24202 Paulius Normantas
Bhutan: The Dragon Kingdom of Prayer
Timeless Books/TBI; New Delhi, India; Paulius Normant; Hardcover; New; New; 
The faraway country of Bhutan is also known as the Land of the Thunder Dragon. This small Himalayan Kingdom is, in the eyes of many, the embodiment of the last Shangri-La, a final refuge for the mystical wisdom of Buddhism and a paragon of spiritual happiness. The origin of the name of Bhutan is contentious even today. It might be that its name derives from the Sanskrit word bhu-uttan meaning high lands.The Bhutanese, however, call their country Druk Yul, The Land of the Thunder Dragon and themselves - drukpa. The national faith is a branch of the Tantric form of Mahayana Buddhism - Drukpa Kagyu. If we were to review the history of Bhutan, we would discover this country to be a land of legends. The name Druk Yul is related to legend. At the end of the 12th century, a prominent lama was in the act of sanctifying a monastery in Middle Tibet when a crack of thunder was heard. Thunder was, according to folk belief, the voice of a dragon (druk). The lama, bearing this in mind, named the monastery Druk and the teaching he founded was thus named Drukpa.

Catalogue of Portuguese Folktales (Folklore Fellows Communications 291)
Suomalainen Tiedeakatemia (Academia Scientiarum Fennica)/Bookstore Tiedekirja; Helsinki, Finland; 2006; 9514109996; Hardcover; New; New; 
IN THE OLD AARNE/THOMPSON, Portugal was virtually non-existent, appearing in the bibliography of just three folktales. In 2003, the author of The Types of International Folktales (FFC 284–6) stretched his hand to the first manuscript of the Catalogue of Portuguese Folktales and included them in 700 types of his own manuscript. The Catalogue of Portuguese Folktales is now the first regional index that takes into account the classifications of the new “ATU”. But it displays its difference by electing its own affinities with old “AaTh” numbers, with regional catalogues, or even by offering new numbers. We can see a new face of the European folktale emerging, with a strong Mediterranean flavour. Printed Pages: 406. 113829

24215 Pavan K. Varma
The Great Indian Middle Class (Updated with a New introduction)
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0143103253; First Edition; Paperback; New; 13 Cms x 20 Cms 
In this powerful and insightful critique, the author examines the evolution of the Indian middle class during the twentieth century, especially since Independence. He shows us how the middle class, guided by self-interest, is becoming increasingly insensitive to the plight of the underprivileged, and how economic liberalization has only heightened its tendency to withdraw from anything that does not relate directly to its material well-being. An essential read, this fresh edition updated with a new introduction analyses the transformation of the middle class in the decade since 1997 and seeks to reconcile the seemingly dichotomous aspects of our economy and polity.

24216 Pavan K. Varma
Being Indian: The Truth About Why the 21st Century Will be India's
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 0143033425; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
This book is a new and dramatically different inquiry into what India and being Indian mean in the new millennium. Such an inquiry is especially relevant today when the world's largest democracy is also a nuclear power, a potentially major economic power poised to emerge as the second largest consumer market in the world, and a growing force in information technology. Misconceptions about India and Indians abound, fed by the stereotypes created by foreigners, and the myths about themselves projected by Indians. In Being Indian, Pavan K.Varma demolishes these myths and generalizations as he turns his sharply observant gaze on his fellow countrymen to examine what really makes Indians tick and what they have to offer the world in the 21st century. Varma's insightful analysis of the Indian personality and the culture that has created it reaches startling new conclusions on the paradoxes and contradictions that characterize Indian attitudes towards issues such as power, wealth and spirituality. How, for example, does the appalling indifference of most Indians to the suffering of the poor and the inequities of the caste system square with their enthusiastic championing of parliamentary democracy? And why do Indians have a reputation for being spiritual and `other-worldly' when their philosophy and tradition exalt the pursuit of material well-being —artha—as a principal goal of life? The book also examines India's future prospects as an economic, military and technological power, providing valuable pointers to the likely destiny of a nation of one billion people. Drawing on sources as diverse as ancient Sanskrit treatises and Bollywood lyrics, and illuminating his examples with a wealth of telling anecdotes, Pavan Varma creates a vivid and compelling portrait of Indians as he argues that they will survive and flourish in the new millennium precisely because of what they are, warts and all, and not because of what they think they are or would like to be. This book, which will stimulate reflection, discussion and controversy, is a must read for both foreigners who wish to understand Indians and Indians who wish to understand themselves.

24217 Pavan K. Varma
Kama Sutra: The art of making love to a woman
Lustre Press/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 817436448X; Hardcover; New; New; 
A good lover has to be sensitive to a woman's needs.'Pavan K. Varma's new-age adaptation of Vatsyayana's cult classic Kama Sutra makes precisely this point. Keeping in mind the celebrated sage's instruction that men and women are equal partners in the act of consummation, Varma takes us on a witty journey through what has sometimes been seen as a 'heavy'manual on sex, and at others as a volume of titillating visuals. This adaptation is a serious tribute to the genius and vision of Vatsyayana, highlighting the 'modernity'of what he wrote two thousand years ago - that the fulfillment of women is at the heart of the experience of sex, and that the lines between sex and sensuality, and between social mores and individual desire are indeed fine and must be understood deeply.

The Mind and the Invisible Quest
MD Publications/Prints Publications; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8175331275; Hardcover; New; New; 
Human is the most wonderful and advanced creation of God, who has been given superpower in the form of "Mind" with enormous hidden power with capability of governing this whole world, calmly and peacefully even in stressful moments. As contentment is necessary for happiness, but whether a financially sound person is satisfied or not? Is such person happy? Is such person contended? Such questions suddenly come in our mind and we become very busy and serious to get the solution of such doubtful questions using our intellect and spiritual planes of "Brain". Thus "The Mind and The Invisible Quest" is the journey through different levels of minds, intellect and spiritual planes which explains the significance with strength and weakness of each plane. Very briefly author has touched upon spiritual level which he says is the highest state of mind. Any person viewing the world from different state such as mind, intellect or spiritual level will have a very different view with a very different understanding as well. As all the scientific inventions start from hypothesis from some element of philosophy. The Mind and the Invisible Quest similarly generates certain hypothesis on the "behaviour of mind" with simple mathematic models that keep working in the evaluation process. The subject can also help in generating some awareness and help in bringing harmony in life. This book is useful for philosophers, researchers, students and common person who have an everlasting quest. Printed Pages: 168. 117625

Lucknow: Buildings, Begums and The British
Kalpaz Publications/Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789351281399; Hardcover; New; New; 
Lucknow: Buildings, Begums and The British is not about history; rather it is a book on heritage – defined as the legacy of physical artefacts and intangible attributes inherited from past generations. As a city , Lucknow has witnessed many upheavals during the last three centuries; from being the seat of Nawabi pomp and show to the imperiousness of Colonial rule. From being described as the Constantinople of the East to being decimated, demolished and “fairly improved off the face of this earth”. Although some aspects of Lucknow , especially few errant Nawabs and the siege of the Residency during 1857 are well known, the author has tried to focus on lesser-known aspects of the city, embellishing the text with interesting vignettes and tit-bits of information, accompanied by vintage images – in an attempt to present a holistic picture of the city , from its turbulent past, to whatever remains during its present times. The book, Lucknow: Buildings, Begums and The British by Dr PC Sarkar , showcases the heritage of the city in a nutshell, making it easy for those fascinated by the history and architecture of Lucknow . He focuses on some lesser known monuments and aspects of the city , including roles played by some influential women (read Begums) of the time and the British. The illustrations help the reader to understand and appreciate the monuments that the writer so passionately talks about. About The Author:- PC Sarkar holds a Ph.D in organic chemistry and is presently working as a scientist in the Indian Council of Agricultural Research, Govt. of India. He completed his schooling from St. Francis' College, Lucknow , followed by college education from Lucknow Christian College and Lucknow University . He imbibed a passion for the Nawabi and Colonial heritage of Lucknow during his childhood. He continued his love for the city, even though the call for a livelihood took him far from his roots, at a relatively young age. In addition to a specialized book on chemistry and several research publications in national and international journals pertaining to his profession.Printed Pages: 220. 106140

Religious Division and Social Conflict: The Emergence of Hindu Nationalism in Rural India
Social Science Press and Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8187358513; First Paperback Edition; Paperback; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
Religious Division and Social Conflict: The Emergence of Hindu Nationalism in Rural India is an ethnographic account of the emergence of Hindu nationalism in a tribal (adivasi) community in Chhattisgarh, central India. It is argued that the successful spread of Hindu nationalism in this area is due to the involvement of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), a militant Hindu nationalist organization, in local affairs. While active engagement in 'civilizing' strategies has enabled the RSS to legitimize its presence and endear itself to the local community, the book argues that participation in more aggressive strategies has made it possible for this organization to fuel and attach local tensions to a broader Hindu nationalist agenda. The book further argues that while the RSS is the active agent in this process, its specific impact is a function of its relation of opposition to the Church. The influence of the latter, which was well established in the area, has recently been challenged by the RSS. In order to protect and strengthen their respective positions of dominance, both institutions have been instrumental in dividing the local population. This division has often been expressed in conflict over land, healthcare and political leadership. The book engages with themes such as religion, land relations, liquor disputes, health care, and political leadership. Printed pages: 316. 030725

Huumorin Skaalat: Esitys, tyyli ja tarkoitus
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2015; 9522226122; New; 
Huumori on epäjohdonmukaista: toisinaan ihmisiä huvittavat sellaisetkin asiat, joissa ei ole mitään vitsiä. Huumorissa ja komiikassa on samanaikaisesti läsnä monta ristiriitaista elementtiä, jotka eivät ole yksiselitteisesti määriteltävissä. Tämä teos on ajantasainen kartoitus siitä, mitä huumorilla ja koomisilla esityksillä voidaan viestiä, mitä niiden piiriin kuuluu ja mitä ei, miten niiden vapautta vartioidaan ja koetellaan.

Theoretical Milestones: Selected writings of Lauri Honko (Folklore Fellows Communications 304)
Suomalainen Tiedeakatemia (Academia Scientiarum Fennica)/Bookstore Tiedekirja; Helsinki, Finland; 2013; 9514110900; New; 
Lauri Honko (1932–2002) was among the leading folklorists of his time. In particular, he developed theories and concepts relating to folk belief, genre and epic. The present collection represents a selection of Honko’s key articles, which he considered worthy of republication himself. They relate to Honko’s own research, to the debates and discussions he took part in; some are introductions to article collections produced by groups of researchers.Honko’s writings combine a typically strong empiricism with clear theoretical thought. His own theoretical framework was above all one of functionalism, within which he united other currents within folkloristics, such as ‘composition in performance’, ‘ecology of tradition’ and ‘textualisation’. He was occupied by the question of how the individual performer used folklore, be he a teller of proverbs or jokes, a singer of oral poetry or a producer of written epic.Honko was at no stage a representative of the traditional ‘Finnish school’ of folklore research, and origins and developments were a research challenge to him particularly from the perspective of how folklore adapts in different ways to its setting and circumstances of performance by means of variation, and how regularity may be discerned within this.Pekka Hakamies is professor of folkloristics at the University of Turku, and has investigated Lauri Honko’s development of folkloristics theory. Anneli Honko, Lauri Honko’s spouse, was his assistant and research companion, particularly in his research into epic traditions. Printed Pages: 338. 113811

Suomettarelainen Maalaisliitossa
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 1999; 9517101074; New; 
Ennen viime sotiamme Jalo Lahdensuo oli tunnettu kautta maan: hän oli maalaisliittolainen kansanedustaja, moninkertainen ministeri, politiikan raskassarjalainen, muilutusyrityksen uhri ja syrjäytetty maaherra. Lahdensuon elämänkaaren huippuhetket osuivat Suomen itsenäisyystaistelun ja Mäntsälän kapinan väliselle ajanjaksolle. Mannerheimin neuvottelukunnan puheenjohtajana hän osallistui vapaussodan dramaattisiin vaiheisiin. Maanpuolustuspoliitikkona ja Sunilan hallitusten puolustusministerinä hän vaati suojeluskuntien ja armeijan saattamista demokraattisen kontrollin alaisiksi. Mäntsälän kapinaviikolla hän kannatti kovia otteita, kuului presidentin esikuntaan ja taisteli Svinhufvudin ja Sihvon rinnalla laillisuuden puolesta. Kannastaan hän joutui maksamaan henkilökohtaisilla vastoinkäymisillään. Printed Pages: 411. 115788

Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2004; 9514275632; New; 
Työssä tutkitaan Pohjois-Suomen suurten matkailukeskusten – Levin, Rukan, Saariselän ja Ylläksen – kehitysprosessia ja roolia aluekehityksessä paikallistasolla, sijaintikunnissa, väestön ja talouden muutoksilla. Kehitysprosessin edetessä matkailukeskusten väestömäärä, työllisen työvoiman määrä, yritystoimipaikat ja työpaikat ovat lisääntyneet. Määrällisten piirteiden ohella väestön ikä- ja sukupuolirakenne ovat tasapainossa ja yritysrakenne on monipuolistunut. Matkailukeskukset muistuttavat väestön ja talouden ominaispiirteiltään kasvukeskuksia – niitä voidaan pitää eräänlaisina ytiminä maaseudulla. Printed Pages: 260. 115245

Teos tarkastelee erilaisten perusoikeuksien ja perustavaa laatua olevien oikeuksien vaikutusta kirkkoon ja sen hallintoon. Kirkon juridisen olemuksen käsittäminen merkitsee kirkkoa koskevien yhteiskunnallisten ja ylikansallisten oikeudellisten normien tuntemisen lisäksi sen tiedostamista, että kirkon olemukseen kuuluu sen ylipositiivinen arvopohja, joka asettaa vaatimuksia myös kirkon positiiviselle oikeudelle. Oikeuden käsittämisen muuttuminen yhteiskunnassa vaikuttaa myös kirkon oikeuteen. Printed Pages: 369. 114625

Jumalan Kannattelu
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2008; 9529791704; New; 
Suomen Lähetysseuran Kiinan lähetystyötä 1920-luvulla kohdannut kriisi uhkasi Kiinassa olleiden lähettien turvallisuutta, lähetystyön edistymistä ja lähettien maailmankatsomusta. Lähetit turvautuivat kriisissä Jumalaan. He säilyttivät uskonsa omaan kutsumukseensa, lähetystyön etenemiseen ja Jumalan maailmanhallintaan. Lähetit kokivat, että Jumala kannatteli heitä. Runsas lähdeaineisto tarjoaa mahdollisuuden tutkia vahvasti kristillisten ihmisten ryhmää aidossa kriisitilanteessa. Aineistosta tehtyjen havaintojen ja kirjallisuuden kanssa käydyn keskustelun kautta tutkimus laajenee yhden tapausesimerkin käsittelystä yleisemmäksi kristinuskon ja kriisikäytöksen suhteen tutkimiseksi.

PoD-kirja Teoksessa tarkastellaan, minkälaisia vaatimuksia perusoikeusjärjestelmä asettaa sellaiselle oikeudelliselle sääntelylle ja päätöksenteolle, joka koskee yksilöiden talouteen ja varallisuuteen liittyviä kysymyksiä. Työssä perehdytään muun muassa siihen, miten perusoikeudet vaikuttavat julkisen vallan ja yksityishenkilöiden välisissä suhteissa, sekä mikä merkitys niillä on yksityisten toimijoiden keskinäisissä suhteissa. Teoksessa hahmotellaan, miten yhä yleisemmiksi käyviä perusoikeusongelmia tulee jäsentää yksilöiden varallisuusaseman kannalta merkityksellisissä ratkaisutilanteissa ja minkälaisiin näkökohtiin näitä asioita koskevassa harkinnassa tulee kiinnittää huomiota.

Kulkukauppiaista Kauppaneuvoksiin: Itäkarjalaisten liiketoimintaa Suomessa
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2016; 9522227374; New; 
Menneinä vuosina Suomen maaseudulla nähtiin usein laukkukauppiaita: pitkäpartaisia miehiä, jotka myivät kankaita ja pikkutavaraa kantamistaan laukuista tai hevostensa kuormista. Suurin osa heistä oli kotoisin Vienasta ja Aunuksesta Venäjän Karjalasta. Nämä miehet hallitsivat pitkään Suomessa harjoitettua kiertokauppaa. Heidän toimintansa oli pitkään laitonta, sillä kulkukauppa oli ulkomaalaisilta kiellettyä. Viranomaisten ja suomalaisten kilpailijoiden painostuksesta huolimatta toiminta jatkui, koska sille oli tarvetta ja se laajensi maaseudun tavaratarjontaa. Oman lukunsa muodosti myös toiminta aivan toisella alalla: vaatetusteollisuudessa, jonka tunnetuimpia saavutuksia olivat James-farmarit. Dosentti Pekka Nevalaisen Kulkukauppiaista kauppaneuvoksiin valottaa ensimmäistä kertaa itäkarjalaisten liiketoiminnan koko kirjoa. Printed Pages: 294. 115371

Mikä oli heidän kohtalonsa vallankumousten myrskyn puhjettua? Monet suomalaisista vaikuttivat bolševikkien riveissä, suuri osa kuitenkin pakeni tai muutti neuvostovaltiosta Suomeen nälän, sodan ja terrorin jaloista. Idästä virtasi suomalaisia vuosikausia monilla keinoilla, vuonna 1921 jopa Suomen valtion järjestämässä evakuoinnissa. Pitkin 1930-lukua Neuvostoliitosta ilmestyi myös sinne vastikään menneitä suomalaisia, jotka olivat neuvostotodellisuuteen karvaasti pettyneet. Printed Pages: 402. 115794

Tuloksena on pioneerityö, joka kertoo ruotsinsuomalaisen tanssimusiikin sukupolvia ylittävästä merkityksestä, muusikoiden soittomotiiveista ja ruotsinsuomalaisten itse tuottamista äänitteistä, joissa "hiki haisee ja haitari soi".

Kirjan ensimmäinen osa valottaa israelilaisen historiankirjoituksen kuvaa Salomosta. Osa Raamatun kirjoittajista tarkastelee Salomoa kansansa sortajana ja arvostelee kuningasta rivien välissä. Tämä selittää eräitä tekstin piirteitä, kuten Salomon rikkauden ja viisauden kuvausta. Kirjan toinen osa tarkastelee valikoimaa muinaisen Israelin ja sen naapurimaiden piirtokirjoituksia, jotka antavat kuvan kuningasajan historiallisten lähteiden luonteesta. Niillä on selviä yhteyksiä myös Vanhaan testementtiin. Printed Pages: 253. 117242

Mielikuva Israelin kuninkaan viisaudesta ja rikkaudesta perustuu Vanhan testamentin Salomo-historiaan 1 Kuninkaan kirjan luvuissa 3-11. Kyseisen Vanhan testamentin jakson mukaan Salomo sai viisauden lahjaksi Jumalalta, joka ilmestyi hänelle unessa. Vieraiden kansojen edustajat tulivat kuulemaan Salomon viisautta ja tuomaan hänelle lahjoja. nSärkiön tutkimuksen lähtökohtana on kysymys, miksi Vanha testamentti kuvaa Salomoa erityisen viisaana ja mahtavana. Tekijä on lähestynyt Vanhan testamentin Salomo-historiaa yleisin kirjallisuusdentutkimuksen menetelmin. Lisäksi hän on käyttänyt hyväkseen arkeologian ja epigrafiikan tutkimustuloksia. n n 117252

After the success of Learning from Mumbai (Mapin 2013) the authors of the ‘Learning from India Series’ continue their journey to unravel the lessons that can be learned from practising architecture and urban planning in the bustling capital city of India—New Delhi.With several essays and maps, Learning from Delhi lays the ground for a series of interviews with architects and planners who work in the city. Fresh talent finds a place in this volume alongside established institutions, and locating these explorations within a local framework are perspectives from scholars such as Pradip Krishen and Mohammed Shaheer. These Indian narratives on Delhi and its developmental life are balanced by the take of foreigners such as Joeri Aulman. A special place is reserved in this volume for the photo essays of Bas Losekoot.

Taking The Leap: Freeing Ourselves from Old Habits and Fears
Shambhala Publication/TBI; New Delhi, India; 1590308433; Softcover; New; 
Best-seller Pema Chödrön draws on the Buddhist concept of shenpa to help us see how certain habits of mind tend to “hook” us and get us stuck in states of anger, blame, self-hatred, and addiction. The good news is that once we start to recognize these patterns, they instantly begin to lose their hold on us and we can begin to change our lives for the better.“This path entails uncovering three basic human qualities,” explains Pema. “They are natural intelligence, natural warmth, and natural openness. Everyone, everywhere, all over the globe, has these qualities and can call on them to help themselves and others.”This book gives us the insights and practices we can immediately put to use in our lives to awaken these essential qualities. In her friendly and encouraging style, Pema Chödrön helps us take a bold leap toward a new way of living—one that will bring about positive transformation for ourselves and for our troubled world.

The Compassion Book: Teachings for Awakening the Heart
Shambhala Publication/TBI; New Delhi, India; 2017; 1611804205; Softcover; New; 
Let compassion and fearlessness guide you and you’ll live wisely and effectively in good times and bad. But that’s easier said than done. Here Pema Chödrön introduces a powerful, transformative method to nurture these qualities using a practice called lojong, which has been a primary focus of her teachings and personal practice for many years. And for centuries, Tibetan Buddhists have relied on these teachings to awaken the deep goodness that lies within us.The lojong teachings include fifty-nine pithy slogans for daily contemplation, such as “Always maintain only a joyful mind,” “Don’t be swayed by external circumstances,” “Don’t try to be the fastest,” and “Be grateful to everyone.” This book presents each of these slogans and includes Pema’s clear, succinct guidance on how to understand them—and how they can enrich our lives. It also features a forty-five minute downloadable audio program entitled “Opening the Heart,” in which Pema offers in-depth instruction on tonglen meditation, a powerful practice that anyone can undertake to awaken compassion for oneself and others.

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

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

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

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

Vanhan ja uuden Rajamaastossa
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2009; 9522221228; New; 
Teos tarjoaa ensimmäisen kerran eritellyn kuvan Johannes Gezelius nuoremman opintomatkasta Englantiin ja Saksaan (1670–74) ja siitä, millaisia virikkeitä tulevalla piispalla oli tuomisinaan. Alkavaan historialliseen raamatuntutkimukseen Gezelius tutustui varsinkin Pariisissa ja Strassburgissa. Historian tutkimuksen alkavaan kritiikkiin hän sai tuntumaa pariisilaiselta Jean de Launoylta, kotimaassa taas opettajaltaan Johannes Schefferukselta. Laasonen osoittaa tutkimuksessaan, millä tavalla Gezelius käytti tai ei käyttänyt näitä virikkeitä työssään, erityisesti suuressa raamatunselitysteoksessaan. Printed Pages: 292. 114576
