20206 Marilyn McCord Adams
Christ and Horrors: The Coherence of Christology (Current Issues in Theology: 4)
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2006; 0521866820; First Edition; Hardcover; Brand New; Brand New; 228 x 152 Mm 
Who would the Saviour have to be, what would the Saviour have to do to rescue human beings from the meaning-destroying experiences of their lives? This book offers a systematic Christology that is at once biblical and philosophical. Starting with human radical vulnerability to horrors such as permanent pain, sadistic abuse or genocide, it develops what must be true about Christ if He is the horror-defeater who ultimately resolves all the problems affecting the human condition and Divine-human relations. Distinctive elements of Marilyn McCord Adams' study are her defence of the two-natures theory, of Christ as Inner Teacher and a functional partner in human flourishing, and her arguments in favour of literal bodily resurrection (Christ's and ours) and of a strong doctrine of corporeal Eucharistic presence. The book concludes that Christ is the One in Whom, not only Christian doctrine, but cosmos, church, and the human psyche hold together. • Examines what it might mean for Christ to 'save' humankind from the worst kinds of dehumanizing experiences, and what this implies about his nature and work • Marilyn McCord Adams expertly marshals a wealth of biblical, patristic, medieval and modern sources to support her arguments • Provides a penetrating reassessment of central tenets of the Christian faith, ultimately reaffirming their philosophical coherence Contents Preface; 1. Christology as natural theology; 2. Posing the problems; 3. Sharing the horrors; 4. Psychologizing the person; 5. Recovering the metaphysics; 6. Learning the meanings; 7.

20209 Marina Budhos
The Professor of Light
IndiaInk/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8186399089; Softcover; New; 
The Professor of Light is the story of young Meggie Singh and her father, a charming, befuddled professor of philosophy from the Caribbean. Meggie grows from childhood to the brink of being an adult, groomed by her father in a rich mix of philosophy and storytelling, which illuminates the lost history of her family scattered over India, Guyana, America and England. Now older, she learns to recognize the scratch of his pen on paper, the curves of his thoughts, as he struggles to write a book on the nature of light. The paradox of light, both particle and wave, comes to resonate with the larger questions of identity and immigration, of belonging and moving on. Printed Pages: 254. 108496

Terijoen laukausten pitkä Kaiku: Mihail Herzensteinin murha toisen sortokauden Taustalla
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2016; 9522227404; New; 
Sata vuotta sitten Terijoen kylpyläpaikassa tapahtui suurta yhteiskunnallista huomiota herättänyt poliittinen murha. Venäläinen liberaalipoliitikko, duuman jäsen ja taloustieteilijä Mihail Herzenstein surmattiin 31. heinäkuuta 1906 kahdella revolverinlaukauksella. Tapahtumasta käynnistyi melkein kolme vuotta kestänyt oikeusprosessi, joka herätti huomiota sekä Venäjällä, Suomessa että monissa muissa maissa. Terijoen laukausten pitkä kaiku analysoi Herzensteinin murhan syyt ja seuraukset, jotka vaikuttivat omalta osaltaan Suomen ja Venäjän suhteisiin sekä Suomen autonomiaa vastaan kohdistuneeseen uuteen hyökkäykseen, joka sai maamme historiassa nimen toinen sortokausi. FT Marina Vituhnovskaja-Kauppala on dosentti ja luennoitsija Helsingin yliopiston Maailman kulttuurien laitoksella. Printed Pages: 357. 115358

In Search of an Entente: India and Italy from the XIX to the XX Century. A Survey
Italian Embassy Cultural Centre; New Delhi, India; 1994; 8121506484; First Edition; Paperback; New; New; 14 Cms x 21 Cms 
That the Italian Risorgimento worked as a powerful source of inspiration for the makers of modern India over the many decades, is a well documented fact. But this was not the only channel linking up India and Italy during those times. Italy, from her own part, had already developed a definite attitude towards India, her culture and present political situation, thanks to the works of social thinkers like Romagnosi and Cattaneo. Against this background, India's and Italy's search for an entente developed especially during the inter-war period-a period marked by crucial events, such as the rise of Fascism in Italy and the advent of the Gandhian leadership in India. A close look to these two decades reveals a fairly expanded network of relations, both individual and institutional. The role played by the Vatican is an interesting case in point, for the urge to spread Christianity among the Indian people made it necessary for Italian missionaries to establish a dialogue between the two cultures. These and other facets of Indo-Italian relations in modern times are for the first time brought home to the Indian public through this highly informative book, which presents the results of the Author's scholarly endeavor over the last few years, and which is bound to stimulate further discussion and research.

The Tales of the Ploughwoman (Folklore Fellows Communications 259)
Suomalainen Tiedeakatemia (Academia Scientiarum Fennica)/Bookstore Tiedekirja; Helsinki, Finland; 1996; 9514107829; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Tales of the Ploughwoman is a selection of folk narratives from Galicia in Northwest Spain. Both tales of wonder, realistic tales, funny stories, legends and jokes are clear exponents of woman’s “natural” supremacy. It is due neither to “poetic fiction” nor “female wishful thinking” when the woman in Galician tales is the heir of the kingdom and the heroine who can overcome all obstacles. Women appear in active heroe roles, as mother and ruler, as fairy or witch, while men constantly appear as victims, villains or clownish heroes. This is all the “natural order” in accordance with the cultural and economic female dominance that prevailed until very recently in those parts of rural Spain, as described in The World of the Ploughwoman (FFC 254). Over half of the tales are published here for the first time. They were collected by the author or by her husband, Gustav Henningsen, during their folkloristic fieldwork in Galicia respectively in the 1960s and 1970s. Translation from Galician/Spanish was undertaken by David Hohnen. Printed Pages: 154. 113898

Modern Migrations: Gujarati Indian Networks in New York and London
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8125044892; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
Although globalization seems like a recent phenomenon linked to migration, some groups have used social networks to migrate great distances for centuries. To gain new insights into migration today, Modern Migrations takes a closer look at the historical presence of globalization and how it organized migration and social networks. With a focus on the lives of Gujarati Indians in New York and London, this book explains migration patterns through different kinds of social networks and relations. Gujarati migration flows span four continents, across several centuries. Maritsa Poros reveals the inner workings of their social networks and how these networks relate to migration flows. Championing a relational view, she examines the kinds of ties prevalent in the different niches that Gujaratis occupy in the economies of New York and London, from shopkeepers to diamond dealers and doctors. In the process she speaks to central debates in the field about the economic and cultural roots of the causes of migration and its surprising consequences. Modern Migrations will be of interest to anyone who has thought about India’s rich history of trade and migration and the kinds of lives that Indian immigrants live in places like New York and London. It will be useful for students and scholars of migration studies. Printed Pages: 244. 037019

Korkeasti koulutetut Naiset
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2013; 9522224715; New; 
Korkeasti koulutetut naiset kertoo yhden naisjärjestön kautta naisten ja naisasialiikkeen historiaa. Suomen Akateemisten Naisten Liitto ja sen jäsenyhdistykset keskittyivät alkuvuosikymmeninä kannustamaan naisia opiskelemaan ja vaikuttamaan yhteiskunnassa. Se tehtiin verkostoitumalla ja nostamalla esikuvallisia naisia yleiseen tietoisuuteen. Kansainvälisten yhteyksiensä ansiosta liitto toimi 1960-luvun loppupuolelle saakka keskeisenä naisen asemaa koskevan keskustelun käynnistäjänä. 1970-luvun alun uusi radikaali naisliike kyseenalaisti vanhojen naisjärjestöjen toiminnan ja pakotti myös akateemiset naiset pohtimaan järjestönsä linjauksia. Laajamittainen toiminta ja yhdistysten monimuotoinen ohjelma vetivät kuitenkin puoleensa yhä uusia jäseniä. Printed Pages: 307. 117411

Ääniä ja Aänettömyyttä Palvelukentillä
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2017; 9527175291; New; 
Lasten ja nuorten osallisuus on haaste, joka tunnistetaan palvelukentillä yhä paremmin. Heidän mielipiteidensä kuunteleminen ja huomiointi on kaikkien viranomaisten velvollisuus. Käytännössä tämä oikeus tulla kuulluksi palveluiden piirissä toteutuu Suomessa kuitenkin vaihtelevasti. Ääniä ja äänettömyyttä palvelukentillä kokoaa yhteen lasten ja nuorten palvelukokemuksia koskevaa tutkimusperusteista tietoa ja tarkastelee sitä osallisuuden, yhdenvertaisuuden ja kohtaamisen näkökulmista käsin. Katsausta varten on käyty läpi 224 vuosina 2000–2016 julkaistua tutkimusta ja selvitystä, joissa lapset ja nuoret ovat päässeet ääneen kertomaan kokemuksistaan erilaisista palveluista. Katsaus kattaa sekä lapsille ja nuorille suunnattuja palveluja koskevaa tutkimusta että tutkimusta lasten ja nuorten kokemuksista kaikille ikäryhmille suunnatuissa palveluissa. Katsauksessa käsitellään myös erityisryhmille suunnattuja palveluita sekä nostetaan esille tutkimuksen aukkokohtia. Katsaus on toteutettu yhteistyössä Lapsi- ja perhepalveluiden muutosohjelman (LAPE) kanssa. Se tarjoaa tietoa palvelujen kehittämisen tueksi sekä kaikille lapsia ja nuoria koskevasta tutkimuksesta kiinnostuneille. Printed Pages: 119. 117430

Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2016; 9522228516; New; 
Pappilat ovat olleet esikuvia suomalaisissa kyläyhteisössä. Niiden arkkitehtuuri, taloudenpito ja puutarhat ovat vaikuttaneet monella tapaa maaseudun kehitykseen ja elinolojen parantumiseen. Monella paikkakunnalla pappila on ollut hengellisen ja henkisen elämän keskus, jonka vaikutus on vanhojen pappissukujen keskinäisten sukulaissuhteiden välityksellä ulottunut paljon paikallisyhteisöä laajemmalle. Suomalaiset pappilat esittelee edustavan kokoelman mielenkiintoisia pappiloita ja niiden asukkaita eri puolilla Suomea 1700-luvulta 1900-luvulle. Teos käy läpi pappiloiden sosiaalihistoriaa, kulttuurihistoriallista merkitystä, arkkitehtuuria ja puutarhoja. Teoksen näyttävän ja runsaan kuvituksen on koonnut Sirkku Dölle.

Bysanttilainen Triptyykki: Kolme esseetä Jumalansynnyttäjän Kuvasta
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 1997; 951710054X; New; 
Naistutkimus on nostanut maailmanhistorian ensimmäiset vaikuttajanaiset mielenkiinnon ja tutkimuksen kohteeksi. Neitsyt Maria on eräs syvimmin länsimaisten ihmisten mieliin vaikuttanut yksittäinen naishenkilö. Marja Tuomisen ensimmäinen essee tarkastelee tämän Efesoksen kirkolliskokouksessa kanonisoidun Jumalansynnyttäjän kulttuuri- ja kulttihistoriallista kuvaa ja sen taustaa neoliittiselta kaudelta varhaiskristilliseen aikaan nykyisen Turkin alueella. Toisessa esseessä tarkastelu laajenee tapa-, sosiaali- ja psykohistorian alueelle ja pohtii millaisia yksilöllisiä ja kulttuurisia, tiedostettuja ja piilotajuisia projektioita bysanttilaisesta Marian kuvasta voidaan etsiä. Kolmas essee keskittyy konstantinopolilaisen Khoran kirkon 1300-luvun alussa tehtyihin mosaiikkeihin ja maalauksiin ja Marian merkittävään rooliin niissä osana universaalia pelastushistoriaa.

Kuviteltu Aatelismies: Aateluus viholliskuvana ja itseymmärryksenä 1800-luvun Suomessa
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2010; 9522222259; New; 
1800-luvun nouseva sivistyneistö tarvitsi vastustajan määritelläkseen identiteettinsä ja oikeuttaakseen poliittisen nousunsa. Vanhempaa eliitin tyyppiä edustavaa ruotsinkielistä aatelia haluttiin syyttää vallitsevista yhteiskunnallisista epäkohdista, ja se nähtiin modernisaation, kansallisen yhtenäisyyden, demokratian, tasa-arvon ja emansipaation vastustajaksi. Teos tarkastelee 1800-luvun eliittien vallanvaihdosta, jossa avainasemassa oli kirjallisen kulttuurin nopea kehittyminen. Sivistyneistön luoma viholliskuva aatelista läpäisi tehokkaasti aikakauden julkisuuden niin kaunokirjallisuudessa, kansallisen historian kokonaisesityksissä, lehdistössä kuin valtiopäivilläkin.

Talo Helsingin ytimessä: Haartmanin puutarhasta kenraalien Taloksi
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2016; 952222703X; New; 
Epätavallisen runsaskoristeinen tiilitalo historiallisen Helsingin ytimessä, Liisanpuistikon reunassa on herättänyt uteliaisuutta ja antanut aihetta lukuisille tarinoille yli 130 vuoden ajan. Yleisessä tiedossa on ollut vain arkkitehti, Albert Mellin, sekä muurausvuosi 1884, joka on ikuistettu talon otsaan. Vuonna 1992 saneeratun talon uudet omistajat alkoivat kiinnostua kotitalonsa vaiheista, ja nykyisistä asukkaista pitkäaikaisin, Helsingin historian tuntija ja tietokirjailija Marja-Liisa Rönkkö tarttui aiheeseen. Muurien takaa paljastui arkkitehdin alun perin itselleen suunnitteleman talon monipolvinen historia. Myöhempiä omistajia ovat olleet mm. joensuulainen tukkukauppias P.P. Parviainen sekä Puolustusvoimat, joka sotienvälisenä aikana sijoitti taloon Ilmavoimien esikunnan. Talo Helsingin ytimessä kertoo tontin ja talon koko tarinan, joka samalla on Helsingin ja erityisesti Kruununhaan historia pähkinänkuoressa. Kaupunkikuvan, historiallisten tapahtumien ja merkkihenkilöiden rinnalle päärooliin on nostettu asukkaiden henkilöhistoriat. Printed Pages: 123. 115376

Ukki, minä olen nähnyt Himalajan
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2015; 9519380876; New; 
Ukki, minä olen nähnyt Himalajan katselee Etelä-Aasiaa ja tieteellistä kenttätyötä erityisesti naisen ja lasten näkökulmasta. Kirjan kirjoittanut Marjatta Parpola on kulttuuriantropologi, jonka kiinnostus Etelä-Aasiaa kohtaan syttyi, kun Marjatta lähti lapsineen miehensä, indologi, Asko Parpolan mukaan kenttätyömatkalle vuonna 1970. Marjatan kiinnostus paikallista kulttuuria kohtaan sai vastakaikua ja lasten ansiosta perheelle avautui ovia vieraanvaraisiin koteihin. Matkailijoiden silmiltä usein piiloon jäävä paikallinen elämä avautui perheelle näiden vierailujen kautta. Printed Pages: 181. 115180

Latvian Virolaiset
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2001; 9517463014; New; 
Tutkimus on ensimmäinen systemaattinen esitys Latvian virolaisten historiasta, kielestä ja kulttuurista. Latviassa on ollut kolmenlaisia virolaisia: alkuperäisväestöön kuuluneet leivut, ilmeisesti myöhemmin sotavankeina tuodut lutsit, sekä rajaseutujen ja Riian virolaiset. Virosta oli 1860-luvulta lähtien yhä enemmän muuttoliikettä nykyiseen Latviaan, josta oli vielä maata saatavissa. Nopeasti teollistuva Riika tarvitsi työvoimaa ja veti suurkaupungin mahdollisuuksineen puoleensa virolaisia viime vuosisadan alussa. Printed Pages: 213. 116573

Rakastuva keski-ikäinen mies etsii Itseään
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2012; 9529791852; New; 
Teos osoittaa, miten moraalifilosofian välineistöä voidaan soveltaa kaunokirjallisiin teksteihin. Analysoimalla romaanihahmojen tekemisiä on mahdollista kysyä, millaisia moraalisia ongelmia syntyy, kun parisuhteessa elävät keski-ikäiset heteroseksuaaliset miehet etsivät uudesta rakkaussuhteesta merkitystä elämälleen. Tutkimuksessa erilaisia tilanteita tarkastellaan moraalifilosofisesti, rakkausfilosofian ja lukijan näkökulmasta. Tutkimustulokset koskevat rakastumisen ja parisuhteen kysymyksiä sekä kaunokirjallisuutta eettisen analyysin tutkimusympäristönä. Printed Pages: 261. 114947

Suuri Sisarpiiri: NNKY-liike Suomessa 1890-luvulta 1990-Luvulle
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2006; 9517468148; New; 
NNKY-liikettä koskeva tutkimus kartoittaa, miten sukupuoli, yhteiskunnallinen toiminta sekä poliittiset ja uskonnolliset vakaumukset nivoutuivat toisiinsa. Samalla se osoittaa, miten kristillisten naisten järjestötoiminta muuttui yhteiskunnan demokratisoitumisen, itsenäisyyden, sotien ja modernisaation myötä. NNKY-liike oli uranuurtaja niin nuorisotyön, ekumenian, retriitti-liikkeen kuin feministiteologiankin saralla. NNKY:läiset puhuivat myös raittiuden puolesta, organisoivat kristillismielisiä vaaliliittoja ensimmäisten eduskuntavaalien alla, tekivät lähetys-, pakolais- ja kehitysyhteistyötä ja ylläpitivät lasten- ja vanhainkoteja.

Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2011; 9522222984; New; 
Keijukaisista kerrotaan eniten tarinoita Irlannissa ja Skotlannissa, mutta Suomessakin asuu perimätiedon mukaan monia keijukaislajeja. Keijukaisten laajaan sukuun mahtuu myös julmia, rumia ja varoittavia heimoja. Useimmat ovat kuitenkin kujeilunhaluisia ja huumorintajuisia juhlien, tanssin ja laulun ystäviä. Marjut Hjelt on koonnut keijukaisista kertovia vanhoja tarinoita ja keksinyt itse lisää. Jaana Aallon upeasti kuvittamissa kertomuksissa seikkailevat sekä eri puolilla maailmaa tunnetut keijukaiset että kotoisen suomalaiset männinkäiset, hittuset, hörviäiset ja pönttöhiittiset. Keijukaiset kertoo näiden harvoin nähtyjen olentojen asuinpaikoista, arjesta ja juhlasta sekä kohtaamisista ihmisten kanssa. 115059

Chinese Warfighting: The PLA Experience Since 1949
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2010; 9789380502168; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
Most discussion of China's military development and modernization tends to focus on traditional Chinese strategic thought, such as the applicability of Sunzi to modern conditions, or on the specifics and hardware of China's military modernization and the degree of danger this modernization might present. Both are interesting and essential to the understanding of China and the People's Liberation Army (PLA), but they are disconnected from the concrete details of the modern PLA warfighting experience. This book is a systematic study of modern China's military campaigns and the actual warfighting conducted by the PLA since the founding of the People's Republic in 1949. It provides a general overview of the evolution of PLA military doctrine and focuses on major combat episodes since the civil war with the Nationalists in the 1930s and 1940s to the last significant combat episode in Vietnam in 1979, and it also includes navy and air operations through 1999. Other topics discussed are military planning, command, and control; fighting and politics; combat tactics and performance; technological catch-up and doctrinal flexibility; the role of Mao Zedong; scale and typologies of fighting; and deterrence. The chapters are well grounded in fresh archival sources, and the contributors—a mix of scholars from mainland China, Taiwan, and the United State—have generated new insights and perspective.Printed Pages: 344. 104409

The Wisdom of Listening
Wisdom Publications; Boston, USA; 2003; 0861713559; First Edition; Paperback; New; 6 x 9 Inches 
The benefits of practicing true listening are very real. Through refining our listening skills, we not only understand just what to say; we also understand when not to say anything at all. We become more open, present, and responsive. In turn, we renew the sense of peace within ourselves. And the effects on our romantic, family, and professional relationships are undeniable. In The Wisdom of Listening, award-winning author, teacher, and trainer Dr. Mark Brady and contributors that include Ram Dass and A.H. Almaas, help us to develop the "listening warrior" inside us all. Inspiring and easy to follow, the lessons here can transform the ways that we interact with others, whether in a large meeting or in a face-to-face encounter. Listening is almost a lost art: some of us may have forgotten how to do it; some of us may have never quite learned. The Wisdom of Listening gives readers the skills to overcome our culture''s tendency towards distraction and reaction, and to be more fully Printed Pages: 350. 011024

Birds & People
Random House; 2013; 0224081748; Hardcover; New; New; 
There are 10,500 species of bird worldwide and wherever they occur people marvel at their glorious colors and their beautiful songs. We also trap and consume birds of every kind. Yet birds have not just been good to eat. Their feathers, which keep us warm or adorn our costumes, give birds unique mastery over the heavens. Throughout history their flight has inspired the human imagination so that birds are embedded in our religions, folklore, music and arts. Vast in both scope and scale, Birds and People explores and celebrates this relationship and draws upon Mark Cockers 40 years of observing and thinking about birds. Part natural history and part cultural study, it describes and maps the entire spectrum of our engagements with birds, drawing in themes of history, literature, art, cuisine, language, lore, politics and the environment. In the end, this is a book as much about us as it is about birds. Birds and People has been stunningly illustrated by one of Europes best wildlife photographers, David Tipling, who has travelled in 39 countries on seven continents to produce a breathtaking and unique collection of photographs. The book is as important for its visual riches as it is for its groundbreaking content. Birds and People is also exceptional in that the author has solicited contributions from people worldwide. Personal anecdotes and stories have come from more than 650 individuals in 81 different countries. They range from university academics to Mongolian eagle hunters and from Amerindian shamans to some of the most celebrated writers of our age. The sheer multitude of voices in this global chorus means that Birds and People is both a source book on why we cherish birds and a powerful testament to their importance for all humanity.

National Geographic 125 Years: Legendary Photographs, Adventures and Discoveries that Changed the World
National Geographic Society; Washington, DC, USA; 2012; 1426209576; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Featuring show-stopping imagery and thrilling behind-the-scenes tales, National Geographic 125 Years captures the heart of National Geographic's fascinating history, from its earliest days as a scientific club to its growth into one of the world's largest geographic organizations. The book reveals how much we've come to know about our fascinating world through the pages and unforgettable imagery of National Geographic, and taps key voices from the forefront of ocean and space exploration, climate science, archaeology, mountaineering, and many other disciplines to peer with us over the horizon and see where we are heading in the future. Organized thematically, chapters focus on major accomplishments in each of the three realms of Earth, Sea, and Sky (featured on the National Geographic flag). Author Mark Collins Jenkins will present the subject matter chronologically, focusing on great leaps forward that dramatically changed our understanding of the planet, from summiting Everest to landing on the moon to discovering Titanic. Sidebars will feature famous names including Jared Diamond, Sylvia Earle, Buzz Aldrin, Bob Ballard, Jane Goodall and more, contributing thoughts about big questions of exploration, key frontiers in research, and enduring mysteries. We'll ask beloved characters like Zahi Hawass whether or not there's anything left to be discovered in the Valley of the Kings; Paul Sereno if we'll be able to create a dinosaur from DNA; Jared Diamond when society faces the next "collapse;" and many more questions designed to be relevant for many years to come. The focus throughout the book will be on the impact the National Geographic Society has made on the world and how it has reported and reflected a dramatically changing planet, not an insider's account of internal affairs. Special galleries between each of the sections will focus on storytelling techniques pioneered by National Geographic, including photography, television, and digital reportage. These will offer behind-the-scenes glimpses at the process of telling the greatest stories on earth. Printed Pages: 383. 037506

National Geographic the Covers: Iconic, Photographs, Unforgettable Stories
National Geographic Society/Timeless the Art Book Studio; New Delhi, India; 2015; 1426213883; Hardcover; New; New; 24 x 29 Cm 
National Geographic The Covers is the definitive cover collection from the world's most beloved magazine. The magazine with the famous yellow border has been in publication for more than 125 years, and its vast array of cover stories have opened our eyes to a richly diverse world and taken us to places we only dream of visiting: deep within the rain forest, miles below the surface of the ocean, and into the farthest reaches of the universe. Captured by some of history's most gifted and innovative photographers, these covers tell a fascinating story of the last 125 years, one in which air power has advanced from the Wright Brothers to the Space Age; undersea exploration has evolved from awkward submersibles to sleek subs that can penetrate the ocean's deepest trench, and the natural world has transformed from a vast territory of exploitable resources into one in need of our protection. The Covers also reveals the captivating stories behind unforgettable images; from the piercing green eyes of the Afghan girl to the haunted, hunted gorillas of the Congo's Virunga Crater. Decade by decade, the covers chart our evolving understanding of global culture and the unfolding of international political events as they record groundbreaking discoveries and the enduring beauty of our natural world.Printed Pages: 382. 102803

A Journey in the World of the Tantras
Indica Books; Varanasi, India; 2004; 8186569421; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
The past thirty years have witnessed dramatic developments in the study of Agamic Saivism in general. Progress has been made on several fronts. On the one hand there has been a substantial increase in the historical and anthropological data. On the other, access has been cleared to vast reserves of unedited and unpublished sources. This Book is a collection of essays which document in their own way the author's personal journey in these years through parts of the Saiva and, to some extent, the Vaisnava Tantras. Anyone who has travelled on similar paths knows how vast and marvellous the lands of this extraordinary world are. Self-awareness, Own Being and Egoity studies the History of the notion that the one, unique reality which is equally Siva, the Self and all that appears and exists in any form, is pure, universal 'I' consciousness (ahamhhava). Abhavavada, the Doctrine of Non-being focuses on a little known doctrine taught in the Bhairava and Kaula Tantras that Siva, who is inherently beyond characterization, is Non-being. The Samvitprakasa is an important text for monistic Kashmiri Vaisnavism. Its author, date and teachings are the subject of chapter three. The Inner Pilgrimage of the Tantras deals with sacred geography. Sacred geography is not only divine. It is also human. It is more than physical, social or cultural geography. It is the geography of the land in which we live. It is not just about space or places, it is about our home. The more esoteric early Tantric cults were concerned with the roaming ascetic. But now the places he has to travel to are much increased in number. Moreover, they are no longer just simply called 'sacred lands'-ksetra-they are specific seats-pilhas-of deities and meeting grounds for male initiates and Yoginls, their female counterparts. The development of the sacred geography of India we witness in these sources is paralleled by that of their public, exoteric counterparts-the Puranas. Kubjika, the Androgynous Goddess and The Cult of the Goddess Kubjika deal with the secret goddess of the Malla kings, who ruled the inhabitants of the Kathmandu Valley up to about the middle of the 17'" century. The king's deity is that of his country and people. With two faces, the inner secret goddess and the outer public god, the king's deity transmits its energy and grace both in the outer domain and through the network of esoteric familial goddesses who, energies in their own right, are thereby inwardly charged. Thus the king, his goddess and his priest together are the axis of this inner secret society which, although close to its end, still survives today.Printed Pages: 315. 101264

Manthanabhairavantram, 14 Vols
Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts/D.K. Printworld (P); New Delhi, India; 2009; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Manthanabhairavatantram is about 24,000 verses long and is divided into three sections (kha??as). The one edited and translated here is the Kumarikakha??a. Along with the Kubjikamata, the Manthanabhairavatantra is the most important and extensive Tantra dedicated to the worship of the Goddess Kubjika. Although originally an Indian goddess, Kubjika is almost exclusively worshipped in the Kathmandu Valley, where her cult has been kept scrupulously secret by Newar initiates for centuries. Almost all the manuscripts of her Tantras and related literature have been found there. Kubjika is a powerful development of Malini, the principal goddess of the Trika Tantras and Kali of the Kashmiri Krama tradition. Her cult belongs to a chain of early Kaula systems that culminate with that of the Goddess Tripura and so sheds considerable light on them. Kuubjika’s unique historical importance is mirrored in the extraordinary richness of the inner, spiritual dimensions of her cult. These are explored in detail in the introduction to the edition and translation of the text with extensive references from mostly unpublished Kubjika Tantras and those of related schools. The work took close to two decades to produce. In this time numerous working editions of unpublished Tantras and related texts were prepared by the author with the help of a team of five trained assistants.Printed Pages: 5009. 101621

20299 Mark Tully
India in Slow Motion
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2003; 0143030477; First Edition; Paperback; New; New; 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
Mark Tully is incomparable. No foreign commentator has a greater understanding of the passions, the contradictions, the charms and the resilience that constitute India. In India in Slow Motion, Tully and his colleague Gillian Wright delve further than ever before into this nation of over one billion people, attempting to unravel a culture that, famously, has always resisted unravelling. India in Slow Motion is the account of a journey that for Tully and Wright has no true beginning or end. Covering a diverse range of subjects—from Hindu extremism to child labour, Sufi mysticism to the crisis in agriculture, the persistence of political corruption to the problem of Kashmir—this book challenges the preconceptions others have about India, as well as those India has about itself. India is often depicted as a victim of forces too wild to be controlled—of post-colonial malaise, of religious strife, of the caste system, of a corrupt bureaucratic machine. India in Slow Motion refutes this, probing into the heart of the Indian experience and arguing that change is possible and that solutions do exist. In the process it brings the country and its people brilliantly alive. Printed Pages: 320. 000570
