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.

In pulsating, polluted Kathmandu, and an idyllic village at the foot of the Himalayas, ‘Doctor Jane’ and her engineer husband Simon hope to make a difference: Jane to fulfil her vision to heal and advocate for the poor, Simon to avert the floods that threaten to devastate the country every monsoon. And even as they take to the Nepali way of life, they find sanity, compassion and joy with baby David, who in England was little more than an ‘interesting case’. A moving, candid story of courage, love and a family’s determination to give their child the best life possible, A Glimpse of Eternal Snows is a must read.Printed Pages: 387. 106495

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

Pohjoinen Herätysliike ja Modernisaation Kipukohdat: Vanhoillislestadiolaisuuden julkisuuskuva Suomessa 1961-1985
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2014; 9529888554; New; 
Vanhoillislestadiolaisuus vaikuttaa suoraan yli sadantuhannen suomalaisen elämään ja välillisesti paljon laajemmin, joten ei ole yhdentekevää, minkälainen on liikkeen julkisuuskuva. Tutkimuksessa analysoidaan liikkeen julkisuuskuvaa Suomessa vuosina 1961?1985, miksi kuvasta tuli sellainen kuin tuli ja miten vanhoillislestadiolaiset itse vaikuttivat liikkeen julkisuuskuvaan. Tutkimusajanjaksolla suomalainen yhteiskunta muuttui voimakkaasti, ja etenkin modernisaatioon liittyneet ilmiöt olivat vieraita vanhoillislestadiolaiselle maailmankatsomukselle. Liikkeen jäsenet yrittivät takertua tiukemmin menneeseen aikaan arvomaailmassaan ja konkreettisissa ratkaisuissaan. Liikkeen tekemät ratkaisut vaikuttivat myös siihen, millainen on vanhoillislestadiolaisuuden julkisuuskuva 2000-luvulla. Printed Pages: 249. 114529

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

Mustan Aukon Blues ja muita ääniä Ulkoavaruudesta
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2016; 9525985350; New; 
Mustien aukkojen törmäys ei valaise taivasta, vaan rysäyksessä vapautunut valtava energia leviää avaruutta vavisuttavina gravitaatioaaltoina. Ainoa todiste törmäyksestä on soiva avaruus. Albert Einstein ennusti gravitaatioaaltojen olemassaolon jo sata vuotta sitten, mutta vasta kilometrien mittaisilla LIGO-interferometreillä ne onnistuttiin ensimmäistä kertaa havaitsemaan suoraan. Teoksessaan Mustan aukon blues ja muita ääniä ulkoavaruudesta Janna Levin päästää LIGOn aikaansaaneet ihmiset ääneen ja luo vivahteikkaan ja elävän kertomuksen vaikeasti tavoitettavien aaltojen etsinnästä. Kirja paljastaa ajatusleikistä kummunneen löytöretken inhimillisen puolen, jossa niin politiikka, raha kuin henkilösuhteet näyttelevät suurta osaa. Printed Pages: 236. 114334

Bland motiven finns allt från porträtt, djur och veterinärsysslor till biltävlingar, flygplan och skärgårdsliv. Åströms motivval är ofta överraskande och fångar ögonblick av lekfullhet och allvar.

Isännän, Jumalan ja rehellisten miesten edessä: Vallankäyttö ja virkamiesten toimintaympäristöt satakuntalaisissa maaseutuyhteisöissä 1600-luvun Jälkipuoliskolla
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2009; 9522220620; New; 
Tutkimuksen kohteena on kuningatar Kristiinan 1651 sotapäällikkö Gustaf Hornille läänittämä Porin kreivikunta. Läänittäminen merkitsi valta- ja veronkanto-oikeuksien siirtämistä kruunulta aateliselle. Tutkimuksessa tarkastellaan suurläänityksen kautta paikallista vallankäyttöä: virkamiesten toimintaa, talonpoikien ja virkamiesten välisiä suhteita, paikallista sosiaalista hierarkiaa sekä kreivikunnan suhteita toisiin paikallisiin toimijoihin, erityisesti kruunuun. Kun läänityksen veronkanto ei siirtynyt kokonaan kreivikunnan vastuulle, se joutui toisinaan katkeriin riitoihin kruunun kanssa. Printed Pages: 260. 115660

Mankby: A Deserted Medieval Village on the Coast of Southern Finland
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2016; 9526732979; New; 
In August 1556 a village of six farms was abandoned in Espoo in Southern Finland. Mankby, as the village was called, had been a prosperous dwelling place since the 13th century, but all this changed when king Gustav Vasa decided to found a royal demesne nearby and incorporated the fields of Mankby in the new estate. During a rapid desertion process, the peasants moved to new homes, and the old village plot became uninhabited until this day. During seven years of excavations, 2007–2013, archaeologists from Helsinki University and Espoo City Museum have unveiled remains of the village of Mankby. Mankby. A Deserted Medieval Village on the Coast of Southern Finland presents the results of this research, shedding light on many different aspects of medieval life. The main excavated structures, the results of the scientific analyses and the artefacts found during the excavations are presented in this volume, as well as the medieval settlement structure of the region and its prehistoric predecessors. Mankby has shown to be one of the best preserved village sites in Southern Finland, and the research on this site has updated our view on medieval peasants and their life conditions. The studies discuss new aspects on dwellings, contacts, trade, subsistence, diet and social structures. The village and its rich find material reflects the historic phenomena of its time: the medieval Swedish colonisation of the Finnish coast, the influence of the Hanseatic League and the dawn of early modern society. The results of the research in Mankby offer both micro-historic glimpses into the past and insights into the larger picture of history. Printed Pages: 192. 114099

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

Classical Greek Architectural Design
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2013; 9526721160; New; 
The aim of this book is to change the prevalent paradigm in Greek architectural design studies: detecting patterns in a set of measurements is to a high degree a statistical question and scholars who ignore this fact risk confusing the discussion rather than clarifying it. The foundations on which Greek architectural design analyses are built are not necessarily as stable as is often taken for granted. Recognising complex patterns in data sets requires expertise both in the field of the study in question and quantitative methods. The emphasis of this monograph is on methodology.

Tarkastelu kohdentuu valtioiden maankäytön suunnittelun, luonnonsuojelun toteuttamisen ja metsälainsäädännön keskeisiin ohjausmekanismeihin. Printed Pages: 306. 116086

Dokumentin Utopiat
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2015; 9522224006; New; 
Sodanjälkeisen ajan dokumenttielokuviin tallentuivat politiikan kuohut, suuret vaikuttajat ja jälleenrakennuksen ponnistukset. 1960-luvulla televisio tyhjensi elokuvateatterit uutisfilmien katsojista, ja tuore toimittaja-dokumentaristien polvi nousi sähköisen ruudun vaikuttajiksi. Myöhemmin dokumenttielokuva muuttui kansainväliseksi ja sai sille omistettuja festivaaleja. Dokumentin utopiat on suomalaisen dokumenttielokuvan perushistoria ja dokumenttikulttuurin läpileikkaus 1940-luvulta 1980-luvun loppuun. Printed Pages: 679. 114967

Filmi poikki...: Poliittinen elokuvasensuuri Suomessa 1939-1947
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 1999; 9517101031; New; 
Sotien ja kriisien olosuhteissa elokuva sekä viihdytti että vaikutti poliittisesti. Elokuvien poliittista sanomaa arvioi etukäteen Suomessakin elokuvasensuuri. Jari Sedergrenin tutkimus pureutuu aiemmin tutkimattomaan elokuvasensuurin maailmaan. Teos paljastaa, mitä suomalaiset eivät saaneet nähdä valkokankailla kriisi- ja sota-aikoina. Elokuvasensuurin vuoksi elokuvia katseltiin talvisodan alla jopa mykkänä. Moskovan rauhan aikana tunteita kuumensi Englannin ja Saksan propagandasota. Jatkosodassa amerikkalaiselokuvat yritettiin kieltää kokonaan. Miksi Valtion filmitarkastamo, tiedotuslaitokset, päämaja ja ulkoministeriö halusivat sensuroida elokuvia? Miten sodanaikaiseen suomalaispropagandaan suhtauduttiin sodan jälkeen? Harjoitettiinko itsesensuuria? Ja entä kun valvontakomissio ja Neuvostoliitto kiinnostuivat elokuvista.

Dokumentin ytimessä
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2009; 9522221066; New; 
Dokumentin ytimessä kytkee ensimmäisen kerran dokumenttielokuvan monet merkitykset aate-, kulttuuri- ja poliittiseen historiaan.

Teos esittelee keskeiset lyhytelokuvayhtiöt ja itsenäisyyden alkuvuosikymmenien kuvaustoiminnan suojeluskunnissa, puolustusvoimissa sekä valtion ohjauksessa. Lajihistoriallinen tarkastelu suuntautuu matkailuelokuvaan, kansatieteelliseen elokuvaan, teollisuus-, uutis- ja propagandaelokuvaan. Printed Pages: 537. 115003

The Transformation of a Tourist Destination: Theory and Case Studies on the Production of Local Geographies in Tourism in Finnish Lapland
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2001; 9514259750; New; 
The process of transformation of tourist destinations is examined by summarising the theoretical arguments and geographical context of a research project aimed at understanding in a theoretically informed way the nature of tourist destinations – tourism regions – and how they emerge and change with time. Destinations are approached as socially constructed spatial units that evolve through certain discourses and discursive practices, which are conceptualised through a discourse of development and a discourse of region in the context of this work. The present thesis is based on six previously published articles, some of the empirical results contained in which are briefly summarised or reitarated here as statements of the main results and illustrative examples in the context of the theoretical considerations.

Finland and the United States, 1917-1919
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2000; 951746178X; New; 
The Finnish proclamation of independence, the outbreak of the Finnish civil war and, later, the drawing of Finland into the sphere of influence created by Berlin in Central Europe caused Finnish-American relations to stagnate and ultimately to be frozen for several months. The State Department considered whether Finland should be recognised as one of enemies of the United States, while the Finnish government showed no desire to activate political contacts between Helsinki and Washington. The reorientation of Finnish policy created by the military defeat of Germany created conditions for the gradual stabilisation of Finnish-American economic and, later, political relations.

Bridge Across The Rivers: Partition Memories from the Two Punjabs
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2017; 9789385285738; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The history of the Partition is neither singular nor static. It appears different from different perspectives. The past is never over, its presence looms large over our presents.The Partition narrative exceeds the bounds of history, to the large scale exodus often referred to as the third partition—most painful and long-lasting in its emotional, political and social contexts. It impacted both collective and individual identities. In some ways it rendered the individual invisible with identity being transformed into a stereotype which evoked conventional patterns of behaviour. The heartache and anguish of divided families and frustrated, failed individual lives lay heavy on the joy of a much coveted freedom.Oral histories break the hegemony of the written. Fictional narratives offering psychological insights and a history of relationships move beyond facts to cultural constructs, the psychology of fear, and the uncertainty and bewilderment of the moment. They enter individual psyches to explore morality and ethics, guilt and regret.This collection seeks to debate issues and throw light on discourses other than those of violence and darkness, working with a chronology, located in time. The narratives unfold expectation, hope and harmony, flight and violence, psychological fallouts, gender issues and questions of guilt and reflection. As the stories trace the shifts in emotions and focus on individual wills, the undercurrents of cultural oneness form a counter discourse. Printed Pages: 202. 113919
