Asunnon Muodonmuutoksia
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2002; 951746309X; New; 
Moderni, funktionalistinen asunto ja sen yhdenmukainen perheen malli korvasi 1900-luvun kuluessa vähitellen säädynmukaisen asumisen kirjon: työväestön hellahuoneet, maaseudun tuvan ja kamarin sekä porvarilliset edustushuoneisiin, yksityisiin tiloihin ja talousosaan jakautuneet asunnot. Modernin asunnon muotoutumista määritti ajatus ympäristön vaikutuksesta ihmisiin ja kasvava tietoisuus hygieniasta. Saarikangas tarkastelee muhkeassa tutkimuksessaan avarasti ja ajatuksia herättävästi puhtaan ilman, huoneiden tilavuuden, parvekkeiden ja ikkunoiden, auringonvalon ja siivoamisen luoman estetiikan ohella asumisen ja elämisen eri toimintojen eriytymistä 1900-luvun kaupunkiasumisessa.

Kirkollisen oikeudenkäytön päälähteillä
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2012; 9525031691; New; 
Katolista kirkkoa 1500-luvun taitteessa reformoimaan pyrkineen liikkeen näkemyksen mukaisesti paavillinen oikeudenhoito oli korruptoitunutta ja liiallisen byrokraattisuutensa vuoksi erittäin hidasta. Samaan näkemykseen ovat päätyneet vuosisatoja myöhemmin paavillista korkeinta tuomioistuinta Sacra Romana Rotaa tutkineet historioitsijat. Tämä Vatikaanin Salaisessa Arkistossa säilytettävään tuomioistuimen omaan lähdeaineistoon perustuva tutkimus mullistaa kuvan Rotan roolista korkeimpana paavillisena tuomioistuimena koko kristikunnan alueella myöhäiskeskiajalla ja uuden ajan alun taitteessa. Tutkimustulokset osoittavat, että oikeus ei toteutunut Rotan kautta niin suuressa määrin kuin on uskottu. Syynä tähän olivat riitelijät, jotka käyttivät Rotaa hyväkseen saavuttaakseen etuja itselleen. Printed Pages: 383. 114535

De Frimodiga: Barnmorskor, födande och kroppslighet på 1700-Talet
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2016; 9515833434; New; 
De Frimodiga är berättelsen om de första yrkesutbildade barnmorskorna i Finland. Från sent 1600-tal till riksupplösningen 1809 fick utvalda skrivkunniga borgarkvinnor sin utbildning av den främsta medicinska expertisen i Stockholm. Att som kvinna få rätt till yrkesutbildning, myndighetsmatk och rörelsefrihet var något alldeles exceptionellt vid denna tid, men motiverades med att barnadödligheten måste minskas. Boken bjuder på en spännande resa tillbaka till fenomen som graviditetsgördlar, ammor, maskerade föderskor, offentliga dissektioner, arsenik och läkeörter. Den ger också en inblick I samtida uppfattningar om sexualitet och kvinnokroppen. Printed Pages: 230. 115401

Sophie Creutz och hennes tid
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2011; 9515832233; New; 
I Sophie Creutz och hennes tid får vi stifta bekantskap med 1700-talets historia, livstil och tankevärld utgående från några adelsfamiljens öden i Finlands oroliga sydöstra hörn.

Huvudpersonernas liv präglades starkt av den politiska utvecklingen i samtiden, särskilt av relationerna mellan Sverige och Ryssland med krig, sammansvärjningar och landsförräderi som huvudingredienser.

Remote sensing as a tool in aquatic macrophyte mapping
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2005; 951427606X; New; 
Väitöskirjatutkimuksessa arvioitiin kaukokartoitus- ja paikkatietomenetelmien käyttökelpoisuutta vesikasvillisuuden tutkimuksessa. Tutkimuskohteena oli 18 Vuoksen vesistön järveä, jotka ilmakuvattiin väärävärifilmille vuosina 2000-2002. Ilmakuva-aineiston käsittelylle ja tulkinnalle oleellisia maastomittauksia kerättiin ilmakuvauskesinä differentiaalisella satelliittipaikantimella. Tutkimus osoitti, että ilmaversoinen ja kelluslehtinen vesikasvillisuus erottuu hyvin väärävärikuvilta ja ryhmittyy edelleen ilmiasun ja tiheyden mukaan eri luokkiin. Vesikasvillisuuden runsautta ja biomassan alueellista ja ajallista vaihtelua mallinnettiin ilmakuvien heijastusarvojen ja maastossa tehtyjen mittausten avulla. Ilmaversoisen ja kelluslehtisen kasvillisuuden runsauden ja kasvusyvyyden avulla luotiin vesikasvillisuudelle runsausmittari, kasvittumisaste. 114429

Badal Sircar: Search for a Language of Theatre
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2016; 9789383098965; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Badal Sircar was one of the most significant modern playwrights of post Independence India. Starting in the fifties, with his deep understanding of the concerns and anxieties of the Indian middle class coupled with his delightful sense of humour and wit, he made an immediate connect with the people and brought a new energy and excitement to the theatre arena with his large body of plays. He stands out for his innovativeness and the sheer range of his plays in terms of subjects, forms and styles. He is probably the most translated and staged Indian playwright of the last century.Badal Sircar with his unique and characteristic restlessness, passion and social commitment was constantly experimenting not only with dramatic form and language but also with performance spaces, acting styles and performer-spectator relationships. Through experiments and exposure to different methodologies he explored and developed his own theory and practice of theatre called the Third Theatre-a theatre of synthesis between the urban and the traditional theatre. Donning many hats - of playwright, theoretician, actor, director and activist - he was a composite theatre personality, and liked to be known as such. Single-handedly, he created a brand of theatre all over the country and overseas which empowered small amateur theatre groups to practise theatre without much infrastructure and training and with a strong sense of purpose.This book, through memoirs, interviews, essays, dialogues, reviews and notes by directors, traces the life and theatre of this iconic but lonely figure, from different viewpoints, piecing together his relentless creative journey of more than six decades.

Foreign Policy of Bangladesh
Kaveri Book Service; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8174791299; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Foreign policy is an instrument to promote and protect a country's national interest in the arena of international order. Foreign policy provides a general framework of a country's relations with various other states and non-state actors. The strength or weaknesses of a country are reflected in its foreign policy formulations and operationalisation. Therefore, foreign policy of a country is also a reflection of its status and power. In this regard foreign policy is closely related to domestic policy. In the context of the developing countries foreign policy implementation is a complex phenomenon as these countries are faced with numerous political and economic strains, pulls and pressures. In this age of global interdependence, where no nation can live in isolation, every state has to maintain some sort of relations with other states. This is usually done by pursuing the foreign policy. In keeping with this basic fact of state practice, Bangladesh also pursues a distinct course in its relations with the external environment. However, the operationalisation of foreign policy of a country is not an independent variable. It is shaped and conditioned by a set of variable which includes both stable and dynamic forces. In the present book an attempt has been made to find out the determinants of Bangladesh foreign policy, its decision making structure and the nature of its continuity and change. These are important for understanding the bases on which Bangladesh formulates its foreign policy. It contains eight chapters and appendices dealing with the issues of different determinants of foreign policy of Bangladesh including political, economic and regional factors. The book also highlights the relations of Bangladesh with USA, China, India, Pakistan and other neighbouring countries. Special features of the book include the backdrop of foreign policy along with emerging scenario in external relations of Bangladesh. This book would be of interest to decision makers, politicians, bureaucrats, researchers, consultants, researchers and students, as it deals with a wide array of foreign policy issues.Printed Pages: 320. 104222

Asian Diplomacy: The Foreign Ministries of China, India, Japan, Singapore, and Thailand
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0195694228; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
This study examines the geopolitical landscape and diplomatic culture of Asia’s five ascending powers—China, India, Japan, Singapore, and Thailand. It scrutinizes the structure and processes of their foreign ministries and the instruments through which foreign policy is implemented. It compares the practices in the leading foreign ministries of the world and how these nations are responding to the demands of globalized democracy in contemporary times. Rana explores related issues like internationalization, subject plurality, technology, public diplomacy, and accountability, and investigates whether these have undermined the relevance of the foreign ministry or have led to a decline of the state’s role in world affairs. Using information and data collected from more than 160 interviews in these countries, the author sheds important light on diplomacy in Asia, a region that merits close attention. He also examines the effectiveness of foreign ministries and their overseas networks; the recruitment and management of diplomatic services; recent evolution in diplomacy; training reforms; performance management; decision-making; crisis management; and style of negotiation. The author also discusses whether the methods of diplomacy are sufficiently adapted and flexible for fully exploiting opportunities available and whether the foreign ministries carry conviction with the home publics and deliver value to them. 020919

The kaleidoscope that is India comes to evocative life in its capital, Delhi, where a succession of cities have influenced the country's fortunes over centuries. If Delhi provides a tantalising glimpse of India's history, caught in a time-warp of the past and the present, then Agra--once also the capital of the country--is a shrine for worshippers of beauty. It leitmotif is the Taj Mahal, humankind's purest, most beautiful requiem to love. At the third end of the Golden Triangle is Jaipur, the provincial capital of Rajasthan. The book captures the ambience of these three cities, in words and pictures, blending them together to offer a fascinating glimpse of enduring India.

Inner Voices: Stories
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0143031120; First Edition; Paperback; New; New; 13 Cms x 20 Cms 
A celebrated writer takes an honest and uncompromising look at individuals and their tangled lives Kishori Charan Das, winner of the Sahitya Akademi Award in 1976, is an eminent Oriya author whose works have been widely translated. In this collection of nine short stories, Das observes the many facets of the Indian middle class, the choices they make, the disenchantments and anxieties that characterize their lives, their petty foibles and great expectations. A father, who has found comfort in the stillness of a flower in his garden, silently battles his restless son; a simple tailor’s unwavering faith in God is pitted against an educated lawyer’s sense of intellectual superiority; a mother and daughter engage in unspoken recriminations and justifications as they strive to bridge years of distances; and a couple in the twilight of their lives spar with each other, bickering over shared memories as they move towards a semblance of understanding.

Twilight of the Sultanate: A Political, Social and Cultural History of the Sultanate of Delhi from the Invasion of Timur to the Conquest of Babur 1398-1526
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1980; 8121502276; Revised Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
Twilight of the Sultanate is a political, social and cultural history of the Sultanate of Delhi from the invasion of Timur to the conquest of Babur (1398-1526). This period of a century and a quarter presents the spectacle of a curious contradiction of unceasing political upheavals and great cultural achievements. It is not only a coherent sequence of history and continuity that the author portrays in this volume, but the very atmosphere of those turbulent and disorderly days. Timur's capture of Delhi vivifies the terror of the times, amidst which Timur, who was sixty-three, 'immersed himself in pleasure and enjoyment.' 'No one ever achieved a victory over Bahlul Lodi,' and yet he could calmly tell his restive Afghan nobles: 'If you do not think me worthy of the Station (of monarch), you may choose someone else.' Sikandar Lodi, always loved to have the learned Ulema about him, but drank wine in secret 'to keep himself in health.' And Babur's keen intellect rightly noted that India 'has masses of gold and silver,' a fact in many ways responsible for her chequered history. "In the political field the first half of the 15th century was a period of decay; the second half of upheavals, but in the cultural field it was an age of sustained progress," says the author. This period witnessed great developments in architecture, music, education and social reform. "There was a continuous progress of synthesis in spite of all conflicts, political, social, intellectual." Muriel Wasi, therefore, in a review of the earlier edition of the Twilight of the Sultanate rightly observes: 'Even more interesting are the final observations of the author on the emergence of an integrated Indian culture.' As Professor Lal says" "Babur appreciated it and Akbar worked upon it." In brief, Twilight of the Sultanate "is a painstaking and scholarly book, which Indian medievalists will find indispensable."-The Time Literary Supplement, London Printed Pages: 372. 026684

The History of the Khaljis A.D. 1290-1320
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1980; 812150211X; Revised Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
The rule of the Khalji dynasty (AD 1290-1320) covers a short but fateful period of Indian history. During this period practically the whole of India was gathered under the suzerainty of Alauddin Khalji (1296-1316). His valour in war was matched with his courage in the field of administration. His accomplishments in the spheres of art and culture were equally great. Alauddin Khalji and his dynasty have found an able historian to pen their history, and the result is as satisfying as it is instructive. Professor K.S. Lal's History of the Khaljis has been acclaimed as a great work on this period of the history of medieval India. When it was first published thirty years ago in 1950, Professor Mohammad Habib commented: "Dr. K.S. Lal has managed to fill a very important gap in our national history. I have read his work several times with pleasure and profit. (He) has utilized for his work all contemporary authorities which seem to be within the reach of the present generation in Persian, Hindi and Sanskrit. He has critical discrimination and complete freedom from all prejudices...No student of Indian history can afford to ignore Dr. Lal's excellent work." Similarly, Sir Hamilton Gibb wrote to the author in a letter in September 1952: "At all events, I do want to thank you for a work which will be of the greatest service to me and others for its critical examination of the sources...I have no sympathy with those ideological investigators who think that by standing the old chroniclers on their heads they will somehow be able to extract from them materials for re-writing history to fill their own preconceptions." Professor Lal's work contains no shibboleths or generalizations. It is based on solid facts and primary source materials. A revised edition of the work was published in 1967 and the Time Literary Supplement, London, noted in its issue of 14 December, 1968: "When the book was (first) published...it took its place at once among the standard authorities...for the Khalji dynasty...In its latest form, this book is unlikely to be superseded." The statement has held good all these years. Printed Pages: 404. 024609

Classical Indian Philosophy of Mind: The Nyaya Dualist Tradition
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2001; 8120817044; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book examines psycho-physical dualism as developed by the Nyaya school of Indian philosophy. Dualism is important to many world religions which promote personal immortality and to morality which promotes free will. For the Nyaya, the self is a permanent, immaterial substance to which non-physical internal states like cognition belong. This view is challenged by other Indian schools, especially the Buddhist and Carvaka schools. Chakrabarti brings out the connections between the Indian and the Western debates over the mind-body problem and shows that the Nyaya position is well developed, well articulated, and defensible. He shows that Nyaya dualism differs from Cartesian dualism and is not vulnerable to some traditional objections against the latter. A brief discussion of the Samkhya and the Advaita theories of the self and the critique of these views from the Nyaya standpoint are included, as well as a discussion of a classical Nyaya causal argument for the existence of God. The appendix contains an annotated translation of selected portions of Udayana's Masterpiece, Atmatattvaviveka (Discerning the Nature of the Self).Printed Pages: 309. 102137

Christian World Imprints/B.R. Publishing Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2017; 9789351481942; Hardcover; New; New; 
What is the meaning of "land"? Does it refer to an agricultural land or a dry land without cultivation or a living territory or a political nation or a cosmic earth? Kiyeho Sema begins his arguments with a premise that the land theology of the eighth century prophets is basically a tripartite relationship and that such tripartite understanding is shaped by and rooted in various historical and religious traditions of ancient Israel. To substantiate the arguments, he has selected some key texts for exegetical inquiry by employing the form critical and traditio-historical methods to define the meaning of land and see how such meanings are shaped by various traditions embedded in the text.

Analytical Profiles of Drug Substances, 33 Vols.
Elsevier; New York, USA; 2005; Reprint; Hard Cover; New; 
Although the official compendia define a drug substance as to identity, purity, strength, and quality, they normally do not provide other physical or chemical data, nor do they list methods of synthesis or pathways of physical or biological degradation and metabolism. Such information is scattered throughout the scientific literature and the files of pharmaceutical laboratories. Edited by the Associate Director of Analytical Research and Development for the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists, Analytical Profiles of Drug Substances and Excipients brings this information together into one source. The scope of the series has recently been expanded to include profiles of excipient materials. Set of 33 volumes 028415

India and the Hellenistic World
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2017; 812084100X; Hardcover; New; New; 
The cultural interaction between India and the Hellenistic world does not usually receive the attention it deserves. Scholars go on trying to derive features of classical Hinduism from the Veda, without seriously taking into consideration that parts of the subcontinent were once ruled by Greeks, whose culture exerted a profound influence. The author has planned Graeco-Indian relations throughout their history in three volumes. According to this India in Early Greek Literature is the first volume, and present volume, India and the Hellenistic World is second, while third volume is India and the Roman West . In the first volume the author has discussed the Greek accounts of India and the relations between India and Greece until Alexander’s Indian campaign. Later authors, like Megasthenes, were mentioned only when their information was relevant for this purpose. In present volume focus is on the Hellenistic period in the narrow sense of the word, from Alexander to the rise of Roman Imperial hegemony. The main object is to collect, explain and discuss the relevant passage in Greek and Latin literature in their relation to Greek and Roman society and literary traditions as well as to then existing information about India and other Asian countries, in some cases Africa too. The methods are philological, but author has also made an earnest attempt to find out and utilize the new evidence offered by such disciplines as archaeology, epigraphy, and numismatics.

Lapsen varhaiskielioppi ja Miniparadigmat
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2011; 9522222593; New; 
Teoksessa syvennytään lapsen kieliopin varhaiskehitykseen, erityisesti sen tärkeään käännekohtaan, lapsen oman kielellisen aktiivisuuden käynnistymiseen ja miniparadigmojen muodostumiseen: kun lapsi on oppinut riittävän monia sananmuotoja, hän alkaa rakentaa muutaman keskeisen muodon taivutusverkostoa ja sitten yhä laajempaa järjestelmää. Tähän kehitysvaiheeseen liittyvät paitsi sanojen taivuttamisen ensi vaiheet myös sellaisten omien analogiamuodosteiden tuottaminen kuin juoksetaan, itkes, harjoi, uuseja, varvasen, hyljen jne. Aikuiskielestä poikkeavat muodosteet ovat tyypillisiä vaiheelle, jossa lapsen oma kielellinen prosessointi pääsee vauhtiin. Printed Pages: 286. 116254

Forest Tribes of Orissa: Lifestyle and Social Conditions of Selected Orissan Tribes, Vol. 4
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8124608253; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Forests, a precious renewable resource, are habitats of many aborigines and treasure houses of a large number of flora and fauna. Any distortion to them imbalances the life of their inhabitants. Man and Forest series highlights the relevance of indigenous knowledge systems of various South Asian tribal communities in the sustainable management of local resources/forests. Here comes the importance of making a scientific enquiry into the application of indigenous tribal knowledge in rediscovering their methods of production, consumption and conservation, against the all-pervading impact of modernity and the ever-increasing demand for an unbridled use of natural resources.This monograph — The Hill Bhuinya of Kendujhar — is the eighth in the Man and Forest series and fourth in the Forest Tribes of Orissa: Lifestyle and Social Conditions of Selected Orissan Tribes. It helps in understanding how the Bhuinya perceive their ecosystem; how their sociocultural life is interwoven with the forests and other elements of their ecosystem; their management systems for upkeeping it; and the role their indigenous knowledge plays in their production, consumption and conservation practices, against the backdrop of a considerable depletion of biodiversity during the latter part of the twentieth century.This book is the result of a detailed study on the forest/hill-dwelling tribe of the Bhuinya of Bhuinyapirh in Banspal Block, Kendujhar District, Odisha since 1996 by a team of anthropologists, ethnosociologists, botanists and ethnobotanists. It was critically revised and analysed, using authentic methods due to changes in the state and central government policies, recently. Printed Pages: 304. 107461

A hydelpower project in the remote Himalayas. Three people brought together by fate. Nanda, an engineer from Kerala at the dam construction site hiding from his past, from the law, torn between the love of his dear ones and the traditional kalari code of revenge. Khusru, a boy displaced from his native village in Kashmir, a gambit in the terror plot threatening to blow up the dam, working as a labourer at the site. Rekha, a Kathak dancer in heart, a doctor by profession, arrives at the campsite as the consort of Khusru. A village that accepts the dictates of modernity with a heavy heart, its population steeped in superstitions and religious beliefs.Printed Pages: 283. 102443

17396 Kokilam Subbiah; Translated By Thoorathu Pachai
Mirage
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2007; 8125030700; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Set in the tea plantations of Sri Lanka, Mirage traces the lives of Valli and her family, migrants from a village in Tamil Nadu in search of a better livelihood. The novel depicts the lives of indentured labourers working in these plantations and explores the social structure and the norms of plantation life—an arena defined by economic and sexual exploitation. Through Valli’s world, we gain insight into the complex social relationships – between husband and wife, parent and child, worker and supervisor, friend and neighbour – in these remote plantations. Mirage, translated from the Tamil Thoorathu Pachai, records human dignity in the face of human brutality. The novel chronicles a hitherto ignored piece of human history. Printed Pages: 200. 031643

17400 Kolar Krishna Iyer and Chikkerur Dheerendra Acharya
The Great Men and Women of Puranas
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8121510600; First Edition; Cloth; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
The saints and sages in our Puranas have left a rich spiritual and moral legacy as to how to cultivate devotion, acquire spiritual knowledge and become true devotees of the Lord of the universe by self-sacrifice, adherence to truth, justice, equality, compassion and love towards all living being irrespective of caste and creed and mild or wild animals. Why should we read books like The Great Men and Women of Puranas? Because as Dr S. Radhakrishnan, the great philosopher, statesman and former president of our country has observed: “We do not realize adequately to what extent out mind are moulded by the books we read especially in youth. When we read classics, our minds become dyed to their thoughts. Great books foster the psychological health of the reader. They induce in us largeness of mind and normative vision. They give us moral contentment.” Details of lives of great men and women of Puranas which are scattered in the eighteen Puranas and the great Epic, the Mahabharata, are culled and knit together in these biographies.
