28604 Sanatan Bhowal (Author) & Shail Mayaram (Frwd)
The Subaltern Speaks: Truth and Ethics in Mahasweta Devi’s Fiction on Tribals
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8125062793; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 22 Cm 
A study and postmodern critique of Mahasweta Devi’s major fictional writings on tribals, The Subaltern Speaks addresses some primary concerns of Subaltern Studies historians and explores the representation of tribal people as ‘subaltern’.Adivasis today are caught between an aggressive and seemingly benevolent version of capitalism, although the lines between the two have increasingly blurred. British India created formal property rights to replace customary ones; neoliberal India chased them off their land in pursuit of development, dubbed them ‘terrorists’ and unleashed the army’s might against them. Adivasis have only seemed to appear in recorded history when resisting the state, and their ‘consciousness’ has been reduced to this identity along with their politics. The story of adivasi women is far more harrowing.Following Gayatri Spivak’s deconstructive approach, Sanatan Bhowal draws upon some leading thinkers of our time—Badiou, Levinas, Foucault, Deleuze, Lacan and Zizek—to address Spivak’s question: Can the Subaltern Speak? Using this heterogenous assemblage of ideas as a backdrop—in which Badiou's philosophy of truth, resistance and responsibility for the ‘other’ figure prominently—he focuses on Devi’s ethical representation of the adivasis she has loved, lived with and whose cause she has passionately espoused lifelong. He also underlines the need to unthink conventional discourses before any genuine understanding of tribal consciousness can be arrived at.The volume will be of interest to scholars and students of Subaltern Studies, English and Comparative Literature.

The Tree with a thousand apples
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2016; 9789385285516; Hardcover; New; New; 
Inspired by true events, this riveting narrative traces the lives of Safeena Malik, Deewan Bhat and Bilal Ahanagar, three childhood friends who grow up in an atmosphere of peace and amity in Srinagar, Kashmir, until the night of 20 January 1990 changes it all. While Deewan is forced to flee from his home, Safeena's mother becomes 'collateral damage' and Bilal has to embrace a wretched life of poverty and fear. The place they called paradise becomes a battleground and their friendship struggles when fate forces them to choose sides against their will.Twenty years later destiny brings them to a crossroads again, when they no longer know what is right and what is wrong. While both compassion and injustice have the power to transform lives, will the three friends now choose to become sinful criminals or pacifist saints?The Tree with a Thousand Apples is a universal story of cultures, belongingness, revenge and atonement. The stylised layered format, fast-paced narration and suspenseful storytelling makes for a powerful, gripping read. Printed Pages: 284. 111056

China's Maritime Ambitions and the PLA Navy
Vij Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789382573210; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
China’s Maritime Power dates back thousands of years. China has one of the oldest naval traditions in the world, dating from at least the end of the Warring States period in 221 BC. Nonetheless, China has historically been a continental state with a large ground force and only a coastal navy with limited blue water capability. The rise of modern day China raises considerable regional and security concerns, besides economic and political competition towards finding a rightful place in power politics of the South Asian Region and hence needs a critical analysis. There is a need to focus future strategies to deal with such challenges, both in the medium and long term. An effort to achieve the same has been undertaken in this book. The book is sure to stimulate further discussions on China’s navy and its ambitions. Foreword by Srikanth Kondapalli.Printed Pages: 184. 103193

Troubled Diversity: the Political Process in Northeast India
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 0199453330; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Northeast has evolved as the other in India's nationalist paradigm. This otherness is the result of the region's racial composition and its historical positioning, cultural connectivity, communication and economic linkage. A site of radical identity politics, the Northeast has various communities with striking differences in origin, religion and language that give rise to ethnic conflicts and contestations for power, with each group perceiving the other as a threat to its existence.This work looks at the politics of diversity and identity in the Northeast. The concept of diversity can be used as a unifying mechanism in the post-colonial nation-state through which identities can get homogenized, ethnic identities and cultures can be manipulated for political or economic advantage and ethnic violence can have disastrous consequences like extortion, rape, abduction, death and violation of human rights.Offering a comprehensive analysis that includes theoretical perspectives and a comparison with the political problems in Jammu and Kashmir, this book is a significant study of identity crises in minority communities.

Child Survival Health and Social Work Intervention
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1996; 8170225760; Hardcover; New; New; 
Contrary to the old paradigm of economic growth in which health was viewed as an item of consumption, health is now recognized as a critical commodity of investment for social development. In the context of the third world countries it has been further said that the existing system of hospital based services has failed to reach the masses and there is a growing need of involving the local community in the delivery of health services on one hand and suitably modify the attitudes of the people towards Health on the other. Healthy children can be the greatest resource of any country. The most crucial period in a child life is the first five years during which about 40 per cent of physical and 80 per cent of mental growth and development occurs. In case of poor children, malnutrition causing lowered resistance to various infections in early childhood can threaten their very survival. Transfer of technology to field, particularly in the context of child health and survival is the third major concern of the present book. It is well established that no matter how sound a given medical automatically on its own in the field. Non-medical techniques like extension work or professional social work interventions are required for an effective application of knowledge form lab to land and people. The present book discusses the above mentioned social and health concerns in depth and reports on an experimental study undertaken in an urban slum of Vadodara city in India .The section of Social Intervention Some Core Precepts and Field Projects provides the necessary backdrop of conceptual framework and allied experimentation in the field.

Kaunda Bhatta's Vaiyakaranabhusanasara: An Analytical Study
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1998; 8185636419; First Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
Kaunda Bhatta's Vaiyakaranabhusanasara is an abridgement of his own attempt at logical systematization of Panini's Grammar. It presents an argument to show the reason for the differing interpretations of the Paninian rules by Mimamsakas and Naiyayikas on the one hand, and Grammarians on the other. Through an analysis of verbal roots, conjugational, declensional, primary and secondary affixes, compounds, prefixes and particles; and a study of sphota, it explicates Grammarians' outlook on verbal cognition. The present study is a critical examination of Kaunda Bhatta's arguments. It brings out the relevance of Paninian Grammar in understanding the modern theories of meaning, semantics and syntax.

India Abroad: Diasporic Cultures of Postwar America and England
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2005; 8125027750; First Edition; Paperback; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
India Abroad analyses the development of Indian diasporas in the United States and England from 1947, the year of Indian independence, to the present. Across different spheres of culture---festivals, enterpreneurial enclaves, fiction, autobiography, newspapers, music and film---migrants have created India as a way to negotiate life in the multicultural United States and Britain. Sandhya Shukla considers how Indian diaspora has become a contact zone for various formations of identity and disclosures of nation. She suggests that carefully reading the production of a diasporic sensibility, one that is not simply an outgrowth of the nation-state, helps us to conceive of multiple imaginaries, of America, England, and India, as articulated to one another. Both the connections and disconnections among peoples who see themselves as in some way Indian are brought into focus by this comparativist approach. Printed Pages: 332. 031526

The specificity of the images of Mathura lies in the invention of forms which can translate the diverse personalities of the divinities of the Hindu pantheon. The creation of phantasmic anatomy in the domain of imaginaire, instead of being monstrous, accord a perfect harmony between form and signification. the human figure, the basic form, is transformed into divine form. It is one of the great inventions of Indian art. The impossible associations in the real word create a very natural universe of gods. The present monograph ends with the history of the reactions of the European travellers to icons which were so different from their classical ideal of beauty. It leads to a reflection on the problematics of perception and assimilation of form. Printed Pages: 144 with 154 line figures, 4 coloured and 16 b/w illustrations. 029148

Women, Social Exclusion and Inclusion
Kalpaz Publications/Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789351280729; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
In the last couple of years there has been a spurt of growing interest in and awareness about questions of social exclusion and inclusion. While the nature of exclusion in India has centred around the caste system, other disadvantaged groups such as tribals, women and poor have also suffered from similar disabilities. Their politics of exclusion and inclusion, censure and celebration shows that they wish to be a part of the so-called mainstream academic discourse yet cannot be. The objectives of this book have been to discuss about social exclusion arising out of institutions of caste and gender in Indian society and the inclusive policies designed for them. Besides, the long history of struggle that led to the emergence of India's reservation policy as a mechanism of inclusion for the segment of the Indian population that has been subjected to social abuse , dispossession , indignity, impoverishment and discrimination for millennia demands, that is precisely what this book also tries to discuss, depicting from Jotiba Phule's contribution in the field of education to the framing of Constitution by Ambedkar. This book also attempts to address to what extent government's initiatives have been instrumental in translating the search for inclusivity into a reality.Printed Pages: 302. 106177

Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789382618997; Softcover; New; 
Preeta Dhingra, an editor at Pradhan Publishers, has a dead-end job editing cheap romantic fiction. Life changes when one day a submission lands on her desk, a compilation of stories by well-known women whose public lives shield the terrible trauma of marital infidelity. Anchoring this project is celebrity banker Sonia Vaswani, a financial powerhouse whose marriage of twenty years has ended in divorce. Now Sonia has chosen to go public with the facts and share her vulnerability with the whole world. Preeta, single mother of a physically challenged child prodigy, chooses to go ahead with the publication of the book in defiance of her boss’s fiat against it. In doing so, she puts at risk her job, the trust of her friend, Sonia, and her relationship with Prakash Raghuraj, her mentor and close friend. Preeta’s decision to publish the book is borne out of her desire to do some thing meaningful in life, something that she can be proud of even if it means sacrificing the opportunity to earn enough money to take her daughter to the US for treatment. In the process, she learns some things about her origins that she didn’t know before, alongwith the ability to be at peace with what ever life chooses to throw her way. 109594

Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2007; 8178222698; Softcover; New; 
Vimalakirti is a Bodhisattva who appears as a layman in order to help all living beings. A worker of wonders, he reveals distant universes, feeds thousands of being with a single bowl of nectar, and wins a philosophical debate with a thunderous silence. Because eh is enlightened, the means he uses are highly skilful yet utterly inconceivable. How can we understand and communicate the Buddha`s teaching, learn to practise the spiritual life in association with others, and finally gain our freedom? These are the practical issues, directly relevant to modern life, and illustrated through myth and symbol, which this book explores. Sangharakshita`s commentary illuminates the original text, and can also be read as a teaching in its own right, so vividly does it evokes the spiritual power of Vimalakirti, and the significance of this teachings. Take a step into the extraordinary realm of the Vimalakirti nirdesa. Discover the magic, drama, and paradox of this classic Mahayana scripture and move towards the freedom of heart and mind, which is the inconceivable emancipation.Printed Pages: 160. 102417

The Concept of War: In Indian and Western Political Thought
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 812460732X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
War makes life miserable for both the parties involved, the invader and the invaded. No war is fought without losing men and material, stripping off societal life and political order. Simultaneously it contributes to the progress of the society and preserves the liberty and honour of a state. From the Vedic period of India and the epic period of Greece, we have records of wars, and deliberations on the logic, philosophy, politics, ethics, strategies (pre- and post-war) of war, and the ways of reconstructing the war-ravaged societies, paving the way for drastic social and economic changes. This volume scans the Indian and Western views and approaches on war in the ancient and modern times. To understand the concept of war in ancient period, it analyses Rigveda, Manusmriti, Ramayana, Mahabharata and Arthashastra from the Indian parlance and the philosophies of Plato and Aristotle from the Western perspectives. It also makes an in-depth study on the war philosophies of modern Indian leaders like Mahatma Gandhi, Sri Aurobindo, Vinayak Damodar Savarkar and S. Radhakrishnan, and Western philosophers like John Locke, Immanuel Kant, Georg Friedrich Hegel and Bertrand Russell. The book also explains the nature of war, its socio-economic and political aspects, and how the moral and social ethical concepts are related pragmatically to the issue of war. The author echoes serious concerns about the ways by which the present-day global majors approach war.Printed Pages: 222. 100363

Bollywood movies and their signature song and dance spectacles are an aesthetic familiar to people around the world, and Bollywood music now provides the rhythm for ads marketing goods such as computers and a beat for remixes and underground bands.

Reproductive Restraints: Birth Control in India, 1877-1947
Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2008; 817824229X; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
This book is an investigation of elitist initiatives to limit population growth in India. Reproductive Restraints traces the history of contraception use and population management in colonial India, while illuminating its connection to contemporary debates in India and birth control movements in Great Britain and the United States. Sanjam Ahluwalia draws attention to the interactive and relational history of Indian birth control by including Western activists such as Margaret Sanger and Marie Stopes alongside important Indian campaigners. In revealing the elitist politics of middle-class feminists, Indian nationalists, Western activists, colonial authorities, and the medical establishment Ahluwalia finds that they all sought to rationalize procreation and regulate women while invoking competing notions of freedom, femininity, and family. Ahluwalia’s remarkable interviews with practising midwives in rural northern India fills a gaping void in the documentary history of birth control and shows that the movement has had little appeal to non-elite groups in India. Finding that Jaunpuri women’s reproductive decisions are bound to their emotional, cultural, and economic reliance on family and community, Ahluwalia overwhelmingly demonstrates the limits of deploying universal liberal feminist categories to understand varying localized subjects. She argues that elitist birth control efforts, since colonial times, have failed to account for Indian women’s values and needs, working more to restrict reproductive rights rather than liberate subaltern Indian women.

Bhutan: Kingdom in the Himalaya
Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8174360611; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 9 x 12 Inches Sanjay Acharya 
Tucked away in the eastern Himalaya, between the riverine plains of India and the cold and arid Tibetan plateau, Bhutan is the country of dreams, dragons, legends and landscapes. With its sparking verdant valleys, gurgling streams and forests aglow with wild orchids, this picturesque country is like none other. But Bhutan is more than just temperate forests and tropical jungles. It is the land where the king initiates the move towards democracy, where the people are firmly rooted in religion and are fiercely proud of their history. Most of all, it is a country on the path of development but without sacrificing its values or polluting the environment. This book brings alive all these aspects of the dragon country through some exquisite illustrations in colour and a flowing narrative. Printed Pages: 95 with numerous colour illustrations. 026938

The Sound of Water
IndiaInk/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8186939466; Softcover; New; 
'In this dark and remorseless world, there are no winners or losers. There are only survivors.'Loosely based on the disastrous flooding of the Bagdighi colliery (now in Jharkhand) in 2001, which trapped and killed dozens of miners, Sanjay Bahadur recreates the eventful hours of a disaster in the fast-paced and intriguing narrative that moves between the real and the surreal. Raimotor, an old miner, trapped hundreds of feet below the surface of the earth, struggles to save himself and his fellow miners. Meanwhile, the officials from the mining company and the government, more concerned about their careers, launch a 'rescue operation of their own. And Madho, Raimoti's brother, and his wife, Dolly, eagerly anticipate compensation. The Sound of Water is a searching fictional expose of the conditions of mining of India. The story is as much an exposition of despairing minds as it is about the high voltage drama of a mining accident. But pitted against constant fear of death, mind-numbing work, greed and the establishment's apathy is the power of spiritual strength and conviction that enables one to survive the odds.

Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 9789381523803; Hardcover; New; New; 
Other Lives, Other Fragments is a tale of fragmented identities, of lives broken and destroyed during violent times. It looks at the human story behind cataclysmic events through the diary of Badrul Islam, dispossessed during the 1947 and 1971 riots, and the tale of Manik, a boy who is from nowhere and is going nowhere, and how their lives touch each other. Through these searing portrayals the author tries to explore the implications of acts of hate undertaken in the name of religion and politics. As the novel moves towards its thrilling conclusion, we are left wondering what a tangled web of suffering we weave when we first practise to hate. And how many barriers we can break down when we love.Printed Pages: 216. 106554

Network-Centric Warfare: How we Think, See and Fight in the Information Age
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2012; 9789380502588; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The present age widely referred to as the information age has changed the nature of wars not in degree but in kind. Warfare is no longer confined to the militaries or to the battlefields but has transcended into the civilian domain; today, it also involves the entire government infrastructure, the commercial and economic zones. Network Centric Warfare (NCW) is applicable to all levels of warfare and contributes to the coalescence of strategy, operations and tactics. It is transparent to the mission, force size, its composition and geography. NCW has many attributes which has enabled it to become as potent as it is today. These characteristics have been made possible mainly due to technology and rapid progress in every sphere which has ensured rapid computing and diminishing the tyranny of distances. While the Nuclear Age spawned a return to limited war, the Information Age has had its own unique impact on the conduct of military operations. This century has been characterised by the widespread impact of technology in many fields. Information, communications and data processing have profoundly influenced every significant aspect of human activity and have irrevocably transformed war-fighting methodology. The distinction between war and peace has blurred and is reaching the vanishing point with no definable battlefields or fronts. The distinction between "civilian" and "military" is fast disappearing as is evident from the number of cyber intrusions in the defence, scientific, banking and commercial sectors the world over. As a result, most states today are perpetually at war; a war of a different kind, not against tangible elements but against bits and bytes.Terrorism is a reality today; it is a growing menace in the civilised society and is here to stay. It has taken warfare into the civilian domain. It is difficult to predict where, when and what will be struck and, therefore, not possible to keep a standing force at all vulnerable points. This has led to wars of the present being more covert, with the adversaries learning to use the strengths of the Information Technology (IT) against the proponents. This information war is split between the offensive and the defensive. The advantage more often than not lies with the attacker who can choose the time and place of the attack. The blurring of offence and defence reflects the dual nature of NCW; it tends to defy and cut across standard boundaries, jurisdictions, and distinctions between state and society, public and private, war and peace, war and crime, civilian and military, police and military, and legal and illegal. This makes it difficult, if not impossible, for a government to assign responsibility to any single agency — e.g., military, police, or intelligence—to be in charge of responding. Sharing information and massing of forces becomes critical for quick and effective action. Printed Pages: 262. 104351

Electronic Warfare: War in the Fourth Dimension
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8187966807; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Land, water and air were the three dimensions in which wars were traditionally fought. The advent of electronic warfare (EW) ushered in the fourth dimension, which not only influenced the other three dimensions but also had an impact on shaping strategy and development of weapon systems and platforms. In fact, most of the systems developed since electronic warfare found its predominant place in conflicts, were inevitably intertwined with it. This book is an attempt to delve into, and analyse, the effects of electronic warfare on modern weapon systems and the subtle manner in which warfare has changed after its inception. For example the development of contemporary systems like stealth and unmanned aerial vehicles are outcomes of the need to evade the highly potent surface to air missiles and their associated radars, and the requirement to avoid human casualties. The latest victim of electronic warfare is the global positioning system (GPS). The impact of this navigational system has been stunning. Its employment in commercial and military applications has acquired gigantic proportions. However the system is highly vulnerable to jamming, a fact often ignored in the enthusiasm to climb the GPS bandwagon—something we should be wary of while developing our own systems. The author dwells on the effects of intentional and unintentional interference of electromagnetic energy on this very versatile system. Directed energy weapons (DEWs) are a new type of weapon system, never fielded before. They use electromagnetic energy (light and radio energy) to attack and destroy targets at the speed of light—years of research has made this possible. DEWs, which promise to transform what was in the realm science fiction into reality, have also been discussed. According to the author, electronic warfare in the future will metamorphose into more subtle and ingenious forms to get the better of the evolving systems like net centric warfare, cyber warfare, etc. Systems demonstrating this metamorphosis already exist. This book is a must read for all students and for the elite who exploit the electromagnetic spectrum to enable them to appreciate how this invisible weapon will affect their operations now and in the future.Printed Pages: 220. 104437

Creating Best Value Options in Defence Procurement: Application of Operations Research in Source Selection
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789383649686; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
In the last two decades, the Indian capital defence procurement systems have not only undergone systematic codification, but have also been through an incremental process of continuous improvement. Each new version of the Defence Procurement Procedure (DPP) has endeavoured to bring in process efficiencies, and has attempted to solve functional problems posed by its predecessor. However, neither has the procedure lost its ‘one size fits all character’, nor has it seen induction of any of the international best practices. Above all, it is completely devoid of Operations Research methods or quantitative tools. The capital procurement procedure has not seen any dramatic change in its approach to procurement, and consequently its yield has remained more or less static.The writers of the DPP argue that the procedure addresses many concerns that include the need for faster and expeditious procurement, reducing dependence on imports, development of indigenous defence industry and, above all, avoidance of corruption. These concerns are real and undoubtedly deserve attention. However, the attention that these issues have attracted in the recent past has overshadowed and obscured, to a great degree, two of the fundamental requirements which the DPP should address—satisfaction of the end customer-soldier in the field, and ensuring that the most apt procurement processes and techniques are exploited to develop defence capability. The DPP has serious limitations when it comes to delivery of best value. Over the years, not much has been done to address this concern. The fact that the procedure relies on just a single source selection methodology, wherein price plays a dominant role, is ample proof of its limitations at delivering best value.The book offers alternative methods for source selection, with a view to ensure delivery of best value to the end customer, in all acquisition cases. It suggests Operations Research tools which can make a significant difference to our source selection processes. The author has studied the public and defence procurement regulations of the United States, the European Union, the United Kingdom, Australia, and the United Nation, and has also included in this work many of the international best practices which can be absorbed by the Indian defence procurement system.Printed Pages: 156. 105024

Is ‘Indian Civilization’ a Myth?: Fictions and Histories
Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8178244616; First Edition; Paperback; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
In the title essay of this enthralling collection, Sanjay Subrahmanyam sets a provocative ball rolling: ‘At the heart of the matter’, he says, ‘is the notion that at some distant point in the past, say about AD 500, the concept of “Indian civilization” had already been perfected. Everything of any importance was in place: social structure, philosophy, the major literary works … The central idea here is of India-as-civilization, and it very soon becomes the same as a notion of closed India.’ Demolishing some of the myths which sustain the notion of ‘the wonder that was India’, he shows us a region that was always more a crossroads, a rendezvous for concepts, cultures, and worldviews. Subrahmanyam’s book is itself a meeting point for a dazzling variety of ideas. It provides the cosmopolitan perspective of a multilingual world scholar who, having begun life in New Delhi, has gone on to live in several thought-provoking cities, including Paris, Lisbon, and Oxford. He is witty, debunking, iconoclastic, and polemically entertaining in all that he anatomizes here—Indian history and fiction, South Asian cultural forms, imperialism and imperialists, secularism and Hindu nationalism, travel writing, and the central conceits in Hemingway, Rushdie, Naipaul, and Marquez. Subrahmanyam is renowned as a historian and biographer. This book, which makes us rethink India and the world around it, is the first to reveal that he is also a writer of accessible and delightful English prose. Printed Pages: 276. 038341

Land, Politics and Trade in South Asia
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0195667077; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
Originally planned as a festschrift for Dharma Kumar, this collection of outstanding essays has recently appeared as a special issue of IESHR. The essays represent a diversity of views and methods, all of which are brought to bear on issues concerning various aspects of the economy, society and culture of colonial India. Particular topics focused on include the agrarian history of South India, common lands in western India, the nexus between trade and production, the textile trade in twentieth-century South India, the nature of collaboration and conflict between the Dutch East India Company and private Portuguese traders in the Indian Ocean, adventurers who accompanied and participated in the colonial transition in South India and the rise of the coffee house in colonial Tamil Nadu. In the Introduction Sanjay Subrahmanyam attempts to carry out the difficult exercise of making sense of Indian historiography . For the book version, the editor has expanded on this Introduction, an d he has also added two more essays: Ravi Ahuja s State Formation and Famine Policy in Early Colonial India', and Thomas Trautmann's 'Dr Johnson and the Pandits: Imaging the Perfect Dictionary in Colonial Madras'.Eminent historians have contributed to this volume in memory of Dharma Kumar, whose intellectual contribution as an economic historian and editor is undisputed. This collection of outstanding essays represents the dynamic aspect of the history writing about the colonial period, with one eye always trained on its effects on understanding contemporary India. Sanjay Subrahmanyam s lucid introduction fulfils the task of making sense of Indian historiography and its evolving profile. Among the range of areas addressed by these essays, issues relating to south Indian agrarian history are covered by David Ludden and Tsukasa Mizushima, and the regional-language documentation regarding common lands in western India by Sumit Guha. Ravi Ahuja analyses the famine policy of the ea rly East India Company, and John Richards, Tirthankar Roy and Om Prakash address different aspects of the issue of trade in colonial India. Subrahmanyam uses a set of biographical instances to map colonial transitions in South India. Thomas Trautmann s essay looks at early colonial dictionaries in Madras to better understand the nature of early colonial cultural policy. A. R. Venkatachalapathy describes the rise of the coffee house in Tamil Nadu through an engaging combination of social and cultural history. Printed Pages: 336. 033290

The Raj Lives India in Nepal
Vitasta Publishing Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8189766732; Hardcover; New; New; 
History, geography, religion and culture have bound Nepal and India into an extraordinary relationship. While many Nepalis actively participated in India’s Independence movement, New Delhi too has played an important role in the political evolution of its landlocked northern neighbour. These elements of affinity, exacerbated by asymmetries in area and population are, however, responsible for the rancour underlying the uneven relationship. Many Indians, like most Nepalis, are also exasperated by the resentment this proximity has produced. Preconceived notions and outright prejudices have tightened this embrace of estrangement.New Delhi’s ‘big brother act’ has been stifling for many Nepalis. This was more pronounced when Nepal got painted red with the incessant battering of the Maoist rebels and was split between monarchy and republicanism. This book takes an unconventional approach to India-Nepal relations. Devoid of the abstractions of the academic tomes that fill up bookshelves, this volume also steers clear of the detachment of a historical account. The book draws from a plethora of documents in the public record though it also relies on the author’s personal experience.The provocative title encapsulates the crisp message: How independent India has virtually adopted British colonial policies towards Nepal. By elucidating the misgivings and follies that have long constrained the relationship, the book sets out to explore the inherent possibilities. 107264
