13101 Ian Angus
Facing the Anthropocene: Fossil Capitalism and the Crisis of the Earth System
Aakar Books; New Delhi, India; 2017; 9789350024997; Softcover; New; 
Science tells us that a new and dangerous stage in planetary evolution has begun - the Anthropocene, a time of rising temperatures, extreme weather, rising oceans, and mass species extinctions. Humanity faces not just more pollution or warmer weather, but a crisis of the Earth System. If business as usual continues, this country will be marked by rapid deterioration of our physical, social, and economic environment. Large parts of Earth will become uninhabitable, and civilization itself will be threatened. Facing the Anthropocene shows what has caused this planetary emergency and what we must do to meet the challenge. Bridging the gap between Earth System science and ecological Marxism, Ian Angus examines not only the latest scientific findings about the physcial causes and consequences of the Anthropocene transition, but also the social and economic trends that underlie the crisis. Cogent and compellingly written, Facing the Anthropocene offers a unique synthesis of natural and social science that illustrates how capitalism's inexorable drive for growth, powered by the rapid burning of fossil fuels that took millions of years to form, has driven our world to the brink of disaster. Survival in the Anthropocene, Angus argues, requires radical social change, replacing fossil capitalism with a new, ecosocialist civilization. 117890

How to Be A Time Master: Control Your Time...Control Your Life
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8126527749; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
Becoming a Time Lord is not just about gaining time in order to get more done; it is also about being able to slow down to do the things that you want to do in the way that you want to do them. Essentially it is about self-mastery. If you can master time -- you can be a Time Lord! Time traps work in two ways: they trap you into losing time; or they result in personal overload.Printed Pages: 216. 104683

13110 Ian Harris
Cambodian Buddhism: History and Practice
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8121512174; First Indian Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
The study of Cambodian religion has long been hampered by a lack of easily accessible scholarship. This impressive new work by Ian Harris thus fills a major gap and offers English-language scholars a booklength, up-to-date treatment of the religious aspects of Cambodian culture. Beginning with a coherent history of the presence of religion in the country from its inception to the present day, the book goes on to furnish insights into the distinctive nature of Cambodia's important yet overlooked manifestation of Theravada Buddhist tradition and to show how it reestablished itself following almost total annihilation during the Pol Pot period. Historical sections cover the dominant role of tantric Mahayana concepts and rituals under the last great king of Angkor, Jayavarman VII (1181–c. 1220); the rise of Theravada traditions after the collapse of the Angkorian civilization; the impact of foreign influences on the development of the nineteenth-century monastic order; and politicized Buddhism and the Buddhist contribution to an emerging sense of Khmer nationhood. The Buddhism practiced in Cambodia has much in common with parallel traditions in Thailand and Sri Lanka, yet there are also significant differences. The book concentrates on these and illustrates how a distinctly Cambodian Theravada developed by accommodating itself to premodern Khmer modes of thought. Following the overthrow of Prince Sihanouk in 1970, Cambodia slid rapidly into disorder and violence. Later chapters chart the elimination of institutional Buddhism under the Khmer Rouge and its gradual reemergence after Pol Pot, the restoration of the monastic order's prerevolutionary institutional forms, and the emergence of contemporary Buddhist groupings.

Engines of Change: The Railroads That Made India
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8125045627; Softcover; New; 
The railway, handmaiden of British colonial rule in India and midwife of South Asian nationalisms, was at the infrastructural core of the making of modern India. Few dimensions of India and Indian life—political, economic, cultural, spatial—escaped the shaping influences of the engines of change.This book provides the non-specialist with an introduction to the history of India’s railways, and to the many ways the railways shaped the making of modern India. Engines of Change is a brief, readable, contextualized introduction to India’s railway past. The railway history of India is placed in a broad setting to illustrate the many ways in which the railways made India, and the ways in which wider forces, notably colonialism, shaped the railways India got.Operating railways in India date from 1853 and by 1900 the network of lines in India was the world’s fourth longest. India provided the pre-eminent example of railway development in Asia and Africa. Today, the Indian rail system continues to rank among the world’s largest.Printed Pages: 236. 101941

Syntactic Change: A Minimalist Approach to Grammaticalization
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2003; 0521790565; First Edition; Paperback; New; 228 x 152 Mm 
The phenomenon of grammaticalization - the historical process whereby new grammatical material is created - has attracted a great deal of attention within linguistics in recent years. However, until now no attempt has been made to provide a general account of this phenomenon in terms of a formal theory of syntax. The aim of this new and original book is to do precisely that. Using Chomsky’s Minimalist Program for linguistic theory, Roberts and Roussou show how this approach gives rise to a number of important conceptual and theoretical issues concerning the nature of functional categories and the form of parameters, as well as the relation of both of these to language change. Drawing on examples from a wide range of languages, they construct a general account of grammaticalization with implications for linguistic theory and language acquisition. • First formal treatment of grammaticalisation • First book-length study of diachronic syntax using minimalism • Relates language to linguistic theory and language acquisition Contents Introduction; 1. Parameters, functional heads and language change; 2. T-elements; 3. C-elements; 4. D-elements; 5. Theoretical consequences. Printed Pages: 288 with 5 line diagrams. 012769

13136 Ibn Hasan
The Central Structure of the Mughal Empire and Its Practical Working Up to the Year 1657 with a Foreword By Sir E. Denison Ross
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1980; 8121502292; Second Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 14 Cms x 23 Cms 
The Central Structure of the Mughal Empire is the most complete work describing the organization of the administrative machinery of the central structure of the Mughal government under Akbar and his two immediate successors, Jahangir and Shah Jahan. It covers the period between the year 1560, when Akbar began to rule and the year 1657 when Shah Jahan ceased to rule. As has been rightly pointed out by Sir Dension Ross in his Foreword to the volume, Ibn Hasan's work 'must always for a companion volume to the Ain-i-Akbari, and it will be studied by all serious students of Mughal history.' The assessment of Sir Dension Ross is not an exaggeration since the book covers the whole ground in a manner never before attempted and the author has based the work entirely on original sources both in the MS form or the printed ones. These sources include the chronicles of the period, contemporary Persian works and manuscripts on the various aspects of administration of the Mughal empire, collections of letters and correspondence, biographies and works on political theory by Muslim jurists and other writers besides the European travellers' records and modern works. Some of the original sources have been utilized for the first time in the present work; for instance Chahar Chaman by Chandra Bhan Brahman, a contemporary writer during Shah Jahan's reign, which ranks second only to Akbar Nama from the point of view of its utility for the practical knowledge of the administration of Shah Jahan's reign, has been taken into account for the first time in the present book. The book is divided into three parts; the first dealing with the king and his position in the state and the transaction of the state business by him. The second part deals with the reorganization of the vizarat under Akbar and besides describing the powers and functions of the ministers as heads of departments also includes the description and analysis of the internal working of each department substantiating the analysis by the historical facts of the period. The third part deals with the judicial system of the empire while the fourth and the last chapter summarizes the conclusions. Underlying Ibn Hasan's analysis is the thesis that Akbar's policy was derived from the experience of the past and he not only devised a system which contributed to the prosperity of his subjects-both the Hindus and the Muslims alike-but also solved the problem of the vizarat and the nobility thereby resulting in the continuation of the policy under his successors Jahangir and Shah Jahan.

The Eternal Spring: Sarchashma-e-abadi
Mapin Publishing; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8188204897; Hardcover; New; New; 
Urdu poetry is a universe of lustrous pictures that presents in words of varying hue, a delicacy of thought, and depth of meaning. Every word, every simile and metaphor bears within itself a whole world of meaning, and thus is the virtue of a great language that represents a celebrated civilisation. This is the kind of poetry that can be rendered easily into English without hurting its poetic quality because it is free of the unnecessary ornamentation common to all Eastern poetry. Like most Indians of the current age, Idrak Bhatty too has been nurtured in both Eastern and Western cultures. The accent of these poems has its own distinctive identity; their rhythm and idiom reflecting contemporary awareness. The audio CD includes a selection of poignant ghazals recited by Tom Alter, Uday Chandra and Chandar Khanna. Printed Pages: 300 with CD. 112009

Development refers to “a process through which the potentialities of an object or organism are released, until it reaches its natural, complete, full-fledged form.” India as a nation took a complete U- turn in the year 1991 when it jettisoned the path of socialistic pattern of controlled and guided economy to usher in liberalized and market guided globalized economic system to march on to the west-style open market economy. Since then, two decades have passed; the experience of last two decades of the reform has not boarded well for the Indian economy. The onslaught of western mode of economic growth has been so exhaustive, forceful and complete that the Indian nation finds itself in a quagmire of contrast, contradiction and dilemma. 110889

13149 Iftikhar Dadi
Modernism and the Art of Muslim South Asia
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8121512409; First Indian Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
The pioneering work traces the emergence of the modern and contemporary art of Muslim South Asia in relation to transnational modernism and in light of the region's intellectual, cultural, and political developments. Art historian Iftikhar Dadi here illuminates the art and writings of major artists ranging from the late colonial period to the era of independence and beyond, revealing the complex richness of aesthetic developments in twentieth-century Muslim South Asia. Dadi demonstrates how a wave of artists associated with Pakistan-men and women, many of whom moved among several South Asian countries and England during the course of their careers-re-imagined critical aspects of their heritage and contributed to the development of transnational modernism in the postcolonial era. Dadi looks at the stunningly diverse artistic production of key artists, including Abdur Rahman Chughtai, Zainul Abedin, Shakir Ali, Zubeida Agha, Sadequain, Rasheed Araeen, and Naiza Khan. Dadi shows how, beginning in the 1920s, these artists addressed the challenges of modernity by translating historical and contemporary intellectual conceptions into their work, re-working traditional approaches to the classical Islamic arts, and engaging the modernist approach toward subjective individuality in artistic expression. In the process, they dramatically reconfigured the visual arts of the region. By the 1930s, these artists had embarked on a sustained engagement with international modernism in a context of dizzying social and political change that included decolonization, the rise of mass media, and development following the national independence of India and Pakistan in 1947. Bringing new insights to such concepts as nationalism, modernism, cosmopolitanism, and tradition, Dadi underscores the powerful impact of translational ism during this period and highlights the artists' growing embrace of modernist and contemporary artistic practice in order to address the challenges of the present era.

Gospels of Deconstructed Adamic Myth
Global Vision Publishing House; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8182202655; Hardcover; New; New; 
In the present volume, author ventures into the challenging task by identifying and unveiling the ideological underpinnings operative in the construction and deconstruction of the Adamic myth in the Judeo-Christian scenario. He delves deep into the intricacies of the literary forms of myths, metaphors and Midrash involved in interpreting, legitimizing, or reinforcing later-day ethno-historical claims of a particular group of people against the prevailing amicable or inimical background. The ideological assertions of these literary forms, enforcing the consciously chosen traditional or hereditary authority, seek to overpower the currently popular, rational, legitimate or democratic authority. At this juncture, one cannot turn a blind eye to the legitimate or questionable political transactions on the ideological sites by the powers vying with each other to gain the dominant space. In exposing these ideological interplays, the author deploys the tools from the world of the biblical, mythological, theological, literary, historical, anthropological, linguistic, and hermeneutical disciplines.

13151 Ignatius Jesudasan
Genesis Myth of Manifold Meanings
Global Vision Publishing House; New Delhi, India; 2008; 818220268X; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book excavates the many layers of meaning hidden beneath the simple-sounding biblical myth of Adam and Eve. It critically scrutinizes the myth from the points of view of academic disciplines like history, literature, cultural anthropology, cognitive psychology and sociology, religion and spirituality. Its underlying assumption is that scriptural stories ideologically sum up and reinforce the knowledge, thought and behavior structure of ancient or established cultural identities. Hence it brings to the interpretation of the myth not only the traditinal methodological tool of belief, but also the critically unconventional tool of suspicion.It does it in the expectation and the hope of inspiring scholars of all religions and cultures to look critically at their own ethnic traditions and histories and so avoid the danger that fundamentalism threatens the globe with.

Puku vastaa ihmistä alituisesti askarruttavaan peruskysymykseen, "kuka minä olen". Puku on kulttuurin tuote, ja siihen vaikuttavat yhteiskunnallis-poliittiset sekä taloudelliset muutokset. Suomalais-ugrilaisia kieliä puhuvista kansoista marilaiset, mordvalaiset ja udmurtit käyttävät vielä paikoitellen värikylläistä kansanpukua. Kirjassa selvitetään, miksi kansanpukua käytetään yhä urbanisoituvassa ja teollistuvassa maailmassa ja mitä ne kuvastavat käyttäjän kannalta ja miksi ja miten pukuja on muutettu viimeisen sadan vuoden aikana. Aineisto käsittää Suomen kansallismuseon kokoelmien lisäksi tutkimusmatkoilla vuosien 1981–1997 välisenä aikana kerättyä materiaalia. Printed Pages: 144. 117061

Traditional Martial Practices in Odisha
Shubhi Publications; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8182901359; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 23 x 29 Cm Ileana Citaristi 
The book by the celebrity danseuse Padmasree, Ileana Citaristi vividly captures the martial arts of Odisha, specially the Paik dance of a bygone era, when Paiks (derived from padatik) infantry foot soldiers of the then kalinga (the ancient name of Odisha) kept themselves in war-readliness by rigorously practicing the armed and unarmed combat styles. The book is all about such forgotten stories of valor, the skills developed with of without the swords and spears, all for the sake of protecting the motherland, the highest form of dedication and sacrifice, which is faithfully portrayed by the dancer-writer. Interwoven with the martial art fomr are the rituals, the code of ethics and the religious practices which are still being practiced in the districts of Odisha. The book will give the reader an insight into these seemingly innocuous practices but suffused with folklores and associated with historical events that speak volumes of the heroism of the hereditary foot soldiers. Meticulously researched and well documented the book provides a wealth of information and can be valuable reference material to any student of history, culture and art forms. Here is a dancer who is occidental by birth, belongs to a distant land but holds a lens to the glorious history of the oriental, through its indigenous martial art forms and thereby scripts a tale of the ordinary Paiks but extraordinary brave foot soldiers of medieval Odisha.

13170 Ilija Trojanow; Translated from the German By The Author with Ranjit Hoskote
Along the Ganga: To the Inner Shores of India
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0-1460-3165-1; First Edition; Paperback; New; 13 Cms x 20 Cms 
From icy Gaumukh, the source of one of the world’s most celebrated rivers, Ilija Trojanow began a remarkable two-month journey: down the Himalayas, past the great cities of Allahabad, Varanasi and Patna, to Gangasagar, where the river meets the sea. Travelling by inflatable boat, on foot, by bus and overcrowded trains, he moved through landscapes where the past and the future, mythic imagination and hard reality come together, and in this book he recounts for us the stories that he heard and experienced during the journey. The glacier at Gaumukh is receding, he tells us: is it due to global warming or, as the Brahmavaivarta Purana foretells, is the Ganga going underground, having taken her share of sins, to await the next golden age? Has the demon Taraka taken over the earth again, he wonders, or will the Tehri Dam really bring succour to the lives of millions? As he observes and investigates, Trojanow also offers prayers to his ancestors, meets Naga sadhus at the Kumbh Mela, witnesses death ceremonies, and talks to engineers and activists with divergent views on how best to live with the Ganga. A travel book that is an unusual mix of reportage and storytelling, Along the Ganga is a vivid portrait not only of the mighty, sacred river but also of a deeply traditional as well as a vibrantly modern India.Printed Pages: 184. 039734

Historian ja teologian välissä
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 1997; 9519217223; New; 
Elis Gulin (1893–1975) oli tämän vuosisadan suomalaisen Uuden testamentin eksegetiikan keskeisiä hahmoja. Hän toimi Helsingin yliopistossa eksegetiikan professorina 1933–45, jonka jälkeen hän siirtyi Tampereen hiippakunnan piispaksi. Osaksi Gulinin ansiosta suomalainen Uuden testamentin tutkimus otti 1930-luvulla harppauksen kriittiseen suuntaan. Ilkka Antolan tutkimus Elis Gulinista tarkastelee Gulinin tutkijaprofiilia ja kiinnittää erityistä huomiota hänelle ominaiseen lähteiden käyttöön ja teologiseen tulkintaan. Työn metodi on tutkimushistoriallinen ja eksegeettinen. n. Printed Pages: 259. 117289

Täällä on oikea Suomen kansa teoksessa selvitetään herännäisyyden julkisuuskuvan muotoutumista ja muuttumista poliittisen modernisoitumisen murrosvaiheessa. Elpyvän herännäisyyden johtomiehet, ennen muita Wilhelm Malmberg (Malmivaara), käyttivät tietoisesti hyväkseen laajentuvan julkisuuden mahdollisuuksia. He arvioivat liikkeensä yhteiskunnallista merkitystä uudestaan ja lähtivät mukaan niin sanottuun suomalaiskansalliseen projektiin. Heränneiden omankuvan ohella körttiläisyyden julkisuuskuvaan vaikuttivat ulkopuolisten vaikuttajien sen luonteesta esittämät käsitykset. Printed Pages: 282. 114504

Politiikan kenttä ja kieli määriteltiin 1870-luvulla uudelleen maaseudun kokoussaleissa ja puhujalavoilla. Syntyi Suomalainen puolue, joka lähti "kansan tahdon" nimissä taisteluun poliittisesta vaikutusvallasta. Fennomanian ja kansan suhde paljastaa kansakunnan muodostuksen suomalaisen erityispiirteen: Suomen kansalaisyhteiskunnan järjestäytyminen kietoutui modernin politiikan läpimurtoon, taisteluun kansallisesta hegemoniasta ja oikeudesta edustaa "kansan tahtoa".

Hyvän elämän Filosofiaa
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2015; 9522222402; New; 
Lisääkö rikkaus onnellisuutta? Miten erottaa hyvä ja paha ilman uskontoa? Miksi kuolemaa ei tarvitse pelätä? Professori Ilkka Niiniluodon teos on punnittu puheenvuoro ihmisen mahdollisuuksista hyvään elämään. Se pohtii perusasioita, joita kukaan ajatteleva ihminen ei voi sivuuttaa ? tahdon vapautta, viisauden olemusta ja oppimisen iloa. Se myös taustoittaa vaikeita kysymyksiä kertomalla niiden historiaa ja arvioimalla filosofien niistä esittämiä näkemyksiä. Niiniluoto nojaa uskonnon sijaan tieteelliseen ihmiskäsitykseen. Hänen mukaansa ihmisenä olemisen ytimenä on tiedostaa itsensä ainutkertaisena olentona, jolla on mahdollisuus toteuttaa omia kykyjään ja pitää huolta toisista oikeudenmukaisella tavalla.

Reappraisals of Eino Kaila's Philosophy
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2012; 9519264760; New; 
Eino Kaila 's (1890?1958) academic career spanned from his early psychological work and the simultaneous interest in religious and pragmatist themes, through his mature logically empiristic philosophy of science, up to his late thought, with a desperate search for the philosophical foundations of a unified scientific worldview. Most of the essays appearing in this volume are based on an international symposium on Eino Kaila 's philosophy organized at the University of Helsinki in September 2010. The symposium offered reappraisals of Kaila 's philosophy from a number of different perspectives, including not only epistemology and philosophy of science but also Kaila 's criticism of metaphysics and religion as well as his view on ethics.

One might wonder what a single-chamber parliament, dish drying cabinets and text messaging have in common. Or what the link is between maternity packs, xylitol, the sauna and free school meals. The answer is simple: they are all Finnish social innovations. In Finland, as elsewhere, technical inventions have hogged all the economic limelight, but it is only recently that social innovations have been highlighted as the foundation of societal harmony. Gender equality, free education, universal social security and parliamentary democracy, and the consequent social stability they create, have secured Finlands welfare. Printed Pages: 351. 117323

Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2003; 9517464614; New;

Kirjassa tarkastellaan mm. Kiinan, Korean ja Japanin kulttuureja yhdistäviä ja niitä erottavia piirteitä.

Isänmaan Uhrit: Sankarikuolema Suomessa toisen maailmansodan Aikana
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2006; 9517468156; New; 
Tutkimuksessa seurataan sankarivainajien viimeistä matkaa rintamalta kotiseudulle monesta eri näkökulmasta. Sotilaan kuolema merkitsi tappiota armeijalle, mutta kipeimmän menetyksen kokivat kaatuneen perheen jäsenet. Itse asiassa sankarikuolema kosketti koko kansakuntaa: sanottiinhan rintamalla taisteltavan yhteisen isänmaan puolesta. Tutkimuksen keskeisinä lähteinä on käytetty sota-ajan kirjeitä, sankarivainajien kuolinilmoituksia ja kaunokirjallisuutta, joissa tulee erinomaisesti esille se, millä tavoilla sotilaan kuolemaan suhtauduttiin ja millaisiksi niin itse sankari kuin hänen omaisensa ja kaikki suomalaiset sotavuosina kuvattiin.

Valkoinen Intiaani: Tutkimusmatkailija Rafael Karstenin elämä
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2011; 9522222887; New; 
Ensimmäinen suomalainen tutkimusmatka Etelä-Amerikan intiaanikulttuurien pariin alkoi syyskuussa 1911. Se oli suuri tieteellinen seikkailu tuntemattomien kulttuurien ihmeisiin, ja matkan varrelle mahtui sekä gangsterimaisia vaaroja että myötätuntoa sorrettuja intiaanikansoja kohtaan. Teos on tarina tutkimusmatkailija Rafael Karstenista ja hänen kolmesta ensimmäisestä tutkimusmatkastaan Etelä-Amerikkaan. Ennen julkaisemattomaan aineistoon pohjautuva kirja kertoo niistä Karstenin elämän merkityksellisistä hetkistä ja ihmisistä, jotka johdattivat hänet intiaanien luokse. Keveät henkilökuvat punoutuvat historiallisiin tapahtumiin ja luovat värikkään kertomuksen suomalaisen tutkijan monivaiheisesta elämästä. Printed Pages: 296. 115213

Elämän Politiikat
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2016; 9527093074; New; 
Elämän politiikat on perinpohjainen johdatus Michel Foucault’n ajattelun käyttöön kriittisessä yhteiskunta- ja politiikan tutkimuksessa. Se esittelee laajasti biopolitiikan käsitettä sekä tutkimuksia elämän hallinnasta ja politisoitumisesta muun muassa terveydenhoidon, sosiaaliturvan ja -huollon, biolääketieteen sekä mielenterveystyön asiayhteyksissä. Kirja selventää biopolitiikan käytettävyyttä ajankohtaisten ilmiöiden, niiden historian ja lähitulevaisuuden ymmärtämisen, analyysin ja kritiikin käsitteellisenä työkaluna. Se tuo havainnollisesti esiin foucaultlaisen ajattelun käyttökelpoisuuden ja rajoitukset riskinhallinnan, globalisaation, hyvinvointivaltion uusliberalistisen käänteen ja biotalouden ymmärtämisessä. Ilpo Helén on Suomessa ja kansainvälisesti arvostettu sosiologi, historioitsija ja tieteentutkija, joka on soveltanut foucaultlaista lähestymistapaa laaja-alaisesti lisääntymis- ja seksuaalilääketieteen, biolääketieteen, mielenterveystyön, terveyspolitiikan ja siirtolaisuuden hallinnoinnin tutkimuksessa. Tällä hetkellä hän työskentelee sosiologian professorina Itä-Suomen yliopistossa. Printed Pages: 401. 116711

Livonian Prosody
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2008; 9525667014; New; 
Livonian is a Finnic language spoken nowadays by a small number of people in coastal villages of Courland in Western Latvia and in Latvian major towns. This book presents new acoustic data and a phonetically based phonological analysis of this highly endangered language. Because nowadays all Livonians are Latvian-Livonian bilinguals, the study contains also a comparative analysis of the Latvian pronunciation of some Livonian speakers. Printed Pages: 165. 116289

Rabindranath Tagore: One Hundred Years of Global Reception
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8125055681; Hardcover; New; New; 
When Tagore won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913 for his own English translation of Gitanjali (Song Offerings), he became the first non-European to do so, achieving immediate fame.Translations in other languages of this and other works followed. Reams were written on his writings, and his personality. As aworld citizen, Tagore aimed at bringing the ‘East’ and the ‘West’ together for an inclusive humanism. His was assumed to be the Voice of India—indeed of Asia and the colonised world. The Nobel Prize gave him the authority to speak, and the intellectual elite of many countries listened. The editors of Rabindranath Tagore: One Hundred Years of Global Reception had asked Tagore experts worldwide to narrate how the Bengali author was received from 1913 until our time. Their thirty-five essays arranged by region or language group inform us about translations, the impact of Tagore’s visits, and his subsequent standing in the world of letters. Tagore’s reception while often enthusiastic was not always adulatory, occasionally undergoing dramatic metamorphoses, and diverse political and social milieus and cultural movements responded to him differently. This nuanced global reception is for the first time dealt with comprehensively and systematically in this volume presented as a work of reference. These essays remind us that Tagore’s works keep being reprinted or retranslated for he continues to be relevant to modern readers.Printed Pages: 692. 101974
