroad. This fourth volume deals with the rise and fall of Sikh misls. In Sikh history this term was first used by Guru Gobind Singh in the battle Bhangani in 1688, when he organised his forces into eleven misls. Banda Bahadur adopted the same organisation of eleven divisions in the battle of Sarhind in May 1710. In 1734 Nawab Kapur Singh divided the Khalsa into Budha Dal and Taruna Dal, both comprising eleven groups. This division was permanently adopted at the formation of Dal Khalsa in 1748. The Phulkian states were not a Sikh misl. They developed as petty kingdoms from the beginning. They owed allegiance to the Mughals and Durranis, the enemies of their faith. They purchased titles from them. The Sikh misls never agreed to serve under Muslim masters. Lahna Singh Bhangi flatly rejected to become Ahmad Shah Durrani's viceroy of Panjab. Baghel Singh Karorasinghia controlled Delhi for nine months as an independent chief. He thrice turned down Emperor Shah Alam's firman appointing him governor of the Upper Ganga Doab. The Sikh misls dominated the whole country from river Indus to the Ganga, and from punch in Kashmir to the borders of Sind and Baluchistan. The Mughal Emperor, his prime ministers, Rohillas, Jats, Rajputs, Marathas, the British, hill rajas, and Durrani monarchs, all were terribly afraid of Sikh misls in spite of their complete disunity and mutual warfare. The misls in the western region were unceremoniously finished by Maharaja Ranjit Singh, and by the British Government in the eastern region. Printed Pages: 580 with 4 maps. 017518

History of the Sikhs: Vol. II: Evolution of Sikh Confederacies
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8121502489; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
History of the Sikhs planned as a five-volume survey aiming to present a comprehensive view of the rise, growth and development of Sikh thought and action in every direction. This volume Evolution of Sikh Confederacies 1708-69, is second in the series. The whole series is based on original contemporary sources in Persian, Marathi, Gurumukhi, Urdu, Hindi and English known to exist in India and abroad. The dominating theme of the second volume is the Mughal-Sikh and Sikh-Afghan contest for the lordship of the Punjab. The first period of the struggle between the Mughal Emperors and the Sikhs under Banda Bahadur lasted from 1709 to 1716, when Banda was executed. The second period of conflict was from 1716 to 1753 between the Sikhs and five Mughal viceroys of the Punjab-Abdus Samad Khan, his son Zakariya Khan, his sons Yahya Khan and Shahnawaz Khan and their cousin Muin-ul-Mulk, popularly called Mir Mannu. The third period extended from 1754 to 1768 in the strife against Ahmad Shah Durrani who had annexed the Punjab in 1752. He inflicted the heaviest blows on the Sikhs like the one struck on the Marathas at Panipat in 1761. Having sacrificed about two lakhs of young men in the whole struggle the Sikhs came out victorious. The two chapters at the end give an account of Mughlani Begam and Adina Beg Khan, the last Muslim viceroys of the Punjab. Printed Pages: 401 with 2 maps and 2 illustrations. 014782

History of the Sikhs: Vol. I: The Sikh Gurus 1469-1708
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8121502764; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
History of the Sikhs is a five volume series dealing with all aspects-religious, philosophical, political, military, social, economic and cultural, and the contribution of Sikhism to world civilization, in particular to human rights, principles of liberty, equality and fraternity, and to the creed of democracy and secularism. The aim is to present a comprehensive view of the rise, growth and development of Sikh thought and action almost in every direction. The entire series is based on original contemporary sources in English, Gurmukhi, Marathi, Persian and Urdu known to exist in India and abroad. This first volume gives the story of Ten Masters who provided leadership to the downtrodden people of the Punjab both in religious and political fields for about two centuries. Their aim was to remove the bitterness that had persisted between the rulers and their subjects for the past five hundred years. They wished to create a new society based upon mutual brotherhood, and freedom of thought, expression and action. It was under the circumstances almost an impossible task. But there is nothing like a dream to create the future. Utopia today, flesh and blood tomorrow. Man's onward march requires that the heights around him should be ablaze with noble and glorious deeds of valour and self-sacrifice to serve as guiding lights. Such evolutionary and revolutionary models were furnished by Guru Arjan, Guru Tegh Bahadur, Guru Gobind Singh, and his four sons-Ajit Singh (18 years), Jujhar Singh (14 years), Zorawar Singh (8 years), and Fatah Singh (5 years)-as well as by their numerous disciples like Bhais Mati Das, Sati Das and Dayal Das. The main feature of this book are: A critical appraisement of Guru Nanak's Janam Sakhis, justification for celebrating Guru Nanak's birthday in November instead of in April, Guru Nanak's compositions, Mardana's death at Baghdad, how Amritsar developed into a Sikh centre, Guru Arjan's martyrdom, why Guru Hargobind took to militarism, Guru Har Rae's residence at Nahan, Hukam Namas of Guru Tegh Bahadur, Guru Gobind Singh's formula of five into five, his literary works and Hukam Namas, Emperor Bahadur Shah's pious fraud, eminent personalities and instructions, impact of Gurus'; teachings on Indian society, and why Jats became followers of Khatri Gurus.
