2301 Arnold Keppel
Gun Running and The Indian North-West Forontier
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1987; 8121201160; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Interest of the British public had been centred on the internal problems of the Indian Empire, and chiefly those connected with the Hindu portion of the population. As a result of the alarming Wave of sedition that swept over Bengal, accompanied by Brahmanical revivals in the two Presidencies, the affairs of the North-West Frontier, together with the problems connected with the Mahommedan subjects of the King-Emperor, had gradually been relegated to a hazardous obscurity, and had not received the attention they deserved. The crisis on the frontier in the autumn of 1910, as a direct result of the suppression of the arms traffic in the Persian Gulf, had the effect of switching the limelight once again on to this most interesting quarter. People were at last Beginning to realize that if the arming of the Pathan belt continued a frontier rising in the future would bean affair of infinitely more gravity than thereto fore. But in spite of this the operations of the blockading squadron in the Persian Gulf were not sufficiently recognized as an integral part of frontier policy, and had attracted attention more from the hazardous Nature of the undertaking than from any bearing that the ultimate suppression of the traffic might have on the tranquillity of the frontier. It was with this object., namely, of emphasizing the connection between the operations of the blockading squadron and the preservation of Peace on the Pathan border, that the author ventured on the publication of this book. Though the book hardly brings the History of the frontier comprehensively and updated, it had proved to be of vital significance due to dearth of literature on the subject.Printed Pages: 228. 105671

Mumbai De-Intellectualised: Rise and Decline of a Culture of Thinking
Promilla & Co., Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8185002975; First Edition; Paperback; New; 5 x 7.5 Inches 
Mumbai in the first decade of the 21st century is evidently on the threshold of a new and prosperous era. Having understood the city's strategic importance, economists are predicting a greater international role for it, while town-planners are working overnight for its make over, expecting in-flow of unforeseen wealth. Paradoxically, however, intellectualism that this progressive, multi-cultural city had inherited is conspicuously on the decline. Whether in social reform or in cultural renaissance, in literature or in performing arts, Mumbai had enjoyed an undisputed position of leadership for well over a century. Today it suffers from intellectual insolvency and cultural slide down. Once known as the most progressive city of India, Mumbai appears to have abandoned the path of enlightenment. The author, in a severe indictment of academicians, media persons, writers and culture bearers, holds failure of intellectuals responsible for this malaise. Printed pages: 206. 029244

Cult of the Goddess
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8124607974; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
This volume is comprised of forty-one well researched and illustrated papers on Cult of the Goddess. It tries to trace the origin and trajectory of the divine feminine force in art and culture for over a period of five millennia, which is a great achievement in itself. While exploring the living tradition of the Great Goddess, the book offers unique insight to the psyche of India and the Greater India. In the multifaceted goddess cult, the goddess takes diverse forms in her role as a destroyer of demonic forces and a donor of boons to her devotees. The goddess is also the divine consort, creator of the universe, source of progeny, prosperity and immortality. In her numerous roles the goddess maintains the equilibrium and sanctity of the universe. In mythology, the Mother Goddess is worshipped as the earth, fish, snake, tree or the forest. The book delves deep into the imagination and religious lives of the people to understand the meaning of rituals, philosophy and metaphysics. The enduring appeal of the goddess in folk traditions and in classic literary sources is discussed from various points of view. The span and the depth of research encompassing the goddess include the shifting changes in the present era and finds her manifestations in Bonabibi, Kadamkottu Makkam and Manushi Swaccha Narayani, in addition to the well-known concept of Parashakti, Lakshmi, Sarasvati, Durga, Mahishasuramardini, Prajnaparamita, Hathor, Isis and Mother Mary. This richly illustrated volume on Cult of the Goddess is a rare and priceless collection for art historians, researchers, students, and others interested in art, culture and religion.Printed Pages: 719 with 1 map, 24 line-drawings, 111 b/w & 349 colour illustrations. 100301

The Mouse Merchant: Money in Ancient India (The Story of Indian Business)
Penguin Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 0143424726; Softcover; New; 13 x 20 Cm 
Even in ancient India, money is always a good thing and everyone wants it. The stories in The Mouse Merchant selected from the Sanskrit universe, from the period of the late Rig Veda to the twelfth century tells us how money was dealt with in everyday life in ancient and medieval Indian society. At the heart of these tales is the merchant. Sometimes gullible, sometimes greedy ingenious at some moments, dim-witted at others and hopelessly in love with courtesans but also loyal to their wives, our merchant heroes show how innovation in business is sometimes more important than capital. The Mouse Merchant puts these stories into the context of Indian business history, giving not only rare insights into the romance of the ancient seafaring life but also great wisdom about money.

When Art Spiegelman visits his father Vladek to ask him about his time under the Third Reich, the old man begins the story with his first meeting with Vladek’s mother. Prone to his senile lapses and his stereotypical Jewish tendencies, Vladek reveals the cruel reality of Hitler’s regime. Art Spiegelman portrays Jews as mice, Poles as pigs and Nazis as cats. He reveals how his parents were split apart by the Holocaust and thrown into separate concentration camps. Vladek struggles to come into contact with his wife, going to great extents to send word to her that he is alive and well. The story of their escape and their journey to America is a classic example of the terror left behind by the Nazis. This graphic novel is the definitive work of art for all those who wish to understand why the memories of the Holocaust continue to haunt people to this very day.

A History of Sanskrit Literature
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Private Limited/Research India Press; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8120800958; Softcover; New; 
It is undoubtedly a surprising fact that down to the publication of this book, the history of Sanskrit literature as a whole has been written in English. For not only does that literature possess much intrinsic merit, but the light it sheds on the life and thought of the population of which were of a peculiar interest for the British nation. Owing chiefly to the lack of an adequate account of the subject, few, even of the young men who left Britain every year to be its future rulers, required connected information about the literature in which the civilisation of Modern India can be traced to its sources, and without which that civilisation cannot be fully understood. The work presents a complete history of Sanskrit literature in a condensed and succinct form. It embodies a general study of the Vedic, Epic Puranic, Classical and Philosophical Literature. It sheds light on the life and thought of Ancient and Medieval India as reflected in the literary productions of those periods. Through the brief epitome given in the Appendix on Technical Literature including Law, Science and Arts it and instructive. The bibliographical notes and index appended at the end add to the value and render the work most useful to the reader. Even in this even the outstanding researches of eminent antiquarians have become outdated, the utility of this small work has not diminished by the passing away of the three quarters of a century.

A Constitutional History of India (1600-1935)
Low Price Publications/D.K. Publishers Distributors Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8175360682; Hardcover; New; New; 
In the book The Constitutional History of India<-i><-b> the author has made the necessarily concentrated attention on these matters which appeared to be of special significance as bearing on the evolution of self-government. After the earlier periods administrative and judicial details have, therefore, been passed over.The Indian Civil Service, however, brought with it British political ideas and made English the official language of the higher funations of government. The result was inevitable, with steadily increasing strength the Indian intelligentsia has demanded the fulfilment of self-government in form of British parliamentary institutions.The vital change betweenthe Act of 1935 and 1919 is thus formerly attested; if it was possible to fit the changes then made as amendments into the substance of the old system that was out of the question with the Act of 1935.The new arrangements are obviously suited only for a brief transitional period. It is hoped that the necessary delimitation of constituencies under the Act of 1935 and the investigations of final conditions will be carried out in time to permit in inaugurating provincial autonomy being Part III of the Act into operation in 1937. In the changed conditions there was hardly any chance of Members of the Indian Civil Service attaining governorships and as such there was a further decline in the attractiveness of a service which has conferred great benefits on India but which inevitably must lose authority under the new regime.

Our Life After Death or the Teaching of the Bible Concerning the Unseen World (Christian Classics Revived: 11)
Christian World Imprints/B.R. Publishing Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789351480693; Reprinted; Hardcover; New; New; 
The book outshines an Intermediate or Hades life, a life in which every person enters at the moment of death, in a physically unclothed or disembodied state. It is a mid way existence between the Earth-life and the future Heaven-life. According to the Author, many Christian teachers and writers have barely mentioned the existence of this Intermediate life. And, those who have, enshroud it such, it seems that this life has vague, and unreal existence, i.e., it is a veritable "world of shadows". But, this book shows that Hades life is a real phase of human existence, as is the present Earth-life and as will be the Heaven-life.The sermons embodied in this Treatise, make the exposition more exhaustive and connected. The book is not mere few months' reflection but it is the result of convictions that were maturing within the author for a period of more than twenty years.This intellectual presentation, away from insensible speculations, brings out the real truth of `life after death' from a Biblical perspective thus scaring away those ugly shadows which overhung so much of the theology of the past. It will be helpful to those who are earnest students of God's truth, those who want to delve deeper into the subject including Christian Laity, Church Clergies, Researchers and Students, alike.Printed Pages: 278. 106410

The Voyage of John Huyghen Van Linschoten to the East Indies: from the Old English Translation of 1598, 2 vols.
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1997; 812150788X; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
Present work narrates with exhaustive notes, the travels of John Huyghen Van Linschoten to East Indies and is based on the English translation (1598) of the first part of his Dutch work Itinerario (1592), which contained the Itinerary proper. Itinerario when originally published in Dutch was considered a revelation. After its publication, everyone learned that the colonial empire of Portuguese was rotten, and that an energetic rival would have every chance of supplanting them. Its importance met with speedy and extensive recognition. English, German and Latin translations were quickly brought out. For long the book was constantly quoted as authority; and as picture of Portuguese India at the end of the sixteenth century, still retains interest. Printed Pages: 728. 016464

Leadership: Lessons From The Ancient World (How Learning from the Past Can Win You the Future)
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8126520965; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
The study of ancient events from a business perspective offers a unique way of observing how leadership actually works. The leaders presented and discussed in this book are significant figures in their own right. Many of the things they did were extremely successful, and the consequences of their failures were just as spectacular. These leaders decided on courses of action within the context of their times, aware of the range of possibilities that were open to them. This allows us to note how they responded in different contexts and how temperament, intelligence, experience and advice came into play as they dealt with pressing problems. The actual methods they used to implement their decisions are also instructive, since they illustrate a choice of approaches still faced by managers as leaders today.Printed Pages: 352. 104713

Sufi Heirs of the Prophet: The Indian Naqshbandiyya and the Rise of the Mediating Sufi Shaykh
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8121512832; First Indian Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
Sufi Heirs of the Prophet explores the multifaceted development of personal authority in Islamic societies by tracing the transformation of one mystical sufi lineage in colonial India, the Naqshbandiyya. Arthur F. Buehler isolates four sources of personal authority evident in the practices of the Naqshbandiyya—lineage, spiritual traveling, status as a Prophetic exemplar, and the transmission of religious knowledge—to demonstrate how Muslim religious leaders have exercised charismatic leadership through their association with the most compelling of personal Islamic symbols, the prophet Muhammad. Buehler clarifies the institutional structure of sufism, analyzes overlapping configurations of personal sufi authority, and details how and why revivalist Indian Naqshbandis abandoned spiritual practices that had sustained their predecessors for more than five centuries. He looks specifically at the role of Jama’at ‘Ali Shah (d. 1951) to explain current Naqshbandi practices. Printed Pages: 339. 037922

India in 1858: A Summary of the Existing Administration Political, Fiscal and Judicial of British India Together with Laws and Public Documents Relating There to From the Earlist to the Present Time
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1986; 8121200237; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
After the Sepoy Mutiny of 1857, the Indian Empire of The East India Company was taken over by the British Crown for direct administration. The Mutiny and its causes and impacts riveted interest of all communities of England on India. Obviously the Civil Government and Military Defence had to be reorganized and it was necessary that all concerned people should know what the actually existing system on which India had been depending was. At that moment, Indian taxation, law, and judicial procedure were the subjects of controversy in and outside the British Parliament. Many facts related to those subjects had to be made accessible to all concerned. These documents and facts are buried in the folios which contain the minutes of evidence obtained by the Parliamentary Committees and contemporary histories of India, interwoven with opinions, criticisms and suggestions. The purpose of the volume, originally published within a year of the Mutiny, is to disentangle the facts from opinions and to extricate the information from the mass of criticism and controversies. The Author aimed at simply presenting, as faithfully and as concisely as possible, the mechinary of the Anglo-Indian Government as existed immediately before and after the Mutiny. The revenue map along with a table included in the volume is intended to offer data for a fair comparison of the various systems under which the Land Revenue of India was then collected. The facts and documents contained in this work are still very valuable source material to the students of British India and Indian politics., About the author:- , Content:- Chapters I. Introduction Sketch of the Political History of British India II. Existing Government of British India III. The Instruments of Indian Government IV. Administration of Justice in British India V.

The Mind of Ramana Maharshi
Jaico Publishing House; Delhi, India; 8172242115; Softcover; New; 
Sri Ramana Maharshi (1879-1950) was still in his teens when he attained enlightenment through a remarkable experience, as if undergoing death of the physical body, while remaining in full consciousness. He left home for the sacred hill of Arunachala where he taught the purest form of Advaita Vedanta (non-duality) through the simple discipline of self-inquiry. His teaching, his principal instruction to all his devotees was always to meditate on the question Who am I?In this book Arthur Osborne gives an account of the life and teachings of Sri Ramana Maharshi. It has a special relevance to our age with its outlines of a religion based on the Indian scriptures which is essentially spiritual, without ceasing to be rational and ethical.Printed Pages: 276. 105371

This Book examines how communication processes might be used a t a community level to bring about social change. Communication in this respect is defined as the act of people coming together to decide who they are, what they want, and how they will obtain what they want. Social change will be more sustainable if the affected community owns not just the Physical inputs and outputs, put also owns the process and content of the communication involved. The book argues that if any External agents wish to contribute to the process of communication and social change, they should shift their approach away from persuasion and one-way Transmission of information, and instead engage in dialogue and discussion with members of the community.

Greater India
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1981; 8121502209; First Edition; Cloth; New; New; 15 Cms x 22.5 Cms 
The concept of a world-community where a nation's interest is to be subordinated to the general welfare of the mankind has, of late, been driven home by the UNO. It may be puzzling novelty to pronounce that this gospel of the UNO has been a time-honoured facet of India's foreign policy in the distant past. Thus while the west stood for "my country, right or wrong." India forged ahead to harness permanent benefits for the universe. No wonder, the umbrella of Indian cultural influence got inside it far-flung lands and islands both in the east and the west that came to be rightly named "Greater India." India has been the king-pin in this cultural knot. A large number of standard books in French and Dutch languages held the field to begin with. Works in English came rather late. There has always been the need for a quick survey of the entire subject in a brief compass and within an easy reach. The present study is rather a gamut that couches the entire field and material in a systematic, easy and balanced historical narration to cater to the needs of the students and the general readers alike.

The Foreigner
Orient Paperbacks; New Delhi, India; 8122201466; Softcover; New; 
A Foreigner is the story of a young man who is detached, almost estranged, a man who sees himself as a stranger, an alien wherever he goes or lives- in Kenya where he was born, in UK and USA where he was a student and in India where he finally settles down. His detachment transcends barriers of geography, nationality and culture. It propels him from one predicament to another, sucking in the wake several people, including June; an attractive American with whom he had a short lived but passionate affair.The transitoriness associated with the word 'foreigner' permeates the novel and is handled with remarkable maturity reminding the reader of epoch-making The Outsider by Albert Camus. The protagonist's anguish at the meaninglessness of the human condition and the eventual release from the anxieties of life through karmayoga, the principle of action without attachment, add to the aesthetics of the work.Printed Pages: 192. 106643

The Last Labyrinth
Orient Paperbacks; New Delhi, India; 8122205062; Softcover; New; 
The Last Labyrinth is a splendid novel — serious, disturbing, lyrical and irresistibly readable, a fascinating exploration into the turbulent inner world of a successful urban India.Som Bhaskar is a millionaire-industrialist, married to a woman of his choice who has borne him two children, yet relentlessly driven by undefined hunger which he unsuccessfully seeks to satisfy by possession — of an object, a business enterprise, a woman. Much like Saul Bellow's Henderson he is always crying, 'I want, I want, I want.' His search taken him from Bombay to Benares, at once holy and repellent — with its narrow, dirty lanes, dancing girls and a mystical aura.Amidst this contrasting juxtaposition of locales, the novel explores the meaning of life and death, illusion and reality, desire and resignation.Here is an eternally contemporary theme with all its complexities; the story's spiritual and sensuous dimensions are interwoven with great finesse making this novel a rare, unforgettable treat.Printed Pages: 208. 106644
