Gender Justice, Citizenship and Development
Zubaan in association with IDRC; New Delhi, India; 978818988431X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Although there have been notable gains for women globally in the last few decades, gender inequality and gender-based inequities continue to impinge upon girls' and women's ability to relaize their rights and their full potential as citizens and equal partners. In fact for every right that has been established, there are millions of women who do not enjoy it. In this book, studies from Latin America and the Caribbean, the Middle East and North Africa, sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, are prefaced by an introductory chapter that links current thinking on gender justice to debates on citizenship, entitlements, and law and development. A concluding chapter situates the discussion of gender justice, citizenship and entitlements in current development debates on poverty alleviation and social exclusion. The book brings together multidisciplinary perspectives from leading feminist scholars of sociology, political science and legal studies, among others, and in doing so, provides new insights for both advocacy and reserach. Contents Foreword 1 Gender Justice, Citizenship and Development: An Introduction 2 Gender Justice, Citizenship and Entitlements: Core Concepts, Central Debates and New Directions for Research 3 Refiguring Citizenship: Research Perspectives on Gender Justce in the Latin American and Caribbean Region 4 Challenging the Liberal Subject: Law and Gender Justice in South Asia 5 Situating Gender and Citizenship in Development Debates: Towards a Strategy 6 Addressing Formal and Substantive Citizenship: Gender Justice in Sub-Sharan Africa 7 Unequal Citizenship: Issues of Gender Justice in the Middle East and North Africa 8 Select Bibliography 9 Notes on Contributors.

Nuclear Energy in India's Energy Security Matrix: An Appraisal
Vij Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789382652359; Hardcover; New; New; 
Energy is essential for the economic growth of a nation. Its absence or deficiency makes a nation highly vulnerable to international arms twisting as well as internal disturbances. As such, it is an important element in a nation's security matrix. India which is in the lower half of the countries as far as the energy consumption per capita is concerned. One of major reasons is the gap between the demand and the capacity of the country to supply the energy from indigenous sources. One of the important sources that hold promise in Indian context is the nuclear energy as it is clean and the resource; thorium to produce power through this route is available indigenously. However despite a well developed plan for energy conversion in place, using indigenous resources for over half a century, it is still considered only promising. Relevant questions in this regard are; whether perceived promise is realizable? If so, in what time frame and at what cost? Will it be safe keeping in view its capacity to cause wide spread devastation? Is there a need to seek technical collaboration with other countries or will it be better to go indigenous route only? How do we tackle the widening demand- supply gap during the interim? And finally is there a case for a review for the existing decision loop/energy management system? An attempt has been made in this book to address these issues. It is also expected that the concept advocated in this book for achieving energy security for India by 2030 will initiate a wider debate on the subject.Printed Pages: 334. 103232

Water, air and sun light are the three most important resources for the sustenance of life on the planet earth. While human race has hardly any control on air and sun light, water from time immemorial has always been used by various kingdoms/ states/ groups of people as an important aspect of their respective security policy to exercise their influence over their adversaries through a control/ denial of common water resources. Such a conflict of interest has often led the concerned stake holders, to go for dispute resolution through an armed skirmish/ battle. It needs to be appreciated that the shortage of water affects food security and the energy security of a country. With depleting resources and increasing demands; the situation is gradually becoming extremely critical and a number of flash points for future conflicts are emerging.Printed Pages: 288. 103245

Role of Pakistan in India's Energy Security
Vij Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789382652182; Softcover; New; 
India's energy security concerns. It sheds light on India's energy insecurity and explores its various dimensions, its nature and extent. It examines the role that trade, foreign and security policy should play in enhancing India's energy security. It is argued that the key challenge for India is to increase economic growth while at the same time keeping energy demands low. This is especially challenging with the transition from biomass to fossil fuels, the growth of the motorized private transport and rising incomes, aspirations and changing lifestyles. The book suggests that at this time there are strong arguments to lessen India's fossil fuel dependence and it argues for a need to engage with all the key sources of this dependence to implement a process of energy change.Prinred Pages: 96. 103265

Discovering Life: A Poet Within
Vitasta Publishing Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 9789380828466; Hardcover; New; New; 
Discovering Life, a Poet Within is a beautiful flow of thoughts, observations and reflections about mystery of life by a former senior army officer. His urge to unravel this mystery, so close to our hearts, yet so distant, deepened when he ventured to share his thoughts in his first book, Seasons of Life, Extraordinary Life of an Ordinary Soldier.Spurred by wide acceptance and readability of his first book, his quest continued with a renewed vigour and has now found an expression in this book. But this time in a totally new language, the preserve of the literary wizards, the forbidden domain, the artistic domain of poetry. This book is a collection of 100 poems, all on different topics, all about various facets of life, all with a subtle message and all in the first person. The author feels that, this was not done with a design, but has emerged to be so. Perhaps, instinctively.The book traces the intricate web of emotions and various facets of life like, the sublime feeling of love, misery and pain in life, the dilemma of conflicting thoughts, the nature and its cosmic manifestations, stretch of his poetic imagination to crystal gaze into this world and the world beyond, and finally the memories, what these hold for us in store. Each of these themes has been expressed beautifully in many of his poems. The Author feels that there is a poet residing within each one of us, waiting for an opportune moment or a trigger to surface.Overall, the frank and free flow of thoughts coming straight from the heart and expressed beautifully strikes a chord. There is so much to pick up from this book. Printed Pages: 240. 107246

The Asia Pacific region is a dynamic but complex area where much of the history of the 21st Century will be scripted. Although the strategic and economic importance of the region continues to grow, challenges of reconciling national interests with regional and global interests continue. Security architectures during the Cold War were based primarily on military alliances. However the need today is to base these architectures on shared values, interests and challenges. We need not only define but believe in these universal values. This book brings out this important aspect of this region and explains them briefly.Printed Pages: 186. 103237

Peace and Stability in Afghanistan: The Way Ahead
Vij Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2010; 9789380177205; Hardcover; New; New; 
Even after almost eight years of international community's efforts in Afghanistan the instability and turbulence in Afghanistan has increased rather than abated. Not only has Afghanistan seen ever increasing levels of violence and loss of life the virus of instability and culture of violence has also spread across the Durand line with hardly any silver line on the horizon. A deadly insurgency, higher opium production, increasing civilian casualties, rampant corruption, an unstable neighborhood and an uncertain political future remain the defining features of the complex and combustible situation that obtains in Afghanistan.This book based on the seminar on peace and stability in Afghanistan and the way ahead is built around four themes of security, governance, development and examination of likely future scenarios and offering recommendations for policy and strategy choices which can be made now so as to move towards a better and brighter future for Afghanistan and in effect for rest of the international community.Printed Pages: 240. 103252

The Highlands of India, 2 vols
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1984; 8172680333; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Highlands of India in two volumes, consists of a series of papers written originally for the Journal of the United Service Institution of India. They were, however, found “not to suit the requirements of a purely military journal.” As a result, they were offered to the general public instead. First published between the year 1882-87, the two volumes together offer the reader a glimpse into the variegated highland landscapes of the Indian Peninusla : the “ Vale of Cashmere” , the Pir Panjal Pass, the North West Frontier, Simla, Kasuli, Dugshai ; Himalayan watersheds, Kumanon and the Garhwal ; Darjeeling and Sikkim ; the Khasia hills ; the Annamalays and the Nilgherries in the South along with Coorg, Wyand and Malabar ; the Syhoodria (Sahyadris), the Vindhyas and the Satpoora ranges ; the Aravellis ; India Alba and Newera Ellia in Ceylon. Profusely illustrated with maps, figures, diagrams and sketches, the work offers a panoramic view of the entire peninsula. The theme of Volume I is avowedly “Military Colonization as a Reserve for Indi”, Major General Newall points to the wisdom of locating British troops in the mountain ranges and the establishment of sanitaria and hill stations with a view to form sites for military or other colonies as “reserve circles”. Despite the fact that the author claims that he has no pretension to offer an exhaustive description of the Indian Highlands, what emerges is, in fact, an excellent guide to these highlands, together with descriptive sketches of the surrounding country and historical notes on several tribes inhabiting these areas. Interspersed are geological and topographical notes and footnotes, British interest in the Indian highlands was for the perpetuation of their rule in the peninsula. The Strategic importance of these highlands which was the chief concern of the author has not diminished even today. The contents of Volume II are arranged in the same consecutive order as the first volume. Here, however, the author indulges in presenting sketches of the highlands of India from a “Picturesque point of view” rather than restrict himself to a “curt and bald exposition of their Military, Industrial and Sanitary aspects. “ As the title indicates, Volume II is a “Chronicle of Field Sports and Travel in India.” Shooting trips and fishing expeditions, horseback rides and long mountain treks, Major Newall has embellished the book with innumerable anecdotes and descriptive sketches of the country and its inhabitants. Both volumes should be of absorbing interest equally to the military strategist and the lover of field sports and also to the lay reader whose heart is in the highlands. This reprint edition should be useful also to researchers in geography, geology, sociology and military studies.x. Printed Pages: 768. 112316

Mass Media and Social Change
MD Publications/Prints Publications; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8175332107; Hardcover; New; New; 
Media is part of our routine relations with family and friends. They define our interaction with other people on a daily basis as a diversion, sources of conflict, or a unifying force. Media have an impact on society not only through the content of the message but also through the process. The society in which we lived depends on information and communication to keep moving in the right direction and do our daily activities like work, entertainment, health care, education, personal relationships, traveling and anything else that we have to do. The media shape our attitudes about everything from soap to politics. It's important for us to be aware of the impact the mass media has on each and every one but we need to be vigilant and ask ourselves to look for opinions and evaluate the facts for ourselves rather than blindly accepting the media's version of the truth.

Consumer Rights Perspectives and Experiences
MD Publications/Prints Publications; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8175332115; Hardcover; New; New; 
In the 20th century, the presence and influence of the market grew dramatically in consumer life and consumer is the real deciding factor for all economic activities. Protecting consumer rights is all about making sure that when something is bought, lost, stolen or found, or a service has been paid for and has not been provided, that the consumer has some basic rights that will protect them. The Consumer Protection Act, 1986 is the most important legislation enacted to provide for effective safeguards to consumers against various types of exploitations and unfair dealings, relying on mainly compensatory rather than a punitive or preventive approach. This book gives awareness of one's consumer rights. Printed Pages: 272. 117545

Psychosocial Aspects of Domestic Violence
MD Publications/Prints Publications; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8175332174; Hardcover; New; New; 
Domestic violence is coercive behaviour through the use of intimidating, threatening, harmful, or harassing behaviour. This definition validates that domestic violence includes multiple forms of abuse-physical, sexual and emotional or psychological and includes physical assault, sexual abuse and stalking. An important component of domestic violence, often ignored is the realm of passive abuse, leading to violence. Passive abuse is covert, subtle and veiled. This includes victimization, ambiguity and neglect spiritual and intellectual abuse. Domestic violence is an ongoing experience of physical, psychological and/or sexual abuse in the home that is used to establish power and control over another person. Witnessing domestic violence can lead children to develop an array of age-dependent negative effects. Children who witness violence in the home and children who are abused may display many similar psychological effects. These children are at greater risk for internalized behaviours such as anxiety and depression, and for externalized behaviours such as fighting, bullying, lying, or cheating.

Higher Than Everest: Memoirs of a Mountaineer
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2016; 9789385285264; Hardcover; New; New; 
This is the inspiring true story of one of India's most iconic mountaineers - Major HPS Ahluwalia, who was the member of India's first successful expedition to Everest. But the story does not end with this spectacular achievement. In fact this is where the real story begins - for the struggle to climb Everest was but a preparation for an even bigger challenge that lay ahead.Just four months after his success, Major Ahluwalia suffered a grievous spinal injury in the Indo-Pak war of 1965. In a man of lesser courage, this could have destroyed his spirit but in Major Ahluwalia's case, it ignited a deep passion.This is the story of how he fought 'the impossible fight' towards rehabilitation and how he achieved the 'seemingly unattainable dream' of building India's first world class Spinal Injuries Centre.This is ultimately the story of how Major Ahluwalia conquered a Summit even higher than the Everest, the Summit of the Mind.

19748 Makarand Paranjape (ed.)
The Penguin Swami Vivekananda Reader
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0143032542; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
On 11 September 1893, Swami Vivekananda (1863–1902) made his first public appearance on the world stage as a last-minute, uninvited participant at the Parliament of Religions in Chicago. There he proclaimed his message of tolerance and universal acceptance in the ‘name of millions and millions of Hindu people of all classes and sects’. Speaking against sectarianism and bigotry, this young speaker in flaming robes sounded the death-knell of all fanaticism. In his brief life of less than forty years, Swami Vivekananda wrote four outstanding treatises on Hindu philosophy: Jnana Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, Karma Yoga and Raja Yoga. He also taught, lectured and travelled tirelessly. After his death, his message spread all over India and in many parts of the world through the various activities, efforts and services of the Ramakrishna Mission and Math, the monastic order that he had founded in the name of his guru. The Penguin Swami Vivekananda Reader is the first major compilation of Vivekananda’s selected works aimed at a general audience. It includes speeches, essays, letters, poems, conversations and excerpts from his books on subjects that have contemporary relevance: celebration of the Indian spirit, karma, spirituality, reincarnation, realization of the Absolute. Swami Vivekananda’s writings do not merely inspire, but propel action. With a detailed biography and a scholarly introduction, the Reader provides a rare insight into one of India’s greatest minds.

19753 Makhan Lal Sen
The Ramayana of Valmiki: translated into English
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8121500931; Tenth Reprint; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Makhan Lal Sen's The Ramayana of Valmiki is a modernized version in English prose of the great Sanskrit epic Ramayana. The appeal and freshness of epic poems transcend all limitations imposed by time, space, age, caste, creed, society and language. All, irrespective of their age, succumb to the charms and fascinating personalities of its heroes, who have inspired countless men of different generations and spurred them on to perform almost superhuman task. Modern civilization owes most of dazzling achievements to such inspiration. Valmiki's Ramayana is something more than an epic. No one has built shrines in honour of Horner's heroes, to worship them as God. In contrast, from the time of its composition to this day, Valmiki's hero never lacked devotees. The reason for this strange phenomenon lies in this: in the Greek epics the cause is ambition, and the effect is the valour of its heroes; in Ramayana the cause is the moral welfare of society and the effect is the ideal conduct of its heroes under the most trying circumstances that destiny can weave. Rama is a personification of all that is expected of an ideal son, ideal brother, ideal husband, ideal prince, ideal ally, ideal commander and an ideal king. Translation of epics and rendering them in prose, is, at the best of times, an hazardous and arduous job. Here the translator has done his best to capture to a remarkable degree the grandeur of the epic, the loftiness of its thought, the simplicity and elegance of its enduring beauty. This book, being one of those rare ones which elevates one's soul, should find a place under every roof. Printed Pages: 624. 017710

The Famine of 1896-1897 in Bengal: Availability or Entitlement Crisis?
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2005; 8125023895; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
This book is a focussed treatment of a famine both as an 'event' and a 'process'. It is a close-up of a peasant economy in the throes of a crisis which temporarily eroded the value-system determining the normal pattern of entitlements. An investigation of the socio-economic, ecological and cultural determinants of the famine helps evolve a coherent framework. The emphasis is on the distinctive problems of the various economic regions, most notably the tribal belts. Chakrabarti applies Amartya Sen's theory of exchange entitlements to a nineteenth century famine situation in Bengal, and finds that a market-based entitlement failure precipitating severe famine conditions, "even without receiving any impulse from food production", has little relevance here. Though teh book underlines the predicament of the subalterns, the famine is not seen from the viewpoint of any specific group or community. The focus is, rather, on the phenomenon of famine in its totality---on the agony and trauma of a peasant society thrown out of gear in an abnormal situation, and the crisis of identities that ensued.

At sixteen, she has become a global symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest ever nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize. I Am Malala is the remarkable tale of a family uprooted by global terrorism of the fight for girls education and of Malala's parents fierce love for their daughter in a society that prizes sons.

Learning from Children What to Teach Them
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0761936114; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This enriching book explores quality education at the grassroots level for disadvantaged children. It evolves and evaluates strategies for the promotion of the overall development of children in the motor, cognitive, language, emotional, social and moral domains. The methods used revolve around children, with a larger purpose of shaping young minds as opposed to solely enhancing academic skills. The essence of the book lies in what adults can learn from children while teaching them. Though the book stems from case studies of schools in rural Karnataka, it has implications for effectively providing quality education to children across the nation. It quantitatively evaluates the process of intervention that consists of 20-25 hours of group work with the school children and qualitatively describes the outcome in terms of promotion of psycho-social development.

Memories of Belonging: Images from the Colony and Beyond
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 9789383098590; Hardcover; New; New; 
Memories of Belonging can be read as a collection of slightly offbeat musings on certain aspects of over a century and a half of this country’s history. Whether the photograph, lithograph, painting or cartoon is the focus or illustrates a point or an argument, the visual is integral to each piece. A rough historical sense divides the volume into three sections: the first sets the stage for the appearance of the colonial state – not through the usual tropes of political and economic domination but more with vignettes about institutions, people and unusual choices. The second section is a whimsical journey through India while the final section is all about modes of travel used by a century and a half of people on the move, beginning with the palki and ending with experiences of the railways. Through its easy style, well-chosen visuals and details peppered with anecdotes, the reader will quickly journey through colonial India into its more recent past, garnering interesting and often little-known facts and snippets along the way.Printed Pages: 228 with 90 colour photographs. 106577

Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0195677315; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 23 x 29 Cm 
This rare collection of 300 archival photographs accompanied by explanatory captions depicts women s lives during the period 1875 1947.

Focusing on the photographs, the book is divided into five sections of images: Visualizing the Family showcases family photographs that show the changing role of women due to the emergence of the urban nuclear family The Learning Experience looks at pioneers in educational reform and the experiences of women in schools and colleges Worlds Beyond studies the beginnings of women s emancipation by recording upper caste women as pioneers in the creative arts, middle-class women travelling and experiencing life outside the hom e, and women as agricultural labourers and factory workers The Freedom Struggle documents the process of women s evolution as active political beings in a critical phase of the nation s history and Towards the Midnight Hour captures a sense of challenge and commitment by highlighting the emergence of women as professionals and their experiences through the Bengal famine, Quit India movement, Partition, and the Second World War. This professionally designed, well-produced volume provides a more holistic understanding of what is learnt through the written word, memory, and recall.

The Trial of the Templars
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2006; 0521856396; Second Edition; Hardcover; Brand New; Brand New; 228 x 152 Mm 
The Templars fought against Islam in the crusader east for nearly two centuries. During that time the original small band grew into a formidable army, backed by an extensive network of preceptories in the Latin West. In October 1307, the members of this seemingly invulnerable and respected Order were arrested on the orders of Philip IV, King of France and charged with serious heresies, including the denial of Christ, homosexuality and idol worship. The ensuing proceedings lasted for almost five years and culminated in the suppression of the Order. The motivations of the participants and the long-term repercussions of the trial have been the subject of intense and unresolved controversy, which still has resonances in our own time. In this new edition of his classic account, Malcolm Barber discusses the trial in the context of new work on the crusades, heresy, the papacy and the French monarchy. • The story of the Templars is one of the most dramatic, the best known but the most mythologised stories of the Middle Ages • This is the most in-depth and authoritative treatment of their trial ever written • In this definitive new edition the trial is discussed in the context of new work on the crusades, heresy, the papacy and the French monarchy Contents Preface; Introduction; 1. The participants; 2. The arrests; 3. The papal intervention; 4. The papal and episcopal inquiries; 5. The defence of the Order; 6. The end of resistance; 7. The charges; 8. The trial in other countries; 9. The suppression; 10. Conclusion; Notes; Chronology of the trial; Recent historiography on the dissolution of the Temple; Bibliography; Index.

The Trial of Templars (The New Cambridge History of India)
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 1993; 0521457270; Paperback; New; 
On 18 March 1314, Jacques de Molay, Grand Master of the Templars, was burned at the stake. For almost two centuries, the knights of the Order of the Temple had flourished during the Crusades in Palestine and Syria, and in the West, notably in France. But in 1307, the Templars in France were arrested by King Philip IV’s officials in the name of the Inquisition, their property seized and the men charged with serious heresies, including the denial of Christ, homosexuality and idol worship. Confessions, extracted under torture, were brought before royal and papal tribunals, but in 1310 a number of Templar brothers mounted a defence of their Order, refuelling the controversies which continued for a further four years before the final executions. Malcolm Barber’s fascinating account, assessing the charges brought against the Order, once again puts the Templars on trial. Contents Preface; Introduction; 1. The participants; 2. The arrests; 3. The papal intervention; 4. The papal and episcopal inquiries; 5. The defence of the Order; 6. The end of resistance; 7. The charges; 8. The trial in other countries; 9. The suppression; 10. Conclusion; Appendix A: The articles of accusation, 12 August 1308; Appendix B: An orthodox reception: the description of Gérard de Caux, 12 January 1311; Chronology of the trial; Notes; Bibliography; Index.

Recent Researches in Sanskrit Computational Linguistics: Fifth International Symposium IIT Mumbai, India, January 2013 Proceedings
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8124606986; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 19 x 25 Cm 
This volume is the proceedings of the 5th International Sanskrit Computational Linguistics Symposium (ISCLS), held at IIT Bombay during 4-6 January 2013. These proceedings include fourteen selected and three invited papers. The selected papers deal with topics such as computational modelling of Panini's grammar — Ashtadhyayi — together with its supplementary texts, computational tools for Sanskrit language and their applications in the traditional Sanskrit concerns. Accordingly, this book delves upon how clues from Ashtadhyayi help in identifying compound types; how Ashtadhyayi’s digital edition can be structured and implemented; the completeness analysis of a Sanskrit reader; graph-based analysis of parallel passages; some relation-specific issues in parsing Sanskrit texts, text normalizer for Sanskrit; extended Nyaya-Vaisheshika ontology; and a search engine for Sanskrit, among others. The invited papers focus on lexicography, with special reference to Encyclopaedic Dictionary of Sanskrit on Historical Principles; some aspects of semantics in early India in understanding the meaning of words; and the computational database of Panini’s grammar. This collection, thus, is an important initiative in the filed of Sanskrit computational linguistics as it records insightful current trends in the field, making it a “must buy” for students, researchers, and all those interested in Sanskrit grammar.Printed Pages: 334. 100488

Monikulttuurisuus koetaan ja toisaalta sitä yritetään hallinnoida monikulttuurisuuspolitiikalla. Nämä ovat kaksi eri asiaa. Kenan Malik (s. 1960) paljastaa puheenvuorossaan, mikä multikulturalismissa ja sen arvostelussa on pielessä. Tutkija Pasi Saukkonen on kirjoittanut teokseen jälkisanat, joissa hän tarkastelee Malikin teosta kriittisesti ja täydentää sitä kuvauksella suomalaisesta monikulttuurisuuspolitiikasta.

19797 Malini Adiga
The Making of Southern Karnataka: Society, Polity and Culture in the Early Medieval Period, AD 400-1030
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2005; 8125029125; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
Southern Karnataka emerged as a regional entity between the fourth and eleventh centuries AD. Although interest in the nature of early medieval states and their social formations has defined much historical research since the 1970s, studies have, until now, been limited to clarifying only the political-dynastic history of the region. In this path-breaking new study, Malini Adiga reveals the political, social and cultural features that characterised the region. Its distinct identity is explored by examining the processes that created this political and cultural entity: the various social strata, the nature of the socio-political structure, the developments in the field of religion, and the manner in which the early medieval state patronised and utilised the various religious cults and sects to legitimise itself. Based on an extensive analysis of the inscriptions from the region and period under study, this book also drwas on the region's literary sources to explain its characteristic social ethos. Exhaustively researched, carefully analysed and richly descriptive, this book is essential reading for all those interested in early medieval Karnataka. Printed Pages: 464. 031542
