A School Counsellor’s Diary
Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789383260430; Softcover; New; 
A School Counsellors Diary aims to bridge the gap in the modern Indian parent-adolescent relationship. Aimed at parents and written in an easy-to-understand style, with numerous reallife examples, this book illustrates the genuine problems faced by modern adolescents in the classroom, family sphere and wider world. Presented through thirty-four case studies spanning a wide range of problems faced by the new generation, the book includes seldomspoken- about issues such as masturbation, homosexuality, sexual abuse, self-cutting and even attempted suicide. A School Counsellors Diary guides parents towards imparting the skills and confidence that adolescents need to protect themselves in the new world. Each chapter gently eases the reader into a new issue through anecdotes, stories and even technical knowledge presented in an easy-to-understand way. Once the reader is familiar with the topic, several case studies are reproduced as if the author and the reader are sharing a chat over coffee. Written in the first person, the accounts are refreshingly compelling because they are presented as honest, easy-toread conversational transcripts as they happened without the frills of text-bookish or technical language. They show the pain behind various problems, their manifestation and ultimately, how the problem was solved/handled through weeks or months of counselling. Each chapter ends with a list of red flags to watch out for and possible courses of action to follow in case of problems. Since there is no preaching narrative or one-size-fits-all recommendations, it is hoped that discerning parents will use the book to understand the pitfalls facing their adolescents and initiate a better connection. 109620

Territorial Army: Future Challenges
Vij Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789382652120; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book has been written with intent of echoing a fact that the defence of a nation is a right of every one of its citizens. It tries to apprise countrymen about the availability of an efficient and flexible citizen-friendly tool the Territorial Army (TA) existing in our country for everyone to fulfill this right. It has been attempted to highlight the potential of TA as a national reserve and the identity crisis it is presently facing. Can Army be everywhere? Do we really need a force like TA when adequate standing army is there? How large a reserve force can our country afford? An attempt has been made to address all such issues and bring out answers.Printed Pages: 152. 103271

India's Energy Security
Vij Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789382652151; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book explores the multifaceted aspects of India's energy security concerns. It sheds light on India's energy insecurity and explores its various dimensions, its nature and extent. It examines the role that trade, foreign and security policy should play in enhancing India's energy security. It is argued that the key challenge for India is to increase economic growth while at the same time keeping energy demands low. This is especially challenging with the transition from biomass to fossil fuels, the growth of the motorized private transport and rising incomes, aspirations and changing lifestyles. The book suggests that at this time there are strong arguments to lessen India's fossil fuel dependence and it argues for a need to engage with all the key sources of this dependence to implement a process of energy change.Printed Pages: 120. 103235

Reactive Systems: Modelling, Specification, and Verification
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0521875463; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 175 x 255 Mm 
Formal methods is the term used to describe the specification and verification of software and software systems using mathematical logic. Various methodologies have been developed and incorporated into software tools. An important subclass is distributed systems. There are many books that look at particular methodologies for such systems, e.g. CSP, process algebra. This book offers a more balanced introduction for graduate students that describes the various approaches, their strengths and weaknesses, and when they are best used. Milner’s CCS and its operational semantics are introduced, together with notions of behavioural equivalence based on bisimulation techniques and with variants of Hennessy-Milner modal logics. Later in the book, the presented theories are extended to take timing issues into account. The book has arisen from various courses taught in Iceland and Denmark and is designed to give students a broad introduction to the area, with exercises throughout. • Broad accessible introduction to the topic - the first book to cover all the different approaches • Based on taught courses, and containing case studies and many exercises, this book is ideal as a graduate text • Offers first presentation in book form of Hennessy-Milner logic with recursive definitions and its applications Contents Preface; Part I. A Classic Theory of Reactive Systems: 1. Introduction; 2. The language CCS; 3. Behavioural equivalences; 4. Theory of fixed points and bisimulation equivalence; 5. Hennessy-Milner logic; 6.

Tsomo, A Young girl, was unaware of the tragedy that devastated the life of her Family and countrypeople. The elders never spoke of the past for fear of reprisal. It was in the course of her pilgrimage by prostration from her home town to Lhasa, the forbidden city, a stretch of over 1000 miles, that made her gradually aware of what happened before she was born. She also came to understand the perpetual fear in which her fellow countrypeople were living. Her pilgrimage took a new turn.Printed Pages: 2012. 103667

51 Greatest Modern Heroes: Heroes Who Changed the World
Jaico Publishing House; Delhi, India; 818495039X; Softcover; New; 
Everyone needs a hero. Heroes are people who make a difference in our world and are often considered larger than life. They are the men and women of action, who think great thoughts, have nerves of steel and make personal sacrifices to initiate change. Heroes are the models we put up to our children as the people to be and act like.A modern hero is not always a great general or statesman, but more often ordinary men and women who have influenced our society, changed our views and sought to make the world a better place. They entertain us, make us laugh and cry and have even given their lives for their ideas and their values.Our heroes are men and women from all walks of life, from around the world who, through science, politics, war, letters, music, sports and the media stood above even the best of us. They often speak to us directly and indirectly about the things that are most important in our lives and they challenge us to be like them, to follow them and ultimately respect them even if we do not always agree with them but without them, our lives would be significantly different.Printed Pages: 224. 105423

Debates on Civilization in the Muslim World: Critical Perspectives on Islam and Modernity
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 0199466882; Hardcover; New; New; 
Since its birth as a concept, civilization has been defined by an encounter with the ‘other’. Barbarism, the ever-ready counter concept, has provided civilization with its raison d'être—that of exerting violence upon other societies to ‘civilize’ them. Enlightenment thinkers defined civilization as an opponent of nature, while science and technology, tools with which nature was to be conquered, became one of the basic indicators of development. Thus was formed the unbroken tie between civilization and science. In the Muslim world, civilization became a synonym for modernization, a lifestyle imposed by the colonialists and their local counterparts. However, as this volume reveals, the resistance to and reception of Western modernity by non-Western societies is not homogenous, nor is the ‘othering’ unidirectional. If the Orientalist discourse portrayed the Islamic East as an exotic, seductive, and untamed ‘other’, a corresponding Occidentalism also stereotyped the West as the soulless, mechanistic ‘other’ to Islam. Challenging the embedded prejudices within social theory, Debates on Civilization in the Muslim World questions the Eurocentric understanding of civilization and also explores the themes of modernization, globalization, and the future of the civilization debate.

The Mahabharata and the Yugas: India's Great Epic Poem and the Hindu System of World Ages
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8120834844; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book questions the conventional wisdom that a fully matured theory of the yugas-Hinduism's ages of the world-is integral to the Mahabharata, and it illustrates how traditional commentators and modern scholars have read the later Puranic yuga theory into the Mahabharata, in particular when it comes to placing the action at the beginning of the current terrible Kali Yuga. Luis Gonzalez-Reimann discusses the meaning of key terms in the epic by examining the text and early Buddhist sources. This book also traces the sectarian appropriation of the yuga system in later literature and documents how modern religious movements have used the system to proclaim the arrival of a new, prosperous Krta Yuga, a phenomenon that coincides with New Age expectations.Printed Pages: 298. 102089

T'an Ssu-T'ung, 1865-1898: Life and Thought of a Reformer
E.J. Brill; Leiden, The Netherlands; 1996; 9004104712; First Edition; Hard Cover; Brand New; Brand New; 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
The first full-length study in English on T'an Ssu-t'ung, a well-known scholar-reformer in late-Ch'ing China. Based on a rich variety of primary sources, it traces T'an's progress from his early years to his summary execution during the palace coup in 1898. The Introduction explains the premises and sources pertinent to this study, while the Epilogue provides an overall interpretation of T'an's life. The remaining eight chapters are organized in such a way as to allow a chronological and thematic appreciation of the book's subject matter. This is more than a biography of a remarkable individual. By placing T'an's personal experience in the larger social and political contexts, it also sheds light on an emergent intellectual community in modern China.

The Kurdish Question : Identity, Representation and Struggle for Self-Determination
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789383649365; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The book examines several models which have been advocated for a workable and acceptable solution to the Kurdish problem which would be absolutely necessary for stability in the West Asian region. The book evaluates how the more than two-decade long experience of Kurdish self-rule in a democratic framework in Iraqi Kurdistan affects the debate over the other Kurdish regions in West Asia. With Turkey’s European Union accession process contributing to the opening of the political space to ethno-nationalism, there is a need for a non-military solution to the Kurdish issue. The book analyses the role of Kurdish diaspora which plays a significant part in placing the Kurdish question on the European political agenda. It also examines the role of the Kurds in the aftermath of the Arab Spring and the changing geopolitics in the region. Now, the Kurds maintain the strongest platform in battling against the ISIS terrorists.Printed Pages: 301. 105033

Displaced By Development: Confronting Marginalisation and Gender Injustice
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8178299003; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This compilation is a rare attempt to apply gender analysis to development-induced-displacement and resettlement in the Indian context. It brings together leading scholar-activists, researchers and contributors from people’s movements to critique and draw attention to the injustices perpetrated during such processes. Facing up to the need to focus specifically on how displacement and resettlement affect social groups differently with regard to axes such as gender, class, caste and tribe, the articles show that disenfranchised groups are deemed dispensable and tend to be affected the most, and that women and children among them suffer disproportionately. Displaced by Development: Confronting Marginalisation and Gender Injustice argues that without differentiated analyses and programmes, displacement and resettlement will continue to intensify and perpetuate gender and social injustice. This work will hold the interest of a wide readership and will be a crucial source of information for those working in the areas of Gender and Social Policy, Economics and Development Studies, Sociology of Gender, Environment and Development, Migration Studies, Anthropology, and South Asian studies. It will also interest policy makers in development agencies, activists and non-governmental organisations concerned with forced displacement and migration issues. Printed Pages: 356. 028858

'Honour': Crimes, Paradigms, and Violence Against Women
Zubaan; New Delhi, India; 8189013807; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
'Honour' brings together the practical insights and experience of individuals and organisations working in diverse regions and contexts to combat 'crimes of honour'. The authors examine strategies of response to such manifestations of violence against women, focusing largely on 'honour killings' and interference with the right to choice in marriage, and the related use and legal treatment of the defence of 'honour' and 'provocation' in different countries of Europe, the Middle East, Latin America and South Asia. This timely book is distinctive in approach and content, highlighting activist and practice-oriented academic perspectives from both the South and the North. The authors give voice to the struggle to locate 'crimes of honour' firmly within the international framework of violence against women and human rights rather than positioning these abuses as specific to particular cultures or communities. The first of its kind, this book serves as a resource in addressing 'honour crimes' and, more broadly, violence against women, and will be of interest to a multi-disciplinary academic audience as well as lawyers, policy-makers and activists. Contents Acknowledgements Preface: Violence against women and 'crimes of honour' Introduction: 'Honour', rights and wrongs 1. United Nations approaches to 'crimes of honour' 2.

Agni Mahapuranam (Sanskrit Text with Romanized, English Translation, Sloka Index and Word Index and Introduction), 3 Vols
New Bharatiya Book Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8183151051; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Puranas occupy a unique position in Indian literature, both sacred and secular. Composed at different times, they not only contain valuable historical material, but also canons relating to several spheres of art and life. The Puranas have enabled our people to maintain unimpaired the sense of the unity of India. Agni-Purana, although it begins with Visnu, still it is in essence a Saivite work and treats exhaustively the mystic cult of the linga (Phallus) and of Durga. There are chapters on cosmology, genealogy and Geography which are all so characteristic of the Puranas. But what characterizes this Purana is its encyclopedic character. It actually deals with each and everything. In it we find chapters on Astronomy and astrology, on marriage and funeral rites, on omens and portents, house construction and other customs of everyday life and also on politics (Niti) and the art of warfare, on law, on medicine, prosody, poetics and grammar. The present work is the Agni-Purana with the Sanskrit text in Devanagari as well as Roman script. This has been supported by the translation into English by M.N. Dutt. It is the first time that the Agni-Purana is appearing in such a user-friendly format and will surely find A Good readership amongst scholars and students alike.Printed Pages: 1515. 104023

Groundwater Management in India: Physical. Institutional and Policy Alternatives
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0761935355; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Groundwater is becoming an increasingly popular resource because of the relative ease and flexibility with which it can be tapped. While developing groundwater resource promises to help alleviate poverty in many areas, the most formidable challenge is its sustainable use and management in regions where it is under threat. The central focus of this book is groundwater management in India: the economies that groundwater generates, the socio-economic impact of its intensive use, and the physical, institutional and policy options for its management. The book provides a fresh analysis of the socio-ecology of groundwater, based on a synthesis of macro and micro level data on the hydrological, social, economic and institutional parameters. The region of North Gujarat has been specifically studied to document the uncontrolled use of groundwater and the ill-effects of such exploitation. With alarming drops in water levels and increasing levels of fluorides and TDS in groundwater, the region’s water problems have attracted international attention because of their implications in terms of reducing the viability of irrigated agriculture as also their impact on community health. The findings are used to draw policy conclusions regarding the tools for managing groundwater in other regions with similar resource and use characteristics. The authors have used several new methodologies, analytical procedures and criteria to analyse groundwater use in agriculture, the economic value of groundwater, water intensity of milk production and the efficient use of groundwater.

The Truth About Cheating: Why Men Stray and What You Can Do To Prevent It
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8126529016; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
Unlike other books that have focused on wives' feelings about and experiences with cheating husbands, this book is based on a research study the author conducted for which he interviewed and studied nearly 100 men who have cheated on their wives. When Neuman asked the question What is the real cause of your infidelity: sexual dissatisfaction, emotional dissatisfaction, both equally, or something else?,surprisingly, the majority said that emotional dissatisfaction outweighed sexual dissatisfaction by far. Drawing on dramatic case stories of the author's own practice, the book includes proactive strategies and action steps for married women and men that will help them prevent infidelity and deal with it if it happens. The author's goal is to help couples save their marriages, and he writes in a warm and friendly tone.Printed Pages: 232. 104909
