Reading Culture: Theories, Praxis, Politics
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2006; 076193474X; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
The theory, methods and politics of cultural studies are examined in this book which is concerned with the ways in which public culture reflects the relations between identities, race, gender and class. Adapting a range of theories and approaches, the author demonstrates how a cultural form effectively disseminates meanings - a political act - by marginalizing certain identities, norms, modes of thinking and knowledges while valuing others. The book covers topics as diverse as comic book superheroes, patriotic songs in Hindi films, the projection of 'authenticity' in tourist brochures and the poetics of display in museums.

Virtual Worlds: Culture and Politics in the Age of Cybertechnology
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0761932291; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
This interdisciplinary cultural study of the new technologies discusses cyberculture as it mediates, and in turn is mediated by, the contexts of globalisation, politics, medical science and war, and the realms of everyday life such as learning, identity, consumption, and leisure. It pays attention to common and visible expressions of technoculture - including music videos, niche marketing, literature, and cosmetic surgery - in order to highlight its distinguishing features. Using a range of insights from theorists such as Donna Haraway, Stuart Hall, Manuel Castells, Paul Virilio and Katherine Hayles, Virtual Worlds explores the dissemination of cybertechnology into the social and political fields.

Citizenship and Identity in the Age of Surveillance
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2015; 1107080584; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book is a study of cultures of surveillance from CCTV to genetic data-gathering and the new forms of subjectivity and citizenship that are forged in such cultures. It studies data bodies and space as domains within which this subjectivity of the vulnerable individual emerges. The book also proposes that we can see a shift within cultures of surveillance where from active participation in the process of surveilling a witness-citizen emerges. The book therefore seeks to alter surveillance as a mere top-down system instead arguing that surveillance is also a mode of engagement with the world enabling trust accountability and eventually a responsible humanitarianism.Printed Pages:240. 101486

You email your report, check the position of your stocks, play your favourite Rahman, and upload new patches for your favourite simulation game—all using the same three-inch-by-five device that fits into your palm. You chat, share, play and blog, even check for directions to the new Italian restaurant in town online. Everyday life is now digital. ‘Digital Cool’ is simultaneously about individualisation, with its make-believe detachment (‘Cool’), and the fierce collectivism facilitated by New Media. There’s the young woman waiting for the tube while swishing through the bestseller she’s just bought on her iPad, indifferent to her surroundings; there is also the fury of the mainly online Pink Chaddis campaign of 2009..Printed Pages: 264. 101862

States of Sentiment: Exploring the Cultures of Emotion
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8125041990; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book proposes that our responses to various situations, events and representations are not entirely private, individual and internal. They have a crucial social dimension. Emotions are a result of the internalisation of cultural codes and discourses that inform, and even determine the appropriateness or inappropriateness of emotional responses. We see a terrorist as a threat, a cyclone as worrying, a rags-to-riches story as a feel-good moment. We mourn the sudden death of Michael Jackson, we rejoice in the victory of a triumphant Tendulkar and we react with horror and shock to 9/11. All of these are emotional responses to specific representational strategies that present these people and events in particular ways. These strategies in turn construct our emotional relations to the events and people. Exactly how sentiments of care, passion, desire, pleasure, fear, sympathy or pity are discursively commodified (made a commodity) in the mass media, films, reportage and the other public culture forms today is the subject of this book. It demonstrates how cultures today are getting emotion-driven. The book is organised around four ‘sentiments’—well-being, suffering, aversion and hope. It uses reality TV, hate speech, self-help literature, media coverage of 9/11 and 26/11, autobiographies, websites and films, and blends theoretical insights with elements of innovative inquiry, to show how emotions are packaged and how these emotions then determine social relations itself.Printed Pages: 316. 101866

Gandhi: An Illustrated Biography
Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 9789351941224; Hardcover; New; New; 25 x 25 Cm 
His life and ideals remain an inspiration across the world but in reality, it was the complexity of his character that made Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi such a fascinating subject. Yet, much of the finer details of his life and intellectual growth has been obscured by the greatness of his achievements. To bring them all together in this illustrated biography is to bring alive one of the most revered figures in modern Indian history, and in a way that is a departure from earlier works. Gandhi: An Illustrated Biography is an intimate study into the evolution of a mischievous, fun-loving boy, into the Mahatma. From his schooling and early marriage in Kathiawar to his first brushes with the grandeur of London; from his chance employment for a legal case in South Africa to a train ride in Pietermaritzburg that led to his first fight for equality; from a relatively unsuccessful lawyer to a globally celebrated crusader for human rights – Gandhi was that rare rebel who redefined the meaning of mass resistance for generations to come. This book is the result of intensive research and tracks Gandhi’s life through photographs sourced from across the world. The chronological text and accompanying photographs bring out his unique complexities – his failures and successes, the intimate relations he shared with his contemporaries, and the difficult one he shared with his own family. This book is a labour of love and an attempt to portray Gandhi’s methods and his message for a new generation of readers. Printed Pages: 324 with numerious colour illustrations. 107412

The protection of human rights has now become one of the keystones in arch of peace, democracy and development.

Indian Air Force: The Maintenance Paradigm
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789381904541; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The scope of maintenance functions in the Indian Air Force (IAF) is vast. The need for a very specialised professional conduct in each one of these is obvious from the width of deliberations in this book. Further, the reader can appreciate the virtues of an integrated approach to maintenance. The text is, therefore, as relevant to the aircrew as it is to the engineers, technicians and logisticians. The paradigm of maintenance has attained a unique character over the years in the IAF despite legacies from its British genesis. Maintenance philosophies have been adaptively developed to support ever growing air power dimensions and exclusive indigenous requirements. A maintenance engineer in the IAF gets involved with every engineering aspect of planning, design/development, acquisition and projects besides maintenance and logistics support to operations. Unlike most other air forces, the communications and Information Technology (IT) disciplines are also taken on by the maintenance man in the IAF. All activities within the maintenance arena have been dealt with ingeniously in this book. This book reviews diverse fields of engineering activities. Beginning with the need for an organisational fusion, an array of specialised functions has been presented to finally suggest an integrated maintenance approach. Quality discipline and goal alignment are prime factors – emphasis on these runs through all the discussions. Learning from nearly four decades of experience in the Air Force, a few mindsets have been highlighted, with suggestions for a paradigm shift. It is always fascinating to relive memories of leaders who shaped our destiny. These examples have the potential to send a surge of renewed motivation through every air warrior. The chapter on the work force is a tribute to the commitment of airmen and civilians.Printed Pages: 152. 104319

The Raj Revisited
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2012; 9789381523285; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Two hundred years of imperial rule left a legacy of Raj literature comprising journals, diaries and travelogues, ably complemented with the visual images created by the numerous British artists, both amateur and professional. Until the late 18th century, there was no visual record of India since landscape painting did not figure in an otherwise rich Indian art. It was left to these dedicated and meticulous artists like Hodges, the Daniells and Gold to amass a vast illustrative treasure ranging from the Sahib’s day to day routine to the people of India, with their diverse customs and manners and way of life. The Raj Revisited is a virtual pilgrimage in to the past, a guided tour of imperial India. It is sumptuously illustrated with reproductions of the finest paintings, aquatints, engravings and lithographs, assembled for the first time in a single publication, from the collections of the libraries and museums in India, Britain and the U. S. A. A vibrant narrative blends with the rich imagery to create a wonderful tableau of the social and cultural scene of a bygone era. Printed Pages: 160. 037387

Safeguarding Heritage: A Monumental Glory
Bharatiya Kala Prakashan; Delhi, India; 2008; 8180901971; Hardcover; New; New; 
Management of heritage sites has been much talked about subject these days. Heritage sites are also seen as places of tourist interest, thus some States are focusing on “Heritage Tourism”. Management of heritage site means it should be kept and maintained in the manner it should attract visitors and they should feel safe and comfortable in visiting them. There are various aspects to this. But, the most important integral aspect is of security and safety of both, the cultural wealth as well as the tourists. Acts and Rules may be framed for the purpose and ‘Protection Notice Boards’ may be displayed, but a task force is needed to ensure their implementation. Keeping this in mind with my vast experience, I have tried to explain each and every aspect very clearly for maintaining foolproof security and safety at the heritage sites, monuments and museums; as well as the necessity and importance of security personnel. The Book is all about “Management of Heritage Sites from Security Point of View”, although references of other agencies are also mentioned which are engaged in preservation of heritage.It is now for the management and the security agencies to ensure that they implement the security procedures at the heritage sites, monuments and museums in the desired manner and not merely for namesake. Because security personnel would be first to bear the brunt due to any laxity in security norms. Heritage is to be preserved and protected for the posterity as an invaluable treasure of the nation, reflecting its glorious past. Printed Pages: 149 with 22 colour plates & 13 maps. 110688

Scarcity, Conflicts, and Cooperation
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0195676793; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This institutional framework of an economy defines opportunities for individuals, determines the business climate, and shapes the incentives and organizations for collective action by local communities in resolving their common problems. Institutional failures, weak accountability mechanisms, and missed opportunies for cooperative problem-solving are the main themes of the book, with the role of distributive conflicts in the persistence of dysfunctional institutions a common thread. Special iss ues taken up include the institutions for securing property rights and resolving coordination failures the structural basis of power commitment devices and political accountability the complex relationship between democracy and poverty (with examples from India, where both have been durable) decentralization and devolution of power persistence of corruption ethnic conflicts and impediments to collective action (including a study of cooperation in irrigation in Tamil Nadu). The essays are important for understanding the development process and the problems of governance and institutional change in developing countries with issues examined often in the empirical context of India Printed Pages: 318. 014003

Can the welfare state survive in an economically integrated world? Many have argued that globalization has undermined national policies to raise the living standards and enhance the economic opportunities of the poor. This book, by sixteen of the world’s leading authorities in international economics and the welfare state, suggests a surprisingly different set of consequences: Globalization does not preclude social insurance and egalitarian redistribution — but it does change the mix of policies that can accomplish these ends. Globalization and Egalitarian Redistribution demonstrates that the free flow of goods, capital, and labor has increased the inequality of volatility of labor earnings in advanced industrial societies — while constraining governments’ ability to tax the winners from globalization to compensate workers for their loss. This flow has meanwhile created opportunities for enhancing the welfare of the less well off in poor and middle-income countries. Comprising eleven essays framed by the editors’ introduction and conclusion, this book represents the first systematic look at how globalization affects policies aimed at reducing inequalities. The contributors are Keith Banting, Pranab Bardhan, Carles Boix, Samuel Bowles, Minsik Choi, Richard Johnston, Covadonga Meseguer Yebra, Karl Ove Moene, Layna Mosley, Claus Offe, Ugo Pagano, Adam Przeworski, Kenneth Scheve, Matthew J. Slaughter, Stuart Soroka, and Michael Wallerstein. 019103

Decentralisation, Governance and Development: An Indian Perspective
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2017; 9789386296887; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
India believed it could take development closer to its people, make the government more accountable, and empower women and oppressed communities through decentralisation—the provision of political and financial autonomy at the local level through the three-tier Panchayati Raj structure.Fifteen years after the 73rd and 74th Amendments that brought in this innovation, what is the performance of the local government in India? Decentralisation, Governance and Development provides a comprehensive assessment that answers this question.Drawing from the examples of the two states where decentralisation has been most successful—Kerala and West Bengal—this volume explores the causes and effects of failures in implementation and issues of governance. These essays by scholars from diverse disciplines, as well as policymakers and practitioners, will equip readers with both a theoretical understanding of the issues concerning local government, and the practical problems of designing and implementing policy framework in the field.This book will be useful to students and scholars of development studies, economics, political science and sociology, and public servants and policymakers.

Continuing Traditions: Les Traditions Perpetuelles
Mapin Publishing; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789385360022; Softcover; New; 
The age of exploration was one in which a confident and wealthy Europe was ready to look at the world in different ways. By this time, the emerging European imagination could see the ‘world’ as an imagined or designative concept. Textiles brought the colours of the ‘other’ lands, and its mass printing and production brought a sense of fantasy and playfulness into European homes.Continuing Traditions follows the reflections on inter-relationships between textiles, trade and non-performing visual arts in India. The volume has been brought out in conjunction with an exhibition in India called ‘Safar-nama: Journeys through a Kalamkari Hanging’, an exhibition of digital prints of an ancient painted fabric piece in the kalamkari tradition of the Coromandel Coast which is now housed at the Museum of Printed Textiles of Mulhouse in France, along with ‘Continuing Traditions’, a show of contemporary artists and designers whose works can relate to it.Continuing Traditions showcases the works of contemporary Indian artists who have used selective aspects of textile craft or textile imagery as inputs in their practice. After a long modernist interregnum in which the sole objective was to create a thing-initself, these works emerge as a postmodernist re-assertion of interrelationship between worldly phenomenon.

History of Modern Political Movements
Akansha Publishing House; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8187606401; Hardcover; New; New; 
The present work is an attempt to Study at the regional level the complexities of various Political Movements in the era of India?s freedom struggle. The three movements in Orissa namely - movement or the Formation of a separate province, the Congressled movements and the Anti-feudal movements in the princely states overlapping each other, dominated the period of the present study. The movement for the assertion of Oriya identity and the Demand for a separate province for the Oriya-speaking people placed under various presidencies raises questions like whether it was nationalist, whether it was contradictory, cooperative or complementary with the Indian nationalist movement? Similarly the Nature of the movement in the princely states sand its inter-relation with the other two movements raises issues like the commitment of the Congress to the democratic ideas. One may question their nationalism or even their patriotism. In contrast, it is difficult to call them non-nationalist considering the whole gamut of their contribution for the all-round development of the province.Table of Contents Preface Introduction 1.

Ethnic Life-Worlds in North-East India: An Analysis
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0761936130; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Ethnic Life-worlds in North-East India: An Analysis draws upon the phenomenological notion of the life-world to understand the culturally-embedded construction of communities, for whom the lived experience of cultural politics constitutes their identity. It analyses the cultural and political determinants of ethnic- and identity-oriented struggles in India’s North-East, as well as the cultural politics of ethnic mobilizations in the region. Such mobilizations are an attempt to construct a self-identity distinct from that constructed by the state—both colonial and post-colonial India—which becomes a source of concern for the latter with regard to its achieving legitimacy and development in the region. While both the state and insurgent groups carve out their distinct ideological and political agenda on to the life-world of the North-East, it is at the point of diversion that the struggle for establishing such agenda falls into the trappings of constitutional determinism. This book analyses the articulation of ethnic politics in North-East India that takes into account moves for integration as well as apparent differences. In doing so, it critically examines two major insurgent outfits of the region—NSCN and ULFA. It also discusses struggles launched by the Naga and Assamese people and develops a neologism of nations-from-below, arguing that one needs to take into account the concrete totality of the people’s lived experiences. It bases this analysis on a critical discussion of the colonial construction of tribal identity and its post-colonial critique. Thought-provoking and analytical, this book opens a new window to the study of India’s North-East, which will intrigue students and scholars across various disciplines of development studies, sociology, philosophy, anthropology, political science and ethnic studies, and will be of interest to policy-makers, NGOs and global humanitarian communities.

While the watershed case, Indira Gandhi vs Raj Narain, proved the strength of India's democratic institutions, it also acted as the catalyst for the imposition of the Emergency. Based on detailed notes of the court proceedings, The Case That Shook India is both a legal and a historical document of a case that decisively shaped India's political destiny. The author, advocate Prashant Bhushan, sets out to reveal the goings-on inside the courtroom as well as the manoeuvrings outside it, including threats, bribes and deceit. Providing a blow-by-blow account, he vividly recreates courtroom scenes, where the arguments are by turns scathing, colourful and downright shocking. As the case unfolds, we see how the ruling government can misuse legislative power, government resources and political funding. The book also includes the Supreme Court proceedings, which went unreported in the media due to censorship and throw light on the constitutional amendments that were enacted. In Bhushan's forceful and gripping narrative, the experience is of having a frontrow seat to watch one of the most important cases in India's legal history play out before one's eyes."

Praxis Commix: The Quest for Love Across Cultures
Vitasta Publishing Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789382711001; Softcover; New; 
This is the story of an achiever who, right from the time he trudges to school carrying a heavy bag, asks several questions about the world and his role in it. He makes it to a prestigious engineering institute in Gujarat and then to Ireland and France for higher studies. He falls in love first with an Indian girl and then with a foreigner. As he struggles with the restrictions of culture, he wonders why an individual's happiness has to be submerged to uphold tradition. In all this, he holds a mirror to Indian society, wondering how a country can progress in this age of globalisation if it clings so strongly to age-old mores. These questions will find resonance in readers' own lives, making this much more than the gripping story of one young man's coming of age in the new millennium. Printed Pages: 176. 107234

Create, Copy, Disrupt: India’s Intellectual Property Dilemmas
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 0199470669; Hardcover; New; New; 
In 1947, a newly independent India was saddled with a host of intellectual property (IP) laws left behind by the British. In the following decades, India broke away from colonial IP legacies, while navigating international treaty negotiations in the light of its redefined national interests. These changes affected ordinary lives—be it through medicines, music, movies, books, food, yoga, or the Internet—but have never been narrated to a larger audience. This book unravels the development of India’s IP law and policy in modern times, in a form and style designed for the general reader. The chapters in the book centre on different industries and sectors, such as pharmaceuticals, book publishing, cinema, music, the Internet, food, yoga, and traditional knowledge. Each chapter features a lively narrative that has been constructed from various sources, including parliamentary debates, expert reports, interviews, archival research, and case law. The book’s unique focus is on the politics and history of Indian IP, rather than the black letter of the law. Printed Pages: 400. 111592

Pranayama: A Classical and Traditional Approach
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Private Limited/Research India Press; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8178224828; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
Pranayama is a compound word meaning Prana 'Vital Energy' and Ayama 'Control and Regulation'. But it is not basically breath-control or breath-regulation. Pranayama needs a lot of study of breath usages, applications and Addressals by-on-in-with breath. This book provides a classical and traditional approach towards life by breath control with different type of asnas. This differentiates between physiology of respiration that comes in body-science and physiology of breathing that occurs in the science of yog. According to the book the entire human embodiment is a breathing organism, even inner, outer, physical, psycho-mental, psychic, gross and subtle and esoteric organs, senses and constitutions.
