30005 Satyendra K. Sen Chib (author) & Late Ustad Ali Akbar Khan (frwd)
Companion to North Indian Classical Music
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8121510902; Second Revised and Enlarged Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
With growing interest in North Indian classical music, both in India and abroad, and inspite of several books on specific topics which have appeared in recent times, there was a need for a comprehensive reference book in English which would give adequate and precise information on various aspects of North Indian or Hindustani classical music at one place. For general readers, students, and practising musicians, the Companion to North Indian Classical Music has served to fill this gap. With more than 1200 entries, this book gives, in an intelligible and straightforward manner, information about various ragas of Hindustani classical music and their scales and performance times, tals used, their structure and ethos, nomenclature and terms in currency; historical background and development of forms, and various genres and gharanas: biographical notes about outstanding artists and performers, both vocalists and instrumentalists of the twentieth century along with performers ascending with the twenty-first century. It also includes musicologists of note, and information about various musical instruments and their evolution. Some notations used in this book have been revised. The Appendices include a comprehensive list of ragas and their scales, etc. and the Discography (App. D) gives details of cassettes and CDs to facilitate listening to good music, and performances by maestros. Besides correcting some errors and providing for omissions, this second revised edition of the Companion includes new material. Printed Pages: 542. 037325

Energy Opportunities and Social Responsibility
Jaico Publishing House; Delhi, India; 8184950004; Softcover; New; 
Energy is an indispensable resource that is required to run the economy and sustain the well being of people. The rapidly developing economies of Third World countries like China and India need to generate increasing amounts of energy as they grow. However, the situation has become complicated after discovery of the functional linkages between CO2 emission from fossil fuels like coal and petroleum. Hence, there is a global search for carbon free energy technology.Generation of energy is both a technological issue as well as a social commitment. The author has addressed these issues covering all major methods of energy generation. He believes that without social support, the technologists cannot derive effective gains from their discoveries. While dealing with each type of technology for generation, the reciprocity between theory and social response has been maintained throughout the book.Key Features Primary focus is on India and China, their research for increasing amounts of energy resources to meet the domestic demands Presents detailed discussion both on the conventional non-renewable sources, as well as on renewable sources of energy.Printed Pages: 388. 105592

Three Sides of Life: Short Stories from Bengali Women Sisters
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0195685857; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
This selection of fifteen stories by five exceptional Bengali women writers looks at the lives of women who are neither stars nor martyrs in the feminist cause. They are voices, individual and particular, of women leading their everyday lives, nursing their joys and sorrows. These women write out of their bodies and the intimate spaces around them; they write the history and mathematics of their lives; they compose a deeper reality; they give us an atmosphere, a sky, and a house with many doorways helping us to reclaim their original energy and wonderful clarity. The manushi created by the woman writer speaks in several voices and addresses issues, emotional and psychological, that affect their lives and control their decisions: from the low-caste woman of Mahasweta Devi's story to the teenage immigrant in America of Nabaneeta Dev Sen's, from the girl child battling humiliation in Bani Basu's to the victim of marital exploitation in Ashapurna Devi's, and the women of the old-age home in Suchitra Bhattacharya's tale. These women form a small strong chorus, which testifies that women's writing is more than a literary act it is imagining a world into being. It is through the battles that they must fight daily that the women explore their emotional, social, and economic selfhood. The stories, at once linear and circular, offer fewer closures than the work of male writers, and carry with them the echoes of loss. 019709

30016 Saumya Dey
Becoming Hindus and Muslims: Reading the Cultural Encounter in Bengal: 1342-1905
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8121512905; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
This book begins by interrogating the assumption that coherent religious identities emerged in the Indian subcontinent only in the nineteenth century, when the colonial state initiated the census and made it necessary for Indians determinately to identify themselves as Hindus or Muslims. The author studies the medieval Bengali kavyas and discerns the beginnings of religious identities in them. The kavyas, thus, he argues, formed an emotional inheritance which impacted the literature and sense of history which emerged in colonial Bengal under European influence. In the second-half of the nineteenth century, this new literature, teamed with a freshly acquired historical consciousness, demonstrated the various ways in which the contemporary Hindu and Muslim intelligentsia tried to make sense of each other. In the process, the literature of the period, the book suggests, both reflected and aided the gradual ‘becoming’ of Hindus and Muslims as political communities. Printed Pages: 313. 038553

"Daughter of a Drunkard Monk" is Saumya Kaushiksdebut novel, being a hard-core feminist the writer has penned down the adversities faced by women in a male patriarchal society The book picks out those issues which prevail in the society and are forgotten down in the papers and news. "DODM" is the story of the protagonist which can be any ordinary girl in similar situation. What, however, appears extraordinary is the grit and courage and confidence with which the protagonist faces all verities of adversities, many of which are simply reflections of her 'gender' and the societal/ patriarchal attitude towards girls in 'such/ similar' situations. 107043

Stitches on Time: Colonial Textures and Postcolonial Tangles
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0195668375; First Indian Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
"Modernity has defined itself against enchantment, yet continually produced new enchantments. Saurabh Dube helpfully establishes this pattern, and especially sheds light on the ways in which colonial and postcolonial power relationships are interwoven with spriritual meanings. He rightly and persuasively brings such apparently marginal actors as evangelical missionaries and native Indian Christians onto center stage, and he does so with grace, lucidity, and insight." -- Craid Calhoun, President, Social Science Research Council "Saurabh Dube's book will make a signal contribution to the political and theoretical legacy of South Asian subaltern studies. Based at he Colegio de Mexico and in conversation with scholars and intellectuals based in Latin America, Dube's book will enhance the dialogue between Latin American critical social thought and subaltern studies already underway. Historically grounded and theoretically sophisticated, Stitches on Time conveys the felling of a new gaze in the tradition of subaltern studies, an awareness of a daily life out of place in relation to the subject of scholarly pursuit." -- Walter D. Mignolo, Duke University Destined to become a key work of subaltern studies and a crucial intervention in postcolonial scholarship, Stitches on Time probes the relationships between empire and modernity, nation and history, the colonial and the postcolonial, and power and difference. Saurabh Dube combines history and anthropology to provide critical understandings of the theory and practice of historical ethnography and contemporary historiography. Drawing on extensive archival research and innovative fieldwork as well as political economy and social theory--including considerations of gender--he unpacks the implications of specific Indian pasts from the middle of the nineteenth century through the end of the twentieth century. Dube provides incisive accounts of the interactions between North American evangelical missio naries and Christian converts of central India, and between colonial legal systems and the Indian popular laws. He reflects on the difficulties of history writing by considering the production and reception of recent Hindu nationalist histories. Assessing the work of the South Asian Subaltern Studies Collective, he offers substantial critical readings of major writings by Ranajit Guha, Dipesh Chakrabarty, Partha Chatterjee, and others. Dube develops the concept and practice of a "history without warranty" as a means of rigorously rethinking categories such as modernity, colonialism, the West, the postcolonial, and the nation.

Goa 2011: Reviewing and Recovering Fifty Years
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789351250708; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book is the outcome of the national seminar, “Goa 2011: Reviewing and Recovering 50 years”, organised on the occasion of the golden jubilee of Goa’s liberation from Portuguese rule. The seminar intended as the first of a series of multi-disciplinary seminars on Goan themes and issues, was convened by the Xavier Centre of Historical Research (XCHR) and the Thomas Stephens Konknni Kendr (TSKK) to begin a process of self-education and knowledge-creation to comprehend how the people of this state have shaped and directed their post-colonial history and how specific socio-political and cultural contexts have influenced that contemporary history. The book underlines the rapid and at times traumatic social changes Goan Society is undergoing today. Whether it be in regard to the construction of their past or the preservation of their culture, including that of the subalterns and the marginalized; whether in controversies over their collective identity as Goans, expressed in their language or their politics, whether in relation to the land and its commodification by the market or its objectification with unsustainable development; whether in the search for a relevant education or the struggles of civil society movements—everywhere there is evidence of the complex and multiple impact of rapid change at various levels. What surely is the need of the hour is now to find a horizon of hope within which to understand our world so as to be able to change it as subjects, rather than just coping with it as objects of our own history.

Maa.Siddheshwari
Lotus/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8174361219; Hardcover; New; New; 
In this book of reminiscences and records, Savita Devi along with Vibha S. Chauhan, lovingly and painstakingly traces the journey of her mother's life - the life of the legendary Hindustani classical singer Siddheshwari Devi. The authors describe in detail Siddheshwari's rise from an uncared-for orphan in her aunt's house in Banares to a famous classical singer and recipient of the Padmashree. The book takes readers through the gamut of her life; its struggles and glories; the rich and varied styles of music of the Banares gharana that she perfected; her interactions with other artists who gave shape and colour to Indian classical music. We glimpse the birth and evolution of a brilliant singer; we travel with her through her long years of riaz under her gurus; we applaud her when she performs and reveals nuances of thumri gayaki hitherto unknown; we suffer with her in her many sorrows, rejoice with her when she tastes success both in her personal and professional life. In this exhaustive and definitive biography of a great vocalist, the authors show us closely the angst, hardships, joys and sensibilities that are at the core of a true artist.

The Pauranic Lore of Holy Water-places with special Reference to Skanda Purana
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1983; 8121501474; First Edition; Cloth; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
The present work is based on an extensive and critical study of the legends connected with Holy water-places. Mythological, historical, geographical and scientific study of the legends is interesting and thought provoking. The Skanda Purana (1000 AD to 700 BC) has been made the basis of this study as amongst all, this work deals with this topic most elaborately and covers almost all the tirthas referred to in various texts. Most of the legends have been studied critically and a comparative study has been done from the Vedas, Brahmanas, Upanisads, Epics and other Puranas. Various other mythologies such as Egyptian, Iranian, Greek, North American, African, Babylonian, Roman, Mexican etc. have also been compared to. The imminent purpose of the talks has been studied under various motifs. The author's psycho-scientific method of analysis and interpretation makes the work extremely fascinating and informative. The author has also drawn attention to the medical analysis of various water-tirthas. The work is a valuable addition to the Pauranic and mythological literature. Printed Pages: 351. 012907

When Awareness Becomes Natural: A Guide to Cultivating Mindfulness in Everyday Life
Shambhala Publication/TBI; New Delhi, India; 2016; 1611803071; Softcover; New; 
The flame of wisdom can be kindled in the midst of any life, even one that might seem too full of personal and professional commitments to allow for it. Such is the teaching of Sayadaw U Tejaniya, who himself learned to cultivate awareness in the raucous years he spent in the Burmese textile business before taking his final monastic ordination at the age of thirty-six. Train yourself to be aware of the clinging and aversion that arise in any situation, he teaches. If you can learn to do that, calm and deep insight will naturally follow. It’s a method that works as well for sorting the laundry or doing data entry as it does in formal sitting meditation. “The object of attention is not really important,” he teaches, “the observing mind that is working in the background to be aware is of real importance. If the observing is done with the right attitude, any object is the right object.” Printed Pages: 208. 112030

30041 Sa’diyya Shaikh
Sufi Narratives of Intimacy: Ibn ’Arabi, Gender, and Sexuality
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8121512557; First Indian Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
Thirteenth-century Sufi poet, mystic, and legal scholar Muhyi al-Din ibn al-‘Arabi gave deep and sustained attention to gender as integral to questions of human existence and moral personhood. Reading his works through a critical feminist lens, Sa’diyya Shaikh opens fertile spaces in which new and creative encounters with gender justice in Islam can take place. Grounding her work in Islamic epistemology, Shaikh attends to the ways in which Sufi metaphysics and theology might allow for fundamental shifts in Islamic gender ethics and legal formulations, addressing wide-ranging contemporary challenges including questions of women’s rights in marriage and divorce, the politics of veiling, and women’s leadership of ritual prayer. Shaikh deftly deconstructs traditional binaries between the spiritual and the political, private conceptions of spiritual development and public notions of social justice, and the realms of inner refinement and those of communal virtue. Drawing on the treasured works of Sufism. Shaikh raises a number of critical questions about the nature of selfhood, subjectivity, spirituality, and society to contribute richly to the prospects of Islamic feminism as well as feminist ethics more broadly.

30044 Scharada Dubey
Bol Bam: Approaches To Shiva
Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789383260539; Softcover; New; 
Faith remains strong, even in the midst of devastation. We are stimulated daily by constant reminders of God around us, says Scharada Dubey. There are the daily calls to prayer, devotional songs, calendar pictures, roadside shrines, but it is pilgrimages that are the most visible way in which faith is expressed. A yatra is essentially a shared spiritual journey and the writer has undertaken many of her own, particularly to places central to the worship of Shiva. ‘Shiva’s wild, untamed manifestation resonates strongly with millions of people who still, willy-nilly, in close contact with the features and forces of nature,she says, explaining her choice of subject.To some, this choice seemed an odd one, since there are many reasons for non-belief today. But Dubey chooses not to turn her back on ‘such cultural riches’. Large numbers of people move about the country, in obedience to the rhythm of a seasonal call that their forefathers have answered. This book seeks to explore several such ‘yatras’through the particular prism of Shiva worship. Shiva occupies a unique place in the Hindu pantheon as a deity equally close to the hearts of vagrants and addicts, the disabled and the no-hopers and to the more empowered sections of society. Perceptions of Shiva and of his worshippers provide the conversational cues for interviews with the people whose accounts and words enrich this book. In it, readers will meet pilgrims and priests, public administrators and all mainstream or marginal participants in journeys undertaken to please their god. Dubey joins the throng around Shiva, observing, listening, absorbing the deep, quiet enchantment of faith. 109624

Caravans: Indian Merchants on the Silk Road (The Story of Indian Business)
Allen Lane/Penguin Books; New Delhi, India; 2015; 0670087300; Hardcover; New; New; 13 x 20 Cm 
Caravans tells the fascinating story of tens of thousands of intrepid Multani and Shikarpuri merchants who risked everything to travel great distances and spend years of their lives pursuing their fortunes in foreign lands.From the sixteenth through the nineteenth centuries, these merchants lived as 'guests' in cities and villages across Afghanistan, Central Asia, Iran and Russia. Setting aside beliefs that caravan traders were simple peddlers, Scott C. Levi examines the sophisticated techniques these merchants used to convert a modest amount of merchandise into vast portfolios of trade and moneylending ventures.Caravans also challenges the notion that the rising tide of European trade in the Indian Ocean usurped the overland 'Silk Road' trade and pushed Central Asia into economic isolation. In fact, as Levi shows, it was at precisely the same historical moment that thousands of Multanis began making their way to Central Asia, linking the early modern Indian and Central Asian economies closer together than ever before.

Sufis and Saints' Bodies: Mysticism, Corporeality & Sacred Power in Islam
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8121512042; First Indian Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
Islam is often described as abstract, ascetic, and uniquely disengaged from the human body. Scott Kugle refutes this assertion in the first full study of Islamic mysticism as it relates to the human body. Examining Sufi conceptions of the body in religious writings from the late fifteenth through the nineteenth century, Kugle demonstrates that literature from this era often treated saints' physical bodies as sites of sacred power. Sufis and Saints' Bodies focuses on six important saints from Sufi communities in North Africa and South Asia. Kugle singles out a specific part of the body to which each saint is frequently associated in religious literature. The saints' bodies, Kugle argues, are treated as symbolic resources for generating religious meaning, communal solidarity, and the experience of sacred power. In each chapter, Kugle also features a particular theoretical problem, drawing methodologically from religious studies, anthropology, studies of gender and sexuality, theology, feminism, and philosophy. Bringing a new perspective to Islamic studies, Kugle shows how an important Islamic tradition integrated myriad understandings of the body in its nurturing role in the material, social, and spiritual realms.

This book shows people how to create a mindset and systems that perpetually attract the right customers.

Marketing isn't a task, a role or speciality.

Here is the first historically accurate graphic-novel version of a legendary event in Japanese history. In the eighteenth century, forty-seven samurai avenged the death of their master in a plot involving over two years of secrecy. After succeeding in their mission, the masterless samurai all committed ritual suicide. The story, which is a national legend, remains a most potent example of Japan’s deeply rooted cultural imperatives of honor, persistence, loyalty, and sacrifice, and of bushido—the samurai code.

Devil May Care is being published in May 2008 to celebrate the Centenary of Ian Fleming’s birth. This new instalment in the adventures of the world’s most iconic spy has been written by one of Britain’s most admired novelists, Sebastian Faulks `That a literary novelist of Faulks's calibre should take on Fleming's mantle is a fitting tribute to one of Britain's greatest thriller writers.'—Ben Macintyre, The Times `Move over Harry Potter, the published event of this year will be the new James Bond book, Devil May Care by Sebastian Faulks' —Daily Express `The biggest literary thrill of 2008' —Observer `Fans of James Bond ... are in for a vintage year' —Guardian `I fell to my knees and wept with envy and rage last week when I opened my morning newspaper to discover that Ian Fleming's estate had asked Sebastian Faulks to write the next James Bond book' —Jeremy Clarkson, Sunday Times 'My novel is meant to stand in the line of Fleming’s own books, where the story is everything.” said Faulks, “In his house in Jamaica, Ian Fleming used to write a thousand words in the morning, then go snorkelling, have a cocktail, lunch on the terrace, more diving, another thousand words in late afternoon, then more Martinis and glamorous women. In my house in London, I followed this routine exactly, apart from the cocktails, the lunch and the snorkelling.” Picking up from where Fleming left off in 1966 with The Living Daylights / Octopussy, Faulks has written the perfect continuation of the James Bond legacy. Devil May Care is set during the Cold War and features all the glamour, thrills and excitement that one would expect from any adventure involving Bond... James Bond.' Printed Pages: 320. 027754

Islam and Healing: Loss and Recovery of an Indo-Muslim Medical Tradition
Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2007; 8178241951; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
Indo-Muslim medicine—or the Unani tradition—developed in South Asia alongside Mughal political culture. While it healed the body, it also had a profound bearing on the social fabric of the region. Seema Alavi’s book shows the nature and extent of this Islamic healing tradition’s interaction with Indian society and politics from roughly 1600 to 1900. Drawing on Persian texts for the pre-colonial phase, Alavi then moves beyond the standard colonial archive to deploy unused Urdu texts, pamphlets, local newspapers, and private family records. The result is a substantial revision of the existing historiography of Indian Islam’s encounter with Western medicine. This book represents, in fact, the first major effort at telling the story of an Islamic healing tradition and its subsequent transformation by locating it within both pre-colonial and colonial time frames. Alavi shows precisely how, in the period of high colonialism, established practitioners kept their tradition alive. Their struggles to preserve and recast the Mughal legacy, control knowledge, and consolidate doctrinaire languages of power when confronting print culture and Western education are compellingly documented and analysed. Without disprivileging the state, she demonstrates how an in-house struggle for hegemony can be as potent as external power during processes that define medical, social, and national modernity. In the present context, where West-dominant globalization demonizes both Islam and cultural alternatives, the implications of this book are profound. A pioneering work on social and medical history, it will interest all historians, students of Islam’s interaction with the West, alternative modernities, and the ancient as well as contemporary struggle of the local against the global.

The Eighteenth Century in India
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0195692012; First Paperback Edition; Paperback; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
The eighteenth century in India was an important period of transition and remains the subject of continuing debate among scholars of late medieval and modern Indian history. The two main debates on the eighteenth century are (1) the nature of transition from a centralized Mughal polity to the emergence of regional confederations, and (2) the nature of the transformation brought about by the increasing role of the English East India Company in the economic, commercial, and financial life of the subcontinent. The themes addressed are: the nature of Mughal polity; the decline of the Mughal empire; 'economic prosperity versus the Dark Ages' thesis; and 'the continuity versus change' thesis. This volume presents extracts and selections from the key interventions in the historiographical debates, along with an introduction and a bibliography, which provide a concise and useful survey of the field for the benefit of students.

However, sustainable ecotourism – tourism carried out within certain defined norms, can lead to the development of the people. Ecotourism Development in India attempts to present a comprehensive and analytical perspective on the development of ecotourism in India . This book showcases the key policies and legal frameworks linked to ecotourism development at national and international levels. The consequences of large-scale models of ecotourism in terms of responses and impacts, both negative and positive, are presented through select case studies. It is intended to facilitate effective formulation and implementation of conservation and development policies and practices.

Towards Personal Excellence: Psychometric Tests and Self-Improvement Techniques for Managers
Response Books; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0761935045; Second Edition; Paperback; New; 
From the Foreword by Udai Pareek, ‘Even though the need for self-development and increasing the level of excellence and effectiveness is high, people do not have enough time for self-study, nor for attending courses being offered. Moreover, people may like to go at their own pace, select the time they can find to devote to self-development, and choose the areas more relevant to them at that time. The present volume seems to fulfil these needs—to help the readers to pick up the areas they are more concerned with…. Seema Sanghi has simplified the various concepts and theories in the form of practical hints for increasing excellence of various personal and interpersonal skills. Howsoever busy an individual may be, he or she can use the book to review his/her level of effectiveness, and use the tips to enhance it.’ The second edition of this enormously successful book is packed with more ways to maximize your potential with added sections on self-evaluation. This edition contains more ‘mirror image’ questionnaires covering a wider scope of multiple managerial competencies, including creativity and innovation. The book contains six pilot-tested modules each with a cluster of skills and a self-assessment questionnaire (with response sheets), which enables the reader/user to record individual strengths and weaknesses to keep track of the process of learning. The author covers the following areas: – Managerial Skills – Communication Skills – Group Dynamics Skills – Environment Management Skills – Self-enhancement Powers – Career Planning.

Gender, Conflict and Peace in Kashmir: Invisible Stakeholders
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2013; 1107041872; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book demonstrates that gender is a key component of conflict and peace discourse. The marginalization of women in conflict and peace is all pervasive. Kashmir is a mirror image of this global scenario. Kashmiri women aided the militant movement in significant ways though they did not take part in direct combat. They played key roles to sustain and nourish the movement – as protestors protectors and motivators and facilitators. Their experiences of participation in the conflict however remain subdued by the dominant masculinist discourse. Kashmiri women are excluded from the militancy discourse as contributors as well as from peacemaking discourse as stakeholders. The study interrogates theory and practice of women’s participation in conflict and argues that changed gender-roles during conflict do not necessarily revolutionize socially ascribed norms. The book also examines the experiences of women in sustaining conflict to make a case for their due place in negotiating formal peace.Printed Pages: 196. 101495

Jain Temples of Rajasthan
Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts/Abhinav Publications; New Delhi, India; 2001; 8170173485; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Jain temples at Dilwa?a in Mount Abu evoke a sense of awe for their sculptural artistry. Unnamed artists who had, for years, created exquisite pieces in ivory, now worked with marble, sculpting ceiling and domes, columns and walls, creating works of unparalleled beauty. They carried forward, and deepened, a rich tradition of temple building in India, with their plethora of images from Indian myths and legends. The most outstanding feature of these temples are the thousand-petalled lotuses that decorate the domes in the ra?gama??apas, signifying a very highly evolved technical and artistic achievement.Some 200 km away from the Mount Abu, in Ranakpur, the Adisvara Temple is an achievement of a different kind. It is renowned for its architectural splendour; a thousand columns that define its wondrous spaces are all unique, as no two are alike.Printed Pages: 221. 101640

On Zhang-Zhung
Paljor Publications/Library of Tibetan Works & Archives; New Delhi, India; 2000; 8186470247; Softcover; New; 
The country of Zhang-zhung, the stronghold of the ancient Bon religion, is generally believed to have been situated at the western end of Tibet, in the region around Mount Kailasa. Religious Bon texts handed down to us in Tibetan translations mention the fact that these texts were originally written in the language of Zhang-zhung, but due to the scarcity of material in this language, many scholars tended to dismiss this as a fabrication of the Bonpos.In this Book Professor Hummel revisits the whole issue of Zhang-zhung, concentrating particularly on its language, but also on the actual size and geographical position of this kingdom.The studies presented here bring a host of new, almost provocative ideas, suggesting that Zhang-zhung was a vast confederacy of states stretching all the way from western to north-eastern Tibet, and that its language was in fact no artificial product, tracing its Origins to the eastern Tibetan regions of Si-hia and Mi-nyag. With the help of Zhang-zhung, The Author even sheds new light on the meaning of the old Tibetan kings' names.Printed Pages: 181. 103624
