17902 Lao Tuz (Author) & Ralph Alan Dale (Tr.)
Tao Te Ching: A New Translation and Commentary by Ralph Alan Dale
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8178223589; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
An evocative and poetic new translation of this great ancient treasure with insightful and illuminating commentary, Ralph Alan Dale's book has captured the beauty and essence of this spiritual masterpiece. He translates Tao as 'the Great Integrity', that is the return to holism, honesty and creativity; our harmony with each other, with the environment and indeed within ourselves. We are perhaps the first generation in the 2500 years since this inspirational book was written, to fully appreciate the words and their message. It resonates with our 21st century hopes, dreams and new capacities as though Lao Tzu had written this remarkable book only for us.Printed Pages: 324. 102414

17903 Lao Tzu
Tao Te Ching: A New Translation
Shambhala Publication/TBI; New Delhi, India; 1611800773; Softcover; New; 
Renowned translator William Scott Wilson has rendered Lao Tzu’s spiritual and philosophical classic in the most authentic way possible, using both the ancient text from 200 BCE and characters from the even older Great Seal script used during Lao Tzu’s time. By accessing these earlier characters, Wilson is able to offer a text that is more authentic in language and nuance, while also preserving the poetry of the work.This translation is accompanied by exquisite seventeenth-century Chinese ink paintings and two short essays: one exploring the relationship between Taoism and Zen, and the other explaining the roots that link the spiritual aspects of the Tao to the practice of Chinese and Japanese martial arts.

Is There a Right of Freedom of Expression?
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0521529840; First Paperback Edition; Paperback; New; 150 x 230 Mm 
In this provocative book, Alexander offers a sceptical appraisal of the claim that freedom of expression is a human right. He examines the various contexts in which a right to freedom of expression might be asserted and concludes that such a right cannot be supported in any of these contexts. He argues that some legal protection of freedom of expression is surely valuable, though the form such protection will take will vary with historical and cultural circumstances and is not a matter of human right. Written in a clear and accessible style, this book will appeal to students and professionals in political philosophy, law, political science, and human rights. • One of the first books to take a sceptical view of freedom of expression as a human right • Comprehensive treatment of freedom of expression • Alexander is a well-respected legal theorist Contents Introduction; Part I. Defining Human Rights and Delimiting the Scope of Freedom of Expression: 1. Preliminaries: what is a human right, and what activities implicate freedom of expression?; 2. Freedom of expression and regulations that affect messages but are not enacted for that reason; 3. The puzzles of governmental purpose; Part II. The Core of Freedom of Expression: Government Regulations and Acts Taken To Affect Messages: 4. The core of freedom of expression: regulations of conduct for the purpose of affecting messages received; 5. Track three: Government speech and subsidies of speech; 6. Miscellaneous regulations of expression; Part III. Theoretical Perspectives on Freedom of Expression: 7. General justifying theories of freedom of expression; 8. The paradoxes of liberalism and the failure of theories justifying a right of freedom of expression; Epilogue: 9. Muddling through: freedom of expression in the absence of a human right.

Struggle in a Secular Age: Clashes of Christian Body and Soul
Christian World Imprints/B.R. Publishing Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2013; 819251210X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book is a collection of short stories depicting spiritual struggle within the contours of sobering and sometimes fatal situations. Some stories portray less serious and humorous situations, though with redemptive themes still intertwined. The characters and situations presented do not disappoint the reader's desire for pleasurable reading, though a sense of the fleeting world mixed with spiritual confrontation or confusion may give the reader pause before moving to the next story. For readers who like realistic religious fiction with plausible characters in trying circumstances, the book provides a variety of stories in the contest of wills between living for wrong things and the confrontations inevitable with a calling in Christ. While some stories within this book have this explicit context, others provide samples of the infinite battles that confront the believer living in a secular or distorted age.Printed Pages: 175. 106426

Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2003; 9516533213; New; 
Teoksessa tarkastellaan neljän Saimaan vesistöalueella sijaitsevan metsäteollisen kaupungin teollisen perustan muutosta maailmantalouden ja valtion muodostamassa viitekehyksessä vuosien 1890–1995 välisenä aikana geohistoriallisen metodin avulla.

Nordek: A Plan for Increased Nordic Economic Co-operation and Integration 1968-1970
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2007; 9516533477; New; 
This archive based study disproves the myth of ideological Nordism and of short term political developments outside Norden as most important for the NORDEK iniative. This study also disproves the myth that NORDEK plan was a political and ideological symbol without socioeconomic substance. The purpose with NORDEK was to create a better basis for generating economic growth and social welfare. The study finally shows that the NORDEK failure in 1970 was a result of a power struggle in Finnish domestic politics and lacking political will in the other Nordic countries to continue without Finland.

Radio sodissamme 1939-1945
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2010; 9522222240; New; 
Teos kertoo, miten suomalaiset käyttivät radioaaltoja hyväkseen omissa sotaponnisteluissaan. Vihollisen ja puolueettomien maiden radioasemat yrittivät vastaavasti vaikuttaa suomalaisten mielialoihin ja taistelumoraaliin. Suomen radiotarkkailu seurasi näitä lähetyksiä ja raportoi niistä maamme poliittiselle ja sotilaalliselle johdolle. Talvi- ja jatkosodan aikana Yleisradio huolehti myös joistakin salaisista tehtävistä. Tavallisille kansalaisille Yleisradio ja sen kautta lähetetyt ohjelmat tarjosivat puolestaan asiatietoa, viihdettä ja uutisia, joiden merkitys kasvoi etenkin sodan käännekohdissa. Kirjan liitteenä on dvd-levy (SKSDVD 16), joka sisältää autenttisia ääni- ja filminäytteitä sekä niihin liittyviä taustatietoja sotavuosiemme radio-ohjelmista. Printed Pages: 331. 115595

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.

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.

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

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

Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2012; 9522223883; New;

Thanks to its fresh approach and its detailed descriptions of methods, this book is of interest not only to both apprentice and more experienced ethnographers working in the field of migration studies but also to scholars conducting ethnographic research in other disciplines.

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.

The Kalevala and the World's Traditional Epics
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2002; 9517464223; New; 
On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the Kalevala thirty experts on comparative epic research from 12 countries met in Turku in August 1999 to debate the role of the Finnish national epic and its scientific significance. The classic bone of contention "Is the Kalevala an oral or a literary epic?" received the surprising answer, "It is neither!" The Kalevala belongs among the tradition-oriented epics, along with Homer, Beowulf, the Nibelungenlied and the Eddas. The collator-composers of these traditional epics remained faithful to tradition and faded into the background. Printed Pages: 487. 115105

17993 Lawrence Grossberg
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

17999 Lawrence Weaver with an Introduction By Andrew Naylor
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.
