Studies in Language Origins: Volume 1
John Benjamins Publishing Company; Amsterdam, The Netherlands; 1989; 9027239525; First Edition; Paperback; Good; 15 Cms x 21 Cms 
The question of language origin has fascinated many people for many years. Traditionally, humanists like linguists and philosophers have attempted to solve it with limited success. In the last decades, however, the sciences have begun to study the same question seemingly with more success. This book is the result of the activities of a group of scholars, members of the Language Origins Society, who have approached the problem not only from the viewpoint of linguistics, but also from that of anatomy, physiology, social sciences, physical anthropology, paleoanthropology, paleontology, comparative zoology, general biology, etho- logy, evolutionary biology, psychology, etc. The volume thus clearly reflects the interdisciplinary approach the Language Origins Society is advocating. Since this book is the first of a series meant for the general scholar, it attempts to avoid specialist jargon. Hence it is equally useful for student courses in linguistics, social sciences, communication science, ethology, evolutionary biology and speech therapy. Printed Pages: 354.

13113 Janaki Nair
Mysore Modern: Rethinking the Region Under Princely Rule
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8125045074; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Mysore Modernreconceptualizes Indian modernity through critical engagement with some important themes taken from the history of the Princely State of Mysore. In this work, Janaki Nair argues that the Princely Indian states were usually regarded as spaces that were either defined entirely by the dominant narratives of colonial/national modernity or were relatively untouched by them. Grounded in political history, and deriving insights from a wide range of visual, social, and legal texts and issues, Mysore Modern reperiodizes the modern by connecting these apparently discrepant registers to build up a case for a specifically regional, “monarchical modern” moment in Indian history. Nair examines mural and portraiture traditions, as well as forms of memorialization and nationalization of art and architectural practices. The volume also considers bureaucratic efforts centered on the use of law and development as instruments of modernity. As Nair demonstrates, a political history of Mysore, and of its many experiments with modernity, while relying on such disparate prisms as art and architecture, the law, or the discourse of development, challenges not only more conventional narratives of Mysore’s modern past, but signals the necessity of taking the region, rather than the nation, as the ground for specifying forms of Indian modernity. The work will be of interest not just to those specialists who work on the history of Mysore/Karnataka, but also to art historians, social and legal historians, while appealing to many who are more generally engaged in rethinking both the region and Indian modernity.Printed Pages: 372. 037021

Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8125051317; Softcover; New; 
India has a large network of around 634 universities and 33,000 colleges with 817,000 teachers spread across the length and breadth of the country. Despite its massive geographical reach, higher education in India has had its share of problems. This volume is a collection of essays which discusses these problems like inclusiveness and the impact of reservation on education, the problems of mediocrity, shortage of funds, dwindling numbers of faculty and the unemployment of the educated youth, to name a few. Tracing the history of higher education in India from the days of Nalanda and Takshashila, Jandhyala B. G. Tilak in his introduction explains why it is necessary to have a vision and a roadmap for this.Printed Pages: 552. 101746

The Cambridge Companion to Qur'an
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2006; 052153934X; First Edition; Paperback; New; 228 x 152 Mm 
As the living scriptural heritage of more than a billion people, the Qur'an (Koran) speaks with a powerful voice. Just as other scriptural religions, Islam has produced a long tradition of interpretation for its holy book. Nevertheless, efforts to introduce the Qur'an and its intellectual heritage to English-speaking audiences have been hampered by the lack of available resources. The Cambridge Companion to the Qur'an seeks to remedy that situation. In a discerning summation of the field, Jane McAuliffe brings together an international team of scholars to explain its complexities. Comprising fourteen chapters, each devoted to a topic of central importance, the book is rich in historical, linguistic and literary detail, while also reflecting the influence of other disciplines. For both the university student and the general reader, The Cambridge Companion to the Qur'an provides a fascinating entrée to a text that has shaped the lives of millions for centuries. • An authoritative and comprehensive guide to the Qur’an for students and general readers • Contributions from internationally renowned scholars in the field • Lavishly illustrated and accessibly composed Contents Introduction; Part I.

Old House Care and Repair
Donhead Publishing Ltd; Dorset, UK; 2002; 1873394705; First Edition; Hard Cover; Brand New; 18 Cms x 25 Cms 
Owners of old houses are often baffled by the confusing advice they receive from their builders, architects or surveyors who may be more familiar with repairing modern buildings than dealing with the issues associated with traditional houses. Old houses generally require a different approach, one, for instance, which takes account of their need to ‘breathe’. Modern solutions do not always recognise that need. This book will help owners, builders and all construction professionals make the decisions that are right for old buildings. It illustrates the long term benefits of using more traditional solutions on older houses rather than modern materials like cement based mortars, sealants or impervious paints. It offers practical guidance on: How to get the right professional advice Legal requirements for listed buildings Problems with damp and rot Use of lime mortars, plasters and renders Why old buildings need to breathe Planning applications Trees, outbuildings and gardens Contents: Introduction The nature of old buildings Legal responsibilities of ownership Professional help, money and time-scales What causes old buildings to decay Maintenance, repair and what to avoid Alterations and extensions Preventative measures and wildlife Interiors and their care Surrounding an old house Trees and gardens Conclusions Appendix – lime Further reading Websites Index Printed Pages: 208 with numerous b/w photographs. 023135

Google Speaks: Secrets of The World's Greatest Billionaire Entrepreneurs, Sergey Brin and Larry Page
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8126523433; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
Google Speaks is an easy to read, informative book about one of the most important companies in the 21st century. Written in the "Speaks" style that has proven so successful in profiling other business leaders, Google Speaks reveals the amazing story behind Google, a company that in a brief 15 years has become a household name and, in the process, has created a new model for corporate responsibility and employee relations. Written by Janet Lowe, the book examines how Google's founders, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, transformed their vision of a better Internet search engine into a business colossus with about $16 billion in annual revenue. Lowe explores the values that drive Brin and Page; for example, how they both live in modest apartments and drive Toyota Priuses, despite each having a net worth in excess of $18.5 billion. It discusses how Brin and Page have created a culture that fosters creativity and fun, while at the same time, keeping Google at the forefront of technology through large R&D investments and partnerships with organizations such as NASA. The book also addresses controversial issues surrounding Google, such as copyright infringement, antitrust concerns, and personal privacy. In addition to exploring Google's break-through business strategies, Lowe explains why Google may be a harbinger of where corporate America is headed in terms of corporate culture, social responsibility and employee relations. In short, Google Speaks provides insights into the people and philosophies behind one of the most important new companies of our time.Printed Pages: 336. 104665

Bharata Natyam on the Global Stage: At Home in the World (Performing Arts Series: Vol. X)
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8120833627; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
One of the most popular and widely performed dance styles in India and around the world, bharata natyam has made the transition from its beginnings in the temples and courts of southern India to a highly respected international dance practice. In this study of a classical dance form, author Janet O'Shea tracks the choreographic transformations that accompanied the transfer of bharata natyam to the urban concert stage in the 1930s and 1940s. At Home in the World situates these changes within the political debates of their time and ties the concerns of this period to present- day practice. The history of this dance is also a history of India itself, and readers can trace various national struggles over gender identity, regionalism, and globalism through O'Shea's narrative. With over 250 teachers in the United States alone, bharata natyam offers a remarkable case study of how a traditional art form moves into the world. Printed Pages: 222. 031412

Trans-Himalayan Caravans: Merchant Princes and Peasant Traders in Ladakh
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2001; 0195658175; First Paperback Edition; Paperback; New; 215 x 140 Mm 
This book documents the extraordinarily complex pattern of trade upon which the pre-Independence economy of Ladakh largely depended. Although the trans-Himalayan traffic in subsistence commodities in other parts of the Himalaya has been researched, that in Ladakh has until now remained almost entirely undocumented. The book is based mainly on oral evidence; this is related to documentary sources ranging from the seventeenth to the twentieth century. This intriguing account of Ladakhi trade is spiced with enough personal details of the traders at all levels, to demonstrate that trade' is something more than a matter of routes and commodities, prices and rates of profit; it is an activity carried out by real human beings, profoundly colouring their entire way of life. From review (Dr Rizvi's) book is a magisterial account of... the legendary silk routes and Ladakh itself that she knows so well. It is a wonderfully evocative book about the trade routes... (and) a brilliant synthesis of the oral histories... with the traditional historian's concern for objectivity and real analysis. She narrates wonderful life stories....' - Dr Hamida Khuhro, Dawn Printed Pages: 392. 024496

The classic Kashmir shawl is among the most exquisite textiles ever woven, the product of consummate skill and artistry applied to one of the world's most delicate fibres. This authoritative study introduces the Kashmir shawl as a cultural artefact with a known history spanning four centuries.

Forever Ours: Real Stories Of Immortality And Living From A Forensic Pathologist
Yogi Impressions; Mumbai, India; 8188479136; First Edition; Paperback; New; 13 x 20 Cm 
Janis Amatuzio, MD, is a recognized authority in forensic medicine. She became a pathologist in part because it allowed her to help unravel the mystery of each person's death. She found that by listening and talking to the loved ones of the deceased, she could offer them some sense of closure. In the course of her work, she has heard extraordinary stories from grieving family members, patients near death, police officers, and colleagues - stories of the spiritual and otherworldly experiences concerning the transition between life and death. These stories affirmed Dr. Amatuzio's belief that, contrary to the attitudes of many in the medical community, there is more to death than just the cessation of breath. From the experience of one of her first patients - who on the day of his death told of being "visited" by a friend who had been dead forty years - to incredible coincidences - such as two daughters thousands of miles apart experiencing unexplained sensations at the precise moment their father passed away - Dr. Amatuzio began recording the stories she heard. Forever Ours presents these heartfelt accounts, exploring the realms of visions, synchronicities, and communications on death's threshold. Told in the voice of a compassionate scientist and medical expert who sees death every day, these stories eloquently convey the comfort Dr. Amatuzio has found in what she sees and hears. The book offers readers hope, comfort, and profound lessons on living. Printed Pages: 224. 015952

Vedic and Sanskrit Historical Linguistics (Papers of the 13th World Sanskrit Conference Volume 3)
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8120836324; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This volume contains 10 articles based on papers presented at the Linguistics sessions of the 13th World Sanskrit Conference (Edinburgh, July 2006) and shows the engagement of scholars with all aspects of Vedic Grammar, including phonology, inflectional and derivational morphology, syntax, semantics, lexicography, and stylistics. In many cases the articles constitute integral parts of long-term research projects of their authors that are ongoing even at this date of publication and therefore present the broad sweep of the field of Vedic linguistics as it is currently being practised. The contributions include two on phonology (Kobayashi and Kummel), two on morphology (Garcia Ramon and Tucker), three on syntax (Bubenik, Hettrich, and Hock), one on the semantics of tense and aspect (Dahl), one on lexicography (Krisch), and one on stylistics (Klein). In several instances these papers fit integrally into the research agendas of their authors, representing parts of larger projects reflected in recent publications (Bubenik, Dahl, Garcia Ramon, Hettrich, Klein, Kobayashi) or deal with issues touched on repeatedly by their authors over a number of years (Hock). In one case (Krisch), the work announced has in the interim begun to appear and represent a broad reflection of research projects currently underway in Sanskrit Linguistics. That all but one of the papers focus exclusively on Vedic is simply a reflection of the reality that in Western countries the study of Sanskrit has frequently been treated as an entrée to Indo-European linguistics, and it is especially the oldest texts that have been mined for whatever nuggets they can yield relative to our understanding of the proto-language.Printed Pages: 309. 102040

Defence from the Skies: 80 Years of the Indian Air Force (Second Edtion)
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789381904534; Second Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Indian Air Force now completes 80 years since it was formed as an independent component of India’s armed forces. Time and again, the air force has performed magnificently even against severe odds, and built up a professional reputation that is the envy of leading air forces of the word. This volume, as the Second Edition of the earlier volume published in 2007 has been extensively revised and updated. Air Forces are unique in the sense that they are the only national military institution exclusively devoted to military operations in the aerospace continuum. The Indian Air Force is no different. But their dominant role in modern warfare, the high costs of aerospace power, and a host of other factors demand closer attention to their role in modern defence and the protection of national interests. Air Forces don’t win wars by themselves; and no one in the Indian Air Force has ever claimed it. But no war can be won without them. We learnt that seminal lesson the hard way when we did not use the potent force of the IAF’s combat fleet in the Sino-Indian War of 1962. It is from this perspective that this study — or rather an interpretative essay reflecting on the significant issues and events of the past 80 years — approaches the challenges the Indian Air Force faces in the coming decades. IAF combat force levels have slumped while its commitments are rapidly growing in consonance with our expanding economic and political interests well beyond our territorial boundaries.Printed Pages: 430. 104298

China's India War 1962: Looking Back to see the Future
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789381904725; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
A potential competition exists between India and China, and there is also no doubt that China started the war. Highlighting the mistakes made by India rather than empirically analysing the available data can be regarded as the primary causes for the confusion that exists today. Though complete details and evidence of the developments are available and documented, few of us have attempted to draw up a pragmatic and realist analysis.The consequences of that war have yet to die down entirely and are frequently raked up with issues on recent developments which are not widely dissimilar to those of 1962. China is a complex country. To understand this rapidly progressing nation is even more difficult. There are many perceptions on this country and many of them are formed on account of some international events and China’s growing assertiveness. It may be far-fetched to expect for a paradigm change in stance and motive which could give China an uncertain negotiating position. This edited volume provides the reader an excellent blend of the historical run-up to the aberration, the military developments and consequences. It is also provides useful material to understand the geographical boundary issues between India and China and developing Chinese strategies both on the political and military front.Printed Pages: 332. 104305

Asian Defence Review 2011
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2012; 9789381904008; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
With the shift of global power from West to East, we have entered the era of an Asia centred century. The rise of China and India, the recovery and resurgence of Russia on one side and Japan on the other, and the nature of the international order are leading to enormous changes. These transformational changes in the military, economic and political dynamics of Asia are accelerating with the passage of time.

The ICON: Marshal of the Air Force, Arjan Singh, DFC (Second Edition)
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2011; 9789380502694; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This is the story of one man who has been the ICON of the Indian Air Force (IAF) for decades – but in reality it is also the history of a family called the IAF. Arjan Singh joined this family in his teens when the Second World War started, and rose to be the sole Marshal of the Indian Air Force, the highest military rank attainable which before him only two army chiefs, Carriappa and Sam Manekshaw, had achieved. At the ripe old age of 24, he commanded No. 1 Squadron, flying Hurricane fighters in defence of Imphal, in1944 beseiged by the Japanese, where the Supreme Commander SEAC, Lord Mountbatten, in an unprecedented step, personally awarded the DFC (Distinguished Flying Cross) to him on the battlefield itself for his leadership and performance in defeating the Japanese.Arjan Singh had a meteoric career and led the Indian Air Force to an unequivocal victory in Pakistan’s War in 1965. In spite of enormous difficulties, shortages, internal challenges and restraints, the IAF clearly dominated Pakistan Air Force (PAF), stopping their armour offensive on 1st September in its tracks while providing near 100 per cent of the required direct offensive air support to our army.This biography by India’s leading defence expert, unambiguously debunks the myths of Pakistani superiority, promoted by their propaganda and our own negligence of history and empirical evidence. And it does so on the basis of hard facts, a large number of them brought to light for the first time, and explains the political and operational restrictions that applied to the air operations. The IAF was shooting down three Pakistani fighters for the loss of one of their own besides providing full support to our Army. It was shooting down three Pakistani fighters for the loss of one of their own besides providing full support to our Army. It was not only the Gnats that became “Sabre Killers” but Hunters and Mysteres shot down a large number of Sabres and Starfighters in air combat, while Canberra bombers defied the PAF by providing daylight close air support to our troops.Printed Pages: 370. 104375

Indian Aircraft Industry
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2011; 9789380502519; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Aviation came to India quite early, in fact a century ago, and an aircraft factory, Hindustan Aircraft Ltd., had been set up 70 years ago in Bangalore. But India, from its 25 percent share of global manufacturing in 1750, had been deindustrialised in the previous two centuries and its technological and economic capacity had been emasculated by the Raj. Hence, it had no industry, leave alone defence industry, to talk of at the time of independence. But by 1948, the first Indian design of a primary trainer, the HT-2, was started and soon, the licensed production of the first jet fighter, the Vampire, commenced at HAL.During the 15 years before the Sino-Indian War in 1962, HAL moved ahead rapidly, designing a number of light aircraft. It began the design of the jet trainer Kiran, and manufactured the famous Gnat fighter which acquired the reputation of “Sabre Killer” in the 1965 War with Pakistan. Above all, it started an ambitious project in 1956 to manufacture a multi-role combat aircraft, the HF-24 Marut, which turned out to be an outstanding design. Notwithstanding our inability to get an adequately powerful engine for it, three squadrons equipped with the aircraft served the country well in the 1971 War on the Western front.During the Nehru era, the aircraft industry rested on three strands of self-reliance: indigenous design and development, licensed manufacture, and outright import in some cases. Unfortunately, after the 1962 War, the need for expansion of the IAF led to enormous demands of modern aircraft of all types, and the country’s defence needs were mostly met by licensed production of hundreds of fighter and transport aircraft and helicopters. We seemed to have become complacent (or incapable of professional thinking). In the process, the self-reliance model of three strands shrank to just two strands, with indigenous design and development, which is the most crucial element in creating autonomy in aircraft and other industrial enterprises, suffering a serious setback amounting to neglect for more than three decades. This has been changing during the past decade and new opportunities are opening up with a sustained high economic growth on one side and opening up of new sources of technology and arms on the other. But major institutional and structural reforms would be required to take advantage of the new opportunities. This volume by the country’s leading defence expert, points out to the nature of these reforms after examining the Russian and Chinese experiences. This book is a must for military and industry professionals, students of defence, those interested in aviation and the general reader.Printed Pages: 312. 104390

Military Leadership for Tomorrow
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8187966580; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
A leader, military, political or in any other profession, is inevitably a lonely person, and yet a successful leader, especially in the military profession, must be a very sensitive person to be able to lead successfully through the motivation, dedication and loyalty of those he leads. In the military profession, of course, this acquires even greater salience since the profession, at one level, demands a willingness and readiness to make the supreme sacrifice, and, at another, involves victory or defeat of the country that nurtures its military power.According to an American saying, “There are three types of leaders: those who make things happen, those that watch things happen, and those who wonder what happened!” This is why the military needs leaders of the first kind, and who can not only manage and motivate people, but also ideas and concepts for which they must acquire knowledge on a broad basis. Modern military power is highly technology oriented and even dominated by it. Current trends indicate that this will increase in future. Contrary to conventional wisdom, this will increase the premium on the quality of the man dealing with the machine at all levels. In the air forces, this would matter even more since “so much will depend on so few.”We need strategists at all levels; and the chiefs of the armed forces of 2040 are already in active service. They would have to provide military professional advice to the political leadership at crucial times under enormous uncertainties where “actionable” intelligence would not be available, and their own knowledge and experience would have to guide them. To enable them to do so successfully, these officers would have to be given broad-based education and knowledge. Above all, successful military leadership would require very high standards of professional integrity as well as personal integrity – at all levels.This volume brings together eminent experts well versed in the theory and practice of leadership and the knowledge that needs to be available to them. The issues explored in this volume are equally applicable to other professions, especially in the corporate world.Printed Pages: 28. 104427

India's Defence Spending: Assessing Future Needs (Second Edition)
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2000; 8187966076; Second Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
India’s defence spending experienced a marked decline since the late 1980s.From 3.6% of the GDP in 1987, defence spending came down to 2.1%, which was the lowest figure in nearly four decades. Modernisation, training and preparedness suffered heavily as a consequence since other segments of the expenditure remained pre-committed. Decline in defence capability was a major factor encouraging Pakistan to launch Kargil War in 1999.Printed Pages: 276. 104474

KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 1999; 8186019200; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Momentous changes have been taking place in the global and Asian security parameters in recent years. The sudden and devastating financial crisis which swept East Asia in 1997,the continuing problems of economic restructuring in Russia, the perennial war in Afghanistan, the emerging challenges of energy security, trans-national terrorism, the continuing reliance on nuclear weapons, the transition of India and Pakistan across the nuclear threshold in May 1998(followed by their limited border war in Kargil in May-July1999) are only some of the more urgent issues of security which need to be evaluated comprehensively by all the countries of Asia, especially since all indications are that the next century will be an Asian Century.Printed Pages: 290. 104478

Role of Indian Air Force in 1971 War
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789381904503; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Indian Air Force which was initially created as an independent military force proved to be an independent and versatile component of Indias military power in 1971 War. This book provides insightful essays and material to critically review and revalidate some of the continuing concepts and approaches to the planning and execution of military operations. This edited version delves into the national interest protection and legitimate compulsions for India to go into war. The compilation also lays out the canvass for a comparison study with the one in 1965. The analyses on military strategy of Pakistan and avenues of shortcoming in joint planning bring out important lessons in force employment. The aggressive dimensions of offensive actions by all the three Services have been well documented.The 1971 War proved the heroism, steadfastness and courage of junior leadership that, incidentally, has also been the hallmark during Kargil in 1999. Despite frequent criticisms on jointness, instances of combined resoluteness and mutual trust during 1971 War contributed immensely to the victory. Valuable lessons can be inferred from instances where objectivity in political decisions brought about judicious outcomes through demonstrable use of military power.The book also provides a few analytical horizons on the background framework of Simla Agreement and certain events in the past that could have developed a different template for history. Air power may be difficult to understand but an evaluation of the purpose, cost and expected gains as evident from various instances of history including 1971 War would bring an end to many irreconcilable and inchoate debates. This book makes for a compelling read for those in quest of understanding the competence of air power and its dominant influences to shape victory.Printed Pages: 238. 104326
