Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2000; 0521394422; Hard Cover; New; New; 
In the past several decades there has been a significant increase in our knowledge of the economic history of the United States. This has come about in part because of the development in economic history, most particularly with the emergence of the statistical and analytical contributions of the new economic history, and in part because of related developments in social, labor, and political history that have important implications for the understanding of economic change. The Cambridge Economic History of the United States has been designed to take full account of new knowledge in the subject, while at the same time offering a comprehensive survey of the history of economic activity and economic change in the United States, and in those regions whose economies have at certain times been closely allied to that of the United States: Canada and the Caribbean.

Rulers of India Babar
Low Price Publications/D.K. Publishers Distributors Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8175363525; Softcover; New; 
The book contains Biography, conquests and administration of prominent Indian Emperors like Babar of the Mughal dynasty.Babar was the first of the Mughal emperors of India.Babar us the link between Central Asia and India, between predatory hordes adn imnperial government, between Tamerlane and Akbar.Babar brought the energy of the Mongol. the courage and capacity of the Turk, to the listless Hindus and himself a soldier of fortune and no architect of empire, he yet laid the first stone of their splendid fabric which hsi grandson Akbar achieved.His permanent place in history rests upon his Indian conquest which opened the way for an imperial line, but his place in biography and in literature is determined rather by his daring adventures and preserving efforts in his ealier days, and by the delightful memoirs in which he related them.On December 26, 1530, he passed away in his beautiful garden palace in Agra-a man of only 48, a king of 36 years-but years crowded with events, with hardships.tumult, and strenous energy. The boy prince who had fought for his heritage long and indomitably with hordes of savage Mongols and Uzbeqs, and only relinqueshed the hope of his ancestral throne after a struggle of 20 years, had at last found the way to a great and nobler empire-whose splendour and ancient glory he had not yet learned to realise-but which he left, a magnificient heirloom, for his grandson Akbar to cherish and enrich.

Mediaeval India: Under Mohammedan Rule (AD 712-1764)
Low Price Publications/D.K. Publishers Distributors Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8175363177; Softcover; New; 
The Mohammedan period of Indian history is an invasion of the Turks into the immemorial systems, rule and customs of Ancient India. The period ends when one of the last of these Muslim rulers, oppressed by of Hindu ascendency, placed himself under English protection and Modern India came into being. Ancient India was too deeply rooted in its traditions to wither even under the storm of the Muslim conquest. The old Indian life survived the shock of the new ideas and it outlived the Muslim period. But little altered in the modern Age of English domination. The history of the Mohammedan period is, therefore, necessarily more a chronicle of kings and courts and conquests than of organic or national growth. As a source it is invaluable, and the present book owes an immense debt of it; indeed, no modern historian of India can afford to neglect it. Printed Pages: 459 with 56 plates & 1 map. 107376

28207 Stanley Lane-Poole (Author) W.W. Hunter (Ed.)
Aurangzib and the Decay of the Mughal Empire
Low Price Publications/D.K. Publishers Distributors Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8175364351; Softcover; New; 
The book contains biography, the conquest and administration of one of the prominent Indian emperors like Aurangzib of the Mughal dynasty.<-p>Akbar was the third in the succession of his dynasty and the first in his genius for government. In that sense, Akbar was the true founder of the Indian Empire of the great Mughals. His realm embraced all the provinces of Hindustan including Afghanistan.<-p>Whereas Aurangzib`s life had been a vast failure, indeed, but he had failed grandly. He pitted his conscience against the world, and the world had triumphed over it. He had marked out a path of duty and had steadfastly pursued it, inspite of its utter impractibility. His glory is for himself alone. The triumph of character ennobled only himself. To his great empire his devoted zeal was an unmitigated curse. Akbar`s dream had failed of its fulfilment. The heroic bigotry of Aurangzib destroyed those bright hopes of tolerant wisdom.<-p>He kept all his sons away, lest they should do even as he had done to his own father. Alone he lived, and alone he had made ready to die. He had all the Puritan`s sense of sin and unworthiness and his morbid creed inspired a terrible dread of death.<-p>Every plan that he formed came to little good; every enterprise failed. The total destruction of the Mughal empire was due to the fact that Aurangzib could not force his soul to desert the colours of the faith.<-p>The book - Aurangzib and the Decay of the Mughal Empire - was originally written by Stanley Lane-Poole, M.A. and subsequently edited by William Wilson Hunter under the title of Rulers of India (Aurangzib). Printed Pages: 212 with 1 fold map. 107315

Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8120802039; Second Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 
Vasubandhu one of the most famous Mahayana Buddhist philosophers wrote works on a vast variety of subjects. this collection of translations includes the Vadavidhi a work on logic the Panca-skandhaka-prakarana which deals with the aggregates making up 'Personality'; the Karmasiddhi prakarana, which in explaining psychic continuity, also attacks many features of earlier Buddhist psychology; the famous Vimsalika and Trimsika, which take Buddhist psychology into hitherto unexplored areas; the Madhyanta-Vibhaga-bhasya, one of the most profound books for Mahayana realization; and the Tri-svabhava-nirdesa which shows a way for ridding consciousness of ensnaring mental constructions. A glossary of key words is included, as are the texts of those works which survive in Sanskrit. Each translation is prefaced by an explanatory introduction and is followed by notes. These include also references to other Indian philosophical systems and occasional comparisons with modern Western psychological systems, particularly where the latter seem inadequate in comparison with Vasubandhu's Yogacara.Printed Pages: 503. 102407

Partitions: Reshaping States and Minds
Routledge; London, UK; 0415348021; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The partition of the Indian subcontinent, the collapse of the Soviet Union and the erstwhile Yugoslavia, the reunification of Germany, the continuing feud between the two Koreas, the Irish peace process, the case of Israel/ Palestine and the lingering division of Cyprus have together fuelled new thinking on the strategy and acts of partitioning countries, states, nations and continuities. They have also given rise to a huge body of literature. However, studies of partitions have usually focused on individual cases. This innovative volume uses comparative analysis to fill the gap in partition studies and examines cross-cutting isses such as: - Violece - Regional politics - Peace politics - Geopoloitics - State formation and state building - Union and regional unification - Transitional strategies - Historical experiences of decolonization and transition Forms of violence and violent transition are worthy of analysis in their own right; the impact of various forms of violence on current politics such as ethnological and territorial conflicts or religious pogroms, is not confined to a locality that witnesses the partition polity - its impact is global. And as there is a strong link between partition, local violence and globalization, there is a real need for cutting-edge comparative framework that goes beyond area-centric readings but is gender sensitive, and sums up the experiences and implications of partitions. Contents Notes on authors Foreword Introduction: the infamous event 1 Partition as a form of transition 2 Partitions: categories and destinies 3 The undefined acts of partition and dialogue 4 The excess of geopolitics: partition of 'British India' Conclusion Index .

Indian Sculpture: Ancient, Classical and Mediaeval
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8120836146; Second Revised Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Anyone with an understanding of art in general and a knowledge, however slight, of Indian things, will, on being shown a work of Indian sculpture, unfailingly label it Indian. Differences in age and origin, however clearly marked to the discerning eye, when pointed out to the outsider, will be apprehended only with more or less difficulty. There is something so strong, and at the same time unique, in any Indian work of art that its 'Indianness' is felt first of all, and what it is, is seen only on second thought. How this Indianness is expressed in terms of relation between line, surface, volume and other elements of visulisation is dealt with in this book. There are permanent qualities throughout the fabric of Indian sculpture which are discussed in detail. These essential qualities, all inter-related and inseparable, contain within their compass the life of Indian plastic art. The book surveys the structure of Indian sculpture in its relevant aspects. The underlying and essential qualities are viewed in their permanency throughout the special conditions that the single monuments imply. Their outward connections, geographical and chronological, are seen to resolve themselves into ethical problems and those of the artistic process itself. While stylistical investigations are the basis of this book, Indian sculpture is dealt with as conditioned by the Indian craftsman. His consciousness makes him known to himself as a part of nature and his work is the form of this 'naturalism'. Its degree and aspects vary according to the levels of his consciousness.

The Hindu Temple is the sum total of architectural rites performed on the basis of its myth. The myth covers the ground and is the plan on which the structure is raised. It explains in detail the religious and spiritual significance of the temple b4y means of copious references to Sanskrit textsóboth sacred and scientific. It depicts the Hindu Temple as not merely a heap of brick, stone or wood but a visible symbol of aspirations of pious men and women, the throbbings of their hearts in religious fervor and their endeavor for the attainment of salvation. The first four parts of this volume are devoted to the philosophy of temple architecture. Part V deals with the origin and development of the temple from the Vedic fire altars to the latest forms. Part VI discusses the pyramidal and curvilinear superstructures in the main varieties of the ›ikhara, the ›ikhara enmeshed in Gavaksas and the composite ›ikhara. Part VII described the proportional measurements and the rhythmic disposition of the garbha-grha and the vertical section. It discusses the proportions of the Mandapa and the types of temples described in the ancient sanskrit texts like the Brhatasmhita and the Samarnganasutradhara. his two-volume work explains in detail the religious and spiritual significance of the temple by means of copious references to Sanskrit texts--both sacred and scientific.

Bashgali Dictionary
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1986; 8121200156; Hardcover; New; New; 
Bashgali is an Indo-European Language of the Kafir group, which retains much of its archaeic features. Therefore, it occupies an important place in Indo-European Philology and deserves full attention of the linguists.Colonel J. Davidson was the first among the European linguists to Study the structure and the vocabulary of the language and compiled a work under title, Notes on the Bashgali language, as early as 1902. The materials contained in his Notes are valuable but could not be much useful for a detailed study of the language.Sten Konow, a renowned scholar of Sanskrit, Prakrit and Indian linguistics, attempted a detailed analysis of the notes of Col. Davidson and organized the material into a dictionary of the Bashgali language which is presented in the following pages. A practical Alphabetical arrangement has been followed in the dictionary which is based on the order of the consonants without any regard to the vowels. The latter came into consideration only in cases when the same consonants are followed or separated by different vowels Under each word, several instances of its use have been recorded with English translation. In the case of nouns, the different cases have been distinguished according to the Grammar. The Verbal Roots have been given a full and Scientific treatment, showing the distinguished forms in Infinitive, Verbal noun. Present participle, Past participle, Present indefinite, different present and past forms, etc. Casual and passive forms have been included at proper places.It is hoped that the publication will prove to be of great Research value to Indo-European linguistics.Printed Pages: 325. 105628

Karpura-Manjari of Raja-Cekhara: A Drama by the Indian Poet Rajacekhara (About 900 A.D.)
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2007; 8120811488; Hardcover; New; New; 
Raja-Cekhara has been highly esteemed for his proficiency in the Prakrit. This volume presents the first critical edition of the only Prakrit Drama extant, for here none of the characters speak Sanskrit. The interest of the play is largely philological, likely to throw light on the linguistic History of India, though, not without its importance for the History of the Indian Drama. It abounds in material which may well engage the attention of the student of Antiquities and Folk-lore. The Sacred Scriptures of the Jaina Religion are written in Prakrt. And, considering the extreme dearth of books for students of that tongue, it is hoped that this volume, in connection with Jacobi's Handbook, may prove highly serviceable as an introduction to the language of that very ancient religion. The chief aim of this edition is a linguistic one and the vocabulary is composed with the aim to serve students learning Prakrt. The Karpura-Manjari Contains four Acts called Javanikantara. It tells us how the king Candapala marries Karpura-Manjari contains four Acts called Javanikantara. It tells us how the king Candapala marries Karpura-manjari, the daughter of the Kuntala King, and thus becomes a paramount sovereign. The jealousy of the queen, and the machinations that bring the king and the heroine together, from the plot of the Play, the Adbhuta Rasa is represented by the sorcerer Bhairvananda and his tricks. It is an earlier play of the poet and was not , like his other plays, acted at the request of the king, but by the wish of the poet's wife Avantisundari.Printed Pages: 314. 102591

Tibetan Medicine Among the Buddhist Dards of Ladakh
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2004; Softcover; New; 
The present study is located at the interface between classical social anthropology and medical anthropology. It takes the case of a traditional medical practitioner as the starting point for an ethnographic analysis of social change in a small community, but then leads back to the medical field by discussing its implications for the local delivery of health care. The study is comprised of three major parts, of which the first outlines and discusses the theoretical approach used in the later analysis. In the second part, the research process and its setting is described, including a short history of the Buddhist Dards in Ladakh . The third part, building on the first two, consists of the analysis of the amchiís social role, together with the oral history sections of the second, that makes use of the empirical data gathered in the field.Printed Pages: 183. 102708

The Ravenous Hyenas and the Wounded Sun: Myth and Ritual in Ancient India
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8121512476; First Indian Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
Vedic Sanskrit literature contains a wealth of material concerning the mythology and religious practices of India between 1500 and 500 B.C.E.—a crucial period in the formation of traditional Indian culture. Stephanie W. Jamison here addresses the conditions that have limited our understanding of Vedic myth and ritual, such as the profusion and obscurity of the texts and the tendency on the part of scholars to approach mythology and ritual independently. Tracing two key myths through a variety of texts, Jamison provides insight into the relationship between early Indic myth and ritual as well as offering a new methodology for their study. After a brief survey of Vedic literature and religion, Jamison examines the recurrences of the myths "Indra fed the Yatis to the hyenas" and "Svarbhanu pierced the sun with darkness." Focusing on their verbal form and ritual setting, she essays a general interpretation of the myths and their ritual purpose. Her book sheds new light on some central figures in Vedic mythology and on the evolution of Vedic mythological narrative, and it points to parallels in other cultures as well. Indologists and other scholars and students of South Asian culture, Indo-Eurepeanists, folklorists, historians of religion, classicists, and comparatists will welcome this rich and suggestive introduction to the Vedic tradition.

The Art of Haiku: Its History Through Poems and Paintings by Japanese Masters
Shambhala; Boston, Massachusetts, USA; 1590308867; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
In the past hundred years, haiku has gone far beyond its Japanese origins to become a worldwide phenomenon—with the classic poetic form growing and evolving as it has adapted to the needs of the whole range of languages and cultures that have embraced it. This proliferation of the joy of haiku is cause for celebration—but it can also compel us to go back to the beginning: to look at haiku’s development during the centuries before it was known outside Japan. This in-depth study of haiku history begins with the great early masters of the form—like Basho, Buson, and Issa—and goes all the way to twentieth-century greats, like Santoka. It also focuses on an important aspect of traditional haiku that is less known in the West: haiku art. All the great haiku masters created paintings (called haiga) or calligraphy in connection with their poems, and the words and images were intended to be enjoyed together, enhancing each other, and each adding its own dimension to the reader’s and viewer’s understanding. Here one of the leading haiku scholars of the West takes us on a tour of haiku poetry’s evolution, providing along the way a wealth of examples of the poetry and the art inspired by it.

"The friendship between Renuka, a Bengali poet, and Rachel, an American missionary, lies at the heart of this novel. Two women from entirely different backgrounds, they share a bond that overcomes the barriers of nationality, race and religion. Both are exiled to a hill station, which is populated with provincial and prudish memsahibs, who adjust their recipes to compensate for the altitude and substitute ingredients from home. While Rachel’s husband works at a psychiatric hospital in the plains, in Ranchi, she looks after their sons who attend a mission school in the hills. While editing a cookbook, Rachel begins to realize the contradictions within her community. She also discovers the seductive voice of Renuka’s poetry… Renuka, Stephen Alter’s fourth novel, builds to a startling climax, while uncovering hidden truths about love, sexuality and passion. ‘In Renuka, Alter has drawn a remarkable portrait of a totally credible woman… he captures exactly the love-hate attitudes of Westerners who spend time in the subcontinent…A rare achievement to use a simple framework so effectively’—Sarah Curtis, Times Literary Supplement ‘Renuka is a most accomplished, utterly convincing study of two women of different backgrounds and contrasting temperaments…The book rises to a moving climax, followed by an adagio of “lingering sadness” like the aftermath of a “disturbing dream”…by far [Alter’s] best’—John Mellors Books by Stephen Alter Renuka Neglected Lives Amritsar to Lahore: Crossing the Border Between India and Pakistan All the Way to Heaven: An American Boyhood in the Himalayas Sacred Waters: A Pilgrimage to the Many Sources of the Ganga Elephas Maximus: A Portrait of the Indian Elephant Fantasies of a Bollywood Love Thief: Inside the World of Indian Moviemaking The Penguin Book of Modern Indian Short Stories (co-edited).

Astrology, Psychology and the Four Elements: An Energy Approach to Astrology and Its Use in the Counseling Arts
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8178223872; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
This recognized classic of modern astrology is truly a pioneering book. It established a new science of astrological psychology. It presents a language of energy that has enabled astrology to be widely and reliably used in the helping professions as well as by the general public. As Library Journal stated, "Transcending the boundaries of separate disciplines, this work represents a major distillation of astrological principles." This book relates astrology to modern psychology and explains the use of astrology as a practical method of understanding one's attunement to universal forces. It clearly shows how to approach astrology with a real understanding of the energies involved. Part 1 of the book explains how astrology can be the most valuable psychological tool for understanding oneself and others. Analyzing the scientific, philosophical, and intuitive dimensions of astrology, it is oriented toward the layman with no astrological knowledge, astrology students and professionals, and those engaged in any form of the counseling arts. Part II deals specifically with the interpretation and practical application of astrological factors based on the actual energies involved (air, fire, water & earth). It presents a dynamic application of astrological knowledge that clarifies and illuminates traditional techniques and meanings by placing them in the perspective of understanding the vital energies inherent in all life processes.Printed Pages: 204. 102625

Magic and Ritual in Tibet: The Cult of Tara
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8120804899; Third Reprint; Softcover; New; 
The real history of man is the history of religion. The truth of the famous dictum of Max Muller, the father of the History of Religions, is nowhere so obvious as in Tibet. Western students have observed that religion and magic pervade not only the forms of Tibetan art, politics, and society, but also every detail of ordinary human existence. And what is the all-pervading religion of Tibet? The Buddhism of that country has been described to us, of course, but that does not mean the question has been answered. The unique importance of Stephan Beyerís work is that it presents the vital material ignored or slighted by others: the living ritual of Tibetan Buddhists. The reader is made a witness to cultic proceedings through which the author guides him carefully. He does not force one to accept easy explanations nor does he direct one's attention only to aspects that can be counted on to please. He leads one step by step, without omitting anything, through entire rituals, and interprets whenever necessary without being unduly obtrusive. Oftentimes, as in the case of the many hymns to the goddess Tara, the superb translations speak directly to the reader, and it is indeed as if the reader himself were present at the ritual.Printed Pages: 563. 102384

The Cambridge Companion to the Gospels
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2006; 0521002613; First Edition; Paperback; Brand New; 228 x 152 Mm 
The four gospels are a central part of the Christian canon of scripture. In the faith of Christians, this canon constitutes a life-giving witness to who God is and what it means to be truly human. This volume treats the gospels not just as historical sources, but also as crucial testimony to the life of God made known in Jesus Christ. This approach helps to overcome the sometimes damaging split between critical gospel study and questions of theology, ethics and the life of faith. The essays are by acknowledged experts in a range of theological disciplines. The first section considers what are appropriate ways of reading the gospels given the kinds of texts they are. The second, central section covers the contents of the gospels. The third section looks at the impact of the gospels in church and society across history and up to the present day. • The contributors include not only New Testament specialists, but also theologians and ethicists • The essays address subjects not usually covered in standard introductions to the gospels, including their impact on Christian lives, spirituality and worship • Interdisciplinary and international, the book will be of interest to an unusually wide audience, including theology students, religious professionals, academics, and theologically literate lay people Contents Introduction Stephen C.

Schopenhauer’s Encounter with Indian Thought: Representation and Will and Their Indian Parallels
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8121512794; First Indian Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
Schopenhauer is widely recognized as the Western philosopher who has shown the greatest openness to Indian thought and whose own ideas approach most closely to it. This book examines his encounter with important schools of Hindu and Buddhist philosophy and subjects the principal apparent affinities to a careful analysis. Initial chapters describe Schopenhauer’s encounter with Indian thought in the context of intellectual climate of early nineteenth-century Europe. For the first time, Indian texts and ideas were becoming available and the belief that they could bring about a second Renaissance—an “Oriental Renaissance”—was widespread. Schopenhauer shared in this enthusiasm and for the rest of his life assiduously kept abreast of the new knowledge of India. Principal sections of the book consider the two main pillars of Schopenhauer’s system in relation to broadly comparable ideas found, in the case of Hindu thought, in Advaita Vedanta, and within Buddhism in the Madhyamika and Yogacara schools. Schopenhauer’s doctrine of the world as representation, or a flow of impressions appearing in the consciousness of living beings, is first considered. The convergence between this teaching and India idealism, especially the doctrine of illusory appearance (maya), has long been recognized. Schopenhauer himself was aware of it, emphasizing that it was the result not of influence but of a remarkable convergence between Eastern and Western thought. This convergence is subjected to a much more detailed examination than has previously been carried out, undertaken in the light of twentieth-century Indology and recent studies of Schopenhauer. The second main pillar of Schopenhauer’s system, the doctrine of the world as will, is then examined and its relationship to Indian thought explored. This section of the work breaks new ground in the study of Schopenhauer, for although the similarity of his ethical and soteriological teaching to that of Indian religions (particularly Buddhism) has long been noted, the underlying reasons for this have not been grasped. It is demonstrated that they are to be found in hitherto unrecognized affinities, of which Schopenhauer himself was largely unaware, between the metaphysics of the will and Indian ideas relating to karmic impressions (vasanas), the store-consciousness, the causal body, and sakti as the “force” or “energy” that maintains the existence of the world. Final chapters discuss the controversial and difficult question of the relation of the will to final reality in Schopenhauer’s thought in the light of Indian conceptions, and suggest that the two central pillars of his philosophy may be seen, to a greater extent than previously supposed, as a bridge by which the Eastern and Western traditions of philosophical thought may be brought into a closer and more creative relationship.

Globalization, Culture, and the Limits of the Market
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2003; 0195664469; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Part of the prestigious Themes in Economics series, this collection of papers discusses critical issues that have often been at the centre of social debates in recent years. Economists and philosophers discuss such issues as the limitations of markets as an instrument of decision-making in a society, globalization and culture, the foundational principles for public policy, the criteria for the allocation of human organs, and the paradox of scarcity despite affluence in modern societies. Two papers study the implication of globalization for culture and the nature of culture itself. The rest of the papers analyse a wide range of other problems including the foundational principles for the formulation of public policy, the criteria for allocating human organs among patients who need them, and the way in which modernity has generated scarcity even as advanced technology has led to unprecedented affluence. The papers combine analytical rigour and readability. While they are always thoug ht provoking and often incisive, they do not demand from the reader much prior knowledge of either economics or philosophy. With contributions from eminent academicians such as Richard Arneson, Ravi Kanbur, Paul Seabright, and Steve Marglin, the book will be very useful for post graduate students of economic thought and courses exploring the interface of economics and philosophy researchers and teachers in these areas professional economists, philosophers and serious general readers interested in social issues.

The Origin of Man and His Culture
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1983; 8121501431; First Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
The book is meant to give a concise yet full introduction to the physical origin of man and the early history of his culture. In it Anthropology is treated as a historical discipline, since the course of cultural development is to a large extent subject to man's will and creativity. But the functional, sociological and psychological methods of dealing with the whole range of Anthropological data are thereby not rejected or ignored. The book tries to show how primitive peoples, arrested at various stages of cultural development since prehistoric times, give us a more or less adequate picture of the ways and phases of human development and cultural progress. A further merit of this book is that it tries, wherever possible, to furnish illustrations from Indian sources for its general theories. Thus Indian students of Anthropology have the opportunity of acquiring a knowledge of the general principles of the discipline and at the same time a sound knowledge of the peoples and cultures of India; whereas foreign text-books so far largely in use on Indian universities tend to ignore the Indian evidence. The exposition has been kept as lucid as possible without unnecessary resort to technical jargon so that both students of the subject as well as the general reader may derive the maximum benefit from reading about the origin of man and the development of his culture.

At the Bottom of Indian Society: The Harijan and Other Low Castes
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1981; 8121502055; First Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
In recent years the Harijan problem has become very acute in India's social and political life. The problem of caste and untouchability has been discussed from various viewpoints, not always with due impartiality and a thorough knowledge of the facts. It gives a new explanation for the origin of caste and untouchability, dating it back to the pre-Indian past of the Aryans and Dravidians. It contributes greatly to a better knowledge of the Harijans by a short description and characterisation of all the individual Harijan castes throughout India. Such a study had never been undertaken before. This study of the Harijans has enabled the author to arrive at new conclusion hitherto rarely mentioned in the literature on caste and untouchability: 1. The problem of untouchability originated among the high castes. Therefore, for the abolition of untouchability, the high-castes must be tackled first. They must be convinced that untouchability is to their own economic and social disadvantage. So far reformers have attacked the problem at the wrong end: by trying to "uplift" the Harijans. No wonder they failed. 2. The Indian high-castes are not consistent in linking untouchability with certain "impure" occupations. The stigma of untouchability is attached to certain trades in one region, while in other regions workers in the same trade are not excluded from the Hindu fold. 3. Various trades, ritually pure and impure, are closely connected in Indian economy. This explains why certain trades, though apparently ritually pure, yet can be carried out only by untouchables. The conclusions presented in the present book may have important practical implications for the abolition of untouchability and thus for the solution of a national problem which causes so much political unrest and untold suffering to vast masses of the Indian population, at the same time blackening the fair image of the Indian nation in the world.

Godmen on the Warpath: A Study of Messianic Movements in India

Ever since the highly civilised powers took it in mind, to "colonise" primitive peoples and to "uplift" them culturally, their efforts, even if well intended, turned disastrous for the colonised. The actual results were wholesale oppression and exploitation, even physical annihilation. The surviving primitive peoples usually suffered a complete break-down of their original culture and a total confusion of their traditional values. But after a certain time the colonised peoples felt the desires for a revival of their pristine way of life-the old traditional values asserted themselves. Yet due to their predominantly magical world-outlook this revitalisation often took an esoteric turn. It also required a leader allegedly possessed with superhuman powers and in close contact with the ancestors or old gods-a Messiah or Saviour. Such revival movements arose all over the world wherever high civilisations clashed with primitive cultures. It is to the credit of the author of Godmen on the Warpath, to have discovered numerous such "messianic" movements in India and to have described them here. Another important and eminently practical result of the author's analysis of such movements is that he convincingly proves that wherever their leaders were able to guide their followers to a gradual and peaceful amalgamation of the new with the original beliefs and practices of the colonised peoples they were largely successful. But here the godmen yielded to the temptation to liberate their people by violent means, they generally were defeated, with disastrous consequences for their people. Printed Pages: 348. 002598

Ghost Plane: The Inside Story of the CIA's Secret Rendition Programme
Hurst & Company; London, UK; 1850658501; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
In December 2005, Condoleeza Rice, the US Secretary of State, assured the world that the flights of CIA private jets that have crisscrossed Europe since 9/11 had no role in sending prisoners to be tortured.. 'The United States has not transported anyone, to a country when we believe he will be tortured,' she said. Tony Blair assured Parliament: ' I have absolutely no evidence to suggest that anything illegal has been happening here at all.' But as Stephen Grey reveals in Ghost Plane, Rice's claims were a falsehood - and the British government has also turned a blind eye to a CIA operation that systematically outsources the harsh interrogation of its captives. Grey reveals how the agency's programme, known by the euphemism Printed Pages: 319. 027072

Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8120833325; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Tattvacintamani, or Jewel of Reflection on the Truth (about Epistemology), is the sole composition left us by the great fourteenth century Indian logician Gangesa Upadhyaya. With this foundational text Gangesa solidified the "New" (navya) phase of the long-running school of epistemology and metaphysics known in India as Nyaya. The Present work is a translation of the perception chapter (Pratyaksa-khanda) of this important text. The authors have provided an introduction covering essential theoretical and historical background, and a comparison of Nyaya with Western epistemological traditions. The translation is augmented with a detailed running commentary which presents further background, contextualization, analysis, and comparison. Includes a glossary explaining in English every Sanskrit word used, brief characterizations of persons and schools, and a detailed Index.Printed Pages: 723. 102140

Human Evolution and Christian Ethics (New Studies in Christian Ethics: 28)
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2007; 0521863406; First Edition; Hardcover; Brand New; Brand New; 228 x 152 Mm 
Can the origins of morality be explained entirely in evolutionary terms? If so, what are the implications for Christian moral theology and ethics? Is the latter redundant, as socio-biologists often assert? Stephen Pope argues that theologians need to engage with evolutionary theory rather than ignoring it. He shows that our growing knowledge of human evolution is compatible with Christian faith and morality, provided that the former is not interpreted reductionistically and the latter is not understood in fundamentalist ways. Christian ethics ought to incorporate evolutionary approaches to human nature to the extent that they provide helpful knowledge of the conditions of human flourishing, both collective and individual. From this perspective, a strong affirmation of human dignity and appreciation for the theological virtues of faith, hope and charity is consistent with a revised account of natural law and the cardinal virtues. • Argues that Christians must give serious attention to evolutionary theories of morality and altruism • Offers a critical but sympathetic reading of secular accounts of evolutionary ethics and sociobiology • Suggests that Christian ethics and evolutionary theories are complementary rather than mutually exclusive Contents Preface; 1. Evolution and religion; 2. The indifference of Christian ethics to human evolution; 3. Varieties of reductionism; 4. Faith, creation and evolution; 5. Chance and purpose in evolution; 6. Human nature and the human good; 7. Freedom and responsibility; 8. Human dignity and common descent; 9. Christian love and evolutionary altruism; 10. The natural roots of morality; 11.

North East Indian Linguistics
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2008; 8175966009; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 165 x 250 Mm 
The North East of India is one of the most rich and diverse cultural-linguistic regions of Asia. However, awareness of this is not widespread and as a result, the linguistic abundance of the region has not been sufficiently appreciated. Students and scholars from different parts of India and the world are now making efforts to turn around this scenario. North East Indian Linguistics is a result of such concerted attempts. This book is the first published collection of selected articles on North East Indian linguistics. The articles represent the current state of research in the field. The authors have adopted a variety of approaches to the study of the multifarious North East Indian languages – Ao (Naga), Assamese, Atong (Bodo-Garo), Bishnupriya, Garo, Khamti (Tai), Khasi, Kurtoep, Singpho, and the Tani languages, Apatani, Galo and Mising. The areas addressed in this book include descriptive phonology, lexicon, morphosyntax and semantics. The book also discusses general topics regarding fieldwork and orthography development. North East Indian Linguistics will be of interest to students, scholars and professionals in South and South East Asian linguistics and related fields, particularly to those involved in the study of languages of Austro-Asiatic, Indo-Aryan and Tibeto-Burman stock. The book will also benefit those with a concern for minority and endangered languages, and cultures. Contents Introduction Foreword Phonology 1. Kurtöp Phonology in the Context of North East India 2.

Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts/Mapin Publishing; New Delhi, India; 1996; 8185822093; Hardcover; New; New; 
Clay is essential to Indian culture, past and present. It is accessible everywhere; it takes form with very little effort; and its fragility assures its constant renewal . It has been the perfect vehicle for Indian creativity throughout the ages. The shapes and styles of items made of clay, both fired and unfired,are innumerable. They comprise everything from the minuscule to the gigantic, from simple to highly ornate, from realistic to abstract, from purely practical to utterly fantastic. Many of the potters who make them act dual roles as craftsman and as links to god.In a text sumptuously illustrated in colour, the author and photographer, Stephen P.Huyler, surveys the exciting craft through examples from all over India. he documents for the first time contemporary potters: their techniques and production, and the use of clay in the households and temples today, exploring comparison of today's products with those of ancient India.

Vyakarana Mahabhasya of Patanjali on Panini 3.1 (Ahnikas 1 to 6): Text, Translation with Introduction and Technical Notes
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8120834445; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
At the heart of Panini's great Astadhyayi lies the concept of pratyaya, being by far the largest adhikara sutra, governing the three central adhyayas of the Astadhyayi and virtually half the sutras. This in itself bears witness to the importance of the concept in language. Indeed it has been said that to understand the Word, one needs first to understand the relation between the stem which is known and pratyaya which is unknown but joins the stem to bring forth the meaning of the whole Word. This book contains a comprehensive treatment of pratyaya including its etymology, pre-Paninian and post-Paninian attestations, and a thorough analysis of different categories of Pratyayas in the Astadhyayi. The translation of the six Ahnikas of the Bhasya which cover the first section of the third chapter is more literal and faithful to the text. Dr. Thompson has added critical notes which are very useful to understand the text and its context. At the end there is an attempt to uplift the linguistic notion of pratyaya to a higher spiritual level.Printed Pages: 678. 102570

Stephen Roach on The Next Asia: Opportunities and Challenges for s New Globalization
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8126526211; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
In the end, we are all products of the roads we travel. In the case of Stephen Roach, it's been the global road. He has criss-crossed the world as Morgan Stanley's first global economist, and most recently his journeys have increasingly led to Asia, at first because of events, but ultimately as a reflection of the allure and intrigue of this incredibly dynamic region for global investors. The global macro call--both for economies and financial markets -- became increasingly dependent on Asia. And getting Asia right has become Roach's personal obsession. This book represents more than 50 of Roach's key research papers, not just on Asia, but also how the region fits into the broad global context of the globalization of investing and financial markets around the world.Printed Pages: 432. 104841
