22101 Nicholas B. Dirks
Castes of Mind: Colonialism and the Making of Modern India
Orient BlackSwan/Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8178240726; Softcover; New; 
The author argues that caste is neither an unchanged survival of ancient India nor a single system that reflects some core culture. Rather than being an expression of Indian tradition, he argues that caste, as we know it now, is a relatively modern phenomenon, the product of the encounter between India and British colonial rule. This is not to suggest that the British invented caste, but to show that it was on account of British domination that caste became a single term capable of naming as well as subsuming India’s diverse forms of social identity and organisation. Dirks also examines the rise of caste politics in contemporary India, in particular caste-based movements and their implications for Indian nationhood.Printed Pages: 388. 101971

The Politics Book: A Lexicon of Political Facts from Abu Gharib to Zippergate
Research Press Private Limited; New Delhi, India; 8173141363; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
apologise One of the hardest things for any politician to do, but one that will be required of them if they breach parliamentary etiquette or are to survive the exposure of personal misjudgement or wrongdoing. Joseph Chamberlain’s motto was ‘Never apologise, never explain, never retract’; Spiro Agnew’s, ‘Apologise now. It will save time later’. In the twelve years since the publication of the now legendary Brewer’s Politics, the political lexicon has grown exponentially, as politics itself appears to have entered a terrifying, global age. Taking up where Brewer’s left off, The Politics Book provides a snapshot of where the language of politics finds itself today. A unique blend of hard facts, political insight and searing wit, The Politics Book navigates the soundbites, the put-down and half-truths politicians use to express themselves, and explores the meaning of terms, phrases and concepts that have become part of our daily vocabulary.

The Indo-Aryan Origins and Other Vedic Issues
Aditya Prakashan; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8177421158; First Edition; Softcover; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
This book contains studies by a well-known Greek Indologist who repeatedly considers the thorny problem of Indoaryan origins and finds its solution in indigenism. The studies examine various aspects of the Indo-European common heritage and of the Vedic Tradition. One study analyses the position of the early Hittite Culture in relation to the other IE branches and especially Vedic. Another traces the common names of deities in the different IE cultures. Two studies compare Vedic and Mesopotamian and Vedic and Egyptian interconnections respectively. Others examine purely Vedic issues like the religio-philosophical thought in the Vedas and the real meaning of the words pur 'defensive structure ' and samudra 'confluence of waters, ocean'. In all these studies the Vedic inheritance emerges as the oldest of all IE traditions, older than even the Near eastern cultures; the bulk of the Rgveda hymns appear to have been composed in the 4th millennium; and the Indoaryans are shown to have been residing in North-West India (and Pakistan) since about 5000 BCE. The writer arrives at these conclusions by examining and comparing evidences from the linguistic, literary, anthropological and archaeological fields (and from Genetics).

Vedic and Indoeuropean Studies
Aditya Prakashan; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8177421379; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Almost all the studies in this volume deal with subjects of Vedic and I(ndo-)E(uropean) provenance, i.e. relations of Vedic with Greek, Latin etc. and the fabricated Proto-Indo-European itself. Moreover, all the essays kick off from the RV (Rgveda). They move centripetally from the RV to the diverse areas of Anthropology, History, Linguistics, Philosophy, Poetry and Religion, examining one or other aspect from a new perspective and leading to new unexpected conclusions. When the evidences from Sanskrit and the RV are cosidered, the current theories about, for instance, the origin and development of language and religion are seen to be faulty and in need of thorough revision.;In addition, the cumulative evidences from all these different areas (and others) show that the Indoaryans are indigenous to India from at least the 7th millennium BCE, that Vedic is much older than any other IE language and closest to the Proto-Indo-European mother tongue and that all past and current IE studies should be scratched and a fresh start be made, if it is still thought to be necessary.;;Dr. Nicholas Kazanas is Greek-born. He was educated chiefly in Britain. He read English Literature in University College; Economics and Philosophy at the School of Economic Science; Sanskrit in the School of Oriental and African Studies - all in London. He did his post-graduate studies at SOAS and in Pune and Varanasi. He taught for some years in London. For more than ;20 years now he is the Director of Omilos Meleton, a Cultural Institute in Athens. He has various publications in Greek; several peer-reviewed academic Journals, Western and Indian, have printed his articles on Indology.

Colored Cosmopolitanism: The Shared Struggle for Freedom in the United States and India
Orient BlackSwan/Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8178243539; Hardcover; New; New; 
Colored Cosmopolitanism is the first detailed examination of both ends of this transnational encounter. Nico Slate tells the stories of neglected historical figures, like the “Eurasian” scholar Cedric Dover, and offers a stunning glimpse of people we thought we knew. Prominent figures such as Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, Swami Vivekananda, Booker T. Washington, W.E.B. Du Bois, and Martin Luther King, Jr., emerge as never before seen. Slate reveals the full gamut of this exchange—from selective appropriations, to blatant misunderstandings, to a profound empathy—as African Americans and South Asians sought a united front against racism, imperialism, and other forms of oppression.Printed Pages: 344. 101959

The Path of the Yoga Sutras: A Practical Guide to the Core of Yoga
Sounds True/TBI; New Delhi, India; 1604074299; Softcover; New; 
One of the great gifts of the yogic path is that it returns us to a life of simplicity, even as we go about our lives in a world of growing complexity. Through practice, we ultimately find the freedom to be who we really are, and allow others do the same. This was Patanjali's original intention when he penned his legendary sutras. But when a text is over 2,000 years old, important things can get lost in translation. For today's yoga student looking to take their practice "off the mat and into the world," Nicolai Bachman presents The Path of the Yoga Sutras. By organizing the sutras into 51 core concepts that support the Western student in germinating and blossoming these potent "seed" teachings, Bachman has created a breakthrough tool for integrating yoga philosophy and practice, whatever your level of experience.

Nature, Environment and Society: Conservation, Governance and Transformation in India
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8125045325; Hardcover; New; New; 
The future of humanity lies uncertain as nature falls prey to the loot and plunder initiated in the name of development, growth and progress today. As the vast riches of the earth continue to be endangered, a global consciousness regarding the importance of natural resources, biodiversity, etc. is on the rise. Given such a scenario, what is required is further understanding of man’s interaction with the environment.This contributory volume examines the interrelationship between nature and society in South Asia. It focuses on four points: perception of natural resources during colonial rule, conservation of nature, role of governments in administering environment, and transformation of nature as a result of development or industrial projects. The book divided into three broad themes, analyses the major decisions taken in India with regard to environment after Independence and their consequences; the relationship between communities which consider natural environment as an essential part of their identity, and as a key factor for social, political and economical issues; and the urban explosion and/or the construction of infrastructure such as dams or roads that have impacted the relationship between different social groups and their territory. It also examines the set-up (policy and stakes), process and consequences (often the displacement of populations) of such projects in three different states of India.Printed Pages: 260. 101842

The pressure on women to remain forever young can make menopause a time you approach with dread. The thought of battling with hot flushes, uncontrollable weight gain, brittle bones, mood swings and memory loss can plunge you into depression. Is menopause really the end of life as you know it? Nicole Jaff understands the pressures and the confusion experienced by women in menopause or approaching menopause and acts as their guide through the maze of conflicting theories, the advertisements of companies offering cure-alls and the array of medical options offered by doctors. Nicole explains the theories, the claims and the myths surrounding menopause. She uses numerous case studies of women who have come to her for counselling to illustrate womens concerns to support her central themeeach woman is different and so the treatment of menopausal symptoms needs to be individually designed. A one-size-fits-all approach is of no benefit to women.Printed Pages: 384. 104744

The Art of Sanskrit Poetry: An Introduction to Language and Poetics
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8121510791; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 19 Cms x 25 Cms 
This book is both an introduction to Sanskrit and an investigation into the relationship between nine basic affective states (bhava) and the form they take in the absence of self-interest (tatasthya) according to the theory of Indian aesthetics as developed in the Dhvanyaloka and the Abhinavabharati. To illustrate the process of aesthetic appreciation the different categories of suggestion (dhvani) in a continuous twelfth century poetic text (kavya), and the various forms of aesthetic experience (rasa) which the suggestions initiate, are analysed consecutively. The aspects of culture, mythology, astronomy, botany, etc., which were particularly characteristic of mediaeval India, are discussed in the notes on the basis of references to Vedic, Upanisadic, Epic, and Puranic texts, as well as to other anthologies of poetry, but also to recent scientific literature in order to explicate them in a more multidisciplinary context. The grammatical section is based on the text. The vocabulary facilitates alternative translations and hence different suggestions and aesthetic experiences. The General Index includes explanations of all grammatical forms and translations of Sanskrit technical terms plus cross references of English-Sanskrit and Latin-English-Sanskrit regarding flora and fauna.

Pearls of the Orient: Asian Treasures from the Wellcome Library
Serindia Publications; Chicago, USA; 2003; 0906026601; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 9 x 12.25 Inches 
The Wellcome Library in London preserves one of the major collections in Europe of manuscripts, printed books and pictorial material relating to Asia. This is largely due to the enthusiasm and vision of the American-born pharmacist and philanthropist, Sir Henry Wellcome. Although celebrated as a library devoted to medical history and related topics, the Asian Collections document in text and illustration practically every area of human endeavour found among the many peoples and cultures of the East. The Wellcome Trust, an independent research-funding charity originating from Wellcome's will, supports the Library and its work today as an international resource for the history and understanding of the medicine. This lavishly illustrated book conveys the richness and diversity of Wellcome's legacy in a series of studies contributed by experts from the UK, Germany and Russia, all of whom have worked on the Wellcome Asian Collections over the last 25 years. Each chapter reflects a different region of Asia, its peoples and culture, in which something of the variety of the Asian Collections preserved in the Wellcome Library can be appreciated. The different languages and their scripts, the various materials used for writing, the multiplicity of cultural and religious backgrounds and their antiquity are exemplified in the Asian Collections. Today they constitute a major resource for study and research of Asia's cultural and social history so beautifully illustrated in this publication.

22161 Nighat M.Gandhi
Alternative Realities: Love in the Lives of Muslim Women
Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789383260324; Softcover; New; 
“Who hasn’t been in love? At least once in their lifetime? People think only a man and a woman can make a couple. But, the truth is, anybody can fall in love with anybody. A man can fall in love with a man, a woman can fall in love with a woman. But society doesn’t accept such love” – Nisho in ‘Rakhi Sawant of Sind’ Alternative Realities is a travelogue, a memoir, a satire and a feminist critique of Muslim women’s lives, interwoven with the author’s own ongoing struggles as a Muslim woman. Each chapter presents personal stories of women living in cities, small towns and villages in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, the three lands to which Nighat Gandhi belongs. In writing their stories, she attempts to break the silence enshrouding Muslim women’s sexuality and the ways in which they negotiate the restrictions placed on their freedoms within the framework of their culture. Women like Ghazala, who prefers the life of a second wife, ‘living like a married single woman’, to being bound within the ties of a conventional marriage, Nusrat and QT who believe theirs is a normal marriage, except that they are both women. Nisho, who refuses to accept that her trans-sexuality should deny her the right to love and Firdaus, writer and feminist, who can walk out of a loveless marriage but not give up on love, with or without marriage. Nighat also explores her own story as a woman who dared to make choices that pitted her against her family and cultures. Alternative Realities is her jihad or struggle to deconstruct the demeaning stereotypes that prevail about all Muslim women. It is a reflection of the myriad ways in which, despite these misogynistic forces, they continue to weave webs of love and peace in their own lives and in the lives of those they live with. 109612

The Sikh Gurus and the Sikh Society
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1975; 8121503035; Second Revised Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
The Sikh Gurus and the Sikh Society essays to present a social analysis of the facts, factors and forces that attended the origin and evolution of the Sikh society in the sixteenth and seventeenth century. Originating as a protestant faith within the broader framework of contemporary Hinduism and more or less in a line with other earlier and contemporary protestant faiths and cults of northern India, the Nanak-panth achieved nevertheless and in less than half-a-century, an integrity and identity of its own and provided for itself a solid secular base, which other contemporary protestant sects and cults could not do. It also confronted contemporary Islam in Indian and despite violent political conflicts with contemporary Muslim rulers, sought consciously to work out a socio-cultural synthesis of the two cultures without allowing any sufferance to their basic tenets derived from Hinduism. The monograph provides a skilful analysis of the medieval socio-religious, economic and political situation to show how the Sikh Gurus and the expanding community of their sishyas (=Sikhs) responded actively and creatively to the contemporary situation and became stronger and more well-knit. In the process of this analysis many new insights have been presented, many new suggestions and interpretations offered and many new questions raised. Of the two long appendices one is given to an academic analysis of the historical antecedents and of the nature and character of sahaj which is the highest mystical experience in Guru Nanak's faith; another brings the story of Sikhism and the Sikh society uptodate, that is, from the death of Guru Gobind Singh to the beginning of the twentieth century.

22167 Niharranjan Ray (Author), John W. Hood (Tr.) & Sumit Sarkar (Frwd)
History of the Bengali People: From Earliest Times to the Fall of the Sena Dynasty (Second Edition)
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8125050531; Second Edition; Softcover; New; 
Niharranjan Ray’s highly acclaimed magnum opus, Bangalir Itihas: Adi Parva, translated here as History of the Bengali People is a seminal work on the history of the Bengalis from the earliest times to the beginning of the Muslim rule in India. As much a work of literature as of history, this book is not a story of kings and the extension of their power but of the life of ordinary people. Thus, through detailed, methodical discussions on origins of the various peoples, their language and literature, science, trade and commerce, religious practices and rituals, there emerges a vivid picture of society and its development through the passage of time. This able translation by J. W. Hood has retained the vibrancy and subtle nuances of the Bengali original. In his Foreword to this edition of the translation, Sumit Sarkar writes: ‘Niharranjan Ray was, indeed, a towering figure among my generation of historians. But not many scholars are familiar with his writings these days. The new edition of the English translation, which has done full justice to the original version, hopefully will rectify this.’Printed Pages: 660. 101896

Moksha Prosody
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2013; 9525667472; New; 
iMoksha prosody/i provides an acoustic analysis of data pertaining to the main prosodic features, especially of the correlates of word stress, in Moksha. The principal research questions in the book are related to the role of vowel duration and vowel quality as possible cues of stressedness. Data of fundamental frequency are used to establish the effect of higher level prosodic units upon the manifestations of word stress. The analysis is based on the materials of Central Moksha dialects (the prototype of the literary language) recorded in four localities of the Atyuryevo, Kovylkino, Krasnoslobodsk, and Temnikov regions. The description of the framework of the present experimental investigation and of its results is preceded by an overview of the earlier findings concerning the segmental structure and the prosody of Moksha. Several appendices provided in this book contain a map of the Moksha dialects, a list of test words, and sets of additional data obtained in the acoustic analyses. Printed Pages: 119. 116216

Tantra Yoga is a way of life...a practice based upon the philosophy of Human Experience, by means of which the Wisdom of Reality can become a part of one's innermost Nature. The Tantra is the way of the Yogi-Mystic of the East, who, through practice of this Yoga, is able to transmute the normal "Mortal-Consciousness" into "Cosmic-Consciousness", and so experience the Blissful Joys of Reality. This book summarizes the tradition of Tantra Yoga from its origin and development in the earliest times to the present. The spread of tantrism...Animist, Hindu, Jain, Buddhist and Sufic...from the original centres to Tibet, and thence to the West, is discussed, and the influence of this special esoteric teaching on both science and religion, is indicated. The philosophical, psychological and practical aspects of Tantra Yoga are presented, with detailed chapters on the Tantric Cosmology, Theory of Evolution, Concept of Vibration, Alchemy, Symbolism, Ritual, Rite and Sadhana (Yoga practice). Light is shed on the problems and joys which underlie the experience of life, and practical methods are indicated for overcoming the "obscuring" factors and for attaining the Tantric Realization. The symbolism and esoteric "language" is indicated and explained through the medium of sixty six beautiful colour plates, and the explanations are clarified and supported by quotations from relevant authoritative texts such as the Bhagavad Gita, Upanishads, Tibetan Book of the Dead, Hevajra Tantra, Mahanirvana Tantra and original texts, as also from the works of leading scholars. This book is a concise guide through the inner principles and outer practices of Tantra Yoga. Printed Pages: 1353 with 66 four-colour illustrations. 027985

Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0143103059; First Edition; Paperback; New; 16 x 23 Cm 
Rumi Vasi is ten years, two months, thirteen days, two hours, forty-two minutes and six seconds old. The probability of her walking home from school with John Kemble is 0.2142, a probability severely reduced by the lacy frock and thick woollen tights she is forced to wear by her father. Numbers have filled Rumi’s world since she first learned to count. It was on a trip to India at the age of eight that her mathematical powers acquired their almost supernatural significance. When she returned home to Cardiff, her destiny was sealed: she was now the town’s ‘maths prodigy’. But Rumi is growing up and numbers no longer occupy her every waking moment: she abandons her homework to seek out friendship and replaces equations with stories from Malory Towers. And, as the family’s stark isolation intensifies, so too does Rumi’s desire for love. A dazzling novel of high aspirations and deep longing, Nikita Lalwani’s debut captures brilliantly the battle to come of age in an emotional and comic hinterland where history, arithmetic and cumin seeds all play a part.

Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2007; 9517469233; New; 
Suomalaisyritykset olivat maailmansotien välisenä aikana onnistuneet nostamaan tuotantonsa jalostusastetta, mutta vasta 1950- ja 1960-luvuilla tässä kehityksessä tapahtui lopullinen läpimurto: suurten investointien myötä Suomen metsäteollisuuden painopiste siirtyi sahatavaran ja sellun tuotannosta paperin ja kartongin valmistukseen. Läpimurto oli mahdollinen, kun Suomi oli onnistunut murtautumaan niiden kauppapoliittisten esteiden läpi, joita omaa paperiteollisuuttaan suojelevat Länsi-Euroopan maat olivat asettaneet rajoilleen.

Raamatullinen Sota
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2010; 9525031608; New; 
Tutkimus kartoittaa Raamatun käyttöä ja vaikutusta vuoden 1918 tapahtumien selittämisessä ennen toista maailmansotaa. Kirja osoittaa, että Raamattua käytettiin laajasti uskonnollisista tai poliittisista vakaumuksista riippumatta. Lopunajalliset visiot kiehtoivat yhtä hyvin piispaa, vallankumouksellisia kuin suomenruotsalaista modernistirunoilijaa. Yhteiskuntaa ja kapinaa katsottiin Paavalin esivaltaopetuksen silmin. Kristuksen seuraamisen etiikalla oli laaja vaikutushistoria. Toisaalta se tarjosi pohjan kuvauksille terrorin uhreista ja antoi perusteita rangaistusvaatimuksille. Toisaalta sen avulla sotakuolema voitiin esittää ihanteellisessa ja jälkipolvia velvoittavassa valossa, johon saattoi kytkeytyä sovinnon ja anteeksiannon sävyjäkin. Printed Pages: 301. 114568

22191 Nikolaus Ritt
Selfish Sounds and Linguistic Evolution: A Darwinian Approach to Language Change
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2004; 0521826713; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 228 x 152 Mm 
This book takes an exciting new perspective on language change, by explaining it in terms of Darwin’s evolutionary theory. Looking at a number of developments in the history of sounds and words, Nikolaus Ritt shows how the constituents of language can be regarded as mental patterns, or ‘memes’, which copy themselves from one brain to another when communication and language acquisition take place. Memes are both stable in that they transmit faithfully from brain to brain, and active in that their success at replicating depends upon their own properties. Ritt uses this controversial approach to challenge established models of linguistic competence, in which speakers acquire, use, and shape language. In Darwinian terms, language evolution is something that happens to, rather than through, speakers, and the interests of linguistic constituents matter more than those of their human ‘hosts’. This book will stimulate debate among evolutionary biologists, cognitive scientists and linguists alike. • Provides a new and controversial perspective on language change, which is likely to stimulate academic argument and further research • Demonstrates how the emerging new paradigm of memetics might be operationalised and put to the test • Combines insights from evolutionary biology, cognitive science and historical linguistics, and is therefore truly interdisciplinary Contents 1. Introduction; 2. The historical perspective; 3. Approaching ‘language change’; 4. The Darwinian approach; 5. Generalising Darwinism; 6. Towards an evolutionary theory of language; 7. What does all this imply for the study of language change?; 8. How to live with feet, if one happens to be a morph-meme; 9. The prosodic evolution of English word forms or the great trochaic conspiracy; 10. Conclusion. Printed Pages: 342 with 31 figures. 012800

Studies in the Dharmasastra of Manu
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1980; 8121502187; First Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
This book of Professor Banerjee is an attempt to present Manusmriti as an outstanding sociological work of ancient India with an unusually comprehensive outlook and to evaluate its impact on the organization of the Hindu society. Although Manu has been succeeded by a number of sociologists such as Narada, Brihaspati and others, who have made valuable contributions to the development of sociological thinking in India, his influence upon the organization of the Hindu society persists till this day. On this account and also on account of the absence of any effective dynamic to initiate the process of wholesome change in the social milieu, the Hindu society, as Professor Banerjee has tried to show, has been suffering from the evil of stagnation till this day. This circumstance calls for the ways and means which can break through the state of stagnation and being about social progress among the Hindus. This is, then, a book which is bound to be of interest to the students of sociology, law, the history of ancient India and the history of Sanskrit literature. It is likely to be of special use to those who are actively engaged in social work. Printed Pages: 122. 000378

A Descriptive Study of Bengali Words
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2014; 1107064244; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book is a study of modern Bengali words based on the data obtained from a corpus of written texts. The author has used all kinds of data information and examples from the Bengali corpus to shape up this text. He has made an empirical attempt to analyse Bengali words and other lexical items from the perspective of their surface orthographic representation to understand the internal structure of their composition with a focus on their functional roles in various contexts of their usage within texts. In order to achieve this goal he has established a link between the internal composition and external representation of words within an interface of usage and function of words in texts. The issues addressed in the book include decomposition of words interpretation of function of word-formative elements and analysis of lexico-semantic identities of the word-formative elements in relation to their function in words.Printed Pages: 374. 101441

Historical Development of Food and Agriculture in Bengal
Gen Next Publication/Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789380222677; Hardcover; New; New; 
The book–'Historical Development of Agriculture and Food in Bengal' is first attempt of its kind in India. Despite the time and again change of geographical area Bengal remained united in its diversity and rich with its mixed people and culture. As a result this fertile land was strong to overcome the disastrous events. With a large population it continued to be food-deficit even in eighties of last century when also farming was 'bargdars' (share-croppers) receiving right to 'barga-land' farming in Bengal became 'small' and 'marginal' farming. Applying their experience, skill and innovativeness they increased food production and the state achieved self-sufficiency in food by nineties of last century. Subsequently, farmers started switching over slowly to shor t -dur a t ion c a sh- c rops l ike vegetables, flowers etc. to enhance income. The book presents twelve periods of time from 'early weapon-making and ' searching natural foods' passed through nine other historical periods to reach 'modern agriculture' and 'ready-to-eat food' era of this century. The dramatic course of events traced in this land although different could show there the path to trace their course of events. All together would form the valuable 'roots' of anchorage for the country to progress and develop. Hence this book, it is hoped, would be useful for people interested in understanding course of events for progress of food and agriculture in their state as also the country with passing of time.Printed Pages: 311. 106106
