The Legacy of Caraka
Universities Press; Hyderabad, India; 2003; 8173716676; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 145 x 220 Mm 
Caraka, the master physician, is believed to have lived in the first century AD. The Samhita– composed by him forms the bedrock of ayurvedic practice today. His contribution to India’s cultural inheritance was profound. Caraka Samhita– was, in fact, a revision of an older text Agnivesa– Tantra, which was written several centuries before Caraka’s time. Caraka’s revision became so popular that it was translated into Tibetan, Arabic, English and many Indian languages. The Legacy of Caraka retells the Samhita– in a new format. Instead of adhering to the sequence of the Stha–nas in the original, the author has retold the Samhita– through thematically structured chapters, in contemporary idiom. The retelling has involved some degree of restructuring and condensation but has ensured that whatever is stated can be traced back to the original. In a detailed introduction, the author has commented on specific aspects of Caraka’s philosophy, concepts and practice, as seen from the point of view of modern medicine. This book will be of special interest to students of a–yurveda, medicine and other sciences, and those interested in the history of science in India. Printed Pages: 634. 030140

19004 M.S. Valiathan
The Legacy of Vagbhata
Universities Press; Hyderabad, India; 2009; 8173716684; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 145 x 220 Mm 
Vagbhata completes the “Great Three” (Brhatrayi) of Ayurveda, with his predecessors, Caraka and Susruta. His identity and period are controversial but a major section of the scholarly community believes that he was a native of Sindh, who lived in the sixth century and write Astangahrdayam and Astangasngraha. The two texts frankly acknowledge the authority of Samhitas of Caraka and Susruta and closely follow in the footsteps of the earlier masters. The Legacy of Vagbhata is based on a study of Astangahrdayam and employs a thematic approach with the plentiful use of tables. As in the earlier volumes on Caraka and Susruta, great care has been taken in this volume on Vagbhata to maintain fidelity to the original text while ensuring easy readability for the students of Ayurveda, medicine and the sciences.

19018 M.T. Vasudevan Nair (Author) & N. Gopalkrishnan (Tr.)
Varanasi
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8125051783; Softcover; New; 
Women of character and strength, reveal his failings, one by one. And, Sudhakaran runs; from village to town, from town to city and city to city. The city now is Varanasi. This ancient city reminds him of all that it stands for—dharma, lust and death—and that there is no place where one can hide one’s mistakes. Of all places one cannot hide in Varanasi, where memories hold the city together; and, where Kalabhairavan, astride his fierce dog, punishes everyone before salvation. Varanasi, in his trademark austere writing style, is Jnanpith laureate M. T. Vasudevan Nair’s latest novel. Non-linear and set through the protagonist’s reminiscences, this novel is MT’s experiment in style. The narrative is in the unusual ‘alternating person view’, where the narrator smoothly shifts between the first, second and third person. Complemented by a steady stream of paradoxes and allusions, legends and parallel realities, this novel makes for an engaging read.Printed Pages: 200. 101887

19020 M.T. Vasudevan Nair; Translated from Malayalam By Gita Krishnankutty
Naalukettu: The House Around the Courtyard
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0195685962; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Naalukettu (1958) is the story of a young boy, Appunni, set in a joint family (a tharavad) of the Nair caste in the author's native village, Kudallur. Growing up without a father and away from the prestige and protection of the matrilineal home to which he belongs, Appunni spends his childhood in extreme social misery. Fascinated by accounts of the grand 'naalukettu tharavad' of which he should have been a part, Appunni visits the house only to be rejected by the head of the household. With vengeance boiling in his heart and the pain of disappointed love a lingering ache, Appunni claws his way up in life to finally buy the symbol of his youthful aspiration and anguish: the naalukettu tharavad of his ancestors. But victory-both financial and emotional-turns to ashes. Enemies are not worth conquering; his father?s murderer turns out to be the only sympathetic adult in his lonely teenage, and Appunni eventually returns the favour. Naalukettu sensitively captures the traumas and psychological graph of Appunni, caught as he is in the throes of a transitional period in Malabar, a phase marked by the gradual disintegration of the feudal structures of the matrilineal joint family system and the rise of the Nair?s sense of personal identity. The novel, a fascinating read, and the perceptive introduction by the translator herself, will appeal to students and scholars of regional Indian literature in translation, comparative literature, sociology and cultural studies, as well as general readers. The first novel of a writer who began publishing at 14, and who took charge of Malayalam literary fiction nearly half a century ago, Naalukettu (1958) is woven around both real-life legends of Kudallur village and M.T. Vasudevan Nair's personal history. Currently in its eighteenth reprint, the Malayalam original has sold half a million copies and has been translated into fourteen languages. 019728

Waqt Ki Mang-Narendra Modi
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789325985667; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
The Man of the Moment: Narendra Modi The Man of the Moment: Narendra Modi unfolds the rollercoaster life and the evolution of a consummate politician who has enlarged the contours of politics in India. Narendra Modi is poised to evolve as the ultimate game-change of Indian politics. His mesmeric hold over Gujarats masses has translated into three consecutive victories in the state assembly elections. Unravel the enigma of Modi - his convictions and motivations, the secret of his amazing stamina, and his propensity to remain unfazed in the face of criticism. Accused of being communal, castigated for engineering the 2002 Gujarat riots and maligned for being a polarizing figure; Modi counterbalances these negatives with his Gujarat model of governance, ability to attract both foreign and Indian investment, and his personal integrity. Indeed, his connect with the youth makes him the strongest challenger to the Congress monopoly in India. Savour the fascinating journey of Modi from an ordinary RSS pracharak to Gujarats longest serving chief minister and now, to a larger role on the national stage as Chairman of BJPs Election Committee for the 2014 general elections... And if several opinion polls and Modis popularity in the social media are anything to go by, as the future prime minister of India! Strong Man of Gujarat to Game-Changer of the Indian political scene -June 2013 has seen the catapulting rise of the man who started out as a humble pracharak of the RSS and a foot soldier of the BJP. While the public at large was still debating whether to join the camp of Modi-takers or Modi-haters, and the BJP itself was arguably acting out the theatre of the absurd, the Gujarati colossus has seized the moment and positioned himself as the dynamo who the youth see as a possible messiah - someone who can deliver the country from the deep rot of stagnation and corruption and give the nation governance and not just political government.Printed Pages: 456. 104980

19026 M.V. Krishna Rao
Studies in Kautilya
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1979; 812150242X; Third Revised Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
Dr. M.V. Krishna Rao's Studies in Kautilya is an objective and thorough examination of Kautilya's Arthasastra from the standpoint of his own age and society. Kautilya and Aristotle are found to have many identical views, which are opposed to Machiavelli's. Kautilya abhorred petty principalities and advocated a strong empire based on righteousness. The emergence of the Mauryan Empire, which comprises practically the whole of the Indian sub-continent, attests to the genius of Kautilya as a political theorist and practical statesman. Strict economy of expression, adherence to discussion and judicious selection of topics are the factors which bring into bold relief the various interesting aspects of the Arthasastra in a book of this small size.

Ethics for Our Times: Essays in Gandhian Perspective
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2011; 0198073860; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
This book analyses the relevance of Gandhian thought in negotiating with contemporary dilemmas. Critically probing into conventional notions of ‘good’ and ‘bad’, it presents a comprehensive analysis of ethics as a conceptual framework and guide to the problems of rapidly globalizing societies. Nadkarni explores issues related to economic development, environment, humanism, and religion in the context of modern ethical inquiries like social justice, equity, and harmony across different sections in societies. He stresses the need for a holistic approach to resolve moral questions in everyday life. Balancing Western notions of the ethical and the Hindu notions of Dharma, the author analyses Gandhi, the thinker, activist, and philosopher. He presents an engaging connection between three systems of thought—ethics, Gandhian principles, and the Hindu scriptures. Printed Pages: 277. 036592

Konst I Förvandling: Bildkonst i Finland på 1960-1980-talen
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2011; 9522223344; New; 
iKonst i förvandling/i är det första verket som ger en helhetsbild av den finska bildkonstens utveckling från 1960-talet till början av 1990-talet. Perioden präglades å ena sidan av en stark konkretistisk strömning som hade börjat redan på 1950-talet, å andra sidan av nya, internationella och snabbt växlande konstriktningar och ismer som informell konst, amerikansk popkonst, kinetisk konst, abstrakt expressionism, samhällsinriktad realism, minimalism, konceptkonst och fotorealism. Samtidigt växte det fram nya uttrycksmedel som happeningar, performancer, fotografier, videor och installationer. Konstens uttrycksmedel blev mångsidigare och den finska bildkonsten började internationaliseras efter årtionden av isolering. Printed Pages: 214. 114272

Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2011; 952222300X; New; 
Teos on ensimmäinen kokonaisesitys suomalaisen kuvataiteen kehityksestä 1960-luvulta 1990-luvun alkuun. Aikakautta leimasi toisaalta 1950-luvulta jatkunut vahva konkretistinen traditio, toisaalta uudet kansainväliset, nopeasti vaihtuvat taidesuuntaukset ja ismit, kuten informalismi, amerikkalainen pop-taide, kineettinen taide, abstrakti ekspressionismi, yhteiskunnallinen realismi, minimalismi, käsitetaide ja fotorealismi. Samaan aikaan happening, performanssi, valokuva, video ja installaatiot nousivat vahvasti esiin taiteen uusiksi ilmaisumuodoiksi. Printed Pages: 214. 115539

Helsingin vanha tulli- ja pakkahuone valmistui vuonna 1765 Helsingin pääsataman yhteyteen. Talon rakentaminen liittyi Viaporin ja Helsingin linnoitustöihin, sillä rakennuksen oli tarkoitus olla osa kaupungin puolelle rakennettavaa kurtiinimuuria, joka jäi kuitenkin toteutumatta. Rakennuksessa on toiminut niin Helsingin tullikamari, kaupungin huutokauppakamari kuin Kruununhaan poliisiasema ja Helsingin pysäköinninvalvontakin. Muutaman vuoden hiljaiselon ja korjaustöiden jälkeen vanha tulli- ja pakkahuone toimii nyt Suomalaisen Kirjallisuuden Seuran Kirjatalona. Printed Pages: 165. 114224

My Life and Times: Premchand
Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 2006; 8174364323; First Edition; Paperback; New; 8.5 x 5.5 Inches 
A unique ‘autobiography’ of one of the greatest storytellers of our times, Munshi Premchand, recreated from his works by the man regarded as ‘Premchand’s Boswell’,Madan Gopal. Often compared to Gorky and Tolstoy, Premchand was not only a versatile writer of short stories, novels, dramas and essays, but also played an active role in the country’s freedom movement. His stories took birth from the lives of the common people, their vicissitudes and deprivations, as well as their small joys and victories. Premchand rebelled against narrow religious bigotry and, in fighting it through his writing, he imbued a whole generation with the idea of a new social order of justice and equality. The author, Madan Gopal, has based his narrative on a study of almost everything of consequence written by or on Premchand in Hindi and Urdu, including numerous unpublished letters written by, and to Premchand which provide an intimate knowledge of the man, the writer, and the thinker. Madan Gopal’s deep study of the writer whom he reveres has enabled him to tell the story of his life almost as the master storyteller would have told it himself. For all aficionados of Munshi Premchand, this is a book that must find a place on their shelves. Printed Pages: 230. 014956

Top Winning Letters
Goodwill Publishing House; New Delhi, India; 8172450400; Softcover; New; 
Despite the invention and spread of telecommunica­tions like telephone, fax, telegraph and even videophone, the simple letter, typed or hand-written on paper, remains the most popular means of communication for social, cultural, technical, official, administrative and commercial purposes. The 'reason is not far to find. It is said that the style is the man through the language used by us we reveal our motives, inclinations, intentions and the degree of emotions we wish to convey. A laconic clipped telegram has no feeling, for it only conveys facts and figures.Today, almost 80 per cent of the world's mail is in English and it is vital for our existence and success to master the art of letter-writing. The techniques to be adopted are self-evident in the pages that follow. The style of address, the format for the date, leave-taking are all in the numerous specimens in this book. Nevertheless, an overall statement may be made about the salient features of letter-writing here:The name of the place and the date are written on the left top of letter. The person addressed is also to be on the left side just above 'Dear Sir' etc. Printed Pages: 368. 108143

Contesting the Saudi State: Islamic Voices from a New Generation
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2006; 0521858364; First Edition; Hardcover; Brand New; Brand New; 228 x 152 Mm 
The terms Wahhabi or Salafi are seen as interchangeable and frequently misunderstood by outsiders. However, as Madawi al-Rasheed explains in a fascinating exploration of Saudi Arabia in the twenty-first century, even Saudis do not agree on their meaning. Under the influence of mass education, printing, new communication technology, and global media, they are forming their own conclusions and debating religion and politics in traditional and novel venues, often violating official taboos and the conservative values of the Saudi society. Drawing on classical religious sources, contemporary readings and interviews, Al-Rasheed presents an ethnography of consent and contest, exploring the fluidity of the boundaries between the religious and political. Bridging the gap between text and context, the author also examines how states and citizens manipulate religious discourse for purely political ends, and how this manipulation generates unpredictable reactions whose control escapes those who initiated them. • A groundbreaking analysis of religious and political debate in Saudi Arabia after 9/11 • Explains the rise of a radical Islamist movement in Saudi Arabia • Considers Bin Laden’s legacy and Saudi attitudes towards its ‘favourite son’ Contents Glossary; Maps; Introduction; 1.

19091 Madawi al-Rasheed
A History of Saudi Arabia
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2002; 0521644127; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Saudi Arabia is a wealthy and powerful country which wields influence in the West and across the Islamic world. Yet it remains a closed society. Its history in the twentieth century is dominated by the story of state formation. After the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, Ibn Sa’ud fought a long campaign to bring together a disparate people from across the Arabian peninsula. In 1932 the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia was born. Madawi al-Rasheed traces its extraordinary history from the age of emirates in the nineteenth century, through the 1990 Gulf War, to the present day. She fuses chronology with analysis, personal experience with oral histories, and draws on local and foreign documents to illuminate the social and cultural life of the Saudis. This is a rich and rewarding book which will be invaluable to students, and to all those trying to understand the enigma of Saudi Arabia. Contents Introduction; 1. Society and politics (1744–1818 and 1824–91); 2. The emerging state (1902–1918); 3. Control and loyalty; 4. The politics of dissent (1953–73); 5. From affluence to austerity (1973–90); 6. The Gulf War and its aftermath (1990–2000); 7. Narratives of the state, narratives of the people; Conclusions. Printed Pages: 274 with 8 half-tones, 3 tables, 2 maps, and 3 genealogical tables. 008716

19094 Madhabendra Nath Mitra, Mihir Kumar Chakraborty, and Sundar Sarukkai (eds)
Studies in Logic: A Dialogue Between the East and the West. Homage to Bimal Krishna Matilal
Sanctum Books; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8190995030; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Ten essays of this book, two of which are written in Sanskrit, range from modern logic to classical Indian theories of inference. Classical Indian philosophy comprising Pracina and Navya- Nyaya, Sankhya, Buddhist and Jaina logical and philosophical standpoints are discussed in most modern technical terms of western philosophy, often with the aid of terminologies of modern logic. Similarly, western ideas propounded by the ancient Greek philosophers like Aristotle as well as contemporary philosophers such as Frege, Russell, Srawson, Kripke and many others are placed against the backdrop of classical Indian philosophy. The book will be immensely useful to those interested in stimulating meaningful dialogues between philosophical thinkings of India and the West. The book will also be of interest to those who aim at broadening the horizon of logic and philosophy. Printed Pages: 271. 037244
