15601 Joseph Ángelo Dávila
Historia de Xerez de la Frontera: Estudio preliminar, edición anotada e índices de Juan Abellán Pérez
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2008; 9514110226; New; 
Su autor acepta la estructura de las obras anteriores, especialmente las escritas en el siglo XV, ya que su propósito era el de narrar los hechos de armas en los que habían participado los jerezanos, centrados en las relaciones con el Islam peninsular, lo que permite calificar su texto como una auténtica Historia Medieval o de la Reconquista como se le nombra en una de las copias que se conservan de su manuscrito, alejada de todo tipo de relatos que no estuvieran sólidamente apoyados en los fuentes documentales del Archivo Municipal de su ciudad.

Stability with Growth: Macroeconomics, Liberalization, and Development
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0195688031; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
There is growing dissatisfaction with the economic policies advocated by the IMF and other international financial institutions—policies that have often resulted in stagnating growth, crises, and recessions for client countries. This book presents an alternative to ‘Washington Consensus’ neo-liberal economic polices by showing that both macroeconomic and liberalization policy must be sensitive to the particular circumstances of developing countries. It presents an alternative framework and discusses how different approaches to economic policy can better serve developing countries both in ordinary times and in times of crises. Written by leading names in the field, this book introduces the issues and the objectives of macroeconomic policy from diverse perspectives. It also presents an analysis of macroeconomic models and policy perspectives on stabilization and capital markets liberalization from conservative, Keynesian, and heterodox perspectives. 019691

Child Prostitution in India
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1999; 8170227712; Hardcover; New; New; 
As a new millennium approaches there is an increasing need to look at the future which our children will inherit. Intense political, social and scientific efforts are needed to improve the position of children in India and South Asia. Despite uniqueness of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) it is only effective when implemented. This book "Child Prostitution in India" is an attempt to bring into focus some important emerging trend in sexual commercial exploitation of children in the name of culture and tradition. The reader opens by examining the contemporary studies and moves on to discuss the myths prevailing. Written with passion and commitment, this information packed volume gives some shocking facts and figure about child prostitution. Finally, the book explores the policy implications. This timely, path breaking report examines the challenges in realizing the human rights of girl child. It cautions us against the over reliance on free market economics that condemns sections of the community to poverty, ill health and unemployment and forces them to "sell fruits of the womb". This book, as a part of tackling "intolerable forms of child labour", will be useful to non-governmental organisations (NGOs), state government welfare departments, university researchers, bureaucrats, specialised professional such as doctors and lawyers, UN specialised organisations like WHO, UNICEF & UNESCO and those international NGOs who have prioritized their actions in this field.

Natural Kinds and Conceptual Change
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2004; 0521825997; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 228 x 152 Mm 
According to the received tradition, the language used to refer to natural kinds in scientific discourse remains stable even as theories about these kinds are refined. Hence, scientists discover, rather than stipulate, that sentences like ‘Whales are mammals, not fish’ are true. In this illuminating book, Joseph LaPorte argues that scientists do not discover that sentences about natural kinds, like ‘Whales are mammals, not fish’, are true rather than false. Instead, scientists find that these sentences were vague in the language of earlier speakers, and they refine the meanings of the relevant natural-kind terms to make the sentences true. Hence, scientists change the meanings of these terms. This conclusion prompts LaPorte to examine the consequences of this change in meaning for the issue of incommensurability and for the progress of science. • Combines a skilled treatment of philosophy of language with an unusual knowledge of the relevant biological science • Unifies many ideas discussed separately in the vast literature on natural kinds Contents Introduction; 1. What is a natural kind, and do biological taxa qualify?; 2. Natural kinds, rigidity, and essence; 3. Biological kind term reference and the discovery of essence; 4. Chemical kind term reference and the discovery of essence; 5. Linguistic change and incommensurability; 6. Meaning change, theory change and analyticity.

Living Greatness
Orient Publishing/Orient Paperbacks; New Delhi, India; 8122205119; Softcover; New; 
Throughout recorded human history, many insightful teachers, thinkers, and philosophers have talked about finding purpose in life and living a life filled with happiness. While many of these ideals, insights of spiritual wisdom, and higher principles are wonderful, most of them were written thousands of years ago. How can we practically integrate these ancient teachings into the complexities of our modern, everyday lives?Author and entrepreneur Joseph Law has brought together an eclectic group of teachers in this book. From billionaire business coach Bill Bartmann and international leading thinker Edward de Bono, to meditation master Mingyur Rinpoche and quantum physicist Fred Alan Wolf, and many others including the no-need-to-be-introduced Jack Canfield and John Demartini.This ground-breaking book, Living Greatness, teaches the principles of happiness from a holistic perspective, one that includes fulfilling relationships, rewarding career, spiritual growth, and finding one’s purpose in life. Written in a question-and-answer dialogue through a series of rare and insightful interviews, Living Greatness gives you private access to the ideas, thoughts, and advice of some of the greatest and the most respected living minds.As you read this book you will discover that Living Greatness is possible for all of us and cannot be measured solely by society's usual standards of success or wealth. Rather, it is demonstrated by how one's life is lived.This is what Jack Canfield, co-author of New York Times Bestselling Chicken Soup for the Soul, writes in the foreword of the book:Living Greatness blends the best of success and spiritual principles into a simple, easy-to-read format and compresses years of collective wisdom, knowledge, and experience into potent lessons that have powerful and immediate applications. It also offers brilliant answers to some of the most gripping questions that have ever been asked about life, happiness and success.Living Greatness contains timeless wisdom in a contemporary package for living a happier, more successful, and more fulfilling life. To live great, you will also need to build the new habits, behaviours, and belief structures that will allow you to create the life you want — and Living Greatness will show you how to do just that.Get ready for the read (and the ride) of your life!Printed Pages: 232. 106693

The Wrestler's Body: Identity and Ideology in North India
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1997; 8121507995; First Indian Edition; Cloth; New; New; 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
The Wrestler's Body tells us the story of a way of life organized in terms of physical self-development. While Indian wrestlers are competitive athletes, they are also moral reformers whose conception of self and society is fundamentally somatic. In order to elucidate the somatic structure of the wrestler's identity and ideology, Joseph Alter uses the insights of anthropology to write an ethnography of the wrestler's physique. Young men in North India may choose to join an akhara, or gymnasium, where they subject themselves to a complex program of physical fitness. Under the supervision of a guru they become wrestlers by learning how and what to eat, how, when and where to sleep, bathe, defecate, exercise, brush their teeth, and rest, what to wear, and generally how to comport themselves. By these means they not only become competent athletes, they come to develop a moral physique and to embody an ideology of public health. Alter's first-hand description of each detail of the wrestler's regimen is set within the geomoral context of the gymnasium and is framed by a series of interpretations: the place of the body in the relationship between a guru and his disciple; the meaning of patronage as a system of control and support; the embodiment of symbolic structures in the ritual of Nagapanchami; a deconstruction of the embodied self through the drama of tournament competition; and the development of a moral physique modeled on the ironic form and divine structure of Lord Hanuman's body. Wrestling provides a unique perspective on South Asian culture and society. Self-consciously outside the cultural mainstream, it cuts against the weave of the larger cultural fabric. By bringing members of high and low castes into close physical contact, wrestling challenges the principles of purity and pollution. Concepts of general health and fitness are redefined in exaggerated terms. Using the model of sannyasa, or Hindu world renunciation, wrestlers transform the disciplinary mechanisms of asceticism into the terms of somatic nationalism and utopian reform. The body of the wrestler is a focal symbol in the rubric of "ethical nationalism." Wrestlers feel that a reform of Indian national character is imperative and that moral reform on this scale can only be achieved through a discipline of the individual body. As such, wrestlers advocate their way of life as an ideology of national health. Everyone is called on to become a wrestler and build collective strength through self-discipline.

Yoga in Modern India: The body Between Science and Philosophy
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8178223244; Softcover; New; 
Yoga has come to be an Icon of Indian culture and civilization, and it is widely regarded as being timeless and unchanging. Based on extensive ethnographic research and an analysis of both ancient and modern texts, Yoga in modern India challenges this popular view by examining the history of yoga, focusing on its emergence in modern India and its dramatically changing form and significance in the twentieth century. Joseph Alter argues that yoga’s transformation into a popular activity idolized for its health value is based on modern ideas about science and medicine.Printed Pages: 312. 102306

Soft Power: The Means to Success in World Politics
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2012; 9789380502908; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This is an indispensable book for anyone wondering what sort of changes to expect in U.S. foreign policy should the Democrats retake the White House later this year. Nye’s careful analysis of the shortcomings of unilateralism and reliance solely on military power in confronting the threat posed by Islamic extremists is strong, all the more so because it is virtually devoid of partisanship. He gives credit to President Bush and his neoconservative advisers in their projection of “hard” military and economic power. But he shows how what he casts as their blindness to the significance of “soft” power seriously undermines hard power. Soft power—”the ability to get what you want through attraction rather than coercion”—is cultivated through relations with allies, economic assistance and cultural exchanges with other countries, projecting a sense that U.S. behavior corresponds with rhetorical support for democracy and human rights and, more generally, maintaining favorable public opinion and credibility abroad. The go-it-alone approach, Nye argues, has led to an unprecedented drop in support for the U.S. abroad, which leaves us scrambling to rebuild Iraq almost singlehandedly, overstretching ourselves militarily and economically. It also hampers efforts to secure the voluntary cooperation of foreign governments essential to dismantling terrorist cells spread throughout the globe. The answer, Nye says, lies in a return to the mix of soft and hard power that cemented the Western alliance and won the Cold War.Printed Pages: 202. 104353

Nimbarka: A Pre-Samkara Vedantin and His Philosophy
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1997; 8121507944; First Edition; Cloth; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
This work investigates a figure, Nimbarka, who is famous and yet shadowy as to his identity, his time, his authentic teachings and work. The method followed in this investigation is adequate: First, securing as basis a work whose genuineness is not controvertible, the Vedantaparijata Saurabha; second, in its light, investigates the genuineness of other works allegedly composed by Nimbarka; third examines critically all relevant traditions concerning Nimbarka and determines their value as mere legend or reliably historical documents; fourth, ascertains the kind of literary or doctrinal affinity that exists between Nimbarka and Samkara and Srinivasa; fifth, discerns the contrasts and affinities between the teachings of the Saurabha and other forms of Vaisnavism; sixth, draws the conclusion of such on historical enquiry with careful discrimination and moderation in claims of certainty and probability. The author has also provided a close analysis of the Saurabha as the solid basis of his exposition of its philosophy. It has the quality of security, being solidly grounded in a text with which the author is thoroughly familiar and which he has scrutinized in and out. Due to his talent as a Sanskritist, he has drawn all the implications of Nimbarka's expression, vocabulary and phrasing. All Vedanta scholars will be grateful to have this work in hand.

Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0141014318; First Edition; Paperback; New; New; 13 Cms x 20 Cms 
'A searing critique of Dubyanomics ... The Nobel laureate who took on the IMF is now turning his guns on the American President. Stiglitz knows when to pick a fight' - Observer His previous book revealed the shocking truth about globalization. Now, Joseph Stiglitz blows the whistle on the devastation wrought by the free market mantra in the nineties – and shows how Bush is ignoring the lessons from what happened. This is the explosive story of how capitalism US-style got its comeuppance: how excessive deregulation, government pandering to big business and exorbitant CEO salaries all fed the bubble that burst so dramatically amid corporate scandal and anti-globalization protest. As Chief Economic Advisor to the President at the time, Stiglitz exposes the inside story of what went wrong, but also reveals how Bush’s administration is now making things worse – much worse – for the economy, the US and the rest of the world. Stiglitz takes us one step further, showing how a more balanced approach to the market and government can lead not only to a better economy, but a better society. Printed Pages: 432. 002932

The Vaipheis: Their History and Culture
Akansha Publishing House; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8183702090; Hardcover; New; New; 
No tomes, travelogues, official or non-official files, and any single foreign accounts has yet briefed or detailed about the Vaiphei people satisfactorily. The obvious reason for this are, first written Material is dearth, and second, legends, culture, and History being preserved orally. This work is intended to bring out to light and bring home the rich and valuable historical aspects of the Vaipheis which are now neglected and allowed to slip into oblivion by sophisticated and self-sufficient younger generation. Perhaps, this work will be the first of its kind. This work has been methodically organized under thirteen chapters. The First to the fourth Chapters are an attempt to clarify the racial origin of Vaiphei and its contiguous tribes. The fifth chapter deals with how the appellation "VAIPHEI" have been acquired. The sixth chapter gives A Clear Picture about the Vaiphei racial origin. Chapter seven of this Study mainly deals with the journey and settlements of Suantak descendants from the time they are identified as "Vaiphei". The eighth chapter deals with the socio-political system of Vaipheis which have been practiced since time immemorial. Chapter nine deals with different aspects of Vaipheis economic and Domestic life in its traditional forms. In the tenth chapter we find that their customary Laws were unwritten yet they were as much rigid as coded laws of modern time. Chapter eleventh of this study gives an exhaustive assessment of Vaipheis` primal religion. When and how the Vaipheis were undone and released from their superstitious, mumbo-jumbo, and pow-wow life is detailed in chapter twelve. The concluding as well as the thirteenth chapter deals with the observation and remarks on major findings of this study. 110160

Nagarjuna in Context: Mahayana Buddhism and Early Indian Culture
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8120832604; Hardcover; New; New; 
Nagarjuna, one of India's greatest philosophers, is the most influential thinker in the Mahayana Buddhist tradition. While his philosophy has been the subject of numerous studies and translations, Joseph Walser provides the first examination of Nagarjuna's life and writings within the social, religious, and institutional contexts of the early history of Buddhism. Walser locates Nagarjuna's second century writings at a critical juncture in the development and spread of Mahayana Buddhism. At this time, Mahayanist writings and teachings were regarded with great suspicion, and its followers were subject to legal censure. Walser explores how Nagarjuna's writings, including his most famous works, The Jeweled Garland and Foundational Stanzas, established a connection between the authority of the existing Buddhist canon and Mahayana teachings. In doing so, Nagarjuna was able to demonstrate the legality of Mahayana interpretation within the strictures of Buddhist monastic law. This established a place for Mahayana in the Buddhist tradition and insured the reproduction and transmission of the sect's central texts. Walser's analysis draws on close readings of Nagarjuna's texts, particularly their treatment of the "three baskets" of the Buddhist canon: Vinaya (Buddhist monastic law), Sutra (the sermons of the Buddha), and Abhidharma (Buddhist sectarian treatises). Walser also examines how the philosopher forged alliances with the laity and other Buddhist sects alliances that proved pivotal in insuring the survival of Mahayana teachings. In addition to his analysis of Nagarjuna's writings, Walser explores a range of Buddhist and non-Buddhist sources, as well as art historical and epigraphic evidence to offer a creative and original contribution to the understanding of Nagarjuna and the early history of Buddhism.Printed Pages: 369. 102394

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

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.

Todennäköisin Vaihtoehto
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2014; 9529791925; New; 
Richard Swinburne on aikamme näkyvimpiä uskon ja järjen suhteen pohtijoita. Swinburnen ajattelussa kysymys uskon ja järjen suhteesta muotoutuu seuraavasti: kuinka todennäköisen maailmankatsomuksellisen vaihtoehdon kristinusko tarjoaa yleisesti hyväksyttävien päättelyperiaatteiden ja todistusaineiston perusteella? Teoksessa analysoidaan ja arvioidaan kriittisesti Swinburnen argumentaatiota kristinuskon todennäköisyyden puolesta sekä Swinburnen käsitystä uskomisen luonteesta ja järkevyyden ehdoista. Tutkimuksessa käsitellään Swinburnen ajattelua sekä kokonaisvaltaisesti että yksityiskohtaisesti ja johdatetaan lukija aikamme uskonnonfilosofian ydinteemoihin. Se haastaa pohtimaan paitsi Swinburnen ajattelun vahvuuksia ja heikkouksia myös kristillisen uskomisen luonnetta ja suhdetta tieteelliseen uskomiseen. Printed Pages: 347. 117179

Tutkimus käsittelee laajasti urheilun ja erityisesti olympiakisojen avulla tuotettujen suomalaisuuteen liitettyjen myyttien syntyä ja kehitystä. Printed Pages: 357. 115670

Kansakunnat Kultajahdissa: Urheilu ja Nationalismi
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2003; 951898266X; New; 
Urheilua ovat käyttäneet nationalistisiin päämääriinsä demokraatit ja diktaattorit, konservatiivit ja liberaalit, kansallissosialistit ja kommunistit. Nationalismin perusajatus kiteytyy näkemykseen, että oma kansa on luonteeltaan erityinen ja ansaitsee siksi olla olemassa. Erityisyytensä voi osoittaa esimerkiksi urheiluvoitoilla. Olympiamitalit ovat osoitus kansakunnan elinvoimasta, väkevyydestä ja ylivertaisuudesta. Urheilun on uskottu olevan erityisesti pienien kansojen paras ase kansojen välisessä taistelussa. Nationalismi urheilussa muuttanut muotoaan. Takavuosien pyhä hartaus on vaihtunut karnevalistiseksi ilonpidoksi, jossa maan tunnukset ovat yhä esillä. Printed Pages: 56. 116875

Verta, hikeä ja rasvaprosentteja-suomalainen Liikuntatutkimus
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2002; 9518982635; New; 
Jouko Kokkonen esittelee Liikuntatieteellisen Seuran Impulssissa Verta, hikeä ja rasvaprosentteja liikuntatieteen tutkimusalojen kehittymistä ja tuloksia sekä tutkimuksen tekijöitä ja ohjausta. Hän ei kuitenkaan esittele liikuntatieteen Top Ten -listaa tai muutenkaan pane liikuntatutkimuksen eri alueita tai yksittäisiä tutkimuksia vastakkain. Sen sijaan tutkimus kuvaa esimerkein liikuntatieteiden laajuutta ja kirjoa. Näkökulma on enemmän tiedon vastaanottajan kuin tieteen tekijän. Näin tulos poikkeaa selvästi mm. Liikunnan yhteiskunnallinen perustelu -raporteista. Printed Pages: 56. 116883

Edistys ja yhteinen hyvä vapaudenajan ruotsalaisessa poliittisessa kielessä
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2009; 9522220787; New; 
Teoksessa analysoidaan ruotsalaisia lakitekstejä, valtiollisia juhlapuheita, historiankirjoitusta, taloudellista ajattelua ja valtiopäiväkeskusteluja. Kirjan esimerkit kattavat keskusteluja niin säätyjen erioikeuksista, kuningashuoneen asemasta, puolueriidoista, painovapaudesta kuin Suomen asemastakin. Tutkimus tarkastelee ennen kaikkea tutkitun aikakauden omia käsityksiä siitä, miksi valtakunta ja sen hallinto olivat olemassa, keiden etuja ne ajoivat ja keiden edistykseen ne tähtäsivät.

Suomen mäkihypyn Historia
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2012; 9522223131; New; 
Mäkihyppy tuli Suomeen Norjasta 1880-luvulla. Ensimmäisissä kisoissa hyppyri oli jopa kahden metrin korkuinen, ja urheat hyppääjät hyppäsivät siitä tasamaalle. Teos kartoittaa hurjapäisen lajin värikkään historian. 1950-luvulla suomalaiset kehittivät aerodynaamisen, voimakkaaseen etunojaan perustuvan hyppytyylin, jonka ansiosta hyppääjämme nousivat maailman huipulle. Suomen mäkihypyn historia dokumentoi lajin ikimuistettavat huippuhetket, niin kotimaiset kuin kansainvälisetkin merkittävät kisat 1980-luvun loppuun, V-tyyliin saakka. Printed Pages: 440. 116855
