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

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

15448 Kay Ambrose; Introduction By Ram Gopa; Foreword By Arnold Haskell
Classical Dances and Costumes of India
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8121512425; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 23 x 29 Cm 
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

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.

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.

The Flight of the Garuda: The Dzogchen Teachings of Tibetan Buddhism (Second Edition)
Wisdom Publications; Boston, USA; 0861713672; Revised Edition; Paperback; New; 6 x 9 Inches 
Dzogchen, a tradition of the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism, is considered by many to be an extremely powerful path to enlightenment. This ground-breaking book offers translations of four sacred texts of the Dzogchen tradition: Secret Instruction in a Garland of Vision, The Flight of the Garuda, Emptying the Depths of Hell, and the Wish-Granting Prayer of Kuntu Zangpo. With an informative introduction by the translator, Flight of the Garuda is an invaluable resource for both practice and scholarship. Flight of the Garuda conveys the heart advice of one of the most beloved nonsectarian masters of Tibet. Ordained as a Gelug monk, the itinerant yogi Shabkar was renowned for his teachings on Dzogchen, the heart practice of the Nyingma lineage. He wandered the countryside of Tibet and Nepal, turning many minds toward the Dharma through his ability to communicate the essence of the teachings in a poetic and crystal-clear way. Buddhists of all stripes, including practitioners of Zen and Vipassana, will find ample sustenance within the pages of this book, and be thrilled by the lyrical insights conveyed in Shabkar''s words. Along with the song by Shabkar, translator Keith Dowman includes several other seminal Dzogchen texts. Dzogchen practice brings us into direct communion with the subtlemost nature of our experience, the unity of samsara in nirvana as experienced within our own consciousness. Within the Nyingma school, it is held higher than even the practices of tantra for bringing the meditator face to face with the nature of reality. Printed Pages: 240. 010940

Natural Perfection: Longchenpa's Radical Dzogchen
Wisdom Publications; Boston, USA; 2010; 086171640X; First Edition; Paperback; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Dzogchen, or the “Great Perfection,” is considered by many to be the apex of Tibetan Buddhism, and Longchen Rabjam is the most celebrated of all the saints of this remarkable tradition. Natural Perfection presents the radical precepts of Dzogchen, pointing the way to absolute liberation from conceptual fetters, and leading the practitioner to a state of pure, natural integration into one's true being. Transcending the Tibetan context or even the confines of Buddhist tradition, Longchen Rabjam delivers a manual full of practical wisdom. Natural Perfection is a shining example of why people have continued to turn to the traditions of Tibet for spiritual and personal transformation and realization. Keith Dowman's illuminating translation of this remarkable work of wisdom provides clear accessibility to the profound path of Dzogchen in the here-and-now. Printed Pages: 336. 033970

Islands: Short Stories
Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789384030322; Softcover; New; 
Keki N. Daruwallas short stories circle around islands-solitary tracts of land, self-contained mini-continents. Sometimes, these autonomous landmasses are conjured up in a sadhus third-eye- Yogananda builds them like he would a dream scape. Sometimes, they transform into objects of desire – Arnaaz sails towards the declining sun, in search of an islet of aloneness and youth. Sometimes, they come with the promise of abundance – Vidyarthi scours his reef for a magic shrub. And sometimes, they silently disappear – Santa Xavier is swept away by blustery winds and rumours.Through these stories, each linked, each disparate, Daruwalla asks what it means to abandon an island or inhabit one. He also asks what it means to allow an island to sail within us. For each of the characters is on a private journey, a reclusive flight inwards, towards an isle of peace, an isle beyond questions of faith and unbelief, an isle past remembrance and forgetting.Ultimately, each character is an island unto himself or herself, from the retiring vagrant on bird island, to Dinaz, feeling her way on her own through a fast receding past, to the wild Khampa, severed from his people, who realises there must be worse things than being alone, but I dont know what they are.In these short stories, Daruwallas love for the sea becomes evident, as also his yearning for a kind of solitude, which evades us in this overcrowded century. Equally, in a style rich in humour, irony and compassion, his preoccupation with the modern human condition comes to the fore-its drift away from an anchoring mainland, its island-like seclusion, its quiet search for fullness. 109671

Daniell Comes to Judgement: New and Vintage Daruwalla
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2016; 9789385285592; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Daniell Comes to Judgment: New and Vintage Daruwalla is a collection of short stories by Keki N. Daruwalla, the acclaimed poet-cum-novelist of our time. There are new stories here written especially for this book in a span of less than two months and perennial favourites (of vintage worth) still relevant in today's changed times. The collection showcases the author's enduring range.The new stories are first person narratives and, with the exception of one, voices of women-city women-putting into words their moods and memories. The author has deliberately shunned the violence-factor in this collection. In fact 'Bars', a story included in this volume, is a commentary on the forces of intolerance straining the social fabric. Coming to the perennial favourites, they are Vintage Keki Daruwalla; vignettes from the vast repository of a wordsmith who can straddle myth and reality with ease and finesse, breathe life into metaphors, coalesce fact and fancy and still sound fascinatingly credible, with his patent black humour well in place. The collection includes stories where fantasy and myth transport one to the pre-language, pre-script era; to amphibious trains and an island of birds. In short, the master storyteller weaves his magic yet again. Printed Pages: 216. 111054

Women Mystics and Sufi Shrines in India
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8121512859; First Indian Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
Women Mystics and Sufi Shrines in India combines historical data with years of ethnographic fieldwork to investigate women’s participation in the culture of Sufi shrines in India and the manner in which this participation both complicates and sustains traditional conceptions of Islamic womanhood. Kelly Pemberton grounds her firsthand research into India’s Sufi shrines and saints by setting her observations against the historical backdrop of colonist-era discourses by British civil servants. Orientalist scholars, and Muslim reformists and the assumptive portrayals of women’s activities in the milieu of Sufi orders and shrines inherent in these accounts. These early narratives, Pemberton holds, are driven by social, economic, intellectual, and political undercurrents of self-interest that shaped Western understanding of Indian Muslims and, in particular, of women’s participation in the institutions of Sufism. Pemberton’s research offers a corrective by assessing the contemporary circumstances under which a woman may be recongnized as a spiritual authority or guide—despite official denial of such status—and by examining the discrepancies between the commonly held belief that women cannot perform in the public setting of shrines and her own observations of women doing precisely that. She demonstrates that the existence of multiple models of master and disciple relationships have opened avenues for women to be recognized as spiritual authorities in their own right. Specifically Pemberton explores the work of performance, recitation, and ritual meditation carried out by women connected with Sufi orders through kinship and spiritual ties, and she maps shifting ideas about women’s involvement in public ritual events in a variety of contexts, circumstances, and genres of performance. She also highlights the private petitioning of saints, the Prophet, and God performed by poor women of low social standing in Bihar Sharif. These women are often perceived as being exceptionally close to God yet are compelled to operate outside the public sphere of major shrines. Printed Pages: 261. 037923

The Syntax of (In)dependence
The MIT Press; Cambridge, Massachussets, USA; 2004; 0262693003; First Edition; Paperback; New; 15.5 Cms x 23 Cms 
One of the most important discoveries of modern linguistic theory is that abstract structural properties of utterances place subtle restrictions on how we can use a given form or description. For the past thirty years, these restrictions have been explored for possible clues to the exact nature of the structural properties in question. In The Syntax of (In)dependence Ken Safir explores these structural properties and develops a theory of dependent identity interpretations that also leads to new empirical generalizations. These generalizations range across a wide class of empirical phenomena, including the distribution of crossover effects, bound variables in ellipsis, functional answers to questions, resumptive pronoun constructions, (anti-) reconstruction effects, and proxy readings. Safir approaches these interpretive issues from the perspective that the structural properties of all natural languages reflect an innate linguistic capacity, as embodied in Universal Grammar (UG). This monograph explores the way a particular syntactic restriction imposed by UG limits the range of dependent identity interpretations a sentence can have and hence the range of possible entailments it can have on the basis of these anaphoric interpretations. Although certain of these interpretations may be favored by manipulating a discourse, the work focuses on interpretive restrictions that cannot be repaired by discourse accommodation. More specifically, Safir's main proposal is dependent identity interpretations are restricted by a c-command prohibition and not by a c-command licensing condition-- that c-command does not license dependencies but plays a role in ruling them out. Although cross-linguisitic discussion in the main text is very limited, Safir adds an appendix on scrambling and reconstruction that focuses on scrambling in Hindi. Ken Safir is Professor of Linguistics at Rutgers University. Printed Pages: 206. 003476
