13613 John Lipski
A History of Afro-Hispanic Language: Five Centuries, Five Continents
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2005; 0521822653; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 228 x 152 Mm 
The African slave trade, beginning in the fifteenth century, brought African languages into contact with Spanish and Portuguese, resulting in the Africans’ gradual acquisition of these languages. In this book, John Lipski describes the major forms of Afro-Hispanic language found in the Iberian Peninsula and Latin America over the last 500 years. As well as discussing pronunciation, morphology and syntax, he separates legitimate forms of Afro-Hispanic expression from those that result from racist stereotyping, to assess how contact with the African diaspora has had a permanent impact on contemporary Spanish. A principal issue is the possibility that Spanish, in contact with speakers of African languages, may have creolized and restructured - in the Caribbean and perhaps elsewhere - permanently affecting regional and social varieties of Spanish today. The book is accompanied by the largest known anthology of primary Afro-Hispanic texts from Iberia, Latin America, and former Afro-Hispanic contacts in Africa and Asia. • First book in English to provide an overview of the language contact situations that shaped Afro-Hispanic language • Provides a comprehensive coverage of five centuries and five continents of Afro-Hispanic language and cultural encounters • Contains the largest-known anthology of primary texts documenting Afro-Hispanic language Contents 1. Africans in the Iberian Peninsular, the slave trade, and overview of Afro-Iberian linguistic contacts; 2. Early Afro-Portuguese texts; 3. Early Afro-Hispanic texts; 4. Africans in colonial Spanish America; 5. Afro-Hispanic texts from Latin America; 6. Survey of major African language families; 7. Phonetics/phonology of Afro-Hispanic language; 8. Grammatical features of Afro-Hispanic language; 9. The Spanish-creole debate. Printed Pages: 364. 012793

Phonetic Interpretation: Papers in Laboratory Phonology VI
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2004; 0521824028; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 228 x 152 Mm 
Phonetic Interpretation presents innovative work from four core areas: phonological representations and the lexicon, phonetic interpretation and phrasal structure, phonetic interpretation and syllable structure, and phonology and natural speech production. Written by major figures in the fields of phonetics, phonology and speech perception, the chapters in this volume use a wide range of laboratory and instrumental techniques to analyse the production and perception of speech, their aim being to explore the relationship between the sounds of speech and the linguistic organisation that lies behind that. The chapters present evidence of the lively intellectual engagement of laboratory phonology practitioners with the complexities and richness of human language. The book continues the tradition of the series, Papers in Laboratory Phonology, by bringing linguistic theory to bear on an essential problem of linguistics: the relationship between mental models and the physical nature of speech. • Sixth in an extremely well reviewed series of volumes from Laboratory Phonology conferences • An interdisciplinary work which provides analysis of a wide range of languages • Contributions by major figures in the fields Contents 1.

13618 John Lyons
Language and Linguistics: An Introduction
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 1981; 0521540887; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
A general introduction to linguistics and the study of language, intended particularly for beginning students and readers with no previous knowledge or training in the subject. There is first a general account of the nature of language and of the aims, methods and basic principles of linguistic theory. John Lyons then introduces in turn each of the main sub-fields of linguistics: the sounds of language, grammar, semantics, language change, psycholinguistics: the sounds of language, grammar, semantics, language change, psycholinguistics, language and culture. Throughout the book he emphasizes particularly those aspects of the discipline that seem fundamental and most likely to remain important. He stresses throughout the cultural at least as much as the biological context of human language, and shows how the linguist’s concerns connect productively with those of the traditional humanities and the social sciences. The book is designed to be used as an elementary textbook, and is therefore written at a lower level and is more comprehensive in scope than the author’s classic Introduction to Theoretical Linguistics (Cambridge University Press, 1968). Each chapter has a wide-ranging set of discussion questions and revision exercises, and extensive suggestions for further reading. The exposition is marked throughout by the author’s characteristic clarity, balance and authority. Contents Preface; 1. Language; 2. Linguistics; 3. The sounds of language; 4. Grammar; 5. Semantics; 6. Language-change; 7. Some modern schools and movements; 8. Language and mind; 9. Language and society; 10. Language and culture; Bibliography; Index. Printed Pages: 366. 008641

Hindutva Sex Adventure
IndiaInk/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8186939490; Softcover; New; 
Andrew Luyt, a radio journalist, is posted to India because he was born there and speaks a smattering of Hindi. Armed with his Nagra professional tape recorder and with all the clichés, prejudices and ideas that his strict Protestant and secular upbringing has instilled in him, he covers some important events, of the eighties and the nineties, in Kashmir, Ayodhya, Tawang and Pakistan. Along the way, he falls in love with a young Indian girl, Imla, a print journalist and together they have a number of adventures and some unusual sex. Gradually, as he interprets what he encounters in India, he veers towards a soft Hindutva vision, because he feels Hinduism offers many ways to god and that it is a way of life rather than a religion. Imla, however, remains committed to a secular vision and they often disagree. Thirty years later, Andrew, by now famous both in India and in England, resigns from his job, starts writing books and practising a spirituality that is a blend of Christianity and Hinduism. Andrew has found success and fame but has he found love and friendship? And where is Imla? Printed Pages: 166. 108483

Thoughts on the Policy of the Crown Towards India
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1986; 8121200202; Softcover; New; 
The year 1857 was a turning point in the History of British India. In this year the Sepoy Mutiny broke out, which, though suppressed by force by the then Government of the East India Company, riveted the attention of all educated Englishmen on India. Statesmen, Parliamentarians and people concerned with the welfare of the British nation went deep into the causes of the Mutiny and analysed its immediate and far-reaching impacts on the Military Strength and Financial resources of England. The causes of the disaster were not far to seek. The General maladministration of the Company, their annexation policy, interference with the age-old practice of succession by Adoption among the Indian princes, fear of the Indian people both the Hindus and the Musalmans - that the Government, with the Help of the Christian missionaries, are trying to convert the whole nation into Christianity, Discrimination of the natives from the Englishmen in Civil and military services as well as in the administration of justice, etc. became known as the causes behind the Mutiny. The future of the Indian Empire appeared to be grim to all right thinking persons in England.As a result of this retrospection and debate at home, the British Government of Queen Victoria decided to act to the right direction. Then came the Queen's Proclamation, the India Bill was passed by the British Parliament, the time-honoured administration of the East India Company swept away, the Government of India was transferred to the Crown, and a reponsible Ministry for India established. The Queen's Proclamation was welcomed both in England and in India. It promised redress to all the above mentioned grievances and to establish an impartial clean Government for the Indians.The present work, written by a contemporary British thinker, is an interpretative Study of the Queen's proclamation and the post-mutiny Policy of the Crown towards India. It takes up the Proclamation, section by section, and analyses the various promises contained therein. To make the subject properly understandable, the author has described the conditions existing prior to the Mutiny and the grievances of the people on various accounts, in great details. The work is a record of the state of affirs before and after the Reforms and an interpretation of the Policies of the British Government towards India.The work has been reprinted from the 1859 Edition in view of its Importance as source material for the study of the evolution of British Raj in India.Printed Pages: 384. 105654

The Impossible is Possible
Orient Paperbacks; New Delhi, India; 8122204805; Softcover; New; 
Doing What Others Say Can't Be Done!Deep inside you lives an impossible thought. A dream longing to come true. There's a mission residing in you... Yet something holds you back... perhaps it is indecision or the fear of unknown, risk, faith, friends, the past mistakes, indecision, or something you can't really pin down.Almost everything we enjoy today was impossible yesterday. So, what transforms an impossible into a possibility, a possibility into a probability, and probability into a fact?For many years 'safety first' has been the motto of human race... but it has never been the motive of the doers, leaders and dreamers. Doers, whether leaders or dreamers must take risk and stick their neck out... Being destined for greatness requires you to take risks, confront the unexpected and play your shots. For you will always miss 100 per cent of the shots you don't take. When your chances are slim and none... go for the slim.Printed Pages: 200. 106696

The Reconstruction of the Church of Ireland: Bishop Bramhall and the Laudian Reforrms, 1633-1641
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2007; 052164318X; First Edition; Hardcover; Brand New; Brand New; 228 x 152 Mm 
Thomas Wentworth landed in Ireland in 1633 - almost 100 years after Henry VIII had begun his break with Rome. The majority of the people were still Catholic. William Laud had just been elevated to Canterbury. A Yorkshire cleric, John Bramhall, followed the new viceroy and became, in less than one year, Bishop of Derry. This study, which is centered on Bramhall, examines how these three men embarked on a policy for the established church which represented not only a break with a century of reforming tradition but which also sought to make the tiny Irish church a model for the other Stuart kingdoms. Dr McCafferty shows how accompanying canonical changes were explicitly implemented for notice and eventual adoption in England and Scotland. However within eight years the experiment was blown apart and reconstruction denounced as subversive. Wentworth, Laud and Bramhall faced consequent disgrace, trial, death or exile. • The first book-length study of the Church of Ireland in the 1630s • A major contribution to debates about the trajectory of religious change in the decades before the Civil War • Takes a ‘Three kingdoms’ approach including comparisons with policy in England and Scotland Contents 1. Introduction; 2. The temporalities campaign, 1633–40; 3. The convocation of 1634 and its aftermath; 4. Mechanisms of reconstruction and the problem of dissent; 5. Downfall of the settlement, 1640–1; 6. Conclusion; Appendix: three letters; Bibliography; Index. Printed Pages: 320 with 5 tables and 1 map. 018624

Jnanagarbha's Commentary on Just the Maitreya Chapter from the Samdhinimocana-Sutra
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1998; 8185636370; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
The Commentary on Just the Maitreya Chapter from the Samdhinirmocana-sutra, attributed to the Indian Buddhist master Jnanagarbha, is an important work of early Indian Buddhist philosophy. As the title indicates, it focuses on the eighth chapter of the sutra. "The Question of Maitreya," one of the seminal scriptural sources for Indian Buddhist meditation theory. It provides learned commentaries on the doctrines of "calming" (samatha) and "higher insight" (vipasyana), as well as a comprehensive overview of the path to awakening as understood by the Yogcara tradition. In addition, it comments on the sutra's statement that all of the phenomena of experience are "cognition only" (vijnapti-matra), interpreting this as a statement of universal idealism. This commentary contains one of the most detailed philosophical analyses of this important chapter, and it has some of the most thought-provoking exegesis of a text that is one of the most influential of Indian Buddhist scriptures.

History as Propaganda: Tibetan Exiles Versus the People's Republic of China
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0195174267; First Paperback Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
Despite Chinese efforts to stop foreign countries from granting him visas, the Dalai Lama has become one of the most recognizable and best loved people on the planet, drawing enormous crowds wherever he goes. By contrast, China's charismatically-challenged leaders attract crowds of protestors waving Tibetan flags and shouting "Free Tibet!" whenever they visit foreign countries. By now most Westerners probably think they understand the political situation in Tibet. But, John Powers argues, most Western scholars of Tibet evince a bias in favor of one side or the other in this continuing struggle. Some of the most emotionally charged rhetoric, says Powers, is found in studies of Tibetan history. narratives. Printed Pages: 224 with 13 halftones. 014833

A New Anthropology of Islam
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2012; 1107615755; Softcover; New; 
In this powerful but accessible new study John Bowen draws on a full range of work in social anthropology to present Islam in ways that emphasise its constitutive practices from praying and learning to judging and political organising. Starting at the heart of Islam - revelation and learning in Arabic lands - Bowen shows how Muslims have adapted Islamic texts and traditions to ideas and conditions in the societies in which they live. Returning to key case studies in Asia Africa and Western Europe to explore each major domain of Islamic religious and social life Bowen also considers the theoretical advances in social anthropology that have come out of the study of Islam. A New Anthropology of Islam is essential reading for all those interested in the study of Islam and for those following new developments in the discipline of anthropology.Printed Pages: 230. 101497

Land and Local Kingship in Eighteenth-Century Bengal
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2002; 0521410746; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
This book examines the politics and culture of landholding in eastern India. Professor McLane explores the dual and sometimes conflicting roles of the zamindars, the landed chiefs, in eighteenth-century western Bengal during the decline of the Mughal empire and the rise of the British hegemony. He focuses on zamindari rent extraction, techniques of coercion, and the meaning of gift-giving and gift-receiving. He shows how the zamindars kept alive the rituals, patronage, and other traditions of normative Hindu kingship for their subjects in the villages while they extracted revenue from the peasantry and intermediate gentry for the government of the Mughals and then the English East India Company. He argues that the increased commercialization and efforts to maximize land revenues imposed severe strains on the paternalistic and gift-oriented culture of Bengal’s huge landlords. This analysis is illustrated with a case study of Bengal’s most important and controversial zamindari, the Burdwan raj.

The Politics of Water Resource Development in India: The Narmada Dams COntroversy
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0761935657; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book is about the politics of water resource development and management in India, with special reference to the Narmada river waters dispute. The author draws on a wealth of studies on Narmada as also his own research to analyse the controversy from the perspective of a political scientist. The author analyses three aspects of the conflict over developing the waters of the Narmada: - The politics of the inter-state river water dispute over Narmada waters in the context of Indian centre-state and inter-state relationships and the constitutional and legal mechanisms for resolving disputes among riparian states. - The Narmada upstream-downstream politics implicit in the battle between downstream Gujarat and Rajasthan versus upstream Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra. - The much-publicized struggle between those for and others against the construction of the gigantic Sardar Sarovar dam. Given the highly contentious nature of these struggles, the author objectively highlights how and why the outcomes of such struggles have largely depended on the realities of power.

Seven Doors to Islam: Spirituality and the Religious Life of Muslims

Seven Doors to Islam reveals the religious faith and spiritual tradition of the world's one billion Muslims. Spanning Islamic civilization from Morocco to Indonesia, Seven Doors demonstrates how Muslims have used the literary and visual arts in all their richness and diversity to communicate religious values. Each of the seven chapters opens a "door" that leads progressively closer to the heart of Islam, from the foundational revelation in the Qur'an to the transcendent experience of the Sufi Mystics. Unlike most studies of Islam, which see spirituality as the concern of a minority of mystical seekers, Seven Doors demonstrates spirituality's central role in every aspect of the Islamic religious tradition.

Over the centuries and across the globe, Muslim authors and artists have given moving testimony to their experience of being members of the Islamic community. Their many vantage points came together in this collection, one that represents major Islamic groups from the past through the present and covers a range of themes essential to understanding Islamic spirituality and religious life. Windows on the House of Islam integrates a full range of literary and visual primary sources, representing major Islamic societies and communities from the past through the present, from Arabia to the United States, and covering a broad spectrum of themes essential to an understanding of Islamic spirituality and religious life. John Renard has united over seventy translations originating from a dozen languages-including Arabic, Persian, Chinese, and Indonesian-and contributed by over thirty of the world's top Islam scholars. In addition, more than five dozen illustrations thematically document a full range of artistic forms and historical periods, from ritual objects and architecture to manuscripts of religious texts. A companion volume to Seven Doors to Islam, Windows on the House of Islam is the first book of its kind to integrate such a wide range of literary and visual forms. It serves as both an introduction to Islamic religious primary sources as well as a supplement to general works on Islamic religion, spirituality, and culture.

Hinduism and its Relations to Christianity (Interfaith Studies Revived: 2)
Christian World Imprints/B.R. Publishing Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789351480136; Reprinted; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Author has toiled hard in bringing the vast ocean of information in an easy to read form via this Book. The Book not only presents interaction of the two said faiths but its scrupulously segregated four sections cover: Part I sets forth `Earlier Religions of India' inter-alia encompassing; Earliest Vedic Religion, Brahmanism, and Buddhism. Part II looks into the deep study done by the Author to understand the philosophy and other facets of Hinduism. Part III exhibits inter-relation of Hinduism with Mohammedanism, bringing out the vast age of history when India was conquered by Mohammedans and its effects on Hindus and Hinduism.Part IV meticulously covers the real purpose of the Book, i.e., interconnection between Hinduism and Christianity in terms of their respective Affinities and Antagonisms; Reform Movements in Hinduism including the rise of Arya Samaj and Brahma Samaj vis a vis Position and Attitude of Christianity towards them.The Author has also put forward his thought, that many of the leading religious truths are same in both the stated religions but there is an incredible iniquity in Hinduism that overshadows the efforts of its Reform Movements. Finally, he believed that Christianity and its religious truths have the promising hope for India.This academic's acclaimed Book includes many insightful Appendices; and focuses on subjects like Religion, History, Islamic Studies, Christianity and its Missions. The Author's research will equally prove to be useful for Historians, Ethnologists, Christian Laity, Church Clergies, Missionaries, Mosque Leaders, Students and Researchers.Printed Pages: 286. 106428

The Three Boys and Other Buddhist Folktales from Tibet
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8178223511; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
A virtuous young woman journeys to the land of the Dead to retrieve the still-beating heart of a king; a wily corpse-monster tricks his young captor into setting him free, the king falls under a curse that turns him into a cannibal; a shepherd who understands the speech of animals, saves a princess from certain death. These are just a few of the wondrous tales that await readers of this collection of Tibetan Buddhist Folktales. Fifteen stories are told for modern readers in a vivid, accessible style that reflects a centuries-old tradition of story telling in the monasteries and marketplaces of Tibet. As a child growing up in a Buddhist monastery, Yeshi Dorjee would often coax the elderly lamas into telling him folktales. By turns thrilling, mysterious, clever, and often hilariously funny, the stories he narrates here also teach important lessons about mindfulness, compassion, and other key Buddhist principles. They will delight readers of all ages, scholars and students, Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike.Printed Pages: 223. 102419
