Fraud in The Markets: Why It Happens and How to Fight It
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 8126526769; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
Fraud in the Markets reveals the critical role fraud played in the global financial crisis-even as many of the perpetrators continue to go unpunished. Shedding light on the reckless conduct of the former senior executives at major Wall Street firms such as Lehman Brothers, Bear Stearns, Merrill Lynch and others just before their collapse, this timely book shows how the culture of "anything goes" on Wall Street fueled the innovation of exotic but deadly asset-backed securities. 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

23303 Peter D. Schiff & John Downes
Crash Proof 2.0: How to Profit from the Economic Collapse
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8126526203; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
United States is no longer an illusion--it is here today. And nobody understands what to do in this situation better than the man who saw it coming : seasoned Wall Street prognosticator Peter Schiff. For more than a decade, Schiff has been observing the US economy and believes that the nation faces an economic storm because of increasing federal, personal and corporate debt. There is not enough savings, a declining dollar, lack of domestic manufacturing--all of which means that the overall standard of living in the United States could decline even further over the next few years. Among Schiff's new dire predictions-- a prolonged depression combined with hyperinflation. The bond market bubble will burst, interest rates will spiral, and the dollar will collapse. However, Schiff does have a survival plan that includes investing in commodities, overseas stocks and more liquid investments.Printed Pages: 384. 104595

Madhyamaka Schools in India: A Study of the Madhyamaka Philosophy and of the Division of the System into the Prasangika and Svatantrika Schools
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8120801539; Hardcover; New; New; 
This Volume traces the development of one of the most divisive debates in Buddhist philosophy in which leading parts were taken by Nagarjuna, Bhavaviveka and Candrakirti. The interesting debate between the Prasangikas and Svatantrikas has thus far received comparatively little attention. It has been largely assumed that the division between the two schools occurred as a result of the disagreements on the essentials of the Madhyamaka philosophical view. In the present work the author argues that the school split not over philosophy but over forensic methodology or, in other words, over the way in which the philosophy of emptiness was to be communicated to and vindicated for others. He draws substantially on the Tibetan sources to prove his viewpoint. He also makes use of Nagarjuna's Mulamadhya makakarika and Candrakirti's Prasannapadanamadhyamakavrtti. The volume extends not only the current understanding of the Madhyamaka system, but also offers a new and eminently reasonable interpretation of the nature of the divisions between the Prasangikas and Svatantrikas.Printed Pages: 255. 102382

Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, 5 Vols.
Routledge; London, UK; 2007; 0415310989; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Asia Pacific Economic Co-operation (APEC) forum was established as a regional grouping in 1989 to deal with the issues arising from growing regional interdependence. Its stated aim is to build ‘a prosperous Asia-Pacific through free and open trade and investment’ and it now has twenty-one member economies, including China, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, Chinese Taipei, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Russia, Canada, the USA, Mexico, Peru and Chile. The APEC Summit of Leaders and Ministers from around the region is the major dialogue on economic and political affairs across the Pacific each year. But APEC continues to evolve in a bid to keep pace with the rise of East Asian economic and political power, first around the emergence of Japan as a great industrial nation, later with the rise of the other East Asian economies, the remarkable growth of China and, more recently, the emergence of India. This new Major Work from Routledge is a five-volume collection which covers in depth the origins and history of APEC, its achievements and the impact it has had—and continues to have—on international relations and economic cooperation in general. It provides the information, analysis and interpretation that are essential to thinking about the economic and political framework within which these unprecedented changes in the structure of the world economy might be managed more or less successfully. Volume I: APEC: Its Origins; Volume II: APEC: Economic and Political Rationale; Volume III: APEC: Foundations and Evolution; Volume IV: APEC and East Asian Arrangements; Volume V: APEC: Its Record and Achievements.

23314 Peter Fernando
Finding Freedom in Illness: A Guide to Cultivating Deep Well-Being through Mindfulness and Self-Compassion
Shambhala Publication/TBI; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8121503205; Softcover; New; 
"Let your illness be your spiritual teacher!" Make a statement like that to someone who's struggled for years with, say, rheumatoid arthritis, and be prepared for an eye roll (at best). To Peter Fernando's credit, he makes that statement, and no such impulse arises. We believe him because he's been there himself and because he backs up the statements with his own real experiences and with real wisdom from the Buddhist teachings. Fernando starts by defusing the pernicious belief that anyone is somehow responsible for their illness: you're not "wrong" for being sick. Then, having gotten past self-blame, one can begin to learn self-kindness. From there, one moves to mindfulness practices and cultivating body awareness—even if body awareness is distasteful when the body isn't behaving the way you like. Further topics include getting intimate with dark emotions (fear, despair, the scary future, frustration, grief, etc.), learning equanimity (rejoicing in the good fortune of those who don't share your suffering), cultivating healthy relationships in the midst of everything, and practical advice for living with pain. Each chapter comes with one or more practices or guided meditations for putting the teachings into practice. Printed Pages: 240. 112033

Customer Genius
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 2009; 812652345X; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
Customer Genius offers you a more intelligent and imaginative approach to customers. It starts from how customers see the world, what they seek to achieve and the context in which they see your business as part of that activity or ambition. It reaches deeper into the customer psyche, reaching beyond superficial research averages, beyond articulating needs and wants based on convention, to what motivates and inspires them. And as a result, learns to work on their terms -- inverting the way we do business, pull rather than push, understanding where, when and how they want to do work with us. It recognizes that customers expect companies to do more for people -- to go beyond the product, the transaction, to add more value to their lives, helping them to achieve what they couldn't otherwise. They will return this commitment -- through trust and loyalty - not through incentives and rewards, but through becoming an essential and enabling part of their lives. Customer Genius gives you the knowledge, capabilities and inspiration to address your relevant customer challenges in practical and profitable ways.Printed Pages: 406. 104599

Retail Selling: How to Achieve Maximum Retail Sales
Jaico Publishing House; Delhi, India; 8179923827; Softcover; New; 
Retail Selling is a new, practical guide for all retail sales people. It shows you how to improve your sales and increase customer satisfaction. There are many books in print about aspects of selling technique - but not many of them have been specifically targeted towards retailers and their staff. So, why should you read this book? Sadly, many people learn their selling skills the hard way - by trial and error! The trouble with this is that it can be an expensive way to learn - lost sales, complaints, cancelled orders, even a polite suggestion from your manager that "perhaps you are not really suited to this job in selling" might result from this learning method.Printed Pages: 190. 105578

Contesting the Corporation: Struggle, Power, and Resistance in Organizations
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0521860865; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 155 x 235 Mm 
In an age when large corporations dominate the economic and political landscape, it is tempting to think that their power goes largely unchecked. Contesting the Corporation counters this view by showing that today's corporations are driven by political struggle, power plays and attempts to resist control. Building on a wide range of theoretical sources, Fleming and Spicer present an analysis of the different ways in which power operates within the modern workplace. They begin by building a theoretical perspective that synthesizes previous investigations of power and resistance, identifying struggle as a key concept. Each subsequent chapter illustrates a different dimension of workplace struggle through an array of original empirical studies relating to sexuality, cynicism, new social movements and new-wave trade unionism. The book concludes by demonstrating that social justice claims underlie even the most innocuous forms of resistance, helping to transform some of the largest modern corporations. • Applies up-to-date social theory to explain power and resistance in organizations • Contains many original case studies • Accessible style aids comprehension of key issues Contents Acknowledgements; Introduction: prisons, playgrounds and parliaments; 1. Faces of power in organizations; 2. Faces of resistance at work; 3. Struggle in organizations; 4. Dis-identification and resentment: the case of cynicism; 5.

23328 Peter Gottschalk
Religion, Science and Empire: Classifying Hinduism and Islam in British India
Oxford University Press; 0195393015; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
Peter Gottschalk offers a compelling study of how, through the British implementation of scientific taxonomy in the subcontinent, Britons and Indians identified an inherent divide between mutually antagonistic religious communities. England's ascent to power coincided with the rise of empirical science as an authoritative way of knowing not only the natural world, but the human one as well. The British scientific passion for classification, combined with the Christian impulse to differentiate people according to religion, led to a designation of Indians as either Hindu or Muslim according to rigidly defined criteria that paralleled classification in botanical and zoological taxonomies. Through an historical and ethnographic study of the north Indian village of Chainpur, Gottschalk shows that the Britons' presumed categories did not necessarily reflect the Indians' concepts of their own identities, though many Indians came to embrace this scientism and gradually accepted the categories the British instituted through projects like the Census of India, the Archaeological Survey of India, and the India Museum. Today's propogators of Hindu-Muslim violence often cite scientistic formulations of difference that descend directly from the categories introduced by imperial Britain. Religion, Science, and Empire will be a valuable resource to anyone interested in the colonial and postcolonial history of religion in India. Salient Features Provides a new, grassroots examination of the British and Indian construction of Hindu-Muslim difference Demonstrates how disciplines including anthropology, archaeology, and demographics have portrayed Indians as an inherently religious people Shows how these how these disciplines and their religious categorization of Indians relied upon both Christian and scientific forms of classification Table of Contents Acknowledgements List of Illustrations Glossaries Note on Transliteration Foreword by Peter Lake Introduction Chapter One: Religion, Science, and Scientism Chapter Two: Cartography, the Ideal of Science, and the Place of Religion First Interlude: The Dynamics of Comparison and Classification Chapter Three: Christocentric Travel Writing: Dynamics of Comparison and Classification Second Interlude: The Five Modes of Comparison Chapter Four: Humanist Travel Writing: Ascent of Empiricism and the On the Spot Third Interlude: Classification in the Natural Sciences Chapter Five: Categories to Count On: Religion and Caste in the Census Chapter Six: A Raja, a Ghost, and a Tribe: Studies in Ethnology, Folklore, and Religion Chapter Seven: Popularizing Chainpur's Past: Archaeology in Place and in Museums Chapter Eight: Chainpur Today Conclusion Appendices Notes Index Printed Pages: 416. 037684

23334 Peter Harvey
An Introduction to Buddhism: Teachings, History and Practices
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8121504937; First Indian Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
This book aims to be a comprehensive introduction to the Buddhist tradition as it has developed in three major cultural areas in Asia, and to Buddhism as it is now developing in the West. It is intended to be a textbook for students of Religious or Asian Studies, but will also be of interest to those who want a general survey of Buddhism and its beliefs. Unlike many other general books about Buddhism, it not only explores the world-views of the religion but also seeks to show how Buddhism functions as a set of practices. It thus includes chapters on devotion, ethics, monastic practice (of nuns as well as monks) and meditation, and relates each of these to Buddhist teachings and historical developments. While describing thought and practice, the book sets out at the same time to convey something of the emotional tone of 'flavour' of Buddhism; and emphasising as it does the diversity found throughout to highlight the common threads of belief, practice and historical continuities which unify the Buddhist world. Dr. Harvey has sought to answer questions that are often asked by people on first meeting the tradition, and has tried, where appropriate, to relate Buddhism to modern ways of thinking, while taking account of the most recent scholarship in the field. In his section on Nirvana the author offers a novel interpretation of this ultimate, transcendent mystery. Printed Pages: 396 with 2 maps, 3 figures and 13 b/w illustrations. 022734

Sri Aurobindo: Nationalism, Religion, and Beyond - Writings on Politics, Society, and Culture
Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2005; 8178241390; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
Sri Aurobindo is best known today as a spiritual philosopher and yogi, and as one of the principal leaders in the early phase of the Indian nationalist movement. But he also wrote extensively on political, social and cultural theory. His contributions to these fields, although original and often ahead of their time, have not received the attention they deserve. One reason for this is that they are scattered through six or seven volumes of his complete works. Another is their apparent datedness. But the most important of Aurobindo's writings on these subjects are as interesting now as when they were written, for they deal with matters of perennial concern—such as on the assumption and exceeding of cultural identity, and on the proper place of spirituality in society. Peter Heehs—well known historian and biographer of Aurobindo—overcomes the first problem (of scattered sources) by selecting representative passages from the entire body of Aurobindo's works. He deals with the second problem (of Aurobindo’s seeming datedness) by providing historical background, and by relating Aurobindo's social, cultural, and political ideas to those of contemporary theorists. Heehs’s anthology confronts common misunderstandings by those scholars and politicians who have reduced Aurobindo's complex thinking to a collection of clichés. Additionally, given the manner in which the leading intellectual figures of Hinduism have been appropriated by Hindu nationalists and Hindu fundamentalists in recent times, this anthology is a vital corrective. It provides a far truer, more nuanced, and properly contextualized understanding of the social, political, and religious ideas of one of India’s most influential thinkers. Printed Pages: 340. 031588

Marx`s Concept of the Alternative to Capitalism
Aakar Books; New Delhi, India; 9789350024447; Softcover; New; 
In contrast to the traditional view that Marx's work is restricted to a critique of capitalism and does not contain a detailed or coherent conception of its alternative, this book shows, through an analysis of his published and unpublished writings, that Marx was committed to a specific concept of a post-capitalist society that informed his critique of value-production, alternated labour and capitalist accumulation. Instead of focusing on the present with only a passing reference to the future, Marx's emphasis on capitalism's tendency towards dissolution is rooted in a specific conception of what should replcae it. In critically re-examining that conception, this book addresses the quest for an alternative to capitalism that has taken on increased importance today. Printed Pages: 249. 111716

How to do Everything and be Happy
HarperCollins Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2013; 0007520549; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
How to do Everything and be Happy (Paperback) Price: Rs.250 Your step-by-step, straight-talking guide to creating happiness in your life Do you ever feel that you could be well just that little bit happier? This simple book reveals how you can be happy every day, through these surprisingly easy tips Dand advice. Whoever you are, whatever you do, and whatever is holding you back, you can do it AND be happy. How To Do Everything and Be Happy is a book for ordinary people, with ordinary lives. People who have been ambling along and wondering if things would be better if they were just a little different. It's a book for most people. It's a book for you. Peter Jones was once a normal guy. Sometimes frustrated, often dissatisfied, but always working hard towards a 'happily every after' he would share with his wife Kate. But when Kate died in Peter's arms after just 2 years and 3 months of marriage, he realised his days had been spent working towards a fantasy, instead of making every hour count. Alone, at rock bottom, Peter discovered that the secret to happiness is simple: it's about filling your time with the things that make you happy. If you've got a brain in your head, if you can pick up a pen, if you've got half an idea about what makes you smile, this book will show you how to do that.Peter's ideas are born from hard-won experience. Like Boxing Day: originally a day Peter and Kate spent together, without plans or restrictions, as an antidote to the chaos of Christmas. When Kate passed away, Peter continued the tradition by himself, doing whatever came to mind: it turned out to be the most refreshing, relaxing and fulfilling few hours he'd ever had. And its effects could be felt throughout the month. Practical, amusing and mumbo-jumbo-free, How To Do Everything And Be Happy does exactly what it says on the tin. Printed Pages: 228. 037440

Hala's Sattasai (Gatha Saptasati in Prakrit): Poems of Life and Love in Ancient India
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8120837010; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
An elegant translation of the Sattasai (or Seven Hundred), India's earliest collection of lyric poetry, this book deals with love in its many aspects. Mostly narrated by women, the poems reveal the world of local Indian village life sometime between the third and fifth centuries. The Sattasai offers a more realistic counterpart to that notorious theoretical treatise on love, the Kamasutra, which presents a cosmopolitan and calculating milieu. Translators Peter Khoroche and Herman Tieken introduce the main features of the work in its own language and time. For modern readers, these short, self-contained poems are a treat: the sentiments they depict remain affecting and contemporary while providing a window into a world long past.Printed Pages: 2019. 102026

This book analyzes the relative impact of class and status groups versus demographic composition and political structures on the growth of welfare spending. Special attention is given to the role of the aged as representative of the importance of ascription and middle-class groups in welfare growth. The authors conclude that the primary beneficiaries of welfare benefits are not the poor but middle income groups and that income inequality is reinforced by welfare spending.

Linguistic Issues in Encoding Sanskrit
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8120835395; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Questions surrounding the encoding of speech have been considered since scholars began to consider the history of different writing systems and of writing itself. In modern times, attention has been paid to such issues as standardizing systems for portraying in Roman script, the scripts used for recording other languages, and this has given rise to discussions about distinctions such as that between transliteration and transcription. In recent times, moreover, the advent and general use of digital technology has allowed us not only to replicate with relative ease details of various scripts and to produce machine searchable texts but also to reproduce images of manuscripts that can be viewed and manipulated. At the source of such endeavours lie the facts of language: phonological and phonetic matters that scripts portray with various degrees of fidelity. The main text is complemented by a series of appendixes, four of which directly concern encoding. The first of these contains thirteen tables, in which are treated not only Sanskrit phonetic and phonological features but also, interestingly, reconstructions of Proto-Indo-European phonology according to different scholars. The second, third and fourth appendixes concern encoding schemes developed within the context of the Sanskrit Library established as a website by Scharf: the Sanskrit Library Phonetic basic encoding scheme, the Sanskrit Library segmental encoding scheme, and the Sanskrit Library phonetic featural encoding scheme.Printed Pages: 290. 102560

Reformaatio
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2017; 952718911X; New; 
Suurin osa reformaatiota koskevista yleistyksistä ei pidä paikkaansa. Reformaatio ei ollut Martti Lutherin paluu puhtaaseen kristinuskoon eikä Antikristuksen juoni, eikä se kiskaissut modernia luonnontiedettä vapaaksi taikauskon noidankynsistä. Sn sijaan se voimisti yhtä aikaa sekä suvaitsemattomuutta että moniarvoisuutta. Maailman johtaviin reformaation tuntijoihin kuuluvan Peter Marshallin Reformaatio muistuttaa, miten moneen suuntaan reformaatio riistäytyi usein vastoin asianosaisten tahtoa. Se on rautaisannos kulttuuri- ja yhteiskuntahistoriaa. Printed Pages: 157. 114507

Individually and collectively, today’s female practitioners are changing the face of Buddhism today, as surely as Buddhist practice is transforming each one of their lives. In Women Practicing Buddhism, you'll meet a diverse sampling of contemporary Buddhist women, from those who are crucial to the community's organizational fabric to others who infuse their art and activism with the Dharma. Contributors include: Author and social activist bell hooks * Composer, singer, filmmaker, choreographer, and director Meredith Monk * American-born Tibetan Buddhist nun Karma Lekshe Tsomo * former Tricycle editor Helen Tworkov * Jane Hirshfield, prize-winning poet, translator, and essayist * Pat Enkyo O'Hara, abbot of NYC's Village Zendo * and many more. Women Practicing Buddhism is a kind of mosaic portrait of the Buddhist women's movement, revealing some of the many ways that the Dharma returns the embrace of those women who are coming to it and making it their own.

Integrated Water Resources Management: Global Theory, Emerging Practice and Local Needs
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2006; 0761935495; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) has become the international label for the ‘new approach’ to water resources management. This volume, and in fact the entire series, investigates how this global concept resonates with regional, national and local concerns in South Asia. This is the first volume in a new series under the aegis of the South Asia Consortium for Interdisciplinary Water Resources Studies (SaciWATERs) and explains the IWRM. This volume begins by tracking the emergence of IWRM as a central notion in water debates. It then discusses the European experience with IWRM in the context of the European Water Framework Directive—the most comprehensive attempt so far at an IWRM-based water governance and management system. Thereafter, the book turns to South Asia. Among other things, the contributors argue that: - in South Asia, IWRM is a concept in search of a constituency, and not a concept that has emerged from regional or local practice; - understanding and implementing IWRM requires interdisciplinary analysis and frameworks; - IWRM is a ‘boundary’ concept—plastic enough to adapt to local needs and the constraints of several parties employing it, yet robust enough to maintain a common identity across sites; - there are issues and limits in transplanting the model of river basin organizations, a central thrust within the global IWRM discourse; and — a focus on water alone may be misguided, and that IWRM should look intensely at land-water linkages.

Indian Youth in a Transforming World: Attitudes and Perceptions
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8132101715; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
This book comprises the first nationwide study based on face-to-face interviews with 5,000 youth to capture the popular mood of this important demographic segment of contemporary India. It records their perceptions of various issues, ranging from modernity, development, globalization and unemployment, to leisure and lifestyle, social networks and family, and their hopes and aspirations for the future. Indian Youth in a Transforming World: Attitudes and Perceptions underlines that Indian youth reflect an authentic multiplicity of aspirations, ‘world views’ and interest, quite like the rich tapestry of India’s diversity. It indicates that they are a mix of continuity and change. However, they stand distinct in many ways from the youth the world over. This book is also likely to break some myths related to the youth, opening avenues for new debates. For example, it reveals that there is hardly any decline in interest in politics between today’s youth and the previous generations. At the same times, it also helps strengthen some commonly held perceptions about the youth.. The book would be invaluable for professionals in advertising and other sectors of the media and all those involved in market research. Students and teachers of specialized psychology courses, behavioural sociology, political sociology, will also find it useful. Printed Pages: 208. 028608

From Science to God: The Mystery of Consciousness and the Meaning of Light
Yogi Impressions; Mumbai, India; 2003; 8188479039; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
What does the speed of light have to do with the Koran, St. John and Aldous Huxley? Where does quantum physics meet the psychology of meditation? And if "I think, therefore I am," why can’t physics, chemistry or biology explain where human thought comes from? 'From Science to God' offers a crash course in the nature of reality. It is the story of Peter Russell's lifelong exploration into the nature of consciousness - how he went from being a strict atheist, studying mathematics and physics at Cambridge University, to realizing a profound personal synthesis of the mystical and scientific. Using his own tale of curiosity and exploration as the book’s backbone, Russell blends physics, psychology, and philosophy to reach a new worldview in which consciousness is a fundamental quality of creation. He shows how all the ingredients for this worldview are in place; nothing new needs to be discovered. We have only to put the pieces together and explore the new picture of reality that emerges. 'From Science to God' is as much a personal story of an open-minded skeptic as it is a tour de force of scientific and religious paradigm shifts. Russell takes us from Galileo’s den to the lecture halls of Cambridge where he studied with Stephen Hawking. "If you had asked me then if there was a God," says the best-selling author of his scientific beginnings, "I would have pointed to mathematics." But no matter what empirical truths science offered Russell, one thorny question remained: How can something as immaterial as consciousness, ever arise from something as unconscious as matter? Integrating a deep knowledge of science with his own experiences of meditation, Russell arrives at a universe similar to that described by many mystics — one in which science and spirit no longer conflict. The bridge between them, he shows, is light. 'From Science to God' invites us to cross that bridge to a radically different, and ultimately healing, view of ourselves and the universe — one in which God takes on new meaning, and spiritual practice a deeper significance.

From Science to God: The Mystery of Consciousness and the Meaning of Light
Yogi Impressions; Mumbai, India; 2003; 8188479039; First Indian Edition; Paperback; New; 14.5 Cms x 22 Cms 
What does the speed of light have to do with the Koran, St. John and Aldous Huxley? Where does quantum physics meet the psychology of meditation? And if "I think, therefore I am," why can’t physics, chemistry or biology explain where human thought comes from? 'From Science to God' offers a crash course in the nature of reality. It is the story of Peter Russell's lifelong exploration into the nature of consciousness - how he went from being a strict atheist, studying mathematics and physics at Cambridge University, to realizing a profound personal synthesis of the mystical and scientific. Using his own tale of curiosity and exploration as the book’s backbone, Russell blends physics, psychology, and philosophy to reach a new worldview in which consciousness is a fundamental quality of creation. He shows how all the ingredients for this worldview are in place; nothing new needs to be discovered. We have only to put the pieces together and explore the new picture of reality that emerges. 'From Science to God' is as much a personal story of an open-minded skeptic as it is a tour de force of scientific and religious paradigm shifts. Russell takes us from Galileo’s den to the lecture halls of Cambridge where he studied with Stephen Hawking. "If you had asked me then if there was a God," says the best-selling author of his scientific beginnings, "I would have pointed to mathematics." But no matter what empirical truths science offered Russell, one thorny question remained: How can something as immaterial as consciousness, ever arise from something as unconscious as matter? Integrating a deep knowledge of science with his own experiences of meditation, Russell arrives at a universe similar to that described by many mystics — one in which science and spirit no longer conflict. The bridge between them, he shows, is light. 'From Science to God' invites us to cross that bridge to a radically different, and ultimately healing, view of ourselves and the universe — one in which God takes on new meaning, and spiritual practice a deeper significance. Over the past twenty years, Peter Russell has consulted with IBM, Apple, American Express, Nike, and other major corporations.

A Sustainable Fiscal Policy for India: An International Perspective
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2006; 019567488X; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
India s economy has grown rapidly since the beginning of the 1990s despite a large and growing fiscal deficit and rising public levels relative to output. This book explores whether India has found a way to reconcile sustained expansionary fiscal policies with relative macroeconomic stability. Drawing on the views of some of the most knowledgeable experts on macroeconomics and fiscal policy, with wide ranging experience in both other emerging market countries as well as in India, it seeks to understand the strengths and weaknesses of India s policies in managing its fiscal position. This volume argues why India does not face serious macroeconomic problems in spite of large fiscal imbalances but at the same time incurring hidden costs on the economy in terms of foregone potential for even higher economic growth. It warns that time is running out for India to address these fiscal imbalances in a way that does not result in enhanced vulnerability to macroeconomic crisis. Printed Pages: 432. 013741

The Modern Spirit of Asia: The Spiritual and the Secular in China and India
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8125054243; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Modern Spirit of Asia challenges the notion that modernity in China and India are derivative imitations of the West, arguing that these societies have transformed their ancient traditions in unique and distinctive ways. Peter van der Veer begins with nineteenth-century imperial history, exploring how Western concepts of spirituality, secularity, religion, and magic were used to translate the traditions of India and China. He traces how modern Western notions of religion and magic were incorporated into the respective nation-building projects of Chinese and Indian nationalist intellectuals, yet how modernity in China and India is by no means uniform. While religion is a centerpiece of Indian nationalism, it is viewed in China as an obstacle to progress that must be marginalized and controlled.Printed Pages: 296. 101997

Heavenly Himalayas: The Murals of Mangyu and Other Discoveries in Ladakh
Prestel; Munich, Germany; 2011; 3791345435; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 24 x 30 Cm 
This volume presents for the first time in book form important and largely unknown treasures of Indo-Kashmiri Buddhism. From the first century BCE to the thirteenth century, Kashmir was a thriving center of Buddhist culture and art. The rise of Islamic peoples led to the destruction of all temples constructed there during the Buddhist era. Yet in the remote Himalayas of Ladakh and other neighboring locations, a few of these archaeological and artistic treasures are exquisitely preserved and are reproduced here for the first time. This volume takes readers on a journey through these remote sites, focusing especially on the amazing temple complex of Mangyu. The chapels, shrines, and dazzling murals presented here not only reveal much about late Mahayana Buddhism in India—its art, culture, and history—but also help fill a gap in our knowledge of the development of early Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhism.

Indian Tibet Tibetan India: The Cultural Legacy of the Western Himalayas
Niyogi Books; Delhi, India; 2015; 9789383098934; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 28 x 24 Cm 
Inspired by the first cultural expedition into the Western Himalayas by August Hermann Francke in 1909 which resulted in the region’s denomination as ‘Indian Tibet’, Peter van Ham has travelled for years in the long inaccessible Indo-Tibetan border regions after they were opened to the public in the beginning of the 1990’s. In secluded and remote high-altitude-valleys of breath-taking grandeur he documented some of the last refuges of Tibetan and early Indian culture and photographed people and the unique testimonies of their art, religion and architecture, culturally influenced by both of the region’s great neighbours—India and Tibet.With the aid of rare archival and contemporary textual and visual materials, many seen here for the first time ever, Peter van Ham draws a comprehensive picture of the fascinating history of the exploration of the present Indian border region towards Tibet. Knowledgably he describes the customs of its various inhabitants many of whom still follow their age-old traditions which at present are being stimulated and revived by the many exiled Tibetans that have found a new home in the region, thus designating it as ‘Tibetan India.’ With a message by the Dalai Lama and a preface by Michel Peissel.Printed Pages: 244 with Numerous colour illustrations & 2 maps. 105618
