History of the Christian Church, 7 Vols
Christian World Imprints/B.R. Publishing Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2016; 9789351480853; Hardcover; New; New; 
History of the Christian Church brings out a captivating blend of human history and God's providence. This realistically depicting work digs out those important aspects that are actually missing in modern historical narratives. Moreover, the facts and figures for each period of History are backed by copious footnotes and scriptural references. The pragmatic outlook scrupulously frames out a roadmap to help the Church in knowing, where they were and where they have to move ahead.The author starts with an examination of the preparation for Christianity in Judaism and the heathen world. The expedition moves on to enshrine intermediate phases of this historical compendium, i.e., Nicene Christianity, Mediaeval Christianity, and Middle Ages. In its concluding section, it sets forth a general introduction to modern church history and a thorough analysis of the fruitful era of the Reformation, thereby encapsulating Protestant and Calvinistic movements started by Martin Luther, Huldreich Zwingli and John Calvin; in Germany and Switzerland to the close of the 16th century. Also, it beautifully presents the life & resurrection of Jesus Christ, and biographical sketches of various historical personalities.This intelligible woven Church History covers each and every aspect of the subject in 7 vols. (8 physical volumes). Inter-alia Vol. 1 covers Apostolic Christianity, A.D. 1-100; Vol. 2 focuses on Ante-Nicene Christianity, A.D. 100-325; Vol. 3 is all about Nicene and Post-Nicene Christianity (The Church in Union with the Roman Empire) from Constantine the Great to Gregory the Great, A.D. 311-590; Vol. 4 highlights Mediaeval Christianity (The Church Among the Barbarians) from Gregory I to Gregory VII, A.D. 590-1073; Vol. 5 (Part I) brings into limelight Middle Ages from Gregory VII to Boniface VIII, A.D. 1049-1294; Vol. 5 (Part II) talks about Middle Ages from Boniface VIII to Martin Luther, A.D. 1294-1517; Vol. 6 breaks the dawn of the Reformation by detailing on Modern Christianity, The German Reformation till the Diet of Augsburg, A.D. 1517-1530; and Vol. 7 continues to enshrine period of Modern Christianity by showcasing The Swiss Reformation, A.D. 1519-1605.This laborious research work is equipped with Footnotes, Charts, Illustrations, Maps, Tables, Appendices, Indexes, and Addendas wherever required. The book will certainly lure the interest of Historians, Theologians, Missionaries, Philosophers, Church Ministers, Christian Laity, Church Clergies, Church Libraries, Christian Colleges, Seminaries & Institutions, Researchers and Students, alike. 110813

The Book of Silk
Thames & Hudson; London, UK; 1993; 0500236623; First Edition; Hardcover; Very Good; Very Good; 25 x 31 Cm 
The Book of Silk tells the rich history of this remarkable material through five millennia, reproducing hundreds of fabrics, furnishings and garments from all parts of the world. From ancient China, where the secret of reeling silkworm cocoons was first discovered, the narrative leads by the legendary Silk Routes to Byzantium and the Islamic world, to Ottoman Turkey and India - and on to the Renaissance, and the baroque and rococo silks of western Christendom. In modern times the fashion industry yields a wonderful array of designs, from Fortuny and Balenciaga, Poiret and Schiaparelli. At every stage, silk's status as the most prized fabric of all ensured that it drew the most creative talents of every period, from anonymous Chinese masters to the celebrated couturiers of France and Italy. A dazzling selection of illustrations, many drawn from private collections, reveals silk's omnipresence in couture and decoration, carpets, embroidery and even painting. Complete with a detailed reference section that includes terms and technical processes, collecting and care, galleries and museums, and a bibliography, The Book of Silk will appeal to anyone interested in history, fashion, beauty and textiles. Printed Pages: 256 with 274 illustrations, 180 in colour. Slightly rubbed dust jacket. 018285

Living Rock : Buddhist, Hindu and Jain Cave Temples in the Western Deccan
Marg Publications; Mumbai, India; 2013; 8192110672; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 23 x 29 Cm 
Living Rock offers new perspectives into the fascinating world of Buddhist, Hindu and Jain cave sites in the western Deccan. From the 2nd century BCE to the 10th century CE, rock cut temples and monasteries appeared at various sites in the subcontinent - most notably across the western Deccan. Carved on the edge of the basaltic plateau, the cave sites were strategically placed near ancient trade routes and fertile land, showcasing architectural spaces designed for a variety of worship practices and monastic uses. With a wealth of material evidence, Living Rock presents elected case studies that explore fresh avenues of investigation. Contributions by archaeologists, art historians, historians and scholars of religion trace the cultural and religious phenomena associated with the development of these sites. Some proposed investigative models suggest new relationships between literary and visual evidence; others connect cave centres to religious and artistic contexts located outside the western Deccan, placing the rock-cut monuments in a wider cultural landscape.

Abandon: A Romance
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0670049603; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 13 Cms x 20 Cms 
John Macmillan is an Englishman in California studying Sufism, and in particular Rumi, the thirteenth-century Islamic mystic and at present the best-selling poet in America. Traveling to Damascus, he hears rumors of a secret, heretical manuscript that might have escaped from Iran during the chaos of its Revolution, and taking a message back to California, ends up encountering Camilla Jensen, an open if somewhat wayward Californian, who seems in some way connected to the world of fugitive texts. Following the trail of mystical poems through Spain and India to Iran, and trying to unravel the mystery that lies behind Camilla, John finds himself descending ever deeper into a world of passion and bewilderment. Then, suddenly, a manuscript appears, and Camilla disappears, leaving him closer to an understanding of some things, yet further from a real understanding of what is most important to him. Abandon is a mystical romance in the classic Persian tradition brought into the bleached sunlight of Southern California today. But it is also an unexpected and distinctive look at the clash between Islam and the West, at a time when Los Angeles is partly run by Iranian exiles and the long-closed cities of Iran are slowly opening up to Westerners. Eerie and incandescent, Abandon displays Iyer’s unique gift for showing the dance of dreams and desires and preconceptions that ensues when cultures collide. Printed Pages: 368. 002732

The Open Road: The Global Journey of the Fourteenth Dalai Lama
Penguin/Viking; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0670082244; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
One of the most acclaimed and perceptive observers of globalism and Buddhism now gives us the first serious consideration—for Buddhist and non-Buddhist alike—of the Fourteenth Dalai Lama’s work and ideas as a politician, scientist, and philosopher. Pico Iyer has been engaged in conversation with the Dalai Lama (a friend of his father’s) for the last three decades—an ongoing exploration of his message and its effectiveness. Now, in this insightful, impassioned book, Iyer captures the paradoxes of the Dalai Lama’s position: though he has brought the ideas of Tibet to world attention, Tibet itself is being remade as a Chinese province; though he was born in one of the remotest, least developed places on earth, he has become a champion of globalism and technology. He is a religious leader who warns against being needlessly distracted by religion; a Tibetan head of state who suggests that exile from Tibet can be an opportunity; an incarnation of a Tibetan god who stresses his everyday humanity. Moving from Dharamsala, India—the seat of the Tibetan government-in-exile—to Lhasa, Tibet, to venues in the West, where the Dalai Lama’s pragmatism, rigor, and scholarship are sometimes lost on an audience yearning for mystical visions, The Open Road illuminates the hidden life, the transforming ideas, and the daily challenges of a global icon.

Tanjavur Brahahisvara: An Architectural Study
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 1995; 8185503044; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 27 x 37 Cm 
The Brhadisvara temple also known as the Rajarajesvara temple built by Raja Raja I in 1010 A.D. has been acclaimed as the finest achievement of Chola art. The perfection of its architectural plan, its impeccable balance, the sculptural reliefs and murals and the bronzes have been commented upon by art historians. Some inscriptions have been studied as invaluable sources for evidence of the administrative machinery of the Cholas. Each of these facets emerge from an integral vision where each part is related to the whole. In its totality, it is not a mere architectural monument, instead it is a living bio-organism which has served as a centre of social, economic and political life in many succeeding centuries. Movements travelled to it and in turn its influence permeated many others parts both far and near. During the Vijayanagar period, it had very active dialogue with Andhra and Karnataka; during the Maratha regime with North India and Western India. The significance of the temple and its patterns is not at the level of archaeology alone, it is exceedingly important as a centre of the region which provides milieu for interaction with other parts of India as also South East Asia. Its artistic excellence lies in the perfect balance of the parts and the whole, the architecture, sculpture, painting, the stone and the bronze images, the idols within, the reliefs without. The inscriptions on the walls of the temple provide a vast corpus of information at the level of economic, social, cultural, organizational and administrative patterns and structures. The Chola monuments, the Brhadisvara temple at Tanjavur in particular along with the Gangaikondacholapuram temple, have attracted the attention of archaeologists, epigraphists, literary critics, musicians, dancers, craft specialists, sociologists and anthropologists. The present volume on the Architecture of the Brhadisvara temple is the first of technical monographs as a result of the project. It is only appropriate that the architectural plan of the monument should precede the other studies relating to inscriptions, sculptural programme on inner and outer wall, murals in the garbhagrha, karanas on the upper storeys, inscriptions and much else. A standard code has been devised so that all subsequent studies will follow the same code. It is the monument which provides centrality to the region and constitute the steel frame for further studies on other aspects. Kapila Vatsyayan.

Maps of Delhi
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2017; 9789385285509; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This groundbreaking publication presents an exquisite study of the maps of Delhi, from the onset of the 19th century till the master plan of 2021. It is the first organised collection of the maps of the city, a breathtakingly illustrated cartographic history of the capital. Dr Guerrieri has described each map individually, elaborating on its idiosyncrasies, aesthetic details, and rich historical information. The book includes a chronology of magnificent ancient and modern hand-drawings as also digital maps of the city. The evolution of planning and architecture, which elegantly unfolds through the maps, mirrors the political, social, and historical progression of the capital.Maps of Delhi is both beautiful and stimulating, while also offering deeply insightful commentary for the most discerning of scholars, and is an indisputable milestone for those wanting to research the capital. The book reveals, as A.G. Krishna Menon notes in the foreword, the charm of printed maps and the many pleasures and insights they offer when they are physically handled. It brings to light how Delhi is, truly, 'a city of cities'. Printed Pages: 432 with numerous colour illustrations & 66 maps. 112628

Dewana, Khoimala and the Holy Banyan Tree
Seagull Books; Kolkata, India; 2004; 8170462584; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 13 Cms x 20 Cms 
'The hero of our story, Dewana, appears in the very first episode.' 'What does dewana mean?' 'Someone who's mad.' The image of this love-crazed hero haunts Khoimala, the gentle brahman girl, and her low-caste sweetheart, the young boatman, Golak, as they live out their doomed love story: doomed because social and religious taboos damn their forbidden love. On the one hand, eighteenth century rural Bengal, quickening to the pace of urban development, undergoes swift changes, as local markets thrive and traders flourish; on the other; a destitute young woman who is trapped in the darkness of harshly prescriptive custom to the despair of the boatman lad who can neither rescue her nor declare his love. In this masterful and deeply sensitive tale, Mahasweta Devi once again inter-weaves a social tapestry and the detail of human lives, creating a powerful tale of love, longing and passion set in a rime when the British are beginning to consolidate their hold on Bengal. Mahasweta Devi is one of India's foremost writers. Her powerful, satiric fiction has won her recognition in the form of the Sahitya Akademi (1979), Jnanpith (1996) and Ramon Magsaysay (1996) awards, amongst several other literary honours. She was also awarded the Padmasree in 1986, for her activist work amongst dispossessed tribal communities. 000985

22879 Pingali Suranna; Translated from Telugu By Velcheru Narayana Rao and David Shulman
The Sound of the Kiss or the Story That Must Never be Told
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2003; 019566499X; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Composed in the mid-sixteenth century, Pingali Suranna's Telugu novel The Sound of the Kiss, or The Story That Must Never Be Told could be considered the first novel written in South Asia. Suranna's masterpiece comes from a period of intense creativity in Telugu, when great poets produced strikingly modern innovations. The novel explodes preconceived ideas about early South Indian literature: for example, that the characters lack interiority, that the language is formulaic, and that Telugu texts are mere translations of earlier Sanskrit works. Employing the poetic style known as campu, which mixes verse and prose, Pingali Suranna's work transcends our notions of traditional narrative. "I wanted to have the structure of a complex narrative no one had ever known," he said of his great novel, "with rich evocations of erotic love, and also descriptions of gods and temples that would be a joy to listen to." The Sound of the Kiss is both a gripping love story, a complex rel igious allegory and a profound meditation on mind and language. Shulman and Rao include a thorough introduction that provides a broader understanding of, and appreciation for, the complexities and subtleties of this text. This magnificent novel is hard to put down, and will appeal to anyone interested in classical Indian literature. Printed Pages: 224. 033791

An Introduction to Quakerism
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0521841119; First Edition; Hardcover; Brand New; Brand New; 228 x 152 Mm 
This is the first comprehensive introduction to Quakerism which balances a history of the theology of the Quakers or Friends with an overview of present day practice. It charts the growth of the Quaker movement through the 1650s and 1660s, its different theological emphasis in the eighteenth century, and the schisms of the nineteenth century which resulted in the range of Quaker traditions found around the world today. The book focuses in particular on notions of 'endtime', 'spiritual intimacy', and what counts as 'the world' as key areas of theological change. The second half of the book uses extracts from Quaker texts to highlight differences in belief and approach between the different traditions and analyses their future prospects. The book is generously illustrated and includes numerous diagrams to help the reader. Undergraduate and graduate students will find this an essential introduction to the Quaker movement. • Balances a history of Quaker theology with an overview of present day practice • Includes numerous illustrations, supplementary text panels, charts and diagrams • Comprehensively indexed and thoroughly cross-referenced Contents Introduction; Part I.

This is a book on basic Buddhism with a difference, for it is written by a monk who was native of Ceylon, a scholar and a well-known preacher and broadcaster in Ceylon. He had the Pali canon and the commentaries at his fingertips, so that his book is full of apposite stories and quotations of what the Buddha said-many of them appearing in English for the first time. In recent years a number of expositions of the Buddha's teachings have been published in English. But most of them lack authenticity and do not represent what the Buddha taught correctly. Hence the need for this authentic book based on the Four Noble Truths about suffering which are the central conception of Buddhism and on the Noble Eightfold Path which is Buddhism in practice. This should prove the standard textbook from which basic Buddhism or the Theravada is taught for many years to come. It cannot be stressed too strongly that the Mahayana Buddhism in Tibet, China and Japan is based on and developed out of this basic Buddhism of the Theravadins in Ceylon. Printed Pages: 280. 008870

A Hundred Small Steps
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2009; 817829950X; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
While previous reports have focused solely on the ‘big’ issues like capital account convertibility, bank privatization, and priority sector norms, A Hundred Small Steps: Report of the Committee on Financial Sector Reforms goes deep into other areas where reforms are less controversial, but perhaps as important. The report argues that we need a change in mindset for the financial sector, one that recognizes that efficiency, innovation, and value for money are as important for the poor as they are for our new Indian multinationals, and these will come from improved governance, new entry and competition. Indeed the Committee believes that the road to making Mumbai an international financial centre runs through every village in India. The report is divided into separate self-contained chapters; the underlying theme behind all the proposals is the need to enhance inclusion, growth, and stability by allowing players more freedom, even while strengthening the financial and regulatory infrastructure. The role of the government is to create an enabling environment by building sound financial infrastructure. The Committee has focused primarily on broad principles and directions, without entering too much into details of implementation. It emphasizes three important reasons for financial sector reform: to include more Indians in the growth process; to foster growth itself; and to improve financial stability, flexibility, and resilience and thus protect the economy against the kind of turbulence that is affecting the world today. The Committee recognizes this is a difficult time to propose financial sector reforms in India. The near meltdown of the US financial sector seems to be proof that markets and competition do not work. This is clearly the wrong lesson to take from the debacle. The right lesson is that markets and institutions do succumb occasionally to excesses, which is why regulators have to be vigilant. The report argues for skilled regulators who encourage growth and innovation even while working harder to contain risks. Printed Pages: 208. 028558
