23902 Paranjoy Guha Thakurta and Shankar Raghuraman
Divided We Stand: India in a Time of Coalitions
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0761936637; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This topical and absorbing book, written by two eminent journalists, explains why India has entered a new era of coalition politics and analyses the consequences and implications of this relatively recent phenomenon. Transition from single party domination to multi-party configurations or coalitions, the authors argue, is neither temporary nor an aberration. Dismissing the notion of bi-polarity, and resting the debate on whether coalition governments are here to stay, the authors debate on whether coalitions are at best a necessary evil or are better than single-party governments. Among other issues the authors dwell upon are: - The quagmire of coalition politics and the fate of the leading political players—a gradual revival in the fortunes of the Congress and the `honeymoon` with the Left coming under cloud, the power struggle within the BJP, `social engineering` and victory of the BSP in Uttar Pradesh. - The rise of the new dominant Left, the internal differences and the influence on the country`s economic policies. - Political coalitions leading to better governance and greater federalism and reduced incidence of corruption. - The new politics of economic liberalisation and globalisation, together with the crucial issue of growth with equity. - The crucial question of whether coalitions can provide stable governments and under what circumstances. Challenging many widely held views on the Indian political process, this book is a must read for anyone interested in contemporary Indian politics at the beginning of the 21st century.

23903 Paranjoy Guha Thakurta and Shankar Raghuraman
A Time of Coalitions: Divided We Stand
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0761932372; First Edition; Paperback; New; New; 5.5" x 8.5" 
This topical and absorbing book, written by two eminent journalists, convincingly argues against two commonly held beliefs concerning Indian politics. Their basic premise is that India has come a long way from the time when a single party, the Congress, dominated our polity. Instead, it has given way to multi-party configurations or coalitions which, they demonstrate, are neither temporary nor an aberration—coalitions are here to stay, they say, at least in the foreseeable future. Second, they expertly dismiss the view that India’s polity is essentially bipolar, led by either of the two largest parties—the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Congress Party—and that other political parties have no option but to choose which of these two they will align themselves with. The authors take the view that coalition governments are in fact better equipped to deal with the tensions of a divided society while single-party governments tend to both centralise and homogenise. Among the numerous issues and trends cogently discussed are: - the rise of the BJP from the time it was virtually wiped out of Parliament in 1984, and it’s current faction-ridden character - the dramatic decline of the Congress, especially the fact that the minorities and oppressed groups, once its largest constituency, are now deserting it in large numbers - the continuing fragmentation of the Indian polity and the rise of regional parties which are not necessarily narrow and partisan, but capable of looking at issues from a wider perspective - the changing tactics of the Left and their internal differences - the crucial question of whether coalitions can provide stable Union governments - the possibility of alternate political formations—headed neither by the BJP nor the Congress—coming to power at the centre - the extent to which political coalitions have led to better governance, brought about a greater degree of federalism, and reduced the incidence of corruption - the manner in which successive governments have handled the new politics of economic liberalisation and the central issue of growth with equity Printed Pages: 408. 001422

Foundations of Tilak's Nationalism: Discrimination, Education and Hindutva
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8125039198; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Foundations of Tilak’s Nationalism: Discrimination, Education and Hindutva shows how, as opposed to being simply a struggle of the colonised against the coloniser’s oppression, the anti-colonial struggle in India was much more nuanced and complicated. In this process, it examines the role of Bal Gangadhar Tilak and draws attention to issues concerning education, gender, caste, peasantry and communalism, how these were interlinked and had a decisive influence on his anti-colonial nationalism. The study also deconstructs the categories of the moderate and the extremist, the reformer and the orthodox and questions the validity of calling reformers like M. G. Ranade, G. K. Gokhale, N. G. Chandavarkar and G. G. Agarkar as moderates, collaborators and compradors of colonial rule. This book critically analyses Tilak’s stance against a single Indian nationality free from caste and religious prejudices and gender inequalities, of how he advocated the hegemonic control of the landed elites over society contrary to that of the Reformers and inquires into the debates concerning the Nationalist agenda of preventing women and non-Brahmins from gaining access to education. Tilak’s was a patriarchal and orthodox position, that ideated that teaching Hindu women to read and write would ruin their traditional virtues making them immoral and subordinate. Criticism of the caste system and allowing education to women and non-Brahmins, were according to Tilak, ‘un-national tendencies’ and ‘against the Hindu nation’. The author also addresses the origin of the concept of ‘Hindutva’ and locates it not in the conflict of interest between the Hindus and Muslims, or the Hindus and the British, but in the discarding of religious neutrality and the enforcement of caste restrictions. In this context, the author presents the ideology of Hindutva as one further away from the concept of Hinduism, a rigorous representation of the ‘Muslim other’ and traces in it the consequent rise of communalism. In refuting the value premises of viewing an individual independent of caste identity, this book also sheds light on Tilak’s constant ridicule of the Reformers’ emphasis on the Bhakti tradition as a source of spiritual guidance. It introduces the reader to the vehement Nationalist critique of Vedic revivalism, i.e., the advocation of the Vedic religion and a Vedic way of life, which included Vedic rituals, relaxation of rigid caste restrictions and improvement in the condition of women by adopting post-puberty marriage, widow marriage and the education of girls that attempted to incorporate the lower caste groups into its fold—shattering the social and economic hegemony of the Brahmins. This meticulous piece of scholarship is a crucial insight into Tilak’s role in India’s struggle for independence and questions the basis of his status as an uncompromising champion of the freedom movement and his being projected as the greatest Maharashtrian. In trying to read history from an entirely new perspective, this book will be useful to students and scholars of modern Indian history, education, political science and gender studies.

New Perspectives in the History of Indian Education
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8125051252; Hardcover; New; New; 
New Perspectives in the History of Indian Education brings together essays on the milestones in the development of modern education in India since the mid-nineteenth century. It offers readings on a wide range of interconnected themes and the debates which have shaped the contours of the educational policy of contemporary India. The essays critique the existing anti-imperialist, postmodern and nationalist historiographies of Indian education, and bring forth the shortcomings of these approaches. Basing themselves on archival sources, they overturn the existing myths created by these historiographies and shed new light on the role of the colonial state, missionaries and Indian nationalist leaders. The empirically rich essays focus on the initiatives to promote education among the socially and educationally backward Dalit communities and the status of Dalit institutions. The authors argue forcefully about the centrality of education in fostering social mobility and change. The essays on women’s education discuss how intensely controversial it was to educate girls, and how women struggled to establish their identity and make their voices heard in a traditional society undergoing a transition to modernity. The essays also critically examine the colonial state policy and the attitude of nationalist leaders towards the introduction of mass and compulsory education.Printed Pages: 650. 101829

Literature and Social Change
Kalpaz Publications/Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789351280880; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Dalit Discourse, in India have occupied significant place in the discipline of literature as well as in the discourse of social sciences. Like any other socially active discourse, this is also dynamic and keeps engaging with newer ideas and themes. The literary expression of political consciousness, and movements among or for the Dalits across India is the new emerging trend. This trend has served enormously to the cause and widened its constituency. The present book explores relationship between politics and literature with a critical analysis of texts from the Hindi literature both by Dalits and non- Dalits. It underlines not only the major issues and concerns of the literature, but also to demonstrate that political consciousness is also expressed through many more innovative and creative methods like art and literature. This book also claims to be a provocative and thoughtful account of the debates among Dalit writers on how Dalit literature should be approached.Printed Pages: 232. 106169

Pedagogy for Religion: Missionary Education and the Fashioning of Hindus and Muslims in Bengal
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8125045058; Hardcover; New; New; 
Offering a new approach to the study of religion and empire, this innovative book challenges a widespread myth of modernity—that Western rule has had a secularizing effect on the non-West. Sengupta reveals instead the paradox that the pursuit and adaptation of modern vernacular education, mainly imported to the colonies by Protestant missionaries, opened up new ways for Indians to reformulate ideas of community along religious lines. Debates over the mundane aspects of schooling, rather than debates between religious leaders, transformed the everyday definitions of what it meant to be a Christian, Hindu, or Muslim.Thus instruction in science also became a means to instruct the Indian child about the primacy of reason and rationality over superstition. Modern education, Pedagogy for Religion argues, did not secularize religious traditions in India as much as it reformulated definitions of religion and religious community as a part of a larger global process.Printed Pages: 224. 101831

No Guns at My Son's Funeral
Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 2005; 8186939172; First Edition; Paperback; New; 7.75 x 5.25 Inches 
Aftab, a young Kashmiri boy, leads a double life. By day, he is a normal, bubbly teenager whose prime concerns are cricket, family and friends. The night holds the secrets of the life of a child, one who sneaks away to confabulate with Akram and his fledgling group of tearaway terrorists. Akram, so handsome, so exciting. But what Aftab doesn’t realize, so dangerous. Aftab is in complete awe of Akram and is willing to follow him to the ends of the earth. And Akram is more than willing to send him there. A complelling story of a child born into unrest. Though set against the militancy in Kashmir, this novel could belong anywhere in today’s world where violence is just a breath away. A brave story, never told in so raw a form, this is ‘reality fiction’ at its most real. A book for teenagers-and for adults of all ages- who live in a world where ‘cops and robbers’ is not fun anymore, but a deadly game. Printed Pages: 173. 009959

Pure Sequence: A Story of growing old gracefully or otherwise
IndiaInk/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8186939563; Softcover; New; 
Pure Sequence is not a beginning, middle and end kind of novel, but rather a story of women in their twilight years; aglow with their past, learning to cherish their present and not worrying too much about the future. It is about the realities that confront us all, sooner or later. Those who leave their parents to lead their own lives; those whose own children are flying out of the nest; those who are forced into believing that their life is done behind them; to those who admire the strength and fortitude of their grandmothers. Pure Sequence is about the quiet confidence of women growing old gracefully or otherwise, realizing that they are in yet another prime of their lives. Printed Pages: 168. 108489

After Umer's father leaves to join the jihadis, the family is pushed to the brink of poverty and desperation, but his mother will have nothing to do with her husband. The government and charities working in Kashmir, in their better wisdom, believe it is best not to offer sustenance to the children and windows of militants. Isolated by society and trapped in adversity, will the mother's determination to turn her back on violence crumble? Will Umer go his father's way? What choices will this family make? Weed, a follow-up of the award winning No Guns at My Son's Funeral, is a hard-hitting exploration of uneasy questions that keep raising their insistent heads in the 'war against terror'. Complex issues are examined through the innocence of a child caught in a web he never spun. Printed Pages: 142. 108504

India's Captains: From Nayadu to Ganguly
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0143031678; First Edition; Paperback; New; New; 13 Cms x 20 Cms 
The captain of the Indian cricket team has to be a man of a different breed. Cricket evokes such tremendous passion among its followers in India that every action of the cricket team, particularly of its captain, is assessed under a microscope, and public reaction can swing from the highest praise to the harshest and often personal criticism. The position evokes respect, admiration and even a certain awe, just as it is also a hotbed of intrigues, jealousies and rivalries, often having nothing to do with the game itself. India's Captains is a comprehensive account of the various aspects of cricket captaincy in India. It discusses the individual roles played by each captain—from C.K. Nayudu in 1932 to Rahul Dravid in 2004—and the unique strategies employed by them, even as it takes the reader into the world of behind-the-scenes wheeling and dealing often involved in the selection of the captain. In the process, it offers insights into the peculiar circumstances leading to the appointment of four captains in a single series in 1958_59, the controversy surrounding Krishnamachari Srikkanth's dismissal even after the team he led to Pakistan in 1989 performed so well, and the reasons for Vijay Merchant never leading the country in an official Test and M.A.K. Pataudi becoming the youngest ever Test captain at twenty-one. It also analyses how the mantle of captaincy can affect the on-field performance of even the best batsman in the world, Sachin Tendulkar, and what it takes to be Sourav Ganguly, India's most successful captain. Interesting and often provocative, this is a book all followers of the game will enjoy reading. Printed Pages: 288. 003262

Alexander the Great's Art of Strategy: Lessons from the Great Empire Builder
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2004; 014303197X; First Edition; Paperback; New; New; 13 Cms x 20 Cms 
Alexander the Great (356-323 BC) was arguably the greatest military strategist, tactician and ruler in world history. At the age of 20, he ascended to the throne of his father’s kingdom. By the age of 23 he had defeated Persia, his nation’s greatest enemy. And by the time of his death, aged 33, his armies had conquered virtually the entire known world, from the shores of the Mediterranean to the foothills of India, including the lands of modern-day Iraq and Afghanistan. Alexander’s achievements have inspired and influenced a great number of past and current military, political and business leaders. This book provides the wisdom and secrets of this great empire builder, demonstrating how they can be applied to conquer today’s challenges. Blending insights from his years of business experience with his lifelong study of Alexander, Partha Bose interweaves a gripping biography with compelling analyses of strategies, tactics and leadership approaches of successful institutions—including Dell, GE, Honda, IKEA, the Harvard Law School and the East India Company—and individuals, such as Elizabeth I, Winston Churchill, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Bernard Montgomery, Gandhi, Jack Welch and Lou Gerstner. This is a provocative and invaluable book for leaders, and readers, in all fields, everywhere. Printed Pages: 320. 022880

The Black Hole of Empire: History of a Global Practice of Power
Orient BlackSwan/Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8178243733; Softcover; New; 
The Black Hole of Empire follows the ever-changing representations of this historical event and founding myth of the British Empire in India, from the eighteenth century to the present. Partha Chatterjee explores how a supposed tragedy paved the ideological foundations for the “civilizing” force of British imperial rule and territorial control in India. Chatterjee takes a close look at the justifications of modern empire by liberal thinkers, international lawyers, and conservative traditionalists, and examines the intellectual and political responses of the colonized, including those of Bengali nationalists. The two sides of empire''s entwined history are brought together in the story of the Black Hole memorial: set up in Calcutta in 1760, demolished in 1821, restored by Lord Curzon in 1902, and removed in 1940 to a neglected churchyard. Challenging conventional truisms of imperial history, nationalist scholarship, and liberal visions of globalization, Chatterjee argues that empire is a necessary and continuing part of the history of the modern state.Printed Pages: 440. 101958

Subaltern Studies XI: Community, Gender and Violence
Orient BlackSwan/Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2003; 8178240335; Softcover; New; 
In its early phase, Subaltern Studies dealt extensively with community and violence in the context of peasant uprisings. Once the problem of peasant involvement in the modern politics of the nation had been posed, complexities in that relationship began to emerge. A new dimension was introduced when the relationship between community, gender and national politics came to be taken seriously. The present volume confronts the whole range of new issues raised by the relations between community, gender and the politics of violence.Printed Pages: 360. 101972

The Selected Papers of Partha Dasgupta brings together the works of one of the most distinguished economists working today. Professor Dasgupta was Knighted in 2002 for services to economics and his research interests have covered welfare and development economics, the economics of technological change, population, environmental and resource economics, the theory of games, and the economics of undernutrition. This two-volume collection represents a body of work spanning 40 years and contains a selection of Dasgupta's most original papers on six key themes. Both volumes feature foundational papers and substantial original introductions.

The author makes essential use of findings in anthropology, demography, ecology, geography, moral philosophy, and the environmental and nutritional sciences, but studies social phenomena through the lens of economics, to unravel the pathways by which scarce resources are produced, exchanged, and disseminated.

Originally published by the Clarendon Press in 1977, Much Maligned Monsters, one of the first comprehensive work dealing with the Western response to Indian art, is considered a classic on the subject. In this fascinating study interspersed with more than 120 visuals, eminent historian Partha Mitter traces the history of European reactions to Indian art, from the earliest encounters of explorers with the Exotic East to the more sophisticated but still incomplete appreciations of the early-twentieth century. This revised and updated edition includes an Introduction that reflects upon the profound changes in Western interpretations of non-Western societies over the past 35 years since the book was first published in 1977.

The Triumph of Modernism: India's Artists and the Avant-garde, 1922-1947
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0195693361; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 19 x 25 Cm 
This richly illustrated book explores the contested history of art and nationalism in the tumultuous last decades of British rule in India. Western avant-garde art inspired a powerful weapon of resistance among India’s artists in their struggle against colonial repression, and it is this complex interplay of Western modernism and Indian nationalism that forms the core of this book. The Triumph of Modernism takes the surprisingly unremarked Bauhaus exhibition held in Calcutta in 1922 as marking the arrival of European modernism in India. Partha Mitter examines the decline of ‘oriental art’ and the rise of naturalism as well as that of modernism in the 1920s, and the relationship between primitivism and modernism in Indian art: with Mahatma Gandhi inspiring the Indian elite to discover the peasant, the people of the soil began to be portrayed by artists as ‘innocent children of nature’. A distinct feminine voice also evolved through the rise of female artists. Finally, the author probes the ambivalent relationship between Indian nationalism and Imperial patronage of the arts. With a fascinating array of art works, the book throws much light on a previously neglected strand of modern art, and challenges the dominance of Western modernism. Readership.

The G20 Macroeconomic Agenda: India and the Emerging Economies
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2014; 110705110X; Hardcover; New; New; 
As the premier forum for global economic governance G20 was successful in warding off the global economic crisis of 2008–09 and preventing it from becoming a full-blown depression. In its wake G20 initiated a series of financial sector reforms and managed to achieve unprecedented global cooperation by bringing together the G7 and newly emerging economies for improved global macroeconomic management. As the global economy recovered in 2010 G20 expanded to include a development agenda in particular achieving food security controlling commodity price volatility recycling global savings to boost infrastructure investment and enhancing energy and environmental sustainability. Despite the emergence of BRICS there is no scholarly compendium on emerging economy concerns and perspectives set in the context of G20 reform initiatives and impasses. This book assesses the progress of the G20 with a focus on India. It discusses the role India has played in the success of the G20 process and more importantly delineates the possible barriers to India’s enhanced involvement in the G20 and in global governance in general. As the global economy remains mired in uncertainties ? stemming from the Euro crisis lacklustre economic performance in the United States and slowing of major emerging economies ? this volume fills the need for a collection of analytical research papers from the perspective of emerging economies and takes stock of the performance of the G20 thus far.

Indian Tax Administration: A Dialogue
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8125051805; Hardcover; New; New; 
Born out of a first-of-its-kind series of discussions between tax officials and practitioners, Indian Tax Administration: A Dialogue identifies and addresses challenges facing India as it contemplates tax reforms. Both, the dialogue and A Dialogue, have been organised by eminent tax policy analyst Parthasarathi Shome whose recommendations on tax administration policy have been included not only in India’s Ninth and Tenth Five-Year Plans, but also in more than thirty countries where he has given technical assistance in taxation. This volume gives detailed analyses of the organisational structure, risk assessment and management in audit selection, dispute resolution and computerisation of both Direct and Indirect tax administrations. An investigation into the newly-established Large Taxpayer Units and a statistical study of the effectiveness of Value-Added Taxes of state administrations render it a broader appeal. Presenting successful models from across the globe, A Dialogue composes a veritable picture of tax reform for India to keenly consider.Printed Pages: 348. 101812

Ebrahim Alkazi: Directing Art
Mapin Publishing; New Delhi, India; 2016; 9789385360107; Hardcover; New; New; 
A doyen of India’s art and theatre scenes, Ebrahim Alkazi has been credited with garnering worldwide visibility for Indian art. Directing Art explores how his unique way of locating Indian art within a broader framework led to several formal engagements for artists such as MF Husain, FN Souza, SH Raza, Gieve Patel, and Anish Kapoor, among others. This volume brings together over 400 paintings, many of them exhibited at Art Heritage, and previously unpublished, thereby tracing Alkazi’s landmark exhibitions of European modern art in 1954, a result of his and his wife Roshen’s passionate engagement with contemporary artistic production. Featuring several conversations and essays, Directing Art provides a context for the Alkazis’ participation in the evolution of a transnational history of modernism, and their long association with the Progressive Artists Group. Also included is an intimate portrayal by Amal Allana, Alkazi’s daughter, who talks of her father’s passion for art and theatre, his revolutionary multi-disciplinary paradigm, and the bohemian world of Mumbai’s post-colonial art scene.A chronicle of the remarkable life and work of Ebrahim Alkazi, Directing Art is an invaluable education in Indian art.

The Torana in Indian and Southeast Asian Architecture
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8124605343; First Edition; Hardcover with a Slipcase; New; New; 23 x 29 Cm 
The present work discusses in depth the subject of toranas (arched portals or festoons) in the ancient and medieval architecture of South- and South-east Asia, with special emphasis on Indian representations. Their antiquity and rationale; their continued presence in association with stupas, caves, temples, mosques, cities, forts, and palaces; their myriad forms and transformations; and their aesthetic and symbolic relationship to the structure in question are analyzed stage-by-stage in this book. The rich corpus of toranas included here has been critically and comparatively analyzed in relation to traditional practice, as well as in the light of the medieval architectural treatises, historical records, and other literary sources. The approach is ‘micro’ in the sense of being focused on a specific architectural element but ‘macro’ in its regional and temporal span. In addition, the exposition reveals the grammar as well as the manifold visual formulations of the torana as representative of the basic principles of traditional Indian architectural ornament: integral to the structure, functionally apt, aesthetically significant, and visually evocative, with sound and sophisticated design principles. The text is richly illustrated, bringing together material scattered over several well-known as well as remote sites, museums, and archival collections. Whereas a major part of this book details the journey of the torana in ancient and medieval India, the section on early beginnings also includes references from Pakistan and Afghanistan, and the final chapter surveys, with a view to compare, parallel yet distinct expressions in Cambodia, Thailand, Champa, Indonesia, Myanmar, Nepal, and Sri Lanka.

Tracing an Indian Diaspora: Contexts, Memories, Representations
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8178298333; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The concept of diaspora has been much debated during the past decade in terms of the essential and additional features that go with it, arguing which groups or communities could beuld not be designated as diaspora. The Indian diaspora today, with a strong community constituting more than 20 million and spreading across a hundred countries, continues to grow in size and making its transnational presence felt. This collection of essays traces some of the plurality with the Indian context as well as in the context of globalization, and transnationalism. The book discusses the migratory movements that have led to the formation of the Indian diaspora and formation to diasporic practices-the ways and means of remembering and enacting diasporic belonging and the sites and spaces where such narratives of belonging are performed and how these issues are played out through texts, and rituals such as pilgrimages and building temples.
