Vishnu: Hinduism's Blue-Skinned Savior
Mapin Publishing; Ahmedabad, India; 2011; 8189995480; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 25 x 29 Cm 
Vishnu - one of Hinduism's most important and powerful deities - is the great Preserver, vanquishing those who seek to destroy the balance of the universe. In Hindu legend, Vishnu descends to earth in many manifestations, known as avatars, to fight powerful demons and to save his devotees. The avatars range in form from Varaha the boar to Parashurama the Brahmin warrior, and in character from Narasimha the ferocious half-man half-lion, to Krishna the charismatic prince-cowherd. The legends of Vishnu have inspired some of the greatest art, literature, and ritual traditions in India. Essays by noted historians of South Asian art delve deeply into the regional and sectarian traditions of Vishnu worship in India. Illustrations and discussions of almost 200 works of art, in a wide range of media and borrowed from collections around the world, reveal the rich diversity of India's art and religious culture. Printed Pages: 296 with 230 colour illustrations. 036559

The Art of Romance: Mills & Boon and Harlequin Cover Designs
Prestel; Germany; 2008; 3791341227; First Edition; Paperback; New; 19 x 24 Cm 
Since 1908 readers have been finding respite from the vagaries of everyday life in the pages of novels published by Mills & Boon. Now part of the Harlequin group, the world""s largest romance publisher, the company has published thousands of titles, each with its own distinctive jacket art. Part of a centenary celebration, this collection of some two hundred Mills & Boon covers offers a fascinating visual record of how our perceptions of romance, love, and drama have evolved over the years. With titles such as Romance Goes Tenting, Egyptian Honeymoon, and Beware the Beast, these novels"" contents have changed dramatically as women defined their roles in the 1920s and 1930s; searched for heroes during World War II; strove for careers in the 1950s; engaged in free love in the 1960s; yearned for sexual emancipation in the 1970s and 1980s; and ultimately learned a lot about self-reliance while waiting for Prince Charming to show up. These social transformations are reflected in the covers, chronologically arranged as full-color plates. An introduction charts the changing themes of the novels and explores the reasons behind the enduring popularity of the romance novel. Printed Pages: 256 with 250 colour illustrations. 037043

Mutual Casuality in Buddhism and General Systems Theory: The Dharma of Natural Systems
Sri Satguru Publications; Delhi, India; 1995; 8170304210; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This Book brings important new dimensions to the interface between contemporary Western Science and ancient Eastern wisdom. Here for the first time the concepts and insights of general systems theory are presented in tandem with those of the Buddha. Remarkable convergences appear between core Buddhist teachings and the systems view of reality, arising in our century from Biology and extending into the social and cognitive sciences. Giving a cogent introduction to both bodies of thought, and a fresh interpretation of the Buddha's core teaching of dependent co-arising, this book shows how their common perspective on causality can inform our lives. The interdependence of all beings provides the Context for clarifying both the role of meditative practice and guidelines for effective action on behalf of the common good.Printed Pages: 254. 101132

The Forgotten Palaces of Calcutta
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 818973878X; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Forgotten Palaces of Calcutta discovers the old areas of the city, where heritage houses and history fill every crowded lane and secret courtyard. Languishing in another time and place, at the end of narrow lanes and behind untidy shop-fronts, Calcutta’s rich heritage waits to be discovered.A discovery of the old areas of the city, where heritage houses and history fill every crowded lane and secret courtyard. The Forgotten Palaces of Calcutta is an important contribution to the architectural history of both Calcutta and India.The great houses of Bengal’s merchant princes have been largely forgotten and rarely photographed. Many of the interiors have remained the same for over 200 years. While much has been written and photographed on the British colonial architecture and lifestyle, very little has been done on the Indian equivalent. The great families experienced enormous changes in fortune over the centuries, from great wealth and power during colonial times to dramatic economic and social upheaval after Independence. For the remaining occupants, their ancestral homes are bitter-sweet symbols of family pride, impossible to restore, or sometimes even to maintain.By focusing on Calcutta’s heritage mansions and palaces, The Forgotten Palaces of Calcutta makes an important contribution to the architectural history of both Calcutta and India.Printed Pages: 128 with 256 colour photographs. 106567

Never By Chance: Aligning People and Strategy Through Intentional Leadership
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8126526920; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
What keeps business leaders awake at night is a nagging sense of frustration from knowing that their organization could be, and should be, creating better results than it is. Never by Chance teaches business leaders to be intentional leaders. Being intentional means sharing a sense of purpose and direction not only with employees, but also with partners, vendors, and customers. When everything in an organization is intentional, it's the most incredible feeling; there's nothing you can't achieve and no goal you can't reach. The key to success is that it never happens by chance.Never by Chance is about straightforward processes to get people to work together to drive extraordinary results. It requires strong leadership, critical thinking and dedication to sustain focus on what's truly important. Printed Pages: 416. 104758

How Asia Works: Success and Failure in the World's Most Dynamic Region
Profile Books/Hachette; New Delhi, India; 2013; 1846682428; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
A provocative look at what has worked and what hasn't in East Asian economics. Until the catastrophic economic crisis of the late 1990s, East Asia was perceived as a monolithic success story. But heady economic growth rates masked the most divided continent in the world one half the most extraordinary developmental success story ever seen, the other half a paper tiger. Joe Studwell explores how policies ridiculed by economists created titans in Japan, Korea and Taiwan, and are now behind the rise of China, while the best advice the West could offer sold its allies in south-east Asia down the economic river. The first book to offer an Asia-wide deconstruction of success and failure in economic development, Studwell's latest work is provocative and iconoclastic and sobering reading for most of the world's developing countries. How Asia Works is a must-read book that packs powerful insights about the world's most misunderstood continent. Printed Pages: 288. 037646

Shambhala Publication/TBI; New Delhi, India; 1993; 0938190121; Softcover; New; 
In The Passionate Mind, Joel Kramer asserts that "what we believe determines much of what we think and do: the way we move, the way we respond to people, how we think of ourselves, how we see the world in general." His basic message, stated in short, clear prose, is that passion is to be found only in the present moment, and mainly through becoming aware of the thoughts flowing through our minds, and through the primal process of observing our thoughts, they begin to self-correct. From the author of The Guru Papers, The Passionate Mind is a wonderful journey for anyone seeking to discover how to look at oneself. Printed Pages: 140. 112037

Common Purpose: How Great Leaders Get Organizations to Achieve The Extraordinary
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8126526939; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
What is common purpose? It is that rare, almost-palpable experience that happens when a leader coalesces a group, team or community into a creative, dynamic, brave and nearly invincible we. It happens the moment the organization's values, tools, objectives and hopes are internalized in a way that enables people to work tirelessly toward a goal. Years ago, there was a book about the inner game of tennis which changed the way people think about and play sports. Common purpose is the inner game of leadership. Common purpose is rarely achieved. But Kurtzman has observed that when a leader is able to bring it about, the results are outsized, measurable and inspiring.Common purpose is a book about leaders, leadership and how to lead. It is based on Kurtzman's recent interviews with more than 50 leaders. It is also based on research on leadership he has conducted over the years beginning at The New York Times, the Harvard Business Review, Booz & Company, during his career as a partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers, his own consulting firm and for groups like Mercer HR, Korn/Ferry International and Heidrick & Struggles.Printed Pages: 240. 104588

Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8170227321; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book attempts to examine the role of NGOs in the rural development.

Also, he provides valuable information on people's participation in rural development, importance of empowering rural people and the need for advocacy to influence government policies in favour of the poor. NGOs and Rural Development: Theory and Practice will serve as a manual for persons working in NGOs, represent-atives of funding agencies, government officials, students and teachers of social work.

It is encyclopaedic in contents and gives a comprehensive glimpse of the various aspects of the life and society of ancient India over a range of several centuries beginning from the 6the century B.C.. One can learn from it everything About ancient Jainism- its traditions and history, dogmatics, the life and activities of Lord Mahavira and his attitude towards other sects and thinkers and his peculiar method of exposition and expression. The Bhagvati is also a veritable promptuary of legends and parables.Dr. Sikdar studied the text of the Bhagavatisutra with great care and patience under the guidance of two very eminent savants the late Dr. P.C. Bagchi and Dr. H.L. Jain. His studies spread over a number of years, primarily at Visva Bharati University and later on at Research Institute of Prakrit, Jainology & Ahimsa. As a devoted student of Ancient Indian History and Culture, he could with ease glean data from the Ardhamagadhi text and weave them into a connected and economic conditions, social life and education.

India's Overland Trade with Central Asia and Persia during the Thirteenth and Fourteenth Centuries
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2006; 8121511607; Reprint; Hard Cover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
The thirteenth century opened new vistas in the world history, particularly Asia. It witnessed the rise and fall of different dynasties and ultimately allowed the Mongols to survive as the mightiest power in China, Russia (Kipchak), Central Asia, and Persia for more than a century. They brought under their sway the Islamic lands of the Orient except India where the Turks had already established themselves as a powerful state during this period. The present study is the first of its kind dealing with India's overland trade with Central Asia and Persia during the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. The book seeks to interpret the working of the political forces in India and her neighbouring countries which shaped the commercial network of the medieval period. Despite the Mongol devastatations, the yasa of Chingiz Khan and the zeal displayed by the Turks created an aura of mercantile activities. Printed Pages: 196 with 2 folding maps. 030623

Born to Win
Kaveri Book Service; New Delhi, India; 2000; 8174790551; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
We got independence not yesterday but a long long time ago. Once upon a time the Britishers ruled us. Today the bureaucrats & politicians are the custodians of our well being. The author has spent almost four decades of his life being a part of a stagnant system. This book is a narration of a few days of his post-retirement life. He has allowed the dust and the rust of politics merely a superficial touch on his being. The subconcious depths, the absence of fear, having convictions & also the strength to stand by them perhaps were few of his personality traits which could prevent the unconcious daily accretion of self destructive corrosion. Every individual is a unit. Ten units join to form `tens'. Ten `tens' give a `hundred' and hundred `hundreds' a `thousand' ... a population emerges ... but the fundemental unit is still one individual. If the author being just one such unit could with stand the negative charges of the political and administrative pressures, why can not we, in our unit capacities, stand against our visionless selfish custodians? His experience and reflections provide an insight to the inside of our hollow governing system. The author, in his typical lucid, amusing but informative, direct manne, has penned down the X-ray of our political leaders and administration. The diagnosis is precise. The prevention and cure both are in our hands. He has provided a stimulus but would we respond from our deep slumber?Printed Pages: 320. 104197

Äiti, emäntä, virkanainen, Vartija: Köyhäintalojen johtajattaret ja yhteiskunnallinen äitiys 1880-1918
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2011; 9522223042; New; 
Köyhäintalon johtajattarelta vaadittiin paljon: hänen tuli olla sekä äiti, emäntä, virkanainen että vartija. Hänen odotettiin toteuttavan aikansa keskiluokkaista naisihannetta, toisaalta hänellä oli yksityiselämä ja omat motiivit hakeutua raskaalle uralle. Johtajattarien henkilökuvien kautta piirtyy suomalainen yhteiskunta tuoreessa valossa 1800- ja 1900-lukujen vaihteessa. Kirja antaa uutta tietoa suomalaisen sosiaalityön alkuajoista, sukupuolijärjestelmän rakentamisesta sekä näiden nivoutumisesta osaksi keskiluokan nousua yhteiskunnalliseen valta-asemaan.

Participating in Explanatory Dialogues: Interpreting and Responding to Questions in Context
The MIT Press; Cambridge, Massachussets, USA; 1995; 0262133016; First Edition; Hard Cover; Fine; Fine; 18.5 Cms x 24 Cms 
While much has been written about the areas of text generation, text planning, discourse modeling, and user modeling, Johanna Moore's book is one of the first to tackle modeling the complex dynamics of explanatory dialogues. It describes an explanation-planning architecture that enables a computational system to participate in an interactive dialogue with its users, focusing on the knowledge structures that a system must build in order to elaborate or clarify prior utterances, or to answer follow-up questions in the context of an ongoing dialogue. Moore develops a model of explanation generation and describes a fully implemented natural-language system that is embedded in an existing expert system and that includes a generation component. Her main thesis is that shallow approaches to explanation such as paraphrasing the expert system's line of reasoning or filling in an explanation "schema" are not adequate for supporting dialogue, and that a more flexible approach is needed, one that is adaptive to context, aware of what is being said, and of what has gone before in the user's dialogue with the expert system. She argues that the problem with prior approaches is that they do not provide a representation of the intended effects of the components of an explanation, nor how these intentions are related to one another or to the rhetorical structure of the text. She proposes a computational solution to the question of how explanations can be synthesized in such a way that a system can later reason about the explanations it has produced to affect its subsequent utterances.

Tutkimuksessa tarkastellaan erilaisia tapoja tuottaa alastonvalokuviin niitä puoltaneita ihanteita. Vuosisadan alun miesatleettien kuvat, naisalastontutkielmat ja kasvavan harrastajakuvaajajoukon lapsikuvat muovasivat kansalaisen, taiteilijan, uuden naisen ja lapsuuden ideaaleja populaarikulttuurin ja korkeataiteen välimaastossa. Alastonvalokuvilla ei ollut itsestään selviä merkityksiä, vaan niiden välittämä sisältö muuntui aikakauden, sukupuolen ja iän, kuvausympäristön ja kuvien esittämisyhteyden mukaan.

Suomen aluerakenteen viimeaikainen ja tuleva Kehitys
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2010; 9514261003; New; 
Suomen asutun alueen kokonaispinta-ala on pienentynyt kahdeksan prosenttia vuosina 1970–2007. Samanaikaisesti väestömäärä on kasvanut 15 prosenttia, mikä on johtanut väestöntiheyden kohoamiseen. Maaseudun väestömäärä on pienentynyt noin 33 prosenttia. Maaseudun väestöntiheys oli 15,4 asukasta/km² vuonna 1970, vuonna 2007 se oli laskenut 11,3 asukkaaseen/neliökilometrillä. Tiheään asuttujen taajama-alueiden väestömäärä on kasvanut 42 prosenttia vuosina 1970–2007. Maaseutu- ja taajama-alueiden aluerakenteen kehitystrendit osoittavat, että harvaan asuttujen alueiden asutus ohenee myös tulevaisuudessa, mikä johtaa väistämättä joidenkin maaseutumaisten alueiden autioitumiseen. 115235

Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2011; 952222264X; New; 
Ylhäisaatelisen von Fersen -suvun arki 1700-luvun Ruotsissa oli monella tapaa ylellistä. Heidän varakkuutensa perustui suuriin, perittyihin maaomaisuuksiin. Avioliitoilla, lasten kasvatuksella ja viroilla kasvatettiin omaisuutta ja verkostoja, mutta ne myös vaativat taloudellisia sijoituksia. Aatelisten kuluttaminen vaihteli elämäntilanteiden mukaan. Nuoret miehet edistivät upseerinuraansa ostamalla joukko-osastoja Ruotsin tai Ranskan armeijoista, avioituville aatelisnaisille taas teetettiin kalliita kapioita. Kreivit ja kreivittäret tilasivat Ranskasta ylellisyysesineitä, pelasivat uhkapelejä, metsästivät ja osallistuivat politiikkaan sekä Tukholman seuraelämään. Printed Pages: 524. 115565

Focus on Form J.J. Tikkanen, Giotto and Art Research in the 19th Century
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2007; 951905765X; New; 
This study is on Johan Jakob Tikkanen (1857-1930), the first professor of art history in Finland, and his significance and methods in the context of late 19th and early 20th-century European art history. Tikkanen was one of the pioneering scholars in the field of medieval art research, and one of the scholars who defined art history as an independent academic discipline. Tikkanen was profoundly interested in artistic creativity. In his own words, he wanted to study das künstlerische Können, artistic ability, instead of das künstlerische Wollen or artistic will. This starting point led him to the history of style and iconographical research. Printed Pages: 192. 114303

Svenskt, finskt och Ryskt
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2014; 9515831903; New; 
Eric Gustaf Ehrström (1791–1835) var lektor i ryska vid akademin i Åbo och blev kyrkoherde i S:t Katarina svenska församling i S:t Petersburg. Han var en av de tidigaste förespråkarna för finskan som nationalspråk, men hävdade också att kunskaper i ryska språket var en nationalnödvändighet i Finland. I det mångspråkiga S:t Petersburg såg han däremot som sin uppgift att försvara det svenska modersmålet. Johanna Wassholm undersöker hur Ehrström under olika tider och i olika roller såg på finskt, svenskt och ryskt samt på förhållandet mellan språk, nation och historia. Särskilt aktuellt blev det här efter 1809 när Finland skildes från Sverige och blev en del av det ryska imperiet. Printed Pages: 217. 115477

Gården vid Kanalen: Strömma gårds Historia
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2013; 9515832632; New; 
Strömma gård i Bjärnå i Egentliga Finland ligger mellan fastland och skärgård, mellan finskt och svenskt och vid en fjärd som historiskt varit en viktig kommunikationsled. Dagens Strömma gård var tidigare flera mindre egendomar, som hade nära anknytning till två av traktens järnbruk, Tykö och Mathildedal. På 1840-talet byggdes Strömma kanal på gårdens mark, vilket starkt påverkade både livet på gården och förutsättningarna för utvecklingen av näringslivet. Befolkningen ökade i takt med att industrierna växte och det gav upphov till ett aktivt förenings- och kulturliv. När reguljär ångbåtstrafik från Åbo inleddes blev Strömma en populär plats för utflykter och evenemang. I boken presenteras gårdens mångskiftande historia fram till i dag, med tyngdpunkt på de två senaste århundradena. Printed Pages: 140. 115508

Teos käsittelee 1960- ja 1970-luvuilla tehtyjä suunnitelmia siirtää valtion virastoja ja laitoksia Helsingistä muualle Suomeen. Esimerkkitapauksena tarkastellaan Maatalouden tutkimuskeskuksen vuosina 1978–1983 tapahtunutta muuttoa Vantaan Tikkurilasta Jokioisiin ja tämän muuton vaikutuksia tutkimuskeskuksen toiminnalle, sen henkilöstölle sekä alueille. Maatalouden tutkimuskeskuksesta tuli käytännössä ennakkotapaus, jossa vastaavien siirtojen vaikutukset tulevat näkyviin monin eri tavoin. Ongelmia tuottivat henkilökohtaista tapaamista edellyttävien kontaktien ylläpitäminen, muuttoprosessin pitkittyminen ja sen henkilöstössä synnyttämä epävarmuus, sekä yksilötasolla siirron kohteeksi joutuvien oman elämän hallintaan liittyvät kysymykset.

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2002; 8121510554; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
The purpose of the present study is to present Swami Narayanananda as a prototype of a modern successful guru, who in his twilight language seems to be offering a definite kind of synthesis of all religions. Narayanananda, however, cannot be studied in isolation. He has to be studied in concreto within the movement of guruism. This single guru can be seen as a focus for the general movement of New Age which has taken the whole world by surprise. There is much more to be said, not least about the parallel movements within and out of Buddhism, which has its own esoteric and occult experiences. Printed Pages: 164. 000180

Buddhist Teaching in India
Wisdom Publications; Boston, USA; 2010; 0861715667; First Edition; Paperback; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The Abhidhamma, the third great division of early Buddhist teaching, expounds a revolutionary system of philosophical psychology rooted in the twin Buddhist insights of selflessness and dependent origination. In keeping with the liberative thrust of early Buddhism, this system organizes the entire spectrum of human consciousness around the two poles of Buddhist doctrine—bondage and liberation, Samsara and Nirvana—the starting point and the final goal. It thereby maps out, with remarkable rigour and precision, the inner landscape of the mind to be crossed through the practical work of Buddhist meditation. In this book of groundbreaking essays, Venerable Nyanaponika Thera, one of our age's foremost exponents of Theravada Buddhism, attempts to penetrate beneath the formidable face of the Abhidhamma and to make its principles intelligible to the thoughtful reader of today. His point of focus is the Consciousness Chapter of the Dhammasangani, the first treatise of the Abhidhamma Pitaka. Basing himself on the detailed list of mental factors that the Abhidhamma uses as a guide to psychological analysis, he launches into bold explorations in the multiple dimensions of conditionality, the nature of consciousness, the temporality of experience, and the psychological springs of spiritual transformation. Innovative and rich in insights, this book does not merely open up new avenues in the academic study of early Buddhism. By treating the Abhidhamma as a fountainhead of inspiration for philosophical and psychological inquiry, it demonstrates the continuing relevance of Buddhist thought to our most astute contemporary efforts to understand the elusive yet so intimate nature of the mind. Dan Goleman, celebrated author of Emotional Intelligence, in recommending this classic book, says that his former teacher, Venerable Nyanaponika Thera, was "one of the most profound and lucid interpreters of Buddhist psychology in our time."

Greater Magadha: Studies in the Cultures of Early India
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8120835344; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Greater Magadha, roughly the eastern part of the Gangetic plain of northern India, has so far been looked upon as deeply indebted to Brahmanical culture. Religions such as Buddhism and Jainism are thought of as derived, in one way or another, from Vedic religion. This belief is defective in various respects. The book argues for the importance and independence of Greater Magadha as a cultural area until a date close to the beginning of the Common Era. In order to correct the incorrect notions, two types of questions are dealt with: questions pertaining to cultural and religious dependencies, and questions relating to chronology. As a result a modified picture arises that also has a bearing on the further development of Indian culture. The book is arranged in five parts. Part-I describes cultural features of Greater Magadha, under which there are three chapters-The Fundamental Spiritual Ideology, Other Features and Conclusions. Part-II: Brahmanism vis-a-vis Rebirth and Karmic Retribution has three sections- Hesitantly Accepted, Rebirth and Karmic Retribution Ignored or Rejected, and Urban Brahmins. Under section one there are chapters onó Dharma Sutra, a portion from the Mahabharata and the early Upanisads. Section two features chapters on Rebirth and Karmic Retribution Ignored and Rebirth and Karmic Retribution Rejected. Section three is on urban Brahmins.Printed Pages: 433. 102519

Tradition And Argument In Classical Indian Linguistics: The Bahiranga-Paribhasa in the Paribhasendu Sekhara
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8120818830; Softcover; New; 
The Paribhasendusekhara by Nagesa is the most widely studied text in the field of grammatical Paribhasas. Numerous commentaries have been written on it including one by Nagesa`s Pupil, Vaidyanatha Payagunda. In addition an excellent english translation was published more than a century ago by one of the most outstanding scholars of sanskrit grammar, Franz Kielhorn. Yet the protion dealing with the Bahiranga Paribhasa the most important Paribhasa and the one most extensively discussed by Nagesa has according to Bronkhorst been misunderstood by commentators and translator alike.Printed Pages: 233. 102569

From Vasubandhu to Caitanya: Studies in Indian Philosophy and Its Textual History (Papers in the 12th World Sanskrit Conference, Volume 10.1)
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8120834720; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The chapter in this volume are a selection of papers presented in the general Philosophy Section at the 12th World Sanskrit Conference in Helsinki, Finland. The first part of the book, Studies in Indian Philosophy, contains nine studies on individual topics and concepts in Indian philosophy from various perspectives: historical-philological, philosophical and comparative. They are inter alia concerned with such fundamental issues as the characteristic signs of the Self, the concept of vijnaptimatrata in Vasubandhu's Yogacara, the notion of unchanging cognition in the writings of the Kashmirian author Ramakantha, the definition of existence according to the late Buddhist philosopher Jnanasrimitra, and the significance of the sadhana catustaya in Vedanta. In the second part of the book, two papers contribute to the study of the textual history of Indian philosophy, with a focus on the Patanjalayogasastra and Candrananda's commentary on the Vaisesikasutra.Printed Pages: 182. 102081

Word Index to the Prasastapadabhasya: A Complete Word Index to the Printed Editions of the Prasastapadabhasya
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1994; 8120812727; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Prasastapadabhasya whose real title is Padarthadharmasamgraha is the most important surviving work of classical Vaisesika. Its great popularity which continues today is witnessed by the fact that it exists in numerous editions. Access to and comparison of these different editons has always been hindered by the lack of a word index covering all the existing editions. This book provides such a tool. All readings in all editions are recorded with references to the page numbers in those editions.Printed Pages: 185. 102162

Modersmålets Sånger
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2015; 951583340X; New; 
I Modersmålets sånger analyseras finlandssvensk kultur och identitet ur ett musikaliskt perspektiv. Med hjälp av kulturanalytiska teorier diskuterar sex forskare hur musiken bidrar både till att konstruera finlandssvenskhet och till att konkretisera den mångfald av svenskheter som förekommer i Finland. Det gemensamma för bokens artiklar är att musik inte bara ses som ett ljudande fenomen, utan också som en aktivitet och ett kulturellt fenomen. Sambandet mellan musik och identitet klargörs med olika infallsvinklar och fallstudier, där bland annat dansbandmusik och vissång ingår. Printed Pages: 289. 114759
