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

Muutosten pyörteissä: Suomalaista kuvataidetta 1960-1980-Luvuilta
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

Siinä valaistaan miten hygienian ja modernin sairaala-arkkitehtuurin liitosta tuli strategia, jonka avulla tuotettiin lääketieteellisesti ja esteettisesti hygieenisen tilan lisäksi myös pedagogista ja moraalista hygieniaa sekä luokkahygieniaa.

Mariankatu 3: Vanhan tulli- ja pakkahuoneen Historiaa
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2006; 9517467788; New; 
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

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.

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.

19155 Madawi al-Rasheed
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. Consenting subjects: official Wahhabi religio-political discourse; 2. Re-enchanting politics: Sahwis from contestation to co-optation; 3.

19156 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

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

India and China in the Colonial World
Social Science Press and Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2005; 8187358203; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
THIS VOLUME brings together thirteen essays by eminent Indian and Chinese scholars as well as young researchers who look at the multi-dimensional interactions which took place between the two countries during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. This interaction was a complex one. It was of many kinds and took place at various levels, and therefore cannot be reduced to any simple understanding either of widespread anti-colonial solidarity or political hostility or indifference. It is possible to see in these interactions seeds of future misunderstandings as well as a basis for common aspirations founded on a sense of shared anti-imperialism and the rediscovery of each other’s cultures. This volume looks at some of the problems that have confronted the relations between India and China as new states and in doing so, challenges stereotyped images of this relationship. The major areas of the India-China relationship covered in this book relate to trade, migratory communities, cultural interaction, and the links between the political struggles in the two countries. It also includes some aspects of the situation during and after the Second World War. Printed Pages: 266. 031527

Anaphoric Relation in Hindi and English
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1992; 81-215-0541-9; First Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
The book explores the anaphoric relations in Hindi (and English) in the framework of the Government and Binding Theory (GB) developed by Chomsky (1980-81) to account for complex surface properties of a language in a principled manner. In particular, the book deals with the three principles of the Binding Theory of GB and tests their universal applicability vis-à-vis Hindi data. The present study investigates the conditions under which nominal elements in Hindi (whether they are referential expressions, pronominal elements or anaphors) may stand in a relation of co-reference to one another. The book concerns itself with the question of considering for the GB theory the implications of the consequences of the investigations. The book also suggests some possible modifications to explain and accommodate the observed differences. The book contributes to linguistics research both at a descriptive and theoretical level. It also helps uncover systematic patterns of both similarity and variation between Hindi and English. It also points to various areas of research needed to be conducted before a comprehensive theory of Hindi syntax can be arrived at. Printed Pages: 130. 011774

The Kapoors: The First Family of Indian Cinema
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0670058378; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16.5 x 25 Cm 
There is no film family quite like the Kapoors. A family of professional actors and directors, they span almost eighty years of film-making in India, from the twenties to the present. Each decade in the history of Hindi films has had at least one Kapoor—if not more—playing a large part in defining it. Prithviraj came to Bombay in the twilight era of silent movies and went on to straddle both theatre and the silver screen like a colossus, starring in the first full-length talkie, Alam Ara (1931), setting up Prithvi Theatres, and giving life to memorable characters like Akbar and Sikandar on-screen. His three sons—Raj Kapoor, Shammi Kapoor and Shashi Kapoor—have earned secure and distinct places in the celluloid pantheon, dominating Hindi cinema throughout the fifties and sixties. Over the next decade and a half, Raj Kapoor’s sons Randhir and Rishi Kapoor survived the Amitabh Bachchan-spawned age of the action hero. Later, just when it looked like the family’s fortune in tinsel town was finally in decline, Karisma Kapoor, the first daughter of the clan to become a star, and her sister Kareena put it right back in the lead. As this book goes to press, Rishi Kapoor’s son Ranbir Raj is waiting in the wings. Never before have four generations of this family—or five, if you include Bashesharnath Kapoor, Prithviraj Kapoor’s father, who played the judge in Awara—been brought together in one book. The Kapoors details the professional careers and personal lives of each generation—box-office successes and failures, the ideologies that informed their work, the larger-than-life Kapoor weddings and Holi celebrations, their extraordinary romantic liaisons and family relationships, their love for food and their dark passages with alcohol. Madhu Jain goes behind the façade of each of them to reveal what makes them tick: what prompted Prithviraj Kapoor to leave Peshawar for Bombay to become an actor, abandoning his semi-bourgeois background; what explains Raj Kapoor’s all-consuming, at times self-destructive, passion for cinema; what it was about the Kapoors that made them so irresistible to the women they worked with; and what it has been like for each successive generation of the Kapoors to grow up in the shadow of overwhelming ancestors. Based on extensive personal interviews conducted over seven years with family members and friends, The Kapoors resembles the films that the great showman Raj Kapoor made: grand and sweeping, with moments of high drama and touching emotion. Unprecedented in its scope and wealth of detail, it is a must-read for all lovers of cinema. Unprecedented in its scope and wealth of detail, it is a must-read for all lovers of cinema.

Saktapramodah of Deva Nandan Singh
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8124606897; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Shaktapramoda of Deva Nandan Singh is a liturgical paddhati-style compendium of sixteen independent ritual manuals. The first ten works, comprising the major part of the text, are dedicated to the group of ten Tantric goddesses, referred to as the Ten Great Mahavidyas or “Ten Supreme Powers” — the goddesses Kali, Tara, Sodashi, Bhuvaneshvari, Chinnamasta, Matangi, Tripurabhairavi, Dhumavati, Bagalamukhi and Kamala. The next important text closely allied to the worship of the goddesses is the Kumari Tantra devoted to the worship of a young maiden (Kumari). The next group of works comprises the pentad of Tantras devoted to five deities: Ganesha, Vishnu, Shiva, Durga and Surya. These five deities are invoked in almost all forms of ritual worship prescribed by the Vedas, Puranas and to a degree by the Tantras. Each Tantra describes the dhyana of the deity, the yantra, mantras and the method of Tantric form of worship of the deity, along with praise hymns, protective formulas (kavaca) and litanies of divine names, be they a group of hundred names (shatanama) or a thousand names (sahasranama). The first edition of Shaktapramoda was published by Raja Deva Nandan Singh, an aristocratic zamindar of Muzaffarpur, Bihar, in the nineteenth century. The present edition brings together a fully edited and revised text with an elaborate introduction (in English), and a comprehensive index along with lithographic images of Tantric deities.Printed Pages: 736. 100461

THAT! The Philosophy of Ultimate Truth: A Modern Approach
Global Vision Publishing House; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8182203910; Hardcover; New; New; 
The gigantic increase in the human knowledge within a very short span of some recent centuries has opened up the possibility that the human beings may sometimes reach the ultimate truth. This book is about the quest of Man for knowing the ultimate truth. The concept of the ultimate truth was discarded in the Modern Era when the method of the search for the truth became the realistic experimentation and observation rather than the deep abstract contemplations. The book is an attempt to make the readers venture into that path where only the brave can tread on ? It is like treading on the razor?s edge. Contents Preface (v) 1. In Search of That 1 2.

19196 Madhu Mohan Komaragiri
Pitch Analysis in South Indian Music: with a Critical Examination of the Theory of 22 Sruti-s
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 812151262X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 19 x 25 Cm 
This book embodies the pioneering doctoral research work of Madhu Mohan Komaragiri. This is the first time a comprehensive pitch analysis is presented in South Indian music holistically combining ancient Sanskrit musical treatises, medieval and modern musicological interpretations, neuro-physiological hearing process and psycho-acoustical pitch perception corroborated with computer pitch analysis of actual audio samples specifically recorded for the purpose of this research. This contribution is significant and original. In his bold and critical analysis, the author shows why the theories of 22 sruti-s are inapplicable to the system of raga music. He explains why sruti is not quantifiable. The modern theories based on Western tuning concepts and mathematics, that place the 22 sruti-s among the various raga-s have been completely debunked. The fluidity of svara has been clearly demonstrated with multiple characteristic Pitch Profiles of svara-s that are context-dependent. The author talks about intonation guided by the psycho-physiologically driven tonotopic organization in the primary auditory cortex in the brain. He highlights the non-acoustical dynamics variability in intonation, influenced by perception. In line with this analysis, concepts such as the octave, intervals, scales, modal shift of tonic, and consonance have been freshly re-examined. The author explains the fundamental concepts lucidly while clearing some widespread myths. This book is indispensable for research scholars and valuable for students. The general reader will find this informative book quite stimulating. Printed Pages: 238. 037680

Deepening Democracy: Challenges of Governance and Globalization in India
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2005; 019-567689-X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
As India prepares to enter an era that promises more wealth, equity, and prosperity to its citizens, this volume brings together essays by noted shcolar-activist Madhu Purnima Kishwar on enduring issues such as rights, governance, and the impact of globalization on the average Indian citizen. The volume covers a range of issues from a glimpse of the Licence-Permit-Raid Raj as it affects the livelihood of the self-employed poor, to a critique of India's farm and economic policies. It further discusses the new divides being created by the country's language policy to the causes and possible remedies for ethnic conflicts in India. A common thread running through all essays is how most of India's contemporay problems arise out of malgovernance, the choice of inappropriate policies, and a lack of accountability in government that adversely affects the people of India, depresses their incomes, and makes it difficult for ordinary hard working citizens to earn a simple livelihood w it hout payoffs and suffering numerous humiliations. Kishwar argues that the poor need economic freedom far more urgently than the rich and builds a case for a bottom-up agenda of economic reforms. Challenging the critics of globalization, the volume demonstrates how, if India participates actively and intelligently in the WTO, this will open far-reaching opportunities for the farm sector as well as its industries. While acknowledging that the current trade regime is biased in favour of powerful industrialized nations, Kishwar points to entrenched assumptions and positions taken by those she calls the Anti-Globalization Brigade who claim that liberalization and globalization are intrinsically anti-Third World and anti-poor. Written in a lucid and engaging style, this book will draw a wide readership among scholars across disciplines, in addition to activists, journalists, policy-makers, bureaucrats, and the lay reader.
