Trade in Services in South Asia: Opportunities and Risks of Liberalization
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8178299372; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This collection of essays explores the opportunities and risks of the liberalization of trade in services in South Asia. It offers an overview of the entire region on market access and regulatory issues as defined by the GATS framework of the WTO and exposes areas for regional and bilateral liberalization. It provides policymakers and other stakeholders in the region with better comprehension of the problems pertaining to these, and consequently, shows them a clearer vision of how to overcome them. The compilation provides insight into the offensive and defensive interests in trade in services of the whole region. The essays survey the formidable challenges that South Asia faces—cost implications, “policy space” restrictions, stakeholder managing—while trying to comply with the GATS regulations on the one hand, and the often inadequate legal provisions and regulatory structures of the individual countries, on the other. It will hold great value for students, researchers, and faculty working in the fields of Economics and Development Studies and South Asia Studies, besides being a useful resource for policy makers.

27802 Samanth Subramanian
This Divided Island: Stories from the Sri Lankan War
Penguin Books India Pvt. Ltd.; Delhi, India; 2014; 0670086037; Hardcover; New; New; 
In the summer of 2009, the leader of the dreaded Tamil Tiger guerrillas was killed, bringing to a bloody end the stubborn and complicated civil war in Sri Lanka. For nearly thirty years, the war’s fingers had reached everywhere: into the bustle of Colombo, the Buddhist monasteries scattered across the island, the soft hills of central Sri Lanka, the curves of the eastern coast near Batticaloa and Trincomalee, and the stark, hot north. With its genius for brutality, the war left few places, and fewer people, untouched.What happens to the texture of life in a country that endures such bitter conflict? What happens to the country’s soul? Samanth Subramanian gives us an extraordinary account of the Sri Lankan war and the lives it changed. Taking us to the ghosts of summers past, and to other battles from other times, he draws out the story of Sri Lanka today—an exhausted, disturbed society, still hot from the embers of the war. Through travels and conversations, he examines how people reconcile themselves to violence, how religion and state conspire, how the powerful become cruel, and how victory can be put to the task of reshaping memory and burying histories.Printed Pages: 336. 103395

Notes from Gandhigram: Challenges to Gandhian Praxis
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8125036881; First Edition; Paperback; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
In a critical departure from books that concentrate on Gandhi the person, Gandhian thought and Gandhism, Notes from Gandhigram focuses instead on the institutions and individuals that have adopted the Gandhian approach as a means of social transformation. It looks beyond the conceptual and symbolic into the concrete to determine whether Gandhi is passé, redundant or insightful. The relevance of Gandhian thought is examined through a critical analysis of the experience of the Gandhigram Trust, a sixty-year old organisation based in the Dindigul district of Tamil Nadu. Retaining objectivity, but without being judgmental, the study validates the enduring relevance of Gandhi in converting a vision into a social engagement, creating a vibrant community with a culture of concern, humility and care. While Gandhigram has been buffeted by the conflicting relationships between individuals and the institutions, the people and the volunteer, economics and politics, tradition and modernity, self-interest and social interest, the Trust has endured. In today's world, where the legacy of Gandhi has been reduced to lip-service, this book places Gandhi squarely into the ongoing debates on globalisation, freedom and the relationship between the individual and society. It thus makes a valuable addition to the literature on Gandhi. Printed Pages: 264. 031555

Politics of Globalization
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2009; 817829947X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Politics of Globalization presents an up-to-date perspective on the kaleidoscopic politics of globalization. The authors analyse the existing definitions of capitalism and argue that globalization and the consequent growing multi-polarity in world politics is not a crisis but a proliferation of capitalisms. This network of capitalisms becomes the framework of the politics of the new globalization. This compilation by social scientists across the globe is an empirical and theoretical exploration of the socio-political responses to globalization. The authors examine the impacts of the decline of the US domination in trade and finance and compare it to the rise of Asian economies, with special focus on China and India. The articles explore the multiple impacts of globalization: the impact of new global political relations on 21st century international division of labour, the relation between gender equality and globalization, trade union politics and globalization, ecological politics and globalization discourse, dual citizenship and global politics, and globalization of language and culture. They also discuss the anti-globalization movements and argue that these might change the course of current trends in globalization processes. This book will be of great value for social scientists and economists as well as politicians, social activists, and other professionals interested in the study of globalization and its consequences.

Blisters on their Feet: Tales of Internally Displaced Persons in India's North East
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2008; 076193653X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
India's North East is fast becoming yet another zone of natural and man-made disasters, intercommunity strife, and violent conflicts. This has lead to its accounting for the largest number of people constantly on the move in the country, and hence the analogy in the book title with Blisters on their Feet. This book is a compendium of case studies drawn from Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, and Tripura - the four worst-affected states of the region. This book is the first of its kind, weaving the stories of the people of this region with rare insight, sensitivity, and commitment, and without any theoretical pretensions. The editor's introduction serves as a useful key to conceptualizing internal displacement as a research problem and a matter of national concern. The book helps us understand the human tragedy of this region in a wider comparative context. Printed Pages: 352. 028092

India: Democracy and Violence
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2015; 0199451834; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Violence is usually located outside the democratic domain. Its recurrence is understood as a direct threat to democracy. Democracies are called upon to 'manage', 'tackle', or 'deal with' it, not necessarily through democratic means. Today, democracy is sought to be 'exported' across continents by waging war on countries that, according to the exporting countries of the West,are yet to become democratic. This book contests and demystifies the celebrationist understanding of democracy and argues that violence is embedded in democracy as much as democracy is embedded in violence. Their interconnected existence has only made democracy violent and violence one of the many ways of trying to make a democracy work. So, more of democracy does not necessarily mean less of violence and vice versa. Viewed in this light, this book examines the connection as organic and one of mutually spiralling nature. Democratic institutions and violence are thus implicated in an endless dialogue and confrontation. The alternative to democracy can only be a better democracy.Printed Pages: 268. 104488

Penguin; London, UK; 2007; 0143103520; First Edition; Paperback; New; 13 x 20 Cm 
Under the all-seeing eyes of the assembled gods, armies are on the move. The Game has begun. And when it ends, the world will end too . . . In The Unwaba Revelations, the third and concluding part of the GameWorld trilogy, a way must be found to save the world; to defeat the gods at their own game. A daunting prospect under any circumstances, made worse by the fact that the gods, who control all the heroes, are blatantly cheating by following only one rule—that they cannot be defeated by their own creations. As epic battles ravage the earth, Kirin and Maya, guided only by an old, eccentric and extremely unreliable chameleon, and egged on by the usual rag-tag gang, carry out their secret plan; a plan so secret that, in fact, no one involved has any idea what they are doing! Monsters, mayhem, mud-swamps; conspiracies, catastrophes, chimeras; betrayals, buccaneers, bloodshed—The Unwaba Revelations continues the roller coaster journey that began with The Simoqin Prophecies and gathered momentum with The Manticore’s Secret. Traversing earth, sea and sky, realms both infernal and celestial, worlds both imagined and material, this book will draw you irresistibly into a tantalizing, action-packed, epic race to reclaim the flawed, magical world of its heroes.

The Prophecies foretell the reawakening of the terrible rakshas, Danh-Gem, and the arrival of a hero to face him. But heroes do not appear magically out of nowhere; they have to be found and trained. And sometimes the makers of prophecies don't know everything they need to know... As the day of Danh-Gem's rising draws closer and the chosen hero is sent on a quest, another young man learns of terrible things he must do in secret and the difficult choices he must make in order to save the world from the rakshas. Drawn from a variety of sources ranging from Greek and Indian epics to spy novels, fairy tales to superhero comics, The Simoqin Prophecies is a compelling tale, marked by meticulous plotting and artful storytelling-a page-turner sure to grip you from start to finish.

Glass Paintings: An Ephemeral Art in India
B.R. Publishing Corporation; New Delhi, India; 1997; 8170189187; Hardcover; New; New; 
In the book, Glass Paintings : An Ephemeral Art in India, the author has recorded the hitherto unpublished glass paintings found in the collection of the Bharat Itihas Samshodhak Mandal of Pune. These paintings represent a novel technique; these are done in oil rather than in water as was the earlier practice. The choice of the themes is also a departure from the traditional ones. They consist mainly of portraits representing an exotic fashion which also attempts to bring out the personality of the subject. This is a pioneering effort by the author to study an important but rather unknown aspect of the culture of the nineteenth century in western India. Contents:- Preface 1. Prolegomena 2. European Influences 3. Collection in the Bharat Itihas Samshodhak Mandal Printed Pages: 96. 110436

Fudo Myo-o (Acalanatha Vidyaraja) in Art and Iconography of Japan
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8124606048; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 23 x 29 Cm 
Shingon Buddhism -- esoteric Buddhism brought to Japan from China during the early ninth century -- inspired a new spiritual energy that found expression in varied forms, especially in art and iconography. A radical change occurred with the introduction of new deities, among them the Five Great Kings, the most important of them being Fudo Myo-o, the conqueror of all disasters and evil. This book is a study of the concept, iconography and decoction of Fudo in art. Beginning with a detailed account of the origin of Buddhism and its introduction into Japan, the book focuses on development of esoteric Buddhism in the country. It delves into the uniqueness of Shingon Buddhism rituals which try to evoke the vitality of the three mysteries in the body, speech and thought, the mysteries being transmitted orally from the master to the disciple. Describing Fudo Myo-o as discussed in Buddhist literary sources from India, it takes up his visual representation in painting and sculpture. It discusses the representation of his attendants in art and iconography, symbolic instruments associated with the god in his depiction and interpretations of the mudras (hand gestures, postures, emblems) carried by Fudo. It explains the esoteric meaning attached to various ideas and concepts represented in the visual images. Supported by numerous illustrations, this detailed and thorough study would enthral students and scholars of Buddhist art and iconography.

In this recounted autobiographical account, Sampat Pal, the founder and leader of the Gulabi Gang, looks back to trace her journey as a young girl of twelve, forced into child marriage, who later goes on to become the leader of the most feared group of women vigilantes in the country. Her rebellious instinct, fervor for justice and her desire to free women from their everyday oppression led her to organize the women in and around her village in Uttar Pradesh into a gang.

The Life of Hiuen-Tsiang: Shaman Hwui-Li with an introduction containing an account of the works of I-Tsing
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8121503329; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
The Life of Hiuen-Tsiang by Shaman Hwui Li is a companion volume to the Si-Yu-Ki or the Buddhist Records of the Western World of Hiuen-Tsiang. It is an indispensable source-book for the scholars interested in the history of ancient India in general and Buddhism in particular. The Life of Hiuen-Tsiang contains a biographical account of his life by his disciple Hwui Li. It elucidates the details relating to the events in the life of the great scholar, saint and pilgrim-traveller. The life is divided into five Books and covers the entire life-span of Hiuen-Tsiang, beginning with his birth till his death in the year 664. The description of the eventful life of his master which was as much occupied by travels as by an almost unbelievably gigantic task of translating a large number of original Buddhist works from Sanskrit into Chinese, is marked by reverential attitude and makes a fascinating reading. But more than that, it is a compendium of information on contemporary China, India and those remote parts of Central Asia which the great pilgrim traversed during his journey to India. Samuel Beal's translation of the Life from original Chinese is an authentic rendering with copious notes on controversial matters. It also contains an account of the works of I-Tsing who also journeyed into India in the footsteps of Hiuen-Tsiang. Besides a Preface by L.Crammer Byung, the present edition also contains a detailed Introduction by Samuel Beal wherein various controversial matters including those pertaining to the indentification of names and places have been discussed.

Si-Yu-Ki or the Buddhist Records of the Western World: trans. From the Chinese of Hiuen Tsiang AD 629, 2 vols. (bd in 1)
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8121507413; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Among the various travelogues, Hiuen Tsiang's Si-yu-ki or Records of the Western World, is regarded to be the most valuable source-book for the study of ancient Indian history. Si-yu-ki is not merely a travel-diary recording Hiuen Tsing's visit to various places in India and the places en route, but is also an account of the conditions of India during the seventh century. This journey was undertaken by Hiuen Tsiang primarily with a view to visiting the Buddhist places of pilgrimage and to seek answers to the questions agitating his mind. He was inspired in this by the recollection of similar journeys undertaken centuries ago by his predecessors, Fa-hien, Sung Yun and many others. Born at Loyang in the year 600, Hiuen Tsiang set out on this journey to the regions west of China and to India at the age of twentynine (629) from Chang' an in West China. Travelling by the northern route which took him to Turfan, Kara Shahr, Lake Issyk Kul, Tashkent, Samarkand, Balkh and Bamiyan, he arrived in the Kingdom of Gandhara towards the end of the year 630. There-from he proceeded to India and practically traversed the entire country going as far south as Kanchi and Nasik, Valabhi and Multan in the west. During his sojourn he spent nearly eight years, from 635 to 643, in Harsha's dominions and stayed for about fifteen months at Nalanda, learning the Yogachara doctrine which he afterwards enunciated in a book on his return to his country. Early in 645 he reached China, returning by the southern route passing through Kashgar, Yarkand, Khotan and Lop-nor. On his return to China, where he was received with great honour and bestowed the title Master of the Law, he took to the work of compiling an account of his travels. In the present volume, Samuel Beal has included, for the sake to completeness, Travels of Fa-hian or Fo-Kwo-ki. The Hwei-Sang and the preface to the Si-Yu-Ki by Chang Yueh.

The Chinese Buddhist Pilgrims visited India during the early centuries of the Christian era. The Buddhist literature of China contains the records of their travels, the authenticity of which is vouchsafed by the fact that they embody the testimony of independent eye-witnessess as to the facts related in them.The records are very interesting as they refer to the geography, history, manners and religion of the people of the countries West of China, of India in particular, visted by the pilgrims.The reader who looks into the pages of this book will find ample material for study on some important questions; the different manners and customs of separate people, the various products of the different soils and the diverse class divisions of the society; when Buddhism flourished and when Buddhism declined as also how the devoted pilgrims encountered the perils of travel in foreign and distant lands and endured sufferings by desert, mountain and sea.

The present work contains two translations from the Chinese— (1) The Travels of Fah-Hian and (2) The Mission of Sung-Yun; both Buddhist pilgrims from China to India. This translation was published at a time when little was known in Europe of Chinese-Buddhist literature. Fah-Hian’s account of travels in India and Ceylon from AD 399 to 414 is one of the most important sources of reconstructing the life and condition of the times. Though brief, his account depicts general characteristics and tenderness of Gupta Imperial administration. It is a source-book for the study of Ancient India and Buddhism in India.

"The Gospel as Public Truth": An Indian Multi-Religious Perspective on Lesslie Newbigin (Christian Heritage Rediscovered: 12)
Christian World Imprints/B.R. Publishing Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789351480327; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book addresses the issue of "Christian Gospel" and "Culture" in the multi-faith context of India. The Author believes that, Bishop Lesslie Newbigin's clarion call of "Gospel as Public Truth" is the point of departure in relation to the Religious Pluralism prevalent in India. Christian Gospel is unabashedly hinged to the person of Jesus, the Christ. When this Gospel is preached as "Public Truth" in a context like India there is all possibility that it is misunderstood and even rejected. In such a scenario, two tendencies are usually visible: privatizing of the Christian Gospel or a bulldozing of it on others. Either of these can be dangerous, detrimental and counter productive to the affirmation of both Christian Gospel and Culture.This book is a humble attempt to understand this interaction of the Gospel and Culture of India, in the light of the discussions put forward by Newbigin. Armed with a detailed Bibliography and supplementing Appendices the book is meant for Historians, Christian Laity, Church Clergies, Theologians, Religious leaders, Students and Researchers, all alike.Printed Pages: 136. 106399

Ekklesia: Indian Conversations (A Study of the Church)
Christian World Imprints/B.R. Publishing Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789351480549; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Jesus said, ".... I will build my church, and the gates of hades will not prevail against it" (Mat. 16:18). What concept/metaphor/image of the church was he alluding to? What are its nature, character, and function? Is it a relevant institution today? Well, these and few other pertinent questions are not just raised but grappled with an Indian/Asian perspective by various authors in the book. The focus of the book is on church as `Ekklesia', meaning "summoned or called out assembly of people".It can also mean a convoked community. Present day, Indian church needs to redefine her character and existence in such a way that it becomes meaningful and relevant to our society. This book, `Ekklesia: Indian Conversations' is a humble attempt towards that goal.Printed Pages: 403. 106394

The Buddhas Wife
Simon & Schuster/TBI; New Delhi, India; 1501134841; Softcover; New; 
"As the category of women's spirituality continues to grow, The Buddha's Wife offers to a broad audience for the first time the intimate and profound story of Princess Yasodhara, the wife Buddha left behind, and her alternative journey to spiritual enlightenment. What do we know of the wife and child the Buddha abandoned when he went off to seek his enlightenment? The Buddha's Wife brings this rarely told story to the forefront, offering a nuanced portrait of this compelling and compassionate figure while also examining the practical applications her teachings have on our modern lives. Princess Yasodhara's journey is one full of loss, grief, and suffering. But through it, she discovered her own enlightenment within the deep bonds of community and 'ordinary' relationships. While traditional Buddhism emphasizes solitary meditation, Yasodhara's experience speaks of 'The Path of Right Relation,'of achieving awareness not alone but together with others. The Buddha's Wife is comprised of two parts: the first part is a historical narrative of Yasodhara's fascinating story, and the second part is a 'how-to' readers companion filled with life lessons, practices, and reflections for the modern seeker. Her story provides a relational path, one which speaks directly to our everyday lives and offers a doorway to profound spiritual maturation, awakening, and wisdom beyond the solitary, heroic journey. 112879

27900 Sanatan Bhowal (Author) & Shail Mayaram (Frwd)
The Subaltern Speaks: Truth and Ethics in Mahasweta Devi’s Fiction on Tribals
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8125062793; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 22 Cm 
A study and postmodern critique of Mahasweta Devi’s major fictional writings on tribals, The Subaltern Speaks addresses some primary concerns of Subaltern Studies historians and explores the representation of tribal people as ‘subaltern’.Adivasis today are caught between an aggressive and seemingly benevolent version of capitalism, although the lines between the two have increasingly blurred. British India created formal property rights to replace customary ones; neoliberal India chased them off their land in pursuit of development, dubbed them ‘terrorists’ and unleashed the army’s might against them. Adivasis have only seemed to appear in recorded history when resisting the state, and their ‘consciousness’ has been reduced to this identity along with their politics. The story of adivasi women is far more harrowing.Following Gayatri Spivak’s deconstructive approach, Sanatan Bhowal draws upon some leading thinkers of our time—Badiou, Levinas, Foucault, Deleuze, Lacan and Zizek—to address Spivak’s question: Can the Subaltern Speak? Using this heterogenous assemblage of ideas as a backdrop—in which Badiou's philosophy of truth, resistance and responsibility for the ‘other’ figure prominently—he focuses on Devi’s ethical representation of the adivasis she has loved, lived with and whose cause she has passionately espoused lifelong. He also underlines the need to unthink conventional discourses before any genuine understanding of tribal consciousness can be arrived at.The volume will be of interest to scholars and students of Subaltern Studies, English and Comparative Literature.
