The State in Myanmar
Hurst & Company; London, UK; 1850658935; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Statecraft in Myanmar, previously referred to as Burma, has a lineage going back ten centuries or more. While the state today is expected to provide many other services for a vastly larger population than were its pre-modern predecessors, its basic functions of maintaining social order, controlling economic distribution, and ensuring the perpetuation of itself and its elite managers, remain much the same. The tools available now to do so may be different, and the challenges it faces may have grown, but the issues it addresses would be familiar to the predecessors of the modern rulers of Myanmar. Myanmar, with an estimated population of about 55 million, the 24th largest country in the world, is larger than England. With a territory as big as Texas, it is wedged between the two of the oldest civilisations and now dynamic economies on the globe, India and China. Having been influenced by both India and China for centuries, Myanmar has developed its own cultural distinctiveness in contrast with its near neighbours in South East Asia, especially Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam. Once governed as a British Indian province, Myanmar emerged from the colonial era and the Second World War an economically devastated but strongly nationalistic socialist state. Riven since independence by armed ethnic and ideological conflicts that lasted most of the years between 1948 and the 1990s when ceasefire agreements were reached with multiple insurgent armies, Myanmar’s little studied politics contain elements common to many countries. However, in few have the complexity of forces, historical and contemporary, religious and secular, foreign and indigenous, come together in one place to create so many little understood, and seemingly irresolvable, political issues. The State in Myanmar attempts to draw the complex history of state making and state perpetuation in Myanmar into one volume. The social and economic forces, as well as international and domestic issues, which have made Myanmar one of the poorest and least understood Asian countries, are discussed in this volume. The efforts of Myanmar’s kings, British colonial officials, nationalist politicians, socialist ideologues, and army generals to preserve the state in Myanmar is a history worth attempting to understand on its own terms.

A topic ignored in mainstream scientific inquiry for decades, wisdom is beginning to return to the place of reverence that it held in ancient schools of intellectual study. A Handbook of Wisdom explores wisdom’s promise for helping scholars and lay people to understand the apex of human thought and behavior.

Written from multiple perspectives, including psychology, philosophy, and religion, this book gives the reader an in-depth understanding of wisdom’s past, present, and possible future direction within literature, science, and society. • Written from a variety of different perspectives and disciplines • Covers past, present, and future inquiry on wisdom • The most comprehensive book on the state of the field to date Contents Foreword Monika Ardelt; Part I.

28529 Robert J.C. Young
Postcolonialism: A Very Short Introduction
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2003; 0192801821; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
This innovative and lively book is quite unlike any other introduction to postcolonialism. Robert Young examines the political, social, and cultural after-effects of decolonization by presenting situations, experiences, and testimony rather than going through the theory at an abstract level. He situates the debate in a wide cultural context, discussing its importance as an historical condition, with examples such as the status of aboriginal people, of those dispossessed from their land, Algerian raï music, postcolonial feminism, and global social and ecological movements. Above all, Young argues, postcolonialism offers a political philosophy of activism that contests the current situation of global inequality, and so in a new way continues the anti-colonial struggles of the past.

What's Stopping You? Being More Confident
Times Group Books; New Delhi, India; 2013; 812654418X; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
Confidence is not like an immunization jab. It's not something that can simply be injected into us through motivational exercises and positive thinking. Confidence comes almost exclusively from experience and self-knowledge. Millions of smart people are held back by a lack of this self-knowledge and unwittingly generate the kind of self-reinforcing Behaviour that leads to low confidence. In the follow-up to the ground breaking bestseller, What's Stopping You?, with his very 2018 British' approach to self-help, Robert Kelsey draws on extensive research and personal experience to provide a road map to help break down the barriers that make us shy away from achieving our true potential.Printed Pages: 256. 104550

28532 Robert Kiyosaki & Emi Kiyosaki (Authors)
Rich Brother, Rich Sister
Vanguard Press/TBI; New Delhi, India; 1593155522; Softcover; New; 
Together, then apart, then together again, as a brother and a sister discover the riches of life. Rich Brother, Rich Sister combines the inspirational, true life stories of Robert Kiyosaki and his sister Emi Kiyosaki (Venerable Tenzin Kacho) into a book that will reaffirm your belief in the power of purpose, the importance of action, and the ability to overcome obstacles in a quest for a rich financial and spiritual life. In 1962, the United States detonated an atomic bomb ten miles off the coast of Christmas Island in the South Pacific. From that moment, two people, born of the same parents into the same household with the same childhood experiences, found themselves on distinctly different paths toward God, money, and happiness. Robert became a world-famous entrepreneur, author, and teacher of all things financial. Emi became a highly devout Buddhist nun, author, and teacher of all things spiritual. This book will inspire you along your own life’s journey as you search for your own truths, purpose, and path to wealth—both financial and spiritual—to achieve all the riches of life that were meant for you…and us all. 112937

The Classical Law of India: trans. From French with additions by J. Duncan M. Derrett
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1993; 8121506107; First Indian Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
For many centuries the Hindu population of the Indian subcontinent has largely observed a legal system derived from the Dharmasastra, or "science of righteousness," the indigenous holy law of the land. This legal system, the oldest in existence, is superior in depth and diversity even to Roman law; yet its development has been shaped neither by formal legislation nor by judicial precedent but instead by unique religious concepts that, prescribing rules of conduct to be observed in accordance with one's station in society, gradually acquired the force of law. The word dharma, which may be translated as "duty," in effect expresses conformity with what Hindus regard as the natural order of things; hence its association with law. The Brahmanical Codes, then, may not have constituted legislation in the usual sense, but they did influence the development of formal law in India. Accordingly, students of comparative law and of legal history will find much of interest in M. Lingat's lucid analysis of this ancient system. He begins with a survey of the literature relating to dharma in order to emphasize its extent and influence on Indian thought. Appraising the spirit in which the Codes were composed and charting their relationship to custom on the one hand and to the royal will on the other, M. Lingat demonstrates (by reference to the commentatorial literature of the ninth century and after) how custom was preserved and the king's order recognized without compromising the supremacy of the law. He studies the precepts in and through which the notion of dharma is expressed, and investigates how and to what extent the rule of dharma acquired the force of law. The discussion concludes with an overview of the evolution of the classical Indian legal system as it interacted with other legal systems both in India, first under Muslim and then under British rule, and also in the Buddhist countries of Southeast Asia. 026943

Tajikistan and the High Pamirs: A Companion and Guide
Odyssey Books and Guides; Hong Kong; 2008; 9622177735; First Edition; Paperback; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
A comprehensive introduction to "one of the world 's best kept secrets. " Fringed by the two great rivers of Central Asia, the Oxus and the Jaxartes, Tajikistan can boast not only of breathtaking mountain scenery, but also of 3,000 years of history. The land where Alexander the Great fought desperately against the Scythian nomads, his most formidable adversaries, Tajikistan is an ancient cradle of Persian culture. Originally, it was the home of the Sogdians, the famous trading peoples of the Silk Road; eventually this country was at the heart of the 19th century 'Great Game ', a place of contention for the adventurers and spies of Britain and Imperial Russia. Now recovering from the misfortunes of the 20th century--the travails of Soviet rule and several years of civil war--it is able to offer visitors not only its legacies of cultural and ethnic diversity, but also unparalleled opportunities for adventure. 100 color photos, 13 maps & diagrams.

Recent years have witnessed continued and growing interest in the massive and fascinating poems now as the Sanskrit This interest has manifested itself in the continuing translations of texts, a steady stream of publications and numerous scholarly meetings of Sanskrit epic scholars. A number of these scholars assembled in Helsinki to constitute the Epic Section of the 12th World Sanskrit Conference in the summer of 2003. The present volume places before the Indological community the sixteen learned papers presented at the conference by the distinguished group of scholars who were in attendance. The topics and methodologies of the authors are as varied and diverse as the contents of the monumental poems themselves but each contribution sheds new light on some aspect of the genetic and/or receptive history of these works, their relationship to each other and to other Indic texts, or the representation and analysis of specific characters and episodes in the poems.Printed Pages: 414. 102079

Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8120832949; Second Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 
The purpose, in writing this book, is to provide a self-contained primer, workbook and reader for teaching first year Sanskrit students with no previous linguistic training. The author has tried throughout the work to introduce, explain and illustrate the most significant features of the language and through verses, quotations, and readings. To these ends the grammar has been, in several areas, simplified to prevent the beginner from being more hampered than is absolutely necessary by relatively insignificant paradigms, rules and exceptions. Upon completion of this course, students should have a real working knowledge of the major outlines of Sanskrit sentences with some facility and read, with the help of dictionary, approximately five to ten verses of the Valmiki Ramayana or a similar text in an hour.Printed Pages: 574. 102549

Command Failure in War: Psychology and Leadership
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2011; 9789380502786; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Why do Military Commanders, most of them usually quite capable, fail at crucial moments of their careers? Robert Pois and Philip Langer—one a historian, the other an educational psychologist—study seven cases of military command failures, from Frederick the Great at Kunersdorf to Hitler’s invasion of Russia. While Pois and Langer recognize the value of psychological theorizing, they do not believe that one method can cover all the individuals, battles, or campaigns under examination. Instead, they judiciously apply a number of psycho-historical approaches in hope of shedding light on the behaviors of commanders of commanders during war. Rather than adhering to theoretical uniformity, the most parsimonious explanations drive their applications of psychological theory. Their goal is to provide plausible explanations for the failures of command discussed within. The other battles and commanders studies here are Napoleon in Russia, George B. McClellan’s Peninsular campaign, Robert E. Lee and Pickett’s Charge at Gettysburg, John Bell Hood at the Battle of Franklin, Douglas Haig and the British command during World War I, “Bomber” Harris and the strategic bombing of Germany, and Stalingrad.Printed Pages: 302. 104369

Against the backdrop of the turbulent social and political landscape of today's Pakistan, Robert Rozehnal traces the ritual practices and identity politics of a contemporary Sufi order: the Chishti Sabiris. He does so from multiple perspectives: from the rich Urdu writings of twentieth century Sufi masters, to the complex spiritual life of contemporary disciples and the order's growing transnational networks. Drawing on new textual and ethnographic research, this multi-dimensional and interdisciplinary study of the Sufi tradition challenges the prevailing models of academic scholarship.

Rock and Roll Jihad: A Muslim Rock Star's Revolution
Jaico Publishing House; Delhi, India; 8184951183; Softcover; New; 
With 30 million record sales under his belt, and with fans including Bono and Deepak Chopra, Pakistan-born Salman Ahmad, the leader of the band Junoon, is renowned for being the first rock & roll star to destroy the wall that divides the West and the Muslim world. His hits such as Bheegi Yadein, Azadi, and Sayonee made rock history in India. Rock and Roll Jihad is the story of his incredible journey.Facing down angry mullahs and oppressive dictators who wanted all music to be banned from Pakistan, Salman Ahmad rocketed to the top of the music charts, bringing Western-style rock and pop to Pakistani teenagers for the first time. His band became the U2 of Asia, a sufi-rock group that broke boundaries and sold a record number of albums.As his music climbed the charts, Salman found himself the target of religious fanatics and power-mad politicians desperate to take him and his band down. Undeterred, Salman created his own underground jihad: his mission was to bring his beloved rock music to an enthusiastic new audience in South Asia and beyond. In the center of a new generation of young Pakistanis who go to mosques as well as McDonald’s, whose religion gives them compassion for and not fear of the West, and who see modern music as a rainbow bridge that links their lives to the rest of the world, nothing could stop Salman’s star from rising.Printed Pages: 248 with CD. 105431

Deutscher aus Rußland und finnischer Europäer
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2000; New; 
,,Nach Moskau!" heißt der Sehnsuchtsruf der Hauptgestalten in Anlon Tschechows ,,Drei Schwestem"... Ihm folgte um 1850 der Weber Wilhelm Aue aus Schlesien, und es hat ihn nicht getrogen: Reichtum und eine große Familie bescherte ihm das leben als Moskauer Deutscher. Seinen Sohn Max zog es noch weiter - bis in den ,,Russischen Orient" nach Kokand, wo auch sein Sohn Theodor geboren wurde. Der Name Aue wird im heutigen Rußland bald verschwunden sein - Krieg, Revolution, Verfolgung haben nach 1917 die große Geschwisterschar dezimierf oder zur Auswanderung gedrängt. Aber nach Deutschland ging keiner zurück ... Max Aue kam über Estland nach Finnland, wo Theodor Aue nach einem erfolgreichen Geschäftsleben die Stiftung zur Förderung deutscher Kultur gründete; sein zweiter Sohn ging nach Schweden, andere Aue-Nachkommen leben heute in der Schweiz.Der Autor dieses Buches Deutscher aus Russland und finnischer Europäer. Theodor Aue : Familie, Leben, Vermächtnis, Dr. phil. Robert Schweitzer, geb. 1947, ist stellvertretender Direktor dei Bibliothek der Hansestadt Lübeck und Mitglied mehrerer wissenschaftlicher Gesellschaften in Deutschland und Finnland. Seit über zehn Jahren untersucht er als Stipendiat und ehrenamtlicher Forschungileiter der Aue-Stiftung Wandern und Wirken deutschsprachiger-Menschen im europäischen Nordosten. Aus dem großen Archiv der Aues und aus Interviews mit Zeitzeugen von innerhalb und außerhalb der Familie vermittelt er ein erstes Bild von dieser europäischen Familie - und von Theodor Aue, der Finnland, Deutschland und Rußland nahestand und deshalb seinen Beitrag leisten wollte, die Teilung Europas zu überwinden.

Lübecker in Finnland
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; New; 
Aus keiner anderen deutschen Stadt wanderten so viele Menschen nach Finnland aus wie aus der alten Hansestadt an der Trave - der Stadtstaat übertraf in dieser Hinsicht auch alle Flächenstaaten Deutschlands bis auf Preußen. Das Schicksal von 151 während des 19. und frühen 20. Jahrhunderts nach Finnland eingewanderten Lübeckerinnen und Lübeckern wird hier systematisch untersucht; Motive, Verbindungen, Niederlassungsorte, Berufsstruktur und gesellschaftliche Rolle einer Gruppe werden ermittelt, die vor allem im Wirtschaftsleben Finnlands eine wichtige Rolle gespielt hat. 117298
