The Ellora Monoliths: Rashtrakuta Architecture in the Deccan
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1988; 8121201179; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book seeks to lift into focus the monolithic legacy of the Rashtrakutas at Ellora, from out of the reason that these monoliths perhaps are best suited to understand and reconstruct the artistic, architectural, traditional, religious and cult interactions and growth-spectra that had taken place in the period from the 8th to the 10th century A.D., very much more eloquently than the study of the cave temple types. Without the stabilizing role of these monoliths, in the over view of the status of temple art, in that period which the Rashtrakutas adorned by their vigorous patronage, eclecticism and multi-pronged political thrusts all over India in their heyday, the cave-art syndrome would tend to cloy even under the best circumstances, as something repetitive, potteries and commandeered which surely it was not. The book deals with the five monoliths at Ellora, in their own historical architectural, iconographic-religious perspectives, and elucidates how they were greatly diversified and pregnant with rich potential for the reconstruction of the are situation; and it compares them also with their compeer monoliths elsewhere in South India, in the same ilk, as in the Pallava and Pandya zones of the past. The chief aim of the book is to give a satisfactory formal picture of these monoliths and to vest them with the credit of being land-marks in the arche-types they sought to represent. Profusely illustrated and with a helpful set of charts and glossary, it is designed to cover a felt need in art studies at Ellora.Printed Pages: 320. 105703

Secularism in Indian Art
Abhinav Publications/Kaveri Books; New Delhi, India; 8170172454; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book is directed towards inquiring into the definition of the scope of secularism in a holistic way, in so far as it could apply to ancient Indian creative art, often labelled as religious art. It is, however, seen that this art often shows in its composition, partly or wholly, a deliberate unrelatedness to its immediate locus, and conveys the mind of the artist, his absorption of the aesthetic and literary, traditional, mystic and the rasa-charged pulsating life-stream legacy, and display of macro-cosmic temper, supra-regional commonality and norm-building penchant, in his eventual creations. Religion can produce profound thought, but not art which, through the medium of religion, shows insight and the impacts of secular experience. Examining by a sampling the entire range of art, sectorally and chronologically, to detect the secular manifestations embedded in the art presentations, the author finds that there is an integrated secularism in the art of India’s past, invoked by the artists who had been groomed in its culture and who had developed a macro-perception, by the totality of the impacts of the Dharmasastras, Arthasastras, Kamasastras, and Natyasastras, along with the hieratic works and the fertility cults and mystic deity-devotee links, analogous to mundane romantic attachment, and the ancient artist who owned all this as a private legacy, had evolved his own techniques for formal creations of them in art. Illustrated with sixty-four plates and line drawings, besides Notes on Plates and Appendices, the eight chapters of the book dissect the processes behind art creations, to reveal humanism and secularism.

Policing in the 21st Century: Myth, Realities and Challenges
Kaveri Book Service; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8174791256; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
This book is a compendium of 17 essays, which are well researched, analyzed and documented by the author on the basis of his rich experience in the fields of internal security and policing. The author raises certain pertinent questions, which are in the contemporary law and order scenario of the country, need the serious attention of the governments, police leaders, intellectuals and social activists and the society, at large. Whether the police with the existing organizational structure, manpower, resources and present style of functioning can cope up with the new challenges? To what extent, the police personnel are equipped with the cerebral skills and professionalism to effectively deal with the new brand of cyber-crimes, money-laundering and terrorism that go beyond the contours of countries and continents? What innovative mechanisms, strategic management policies and organizational changes are required to equip and professionalize police to meet these challenges? If not, where we have gone wrong in such crucial areas? This work unfolds a number of such sensitive issues and comes out with bold and unbiased findings which would be an eye-opener to administrators and police leaders. Simultaneously, the book draws the attention of the people and society to certain crucial aspects of policing such as community policing, police-public partnership, expectations of the society from the police, myth and realities of corruption in police, image crisis of police, the need of transforming the police into an effective instrument of public service and the concept of `privatization' and `civilianization' with wider application of Information Technology, scientific and forensic aids to investigate so as to liberate the police from a scourge of human and civil rights violations. Vision for Police-2020 is definitely on above lines. The main focus and attraction of this book is that many new thoughts and ideas have been incorporated in the book which are definitely debatable among police leaders, social scientists and human/civil right activists.Printed Pages: 264. 104230

Japan: Super Economic Power
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1998; 8121206006; Hardcover; New; New; 
If two representative images of Japan devastated in World War II and Japan as today's economic giant are placed side by side, it would only elicit a surprise so intense as to approach skepticism. In terms of economic resurgence and reconstruction, Japans feat in the post World War II era is probably more glorious, even than the erstwhile West Germany. The uthors have adopted a multidimensional approach to study Japans phenomenal economic growth. Significantly this book analyses the economic growth of Japan based on the ground rality in that corintry and not on the models of western industrialized carintries. Through their in cursive analysis, the authors show that Japan has modernized its economy by obilizing its socio-economic energies in its own unique way and without following any western model.Printed Pages: 254. 105871

Jaindharm Ka Itihaas (Volume 1: Mahavir k Purv Jain Dharm aur Uska Kaal)
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2005; 8124603170; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
History of Jainism has been presented here in three parts. The first part tries to prove through the archaeological and literary sources the historicity of Tirthamkara, Parsvanatha and Mahavira, explaining their life and education besides religious, political, social, artistic and literary conditions of their times. The second part surveys the history of the Jaina dharma, its expansion and significance. The effects of Jaina dharma increased when Mauryas were ruling Magadha and Kharawelas ruled Orissa. No doubt, the period from the 9th to 12th centuries ce was a golden time in the history of Jainism and even traders, labourers and craftsmen were highly influenced by it during Kusana period. Seen geographically, Cauhana, Paramara and Calukya were acting as watchmen for Jainism in the north and in the south it was being nourished by Calukya, Rastrakuta and Ganga (Kingdoms). Many Jaina temples were constructed, monuments erected in honour of their deities. This part illustrates the many ways in which Jainism was served by the Jaina monks, saints, scholars and the politicians and answers questions such as: What kind of religious and social unions were made after the division and what were their traditional characteristics? How were the different leagues and monastries of Jaina sages made? What was the lineage of various castes and how they originated? The third part, associated with the middle ages of Jainism, describes that even though there was Muslim rule, still many organizations were sponsored with the influence of Jainism. Truthfully, there was a decline in Jainism during the middle ages but it remained protected. Many pilgrimages and historical places were established with the great influence of Jainism. Dr A.H. Nizami has written here about the Muslim reign, conditions of Jainism and also about the admirable Jainas. Dr Surendra Gopal has described the social and financial conditions prevailing at this period. Dr Shyam Sunder Nigam has penned on the middle ages of India and Dr Prakash Chandra Jain has written about the Jaina religion in the Middle Ages in Malwa region. This monumental work will be a treat for the minds and eyes of people curious about Jainism.Printed Pages: 416 with 3 maps. 100383

Knowledge and Reality: A Comparative Study of Divine and Some Buddhist Logicians
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1994; 8120811747; Hardcover; New; New; 
The present work consists of an analytical study and critique of certain aspects of Buddhist tradition as they bear upon some central problems of logic and ontology. The author examines the logical, epistemological and ontological doctrines of Dignaga, Dharmakirti and Ratnakirti on the one hand and of W.V. Quine on the other. She agrees with Quine that a sharp line of demarcation between analytic and synthetic statements is untenable and she argues that a position similar to Quine`s obtains in the writings of the Buddhist logicians. She provides convincing arguments to the effect that the Buddhist logicians` rejection of substance ontology leads to the rejection of any claim to the ultimacy of the analytical-synthetic distinction. Divided into seven chapters and documented with Preface, Bibliography and General Index, this work is a rare contribution in the field of Comparative Philosophy.Printed Pages: 120. 102377

Mirza Sheikh I'tesmuddin's Wonders of Vilayet
Chronicle Books; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8180280322; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
This is the first book-length account of the West by an Indian. Mirza Sheikh I’tesamuddin, a munshi who had served the East India Company before becoming a Mughal courtier, was entrusted by Emperor Shah Alam II with a diplomatic mission to the British Court. He set sail in January 1766, and though the mission was aborted, the journey of nearly three years resulted in a remarkable memoir. Written in Persian, ‘Shigurf Nama-e-Vilayet’ or ‘Wonderful Tales about Europe’ is a unique historical document and a vastly entertaining travel narrative. Though never published in the original, an abridged and flawed English translation appeared in 1827. This book is the first complete English version. The Mirza was enchanted by Britain, but he was not a colonial subject. A highly educated and curious observer of alien cultures, he wrote about his visits to the theatre, the circus, freak shows, the ‘madrassah of Oxford’, the Scottish Highlands and at a more serious level the factors that had led to India’s decline and Europe’s ascendancy, and the socio-political system of Britain.

Alice in Bhuleshwar: Navigating a Mumbai Neighbourhood
Yoda Press; New Delhi, India; 8190618636; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Kaiwan Mehta takes the reader for a walk through the streets and past the buildings of the ‘native town’ of colonial Bombay, reading their histories and excavating their memories, while continuing to negotiate their present context. This historic neighbourhood of Mumbai, fondly referred to as Bhuleshwar, has remained a residential and religious hub as before, while thriving as the city’s essential commercial marketplace today. It retains a complex history of migration and community, which is evident in the architectural form, motifs and designs of the area. The buildings are literally registers of history; they are maps of a time gone by, and yet they continue to find themselves relevant and alive in the contemporary context. Alice in Bhuleshwar is also a story of the people who have lived in these buildings: unsung icons like Premiji and Saroj Pathak, famed artistes like Jayashankar ‘Sundari’, and others who have inhabited these buildings which breathe in the salty air of Mumbai and speak to those who care to listen.

The Architecture of I.M. Kadri
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2016; 9789385285301; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Architecture of I.M. Kadri traces the body of work of Iftikhar M. Kadri, founder, partner and principal architect of IMK Architects, who began his practice in Mumbai in the 1950s. As an architect who shaped his practice largely in the early decades after India's independence, in the commercial capital of a young nation, he contributed greatly to the design of emerging typologies like the high-rise apartment, the office tower and the hospitality industry in Mumbai and India, going on to build in the Middle East, Hong Kong, Tajikistan, Malaysia, and so on.Kadri's journey and practice as an architect in the five decades following India's independence account for a different history of architecture in India than the one otherwise available. His journey is also the journey of Bombay/Mumbai as the emerging commercial capital of India - a city whose tryst with architecture is very different from that of Delhi or Ahmedabad, the other two sites of important Modern architecture in India. Kadri's career charts not only an important journey in India's history, but he is also someone who contributed to the discourses on Modern and Traditional architecture in India, working within the forces of real estate and commerce, and with state, private and corporate clients. His works help us open the debates on what is the role of architecture, its ideas of beauty and strength, its existence within the world of politics and economics.Although Kadri has been a stalwart in the field of architecture in his own right, not often has his deep involvement with architectural thought in India been recognised, or for that matter, recorded and analysed.

Afterbirth and Other Stories
Showcase/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8174367950; Softcover; New; 
Rarely does prose capture the vagaries of the human spirit with such acuity and pose. Lyrically written and intensely imagined, Afterbirth and Other Stories invites us to see our dark and luminous selves in an intimate relationship. The stories resonate with our lives and experiences as they take us from a Spitian village to a cultural centre in the Kangra valley and further south of the great metropolises of Delhi and Bangalore. Women emerge as protagonists in most of the stories, laying bare their hidden aspirations, designs and vulnerabilities.The dubious demeanour of a narcissistic woman leads to unexpected events, while a girl's twisted DNA costs her many a friendship. A maidservant who has connections with the underworld teaches her employer a valuable lesson. Through the eyes of a rich socialite and a journalist we see the bizarre and glorious workings of the human mind, while an adolescent girl's adoration of her mother turns disastrous. The characters acquire a life of their own as their stories run across macabre spaces and forage into the depths of their beings. As we grow angry with and share the joys of the actors, bleak truths are revealed and poetic justice is delivered. Printed Pages: 266. 108655

Genealogical Records and Traditional Knowledge System: Study in Four Sacred Centres of India
Kalpaz Publications/Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8121212731; Hardcover; New; New; 
The present study is a maiden step by anthropological Survey of India into a unique field of record maintaining system of great temples in India. In almost all the great temples, there is a tradition of keeping records of the pilgrims. Interestingly these records, referred differently in different areas, are maintained over centuries and are still continuing as a living tradition. The origin of this knowledge system has its root in the age old jajmani relation of Hindu society. The system is embodied in the temple activities as a whole, therefore, the socio-religious significance of the particular holy centre in relation to the pan-Indian scenario has also been probed into, which added further importance to the studies. All the four articles in this volume are based on first hand empirical data. Through this maiden venture, Anthropological Survey of India has made a footmark in this interesting field of knowledge system which opens up a new vista to the anthropological society for further queries and updating the knowledge.Printed Pages: 184. 106272

The Puranic Concept of Dana provides an exhaustive expostion of The Hindu practice of gift-giving. Here in The Author includes virtually every reference to dana found in the Vadas, Smritis, Dharmasutras and Puranas. These texts reveal a broad spectrum of religiously sanctioned gifting. Specific guidelines exist governing simple hospitality as well as such grandiose offerings as a king's weight in gold or a mountain of jewels. These practices were widespread and important for the material support of Hindu society on every level. Consequently, elaborate directions and rituals developed to insure the propriety of gifts, givers and recipients. These teachings constitute the substance of Dr. Acharya's research, and through these passages the reader may glimpse the larger patterns of Hindu culture. While the modern student may find the style of writing overly detailed and repetitive, one should remember their Context and sense the 'Voice' of rishis.Printed Pages: 296. 103922

State of Urban Services in India's Cities: Spending and Financing
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2010; 0198065388; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
With increasing population and expanding demand for urban infrastructure services, the capacities of local governments in many developing countries are overburdened. Adequate infrastructure is not only necessary for increasing productivity but also improving the quality of living. Given the primacy of public service delivery for cities to become engines of growth, this book answers two critical questions: Does low spending explain the state of poor public service delivery? How can urban local bodies have access to greater resources so as to enable them to improve public service delivery? Using case studies of four cities—Ahmedabad, Kolkata, Jaipur, and Bangalore—the book examines urban services such as water supply, sewerage, sanitation, solid waste management, municipal roads, and street lighting. It compares the state of these services with international norms and suggests new ways in which they can be financed and improved. More specifically, the book examines the role of land as a revenue-generating source in India’s cities. 033658

Figurative Poetry in Sanskrit Literature
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1975; 8120826698; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book is an attempt at resolving an important tangle, that of the utility of Figurative Poetry in Sanskrit Literature. In the shape of Sabdacitra and Ubhayacitra, connoting verbal juggleries and intellectual riddles this literature amuses vast shades of people, even today. Arthacitra is the real imagist poetry. Even old Sanskrit rhetoricians, Ananda, Abhinava and Panditaraja had a flash of its imagist appeal. The book is divided into seven chapters. Ch. I is introductory. It re-defines poetry and assesses the place of figurative poetry in that context. Ch. II deals with the historicity of different divisions and subdivisions of this branch of poetry as also with some new concepts either co-ordinate with them or contributory to their development. Chs. III IV discuss the various divisions of Sabdacitra and Ubhayacitra with apt illustrations from copious sources. Chs. V VI deal with Arthacitra and the development of Citrakavya right from the Vedic age. Ch. VII affirms and establishes the conviction of the concept treated in the previous chapters. The book is documented with Preface, Abbreviations, Appendices, Bibliography and Index.Printed Pages: 228. 102586

Endosulfan Global Conspiracy and A Kerala Fraud Story
Gen Next Publication/Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789380222400; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
The book, a venture on investigative journalism, questions the version created by the media and the Environmental NGOs that the aerial spraying of endosulfan had caused widespread diseases and deaths in Kasargod in North Malabar. All the pre- existing diseases in the area were described as Endosulfan diseases by anti-pesticide activists. Though it was described as an event next only to the Bhopal gas tragedy, the controversy was the fallout of a global conspiracy hatched by the European Union to sell its patented pesticides. The whole episode boils down to competition among pesticide manufacturers of the EU to create its hegemony in the global market. The conferences on Multilateral Environmental Agreements were manipulated by the European Union . Endosulfan was phased out at the Conference of Parties at the Stockholm convention in 2011 by flouting the rules of the convention.Printed Pages: 306. 106118

Strategies for Achieving Sustained High Economic Growth: The Case of Indian States
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2010; 813210448X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book identifies the factors influencing countrywide economic growth and development by analysing the economic strategies and experiences of various Indian states. It employs a very broad range of analytical techniques to understand the growth patterns and inter-linkages among the sectors and economies of the states. The empirical studies of Indian state economies have largely ignored the inter-dependence of agriculture and industry sectors. The authors explore how this inter-relationship translates into the growth stimulus between the two sectors. The analysis looks at the growth experiences of the states with respect to convergence of their growth rates, spill-over effects of growth of one state on the others, and the impact of macroeconomic policies at the state level. The book also provides insights into factors that can lead to higher and more even growth performance by the Indian states so that the disparity becomes minimal. This book will be a helpful reference for scholars and students of economics and policy studies and political economics. Printed Pages: 256. 033022

15063 Kalidas Bhattacharyya
Fundamentals of K.C. Bhattacharyya's Philosophy
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8124608415; Second Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The Fundamentals of K.C. Bhattacharyya’s Philosophy is the only exhaustive exposition of Krishnachandra Bhattacharyya’s seminal philosophical ideas. Kalidas Bhattacharyya, son of Krishnachandra Bhattacharyya, had the opportunity of a prolonged critical exposure to this unique tradition. This monograph deals with Krishnachandra Bhattacharyya’s epistemic and metaphysical line of thought from the definite to the indefinite, from the objective level to the higher levels of subjectivity, and from association to dissociation or freedom leading to an alternation between knowledge and freedom. Both definiteness and indefiniteness have been identified. The two, however, do not have a coordinate status. There is an alternation between them. One and the same situation could be alternatively understood as definite or as indefinite. This leads to Krishnachandra Bhattacharyya’s well-known philosophical position of “Alternative Standpoints”. The indefinite has to be made definite through layers of transcendental knowledge. The absolute-as-transcendental-knowledge is related to the understanding of the absolute-as-transcendental-will. “The predatory outlook of the scientific intellect” has been referred to and insightful correctives have been offered. Krishnachandra Bhattacharyya’s style of writing is commensurate with the rigour and subtlety of his philosophy. The uninitiated requires a roadmap. This need is amply fulfilled by the present work. The monograph focuses on epistemology and metaphysics. The insights gained through this faithful commentary will help advanced readers to develop their own philosophical pursuits and the beginner will receive a good grounding. Printed Pages: 215. 107444

"As punishment for failing in his duty, an unnamed yaksha is cursed by the god Kubera to endure a hard year in exile. Thus separated from his beloved wife, he longs to send her word of his undying love and the pain he suffers over their parting. Unable to do so himself, the lovelorn yaksha implores a passing cloud to act as his messenger. And so entrusted with this impassioned message, the cloud must travel a vast distance to the city of Alaka in the Himalayas, where the yaksha’s wife waits, consumed by thoughts of her beloved. Filled with lush imagery—from the magnificence of the bountiful earth to the glory of the celestial gods, from the hypnotic lilt of birdsong to the passionate lovemaking of courtesans—The Cloud Message is as moving and resonant today as it was centuries ago. In Srinivas Reddy’s new and ingenious translation, Kalidasa’s celebrated poem comes to life in vivid detail. " Printed Pages: 200. 111467

Born of the Soil
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2016; 9789385285585; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Matira Manisha ('The Man of the Soil') is one of those uncommon artistic creations which prove that good art does not have to be convoluted or obscure. The novel's enduring appeal lies in its very starkness. It is the story of an Odia peasant family whose simple joys and sorrows are bound up with the soil. Baraju Padhan, who becomes the head of the family after the death of his father, Shaama Padhan, inherits his humanism and is committed to the traditions and ideals of joint family existence, but his younger brother, Chhakadi, instigated by his wife Netramani, is determined to split up vthe home. The book is remarkable not only for its depiction of enduring human values but also for its realistic portrayal of the culture of rural Odisha. The language of the novel is a bold attempt at capturing the idiom of the people whose life it presents. Matira Manisha lies close to the hearts of Odia society, and has been made into an award-winning Odia film by Mrinal Sen. Printed Pages: 136. 111053

Decolonisation, Development and Disease: A Social History of Malaria in Sri Lanka
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8125054294; Hardcover; New; New; 
The 1901 Census of Ceylon identified malaria as a “bane” of the island. And through the ensuing century a story of development has sprung around the control of this endemic disease. A story of development that is scripted by a postcolonial state, as it grew to espouse a hegemonic Sinhala nationalist ideology. Decolonisation, Development and Disease looks at the dynamic interplay between malaria and its social, political and environmental milieu in Sri Lanka over an 80-year period from 1930 to 2010. The volume begins with an ethno-historical account of the accumulated body of indigenous knowledge and practices and cultural adaptation to fevers and how it saw a rapid decline with the arrival of western medicine. Then it analyses the consequences of the devastating malaria epidemic of 1934–35, which, affecting mainly the Sinhala South, in some ways shaped Sri Lanka’s transition from a colony to a postcolonial developmental state. The book also examines the manner in which civil war (1983–2009) triggered yet another outbreak of a malaria epidemic. Employing postcolonial studies, post-development and discourse analysis, and examining colonial records, government statistics, oral history, ethnographic research and newspapers, this book challenges the conventional modernist wisdom relating to the role of tropical medicine in combating disease and points to the social and historical embeddedness of malaria epidemics. Arriving at a time of reconciliation in Sri Lanka, this volume will be of interest to ethnographers, social historians, public health experts, administrators and students of political science.Printed Pages: 272. 101923

What happened to these lofty objectives ultimately? How much could be achieved after six decades of development efforts? Did the government try its utmost to provide food and other basic necessities to the semistarved billions? Were there adequate efforts t o reduc e t he regional imbalance in development? How far the rural-urban disparity could be reduced over the decades? Did the government exert itself fully to mobilise all possible resources? This study makes an i n- dept h analysis of these questions with particular reference to the Central and Western part of the Indian states — i.e., UP including Uttaranchal, MP including Chhattisgarh, Maharashtra and Gujarat. The Great Betrayal brings out how an overwhelming majority of the country 's population were deprived by the government over the last six decades due to the misgovernance and endemic corruption? The development efforts made benefitted hardly a fifth of the total population. The Constitution was distorted to serve vested interest. Corruption became rampant everywhere, and the elections held turnedout to be a mockery of democracy. The use of money and muscle power to win elections became common everywhere. Not surprisingly, a large number of criminals became members of Parliament and state legislatures. This study will provide a deep insight towards these anomalies and immensely beneficial to all the researchers, academicians and students.Printed Pages: 336. 106209

Challenging the Rule(s) of Law: Colonialism, Criminology and Human Rights in India
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0761936653; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This rare comprehensive critique of criminology in India brings together widely respected activists, advocates, bureaucrats, scholars and practitioners who share their concerns about the Indian criminal justice system through an interdisciplinary lens and discuss the need to entrench human rights in Indian polity. It is a significant step towards mapping the ways in which interdisciplinary research and human rights activism might inform legal praxis more effectively and holistically. Challenging the Rule(s) of Law: Colonialism, Criminology and Human Rights in India contests unproblematic assumptions of the rule of law and opens out avenues for a renewed and radical study of criminal law in the country. The collection looks at the problem of criminal law from the early colonial period to the present, examining the problem of overt violence by state actors and their compliance with dominant private actors. It calls into question the denial by the state of the wherewithal for bare life, which compounds people’s vulnerability to a repressive rule of law. This work is a must read for students, researchers and faculty of Law, Criminal Law, Criminology, Legal History, Human Rights, Sociology of Law and Colonial History. It will also be invaluable for law historians, legal scholars and policy makers, especially the judiciary. Printed Pages: 512. 028607

Breaking the Mould: Alternative Schools in India
Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789385152290; Softcover; New; 
Understanding Alternative Schools India’s education system has attracted bouquets and brickbats in equal measure. On the one hand, there are the IIT success stories many of whom go on to head MNCs and found successful businesses in India and abroad. But on the other hand, the rote learning which is de rigueur in most schools has been blamed for the lack of creativity and innovation that the Indian education system is said to suffer from.The ‘system’ has its supporters and its detractors. Into this hugely contested space are a handful of alternative schools that seek to go against the grain. In recent years, these schools have attracted a great deal of attention as many parents seek a more relaxed and humane education system for their children. But doubts and questions about whether what they are doing is right for their child persist. In Breaking the Mould, Kalpana Pathak unpackages the world of alternative schools. She delves deep into their philosophy, practices and curriculum. Extensively, researched, this book will satisfy all doubts that one might have about alternative schools. A directory at the end of the book lists all the alternative schools in the country with their addresses and contact details.All in all, a must-have on the bookshelf of every parent. 109718

In India, about three fourth of the population, still live in Rural areas. The notion that Women in rural Societies enjoy relatively Higher social status appears to be a myth. Gender Discrimination is a social reality irrespective of the Nature of societies and no universally applicable rule exist to measure the degree of status of women in various societies.

The papers included in this book explore recent issues related to the socio-economic position of women in tribal and rural societies.

IndiaInk; New Delhi, India; 2006; 8186939199; First Edition; Paperback; New; 8.5 x 5.5 Inches 
Every Homicide file has one last blank page marked LR. That page is meant for Lalli... Sixtyish and silver-haired, she's officially retired from the force, but she's still their Last Resort when it comes to solving a murder... When Lalli's niece finds herself at Hilla Driver's seaside villa for a foodie weekend, murder is the last thing on her mind. She's too busy falling in love with the cook. Also present are a number of Page 3 regulars: a best-selling novelist, a jazz dancer, a broken-hearted model, a fiery feminist with a dramatic past and a respectable housewife with a sordid one, a doctor with a fashionable practice and an industrialist with a yen for horses... Each with a secret waiting to spill. It should have been a great party. But the cook serves up more than food at the Millennial Banquet. There's murder on the menu and luckily for Hilla, Lalli takes charge. For Lalli is not your ordinary houseguest. Printed Pages: 289. 029130

On the stroke of seven, death annexed Mr Rao.. Building has four floors and four flats on each floor, making sixteen homes in all. Fifteen of these would thrill at the thought of something happening to Mr Rao. Mr Rao made it his business to know everybody and very soon all made it their business not to know him. In curiosity, Mr Rao was a very Elephant's Child. 'Let but a fly fart in Building,'Patherphaker said coarsely, 'Mr Rao knows about it even before the fly does.' Mr Rao believed in the citizen's right to information. From him came the news that Mrs Kamath's gynaecologist had refused to oblige with a fifth abortion, from him why Ramachandran's daughter's wedding was precipitately called off, from him the story behind Patherphaker's premature retirement and from him too the truth about Kumudben's nervous breakdown. Then, just as Building decided something must be done about it. Mr Rao died, upsetting them all. Printed Pages: 219. 108494

India as Reflected in the Divyavadana
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1995; 8121506247; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
Divyavadana is a quite voluminous book written in mixed Sanskrit and belonging to the school of the Sarvastivadh Buddhists. The main emphasis in the text is on the "Buddhist concept of Karma" and the consequent result (phala). Religiosity and charity have been consciously stressed by the author/authors of the text to increase the interaction between the laity and the monastic establishments. Being a student of Buddhist philosophy as well as history, the author has tried to study the text from various angles with a multidisciplinary approach. Some questions have been raised for further research work. The work hopefully will benefit the students of Buddhist studies particularly for the study of changes in thought as well as in religious perception that took place in different Buddhist schools. It will also help the students of ancient Indian history as the text is replete with information on the socio-economic, political and religious ideas and institutions of India during the first few centuries of the Christian era.
