19801 Meadows Taylor
Confessions of a Thug
Asian Educational Services; New Delhi, India; 1998; 8120603303; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 22 Cm 
The Thugs were a secret society of highway robbers and murderers who struck havoc in India. So secret was the fraternity that they remained undetected for centuries till the labours of William Sleeman traced them out and destroyed them. The Thugs, usually disguised as a party of pilgrims, joined up with other caravans and at the opportune moment strangled the hosts and decamped with the spoils. Their method of killing was strangulation with a yellow scarf and they believed that their occupation had divine sanction. They had their own language - Ramaseena, and operated all over India. This book is the tale of a fictious Thug called Ameer Ali: even though the protagonist is ficticious, the novel is grounded firmly in fact and elucidates all the rites, customs and operations of this murderous clan in faithful detail.Printed Pages: 342. 102889

19803 Mechthild Guha
Danube, Ganges, and Other Life Streams
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8178243792; Hardcover; New; New; 
Of this short but deeply thoughtful memoir Mechthild Guha says: “It had never occurred to me that it would be possible to pack the memory of seventy years into a few pages. Nevertheless, out of an eventful and varied life, I have tried to select those aspects which not only speak of me but also the many people and places that make up my memories.” A lover of nature, cats, and solitude, Mechthild Guha’s sensitivity, humanity, and curiosity also make her an insightful observer. Among the many fine things about her account is her refusal to defer to reputation: in her observations and assessments there is always the assumption that social status is irrelevant, and she relates well only to those she likes as human beings.Printed Pages: 126. 101784

Exploring Medieval India: Sixteenth to Eighteenth Centuries (Vol. II: Culture, Gender and Regional Patterns)
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8125041044; Softcover; New; 
Probing different aspects of India’s society and culture, this volume comprises four thematic clusters—diverse forms of culture; gender and medievalism; patterns of transition; and region, regional formations and the Mughal Empire. A comprehensive introduction places the essays in perspective showing how the Mughal Empire remained composite, intricate and loosely-structured, perhaps hegemonic but over a disparate, divergent, energetic and lively economy and society. Focusing on culture in its diverse forms, section one brings to the fore the expansion of Persian as the language of power, the development of insha as a literary trend, the nuances of Mughal architecture, the importance of Mughal paintings and how they became a medium of recording the history of the Mughal empire, the various genres of music and their explicit manifestations of the gender politics. Concepts of love, the politics of marriage and reproduction, and the role of women within and outside the confines of the Mughal household, form the second section. The third section discusses the emergence of provincial and regional political configurations, the shifts in the Indian economy and traces the growing European influence in the rise of the East India Company. The last section contributes to the understanding of how and to what extent different geographical conditions determined the logistics of the outer frontiers of the Mughal empire, the importance of centralisation of authority around local rulers, the reasons behind Akbar’s territorial expansion, and the continued presence of pluralistic socio-cultural centres characterised by Hindu-Muslim symbiosis.Printed Pages: 518. 101950

Women in Malayalam Cinema: Naturalising Gender Hierarchies
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8125038655; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Drawing on contemporary critical theories and academic debates, Women in Malayalam Cinema: Naturalising Gender Hierarchies analyses Malayalam cinema and the question of women from different perspectives. In its focus on woman-cinema interface, as depicted in a century of Malayalam cinema, this book addresses a wide range of themes crucial for a nuanced understanding of Malayalam film culture—gender stereotyping, marriage and family, the aftermaths of matriliny, caste and gender relations, hegemonic patriarchy, female friendships and soft porn. These diverse concerns are held together by a key focal point: the paradox of regressive modernisation in Kerala’s cultural politics. While the widely discussed and extolled ‘Kerala Model’ has yielded much grist to the statistical mills of Left-liberal developmental sociologists, questions concerning more precise connections between the impressive developmental indices and the cultural politics that shape the lives and subjectivities of women within this ‘model state’ have remained relatively unexplored. Deconstructing patriarchal dominance in Malayalam cinema, mainstream and avant garde, this collection elucidates how films offer stereotypical images of women conforming to subordination. Be it Vigathakumaran (1928), or Sthree (1950), or a more recent one Achanarangathaveedu (2005)—there is a constant failure across films to look beyond the portrayal of woman as someone ‘who loves to cook and clean, wash and scrub, shine and polish for her man’. This volume, a first of its kind on Malayalam cinema, has diverse contributions from litterateurs, film critics and screenwriters, and will be of interest to scholars of film, media and gender studies.

Rama and Ayodhya
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8173054517; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 22 Cm 
This work briefly examines the antiquity of the Rama Katha and spread of the Rama cult over the Indian subcontinent in the context of claims of Left academics on its late popularity. Its main focus is the conflict at Ayodhya over the Ramjanmabhumi temple allegedly destroyed by the Mughal Emperor, Babar, in 1528. It examines the accounts of foreign travellers in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, and British administrator-scholars in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, which testify to Ayodhya’s continuing importance as a pilgrimage centre associated with Rama’s birthplace. The extended litigation over the Ramjanmabhumi/Babri Masjid in colonial times further attests to the persistence of the claims to the Janmabhumi. From the late 1980s, Left historians have been in the forefront of the campaign against the Rama temple. They have argued that Rama worship was an eighteenth-nineteenth century phenomenon and the present-day Ayodhya acquired its standing and identity only in the fifth century AD, during the rule of the imperial Guptas. According to Left academics, the identification of the Ramjanmabhumi in Ayodhya was “a matter of faith, not of historical evidence”. They also rejected any possibility of the Babri Masjid being built on the site of the Janmabhumi temple. Excavations by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) proved the inaccuracy of these assertions. And finally, the judgement of the Allahabad High Court (Lucknow Bench) marked a decisive moment in the dispute over the Janmabhumi. The writings of Left academics, the findings of the ASI, the extended arguments in the Allahabad High Court and its eventual verdict form the subject of this study.

Cultural History of Medieval India
Social Science Press and Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2007; 8187358300; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
Cultural History of Medieval India is a part of the series, Readings in History. The books in this series have been edited and put together by eminent historians for their students. This anthology of readings seeks to explore Indian culture in the medieval period through five themes: kingship traditions, social processes of religious devotion, inter-cultural perception, forms of identities, and aesthetics. Written by well-known scholars, the eleven essays in this book present sub-cultures in diverse regional settings of the subcontinent. The articles suggest that culture does not exist as fragments of the ‘great’ and ‘little’, or ‘classic’ and ‘folk’ in any given tradition. In fact, variants within a given tradition interact with one another and assimilate new characteristics over time. These interactions also take place across boundaries of different religious and cultural spheres, and in the process, give meaning to the notions of the ‘self’ and the ‘other’. In an attempt to define the ‘other’ one discovers the ‘self’. These readings introduce a new way of understanding medieval Indian history by engaging with interdisciplinary methods of research on issues that are significant to everyday existence in a plural society like that of India. This book will be of great value to students of history, as well as to other readers interested in the culture of the medieval period in India. Printed Pages: 300. 031446

Elusive Terrain: Culture and Literary Memory
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2008; 019569208X; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
Various strands exist in the tangled texture of our plural existence—language, translation, religion, politics, gender, caste, community, films, migration, and nostalgia for a lost home. Elusive Terrain weaves them together in thirteen essays addressing diverse issues pertaining to literature and culture in modern India. ‘Locality of Culture’, the first section, examines a few of these strands in the context of the present and looks at literary debates that cut across regional barriers in India. The essays in the second section, ‘Uses of the Past’, go back in time to inquire into aspects of religion, the construction of the nation, and forming of community identities that constitute our past. The concerns reflected in the volume are too elusive to be neatly labelled. Though written at different times, the essays are linked by the point of view of a bilingual Indian reader. Bypassing global categories like ‘postcolonial’ or ‘postmodern’ they look at the way ideas travel across language and region, and how cultural memory is selectively retrieved. 021615

'The trouble with my life is that it`s like a bra strap when you put your bra on wrong . . .` At twenty-five, life`s innumerable entanglements are getting to Arshi. Her blonde American step-mom`s trying too hard (she`s taken to welcoming guests with a traditional aarti). The gorgeous guy who has Arshi all flushed and dreamy doesn`t seem to be trying at all (he`s the Ice Prince who thaws at his own convenience). Her best friend Deeksha`s going to be married in a few months (Arshi`s still in the process of finding the correct labels for the men in her life). And, her otherwise unruffled, cocktail-concocting flatmate Topsy`s getting testier by the day because her conservative family will never approve of the darling guy she`s in love with. What`s more, there`s a cheating ex-boyfriend, a weepy neighbour and a heinous boss who need to be told where to get off. Her head spinning wildly with the sheer gravity of her life`s quandaries, Arshi realizes what she needs most now (besides a barrelful of alcohol and some serious postcoital cuddling) are just a few epiphanies of the right kind . . . Saucy, wise and audaciously candid, You Are Here introduces a bold and irresistible new voice. Printed Pages: 272. 024213

Who needs love? It only leads to trouble. Noor is having the worst year of her life. First her mother decides to leave her father. Then her dad's mother, the Horrible Old Crone, moves in to look after Noor (who's sixteen and doesn't need looking after, thank you very much). And she just knows the HOC is going to be mean about her mother because she never wanted her son to marry a Muslim. And now Noor has to attend some children-of-divorce thing after school and her gang canNOT find out. THEN she meets Ishaan. He's funny and nerdy, and likes all the same things she likes. Except love is stupid, as she's told everyone, and Ishaan isn't her type anyway. He wears glasses, participates enthusiastically in the lame children-of-divorce thing, and would rather read than play football in the break like all the other boys. Could love happen with someone who is the complete opposite of everything you've ever stood for? Can forgiveness squirm its way in with love? Printed Pages: 256. 107273

Children: Voyage into Problem Space
Abhinav Publications/Kaveri Books; New Delhi, India; 8170171814; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book is an outcome of the research work conducted for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy from the University of Delhi, Delhi. This work joins the new paradigm in Psychology, which is governed by the study of processes rather than products. It was heralded by the Information-Processing theory. The strategies evolved by the young school-going Indian children for voyaging through their perceived cognitive 'problem-space' towards solving a problem/making a decision were delineated and also analysed in terms of their psycho-sociological variables. The ingenious construction of the 'problem series' utilising indigenous materials is a significant contribution to the field of Cognitive Psychology where the lack of testing materials is strongly felt even today. The present research work points towards utilization of the science of Computer for psychological investigations. The importance of this work was internationally recognized when the author was invited to present it at the First Asian Regional Conference of the International Association for Cross Cultural Psychology, University of Hong Kong in March 1979.

Living the Body: Embodiment, Womanhood and Identity in Contemporary India
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8178299011; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This is a book about embodiment and identity in the context of particular women's lives in an urban setting. It is concerned with the development of a sociology of embodiment in the context of women's lives in contemporary, urban India. The focus on embodiment is mediated by gender and class, two critical elements that constitute identity in relation to embodiment. The study is based on material collected from interviews with working class women in an urban slum and with professional, upper class women, with young women in secondary schools and from material from a women's magazine. Apart from theoretical considerations, the book gives centrality to women's voice in the construction of her identity as an embodied being, located in particular socio-economic settings in urban India. The book also attempts to provide an understanding of resistance in the context of women's lives, both as a conceptual tool and a strategy in everyday life. Printed Pages: 216. 028105

Contested Spaces: Citizenship and Belonging in Contemporary Times
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8125040927; Hardcover; New; New; 
Individuals and groups negotiate increasingly complex relationships between the local, the national and the global. Contested Spaces: Citizenship and Belonging in Contemporary Times focuses on the everyday experience of divided or contested allegiances, and foregrounds the experiential, the embodied and the emotional, while also examining the social and the cultural. Divided into three sections, this volume is broadly grouped around the themes of exclusionary practices, experiences of identity, and gender. The first section opens with a powerful commentary on the practices deployed by the state to enforce adherence to a desired narrative of the nation-state. It goes on to show how the state uses the concept of ‘time’ in schooling practices as a means for the further marginalisation and exclusion of underprivileged subjects. It also demonstrates how immigrant and minority students experience processes of ‘othering’ in multicultural/ institutional context. In discussing the question of identity, the second section analyses the role of the state and shows how immigrants, seeking to establish a legitimate place for themselves, have to constantly grapple with their dual allegiance. Issues of identity are reflected in art as well as where the state plays a role in either promoting or modifying folk art. Aesthetics, as a result, become embroiled with politics when traditional tribal art and craft become politicised—it may be deployed in protest, or co-opted to facilitate assimilation. Section three variously examines the changing nature of masculinity in Sri Lanka and its relevance to the dynamics of conflict within the self and the nation; the Buddhist Medaw nuns of Myanmar, whose heightened asceticism to create an identity for themselves is co-opted by the state; and four films made by Muslim women in the West that seek to sensitise Western audiences about the war in Afghanistan by using an approach that valourises the West and denigrates Islam and Afghanistan.Printed Pages: 284. 102006

Conciousness Time and Praxis
New Bharatiya Book Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2007; 8183150608; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The essays on Consciousness and Time inspired evidently by different views in philosophy try to see how the intellectual edifices built in the other disciplines regarding these rest often on processes which formulate no established hypotheses about their origin, structure and nature. The debates and disputes continue as much as their inaccessible nature. The various viewpoints in the disciplines of physics and philosophy merely facilitate a direction that could possibly be taken for further investigation, at times, leading to yet another mystery. The notions and boundaries of our understanding however, have not allowed human activities to be complacent and hence, enquiries and explorations continue. The essay on Praxis discovers young Marx's discerning views on the other side of the economic theories that had baffled him for something. Interestingly, this concept of Praxis maintain similarity in perceptions that the Bhagavadgita has earlier brought out through 'niskama karma'.Printed Pages: 146. 104031

Women Writing Gender: Marathi Fiction Before Independence
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8178243369; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book tells the several stories of how Maharashtrian women found a ‘voice’ in the late nineteenth century. It shows how they created a literary space for themselves, deploying fiction to depict worlds other than those available in male writing, as well as dreams and aspirations unseen in society before they were articulated by their fiction. Having been excluded from mainstream prose, women also created a parallel reform discourse which displayed various shades of feminism. After an introductory overview of men and women writers of Marathi fiction before Independence, this book presents in translation the work of six iconic women writers: Kashibai Kanitkar, Indirabai Sahasrabuddhe, Vibhavari Shirurkar, Geeta Sane, Shakuntala Paranjpye, and Prema Kantak. Their novels and short stories unfold the journeys of articulate women towards new paradigms, and ultimately towards a demand for gender equality—which is women’s gift to Marathi literature.Printed Pages: 386. 101881

Nivedan: The Autobiography of Dharmanand Kosambi
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8178243253; Softcover; New; 
The autobiography of Dharmanand Kosambi (1876–1947), pioneering scholar of Pali and Buddhist Studies, is one of the most moving and spellbinding life stories ever written. Born in rural Goa, Dharmanand came under the spell of the Buddha’s teachings during his adolescence. At an early age he set off on an incredible journey of austere self-training across the length and breadth of Britain’s Indian Empire, halting to educate himself at places connected with Buddhism. His sojourns included living in Sri Lanka to master Pali, in a Burmese cave as a bhikshu, and in some viharas of North India—begging for monastic sustenance—as well as in Nepal and Sikkim which he reached after arduous, sometimes barefoot, treks. Over these itinerant years Dharmanand acquired such mastery of the Buddhist canon that he was variously appointed to teach and research at Calcutta, Baroda, Harvard, and Leningrad.Printed Pages: 204. 101917

Development and Nationhood: Essays in the Political Economy of South Asia
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0195667603; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
Renowned development economist, and peer, Lord Meghnad Desai has been one of the foremost observers of India and its economy in the last forty years. Passionately written and decidedly non-neutral in tone, his essays, collected here for the first time, constitute perhaps the most significant statement linking policy choices and outcomes on independent India. This volume retells the story of India as one of unexpected surprises and unfulfilled expectations. For four decades after independence, to the world around it, India epitomized under-performance swathed in a posture of moral arrogance. Scarcely a decade after being written off, India occupies an enviable place in the new global econo my. E ven so, acute problems of poverty, deprivation, and ethnic trouble still exist and India is yet to come to terms with several aspects of development and nationhood--the twin pillars of democratic societies. The essays in this volume explore issues as diverse as federalism and economic change in India, the imposition of Emergency, the rise of the BJP, communalism, socialism, the future of socialist planning and capitalist development, as also questions of nationality and the singular challenges presented by globalization. The collection offers a rich tapestry of South Asia's political and developmental impulses. The textured analysis will interest all students and observers of South Asia including social scientists, developmental economists, and historians as well as journalists, activists, policy planners, and other professionals.

The Book of Muhammad
Viking; New Delhi, India; 2001; 0670049778; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 12.5 Cms x 19.5 Cms 
Muhammad is the Prophet, the messenger of God. But for the vast majority of people outside the Islamic faith, he remains a mystery, and myths and misconceptions about him abound. Born in a time of moral despondency and despair, Muhammad spent his entire life trying to transcend human pettiness, searching for absolute values, the meaning of life and what it meant to be a human being. The Book of Muhammad recounts this journey—Muhammad’s early struggles to bring his message to the people in Mecca, the Revelation, his flight to Medina and the establishment of Islam and an ideal city-state there, and his triumphant return to Mecca. Mehru Jaffer’s own search to understand the teachings of Islam inform this lucid yet profound retelling of the life of one of the most mesmerizing figures to walk this earth, thereby making his teachings and spiritual significance accessible to all. In this short biography, Mehru Jaffer presents Muhammad as an extraordinary prophet and leader, a man of God who succeeded in uniting all of Arabia through his new faith and exerted enormous influence over centuries of human history. In her detailed introduction to the book she also examines why the fundamental tenet of his teachings—that to be a good human being is to be kind, compassionate and charitable—is particularly relevant in our troubled times today.

The Jerk Magnet
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 2012; 9789380828909; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
Chelsea's dad drops two bombs on the same night. One, he has a new job and they're moving! And, two, he's getting married! Chelsea groans --- and not too silently --- as she offers up plenty of outrageous disgust and does a pretty good job throwing a tantrum. Retreating to her room doesn't change the fact that within six weeks' time, she and her father will be relocating to San Jose, California, and soon thereafter welcoming Kate into their home as her new stepmother. Kate tries to understand Chelsea. She realizes Chelsea lacked self-esteem - problem similar to what she endured as a teen. The now-perfectly beautiful Kate takes on the task of giving Chelsea, her wardrobe and attitude a complete makeover. When Chelsea starts school after vacations, it's like she's a completely different person--at least that's how people are treating her. With lots of mistakes and some humbling mishaps, Chelsea begins to understand that even beauty has a cost of its own, and she does some real soul-searching about who she truly is (inside and out). The first book in Carlson's Life at Kingston High series is believable. She knows how to stir up those "wanting to be forgotten" moments of rejection and isolation everyone experiences, yet laces every heartache with hope, humor and lighthearted fun. This is a wonderful story for all ages, but highly recommended for teens. It will really make them think.Printed Pages: 217. 104881

Half of the words are read by implications." This Tibetan saying explains the main difficulty Westerners face in learning to read Tibetan fluently. Unlike previously available materials, this book will allow beginners to understand the logic of Tibetan grammar and syntax through graded reading and narrative explanations. The large glossary, which includes particles and is indexed by page, will serve as an invaluable reference for readers of Tibetan at all levels. The reading course includes the Tibetan alphabet and its pronunciation, as well as a wide range of modern literary styles from literature, history, current affairs, newspapers, and even communist political essays. Cassette tapes to assist students learning on their own are available through Case Western Reserve University's Center for Research on Tibet. "This [grammar] will make the study of written Tibetan a lot easier and more pleasant that it has been up to now."-James A. Matisoff, University of California, Berkeley. "The first really practical general grammar of the language."-F.K. Lehman, University of Illinois. Printed Pages: 516. 032862

English-Tibetan Dictionary of Modern Tibetan
Paljor Publications/Library of Tibetan Works & Archives; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789380359915; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 
The liberalization of political and intellectual life in China and the rise of Tibetan exile communities throughout the world have produced a resurgence of spoken and written Tibetan. These developments, together with increasing contacts between Western scholars and Tibetans, have created a widening circle of English-speakers-in government, business, academia, and elsewhere-who need to speak or write Tibetan with precision and clarity. For these people, and for Others who want to communicate with Tibetans in their own language, Professor Goldstein's Dictionary will be an indispensable aid.The first scholarly English-Tibetan dictionary, as well as the only one that is semantically sensitive, this work specifies the Tibetan terms that correspond to the submeanings of a single English term. Containing roughly 16,000 main entries, most of which have multiple subentries, the Dictionary treats a total of 45,000 lexical items. Each entry includes the written Tibetan orthography. Grammatical features are also noted, and all examples of usage are presented with both the Tibetan orthography and the romanization of the written Tibetan. An introductory essay familiarizes users with the main features of Tibetan grammar.Printed Pages: 363. 103685

The dictionary includes lexical items characteristic of the special written genre employed by Tibetan government officials up to 1959 but also lists new terminology used in the Tibetan exile communities in South Asia. It contains both the core lexical terminology found in everyday life and standard modern writing and many proverbs and sayings that appear frequently in contemporary literary materials. All entries include spoken pronunciation, and the dictionary provides thousands of illustrative sentences. Printed Pages: 1212. 032195

On the Cultural Revolution in Tibet: The Nyemo Incident of 1969
University of California Press; Los Angeles, California, USA; 2009; 0520256824; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 9.5 Cms x 16 Cms 
Among the conflicts to break out during the Cultural Revolution in Tibet, the most famous took place in the summer of 1969 in Nyemo, a county to the south and west of Lhasa. In this incident, hundreds of villagers formed a mob led by a young nun who was said to be possessed by a deity associated with the famous warrior-king Gesar. In their rampage the mob attacked, mutilated, and killed county officials and local villagers as well as People's Liberation Army troops. This groundbreaking book, the first on the Cultural Revolution in Tibet, revisits the Nyemo Incident, which has long been romanticized as the epitome of Tibetan nationalist resistance against China. Melvyn C. Goldstein, Ben Jiao, and Tanzen Lhundrup demonstrate that far from being a spontaneous battle for independence, this violent event was actually part of a struggle between rival revolutionary groups and was not ethnically based. On the Cultural Revolution in Tibet proffers a sober assessment of human malleability and challenges the tendency to view every sign of unrest in Tibet in ethno-nationalist terms.
