The Hindu Temples in South East Asia: Their Role in Social, Economic and Political Formations
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8173054282; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 22 x 28 Cm 
Many thousand temples built within a time span of about thousand years, before the fourteen century, stand as witness to the creative genius of different communities of Southeast Asia. They also testify to the cultural dialogue between India and Southeast Asia centered on the architectural and planning experiences as coded in the silpasastra texts of India. The present monograph looks at the Khmer temples of Hindu inspiration spread over mainland Southeast Asia both at the level of ideology and praxis, and attempts an integrated account of their symbolical as well as functional aspects. In the selection and regrouping of temples for the present study the three key words-social, economic and political formations have been the driving motive. The temples or the group of temples which explicate their role in these basic formations of human civilization have, therefore been taken up in this monograph. This monograph offers a chapter devoted to various aspects of temples in the Khmer mainland of Southeast Asia. The first chapter examines the evolution of temples in the region from the open air sacred spaces. The following chapter sees the temple as an architectural search for the centre, analyses the ideology of Meru and presents 13 examples of temple mountains. The temple's catalytic role in the formation of village and city forms the theme of the next two chapters. The temple based process of the formation of capital and means of production concerns the following chapter. The vital role of temple in manpower mobilization for agricultural expansion has been closely examined in the succeeding chapter. The next chapter examines the interlink between water and architecture with a particular reference to the hydraulic debate. The temple as a Sanskritizing agent forms the theme of the last chapter.

The Tribal Village in Bihar: A Study in Unity and Extension
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1968; 8121504317; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
From the early fifties there was a spurt of interest among social anthropologists, both Indian and foreign, in village studies, however, covered the tribal communities with this focus. This study seeks to fill this gap for the Chhotanagpur tribal area. It embraces in its wide sweep an extensive coverage of the tribal scene in Bihar. Taking villages predominantly inhabited by different tribes on various socio-economic levels, the author tries to set up the model of an average tribal village in Bihar. He examines the extent to which such a village can be viewed as a unity and also its extensions in various social fields. The danger of studying a village in isolation from its neighbourhood or from its history has been avoided. The entire social process has been analyzed in the background of the history of the region.

26325 Sadanand Deshmukh; Translated By Vilas Salunke
Baromaas: Twelve Enduring Months
Popular Prakashan; Mumbai, India; 2013; 8179917770; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
Baromaas: Twelve Enduring Months, a Sahitya Akademi Award winning novel of 2004, presents a gripping tale of a farmer's family in contemporary India. Its realism is so convincing, content so genuine and near perfect, form so aesthetically pleasing that it could become one of the best regional novels in World Literature. A representative tale of Indian farming that depends on the erratic rain-god on the one hand and the expectancy of high market returns on the other both of which rarely come to the farmer's aid the tale develops a point of no return. Deeply rooted in the Vidarbha soil, Sadanand Deshmukh, a regional novelist of repute in Marathi, captures the tragedy of the honest, god-fearing but hard working Tanpure family so faithfully that it could even be compared to the poignancy and realism of the Joads in John Steinbeck's Nobel Prize winning American regional novel The Grapes of Wrath. The tragic inevitability of the plot, its down-to-earth characters and its near perfect realism helps reach the novel to a pinnacle of artistic achievement. Printed Pages: 384. 037663

Myths From the Mahabharata (Volume 2: Study in Patterns and Symbols)
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2001; 8173052107; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The present Book forms part of the bigger plan of studying the Mahabharata, from a different point of view, the Vol. I being Myths from the Mahabharata - quest for immortality. The various mythical accounts, concerning awkward looking tests and Supranormal Birth, collected and faithfully preserved by the tradition of the suta-s with a belief of iti-ha-asa ("This happened so' or "This was so'), are studied in this volume, taking into account the Mythological patterns and symbols they present. The chapter on "Tests" deals with the tests taken of the disciples breathing the 'gurukula'-atmosphere as also the tests taken of the royal personages by the whimsical sages, the chapter not leaving off the point of sexual hospitality asked by the guest as a test of the householder. The pattern of myths woven round the motif of "Supranormal Birth" is seen unfolding many an interesting symbol concerning birth-phenomenon, which had remained unearthed up to this time.

Myths From the Mahabharata (Volume 3: Probe in Early Dim History and Folklore)
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2002; 8173052166; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The book forms the third and final part of the plan of studying the Mahabharata, from a different point of view, Vol. 1 being-Myths from the Mahabharata-Quest for Immortality, Vol. 2 being- Myths from the Mahabharata-Study in Patterns and Symbols. In this volume are unearthed through myths some iti-ha-asa records, which shed light on the facts and incidents of the hoary past, as yet shrouded in mystery. The iti-ha-asa records through myths, such as those gathered round the sage Agastya and those of the advent of the river Ganga, can be taken as breathing the 'true history' from the modern day point of view. Some iti-ha-asa records in the Mahabharata as seen through the tales of "Metamorphosis" and the "Miscellaneous Tales" lead us to the study of 'patterns' and are a help to explain many a myth. The Appendices serve as searchlight on some myths and folktales. Printed Pages: 304. 100238

"The book in its second part gives a short biographical sketch of (late) Dr. S.A. Dange and a bibliography of his writings, the latter, on the earnest insistence of researchers and scholars."

Vedic Sacrifices: Early Nature, 2 Vols.
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2000; 817305195X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 22 Cm 
The book is meant to mark the state of ritual as found in the Samhita and Brahmana texts. This is much before the Srautasutras, which in later times codified every matter of the then developed elaborate ritual. The glimpses from the Rgveda do not correspond to the details of the ritual found in these later texts. With the Brahmanas, the so called Srauta type of Vedic ritual was almost fixed, through the Srautasutras at some places show changes - omissions or additions. Even at the Samhits-Brahmana period, the institution of Vedic sacrifices evolved to such a level as to make a labyrinth of rules, options and explanatory myths. Without the knowledge of ritual of this stage, the picture of the ritual got from the Srautasutras would remain incomplete. The present book is meant for both scholars and those elite readers, who are interested in knowing the main sacrifices without getting lost in the net of rites. Printed Pages: 584. 100240

"The book deals with variety of concepts, images and beliefs in the Vedic tradition, revealed through Vedic hymns and rituals. Several images and symbols, at times, are influenced by folk-beliefs at that period, some of which are current even to-day. "The complex image of 'Aksara' not only having a rain-symbolism but also getting a dimension of proto-philosophy, that of the Son-husband current even today, that of the "crying worlds" not restricted only to the Vedic literature, the images centering round Soma as a ritual-drink, the 'eye' of Prajapati, the problematic "Sasarpari", divinity of the banners, Vana though a war-trumpet changing into ritual musical instrument, the unique birth of Vasistha and Agastya from a jar, the words 'Dvibarhas' and 'siprin' indicative of power and status, the riddle of the black antelope, dance of Indra and Chaya giving a glimpse of ancient war-dance - these and many more, delvings in the Vedic hymns and rituals display a treasure of myriad images."

26339 Sadashiv Ambadas Dange
Towards Understanding Hindu Myths
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 1996; 8173050805; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 22 Cm 
The Book takes a survey of important opinions and schools regarding the meaning of myths, such as the nature-myth school, the ritual-myth school which believed that all myths and rituals are intimately connected to each other and that they are counterparts of each other, the functional school and the structural approach to the understanding of myths. It also takes note of the historical and the typological method. It examines all these methods and evaluates the role of metaphor and symbol in the formation, and hence understanding, of myths. Dwelling on some of the tribal and classical myths studied by such scholars as Kramer, Malinowski, Claude Levi-Strauss, Kirk and others, it tries to throw fresh light on the meaning of these myths by further comparison. Non-Hindu myths are put to comparison with those from The Hindu context. This forms part I of the book. In part II it presents a study of some Hindu myths and legends, explaining the various symbols, motifs and patterns therein and tries to arrive at the meaning of these myths and legends. Thus, the 'bones of the sage Dadhici' get related to the ribs of the sacrificial horse. The avatara of Narsimha (Visnu Man-lion) gets related to the actual practice of showing lion-heads on thrones and pillars from ancient middle east to India, and Burma. The myth of Trisanku's bodily ascent to heaven has its source in a ritual at the Vajapeya sacrifice. The motif of the 'eighth', in relation to Krsna, has its source in early Vedic beliefs. Fresh light has been thrown on the myth of Renuka and Yellamma. The myth and ritual of Mahisasura-mardini gets a fresh scrutiny with new evidence from the Veda and south Indian folk-tales.

Sadguru Dattatreya
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1988; Softcover; New; 
The Present volume on Lord Dattatreya by Sadguru Sant Keshavadas is a significant contribution for interested scholars and lay people alike, released in his ongoing series of such scholarly publications.

The theme Lord Dattatreya is such a rare, lofty subject for study and spiritual inquiry, it lifts the mind to experience some of the higher peaks of Hindu and world spirituality. It is a theme which, until now, has not been adequately explored nor written about in detail. Hence the importance of this work which truly fills a great need in many ways. 102488

Philosophy of logic and philosophy of language are closely interrelated areas of research. Many of the philosophical questions arising from logic cannot be fully addressed without taking into consideration certain issues associated with the concerned language. The philosophical issues, e.g. concerning validity of an argument, proof for the validity of an argument are philosophical problems, which are generated from the study of logic.The book makes it explicit on how certain important philosophical questions generated from logic are, in the ultimate analysis, rooted in the area of philosophy of language. It also suggests certain means of settling these issues of philosophy of logic. In addition to certain issues in philosophy of logic the book extensively deals with certain issues in philosophy of language such as the issue concerning holism, semantic inferentialism, realism, objectivity of statements and representationalism.Those who are engaged in advanced research in philosophy of language and philosophy of logic will benefit immensely from reading this book. It will also be of great use to the students of philosophy and to the general readers as well. Printed Pages: 182. 110951

Objectivity and Communicability of Meaning
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8192611442; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Introduction. 1. Indeterminacy thesis and the naturalized semantics: a critique from the first-person perspective of meaning/Amitabha Dasgupta. 2. Communication, scepticism and triangulation/Kausik Bhattacharya. 3. Word, sentence and meaning/Nirmalya Narayan Chakraborty. 4. Meaning internalism vs meaning externalism can meaning holism be defended?/R.C. Pradhan. 5. The theory of Anvitabhidhana the Dvaita perspective/D. Prahlada Char. 6. How to apprehend the meaning of a word?/Gangadhar Kar. 7. Can the term Akasha Be meaningful in the Jatipadarthavada framework?/Madhumita Chattopadhyay. Index.This collection begins with the assumption that communication through language is possible. The moot question it is engaged with is whether the communicability of meaning entails the objectivity of meaning or not. The nuances involved in the idea of objectivity are deciphered and in what sense meaning is objective, if at all, is discussed in the volume.The articles included in this volume are written from the Western as well as from the Indian philosophical perspectives. Philosophical views of Wittgenstein, Searle, Putnam, Davidson, Quine, McDowell and many such eminent philosophers from the West, and the views of scholars of Nyaya, Buddhism and Mimamsa schools of Indian philosophy are studied closely in these articles. Researchers interested in the issue of objectivity and communicability of meaning of language will find food for their thought in reading this book. Students of philosophy, linguistics, logic, mathematics and the allied subjects in Western and Indian traditions will have a clear grasp of the nature of meaning that is made explicit in this collection.

26349 Sadhana Amte; Translated By Shobha Pawar
Samidha
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8125034048; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
A fairy tale romance and a blueprint for anyone who wants to venture into social service, this autobiography of Sadhanatai Amte – a woman who chose to marry a frenzied man and a dreamer, Baba Amte – is also a tale of her willing surrender in love without the slightest loss of her identity. It is a document of the dreams they dreamt for humankind and their struggle to put life into them. These memoirs present the portrait of a woman beside a man; a perfect consort who has the ability to tame the living storm, Baba Amte. Written without a stance, the distinctive simplicity of this transparent narrative, as compared to other similar writings by women, it has the power to stir its readers with its salty sea-air tang, and the warmth of a fruitful mad pursuit of a goal—at once personal and impersonal. A book like this – a saga of suffering, hopes, tensions and success, as well as the thrill of pleasure of work the two experienced while pursuing their goal – will serve as the beacon of light for posterity, and as a model in human relationships.

In Quest of Indian Folktales: Pandit Ram Gharib Chaube and William Crooke
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8125034501; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
In Quest of Indian Folktales publishes for the first time a collection of northern Indian folktales from the late nineteenth century. Reputedly the work of William Crooke, a well-known folklorist and British colonial official, the tales were actually collected, selected, and translated by a certain Pandit Ram Gharib Chaube. In 1996, Sadhana Naithani discovered this unpublished collection in the archive of the Folklore Society, London. Since then, she has uncovered the identity of the mysterious Chaube and the details of his collaboration with the famous folklorist. In an extensive four-chapter introduction, Naithani describes Chaube's relationship to Crooke and the essential role he played in Crooke's work, as both a native informant and a trained scholar. By unearthing the fragmented story of Chaube's life, Naithani gives voice to a new identity of an Indian folklore scholar in colonial India. The publication of these tales and the discovery of Chaube's role in their collection reveal the complexity of the colonial intellectual world and problematize our own views of folklore in a postcolonial world.

Kavyamimamsa of Rajasekhara: Original Text in Sanskrit and Translation with Explanatory Notes
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8124606943; First Edition; Softcover; New; 19 x 25 Cm 
As a body, Sanskrit writings unfold India’s millennia-long, almost unbroken intellectual tradition: not only of philosophy and grammar, but of literary theory as well. The concepts and critical theories, which the Sanskrit poeticians advanced or the issues they sought to address, inhere both universal appeal and validity. And, with certain modifications, these can well live up to the demands of modern literature. In this long and powerful tradition of Sanskrit literary theory that marked a definitive begining with Bharata’s Natyashastra (first century ad), Kavyamimamsa is a monumental work. Written sometime during 880-920 ad by Rajashekhara: an eminent poet, dramatist and critic, it is a kind of practical treatise for poets: kavishiksha manual -- highlighting, as it does, all possible attributes that go into the making of a good poet and a good poetic composition. Among other relevant aspects, Rajashekhara also includes here a systematic exposition of the views/opinions of his predecessors, with illustrations of the literary practices of various times and climes put down after careful empirical observation. Now, when there is a growing scholarly interest in the study of Sanskrit literary theory and how it is positioned vis-a-vis the Western critical tenets, Dr. Sadhana Parashar brings Rajashekhara’s classic within everyone’s reach -- offering the first-ever, complete English translation of Kavyamimamsa, with its original Sanskrit text and comprehensive explanatory notes. For sure, it is invaluable to the scholars of linguistics and literary criticism.Printed Pages: 350 with 2 maps 100474

26356 Sadhguru
The Mystic Eye: Vision of the Beyond (Yogi, Mystic and Visionary)
Jaico Publishing House; Delhi, India; 8179928837; Softcover; New; 
This is a book for the thirsty. And emphatically not a book for the faint-hearted. In a series of far-reaching exploratory conversations, Sadhguru a living master and mystic of our times – touches on every conceivable question that a seeker might nurse about the realm of the mystical. Questions about enlightenment, liberation, death, God and the afterlife. Also those niggling but ostensibly trifling questions that so many wonder about, but are hesitant to ask: about spirits, disembodied beings, black magic, possession and the occult. And in a riveting culmination to the book, Sadhguru unfolds the story of his life mission, a saga of extraordinary commitment and courage that spans three lifetimes. The result is the Dhyanalinga, the dream of countless yogis down the centuries: a unique energy form which sows the seed of liberation in all who visit it.This is a book to treasure. It offers an unprecedented glimpse into the world of a contemporary mystic, a prodigious living archive of knowledge. In the course of his discussions, Sadhguru probes the farthest realms of illogic, and yet his unfailingly rational and matter-of-fact tone lends credibility to the more fantastic aspects of the content.Printed Pages: 272. 105329

26369 Sadhu Santinath
Encyclopaedia of Philosophy of Indian Religion, 2 Vols
Chaukhambha Publications; New Delhi, India; 2001; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The present work was originally intended to be a part of a greater collection being compiled on systems of Indian Philosophy. The Plan of the book was that the first part should be devoted to the exposition of all the principal religio-philosophical systems of India, and the second part to the critical examination of these systems. The material for the first part were collected from the original works, published as well as unpublished, of most of the representative writers belonging to the different systems. The work was arranged not historically but in accordance with the different conceptions of causality, which lead to the different philosophical conclusions. The second part was devoted to independent criticism of all those views by the author. After both the parts had been written, The Author engaged himself in a thorough revision of the work. In course of this revision the present work grew much bigger in volume and richer in content than it was originally intended to be. It was particularly so, because the author decided that it would be helpful for the general reader, if the views to be criticized were reproduced in plain and non-technical language just before the analysis and observations on them. The final work is now presented here in the shape of this major treatise, which also contains all the important contributions of the author to the philosophical literature of the country.The work is a significant contribution to a better understanding of the philosophy of religion, and will serve as a resource book for the readers.Printed Pages: 692. 100644

Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0143064754; First Edition; Paperback; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
Sadia Shepard grew up just outside of Boston, in a home where cultures intertwined—her father a white American Protestant and her mother, a Muslim from Pakistan. One day, when she was thirteen, she learned that Nana, her beloved maternal grandmother, was not a Muslim like the rest of her Pakistani family but had begun her life as Rachel Jacobs, a member of a tiny Jewish community in India that believes it is descended from one of the lost tribes of Israel, shipwrecked in India over two thousand years ago. Before Nana died, Sadia promised her grandmother that she would return to her birthplace to learn about the life and the faith that Nana had left behind. Armed with a suitcase of camera equipment, Sadia arrives in Bombay, where she finds herself struggling to document the Bene Israel’s unique traditions and make sense of her complicated cultural inheritance. In the course of her remarkable journey she unearths long-buried family secrets, learns that love is sometimes found in unusual places, and is forced to examine what it means to both lose and seek a homeland.

India's Long-term Growth Experience: Lessons and Prospects
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2007; 076193605X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
India’s rapid growth since 1980 is transforming it into a modern economic power. Measured in nominal US dollars, India’s economy has risen from a low rank of 50 in 1979 to 12th position in 2003. In income-to-purchasing power parity, India ranked fourth in the world in 2003, behind only the United States, China, and Japan. Although still classified as a low-income country in terms of per capita nominal US dollars because of its huge population, if present rates of growth continue, India should reach low middle income status by the end of this decade. Due to the closed nature of the Indian economy until the 1980s India continues to be a small player in the arena of international trade and investment flows, But with the recent opening up of the economy and rapid growth in the export of goods and services, India is definitely gaining strength. The tremendous surge in the export of services since 2001 is drawing international attention, inducing many IT-based global services to move to India. Also, private capital flows – including foreign direct investment – which were initially very limited, are now showing dynamism. During the 1970s, the debate in India centered on how to improve upon the historical 3 percent annual growth rate of the economy. Few would have predicted that this “sleeping giant” would wake up to attain – and sustain – an average growth rate of about 6 percent per annum for over 25 years. In fact, with 7.9 percent growth during 2002–05, there is increasing optimism about the economy achieving further growth. This situation has fueled a very lively debate in India, primarily on two aspects. The first concerns the factors underlying India’s long-term growth and the other relates to the sustainability of this growth. Sadiq Ahmed reviews the debate in the context of India’s long-term growth experience, opportunities, and challenges and examines the factors that helped to achieve rapid economic growth during the past 25 years. He draws on his findings to analyze the main constraints that are likely to affect the country’s growth in the future and highlight the policies that are needed to ease them.

Job Creation and Poverty Reduction in India: Towards Rapid and Sustained Growth
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0761936513; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Rapid growth since 1980 has transformed India from the world's 50th ranked economy in nominal US dollars to the 12th largest in 2003. When income is measured with regard to purchasing power parity, the Indian economy occupies 4th place, after the United States, Japan, and China. Along with growing incomes, India's increasingly outward orientation and the growing optimism about its economy has led to a sweeping rise in international investors' interest. At the same time evidence suggests that income inequality is rising and the gap in average per capita income between the rich and poor states is growing. Election results at the national and state level suggest that unless the issue of growing income inequality and inequality in standard of living is tackled upfront, there is a risk that the economic reform momentum might slow down. If this happens, growth will suffer. This book provides an in-depth treatment of growth and employment issues in India. It reviews India's long-term growth experience, emerging constraints and challenges, and the way forward for sustaining rapid growth along with more and better employment. Specifically, the book identifies ways in which investment can be improved to raise productivity and reduce the cost of doing business, thereby promoting domestic and foreign private investment. It looks at the growth and productivity challenges of agriculture and suggests policies that will help raise farm productivity and incomes. It explains the reason for the low overall employment elasticity of past growth and why there has been limited expansion of good jobs, and concludes by suggesting critical reform options for increasing employment.

Promoting Economic Cooperation in South Asia: Beyond SAFTA
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8132103114; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Promoting Economic Cooperation in South Asia: Beyond SAFTA examines the distinct development dichotomy that exists in South Asia and tries to find a workable solution to bridge this gap. In spite of rapid economic growth since 1980, there is extensive poverty and inequality in South Asia. This dichotomy has two faces: one is highly urbanized and well-linked to global markets and the other is rural, isolated from the global economy and growing very slowly. The large bulk of South Asia’s poor live in the latter environment. The book brings together perspectives from academics, the private sector, civil society and policy makers. Using solid empirical evidence and sound analysis, it stresses that in addition to policy and institutional reforms aimed at removing domestic constraints to growth and job creation, market integration and regional cooperation ought to be key elements of a strategy for removing the dichotomy and eliminating poverty in the longer term. Delving into major political economic issues of the SAARC region, the book analyses SAFTA, bilateral FTAs, transportation, regional integration, regulatory mechanisms, food prices, labour and employment, and tourism. It also provides a political economic analysis of why past cooperation efforts have not worked and how better cooperation can be achieved in specific areas. It looks at the many policy and institutional constraints that contribute to the present state and have made South Asia one of the least integrated regions of the world. The book will be a very useful reference for researchers, scholars and bilateral and multilateral financial institutions and donor groups interested in South Asia’s development. Policy makers and think tanks focusing on economics, political science and international relations will also find it beneficial. Printed Pages: 472. 031071

A History of Sufism in India: Vol. I: Early Sufism and Its History
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8121500397; Reprint; Hard Cover; New; New; 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
This work seeks to study Sufism as a psycho-historical phenomenon. The author finds it efficacious to combat social and political upheavals which are brought about by prolonged political revolutions, associated with autocratic oppression and economic deprivation. It is divided into two volumes. The present volume outlines the history of Sufism before it was firmly established in India and then goes on to discuss the principal trends in Sufi developments therefrom the thirteenth to the beginning of the sixteenth centuries. Chronologically it is concerned with Sufi history from the establishment of the Delhi Sultanate to the beginning of the Mughal Empire. Naturally it lays great emphasis on the Chistiyya, Suhrawardiyya, Firdausiyya and Kubrawiyya orders, but the contributions made by qalandars and legendary and semi-legendary saints have also not been neglected. A detailed discussion of the interaction of medieval Hindu mystic traditions and Sufism shows a unique polarity between the intolerant rigidity of the orthodox and the flexibility of the Sufis in India. Printed Pages: 480 with 2 coloured illustrations and 2 maps. 022672

A History of Sufism in India: Vol. II: From Sixteenth Century to Modern Times
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8121500400; Fourth Impression; Hard Cover; New; New; 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
The first volume of the History of Sufism in India outlined the history of Sufism before it was firmly established in India and then went on to discuss the principal trends in Sufi development in that country from the thirteenth to the beginning of the sixteenth century. Naturally it laid great emphasis on the Chishtiyya, Suhrawardiyya, Firdausiyya and Kubrawiyya orders, but the contributions made by Qalandars and legendary and semi-legendary saints were also discussed. The interaction of medieval Hindu mystic traditions and Sufism formed a significant chapter in that book. The present volume starts with a brief discussion of the mystical philosophy of Ibn 'Arabi, which played a pivotal role in the development of Sufic thought and practices in India, as it did in other Islamic countries. The work then deals with the Qadiriyya, Shattariyya, Naqshbandiyya and the Chishtiyya orders. It also analyses the role of Indian Sufis in the wider Islamic world, as well as Sufi perception of politics and Hinduism. Printed Pages: 548. 033810

Iran: Royalty, Religion and Revolution
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1980; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
Although the history of the Iranian monarchy itself goes back 2,500 years, the periods of strong rule during important dynasties, such as the Achaemenids and the Sasanids, were very short-lived. After the Arab conquest in the reign of 'Omar (634-644), Iran was ruled first from Medina and then from Damascus and later from Baghdad. Later still, Iran was ruled largely by Turkish and Mongol invaders. The Iranian people had never, however, hesitated to resist tyrannous rule. From the time of the legendary Kaveh in Ferdowsi's Shahnama to that of Ayatollahol 'Ozma Rouhollah Khomeini, the Iranian masses have struggled to establish a just and dynamic society. There has been no dearth of counter-revolutions, demagogues and impostors either. Many revolutions designed to overthrow despotism culminated in a new tyranny leading to a fresh revolution. Although the present work describes all important rebellions, revolutions and terrorist activities in Iran, it sees revolution only in terms of those human endeavours which fulfill a crucial function in the development of society; and does not seek to pass moral judgments. The work is also designed to analyse the process of reconstruction and revolution within the framework of the political, religious, literary and artistic development of Iran.

26400 Saiyid Athar Abbas Rizvi; Foreword By Prof. Muhammad Habib
Muslim Revivalist Movements in Northern India: In the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8121505909; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Focussing on the controversy surrounding the Wahdat-ul-Wujud (Unity of Being, All is He) of Ibn 'Arabi (1165-1240) and the Wahdat-ush-Shuhud (Unity of Appearance, All is from Him) of Shaikh 'Alaud-Dawla Simnani (1261-1336), the work goes on to analyse the impact of the above ideologies on the teachings of early Chishtiyas, Suhrawardiyas, Firdausiyas and Shattariyas. It then discusses the impact of the Islamic millennium and the messianic movements on the body-politic of Islam in India, culminating with the Mahdawi movement in the realm of religion and the Sulh-i-Kul (Universal peace and concord) of Akbar the Great in the realm of politics and government. The study of Muslim revivalist movements in Northern India that emerged as a reaction to the pressure of the movements mentioned above, is the principal objective of the present book. Their pioneers such as Shaikh 'Abdul Haq Muhaddis Dehlawi (1515-1642) and Mujaddid Alf-i-Sani Shaikh Ahmad Sirhindi (1564-1624) differed widely in their ideologies and practices. Shaikh 'Abdul Haq proceeded cautiously, while Mujaddid made strenuous efforts to convert the Mughal noblemen to his puritanically Islamic teachings. Naturally such a study is bound to be studded with controversial judgements but the author’s presentation of the vast source material on the subject has aroused considerable interest among the independent and objective thinkers, in the Muslim religious movements of India.
