1510 Ameeta Mulla Wattal (Ed.)
The Learning Landscape: Perspectives of School Principles on Education
Wisdom Tree; New Delhi, India; 8183284493; Hardcover; New; New; 
The secrets of natural phenomena and the enigmatic behaviour of the human mind are perhaps the two most intriguing aspects of our evolutionary process. In trying to unravel the mysteries of mind and matter, many seekers of truth, in their own chosen way, have discovered or created new pathways. Mathematics emerged as the language of nature, giving a scientific expression to its laws and then providing answers in a most logical and rational manner. Gautama Buddha discovered and propounded Vipassana, a meditation technique that not only explains the behavioural pattern of mind in entirety, but also shows a path to purge it of its negativities in order to lead a wholesome and peaceful life. This captivating book explores the singularity between Vipassana and Mathematics. It explores their parallel yet intertwining journeys—from action to reaction; from observation to experimentation and from finiteness to infinity—in the quest to distil all knowledge to reach the Truth, and nothing but the Truth.Printed Pages: 256. 106740

1512 Amelia Bonea
The News of Empire
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 0199467129; Hardcover; New; New; 
On 14 July 2013, India closed down its telegraph service, drawing the curtain over an important chapter in its history of telecommunications. Introduced during the colonial period, the telegraph network was opened for public use on 1 February 1855; both the beginning and the end of the service were marked by striking scenes of people ‘rushing’ to the telegraph office in order to send messages. Like the internet today, the new technology came to play an important role in the conduct of journalism in nineteenth-century India. The News of Empire reconstructs the interconnected history of telegraphy and journalism by drawing on a wide range of historical material and through an in-depth analysis of the newspaper press. Questioning grand narratives of ‘media revolutions’, Amelia Bonea argues that the use of telegraphy in journalism was gradual and piecemeal. News itself emerged as the site of many contestations, as imperial politics, capitalist enterprise, and individual agency shaped not only access to technologies of communication, but also the content and form of reporting.

1520 Amina Okada with an Introduction By Andre Bareau
Ajanta
Brijbasi Art Press; Noida, U.P. India; 1996; 8171070345; First English Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 27 Cms x 31 Cms Jean-Louis Nou 
About hundred kilometres to the north of Aurangabad, in the state of Maharashtra, in the heart of the Indhyadri ranges, are the imposing Ajanta caves. Carved in the rock of a steep cliff, overlooking one of the meanders of the Waghora, thirty rock shrines are spread out over six hundred metres, in an arch overhanging the river. It is in this ideal retreat a conducive haven for meditation and con&127&127&127&127templation, that from the 2nd century before Christ till the beginning of the &127&1277th century, Buddhist monks decided to retire and build this spectacular &127&127monastery in rock. The Ajanta caves, with their compelling architecture, their outstanding high-reliefs and sculptures, the remarkable richness and variety of the canopies and profusion of the shafts of their carved columns, are universally admired for the beauty of their paintings. These paintings, which decorate the walls, the columns, the door frames, the ceilings, illustrate, in a very detailed and precise fashion, about thirty avadana, or jataka extracted from the vast body of tales, poems and belleds, sanctified and edifying tales attributed to the Buddha who, it is said, narrated them to his disciples. These tales relate the history of the various incarnations of the blessed one. While being religious in nature, the Ajanta paintings--the latest and the most famous ones--express the extreme refinement of the period which gave rise to them, a period of unprecedented artistic and cultural culmination in northern India, then governed by a dynasty which was at the height of glory, political and economic power and territorial expension : the Gupta dynasty.

States of the Indian Economy: Towards a Larger Constituency for Second Generation Economic Reforms
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0761935916; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
India today occupies the centre stage in the global arena, and economists the world-over are bullish on india`s unprecedented economic growth in the last ten years and it growth prospects for the future. The large pool of human capital—a young, talented and well-educated workforce—is one of the major drivers of economic growth in the country. Rapid strides in knowledge-based industries, especially information technology, rejuvenation of the manufacturing sector, revolution in the agricultural sector and resurgence in exports have made India one of the fastest growing economies in the world. The opening up of the economy and growth in entrepreneurship has made India a sought-after destination for foreign investment. The authors argue that this situation is a result of first generation economic reforms, initiated primarily by the central government. For inclusive growth, the onus is on state governments to carry forward a second generation of reforms. In this context, the book examines: - The state of the Indian economy after one and a half decades of liberalisation and its role in the fast changing global economy; - the economic performance of various Indian states during this period; and - sectors that have done well and those that need substantial improvement in terms of adoption and implementation of reform measures.

Further the relationship between Daksha, the king of Meluha and the mysterious temple priests will also be exposed in this last part of the trilogy. Shiva seeks helps from the Vayuputras in the quest to conquer all evil.The great warrior will encounter the real intentions of some characters he deemed to be close to him.

Employment and Development: Essays from an Unorthodox Perspective
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2006; 0195680820; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
Amit Bhaduri's distinction as an economic theorist lies in challenging mainstream theory in a precise yet compelling way. The essays in this collection, written by the author over the last quarter century, mark a fresh approach to one of the most important economic problem of our time. Why poverty and unemployment, as two sides of the same problem, appear and persist, and are often bypassed by the process of development? The author looks at this problem from a multidimensional perspective. In the first section he discusses some of the theoretical issues involved, and point to oversights in standard theorizing on the subject. The second section draws out the connection between development of a predominantly agrarian economy and unemployment. The final section deals with the problem in the context of transitional economies of east Europe and draws lessons. In particular the essays highlight the errors from the use of orthodox theories relied on by the IMF and the World Bank. By rejecting the uncritical and mechanical acceptance of globalization as the remedy to all evils, the author invites the reader to think independently, and thereby stimulates argument and debate. 019703

1545 Amit Bhaduri
Malignant Growth
Aakar Books; New Delhi, India; 9789350023952; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book argues that the ideology of high growth which has been adopted as the dogma by successive governmentsat the centre and states are excluding the poor, disenfranchising them from the growth process and destroying their livelihood without creating alternative jobs. This process has distorted parliamentary democracy and reduced it to a level of no choice. The polity's inbuilt insensivity to poverty and rising inequality has in recent years turned into arrogant defiance of the poor and is now turning into an assault on them, dispossessing them of their land and livelihood, community and culture. Of late, this process is increasingly assuming the form of narrow jingoistic majoritarianism. But it is not all that new as a streak of this narrowness could be seen present in the mainstream nationalism that took shape around the anti-colonial struggle and continued through the course of post-independence development process. The book also outlines a proposition to rethink development, democracy and also nationalism. Printed Pages: 151. 111709

Odysseus Abroad
Penguin Books India Pvt. Ltd.; Delhi, India; 2014; 0670086193; Hardcover; New; New; 
He saw his uncle once or twice a week. They got on each other’s nerves, but had grown fond of the frisson. He was Ananda’s sole friend in London—and Ananda his. ‘Friend’ was right; because his uncle was capable of being neither uncle, nor father, nor brother. Ananda’s uncle, Rangamama, is an eccentric bachelor who has taken early retirement and lives off his pension in a squalid bedsit in Belsize Park. His habits are angular—he rarely bathes, and devours paranormal stories—and his personality combative. Ananda, by contrast, is fragile, nervous and romantic. Uncle and nephew circle around their past, walk the streets of London and find in each other, an unspoken solace. A retelling of the story of Odysseus and Telemachus, Odysseus Abroad is a novel about a young man and an old man, about friendship, loneliness and love. Written in a voice at once tender and ribald, wry and unsentimental, this is Amit Chaudhuri’s most extraordinary novel yet.Printed Pages: 256. 103381

The Strategic Shape of the World: Proceedings of MEA-IISS Foreign Policy Dialogue
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8178299364; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
This book is a compilation of the proceedings of the MEA-IISS Foreign Policy Dialogue held at New Delhi in December 2007. The International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) is the world’s leading think tank on international security, political risk and military conflict. It provides trusted and independent analysis for professionals and institutions wanting cutting-edge information on global developments and their effect on political and economic affairs. Similarly, the Public Diplomacy division of the Ministry of External Affairs was especially created in April 2006 as it was increasingly felt that in today’s world, successful foreign policy practitioners would need to have an open and regular dialogue with civil society, NGOs, academia, think tanks and media. This dialogue between the IISS and the Public Diplomacy division of the MEA focuses on three subjects: the strategic shape of the world (in terms of foreign policies of different nations), international terrorism and energy security. It emphasizes that in the context of globalization and economic interdependence, the real source of danger lies not in the fact of supremacy of the Westphalian state order, but in issues like terrorism, energy security and environmental and climate change which threaten stability. These are recognized as global threats and the dialogue focuses on ways to deal with them. Printed Pages: 120. 032851

Indian Management: Thought and Practice
Gen Next Publication/Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2010; 9789380222325; Hardcover; New; New; 
Indian business and industry in the 21st century has witnessed mind boggling changes on account of the opening up of the economy in late 20th century. The onrush of competition from across the Indian shores and the unleashing of the enterprising spirit within the nation changed the business and economic scenario to such a great extent that managing business with the paradigms of the previous century became extremely unfeasible and incompatible. In such a scenario not only the private sector but also the public sector repositioned itself to survive and flourish in a seamless global market.The chapters included in this book mirror this concern with the new reality. They spotlight attention on the attempt of Indian business organisations to reinvent themselves to fulfill their strategic intent and contribute to the overall welfare and well being of each of their stake holders. They also focus attention on the nature of changes that management has undergone in the Indian context, in the specific areas of Human resource, Finance and Marketing. The studies included here show that while the private sector organizations are capitalizing on the liberalized business environment, the public sector companies and corporations too are emerging out of their bureaucratic comfort zones to give the private sector run for money. Some of the studies also look at the changes in the regulatory and policy environment and are more or less eulogistic about them. It is our conviction that this book will act as a window on a new and resilient India Incorporated as compared to the times when business and industry clamored for protection against the opening up of the economy., About the author:- Amit Gupta, Chairman, JIMS, is an alumnus of Shri Ram College of Commerce and IIFT.

Guide to Godhood: The Roadmap to Moksha (based on Shramansutram)
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8121512638; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Moksha—the State of Godhood, is one of the most mystical concepts of the east. It means rise of an ordinary individual from the realms of manhood into the domain of Godhood. It symbolizes the release of soul from the ever repeating cycle of birth and death and assimilation of the same into the souls of previously liberated beings, collectively referred to as “Siddha.” This book, “Guide to Godhood—The Roadmap to Moksha, “breaks open the path to achieve this high state. It’s based on Sutras(verses) of Shraman Theology and divides the journey into Fourteen milestones referred to as “Guna.” Each one of us, irrespective of our beliefs and value system, is stationed at one of these phases (Guna). As a reader reads through the pages of this book, it will not be difficult for him to pin-point the phase at which he is currently stationed. This knowledge of one’s current state of being will not only help him analyze where he stands on the spiritual platform, but will also help him in discovering the reason of his stationing at that particular phase and thus plan remedial actions to break free. The basic idea of this book is to help explain all these phases from a scientific outlook, so a fair idea of the road that lies to Godhood could be achieved. Printed Pages: 217. 037782

Crises and Creativities: Middle Class-Bhadralok in Bengal, C. 1939-52
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8125037039; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
The 1940s was the decade of crisis and change in Bengal. The years that began with famine, war and devastation ended with rioting, death and mass migration as a land, its people and its soul were partitioned. In the darkness of terrible human tragedy, however, twinkled significant triumphs of human achievement. Bengali intellectualism flourished on either side of Independence, and new landmarks were erected in thought, art and aesthetics. The bhadralok, a multilayered social category comprising educated professionals, translatable literally as ‘gentlemen’ and as ‘middle class’ in socioeconomic terms confronted change with a mix of radicalism and reaction. The loftiness of the resultant intellectual product was in inverse proportion to the drastic fall in the general conditions of life. Littérateurs and artists broke out of the elitism of their predecessors to experiment with new forms, and thinkers and theoreticians adapted the philosophical debates of 20th century Europe to contemporary Indian circumstances. This book is an account of the Bengali bhadralok’s distinctive creative response to historical circumstances that remain without parallel in the rest of India in the years both before and after their passage. It evaluates aesthetic resurgence in socio-economic perspective, following its many twists and turns, and mapping its essentially non-conformist, liberating and egalitarian spirit. It will be of great interest to students of social crisis and cultural change, and everyone seeking to appraise artistic responses to historical realities. Printed Pages: 352. 031444

Water is essential both for the creation and sustenance of life. But we have always taken the oceans, the basic source of water and their resources as the permanent and inexhaustible. Humankind has awakened very late to the fact that the marine resources are not inexhaustible and need to be conserved and developed for future generations. With this realization the possibility to conflicts among sovereign nation over use and control of the oceans and their resources has increased manifold.

Perspectives on Consciousness
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8121510813; First Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
Consciousness has remained an enigma even after close scientific scrutiny. Last two decades of the twentieth century, therefore, witnessed an explosion of interest in consciousness. Lack of consensus about the nature, definition and taxonomy of consciousness and lack of conviction about the adequacy of the reductive methodology have led scholars from different disciplines to study this multidimensional phenomenon from perspectives of their own. This volume is a collection of essays focusing on ontological, epistemological, semantic and methodological debates from philosophical and scientific perspectives. The issues dealt with here include the following: What is consciousness – a substance, a state or a process? Is consciousness subjective and private? Does ‘consciousness’ mean something unitary and indivisible or is it a cluster concept? What is the hard problem of consciousness and how to solve it? Who will have the last word on consciousness – philosopher, physicist, psychologist or neurobiologist? Is it possible to have a unified theory of consciousness and how to go about it? The unique feature of this volume is the inclusion of articles on classical Indian theories of consciousness analysed from the contemporary point of view by very competent scholars. This collection is meant for both scholars and general readers. Rich information content of the volume will be particularly useful to students and researchers in Philosophy and Consciousness Studies.

India and Pakistan: Pathways Ahead
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2007; 8187966661; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
India-Pakistan relations are at a historic juncture. This new found warmth, more than mere ‘cold peace’ something that has traditionally characterised the relationship between the two countries has started manifesting in an urge to engage the other country with a positive frame of mind, explore the finer aspects of the other, and impelled an unprecedented popular momentum generated by the expectations of ordinary Indians and Pakistanis. The leadership in both India and Pakistan has not just accepted that they are willing to go beyond their stated positions, but have realised that the welfare of the other is essential to their own. The people of Jammu and Kashmir are also undergoing an attitudinal metamorphosis towards realism and the imperatives of peace, stability and prosperity.Still, much remains unchanged. Mindsets, suspicion, terror tactics and political compulsions created by age-old ‘nationalist’ rhetoric remain potential wild cards in the ongoing process towards positive peace. Thus, much of the challenging journey still lies ahead.Printed Pages: 330. 104452

1596 Amitav Acharya
The End of American World Order
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 0199458928; Hardcover; New; New; 
The age of western hegemony is over. Whether or not America itself is declining, the post-war liberal world order underpinned by US military, economic and ideological primacy and supported by global institutions serving its power and purpose, is coming to an end. But what will take its place? A Chinese world order? A reconstituted form of American hegemony? A regionalized system of global cooperation, including major and emerging powers?In this timely and provocative book, Amitav Acharya offers an incisive answer to this fundamental question. While the US will remain a major force in world affairs, he argues that it has lost the ability to shape world order after its own interests and image. As a result, the US will be one of a number of anchors including emerging powers, regional forces and a concert of the old and new powers shaping a new world order. Rejecting labels such as 'multipolar', 'apolar' or 'G - zero', Acharya likens the emerging system to a multiplex theater, offering a choice of plots (Ideas), directors (Power) and action (Leadership) under one roof. Finally, he reflects on the policies that the US, emerging powers and regional actors must pursue to promote stability in this decentered but interdependent, multiplex world.

1598 Amitav Ghosh
River of Smoke
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 0143424718; Paperback; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
In September 1838 a storm blows up on the Indian Ocean and the Ibis, a ship carrying a consignment of convicts and indentured labourers from Calcutta to Mauritius, is caught up in the whirlwind. When the seas settle, five men have disappeared—two lascars, two convicts and one of the passengers. Did the same storm upend the fortunes of those aboard the Anahita, an opium carrier heading towards Canton? And what fate befell those aboard the Redruth, a sturdy two-masted brig heading East out of Cornwall? Was it the storm that altered their course or were the destinies of these passengers at the mercy of even more powerful forces? On the grand scale of an historical epic, River of Smoke follows its storm-tossed characters to the crowded harbours of China. There, despite efforts of the emperor to stop them, ships from Europe and India exchange their cargoes of opium for boxes of tea, silk, porcelain and silver. Among them are Bahram Modi, a wealthy Parsi opium merchant out of Bombay, his estranged half-Chinese son Ah Fatt, the orphaned amateur botanist Paulette and a motley collection of others in pursuit of romance, riches and a legendary rare flower. All struggle to cope with their losses—and, for some, unimaginable freedoms—in the alleys and crowded waterways of nineteenth-century Canton. As transporting and mesmerizing as an opiate induced dream, River of Smoke, book two in Amitav Ghosh’s Ibis trilogy, will soon be heralded as a masterpiece of twenty-first century literature.

1599 Amitav Ghosh
The Calcutta Chromosome
Penguin/Viking; New Delhi, India; 0143066552; First Edition; Paperback; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
In this extraordinary novel, Amitav Ghosh navigates through time and genres to present a unique tale. Beginning at an unspecified time in the future and ranging back to the late nineteenth century, the reader follows the adventures of the enigmatic L. Murugan. An authority on the Nobel Prize-winning scientist Sir Ronald Ross, who solved the malaria puzzle in Calcutta in 1898, Murugan is in search of the elusive ‘Calcutta Chromosome’. With its astonishing range of characters, advanced computer science, religious cults and wonderful portraits of Victorian and contemporary India, The Calcutta Chromosome expands the scope of the novel as we know it, as Amitav Ghosh takes on the avatar of a science thriller writer.
