Durable Disorder: Understanding the Politics of Northeast India
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0195669819; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
For decades states in India's Northeast have experienced ethnic conflict and suffered human and material losses due to insurgency and counter-insurgency operations. This book analyses the causes and seeks to comprehend the political me aning and significance of persisting political violence. The author argues that prolonged counter-insurgency operations have eroded the democratic fabric of the region and institutionalized authoritarian practices. There is a growing dissonance between the idea of ethnic homelands and the actually existing political economy of the region that makes ethnic violence and internal displacements quite predictable. The book explores the economic incorporation of the region into the global capitalist economy in the 19th century and the resultant conflict between global and local resource use regimes. It delves into the historical roots of the region's oldest armed conflict--the Naga insurgency, and carries a detailed analysis of the United Liberation Front of Assam (ULFA) during different phases of its power and influence. The author argues for a reorientation of India's policy towards the Northeast and for linking it to a new foreign policy towards Southeast Asia. India should ta ke advantage of the cultural and spatial proximity of the Northeastern states to the ASEAN region. The economic integration of the region with Southeast Asia through the pursuit of a dynamic 'Look East'policy could go a long way in bringing about stability, peace, and prosperity.

Beyond Counter-Insurgency: Breaking the Imasse in Northeast India
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2009; 0195698762; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Northeast India has endured decades of conflicts that have kept much of the region militarized, subject to restrictions on civil rights, and economically underdeveloped. In this volume, contributors from diverse fields - ranging from the social sciences, philosophy, and cultural studies, to journalism and the civil services - reflect on new ways of approaching and resolving these conflicts. Dissatisfaction with conditions on the ground and with standard policy prescriptions is the common thread that runs through the book. The essays provide analyses of the conflicts at three levels: structural determinants like poverty and underdevelopment; the nature and politics of the postcolonial state; and the agency of multiple actors with diverse motives. The authors argue that neither a development nor a military fix can achieve peace in the region. Only concerted efforts to establish the rule of law, a system of accountability, and faith in the institutions of government can break the cycle of violence. Conveying a sense of Northeast India's rich and vibrant public discourse, this book will be useful to all those interested in armed conflicts, the state of Indian democracy, civil liberties, and Northeast India.

Dilip Kumar: The Last Emperor
Rupa & Co.; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8129103613; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 24 Cms x 24 Cms 
This is the story of a man with humble beginnings yet, one who reached out and came away with a fistful of magical stardust. From being dismissed for being a non-actor in his debut film Jwarbhata to creating a small oeuvre that is admired by critics and repeatedly studied by actors to this day, Dilip Kumar has become a legend in his own lifetime. His tumultuous early years saw him crave for love with a yearning bordering on passion but it was as if fate conspired to deny it to him, till the time he found it in Saira Banu, the woman he married. He translated his real life angst into screen melodrama with such success that it brought him innumerable fans and the sobriquet of 'Tragedy King'. Although accused of being repetitive in his roles, he ensured that each of his characters was well delineated right down to the last nuance. Printed Pages: 152 001980

Expunging Variola: The Control and Eradication of Smallpox in India, 1947-1977
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2006; 8125030182; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
As a crucial component of the global smallpox eradication programme, which has been widely hailed as one of the greatest public health successes in the twentieth century, the Indian experience has some important stories to tell. Expunging Variola reveals these as it chronicles the last three decades of the anti-smallpox campaigns in India. This wide-ranging study, based on extensive archival research in India, Britain, Switzerland and the United States of America, assesses the many complexities in the formulation and implementation of the smallpox eradication programme in the subcontinent. Rather than merely cataloguing the developments of this extremely complex exercise within the World Health Organisation headquarters in Geneva and the Indian central government in New Delhi, this book adopts a much broader perspective: it makes a conscious effort to provide a detailed view by including the accounts of WHO, governmental and nongovernmental personnel on the ground. In this manner, nuanced descriptions of important – and often controversial – situations are provided. Thus, apart from acknowledging the influence of national-, state- and district-level political, economic and social structures in continually reshaping the contours of the smallpox campaigns, this work also emphasises the crucial role played by field workers in implementing and often reinterpreting health strategies proposed by Geneva and New Delhi. Original not only in perspective but in material, based as it is on a wide range of sources which have never been exploited by academics before, Expunging Variola breaks new ground in the historiography of smallpox eradication in the subcontinent. The book serves as a companion volume to Fractured States which covers the period 1800-1947. Printed Pages: 344. 031659

The Global Eradication of Smallpox (New Perspectives in South Asian History)
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8125039813; Softcover; New; 
The Global Eradication of Smallpox is a product of two series of lectures presented at the Wellcome Trust Centre for the History of Medicine at UCL, London, in 2007 and 2008. The book contextualises the global programme and the many factors contributing to the certification of smallpox eradication worldwide in 1980. The volume contains first-hand stories of the "warriors" involved in eradicating smallpox (a goal considered by many to be impossible), the difficulties faced by them and the strategies adopted to overcome these difficulties. These contributions will, therefore, be of interest to teachers and students of public health, as well as those involved in designing and managing current and future disease elimination and eradication programmes. All the articles in the volume also highlight the importance of recognising the human factor in all major global health programmes-campaign managers of global health programmes and the members of target populations interacting in a complexity of ways. This volume delves into this important element of the global smallpox eradication programmes, whilst recognising that they cannot be easily quantified or made the subject of overarching generalisations.Printed Pages: 206. 101928

Fragments of Inequality (Social, Spatial, and Evolutionary Analyses of Income Distribution Series)
Routledge; London, UK; 2007; 0415952964; First Edition; Paperback; New; 150 x 225 Mm 
Fragments of Inequality merges sociological, geospatial, and economic explanations of global inequality into a grand synthesis of the subject that breaks new ground by stressing the phenomenon's spatial foundations. Concentrating on inequality within and between regions, the book demonstrates that spatial inequality has increased in recent years. It employs modified evolutionary principles (i.e., punctuated equilibrium; not entirely smooth and linear in terms of chronological development) rather than the more abstract ones of rationality and self-interest that economists use, and on a fragmented rather than abstract conception of space. Global in its empirical coverage, it also addresses the current impact of economic globalization. Printed Pages: 280. 020839

Conflicts in the Northeast: Internal and External Effects
Vij Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2011; 9789381411124; Hardcover; New; New; 
Northeast India comprises of seven states – Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland and Tripura. This region has been the theatre of insurgency and ethnic-based armed conflicts for more than half a century making the region one of South Asia’s most disturbed areas. The instability in Northeast India is characterized by two distinct factors – ethnic clashes among the indigenous groups and political movement against the Union Government. The conflicting dynamics in the Northeast ranges from insurgency for secession to insurgency for autonomy, from terrorism to ethnic clashes, to problems of continuous inflow of migrants and the fight over resources. Moreover, vested interests and inter tribal and inter factional rivalry have led militant groups to continually clash among themselves, plunging the region in a vicious cycle of militancy, social violence and lack of economic growth. These armed conflicts have given impetus to small arms proliferation, narcotics trade and a parallel economy. The democratic deficits and how the Central Government and the states have addressed these concerns are of interest. The location of the region, politically and geographically, has a fundamental bearing on it and its people who aspire for different goals and how they try to reach these goals. The region shares borders with four countries: Myanmar, Bhutan, Bangladesh and Tibet/China and is connected to the Indian mainland by a narrow stretch of land. This adds to the trans – border ramifications to the conflicts.Printed Pages: 128. 103298

Gopal Ghose: A Jubilant Quest for the Chromatic
Mapin Publishing; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8189995782; Hardcover; New; New; 
Gopal Ghose, born in Shyambazar (Kolkata), spent his childhood and adolescence shifting between Simla, Benares and Allahabad. In 1931–35, he obtained his Diploma in Painting from the Maharaja School of Art & Craft, Jaipur, under guidance of Sailendranath Dey. Subsequently, he enrolled at the Government School of Art, Madras, in 1936 under the tutelage of Deviprosad Roy Chowdhury. Beginning with a pictorial language that was inspired to a great extent by the Bengal School diction, his personal language transformed during the 1940s. His sketches of the infamous man-made famine of 1943 in Bengal and the paintings executed during his association with the collective Calcutta Group testify his shift to a more contextually relevant pictorial diction that was oriented towards a boisterous exploration of the chromatic. But the entire range of his oeuvre testifies a more diverse formal quest that goes well beyond the celebratory. Published in association with National Gallery of Modern Art, New Delhi, and Akar Prakar, the book also includes essays by Prodosh Dasgupta, Prasanta Daw, and Purnima Sinha, who all knew Gopal Ghose, offering varied perspectives to the reader.

Adivasis and the Raj: Socio-economic Transition of the Hos, 1820-1932
Orient BlackSwan; Hyderabad, India; 2011; 8125041982; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
While recent research on adivasis under colonial rule tends to focus on issues of identity politics, categories and definitions, it is important to emphasise that the histories of adivasis were shaped by the constantly evolving British policy towards them, their own unique features, socio-cultural traditions, and the nature of their integration within the colonial state, which in turn determined their self-definitions and their relations with others. This book brings back a focus on the colonial history of adivasis and discusses the issue of their identity against this background. It is a study of the Hos of Chota Nagpur from 1820, when they first came into contact with the British, to 1932, when their protests took the form of religious reform movements in an attempt to develop a distinct tribal identity. In their encounter with the British, the Hos were confronted with several challenges, such as their role in the changing political system; their right of access to local territory and forest resources; the growing influx of outsiders into their villages; and the restructuring of indigenous institutions of authority. While dealing with these circumstances, albeit with varying degrees of success, the Hos developed an ethnic and political awareness vis-à-vis the British, other adivasis, and the non-adivasi population, leading to the Haribaba movement for self-purification and other socio-religious reform movements. Meticulously researched and replete with statistical data, a detailed glossary and bibliography, this insightful volume will be useful for scholars and students of history, sociology and anthropology.

Radical Rabindranath: Nation, Family and Gender in Tagore’s Fiction and Films
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8125050280; Hardcover; New; New; 
Much has been said and documented about the multifaceted genius of Rabindranath Tagore. Radical Rabindranath is a post-colonial reading that focuses on areas that have been marginalised because of the more dominant and compelling desire in the West to establish Tagore as a transcendent visionary and poet-philosopher. The volume breaks new ground as it critiques Tagore’s non-conformism, radical outlook and occasional ambivalence as seen in his novels and short stories. In its re-readings of his works, it meticulously analyses issues such as sexual desire, repression, and jealousy on the one hand, and nation, politics, family and gender on the other. It also shows how, amidst changing social structures, his women protagonists are motivated by promptings of self-discovery and self-realisation, as well as a compulsive need to recreate their identities. The volume breaks new ground as it critiques Tagore’s non-conformism, radical outlook and occasional ambivalence as seen in his novels and short stories.

It also shows how, amidst changing social structures, his women protagonists are motivated by promptings of self-discovery and self-realisation, as well as a compulsive need to recreate their identities. The book includes readings from selected film versions of Tagore’s fiction. These trace the deviations from the original texts to highlight how pre- and post-independence Indian/Bengali film-makers have appropriated Tagore’s literary texts by emphasising gender positions, the politics of the sexualised body and body images.Printed Pages: 389. 101859

The Cosmic Play of Power: Goddess, Tantra and Women
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8120835425; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
In Hindu theology Divine Power is conceived as a divine woman-the Goddess. Sometimes she is wholly autonomous and sometimes she is the divine spouse of the creator God, Siva or Visnu. She is also held to be the evolving material source of every created phenomenon. Religious texts like Puranas and Tantras have thoroughly investigated the mysterious nature of the Cosmic Goddess. Tantra as a religious practice endeavoured to show how through ritual and Yoga one may achieve realization of the mystery of the Supreme Goddess. Authors in Sanskrit and modern Indian languages, have poured out their ecstatic devotion to the Goddess. She is close to the heart of the passionate devotee, who adores her as mother or daughter - a mortal emotional bond with the divine so peculiar to Hindus. She is also sovereign Power a little part of which reigning royalties covet to possess in order to be good rulers. AS the divine woman she is represented in all women. Therefore women should be holding a high position amongst Hindus. But the question is, do they? In spite of the obvious contrary evidence, women do succeed in carving out a very important position in Hindu religious practices by having their alternative religious rituals highly valued by Hindu women have a very complex interrelationship.Printed Pages: 494. 102313

Being a great place of pilgrimage it is known as the Benaras of Bengal. The religions movement which is known as Vaishnavism and which Lord Chitanya initiated in mediaeval Bengal gave birth to a renaissance not only in religion but also in literature, art and architecture. While we know a lot about literature that Vaishnavism inspired, we know precious little about its impact on art and architecture. In this book Dr. Ghosh has given a full-length study of the letter which can be felt today especially in Nadia. The book containing eleven chapters, a select bibliography and illustrated. It is based on the author?s on the-spot investigation from 1972 to 1976 of almost all the Hindu religions edifices that are in situ in Nadia district. Dr. Ghosh has studied these temples from historical, religious, social, economic and cultural points of views. There is no other book which provides such a thorough study of the Nadia temples as the present book. The book not only points out the importance of Nadia temples in the evolution of Hindu architecture but also tells us why in the sphere of Indological study Nadia temples must deserve our attention. A book of great erudition ?Hindu Religions Art and Architecture in Nadia? is not merely a book on the history of art and architecture, it is also a comprehensive study of the cultural history of mediaeval India.

Sri Ramana Maharshi's Moksha: A Hindu Astrological Pilgrimage into the Life and Moksha of Sri Ramana Maharshi
Yogi Impressions Books Pvt. Ltd.; Mumbai, India; 2015; 8188479403; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
The book throws new light on the nature of Moksha, the necessary and sufficient conditions forits occurrence, and also on the very process of the Maharshi’s Moksha itself. For these reasons,the work is also bound to stand out as an important contribution to the growing corpus of ‘Ramana Literature’ in the world. Astrologers and seekers alike travelling on diverse paths will find in this book astonishing new insights, which will enable them to see ‘order’, for the first time, in the field of their enigmatic spiritual lives; a field wherein they would have seen previously no definitive pattern of spiritual destiny at all – but only a seething confusion of disillusionment and belied hopes.Dr. Sankara Bhagavadpada’s credentials as a researcher in theoretical nuclear physics (1972-1982) as well as his ensuing years of selfless service (1983-2000) as an acharya in the spiritual mission of his Master Sri Sri Bhagavan, have profoundly impressed themselves upon this work, in the form of a systematic incisive enquiry as well as an intimate familiarity and understanding of the spiritual life.Printed Pages: 300. 103497

1914-1918 Indian Troops in Europe
Mapin Publishing; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8189995472; Hardcover; New; New; 
As Britain declared war on Germany on 4 August 1914, Lord Hardinge, the Viceroy of India, announced that India too was at war, without consulting Indian political leaders. Yet, the responses to the war within India, both from the native princes and the political elite, were largely enthusiastic.Of all the colonies in the British, French and German empires of the time, British India (comprising present-day India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Burma) contributed the highest number of men. Of them, over a million served overseas between August 1914 and December 1919. This book is a visual record of their lives in Europe—in trenches, fields, farms, billets, markets, towns, cities, railway-stations, hospitals, prisoner-of-camps—as well as the world they had left behind in India, the relentless routine of travel and the way we remember them.The year 2014 marks the centenary of the start of the First World War and this book is a part of the series of commemorative events to be held over the coming four years to remember and honour those who served their countries with distinction, bravery and pride.

Three Language Formula: An Educational Problem
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1991; 8121203368; Hardcover; New; New; 
Since language is the foundation of all learning, the planning for teaching languages demands not only a scholarly but psychological approach, too. Thought the three language formula is an official language policy of the Government of India, yet the fact cannot be denied that its impact on the genre public should be assessed. The students, the teachers and the public men are directly or indirectly affected by such policies, especially when the curriculum is being loaded by the advanced scientific subjects in theist fast moving world of today. Moreover 15 languages have been given equal status in the Constitution of India. Besides, the knowledge of one of the international languages has also become imperative. The students are compelled to learn whoever languages are being offered by the authorities of the educational institutions. If the future of the mother tongue and the official language of our country remain dark where lies the future of the language of the scriptures - our cultural heritage? The learning of a common language as a great unifying force for integrating the different states is another requirement. Moreover, the autonomy given to states in the field of education creates another hurdle in the solutions, if there is any. The author is this book has made an effort to highlight such burning issues.Printed Pages: 340. 105750

The Economics of Elementary Education in India: The Challenge of Public Finance, Private Provision and Household Costs
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2006; 0761934197; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This volume discusses key aspects of the economics of the elementary education system in the poorer and educationally backward states of India, while also examining one high-achiever state—Tamil Nadu. Providing the first state-by-state analysis of major cost and financing issues, the book is based on data gathered from one of the most comprehensive surveys conducted in recent times in these states, which was specifically commissioned for this book. The survey covered 120,000 households and a thousand schools spread over 91 districts in eight states. Written by leading educational economists, the original essays in this volume - analyse the major cost and financing issues in elementary schooling in seven of the eight states surveyed—Assam, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal; - identify recent initiatives made by the governments of these seven states; - systematically scrutinise the pattern of the public spending in elementary education; - examine enrolment in government schools and the quality of education that they impart; - study household expenditure on schooling—the costs to parents of sending children to school; and - compare government schools with private schools, showing how the private sector has began to take over the what should be the responsibility of the government, particularly in the poorer states.

Asian Informal Workers: Global Risks, Local Protection
Routledge; London, UK; 2007; 0415382750; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 165 x 250 Mm 
This thoroughly researched volume surveys the nature and extent of 'informal' work in Asia, which is a powerful and under-studied force in the region. After over half a century of development, even in the fast growing economies of Asia, the formal sector, and industrial jobs have grown rather slowly, and most non-agricultural employment growth has occurred in the informal economy. At the same time as this, there has been a feminization of informal workers and growth in subcontracted homework. Drawing on detailed case studies carried out in five Asian countries - two low income (India and Pakistan) and three middle income (Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines) – where subcontracted production, usually by women and children working out of home, is now widespread, this insightful book acknowledges that home-based work is the source of income diversification for poor families, but is also the source of exploitation of vulnerable workers and child labour as firms attempt to contain costs. This wide-ranging and accessible survey, edited by key specialists in this field, along with an impressive team of contributors, examines the social protection needs of these workers arguing convincingly for public action to promote such work and protect these workers as a possible new labour intensive growth strategy in developing countries.

Kundalini Diary: A Visual Journey in Meditation
Yogi Impressions; Mumbai, India; 8190105957; First Edition; Paperback; New; New; 9 x 6 Inches 
Kundalini Diary, a visual journey in meditation, dispels the general fear-mongering that has been created around the Kundalini. To everyone’s great relief, the author asserts a very real, very reassuring possibility that the arousal of the Kundalini can actually be a natural physiological process which anyone, who is willing to submit to its discipline and is dedicated to its pursuit, can initiate with a mind free of fear and dread. Here, then, is a truly pioneering and unprecedented piece of work that not only describes but also visually represents many of the important processes and changes, transformations and insights that occur when the ’chakras’ are activated by the aroused Kundalini. Continuing in a similar vein as her earlier ’Conscious Flight Into The Empyrean’ - the author records and illustrates her amazing encounters and experiences with this ’gentle force’ in the easy-to-read format of a Diary. For those of you who have ventured into the mysterious realm of the awakened Consciousness, here is book you could well relate to. For those who have not experienced this phenomenon but practice meditation, and are curious about the nature of the Kundalini - this Diary will serve as a road map with significant signposts along the Kundalini path. Embark with it on a singular and what could, perhaps, be the most stimulating and rewarding journey in your life. Printed Pages: 224. 006459

Who Am I?: A Visual Journey of Self-discovery on the Path of Kundalini
Yogi Impressions Books Pvt. Ltd.; Mumbai, India; 2015; 8188479993; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
Down the ages, this is the ultimate question that has intrigued aspirants on the spiritual path and has been addressed by renowned sages, time and again. In fact, it was the mainstay of the revered Indian sage, Ramana Maharshi’s teaching – the core of which was the spirit of continuous ‘self-inquiry’.“When this question arose within me,” writes Santosh Sachdeva, “my body-mind organism embarked on a roller coaster journey into the subtler realms of existence. I have always held that ‘seeing is believing’, and was given a step-by-step visual knowledge that would lead me to the answer. This involved the transformation of my mental, emotional and physical bodies through the practice of Kundalini Yoga and then through Bhakti Yoga, Dhyana Yoga and Jnana Yoga.”Santosh’s illustrations are based on experiences in her meditations. They are supported with validation of her experiences by various Masters who have also addressed the question of ‘Who am I?’ in their writings.Bringing together the streams of Kundalini Yoga, Bhakti Yoga, Dhyana Yoga and Jnana Yoga, Who am I? serves as a guide to the infinite possibilities hidden in us and the larger spiritual-scape that opens with self-discovery.Printed Pages: 156. 103459

The Kundalini Artworks: A Visual Journey In Meditation
Yogi Impressions Books Pvt. Ltd.; Mumbai, India; 2015; 9789382742029; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Several readers of the author’s earlier three books forming ‘The Kundalini Trilogy’ observed that just looking at the visuals depicting the visions seen during her meditations had triggered the Kundalini energy that had been lying dormant in them. It was then realised that the visuals themselves took on the role of the Guru (the Kundalini Shakti), enabling aspirants to walk along 'Its' path and progress on their spiritual journey. So it was decided to bring all the illustrations together in The Kundalini Artworks in the pristine state as Santosh saw and drew them. To achieve this, the supporting textual entries in ‘The Kundalini Trilogy’ have been removed. The visuals resonate with a powerful spiritual energy of their own.Printed Pages: 339. 103460

Kundalini Awakening: A Visual Journey in Meditation
Yogi Impressions Books Pvt. Ltd.; Mumbai, India; 2015; 8188479683; First Edition; Softcover; New; 
In all the literature about the Kundalini, there has never been anything like this book and its illustrations in the delineation of the actual processes of its awakening. The illustrations of the workings of the ascending Kundalini energy are unique. The experiences recounted in this third volume are a culmination of Santosh’s spiritual journals, and bring to a peak the mystical events associated with the awakening of the Kundalini as described by her in Volumes I and II of her Kundalini books. The forms and scenes encountered by the inner eye are depicted with clarity and simplicity, and resonate with spiritual energy.A typical example of the great merits of Santosh’s book lies in its pointing out that the chakra or chakras which need activation will be energized first, even if apparently out of linear sequence. This is of immense significance as many people spend inordinate amounts of time worrying that the process has gone awry. This book helps you understand that another person’s experience will never be precisely duplicated in your own meditations.This third volume in the Kundalini journey is full of experiences underwritten by a universal context. These are not Hindu or yogic, but universal; such experiences are generic to the mystical tradition. Welcome to the path of transcendence that is the universal Kundalini.Printed Pages: 312. 103486

These three books represent a unique and unprecedented contribution to Kundalini literature, with unparalleled illustrative detail on the unfolding of the process.This book is once again a unique contribution to Kundalini writing as, earlier, such credible and authentic advice was normally available only with reclusive masters.

Hopefully, the answer will help you on your onward spiritual journey.Also included are relevant comments by Master Charles Cannon, an American mystic and disciple of Siddha Yoga Master, Swami Muktananda Paramahansa, which offer a contemporary understanding of the subject.Printed Pages: 140. 103487

From Indus to Independence: A Trek Through Indian History (The Onslaught of Islam), Volume 4
Vij Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2016; 9789385563867; Hardcover; New; New; 
This is the fourth volume in the Indian history series From Indus to Independence: A Trek through Indian History. Its title ‘The Onslaught of Islam’ is apt, since the book covers the initial period in which the newly founded religion of Islam started to move eastwards. Islam, almost immediately after its inception, had subdued large parts of the western regions of the Middle-East and stemmed the eastward movement of the Byzantine Empire.In ancient and medieval times all invaders of the Indian sub-continent came through the Khyber Pass in the Hindu Kush mountain ranges. The book examines the different invading armies starting with the Persian army of Darius the Great, the invasions of the Kushans and the White Huns, the repeated assaults by Mahmud of Ghazni ‘The Hammer of the Idolaters’, and the arrival of Muhammad of Ghur into the Indian sub-continent. While describing the military successes and failures of the Islamic armies the book also analyses the philosophical intermingling of cultural and religious ideas. This volume brings the narrative of Indian history to the establishment of the Delhi Sultanate. Printed Pages: 340. 113710
