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 On the other, access has been cleared to vast reserves of unedited and unpublished sources.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

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

History of the Finnish Church
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2016; 9522227323; New; 
A History of the Finnish Church is the first general survey in English of the history of the Finnish church. It is based on recent research, but written in a clear and accessible style. It presents a continuous narrative of the church in Finland, from the arrival of Christianity to the present day. While the church in Finland developed essentially along the same lines as in other Nordic countries, there are some unique aspects deriving from Finland’s location between East and West. Some distinctively Finnish responses to processes of modernisation and secularisation have left their mark on Finnish culture and society. Markku Heikkilä is Emeritus Professor of Practical Theology at the University of Helsinki, and Simo Heininen is Emeritus Professor of Church History at the University of Helsinki.

Perestroika: Process and Consequences
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2010; 9522221821; New; 
In this book, Perestroika is approached as an evolutionary process that led to unintended consequences, the breakdown of the Soviet Union. But perestroika and glasnost were transnational processes and consequently they did not have consequences only in the Soviet Union. Perestroika had a profound influence on all of Eastern Europe and to some extent on Western Europe. Moreover, we can’t understand many features and processes of current Russia if we don’t know the history of the Soviet Union. It is obvious that many structural and institutional solutions of current Russia go back to the Soviet era and the power struggle between President Yeltsin and Parliament in the beginning of nineties.

Uskontotieteilijä Rafael Karsten tutki Etelä-Amerikan intiaanien elinoloja ja varsinkin uskontoja. Tutkimusmatkojensa huipentumana Karsten sai osallistua ensimmäisenä tutkijana jibaro-intiaanien pääkallonmetsästyksen voitonjuhlaan Ecuadoriin vuosina 1916–1919 tekemällään matkalla. Tuohon aikaan vaati suurta sitkeyttä ja uskallusta lähteä tutkimaan täysin tuntemattomia oloja toiselle puolelle maapalloa. Karstenkin menetti välillä sekä tutkimustuloksensa että muun omaisuutensa, olipa vähällä menettää henkensäkin. Karstenin tutkimusmatkojen tuloksena oli vielä tänäänkin paikkansa pitäviä uskontotieteen ja antropologian perusoivalluksia. 115253

Vernadoc 2005
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2006; 9519660267; New; 
It is not possible to protect the built vernacular environment and to maintain the local building traditions only by governmental money or regulations. More important is that the people will understand the worth of their tradition and they are proud of it. The architects can point, that the local tradition is very practical, clever and beautiful and the people have had capacity to create beauty and they really can be proud of their environment and buildings. Especially the international actors can point, that the local traditions are widely respected. In the summer 2005 the vernacular committee of Icomos Finland arranged an international project following these ideas. Printed Pages: 50. 114207

Vieraskieliset lapset eteläisellä Pohjanmaalla
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2017; 952716723X; New; 
Lastemme hyvinvointi on ensiarvoisen tärkeä asia. Siitä viime kädessä riippuu tulevaisuutemme. Tässä tutkimuksessa keskitytään vieraskielisiin lapsiin ja nuoriin, eli heihin, joiden juuret ovat muualla kuin Suomessa. Nyt he asuvat täällä ja ovat osa paikallista lasten ja nuorten yhteisöä. Lisäksi he ovat nopeasti kasvava joukko sekä lukumääräisesti että suhteellisesti. Taustastaan johtuen heillä kuitenkin on omanlaisiaan haasteita, joiden tunnistamiseen tämä tutkimus tähtää.Tutkimuksessa selvitetään lasten ja nuorten elämässään kokemaa hyvinvointia, ikäviä kokemuksia, voimavaroja ja jaksamista, kiinnittymistä paikallisyhteisöön, minäkuvaa, onnistumisen kokemuksia ja tulevaisuuden suunnitelmia. Lapsia ja nuoria tarkastellaan niin kasvatusjärjestelmän osana kuin vapaa-ajallaankin, osana omaa perhettään ja osana vertaisryhmäänsä. Tutkimus toteutettiin eteläisellä Pohjanmaalla, eli Etelä-Pohjanmaan maakunnassa ja Vaasan kaupungissa. Printed Pages: 175. 114714

Elokuva-Tarkastuksen Synty Suomessa (1907-1922)
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 1999; 951710118X; New; 
Sensuurilla ja ennakkotarkastuksella on aina huono kaiku, sillä niillä pyritään rajoittamaan tai estämään jotakin. Mutta miksi sensuuria sitten ylipäätään on ja kuka sitä tarvitsee. Tämä kirja antaa vastauksen siihen miksi ja milloin elokuvia ryhdyttiin tarkastamaan etukäteen myös Suomessa. Samalla kirjasta selviää miten Suomen tarkastushistoria poikkeaa kansainvälisestä kehityksestä. Elokuvatarkastus sidotaan osaksi laajempaa suomalaista yhteiskuntaa. Tarkastushistoria osoittaa, että elokuvatarkastuksen synty on sidoksissa laajempaan yhteiskunnalliseen keskusteluun, jonka juuret ovat 1880-luvun Suomessa. Kirjassa on elokuvatarkastuksen syntyvaiheiden lisäksi selvitetty varhaiskauden elokuvan kehitystä. Printed Pages: 231. 114996

Liiku oikein-voi Hyvin
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2001; 9518982627; New; 
Parhaimmillaan liikunta tukee aidosti terveitä elämäntapoja ja antaa ihmiselle hänen kaipaamaansa vaihtelua ja vahvistaa hänen selviytymistarinaansa. Liikunnan merkitystä hyvän elämän tukena on toistaiseksi aliarvioitu. Kuntoutuksen näkökulmat ovat olleet kapeita eikä liikunnan mahdollisuuksia ole aiemmin tunnistettu. Huippu-urheilun ja psyykkisen hyvinvoinnin yhteyksistä on esitetty myyttisiä ja jopa erheellisiä tulkintoja. Tähän teokseen professori Markku Ojanen on tiivistänyt hyvän elämän ja liikunnan keskeiset yhteydet. Teos on vankka käsikirja kaikille liikunnan ja terveydenhuollon ammattilaisille ja opiskelijoille sekä muille kiinnostuneille. Printed Pages: 215. 116871

Talouskasvu ja kestävä Kehitys
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2013; 9514111044; New; 
Taloudellista kasvua tarvitaan köyhyyden poistamiseen, eriarvoisuuden vähentämiseen ja hyvinvoinnin kasvattamiseen köyhissä, kehittyvissä maissa. Materiaalisen kulutuksen kasvu on aiheuttanut luonnonvarojen ehtymistä, ympäristön pilaantumista ja globaalin ilmastonmuutoksen, jotka uhkaavat hyvinvoinnin kasvua tulevaisuudessa. Hyvinvoinnin kestävän kehityksen varmistamiseksi tarvitaan muutoksia energian ja luonnonvarojen käytössä, tuotanto- ja kulutustavoissa sekä kansainvälisessä ympäristöpolitiikassa. Erimielisyyttä on siitä, kuinka tarvittavat muutokset voidaan käytännössä toteuttaa ja pitäisikö jo rikkaiden kehittyneiden maiden luopua kokonaan talouskasvun tavoittelusta. Taloudellisen kasvun teoriaan perustuvan näkemyksen mukaan tämä ei ole tarpeen. Koska teknologian kehitykselle ei ole ylärajaa, ei myöskään talouskasvulle ole periaatteessa rajoitteita, vaikka luonnonvarojen määrä maapalolla on rajallinen. Printed Pages: 59. 117328

Satelliittipaikannus kertoo kattavasti paikannuslaitteiden toiminnasta, järjestelmistä, koordinaateista ja laskennasta. GPS on jo lähes jokaisessa älypuhelimessa, mutta miten satelliittipaikannus toimii ja miten uusia paikannusjärjestelmiä käytetään? Tarkka ja luotettava paikkatieto on yhä keskeisemmässä asemassa niin maankäytön suunnittelussa, itseohjautuvassa liikenteessä kuin mannerlaattojen liikkeiden seurannassakin. Satelliittipaikannus on yliopistotason oppikirja, josta riittää luettavaa myös kaikille muille paikannuksesta ja globaaleista paikannusjärjestelmistä kiinnostuneille ja niitä työssään käyttäville. Erityinen huomio on kiinnitetty satelliittipaikannuksen käyttöön Suomessa ja suomalaisiin koordinaattijärjestelmiin. Professori Markku Poutanen on työskennellyt GPS­-paikannuksen parissa 1980-­luvun lopulta lähtien ja opettaa aihetta yliopistossa. Hän on ollut määrittelemässä ja luomassa nykyisiä Suomessa käytettäviä koordinaattijärjestelmiä ja on Euroopan koordinaattijärjestelmiä käsittelevän EUREF-komission puheenjohtaja.

Tuttua Lemmentouhua: Johdatus rakkauskertomusten poetiikkaan, historiaan ja Filosofiaan

Tuttua lemmentouhua on ensimmäinen suomenkielinen tutkimus rakkaustarinoiden historiasta, kerrontakeinoista ja tulkintatavoista. Sen tavoitteena on selittää, mihin tarvitsemme tarinoita turhankin tutulta näyttävästä lemmentouhusta ja miten romanttiseen rakkauteen on alettu liittää tiettyjä oletuksia, jotka näkyvät yhä iskelmämusiikissa, elokuvissa, kirjallisuudessa – ja arkisessa puheessamme. Teos esittelee rakkaustarinoiden estetiikkaa aikakausittain ja pohtii viihderomanssin muutoksia viimeisen vuosisadan aikana. Printed Pages: 261. 116145

Liikkumattomuuden jäljillä
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2017; 9527175356; New; 
Liikunnan hyötyjä pidetään kiistattomina. Silti monet päätyvät jo nuorella iällä elämäntapaan, johon ei kuulu liikunnan harrastaminen. Miksi liikunta ei kiinnosta tai miksi aiempi innostus hiipuu? Millaisia liikuntakokemuksia vähän liikkuvilla nuorilla on ollut elämänsä eri vaiheissa? Miten liikuntasuhde muuttuu lapsuudesta aikuisuuteen tultaessa? Tässä tutkimuksessa muun muassa näihin kysymyksiin etsitään vastauksia laajan kyselyaineiston ja elämäkerrallisten haastattelujen avulla.Sekä kyselyaineisto että liikuntaelämäkerrat tuovat esiin vähäisen liikkumisen monet syyt samalla kun ne osoittavat, että vähän liikkuvaksi nuoreksi ja nuoreksi aikuiseksi voidaan päätyä hyvin erilaisten elämänvaiheiden seurauksena. Lisäksi tutkimus osoittaa liikunta-aktiivisuuden vaihtelevan merkittävästi eri elämänvaiheissa. Tutkimus nostaa näin esiin monia liikuntasuhteeseen ja sen muutoksiin liittyviä ilmiöitä ja tekijöitä, jotka ovat suomalaisessa liikuntatutkimuksessa jääneet toistaiseksi vähemmälle huomiolle. Kirja on suunnattu kaikille liikunnan ja liikkumattomuuden ilmiöistä kiinnostuneille. Printed Pages: 172. 116854

Teos nostaa laajaan lähdepohjaan perustuen esiin kysymyksen kaupankäynnin yhteiskunnallisesta vaikuttavuudesta ja liike-elämän yhteyksistä politiikkaan. Liike-elämän ja politiikan yhdistämisestä innostuneet afäärifennomaanit politisoivat liike-elämän kielitaistelun aikana. Kaupan politisoituminen johti kahden keskenään kilpailevan kauppaleirin syntyyn. Uusi suomenkielinen yrittäjyys haastoi Suomen kauppaelinkeinoa hallinneen ruotsinkielisen eliitin. Kehkeytyi valtataistelu, jossa keinoja ei kaihdettu. Printed Pages: 286. 114929

Kun kansa leikki Kuningasta: Suomen suuri lakko 1905
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2009; 9522221414; New; 
Vuoden 1905 suurlakko alkoi Suomessa Venäjän sortotoimia vastustaneena kansanliikkeenä. Lakkoliike laajeni meillä nopeasti vapaushuumaksi, jossa vaadittiin sananvapautta, kokoontumisvapautta, työntekijöiden oikeuksia ja lopulta lähes kaikkea mahdollista hyvää kaikille. Lakko päättyi sekavissa, ristiriitaisissa ja uhkaavissa tunnelmissa. Lakosta muodostettiin aikalaisille kolme hyvin erilaista kokonaiskuvaa; perustuslaillinen, suomettarelainen ja työväen lakkokuva, jotka noudattivat näiden poliittisten liikkeiden usein lakon jälkimainingeissa lakosta muodostunutta tulkintaa.

The Cambridge Companion to Jesus
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 0521796784; Paperback; New; 
This Companion takes as its starting point the realization that Jesus of Nazareth cannot be studied purely as a subject of ancient history, ‘a man like any other man’. History, literature, theology and the dynamic of a living, worldwide religious reality, all appropriately impinge on the study of Jesus. The two parts of the book roughly correspond to the interdependent tasks of historical description and critical and theological reflection. It incorporates the most up-to-date historical work on Jesus the Jew with the ‘bigger issues’ of critical method, the story of Christian faith and study, and Jesus in a global church and in the encounter with Judaism and Islam. Written by seventeen leading international scholars, the book encourages students of the historical Jesus to discover the vital contribution of theology, and students of doctrine to engage the Christ of faith as Jesus the first-century Jew.

Suomen Keskiajan Kivikirkot
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2014; 9522226009; New; 
Teoksessa esitetään uusimmat tiedot ja tulkinnat kaikista Suomen kivikirkoista, jotka rakennettiin tai joiden rakentaminen alkoi keskiajalla. Kirjassa käsitellään maakunnittain jokainen kirkko omana kokonaisuutenaan. Aluksi selvitellään kristinuskon tuloa paikkakunnalle ja seurakunnan perustamista sekä puukirkkojen aikakautta ennen kivikirkkojen rakentamista. Kivikirkon keskiaikaiset piirteet kuvataan sekä ulkoa että sisältä. Havainnollisten pohjakaavojen avulla lukija hahmottaa helposti sen, mitä vanhoja osia kirkosta on hävinnyt ja mitä niihin on lisätty uudella ajalla. Keskiaikainen sisustus ja koristelu ovat olennainen osa kirjan sisältöä. Kirkko kirkolta tarkastellaan niiden nykyajan näkökulmasta omaperäinen ja vaikuttava keskiaikainen sisustus kalkkimaalauksineen, kuoriaitoineen, alttarikaappeineen, pyhine esineineen, teksteineen ja kirjoineen.

Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts/ Institute Francaise De Pondichery, Pondichery-I; New Delhi, India; 1996; 0971-3085; Hardcover; New; New; 
This uniquely detailed study of the most wooded districts in India-North Canara (Uttara Kannada) in the Western Gha?s, Karnataka, reveals that economic stake as well as a conservation agenda were at the centre of the British forest policy in the area. The study also argues that one of the most destructive consequence of colonial intervention was the disruption of social organization, which was originally closely linked to the environment. In understanding these socio-economic changes, one may find some answers to the challenge of contemporary attempts to reconcile the needs of the local communities with the conservation of a vulnerable environment.Printed Pages: 249. 101667

When one thinks about pairing and cooking with alcohol, it is always another beverage that comes to mind, never whisky! This book seeks to redress that. Single malt whisky is the very essence of Scotland. Even the words roll off the tongue with portent of the pleasure to come. Its complex and intriguing-a concatenation of geology, topography and maturation with a unique sense of place.Deep, complex, powerful and eternally fascinating, these pinnacles of the distillers art are one of lifes unrivaled pleasures yielding an unmistakable flavor. We believe that The Glenlivet stands head and shoulders above the others and once you have used this book, so will you. The recipes have all been created by chefs of extraordinary talent. Some recipes use whisky in the cooking process; others have been paired with the optimum one from our range of The Glenlivet. Each chef has presented us his best, most time-tested recipes for the cuisine he knows best. Thus, we have Spanish, American, British, French, Thai, Italian, Scandinavian and Lebanese recipes, each having a mix of finger foods, molecular gastronomy, main courses, starters and desserts. We cannot promise that every one of them will be equally easy, but we can guarantee that very soon you will be cooking like the masters. This book is as valuable to have on your own bookshelf as it is to gift to a bon vivant.Printed Pages: 144. 104845

Tajikistan’s: Difficult Development Path
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789381904961; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
TAJIKISTAN TEETERS ON THE BRINK OF FAILURE. This mountainous and landlocked country, the poorest in Central Asia, confronts the challenges of good governance and economic survival. These domestic struggles become even more problematic as international forces prepare to withdraw from neighboring Afghanistan, leaving Central Asian countries to ensure regional stability. In Tajikistan’s Difficult Development Path, Martha Brill Olcott traces the political, economic, and social change following the country’s independence and international efforts to avert state collapse. The Tajik government’s commitment to reform has been inconsistent, and substantial foreign assistance provided since the end of the country’s civil war has not led to the desired economic and political development.Printed Pages: 464. 104274

In the Whirlwind of Jihad
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789381904848; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
In Uzbekistan, Central Asias most populous country, Islam has been an ever-present factor in the lives of the people and a contentious force for political officials trying to build a secular and authoritarian government. In the Whirlwind of Jihad examines the intertwined and evolving relationships between religion, the state and society in Uzbekistan from the late 1980s to today, encompassing the period from the collapse of the Soviet Union to the launch of the U.S.led war on terror in neighboring Afghanistan. Martha Brill Olcott, the foremost expert on Central Asia, concludes that in an era of global communication and increased contact with international Islamic communities, a new role for Islam in Uzbekistan will ultimately emerge with implications beyond the countrys borders.Printed Pages: 430. 104293

"Folk culture, the perennial substratum of the sophisticated metropolitan culture, takes many lively and colourful forms. This is particularly true in India. This book is a study of one such expression of the folk culture obtained in South Kanara, India. It is not one of those dry academic studies usually made by foreign scholars. For the authors, the book has been a passionate involvement in a traditional art form YAKSHAGANA. The American authors have put down their experience with the hope that the reader will enjoy an imaginary trip to South Kanara, a walk through the fields and a thrilling night of Yakshagana. 108073

The Royal Temple Theater of Krishnattam
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8124608369; Second Revised and Enlarged Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 19 x 25 Cm 
Krishnattam, a unique Sanskrit ritualistic dance-theater of Kerala, is one among India’s treasure trove of rare living artistic masterpieces. In time past, Krishnattam, based on the Sanskrit poem Krishnagiti by the Zamorin King Manaveda, thrived in the royal environment of the Kingdom of Calicut, receiving the adoration of small devoted audiences. But, with India’s independence, the Zamorin lost his kingdom, and as his wealth dissipated, Krishnattam teetered on the edge of extinction. It was the Krishna-Vishnu Temple at Guruvayur that came to Krishnattam's rescue and has become an integral part of the history of Krishnattam. Here, again, Krishnattam remained in seclusion until 1961, when the troupe performed in Bombay, exposing it to a larger Indian audience and foreign interest.This history-travelogue takes one along in the dark of night to experience the Krishnattam plays, with their rituals and preparations, as the performers in fantastic, colorful costumes, dance, and mime the story of Lord Krishna's life to the accompaniment of vocal and instrumental music.This volume, richly illustrated, makes one meet some people, who have been the soul of Krishnattam. The actor-dancers share the quirks of fate, the severity of training schedule, and the rigor of exercises that transformed them from village children into performers. Currently, Krishnattam thrives at Guruvayur Temple, together with ample outside performances, as a devotional votive offering.The first author takes one along on her twenty-year journey to discover the history and attractions of this art so rarely performed outside its locale in south India. Co-authors, Robert Sikora, A. Purushothaman and A. Harindranath greatly enhance this edition with their new researches, translations and photographs. Printed Pages: 317 with 46 plates. 110939

Creating Capabilities: The Human Development Approach
Orient BlackSwan/Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8178243296; Hardcover; New; New; 
If a country’s Gross Domestic Product increases each year, but so does the percentage of its people deprived of basic education, health care, and other opportunities, is that country really making progress? If we rely on conventional economic indicators, can we ever grasp how the world’s billions of individuals are really managing? In this powerful critique, Martha Nussbaum argues that our dominant theories of development have given us policies that ignore our most basic human needs for dignity and self-respect. For the past twenty-five years, Nussbaum has been working on an alternative model to assess human development: the Capabilities Approach. She and her colleagues begin with the simplest of questions: What is each person actually able to do and to be? What real opportunities are available to them? The Capabilities Approach to human progress has until now been expounded only in specialized works. Creating Capabilities, however, affords anyone interested in issues of human development a wonderfully lucid account of the structure and practical implications of an alternative model. It demonstrates a path to justice for both humans and nonhumans, weighs its relevance against other philosophical stances, and reveals the value of its universal guidelines even as it acknowledges cultural difference.Printed Pages: 256. 101827
