Issues in Indian Museum Education: National Perspectives, International Trends
Agam Kala Prakashan; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8173201293; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 19 x 25 Cm 
On 12 th -13 th November 2007, museum professionals assembled in National Museum Institute to participate in a conference on “Issues in Indian Museum Education: National Perspectives, International Trends’. The conference which brought together individuals from various museums and cultural institutions aimed at bringing to light the initiatives taken in the field of Museum Education in India by the Indian Scholars and also to examine the American Museum Education practices. This conference was collaborative effort between the National Museum Institute and United States Educational Foundation in India. In the History of Indian Museums spanning over almost two hundred years, museum education has been an important part of the museums. Inspite of some good land breaking examples of museum education in Indian Museums, there has been no effort to deliberate upon the subject in an academic exchange manner through a seminar. Thus there is lack of a baseline and a manual for the Indian Museums Education System. The effort of this conference has been to create useful reference material with the Indian Museum Education Case studies along with some examples from the American museums for the students and scholars alike. The deliberations of the conference were around the status of museum education in India and the future course of museum education work. The conference sessions were designed to provide an opportunity for the museum professionals to discuss issues pertaining to museum education and education policy; museum education and schools; museum education and outreach; museum education and communication; museum education and social change; museum education and varied target audience. The focus, through discussions and questions, was on “where have we been; where are we going?” Few of the key questions raised by this conference were ‘if museum visits are compulsory for students in India, why do they not come back as independent return visitors?’; ‘How to convey the educational potential of museums to all categories of visitors?’; ‘does the museum education system in Indian museums match with the education policy of India? ‘Can Museum Education be a tool for social Change?’ This publication summarizes the presentations of various speakers in the form of paper submissions authored by the invited speakers to each session of the conference. The proceedings are divided into two broad parts covering the case studies from various Indian museums and the experiences from the museums from United States of America. Among the Indian participants are noted names of the field as Dr. Saroj Ghose, Dr. Shobita Punja, Prof. K. K. Basa, Dr. S. M. Nair, Dr. Asif Naqvi, Renu Jathar, and Rama Lakshmi. The international perspective was elucidated by the American participants such as Gretchen Jennings, Alicia Stevens, Tim Groove, Dr. Ray Rist and Roberta Altman. Articles by Dr. Saroj Ghose, Dr. Premlata Puri and Prof. K. K. Basa present an overview of the approach to Museum education in India. These papers also present the audience with potential possibilities in museum education through case studies and examples. Dr. Saroj Ghose in his article ‘Immersive Visualization in Story-Telling Museums: A new tool for museum education’ demonstrates the importance of hands-on exhibits in history museums. The paper stresses that use of technology has the capacity to change the image and conventional nature of the history, art and archaeology museums in India and enliven these museums. The paper, ‘Museum “Education”- “Why” and “How” with focus on diversity of Indian Cultural Traditions’ by Dr. Premlata Puri put forwards creative methodologies for an integrated approach to museum education for various categories of museum visitors. The article by Prof. K. K. Basa is on ‘Getting Educated: Indira Gandhi Rashtriya Manav Sangrahalaya as a Facilitator’. The paper explores the role of museums as a facilitator of education in the context of Indian museums. Various museum education programmes of Indira Gandhi Rashtriya Manav Sanghralaya’, Bhopal are discussed in the paper as examples. In his paper on ‘Indian Museum Education’ Dr. S. M. Nair reviews the current status of educational programmes in Indian museums and examines the reasons for lack of initiatives in the field of museum education in India. A comparison has been attempted between the educational programmes of science & natural history museums and the art & archaeology museums in India. Dr. Shobita Punja in her article ‘Communication and Outreach’ highlights the key issue of lack of a policy on museum education in India. The paper discusses the potential of museums as high quality learning resources. The paper illustrates the various programmes undertaken in the area of museum education by INTACH, Center for Cultural Education Resource and Training(CCERT) and the British Council in India. Renu Jathar’s article on ‘Educational Activities of The Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya(CSMVS)’ brings forth the educational activities of CSMVS, formerly known as the Prince of Wales Museum of Western India. It also highlights the policy of CSMVS to view museum education as an effective medium for outreach activities aimed at enlarging the visitor base of a museum. The paper, ‘Museum’s Role – To educate or to bring about a social change’ by Rama Lakshmi questions the assigned role of museums in the sphere of education. The paper argues that the role of a museum is of a platform, a story board for ideas, interpretations and narratives. Dr. Asif Naqvi in his paper ‘Educational Role of Museums in India’ reviews the historical development of museums in India and their educational role. The paper emphasizes that museums in India should turn into forums of non-formal education. The paper by Dr. Carol Ann Reed on ‘Marginalized Youth and Museums; Exploring Cross-cultural Linkages at Sanskriti Kendra’, highlights the perception if museums as elitist organizations not accessible to all sections of society. The paper presents the results of a workshop done by the author to engage young children from an orphanage in the museum programme at the Sanskriti Kendra. The paper demonstrates the relevance of museums for all sections of society including the poor and marginalized. Alicia Stevens writes on ‘International Partnerships for Museum Education’. The paper discusses the need and methodology for successful international collaboration through the examples from American Museum of Natural History. The paper ‘Moving Museums towards Performance Measurement’ by Dr. Ray Rist elucidates on the need, rationale and benefits for the evaluation of performance outcomes. The paper talks about the techniques for defining and identifying effectiveness in museum practice. Tim Groove in his paper ‘Intellectual Access to Museum Education’ deliberates on the efforts of museum educators across the United States of America to increase intellectual access to museum exhibition by addressing various learning styles of visitors. The paper, ‘An Introduction and Discussion Of The Web Site Exhibit Files’ by Gretchen Jennings discusses the website, ‘Exhibit Files’ its goals and uses in the field of museums. Roberta Altman in her paper, ‘The Arts As Catalyst Across Contexts: Linking Classrooms, Community, and Museums’ explains a museum education project done by the author with a group of school students in collaboration with American Museum of Natural History. The paper highlights the use of museums for outreach educational programmes. The seminar papers reveal the diverse range and nature of aspects of museum education discussed amongst scholars. This seminar was a small and focused effort to deliberate on the issues of museum education in India. It initiated a cross cultural dialogue amongst museum professionals in India and the United States. The proceedings are an endeavor to bring forth the discussions and deliberations of the seminar to students and scholars. Printed Pages: 179 with numerous colour illustrations. 109939

18809 Marc Bloch
The Historian's Craft
Aakar Books; New Delhi, India; 9789350024669; Softcover; New; 
The work explores the craft of the historian from a number of different angles and discusses what constitutes history and how it should be configured and created in literary form by the historian. The scope of the work is broad across space and time: in one chapter, for instance, he cites a number of examples of erroneous history-writing and forgeries, citing sources as wide-ranging as the Commentaries of Julius Caesar and the Protocols of the Elders of Zion. His approach is one that is configured not for those who are necessarily professional historians themselves (members of what he referred to as 'the guild') but instead for all interested readers and non-specialists. Bloch also expressed the viewpoint that the craft of the historian should not be a judgemental one-that the historian should attempt to explain and describe rather than evaluate in normative terms. At one stage in the work, for instance, Bloch observes that "the mania for making judgements" is a "satanic enemy of true history." Marc Bloch was a mediaeval historian, University Professor and French Army officer. Bloch was a founder of the Annales School, best known for his pioneering studies French Rural History and Feudal Society and his posthumously-published unfinished meditation on the writing of history, The Historian's Craft. He was captured and shot by Gestapo during the German occupation of France for his work in the French Resistance. Printed Pages: 220. 111686

18813 Marc Galanter, M.D.
Spirituality and the Healthy Mind: Science, Therapy, and the Need for Personal Meaning
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0195176693; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16.5 x 25 Cm 
Spirituality has emerged as a prominent theme in contemporary culture. It is seen in issues as diverse as Eastern philosophies and religious awakenings; its psychological impact is apparent in alternative medicine, Alcoholics Anonymous, and meditation. In their own ways, each of these has helped people get relief from the problems psychiatrists often treat. But the mental health profession has generally ignored these isues, focusing on specific target symptoms, from anxiety to heavy drinking. Their efforts rely increasingy on medications and brief therapies as they succumb to the chilling influence of managed care. This raises an important question: Can the spiritual and professional, two perspectives that seem different, be reconciled? This book is designed to provide an answer to this question. It draws on recent findings in psychology, neuroscience, and innovative therapies to understand how people in America and worldwide express their spiritual needs. It then shows how the mentally ill, substance abusers, and people troubled by a sense that something is missing in their lives can be helped by developing a sense of personal meaning, while still benefitting from contemporary therapy and medications. Finally, it examines shortcomings in both the biomedical and spiritually-oriented approaches. The book draws on clinical experience and recent research studies, including the author's work over thirty years. This is enhanced by case studies drawn from patients, mental health professionals, the lay public, and even cult members. All this is brought together to create a vivid understanding of how mental health treatment can be made more effective by giving meaning to people's lives. Printed Pages: 320. 015216

God Vs. The Gavel: Religion and the Rule of Law
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0521853044; First Paperback Edition; Paperback; New; 150 x 230 Mm 
God vs. the Gavel challenges the pervasive assumption that all religious conduct deserves constitutional protection. While religious conduct provides many benefits to society, it is not always benign. The thesis of the book is that anyone who harms another person should be governed by the laws that govern everyone else - and truth be told, religion is capable of great harm. This may not sound like a radical proposition, but it has been under assault since the 1960s. The majority of academics and many religious organisations would construct a fortress around religious conduct that would make it extremely difficult to prosecute child abuse by clergy, medical neglect of children by faith-healers, and other socially unacceptable behaviours. This book intends to change the course of the public debate over religion by bringing to the public’s attention the tactics of religious entities to avoid the law and therefore harm others. • Timely and topical in light of recent revelations concerning the clergy • Eye-opening and in parts, shocking • An interesting insight into American law and religion Contents Part I. Why the Law Must Govern Religious Entities: 1. The problem; 2. Children; 3. Marriage; 4. Schools; 5. Property rights and taxes; 6. The military and the prisons; 7. Discrimination; Part II. The History and Doctrine Behind the Rule that Subjects Religious Entities to Duly Enacted Laws; 8. Boerne V. Flores: the case that fully restored the rule of law for religious entities; 9. The decline of the special treatment of religious entities and the rise of the no-harm rule; 10. The path to the public good; Acknowledgments; Index. Printed Pages: 408. 014380

Perspectives in Ecological Theory and Integrated Pest Management
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2007; 97801521822138; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 175 x 255 Mm 
Since the early days of integrated pest management a sound ecological foundation has been considered essential for the development of effective systems. From time to time, there have been attempts to evaluate the ways in which ecological theory is exploited in pest control, and to review the lessons that ecologists learn from pest management. In the last 20 years there have been many developments within the contribution of ecological theory to integrated pest management. This book captures some of the new themes in both pest management and ecology that have emerged and provides an updated assessment of the role that basic ecology plays in the development of rational and sustainable pest management practices. Major themes are examined, assessing the significance and potential impact of recent technological and conceptual developments for the future of integrated pest management. • Details the recent advances in ecology and integrated pest management • Assesses the ecological impacts of agricultural practices on biodiversity • Looks to future and the potential impact of recent technological and conceptual developments Contents Overview: ecology and IPM Marcos Kogan and Paul C.

A Dictionary of Hinduism. Its Mythology, Folklore and Development 1500 BC-AD 1500
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8121510740; First Indian Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 19 Cms x 25 Cms 
This encyclopaedic dictionary has proved indispensable for all those interested in Hinduism, whether specialist, student or general reader. The dictionary comprises about 2,500 romanised Sanskrit subject-headings with their English equivalents, explanations and etymology. An index of English subjects with Sanskrit equivalents, and an extensive bibliography are appended. The dictionary indexes and describes the mythology, folklore, religion, philosophy, literature and history of Hinduism over a period of more than two and a half millennia, thus dispelling many commonly held misguided beliefs. It reveals much of the real significance of Hinduism, which many would say shows an unsurpassed continuity and genius for analysis and synthesis. Initially an attempt to come to terms with man’s physical environment and subsequently the mysterious world beyond it, Hinduism recognised energy to be the ultimate source of manifestation, as its horizon expanded. This comprehensive work provides an invaluable survey of the long vista of Hinduism. Printed Pages: 392. 016348

Sketches from Memory: Vol. II: Remembering Gandhi
Promilla & Co., Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8185002967; First Edition; Paperback; New; 5.75 x 8.75 Inches 
Written at the suggestion of a friend, this book chronicles a tale in space and time, a journey from one culture to another entirely different. After the introductory sections dealing with the author's early life, the influences that were at work, and the interests she developed, the focus shifts to people met in the course of unusually wide travels. They were so memorable that they are given centre stage. The author arrived in India in 1946 and the book is partially autobiographical for it does not include a large part of her life- her marriage to Nripendranath Chatterjee, originally a Professor of English, her experiences in a university in UP where there were caste hostels, and her subsequent involvement in district and village life in Bengal after her husband became one of the first emergency recruits to the newly formed IAS. They were crowded years in which she raised a family and acquired a working knowledge of two languages. So the journey to Gandhi was prepared by what the author had already learnt about India through the years which she has not recorded lest the book become too long. She eventually met a number of senior people who in various ways had a link to Gandhi, or at least, to the Gandhian era. She was well on her way in her journey to Gandhi about whom she has written six books. Printed pages: 76. 029248

Govindadeva: A Dialogue in Stone
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 1996; 8185503036; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 23 x 29 Cm 
Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts al-Centre-for-the-Arts" Title="The-Indira-Gandhi-National-Centre-for-the-Arts">The Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts -gandhi">Indira Gandhi tone temple of Govindadeva, built in the sixteenth century, stands on a hill in the midst of the holy city of Vrindaban. It is the largest temple ever built to have been designed as a single structure, and immediately impresses a visitor with the strength of its massive exterior and the flying, vaulted spaces of its interior. It could, in fact, be called a "Mughal temple", for it was built with Akbar's patronage by Mana Simha, one of the highest Mughal officials, and its red sandstone construction stamped it with the hallmark of Mughal imperial style. But it was designed to serve the purposes of the new devotional Vaisnavism being spread by the followers of Caitanya Mahaprabhu. This volume for the first time presents a detailed study of Govindadeva's design and iconography, richly illustrated with photographs and drawings. Other chapters discuss the History of its construction and desecration under Aurangzeb, and describe the temples built along the way for the image of Sri Govindadeva when he traveled to his present home in Jaipur. Documentation from manuscript archives brings alive the lineage of priests serving the temple, and the ritual life of the temple is reconstructed from manuscript sources. The authors are noted Indian, American, and European scholars. The editor, Margaret H. Case, lives in Vrindaban and Lawrenceville, New Jersey; she has edited a number of volumes, most recently Heinrich Zimmer : Coming into His Own (Princeton : Princeton University Press, 1994). The photographer, Robyn Beeche, lives in Vrindaban and is photographing the cultural life of Vraja. She has published her photographs in Arts and Crafts of India by Nicholas Barnard (London : Conran Octopus, 1993). Certain locales have evolved as great cultural centres where fusions take place. The priest and the king, the saint and the householder were magnetically pulled to these centres. In turn socio-political, cultural and artistic movements radiated from them. Vrindaban in the North and Tanjavur in the South are two such centres. The Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts in one of its programmes called the Kshetra Sampada has been investigating the dynamics of the centripetal and centrifugal forces of the two regions especially as reflected in architecture, literature, poetry, music and the crafts both in the historical past and in the living traditions. Govindadeva : A Dialogue in Stone is the second in the series of publications relating to the Vraja region conducted jointly with the Sri Caitanya Prema Samsthan, Vrindaban. The results of other aspects are at various stages of publication, viz. (i) Annotated Multi-lingual Bibliography on Vraja, (ii) Evening Blossoms : the Temple Tradition of Sanjhi in Vrindaban, and (iii) an edited and translated edition of Bhaktirasamrta Sindhu. Incorporating the papers presented at a conference held in 1991, the present study, Govindadeva : A Dialogue in Stone, brings into focus the multi-faceted and multi-layered personality of Vraja through the great Temple known as Govindadeva of the Mughal period. Contributors to the volume are Dr. Kapila Vatsyayan, Acharya Shrivatsa Goswami, Dr. George Michell, Dr. Nalini Thakur, Dr. John Burton-Page, Prof. Irfan Habib, Prof. R. Nath, Dr. Monika Horstmann, Shri Copal Narayan Bahura, Dr. Catherine Asher, Dr. Asimakrishna Dasa and Dr. Chandramani Singh. The volume brings into focus some of the little-known historical and cultural aspects of the Govindadeva Temple. Printed Pages: 306. 100193

Health Policy in Britain's Model Colony: Ceylon (1900-1948)
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2005; 8125027599; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Was Western medicine a positive benefit of colonialism or one of its agents of oppression? This question has prompted a vigorous historical and political debate and is explored here in the context of the 'model' British colony of Ceylon. In this study, Margaret Jones emphasises the need for both a broad perspective and a more complex analysis. Colonial medicine is critiqued not merelyu in the political and economic context of imperialism but also against the background of human needs and rights. Her research is underscored by a detailed analysis of public health measures and services in Ceylon. One of its key findings is the accommodation achieved between Western and indigenous medicine. Throughout this work, Jones provides nuanced readings of the categories of colonised and coloniser, as well as the concept of colonial medicine. Health Policy in Britain's Model Colony provides an understanding of historical trends while simultaneously avoiding generalisations that subsume events and actions. Written in a compelling and lucid style, it is a path-breaking contribution to the history of medicine. Printed Pages: 326. 031661

In the past human development information depended heavily on western oriented concepts foisted on Indian academia. However, over the past three decades, there has been an accelerated acumen to consciously emphasize culture-specific conceptualizations. This book bridges the general concepts in psychology, sociology and, to some extent, anthropology, to focus on the culture-specific development of the Indian. Printed Pages: 392. 028117

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8121510872; First Indian Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 19 Cms x 25 Cms 
Indian art is becoming increasingly popular in the West, but it cannot be appreciated fully without some knowledge of the religious and philosophical background. Margaret Stutley covers all aspects of Hindu iconography, and explains that its roots lie far back in the style of prehistoric art which has remained part of a living tradition for 7,000 years and which resembles the folk murals of many Indian houses today. The dictionary demonstrates the rich profusion of cults, divinities, symbols, sects, and philosophical views encompassed by the Hindu religious tradition. It shows how Hinduism is a synthesis of three, originally separate, religious traditions: the Dravidian (from before the third millennium), the Aryan, and the aboriginal. It makes clear that every part of an icon has some symbolic significance: the material used, the height and shape of the plinths, the type of sculptural relief, the size and position of the figure or figures, the garments, headdress, ornaments, colours, emblems, attributes and weapons, as well as any accompanying minor deities, associated animals, birds or plants.

Hindu Deities: A Mythological Dictionary with Illustrations
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2006; 812151164X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 19 Cms x 25 Cms 
Hinduism is the term now used to summarize the religious aspirations of the majority of Indians. It includes a variety of highly intellectual, metaphysical and philosophical systems, as well as the naïve demonology and magico-religious beliefs of the masses. Hinduism is also a synthesis of three, originally separate religious traditions: the Dravidian, the Aryan and the aboriginal. Although many Westerners regard Hinduism as polytheistic, this view does not take into consideration the sophisticated basis of the tradition as seen in the ancient Rgveda where a transcendental Oneness is perceived that manifests Itself only partially in this world to "create" apparent forces which appear to human beings as separate deities, thus there are as many gods as there are aspects of creation. Many deities are depicted with a multiplicity of arms, heads, and emblems, so distinguishing them from the ordinary mortals as well as pointing to the immense potentiality of the Divine that is forever beyond the comprehension of human beings.

18877 Margaret Wilson; Edited By Ralph Crane
Daughters of India
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0195685865; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Daughters of India is the third novel to appear after Charles Pearce’s Love Besieged (2003) and Maud Diver’s Lilamani (2004), as part of OUP India’s efforts to publish lesser-known Raj fiction. Margaret Wilson’s Daughters of India, first published in 1928, explores the relationship between the two main American characters, Davida Baillie, a missionary teacher (and thinly-veiled portrait of Wilson herself), and John Ramsey, her superior in the mission in Aiyanianwala, their work with the Christian and Muslim communities from the Flowery Basti, and the breaking up of a kidnapping ring in the nearby village of Pir Khanwala. The novel is of particular interest to the postcolonial reader because it offers a broader perspective on the sociology of India in the early twentieth century than can be found in most Anglo–Indian (Raj) missionary novels of the time. Moreover, as an American and a missionary, Wilson was located on the margins of the Anglo–Indian society, a position which is reflected in the fresh perspective she offers on the imperial experience. This new edition of Wilson’s Daughters of India includes a detailed introduction, a chronology of Margaret Wilson, a map, and extensive explanatory notes which provide the reader with a useful critical commentary to the novel. 019689

Diverting the Flow: Gender Equity and Water in South Asia
Zubaan/Atlantic Publishers & Distributors Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 9789381017203; Hardcover; New; New; 
Across the South Asian region, water determines livelihoods and in some cases even survival. However, water also creates exclusions. Access to water, and its social organization, are intimately tied up with power relations. This book provides an overview of gender, equity and water issues relevant to South Asia. The essays empirically illustrate and theoretically argue how gender intersects with other axes of social differences such as class, caste, ethnicity, age and religion to shape water access, use and management practices. Divided into six thematic sections, each of which starts with an introduction of relevant concepts, debates and theories, the book looks at laws and rights, policies, technologies and intervention strategies. In all, the book clearly shows how understanding, and changing the use, distribution and management of water is conditional upon understanding and accommodating gender relations.

Traces of India: Photography, Architecture and the Politics of Representation 1850-1900
Mapin Publishing; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8188204145; Hardcover; New; New; 
Traces of India investigates the roles played by photographs of Indian architecture from the late 18th century. The inquiry stretches from their pre-history to their migration into book illustrations, calendar art and religious imagery. Beyond the apparent purposes of these images as picturesque views, records of an architectural past, political memorials, travel mementos, textbook vignettes, deeper considerations influenced the way their makers worked, selecting, framing, composing, and populating their representations of these monuments. These images remain enduring records of minds as well as monuments. This book is an investigation of that deeper visual culture, showing us how 'simple' images of buildings are in fact complex artifacts that reveal the ways their makers think.Tweleve essays from renowned scholars working in several disciplines show how photpgraphs of architecture reveal the inescapable ways in which the practice of image making is aligned with different aspects.

18896 Maria Montessori
The Secret of Childhood
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8125038272; Softcover; New; 
Maria Montessori was convinced, from a lifetime of scientific observation, that there are laws of growth in the character and disposition of the child as marked as those in its physical life; that adults generally fail to appreciate these laws and force their own ideas on it. This results in the suppression of the child's deepest drives and its mind is thrown into confusion. This often manifests itself in naughtiness, hysterical crying and sulking. A childhood so full of repression results in an adulthood full of complexes. Dr Montessori's main thesis in this book is, in effect, 'Find the secret of childhood'. It truly becomes the 'Father of Man' and achieves a superior, saner psychological development. Maria Montessori's revolutionary method of education was implemented long ago. Today, institutions practising her method still exist in all parts of the world. This book reaches out to a far wider readership, in fact to all those who care for the young and their development into well-adjusted adults.Printed Pages: 200. 101837
