Disability and Society: A Reader
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8125036865; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
In the 1980’s disabled scholars in the West began to develop a radical critique of biomedical conceptions of disability that focused exclusively on the individual body and its limitations. They also exposed the failure of the social sciences to critically address what this medical understanding of disability meant, and what it excluded from consideration. Out of their work emerged what is generally called the ‘social model’ of disability. Over the past twenty years this perspective has generated a substantial literature, much of it making use of the methods of qualitative social research. Narratives and life histories produced by disabled people themselves have a central place in the Disability Studies literature. This work has major implications for professionals in the rehabilitation field, for the social sciences, and the ultimate goal, for the full integration of disabled people into society. However almost all of if focuses on the traditions, practices and dilemmas of northern countries. In India, in Thailand and in most of Asia, the field of disability continues to be dominated by the biomedical model. Thus, ‘disability’ is understood as an incurable chronic illness and, increasingly, an object for medical diagnosis and investigation. Despite many positive developments, little convergence between disability politics and practice on the one hand, and sociology and anthropology on the other has taken place. Surveying the international literature on disability and rehabilitation, it becomes apparent that many studies carried out in Asian countries are designed to measure the extent of (unmet) need or the impact of services or attitudes to disabled people. Virtually no studies make use of the innovative, usually qualitative and often holistic approaches developed in Western countries over the past twenty years. This book introduces readers in Asian countries to the recent disability literature of the West. The editors hope that it will inspire new thinking among social scientist, rehabilitation professionals and organizations of disabled people themselves that could further the empowerment of people with disabilities.

Four Aleys: A Novel
Vitasta Publishing Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789382711537; Softcover; New; 
This is a book about four women—all named Aley. It is a story of obsessive love and familial loyalties set against a background of social upheaval. The women in the feudal, patriarchal, landowning family of Big House deal with their complicated lives as best as they can and Little Aley, the youngest of the four, tries to make sense of the lives of her hapless namesakes. She vows never to fall victim to the emotions which had tortured her mother, grandmother and beloved grandaunt and is determined to set a balance in the social system, that after a violent upheaval, now fumbles to constructively reinvent itself. Will she be able to achieve this? And will it give her contentment if she does? 107212

Empathy: Theory and Application in Psychotherapy
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 812460729X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 23 x 29 Cm 
Empathy is a term much used in popular culture and professional circles. Yet it remains one of the most misunderstood tropes. Most people confuse or conflate empathy with sympathy; though related, these involve somewhat radically different affective or psychological registers. Empathy is founded on the art of understanding a living being's particular mental state or inner condition, in respect of his/her predicament, pain, suffering, anguish, fear, grief, sorrow, frustration, and anger in certain trying circumstances. There can even be comportment with another's joy and exhilaration. Its proper use makes possible a much deeper understanding of human communication, relation, intentionality, and action. As such its cognate in the Eastern or contemplative practice of compassion (karuna, metta, kripa) toward another, and also to sorge or “care” in phenomenological hermeneutics. Thus, there are cognitive, affective and ethical components in the practice of empathy. The importance of empathy whether in everyday life or as a clinical tool in therapeutic and palliative settings cannot be more emphasized. The book demonstrates the way in which using empathy as a means of diagnosis leads to different, more successful results and course of action. In so doing, the study challenges the erstwhile neglect and misconception of the role of empathy in transference and introspective processes availed in psychoanalysis. The book introduces novices in the field to the rich literature of psychoanalysis and philosophy, combining conceptual phenomenology with empirical data collected in a clinical setting. Testing the theory against clinical cases, as the book engages with, lends itself to a more solid conceptualization that can be poignantly articulated and studied further. The book will benefit students and practitioners in counselling, social work, psychiatry, psychoanalysis, psychotherapy and philosophy.Printed Pages: 135. 100321

The Path of the Buddha: Writings on Contemporary Buddhism
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2004; 014303037X; First Edition; Paperback; New; New; 13 Cms x 20 Cms 
So compelling is the story of Prince Siddhartha Gautama that it loses none of its sheen with a retelling. Impelled by a desire to deal with the sorrows of human existence, he renounces the world when barely twenty-nine and finds Buddhism. Giving Buddha’s spiritual journey a contemporary dimension, this anthology contains essays by spiritual leaders like His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Lama Zopa Rinpoche and Lama Thubten Yeshe on the impact of Buddhist philosophy on them. Equally poignant are the accounts of others who, dissatisfied with the present world, embark on a search for salvation. Urged by a seemingly simple notion, Donna Brown starts her quest to find a really ‘good’ person; a journey which takes her from the heart of Canada to Nepal’s remote Kopan monastery. An inexplicable restlessness takes Robina Courtin from dabbling in drugs, political activism and martial arts to finding truth as a Buddhist nun. Though born into a Sikh family, Dharmakirti grows up in Sikkim amidst Buddhist monasteries, maroon-robed monks and monastic rituals, and eventually chooses the philosophy of Tibetan Buddhism over science. For Kabir Saxena, Buddhism offers a practical path in this broken, imperfect world. Varied and meaningful, The Path of the Buddha provides a rare glimpse into Buddhism. Printed Pages: 248. 002778

24517 Research and Information System for Developing Countries
World Trade Development Report 2007: Building a Development-Friendly World Trading System
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0195689682; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
The recent collapse of the Doha Round talks, especially after such failures as the Ministerial Conferences in Seattle (1999) and Cancun (2003), suggests that all is not well with the present system of multilateral trade negotiations. In particular, developing countries feel that these negotiations are occasions used by industrialized countries to extract trade concessions from them and shrink their development policy space. Although the Doha Round was launched as a Development Round, the emerging patterns in the negotiations suggest that development was just the rhetoric to get a mandate for the launch of negotiations. As a result there has been little progress on developmental issues. The emerging trends and asymmetries in the multilateral trading system and the growing discontent among poor countries do not bode well for its sustainability. Research and Information System for Developing Countries (RIS), argues in this report that as weaker partners the developing countries have a stake in the multilateral rule-based trading system. However, the processes of agenda-setting and rule-making are heavily dominated by developed countries. The challenge before developing countries therefore is to seek reforms to ensure that the system serves their needs better. The report proposes an agenda for building a more development-friendly and sustainable trading system. It offers recommendations from a development perspective for revitalizing the Doha Round of trade talks in key areas of agriculture, market access for industrial goods, services, trade facilitation, intellectual property rights, and dispute settlement rules among others. It further highlights the potential of strengthening South-South Cooperation for building a development-friendly trading system. 019710

Historical Archaeology of Vidarbha
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8173054215; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 22 x 28 Cm 
From the archaeological point of view Vidarbha, which lies in the extreme eastern part of Maharashtra, is distinct and rich as there are enough evidences of proto-historic human settlements dating back to the chalcolithic period around the first millennium BCE. Keeping this in view the present volume has attempted to showcase an archaeo-historical profile of the region, ranging from the 6th century BCE to the 5th-6th century CE. The book endeavours to understand the early iron age early historic developments that took place in the region of Vidarbha. The aim of this book is to illuminate the historical archaeology of the region bys studying the available archaeological numismatic epigraphic and literary data. An earnest effort has been made to provide an updated profile in the light of recent excavations and related works conducted there after. The book proposes for the first time the relationship between Asmaka Mahajanapada and early iron age culture iron Vidarbha. (jacket) Printed Pages: 224 with 72 figures & maps. 100142

Non-State Actors and Weapons of Mass Destruction: A Study of the Correlation

The probability of non-state actors acquiring and using weapons of mass destruction against vulnerable non-combatants have remained a worrisome threat since the turn of the century. It is just not enough to have heightened concerns about the threat of a probable CBRN attack by violent non-state actors. A sound policy would include concerted efforts to substantially dwell on an important question: What factors drive violent terrorist groups like the Al Qaida to seek the most fearsome weapons?Printed Pages: 20. 104350

Folk-Tales of Kashmir
Low Price Publications/D.K. Publishers Distributors Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8175363460; Hardcover; New; New; 
Folk-tale is a subject which requires the most dainty treatment and the careful analysis. Most folk-lorists find it as a source to analysis the practices, ideas and beliefs of the people of ancient and middle ages. In those days fables was popular as it was adopted as medium of instruction. It is believed that an apposite or well-told story would arouse attention where logical arguement or abstract reasoning would fail to produce the slightest effect. These fictitious narratives with their moral and religious applications had a very considerable influence upon the literature of those days.Some folk-lorists believe that several tales must be attributed to a mythological origin, but some others believe that many tales must be attributed to historical origin. However, whatsoever the nature of treating the folk-lores, India has abundance of popular folk-lores in its credit, among which the stature of Kashmir is unparallel. Perhaps, Kashmir has not been surpassed in fertility by any other country in the world. But, for centuries the great treasure of these fairy tales of Kashmir had remained unknown to the rest of the world due to its isolated position and difficulty of language.This book attempts to unveil the treasure of fairy-tales that was very popular among the natives of the country. As the author points out, many of the tales in this collection are purely Kashmiri in origin, while others are undoubtedly variants of popular tales current in India and other parts of the world, which have been adopted and modified to suit the language, style of thought and social usage of the country.Indeed, it's a book of rare-kind that will draw the attention of all readers of all age group.

Gods in Chains
Foundation Books; New Delhi, India; 8175962852; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The book hopes to highlight the conditions of captive elephants, as they are currently used and kept in India. Initially started as an informal documentation, Gods in Chains later expanded to become a ‘handbook of sorts’, for anyone wanting to know more of the reality behind the veil of glamour and majesty of the captive pachyderm, especially in temple rituals and festival processions. The often troubled and complex relationship with their only companion, the ‘mahout’, is also a story of pathos and heartbreak for a deeply social and community-minded animal. Key features * This book hopes to open a chapter in the process of devising and implementing better management and welfare practices for captive elephants. * It is an easy guide for students, policymakers, animal welfarists, beaurocrats and every individual who would like to make a difference in the lives of these great wild creatures, with whom humans have forged a deep and abiding relationship. * This book was commissioned by the Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation Centre (WRRC) and Compassion Unlimited Plus Action (CUPA) in an attempt to encapsulate the ‘living and training conditions of captive elephants’. It offers an insight into the inherent problems of the existing system. The WRRC is an Indian wildlife conservation group and CUPA is an animal welfare charity, both located in Bangalore, Karnataka. * The book has given various practical recommendations that need to be strictly implemented by all the agencies if this goal is to be achieved. The WRRC’s dream would be to assist the Government in the formation of an elephant sanctuary someday, where these magnificent animals could roam in protected areas set aside for them.

24558 Richard B. Eaton; Introduction By Jonathan David, Normal England, and John Keenan
Building Construction Drawing
Donhead Publishing Ltd; Dorset, UK; 2004; 1873394713; First Edition; Hard Cover; Brand New; 19 x 28 Cm 
First published in six parts in the period 1914 to 1921 this volume has now been reprinted to provide a useful sourcebook for architects and other conservation specialists working on traditional buildings. This was one of the first books to include specifications and working drawings of joinery details, drawn on a large scale, which complemented the earlier better known construction ‘pattern books ’ of the nineteenth and early twentieth century. The book covers a wide range of details, with particular emphasis on joinery, including windows, doors, staircases, panelling, picture and chair rails, and architraves but also covering brick and tile floors, chimney heads, yard gates, and an example of a roof for a small house. These will be of particular relevance to the maintenance of buildings constructed between 1900 and 1939.

The Bhakti Sect of Vallabhacarya
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1986; 81-215-0576-1; Second Edition; Cloth; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
One of the foremost leaders of the devotional revolution which swept through Hindu society in the 15th and 16th centuries was Vallabhacarya. In terms of religion, Vallabhacarya's main contribution was his demonstration of the way in which a human being can shed his or her limited, mortal ego in order to rediscover an eternal individual participation in an unlimited divine being. With regard to literature, some of the earliest prose writing in any form of Hindi was produced by Vallabhacarya's followers in the Caurasi Vaisnavan ki Varta, a collection of accounts of personal efforts to apply the teachings of Vallabhacarya to everyday life. The first part of the Bhakti Sect of Vallabhacarya deals with Vallabhacarya's life and with his establishment of an organisation for his followers, a philosophical system to explain his view of the world and a spiritual method for putting his teachings into practice. The second part of the book is made up of an English translation of the sections of the Caurasi Vaisnavan ki Varta describing the lives of four early disciples of Vallabhacarya, one of whom was the poet Suradasa.

This book is a study of whether setting up democratic local councils in four developing countries (Ghana, Cote d`Ivoire, Bangladesh and India) actually makes any difference to the popularity, responsiveness and effectiveness of local government and administration. The authors make an important contribution to current debates about `good governance` and whether decentralisation can provide better services for the mass of the population - the poor and the disadvantaged in rural areas. The book is comparative, and based on detailed local fieldwork and popular surveys. Contents 1. Introduction 2. India (Karnataka) 3. Bangladesh 4. Cote d`Ivoire 5. Ghana 6. Conclusions.

Sind Revisited is an account of Sind and is a unique work by the indefatigable Richard Burton. Having visited Sind more than once and with his keen observation, Richard Burton has provided much useful information about this very ancient land in his own inimitable style. The description of places and people inhabiting the "Young Egypt"-the nick name applied to Sind-the legends and myths, history, society and social mores, religious beliefs, politics and of course, the ruins which Sind abounds in, food habits, the Anglo-Indian army, railroads and several other subjects are narrated in the distinctive style of the author. His remarks on the character of the inhabitants and their peculiar traits as well as idiosyncrasies make interesting reading. The incidents recorded in the book are marked by wit and humor so very characteristics of Richard Burton, the versatile raconteur. Conveniently bound together, the two volumes of Sind Revisited should interest students of history as well as those who are fond of travelling in the past. Printed pages: 692. 022782

Sindh and the Races that Inhabit the Valley of the Indus: with notices of the topography and history of the Province
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1998; 8121508231; Reprint; Cloth; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
The present work is the culmination of Richard Burton's five-years stay in Sindh, where he had the opportunity to learn the manner and customs, the domestic details, and the religious opinions and language of the people among, and with whom, he lived. He found the previous descriptions of Sindh and its inhabitants of little use; they were either too popular in nature, or written with a view of imparting a superficial knowledge of the language. Richard Burton has narrated in this work long descriptions of the studies, religion and ceremonies peculiar to the race inhabiting Sindh, the first specimens of language, and notices of the literature ever printed, and also the first detailed account of native habits and customs, manner and ceremonies. This work would be useful to not only linguists, ethnographers, and historians but also general readers who are fond of travelling in the past. Printed Pages: 430 with 1 map. 029207

How Buddhism Began: The Conditioned Genesis of the Early Teachings
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8121508126; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 
This book takes a fresh look at the earliest Buddhist texts and offers various suggestions how the teachings in them had developed. Two themes predominate; firstly, it argues that we cannot understand the Buddha unless we understand that he was debating with other religious teachers, notably Brahmins. For example, he denied the existence of a "soul"; but what exactly was he denying? Another chapter suggests that the canonical story of the Buddha's encounter with a brigand who wore a garland of his victims' fingers probably reflects an encounter with a form of ecstatic religion. The other main theme concerns metaphor, allegory and literalism. By taking the words of the texts literally-despite the Buddha's warning not to-successive generations of his disciples created distinctions and developed doctrines far beyond his original intention. One chapter shows how this led to a scholastic categorisation of meditation. Failure to understand a basic metaphor also gave rise to the later argument between the Mahayana and the older tradition. Perhaps most important of all, a combination of literalism with ignorance of the Buddha's allusions to Brahmanism led Buddhists to forget that the Buddha had preached that love, like Christian charity, could itself be directly salvific.

Buddhist Precept and Practice: Traditional Buddhism in the Rural Highlands of Ceylon
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8120807804; Hardcover; New; New; 
When this book was first published in 1971, under the title Buddhist Precept and Practice, The Times Literary Supplement Wrote: “This is an epoch-making piece of research which must mark a change in direction and appreciation if it is taken seriously and studied in details. Dr. Gombrich is concerned with religious change in belief and practice, not only in modern times but over the two and a half millennia during which Buddhism has flourished. He concludes that Sinhalese Buddhism has been remarkably conservative and rejects the assumption that it degenerated from an original high standard, by questioning whether it ever was as pure as a superficial reading of classical texts might suggest. It would be very difficult to provide a combination of scholarship and sympathy such as that which pervades Dr. Gombrich’s book and makes it a landmark in the study of religion. “Out of print for many years, the book is now republished corrected but substantially unchanged.Printed Pages: 442. 102349

The Writings of Richard Falk: Towards Humane Global Governance
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8125043071; Hardcover; New; New; 
This volume brings together 20 of Falk’s landmark essays, each resonating with his commitment towards establishing what he calls a system of humane global governance. Divided into five sections, these essays cover a variety of issues: the major challenges before international legal scholarship today, the failure of the United Nations to take the discourse of global democracy and global justice forward, the need to reform the UN, the international community’s focus on protection and sustainability and the neglect of justice, and the untapped potential of international human rights law to achieve global justice. The way forward, Falk emphasizes, is to establish, through global social movements, democratic global political structures in the new millennium. The Foreword by B. S. Chimni is a fitting tribute from a well known scholar of international law. He writes, ‘Falk is an embodiment of a critical intellectual who has never hesitated to speak truth to power.’ Published for the first time in India, The Writings of Richard Falk: Towards Humane Global Governance is a must-read for students and scholars of international law, international relations and political science.Printed Pages: 560. 101946

Buddhist Studies: Papers of the 12th World Sanskrit Conference Held in Helsinki, Finland, 13-18 July, 2003: Vol. 8
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8120832485; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The impressive growth of Buddhist Studies in recent years is the result of several factors. Important collections of manuscripts have been found, and monuments unearthed, in nearly all parts of Asia where Buddhism existed; political and social events bringing East and West together have increased interest in both scholarly research and Buddhist religious practices. The spread of Buddhism outside its birthplace, Madhyadesa, first in India and soon throughout Asia, prompted its followers constantly to invent new discursive strategies and to adjust the rules to local customs and administrations. The essays presented here illustrate how why Buddhist literature adapted to a new and specific context, particularly in North-west India. They also discuss hermeneutical and exegetical practices of Indian Buddhism, the complex interrelation between the Brahmanical and the Buddhist milieu, as well as the role of the social and political context in determining the rules of the monastic code (vinaya).

Lives of Indian Images
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Private Limited/Research India Press; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8120816927; Softcover; New; 
For many centuries, Hindus have taken it for granted that the religious images they place in temples and home shrines for purposes of worship are alive. Hindu priests bring them to life through a complex ritual ”establishment” that invokes the god or goddess into material support. Priests and devotees then maintain the enlivened image as a divine person through ongoing liturgical activity: they must awaken it in the morning , bathe it, dress it, feed it, entertain it, praise it, and eventually put it to bed at night. In this linked series of case studies of Hindu religious objects, Richard Davis argues that in some sense these believers are correct: through ongoing interactions with humans, religious objects are brought to life. Davis draws largely on reader response literary theory and anthropological approaches to the study of objects in society in order to trace the biographies of Indian religious images over many centuries. He shows that Hindu priests and worshipers are not the only ones to enliven images. Bringing with them differing religious assumptions, political agendas, and economic motivations, others may animate the very same objects as icons of sovereignty, as polytheistic ”idols,” as ”devils,” as potentially lucrative commodities, as objects of sculptural art, or as symbols for a whole range of new meanings never foreseen by the images’ makers of original worshipers.
