15320 John Keeler
Living Life with Diabetes
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8126528192; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
This book is a personal account and tells the life story of the author, starting from his experience of being diagnosed as diabetic at age four. John Keeler takes us into the mind of someone with a potentially life-threatening condition who has learned that, despite the seemingly rather gloomy prospects, it need not exclude him from participating fully in any activity he chooses to pursue. He highlights the feelings, experiences and the (often overlooked) practical difficulties that need to be addressed in order for diabetics to live a full life. His message is positive, providing reassurance, support and advice for sufferers, their families and friends without diminishing the need for the condition to be taken seriously.Printed Pages: 160. 104730

Murder and Vengeance Among the Gods: Baldr in Scandinavian Mythology (Folklore Fellows Communications 262)
Suomalainen Tiedeakatemia (Academia Scientiarum Fennica)/Bookstore Tiedekirja; Helsinki, Finland; 1997; 9514108094; Softcover; New; 
The death of Baldr and its aftermath comprise the central moment of Scandinavian mythology. This book attempts to make sense of that story in the context of its thirteenth century recording by paying close attention to the texts themselves rather than to hypothetical background in cult or ritual. It elucidates both the literary and probable socio- historical context, and in connection with the latter it draws special attention to the fact that Baldr’s story does not end with his death but always involves acts of vengeance, thus suggesting an involvement with bloodfeud.

15339 John Lipski
A History of Afro-Hispanic Language: Five Centuries, Five Continents
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2005; 0521822653; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 228 x 152 Mm 
The African slave trade, beginning in the fifteenth century, brought African languages into contact with Spanish and Portuguese, resulting in the Africans’ gradual acquisition of these languages. In this book, John Lipski describes the major forms of Afro-Hispanic language found in the Iberian Peninsula and Latin America over the last 500 years. As well as discussing pronunciation, morphology and syntax, he separates legitimate forms of Afro-Hispanic expression from those that result from racist stereotyping, to assess how contact with the African diaspora has had a permanent impact on contemporary Spanish. A principal issue is the possibility that Spanish, in contact with speakers of African languages, may have creolized and restructured - in the Caribbean and perhaps elsewhere - permanently affecting regional and social varieties of Spanish today. The book is accompanied by the largest known anthology of primary Afro-Hispanic texts from Iberia, Latin America, and former Afro-Hispanic contacts in Africa and Asia. • First book in English to provide an overview of the language contact situations that shaped Afro-Hispanic language • Provides a comprehensive coverage of five centuries and five continents of Afro-Hispanic language and cultural encounters • Contains the largest-known anthology of primary texts documenting Afro-Hispanic language Contents 1. Africans in the Iberian Peninsular, the slave trade, and overview of Afro-Iberian linguistic contacts; 2. Early Afro-Portuguese texts; 3. Early Afro-Hispanic texts; 4. Africans in colonial Spanish America; 5. Afro-Hispanic texts from Latin America; 6. Survey of major African language families; 7. Phonetics/phonology of Afro-Hispanic language; 8. Grammatical features of Afro-Hispanic language; 9. The Spanish-creole debate. Printed Pages: 364. 012793

Phonetic Interpretation: Papers in Laboratory Phonology VI
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2004; 0521824028; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 228 x 152 Mm 
Phonetic Interpretation presents innovative work from four core areas: phonological representations and the lexicon, phonetic interpretation and phrasal structure, phonetic interpretation and syllable structure, and phonology and natural speech production. Written by major figures in the fields of phonetics, phonology and speech perception, the chapters in this volume use a wide range of laboratory and instrumental techniques to analyse the production and perception of speech, their aim being to explore the relationship between the sounds of speech and the linguistic organisation that lies behind that. The chapters present evidence of the lively intellectual engagement of laboratory phonology practitioners with the complexities and richness of human language. The book continues the tradition of the series, Papers in Laboratory Phonology, by bringing linguistic theory to bear on an essential problem of linguistics: the relationship between mental models and the physical nature of speech. • Sixth in an extremely well reviewed series of volumes from Laboratory Phonology conferences • An interdisciplinary work which provides analysis of a wide range of languages • Contributions by major figures in the fields Contents 1. Introduction John Local, Richard Ogden and Rosalind Temple; Part I. Phonological Representations and the Lexicon: 1. Interpreting ‘phonetic interpretation’ across the lexicon Mary E. Beckman and Janet Pierrehumbert; 2. Effects on word recognition of syllable-onset cues to syllable-coda voicing Sarah Hawkins and Noël Nguyen; 3.

Hindutva Sex Adventure
IndiaInk/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8186939490; Softcover; New; 
Andrew Luyt, a radio journalist, is posted to India because he was born there and speaks a smattering of Hindi. Armed with his Nagra professional tape recorder and with all the clichés, prejudices and ideas that his strict Protestant and secular upbringing has instilled in him, he covers some important events, of the eighties and the nineties, in Kashmir, Ayodhya, Tawang and Pakistan. Along the way, he falls in love with a young Indian girl, Imla, a print journalist and together they have a number of adventures and some unusual sex. Gradually, as he interprets what he encounters in India, he veers towards a soft Hindutva vision, because he feels Hinduism offers many ways to god and that it is a way of life rather than a religion. Imla, however, remains committed to a secular vision and they often disagree. Thirty years later, Andrew, by now famous both in India and in England, resigns from his job, starts writing books and practising a spirituality that is a blend of Christianity and Hinduism. Andrew has found success and fame but has he found love and friendship? And where is Imla? Printed Pages: 166. 108483

Thoughts on the Policy of the Crown Towards India
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1986; 8121200202; Softcover; New; 
The year 1857 was a turning point in the History of British India. In this year the Sepoy Mutiny broke out, which, though suppressed by force by the then Government of the East India Company, riveted the attention of all educated Englishmen on India. Statesmen, Parliamentarians and people concerned with the welfare of the British nation went deep into the causes of the Mutiny and analysed its immediate and far-reaching impacts on the Military Strength and Financial resources of England. The causes of the disaster were not far to seek. The General maladministration of the Company, their annexation policy, interference with the age-old practice of succession by Adoption among the Indian princes, fear of the Indian people both the Hindus and the Musalmans - that the Government, with the Help of the Christian missionaries, are trying to convert the whole nation into Christianity, Discrimination of the natives from the Englishmen in Civil and military services as well as in the administration of justice, etc. became known as the causes behind the Mutiny. The future of the Indian Empire appeared to be grim to all right thinking persons in England.As a result of this retrospection and debate at home, the British Government of Queen Victoria decided to act to the right direction. Then came the Queen's Proclamation, the India Bill was passed by the British Parliament, the time-honoured administration of the East India Company swept away, the Government of India was transferred to the Crown, and a reponsible Ministry for India established. The Queen's Proclamation was welcomed both in England and in India. It promised redress to all the above mentioned grievances and to establish an impartial clean Government for the Indians.The present work, written by a contemporary British thinker, is an interpretative Study of the Queen's proclamation and the post-mutiny Policy of the Crown towards India. It takes up the Proclamation, section by section, and analyses the various promises contained therein. To make the subject properly understandable, the author has described the conditions existing prior to the Mutiny and the grievances of the people on various accounts, in great details. The work is a record of the state of affirs before and after the Reforms and an interpretation of the Policies of the British Government towards India.The work has been reprinted from the 1859 Edition in view of its Importance as source material for the study of the evolution of British Raj in India.Printed Pages: 384. 105654

The Impossible is Possible
Orient Paperbacks; New Delhi, India; 8122204805; Softcover; New; 
Doing What Others Say Can't Be Done!Deep inside you lives an impossible thought. A dream longing to come true. There's a mission residing in you... Yet something holds you back... perhaps it is indecision or the fear of unknown, risk, faith, friends, the past mistakes, indecision, or something you can't really pin down.Almost everything we enjoy today was impossible yesterday. So, what transforms an impossible into a possibility, a possibility into a probability, and probability into a fact?For many years 'safety first' has been the motto of human race... but it has never been the motive of the doers, leaders and dreamers. Doers, whether leaders or dreamers must take risk and stick their neck out... Being destined for greatness requires you to take risks, confront the unexpected and play your shots. For you will always miss 100 per cent of the shots you don't take. When your chances are slim and none... go for the slim.Printed Pages: 200. 106696

Picturing India: People, Places and the World of the East India Company
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2017; 8193393546; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The British engagement with India was an intensely visual one. Images of the subcontinent, produced by artists and travellers in the eighteenth- and nineteenth-century heyday of the East India Company, reflect the increasingly important role played by the Company in Indian life. And they mirror significant shifts in British policy and attitudes towards India. The Company's story is one of wealth, power, and the pursuit of profit. It changed what people in Europe ate, what they drank, and how they dressed. Ultimately, it laid the foundations of the British Raj. Few historians have considered the visual sources that survive and what they tell us about the link between images and empire, pictures and power. This book draws on the unrivalled riches of the British Library - both visual and textual - to tell that history. It weaves together the story of individual images, their creators, and the people and events they depict. And, in doing so, it presents a detailed picture of the Company and its complex relationship with India, its people and cultures. Printed Pages: 224. 116770

The Reconstruction of the Church of Ireland: Bishop Bramhall and the Laudian Reforrms, 1633-1641
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2007; 052164318X; First Edition; Hardcover; Brand New; Brand New; 228 x 152 Mm 
Thomas Wentworth landed in Ireland in 1633 - almost 100 years after Henry VIII had begun his break with Rome. The majority of the people were still Catholic. William Laud had just been elevated to Canterbury. A Yorkshire cleric, John Bramhall, followed the new viceroy and became, in less than one year, Bishop of Derry. This study, which is centered on Bramhall, examines how these three men embarked on a policy for the established church which represented not only a break with a century of reforming tradition but which also sought to make the tiny Irish church a model for the other Stuart kingdoms. Dr McCafferty shows how accompanying canonical changes were explicitly implemented for notice and eventual adoption in England and Scotland. However within eight years the experiment was blown apart and reconstruction denounced as subversive. Wentworth, Laud and Bramhall faced consequent disgrace, trial, death or exile. • The first book-length study of the Church of Ireland in the 1630s • A major contribution to debates about the trajectory of religious change in the decades before the Civil War • Takes a ‘Three kingdoms’ approach including comparisons with policy in England and Scotland Contents 1. Introduction; 2. The temporalities campaign, 1633–40; 3. The convocation of 1634 and its aftermath; 4. Mechanisms of reconstruction and the problem of dissent; 5. Downfall of the settlement, 1640–1; 6. Conclusion; Appendix: three letters; Bibliography; Index. Printed Pages: 320 with 5 tables and 1 map. 018624

Among the most popular of all African-American folktales is the story folklorists know as “The Coon in the Box”, itself a derivative of the extremely old and widespread narrative usually identified, after the Brothers Grimm, as “Doctor Know-All” (Doktor Allwissend) (AaTh 1641). Not coincidentally, this item has served as a centerpiece in the debate over the sources of New World black folktales. A detailed analysis of “The Coon in the Box”, its life history and cultural context thus reveals a great deal not only of the nature of African-American oral narratives in and of themselves, but also of the challenges confronting scholars in investigating the origins, diffusion, and development of these traditions.

Epic Poems and Puranas
Sundeep Prakashan; New Delhi, India; 1988; 8185066132; Hardcover; New; New; 
This is by an English Prof. Of Sanskrit Oxford University who made an examination of Sacred books of Asia. He choose two of our Puranas, our Epic Poems, Mahabharata and the Vishnu Purana?. The meaning of Examination was that to find as to what these secred books were contained for the reality even for the present day contex. The Puranas, there are many puranas which described through the pages of this book and each purana has its own importance of law and principle. Vishnu Puranas generally considered as the Secred book of Hindus. Composing these Puranas took considerable time and for the Purpose of reciting in praise of legendary actions of heroes. But Vishnu Puranas is inherently related to some of the most important hymns in Rig Veda. We as Indian people will have to live with these heritages of Puranas and many of them are truly inspiring and attracted to its incidental narrations such as the Mahabharata. Its the worlds lengthiest epic of its kind. Reading this book is an experience and gain of knowledge in what we usually seen with our own eyes and believed as to what we have seen. The present age is modern and far advance and it may be that perhaps the Mahabharata is considered war for the triumph of good over evil. In was known that century ago there was a false propganda against religion and create hatred against each others religion. The Parliament of Religions of 1893 at Chicago in the United States the Religion was the most important. It alone brings the happiness. It declared. Therefore The Mahabharata was an important choice among those present in the Parliament of Religion. Printed Pages: 254. 112722

Topography of Assam
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1986; 8172680759; Hardcover; New; New; 
The north eastern part of India offers a fascinating study to the researcher. It is a unique area in more senses than one. The ruggedness of the area, the climatic diversities of the hills and the plains, the vastness of rivers and their effect on the economy, the richness of colorful tribal life and the wealth of mineral and other resources are geographer delight. Information on all these aspects lies in different books and treatises that have been written from time to time. The chief merit of the present book, first published in 1837, is that it offers a view off all these aspects in a concise manner. This is no comprehensive anthropological study even though the cultural and demographic trends among the sons of the soil have been outlined to provide a clear perspective of the subject covered. Economic life of any area is obviously related to the special features of is geography. Naturally, therefore, along with information on economic, trade, revenue, and wild life aspects a through study has been made of the geographical features of all major towns and the country side. The section on hill tribes of Assam is quite comprehensive and gives an intimate account of the life of the local people, their customs, arts and religious and social pattern.
