China and the Developing World: Beijing's Strategy for the Twenty-First Century
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2010; 9789380502151; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
China's relationship with the developing world is a fundamental part of the country's larger foreign policy strategy. Sweeping changes both within and outside China's borders and the transformation of geopolitics since the end of the cold war have spurred Beijing to reevaluate its strategies and objectives in the developing world. This is the first full-length treatment in nearly two decades of China's relationship with the developing world. The introductory materials and first chapter of the book provide a general overview and framework of analysis for this important aspect of Chinese policy. The second part of the book presents systematic examinations of China's relationships, with coverage of Africa, Central Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, South Asia, and Southeast Asia. The volume concludes with a look into the future of Chinese foreign policy.Printed Pages: 254. 104411

Hanuman: The Heroic Monkey God
Jaico Publishing House; Delhi, India; 8184955146; Softcover; New; 
The timeless story of Hanuman, the monkeygod, is that of a valiant superhero best known for battling the demon Ravana in the classic tale Ramayana. But there is much more to know about Hinduism’s bravest, most endearing figure. As a youth, Hanuman’s pranks often led him into trouble with the village elders. Eventually they cast a spell, causing him to forget his immense powers. In a cursed state of ignorance, young Hanuman believed himself to be just an ordinary monkey. He realized his potential as a warrior only later, while rescuing Sita, the kidnapped wife of Rama, from the clutches of Ravana.Although Hanuman developed mesmerizing mystic abilities as he matured, it is his sensitivity and devotion to King Rama that make him such a memorable character.Printed Pages: 96. 105356

15504 Joshua Key & Lawrence Hill (Authors)
The Deserter's Tale
Lotus/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8174365095; Hardcover; New; New; 
When Joshua Key enlisted in the US army, he believed in his country and the integrity of his government, and never imagined he would lose that belief. A family man from a conservative background in Guthrie, Oklahoma, Key enlisted in 2002 to learn a trade and provide financial security for his family. He believed he would not be deployed unless World War III broke out. A year later, President George W. Bush ordered the invasion of Iraq. In spring 2003, Key was sent to Ramadi as part of the 43rd Combat Engineer Company of the Second Squadron, 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment. The war he found himself participating in was not the campaign against terrorists and evildoers he had expected. Key saw Iraqi civilians beaten, shot, and killed or maimed for little or no provocation. Nearly every other night, he participated in raids on homes he was told were harboring terrorists - never finding evidence of terrorist activity. After seven months in Iraq, Key was home on leave and knew he could not return. He took his family and went underground in the United States, finally seeking asylum in Canada after fourteen months in hiding. The Deserter's Tale details life as part of the occupying force - it is not an expose of terrible atrocity, but an account of an experience where human rights abuses were the norm, the distinction between civilian and combatant was all but non-existent, and no one was held responsible. It is the story of a family man and patriot, who went into the war believing unquestioningly in his government's commitment to integrity and justice, and how what he saw in Iraq transformed him into someone who could no longer serve his country.

Charm Offensive: How China's SOft Power is Transforming the World
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0195695119; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
At the beginning of the twenty-first century, China is poised to become a major global power. Though much has been written of its rise, a key aspect of this transformation has gone largely unnoticed: the way China is using soft power and diplomacy to appeal to its neighbours and distant countries alike. This fascinating book examines the significance of China’s recent reliance on soft power—diplomacy, trade incentives, cultural and educational exchange opportunities, and other techniques—to project a benign national image, position itself as a model of social and economic success, and develop stronger international alliances. Drawing on years of on-the-ground experience tracking China’s policies in Southeast Asia, Latin America, and Africa, Kurlantzick shows how China has wooed the world with a ‘charm offensive’ that has largely escaped the attention of the world. Kurlantzick discusses Beijing’s new diplomacy and how it has altered the international political landscape, changing the dynamics of China’s relationships with other countries. He analyses how these initiatives have played out, finding both diplomatic successes and failures. In a provocative conclusion, he considers a future in which China may be the first nation since the Soviet Union to rival the United States in international influence. 020923

Trafficking of Women and Children: Article 7 of the Rome Statute
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 0199468176; Hardcover; New; New; 
In addition to being one of the fastest growing organized crimes in the world, human trafficking is a ruthless and thriving business. This industry, with billions of dollars in net worth, pushes millions of adults and children into commercial sexual servitude, forced labour, and bonded labour.In this book, Joshua Nathan Aston studies the severity of human trafficking, its transnational networks, and the impact of international criminal and humanitarian laws in dealing with the crime. Analysing global statistics in detail, he provides a perspective on the effectiveness of the UN protocols and examines the role of the International Criminal Court, with a focus on Article 7 of the Rome Statute. Aston proposes various measures for effectively countering human trafficking, with the most significant recommendation of setting up a Convention on Prevention of Crimes against Humanity to combat this form of modern-day slavery.

Mutawas: Saudi Arabias Dreaded Religious Police
Zen Publications/D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 8188071536; Softcover; New; 
The mutawas, the dreaded religious police of Saudi Arabia, consider themselves the supreme guardians of public morality. They are keepers of their faith… the way they see it. They have the backing of the Kingdom and they are watching you - everywhere, all the time.And, they are ruthless with anybody who does not conform to their concept of what is right and wrong.They will come for you if you drink. If you grow your hair long. If you are seen with a female who is not a blood relative. If you are a female and don’t wear the abaya or expose your hair or face or legs. If you are a female and drive a car. If you worship your own God in the privacy of your home or carry any symbol at all of your faith. Or if you are a Muslim and miss even one of your ritual prayers.They will target you if you are a Shia, Ahmadiya or a Sufi or even a liberal Sunni or, for that matter, a Muslim from any other Islamic sect different from theirs - for they believe they are the ultimate upholders of pristine Islam.They are the bane of all expatriates in Saudi Arabia but you need to be doubly careful if you are a Hindu, a Sikh or a Christian. In which case, they will use every opportunity to coerce, cajole and bribe you to convert to their faith. Printed Pages: 160. 111643

Slaves of Saudis
Zen Publications/D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 9789382788133; Softcover; New; 
When you applied for work in Saudi Arabia, didn’t you think you would work for a few years, make a pile, marry off your daughter or sister, build a home, retire to the good life? When you paid the huge commission to the recruitment agent and a large fee for your visa, did anybody tell you the bad news?Ihat your contract may be ‘renegotiated’ once you land in Saudi Arabia. You may not be paid your salary for months. You may have to sleep in chains. You may be falsely charged, perfunctorily tried and jailed. You may be threatened with sacking or your salary may be withheld if you spurn your employer’s ‘suggestion’ to convert to Islam.If you are a maid, you might be raped. If you are a male you may be thrashed by your boss for even a minor bungle. The dangers foreign workers face in Saudi Arabia are manifold. Yet the foreign embassies behave like ostriches, leaving the vulnerable employees to Saudi mercy. Meanwhile, thousands continue to queue up with job agents in New Delhi, Mumbai, Karachi, Dhaka, Colombo, Manila and other cities... lured by the petrodollars that they believe will fulfil their dreams of a better life for themselves and their families.

Democracy in the Family: Insights from India
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0761936319; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Democracy in the Family: Insights from India is unique in the way it employs diverse research methods to address the issue of justice in the family under the common theme of examining whether the ethos of democracy is relevant to it. The interface between principles of democracy inside and outside the home is explored through the sub-themes of `Experiencing the Family`, `Expressing the Family`, `Seeking Justice` and `Including the Excluded`. The topics covered range from examinations of the institution of the family, the site of the household, practices of householding and relationships between members, the impact of non-democratic norms and attempts to seek justice in the face of domestic strife and violence, to the advocacy of inclusive strategies that involve men and entire communities in democratising the family.

Facets of Freedom: A Moral and Political Analysis
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1997; 8170226759; Hardcover; New; New; 
Freedom is a simple idea in experience, but complex in analysis. The traditional free-will problem has been a subject of great philosophical debate. The ideas of moral freedom and moral responsibility have been greater puzzles in the history of thought. During the early period of the rise of modern science, a deterministic universe under the region of Universal Law of Causation was postulated leaving no scope for human freedom. However, with the advent of Modern Physics and Quantum causality, it was found that in a world not too rigorously determined by classical causality, there is scope for freedom to actualize new possibilities. This analysis illuminates the ideas of moral freedom, creative freedom and moral responsibility by the fame of quantum causality. Thereafter, the most important aspect of freedom of individual in society, namely, political freedom is considered in detail. It is an idea which is conceptually simple and operationally complex. The problem of power in civil societies and the harmonization of freedom and justice is analyzed. Conceptualization of justice in different forms of social organization has been carried out. The criterion for the comparison of civil societies is the maximization of liberty and justice with the minimal exercise of power. Various political systems have been compared and contrasted using this criterion. It is found that the existence of a democratic mechanism is an essential element of any Political Utopia. However, modern democracies all over the world have not been able to achieve a political optimization of the liberty-justice-power triad. An analysis of the factors relating to this, points to the direction of evolution of civil societies for a third democratic transformation. The analysis of the various facets of moral and political freedom requires an inter-disciplinary approach. Such an approach can greatly illuminate the inter linkages of these traditional problems. The book clarifies many of the issues involved. The thinking mind can explore the ideas with great conceptual clarity within an analytical framework. The book will provide the students of Philosophy, Physics, Psychology and Politics with a deeper insight into some of the basic problems of their respective specializations. At the same time, the general reader will find it enriching by gaining an insight into some fundamental issues of the essence of human existence. Printed Pages: 169. 112074

The Spoils of Partition: Bengal and India, 1947-1967
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2008; 97805211515276; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 155 x 235 Mm 
The partition of India in 1947 was a seminal event of the twentieth century. Much has been written about the Punjab and the creation of West Pakistan; by contrast, little is known about the partition of Bengal. This remarkable book by an acknowledged expert on the subject assesses the social, economic and political consequences of partition. Using new and previously unexplored sources, the book shows how and why the borders were redrawn, how the creation of new nation states led to unprecedented upheavals, massive shifts in population and wholly unexpected transformations of the political landscape in both Bengal and India. The book also reveals how the spoils of partition, which the Congress in Bengal had expected from the new boundaries, were squandered over the twenty years which followed. This is an original and challenging work whose findings change our understanding and its consequences for the history of the subcontinent. Contents Introduction Part I. Hopes and Fears: 1. The devil in the detail: new borders for a new state 2. Swings and roundabouts: West Bengal and the new India Part II. The Bengal Diaspora: 3. Partition and migration: refugees in West Bengal, 1947–67 4. Staying on: West Bengal's Muslim minorities Part III. The Politics of a Partitioned State: 5.

Omji Publishing House Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789384028015; Softcover; New; 
3 MIXED UP MEN is a lighthearted look at how men bond and how men think, their take on love, and how they behave and misbehave.Raghu, Govind and Dinesh are close friends. The three have been thick buddies from their college days. Raghu and Govind have been best friends since school, their friendship going back twenty years.Now in their early thirties, Raghu and Govind together own and operate an internet advertising agency. Dinesh is a rapidly rising star in an international accounting firm and the only one of the trio who is married and a father.When his best friend Govind announces he's getting married, Raghu is genuinely shocked. How can Govind have fallen for the manipulative Anamika - someone whose favorite book is surely 'cheque'? Raghu is convinced Anamika is marrying his closest friend only for his money, and that love had nothing to do with her attraction for him. The trouble is, nobody else, not even Dinesh, agrees. Raghu takes it upon himself to break up the engagement. But he has only six weeks in which to expose Anamika, and runs a great risk of losing Govind's friendship in the process. In the meantime, the happily married Dinesh attends an office conference in Thailand - and even more happily succumbs to the many sexual temptations on offer in Bangkok and elsewhere, after business hours. The backlash threatens his marriage, his family life, his career and his peace of mind. Will his friends Raghu and Govind be able to extricate him from his self-created mess of titanic proportions? Back home in Gurgaon, Raghu's subtle - and not so subtle - attempts to derail Govind's wedding plans will have hilarious and unintended consequences. But amidst the comedy of errors, confusion and carnage which ensues in the run-up to the big day, the 'single-till-I-die' Casanova Raghu himself meets a girl called Nisha, who will change his notions of love - in fact his entire life - in ways he could never have expected. 107035

Cry of the Giraffe: Based on a True Story
Om Books International; New Delhi, India; 9789380069487; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
One girl's harrowing trek from exile and slavery to hope in a new land -- all based on a true story. In the early 1980s, thousands of Ethiopian Jews fled the civil unrest, famine and religious persecution of their native land in the hopes of being reunited in Yerusalem, their spiritual homeland, with its promises of a better life. Wuditu and her family risk their lives to make this journey, which leads them to a refugee camp in Sudan, where they are separated. Terrified, 15-year-old Wuditu makes her way back to Ethiopia alone. "Don't give up, Wuditu! Be strong!" The words of her little sister come to Wuditu in a dream and give her the courage to keep going. Wuditu must find someone to give her food and shelter or she will surely die. Finally Wuditu is offered a solution: working as a servant. However, she quickly realizes that she has become a slave. With nowhere else to go, she stays -- until the villagers discover that she is a falasha, a hated Jew. Only her dream of one day being reunited with her family gives her strength -- until the arrival of a stranger heralds hope and a new life in Israel. With her graceful long neck, Wuditu is affectionately called "the giraffe." And like the giraffe who has no voice, she must suffer in silence. Based on real events, Wuditu's story mirrors the experiences of thousands of Ethiopian Jews.Printed Pages: 232. 105140

Global South Asians: Introducing the Modern Diaspora
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 8175963840; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
By the end of the twentieth century some nine million people of South Asian descent had left India, Bangladesh or Pakistan and settled in different parts of the world, forming a diverse and significant modern diaspora. In the early nineteenth century, many left reluctantly to seek economic opportunities which were lacking at home. This is the story of their often painful experiences in the diaspora, how they constructed new social communities overseas and how they maintained connections with the countries and the families they had left behind. It is a story compellingly told by one of the premier historians of modern South Asia, Judith Brown, whose particular knowledge of the diaspora in Britain and South Africa gives her insight as a commentator. This is a book which will have a broad appeal to general readers as well as to students of South Asian and colonial history, migration studies and sociology. Contents Introduction 1. Traditions of stability and movement 2. Making a modern diaspora 3. Creating new homes and communities 4. Relating to the new homeland 5. Relating to the old homeland Conclusion Bibliography.

One of the major conclusions of the book is that the social conditions that support elite and popular culture are increasingly similar over time. Contents 1. Culture as structure and meaning; 2. The American cultural landscape; 3. Reproduction and decline; 4. Co-ocurrence, tipping in, and bridging; 5. Organizational assembly and disassembly; 6. Increasing returns on diminishing artists; 7.

Timeless Thoughts for Today
Jaico Publishing House; Delhi, India; 817992890X; Softcover; New; 
As a student of Dr. Hill for many years, I know that his philosophy works best when it is observable and measurable. This means that in order to achieve desired results, a simple two step process must be followed : Step 1 : Thought Step 2 : Action = Success It is not always easy to take action, but without action there is no success. Reflect on this for a moment. Great intentions never measure up to the smallest action. However, the tiniest action begins to build a momentum that culminates in your desired success if you build on the previous action daily. Napoleon Hills Timeless Thoughts for Today pairs Dr. Hills philosophy with actions that will move you toward success. I suggest that you try a few, keep a log, and watch your success rate grow. Without the action step, you are missing the master key to your dreams. First chart your course, next plan your method of travel, and third, step into the journey and begin! As you progress, you can then evaluate what actions work best for you.Printed Pages: 184. 105236

Sophie Says: Memoirs of a Breakup Coach
Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789382618843; Softcover; New; 
In 30 years, Sophie Tilgum (her preferred version of Thilagam, the last name she was born with) hasn’t been able to sustain a romantic relationship for more than a year. You might call it commitment phobia but Sophie would tell you there is no such thing. Or perhaps there is such a thing, but it’s so rare, it’s almost an urban legend. Instead she sincerely believes (and propagates) the idea that some people are just wired to be single – an idea her exes did not appreciate when she decided to have The Talk.So after years of being made to feel like the bad guy, Sophie has found a way to embrace her seeming emotional shortcomings via her super popular blog – Sophie Says – in which she finds her calling as The Breakup Coach.Enter Ryan. He is everything Sophie is not and thinks her theories are a load of crap. And if things get complicated with Sophie trying to reconcile her burgeoning feelings for Ryan with her radically different views, they spiral out of control and turn her life into a mini soap when Yatan – her If-Someday Guy – enters the scene. It’s a classic case of Physician-heal-thyself and one wonders if Sophie will emerge out of this drama with her worldview intact. 109589

Suomi ja Euroopan kirkollinen jälleenrakentaminen 1945-1948
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2009; 9516533698; New; 
Suomi joutui valvontakomission painostuksesta kieltäytymään Yhdysvaltain tarjoamasta Marshall-avusta. Samaan aikaan maahan virtasi kirkollisten avustusjärjestöjen välityksellä miljoonien dollarien arvosta tavaraa ja rahaa. Suomen evankelis-luterilainen kirkko onnistui moninkertaistamaan lahjavarat niin kutsutuilla hyväntekeväisyyskaupoilla. Mistä oli kyse tässä järjestelmässä, joka liikkui “harmaalla alueella”, mutta jolla oli viranomaisten hyväksyntä? Printed Pages: 312. 114574

Marina Takalo: Runolaulaja ja näkijä
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2010; 9522220434; New; 
Marina Takalo (1890–1970) oli vienalainen runolaulaja, tietäjä, näkijä ja elämänsä kertoja, jolta on tallennettu folkloren sadan tunnin äänitekokoelma. Takalon muisti on kaiken sen summa, mitä luku- ja kirjoitustaidoton, vanhauskoinen kansannainen liki 80-vuotisen elämänsä aikana eri paikkakunnilla kuuli, näki ja painoi mieleensä. Hänen muistitietonsa käsittää kaikki Vienan perinteisen folkloren lajit, mutta on samalla pakolaisen rankka elämäkerta. Teos on kokonaan uusittu laitos kirjasta Marina Takalon uskonto.

Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2008; 9525533093; New; 
Tutkimuksessa tarkastellaan Magnus Enckellin (1870–1925) teoksien erilaisia merkityksiä. Pohdinnan keskiössä on kysymys sukupuolien ja seksuaalisuuksien erilaisista merkityksistä. Teoksessa kysytään, miten ajatus seksuaalisen tai sukupuolisen identiteetin yhtenäisyydestä ja yksiselitteisyydestä on ymmärrettävä. Enckellin teoksia on mahdollista ajatella identiteeteillä leikkimisen paikkoina. Paikoilla tarkoitetaan taiteilijan teosten avoimuutta, joka tarjoaa katsojalle mahdollisuuden pohtia erilaisten seksuaalisten ja sukupuolisten identiteettien merkityksiä. Printed Pages: 149. 114298

Sotavuodet olivat Suomen metsäteollisuudelle vaikeaa aikaa, jota värittivät ulkomaankaupan romahdus ja alituinen pula raaka-aineista ja työvoimasta. Sotatalouden vaatimukset pakottivat yhtiöitä uudistamaan tuotantoaan ja tiivistämään yhteistoimintaansa. Rauhan tultua muodostui metsäteollisuuden nopeasti kasvaneista vientituloista vahva veturi, jolla koko kansantalous vedettiin kuivalle maalle. Sotakorvaukset saatiin maksettua ja jälleenrakentaminen alkuun. Printed Pages: 285. 114918
