Indian Culture and India's Future
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2011; 812460567X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Can Indian civilization be compared to a "thousand-branched tree"? What have been its outstanding achievements and its impact on the world? These are some of the questions this book asks. But it also deals with issues confronting more and more Indians caught in an identity crisis: What does it mean to be Indian? What is specific to the worldview developed by Indian culture? How has it dialogued with other cultures? Is it built on durable foundations, or is it little more than colourful religiosity and quaint but outdated customs? And what are the meaning and application of secularism and tolerance in the Indian context? The French-born author, who has been living in India for 33 years, argues that Indian culture is not some exotic relic of the past, but a dynamic force that still has a role to play in defining India's identity and cohesion, and in proposing solutions to today's global challenges. Written in a crisp and engaging style, this thought-provoking volume challenges received ideas on India's culture and invites us to think afresh.Printed Pages: 248. 100534

18705 Michel de Grece
The Raja of Bourbon
Lotus/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 817436806X; Softcover; New; 
An intriguing tale of grit, courage and adventure, The Raja of Bourbon is a well-researched historical account that traces the 'swashbuckling narrative' of Jean de Bourbon, a nephew of Henry IV, the first Bourbon French king. In the mid-sixteenth century Jean embarks on his first journey from France to survive attempts to assassinate him. Alone in the wide world, he is kidnapped by pirates and sold at an Egyptian slave market. From Egypt to Ethiopia, his journey is full of adventures, each more incredible than the other. In 1560, Jean finally arrives at the court of the Mughal emperor Akbar, ushering in a long trail of Bourbons in India. Balthazar de Bourbon, Jean's sole descendant in India, still stays in Bhopal, proud of his legendary ancestor and family history. Printed Pages: 196. 108576

Rock Art in the Old World (IGNCA Rock Art Series-1)
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2001; 8185503001; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 22 x 28 Cm 
Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts dira-gandhi">Indira Gandhi he Old World is an invaluable documentation of what is probably the first manifestation of the creative urge of man. It consists of selected papers from the World Congress of Rock Art held in Darwin in 1988. For the first time rock art of very broad geographical regions covering the continents of Africa, Asia and Europe have been dealt within one book. Little known traditions such as the panorama of Chinese art and that of the former Soviet Union have been studied. Samples of rock art identified only recently have been described. The papers presented in this volume are convincing proof of the importance of the study of Rock Art, both for Archaeology as also ethnology and lifestyle studies. The vast spectrum shows that although there has been a History of research on Rock Art, as A Young discipline it is exploring various avenues of growth. Several of the papers indicate the extensive research carried out in India. The Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts (IGNCA) is a premier institution pursuing Rock Art research in a universal context. One important component of its programme is the establishment of the gallery of primeval sight called Adi Drsya, dedicated to everything that is understood by the word palaeo-art. This unique volume is the first in the IGNCA series of Rock Art Studies. It is meant for wide ranging specialists and students interested in human history and art. Printed Pages: 572. 100226

Bastar Folk Art: Shrines, Figurines and Memorials
Franco Indian Research Pvt. Ltd; Mumbai, India; 1999; 8190018450; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 23 Cms x 29 Cms 
The present work documents different aspects of the cultural heritage of the district of Bastar. While the varied lifestyles of the Maria and Muria Gonds, and other groups, have been the focus of considerable anthropological research, relatively little is known of the numerous temples that represent the establishment of the Nagvansi dynasty in the 10th century and subsequently that of the Kakatiya. The ruins of Bhongapal and Garh Gobrahin are estimated to be older and bear testimony to the transitory efflorescence of the Buddhist and Vaisnavite faiths. Their influence on the socio-religious structure of the indigenous population is reflected in the village shrines, highlighting an on-going process of mutual enrichment. In illustrating the most important places of worship, an attempt has been made to explore the intersection of traditions. The subtle interplay of cultural interaction through time renders it difficult to distinguish the 'folk' from the classical, indicating the need to review our concepts of Indian art.

18720 Michelle Friedman
God in All Worlds: A Journey to Light
Harpercollins India Publishers Ltd./Prakash Books; New Delhi, India; 9789351775140; Softcover; New; 
Born in Johannesburg to a Catholic mother and a Jewish father, Michelle Friedman practises Catholicism until her father divorces her mother and, at fourteen, converts her to Judaism. So begins a spiritual journey leading to Padre Pio, a priest who bears the stigmata, followed by ten years as a Catholic nun. The Soweto riots and a forbidden relationship point the way forward to secular life, but the death of her father and a traumatic event catapult Michelle back to her Jewish roots in Jerusalem. Later, in St. Louis and Seattle, Michelle discovers the harsh secrets of her childhood. Her healing continues, climaxing years later in India, where she reflects on her eventful life and her journeys, both outward and inward. God in All Worlds is the inspirational story of a woman's journey across four continents in her quest for spiritual fulfilment and emotional healing. Michelle steers the reader from shanty towns in South Africa to the Old City in Jerusalem and from the opulent hotels of Kolkata to the simple asceticism of Varanasi. A soul-searching odyssey and a disarmingly honest chronicle, this is a spiritual memoir unlike any other.Printed Pages: 216. 106489

The Last Hero: A Biography of Subhas Bose
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789325985674; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
History abounds with many heroes. The Indian freedom struggle had its own share of them. Subhas Chandra Bose fired the nation with patriotic fervour, very different in character to the non-violent approach preached by Gandhi. Truly an outsider to the movements of satyagraha and passive resistance that rapidly gained momentum, he made a valiant effort to galvanize the nation into action with evocative slogans such as Freedom is never given, it is taken' . . . 'Tum mujhe khoon do, main tumhe azadi doonga'. JAI HIND India's national greeting ? was the salutation coined by him to arouse nationalistic passion among the Indians. In what was unthinkable then, Bose dared to ally with the Nazis and the Japanese, and raised an indigenous army called Azad Hind Fauj to challenge the military might of the British Empire.Why then has Subhas Chandra Bose been largely marginalized as a footnote in the history of India's independence? Perhaps the mythical legends that continue to shroud both his personal life and political happenstance hold some answers.The Lost Hero a thoroughly researched biography of Subhas Bose delves into the life and times of this great man, with the hope that he is granted a befitting place in the annals of Indian history.Printed Pages: 584. 104979

18729 Mihir Bose
Bollywood: A History
Lotus/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8174366539; Softcover; New; 
Hollywood may define our idea of movies, but it is the city of Bombay on the west coast of India that is now the centre of world cinema. Every year, the Indian film industry produces more than 1,000 feature films; every day, 14 million Indians go to a movie in the country; a billion more people a year buy tickets for Indian movies than for Hollywood ones. The rise of Bombay as the film capital of the world has been both remarkable and amazing. Bollywood movies themselves are a self-contained world with their multiple song and dance routines, intense melodrama, and plots that contain everything from farce to tragedy, but always produce a happy ending. The men and women who created these movies are even more remarkable; and it is this fantastic, rich, diverse story, a veritable Indian fairyland, that Mihir Bose, a native of Bombay, tells with vivid brilliance in the first comprehensive history of this major social and cultural phenomenon.

Sculptures of Ganga-Yamuna Valley
Abhinav Publications/Kaveri Books; New Delhi, India; 817017189X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
"Stylistically Classical Indian Gupta sculpture admitted a common denominator till the end of the sixth and the beginning of the seventh century A.D. This was felt throughout the sub-continent in different degrees, according to the strength of the regional trends. The gradual thinning down or the decline of the Classical Gupta concept was followed by an emphasis on the regional factors until they dominated over the former. The Ganga-Yamuna Valley, the hub of Indian history and culture since the early times, played an important part in the medieval phase. From the point of view of cultural history, especially in the field of art, middle of the eighth century may be considered as the beginning of the medieval phase of Indian sculpture. 108029

18733 Mihir Rakshit
Macroeconomics of Post-reform India
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2009; 0195697065; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
This book and its companion volume Money and Finance in the Indian Economy bring together essays written over the last fifteen years by eminent economist Mihir Rakshit. The essays cover practically all major macroeconomic developments in India in the process of transition from a Plan to a market-oriented economy. These essays focus on the overall behaviour of the economy, that is, the genesis of and lessons from the 1990–91 payments crisis that led to the adoption of a comprehensive reforms programme; the different phases of post-reform macroeconomic development and the series of puzzles surfacing therein; the nature and sustainability of services-led growth; and the analytical-cum-policy issues relating to inflation arising from oil price or other shocks. The author provides a survey of the current state of mainstream macroeconomics and discusses its application to the Indian context. He emphasizes the significance of agriculture, infrastructural bottlenecks, absorption of labour in the unorganized sector, and large-scale financial dualism as particularly important in the Indian context. Using such a framework casts new light on the main drivers of the Indian macroeconomy, underlines its major sectoral interlinkages, and helps draw analytical and policy conclusions that are often sharply at variance with the conventional wisdom or widely held beliefs. 024967

Money and Finance in the Indian Economy
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2009; 0195696980; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
This book and its companion volume Macroeconomics of Post-reform India bring together essays written over the last fifteen years by eminent economist Mihir Rakshit. The essays cover practically all major macroeconomic developments in India in the process of transition from a Plan to a market-oriented economy. The focus of the essays in this volume is on the problems and policy concerns emerging in particular sectors. The issues discussed relate to the transition from a situation of credit constraint to one of excess liquidity; the source of fiscal imbalances and the measures for their correction; economic and policy implications of FCI’s excess food stocks and the rapid build-up of foreign exchange reserves; the pros and cons of foreign institutional investments (FIIs); and the strengths and weaknesses of the banking system under the liberalized regime. The problems and issues addressed in these essays are diverse, and so is their focus and emphasis. However, the unifying factor is their analysis that draws on a macro-theoretic framework appropriate to the Indian economy. 024970

Water: Growing Understanding, Emerging Perspectives
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8125062920; Softcover; New; 
For decades after independence, Indian planning ignored the need for sustainability and equity in water resource development and management. There was just one way forward, that of harnessing the bounty in our rivers and below the ground, and this strategy had almost completely unquestioned acceptance. It was only in the 1990s that serious questions began to be raised on the wisdom of our understanding and approach to rivers. Around the same time, the sustainability of our strategy of groundwater development under the Green Revolution also began to be interrogated. Printed Pages: 576. 110983

Seagull Books; Kolkata, India; 2005; 81-046-196-0; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 14 Cms x 28.5 Cms 
"Dylan has burrowed into our flesh and lodged in our minds . . . his words, images, tunes have been swimming through my head, rising up from the depths at unexpected moments. The electric violin on desolation row. The pill box hat that balances on her head just like a mattress balances on a bottle of wine. Breadcrumb sins . . . the ghost of electricity howling in the bones of her face. The orphan crying like a fire in the sun. Her amaican um and how she did come. The hard rain forever falling. The answer forever blowin’. . ." Chimes of Freedom tells the story of an irascible individual artist in a period of great social upheaval, a mass movement for social change—and the complex, often tortured relationship between the two. Re-establishing Dylan’s sixties’ master works in their historical context, the book sheds new light on both the songs and the era that produced them. Printed Pages: 392. 031330

Ibn Sina Und Die Peripatetische ,,Aussagenlogik"
E.J. Brill; Leiden, The Netherlands; 1989; 9004084878; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
Das Buch geht von dem heute angenommenen Stand der Wissenschaft aus: die Peripatetiker brachten eine Terminuslogik zustande, während die stoische Logik eine Aussagenlogik war. Sie standen feindlich einandern gegenüber. Der Verfasser, mit Hilfe eines Textes Avicennas, wo er die Lehre der hypothetischen Syllogismen behandelt, versucht zu beweisen, dass auch die Peripatetiker eine, von der Terminuslogik nicht in jedem Hinblick losgelöste Aussagenlogik hatten, und diese peripatetische Aussenlogik wurde under dem Namen "hypothetische Syllogismen" in den griechischen Quellen erwähnt. Die zerstreuten Bermerkungen der Griechen über die hypothetischen Syllogismen lassen sich im Lichte des Textes Avicennas in einem neuen Sinn deuten. Die klassischen/griechischen und lateinischen/ Quellen, wenn wir sie richtig deuten, und wenn wir die versammelten Bruchstücke der Lehre richtig zusammenstellen, zeigten uns das ganze, von dem stoischen abweichende System der peripatetischen Aussagenlogik. Man kann aber nicht nur die ganze Theorie rekonstruieren, sondern auch die Geschichte der peripatetischen Aussagenlogik, von Theophrast bis zu unserem Jahrhundert. Printed Pages: 266. 004976

The Adventures of Rama
Mapin Publishing; Ahmedabad, India; 2010; 8189995332; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 19 x 25 Cm 
To rid the world of the evil, ten-headed Ravana, the Hindu god Vishnu appears on earth as a heroic prince, Rama. The devotion of his brother Lakshman, his marriage to the beautiful Sita, and encounters with demons, giants, sages, and holy men form favorite episodes familiar to any Hindu child. Taken from the holy text, the Ramayana, these stories conclude with Rama's efforts to rescue the kidnapped Sita, aided by Hanuman, leader of an army of monkeys. These incidents have been retold and lavishly illustrated using original paintings from a 16th-century Mughal manuscript. About the Author Milo Cleveland Beach was the Director of the Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC. He has written extensively on Indian and Mughal painting and authored numerous exhibition catalogues and articles. He is the author of Rajput Painting at Bundi and Kota, The Grand Mogul and Early Mughal Painting. Additional Information Originally published in 1980 by Freer Gallery of Art, this edition is completely redesigned, and comes with added features.

The Imperial Image: Paintings of the Mughal Court
Mapin Publishing; Ahmedabad, India; 2012; 8189995626; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Books have been treasured for centuries in the Islamic world, as precious objects worthy of royal admiration. his was especially true in Muslim India, where generations of Mughal emperors commissioned and collected volumes of richly illuminated manuscripts and lavishly illustrated folios. hey assembled workshops of the leading artists and calligraphers to produce the books that ?lled their extensive libraries. Today, those works remain a vibrant part of India?s cultural and artistic history in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. In this revised and expanded edition of his popular 1981 book, Dr Milo Beach presents the superb collection of Mughal painting in the Freer Gallery of Art. He adds many of the outstanding works that entered the collection with the opening of the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery in 1987. Together, the Freer and Sackler Galleries, the Smithsonian?s museums of Asian art, have the distinction of being one of the world?s leading repositories of Mughal art. An introductory essay examines the Mughal art of the book and traces the contributions of a succession of rulers in Muslim India. Brief artist biographies and an extensive bibliography complete this updated volume. Printed Pages: 232 with numerous colour illustrations. 037240

Communications and Power: Propaganda and the Press in the Indian National Struggle, 1920-1947
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 1994; 8185618445; Hard Cover; New; New; 
At the end of the First World War, Government of India officials and Indian nationalist politicians began to recognise the need for an organized communications network that could reach out to a large and diverse Indian population. The challenge for Government and nationalists alike was to create an effective propaganda machine that could both disseminate news and, at the same time, elicit the desired political response. Milton Israel’s book describes the role of the press, news services and propaganda agencies in the last stage of the nationalist struggle in India before the departure of the British, emphasizing the media’s participation in the development of a ‘national’ perspective. Within this context, the author examines the significance of the encounter between imperialism and nationalism and the influence one had upon the other in achieving often conflicting objectives. Contents Introduction: politics and the press in a colonial setting; l. The Government of India: images and messages in the defense of authority; 2. The news services: ‘impartial Reuters’ or ‘foreign pipes’; 3. The Congress search for a common voice; 4. The Bombay Chronicle: a case study; 5. The struggle overseas; Conclusion.

Portuguese: A Linguistic Introduction
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2005; 0521805155; First Edition; Paperback; New; 247 x 174 Mm 
This accessible new book provides a comprehensive introduction to the linguistic structure of Portuguese. Clearly organised, it covers the central topics of syntax, phonology, morphology, semantics and pragmatics, and explores the social and historical background of Portuguese, its development and spread in the world, and related sociolinguistic issues such as dialect variation and language planning. It also includes a chapter on Portuguese in Brazil, where approximately 80% of Portuguese speakers live. Assuming very little prior knowledge of linguistic terminology, Portuguese: A Linguistic Introduction is designed to help intermediate and advanced students of Portuguese understand how the language functions at all levels, and to give students of linguistics a useful starting point for work on the structure of Portuguese. Keeping linguistic theory to a minimum, it focuses on presenting the linguistic facts in a clear and lucid way, providing a useful global overview of the Portuguese language and its surrounding issues. • A linguistic overview of the language, taking into account its variation in the various places where it is spoken • Contains a specific chapter on Brazilian Portuguese, which accounts for about 80% of the speakers of the language • Linguistic theory kept to a minimum to facilitate focusing on the facts of the language rather than on theory Contents 1. Portuguese in the world; 2. The sounds of Portuguese; 3. Words; 4. Sentences; 5. Portuguese in time; 6. The expansion of European Portuguese; 7. Brazilian Portuguese; 8. Sociolinguistic issues.

The Calcutta Cookbook: A Treasury of Over 200 Recipes from Pavement to Palace
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 1995; 0140469729; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms Utpal Basu 
The Calcutta Cookbook is much more than a cookery book—it is a culinary chronicle of travellers and traders who built the city that Job Charnock founded. Calcutta 's chronicle began on a hot, wet August afternoon in 1690 when a hungry Charnock climbed off his ship on to the steps of a muddy ghat. The river was Hooghly and the place Sutanati… The story of Calcutta is told by three food lovers—the late gourmet chef and author of Bangla Ranna, Minakshi Das Gupta, and feature writers Bunny Gupta and Jaya Chaliah—who have collected recipes from all over the world. Many of these are family secrets of Calcuttans who have recreated Armenian, Jewish, Arabian, European, Chinese and Tibetan dishes with distinct Calcutta flavour. Through over two hundred tried and tested recipes ranging from the delicious Bengali Chingri Maacher Malai Curry to the biryani and kebabs of Kabul, and the Temperado, Vindaloo and Sorpotel of Goa, Calcutta unfolds as a gourmet’s paradise.

Spline Functions on Triangulations: Encyclopedia of Mathematics and Its Applications 110
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2007; 978052187529; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 160 x 240 Mm 
Spline functions are universally recognized as highly effective tools in approximation theory, computer-aided geometric design, image analysis, and numerical analysis. The theory of univariate splines is well known but this text is the first comprehensive treatment of the analogous bivariate theory. A detailed mathematical treatment of polynomial splines on triangulations is outlined, providing a basis for developing practical methods for using splines in numerous application areas. The detailed treatment of the Bernstein-Bézier representation of polynomials will provide a valuable source for researchers and students in CAGD. Chapters on smooth macro-element spaces will allow engineers and scientists using the FEM method to solve partial differential equations numerically with new tools. Workers in the geosciences will find new tools for approximation and data fitting on the sphere. Ideal as a graduate text in approximation theory, and as a source book for courses in computer-aided geometric design or in finite-element methods. • First book to offer a detailed treatment of bivariate splines • Provides a basis for developing practical methods for using splines in numerous application areas • Up-to-date and comprehensive account, suitable for mathematicians, statisticians, engineers, geoscientists, biologists and computer scientists working in academia or industry Contents Preface; 1.

India: Urban Poverty Report 2009
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2009; 0198060254; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The India: Urban Poverty Report 2009 identifies the problems faced by the poor and focuses on the systemic changes that are needed. It looks at the process of globalization and the development strategy in the country, and asks why the poor exist in urban India and how they are being physically and economically absorbed into the system. It analyses the processes of urbanization, migration, changes in the economic structure, and the pattern of infrastructural investment, highlighting how these impact on the well-being of the poor. The central concerns of this report include: • trends and patterns of migration; • dynamics of urban land and capital market; • marginalization of the poor to the urban periphery; • changes in urban governance; • gender dimensions of urban poverty; • unorganized workforce and the informal sector; • provision of and access to basic services and amenities indicating quality of life; and • the appalling conditions in slums. The essays present both the challenges as well as some of the innovative solutions that are being tried out in different parts of the country. With a focus on the goal of inclusive cities in India, this report will be an important contribution to the re-evaluation of existing policies and programmes to redress urban poverty. 026200

MGNREGA Sameeksha: An Anthology of Research Studies on the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act, 2005 2006-2012
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8125047255; Softcover; New; 
The Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA), the flagship rural employment Scheme of the Government of India, was launched in February 2006. It is perhaps the largest and most ambitious social security and public works programme in the world. Six years after its implementation, the basic principles and high potential of the MGNREGA are well established. The fact that about one-fourth (25 per cent) of all rural households in the country participate in the programme every year, is testimony to its resounding popularity. Since its inception, around Rs 110,000 crore has gone directly as wage payment to rural households, and 1,200 core person-days of employment have been generated. MGNREGA with its demand-driven design, rights-based structure and unprecedented scale has attracted the attention of several scholars, researchers, social activists, and policymakers and analysts around the world. This anthology is a synthesis of over a hundred studies on MGNREGA, its impact and implementation. It provides a readable summary of these studies and popularly expressed concerns. It also seeks to identify unanswered questions on both the impact and potential of MGNREGA that will require further research. The report is objective in identifying both the positive impact of the Scheme as well as the constraints that limit MGNREGA’s effective implementation.Printed Pages: 128. 101819

Middle-Class Moralities: Everyday Struggle Over Belonging and Prestige in India
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8125037896; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
New middle-classes present themselves as the epitome of modernity and progress. Both in their role as social models and culture-brokers, they seem to promote a heightened consciousness of cultural difference and nationalism. Middle-Class Moralities examines how the new middle classes of India create identities, practices and politics of the everyday in a dialogue that involves other social categories and an imaginary West. Drawing upon ethnographic and interview material, this book studies family relations, leisure, food, housing and religious practices of these emerging and enterprising social classes. Defining the middle classes is a political and embodied process that people negotiate by making instrumental use of (or domesticating) the idea of the West. A closer and analytical look at the consumption-driven, status-obsessed middle classes reveals their deeper struggles that seek to engage such cultural concepts as dharma, purity, and auspiciousness. The fieldwork for this study was conducted mainly in the city of Hyderabad among its upwardly mobile people who have identified themselves as “Hindus.” The Indian situation, argues the author, is comparable to that of the urban middle classes elsewhere, especially those of the traditionally hierarchical Asian societies. The dilemmas of these classes in a fast-globalizing India have seldom been given the detailed attention offered in these pages. Printed Pages: 236. 030720

Wall Paintings of Rajasthan
National Museum; New Delhi, India; 2004; 818583220X; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 30 Cms x 40 Cms 
The book is divided into four chapters. In the first chapter, an attempt has been made to put the paintings in their setting. The way geography influenced the pattern of early settlements and helped to evolve a very sturdy and hardworking character of the people of this region has been discussed at the outset. The historical perspective which has determined the cultural mores of Rajasthan, beginning with the birth of the Rajput dynasties, their dominance, contact with the Mughals and the Marathas has been discussed. The extent to which religious movements and beliefs of the time influenced culture has also been brought out. The economic system which resulted in the patronage of art through the rulers, the aristocracy, the big religious mathas and later on the trading and banking families and the powerful community of the Jains has been critically evaluated and discussed. In the second chapter, the important centres of wall paintings found in the Rajput States of Mewar, Marwar, Bikaner, Jaisalmer, Amber, Bundi, and Kotah, and in the feudatory estates of these States have also been discovered and discussed. The technique of preparing the walls, the quality and character of the drawings, the methods and varieties of colour schemes emploted have been discussed in detail. An analysis of the presentation of the way space, movement, balance, expression, tension and iconography have been portrayed has been done in great depth in the third chapter. The stylistic influences on the art of Rajasthani wall paintings right from the tradition of Ajanta, the Jain School of Painting, the Deccani style and the Malwa painting have been traced and analysed. The interaction with the Mughals enriched both the Mughal ateliers in their artistic endeavours and further encouraged the patronage of painting by the Rajasthani courts and also brought a greater naturalism to the Rajasthani tradition of painting. A comparison of the contemporary Pahadi and Bundelkhandi Schools has also been discussed. The similarity and interaction between the Rajasthani miniature tradition and the style of wall painting has been analysed. These interactions ultimately produced a unique art celebrating life in all its facets of glory, joy, love and the cultural ethos of basically a warrior community which is distinct and distinguished in itself and makes a powerful statement in Indian art. The personalities of the patrons and the names of artists whose existence is supported by reliable documentary evidence has been discussed in the last chapter. The book has taken several years of research and uses for the first time hitherto unpublished archival material to date the paintings in a definitive fashion. The book does not limit itself to the chronological and thematic content of Rajasthani painting but gives great emphasis to its technical and aesthetic aspects. The stength of the book lies in giving the tradition of wall paintings its due place in the great artistic heritage of India. Printed Pages: 447 with numerous colour illustrations. 021868

18796 Mira Yuval-Davis and Pnina Werbner (eds)
Women, Citizenship and Difference
Zubaan; New Delhi, India; 8189013335; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book makes an important contribution towards an understanding of citizenship as mediated by other collective, historically determined identities: of gender, ethnicity, class and national status. It brings together a group of prominent inetrenational scholars from moral philosophy, law, political science and sociology to offer a major reconceptualization of the idea of citizenship. The contributors demonstrate how the growing ambivalence of State sovereignty in the face of multinational capitalism and the absence of political accountability structures are complicit in the definitions of gendered citizenship. Against these, women's communal mobilization and politcal activisms are considered in terms of their power effects and political potentialities. Contents Notes on Contributors Preface 1. Introduction: Women and the New Discourse of Citizenship Part One Dialogical Citizenships 2. Citizenship Revisited 3. Right-Wing 'Feminism': a Challenge to Feminism as an Emancipatory Movement 4.

18797 Miranda Shaw
Passionate Enlightenment: Women in Tantric Buddhism
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8121508207; Reprint; Hard Cover; New; New; 14 Cms x 23 Cms 
The crowning cultural achievement of medieval India, Tantric Buddhism is known in the West primarily for the sexual practices of its adherents, who strive to transform erotic passion into spiritual ecstasy. Historians of religion have long held that the enlightenment thus attempted was for men only, and that women in the movement were at best marginal and subordinate and at worst degraded and exploited. Miranda Shaw argues to the contrary, presenting extensive new evidence of the outspoken and independent female founders of the Tantric movement and their creative role in shaping its distinctive vision of gender relations and sacred sexuality. Anyone who reads a Tantric text or enters a Tantric temple immediately encounters a pantheon of female Buddhas and a host of female enlighteners known as "dakinis," who dance and leap in joyous poses that communicate a sense of mastery and spiritual power. This striking female imagery is fully compatible with Shaw's findings. Drawing on interviews and archival research conducted during two years of fieldwork in India and Nepal, including more than forty previously unnoticed works by women of the Pala period (eighth through twelfth centuries CE), she substantially reinterprets the history of Tantric Buddhism during its first four centuries. In her view, the Tantric theory of this period promotes an ideal of cooperative, mutually liberative relationships between women and men while encouraging a sense of reliance on women as a source of spiritual insight and power.
