These articles cover a wide range of topics from exploration of prehistoric sites, excavation of Stone Age sites, life and time of Stone Age man, Pleistocene chronology, Harappan society, Socio-cultural and socio-economic history, archaeological researches in India to psychological transformation of man. The author has also dealt with some of the vital issues pertaining to archaeological researches in India — archaeology as a source of writing history, integrative inter-disciplinary approach for archaeology, models for archaeology and their social relevance, future of archaeology in India — which make field archaeologists to think to have a relook at the popular traditional approach dealing with ‘what’, ‘where’ and ‘when’, and for exploring the possibilities and other approaches attempting to know about ‘why’ and ‘how’ for better understanding of the past phenomena and better reconstruction of history. This book takes the reader on a journey from Stone Age tool bearing strata to various levels of human consciousness. This collection of articles would equally fascinate researchers and students of archaeology, culture, anthropology, sociology, philosophy, as well as the common reader interested in man and his past.Printed Pages: 351. 102718

The Being of Man: Science, Culture and Consciousness (Collected Works of Prof. S.C. Malik)
Sharada Publishing House; Delhi, India; 2015; 9789383221110; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 19 x 26 Cm 
The Being of Man is a valuable collection of articles written by Prof. S.C. Malik, on science, culture, and consciousness. These articles deal with dual nature of thought, autonomy and wholeness in creative art, thought as technology progress and civilization, dimensionless space as eternal silence, the pursuit of knowledge and happiness, self-expression, creativity and non-duality, science and new directions, violence-nonviolence, holistic science and consciousness, shifting paradigm of identity, etc. He critically analyzes Man’s thought processes, fragmentation of reality, current knowledge based on scientific researches, and explores human consciousness. The author discusses certain unquestioned assumptions that are ingrained in contemporary Man’s thought processes which lead to the fragmentation of reality. Current knowledge based on scientific research contradicts the older perspective since it speaks of interconnectedness, contemporaneity and simultaneity. He talks about the crisis of fragmentation which confronts humankind today, and effectively illustrates that a paradigmatic shift in human consciousness has become imperative. The question - Who Am I? illustrates the author's endeavour to search one's relationship with the cosmos and find a place in the universe.Printed Pages: 343. 106090

Mlecchas in Early India: A Study in Attitudes Towards Outsiders Upto AD 600
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1991; 81-215-0529-X; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
Mlecchas in Early India is about understanding socio-cultural interactions in early India. It has hitherto been argued that ancient Indians kept aloof from the outside world and from the indigenous tribal populations in an attempt to maintain their cultural exclusiveness. In this book we counter the general assumption that Indian society was static and unchanging in its attitudes towards outsiders. This has been done by fully elucidating the concept of the mlecchas in early Indian literature. In its comprehensive sense it has been shown that this term was applied by both foreigners and indigenous tribes of the sub-continent in varying degrees of flexibility, and not always in an opprobrious manner. This open-endedness in its applicability as a designation has raised for us the fundamental question of analysis in this book namely, understanding the criteria of exclusion adopted by the elite system of knowledge that believed in its inherent superiority. Nonetheless, the antithesis between 'Us' the 'civilized' and 'Them' the 'barbaric' was never rigid. We argue ultimately that despite the permanent existence of the idea of the mleccha as an alien in early India, the process of exclusion was fundamentally a historical process which allowed for these elements to be absorbed into the mainstream of Indian society from time to time. In fact, it was by definition of the 'Self' that the 'Other' were being excluded and we concluded that the reason why the 'Us' as the aryas were continually defining themselves is because the 'Them' as the mlecchas were being continually incorporated.

The Ethnology of India: Antecedents and Ethnic Affinities of Peoples of India
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1994; 8121506239; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
The Ethnology of India is a laudable attempt to understand the variations of the people of India. The book deals in a very systematic way with the problem of the antecedents and ethnic affinities of the people of India in all its complexities. The discussion on the term "ethnology" as distinguishable from "ethnography", derivation and the usage of term race and its different connotations, and the commentary on the racial classification of man proposed from time to time, make an interesting reading. Based on the extensive survey of the literature available till date on the prehistoric and protohistoric human skeletal material from different archaeological sites in India, the author has reconstructed the prehistoric ethnic history of India. All the available views on the ethnic/racial diversity of the people of India too have been critically evaluated. Large anthropomorphic data pertaining to stature, cephalic index, nasal index and facial index collected during the period proximate to Guha's time have been analysed to test the much used Guha's hypothesis regarding the racial affinities of the people of India. In the book, the author has lucidly synthesized so far available information and developed a conceptual framework for better understanding of the ethnic diversity of India.

Dalit Women Speak Out: Caste, Class and Gender Violence in India
Zubaan/Atlantic Publishers & Distributors Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8189884697; Hardcover; New; New; 
The right to equality regardless of gender and caste is a fundamental right in India. However, the Indian government has acknowledged that institutional forces arraigned against the right are powerful and shape people?s mindsets to accept pervasive gender and caste inequality. This is no more apparent then when one visits Dalit women living in their caste-segregated localities. Vulnerably positioned at the bottom of India?s gender, caste and class hierarchies, Dalit women experience the outcome of severly imbalanced social, economic and political power equations in terms of endemic caste-class-gender discrimination and violence. The study presents an analytical overview of the complexities of systemic violence that Dalit women face through an analysis of 500 Dalit Women?s narratives across four states. Excerpts of these narratives are utilized to illustrate the wider trends and patterns of different manifestations of violence against Dalit women. The study calls for the implementation of comprehensive preventive and punishment measures to eradicate caste-class-gender discrimination and violence against Dalit women in both public and private life, in conjunction with measures to fulfill their human rights.

Power Realignments in Asia: China, India and the United States
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8178299488; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
China’s emergence as a great power is transforming the world, affecting its security, economy and physical environment. Power Realignments in Asia: China, India and the United States explores the impact of China’s rise on relations among China, India and the United States. The topics covered in the collection span traditional security issues—political-military affairs and military modernization—to new challenges posed by rapid and deep economic integration, to global issues like energy security and environmental degradation accompanying rapid economic growth. Each of these issues affects the triangular dynamic among China, India and the United States. A special feature of this volume is that it is an informed assessment of an under-researched theme—China’s complex role in simultaneously promoting and inhibiting Indo-U.S. engagement. It examines the many shades of strategic ambiguity, reflected most recently in China’s response to the historic Indo-U.S. civil nuclear initiative. This work will be an important resource for all those interested in Asia’s security politics, the American response to the rise of China and India and the changing dynamic of Asian balance of power.

Towards A Buddisht Social Philosophy
Kalpaz Publications/Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789351280798; Hardcover; New; New; 
Towards a Buddhist Social Philosophy,is a welcome addition to the growing literature of engaged Buddhism. The author has gone to the sources in the Pali Canon, and gleaned traces of sources of social concern in the earliest teachings of the Buddha. His ministry spanned the ancient Indian kingdoms like Kashi, Koshal and Magadh, and he was aware of the problems of life in society. How to live with others? Buddhist moral thought flowers in a non-solipsistic universal where there are others, and we are afflicted with existential traits such as attachment, hatred and delusion. All disharmonies arise from these three so-called non-virtuous propensities, and by adopting a therapeutic method the Buddha sought to settle the issues of disunity, disharmony and discrimination. Through the ten chapters, the author has raised issues pertaining to contemporary concern, social and political, Marxism in Buddhist societies in Asia, neo-Buddhism of Ambedkar, etc. There is much that is novel and daring in the analysis of issues, and deserves to be perused by all serious readers, students and reasearchers interested in the role of the Buddhist world-view in modern India.Printed Pages: 160. 106173

Knowing a Negative Fact: Anupalabdhi
New Bharatiya Book Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2001; 818741829X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The present work is devoted to an important factor of Indian Epistemology. Just as a positive one negative fact is also a 'fact' as it is enumerated as a category. A negative fact is a prameya which is known through some Pramana. Some philosophers think that it is known through perception or inference. But the Advaitins and Mimamsakas have accepted Anupalabdhi as a separate source of knowing. An effort has been made to criticise the views of the Naiyayikas and Buddhists and to substantiate the Advaita and Mimamsa position with some independent arguments.Printed Pages: 148. 104056

Economics and Its Stories
Social Science Press and Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8187358556; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Economics and its Stories demystifies technical terminology and goes to the heart of the matter. The narrative of the book starts with the birth of economics from societal anxieties of pre-industrial Europe. It then follows up its growth into a self-conscious and assertive discipline. Along with the account, Amal Sanyal, with his characteristic lucidity of style, is able to breathe life into the colourful 18th, 19th and 20th century gurus such as Smith, Ricardo, Marx, Walras, Keynes. The narrative strings together the events and traditions of the era of these mentors with the economics they developed and controversies around them. In the process the book explains the concepts that are indispensable for understanding our economic world today. Economics and its stories has chapters on the theory of markets; market failure and the role of the government; the labour market and unemployment; money and finance; international economics and globalisation; and economic development. The book should appeal to the interested reader as well as students of economics. Printed Pages: 260. 037302

1342 Amal Shib Pathak
Kama Samuha of Sri Anant Kavi
Chaukhambha Sanskrit Sansthan; New Delhi, India; 2008; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Ananta's Kama Samuha appears on page 358 Vol III. Of New Catalogus Catalogorum. It is a later day work on Kama Shashtra. Its distinguishing features are description of seasons, description of each and every limb of female body, besides the core topics of erotics, and lastly, the description of detachment from worldly pleasures i.e. 'Vairagya'. These topics have been touched upon by many poets of Sanskrit literature over the centuries. However, it is Ananta who has brought these within the fold of a work on Kama Shashtra. Poetic description of female body might have got impetus from the decadent society of his times, which was later on picked up by poets of Hindi literature during Riti Kala which was characterized by of the smimilarly and A Few other verses in this work which remind us of Amir Khusro (13th cen. A.D.) seem to take their origin from the then taste of the royalty and the elite.Besides these features it has a large number of verses taken from earlier poets, which could Qualify this work as an Anthology but for its focus on erotics.Printed Pages: 272. 100551

Chaukhambha Publications; New Delhi, India; 2009; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Growth and Development of erotic literature in India went through Vedic references to female beauty, erotic s, and sex-dialogues of Yam-Yami & others etc. Earnest pursuit of knowledge on sexual matters appeared in the Upanishadic period. The fruition of this came from the tradition of Nandi, Svetaketu etc. Later on, scientific pursuit of sexual knowledge was over shadowed by erotic poetry. Commented upon by Anandavardhan on a different context it upholds the intrinsic poetic excellence of these erotis poems vide.Printed Pages: 77. 100577

In this book, Radha Ma, "a totally free being", cogently answers a wide variety of devotees' questions covering the whole field of Advaita Vedanta and Self Realization, often referring to Sri Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi whom she clearly loves. Questions are posed by several different intelligent persistent interrogators, and virtually the whole range of issues concerning the crucial tachings of Enlightenment and spiritual practice are covered in these compelling satsang dialogues. She answers each questioner with unfailing accuracy according to his or her needs, but in such a way thatwe may all learn and benefit from her eloquent prescriptions, advice and guidance. This book is a treasure chest filled with many precious jewels set in the pure gold of the non-dual Advaitic truth.Same way, the questions of the seekers. The questions may look similar; but the source of these questions and the maturity of the seekers are different. So there can not be a common teaching. Every question has to be dealt in a totally different way depending on the questioner."Printed Pages: 267. 101285

Indian Temples
Agam Kala Prakashan; New Delhi, India; 2016; 817320165X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 19 x 25 Cm 
The Indian Temple is a unique institution and its development from almost the fifth century A.D. onwards is a fascinating tale. It furnishes material for reconstructing the religious history of India and also casts a spell on the student of art and architecture. It is in the temple - abode of the God –that the beauty and sublimity of divine experience meet so as to create a feeling of ananda (unalloyed joy). The function of the temple is to facilitate the union between the living being (Jiva) and the universal spiritual ground (Brahman) personified in the anthropomorphic God whose dwelling is in the temple. The temple was the spiritual centre from which religious and social life was regulated.Styles of temples throughout India have been discussed. Nagara, Vesara and Dravida temples have explained. Temples from Jammu and Kashmir to Kerala have been described. But to appreciate Indian art to the full, one must study the temples that Indian ideas and local genius built in Greater India which was renamed as South-east Asia after the II World War in 1945. Angkor Wat in Cambodia the great Hindu complex of Brambanan in Java (Indonesia,) Ayutthya in Thailand, three groups of temples in Vietnam, Hindu-Buddhist temples in Bali (Indonesia) where Siva and Buddha are considered brothers!, Myanmar having more than 2000 red-brick temples and monuments in the city of Pagan, etc. are the examples of Indian art in Greater India which students of art and architecture should study to understand Indian art to the full. These books will be useful to general readers, professional and students.Printed Pages: 199 with 75 b/w illustrations. 106208

The present work gives a very comprehensive coverage of its subject matters, namely Phonology and Morphology of Panjabi. Part One: Phonology deals at great length with the phonemes of the language, their phonetic description, distribution, their clustering habits and sandhi rules or morphophonemics. Both the segmental and suprasegmental phonemes are listed and discussed at length. Part Two: Morphology deals with both derivation and inflection. After a classification of morphemes and morphs into various classes, the morphological word is discussed, followed by classes of stems leading to derivation and compound formation. Suffixes of derivation are listed with their meanings and numerous examples. There is hardly any topic within its scope that it has not treated at length and in minute detail. It is a first ever attempt at analysis of Panjabi intonation or phrase melody into its phonological constituents. Its exemplary thoroughness is certain to make a significant contribution to a systematic knowledge of the Panjabi language. It will be of great interest to everyone concerned whether with Panjabi language or with general linguistics. Printed Pages: 388. 000426

The Heart of Buddhist Philosophy-Dinnaga and Dharmakirti
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8121501210; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 14 Cms x 23 Cms 
This is an interesting and exciting book in showing how modern scholarship misunderstood three great Sautrantika critical philosophers. If the evidence adduced in this book is correct, then the history of Buddhist philosophy, fifth century onward, has to be rewritten. Also new studies and translationsare implied of all the works of Dinnaga and Dharmakirti. The author sheds a new light, taking into consideration the views of ancient and modern scholars, on many complex and polemic issues of the Buddhist philosophy. The research is based on the discovery of the lost manuscripts of Dharmakirti by Rahula Sankrtyayana and it can be considered to be a corrective to Stcherbatsky's Buddhist Logic which is the heart of Buddhist philosophy. Stcherbatsky recognised this treasure of critical philosophy as "the most excellent achievement of Indian mind" which has further been evaluated in this book. Printed Pages: 184. 021942

Lotus Collection/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8174369880; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
When the first world war raged from 1914 to 1918, hundreds of thousands troops fought valiantly and millions of lives were lost. Much has been written about the allies (Britain, France and other European powers, Russia, the United States, Canada) battles with the opposing central powers (Germany, Austria - Hungary, Italy, Turkey) but few know that 1.38 million men from India were also sent to various theatres of war. As many as seven Indian expeditionary forces fought battles far from home. Whether it was the damp, flat fields of Flanders or the burning sands of Mesopotamia, the rocky, cold and windy hills of Gallipoli or unhealthy uplands and stifling jungles of East Africa, Indian soldiers left indelible imprints of their heroism, winning world-wide acclaim. For the first time, this book fills in the abysmal gap in the records of the war. Drawn from archives, regimental histories and other sources, this book tells the story of the tremendous contribution of the Indian corps to the victory of the allied forces.

1374 Amarinder Singh & Lt. General Tajindar Shergill (Authors)
The Monsoon War: 1965 India-Pakistan War (Young Officers Reminisce)
Lustre Press/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 9789351941507; Hardcover; New; New; 
When Pakistan first attacked in September 1965, the main objective of the GOC-in-C of the Western Command, Lieutenant General Harbakhsh Singh, was not to cede a single square inch of Indian land to the enemy. And despite the valour and strategic brilliance of the Pakistan Army and Air Force, the Indian Armed Forces, through sheer strength of will, emerged triumphant – sometimes even in battles where it first seemed that all was lost. The Monsoon War is an honest and gritty eye-witness account of the 1965 war, as it happened, retold by two men who fought it. Amarinder Singh, who served as ADC to the man of the moment, Lieutenant General Harbakhsh Singh; and Lieutenant General Tajindar Shergill, who was then Troop Leader, 1 Troop C Squadron Deccan Horse, and was taken prisoner of war after a forlorn hope tank attack. Their no-holds-barred narrative brings to life the various battles fought, and the human stories of the many brave soldiers who fought for both countries. A landmark war that witnessed one of world history’s most noteworthy tank battles (the Battle of Phillora), the events of 1965 are remembered as among the most significant victories of the modern Indian Armed Forces. The victory not only served as a morale booster to the nation as a whole, but is also a testament to the leadership of Harbakhsh Singh, who had over the course of the War even implemented an effective solution to the Kashmir territorial dispute. However, over the course of peace talks between the then Indian Prime Minister, Lal Bahadur Shastri and President Ayub Khan of Pakistan, many of Harbakhsh Singh’s tactical solutions were waylaid – which is perhaps one of the many reasons why the Kashmir dispute still has the potential to sour the relationship between the two great nations.

The Country of First Boys
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2015; 019945325X; Hardcover; New; New; 
How do deprivations related to class, caste and gender interrelate? Why are our political leaders so good in saying what should be done without doing anything much about them? How should we think about Sanskrit and ancient India without adding religious colour? Why is it important to revive Nalanda, the world`s oldest university? The Country of First Boys is Amartya Sen`s intellectual journey through the past and present to seek an understanding of India`s history and the demands of its future. The themes of these essays include the hardened and extreme nature of inequality in India and what can be done about it. One of the many rewards of good schooling - denied to most Indians - includes the understanding that India is an integral part of a world civilization. Always sensitive to global communication and interaction, India`s own contributions vary from the development of a multiplicity of astronomically reasoned calendars and the invention of games like chess to the establishment of the foundations of several branches of modern mathematics. In this collection, Sen examines justice, identity, deprivation, inequalities, gender politics, education, the media and the importance of getting your priorities right. These are accessible yet pioneering essays that hold the kernel of many of his seminal works.

Dobbins, who had overseen nation-building efforts in Somalia, Haiti, Bosnia, and Kosovo, to war-torn Afghanistan to help the Afghans assemble a successor government to the Taliban. From warlords to exiled royalty, from turbaned tribal chieftains to elegant émigré intellectuals, Ambassador Dobbins introduces a range of colorful Afghan figures competing for dominance in the new Afghanistan. His firsthand account of the post–9/11 American diplomacy also reveals how collaboration within Bush’s war cabinet began to break down almost as soon as major combat in Afghanistan ceased. His insider’s memoir recounts how the administration reluctantly adjusted to its new role as nation-builder, refused to allow American soldiers to conduct peacekeeping operations, opposed dispatching international troops, and shortchanged Afghan reconstruction as its attention shifted to Iraq. In After the Taliban, Dobbins probes the relationship between the Afghan and Iraqi ventures. He demonstrates how each damaged the other, with deceptively easy success in Afghanistan breeding overconfidence and then the latter draining essential resources away from the initial effort. Written by America’s most experienced diplomatic troubleshooter, this important new book is for readers looking for insights into how government really works, how diplomacy is actually conducted, and most important why the United States has failed to stabilize either Afghanistan or Iraq.Printed Pages: 180. 103221

Musical Modes in Visual Forms: A Journey Through the Creative Minds
New Bharatiya Book Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8183151736; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Music and rendering are the faculties of creative imagination and keen perception that help the mind to grow. Man has expressed liberally through various mediums to give a vent to his aspiration and urges in the past and in The Times now. The play of music was taken as the Sutra of life. Man tends to follow the rhythm inculcated in him as a child. This tempo moves with man in poetry, dance, theatre, drama, painting, music, play of instruments, sculptures, architecture, etc. Rhythm in both music and Painting energizes the person and this pulse and beat is experienced many a time as that transcendental energy that a dancer feels in the thumping of feet, a poet experiences in writing of words, a musician feels in plucking the strings of his instrument and the artist feels in that stroke of color that starts his painting. 'Ragas have the power to create certain mental effects and each Raga is supposed to have an emotional value which can be called the 'ethos' of the Raga. When the Raga-Ragims are sung or are rendered in painting form it is therapeutic to both who hear the music and the one who looks at the art work, experience a cleansing of mind thereby providing peace and tranquility. Both mediums supersede the body where the time ceases for the musician, artist and the spectator alike and the experience is of complete detachment or the understanding of the conscious and the subconscious mind. The experience is cathartic, liberating and energizing. No Doubt that the coming generations of artists would continue to find the musical modes and symbolisms exciting in the future also. They will be inspired to use them in their own paintings. Fuelled by their young, vibrant artistic imaginations, music will find a more experimental place in their works and make them more sonorous and perhaps vibrate to newer musical rhythms! 101256

1393 Ameeta Mulla Wattal (Ed.)
The Learning Landscape: Perspectives of School Principles on Education
Wisdom Tree; New Delhi, India; 8183284493; Hardcover; New; New; 
The secrets of natural phenomena and the enigmatic behaviour of the human mind are perhaps the two most intriguing aspects of our evolutionary process. In trying to unravel the mysteries of mind and matter, many seekers of truth, in their own chosen way, have discovered or created new pathways. Mathematics emerged as the language of nature, giving a scientific expression to its laws and then providing answers in a most logical and rational manner. Gautama Buddha discovered and propounded Vipassana, a meditation technique that not only explains the behavioural pattern of mind in entirety, but also shows a path to purge it of its negativities in order to lead a wholesome and peaceful life. This captivating book explores the singularity between Vipassana and Mathematics. It explores their parallel yet intertwining journeys—from action to reaction; from observation to experimentation and from finiteness to infinity—in the quest to distil all knowledge to reach the Truth, and nothing but the Truth.Printed Pages: 256. 106740
