1304 Ali M. Ansari
Confronting Iran
Hurst & Company; London, UK; 1850658099; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Islamic Republic of Iran's ongoing nuclear programme has provoked a major and menacing crisis in its realtions with the US and other Western powers. Ali Ansari argues that crisis is a symptom of broader, long-term fissures in US-Iranian realtions, and in Confronting Iran he seeks to disentangle the myths that are at the bottom of this gulf in understanding, whihc is compounded by the nature of the states, their foreign policy establishments and the fraught history of their relations since the 1979 revolution. Ansari reviews the historical antecedents of the crisis, in particular US-Iranian realtions since 9/11 and attempts by the EU to broker a settlement acceptable to all parties. He argues that the European position has been dictated as much by its relations with the US in the wake of the invasion of Iraq as by domestic politics in Iran, and he concludes by assessing the election of Mahmud Ahmadinejad as President and its likely impact on the view from Tehran and Washington. This account of a potential flashpoint in realtions between the Muslim world and the West could not be more timely. Contents Introduction 1. Imperial Hubris 2. 1953 3. 1979 4.

Lives of Early Buddhist Nuns: Biographies as History
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 019945907X; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Based on new translations of Pali texts and rare sources, Lives of Early Buddhist Nuns analyses the portrayal of women in the Pali canon and commentaries. Focusing on the differences between canonical and commentarial literature, the author goes beyond the practice of using the commentaries to merely enhance the understanding of the Pali canon; she emphasizes the differing social and historical milieus out of which these genres of literature were born. Assessing each genre on its own terms, the work demonstrates that the Pali canon, contrary to how it has been presented previously, is more favourable to women. The first part of the volume contains biographies of the six best-known Buddhist nuns who were considered to have been direct disciples of the Buddha. These biographies throw light on gender relations as they evolved in the early centuries of Buddhism in India. The life stories also serve as the foundation for discussion of Buddhist women in the second part. From notions of beauty and adornment to family, class, and marriage, various themes in the biographies are explored in this work, and through this exploration the changing form of Buddhism in early India is captured.

Simla Village Tales
Pilgrims Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2004; 817769118X; Reprint; Paperback; New; New; 5.5 x 8.5 Inches 
One Cannot sojourn for long in the East without hearing strange stories, all of which are vouched for by the natives. Most would make one's blood run cold, but they are irresistibly fascinating. Filled with pathos but almost always showing that every cloud has its silver lining, these tales carry the reader into the mythical past that was India. The majority of these tales have the raw transparency of folk art, whilst others are fashioned with uncommon sophistication. Many of the stories have been passed down by word of mouth. Long before the radio and television ever existed, People spend hours around fires telling stories for entertainment. First published in 1906, Simla Village Tales captivates and preserves some of the old folk tales of a long gone era. This new version of these same stories will show that little of their underlying meaning and significance has changed. Printed Pages: 146. 002353

Ganesa: A Monograph on the Elephant-Faced God: with an introduction by Alfred Foucher
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1992; 81-215-0377-X; Reprint; Cloth; New; New; 22 Cms x 29 Cms 
The most universally adored of all the Hindu gods, Ganesa, the 'Lord of the Ganas' also occupies a pride of place among the gods of the Hindu pantheon. It was because of his popularity as a magnificent god that he was known by the various epithets Vinayaka, Vighnesvara, Siddhidata, Heramba, etc., which stress his benevolent nature and his other names viz., Vakra-tunda, Ekadanta, Akhu-ratha, Lambodara, Gajanana, etc. connote his unusual physical and other attributes. In her illuminating study, Ganesa, A Monograph on the Elephant-faced God, Alice Getty has covered not only the various iconographical features of this god, but has marshalled all the available evidence and shown how the cult of Ganapati originated and spread into not only the various parts of India but into foreign lands as well. The book is divided into eight chapters besides an Introduction by Alfred Foucher. The first four chapters deal respectively with the Origin of Ganesa and Ganesa in Indian literature, Ganesa in Iconography from the Hindu texts and images, Ganesa in Hindu sculpture and paintings and Ganesa in Buddhism. The remaining four chapters deal with Ganesa in the countries neighbouring India such as Burma, Siam, Indo-China, Java, Borneo, China and Japan. In this important work of scholarship and research, Alice Getty has collected a mass of carefully arranged information on Ganesa. This monograph is, therefore, indispensable as a work of reference for the scholars interested in Indian iconography and religion. Carefully selected illustrations, including text-figures, colour and half-tone plates, bibliography, texts of Sanskrit, Tibetan and Japanese references glossary and index add to the usefulness of the volume. Printed Pages: 131 with 8 text illustrations, 105 halftone and 2 four-colour illustrations. 032057

Becoming Asia: Change and Continuity in Asian International Relations Since World War II
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2012; 9789382264101; Hardcover; New; New; 
At the conclusion of World War II Asia was hardly more than a geographic expression. Yet today we recognize Asia as a vibrant and assertive region fully transformed from the vulnerable nation-states that emerged following the Second World War. The transformation was by no means an inevitable one but the product of two key themes that have dominated Asia’s international relations since 1945 – the competition between the United States and the Soviet Union to enlist the region’s states as assets in the Cold War and the struggle of nationalistic Asian leaders to develop the domestic support to maintain power and independence in a dangerous international context. Becoming Asia provides a comprehensive systemic account of how these themes played out in Asian affairs during the postwar years covering not only East Asia but South and Central Asia as well. In addition to exploring the interplay between nationalism and Cold War bipolarity during the first postwar decades authors Alice Lyman Miller and Richard Wich chart the rise of largely export-led economies that are increasingly making the region the global center of gravity and document efforts in the ongoing search for regional integration.Printed Pages: 330. 101467

The Oxford Dictionary of Musical Works
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0198610203; First Edition; Paperback; New; 13 Cms x 20 Cms 
Anyone who listens to or plays classical music often wants to put the pieces they encounter in context - to check information ranging from who wrote the piece, or the date of its first performance, to how it acquired its title, or whether it was commissioned for a specific person or occasion. General dictionaries of music only cover a limited number of musical works, and include very little detail. The new Oxford Dictionary of Musical Works provides short articles on over 1750 musical works from earliest times to the present day, providing a comprehensive but handy reference. Entries encompass a broad spectrum of genres - from opera, ballet, choral and vocal music, orchestral, chamber and instrumental pieces, to nicknamed works, collections, national anthems, hymn tunes, and traditional melodies. Each entry outlines the genre to which the piece belongs; the librettist or author of the text, including any literary source; the number of acts or movements; the scoring - including details of the instrumentalists and vocalists needed to perform the piece; how it came to be commissioned; the place and date of its first performance; any subsequent arrangements or revisions; and any additional important or entertaining information.

Standing in the Margins: Representation and Electoral Reservation in India
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0195672143; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
The Indian Constitution has made special provisions for the electoral representation of the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes, members of social groups seen to be at the lowest rungs of socio-economic and ritual hierarchy. The reservation of a number of constituencies from which only they can contest elections is intended to place these otherwise marginalized groups in the highest levels of elected government. This book examines the principles and practice of this mode of group representation, both in the historical context in which it was introduced and the current dynamics of the system of electoral politics. It looks at the motivation behind such measures and attempts an assessment of its impact on the political system and the structure of socio-economic inequality. By analysing unique survey data and the social and institutional contexts in which reservation operates in India, Alistair McMillan shows how the SCs/STs continue to be discriminated against in socio-economic d evelopment and are also subjected to political manipulation by the process through which reserved constituencies are allotted. He argues that while electroral reservation has little impact on the voting patterns of SCs/STs, it exerts a negative influence on participation in general. The system does provide symbolic representation, but evidence for any real substantive benefit is limited. Erudite and comprehensive, this volume will be of immense interest to scholars and students of politics, sociology, history, and Dalit studies. It will also appeal to NGOs, journalists, and policy-makers. Printed Pages: 350 with numerous tables and 2 maps. 013589

As developing nations across the globe struggle to find effective means of reaching out to their hungry , they need knowledge about alternative ways of addressing this issue. It is useful to know how other nations are addressing this problem and the level of success achieved. More cost effective and efficient systems need to be looked into. It is difficult to find all the relevant information about food security schemes in one place. It is even more difficult to find such information about many nations in just one source. This book is prepared as a reference book for the stake holders interested in the policy analysis of food security schemes. Each chapter gives relevant food security indicators for that nation, the economic history and its developmental context, and the past as well as current food security schemes. Simple statistical tools like mean and standard deviation, regression and paired t test are used to interpret the data., About The Author:- Alka Parikh, PhD in Development Economics from Cornell University , USA, is working as an Associate Professor at D.A.

The Tale Retold: Selected Stories
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2009; 014306651X; First Edition; Paperback; New; 13 Cms x 20 Cms 
The Tale Retold is as much about story-telling as it is about finding stories in situations where they may not easily be found. The title story examines with great sympathy the equations between a mother who feels helpless and hopeful in turns, a child who slowly comes to terms with his disability and a society which values ‘soundness’ above all and makes no space for the differently abled. ‘In Quest of a Story’ follows a middle-aged, retired man on his obsessive pursuit of a writer in the hope that he will become a subject of her narrative. A mother writes ‘A Letter to Mrs D’ Souza’, the principal of her daughter’s school, in which she tries to negotiate some space for herself in a society where anything less than complete devotion to one’s children is construed as culpable neglect. Alka Saraogi understands the undercurrents of the human mind and engages easily with the inner worlds of her characters. Her ability to look for the extraordinary within the ordinary and to elegantly shatter seemingly permanent stereotypes makes The Tale Retold an unforgettable collection. Printed Pages: 168. 030354

Andal and Akka Mahadevi: Feminity to Divinity
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8124607168; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Bhakti poetry is an amazing amalgamation of art, music, literature, philosophy, politics, soteriology and mysticism. Andal and Akka Mahadevi: Feminity to Divinity reflects this amalgamation in letter and spirit. Two medieval women, Andal, a ninth-century A’lvar saint-poetess from Tamil Srivaishnavite tradition, and Akka Mahadevi, a twelfth-century Kannada saint-poetess from Virashaivite tradition, with their poetic renderings and life, got elevated to a stature beyond that of saints. This book deals with three major aspects. One, understanding of bhakti in its historical, philosophical and social perspectives. It thus delves on the idea and phenomenon of bhakti, the ancient religions and the evolution of bhakti tradition in south India. Two, it portrays the life of poet-saints Andal and Akka Mahadevi and their chosen path of bhakti. Their poetic renderings — Tiruppavai and Nachiar Tirumo’li of Andal, and vacanas of Akka Mahadevi — have found merit in rituals, theatre, cinema, dance, painting and other arts. The textual analysis of their poetry is done from religious, literary and socio-political angles. Three, it reflects on how the works of these saints have percolated down to the living patterns in modern India; rather it is a dedication to the living traditions in bhakti. This volume also helps to extricate bhakti experience from its mystical aura and make it more accessible to our perceptive faculties. Thus it enthuses the spirit of anyone, be an artist, a poet, a philosopher, or a scholar.Printed Pages: 295. 100405

1340 Alladi Uma, K. Suneetha Rani & D. Murali Manohar (Eds)
English in the Dalit Context
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8125055193; Hardcover; New; New; 
Language does not confine itself to communication alone. It gets closely connected with politics, be it cultural, identity, or international politics. This becomes all the more true in the case of languages that were imported and imposed by colonial powers, and admired and followed by the colonised as the rulers’ language. English in the Dalit Context is set against this backdrop of the politics surrounding English in India. The volume, a collection of 15 essays, brings to the fore a multiplicity of views expressed by Dalit intellectuals and activists on ‘English’ in all its different senses. It also includes essays by non-Dalit scholars who have been long involved with questions of colonial modernity and of the English language in the Dalit context.Printed Pages:192. 101799

English in the Dalit Context

Language does not confine itself to communication alone. It gets closely connected with politics, be it cultural, identity, or international politics. This becomes all the more true in the case of languages that were imported and imposed by colonial powers, and admired and followed by the colonised as the rulers’ language. In India, English has always been an issue of political discourse, be it in pre-independent, postcolonial or globalised India. For the privileged class, English is either a language of achievement or one choice among many other languages. However, for disadvantaged and marginalised Dalits, mastering English promises liberation. English in the Dalit Context is set against this backdrop of the politics surrounding English in India. The volume, a collection of 15 essays, brings to the fore a multiplicity of views expressed by Dalit intellectuals and activists on ‘English’ in all its different senses. It also includes essays by non-Dalit scholars who have been long involved with questions of colonial modernity and of the English language in the Dalit context. The essays deal with issues of English pedagogy, such as English as one of the languages or subjects, English as medium of instruction, entry of Dalit literature into English departments in colleges and universities, and the politics of the English language as a stepping-stone to success in an increasingly globalised world, where market culture promises unlimited opportunities. This important and essential reading will be invaluable for students and scholars of English and caste and Dalit Studies. Printed Pages: 182. 112287

1342 Allahabadia Pran Nath Pankaj & Bhavana Pankaj
Candipathah: Incorporating Sridurgasaptasati (Devimahatmyam) and the Associate Hymns
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8120835573; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Candipatha, a part of the Markandeya Purana, which is one of the eighteen major Puranas, is its most important segment. Apart from Sridurgasaptasati, which forms the core of Candipatha, there are, preceding and succeeding it, several hymns of equal importance and, in the course of its ritual performance, all these hymns, as an integral totality, have to be recited as indicated in this book. Candipatha celebrates the Feminine Power, Durga-Sakti-with her innumerable names, across in this sacred text, represents the quintessential woman. She is the source, substratum and ultimate Life Force. All the gods, men, birds, animals, even demons, all the elements, all moving and stationary objects are but Her fragmental particles. The universe is Her playground as well as Her play. At will, She creates, sustains and dissolves it. In Candipatha we see Her in Her full glory majesty and splendour. As the Mother, She loves and protects Her children and as the invincible Kali, She decimates the forces of evil when they threaten righteousness, peace and Her devotees in the world. The present publication includes, in addition to Sridurgasaptasati and the other associate hymns, a detailed Introductory Essay, which besides discussing the contents and importance of this work and its symbolism, provides a panoramic view of the Mother worship through the millennia. The four appendices include (i) Names, Adjectives, Incarnations, Epithets, etc., of the Mother Goddess (ii) Weapons mentioned in the text and their functions (iii) Glossary of important terms and (iv) the First-line index of Sanskrit verses, chapter-wise.Printed Pages: 484. 102048

The Sangitopanisat Saroddharah of Vacanacarya Sri Sudhakalasa (A Fourteenth Century Text on Music from Western India)
Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts/MLBD; New Delhi, India; 1998; 8120815483; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Sudhakalasa Sa?gitaratnakara is an important medieval text written in 1350 CE. It is attributed to a Jaina scholar, Vacanacarya Sri Sudhakalasa and represents a distinctive western Indian and Jaina stream of musicology. Composed about 100 years subsequent to the great compendium, the Sa?gitaratnakara, there is significant difference in its approach and treatment of the subject. This text stands in an intermediary position between the Sa?gitaratnakara and the later medieval works such as the Nartananir?aya. While epitomizing the Indian phenomenon of an adherence to certain key fundamentals, it unfolds and reveals many processes of interaction and focuses attention on particular aspects of form and technique. It is also an important text for the change it reflects in understanding the Ragas and Raginis assigning gender and visualizing an iconography.Printed Pages: 101611

Krishna Charitra
V & S Publishers; New Delhi, India; 8122310354; Hardcover; New; New; 
Krishna Charitra is a famous Bengali classic where Bankim Chandra endeavours to discover Sri Krishna, the real person, behind centuries of myths and legends. Written in 1886, this was the first instance where the character of Krishna is studied from a pragmatic and questioning perspective. Like his novel Ananda Math, Krishna Charitra originates from Bankim Chandra's passionate feeling of patriotism. He wanted to uphold Sri Krishna as not just a mythological figure, but an ideal Indian character, whom other Indians could look up to. Sri Aurobindo says, Bankim Chandra poured over the Bhagavad Gita and the Vedas striving to catch the deeper and sacred sense of those profound writings. To give that to his countrymen was the strenuous aim of Krishna Charitra. In this translation of Krishna Charitra, several passages of Bankim's academic discussions have been omitted, so as to make it easier for the common reader. Also deleted are the criticisms on the European people that Bankim Chandra includes in his book from time to time. Otherwise, the text strictly follows the structure and the content of the original dissertation. 108674

Mapping the Indo-Pacific Beads vis-a-vis Papanaidupet
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8173055475; Hardcover; New; New; 
Mapping the Indo-Pacific Beads vis-à-vis Papanaidupet is not only about beads, bead production cycle, people involved in their manufacture, and traditional bead users, but also about the most important glass bead city of the world. The archaeological community has spent considerable time and energy in reconstructing ancient cities with bead workshops and has formulated many hypotheses about them. This is the first and last time that a bead city identical to those of 2,500 years old has been recorded ethnographically and visually in full detail. This attempt has captured a visual model for future glass and glass bead researchers. The book discusses the history and context of research on Indian glass, drawing its data from ancient literature, archival and archaeological sources. The rationale of the work is to answer the puzzles raised by archaeological evidence with an ethnoarchaeological approach. Printed Pages: 104. 110411

India: The State of Population 2007
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2008; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
In 1947, India’s population was estimated to be about 345 million. By the 2001 census, it had almost tripled to 1.02 billion, and official projections for July 2007 put it at 1.13 billion. Such rapid growth has powerful implications for social and economic development. This Report, the first of its kind, makes an in-depth study of the levels, trends, patterns, and changes in the size, structure, and distribution of population in India over the past 60 years. It also assesses the impact of government policies and programmes on population growth, and highlights what remains to be done to achieve an optimum quality of life. The issues discussed include: # population growth and distribution # evolution of population policy # family planning # reproductive and child health # status of women # urbanization and migration # population and development integration # government policies and programmes and their impact The Report also measures the progress of Indian states towards National Population Policy goals. This is done by calculating the index of progress in terms of ‘impact indicators’ like total fertility rate, infant mortality rate, maternal mortality ratio, and proportion of girls married before the age of 18 and ‘programme indicators’ like the demand for contraception, extent of safe deliveries and level of child immunization and level of births registration, and outlines strategic options for achieving population stabilization in India. 034003

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.
