28601 Sukanta Chaudhuri (ed.)
Renaissance Reborn: In Search of a Historical Paradigm
Chronicle Books in Collaboration with The School of Cultural Texts and Records, Jadavpur University; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8180280381; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The term ‘Renaissance’ has been used to refer to various movements in cultural history – originally in Europe, and later, by extension, to other civilizations. This book brings together a collection of articles by thirteen Italian and Indian scholars on the European and Indian renaissances. Between them they cover the work of major writers in Europe (Dante, Petrarch) and India (Bankim Chandra, Vidyasagar, Tagore); cultural and socio-historic movements like humanism, nationalism, the Reformation and Orientalism; and crucial social sectors like the growth of the vernaculars, the changing status of women and pursuit of science.

Infirm Glory: Shakespeare and the Renaissance of Image of Man
Chronicle Books; New Delhi, India; 2008; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Infirm Glory places Shakespeare in the context of Renaissance thought and literature, especially with respect to man’s faculties and his place in the universe. The author starts with an account of Renaissance skepticism, the line of thought that questions man’s ability to attain to certain knowledge. This intellectual doubt soon extends to moral questioning, and passes beyond formal philosophy to broader literary and speculative treatments. Infirm Glory was originally published in 1981. This new edition carries a fresh introduction by the author, looking back on his work and placing it in the light of subsequent scholarship. There is also a short critique of English studies, especially Shakespeare studies, in India. Printed Pages: 272. 031533

28605 Sukanta Chaudhury (ed.)
Art of the Intellect: Uncollected English Writings of Sudhindranath Datta
Chronicle Books; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8180280330; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
This volume contains all the recoverable English writings of the Bengali poet and critic Sudhindranath Datta, outside those already gathered in an earlier collection, The World of Twilight. They include a hitherto unknown introduction for a projected Oxford Book of Bengali Verse, drafted by Sudhindranath for the proposed editor, Rabindranath Tagore. Other pieces testify to his informed interest and original thought about Indian and European literature, ancient history, international politics, philosophical speculation and the social mores of his time. There are also a number of book and theatre reviews, and many other pieces that he wrote for The Statesman. The range of subjects and depth of treatment reflect one of the most erudite and original minds of Bengal's post-Tagore, post-Independence generation. They recreate the political, cultural and intellectual milieu of that age of transition. The core material is drawn from the Datta archives at Jadavpur University, Kolkata. Some of it was never published. Other items may have been printed but are virtually untraceable: they have been recovered from drafts and typescripts. Some pieces have been recovered from The Marxian Way, other rare journals, and from The Statesman archives. The volume is edited by Sukanta Chaudhuri with an Introduction by Amiya Dev.

Women Rights Violation Vs Restoration
Kalpaz Publications/Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789351281559; Hardcover; New; New; 
Women's rights are the rights and entitlements claimed for women and girls of many societies worldwide. Although males seem to have dominated in many ancient cultures, there are some exceptions. During the 19th century some women began to ask for, demand, and then agitate and demonstrate for the right to vote, the right to participate in their government and its law making. In the subsequent decades women's rights again became an important issue in the English speaking world. By the 1960s the movement was called feminism. In 1946 the United Nations established a Commission on the Status of Women. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted in 1948, enshrines "the equal rights of men and women", and addressed both the equality and equity issues. The present book highlights, considers and discusses various contemporary issues of women rights. It is hoped that the present edition of this book will be beneficial to all concerned of the society, in general and students, lawyers, advocates, academicians, human rights institutions, researchers and NGOs working in women rights field, in particular.Printed Pages: 289. 106130

28611 Suketu Mehta
Maximum City: Bombay Lost and Found
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2006; 0670049212; First Edition; Paperback; New; 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
Suketu Mehta left Bombay at the age of 14. Twenty-one years later, having lived in Paris, London and New York's East Village, he returned to rediscover the only city he calls his own. The result is this stunning, brilliantly illuminating portrait of the megalopolis and its people—a book, seven years in the making, that is as vast, as diverse, as rich in experience, incident and sensation as the city itself. Mehta approaches the life and lives of Bombay from unexpected angles. He takes us into the underworld where Muslim and Hindu gangs manage to wrest some control of the Byzantine political and commercial systems of the city. He follows the life of a bar dancer, whose childhood of poverty and abuse left her no choice but the one she made. He journeys on the famed local trains and out onto the streets and footpaths, where the essential story of Bombay is played out every day by the countless migrants who come in search of a better life. He opens windows into the inner sanctums of Bollywood and the alternative universe at its fringes. And through it all—as each individual story unfolds—we hear Mehta's own story: of the mixture of love, frustration, fascination, and intense identification he feels for and with Bombay. Candid, impassioned, insightful, both surprisingly funny and heart-rending, Maximum City is a revelation of a complex and ever-changing world: the continent of Bombay. Printed Pages: 600. 013187

Early Buddhist Monachism
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1996; 8121501202; Reprint; Hard Cover; New; New; 14 Cms x 23 Cms 
This treatise on the growth and early development of the Sangha (Buddhist Monastic Order) has often been referred to by scholars as the most complete and masterly treatment of the subject and, as such, invaluable to students of Buddhism. It has besides a peculiar importance in relation to the history of Indian culture, As the author says, "Indian culture is composite and the Buddhist contribution to it during the two millennia and a half that Buddhism was a living religion in India is so much a part and parcel of it that no true view of Indian culture is possible by ignoring the Buddhist contribution". This contribution was made through the organisation of Buddhist monkhood. The author has shown with a wealth of masterly scholarship how this organisation was established and developed in India. His chapters on the Patimokkha and Vinaya regulations of the monk community, the growth of coenobium among them, their internal polity of communal life, written from a scientific and historical point of view, are interestingly presented and will hold the general reader. First submitted anonymously as a prize-thesis to the University of Calcutta, it won the Griffith Memorial Prize in 1919. The verdict of the university examiners has been confirmed by Buddhistic scholars the world over who hailed it on its first publication as a work of exceptional originality and of great value in the study of Buddhism and Buddhist history.

Fate and Fortune in the Indian Scriptures
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789382993889; Hardcover; New; New; 
Fatalism is a philosophical doctrine which states that an individual does not have full control over the events that happen in his life. There is no trace of fatalism in the early Indian literature— Samhitas Brahmanas and Upanisads ; it surged in the succeeding period. This book argues that the predominance of the priestly class after the revival of Brahminism as an aftermath of the decline of Buddhism ushered in conspicuous changes in people’s attitude to life. The new modifications helped to entrench fate as a formidable force. It explains that the natural factors which led to the rise of fatalism were observation of the inexorability of death. The author has referred to a splendid array of scriptures ranging from the early and late Vedic literature Ramayana Mahabharata to Buddhist and Jain texts Bible and other old western texts to establish her erudite findings.Printed Pages: 328. 101475

Vishnu (With Special Reference to Epigraphy and Coins)
Sharada Publishing House; Delhi, India; 2015; 8188934925; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 19 x 26 Cm 
Visnu is the object of worship as the Supreme Deity of Vaisnavism, which is one of the most important cult that came into existence some centuries before the Christian Era. A study of epigraphical evidence discloses a variety of names and attributes of Visnu known throughout north India. He has been called Visnu and Vasudeva in the Gujarat-Saurashtra region; Purusottama, Rajivalochana and Upendra in central India; and Narayana, Trivikrama and Chaturbhuja in eastern India. In the Upper Ganga valley region, he is addressed as Adikesava and Chandra-madhava. With the elaborate nomenclature, the attribute of the god are equally impressive in number and variety. The chakra, kaustubha, Garuda and sankha which are very often in the inscriptions described are traditionally associated with Visnu.The book is mainly concerned with the historical development and mythological associations of Visnu. Though his presence is too conspicuous in ancient Indian art and literature, but the profile of the Visnu provided by the epigraphical annals has its own importance. The accounts that follows, provide glimpses into the adoration of the God Visnu, in a somewhat chronological order, as available in the epigraphical annals from earliest times. There are almost fifteen hundred (1500) inscriptions belonging to second century BCE to twelfth century CE, cover the entire geographical limits. These inscriptions have been issued by the royal authority and private donors. Invariably they indicate the name of ruling authorities and the common people, the occasion, the purpose of the grant and also usually the date on which the record was incised.Printed Pages: Printed Pages: 210 with 45 b/w illustrations. 106089

The Revenge of Kaivalya
Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789383260287; Softcover; New; 
In the lush forests of Sakleshpura, a tribal man dies under mysterious circumstances, his body branded with words in an ancient Kannada script and only the eerie silhouette of a young woman to be seen. Nearby, in modern-day Bangalore’s concrete jungle, Neel, young, handsome and till now carefree, uneasily wonders if his friends on the party circuit are playing a prank on him, his penthouse reeks of charred flesh and he thought he saw a young woman out of the corner of his eye. Meanwhile, at the other end of the Sakleshpura forest reserve, newly-married Shivaranjini experiences a devastating seizure, emerging with a terrifying new personality. What are the mysterious forces at work here and how are all these things related? How does an audacious kidnapping investigated by a svelte police officer fit in? Is it a case of paranormal activity, as believed by the beautiful Tara or something much less sinister? Neel and his friends are caught up in the vortex of these seemingly unrelated events, until the day they unravel the truth and discover the revenge of Kaivalya. 109610

Princely Palaces in New Delhi
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 9789383098910; Hardcover; New; New; 
Rajas and maharajas from all over the British Indian Empire congregated in Delhi to attend the great Delhi Durbar of 1911. A new capital city was born—New Delhi. Soon after, the princely states came up with elaborate palaces in the “new” Imperial capital—Hyderabad House, Baroda House, Jaipur House, Bikaner House, Patiala House, to name a few.Why did the British government allot prime land to the princely states and how? How did the construction come up and under whose architectural design? Who occupied these palaces and what were the events held? What happened to these palatial buildings after the integration of the states with the Indian Republic?This book delineates the story behind the story, documenting history through archival research, interviews with royalty and unpublished photographs from royal private collections.These princely palaces form an integral part of New Delhi’s urban topography. Built about a century ago for purposes that may not be of relevance anymore, these palaces are the relics of the past passed on to posterity, speaking of a time that was part of the continual process of knitting an unstitched destiny.A colourful procession in full regalia, uniformed men guarding the palaces, fluttering flags of myriad hues, saxophones regaling the guests, the tinkling of wine glasses… slip into a time-warp till you encounter the modern.Printed Pages: 264 with 140 colour photographs. 106571

Southern Postcolonialisms: The Global South and 'New' Literary Representations
Routledge; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0415484472; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Southern Postcolonialisms is an anthology of critical essays on new literary representations from the Global South that seeks to re-invent/reorient the ideological, disciplinary, aesthetic, and pedagogical thrust of Postcolonial Studies in accordance with the new and shifting politico-economic realities/transactions between the North and the South, as well as within the Global South, in an era of globalization. Since the emergence of Postcolonial Theory in the 1980s, the shape of the world has changed dramatically. Old Cold War boundaries have shifted in the wake of the collapse of communism, Globalization, on an unprecedented scale, has dramatically changed the meaning of time and space. The rise of the US as a new imperial power has profound implications for the world order. In the South, new emerging markets have challenged the older division of industrial ‘first world’ and non-industrial ‘third world’. In most parts of the world, the academy is struggling to keep up with these developments. One result has been a major transnational turn in the humanities and social sciences. Terms like ‘world history’, ‘globalization’, ‘glocalization’ and ‘transnationalism’ now dominate academic agendas worldwide. These changing circumstances raise far-reaching questions. What does the new emerging world order mean for established models of postcolonial theory? Is postcolonialism as a field of study being overtaken by models of globalization and transnationalism? What implications do the new configurations in the South have for postcolonial theory? This volume, drawn from a major literary conference at Delhi University, provides a set of perspectives on these questions. With a majority of contributions by scholars from the South, these research articles have a dual focus – they revisit older debates on postcolonial theory, while suggesting new perspectives and directions.

Making the case for a new kind of visual history, The Goddess and the Nation charts the pictorial life and career of Bharat Mata, ?Mother India,? the Indian nation imagined as mother/goddess, embodiment of national territory, and unifying symbol for the country?s diverse communities. Soon after her appearance in the late nineteenth century, artists began to picture her in various media, incorporating the map of India into her visual persona. Filled with illustrations, including 100 in colour, the book draws on visual studies, gender studies, and the history of cartography to offer a rigorous analysis of Mother India?s appearance in painting, print, poster art, and pictures from the late nineteenth century to the present. In The Goddess and the Nation, Sumathi Ramaswamy teaches us about pictorial ways of learning the form of the nation, of how to live with it?and ultimately to die for it. Printed Pages: 400. 109499

Passions of the Tongue: Language Devotion in Tamil India, 1891-1970
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1998; 8121508525; First Indian Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
Why would love for their language lead several men in southern India to burn themselves alive in its name? Passions of the Tongue analyzes the discourses of love, labor, and life that transformed Tamil into an object of such passionate attachment, producing in the process one of modern India's most intense movements for linguistic revival and separatism. Sumathi Ramaswamy suggests that these discourses cannot be contained within a singular metanarrative of linguistic nationalism and instead proposes a new analytic: "language devotion." She uses this concept to track the many ways in which Tamil was imagined by its speakers and connects these multiple imaginings to their experience of colonial and post-colonial modernity. Focusing in particular on the transformation of the language into a goddess, mother, and maiden, Ramaswamy explores the pious, filial, and erotic aspects of Tamil devotion; she considers why, as its speakers sought political and social empowerment, metaphors of motherhood eventually came to dominate representations of the language. In vigorously arguing for a cultural history that reveals the structures of sentiments and the ideologies of love that emerge around a language, Passions of the Tongue allows us to understand how languages can inspire their speakers to devote themselves zealously to their cause.

Incredible Ascents to Everest
Lustre Press/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8174367624; Hardcover; New; New; 
Standing 8848 metres above sea level, Mt Everest is a geographical giant. Ever since it was established that the mountain is indeed the tallest in the world humans have tried to taming it. The terrain is treacherous, the weather unpredictable and the atmospheric conditions extreme; danger of injury, illness, delirium and even death is ever present. Despite this, over the last 90 years, hundreds of men and women have attempted this perilous journey to the peak, and many have lived not only to tell the tale, but bask in the warm glory of the fame that this achievement naturally brings with it. But it is more than a quest for fame, that drives ordinary people to undertake this most extraordinary challenge of all. For people like George Leigh Mallory and the men of his generation the challenge was not just personal, they were attempting to scale the mountain on behalf of humanity. It was 29 years after Mallory’s disappearance that Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay became the first people to stand on the peak of Mt Everest. The mountain, it seemed, could be tamed. Those who came after were driven by a variety of reasons, but whatever their motivation, each of the climbers included in this book overcame extraordinary odds to reach the top of the world’s tallest mountain. In the process not only did they create history, they also shattered stereotypes to redefine the limits of possibility. Printed Pages: 224. 108611

Women's Livelihood Rights: Recasting Citizenship for Development
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0761936009; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This interdisciplinary book brings together different dimensions of women's livelihood, citizenship and development. It unravels the patriarchal structure of natural resource policy in India and argues that the context of citizenship needs to be extended to include the right to recognition of ways of living and livelihood, so that women take their legitimate space as productive human beings, entitled to dignity as a political right, and not merely to protection and welfare. The chapters in the book reflect the interrelatedness of several complex themes: the need to recognize resource rights together with livelihood strategies; the challenges of democratic governance and of restructuring institutional systems; the role of women's collective agency in development and the lessons that emerge from women's struggle for dignity and livelihood.

India Since 1980
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2011; 1107020271; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book considers the remarkable transformations that have taken place in India since 1980 a period that began with the assassination of the formidable Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. Her death and that of her son Rajiv seven years later marked the end of the Nehru-Gandhi era. Although the country remains one of the few democracies in the developing world many of the policies instigated by these earlier regimes have been swept away to make room for dramatic alterations in the political economic and social landscape. Sumit Ganguly and Rahul Mukherji two leading political scientists of South Asia chart these developments with particular reference to social and political mobilization the rise of the BJP and its challenge to Nehruvian secularism and the changes to foreign policy that in combination with its meteoric economic development have ensured India a significant place on the world stage.

Asian Rivalries: Conflict, Escalation and Limitations on Two-level Games
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2012; 9789382264095; Hardcover; New; New; 
The most typical treatment of international relations is to conceive it as a battle between two antagonistic states volleying back and forth. In reality interstate relations are often at least two-level games in which decision-makers operate not only in an international environment but also in a competitive domestic context. Given that interstate rivalries are responsible for a disproportionate share of discord in world politics this book sets out to explain just how these two-level rivalries really work. By reference to specific cases specialists on Asian rivalries examine three related questions: what is the mix of internal (domestic politics) and external (interstate politics) stimuli in the dynamics of their rivalries; in what types of circumstances do domestic politics become the predominant influence on rivalry dynamics; when domestic politics become predominant is their effect more likely to lead to the escalation or de-escalation of rivalry hostility? By pulling together the threads laid out by each contributor the editors create a ‘grounded theory’ for interstate rivalries that breaks new ground in international relations theory.Printed Pages: 268. 101470

India's Late, Late Industrial Revolution: Democratizing Entrepreneurship
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 1107032997; Hardcover; New; New; 
There is a paradox at the heart of the Indian economy. Indian businessmen and traders are highly industrious and ingenious people yet for many years Indian industry was sluggish and slow to develop. One of the major factors in this sluggish development was the command and control regime known as the License Raj. This regime has gradually been removed and after two decades of reform India is now awakening from its slumber and is experiencing a late late industrial revolution. This important new book catalogues and explains this revolution through a combination of rigorous analysis and entertaining anecdotes about India's entrepreneurs Indian firms' strategies and the changing role of government in Indian industry. This analysis shows that there is a strong case for a manufacturing focus so that India can replicate the success stories of Asian countries such as Japan South Korea and China.Printed Pages: 452 with 32 b/w illustrations & 44 tables. 101418

Beyond Nationalism Frames: Relocating Postmodernism, Hindutva, History
Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8178240866; Fourth Impression; Paperback; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
The political context in which the historian of India finds himself today, says Sumit Sarkar, is dominated by the advance of the Hindu Right and globalised forms of capitalism. Simultaneously, the historian’s intellectual context is now dominated by the marginalisation of all varieties of Marxism and an academic shift to cultural studies and postmodern critiques. In this scenario, how may a thinking historian who retains an unfashionable commitment to socialist-feminist values, alongside a democratic political vision formulated within Indian conditions of skewed social development, practice the craft of history? This excellent set of essays collectively constitutes Sumit Sarkar’s answer to this central question. The ‘Hindu Bomb’, the history of relations between communities, the issue of religious propagation and conversion, ideas of nation and woman in Tagore’s fiction, and the relationship of left-wing historiography to postmodern ideas are some of the themes critically analysed in this major collection.

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

28685 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
