A Beginning to an End: Darimbari
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789381904350; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
An era, when the flavour of British rule was still strong upon our palates. Maharajas and beautiful Maharanis were still not yet tales of the yore...a new breed of men had emerged...the office babus, clad in crisp dhoti and kurta with a flair for British English. Beral babu a clerk in a discrete bank was well settled into an uncomplicated and confortable life. His wife Binodini, sweet natured and ever accommodating...her whole life revolved around serving others and making her husband happy. Life for them was like the calm surface of a village pond...no ripples...no disturbances but for a bunch of ghosts who decide otherwise. Destiny changed hands one afternoon when a bond of friendship blossomed and this opened portals into the lives of the royal Raibahadurs. Lady Sreelatas horse is spooked by a dark mysterious figure. The Berals alone leave for Darimbari. They are received by Patta Nath and the fierce Khan. The majestic war horse Nestor draws the royal carriage to the Grande Hindol Kothi. The Maharaja and the beautiful Maharani of Darimbari welcome them with open arms. Binodini enters the maze to bring back sacred water from the fountain of Gautama, this saves the Maharanis life. Beral babu leaves on a quest with the handsome and dashing prince...to save the elder prince who had been kidnapped long ago by the demons of the underworld. Dolly D. a sharp shooting reporter is hot on the trails of the mysterious disappearances from the train; she knows somehow that these are connected to the world famous writer. Investigations by the DCP Avinash Bakshi reveal nothing except for the puzzling photos on Dollys camera. On such dark nights they say, the train still screeches to a halt...footsteps are heard and passengers are known to disappear. As for Beral babu and Binodini both of them display such courage and wisdom beyond extraordinaire. Fame, wealth and immortality were just rewards for their good deeds. What they actually earned as experience from their friends beyond this mortal world...changed their world forever.Printed Pages: 172. 104323

Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0143103768; First Edition; Paperback; New; 13 x 20 Cm 
A story of how money corrupts the way people look at one another and how it can almost tear a family apart Vinuta marries Girish, a bank clerk, and starts living with his family in Bangalore. She adjusts to her new family well, looking after her husband, father-in-law and mother-in-law Gouramma, not taking to heart her mother-in-law’s constant picking. But when Girish’s elder brother Chandru, who is in the US, decides to get married, Vinuta has to listen to the constant comparisons made between her and Chandru’s wife, the ‘Dollar Bahu’, whose husband earns the valuable dollars that has brought the family its recent affluence. Vinuta slowly loses her peace of mind and health. Then Gouramma decides to visit her US-based son and daughter-in-law. Once there, she sees how liberating life can be, away from the strict norms that govern Indian middle-class life. But she also begins to understand that mere dollars cannot buy the love and respect that she gets as her due back in India. Does Gouramma forge a new relationship with Vinuta and can Vinuta forgive and forget the past? Printed Pages: 152. 020907

Shrimati and Shrikant are neighbours and star students of their school in the small north Karnataka town of Hubli. It leaves no one in surprise when they come first and second respectively in the final Board exams. Soon Shrikant discovers he is strangely attracted to Shrimati, a plain-looking yet charming person, who always does better than him in the exams. Shrimati too falls in love with the amiable and handsome Shrikant and the two get married. Shrikant joins an IT company and starts rapidly climbing the corporate ladder. He works relentlessly and reaches the pinnacle of his industry, while Shrimati abandons her academic aspirations and becomes his uncomplaining shadow, silently fulfilling her duties as a corporate leader’s wife. But one day, while talking to an old professor, she starts examining what she has done with her life and realizes it is dismally empty . . . Gently Falls the Bakula is the story of a marriage that loses its way as ambition and self-interest take their toll. Written nearly three decades ago, Sudha Murty’s first novel remains startlingly relevant in its scrutiny of modern values and work ethics. Printed Pages: 176. 021393

Revisiting 1956: B. R. Ambedkar and States Reorganisation
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8125055142; Hardcover; New; New; 
When the Indian identity was in its embryo, he feared that fostering cultural identities would result in separate nationalities. By 1953, after the formation of Andhra State, he pointed at the lack of proper thinking that had gone into the merger. In 1956, when the States Reorganisation Commission submitted its report, he identified its flaws, and famously laid down his ‘One state, one language’ principle.The speeches, tracts and articles that Ambedkar produced on these lines were soon forgotten. And now, as new states are being formed, Ambedkar’s works find renewed relevance. When he called the merger of Telangana and Telugu-speaking areas of Madras Presidency as ‘artificial’, Ambedkar showed remarkable vision that administrators can learn from. In laying criteria for reorganisation of states—viability, size, economic feasibility, equality, federal balance, and the divisive issue of language—he has already addressed concerns that the contemporary common man now asks.Printed Pages: 256. 101933

Proto-Historic Pottery of Indus Valley Civilisation: Study of Painted Motifs
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8124600309; Hardcover; New; New; 
In the 1920s was found one of the world’s oldest, most mysterious civilizations: the Indus Valley. Which, in view of the relatively more recent archaeological evidence, could possibly have evolved from a much older, indigenous culture: of about nine millennia ago — some 6000 years before the growth of Mesopotamian urbanism or about 2000 years before the Egyptian’s. Among a variety of excavated material remains, pottery affords a significant clue that influences archaeologists’ conclusions.Despite many a scholar’s avowed fascination for the pottery of the Indian subcontinent — since John Marshall’s days, Dr. Satyawadi’s book becomes the first-ever, exclusive study of its art motifs: from the earliest times to 1750 bc Marshalling a whole diversity of painted-pottery motifs: from potsherds, from excavatory reports, and from as many as twenty archaeological museums of India, it explores the genesis of popular themes/forms and how they developed from their most primitive character to mature Harappan period — with sharp focus on their creative purpose, stylistic/formal variants and their spatial-temporal parameters. Also surveying extensively the painted pottery of Indus Valley: of both pre- and post-Harappan cultures, the author painstakingly classifies art motifs into their different genres: religious, ritualistic, decorative, superstitious, and personal. And into their different forms too, like geometrical, floral, faunal, other.In her effort to probe the beginnings of pre-Harappan pottery motifs, the artist in Dr. Satyawadi visualizes their continuity not only in mature Harappan cultures, but even in contemporary folk and tribal art of India: almost in their pristine, primitive form -- keeping alive, from generation to generation, an insistent, inherently powerful tradition, despite the ravages of time. The author also tries to trace the linkages between the painted motifs (on pottery) of Indus Valley and other old-world cultures, notably, Mesopotamian, Egyptian, Afghan, Iranian, and Baluchi.With one hundred thirty six photographic reproductions, this study is supplemented by over 650 line-drawings which, (all beautifully copied by the author herself straight from museum exhibits), try to capture the panorama of protohistoric art motifs in their essential variety and pristine splendour.

The Heritage of Buddhist Pala Art
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8173052395; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 22 Cms x 28 Cms 
Buddhist art was not created primarily for aesthetic considerations. Most of the works of art were devoted to the revealing of the divine personality of the gods and goddesses. The present book attempts to present a sketch of Buddha's life as well as well-known and important gods and goddess as represented in the art of eastern India of which the Pala art was an important product. The present study will, it is hoped, unfold many unknown facts of Pala art to students of art. Besides, some of the regional factors are found determining the art forms of the extensive region of eastern India where the Pala art made itself felt in a big way. An impetus was given to new iconographic forms which influenced the Buddhist art of the neighbouring countries such as Nepal and also beyond, like Kashmir. Wherever possible, the degrees of correspondence between the textual descriptions and iconic representations have been duty noted. The Heritage of Buddhist Pala Art, is thus an important step towards iconographic studies, is an expression of author's concern and appreciation for the traditional indigenous art. These works of art, devotion and faith, though deprived of their immediate context, make a significant contribution to the field of sculptural art of the last phase of Buddhist art in India. How passionately the author is involved in the subject, is clear from this book which gives a deep insight into his pursuits. His detailed observations of progression in the creation of Buddhist works of art and richly/profusely illustrated plates help one to understand, recognize and experience them as the masterpieces of art and also as objects of everyday worship. The book is an attempt to explore new images, new forms and new icons and also understand them in their proper time and space contexts - pan-Indian and regional as well as pre-Pala scenario. Students, scholars and general readers will find this remarkable book of immense use. Printed Pages: 317 with illustrations. 002884

Mira and the Mahatma
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2004; 067005805X; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
It is 1925 and India's struggle for independence is in disarray, impeded by factionalism among its leaders and rising incidents of communal disharmony across the country. Meanwhile, having withdrawn himself from active politics, the Mahatma is in the Sabarmati ashram in Gujarat, immersed in what he considers the most important undertaking of his life: the creation of an ideal community that is dedicated to the highest standards of self-discipline, tolerance and austerity. Into this world comes Madeline Slade, the daughter of a British admiral, who has set her heart on being Bapu's greatest disciple. Thus begins an extraordinary association between two individuals driven by distinct passions. For Gandhi, true spirituality lies in `self-rule'—a mastery of the self that liberates the being from all forms of craving, physical and emotional—and total dedication to practical work in service of society; Mira, as Gandhi renames Madeline, believes that the path to ultimate truth and perfection is complete surrender to the human embodiment of the Eternal Spirit, and this she perceives in Gandhi himself. It is not long before Mira's all-consuming desire to serve Bapu translates into a desperate need to be close to him at all times and clashes head on with the exacting moral and spiritual codes he has laid down for himself and those around him. And as the self-doubting Mahatma, seeking to distance himself from Mira yet loath to let go of her love, wrestles with his inner phantoms, Mira's life begins to take another dramatic turn... In his bold, fictionalized exploration of this complex and tumultuous relationship, Sudhir Kakar displays once again his skill at handling delicate material with remarkable sensitivity, instinctive empathy and high imagination.

It is not long before Mira's all-consuming desire to serve Bapu translates into a desperate need to be close to him at all times and clashes head on with the exacting moral and spiritual codes he has laid down for himself and those around him. And as the self-doubting Mahatma, seeking to distance himself from Mira yet loath to let go of her love, wrestles with his inner phantoms, Mira's life begins to take another dramatic turn... In his bold, fictionalized exploration of this complex and tumultuous relationship, Sudhir Kakar displays once again his skill at handling delicate material with remarkable sensitivity, instinctive empathy and high imagination.

Indian Love Stories
Lotus/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8174362797; Softcover; New; 
An anthology of contemporary love stories that depicts how disgust can be as much part of erotic love as violence, physical and mental.Disgust can be as much part of erotic love as violence, although the evocation of disgust has rarely reached the extremes portrayed in the fiction of Marquis de Sade. In de Sade's stories, erotic unions are routinely preceded, accompanied or followed by the smearing and eating of faeces, drinking of or bathing in urine, the licking of spit and vomit, a revelling in bodily odours -all in the service of heightening the excitement of erotic union. Violence, too, physical or mental, is part of many contemporary depictions of love. (From the author's Introduction. Printed Pages: 128. 108539

Comparative Politics and Crisis of Governance: The Russian Conundrum
Vij Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2011; 9789380177663; Hardcover; New; New; 
Democracy as a political system, its creation and evolution and implications on the people and the states has been the dominant subject matter of the comparative politics in the last five decades. The litmus test of such explanations has been the societies undergoing political transition, switching over from authoritarian political systems to democratic ones. This book is an attempt to critically analyze the theories which have come up in the case of post-Soviet states’ political transition began after the collapse of the Soviet Union. The book argues that democratization should be seen as a broader phenomenon with the objective of building an equal and just social order. Secondly, the dilemma of explaining democracy in theory and in practice can be better explained with the analysis of the nature of state i.e. who governs and how. Thirdly, the nature of any state should be measured on the principles of democratic governance. Here three major indicators of democratic governance have been selected: participation, transparency, and accountability. Analysing Russia within this research framework the book argues that despite having all the capabilities to be a strong state the Russian state has been facing acute crisis of governance being reflected in violent separatist movements, violation of constitutional laws and increasing crime rate. A major reason behind the crisis of governance in Russia is the lack of application of principles of democratic governance at various levels of transition: from the constitution making process to implementation of welfare and other public policies.Printed Pages: 176. 103205

Disinvestment in India: Policies, Procedures, Practices
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2004; 076199825X; First Edition; Cloth; New; New; 5.5" x 8.5" 
In India the path chosen to reform the public sector has been to first deregulate and liberalise the economy and then to privatise public sector enterprises. Debates have raged on since then on: whether reform of state-owned enterprises is necessary; the choice of strategy and method; and the social and economic consequences of such policies. Sudhir Naib has incisively analysed, from a theoretically informed perspective, crucial aspects of this topical issue. Among the important aspects he discusses are: - Whether the failure of Indian public enterprises has been exaggerated. - Can public enterprises be reformed from within or are they intrinsically inefficient? - Is a change in ownership the only solution? - Impact of ownership and competition on the efficiency of Indian enterprises. - Methods of privatisation and the experience of other countries. - Impact of divestiture on performance of disinvested enterprises. Dr Naib provides a firm-level analysis through case studies of seven partly disinvested enterprises (SAIL, BHEL, IOC, ITI, BEL, BEML, NFL). Impact of post-reform policies on enterprises is analysed in terms of changes in market share, cost structure, profitability and work culture. The strategic response of these enterprises is examined in terms of cost reduction measures, change in product portfolio, restructuring, innovation and institutional arrangement for diagnosing environmental changes.

Leela was scorned and thrown away like a fly from a glass of milk by a villainous, greedy and a selfish Menon. She vents her fury on him by seeking the ultimate revenge a woman can come up with. A story told by a fiend who is first just a witness to the bizarre goings-on between Leela and her divorced husband, but later becomes a part of the dirty quagmire. Both of them take recourse to tantriks, plot murders that don't work, and in the end an exasperated and frustrated Leela takes an unheard of course. The friend initially looks on in an indifferent and uninterested way at a marriage gone wrong. But he too is drawn into the drama as both sides dangle the ultimate bribe - money. His scruples are thrown to the winds as the lure of filthy lucre traps him in the web woven by a scheming Leela. Printed Pages: 175. 108481

28552 Sudhir Venkatesh
Gang Leader for a Day
Allen Lane; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0713999942; First Edition; Paperback; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
When naïve sociology student Sudhir Venkatesh went to find out more about urban poverty in Chicago, the last thing he expected was to be held hostage by a gang. And he never guessed that, after being released, he’d want to return to find out more about them, ignoring everyone’s advice and entering a dangerous world beyond anything he’d ever experienced. In the Robert Taylor Homes projects on Chicago’s South Side, Sudhir befriends J.T., a gang leader for the Black Kings. As their friendship grows, he slowly gains J.T.’s trust, until one day, in order to convince Sudhir of his own CEO-like qualities, J.T. makes him leader of the gang. Deciding who cleans up the buildings after a party gets out of hand is one thing, but what do you do when Billy says that Otis lied about how much crack he sold, and somebody needs to be punished? What’s more, why does J.T. make his henchmen, the ‘shorties’, stay in school? When will T-Bone (in charge of gang security, takes his job very seriously) intervene in a mob lynching? Just who does C-Note have to pay if he wants to carry on washing cars? What is the difference between a ‘regular’ hustler and a ‘hype’ – and is Peanut telling him the truth about which she is? Why is Moochie sleeping with Ms Bailey, the all-powerful president of the building, thirty years his senior? And, when the FBI finally starts cracking down on the Black Kings, is it time to get out – or is it too late? Incredibly funny, and heartbreaking, this is a story of one man’s commitment really to cross the line, to understand how the people he is studying live day to day. What he doesn’t expect is to become part of their lives. Printed Pages: 320. 024151

armed patriotism. Unlike 1857, this struggle was not a shortlived intense, violent upheaval that could be savagely subdued. India was patient and determined for a longhaul struggle. This captivating work brings a large part of this fascinating period back to life. It records, in a single canvas, complex strands of events beginning with the 1877 grand Durbar at Delhi, to the eve of Indian Provincial Elections in 1936. It chronicles the sacrifice of the revolutionaries, political challenge by the Swarajya Party, mass movements led by Gandhi, identity politics of Jinnah, British strategy of ‘divide and rule’ to frustrate the Indian aspirations, and finally Congress’s submission into participating in the 1936 elections. A second part of this narration in Volume II begins from 1937, where we leave the reader in this book.It describes the culmination of this grand movement in the midnight of 15 August 1947 and the legacy that the new India inherited. 107198

Vitasta Publishing Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789382711438; Hardcover; New; New; 
The awakening of the average Indian and his conscious strivings to have his voice heard resumed not long after the Mutiny of 1857. It was suppressed by the Raj with iron hands. The native response grew hard and more organised—ranging from Pheroze Mehta’s constitutional pleas to Tilak’s bold demand for ‘swaraj’ and from Gandhi’s idealistic nonviolence to Bose’s armed patriotism. Unlike 1857, this struggle was not a shortlived intense, violent upheaval that could be savagely subdued. India was patient and determined for a longhaul struggle. This captivating work brings a large part of this fascinating period back to life. It chronicles the sacrifice of the revolutionaries, political challenge by the Swarajya Party, mass movements led by Gandhi, identity politics of Jinnah and British strategy of ‘divide and rule’. Part II of this book opens in 1937 when the undercurrent of tension among European nations came to the surface and the rivalry between imperialism and fascism began to enter into the discourse of Indian political parties too. The engrossing work records the dilemma of the Congress in supporting British war efforts and upholding Gandhian nonviolence at the same time. Subhas Bose’s unfaltering quest for an undivided India’s independence shines through amidst unprecedented chaos. The book goes on to narrate the long procrastinated Quit India Movement and the heroic accounts of the INA. It exposes how the nervous British, hastening to leave India, play their malicious diplomatic ‘end game’ in dividing the country with tacit endorsement of native politicians. The book ends by describing Indian independence in the midst of partition and fratricidal bloodshed, while the youngest nation refused to be overwhelmed by formidable adversities, aspiring to take its rightful place in the comity of nations! 107199

The Imaginary Institution of India: Politics and Ideas
Orient BlackSwan/Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8178243571; Softcover; New; 
Sudipta Kaviraj has long been recognized as among India_ ?s most thoughtful and wide-ranging political thinkers and analysts, and one of the subtlest and most learned writers on Indian politics in recent times. Paradoxically, this has remained something of a state secret, because Kaviraj_ ?s writings on these subjects have remained scattered in learned journals, many of which remain difficult to access. So the present volume fills a most important gap in the literature on politics and political thought in South Asia. Among Kaviraj_ ?s many strengths is his quite exceptional ability to position Indian politics within the frameworks of political philosophy in the West alongside perspectives from Indian history and indigenous political thought. The writings collected here range over a wide terrain, including studies of the peculiar nature of Indian democracy; the specificities of the regimes of Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi; political culture in Independent India; the construction of colonial power; the relationship between state, society, and discourse in India; the structure of nationalist discourse; language and identity formation in Indian contexts; the relation of development with democracy and democratic functioning; and the interface of religion, politics, and modernity in South Asia. This volume will be indispensable for every student and scholar of South Asian politics, history, and sociology. Printed Pages: 328. 101990

Orient BlackSwan/Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8178243520; Softcover; New; 
Sudipta Kaviraj has long been recognized as among India’s most thoughtful and wide-ranging political thinkers and analysts, one of the subtlest and most learned writers on Indian politics. Ironically, this has remained something of a state secret because Kaviraj’s writings are scattered and not easy to acess as a connected body. So the present volume—like its predecessor The Imaginary Institution of India—fills a vital gap in South Asian political thought. Among Kaviraj’s many strengths is his exceptional ability to position Indian politics within the frameworks of Western political philosophy alongside perspectives from indigenous political thought. In order to understand relations between the state and social groups, or between dominant and subaltern communities, Kaviraj says it is necessary to first historicize the study of Indian politics. Deploying the historical method, he looks at the precise character of Indian social groups, the nature of political conflicts, the specific mechanisms of social oppression, and many related issues.Printed Pages: 290. 101991

Civil Society: History and Possibilities
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 8175961082; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Civil society is one of the most used - and abused - concepts in current political thinking. In this important collection of essays, the concept is subjected to rigorous analysis by an international team of contributors, all of whom seek to encourage the historical and comparative understanding of political thought. The volume is divided into two parts : the first section analyses the meaning of civil society in different theoretical traditions of western philosophy. In the second section, contributors consider the theoretical and practical contexts in which the notion of civil society has been invoked in Asia, Africa and Latin America. These essays demonstrate how an influential Western idea like civil society is itself altered and innovatively modified by the specific contexts of intellectual and practical life in the societies of the South. Contents Part I. Theoretical Traditions in the West: 1. The development of civil society Sunil Khilnani 2. Concepts of civil society in pre-modern Europe Anthony Black 3.

Oceans and the Future of the Human Race
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2016; 9789380222875; Softcover; New; 
We have lived with the Oceans and utilized its services since time immemorial. We are drawn to the sea, for the coasts offer many benefits to local communities. Indeed we don't need to live near the beach to be connected to the Ocean. Oceans, a critical player in the basic elements we need to survive, affect our lives every day in various ways, around the world. Ocean plants produce half of the world's oxygen we breathe. The single Ocean (with its many named parts) harbors an enormous amount of the planet's biodiversity; it's the largest habitat on Earth, yet we know so little about it. The Oceans cover 71 per cent of the Earth's surface and contain 97 per cent of the planet's water. Logically, our planet is misnamed – it should be called Planet Ocean and not Planet Earth. No matter what we say about it, there is always that which we can't. The influence of the vast Oceans on the Human Race is a fascinating subject for analysis and insights derived from intellectual inquiry. This diverse and complex subject necessarily requires a blending of knowledge from different disciplines. Human well-being as it relates to the condition of the Oceans spread across the globe and its nexus with social issues is very much part of the Human Race. Very basic and simple concerns relate to food and nutrition that are derived on a large scale from the Ocean resources. The history of the world has itself been shaped essentially by the ability of the Human Race to master transportation across the Oceans and the ability to access and utilize a range of resources from marine structures, including hydrocarbons, minerals and a wealth of other resources, which in a variety ways have become a part of daily human existence. Oceans can also take lives. Coastal civilizations can be wiped out as is witnessed in many ancient parables, myths and religions. It means, Oceans are, at the same time, both master and servant to the Human Race. Unfortunately, today we are also altering, at an unprecedented rate, the relatively stable relationships that we have lived with in relation to the Oceans. Serious threats to all forms of life have also been imposed by other human actions that have led to serious problems of pollution. What the great majority of people do not understand is that it threatens the survival and thus the future of the entire Human Race. We are also running out of time. How can a balance be achieved between conservation and exploitation of marine resources? Is development towards sustainable use of marine resources possible? Our security, our economy, our very survival – all require healthy Oceans. We must look after Oceans if we are to look after humanity. This book is written in a lucid and very readable style, and provides a wealth of knowledge and insightful analysis, which is a rare amalgam of multidisciplinary perspectives and unique lines of intellectual inquiry. The only aim of the author is to direct the world attention to the Oceans. As land creatures we tend to think primarily in terms of land; Oceans remain out of sight, out of mind. In most national capital cities where decisions are made, Oceans do not figure in day-to-day activities so funding is much harder to come by. In this respect this book is of great value, and it will appeal as much to a non-specialist reader as it would to specialists in the diverse but interconnected subjects covered by this volume.

Discourses on Aging and Dying
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0761936440; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
The inevitability of aging and dying doesn`t make accepting and adjusting to their truths any easier. This collection of essays probes these truths from various angles: philosophical, religious, socio-ethical and medical. Discourses on Aging and Dying is a topical book—it comes at a time when, on the one hand, the world is witnessing an increase in the percentage of the aged population, and, on the other, traditional practices of caring for the aged are being replaced by more impersonal, state-driven methods. This well organized discourse explores philosophical traditions—Hindu, Buddhist and Islamic perspectives—to explain the concept of life and death, and offers strategies for coping with aging and dying. It then delves into the socio-ethical issues related to these in the Indian context—India, with its huge population, poor bio-medical facilities and the radically changing attitudes towards the aged, is facing a crisis. The final section of the book addresses a pressing problem confronting Indian society: end-of-life care. Printed Pages: 272. 028697

Nursing and Empire: Gendered Labor and Migration from India to the United States
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8125062300; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
Drawing on extensive archival research and compelling life-history interviews, Nursing and Empire examines the lives of Indian nurses, which have unfolded against a complex backdrop of Anglo-American capitalist imperialism and the emergence of a postcolonial Indian nation-state still tied to this global system.The bookbegins with the movement of white, U.S.-based single female medical missionaries to India and proceeds through the remaking of the colonial medical map through race-based segregation in the U.S. and the “open door imperialism” of the Rockefeller Foundation in India. It ends with the Cold War emigration of Indian nurses as one outcome of the critical role played by U.S. medical interests in a colonial “civilizing mission.”Complicating the long-held view of Indian women as passive participants in the movement of skilled labor in this period, Reddy demonstrates how these "women in the lead" pursued new opportunities afforded by their mobility. At the same time, Indian nurses also confronted stigmas based on the nature of "women’s work", religious and caste differences within the migrant community, and the racial and gender hierarchies of the U.S.Spanning two centuries and multiple geographic spaces, Nursing and Empire sheds light on histories of capitalist expansion and marginalized women’s histories of resistance and labor migration.This book will be of considerable interest to scholars and students of gender studies, labor history, and U.S.­­–India relations.

Essays on Iran and Israel: An Indian Perspective
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789383649136; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book, containing essays on themes relating to India's relations with Iran and Israel, deals with issues that have been intensely debated in the country for some time now. India’s robust ties with both Iran and Israel – bitter adversaries for more than three decades – have intrigued West Asia watchers. The essays herein highlight the parallel nature of India's engagements with the two countries and attempt to understand the critical concept of strategic autonomy that defines India’s foreign policy postures on contentious issues. The first five essays touch on the central drivers of India’s Iran policy and discuss the limits on New Delhi’s relations with the Islamic Republic. The last three essays dealing with Israel highlight the significance of India’s intervention on questions relating to Israel as well as Israel’s inspirational connection with India. With its unique treatment, lucid analysis and unusual organisation, this factually informed and policy oriented collection of essays on India, Iran and Israel will be an extremely useful resource for scholars, students, policymakers and diplomats alike. It will also interest business community involved with the West Asian region as well as any intelligent layperson looking for facts and figures on subjects discussed in the book.Printed Pages: 272. 104262

Mohammed Rafi: Golden Voice of the Silver Screen
Om Books International; New Delhi, India; 9789380070971; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Born in 1924 at Kotla Sultan Singh, a village near Amritsar, Mohammed Rafi, nicknamed ‘Pheeko’, was the second youngest of Hajji Ali Mohammed and Allah Rakhi’s six sons. He started singing early, deeply inspired by the songs of a wandering fakir, in the village. In the 1920s, circumstances compelled Rafi’s father to move to Lahore where he opened a small dhaba. Rafi’s elder brother, Mohammed Deen, started a barber shop in Noor Mohalla, Bhatti Gate in the same city, with Rafi lending him a helping hand. Meanwhile, Mohammed Deen’s friend, Abdul Hameed recognised Rafi’s talent and encouraged him to sing. Later, he convinced the reluctant family to allow him to take Rafi to Bombay. In 1944, the two arrived in an alien city from where Mohammed Rafi slowly won over the heart of an entire nation. Mohammed Rafi: Golden Voice of the Silver Screen is the authorised biography of one of India’s most beloved singers.Printed Pages: 272 with CD. 105072

Ao Naga World-View: A Dialogue
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8124608083; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The book, as the title says, consists of a series of dialogues about the Ao Naga world-view, their traditions, rituals and ethical norms, and their ideas of history and objects of veneration. The dialogue took place in specially organized meetings and participants were drawn from elders of the Ao Naga tribe, Ao Naga intellectuals and scholars, a student and a visitor from outside. The conversations that took place in these meetings were recorded and what appears in the book is a very lightly edited version of the recorded conversations. The philosophically interesting aspects of these conversations are the views expressed by various participants on the human condition, the ethical grounding of human life, the dividing line between life and death, and about their institutions for educating the young and dispensing justice. The book aims to achieve a twofold objective: (1) to secure an authentic articulation of the traditional Ao world through a dialogue between different Ao voices (an aim pursued very differently from the anthropologist’s participant observation), and (2) clearing the ground for the reflection of philosophical insights thrown up in the process of this articulation. The insights will be obvious to the sympathetic and discerning reader; the reflection is left to those who will read the book with serious philosophical interest.Printed Pages: 218 with 7 color illustrations. 100312

Doing Sociology in India: Genealogies, Locations, and Practices
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2011; 019807011X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
This important volume on the history of sociology in India locates scholars, scholarship, theories, perspectives, and practices of the discipline in different cities and regions of the country over a century. It argues that this history is enmeshed in political projects of constructing a ‘society’, which took place as a result of colonialism and dominant nationalism. Doing Sociology in India affirms the existence of both strong and weak traditions of scholarship in India, and underscores three processes that have aided this development at various points of time: reflexive interrogation of received scholarship; probing ideal types of theories within the classroom; and questioning existing debates on society and its language by publics. It suggests that processes outside academia in social movements and associational groups have interrogated mainstream sociology to make it diverse and multiple. The book has a pan-Indian perspective—it brings together practitioners and interlocutors from various cities and regions to discuss the many traditions of the discipline. Their arguments are structured around the interplay of three themes— time, space, and power. The Introduction provides an overview of how sociology evolved in India and sets the stage for a nuanced understanding of how these traditions grew and became institutionalized in India.

Hundred Tamil Folk and Tribal Tales
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8125039201; First Edition; Paperback; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
In Hundred Tamil Folk and Tribal Tales we have a rich variety of tale-types of a major South Indian oral tradition. Sujatha Vijayaraghavan’s lucid English translation here beacons a serious engagement in Indic studies. It locates this body of work at the interface between folklore, anthropology, sociology and public culture of a by-gone era. This handy collection provides an easy access to the cultural registers and linguistic mores of a tribal/folk population at a crucial juncture of colonial modernity. Furthermore, she translates not merely the tales as she finds them in the Tamil original (naatupura kathai kalanjiyam), but distinguishes and recognises the tribal tale, otherwise unnoticed in a proverbial ocean of Indian folklore. As a vibrant vein of wit and wisdom in Dravidian lives and traditions, the tribal-tale receives the first-ever straight look in these pages. Printed Pages: 324. 032725

Gender Stereotypes in Corporate India: A Glimpse
Response Books; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8178298511; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
A stereotype is a conceptual image that may lead to a simplified view of a person or a thing. Inaccurate stereotypes serve to constrict and limit vision and perception. Gender Stereotypes in Corporate India: A Glimpse explores the theme of `understated` gender stereotypes in the corporate domain in India, while delving into the antecedents and outcomes. Studies suggest that only an insignificant percentage of women managers ever reach the higher echelons of management in most organizations—a phenomenon which can be attributed to the glass ceiling, and the differential treatment meted out to women managers in terms of career mobility, recruitment, evaluation, compensation and other factors. Studies also suggest that gender stereotypes contribute largely to such phenomena. Through three broad studies, the book, a first of its kind, explores existing managerial gender stereotypes in Indian corporates, the antecedents of such stereotypes and the possibility of reducing such stereotypical inaccuracies. The book argues that a basic transformation at the level of policy making, along with a collective will for changing the mindset of the people, is needed to overcome gender differences in organizations as well as educational institutions. This book will interest a wide readership including women professionals, students and trainers in corporate training schools and business schools, sociologists, and organizational psychologists.
