Rabindranath Tagore: A Pictorial Biography
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 8189738755; Hardcover; New; New; 
Rabindranath Tagore, a name very close to our hearts, evokes a feeling of pride, awe and inspiration and continues to arouse our curiosity to know more about this multi-faceted personality. Biographers have either tried to analyse his works in the light of his life or in the perspective of his contemporary time. This book chronicles the Poet’s contributions in the context of the period to which he belonged, bringing into light those incidents, anecdotes and issues which have often been overlooked but which nonetheless are significant as they enable us to understand Tagore better.His role as a son, brother, husband, father; his accomplishments as a poet, philosopher, writer, painter, choreographer, actor; his relations with his family, friends, contemporary writers and poets, as well as predecessors; his correspondences with the political leaders of his time within the nation as well as abroad; and above all, his interpretations about life, revealing his quest for love, faith and devotion and his deep-rooted anguish, his unfulfilled dreams and expectations as projected in the broad sweep of this lucid narration reveal two facets of the Poet—a man of extraordinary abilities yet a man having ordinary expectations, who could thereby understand the joys and sorrows of the common man keeping aside his own gains and losses. And it is for this reason that Tagore remains dear to all people cutting across boundaries, generations, caste, creed or sect.Printed Pages: 280 with 172 b/w photographs. 106516

20306 Nivedita Menon
Recovering Subversion: Feminist Politics Beyond the Law
Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8178240858; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
This books is about the relation between law and feminist politics. The area it traverses ranges from feminist initiatives on sexual harassment to the parity movement in France. Nivedita Menon addresses a particular dilemma for radical politics—in particular, feminist politics—in India. The dilemma has become visible over the last two decades and arises at the interface of radical political practice and the logic of constitutionalism. By 'constitutionalism' she refers to the specific method adopted by modern democracies of safeguarding the autonomy of the individual self. It is now generally recognised, however, that this objective is achieved by enforcing universal norms that marginalise and de-legitimise contesting worldviews and value systems. This particular method of organising democracies has a specific history and arose in a particular location—in Europe in the seventeenth century. By historicising this method, Menon shows us how, four centuries later, we live in a very different world. The dilemma that faces radical politics today is therefore what Menon terms the 'paradox of constitutionalism'. This occurs when various differing moral visions come up against the universalising drive of constitutionality and the language of universal rights. By examining three issues that the women's movement in India has engaged with—the practice of selective abortion of female foetuses, sexual violence, and reservations for women in representative institutions—Menon unfolds a two-pronged argument, namely that (a) the language of rights and citizenship is no longer unproblematically available to an emancipatory politics; and (b) that specifically in the context of feminist politics it has become increasingly difficult to sustain 'woman' as the subject of such a politics, despite (or perhaps because of) the explosion of 'gender' as a category of analysis in official state and NGO discourse. The book concludes by exploring the consequences of this understanding for feminist theory and practice. Printed Pages: 288. 031565

Critical Studies in Politics: Exploring Sites, Selves, Power
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8125052704; Hardcover; New; New; 
Critical Studies in Politics is a collection of essays that redefines the discipline of political science. It brings into view objects of study not normally visible to the discipline, through a creative engagement with other disciplinary formations. The volume is divided into four broad intersecting sections. The question of constructions of selfhood emerges as a central pre-occupation in the first titled ‘Exploring Selfhood'. The essays in this section--ranging from the modern Dalit self to the construction of the Asura over time--investigate the construction of the Self in the face of the Other; and looks at selfhood, not so much as a question of past cultural memory but as self-fashioning in the present. The second section--'Spatiality and Power'--analyses the idea of spatiality and explains its relationship with power. It discusses issues ranging from urbanisation and the politics of SEZs, to the entry of cinema halls in Delhi, and its implications for the formation of the 'public'. The third section titled 'State and Governmentality' examines state practices as they render legible various aspects of populations--from prison labour under colonialism to the organisation of official memory by the postcolonial state. 'Reconfiguring Categories of Thought'--the final section--seeks to unsettle conceptual categories such as 'capitalism', 'science', 'politics' and 'development'. Located in the 'interstices of disciplines', these essays by scholars from mainstream political science departments are at once contemporary and historical. This volume will be of interest to students and scholars of political science, film and culture studies, gender studies and anthropology.Printed Pages: 564. 101978

Solutions for the World's Biggest Problems: Costs and Benefits
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0521733146; First Edition; Paperback; New; 150 x 230 Mm 
The world has many pressing problems. Thanks to the efforts of governments, NGOs, and individual activists there is no shortage of ideas for resolving them. However, even if all governments were willing to spend more money on solving the problems, we cannot do it all at once. We have to prioritize; and in order to do this we need a better sense of the costs and benefits of each ‘solution’. This book offers a rigorous overview of twenty-three of the world’s biggest problems relating to the environment, governance, economics, and health and population. Leading economists provide a short survey of the state-of-the-art analysis and sketch out policy solutions for which they provide cost-benefit ratios. A unique feature is the provision of freely downloadable software which allows readers to make their own cost-benefit calculations for spending money to make the world a better place.

Barriers
The MIT Press; Cambridge, Massachussets, USA; 1997; 0262530678; Sixth Printing; Paperback; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
This monograph explores several complex questions concerning the theories of government and bounding, including, in particular, the possibility of a unified approach to these topics. Starting with the intuitive idea that certain categories in certain configurations are barriers to government and movement, it considers whether the same categories are barriers in the two instances or whether one barrier suffices to block government (a stricter and "more local" relation) while more than one barrier inhibits movement, perhaps in a graded manner. Any proposal concerning the formulation of the concept of government has intricate consequences, and many of the empirical phenomena that appear to be relevant are still poorly understood. Similarly, judgments about the theory of movement also involve a number of different factors, including sensitivity to lexical choice. Therefore, Chomsky proceeds on the basis of speculations as to the proper idealization of complex phenomena - how they should be sorted into a variety of interacting systems (some of which remain quite obscure), which may tentatively be put aside to be explained by independent (sometimes unknown) factors, and which may be considered relevant to the subsystems under investigation. Barriers considers several possible paths through the maze of possibilities that arise. It sets the subtheory context (x-bar theory, theory of movement, and government) for determining what constitutes a barrier and explores two concepts of barrier - maximal projection and the minimality condition - and their manifestations in and implications for proper government, subjacency, island violations, vacuous movement, parasitic gaps, and A-chains.

Pluto Press/Aakar Books; New Delhi, India; 074533234X; Softcover; New; 
How do we understand the ethics of humanitarian intervention in today’s world? After Western intervention in Libya's civil war this new edition of A New Generation Draws the Line provides timely answers. In a new chapter on recent interventions Chomsky dissects the meaning of the 'right to protect' principle. Other chapters examine the West’s uses and abuses of 'humanitarian intervention' including detailed studies of East Timor and Kosovo.The actions of Muammar Gaddafi and the trial of Serbian military commander Ratko Mladic have re-energised narratives about the role of the 'civilised' West. In this book, Chomsky deploys his forensic method - asking the difficult questions the West would prefer to avoid. Printed Pages: 184. 111694

New Horizons in the Study of Language and Mind
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2000; 0521658225; First Edition; Paperback; New; 228 x 152 Mm 
New Horizons in the Study of Language and Mind is an outstanding contribution to the philosophical study of language and mind, by one of the most influential thinkers of our time. In a series of penetrating essays, Chomsky cuts through the confusion and prejudice which has infected the study of language and mind, bringing new solutions to traditional philosophical puzzles and fresh perspectives on issues of general interest, ranging from the mind-body problem to the unification of science. Using a range of imaginative and deceptively simple linguistic analyses, Chomsky defends the view that knowledge of language is internal to the human mind. He argues that a proper study of language must deal with this mental construct. According to Chomsky, therefore, human language is a ‘biological object’ and should be analyzed using the methodology of the sciences. His examples and analyses come together in New Horizons in the Study of Language and Mind to give a unique and compelling perspective on language and the mind. • Written by Noam Chomsky, one of the most influential thinkers of our time • Explores the concept that knowledge of language is internal to the human brain (i.e. the concept of innate language) • Offers new solutions to - and fresh perspectives on - traditional philosophical puzzles and issues of general interest in the study of human language and the mind Contents Foreword by Neil Smith; Preface; Acknowledgements; 1.

The Divinity of Krishna
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1984; 8121501199; First Edition; Cloth; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
This book deals with the extremely popular theme of Krishna. This is a thorough and thoughtful analysis of a subject of importance both to Sanskrit literary history and to the history of Hindu religion. Tracing an interesting and important span in the history of the religions of Krishna, this book studies the development in the understanding of Krishna's divinity as depicted, in his biography in the Harivamsa, the Visnupurana and the Bhagvatapurana. Each of these texts come from a different century; and each shows a distinct attitude towards its subject, attitudes that might be reduced to the terms hero worship orthodox piety and mystical love. It is in the analysis and comparison of these attitudes that the distinct contribution of the present book lies. After analysing how these three texts in their treatment of the very same episodes in the life of Krishna paint a progressively more divine portrait of Krishna, the book traces the evolution of philosophical and theological concepts concerning Krishna. Thus the understanding of Krishna's divinity, while a mere sapling in the Harivamsa, grows in the Visnupurana and attains to full maturity in the Bhagavata. Printed Pages: 196. 001262

Land Revenue Administration Under the Mughals (1700-1750)
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1989; 8121504775; Second Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
The Mughal Empire of the great Mughals always evoked stock images of splendour, and scores of authors wrote volumes on it. But only a dedicated few like Dr. Noman Ahmad Siddiqi took enormous pains to analyse and interpret the infrastructure of the Mughal Empire-the contemporary land administration and agrarian institutions. In this book, Dr. Siddiqi probes into the conflicting, but not mutually exclusive, rights and interests involved in the landholdings under the Mughals. With Clarity and understanding, he analyses the administrative practices of the Mughals. Referring to a mass of patiently collated data, Dr. Siddiqi shows how the Mughal administration sought to lessen or resolve the contradictions inherent in the land-revenue system. The stability of the Mughal government, the oriental extravaganza of power and the magnificence of the successive emperors, all, Dr. Siddiqi holds, rested on the success of agrarian administration-the base of the many-splendoured Mughals. This well-documented study delineates the decline of the Mughal opulence that came in the wake of a breakdown in the land administration. The overwhelming increase in the number of jagirdars, who claimed shares in the surplus produce, accelerated the pace of disintegration. Dr. Siddiqi's treatment of the working of the institutions of the zamindari, revenue-assignments and revenue-free-grants is characterised by the unyielding objectivity of a trained historian. His exposition of the social and economic role of the zamindars and madad-maash holders is a valuable contribution to our understanding of the land-relationship in the Mughal Empire.

Violence, Martyrdom and Partition: A Daughter's Testimony
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2009; 0195699343; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
This book presents the oral testimony of Subhashini (1914–2003), the woman head of a well-known Arya Samaj institution devoted to women’s education in rural north India. Subhashini’s narrative unfolds a story, within a sea of stories, which has remained silent in the dominant historical discourse. Her memory evokes contrasting images of violence, martyrdom and Partition. Not 1947 but 1942—the year of her father’s ‘martyrdom’—is recalled as a violent rupture in her memory. Partition is a moment of celebration, revenge, divine retribution, empathy, remorse, tragedy and fear. Translating Subhashini’s oral testimony, Nonica Datta recreates the memory of a colonial subject, living in postcolonial times, as a historical narrative. Moving beyond a historical event and well-established historical facts, Violence, Martyrdom and Partition is a parallel history of events and non-events, memory and history, testimony and experience. Breaking the silence of an oral testimony and presenting memory as history, this work opens up the historians’ territory. This testimony defies the opposition between subject and agent, victim and victimizer, witness and survivor, aggressor and spectator, perpetrator and bystander. Subhashini’s candid, repetitive narrative suggests a remarkable interplay of individual and collective remembrance, and reveals the shifts, ambiguities, silences and contradictions in an individual memory. 026924

My God is a Women
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 2012; 818976652X; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
An innocuous article in a magazine lands nine-year-old Safia Mehdi in the world of purdah. Her father gets her married to Abbas Jafri, son of the famous Jafri family of Lucknow. Abbas is a barrister and author of a controversial book. Safia’s father hopes that she would be able to bring back her deviated husband to ‘God’s true faith’. Ironically, Abbas who dreams of a liberated India where women enjoy equal rights as men, leads Safia to break free from the stereotype of a traditional Muslim woman. Set against the tumultuous period of pre-Independence, the husband-wife duo embarks on a journey, elucidating the way to a progressive nation. However, just when everything seems alright, Abbas is issued a fatwa for confronting the Imam, preaching inequality between men and women. His Marxist Party too ostracizes him for criticizing the Shariat for the sorry state of the Muslim women in the country. Consequently, Abbas is killed by Muslim fanatics and Safia is left all alone to fend for herself and her daughter.With time, Safia gains grit and common sense. Armed with her forth righteousness and sheer belief in her 'power' of being a woman, Safia walks on, championing the cause of women empowerment. But does she manage to bring about that much-awaited change or falls a victim to the repressive dogmas of the society? Can she help the Muslim women to step forward, wrench their tightly closed fingers open and set out to build a world to suit their destiny? Can women become the God that they were always meant to be? My God is a Woman tries to seek answers to some of these questions.Printed Pages: 306. 104755

Denied by Allah: Angst Against Archaic Laws of Halala, Triple Talaq, Mut'ah and Khula
Vitasta Publishing Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789382711582; Softcover; New; 
Facing the indignity of having to sleep with a stranger just to return to a husband who has pronounced Triple Talaq in a fit of anger; running from pillar to post to end a marriage by begging for Khula, Denied by Allah is a book that mirrors stories of women for whom even God does not seem to have mercy. These are women who have opened the windows of their bleak, painful lives in these pages; some surviving Mut'ah (pleasure), a temporary marriage, eq­uivalent to prostitution.This book discusses medieval laws irrelevant in the 21st century, sexist biases that pass for conventions, life impacting decisions made only by men which have denied women basic respect and protection, dignity and humaneness, often in the name of religion. The book asks, what has the community gained by keeping half of its population backward, ill-educated, chained to archaic laws, unwell and deprived? And how long will the laws for Muslim women in democratic India remain the same as in any Shariah-governed country? Printed Pages: 160. 107208

Meena Kumari: The Poet, A Life Beyond Cinema
Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8174369678; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Meena Kumari was not only an iconic star of Hindi cinema, she was also a poet of great flair and delicacy. This book contains a compelling selection of her poems in the original Urdu and in brilliant English translations by Noorul Hasan. Haunting, crystalline and precisely observed, Meena Kumaris poetry reveals a side of her personality that was rarely on display in her films. It proves beyond any doubt that she was a much more sensitive and self-aware woman than her fans tend to realize. With a selection of critical and biographical material on Meena Kumari, including a concise introductory essay in which Daisy Hasan and Philip Bounds argue that much of Meena Kumaris poetry can be read as a barbed critique of Indian popular culture, this book is an essential reading for all her many admirers.Printed Pages: 160. 037861

Tuberculosis in India: A Case of Innovation and Control
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2015; 812505961X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 22 Cm 
India is the country with the highest number of patients with active tuberculosis (TB). Emerging drug resistance poses a huge threat, but migration, urbanisation, poverty and the complexity of public and private healthcare challenge the control efforts as well. Innovation for TB control is urgently needed and is often imagined as providing new drugs, diagnostics and vaccines. In this book, Nora Engel argues that innovations of services, organisations, strategies and delivery mechanisms are crucial too. In a unique analysis on how innovation for TB control is practised, this book provides extensive coverage of four cases of innovation in public TB control in India: the involvement of private sector players, the emerging policy responses to multidrug resistant TB, the development of new diagnostic technologies and of new treatment guidelines. The book asks how diverse actors (public and private health providers, patients, activists, researchers and policymakers) engaged in TB control in India are balancing innovative activities with ongoing control work. This shows that innovation for TB control is not a linear process of improvement, but rather a complicated, continuous undertaking, in which different perspectives and practices often clash. How can innovation be fostered without jeopardising the control efforts? And how is an infectious disease to be controlled without stifling innovation?Using approaches from science and technology studies (STS), innovation studies, medical anthropology and sociology, the book provides suggestions on how innovation and control could be balanced, and offers a relevant and unique contribution to the literature on innovation in global health and on TB in India.Printed Pages: 281with b/w illustrations. 102274

20355 Norbert Peabody
Hindu Kingship and Polity in Postcolonial India
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 8175963662; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Through the analysis of eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century texts on the Hindu Kingdom of Kota in Rajasthan, Norbert Peabody explores the ways in which historical consciousness, or memory, is culturally constructed and how this consciousness informs social experience. By building on the premise that no society receives the past in a transparent, universal and objective way, he unravels how the past in Kota has been fashioned. His analysis demonstrates how different styles of historical interpretation sustain different regimes, and how specific varieties of social and political activity are founded upon these different perceptions of the past. In this way, he suggests that different societies not only establish different co-ordinates of value in their constructions of the past, but also that the very processes of social and political transformation differ from society to society. This is a fascinating and challenging book which promises to become a classic in the field. Contents 1. The King is dead, long live the King!: or Karmic Kin(g)ship in Kota 2. In whose turban does the Lord reside?: Kings, Saints, and merchants in Western India 3. Military fiscalism and the cultural economy of devotion in eighteenth century Rajasthan 4. From ‘Royal Service’ to ‘maternal devotion’ during the Jhala Regency: Local politics at the end of the Old Regime 5. An incidental history of a supplementary article: Hindu Kin(g)ship and early Colonial rule. Printed Pages: 206 with 9 halftones, 5 figures, and 2 maps. 027110

Folk Tales of Tibet
Paljor Publications/Library of Tibetan Works & Archives; New Delhi, India; 2000; 8185102260; Reprint; Softcover; New; 
Folk Tales occupy an important place in Tibetan literature and often enrich the genre with their flavour and originality. But folk tales have remained unwritten and unrecorded. As such these fascinating tales have remained stored in the memories and were transmitted orally from generation to generation. In the process, a folk tale undergoes numerous changes, both gaining and losing a lot of their flavour. They are delightful nevertheless and never cease to surprise us with their store of princesses and witches: Dogs and demons and frogs and mirgos intermingled in an innocently evil world of their own. It is only in exile that Tibetans have taken up the important work of recording and documenting the many facets of Tibetan civilisation, including the folk tales.Printed Pages: 181. 103629

Al-Qaida's Doctrine for Insurgency
Vij Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2009; 819042856X; Hardcover; New; New; 
Osama bin Laden’s words carry a great deal of weight in the West. When he speaks, or allegedly speaks, we listen. But what about the words of other key leaders in the Al-Qa'ida terrorist network? We can learn how to conduct the war on terrorism more successfully when we study their own manuals, written for their followers. But few Americans, despite their expertise in intelligence or security, know Arabic.Fortunately Norman Cigar is fluent, and here he presents the first English translation of Abd al-Aziz al-Muqrin’s “A Practical Course for Guerrilla War.” Saudi security forces killed Al-Muqrin, Al-Qa'ida’s leader in the Arabian Peninsula, in June 2004. Published posthumously, his Arabic-language manual provides a window into Al-Qaida’s strategic thinking and into how these terrorists operate. Accompanying the text’s translation is material on al-Muqrin’s life and Cigar’s cogent and detailed analysis of the key ideas in the jihadist’s doctrine and the results of Al-Qa'ida’s insurgency efforts on the Arabian Peninsula.This important work provides a primary source for students in the professional military education system who want to read a variety of military thinkers and develop insights into all warfighting philosophies, especially those emanating from non-Western sources. Academics, think tank analysts, and government officials in the United States and abroad will also find the work relevant to their own work on Al-Qa'ida and insurgency theory.

Reaching Your Potential

You are greater than you think you are. No matter who you are or how old, once you begin to see yourself as an exceptional person, your potential begins to blossom.That’s the truth. Our life is what we make it.Dare to be yourself. There has never been anyone quite like you. Imitation is suicide, wrote Ralph Waldo Emerson in his famous essay on self-reliance.Be the person you always wanted to be. It makes no difference how unfavourable your situation, how little training, or money or status you have to begin with. The great question is what you do with the little you have.Think constructively. Remember you can decide yourself into failure and unhappiness, or success and happiness.Unleash your potential. Five years from now you will be precisely what you think over the next five years.

Zen Words for the Heart: Hakuin's Commentary on the Heart Sutra
Shambhala Publication/TBI; New Delhi, India; 1996; 1570621659; Softcover; New; 
Hakuin Zenji (1689-1769) was one of the most important of all Japanese Zen masters. His commentary on the Heart Sutra is a Zen classic that reflects his dynamic teaching style, with its balance of scathing wit and poetic illumination of the text. Hakuin's sarcasm, irony, and invective are ultimately guided by a compassion that seeks to dislodge students' false assumptions and free them to realize the profound meaning of the Heart Sutra for themselves. The text is illustrated with Hakuin's own calligraphy and brush drawings. Printed Pages: 112. 111029

20392 Norman Yoffee
Myths of the Archaic State: Evolution of the Earliest Cities, States, and Civilizations
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2005; 0521521564; First Edition; Paperback; Brand New; 17.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
In this ground-breaking work, Norman Yoffee shatters the prevailing myths underpinning our understanding of the evolution of early civilisations. He counters the emphasis in traditional scholarship on the rule of ‘godly’ and despotic male leaders and challenges the conventional view that early states were uniformly constituted bureaucratic and regional entities. Instead, by illuminating the role of slaves and soldiers, priests and priestesses, peasants and prostitutes, merchants and craftsmen, Yoffee depicts an evolutionary process centred on the concerns of everyday life. Drawing on evidence from ancient Mesopotamia, Egypt, China and Mesoamerica, the author explores the variety of trajectories followed by ancient states, from birth to collapse, and explores the social processes that shape any account of the human past. This book offers a bold new interpretation of social evolutionary theory, and as such it is essential reading for any student or scholar with an interest in the emergence of complex society. Contents 1. Evolution of a factoid; 2. Dimensions of power in the earliest states; 3. The meaning of cities in the earliest states and civilizations; 4. When complexity was simplified; 5. Identity and agency in early states: case studies; 6. The collapse of ancient states and civilizations; 7. Social evolutionary trajectories; 8. New rules of the game; 9. Altered states: the evolution of history. Printed Pages: 292. 009429

The Geographical Dictionary of Ancient and Mediaeval India
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1984; 817069017X; Fourth Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 23 Cms x 29 Cms 
Bimala Churn Law's Geography of Early Buddhism fulfils the long and acutely felt need for such a work; for many of the topographical features, both real and imaginary described in ancient literature, exist no longer. Early Pali literature, Jataka tales, Asokan inscriptions and the account of Chinese pilgrims contain much geographical information along with a mass of other details. All these scattered facts are collected and arranged here in a systematic manner so as to bring out a coherent geographical picture of ancient India. The chapters are so planned as to bring out clearly the various physical features like boundaries, towns, cities, lakes, rivers and mountains of the five regions-Middle, North, West, South and East-in which India is traditionally divided. The countries-Ceylon, Burma and others which adopted Buddhism later-are also described. A note on Cetiya and a map, showing the important kingdoms, cities, rivers and mountains known in that dim and distant past, are added. Printed Pages: 278 with 1 map. 000360
