20601 Mihir Rakshit
Macroeconomics of Post-reform India
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2009; 0195697065; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
This book and its companion volume Money and Finance in the Indian Economy bring together essays written over the last fifteen years by eminent economist Mihir Rakshit. The essays cover practically all major macroeconomic developments in India in the process of transition from a Plan to a market-oriented economy. These essays focus on the overall behaviour of the economy, that is, the genesis of and lessons from the 1990–91 payments crisis that led to the adoption of a comprehensive reforms programme; the different phases of post-reform macroeconomic development and the series of puzzles surfacing therein; the nature and sustainability of services-led growth; and the analytical-cum-policy issues relating to inflation arising from oil price or other shocks. The author provides a survey of the current state of mainstream macroeconomics and discusses its application to the Indian context. He emphasizes the significance of agriculture, infrastructural bottlenecks, absorption of labour in the unorganized sector, and large-scale financial dualism as particularly important in the Indian context. Using such a framework casts new light on the main drivers of the Indian macroeconomy, underlines its major sectoral interlinkages, and helps draw analytical and policy conclusions that are often sharply at variance with the conventional wisdom or widely held beliefs. 024967

20602 Mihir Rakshit
Money and Finance in the Indian Economy
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2009; 0195696980; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
This book and its companion volume Macroeconomics of Post-reform India bring together essays written over the last fifteen years by eminent economist Mihir Rakshit. The essays cover practically all major macroeconomic developments in India in the process of transition from a Plan to a market-oriented economy. The focus of the essays in this volume is on the problems and policy concerns emerging in particular sectors. The issues discussed relate to the transition from a situation of credit constraint to one of excess liquidity; the source of fiscal imbalances and the measures for their correction; economic and policy implications of FCI’s excess food stocks and the rapid build-up of foreign exchange reserves; the pros and cons of foreign institutional investments (FIIs); and the strengths and weaknesses of the banking system under the liberalized regime. The problems and issues addressed in these essays are diverse, and so is their focus and emphasis. However, the unifying factor is their analysis that draws on a macro-theoretic framework appropriate to the Indian economy. 024970

20603 Mihir Shah & P.S. Vijayshankar (Eds)
Water: Growing Understanding, Emerging Perspectives
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8125062920; Softcover; New; 
For decades after independence, Indian planning ignored the need for sustainability and equity in water resource development and management. There was just one way forward, that of harnessing the bounty in our rivers and below the ground, and this strategy had almost completely unquestioned acceptance. It was only in the 1990s that serious questions began to be raised on the wisdom of our understanding and approach to rivers. Around the same time, the sustainability of our strategy of groundwater development under the Green Revolution also began to be interrogated. Printed Pages: 576. 110983

Habitat suitability modeling of boreal biodiversity: Predicting plant species richness and rarity
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2011; 9514294521; New; 
The work described in this thesis aimed to determine the main environmental variables which predict the variation in plant diversity patterns in boreal landscapes (NE Finland) using existing and readily available environmental data sources and different habitat suitability modeling methods. Species distribution models were built using occurrence records of 28 threatened vascular plant species and 17 ecologically relevant environmental variables based primarily on generalized additive modeling (GAM). The results showed that the meso-scale distribution patterns of rare boreal vascular plants are strongly associated with favorable thermal and moisture conditions as well as with stressful, low temperatures. 114412

Verkostoitu Tieto
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2003; 9517464665; New; 
Kirjassa arvioidaan kysymystä, mitä informaatioteknologian kehittyminen ja nopeutunut tiedonkulku ovat merkinneet 1800-luvun kaupankäynnille Suomessa. Tutkimus perustuu kauppias Carl Magnus Dahlstömin kirjeenvaihtoon, joka avaa poikkeuksellisen näköalan kansainvälisiin kauppatuttavien verkostoihin, tiedonvälityksen käytäntöihin ja liiketoiminnan arkeen. Tiedonkulun kehittymisen kannalta 1800-luku on erityisen kiinnostava jakso. Teknologiset innovaatiot nopeuttivat kirjeiden välitystä, mutta suurin merkitys oli kuitenkin lennättimellä. Tutkimuksessa kysytään, miten tiedonkulun huima nopeutuminen muutti suomalaiskauppiaiden asemaa globalisoituvassa taloudessa. Printed Pages: 207. 115926

Kauppias, kaupunki, Kruunu: Turun porvariyhteisö ja talouden organisaatio varhaiskeskiajalta 1570-Luvulle
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2000; 9517462026; New; 
Turku oli keskiajalla Suomen tärkein kaupunki, jonka porvarit harjoittivat säännöllistä ulkomaankauppaa 1200-luvulta alkaen. Turkulaisten kaupalliset yhteydet ulottuivat Pohjanlahden rannikolta Tallinnaan, Danzigiin ja muihin merentakaisiin hansakeskuksiin. Mika Kallioisen tutkimus keskittyy analysoimaan erityisesti porvareiden muodostaman yhteisön merkitystä epävarmuuden vähentämisessä. Päähuomio on raatiorganisaatiossa. Tutkimuksessa tarkastellaan Turun porvariyhteisöä myös sosiaalihistorialliselta kannalta. Printed Pages: 344. 115980

Vähemmistövaltiokirkon Synty
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2010; 9525031594; New; 
Mika Nokelaisen tutkimuskohteena ovat J. K. Paasikiven hallituksen ortodoksisesta kirkosta 1918 antama asetus sekä eduskunnan säätämät hallitusmuoto 1919 ja uskonnonvapauslaki 1923. Pureutumalla näiden säädösten syntyprosessiin ja sisältöön Nokelainen osoittaa, miten Suur-Suomi-ajattelu ja aikakauden muutkin poliittiset virtaukset vaikuttivat ortodoksisen kirkon saamaan asemaan. Lisäksi tutkimuksesta käy ilmi, millaisia hankaluuksia syntyi, kun venäläistä kirkkohallintojärjestelmää ja ortodoksien ylikansallista lainsäädäntöä noudattavaa kirkkoa alettiin sovitella itsenäisen Suomen muotoutumassa olevaan uskontolainsäädäntöjärjestelmään.

"Me inkerikot, vatjalaiset ja karjalaiset"
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2007; 9517469608; New; 
Inkerinmaan ortodoksinen väestö jakaantui 1600-luvun lopulla suomensukuista kieltä puhuneisiin inkerikkoihin ja vatjalaisiin sekä venäläisiin. Ruotsin uskonnollisen yhtenäisyyden ihanteen mukaisesti heistä oli tehtävä kuninkaan luterilaisia alamaisia. Tehtävään valittiin Narvan superindententti Johannes Gezelius nuorempi ja Inkerinmaan kenraalikuvernööri Göran Sperling. Heidän suorittamansa käännytysyritykset saivat aikaan ortodoksirahvaassa vastarintaa, jonka kautta voidaan tutkia erilaisten ryhmäidentiteettien rakentumista Inkerinmaan rajaprovinssissa.

Seagull Books; Kolkata, India; 2005; 81-046-196-0; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 14 Cms x 28.5 Cms 
"Dylan has burrowed into our flesh and lodged in our minds . . . his words, images, tunes have been swimming through my head, rising up from the depths at unexpected moments. The electric violin on desolation row. The pill box hat that balances on her head just like a mattress balances on a bottle of wine. Breadcrumb sins . . . the ghost of electricity howling in the bones of her face. The orphan crying like a fire in the sun. Her amaican um and how she did come. The hard rain forever falling. The answer forever blowin’. . ." Chimes of Freedom tells the story of an irascible individual artist in a period of great social upheaval, a mass movement for social change—and the complex, often tortured relationship between the two. Re-establishing Dylan’s sixties’ master works in their historical context, the book sheds new light on both the songs and the era that produced them. Printed Pages: 392. 031330

Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2007; 9519040277; New; 
The research presented in this book focuses on corpus linguistic observations of common-number pronouns from the 16th century to the present day, investigating the processes of change in pronominal agreement patterns in two closely-related common-number structures, one anaphoric and one cataphoric. This research illustrates (dis)similarities in the variant frequencies in these structures and explores the types of sociolinguistic generalisation which can be made concerning this particular change.

Ibn Sina Und Die Peripatetische ,,Aussagenlogik"
E.J. Brill; Leiden, The Netherlands; 1989; 9004084878; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
Das Buch geht von dem heute angenommenen Stand der Wissenschaft aus: die Peripatetiker brachten eine Terminuslogik zustande, während die stoische Logik eine Aussagenlogik war. Sie standen feindlich einandern gegenüber. Der Verfasser, mit Hilfe eines Textes Avicennas, wo er die Lehre der hypothetischen Syllogismen behandelt, versucht zu beweisen, dass auch die Peripatetiker eine, von der Terminuslogik nicht in jedem Hinblick losgelöste Aussagenlogik hatten, und diese peripatetische Aussenlogik wurde under dem Namen "hypothetische Syllogismen" in den griechischen Quellen erwähnt. Die zerstreuten Bermerkungen der Griechen über die hypothetischen Syllogismen lassen sich im Lichte des Textes Avicennas in einem neuen Sinn deuten. Die klassischen/griechischen und lateinischen/ Quellen, wenn wir sie richtig deuten, und wenn wir die versammelten Bruchstücke der Lehre richtig zusammenstellen, zeigten uns das ganze, von dem stoischen abweichende System der peripatetischen Aussagenlogik. Man kann aber nicht nur die ganze Theorie rekonstruieren, sondern auch die Geschichte der peripatetischen Aussagenlogik, von Theophrast bis zu unserem Jahrhundert. Printed Pages: 266. 004976

Pyhä istuin, Puola ja Itä-Galitsian: puolalais-ukrainalaiset jännitteet 1921-1931
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2015; 9525031802; New; 
Ensimmäisen maailmansodan lopputuloksena oli Eurooppa, joka sulki sisäänsä varjoja entisistä imperiumeista, niiden raunioista muodostettuja uusia valtioita sekä monia kohtaloonsa ja asemaansa tyytymättömiä vähemmistöjä. Yksi uusista valtioista oli Puolan toinen tasavalta. Valtauskonnoltaan roomalaiskatolisen Puolan rajat sulkivat sisäänsä Itä-Galitsian kolme miljoonaa kreikkalaiskatolista ukrainalaista. Heidän vastahakoisuutensa tunnustaa Puolan ylivalta Itä-Galitsiassa ja puolalaisten pyrkimykset painostaa heitä lojaaleiksi kansalaisiksi johtivat 1920- ja 1930-luvuilla jatkuviin jännitteisiin, jotka heijastuivat myös uskonnolliselle kentälle. Tutkimuksessa analysoidaan Pyhää istuinta ohjanneita periaatteita Pius XI:n paaviuskauden aikaisissa puolalais-ukrainalaisten jännitteiden synnyttämissä ongelmatapauksissa. Tutkimus antaa perusteellisen kuvan Pyhän istuimen päätöksentekoon vaikuttaneista periaatteista, toimintatavoista ja paavillisen diplomatian arkipäivästä Puolan jännittyneessä tilanteessa.

The Adventures of Rama
Mapin Publishing; Ahmedabad, India; 2010; 8189995332; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 19 x 25 Cm 
To rid the world of the evil, ten-headed Ravana, the Hindu god Vishnu appears on earth as a heroic prince, Rama. The devotion of his brother Lakshman, his marriage to the beautiful Sita, and encounters with demons, giants, sages, and holy men form favorite episodes familiar to any Hindu child. Taken from the holy text, the Ramayana, these stories conclude with Rama's efforts to rescue the kidnapped Sita, aided by Hanuman, leader of an army of monkeys. These incidents have been retold and lavishly illustrated using original paintings from a 16th-century Mughal manuscript. About the Author Milo Cleveland Beach was the Director of the Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC. He has written extensively on Indian and Mughal painting and authored numerous exhibition catalogues and articles. He is the author of Rajput Painting at Bundi and Kota, The Grand Mogul and Early Mughal Painting. Additional Information Originally published in 1980 by Freer Gallery of Art, this edition is completely redesigned, and comes with added features.

The Imperial Image: Paintings of the Mughal Court
Mapin Publishing; Ahmedabad, India; 2012; 8189995626; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Books have been treasured for centuries in the Islamic world, as precious objects worthy of royal admiration. his was especially true in Muslim India, where generations of Mughal emperors commissioned and collected volumes of richly illuminated manuscripts and lavishly illustrated folios. hey assembled workshops of the leading artists and calligraphers to produce the books that ?lled their extensive libraries. Today, those works remain a vibrant part of India?s cultural and artistic history in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. In this revised and expanded edition of his popular 1981 book, Dr Milo Beach presents the superb collection of Mughal painting in the Freer Gallery of Art. He adds many of the outstanding works that entered the collection with the opening of the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery in 1987. Together, the Freer and Sackler Galleries, the Smithsonian?s museums of Asian art, have the distinction of being one of the world?s leading repositories of Mughal art. An introductory essay examines the Mughal art of the book and traces the contributions of a succession of rulers in Muslim India. Brief artist biographies and an extensive bibliography complete this updated volume. Printed Pages: 232 with numerous colour illustrations. 037240

Communications and Power: Propaganda and the Press in the Indian National Struggle, 1920-1947
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 1994; 8185618445; Hard Cover; New; New; 
At the end of the First World War, Government of India officials and Indian nationalist politicians began to recognise the need for an organized communications network that could reach out to a large and diverse Indian population. The challenge for Government and nationalists alike was to create an effective propaganda machine that could both disseminate news and, at the same time, elicit the desired political response. Milton Israel’s book describes the role of the press, news services and propaganda agencies in the last stage of the nationalist struggle in India before the departure of the British, emphasizing the media’s participation in the development of a ‘national’ perspective. Within this context, the author examines the significance of the encounter between imperialism and nationalism and the influence one had upon the other in achieving often conflicting objectives. Contents Introduction: politics and the press in a colonial setting; l. The Government of India: images and messages in the defense of authority; 2. The news services: ‘impartial Reuters’ or ‘foreign pipes’; 3. The Congress search for a common voice; 4. The Bombay Chronicle: a case study; 5. The struggle overseas; Conclusion.

20676 Minakshie Das Gupta, Bunny Gupta, and Jaya Chaliha
The Calcutta Cookbook: A Treasury of Over 200 Recipes from Pavement to Palace
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 1995; 0140469729; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms Utpal Basu 
The Calcutta Cookbook is much more than a cookery book—it is a culinary chronicle of travellers and traders who built the city that Job Charnock founded. Calcutta 's chronicle began on a hot, wet August afternoon in 1690 when a hungry Charnock climbed off his ship on to the steps of a muddy ghat. The river was Hooghly and the place Sutanati… The story of Calcutta is told by three food lovers—the late gourmet chef and author of Bangla Ranna, Minakshi Das Gupta, and feature writers Bunny Gupta and Jaya Chaliah—who have collected recipes from all over the world. Many of these are family secrets of Calcuttans who have recreated Armenian, Jewish, Arabian, European, Chinese and Tibetan dishes with distinct Calcutta flavour. Through over two hundred tried and tested recipes ranging from the delicious Bengali Chingri Maacher Malai Curry to the biryani and kebabs of Kabul, and the Temperado, Vindaloo and Sorpotel of Goa, Calcutta unfolds as a gourmet’s paradise.

Spline Functions on Triangulations: Encyclopedia of Mathematics and Its Applications 110
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2007; 978052187529; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 160 x 240 Mm 
Spline functions are universally recognized as highly effective tools in approximation theory, computer-aided geometric design, image analysis, and numerical analysis. The theory of univariate splines is well known but this text is the first comprehensive treatment of the analogous bivariate theory. A detailed mathematical treatment of polynomial splines on triangulations is outlined, providing a basis for developing practical methods for using splines in numerous application areas. The detailed treatment of the Bernstein-Bézier representation of polynomials will provide a valuable source for researchers and students in CAGD. Chapters on smooth macro-element spaces will allow engineers and scientists using the FEM method to solve partial differential equations numerically with new tools. Workers in the geosciences will find new tools for approximation and data fitting on the sphere. Ideal as a graduate text in approximation theory, and as a source book for courses in computer-aided geometric design or in finite-element methods. • First book to offer a detailed treatment of bivariate splines • Provides a basis for developing practical methods for using splines in numerous application areas • Up-to-date and comprehensive account, suitable for mathematicians, statisticians, engineers, geoscientists, biologists and computer scientists working in academia or industry Contents Preface; 1.

India: Urban Poverty Report 2009
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2009; 0198060254; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The India: Urban Poverty Report 2009 identifies the problems faced by the poor and focuses on the systemic changes that are needed. It looks at the process of globalization and the development strategy in the country, and asks why the poor exist in urban India and how they are being physically and economically absorbed into the system. It analyses the processes of urbanization, migration, changes in the economic structure, and the pattern of infrastructural investment, highlighting how these impact on the well-being of the poor. The central concerns of this report include: • trends and patterns of migration; • dynamics of urban land and capital market; • marginalization of the poor to the urban periphery; • changes in urban governance; • gender dimensions of urban poverty; • unorganized workforce and the informal sector; • provision of and access to basic services and amenities indicating quality of life; and • the appalling conditions in slums. The essays present both the challenges as well as some of the innovative solutions that are being tried out in different parts of the country. With a focus on the goal of inclusive cities in India, this report will be an important contribution to the re-evaluation of existing policies and programmes to redress urban poverty. 026200

MGNREGA Sameeksha: An Anthology of Research Studies on the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act, 2005 2006-2012
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8125047255; Softcover; New; 
The Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA), the flagship rural employment Scheme of the Government of India, was launched in February 2006. It is perhaps the largest and most ambitious social security and public works programme in the world. Six years after its implementation, the basic principles and high potential of the MGNREGA are well established. The fact that about one-fourth (25 per cent) of all rural households in the country participate in the programme every year, is testimony to its resounding popularity. Since its inception, around Rs 110,000 crore has gone directly as wage payment to rural households, and 1,200 core person-days of employment have been generated. MGNREGA with its demand-driven design, rights-based structure and unprecedented scale has attracted the attention of several scholars, researchers, social activists, and policymakers and analysts around the world. This anthology is a synthesis of over a hundred studies on MGNREGA, its impact and implementation. It provides a readable summary of these studies and popularly expressed concerns. It also seeks to identify unanswered questions on both the impact and potential of MGNREGA that will require further research. The report is objective in identifying both the positive impact of the Scheme as well as the constraints that limit MGNREGA’s effective implementation.Printed Pages: 128. 101819

Valistus suomalaisessa kirjakulttuurissa 1700-Luvulla
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2011; 9516533876; New; 
Tutkimus avartaa suomalaista valistustutkimusta tarkastelemalla valistusta 1700-luvun Suomessa kirjahistorian näkökulmasta. Kirjassa seurataan valistusfilosofien teosten kulkeutumista suomalaisen lukijakunnan käsiin, valistuskirjallisuuden vastaanottoa sekä teosten synnyttämää valistuskeskustelua. Samalla tutkimus osoittaa, miten valistusajan painotuotteet filosofisista teksteistä ja romaanikirjallisuuden muotoon piilotetusta uskontokritiikistä rohkeisiin eroottisiin kuvauksiin saivat paikkansa suomalaisissa kirjakokoelmissa. Suomalainen lukijakunta ja kirjamarkkinat eivät pohjoisesta sijainnista tai sensuuritoimenpiteistä huolimatta olleet osattomia valistuskirjallisuudesta tai valistuksesta käydyistä keskusteluista. Valistusajan kirjakulttuurin uudet muodot tavoittivat erilaiset sosiaaliryhmät aatelisista ja papistosta porvaristoon, Turun akatemian oppineistosta Viaporin upseereihin ja rannikkokaupunkien kauppiaisiin.

Raamattu ja Rasismi
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2016; New; 
Raamatun tulkinnoilla on historian saatossa perusteltu rasismia, kansanryhmien orjuuttamista ja väkivaltaa. Toisaalta Raamattu edustaa sorron vastustamista ja kaikkien ihmisten yhtäläisiä oikeuksia. Jo alkukirkon aikana kirkon katsottiin murtavan etnisten ryhmien väliset raja-aidat, mutta samalla mustan afrikkalaisen sielun tuli muuttua valkoiseksi kasteella tai viimeistään matkalla taivaaseen. Raamatulla on perusteltu afrikkalaisten apartheidia, mutta Raamattuun tukeutuivat myös orjuuden vastustajat ja mustien kansalaisoikeusliikkeen keulahahmo Martin Luther King. Raamatulla on puolustettu niin juutalaisvihaa kuin juutalaisen kansan erityisasemaakin. Suomessa erityisesti venäläisvihaa ja saamelaisiin kohdistuneita ennakkoluuloja on perusteltu Raamattuun ja kristinuskoon vedoten. Raamattu ja rasismi teoksessa TT Minna Heimola kuvaa, miten Raamattu on taipunut yhtä lailla kolonialismin ja sorron kuin ihmisoikeuksien puolustamisen työkaluksi. Kirja herättää pohtimaan Raamatun tulkintojen moninaisuutta ja tulkitsijan etiikkaa. Printed Pages: 135. 114521

Recycling Ships: Maritime Archaeology of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Suomenlinna
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2017; 9526876806; New; 
The study site is the underwater seascape of the 18th-century fortress islands of Suomenlinna (Sveaborg) in the harbour of Helsinki, Finland. The site is located in the Gulf of Finland, in the eastern part of the Baltic Sea. The fortress has global significance as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This study had its origin in the insight that a ship's hull, while comprised of numerous individual artifacts, could be treated as one object from the viewpoint of archaeological research. From that premise, it followed that the study of the ship as an artefact can be continued through processes of reuse. This change in approach allowed evaluating the reuse of ships in a different way than the traditional concept of recycling, which involves demolishing and cannibalizing all the material of the vessel. This study states that the hull can also be recycled intact to serve the contemporary community. Accordingly, it is called recycling rather than simple reuse, since it involves a change in the function of the hull. The activities of different periods have left footprints in the underwater seascape, which create a basis for interpretations of a maritime cultural landscape. The author used maritime archaeological field methods to collect data throughout the 80-hectare water area around Suomenlinna. This archaeological record has not been analysed earlier. For this study, an interpretation tool was developed for unidentified shipwrecks, especially for data produced in surveys. The three primary aims of this study are raising awareness of the possibilities of maritime archaeological studies, broadening the concept of recycling, and increasing the appreciation of old and poorly preserved wrecks. In addition, this study reveals recycling processes undertaken on some of the first vessels of the Swedish Army Fleet, and the locations of the last wooden sailing warships of the Russian Baltic Fleet. Maritime archaeology should be challenged to apply its methods and perspectives to address contemporary global concerns and the well-being of our waters, as well as ourselves.

Middle-Class Moralities: Everyday Struggle Over Belonging and Prestige in India
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8125037896; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
New middle-classes present themselves as the epitome of modernity and progress. Both in their role as social models and culture-brokers, they seem to promote a heightened consciousness of cultural difference and nationalism. Middle-Class Moralities examines how the new middle classes of India create identities, practices and politics of the everyday in a dialogue that involves other social categories and an imaginary West. Drawing upon ethnographic and interview material, this book studies family relations, leisure, food, housing and religious practices of these emerging and enterprising social classes. Defining the middle classes is a political and embodied process that people negotiate by making instrumental use of (or domesticating) the idea of the West. A closer and analytical look at the consumption-driven, status-obsessed middle classes reveals their deeper struggles that seek to engage such cultural concepts as dharma, purity, and auspiciousness. The fieldwork for this study was conducted mainly in the city of Hyderabad among its upwardly mobile people who have identified themselves as “Hindus.” The Indian situation, argues the author, is comparable to that of the urban middle classes elsewhere, especially those of the traditionally hierarchical Asian societies. The dilemmas of these classes in a fast-globalizing India have seldom been given the detailed attention offered in these pages. Printed Pages: 236. 030720

Landscape Experience as Visual Narrative
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2007; 9514109090; New; 
This study focuses on two landscape handscrolls: "Luxuriant Forests and Distant Peaks," in the Liaoning Provincial Museum and "Pavilions and Mansions by Rivers and Mountains," in the Osaka Municipal Art Museum. The investigation of the relationship of these scrolls raises two related issues toward a better understanding of the history of the landscape handscrolls in the Northern Song period. First, the Liaoning picture includes a colophon stating that the painting was originally mounted as a small folding screen. Handscrolls were intented to be viewed section by section, but landscape screens like the Liaoning picture were clearly intended so that the entire composition should be on view. The second issue concerns the functions of these paintings. A small folding screen could be a screen framing a bed or a pillow screen. Both kinds of screens were used in private quarters when resting or sleeping. 114318
