This trend is creating stresses in the family life. The old conservation notion that woman?s rightful place is in home still develops situations of conflict. Under the shadows of conflicts and stresses the education of the women has to be planned, propagated and provided. In the present book the stresses and conflicts of the working and non-working women are highlighted and the role of education in meeting the challenges of the modern life is discussed.What will be the futuristic trends in women education? Whether women education should be of the same pattern as the education of men? If not then why and what type of education is required for them?

The book deliberates upon the appropriate measures that ought to be taken regarding women education so that an era of equality, dignity, esteem, self-respect and self-confidence dawns upon the Indian social order.Printed Pages: 202. 106029

Seed of Genius: Nurture Your Natural Multiple Intelligences
Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789381626740; Softcover; New; 
Each person is born with the potential to be whatever they want to be. As a person grows, their mental faculties open up, they learn to use their intelligence in whatever task they are doing.Intelligence implies the ability to understand a concept, deconstruct, analyze and re imagine it. It is the ability to use all the mental faculties well. And, Intelligence is not fixed. If a person gets a low score in an IQ test, they can improve it the next time they take the test through practice. Thus, intelligence can be improved, it is not something that is allotted in a set quantity to each person.The author says that to function at an optimal level, to use their intelligence fully, a person first has to know himself. They have to realize their own strengths and weaknesses, what they are interested in and so on. Each person has particular areas where they are strong, and areas where they do not do so well. Once a person realizes their own strength, they should concentrate on developing it, not get obsessed and side-tracked by their weaknesses.This book aims to take people through the steps to identifying their own potential and realizing it. To use their natural abilities to the full extent. The book has been arranged to logically proceed from realization to growth. The author draws an analogy between how the book has been arranged to the stages in boarding a flight. The first part is waiting in the departure lounge. In this section, the author introduces the basic ideas. He begins with the chapters, Our Origin and Arise Awake. The next stage is the preparation for take off. Here the author discusses the concept of intelligence, the Intelligence Quotient tests and the futility of trying to measure actual intelligence. The chapters in this section are Interesting Intelligence, and Measuring Methods.The next stage is the actual flying. This is the core of the book, where the reader begins to really understand the concept of intelligence. The chapters in this part are Plural Potential, Genetic Genius and Assessing Access. After this comes the post flight process. Here, the author discusses the ways to let the seed grow, to nurture intelligence, like a seed is nurtured by a combination of soil, water, fertilizers, and sunlight. In this section he focuses on topics like Brain Basics, Mind Matters and Future Focus.Seed Of Genius: Nurture Your Natural Multiple Intelligences teaches its readers ways in which to awaken to their own potential, and how to realize that potential through the use of their various mental faculties. The iQuiz and iTry sections in the book lets the readers assess their own intelligence and become aware of what they are capable of. 109579

2119 Ann Grodzins Gold (Translated with an introduction and afterword)
A Carnival of Parting: The Tales of King Bharthari and King Gopi Chand as Sung and Told By Madhu Natisar of Ghatiyali, Rajasthan
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1993; 8121506220; First Indian Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
Madhu Natisar Nath is a farmer with no formal schooling. Here is also a singer, a musician, and a storyteller. At the center of present work are Madhu Nath's oral performances of two linked tales about the legendary Indian kings, Bharthari of Ujjain and Gopi Chand of Bengal. Both characters, while still in their prime, leave thrones and families to be initiated as yogis-a process rich in adventure and melodrama, one that offers unique insights into popular Hinduism's view of world renunciation. Authoress presents these living oral epic traditions as flowing narratives, transmitting to Western readers the interactive dimensions, the moods, and the pleasures of a village bard's performance. Three introductory chapters and an interpretive afterword, together with an appendix on the bard's language by David Magier, supply the work with a richly detailed ethnographic, historical and cultural backdrop. Authoress gives a frank and engaging portrayal of the bard Madhu Nath and her work with him. She examines the Nath caste and their oral epic traditions as an important stream within North Indian Hinduism, showing how Madhu Nath's versions of Bharthari's and Gopi Chand's well-known tales surface as distinctive moments within complex legendary and historical currents. While embellished with miraculous displays of magical powers and evocative of profound spiritual dedication, the tales translated here are most profoundly concerned, authoress argues with human rather than divine realities. In a compelling afterword, she highlights the thematic emphases on politics, love, and death. Although both narratives frequently invoke as ultimate authority the causal black hole of fate, they in no way acquiesce to fatalism. Madhu Nath's vital colloquial telling of Bharthari's and Gopi Chand's stories depict renunciation as inevitable and interpersonal attachments as doomed, yet celebrates human existence as a "carnival of parting."

Rules for Nuns According to the Dharmaguptakavinaya (Buddhist Tradition Series), 3 Vols
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8120818008; Second Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 
The purpose of this work is, on the one hand,to give an annotated English translation of the Chinese version of the bhiksunivibhanga of the Dharma-guptakavinaya, and on the other hand to study the life and the career of Buddhist nun as described in the vinaya literature. This vinaya laid the foundation of Chinese monastic life. As the Dharmaguptakavinaya came into being in symbiosis with other vinaya traditions, a comparison is made with these other traditions on important issues. Given the fact that the Dharmaguptakavinaya is the most important vinaya in China and that it lays the foundation of the monastic life, the author has chosen to translate and to study the discipline for nuns of this vinaya. One should, however, always keep in mind that the Dharmaguptakavinaya came into being in symbiosis with other vinaya traditions, often only transmitted in Chinese. In the Introduction, the place of the Dharmaguptaka tradition, the career of a Buddhist nun and the rules of discipline are discussed. The notes to the English translation provide relevant references to technical terms and to parallel passages from the discipline for monks as well as from other vinaya traditions. The work is supplemented with indexes, glossaries and a concordance of the rules for nuns and monks of the Dharmaguptaka tradition.Printed Pages: 1225 102404

Chinese Sculpture: A Great Tradition
Serindia Publications; Chicago, USA; 2007; 1932476288; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 22 x 27.5 Cm 
Archaeological discoveries over the last fifty years have revolutionised knowledge about Chinese sculpture, revealing the length and strength of a hitherto unsuspected tradition stretching back to prehistoric times. This tradition was concerned with the powers of statuary. Unwritten, it was based on beliefs shared by all classes on the nature of the cosmos, the importance of maintaining contact with the ancestors and the idea that images contain power to influence events in the seen and unseen worlds. With many previously unpublished photographs, the book traces the history of Chinese sculpture through the imperial period. By outlining the principles which underlie all forms of statuary, regardless of size and material, the text aims to elucidate the extent to which sculpture in China has been adapted to serve the political, practical and spiritual needs of its rulers through two thousand years. Sculptures were a vital part of palace, tomb, temple or other complexes intended to further harmony between worldly society and the cosmos. Printed Pages: 560 with 361 colour illustrations. 018752

The Ethnographer's Eye: Ways of Seeing in Anthropology
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2002; 0521773105; Reprint; Hard Cover; Brand New; 16 Cms x 24 Cms 
Grimshaw’s exploration of the role of vision within modern anthropology engages with current debates about ocularcentism, investigating the relationship between vision and knowledge in ethnographic enquiry. Using John Berger’s notion of ‘ways of seeing’, the author argues that vision operates differently as a technique and theory of knowledge within the discipline. In the first part of the book she examines contrasting visions at work in the so-called classical British school, reassessing the legacy of Rivers, Malinowski and Radcliffe-Brown through the lens of early modern art and cinema. In the second part of the book, the changing relationship between vision and knowledge is explored through the anthropology of Jean Rouch, David and Judith MacDougall, and Melissa Llewelyn-Davies. Vision is foregrounded in the work of these contemporary ethnographers, focusing more general questions about technique and epistemology whether image-based media are used or not in ethnographic enquiry. Contents Part I. Visualizing Anthropology: The Modernist Moment and After, 1895–1945: 1. Anxious visions: rivers, cubism and anthropological modernism; 2. The innocent eye: Flaherty, Malinowski and the romantic quest; 3. The light of reason: Grierson, Radcliffe-Brown and the Enlightenment project; Part II. Anthropological Visions: Cinema and Anthropology in the Postwar World: 4. The anthropological cinema of Jean Rouch; 5. The anthropological cinema of David and Judith MacDougall; 6.

Inarinsaamen Käsitemetaforat
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2010; 9525667227; New; 
Tutkimuksen kohteena ovat inarinsaamen konventionaalisissa metaforissa ja metonymioissa ilmenevät lähde- ja kohdedomeenien systemaattiset yhdistämiset. Tutkimus on osoittanut kohta kohdalta, että löytyneet käsitemetaforat myötäilevät kulttuurisia skeemoja. Lähdedomeeneissa toistuvat muistikuvat porotaloudesta ja kalastuksesta, sekä liikkumisesta luonnossa. Toisin sanoen metaforien ja metonymioiden lähdedomeeneina esiintyy inarinsaamelaisten ympäristöstä tuttuja asioita, joita mitä ilmeisimmin keskustelutilanteessa simuloidaan ja joiden avulla viitataan johonkin referenttiin osuvan ilmauksen aikaansaamiseksi. Skeemat moudostuvat vähitellen lapsen kehittyessä sosiaalisessa ja kulttuurisessa ympäristössään. Ne heijastavat kulttuuriydintä eli tapaa, jolla ihminen on sopeutunut ympäristöönsä.

White Field, Black Seeds
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2013; 9522224448; New; 
White field, black seeds – who can sow? The riddle refers to the ability to write, a skill which in most Nordic countries was not regarded as necessary for everyone. And yet a significant number of ordinary people with no access to formal schooling took up the pen and produced a variety of highly interesting texts: diaries, letters, memoirs, collections of folklore and handwritten newspapers. This collection presents the work of primarily Nordic scholars from fields such as linguistics, history, literature and folklore studies who share an interest in the production, dissemination and reception of written texts by non-privileged people during the long nineteenth century.

Kalamkari Temple Hangings
Mapin Publishing; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789385360046; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Victoria and Albert Museum in London has the world’s most important collection of 19th-century temple hangings from South India. Commissioned by Hindu temples and monasteries (maths), and by individuals for religious use, the hangings were produced in the kalamkari style of hand drawing, mordant-dyeing and painting. Striking in artistry, and imposing in size, these temple hangings represent a complex technique that reached its highest expression in southern India.The majority of these pieces are from coastal Andhra Pradesh or Tamil Nadu, with one extraordinary Ramayana hanging from Sri Lanka. All of them date from the 19th century except for one astonishing 20th-century hanging from Srikalahasti, depicting the life of Christ in the traditional Hindu kalamkari style. A first of its kind, this volume presents a fully illustrated compilation of nineteen pieces from the V&A collection, accompanied by translations of their inscriptions, and a summary of the story depicted therein. The ‘frame-by-frame’ analyses of these narratives yield a fascinating range of stories, from versions of the Ramayana to local epics. Bringing this previously unpublished collection together, the book provides us with a new look at the remarkable variety of regional artistic traditions, and allows us to celebrate the master craftsmen whose names are now known to us.

Reverse Glass Painting In India
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2017; 9789385285349; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Reverse Glass Painting is a fascinating yet comparatively unknown facet of Indian art that flourished in the mid-19th century. Created by Chinese and Indian artists, these 'exotic' paintings in luminous colours were much favoured by royal patrons, and also by prosperous landowners and city merchants in colonial India. The themes ranged from portraits of rulers, their families, nobles, dancers and courtesans, to landscapes and a wide variety of religious subjects drawn from the Puranas and the Epics. Many of the portraits depict western style settings and offer a charming insight into the tastes and lifestyle of the western-educated urban elite in mid-19th and early 20th century India. Over a 100 colour images highlight the rare gems of reverse glass painting from numerous private collections in India. Printed Pages: 252. 112629

Esityksen Politiikka: Sosialistinen agitaatio keskisuomalaisella maaseudulla 1906-1908
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2017; 9525976572; New; 
Esityksen politiikka käsittelee Suomen Sosialidemokraattisen puolueen 1900-luvun alun suullista agitaatiotoimintaa uudesta ja tuoreesta näkökulmasta: esitystutkimuksen kautta. Taustalla on ajatus siitä, että aikaisempi sosialistisen agitaation tutkimus ei ole tavoittanut ilmiön kaikkia puolia. Tutkimus tarjoaa uusia näkökulmia poliittiseen toimintaan ja poliittisen identiteetin muotoutumiseen maaseutuympäristössä. Lukija tuntee matkaavansa agitaattorien mukana maaseudulla ja osallistuvansa tiheätunnelmaisiin agitaatiotilaisuuksiin 1900-luvun alussa. Rajavuoren tutkimus on erittäin korkeatasoinen ja tärkeä kontribuutio suomalaisen työväenliikkeen historian tutkimukseen; sillä on vahvan esitysteoreettisen otteensa ansiosta myös huomattavaa kansainvälistä relevanssia. Tutkimuksen tieteelliset tulokset ovat merkittäviä ja sen metodiset ratkaisut innovatiivisia: esitysteoreettinen näkökulma osoittaa Rajavuoren käsittelyssä voimansa. Printed Pages: 341. 115331

Fragmentti, muisto, Maisema: Ville Lukkarisen kirjoituksia taiteesta ja Arkkitehtuurista
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2017; 9525533212; New; 
Fragmentti, muisto, maisema on taidehistorian professori Ville Lukkariselle omistettu juhlakirja. Se koostuu Lukkarisen kirjoituksista 1990-luvulta nykypäiviin asti. Kirjan artikkelit käsittelevät kuvataidetta, arkkitehtuuria, paikan kokemista, piirtämistä, semiotiikkaa ja kirjankuvitustaidetta. Yksi artikkeli on aiemmin julkaisematon. Siinä tarkastellaan Akseli Gallen-Kallelan taidetta siinä toistuvan yksityiskohdan – tuohilipin – kautta. Ville Lukkarisen artikkelit sisältävät oivaltavia tulkintoja taiteesta ja rakennetusta ympäristöstä eri aikakausina, taiteilijan, taideteoksen ja ympäristön suhteesta sekä taiteesta muistin välineenä. Tulkittavien teosten kirjo on laaja: keskiaikaisten kivikirkkojen muodonmuutoksista ja lentokoneiden pienoismalleista Carl Ludvig Engelin rakennuksiin sekä kultakauden maalauksista ja piirustuksista nykytaiteeseen. Fragmentti, muisto, maisema tarjoaa taidehistoriasta kiinnostuneelle lukijalle runsaan ja monipuolisen kokoelman tulkintoja eri aikakausien taideteoksista ja taidemuotojen välisistä yhteyksistä.

Tutkimus käsittelee Viipurin ja Turun linnojen kunnostushankkeita ja toteutumattomia restaurointisuunnitelmia 1800-luvun lopussa. Kirjallisia ja kuvallisia lähteitä yhdistämällä tutkimuksessa tarkastellaan restaurointisuunnitelmia, linnojen merkityksiä ja tutkimushistoriaa. Restaurointisuunnitelmia analysoidaan suhteessa samankaltaiseen toimintaan Ranskassa ja Ruotsissa ja niitä tulkitaan kansallista taidetta ja perintöä koskeneiden aikalaiskeskustelujen valossa. Tutkimuksessa osoitetaan, että suunnitelmien yhtenä tarkoituksena oli muokata rakennuksista monumentteja Suomen ja Ruotsin yhteiselle historialle. Restauroiduilla linnoilla olisi korostettu Ruotsin ajan perinnön kulttuurisia ja yhteiskunnallisia merkityksiä ja rakennettu käsitystä Suomesta historiatietoisena, elinvoimaisena kansakuntana ja Venäjästä erillisenä valtiona.

The Intimate Other: Love Divine in Indic Religions
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2005; 8125028013; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
The Intimate Other explores the theme of the devotional element in Indic Religions not only in Hinduism in which bhakti has become the dominant form, but also in Budhism, Jainism, Sikhism and Islam. The essays by scholars of international repute, show the strength of this devotion to the divine as a living and powerful source of value, aesthetic imagination, creativity and well-being . They also analyse the sometimes divergent interests of scholar and devotee, problematising devotion and exposing its historical development as complex, contested and 'political'. Of particular interest are the chapters on the Jain and Buddhist traditions where the existence of devotion has often been doubted or denied. Contributors investigate widely raging topics: these include an analysis of bhakti within the Sanskrit epics; a text-historical approach to Valmiki; Kabir's authorship of the poems attributed to him; contemporary attitudes to devotion to the Ganga: devotion within a syncretistic Jain movement, in Theravada Budhism, subcontinental Sufi Islam, young Sikhs in Britain and in the shared musical and poetic traditions of Hindus, Sikhs and Muslims. The volume ends with a sensitive exploration of the devotional love that overpowers death within the Hindus, sikhs and Muslims. The volume ends with a sensitive exploration of the devotional love that overpowers death within the Hindu bhakti context. Together they demonstrate vividly just how passionate love for the intimate other penetrates and inspires so many aspects of the religious culture of South Asia. Printed Pages: 436. 031534

Past Perfect: Letters to Aditi
Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789383260263; Softcover; New; 
Cricketer Anna Varughese was only four when she was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, a serious chronic abdominal disease. From then on, her life was dominated by severe food restrictions, doctors and hospitals. Despite all that, encouraged by her incredibly strong mother, Anna never gave up. She went on to do her MBA, marry her college mate and best friend TC and have a daughter, Aditi. When Anna was thirty one came a grim verdict, her liver was so badly damaged that a transplant was her only hope of survival. By 2002, Anna, who had spent nine months in a small London apartment with her mother, waiting for a donor, had almost given up hope. It was then that Past Perfect took shape. If she couldnt live to tell Aditi the tale, Anna was determined that her daughter would still read her story that of a wonderful past and an ordinary but lovely life. Here is that captivating story, full of humour and laughter, of a Kerala childhood packed with family, cousins playing ever ending games, gatherings around tables groaning with food and celebrations of weddings, festivals and ordinary days with equal gusto. Anna found her donor in September 2002. Her refusal to let the disease define her or destroy her love for life, will bring hope to anyone faced with a life threatening condition and to their families who fight the battle with them. 109608

Death, Destruction and Commemoration
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2010; 9519057781; New; 
The thesis is connected with death, memory and ancestor commemoration during the Merovingian Period, the Viking Age and the beginning of the Crusade Period (AD 550–1150) in Finland. During this time, cremation was the dominant burial rite. Three different burial types 1) cremation cemeteries below level ground, 2) inhumation burials and 3) water burials are discussed in five articles. This thesis shows that it is possible to claim that both artefact and site re-use is a much more widespread phenomenon than has previously been thought in Finnish archaeology. It is also a conscious and deliberate behaviour that can be related to an ancestor cult and commemoration of the dead. Printed Pages: 214. 114137

THE MYTHIC, SHAMANISTIC NATURE of the Kalevala has been emphasised ever since the epic was first published. The epic poetry and incantations on which it is founded afford a vista of a captivating world of archaic thought patterns and mythic images. This work by Anna-Leena Siikala analyses the shamanistic images and metaphors encountered in the oral poetry of the Baltic Finns and at the same time examines the action of the ecstatic tietäjäs and the seers who fell into a trance. It thus reveals the images and metaphors and their variations associated with the shaman’s skills, the topography and inhabitants of the other world and the shaman’s journey there. Siikala traces mythic images in the light of Old Norse poetry and sagas, the myths of Antiquity and the Middle East, medieval visions, Siberian and Sami shamanism, archaeology and linguistic developments.Mythic Images and Shamanism. A Perspective on Kalevala Poetry delves to the very roots of Northern European thought. The numerous incantations quoted, so far unknown to the English-speaking world, illustrate the visual nature of the poetry on which the Kalevala is based and the close relationship between incantations and epic as manifestations of mythic thinking.

Kalevalamittainen runous ei ollut yksin suomalaisten ja karjalaisten omaisuutta. Kalevalan aineksista lähes puolet löytyy myös virolaisesta kansanperinteestä. Lisäksi näitä lauluja lauloivat inkeriläiset ja vatjalaiset. Niistä muodostuu itämerensuomalaisten myyttien ja maailmanselitysten rihmasto. Printed Pages: 536. 115046

Creating Diversities. Folklore: Religion and the Politics of Heritage
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2004; 9517466315; New; 
Creating Diversities. Folklore, Religion and the Politics of Heritage emphasizes two important factors in the cultural and political exchanges among historical minorities, recent immigrants, and the majority groups dictating the conditions of these exchanges. The first factor is religion, which is a powerful tool in the construction of ethnic selves and in the establishment of boundaries between groups. The second factor is the role of national and regional folklore archives and ethnographic and cultural historical museums which create ideas and images of minorities. These representations, created in different political climates, affect the general understanding of the people depicted. Printed Pages: 307. 115114

Tutkimuksessa käsitellään shamaanin ekstaasitekniikkaa muuttuneiden tajunnantilojen kulttuurisen tuottamisen kannalta; myös rooliteorian tarjoamia näkökulmia on käytetty hyväksi. Tekijä analysoi shamanistisia istuntoja ja osoittaa shamanismin peruspiirteet, joiden variointi selittyy kulloisenkin kulttuurin sosio-ekonomisista ehdoista. Printed Pages: 385. 115124

Return to Culture: Oral Tradition and Society in the Southern Cook Islands (Folklore Fellows Communications 287)
Suomalainen Tiedeakatemia (Academia Scientiarum Fennica)/Bookstore Tiedekirja; Helsinki, Finland; 2005; 9514109651; Hardcover; New; New; 
THEORETICAL DISCUSSIONS ON CULTURE and folklore have bifurcated into two major directions. Individualistic interpretations have emphasised performance and culture as being a product of individual strategic choices. Put in a wider social context culture has been reduced to hegemonic tradition in service of the interests of the elites. The analysis of Polynesian cultural practices in this volume reassesses the importance of theoretical understanding of culture which enables an analytic understanding of social action, political structure, narrative practices and thus the culturally constituted life-world of the people.Pacific oral tradition is not a free-floating and easily circulating “folklore”, but an integral part of social life with direct political consequences. It has not been detached from social life and therefore it is not easily interpretable without a thorough knowledge of the whole cultural system. By analysing a wide range of cultural materials this volume argues strongly for the notion of culture as ordering order which systematically determines the significance of differences.

Mythic Discourses: Studies in Uralic Traditions
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2012; 952222376X; New; 
Mythic discourses in the present day show how vernacular heritage continues to function and be valuable through emergent interpretations and revaluations. At the same time, continuities in mythic images, motifs, myths and genres reveal the longue durée of mythologies and their transformations. The eighteen articles of Mythic Discourses address the many facets of myth in Uralic cultures, from the Finnish and Karelian world-creation to Nenets shamans, offering multidisciplinary perspectives from twenty eastern and western scholars. The mythologies of Uralic peoples differ so considerably that mythology is approached here in a broad sense, including myths proper, religious beliefs and associated rituals. Traditions are addressed individually, typologically, and in historical perspective. The range and breadth of the articles, presenting diverse living mythologies, their histories and relationships to traditions of other cultures such as Germanic and Slavic, all come together to offer a far richer and more developed perspective on Uralic traditions than any one article could do alone.

Itkuvirren kolme elämää
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2006; 9517468091; New; 
Itkuvirren kolme elämää ei keskity itkuvirsiin (valituslauluihin) sinänsä, vaan itkukulttuuriin eli itkuvirsien elämään – miten itkuvirsiä käytetään ja mikä on niiden merkitys itkijöiden elämässä. Itkuvirren ensimmäisellä elämällä tarkoitetaan rajakarjalaista itkuperinnettä 1800-luvun lopulla ja 1900-luvun alkukymmeninä, päähenkilönä Matjoi Plattonen. Itkuvirren toinen elämä tarkastelee evakkojen itkuperinnettä ja kolmas elämä esittelee 1990-luvulla virinnyttä uutta itkuinnostusta. Teos tuo esille eri aikojen itkijänaisten omia käsityksiä äänellä itkennästä ja esittelee sekä vanhoja että uusia itkuja. Printed Pages: 443. 115076

Kaupunkilaisten Helsinki
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2016; 9522226769; New; 
Kaupunkilaisten Helsinki käsittelee Helsingin historiaa voimakkaan kasvun kaudella vuodesta 1945 vuosisadan loppuun. Anna-Maria Åström tutkii teoksen omassa osuudessaan helsinkiläisten muistoja, paikkoja ja kiinnekohtia. Kaupunkietnologisen osan tavoitteena on kuvailla kaupunkilaisten elintapoja ja kulttuurin urbaanisia ilmenemismuotoja. Keskeisenä on kaupunkilaisten itsensä kokema arkipäivän todellisuus, jota voidaan nimittää ”koetuksi tilaksi”. Kaupunkikulttuuria tarkastellaan asukkaiden omasta näkökulmasta, ensin kantakaupungin osalta ja vähitellen laajemmin lukuisten esikaupunkialueiden näkökulmasta. Kaupungin urbaani syke, kansainvälistyminen ja monikulttuurisuus kuuluvat ja näkyvät kaduilla. Åström kuvailee elävästi kodeista ja kotikortteleista sekä kahvila- ja leffakokemuksista. Laura Kolben osuudessa kuvataan Helsingin keskeisten kaupunkitilojen yhteisöllistä ja seremoniallista sekä symbolista ja poliittista käyttöä sekä käyttöön liittyvää vallankäyttöä. Kenelle julkinen tila kuuluu ja miten sen käytöstä on eri aikoina kilvoiteltu? Tila on samalla sekä todellinen että kuviteltu paikka, johon asukkaat heijastavat kaupunki-identiteettiään kulttuurisesti ja sosiaalisesti. Avainkysymys on, miten Helsinki ilmentää pääkaupunkiasemaansa ja miten julkisessa tilassa tulevat näkyväksi poliittiset, sosiaaliset ja yhteiskunnalliset muutokset. Printed Pages: 608. 114743

Goa: Paradise-on-Sea
Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8174362843; First Edition; Paperback; New; New; 11 x 8.5 Inches 
If you were to drop a bomb on Goa, it would land either on a cross or on a tavern - so goes the saying. Goa: Paradise on Sea faithfully represents it. The book is strongly marked by the Goan passion for life, which is on song the whole of 365 days. The ubiquitous singing, the famed beaches, the inevitable tot of wicked feni, the typical Goan-Portuguese cuisine do not leave space for much seriousness. Goa talks of the small state, liberated from 450 years of colonial rule in 1947, which is also heir to a unique inter-religious culture. Christian altars are decorated with Hindu motifs; Hindus, Christians and Muslims celebrate Carnival and Shimogi (the Goan festival of lights). Half the female population prefers the sari; others are comfortable in trousers and Western dresses. All, however, bow to the sweet spirit of St. Francis Xavier, the patron saint of Goa. Religious edifices unerringly index the glorious heights to which architecture aspires in Goa. Well-appointed homes and elegant mannerisms attest to its people’s warmth. Goa imbibes everything of the Goan spirit and is a heady read. Printed Pages: 79 with colour illustrations. 000642

Vikuroivia Vilkaisuja: Ruumis, sukupuoli, seksuaalisuus ja visuaalisen kulttuurin Tutkimus
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2006; 9525533077; New; 
Tutkimuksen lähtökohtana on, etteivät visuaaliset representaatiot vain heijasta todellisuutta vaan tuottavat sitä aktiivisesti. Kuvien analyysissä lanseerataan uusi käsite: vikurointi ja vikuroiva katsominen. Vikurointi merkitsee kolmea seikkaa. Ensinnäkin se kuvaa tutkijan omaa asennetta kun hän haastaa ja kyseenalaistaa sovinnaiset, luonnolliselta tuntuvat selitysmalit. Toiseksi vikurointi viittaa kuviin ja niiden performatiiviseen voimaan. Kolmanneksi vikurointi viittaa epänormatiivisiin muotoihin: vikuureihin eli viallisiin muotoihin. Näitä edustavat tutkimuksessa sellaiset sukupuolten ja seksuaalisuuksien esitykset, jotka asettuvat normatiivisten sukupuolten ja seksuaalisuuksien esitysten ulkopuolelle ja jotka uhkaavat totunnaista järjestystä.

Kampil: Archaeological Study of a Site in the Ancient Kingdom of Panchala
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8121512360; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Kampil, located in the South Panchala region where the bases of the culture of the Indian civilization were developed, very probably played a role in that process. Cunningham realised, back in the nineteenth century, the archaeological potential of the site and identified Kampil with Kampilya. But the archaeological excavations will be the only way of knowing whether the name of Kampil was Kampilya, as Cunningham maintained, or whether the identity was only temporary, as the authors believe, or alternatively whether Kampil had nothing in common with the ancient capital. In the meantime, despite the predictable difficulties (the present built-up area occupies a large part of the mound), there are sufficient reasons to carry on in-depth researches about the site. The book brings together the indications obtained from Kampil, all the known information referring to the site and some hypotheses the authors have formulated. It is not possible to write about Kampil without widening the discussion to Panchala, one of the best-know protohistoric mahajanapadas, probably involved in Kampilya events. Anyone looking for definitive and archaeologically certain elements in the book will be disappointed because the intention here is to transmit, above all, ideas and stimuli for further archaeological research.

Tourism and Public Relations
Kalpaz Publications/Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8178359758; Hardcover; New; New; 
This is a practical book, but it is not a “how-to” book. Instead, it deals with the What, When, and why; to do PR in an effective way. Tourism and Public Relations are discussed under five main headings. Tourism concepts, Public Relations and Code of Ethics, Public Relations in Government, Marketing Public Relations and PR and Tourism. Chapter I on the Tourism Concepts presents tourism alike as purposeful and as a discipline. It shows first where and how about the tourism concepts and fundamentals. It then discusses about tourism as a viable business or services. Chapter II focuses on the PR and Code of ethics that is important to the today and tomorrow. It deals with various models, principles and ethics. Chapter III Public Relations in Government highlights about PR skills and how to develop media programmes and maintain media relationships. And finally, Chapter IV PR and Tourism talks to tapping the tourism potential with effective communication and PR. The potential the country has for tourism is simply huge. But can we leverage on our strengths and build a national brand to emerge as one of the top tourist destinations in the world by PR.Printed Pages: 400. 106244

The Making of Navi Mumbai
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8125026002; Softcover; New; 
This book uses the case of the Navi Mumbai urban project to bring out many of the problems inherent in the urbanisation process and in the nature of urban policy-making in post-colonial India. It illustrates how even a new city, built from scratch, is riddled with social and economic contradictions---well-planned and serviced areas coexisting with slums and shanties. The work questions some of the accepted solutions to urban policy especially with regard to urban land and distribution of civic infrastructure. Navi Mumbai is being used as a model for building new towns outside other cities in India. This detailed case study of Navi Mumbai reveals the strengths and weaknesses of this model of urbanisation and indicates the policy directions that can obliterate the duality that has characterised the Indian city all through the twentieth century.Printed Pages: 312. 101844

Buddhist practices such as mindfulness (in which calm centering and keen awareness of change coexist) and compassion (in which the self is recognized as both powerful in itself and interdependently connected with all others) can be important resources for contemporary women, while feminism can expand the traditional horizons of Buddhist concerns to include social, historical, and psychological issues. The image and ritual of the Great Bliss Queen, an important Buddhist figure of enlightenment, from the unifying theme of the book, modeling the practices and theory that can assist each of us being at one with ourselves and fully engaged with others.Printed Pages: 325. 102389

Indian Prince Ranjitsinghji was the most famous cricket-player of his generation. In 1924, the inhabitants of Connemara, on the west coast of Ireland, were amazed when this exotic stranger fell in love with Ballynahinch Castle and decided to move in. Using rare documents from government and personal archives, private photographs and personal stories from people who knew or worked for ‘The Ranji’ as they called him, biographer Anne Chambers, brings this intriguing story to light for the first time. She reveals the reasons behind Ranji’s strange decision, and looks at the fascinating legacy the Maharaja left behind. Printed Pages: 212. 015119

Moving into Meditation: A 12-Week Mindfulness Program for Yoga Practitioners
Shambhala Publications/TBI; New Delhi, India; 2014; 1611800986; Softcover; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
One week at a time, Moving into Meditation lays out a plan for exploring body-based practices to get you more in tune with not only your limbs and core but your mind and heart. Cushman's curriculum integrates asana with mindfulness meditation to help practitioners turn "embodiment" from a concept into a tangible reality. Her insightful mixture of practices, yoga history, and Buddhist philosophy are made relevant to your present-day life. Personal stories from the "trenches" of decades of practice and teaching add color; Cushman's characteristic poetic and funny voice makes all readers feel that much more human. Cushman believes--and experience proves--that by becoming better attuned to and acquainted with the body, the physical forms become a vehicle for becoming more intimate with yourself and your world. From there, we can explore and embody the teachings of the Buddha for a more awakened life. In recent years, "mindfulness" has blasted into mainstream culture much as yoga did two decades ago, making "mindful yoga" an appealing trend. But how does mindful yoga evolve from a buzz-worthy concept to a lived experience? How do yoga asanas and pranayama support and express the practice of meditation? How do you explore the teachings of the Buddha through the vehicle of your own living, breathing, human body? As we quickly learn, the practices are inherently entwined. Experienced yoga and meditation teacher Anne Cushman answers all these questions and more in Moving into Meditation, teaching us to deepen our asana practices with mindfulness meditation and enhance our meditation practice with asana. With compassion, humor, and deep intelligence, Moving into Meditation guides us through integrating mind, body, and spirit practices for a wide-awake life. Printed Pages: 285. 111484

Kingship and Ideology in the Islamic and Mongol Worlds
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2009; 0521118719; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 160 x 235 Mm 
What were the attitudes to diplomacy and kingship in the medieval Islamic world? Anne Broadbridge examines struggles over ideology in the Middle East and Central Asia from 1260 to 1405. She explores two very different ideological worlds: the Islamic world of the Mamluk Sultans of Egypt and Syria, and the Mongol world inhabited by the Golden Horde in Central Asia, the Ilkhanids in Iran and Anatolia, the Ilkhanids' successors, and Temür. The relationships among these rival rulers were often highly charged, and diplomatic missions were exchanged in an effort to promote each ruler's ideology. This is the first book to explore what it meant to be a monarch in the pre-modern Islamic world, and how ideas about sovereignty evolved across the period. This groundbreaking work will appeal to scholars of Middle Eastern and Central Asian history, Mongol history, and Islamic history, as well as historians of diplomacy and ideology. Contents Introduction 1. The ideology and the diplomacy 2. The establishment of ideologies (1260–1293/ 658–93) 3. The age of Ilkhanid conversion (1295–1316/694–716) 4. The age of patronage and Muslim supremacy (1317–41/717–41) 5. Mamluk regional sovereignty and the post-Ilkhanid order (1335–82/736–84) 6.

This volume contains fourteen selected papers in English by the late G.D. Sontheimer and follows up on his earlier volume King of Hunters, Warriors, and Shepherds: Essays on Kha??oba. The articles chosen for publication here span a wide thematic and temporal range and will be of interest to students of Hinduism. The volume contains essays on the juristic personality of Hindu deities, the history and religion of pastoral groups in the Deccan and the interdependence of folk and scriptural religion.The articles reflect Sontheimer's multidisciplinary approach, combining the methodologies of philology, anthropology, history, archaeology, epigraphy and iconography. Three other articles, illustrated by over a hundred photographs, focus on hero- and sati-stones of the Deccan and western India. Sontheimer identified the worship of heroes and satis as an important element of folk religion. He analyses the memorial stones in the context of other historical social and religious references, physical ecology and literary sources. Yet another set of articles deals with aspects of oral literature. Two papers can be considered building blocks for a model of Hinduism that was finally worked out in "Hinduism­ The Five Components and Their Interaction" (1989), the article which concludes the present volume.Printed Pages: 467. 101675

In the Company of Gods: Essays in Memory of Gunther-Dietz Sontheimer
Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts/Manohar Publishers & Distributors; New Delhi, India; 2005; 8173045917; Hardcover; New; New; 
When Gunther Sontheimer passed away at the early age of fifty-eight on 1June 1992, he had done a good thirty years of research and teaching on a variety of subjects including traditional Indian law and ethics, contemporary literature in Marathi, Hinduism and folk religion in Maharasthra. He guided a generation of students at the South Asia Institute of Heidelberg and a "Sontheimer School" had begun to take shape there.This volume contains twenty essays written by Indologists, anthropologists, historians, experts on Indian law, art historians, a filmmaker and a poet from all over the globe - India, Germany, USA, Canada, Israel and Russia are testimony to the shoreless reach of Sontheimer's work. The authors and the editors of this volume have been irrevocably influenced by his original ideas, and his intensely shy yet extraordinarily inspiring personality. The essays in this volume are divided into four sections: folk religion, bhakti, history and law, and an epilogue that reflects on Sontheimer's thoughts on Hindu law, the constituents of Hinduism, his interest in folk bronzes, documentary film-making, and a poem by Dilip Chitre on Sontheimer. The chapters on folk religion reflect his deep understanding of this aspect as being boundary crossing, incorporating the trans-local and the local, the high and the low - a simultaneous networks of traditions. The chapters on bhakti show how devotion, in the Varkari tradition in Maharashtra and in Kabir’s poetry, transcends the categories of folk, tribal and Brahmanical. The chapters on history and law deal with the application of the forest (vana) and settlement (k?etra) spatial and symbolical categories used by him in his analysis and customary law during the early colonial period in Maharashtra. The contributions in the fourth section are biographical and trace his thoughts on law, his analysis of Hinduism, his fascination with "folk bronzes" and his discovery of the film.Printed Pages: 409. 101676
