The Mathematics of Logic: A Guide to Completeness Theorems and Their Applications
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2007; 052170877X; First Edition; Paperback; New; 150 x 230 Mm 
This undergraduate textbook covers the key material for a typical first course in logic, in particular presenting a full mathematical account of the most important result in logic, the Completeness Theorem for first-order logic. Looking at a series of interesting systems, increasing in complexity, then proving and discussing the Completeness Theorem for each, the author ensures that the number of new concepts to be absorbed at each stage is manageable, whilst providing lively mathematical applications throughout. Unfamiliar terminology is kept to a minimum, no background in formal set-theory is required, and the book contains proofs of all the required set theoretical results. The reader is taken on a journey starting with König's Lemma, and progressing via order relations, Zorn's Lemma, Boolean algebras, and propositional logic, to completeness and compactness of first-order logic. As applications of the work on first-order logic, two final chapters provide introductions to model theory and nonstandard analysis. • Lively mathematical examples and some unusual formal systems stimulate the reader from the very beginning • Suitable as an introduction to logic for students without any background in formal set theory • Supported by companion web-pages containing further material and exercises Contents Preface; How to read this book; 1. König’s lemma; 2. Posets and maximal elements; 3. Formal systems; 4. Deductions in posets; 5. Boolean algebras; 6. Propositional logic; 7. Valuations; 8. Filters and ideals; 9. First-order logic; 10. Completeness and compactness; 11. Model theory; 12. Nonstandard analysis; Bibliography; Index. Printed Pages: 216 with 4 line diagrams, 141 exercises, and 50 worked examples. 020838

What is Moderate Islam?
Akshaya Prakashan; New Delhi, India; 2017; 8188643653; Softcover; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
"Richard L. Benkin has put forth a solid collection of chapters on one of the most critical topics of the dayódistinguishing between moderate Muslims and Islamists. With the growing threat of Islamist groups in the Middle East and their affiliates in the West, the issue of identifying moderates necessitates a clear and guided answer, which is detailed throughout these chapters. This book is a must-read for anyone seeking to understand the complexities and nuances of the Muslim world at large." - Asaf Romirowsky, Middle East Forum Radical Islam is a major affliction of the contemporary world. Each year, radical Islamists carry out terrorist attacks that result in a massive death toll, almost always involving noncombatants and innocents. Estimates of how many Muslims could be considered followers of radical Islam vary widely, and there are few guides to help distinguish moderates from radicals. Observers often sit at the extremes, either seeing all Muslims as open or closeted jihadis or recoiling from any attempt to link Islam with international terror. Both positions are overly simplistic, and the lack of rational principles to absolve the innocent and identify the accomplices of terror has led to governments and individuals mistakenly accepting jihadis as moderate. What is Moderate Islam? brings together an array of scholars and activists -Muslim and non-Muslim- to provide this missing insight. This wide-ranging collection examines the relationship among Islam, civil society, and the state. The contributors investigate how radical Islamists can be distinguished from moderate Muslims, analyze the potential for moderate Islamic governance, and challenge monolithic conceptions of Islam.

The Philosophy of Gottlob Frege
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2005; 0521836697; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 228 x 152 Mm 
This analysis of Frege’s views on language and metaphysics in ‘On Sense and Reference’, arguably one of the most important philosophical essays of the past hundred years, provides a thorough introduction to the function/argument analysis and applies Frege’s technique to the central notions of predication, identity, existence and truth. Of particular interest is the analysis of the Paradox of Identity and a discussion of three solutions: the little-known Begriffsschrift solution, the sense/reference solution, and Russell’s ‘On Denoting’ solution. Russell’s views wend their way through the work, serving as a foil to Frege. Appendices give the proofs of the first 68 propositions of Begriffsschrift in modern notation. This book will be of interest to students and professionals in philosophy and linguistics. • Detailed analysis of Frege’s thought and the philosophical issues he grappled with • Makes difficult material accessible and understandable Contents 1. Biography; 2. Function and argument; 3. Sense and reference; 4. Frege’s Begriffsschrift theory of identity; 5. Concept and object; 6. Names and descriptions; 7. Existence; 8. Thought, truth value and assertion; 9. Indirect reference; 10. Through the quotation marks. Printed Pages: 246. 012831

Expanding Frontiers in South Asian and World History: Essays in Honour of John F. Richards
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 1107034280; Hardcover; New; New; 
This volume celebrates the work of Professor John F. Richards (d. 2007) a historian who significantly changed our understanding of the Mughals medieval Deccan and environmental history. Expanding Frontiers in South Asian and World History has brought together eminent scholars of South Asian and Global History who were colleagues and associates of Professor John F. Richards to discuss themes that marked his work as a historian in an academic career spanning almost forty years. It encapsulates discussions under the rubric of ‘frontiers’ in multiple contexts – frontiers and state building; frontiers and environmental change; cultural frontiers; frontiers trade and drugs; and frontiers and world history. It reflects at once in the spirit of Professor Richards’ own work a concern for large-scale global processes as well as for the detailed specificities of each historical case.Printed Pages: 380. 101423

Why does philosophy give some people a headache, others a real buzz and yet others a feeling that it is subversive and dangerous? Why do a lot of people think philosophy is totally irrelevant? What is philosophy anyway? The ABCs of philosophy-easy to understand but never simplistic. Beginning with basic questions posed by the ancient Greeks: What is the world made of? What is man? What is knowledge? What is good and evil? this guide traces the development of these questions as the key to understanding how Western philosophy developed over the last 2,500 years.

Survey and Repair of Traditional Buildings: A Sustainable Approach
Donhead Publishing Ltd; Dorset, UK; 2003; 1873394500; First Edition; Hard Cover; Brand New; 20.5 Cms x 28 Cms 
Understanding the unique requirements of traditional buildings is crucial to providing appropriate guidance on their care and repair. This book will help practitioners identify the particular issues relating to older buildings and the problems they may encounter when surveying and repairing them. With the use of examples, the author provides invaluable information on how traditional buildings perform, emphasizing the need for a sensitive and sustainable approach which also takes account of the specific needs of the building. The book examines all aspects to be included in any assessment for survey and repair, and points out in detail the potential pitfalls. It also explores the controversial issues surrounding the treatment of damp and timber decay, advocating solutions that are appropriate to older buildings rather than using standard, often damaging, methods of treatment. The extensive case studies not only illustrate good conservation in practice but also how projects can go badly wrong, and how mistakes could have been avoided.

The Healing Power of the Breath: Simple Techniques to Reduce Stress and Anxiety, Enhance Concentration, and Balance Your Emotions
Shambhala Publication/TBI; New Delhi, India; 1590309022; Softcover; New; 
Here’s a drug-free, side effect–free solution to common stress and mood problems—developed by two physicians. Millions of Americans suffer from mood problems and stress-related issues including anxiety, depression, insomnia, and trauma-induced emotions and behaviors; and most would prefer not to take medication for their conditions due to troublesome side effects, withdrawal symptoms, and disappointing success rates.Drs. Richard P. Brown and Patricia L. Gerbarg provide a drug-free alternative that works through a range of simple breathing techniques drawn from yoga, Buddhist meditation, the Chinese practice of qigong, Orthodox Christian monks, and other sources. These methods have been scientifically shown to be effective in alleviating specific stress and mood challenges such as anxiety, insomnia, post-traumatic stress disorder, and many others. The authors explain how breathing practices activate communication pathways between the mind and the body, positively impacting the brain and calming the stress response. The enclosed audio program guides readers through the techniques and helps make these breathing practices an ongoing part of daily life. Printed Pages: 176. 112860

Indian Epigraphy: A guide to the study of Inscriptions in Sanskrit, Prakrit and other Indo-Aryan Languages
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1998; 8121508770; Reprint; Hard Cover; New; New; 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
This book provides a general survey of all the inscriptional material in the Sanskrit, Prakrit, and modern Indo-Aryan languages, including donative, dedicatory, panegyric, ritual, and literary texts carved on stone, metal, and other materials. This material comprises many thousands of documents dating from a range of more than two millennia, found in and the neighbouring nations of South Asia, as well as many parts of Southeast, central, and East Asia. The inscriptions are written, for the most part, in the Brahmi and Kharosthi scripts and their many varieties and derivatives. Inscriptional materials are of particular importance for the study of the Indian world, constituting the most detailed and accurate historical and chronological data for nearly all aspects of traditional Indian culture in ancient and medieval times. Richard Salomon surveys the entire corpus of Indo-Aryan inscriptions in terms of their contents, languages, scripts, and historical and cultural significance. He presents this material in such a way as to make it useful not only to Indologists but also non-specialists, including persons working in other aspects of Indian or South Asian studies, as well as scholars of epigraphy and ancient history and culture in other regions of the world.

Autism Spectrum Disorders: Interventions and Treatments for CHildren and Youth
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8178299127; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) present a perplexing challenge for parents and school professionals. Literally dozens of interventions and treatments are available, so how does one know which intervention strategy works best for any given child or situation? This essential new resource, Autism Spectrum Disorders, was developed to respond directly to the extraordinary difficulty school professionals and families face in selecting and applying appropriate, effective interventions and treatments for the children in their care. The information is presented in a straightforward and simple format, practical for finding clear answers to complex questions. For easy access, the book is organized into the following five intervention categories: Interpersonal Relationships, Skill-Based Treatment Programs, Cognitive Methods,Physiological/Biological/Neurological Approaches, and Other Treatments and Interventions. Each category contains several detailed reviews, including: - A description of the intervention or treatment - Reported benefits and effects associated with its use - A synthesis of how the outcomes relate to individuals with ASD - A discussion of who is best qualified to implement the intervention, including when and where - Potential costs and risks Comprehensive in scope, this resource briefly evaluates over 40 commonly used and purported interventions and treatments for individuals with ASD, as well as detailed evaluations of their utility and efficiency. It will assist readers in critically evaluating and choosing those methods that have the highest probability of yielding benefits for this special population. Printed Pages: 260. 033045

The Uncertain Legacy of Crisis: European Foreign Policy Faces the Future
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789383649426; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The European Union is mired in the worst crisis it has seen for many decades. And the crisis does not stop at Europe’s edge. It threatens to undercut the EU’s ambitions to develop a coherent and active foreign policy, but it is also forcing European states to reevaluate their approach to security and defence. Richard Youngs examines the legacy of the crisis and what it will mean for the EU’s international role. The fallout undermines the EU’s foreign policy capacity and tarnishes its normative brand, compelling some member states to focus on realpolitik and their own national-level policies. But there are also signs of enhanced European cooperation, greater international ambition, and deepened commitment to the values of a liberal world order. Youngs details how the EU can craft an effective foreign policy strategy while confronting an internal economic crisis and a reshaped global order.Printed Pages: 178. 105045

Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 2002; 8174362533; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 8.5 x 5.5 Inches 
The search through the ruins of the World Trade Center is complete. The Pentagon has been fully repaired. But has the war against terrorism been won? More Specifically, has the threat posed by Osama bin Laden's Al Qaeda organisation been contained? The most significant impact of the US military operation has, of course, been on the Taliban but will the United Front, back in power in Afghanistan, be able to reconstruct the devastated and bleak country, politically and economically? Afghanistan and 9/11 journeys through the ruins of the Twin Towers and the killing fields of Afghanistan to focus on the key question of whether the war against terror has been won? A compelling anthology authored by well-known national and international authors, the book is as informative as it is analytical. Printed Pages: 256. 011509

This book focuses on the language and language identity of individual speakers and communities among the Finno-Ugric minorities, living today in a world in which borders can easily be crossed. Social, economic and political changes that have affected language communities also affect the domains in which a given language is used. The Finno-Ugric minorities have different histories, their political and economic circumstances are far from uniform, and they also differ from the majority language groups in many ways. Every language community has its own special characteristics that illustrate the fate of language minorities in more general terms. Printed Pages: 406. 116237

The rise of agriculture, identification of new cultural waves in terms of language are topics that outline the early prehistory in the North. The book contains twelve articles by linguists and archaeologists, evidence drawn from various Finno-Ugric and Indo-European languages, and up-to-date insights into the research of prehistoric Northern Europe.

Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2000; 9525031187; New; 
Teoksessa selvitellään virolaista syntyperää olevan luterilaisen papiston muotoutumista Venäjällä vuosina 1870–1917. Lisäksi käsitellään niitä virolaisten pyrkimyksiä kirkollisten uudistusten aikaansaamiseksi, jotka johtivat vapaan kansankirkon syntyyn ja tätä koskevan ohjelman hahmottumiseen. Teos vahvistaa perinteistä kuvaa jyrkästä kansallisesta ja sosiaalisesta vastakkainasettelusta virolaisten ja saksalaisten välillä. Luterilainen kirkko ei kyennyt muodostumaan sellaiseksi kahden kansan integraation tyyssijaksi, jollainen se olemuksensa johdosta olisi voinut olla. Printed Pages: 379. 114626

Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2002; 9517463553; New; 
In searching for answers for the problem of evil and the conditions of happiness on earth in his contemporary society, Louis-Sébastien Mercier 's utopia offers a generally valid analysis concerning the means and aims of a happy life. On the other hand, the present study indicates that Mercier 's vision of the "best of possible worlds" also reveals a great deal about the reasons why the prevailing eighteenth-century conception of happiness already contained the seeds of its own destruction. This investigation sheds light on Mercier 's utopian vision both as critical mirror image analyzing its own society, and as an exploration of possible futures. Printed Pages: 326. 115947

Suomalainen Rivitalo: Työväenasunnosta keskiluokan Unelmaksi
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2014; 9522225681; New; 
Suomalainen rivitalo kertoo kauniin ja käytännöllisen asumismuodon historian. Mukana on tähtiarkkitehtien suunnittelemia asuntoja, mutta myös huomiotta jääneitä mestareita ja idyllejä. Suomessa rivitaloja rakennettiin aluksi enimmäkseen työväen asunnoiksi, vaikka maamme ensimmäiset rivitalot nousivatkin Kulosaaren ylelliseen huvilakaupunkiin 1917. Rivitalo edustaa modernia kaupunkirakentamista, joka mahdollisti oman pihan pieneenkin asuntoon. Koko kansan asumismuoto rivitalosta tuli vasta sotien jälkeen, jolloin syntyivät muun muassa Espoon Tapiola, Helsingin Lauttasaari ja Maunula, Joensuun Kanervala, Oulun Karjasilta, Jyväskylän Viitaniemi ja Rovaniemen Korkalorinne. Kymmenet arkkitehdit suunnittelivat erilaisiin maisemiin istuvia rivitaloja sekä aravalainojen tiukat ehdot täyttäviä koteja lapsiperheille. Printed Pages: 252. 114192
