Work Rules!: Insights from Inside Google That Will Transform How You Live and Lead
Hodder & Stoughton/Prakash Books; New Delhi, India; 1444792385; Softcover; New; 
Google receives over 1,500,000 unique applications for jobs every year. This book shows you why. * How to learn from your best employees - and your worst * Why you should only hire people who are smarter than you are * Take away managers' powers over employees * And why not to trust your gut instinct 'We spend more time working than doing anything else in life. It's not right that the experience should be so demotivating and dehumanizing.' So says Laszlo Bock, visionary head of People Operations at the company that transformed how the world interacts with knowledge: this insight is the heart of his brilliant first book. A compelling manifesto with the potential to change how we work and live, Work Rules! offers both a new philosophy of the new world of work and a blueprint for attracting the most spectacular talent and ensuring the brightest and best prosper. Your workplace and how you treat your employees has a huge effect on your success. In twelve vivid chapters, Bock lays out a series of surprising lessons from a range of industries - from household names to little-known innovators. He also takes us inside one of history's most explosively successful businesses to reveal why Google is consistently rated one of the best places to work in the world. His years of experience are distilled into a series of entertaining principles that are easy to put into action, whether you're a team of one or a team of thousands. Work Rules! shows how to strike a balance between creativity and structure, leading to success you can measure in quality of life as well as market share. Read it to build a better company from within rather than from above; read it to reawaken your joy in what you do. The way we work is changing - are you? 108426

Subhuticandra's Kavikamadhenu on Amarakosa 1.1.1-1.4.8: Together with Si Tu Pan Chen's Tibetan Translation (Indica Et Tibetica:55)
Aditya Prakashan; New Delhi, India; 2014; 392377656X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 19 x 25 Cm 
The Kavikamadhenu (composed between 1050 and 1120) is the longest and perhaps most important commentary on the Amarakosa. It quotes from almost 200 authorities and sources. So far less than 20 per cent of the Sanskrit text is accessible, although much more is extant in Tibet. The above-mentioned work is based on a precious codex unicus from Tibet. A sequel, based on a fragmentary Indian manuscript and covering the next 15 per cent of the work is under preparation. Printed Pages: 609 with 100012

17522 Late A. Appadorai
The Substance of Politics
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2000; 0195656334; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
This classic text is a well-integrated and comprehensive account of the essential principles of political theory and organization. It presents a consistent thesis that the State exists for the benefit of the individual and not the individual for the State. It provides critical as well as factual discussions on: forms of government and inter-state relations against the background of fundamental political concepts, such as liberty, equality, law and sovereignty; the history of government from the days of Greek city-states to modern times; the modern constitutions of the UK, the USA, the French Republic, Canada, Australia, Switzerland, and India; principles of governmental organization, its structure and working. As a clear, well-written and modern introduction to politics, this book serves as a primary textbook for students of political science at the undergraduate level, for both BA honours and pass courses. Hugely successful in its previous printings, it is also useful for the general reader looking for a lucid exposition of the basic ideas of politics. Printed Pages: 600. 013593

17530 Laura Gutman & Laura Kuurne (Eds)
Pohjoinen Uusrokokoo: Nyrokokon och Norden, Neo-Rococo and the North
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2015; 9522225762; New; 
Teos avaa näköaloja uusrokokoon maalaustaiteeseen ja asettaa ilmiön osaksi laajempaa 1700-luvun ihailua Ruotsissa ja Suomessa. Uusrokokoo ja sen pohjoinen muoto kustavilaisuus tunnetaan parhaiten sisustustyyleinä, ja rokokooajasta ammentava maalaustaide on vähemmän tunnettua. Teos nostaa esiin niitä kulttuurisia ja poliittisia taustoja, joita uusrokokoon taide ilmentää. Boken lyfter fram den starka 1700-talsbeundran som stimulerade senare tiders konstnärer i Finland och Sverige. Nyrokokon, och hos oss också den stramare nygustavianska stilen, är mycket kända som inredningsstilar, men det måleri som har tagit inspiration av 1700-talets ideal och stil är inte lika bekant. Boken sätter in fenomenet i kulturella, politiska och konstnärliga sammanhang. Printed Pages: 166. 114262

The Magical Self: Body, Society and the Supernatural in Early Modern Rural Finland (Folklore Fellows Communications 290)
Suomalainen Tiedeakatemia (Academia Scientiarum Fennica)/Bookstore Tiedekirja; Helsinki, Finland; 2006; 951410997X; Hardcover; New; New; 
HOW DID PERSONS IN THE PAST view their bodies, selves, and natural environment? Using personal narratives on traditional magic from one of the last cultures in Europe where sorcery and witchcraft were practiced, Laura Stark examines how a magic-oriented world view influenced early modern people’s thoughts, emotions, and unconscious behaviours. Although magic was conducted in secret, it was nonetheless a highly social activity. Thousands of recorded descriptions of harmful magic from 19th- and 20th-century Finland provide glimpses into the social pressure experienced by persons living before and during modernization. Why did persons carry out magic and narrate it within their communities? Why was a reputation for sorcery useful in 19th century village life? Magic and supernatural beliefs did not disappear from daily life simply because persons were educated in new scientific and materialist perspectives. What changed were the surrounding social and economic conditions which made magic a reasonable strategy in daily life. When these were transformed, so too were people’s modes of experience.

Lexicalization and Language Change
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2005; 0521540631; First Edition; Paperback; New; 228 x 152 Mm 
Lexicalization, a process of language change, has been conceptualized in a variety of ways. Broadly defined as the adoption of concepts into the lexicon, it has been viewed by syntacticians as the reverse process of grammaticalization, by morphologists as a routine process of word-formation, and by semanticists as the development of concrete meanings. In this up-to-date survey, Laurel Brinton and Elizabeth Traugott examine the various conceptualizations of lexicalization that have been presented in the literature. In light of contemporary work on grammaticalization, they then propose a new, unified model of lexicalization and grammaticalization. Their approach is illustrated with a variety of case studies from the history of English, including present participles, multi-word verbs, adverbs, and discourse markers, as well as some examples from other Indo-European languages. The first review of the various approaches to lexicalization, this book will be invaluable to students and scholars of historical linguistics and language change. • The first ever review of the various approaches to lexicalization that have been presented in the literature • Proposes a brand new, unified approach to lexicalization and grammaticalization • Draws on a wealth of data from the history of English Contents 1. Contexts for the study of lexicalization and grammaticalization; 2. Lexicalization: definitions and viewpoints; 3. The relation of lexicalization to grammaticalization; 4.

We make our own History: Marxism and Social Movements in the Twilight of Neoliberalism
Aakar Books; New Delhi, India; 2017; 9789350024720; Softcover; New; 
We live in the twilight of neoliberalism: the ruling classes can no longer rule as before, and ordinary people are no longer willing to be ruled in the old way. Pursued by global elites since the 1970s, neoliberalism is defined by dispossession and ever-increasing inequality. The refusal to continue to be ruled like this - "ya basta!" - appears in an arc of resistance stretching from rural India to the cities of the global North. From this network of movements, new visions are emerging of a future beyond neoliberalism. We make our own History responds to these visions by reclaiming Marxism as a theory born from activist experience and practice. This book marks a break both with established social movement theory, and with those forms of Marxism which treat the practice of social movement organising as an unproblematic process. It shows how movements can develop from local conflicts to global struggles; how neoliberalism operates as a social movement from above, and how popular struggles can create new worlds from below. Laurence Cox directs the MA in Community Education, Equality and Social Activism at the National University of Ireland Maynooth and co-edits the social movements journal Interface. He is active in a wide range of movements and has published Marxism and Social Movements (2013) and Understanding European Movements (2013). Alf Gunvald Nilsen is Associate Professor at the Department of Sociology, University of Bergen. His research focuses on social movements in the global South. He is the author of Dispossession and Resistance in India (2012) and co-editor of Social Movements in the Global South (2011) and Marxism and Social Movements (2013). Printed Pages: 272. 111680

Textualising the Siri Epic (Folklore Fellows Communications 264)
Suomalainen Tiedeakatemia (Academia Scientiarum Fennica)/Bookstore Tiedekirja; Helsinki, Finland; 1998; 9514108124; Hardcover; New; New; 
How does an illiterate singer produce a long oral epic? What is the origin of his “text”, available only for a fleeting moment at its performance? How can a multifaceted oral performance be transformed into a book? The primary oral textualisation and the secondary written codification of the Siri epic, 15,683 lines, are described in detail in the present volume on the basis of recent fieldwork among the speakers of Tulu, a Dravidian language, in southern Karnataka, India. The “oral author”, Mr Gopala Naika, is one of the many talented singers of oral epics in Tulunaadu and a possession priest in rituals which use oral epics as their mythical charter and a source of mental therapy.A Finnish-Indian team, Prof. Lauri Honko and Ms Anneli Honko, M.A., from the University of Turku and Prof. Viveka Rai and Dr Chinnappa Gowda from the University of Mangalore, documented the Siri epic on audio and video tape in December 1990. Only five lines shorter than the Iliad, this purely oral epic, published in Tulu and English, constitutes a point of comparison for researchers interested in the making of oral epics. The epic is published as two separate volumes, FFC 265-266.The present volume serves as an introduction to “textual ethnography”. Several core problems of tradition research are discussed, and new concepts, such as “mental text” and “multiform”, are introduced for the analysis of oral composition. Eleven earlier cases of textualisation, from Lönnrot and Radloff to Johnson and Smith, are reassessed from the methodological point of view. The main part expands to describe the textualisation process of the Siri epic in detail. Folkloristics, comparative religion, ethnopoetics and comparative research on epics are pooled to account for the complex religious and profane contexts of epic performances in Tulunaadu.

Cultural Studies in the Future Tense
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2012; 812504504X; Softcover; New; 
Lawrence Grossberg is one of the leading international figures in the study of the relations between political and popular cultures. In Cultural Studies in the Future Tense, he offers a powerful critique of the forms of progressive intellectual-political analyses. He asks why we so often tell the same stories over and over (as if the world were not changing or were changing in precisely the same ways) or tell stories that claim to be absolutely new (as if the world were magically new). He argues for an understanding of cultural studies as conjunctural analysis, based on commitments to contextualism, anti-reductionism and articulation. Cultural studies sees the world in terms of contingency and determination, the old and the new, economies and cultures, etc. Refusing to reduce modernity to its Euro-American forms, and challenging its taken-for-granted understandings, he argues that euro-modernity is a specific geo-historical actualization of a more complex and diverse diagram.Printed Pages:368. 101861

English Leadwork: Its Art and History
Donhead Publishing Ltd; Dorset, UK; 2002; 1873394608; Reprint; Hard Cover; Brand New; 22 Cms x 31 Cms 
Lawrence Weaver’s design reference work appeared in 1909, and is now available from Donhead in this re-printed facsimile edition. It describes and documents many examples of decorative leadwork, which being durable and attractive lends itself in its simplicity to a multitude of forms. Whilst examining in detail the history and workmanship to be found on fonts, statues, urns and vases, the book also includes more modest structures such as pipes, pipeheads and rain-water cisterns. The author also explores the use of lead in roofing, particularly for spires, steeples and domes, and points out that it is one of the most efficient of roofing materials, giving many excellent examples of its use on Sir Christopher Wren’s churches in London. With over 400 illustrations, comprising black and white photographs and drawings of all the different types of lead ornaments and structures, this volume will be of value to craftsmen engaged in leadwork, conservation professionals and all architects and architectural historians with an interest in this field. Contents: INTRODUCTORY CHAPTER FONTS: Destroyed and Incorrectly Described Examples – Geographical Distribution – Classification by Design – Detailed Description of the Thirty Existing Ancient Fonts – Various Font-like Vessels RAIN-WATER PIPEHEADS: Early Uses of Down-pipes – Hampton Court – Windsor Castle – Haddon Hall – Knole Park – Dome Alley, Winchester – Hatfield – Guildford – St John’s, Oxford – The Character of the Early Work – The Overlapping of Styles – Bolton Hall – Stonyhurst and Bideford – Local Schools of Leadwork – Shrewsbury, Nottingham, and Aberdeen CISTERNS: Possibilities of Decorative Treatment – The Great Tank at St Fagan’s – Methods of Making – West Country and London Cisterns Compared – Detailed Descriptions of Examples Illustrated MEDIÆVAL LEADED SPIRES: The Character of Spires – Classification – "Collar" and "Broach" – Destroyed Cathedral Spires – Existing Leaded Spires – Scots Leadworkers – St Nicholas, Aberdeen – Old St Paul’s – Chesterfield LEADED STEEPLES OF THE RENAISSANCE: Wren’s Steeples and the Sky-line of London – A Classification – Class (a), The Two True Spires – Class (b), The Spire-form Steeples – Some Destroyed Steeples – Scottish Examples – The Character of Wren’s Work LEADED DOMES, LANTERNS, AND WALLS – A LOST FOUNTAIN: Curves in Roof-lines, A Slow Development – The Use of Lanterns – Wren’s Treatment of Domes and Lanterns – Class (c), Constructive Details of their Leadwork – Archer’s Work – The National Gallery – Nonsuch and Cheapside – The Great Foundation of Windsor LEAD PORTRAIT STATUES: Fairfax – Charles II – William III – Marlborough – Prince Eugène – Queen Charlotte – Sir John Cass – George I LEAD FIGURES GENERALLY: The Cross of Cheapside – Neptune at Bristol – Karne – Melbourne, Derbyshire – Giovanni de Bologna – Harrowden Hall – Wrest Park – Wilton – Nun Monkton – Methods of Casting – Hampton Court – Syon – Castle Hill – Deceitful Figures – Forgers of "Antique" Leadwork – Studley Royal – The Water Note in Leadwork – Eighteenth-Century References to Statues – Hardwick Hall – Glemham Hall – Enfield Old Park – Norfolk Market Crosses –The London Apprentice VASES AND FLOWER-POTS: Shenstone on Urns – Melbourne – Parham House – Hampton Court –Windsor – Wilton – Castle Hill SEPULCHRAL LEADWORK: Romano-British Coffins and Ossuaries – Mediæval Coffins and Heart Cases – Absolution Crosses – Tomb Lettering VARIOUS OBJECTS AND DECORATIVE APPLICATIONS OF LEAD: Roman Pigs and Pipes – Pilgrims’ Signs – Papal Bullæ – Ornaments on Woodwork – Charms – Tobacco Boxes – Ventilating Quarries MODERN LEADWORK: Fonts – Rain-water Heads – Cisterns – The Larger Architectural Uses – Figures on Buildings and in Gardens – Fountains – Vases – Clock-faces – Sundials – Gasfitting – Inscription BIBLIOGRAPHY OF PAPERS, BOOKS, ETC., ON LEADWORK INDEX Printed Pages: 288 with over 400 illustrations. 023130

India's Healthcare Industry: Innovation in Healthcare Delivery, Financing, and Manufacturing
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2014; 1107044375; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book analyzes the historical development and current state of India’s healthcare industry. It describes three sets of institutions that deliver healthcare services finance these services and manufacture products used in these services. These institutions provide healthcare (hospitals physicians pharmacies and diagnostic laboratories) pay for healthcare (individuals who pay out-of-pocket insurance companies community insurance schemes government ministries) and produce the technology used in healthcare delivery (pharmaceuticals biotechnology and medical devices). The volume also discusses innovative efforts to raise capital for the development of these sectors. Finally it includes three interesting case studies of innovative models of healthcare delivery (L. V. Prasad Aravind and Vaatsalya) as well as analyses of other innovative organizations like Narayana Hrudayalaya and the hospital chains. The contributors to the volume include Wharton faculty members graduates of Wharton’s healthcare MBA program and executives and consultants from India.Printed Pages: 600. 101511

The Architectural Heritage of Himachal Pradesh: Origin and Development of Temple Styles
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1996; 812150712X; First Edition; Cloth; New; New; 23 Cms x 29 Cms 
The book provides a comprehensive, chronological, scientific and comparative analysis of extant temple styles of Himachal Pradesh from the sixth to the fourteenth century AD. It is primarily based on enormous architectural data collected through field surveys of temple sites in loco. Each temple has been examined in its socio-economic and cultural contexts. The temple exercised considerable influence on the devout and the laity, and dominated various facets of western Himalayan society and economy through its complex cultural network, by bringing under its clasp both royalty and the common people. The names of several artists and craftsmen who embellished exquisite specimens of art, lie enmeshed in a corpus of obscure epigraphs. By collecting and piecing them together, the book refutes the generally held view that Indian art is anonymous. The author has also tested the validity of textual prescriptions given in the Indian vastusastras and actual construction methods practised by the sutradharas in Himachal for the nagara temples through accurate measurements taken to the extent of a millimetre. The study reveals that the architects achieved mathematical homogeneity and a sense of scale and symmetry in their elaborate plan and elevation proportions. At the same time the temple forms were largely determined by assorted geographic and climatic factors. The text is richly illustrated and should be of interest to both specialists and general readers. Printed Pages: 204 with 48 line drawings and 88 b/w illustrations. 001733

17594 Laxmikanta Mishra & S.K. Mishra
Historians and Historiography of Orissa: A Study in Perception and Appropriation of Orissan History
Kaveri Book Service; New Delhi, India; 2005; 8174790527; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
This book is the result of the authors' years of painstaking research in the area of Orissan historiography. The broad contours, parameters and the detours of historiographical perception of Orissan history right from the ancient period till the modern has been comprehensively drawn which remained till the present a more or less unexplored area. Besides historiography of the ancient and medieval period, the modern historiography of Orissa which began with the British period, has been analyses broadly under such categories as Orientalist-colonialist, nationalist, biased and sober historical writings. Further since the Raj remained, all through the Imperial rule in India, the central piece of the British empire, the historiography of the British period in Orissa has been discussed in the backdrop of the multi-dimensional aspects of the perceptions and sensibilities which denote the British attitude to Indian history. The book is a pioneering attempt on Orissan historiography.Printed Pages: 412. 104173

17597 Lea Terhune
Karmapa: The Politics of Reincarnation
Wisdom Publications; Boston, USA; 2004; 0861711807; First Edition; Paperback; New; New; 15.5 Cms x 23 Cms 
While only a young man, Orgyen Trinley Dorje''s life has been marked indelibly by devotion, intrigue, and transformation. Karmapa: The Politics of Reincarnation is his amazing story. For Westerners, Tibet is a land of powerful spiritual teachings, staggering mountain vistas, and geopolitical intrigue. The country''s resistance to Chinese occupation, and also the growing presence of Tibetan Buddhism in the West, are not just part of our daily news but of the Western consciousness as well. In January 2000, interest hit a peak as fourteen-year-old Orgyen Trinley Dorje was thrust upon the world stage. Recognized as the Seventeenth Karmapa-arguably the second most powerful figure in the Tibetan Buddhist religious hierarchy-he made a dramatic escape from his Chinese Communist overseers to the land of the Buddha''s birth, India, so that he could study with the masters of his religious lineage, follow his conscience, and be a leader to his people. Through wide-ranging research and interviews with key figures, including the Karmapa himself, award-winning journalist Lea Terhune unlocks the riveting tale of the Karmapa''s disputed incarnation, and traces the roots of the Kagyu tradition and the history of the previous Karmapas in order to illuminate the tale of the young man born to play a key role in the future of Tibet.
