28601 Sumit Sarkar
Modern Times: India 1880s-1950s (Environment, Economy, Culture)
Orient BlackSwan/Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8178244705; First Edition; Softcover; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
Much has changed in the world of South Asian history-writing since Sumit Sarkar’s renowned classic, Modern India (1983). “The passage of thirty years having rendered that work thoroughly dated, the futility of any attempt to revise it became increasingly clear to me, especially as over this period my own historical perspectives took new and unexpected directions”, says the author. The present work is an entirely fresh view of the same period. Focusing on three huge areas — Economy, Environment, and Culture — Professor Sarkar offers his magisterial perspective on these.Scientific discourses, laws, forest administration, peasants and adivasis, irrigation, and conflicts over land-use are examined, as are agrarian relations, commercialization, indebtedness, and famine. Trade, finance, and industry are other major focus areas.Modern urban India is scrutinized via the literature on its big cities. Sociabilities, caste configurations, and public culture (theatre, cinema, and sports) are discussed, as are literature, dance, music, and painting. In conclusion, says Professor Sarkar, "I have within each chapter incorporated the relevant historiographical developments, changes, and debates. Separate bibliographical sections will I hope facilitate the work of teachers and students." Printed Pages: 478. 102267

28603 Sumit Sarkar & Tanika Sarkar
Women and Social Reform in Modern India, 2 Vols
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2011; 817824327X; Softcover; New; 
The subject of social reforms has routinely formed a part of Indian history texts. The word 'reforms' conjures up the names of a few great individuals: always Hindu, always upper-caste and educated, always from cities, and always--apart from one or two memorable exceptions--men. These are the icons around whom the story of social change is written. The editors of the present work argue the need to understand the history of social reforms from a much wider array of perspectives: for example, the connections between specific social abuses on the one hand, and, on the other, systems or traditions of gender practices across times, classes, castes, and regions. For instance, when we look at widow immolation or widow remarriage practices, we need to look also at the larger domain of gender relations which sanctified immolation or which outlawed widow remarriage. What arguments were used? What aspects of these practices did the reformers ignore? How did the orthodox practitioners defend such traditions? There are also, say Sumit and Tanika Sarkar, other curious omissions in the existing literature: 'Most reforms passed through the grid of state legislation. Yet, there is little engagement even with the law-making machinery ... and far less with the judicial courts that enforced the laws and dealt with disputes around the new laws.' Such omissions are addressed, and many interesting questions raised and discussed, in this impressive collection of writings.Printed Pages: 870. 101882

Unfreedom and Waged Work: Labour in India's Manufacturing Industry
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8178299402; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Unfreedom and Waged Work: Labour in India’s Manufacturing Industry provides an update on the debates relating to the work and welfare of industrial labour in India. Concentrating on factory workers in India’s organized manufacturing industry, the study analyses, on the basis of official statistics as well as field survey data, the poor status of workers even in this relatively regulated sector, in terms of jobs and the related absence of ‘security’ that provides the content of ‘unfreedom of waged labour’ as discussed in this book. The key features of the book are as follows: - A critical survey of the neo-liberal theories relating to wages, employment and labour flexibility. - A three-digit classification of industry data in India to explain the recent phase of ‘job-less growth’ including casualization. - Firm-level data to test the impact of opening up of economy on output and employment. - A large body of primary field-survey data on work, education, age, skill, casualization and living conditions of workers, presented through reader-friendly tables and figures. - A labour security index for different categories of workers which shows the declining levels of various forms of labour security in terms of income, work, financial status, etc. - A critical look at the recommendations of the National Commission of Labour with its advocacy of labour market flexibility and an undermining of the role of trade unions. The book will attract a wide readership amongst students and researchers in social sciences and social activists and policy makers within the country and overseas. Printed Pages: 248. 028534

The Trends of Philosophical Thought in Mahabharata
Bharatiya Kala Prakashan; Delhi, India; 2011; 8180902749; Hardcover; New; New; 
Foreword. Preface. 1. Introduction. 2. The Vedanta philosophy in the Mahabharata. 3. The Samkhya philosophy in the Mahabharata. 4. The Yoga philosophy as reflected in the Mahabharata. 5. Miscellaneous. 6. Conclusion. Bibliography. Index.The Mahabharata is a rich mine of philosophical speculations and the source of many inchoate systems of philosophy. As an encyclopaedia of Indian culture, it has accommodated the important thought ferments of that period. If philosophy is reflection upon varieties of human experience, or rational, methodological and systematic consideration of these topics which are of great concern to man, the great epic, the Mahabharata is really a book of philosophy. Its vast canvas encompass all aspects of human life in the early age of Indian culture which were later on crystallized into various Darsanas of Indian philosophy. They were mainly six and practically incorporated the Indian thinking of those days. The Mahabhrata has given respectable place to almost all of them and consequently has become encyclopaedic in nature. Mrs. Joshi has taken an excellent survey of all those thoughts in her book entitled The Trends of Philosophical Thought in the Mahabharata. Printed Pages: 354. 110676

28628 Sundari Siddhartha
Sarasvatikanthabharanam, Vol. I
Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts/MLBD; New Delhi, India; 2009; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Sarasvatika??habhara?am is a work on poetics (Bhoja has another work on grammar under the same name). This encyclopaedic compilation is a record of the wide range of human experience and knowledge that interested Bhoja. It discusses the usual topics of poetics in an unusual manner- do?a, gu?a, do?agu?a, ala?kara, rasa, d?sya and sravya kavya. There are many earlier editions of this work, some with even two commentaries. But this alone has an English translation. The text has been exhaustively and incisively edited, without obscuring Bhoja's thought and intent.Poetry cannot be fitted into rigid classes either of matter or of manner. Rightfully is Bhoja unfettered by the terms and definitions, armed with which writers try to study "great poetry". Bhoja has a practical approach and does not involve in the speculation on the soul of poetry. He holds rasa to be the crux of poetry. S??gara is the foremost which can gather into itself all the other rasas. Bhoja uses Abhimana and aha?ara as synonymous with rasa. It is, hence, inferred that the identification with the action and with the chief character, on the part of the reader, brings about this delight. The self-transcending state of aesthetic delight, spoken of by Abhinavagupta may be a more advanced stage of this joy.Printed Pages: 466. 101618

28639 Sung Min Kim
Voice of the Void: Aesthetics of the Buddhist Mandala on the Basis of the Doctrine of Vak in Trika Saivism
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8124607567; First Edition; Hardcover; New; Nerw; 15 x 23 Cm 
The research undertaken here about Buddhist mandalas is basically designed under the philosophical question how the visible dimensions of forms are related to their invisible contents. The textual sources in reference to Buddhist mandalas teach that the essence of mandalas is shunya (void) and their forms are the reflective images (pratibimba) of shunya. This volume investigates how the colourful form of Buddhist mandalas represents the prime concept of shunya, and what makes these mandalas visually powerful, leaving the impression of "spiritual enhancement" in the heart of people who do not even know about the Buddhist doctrines. The mandalas permanently represented in the monastic complexes of Tabo and Alchi in the Western Himalayas have been focused in order to examine a prominent role of visual dimensions of mandalas. In order to comprehend mandalas in the context of Buddhist philosophy, the texts of the Yoga-Tantra class have been looked up. Especially, the references to the tantric visualization-practice throw light on the internal experiences with mandalas. Considering the fact that the Buddhist mandalas have been developed as a method of Mantrayana, being always combined with mantras and mudras, this volume presents the concept of vak (word, subtle sound, voice) as a key to explain how the ultimate state of shunya and perceptible forms of mandalas are related to each other. The doctrine of vak developed in the tradition of Trika Shaivism in Kashmir provides us with a systematic way to explain the non-dualism between all phenomenal objects and the Supreme Divine. The doctrine of four levels of vak is examined in the book for the purpose of interpreting the aesthetic phenomena and structuring the different levels of meanings of mandalas from the aesthetic perspective. On the basis of the vak theory, the external forms of mandalas have been explored and their visual principles have been technically analysed, in attempt to answer the question: how do the colourful forms of Buddhist mandalas resemble the formless shunya?

28640 Sunil Bhati
American Karma: Race, Culture, and Identity in the Indian Diaspora
New York Universiry Press; New York ,USA; 2007; 0814799590; First Edition; Paperback; New; 23 Cms x 15 Cms 
The Indian American community is one of the fastest growing immigrant communities in the U.S. Unlike previous generations, they are marked by a high degree of training as medical doctors, engineers, scientists, and university professors. American Karma draws on participant observation and in-depth interviews to explore how these highly skilled professionals have been inserted into the racial dynamics of American society and transformed into “people of color.” Focusing on first-generation, middle-class Indians in American suburbia, it also sheds light on how these transnational immigrants themselves come to understand and negotiate their identities. Bhatia forcefully contends that to fully understand migrant identity and cultural formation it is essential that psychologists and others think of selfhood as firmly intertwined with sociocultural factors such as colonialism, gender, language, immigration, and race-based immigration laws. American Karma offers a new framework for thinking about the construction of selfhood and identity in the context of immigration. This innovative approach advances the field of psychology by incorporating critical issues related to the concept of culture, including race, power, and conflict, and will also provide key insights to those in anthropology, sociology, human development, and migrant studies.

Pratidwandi
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8125019022; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Pratidwandi, meaning 'adversary', is the English translation of the Bengali original by Sunil Gangopadhyay. The story is about a family living in Calcutta during the 1960s-- the mother, two sons, the daughter, and an uncle, who moves in at the death of the father. Having lost their tea estates, they are undergoing a severe financial crisis. Siddhartha, the central character, was able to complete his graduation, because his sister ,Sutapa, was persuaded to take up a job but at the cost of her own education. Siddhartha wishes to become a doctor, but there is not enough money to fund his studies at medical college. Attempts at getting a job prove futile and his sense of frustration and obligation deepen. The apparent immutability of the situation leads to constant bickering and fights in the family. Sutapa, forced into the role of selfless breadwinner, is fed up and in trying to find an escape route brings dishonour to the family-- the final blow to their dignity. The bleakness of the narrative is relieved by a streak of romanticism and an idealistic vision of a world once inhabited by Siddhartha. Satyajit Ray made this story into a film, drawn by the compelling characterisation of Siddhartha. Printed Pages: 112. 031645

Living on the Adge: In Jhande Walan Thompson
Lotus/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8174367446; Softcover; New; 
Living on the 'Adge'in Jhande Walan Thompson is a Bill-Bryson-esque tale of Sunil Gupta's twenty-three-year-long expedition Through the Looking Glass in the madcap wonderland of Indian advertising. A delightful and quirky narrative with a wonderful cast of characters and companies (a virtual who's who of advertising and marketing), inimitable descriptions and hilarious episodes, it presents a valuable and irreverent history of the growth and development of an increasingly important and yet largely unknown sector of the industry. Sunil's gift of observation and portraiture and his original use of language and metaphor are truly remarkable. Dig in and discover how Sunil likes his coffee without any sweetener. You won't find any aspartame in his writing either. And you'll find a lot to laugh about, admire and ponder over along the way. Printed Pages: 465. 108543

Journal of Indian Ocean Archaeology
Indian Archaeology Society/D.K. Printworld; New Delhi, India; 8124608598; Softcover; New; 
Journal of Indian Ocean Archaeology was launched in 2003 by one of India’s leading academic institutions, the Centre for Research & Training in History, Archaeology and Palaeo-environment, New Delhi. The second issue is in the Press. The Journal is an outcome of the realization on the part of the international community of archaeologists and historians that India has no journal devoted exclusively to the archaeology of the Indian Ocean Rim countries, starting from the Red Sea through the South China Sea, although Indian occupies the central position in this vast area, with three-fourths of its land facing the gulfs and bays of the Indian Ocean. It is common knowledge that Egypt, Ethiopis, Kenya, Arabia, Yemen, Oman, Bahrain and countries bordering the Persian Gulf, including Iraq and Iran, as well as Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, China, were closely connected with each other through long-distance sea-borne trade-routes for thousands of years. This particular phenomenon had led to the development of what is now generally called ‘Shared Culture’ with its distinct personality which is Afro-Asian. It is reflected in the material items dug up every year at a number of sites in India and all other countries along the coasts of the Indian Ocean. This journal embodies the results of explorations and excavations conducted by scholars in various countries which witnessed the growth of the personality of the shared culture of the Indian Ocean Rim countries, including the countries of Southwest Asia. It also includes all aspects of cultural, economic and socio-political histories of these countries. The contributors to this journal are from all over the world. It is a MUST for every scholar and layman interested in the history and arachaeology of the coastal countries of the Indian Ocean, from Africa, and West Asia through China.

Human Behaviour
National Book Trust/Sangam Book Depot; New Delhi, India; 8123721218; Softcover; New; 
The present volume focusses on the roots of human behaviour and tries to explain why diverse individuals behave differently under the same circumstances. The structure and function of the brain—insofar as they determine behaviour—are described in some detail. Our genetic make—up, the environment in which we are brought up, intelligence, perception, memory, learning, imagination and our various innate drives shape the manner in which we act and react. Creativity is natural to us but can be thwarted or fostered by those around us and by circumstances. The book also describes abnormalities of behaviour often the result (often the result of mental illness) and contemporary problems such as addiction to drugs, the development of violent traits and criminal behaviour. 108448

Incarnations: India in 50 Lives
Penguin Books India Pvt. Ltd./Prakash Books; New Delhi, India; 024120822X; Softcover; New; 
For all of India's myths, its sea of stories and moral epics, Indian history remains a curiously unpeopled place. Sunil Khilnani's Incarnations fills that space: recapturing the human dimension of how the world's largest democracy came to be. In this stunning and deeply researched book, accompanying his major BBC Radio 4 series, Khilnani explores the lives of 50 Indians, from the spiritualist Buddha to the capitalist Dhirubhai Ambani - lives that light up India's rich, varied past and its continuous ferment of ideas. Khilnani's trenchant portraits of emperors, warriors, philosophers, poets, stars and corporate titans-some famous, some unjustly forgotten-bring feeling, wry humour and uncommon insight to social dilemmas that extend from ancient times to our own. As he journeys across the country and through its past, Khilnani uncovers more than just history. In rocket launches and ayurvedic call centres, in slum temples and Bollywood studios, in California communes and grimy ports, he examines the continued and often surprising, relevance of the men and women who have made India - and the world - what it is. Their stories will inform, move and entertain this book's many readers. Printed Pages: 656. 107610

The Emergence of the Delhi Sultanate: 1192-1286.
Permanent Black; Ranikhet, India; 2010; 8178243067; First Paperback Edition; Paperback; New; 14.5 Cms x 22.5 Cms 
The Sultans of Delhi came from relatively humble origins. They were slaves who rose to become generals in the armies of the Afghan rule Muizz al-Din Ghuri. Their transformation into rulers of a kingdom of great political influence in North India was a slow and discontinuous process that occurred through the thirteenth century. For the better part of that ecntury, there were many centres of social and political power in the early Delhi Sultanate. There were military commanders with contending political ambitions, as well as urban elites with contrasting social constitencies, religious ideologies, and personal commitments. Such people did not always support authoritarian interventions seeking to create a monolithic state. So, for decades, the Sultanate seemed to disappear from political reckoning, and its resurrections were more in the nature of reincarnations. It made its periodic reappearances in bodily forms different from those of its precursors. Ultimately, the Delhi Sultanate survived not just because of the political and military acumen of its rulers and military agents, but because of the ideological investment of a variety of Muslim emigres that saw the Delhi Sultanate as a sanctuary for muslims dering the period of Mongol holocaust. In The Emergence of the Delhi Sultanate, Sunil Kumar charts the history of the structures that sustained and challenged this regime, and of the underlying ideologies - eliding its sometimes ephemeral form - that gave meaning to the idea of the Delhi Sultanate.

Relevance of Swami Vivekanand in 21st Century
Kalpaz Publications/Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789351280187; Hardcover; New; New; 
Today when we have finished the first decade of 21st century and it has been claimed by number of reliable national and international agencies that India is growing and making a respectable place into the international system; But in reality we are also struggling with many burning issues which are basic in nature.Today when we are celebrating 150th birth anniversary this book will be highly useful to adopt and implement his thoughts to resolve the problems.Inspite of her innumerable linguistic, ethnic, historical, regional and religious diversities, India has had from time immemorial a strong sense of culture unity. It was however, Swami Vivekanand who revealed the true foundation of this culture and thus clearly defined and strengthened the sense of unity as a Nation. He is considered as a key figure in the introduction of Hindu Philosophy of Vedanta and Yoga to the western world and is also credited for bringing Hinduism to the status of a major world religion during the end of the 19th century. Swamiji gave a proper spiritual heritage and thus gave them pride in the past. This book is the tribute to the great Indian icon and social reformer Swami Vivekananda whose life itself is the message for the whole humanity. This book would be highly useful for students, researchers, academicians and the common readers who have interest in the life and teachings of Vivekananda.Printed Pages: 173. 106196

Akhilesh Yadav: Winds of Change
Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789383260218; Softcover; New; 
Growing up in the dusty and dacoit-infested by lanes of Saifai in Etawah district, four year old Tipu knew he had to change his name in order to join school. He took charge and named himself Akhilesh. At home he had one of India’s most controversial politicians, Mulayam Singh Yadav for a father whose obsession with politics left him little time either for his ailing wife, Malti Devi or his son. Akhilesh Yadav tried to keep the connection to the senior Yadav a secret in military school and later in college in Mysore, while his father negotiated his way through the badlands of Uttar Pradesh and ended up wresting control thrice as chief minister. Written by veteran journalist and Resident Editor of the Hindustan Times (Lucknow) Sunita Aron, Akhilesh Yadav. Winds of Change is a detailed and lively chronicle of Uttar Pradesh’s political history where the lust for power orchestrated every politician Indira Gandhi, V.P. Singh, Mayawati, Kalyan Singh and most importantly Mulayam, to redefine the rules of the game for a definite win at the end. 109604

Styles of Theater Acting
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1991; 8121203937; Hardcover; New; New; 
The study seeks to clarify myths and concepts about the different styles of acting on the stage. All the major styles of acting-melodramatic, biomechanical, expressionist, symbolist, psychological-naturalist, epic theater-have been included in the book. The discussion of acting styles is marked by lucidity of expression and clarity of argument chastened by a deep insight of a practitioner of the various styles. The study brings into sharp focus the mechanics and dynamics of each acting style and gives a clear and useful guidance to its practitioner as to how to exploit himself as a player whose instrument, too, he himself is. Frequent reference to the Indian performance scenario makes the book eminently meaningful to the Indian theater person and theater lovers. Several interesting, penetrating conclusions have been thrown up. Such as the theater and acting may be realist-theatrical or theatrical-realist, pointing out the duality of their nature. Or, the basic training on the art of acting in same for all actors, only they have to wear about themselves different techniques for shifting over one to the other acting style-or even the medium. Or, how a muddle-headed theoretical understanding of a style may lead to encountering an impact or communication dynamically opposed to the one intended-a sort of a law of reversal operating in the theater.Printed Pages: 134. 105747

Blessed Teresa of Kolkata
Om Books International; New Delhi, India; 8187107456; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Mother Teresa of Kolkata was a Roman Catholic nun who through sheer force of personality and belief had an enormous impact on the care of the poor, the sick and the dying that resulted in her winning the Nobel prize in 1979. Through her transcendental spirituality she amassed a worldwide constituency devoted to her aims, and there are now some seven hundred any forty homes around the world dedicated to her causes. This authorized pictorial history is a tribute to Mother Teresa's extraordinary achievements and had been compiled by her closest associate as a tribute for the first anniversary of her death. Using photographs from around the world, the majority of which has never been published before, it includes pictures of her as a young girl in Albania, addressing the US Senate, the magnificent pomp of her Indian State funeral, her simple tomb and the beatification. But the major part of the book follows the daily round of the sisters and focuses on the charismatic figure of Mother Teresa.Printed Pages: 128. 105098

Citizenship and Governance
Kaveri Book Service; New Delhi, India; 2015; 817479168X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The book tries to analyse how government and citizen relationship are changing in the globalized world. Government to Citizen relationship is the most basic aspect of any democratic governance. In modern times, Government deals with many aspects of the life of a citizen. The relation of a citizen with the Government starts with the birth and ends with the death of the citizen. A person transacts with the Government on every corner of his life. May it be birth registration, marriage registration, divorce or death registration? The Government to Citizen relation will include the services provided by the Government to the Citizens. These services include the public utility services i.e. Security, Telecommunication, Transportation, Post, Medical facilities, Electricity, Education and also some of the democratic services relating to the citizenship such as Certification, Registration, Licensing, Taxation, Passports, and ID Cards etc.Having committed ourselves to democracy, rule of law and human rights for organizing governance and addressing the aspirations of the people, the legitimate ways for resolving the problems have to be found within the framework of the Indian Constitution. The Constitution is not just a law or an instrument of governance. It is a social and moral document embodying the manifesto or vision of one billion Indians, diverse in several respects but united in terms of the social contract to build a Sovereign, Socialist, Secular and Democratic Republic. The philosophy of the constitution, its role in reconstructing Indian society and the relative roles and responsibilities of citizens and the State are inadequately understood by those in charge of governance and the people for whom the system is designed. The first step towards addressing the challenges we face today is to re-visit the original social contract and the preambulary promises made to form the Republic and look at the design of governance critically. Constitutionalism is imperative for democratic governance in a plural society under a federal structure. The book discusses about how governance and processes are taking shape in India and how the nation is coping with the challenges created by the today’s globalized world.Printed Pages: 223. 104134

Hindu Pilgrimage: The Teerthas (A journey through the holy places of Hindus all over India)
V & S Publishers; New Delhi, India; 8122309976; Softcover; New; 
As humans, we lead a life full of struggle and strife. During trying moments, we might knowingly or unknowingly indulge in actions that may be sinful. After a certain time, the wrong actions start weighing us down, and our conscience prods us to atone for our sins. That is when we consider visiting a teertha, where we can go and ask for forgiveness. Such a spiritual journey is termed as a pilgrimage or teertha yatra, which is one of the distinguished facets of Hinduism. Though, undertaking a religious journey is not mandatory in this religion, still a number of Hindus visit the teerthas every year in search of peace and enlightenment. Most of the teerthas are located in calm and secluded places surrounded by the pristine Beauty Care of nature. These places may be near a water source, a mountain or a forest. Their environs are further sanctified by the presence of the holy men and their regular mantra chanting. Such places provide immense peace to the soul. Hindu Pilgrimage – The Teerthas takes you on a mental journey to such spiritual places in India. The book discusses in detail Chaar Dhaam, Himalayan Chaar Dhaam, Sapt Puri, Dwadash Jyotirlingam, Panch Sarovar, Sapt Sarita, Divya Desam, Shakti Peetha, Yatras and also some of the famous temples in India. Enhanced with vivid and exclusive pictures, the book brings the places alive and inspires one to make a pilgrimage to these holy shrines. Printed Pages: 186. 108246

Advent of Sikh Religion: A Socio-political Perspective
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1993; 8121505720; First Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
The present work presents a comprehensive and analytical study of the origin and evolution of the Sikh religious ethos and also the emergence of the Sikh community on a broad canvas covering religious as well as socio-political contours of thought of Guru Nanak and the first four successor Gurus. Providing a fresh perspective about the distinctive theological basis and dynamic character of the Sikh faith, the author has underscored that Guru Nanak's genius lay specifically in integrating the contemporary Bhakti-sufi tradition of spiritual quest with the socio-political milieu in the totality of medieval Indian life. Through Guru Nanak, the Bhakti movement in Punjab became a vehicle for social change and it was the intensity and depth of his spirituo-socio-political message, fortified and consolidated by successor Gurus that served as an edifice on which the super structure of Sikhism was built. Dr. Puri grappled with many crucial and vital issues in this erudite volume and has focused, inter-alia, on the politically-educative values, albeit nebulous or incipient, in the Sikh religion ethos. The central theme emerging from this penetrating study is that the essence of Nanak's religion consists in its being a force and emancipating mankind from all religious and social shackles. Guru Nanak consciously projected new goals, envisaging a socio-political order based on the concept of universal brotherhood, social justice, and humanitarian cultural vision that would engender peaceful co-existence and mutual understanding through explicit acceptance of cultural pluralism. And herein lies the relevance of Nanak's message in the present context and significance of his approach which aims at linking all aspects of human activity, including that in social and political arenas, with the concept of 'Dharma'. The study would help in probing the genesis of Sikhism and the values it has stood for, and will also inspire others to take up still further research in this direction. Printed Pages: 271. 000492

Navigating the Near: Non-Traditional Security Threats to India, 2022
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2011; 9789380502656; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
National security is most often thought of in terms of political and military threats to the state—either from other states or geo-strategic alliances. Given such a framework, both the challenges as well as the responses have for long been viewed in terms of the military force or coercive ability of the adversary. Events unfolding in today’s highly networked and globalised economies show the futility, and danger, of relying on such a simplistic template. Threats to national security are today multi-dimensional and call for a deeper study and understanding of a wide variety of factors to create a credible response mechanism.Navigating the Near seeks to bridge this paradigm shift by studying non-traditional threats facing contemporary India. The study, with its sight on the next decade, evaluates how traditional threats confronting India are likely to be influenced in large measure by a range of factors and trends, both external and internal, that have, till now, remained on the fringes of security studies.Printed Pages: 162. 104378
