Parmanu Politics: Indian Political Parties and Nuclear Weapons
Kalpaz Publications/Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789351280934; Hardcover; New; New; 
This study, focusing on the nuclear-politics interface, examines which political party should be given credit, and how much in shaping India's nuclear weapons policy. Taking into account the views of the Congress, BJP and CPI {M), the study concludes that there is no single mother of India's nuclear bomb. In the process, it approves the assumption t hat national political leadership, not the political parties, is paramount in India's nuclear weapons decision making. Furthermore, nuclear policy does not change with the change of government, and changes despite the same party forms the government again. The study highlights how the issue of nuclear weapon has an awesome appearance on the Indian political scene during the last six-decade. Thematically, the book attempts to identify the trends in the policies of the three parties, especially on the role of nuclear weapons in national security, domestic politics, and non-proliferation regime to speculate on the contours of India's future nuclear weapons policy.Printed Pages: 326. 106165

Engendering Governance Institutions: State, Market and Civil Society
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0761936084; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The question of engendering has emerged as a dominant theme in the development theory and practice in the past few years, mainly due to partial achievement of the desired goals of development in terms of attaining gender equality and women`s empowerment. Most studies in this regard focus largely on engendering the state institutions. But the context of development has changed in developing countries with the introduction of recent economic reforms. Taking note of the changed scenario, this book broadens the framework of analysis of engendering governance institutions by incorporating the institutions of market and civil society, besides the state, with a special focus on India. This book will prove valuable for university students, researchers, teachers, administrators and social activists engaged in women`s empowerment and other advocacy issues. Printed Pages: 370. 028586

Yet well-crafted industrial and health policies can strengthen each other and reconcile economic and social goals. This book advocates moving beyond traditional market failure to bring together three uncommonly paired themes: the growth of industrial capabilities the politics of health access and the geography of production and redistribution.Printed Pages: 344. 101417

The Partition Motif in Contemporary Conflicts
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0761935479; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
This important book is a dialogue on the theme of partition and its far-reaching sociological implications for communal patterns, generational dynamics and individual lives. While the governing imagery of partition is drawn from the context of India and Pakistan, the analysis compares similar processes in the context of Israel and Palestine and East and West Germany. Developing the concept of ‘partition-societies’, the volume succinctly explains the social, economic and political implications of such divisions. The lens of partition is used to focus on how societies that have experienced breaks and traumas are organized and constituted and the ways in which they deploy their understanding of the past to reconstruct themselves. The book enquires into ways in which local communities as well as wider national entities use their knowledge of the past. The international contributors to this volume show how this separation was of significance not only in the strict political sense but formed the basis for long-term processes of identity, of memory and inspiration, and the very basis on which different societies were organized.

The Contradiction in Disability Law: Selective Abortions and Rights
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 0199466653; Hardcover; New; New; 
While the Indian legislation on prenatal tests, the Pre-natal Diagnostic Techniques Act, 1994, prohibits the use of prenatal tests for sex-selection, it permits the use of these tests to pick out foetuses with disabilities. Further, the Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act, 1971 permits the termination of such lives. Does this mean that persons with disabilities do not deserve to be born as their lives are not worth living? Does disability-selective abortion, in effect, negate the rights of persons with disabilities? Can these interventions continue without breaching disability rights? The author approaches these critical questions by studying the contradiction that exists between disability-selective abortion and disability rights. Analysing the legitimacy of an automatic decision to abort a foetus with disability, this book questions the unproblematic perception towards disability-selective abortions, but without entering the realm of a woman’s right to take decisions about her body.

Appropriately Indian: Gender and Culture in a New Transnational Class
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8125045139; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
Appropriately Indian is an ethnographic analysis of the class of information technology professionals at the symbolic helm of globalizing India. Comprising a small but prestigious segment of India's labor force, these transnational knowledge workers dominate the country's economic and cultural scene, as do their notions of what it means to be Indian. Drawing on the stories of Indian professionals in Mumbai, Bangalore, Silicon Valley and South Africa, Smitha Radhakrishnan explains how these high-tech workers create a "global Indianness" by transforming the diversity of Indian cultural practices into a generic, mobile set of "Indian" norms. Female information technology professionals are particularly influential. By reconfiguring notions of respectable femininity and the good Indian family, they are reshaping ideas about what it means to be Indian. The author explains how this transnational class creates an Indian culture that is self-consciously distinct from Western culture, yet compatible with Western cosmopolitan lifestyles. She describes the material and symbolic privileges that accrue to India's high-tech workers, who often claim ordinary middle-class backgrounds, but are overwhelmingly urban and upper caste. They are also distinctly apolitical and individualistic. Members of this elite class practice a decontextualized version of Hinduism, and they absorb the ideas and values that circulate through both Indian and non-Indian multinational corporations. Ultimately, though, global Indianness is rooted and configured in the gendered sphere of home and family. Printed Pages: 252. 037294

The Search for Purpose and Meanings: In Life and From Death
Low Price Publications/D.K. Publishers Distributors Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 8173862826; Softcover; New; 
We identify ourselves and are attached to material possessions and physical comforts. Some of us take materialism to be more important than spiritual or ethical values. We have accepted this temporary condition to be final and as a consequence live purposeless and meaningless lives. A poet has aptly said that we can pass our night laughing and joking, but do not know about the morning. Life is transient, and nobody is immortal. We don`t have to push death to the farthest extremes of our consciousness. It can be a good reminder to bring back to our consciousness what is really important in life to us.This book will help you to find your mission in life, give meaning to your existence, and guide you to realise your true self. 110926

Ladakh: A Photo Travelogue
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789385285028; First Edition; Softcover; New; 23 x 31 Cm Sohini Sen 
Unlike any other book so far published on Ladakh — and quite possibly unlike any other travel book published till date — here is a travel story told through high-resolution colour photographs laid out in a comic-strip format. Two lady travellers arrive in Leh one local summer morning. In the course of their journey through Ladakh, they get to know about the war between ‘Nanak Lama’ and a demon and watch masked lamas offer a comic interlude amid serious rituals at the Phyang Monastery festival. On their way to Nubra Valley via Khardung Pass (altitude: 18,380 ft), the travellers meet animals with an identity crisis, and a donkey who will never lend its owner an ear again. In the valley, a 32-metre tall statue of Maitreya Buddha shares the limelight with double-humped camels. The ladies are bowled over by their names. The journey to Pangong Lake (altitude: 13,900 ft) and back has quite a few highpoints — Shey Palace, Thiksey and Hemis monasteries, the Chang Pass, and the curious case of the frozen marmot. A nomadic stay in a tent by the enchanting Pangong with its ever-changing colours reveals a considerable bird population, some with horns on their heads. The Tso Moriri Wetlands combine the beauty of the Lake Districts and the ruggedness of the Wild West. Almost 250 km from Leh, Tso Moriri lake (altitude: 15,075 ft) is visited by very few tourists. Korzok village near the lake helps the ladies peek into the lives of Changpa nomads who do not let the grass grow under their feet. The same cannot be said of their sheep. With its fascinating subject, over 400 crisp photos, and the easy, humorous writing style, this book will appeal immensely to casual tourists, serious travellers, even those keen on armchair travelling.Printed Pages: 96. 102444

Eco-Theology and the Scriptures: A Revisit of Christian Responses (Christian Heritage Rediscovered: 10)
Christian World Imprints/B.R. Publishing Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789351480198; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The book is a special endeavor for readers of any sector to enable them to reread the Biblical Texts entirely from non-traditional Ecological perspectives and motivate them to join hands with the people who have genuine concern for the Creation.Starting with the more cautious attitude of many countries shown at the `Rio + 20' Conference and comparing them with the heady promises made at the Rio Earth Summit in 1992, the Author shows that for many modern economies, implementation of `Green' movements has become a hard task as the issue of eradication of poverty comes into conflict and in that, the latter often wins. So, the question is left with these economies to decide whether they want to head towards Green Economy, or Great Economy, or Big Economy.He boldly addresses the Colonial character of Christianity imposed on the Indian sub-continent, which stressed the dualist concept of the Earth and Heaven, which puts emphasis on the salvation of the soul rather than that of Creation. The Author has tried to show linkage between Colonialism and Environmental damage, he further proposes for the review of inherited mindset of Indian Christians, that has become indifferent towards the Ecological Problems).He then charts the development of Indian Christian Theology and its great thinkers with particular reference to the second half of the 20th century and proposes a complete review for its deconstruction and replacement with a sound Biblical and Theological Methodology.This informative and thoughtful work also deals with Socio-Economic and Historical subjects and is thus meant for Ecologists, Historians, Economists, Christian Laity, Church Clergies, and Students & Researchers. An ordinary person will be left less informed without having read the book.Printed Pages: 328. 106411

Warfare in Ancient India: In Theory and Practice
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8124607338; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Differing from the existing studies on the warfare of ancient India; Warfare in Ancient India: In Historical Outline is a comprehensive study of the defence policies, construction of forts, arms and ammunitions, commissariat, the espionage system, the rules of aggression and defence, the technical matters and war ethics, based upon a thorough comprehension of Sanskrit and Sanskritic sources. This being done based on the existing and newly-explored sources. It also analyses the diplomatic and economic factors in aggressive designs, one of the major elements of the political history of early India. This volume partially deals with the activities of the Indo-Aryans and their continuous struggle for survival against hostile environment in Indus Valley and their expansion towards the east along the major rivers of north India, leading to frequent invasions and attacks. Thus came the warlike traits of some major Vedic deities, ancient battles, arms and armour, chariots, forts, arrays, Jain war canons, and major weapons cited in the Mahabharata, Shilappadikaram, Manasollasa, Kural, etc. as the main focus of the book. It also vividly addresses the war policies and tactics enunciated by Kautilya in Arthashastra and Manu in Manu-Smriti, and differentiations in their views on few aspects. The inevitable factors that led to wars — survival, and domination and economic exploitation — are also well dealt. The book should enthuse the interests and spirit of all those who are into the study and research of history, warfare and ancient Indian culture mainly from the Vedic viewpoint.Printed Pages: 308. 100504

Witches, Tea Plantations, and Lives of Migrant Laborers in India
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789382993452; Hardcover; New; New; 
Bringing together a holistic theoretical perspective drawing from sociology anthropology and postcolonial history the author argues that witchcraft accusations among the adivasi worker communities in the tea plantations of West Bengal are a protest against the plantation management. Thus the witchcraft accusations are not as ‘exotic and primitive rituals of a backward’ adivasi community during times of stress but rather as a powerful protest organized by a marginalized community against its oppressors. The book also illuminates how witchcraft accusations should be interpreted within the backdrop of labor-planters relationship characterized by rigidity of power patronage and social distance.Printed Pages: 210. 101489

My Days with Ramkinkar Baij
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 8192091244; Hardcover; New; New; 
My Days with Ramkinkar Baij, an English translation of the original Bengali Shilpi Ramkinkar Alaapchari (In Conversation with Artist Ramkinkar) is the result of the author’s long and close association with Ramkinkar Baij, one of modern India’s finest sculptors. This was an association that brings forth many cherished memories of the days in Santiniketan, when Ramkinkar was at his prolific and creative best.As Dr Bandyopadhyay puts it, ‘The very meaning of Ramkinkar is a huge amount of enterprise and a tumult of joy. Those who came slightly closer to him occasionally got to see another avatar—a serious, sombre, Ramkinkar, self-imprisoned within an introspective castle.’This book gives the reader a chance to delve into the mind of this great man and share some special moments of his life.Printed Pages: 316 with 39 colour illustrations, 100 paintings & 155 colour photographs. 106514

Cinema and Censorship: The Politics of Control in India
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8125036652; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
This ‘narrative historiography’ traces the evolution of censorship discourses in post-colonial India, delineates the theoretical bases of censorship claims and contentions, and uncovers its many socio-political dimensions and complexities. The exercise of film censorship in modern India, Bhowmik argues, must be de-linked from its colonial origins, as such a practice violates the sacrality of the constitutionally granted freedom of speech and expression in the post-independence system. Penetrating the haze of bureaucratic manipulation, judicial laxity, vested interest and political or public pressure surrounding the film censorship debate, the author disagrees with the popular notion of censorship as moral restraint. Rather, he reveals that its true import lies in the propagation of political agendas. The overarching chronological schema that he devises outlines the intricate interplay of policies of governance and strictures of censorship. As in his other books – Indian Cinema Colonial Contours (1995) and Behind the glitz: Exploring an Enigma called Indian Film Industry (2008) – Bhowmik grounds the specific topicality of Cinema and Censorship within the wider contexts of film history and culture. A riveting read, this book goes into the very heart of the problematiques of Indian cinematic censorship. Printed Pages: 396. 026763

Barely seven years after the Wright Brothers flew for the first time a heavier than air machine at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, USA, in 1903, the first crates containing two Boxkite aeroplanes landed at Karachi. In December 1910, they flew in the Indian skies for the first time, heralding the coming of the air age to India. Barely seven years after the Wright Brothers flew for the first time a heavier than air machine at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, USA, in 1903, the first crates containing two Boxkite aeroplanes landed at Karachi. In December 1910, they flew in the Indian skies for the first time, heralding the coming of the air age to India. It was, however, in early 1916, with the pressure of war on, that the British government decided to send military aeroplanes to India. Prior to that, a flying school had been opened in early 1914 but due to the war, it closed down. Thereafter, the miniscule presence of the Royal Flying Corps/Royal Air Force (RFC/RAF) in India (mostly in the North-West Frontier area) steadily increased and served right through the Twenties and Thirties, until World War II began and beyond it up to 1947. This was the period when the tactics and organisational structure of the new service gradually changed through innovation and emulation of the other two services until the Indian Air Force (IAF) came into existence in October 1932. It was in this period that there was a demand for Indians to be recruited into the RAF. The British flatly refused but eventually conceded that a separate service for India should be established.Printed Pages: 400. 104355

Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1998; 8121205700; Hardcover; New; New; 
Jammu And Kashmirhlu has basically been a Teacher of English literature but while working in the Amar Mahal Museum and Library, Jammu for the last two and half decades his mind got yoked to many Devotions of Jammu and Kashmir Art and architecture, History and culture, Mysticism and literature. And he passes from one devotion to the other with athletic ease.The present book is divided into two parts: one is concerned with Jammu and the other with Kashmir. Then each part is subdivided into various sections; first, art and architecture; second, history and third, literature.Essays on art and architecture: this section attempts at a descriptive and critical Study of ancient monuments of Jammu and Kashmir. The Author has detailed the Geographic and scenic beauty of the places with actuality and narrated the historical background in quite a succinct manner. He has examined the Religious aspect and then in the case of paintings his analytical faculty marks the critical one.Historical Essays: In this section Prof. Wakhlu writes about the historical personages with vivid dramatic effectiveness without sacrificing the historical accuracy. He has written only about the great and noble historical figures ignoring many others of less significance.Literary Essays: In the domain of literature he indeed has self-confidence and ease. Apart from English he also had the opportunity to study both the Dogri and Kashmiri literature in depth. In this section he has taken care to include only a few chosen representative poets.By a slightest reflection on this work one can feel that he possesses a firm Sense of composition, a sweep, and compact and delightful verve and eloquence.Printed Pages: 372. 105896
