23104 Paul Martin-Dubost, Foreword By Michel Postel
Ganesa: The Enchanter of the Three Worlds
Franco Indian Research Pvt. Ltd; Mumbai, India; 1997; 8190018434; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 23 Cms x 29 Cms 
To penetrate the interior of the great Hindu culture in company with Ganesa, the most popular God of the immense peninsula, is an adventure henceforth possible thanks to the book by Paul Martin-Dubost, who offers a complete study of this God with the elephant head, the dear son of Parvati and the great Lord Siva. We discover the legends which surround the stories of his birth, his prodigious exploits, his marriage, and all that touches upon his rites for more than 2,000 years. "It is quite rare to find a literary text, a panegyric hymn or an iconographic text that does not mention Ganesa, the benevolent God, the God with innumerable forms; during ten years Paul Martin-Dubost has engaged himself with the God in the great Sanskrit texts as also in inscriptions. This work dissipates the erroneous conceptions, current since long, notably because of the limited scope of the previous studies. The reader, as also the scholar, will discover a complete study of the iconography of Ganesa, the chief of the ganas, in the light of recent archaeological works. A commentary accompanies each of the 450 photographs which reveal the principal forms created between the 1st century BC and our own day. Printed Pages: 412 with 445 illustrations. 010684

23108 Paul N. Hasluck with an Introduction By Patrick Baty
House Decoration
Donhead Publishing Ltd; Dorset, UK; 2001; 1873394497; Reprint; Hard Cover; Brand New; 11.5 x 19 Inches 
Developments in the use of paint analysis techniques for researching the painted interiors and exteriors of our most prestigious historic buildings has been extremely important in helping to maintain the integrity of historic structures while they are being conserved. It has given a broader dimension to architectural study, in many cases by showing how particular buildings and rooms were used, and also offering a better appreciation of the nature and constituents of historic paint. Paul Hasluck’s useful little book, first published in 1897, will provide the conservation practitioner with a valuable background to the types of paints employed at the time; how they were mixed and applied as well as the composition and origin of the pigments that were used. Whilst ready mixed paint was available, it was often made up by the painter, so the techniques and constituents required for mixing paint form a useful section in this book, particularly where a colour match for existing paint may be required. The book offers interesting background information on the decoration of all types rooms and their architectural details. It also describes the origins of distemper and extols its virtues particularly for use in bedrooms, due to its cleanliness and healthy qualities. Contents: On colour and paints Pigments Oils, driers, varnishes, etc Tools used by painters How to mix oil paints Distemper or tempera painting Whitewashing and decorating a ceiling Painting a room Papering a room Embellishment of walls and ceilings Printed Pages: 176 with numerous illustrations. 026158

Disraeli: A Brief Life
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 1999; 0521669901; Paperback; New; 
This concise study of Disraeli, aimed at the general reader as much as at the student, stands in contrast to the many full-length studies which continue to appear. It focuses on the substantial reassessment of Disraeli's career and personality which is currently taking place. Particular reference is made to the role played in Disraeli's conception of life and politics by his Jewishness and his romanticism. The book also seeks to understand Disraeli in a European as well as a British frame of thought. Printed Pages: 256. 008696

Twitchhiker: How One Man Travelled the World By Twitter
Jaico Publishing House; Delhi, India; 8179929493; Softcover; New; 
The five rules of a Twitchhiker:1. You can only accept offers of travel and accommodation from people on Twitter.2. You can’t make any travel plans further than three days in advance. 3. You can only spend money on food, drink and anything that fits in your suitcase.4. If there is more than one offer, you choose. If there is only one, you have to take it within 48 hours 5. If you are unable to move on from a location within 48 hours, the challenge is over and you go home.Bored in the supermarket one day, Paul wonders how far he can get in 30 days through the goodwill of fellow ‘Twitter’ing social networkers. He sets his sights on Campbell Island near New Zealand the point on the planet opposite to his home in Newcastle. In an adventure wrapped in nonsense, he travels by car, bus, boat, plane and train, sleeps in five-star luxury and on no-star sofas, resorts to the hair of the dog in multiple time zones and schmoozes with Hollywood A-listers all the while wearing the same pair of underpants.Printed Pages: 336. 105441

Networks of Rebellion: Explaining Insurgent Cohesion and Collapse
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8121512867; First Indian Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
Rebel groups vary considerably, yet systematically, both vis-a-vis each other and over time. As a simple observation this may sound trivial until one realizes that it tends to be overlooked in both academic research and policy analysis. Networks of Rebellion is a major work. Paul Staniland’s use of the South Asian cases is especially significant. One cannot understand the effectiveness of insurgent organizations without analyzing the social ties in which they are embedded. The book draws primarily on new research materials from Kashmir, Afghanistan, and Sri Lanka. The author also builds an account that is thought-provoking, closely reasoned, and truly enlightening.

The Reflexive Nature of Awareness: A Tibetan Madhyamaka Defence
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2000; 8120817141; Hardcover; New; New; 
According to the Tibetan Tsong kha pa one of the eight difficult points in understanding Madhyamaka philosophy is the way in which Prasangika Madhyamaka does not accept even conventionally that reflexivity is an essential part of awareness-that in being aware there is also an awareness of being aware (rang rig). One of the most systematic and detailed refutations of Tsong kha pa`s approach to this issue can be found in the commentary to the ninth chapter of the Bodhicaryavatara by the rNying ma lama Mi pham (18456-1912), together with Mi pham`s own replies to his subsequent critics.Printed Pages: 287. 102402

Borders, Histories, Existences: Gender and Beyond
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8132102266; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This is an insightful historical work on borders and bordered existences, with special emphasis on the gender dimensions of these existences. The author argues that the experiences of women living on borders and in borderlands are definitive of those of the vulnerable communities who bear the brunt of the complex border and security issues. The conditions of migrant women, women peace campaigners, and victims of human trafficking and mobile diseases are presented as markers of bordered existences. Their history is one of negotiations with structures of control, leading to insecurity, subversion, endurance and a different kind of existence. Thus, this book adopts a critical feminist history angle. Borders, Histories, Existences: Gender and Beyond contends that borders are, by definition, lines of inclusion and exclusion established by the state. It analyses how states construct borders and try to make them static and rigid and how bordered existences, such as women, migrant workers, victims of human trafficking, etc., destabilise the rigid constructs. It explores the political conditions that have made borders problematic in post-colonial South Asia and how these borders have become regions of extreme control or violence. The book contains new research data and original theories and would provide crucial information to those studying colonial and post-colonial history, politics and international relations, South Asia studies and sociology.

Language and Maturation
The MIT Press; Cambridge, Massachussets, USA; 1978; 0262131323; Second Printing; Hard Cover; Very Good; Very Good; 6 x 9 Inches 
This book offers a unique overview of the current literature of language development. Beginning with an outline of the maturational changes that occur in linguistic knowledge in the period from birth to adulthood, it goes on to discuss the suggested causes for the changes and the controversies about the suggested causes. The theory of generative grammar advanced by Noam Chomsky was responsible for much of the excitement and interest that the study of language development has enjoyed over the past decade. Inevitably, however, some linguists have questioned whether Chomsky's hypothesis of an innate mechanism for language learning, distinct from other types of learning, is a valid model of the way children actually do acquire language competence. Present efforts are directed towards finding an explanation of development and processing of language in the cognitive and social functioning of the human being, but a clear understanding of the basis for language organization eludes proponents of both schools of thought. Language and Maturation summarizes some of the current findings on developmental language behavior in a concise, well-organized, and nonpartisan manner. It begins by describing the explanatory theories of language behavior in the adult and of language acquisition in the child that are current in the literature. The developmental course is then divided into the periods of infancy, early language development, and language development in middle and late childhood. Finally, the question of "adultlike" and "childlike" language behavior is discussed. Introducing each chapter are those questions most germane to an examination of that period of development. Some of the partial answers conclude sections of the discussion. Suitable for upper-level undergraduate or graduate students, the book is addressed not only to linguistics students but also to those preparing themselves to be psychologists, educators, and therapists. "I hope," Paula Menyuk writes in her introduction, "that readers of this book, that is, those interested in language development and processing, will find the questions and answers presented so intriguing and challenging that they themselves will become engaged in in-depth studies of the questions of language and maturation."

Bhutan: The Dragon Kingdom of Prayer
Timeless Books/TBI; New Delhi, India; Paulius Normant; Hardcover; New; New; 
The faraway country of Bhutan is also known as the Land of the Thunder Dragon. This small Himalayan Kingdom is, in the eyes of many, the embodiment of the last Shangri-La, a final refuge for the mystical wisdom of Buddhism and a paragon of spiritual happiness. The origin of the name of Bhutan is contentious even today. It might be that its name derives from the Sanskrit word bhu-uttan meaning high lands.The Bhutanese, however, call their country Druk Yul, The Land of the Thunder Dragon and themselves - drukpa. The national faith is a branch of the Tantric form of Mahayana Buddhism - Drukpa Kagyu. If we were to review the history of Bhutan, we would discover this country to be a land of legends. The name Druk Yul is related to legend. At the end of the 12th century, a prominent lama was in the act of sanctifying a monastery in Middle Tibet when a crack of thunder was heard. Thunder was, according to folk belief, the voice of a dragon (druk). The lama, bearing this in mind, named the monastery Druk and the teaching he founded was thus named Drukpa.

IN THE OLD AARNE/THOMPSON, Portugal was virtually non-existent, appearing in the bibliography of just three folktales. In 2003, the author of The Types of International Folktales (FFC 284–6) stretched his hand to the first manuscript of the Catalogue of Portuguese Folktales and included them in 700 types of his own manuscript. The Catalogue of Portuguese Folktales is now the first regional index that takes into account the classifications of the new “ATU”. But it displays its difference by electing its own affinities with old “AaTh” numbers, with regional catalogues, or even by offering new numbers. We can see a new face of the European folktale emerging, with a strong Mediterranean flavour. Printed Pages: 406. 113829

The Great Indian Middle Class (Updated with a New introduction)
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0143103253; First Edition; Paperback; New; 13 Cms x 20 Cms 
In this powerful and insightful critique, the author examines the evolution of the Indian middle class during the twentieth century, especially since Independence. He shows us how the middle class, guided by self-interest, is becoming increasingly insensitive to the plight of the underprivileged, and how economic liberalization has only heightened its tendency to withdraw from anything that does not relate directly to its material well-being. An essential read, this fresh edition updated with a new introduction analyses the transformation of the middle class in the decade since 1997 and seeks to reconcile the seemingly dichotomous aspects of our economy and polity.

Being Indian: The Truth About Why the 21st Century Will be India's
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 0143033425; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
This book is a new and dramatically different inquiry into what India and being Indian mean in the new millennium. Such an inquiry is especially relevant today when the world's largest democracy is also a nuclear power, a potentially major economic power poised to emerge as the second largest consumer market in the world, and a growing force in information technology. Misconceptions about India and Indians abound, fed by the stereotypes created by foreigners, and the myths about themselves projected by Indians. In Being Indian, Pavan K.Varma demolishes these myths and generalizations as he turns his sharply observant gaze on his fellow countrymen to examine what really makes Indians tick and what they have to offer the world in the 21st century. Varma's insightful analysis of the Indian personality and the culture that has created it reaches startling new conclusions on the paradoxes and contradictions that characterize Indian attitudes towards issues such as power, wealth and spirituality. How, for example, does the appalling indifference of most Indians to the suffering of the poor and the inequities of the caste system square with their enthusiastic championing of parliamentary democracy? And why do Indians have a reputation for being spiritual and `other-worldly' when their philosophy and tradition exalt the pursuit of material well-being —artha—as a principal goal of life? The book also examines India's future prospects as an economic, military and technological power, providing valuable pointers to the likely destiny of a nation of one billion people. Drawing on sources as diverse as ancient Sanskrit treatises and Bollywood lyrics, and illuminating his examples with a wealth of telling anecdotes, Pavan Varma creates a vivid and compelling portrait of Indians as he argues that they will survive and flourish in the new millennium precisely because of what they are, warts and all, and not because of what they think they are or would like to be. This book, which will stimulate reflection, discussion and controversy, is a must read for both foreigners who wish to understand Indians and Indians who wish to understand themselves.

Kama Sutra: The art of making love to a woman
Lustre Press/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 817436448X; Hardcover; New; New; 
A good lover has to be sensitive to a woman's needs.'Pavan K. Varma's new-age adaptation of Vatsyayana's cult classic Kama Sutra makes precisely this point. Keeping in mind the celebrated sage's instruction that men and women are equal partners in the act of consummation, Varma takes us on a witty journey through what has sometimes been seen as a 'heavy'manual on sex, and at others as a volume of titillating visuals. This adaptation is a serious tribute to the genius and vision of Vatsyayana, highlighting the 'modernity'of what he wrote two thousand years ago - that the fulfillment of women is at the heart of the experience of sex, and that the lines between sex and sensuality, and between social mores and individual desire are indeed fine and must be understood deeply.

Lucknow: Buildings, Begums and The British
Kalpaz Publications/Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789351281399; Hardcover; New; New; 
Lucknow: Buildings, Begums and The British is not about history; rather it is a book on heritage – defined as the legacy of physical artefacts and intangible attributes inherited from past generations. As a city , Lucknow has witnessed many upheavals during the last three centuries; from being the seat of Nawabi pomp and show to the imperiousness of Colonial rule. From being described as the Constantinople of the East to being decimated, demolished and “fairly improved off the face of this earth”. Although some aspects of Lucknow , especially few errant Nawabs and the siege of the Residency during 1857 are well known, the author has tried to focus on lesser-known aspects of the city, embellishing the text with interesting vignettes and tit-bits of information, accompanied by vintage images – in an attempt to present a holistic picture of the city , from its turbulent past, to whatever remains during its present times. The book, Lucknow: Buildings, Begums and The British by Dr PC Sarkar , showcases the heritage of the city in a nutshell, making it easy for those fascinated by the history and architecture of Lucknow . He focuses on some lesser known monuments and aspects of the city , including roles played by some influential women (read Begums) of the time and the British. The illustrations help the reader to understand and appreciate the monuments that the writer so passionately talks about. About The Author:- PC Sarkar holds a Ph.D in organic chemistry and is presently working as a scientist in the Indian Council of Agricultural Research, Govt. of India. He completed his schooling from St. Francis' College, Lucknow , followed by college education from Lucknow Christian College and Lucknow University . He imbibed a passion for the Nawabi and Colonial heritage of Lucknow during his childhood. He continued his love for the city, even though the call for a livelihood took him far from his roots, at a relatively young age. In addition to a specialized book on chemistry and several research publications in national and international journals pertaining to his profession.Printed Pages: 220. 106140

Religious Division and Social Conflict: The Emergence of Hindu Nationalism in Rural India
Social Science Press and Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8187358513; First Paperback Edition; Paperback; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
Religious Division and Social Conflict: The Emergence of Hindu Nationalism in Rural India is an ethnographic account of the emergence of Hindu nationalism in a tribal (adivasi) community in Chhattisgarh, central India. It is argued that the successful spread of Hindu nationalism in this area is due to the involvement of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), a militant Hindu nationalist organization, in local affairs. While active engagement in 'civilizing' strategies has enabled the RSS to legitimize its presence and endear itself to the local community, the book argues that participation in more aggressive strategies has made it possible for this organization to fuel and attach local tensions to a broader Hindu nationalist agenda. The book further argues that while the RSS is the active agent in this process, its specific impact is a function of its relation of opposition to the Church. The influence of the latter, which was well established in the area, has recently been challenged by the RSS. In order to protect and strengthen their respective positions of dominance, both institutions have been instrumental in dividing the local population. This division has often been expressed in conflict over land, healthcare and political leadership. The book engages with themes such as religion, land relations, liquor disputes, health care, and political leadership. Printed pages: 316. 030725

The present collection represents a selection of Honko’s key articles, which he considered worthy of republication himself. They relate to Honko’s own research, to the debates and discussions he took part in; some are introductions to article collections produced by groups of researchers.Honko’s writings combine a typically strong empiricism with clear theoretical thought. His own theoretical framework was above all one of functionalism, within which he united other currents within folkloristics, such as ‘composition in performance’, ‘ecology of tradition’ and ‘textualisation’. He was occupied by the question of how the individual performer used folklore, be he a teller of proverbs or jokes, a singer of oral poetry or a producer of written epic.Honko was at no stage a representative of the traditional ‘Finnish school’ of folklore research, and origins and developments were a research challenge to him particularly from the perspective of how folklore adapts in different ways to its setting and circumstances of performance by means of variation, and how regularity may be discerned within this.Pekka Hakamies is professor of folkloristics at the University of Turku, and has investigated Lauri Honko’s development of folkloristics theory. Anneli Honko, Lauri Honko’s spouse, was his assistant and research companion, particularly in his research into epic traditions. Printed Pages: 338. 113811

Kirkko ja Perusoikeudet
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2003; 9518552053; New; 
Teos tarkastelee erilaisten perusoikeuksien ja perustavaa laatua olevien oikeuksien vaikutusta kirkkoon ja sen hallintoon. Kirkon juridisen olemuksen käsittäminen merkitsee kirkkoa koskevien yhteiskunnallisten ja ylikansallisten oikeudellisten normien tuntemisen lisäksi sen tiedostamista, että kirkon olemukseen kuuluu sen ylipositiivinen arvopohja, joka asettaa vaatimuksia myös kirkon positiiviselle oikeudelle. Oikeuden käsittämisen muuttuminen yhteiskunnassa vaikuttaa myös kirkon oikeuteen. Printed Pages: 369. 114625

Taking The Leap: Freeing Ourselves from Old Habits and Fears
Shambhala Publication/TBI; New Delhi, India; 1590308433; Softcover; New; 
Best-seller Pema Chödrön draws on the Buddhist concept of shenpa to help us see how certain habits of mind tend to “hook” us and get us stuck in states of anger, blame, self-hatred, and addiction. The good news is that once we start to recognize these patterns, they instantly begin to lose their hold on us and we can begin to change our lives for the better.“This path entails uncovering three basic human qualities,” explains Pema. “They are natural intelligence, natural warmth, and natural openness. Everyone, everywhere, all over the globe, has these qualities and can call on them to help themselves and others.”This book gives us the insights and practices we can immediately put to use in our lives to awaken these essential qualities. In her friendly and encouraging style, Pema Chödrön helps us take a bold leap toward a new way of living—one that will bring about positive transformation for ourselves and for our troubled world.

The Compassion Book: Teachings for Awakening the Heart
Shambhala Publication/TBI; New Delhi, India; 2017; 1611804205; Softcover; New; 
Let compassion and fearlessness guide you and you’ll live wisely and effectively in good times and bad. But that’s easier said than done. Here Pema Chödrön introduces a powerful, transformative method to nurture these qualities using a practice called lojong, which has been a primary focus of her teachings and personal practice for many years. And for centuries, Tibetan Buddhists have relied on these teachings to awaken the deep goodness that lies within us.The lojong teachings include fifty-nine pithy slogans for daily contemplation, such as “Always maintain only a joyful mind,” “Don’t be swayed by external circumstances,” “Don’t try to be the fastest,” and “Be grateful to everyone.” This book presents each of these slogans and includes Pema’s clear, succinct guidance on how to understand them—and how they can enrich our lives. It also features a forty-five minute downloadable audio program entitled “Opening the Heart,” in which Pema offers in-depth instruction on tonglen meditation, a powerful practice that anyone can undertake to awaken compassion for oneself and others.
