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

23213 Pekka Hakamies & Anneli Honko (Eds)
Theoretical Milestones: Selected writings of Lauri Honko (Folklore Fellows Communications 304)
Suomalainen Tiedeakatemia (Academia Scientiarum Fennica)/Bookstore Tiedekirja; Helsinki, Finland; 2013; 9514110900; New; 
Lauri Honko (1932–2002) was among the leading folklorists of his time. In particular, he developed theories and concepts relating to folk belief, genre and epic. 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

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

With his photo essay, he projects an intriguing new light on Mumbai and its inhabitants.

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.

Stupa and Its Technology: A Tibeto Buddhist Perspective
Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts/MLBD; New Delhi, India; 2001; 8120813014; Hardcover; New; New; 
Among all the religious monuments of the world, the stupa has the longest uninterrupted historical development. Though modelled after the Indian prototype, the stupa architecture was developed in all the countries where Buddhism had flourished. Over time, the structural shape of the stupa underwent significant modifications in India and in other Asian Buddhist countries.The present study shows how Tibet became a treasure house of Buddhist culture highlighting important texts dealing with stupa architecture. Various ritual activities associated with the construction of the stupa are described along with the eight fundamental types of Tibeto-Buddhist stupas and their main structural components. The value of the book is enhanced by appending the transliteration and English translation of four important Tibetan texts.Printed Pages: 223. 101636

Style and Sociolinguistic Variation
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2002; 0521597897; First Edition; Paperback; New; 228 x 152 Mm 
This study of sociolinguistic variation examines the relation between social identity and ways of speaking. Studying variations in language not only reveals a great deal about speakers’ strategies with respect to variables such as social class, gender, ethnicity and age, it also affords us the opportunity to observe linguistic change in progress. The volume brings together leading experts from a range of disciplines to create a broad perspective on the study of style and variation. Beginning with an introduction to theoretical issues, the book goes on to discuss key approaches to stylistic variation in spoken language, including such issues as attention paid to speech, audience design, identity construction, the corpus study of register, genre, distinctiveness and the anthropological study of style. Rigorous and engaging, this book will become the standard work on stylistic variation. It will be welcomed by students and academics in sociolinguistics, English language, dialectology, anthropology and sociology. • Extensive discussion of the major approaches to stylistic variation in spoken language • Brings together anthropological and sociolinguistic approaches to style • Contributions by leading experts from a range of disciplines Contents Introduction John R.

23230 Penelope Eckert and Sally McConnell-Ginet
Language and Gender
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2003; 0521654262; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Language and Gender is a new introduction to the study of the relation between gender and language use, written by two of the leading experts in the field. It covers the main topics, beginning with a clear discussion of gender and of the resources that the linguistic system offers for the construction of social meaning. The body of the book offers an unprecedentedly broad and deep coverage of the interaction between language and social life, ranging from nuances of pronunciation to conversational dynamics to the deployment of metaphor. The discussion is organized around the contributions language makes to situated social practice rather than around linguistic structures or gender analyses. At the same time, it introduces linguistic concepts in a way that is suitable for non-linguists. It is set to become the standard textbook for courses on language and gender. Contents 1. Constructing, deconstructing and reconstructing gender; 2. Linking the linguistic to the social; 3. Organizing talk; 4. Making social moves; 5. Positioning ideas and subjects; 6. Saying and implying; 7. Mapping the world; 8. Working the market: use of varieties; 9. Fashioning selves. Printed Pages: 378 with 11 line diagrams and 4 tables. 014758

The Penguin Companion to the Mahabharata
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0143102087; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
One of the founding epics of Indian culture, the Mahabharata is transfused with ancient Indian wisdom. It is the foremost reference for classical Indian civilization and has great influence on Indian and South-East Asian religion, art, literature and popular culture. At its core, it tells the story of an apocalyptic eighteen-day war for territorial power which pitted brothers against brothers and sons against fathers, ended one age and began another. The epic’s spiritual message unfolds through the many digressions and subplots of the story which presents sweeping visions of the universe and captivating glimpses of divinity. The Mahabharata also introduces one of Hinduism’s most well-loved gods, Krishna, whose religio-philosophic discourse on the four human goals?kama, artha, dharma and moksha?is contained in the most important Hindu text, the Gita. This companion chronologically recounts the events of the Mahabharata, also providing the reader with —An episode-by-episode outline of the Mahabharata —Interesting, little-known facts about the epic —An account of a journal on how the Pandavas spent their twelve years in exile —A compilation of mythological concepts with detailed explanations —New insights into the spectrum of characters —Mythical place-names and their present names and locations —User-friendly information valuable for students, scholars and the general reader alike Printed Pages: 144. 030978

Teos tarjoaa ensimmäisen kerran eritellyn kuvan Johannes Gezelius nuoremman opintomatkasta Englantiin ja Saksaan (1670–74) ja siitä, millaisia virikkeitä tulevalla piispalla oli tuomisinaan. Alkavaan historialliseen raamatuntutkimukseen Gezelius tutustui varsinkin Pariisissa ja Strassburgissa. Historian tutkimuksen alkavaan kritiikkiin hän sai tuntumaa pariisilaiselta Jean de Launoylta, kotimaassa taas opettajaltaan Johannes Schefferukselta. Laasonen osoittaa tutkimuksessaan, millä tavalla Gezelius käytti tai ei käyttänyt näitä virikkeitä työssään, erityisesti suuressa raamatunselitysteoksessaan. Printed Pages: 292. 114576

The Edge of Another World
Speaking Tiger Publishing Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789385288371; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
The Edge of Another World is the story of three women living in different times and spaces, whose lives enmesh and interconnect in strange and unforeseen ways.Shaken by her mother’s death, Sophie, a contemporary English woman, accepts the offer of a holiday in Portugal’s Alentejo region, at a hotel that was once a convent. Satishan Nambiar, a historian from Malabar in Kerala, tells her about the frescoes in the convent’s church and the great megalithic standing stones where Sophie finds the small figure of a Madonna-like Indian goddess. Before they part, Satishan invites her to Malabar… Born to an unknown mother during the throes of an earthquake in sixteenth-century Portugal, Inês yearns to know her origins. Although taken into a noble family’s household, her life changes when Leonor, the family’s younger daughter, enters a convent, taking Inês as her servant. When Lucas van Domburg, the painter commissioned to create the frescoes in the church, sees Inês, he declares her to be ‘his’ Virgin, and insists on using her likeness in the murals. A tragic turn of events leaves Inês alone in Malabar but it is here that she finally discovers her true identity. In Malabar, Thattakkutty, a Namboodiri Brahmin girl, lives an enclosed and orthodox life in an illam ‘a long time ago’. Irked by her intelligence, her guru schemes to destroy her. Simultaneously, rumours begin that her elder sister, Arya-edathi, has an illicit relationship with a Nambiar man. The distraught Arya-edathi dies by her own hand, and as Thattakutty runs to her, she sees that the great doors of the illam are open. She flees out, supported by her Goddess—uniting with her, rushing to meet her own fate.Printed Pages: 404. 103370

Heaven on Earth: The Universe of Kerala’s Guruvayur Temple
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 9789381523278; Hardcover; New; New; 
Every day of the year, thousands of pilgrims swarm into the sacred precincts of Kerela’s Guruvayur Temple. They come to seek the blessings of Lord Krishna, known locally as Guruvayurappan, a deity whose precious idol was, according to myth, originally worshipped by Lord Vishnu. Another belief states that the idol was eventually inherited by Lord Krishna and enshrined in Dwaraka and that, just before His death, He declared that it was to be re-installed in India’s most sacred place. The task was carried out by Brihaspathy, the Guru of the Gods, and Vayu, the Wind God, whose combined names gave the temple its name. After travelling all over India, they eventually arrived at the place where the present temple now stands, and were welcomed by Siva and told that the purpose of their journey was fulfilled.From these mythical beginnings, Guruvayur became one of India’s most important temples, the small shrine that the Lord once occupied, now a mahakshetram, a great temple. It is a temple whose elaborate poojas have survived the many vicissitudes of history, of wars and changing times, always adhering to the rules that Adi Sankaracharya is said to have laid down a thousand years ago. That the temple has not only preserved this remarkable link with its divine origins, but has also continued to respect and honour its unique customs is largely due to the presence of the hereditary families, priestly and otherwise, who continue to fulfil the duties assigned to their ancestors many centuries ago. It is also a temple where devotion to Guruvayurappan has remained undiminished by the passing centuries, where the thousands of devotees who seek His compassionate blessings still uphold the mystery of His divine presence.Heaven on Earth: The Universe of Kerala’s Guruvayur Temple takes the reader into the heart of this complex universe, chronicling the temple’s myth and history, describing its rituals and beliefs, its traditional style of management, its festivals and patronage of Kerala’s ancient art forms, its elephants and, of course, the beliefs of all those who worship within its precincts. It is a book made possible both by the trust and willingness of people, including the temple priests, to share their knowledge, and by author-photographer Pepita Seth’s commitment to the project and her determination to represent the scope of the temple’s world.This remarkable and unique record is the outcome of 7 years of careful research enhanced by sensitive photographs that not only portray all aspects of life within the temple, but its atmosphere of intangible divinity.Printed Pages: 300 with 205 colour photographs & 8 colour illustrations. 106595

Twilight of the Mughuls: Studies in Mughul Delhi
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1991; 81-215-0517-6; Reprint; Hard Cover; New; New; 14.5 Cms x 22.5 Cms 
The events of the period between 1761 after the battle of Panipat and the anti-British uprising 1857 that led to the establishment of British sovereignty in India, were marked by power politics and intrigues. This period of the 'Twilight of the Moghuls' saw the corrosion of power of the descendants of the house of Timur, ultimately confirming their nominal authority to the areas in and around Delhi. Set against this background, Percival Spear has admirably described in all its grim detail the story of the Late Mughul Delhi which was intimately bound up with this drama. Starting his studies, with a sketch of the 'Kingdom of Delhi' between 1761 and 1803 when the kingdom went under the control of the Marathas until the British conquest, Percival Spear has tried to analyse the factors leading to the British domination. The second part of the book deals with the period between 1803 and 1857 and consists of three sections: the Mughuls and the British, the international life of the Mughul family, and the British administration of the Delhi territory. While the first two sections seek to show the intimate details of life of the period, the third describes Sir Charles Metcalfe's 'Delhi System' which was the foundation of his reputation and shows 'how that system had the defects of its virtues and how the desire for improvement led to harmful interference.' The study is completed by the picture of Delhi during and immediately after 1857. The accounts given by Dr. Spear in these chapters are 'brief and accurate' and he approaches the story from a refreshingly new angle. In this rare penetration to the analysis of the character of Bahadur Shah, the last Mughul emperor, about whom he has written with sympathy and kindness, he is never swayed by over-enthusiasm in either defending him or the others connected with the fateful events of 1857. For this brilliantly documented account, Percival Spear has drawn from all the available sources. Thus, while for the first section of the book he has largely tried to analyze and coordinate the primary and secondary material, he has made use of the official records, parliamentary papers, diaries and memoirs and private papers for the second and the third section of the book dealing with Mughuls and the British, the British life in Delhi, the Colebrooke case, the Fraser murder and the 1857 uprising. Some of the materials have been used for the first time in this book. The reader will find in it much information and an interpretation at once sensitive and personal, giving life to a period too often buried under a mass of detail.

A History of Delhi Under the Later Mughuls
Low Price Publications/D.K. Publishers Distributors Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8175363053; Hardcover; New; New; 
Two hundred years ago, Delhi has been a great and imperial city for a century, with anything between one and two million inhabitants. It was the largest and most renowned city, not only of India, but of all the East from Constantinople to Canton. The purpose of this study is to trace the history of Delhi from the time that it ceased to be the capital of Mughul India until it became a completely British city after the Mutiny in 1858.The stoy of Delhi during these years is not one of weaklings or mountebanks, creeping amidst deceit and subterfuge, but of strong men lusting for power. It is a story of men throwing away successively in the heat of that passion everything that could make that power worth having, and mutually sqauandering the resources for which they were all contending. The nemesis of these men was the nemesis not of weakness but of strength unallied to principle, not of idealism but of power politics.The first part of the book is a sketch of the Kingdom of Delhi until its conquest by the company in 1803. The second part of the book consists of a series if studies on the Delhi city and territory under British Administration from 1803-1857. This part fall into three sections.

A History of Ancient Coinage 700-30 BC
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1975; 8170690633; First Indian Edition; Cloth; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
Percy Gardner's A History of Ancient Coinage is an outstanding work on ancient numismatics covering the period between 700 BC and 300 BC. It gives in detail the development of ancient coinage and is based mainly on the Greek coinage during this important period of ancient history. In the present work, Gardner has divided the period of early coinage into two parts, the first covering period upto 480 BC and the second between 480 and 300 BC. His approach to the subject is different from the early writers in as much as he has discussed the coinage of the cities in groups rather than separately and has traced the lines of trade influence from district to district thereby discerning the reasons why particular coin standards found acceptance in one locality or another. He has supplemented the material by including the history of Greek and Asiatic and Italian coinages as a continuous activity. The work is divided into three parts. In the Introduction, Gardner has discussed Greek trade-routes, classes of trades, bankers, early mutual relations of precious metals, rights of coinage, monetary alliances, mother-city and colony, standard currencies, monometallism and bimetallism, dating of Greek coins, hoards and fabric. In the next two parts is discussed the coinage of early Greek cities including those areas which became a part of the Hellenistic empire, besides a chapter on the coins of Phillip and Alexander. In the eleven plates are illustrated the important coin types with detailed explanation of each in the index to plates. A detailed General Index is also appended at the end of the volume for easy reference. Printed Pages: 479 with 11 coin plates. 028835

Aatteesta Ammatiksi: Puoluetyötä ja Punapääomaa
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2016; 9525976408; New; 
Työväenliike syntyi maaseutuvaltaiseen Suomeen 1800-luvun lopulla muualta opituin opein ja esimerkein. Liike organisoitui paitsi aatteellisena ja ammatillisena liikkeenä, myös taloudellisen toiminnan eri alueilla. Liikkeen voimakas kasvu vaikutti paitsi yksilötason yhteiskunnallisiin mahdollisuuksiin, myös loi pohjaa kielteisiin ja liikkeen yhtenäisyyttä rapauttaviin ilmiöihin. Teos kuvaa työväenliikkeen ja liikkeeseen sitoutuneiden nousua ja kriisejä kahden keskeisen vaikuttajan vaiheiden kautta 1900-luvun alkuvuosikymmeninä. Aviopari Julius Nurminen ja Anna Haverinen (ent. Nurminen) toimivat työnväenliikkeessä ja olivat kumpikin useamman kauden kansanedustajina. Printed Pages: 461. 114446

Kotona, kylässä, liikkeellä –teoksessa tutustutaan pohjoiskarjalaisiin Sivakan ja Rasimäen kyliin. Tutkimuksen keskeinen näkökulma on liikkuvuuden vaikutukset ihmisten elämään ja maaseudun kehitykseen. Sivakka ja Rasinmäki jäsentyvät muutoksessa olevina paikkoina, joissa ihmiset elävät ja pistäytyvät. Toisaalta kylät ovat kaivattuja ja muisteltuja kotipaikkoja. Tässä kirjassa äänen saavat yksittäisten ihmisten elämäntarinat, kylistä lähteneiden muistelut ja karjalaisuus.Pitkään jatkuneen tutkimuksen aikana suomalainen yhteiskunta, maaseutu ja tutkimusotteet ovat kokeneet suuria muutoksia. Siksi kirja on hyödyllistä luettavaa yhteiskunta- ja kulttuurintutkimuksesta kiinnostuneille. Se antaa uusia ajatuksia myös kotiseutuharrastajille, kyläaktiiveille ja maaseudun kehittäjille. Teoksen kirjoittajakunta koostuu ansioituneista humanististen ja yhteiskuntatieteiden alan tutkijoista, joista monet ovat olleet mukana Sivakka-Rasimäki -tutkimuksessa jo useampia vuosikymmeniä.

"Saroja and Kumaresan are in love. After a hasty wedding, they arrive in Kumaresan?s village, harbouring the dangerous secret that their marriage is an inter-caste one, likely to anger the villagers should they learn of it. Kumaresan is confident that all will be well. He naively believes that after the initial round of curious questions, the inquiries will die down and the couple will be left alone. But nothing is further from the truth. The villagers strongly suspect that Saroja must belong to a different caste. It is only a matter of time before their suspicions harden into certainty and, outraged, they set about exacting their revenge.With spare, powerful prose, Murugan masterfully conjures a terrifying vision of intolerance in this devastating tale of innocent young love pitted against chilling savagery.

23282 Peter Burke
Language and Communities in Early Modern Europe
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2004; 0521535867; First Edition; Paperback; New; 228 x 152 Mm 
In this magisterial new study, Peter Burke explores the social and cultural history of the languages spoken or written in Europe between the invention of printing and the French Revolution, arguing that, from a linguistic point of view, 1450 to 1789 should be regarded as a distinct period. One major theme of the book is the relation between languages and communities (regions, churches, occupations and genders as well as nations) and the place of language as a way of identifying others as well as a symbol of one’s own identity. A second, linked theme is that of competition: between Latin and the vernaculars, between different vernaculars, dominant and subordinate, and finally between different varieties of the same vernacular, such as standard languages and dialects. Written by one of Europe’s leading cultural historians, this book restores the history of the many languages of Europe in a large variety of contexts. • Places the history of the many languages of Europe in their cultural, social and political contexts • Examines the relationship between languages and communities • Written by a renowned historian of international repute Contents Prologue: communities and domains; 1. ‘Speak, that I may see thee’: the discovery of language in early modern Europe; 2. Latin: a language in search of a community; 3. Vernaculars in competition; 4. Standardizing languages; 5. Mixing languages; 6. Purifying languages; Epilogue: languages and nations; Appendix.

Architecture 1900: Papers presented at the international conference, The University of York 1997
Donhead Publishing Ltd; Dorset, UK; 1998; 1873394322; First Edition; Hard Cover; Brand New; 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
The period around 1900 was a defining point in the history of architecture and it offers a fascinating insight into the whole development of the modern architectural movement. The intellectual debate was intense with a desire to produce innovative architecture which honoured the past and local traditions whilst using a combination of traditional and new materials. This international collection of papers examines the buildings and architects of this period and presents many fine examples of both domestic and public architecture, reflecting the diversity of ideas and influences of the time. The dialogue between tradition and modernity finds expression in the creative design and craftsmanship of the Arts and Crafts Movement and also reveals a desire to experiment with newer materials such as steel and reinforced concrete which then became more widely used after the First World War Contents: An introductory perspective Alan Powers STYLE AND TECHNIQUE Innovation and conservatism: steel and reinforced concrete in British architecture 1860–1905 Michael Stratton Precedent versus principle: the search for regional expression in New Zealand domestic architecture, 1890–1916 Ian Lochhead The search for order: Scottish architecture 1880–1914 Miles Glendinning The Glasgow School of Art: the leading edge of technology George M.

They are the key to creating thriving teams of engaged people. At a personal level projects that matter are the key to fulfillment and success. Implementation, however, challenges us at every level.

It offers forward-looking advice, with practical guidelines for protecting yourself and your company from various forms of fraud that were found to have played a role in the current economic and financial crisis.Printed Pages: 272. 104647
