Blooming English: Observations on the Roots, Cultivation and Hybrids of the English Language
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2004; 0521548322; First Edition; Paperback; New; 247 x 174 Mm 
English is the most creative, changeable and imaginative of languages. Some words are invented to meet temporary needs and are quickly discarded; others carry meanings hundreds of years old. Language fascinates us, and we spend a lot of time playing with it, concocting everything from puns, riddles and secret languages to wonderful prose and poetry. We also worry about it a great deal, looking up and checking words in dictionaries and usage guides, occasionally arguing about definitions. Blooming English celebrates our capacity to play with language, as well as examining the ways we use it: in slang and jargon, swearing, speaking the unspeakable, or concealing unpleasant or inconvenient facts. It can be used for browsing, for finding beguiling snippets about language, history and social customs, and can be a formidable weapon in word games. • A book for all lovers of the English language • Focuses on the quirks and oddities of English and explains how they came about • Easy and enjoyable to read; genuinely accessible to the non-linguist Contents 1. Why a garden?; 2. The complexity of language; 3. Language change; 4. Word creation; 5. Meaning shifts; 6. Relics of linguistic change; 7. The nature of exotics; 8. Bad language; 9. Colloquial today, Standard English tomorrow; 10. Our untidy English; 11. Sound symbolism; 12. What is correct English?; 13. Dictionaries, style guides and grammars; 14. Personal names; 15.

Management of Cerebral Palsy: A Transdisciplinary Approach
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2006; 0761933972; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Children with a debilitating condition like cerebral palsy receive treatment from a variety of specialised therapists at once. This book documents and builds on the experiences of a team of special educators in south India, who have been experimenting with a new strategy for working with children with disabilities. In this approach, rehabilitation workers are trained in physiotherapy, occupational therapy, and speech and language therapy, thereby preparing them to serve as `Trandisciplinary’ workers. These workers are thus equipped to offer each child a holistic treatment programme and more relevant integrated care for a range of disabilities. Termed the Trandisciplinary (TD) approach, this method is even more pertinent to India and other developing countries where the numbers are large and the resources few, thereby making this method effective and accessible to many more. While sharing the learning from this experiment, the author: - describes how the model of the Transdisciplinary approach was conceptualised and implemented—including the development of an innovative `TD course`; - illustrates, with case studies, how the TD approach is based on a lifespan perspective and allows the family to function as naturally as possible, while still successfully addressing the needs of a child with a disability; - argues that the TD approach, with its continuous give-and-take among stakeholders, makes the disabled person a partner in the treatment plan and is an improvement over the existing model that focuses primarily on medical services; and - puts into perspective the role of the professional rehabilitation worker in the context of the understanding of disability today.

Business Icons Who Changed the World
Jaico Publishing House; Delhi, India; 8184950985; Softcover; New; 
Business icons, moguls, tycoons the people who create and master industries, bringing them to their fullest fruition are usually many different things to different people.

From Martha Stewart to Ted Turner, Oprah Winfrey to Anita Roddick, Business Icons Who Changed the World offers indepth profiles of the business leaders whose names and products have become household words.

Coalition Politics and Hindu Nationalism
Routledge; London, UK; 0415359813; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Religious influence in contemporary politics offers a fertile ground for political-sociological analysis, especially in societies where religion is a very important source of collective identity. In South Asian societies religion can, and often has, provided legitimacy to both governments and those who oppose them. This book examines the emergence of the BJP and the ways in which the Hindu nationalist agenda has been affected by the constraints of being a dominant member of a coalition government. The collected authors take stock of the party's first full term in power, presiding over the diverse forces of the governing NDA coalition, and the 2004 elections. They assess the BJP's performance in relation to its stated goals, and more specifically how it has fared in a range of policy fields--centre-state relations, foreign policy, defence policies, the 'second generation' of economic reforms, initiatives to curb corruption and the fate of minorities. Explicitly linking the volume to literature on coalition politics, this book will be of great importance to students and researchers in the fields of comparative politics and South Asian studies and politics.

Fields of Victory: Vijayanagara and the Course of Intensification
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2000; 8121509181; First Indian Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 23 Cms x 29 Cms 
Vijayanagara, the "city of victory," was the capital city of an expansive empire which lay claim to large tracts of land in southern India between the fourteenth and seventeenth centuries AD. For the approximately two hundred years of existence, Vijayanagara was not merely a political center, it was also a population center and a locus of production, trade and consumption. The dry interior districts of northern Karnataka, which supported this great city, pose special challenges to agricultural production; the success of the city depended on meeting these challenges. This volume considers the diverse repertoire of agricultural strategies practiced by Vijayanagara food producers, using evidence from original research on archaeology, palaeocology, and written texts. A primary focus of the volume is the process of agricultural intensification, a process critically important to both the initial founding of the city and its dramatic expansion in the early sixteenth century. The author argues that understanding the course or path of intensification is critically important and an essential prerequisite to coming to terms with competing causal models for agricultural change.

Multilingual Education Works: From the Periphery to the Centre
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8125041168; Softcover; New; 
For the last century or more, Western and Northern models of education have dominated countries of the South/South-East. These have seldom borne fruit in Africa, South America, South and South-East Asia becaause linguistic diversity and indigenous or organically developed educational practices have been largely overlooked. Such models have not met the needs of linguistically diverse communities on the margins. This volume responds to that challenge. It demonstrates successful practices in multilingual education, responsive to local conditions and with community participation, in low-income countries, even within limited budgetary investment. The examples in this volume foreground the systematic use of the mother tongue/local language, alongside an international language of wider communication and possibly a third language with regional or national significance. The case studies identify what works, as well as the risks and vulnerabilities. The West and North have much to learn from the practices presented and what the research contributes towards current theories in linguistics and education.Printed Pages: 376. 101835

A Wilderness of Possibilities: Urdu Studies in Transnational Perspective
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0195670205; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
Over the past forty years the study of Urdu literature has played a dynamic role in contemporary discourses on culture and history, reaching out to a far-flung international community of scholars. The ten essays in this volume, assembled for Professor C. M. Naim, a pioneer of Urdu studies in the United States, exemplify the changing place of Urdu in the world today. They discuss diverse aspects of Urdu and Persian literature and poetry, between the sixteenth and twentieth centuries. The focus is mainly on Urdu poetry offering a comprehensive introduction to the sociology, culture and politics of its enchanting and complex world but it also includes essays on travelogues, print journalism and a play. In the first part, contributors explore the divergent social and political spaces that Urdu literature has occupied through the centuries. In the second, they critique the paradigms that have informed Urdu literary history and point to new methodologies of reading. Pillars of poetry like Ghalib and Iqbal, women writing from the zanana, popular dramatists, travellers to Britain, and modern novelists form the subjects of this wide-ranging collection. The contributors are specialists in the field and include such distinguished scholars as Kumkum Sangari, Barbara Metcalf, Gail Minault, and Aditya Behl as well as new scholars in the field doing some really interesting work such as Ramya Sreenivasan. The authors use a combination of approaches: while some articles focus on well-known texts, others focus on individual poets and writers. The book includes lucid new translations of texts not yet available to English readers. It will interest all scholars and students of South Asian cultural history and literary studies.

The Retreat of Democracy and Other Itinerant Essays on Globalization, Economics, and India
Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2007; 8178241919; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
This accessible and stimulating book on some of the major political and economic issues of our time will delight all readers and astonish anyone who thinks economics is unconnected with literary elegance. An eminent Professor of Economics with extensive research in theoretical economics at Cornell, Kaushik Basu has over the past decade also consolidated his already considerable reputation as a writer who can explain complex issues with disarming ease. This book contains an expanded and reworked selection of his best journalistic writings on politics and economic themes since the late 1990s. The book begins with the author’s widely-cited essays on globalization and democracy. These argue that while economic globalization is occurring at breakneck speed and offers large potential benefits, political globalization has been painfully slow. This represents a dangerous combination of events, a byproduct of which can be the retreat of global democracy and the emergence of political instability. The book goes on to traverse a wide terrain—ideas in economics, anthropological observations on social norms, the role of culture, and travel in India and abroad. Two recurring themes crisscross the essays. First, that the ultimate objective of policymaking must be the progress of the most disadvantaged; yet simultaneously that to ignore market laws and individual incentives is to court failure. Second, that for the successful crafting of economic policy it is important to recognize markets as embedded in specific cultures and social norms. Included here—alongside essays on major economists such as Amartya Sen and Joseph Stiglitz—are humorous essays on everyday encounters with Indian bureaucracy. These function in part as allegories of the Kafkaesque stranglehold of political structures on the individual. They caution us against the presumptions of individual freedom on which traditional economics is founded. Printed Pages: 292. 031573

Collected Papers in Theoretical Economics: Volume I: Development, Markets, and Institutions
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0195667611; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The field of development economics has witnessed dramatic change over the past two or three decades. The subject, though still among the most challenging sub-disciplines of economics, has drawn on the benefits of the rise of game theoretic methods, strategic analysis, and the availability of new data-sets. It not only entails the use of good eocnomic theory but also requires that the researchers keep an anthropologist's eye on reality. This collection illustrates Basu's method of research well as it comments on a range of contentious subjects, such as the design of policy to combat child labour, the role of social norms in explaining why certain unwanted economic institutions persist, and how literacy ought to be measured. Besides providing easy access for students of economics especially in developing countries--to the author's major papers in the fiel d of theoretical development--the book will be of immense interest to professional economists, policy-makers, and economic journalists.

India's Emerging Economy: Performance and Prospects in the 1990s and Beyond
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0195677900; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
India's economy over the last decade looks in many ways like a success story after a major economic crisis in 19 91, followed by bold reform measures, the economy has experienced a rapid economic growth rate, more foreign investment, and a boom in the information technology sector. Yet many in the country still suffer from crushing poverty, and social and political unrest remains a problem. These essays by leading academics, policymakers, and industrialists examine India's recent economic sucesses and their social and cultural context. India's rate of economic growth after the 1991 reforms were instituted reached a remarkable 7 percent for three consecutive years, from 1994 to 1997. Several contributors to the volume ask what this means for the nation as a whole. In his essay 'Democracy and Secularism in India', Amartya Sen argues that economic progress is not the only way to measure a nation's performance. Other contributors examine the actual effect India's economic growth has had on reducing poverty and recommend policies to empower the poor. The essays also address such issues as globali zation and the vulnerabilities and opportunities it creates, India's experience with monetary and fiscal reform, the rapid growt.

The Oxford Companion to Economics in India (Revised Edition)
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2009; Revised Edition; Paperback; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
In today’s complex and fast evolving environment, understanding India’s economy is not just an intellectual challenge, but, with the country emerging as a major global player, also a requirement. This unique volume, the first comprehensive resource of its kind on the contemporary Indian economy, aims to address this need. Culled from the collective wisdom and experience of over 200 distinguished contributors, that include economists, business leaders, policymakers, and analysts, the Companion covers the evolution of the Indian economy from relative obscurity to an emergent global force. The more than 200 entries span the recent cover stories of India’s high growth, leadership in software and information technology, and outsourcing success, and also document the backwaters—the widespread poverty, farmer suicides, child labour, and the large and impoverished informal sector that houses a majority of India’s labour force. The revised edition, a testimonial to the dynamism that epitomizes ‘the Indian economy’, includes several new topics that have grown in significance since the first edition was planned; and several revised entries on topics that have undergone rapid transformation during the short time since the first edition was written.

The Oxford Companion to Modern Warfare in India: From the Eighteenth Century to Present Times
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2009; 0195698886; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
India’s colonial experience and contemporary geo-strategic significance makes the genesis of modern warfare in the subcontinent crucial to the understanding of international military history. Providing a comprehensive account, this Companion explores the transition in warfare especially focusing on strategy, technology, tactics, and the socio-political impact of modern warfare in the subcontinent from its inception in the 1740s till the present times. Beginning with the study of differences between western and pre-colonial warfare, the modernization of the Indian army, its role during the two world wars, and inside the subcontinent during the freedom struggle, the volume surveys the nineteenth and the first half of the twentieth centuries. Bringing the narrative up to recent times, it analyses the events of the post-Independence era. Focusing on the interaction between military bureaucracy, technology, and society, it surveys the Indo-Pak wars, the Indo-Chinese frontier, the role of the IPKF in Sri Lanka, the Nuclear Question and the Kargil war, and the developments in northeast and Kashmir. Challenging the Euro-centrism in the available literature, the volume offers cross-cultural analyses by comparing the evolution of warfare with other parts of Eurasia. It underlines the new approaches and debates in the writing of military history. 027592

Bollywood Today
Lustre Press/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8174365079; Hardcover; New; New; 
Hollywood may define our idea of movies, but it is the city of Bombay on the west coast of India that is now the centre of world cinema. Every year, the Indian film industry produces more than 1,000 feature films; every day, 14 million Indians go to a movie in the country; a billion more people a year buy tickets for Indian movies than for Hollywood ones. The rise of Bombay as the film capital of the world has been both remarkable and amazing. Bollywood movies themselves are a self-contained world, with their multiple song and dance routines, intense melodrama, and plots that contain everything from farce to tragedy, but always produce a happy ending. The men and women who created these movies are even more remarkable; and it is this fantastic, rich, diverse story, a veritable Indian fairyland, that Mihir Bose, a native of Bombay, narrates with vivid brilliance in the first comprehensive history of this major social and cultural phenomenon.

Hindu College Delhi: A People’s Movement
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 9789383098286; Hardcover; New; New; 
Hindu College Delhi: A People’s Movement is the first-ever illustrated history of Hindu College, Delhi, a premier institution founded in 1899. The continued struggle for doing well and survival only underlines the great commitment of its founding fathers, the teachers and the students in the early years. The college had to face several odds and a hostile administration, which feared the patriotic fervour of the college, providing a hub for the national leaders to address the youth of the country. The college groomed great nationalists ready to take on the British regime. This hostility made the college authorities more resolute to succeed. It is no wonder that the college has produced some of the most illustrious alumni who have contributed to different fields resulting in the overall progress of our country. The essence of more than three years of relentless pursuit of authentic material from individuals, libraries, archives and location visits has been finally distilled in the form of this book. Extensive research led to the discovery of archival documents, invaluable photographs and miscellaneous unknown facts about the college that were hidden in the labyrinths of time. Much of these have been presented in this book and is bound to appeal to both the older and present generation of people who are linked in some way to the prestigious Hindu College.Printed Pages: 187 with 194 colour photographs. 106584

Civilising Natures: Race, Resources and Modernity in Colonial South India
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8125025863; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Science, both as a scholarly discipline and as a concept in the popular imagination, was critical to building hegemony in the British Empire. It also inspired alternative ideas of progress by elites and the disenfranchised: these competing spectres continue to haunt postcolonial modernities. Why and how has science so powerfully shaped both the common sense of individuals and the development of postcolonial states? Philip suggests that our ideas of race and resources are key. Civilising Natures tells us how race and nature are fundamental to understanding colonial modernities, and along the way, it complicates our understandings of the relationships between science and religion, pre-modern and civilised, environment and society.

The Language of Secular Islam: Urdu Nationalism and Colonial India
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8125050183; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Language of Secular Islam pursues an alternative account of the political disagreements between Hindus and Muslims in South Asia, conflicts too often described as the product of primordial and unchanging attachments to religion. The author suggests that the political struggles of India in the 1930s, the very decade in which the demand for Pakistan began to be articulated, should not be understood as the product of an inadequate or incomplete secularism, but as the clashing of competing secular agendas. Her work explores negotiations over language, education, and religion at Osmania University, the first university in India to use a modern Indian language (Urdu) as its medium of instruction in all academic subjects.Grounded in close attention to historical evidence, The Language of Secular Islam has broad ramifications for some of the most difficult issues currently debated in the humanities and social sciences: the significance and legacies of European colonialism, the inclusions and exclusions enacted by nationalist projects, the place of minorities in the forging of Indian nationalism, and the relationship between religion and modern politics. It will be of interest to historians of colonial India, scholars of religion, and anyone who follows language politics.Printed Pages: 248. 101936

The Classical Dance and Costumes of India by Kay Ambrose steers clear of the twin evils of writing: the learned writing for the learned and the dilettante writing for others of his class. It treats the four classical schools of Indian dance—Bharata Natyam, Kathakali, Kathak and Manipuri—with understanding and objectivity. The reader is provided with a sketch of Indian mythology and music before he is exposed to the dance proper, which are presented in such a manner that none will experience any difficulty in learning the divine and mundane aspects of these schools of dance. The chapter on the costumes of India gives not only idea of the correct costumes of the particular schools of dance but also of the endless variety and rich colour of Indian costumes. In addition to classical dances, the reader is given a taste of Indian folk dances and dances of Ceylon. The technical sketches more than supplement the text. The reader will not only be able to understand the various dance styles but recognize them while witnessing public performances. A few, if they try hard, may be able even to demonstrate authentic dance styles. Clarity and economy of expression coupled with accuracy of illustration are the hallmarks of this book which no dance-lover should miss. Printed Pages: 94. 037957

Militralisation of Space
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2010; 9789380502076; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The first three chapters of the book examines the evolution of space for military use; the study of the legal framework governing the use of outer space that has enabled the militarisation of space; and the complexities of defining the fine line that separates militarisation and weaponisation of space. Chapter Four and Five provide an in-depth coverage on the military space capabilities of China and select Asian countries. Chapter Six highlights India’s civilian space capabilities. It argues that notwithstanding the complex regional geo-political and geo-strategic environment, India has shown restraint in its space programme for military purposes. Chapter Seven examines the exploitation of ‘near space’ as a transformational medium that has the potential to change the war-fighting capabilities of nations. Chapter Eight illustrates the intricate relationship between missile defence and space. The concluding chapter draws out the likely scenarios in the future uses of outer space in the context of various political, technical and military challenges that may hamper India’s march towards exploration and exploitation of outer space for its national development and security.Printed Pages: 344. 104405

Treasury of the True Dharma Eye: Zen Master Dogen's Shobo Genzo
Shambhala; Boston, USA; 2013; 1590309359; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This monumental work is considered to be one of the most profound expressions of Zen wisdom ever put on paper, and also the outstanding literary and philosophical work of Japan. It is a collection of essays by Eihei Dogen (1200–1253), founder of Zen’s Soto school. Kazuaki Tanahashi and a team of translators that represent a Who’s Who of American Zen have produced a translation of the great work that combines accuracy with a deep understanding of Dogen’s voice and literary gifts. This volume includes a wealth of materials to aid understanding, including maps, lineage charts, a bibliography, and an exhaustive glossary of names and terms—and, as a bonus, the most renowned of all Dogen’s essays, Recommending Zazen to All People.

Surya Siddhanta
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8124607982; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The Surya Siddhanta is one of the earliest astronomical texts of the ancient India. Under the tradition of Upanishads, the Surya Siddhanta reveals the knowledge of the planetary motion of the solar system directly given by the Sun god to Mayasura, subsequently passed down in oral form. Later on Varahamihira (ce 505-87) discussed the doctrine of Surya Siddhanta in his book on Pancasiddhantika. The present Hindi translation of the Sanskrit verses of Surya Siddhanta is based on the famous English translations by Reverend Ebenezer Burgess (1860) and Pt. Bapu Deva Sastry (1861). Significant coverage in the fourteen chapters of the book is on units of time, length of the year of gods and demons, day and night of Brahma, the elapsed period since creation, planetary eastwards movement and sidereal revolution. The lengths of the earth’s diameter, circumference are also given. Eclipses and colour of the moon’s eclipsed portion are mentioned. The appendices provide the modern aspect on these topics. The researchers of ancient astronomy and others may find it an interesting reading.Printed Pages: 158. 100311

Agriculture in Developing Countries: Technology Issues
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0761936629; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Agriculture in Developing Countries: Technology Issues presents an experimental approach of testing new possibilities and combinations to match the changes taking place in the agricultural production environment of developing countries. While emphasizing the importance of combining scientific and indigenous knowledge, this book argues that sustained agricultural development can be achieved only by promoting farmers` participation in technology development. It provides empirical evidence for this, using recent primary data from across Asia. This book is topical considering that the agriculture scenario in many countries has been undergoing a transformation due to various factors such as changes in governments` macroeconomic policies and climatic variations. The book also highlights that in order to minimize the negative impact of farmers` own yield gaps (the difference between farmers` own potential and actual yields) on their income levels, it is important that new approaches to agricultural technological development be employed in the form of more opportunities rather than a single crop production technology.
