31601 Victoria Z. Rivers
The Shining Cloth: Dress and Adornment That Glitters
Thames & Hudson; London, UK; 1999; 0500283745; First Edition; Paperback; New; New; 25 Cms x 32 Cms 
Combining an artist’s eye with an in-depth knowledge of textile techniques, Victoria Rivers draws on an extraordinary array of international research and anthropological studies to examine the lustrous qualities of silk and the special treatments that give fabrics shimmering qualities. She explores the use of gold, silver, metals, sequins, beads and mirrors for decoration, as well as showing how other gifts of nature – shells, seeds, feathers and beetle wings – are cleverly manipulated to simulate more precious materials. This marvellously illustrated, superbly designed and highly original odyssey through the world’s cultures is essential reading for anyone concerned with the history of textiles and contemporary fashion, as well as all those interested in the symbolism and rituals of traditional societies.

Slaves of the Lord: The Path of the Tamil Saints
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2002; 8121500443; Second Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 19 Cms x 25 Cms 
In the Tamil country of south India, during the last millennium, a powerful cult of saints has been in existence. These saints referred to themselves as adiyar or tondar, both words meaning "slaves"-of the Lord. Although the south Indian saints are lesser known than those of northern India, or of Europe, they are in a manner more significant. For the sacred canon of south India, both the Saivites and Vaishnavas, consists of the poems composed by these saints. Their hymns are chanted daily in the southern temples, and often sung in homes and at festivals. In the field of art too, the saints of south India occupy a unique position. Images of the complete group of saints, sixty-three Nayanmars in the case of Siva and twelve Alvars in the case of Vishnu, are to be seen in every temple in the Tamil country. Placed beside the shrine of the god, the saints are anointed, clothed and worshipped, being an integral part of temple rituals. To view the art forms in their totality and to appreciate the saints and the status accorded to them in the Tamil country, the author introduces their biographical details, the milieu in which they functioned, and includes selected translation of their poems. A complete picture emerges when the strands of poetry and religious history are brought in to highlight a study of the art. This is not simply a book about images of the saints, but one that will appeal to students of religion and literature. This original and exciting book is of relevance for the history of ideas.

Discourse in Early Buddhist Art: Visual Narratives of India
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2005; 8121507367; Second Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 23 Cms x 29 Cms 
Story-telling is an ever popular activity that occurs across space and time. Which child has not sat enthralled by the magic of story-tellers, and which adult has not succumbed to the seduction of reenactments of great legends? India's ancient Buddhist capitalized on the lure of stories, portraying them visually in stone reliefs and painted murals, to introduce viewers to the Buddhist faith and to confirm them in their belief. Commencing in the first century BC, Buddhist monasteries across the Indian subcontinent were extensively decorated with visual narratives of varying sizes, from a mere twelve inch panel to an extensive fifty foot wall. This book is a pioneering exploration of the manner in which stories are told. It identifies seven modes of visual story-telling used by the artist in early India, considers the reason for one mode being chosen over another, and explores how the effect of a story on the viewer varied according to the manner chosen to portray it. The book is a contribution to the expanding sphere of art historical investigation and also to the field of Buddhist studies.

India Through the Lens: Photography 1840-1911
Mapin Publishing; Ahmedabad, India; 2001; 1890206245; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 11" x 9.5" 
At the turn of the millennium, photography is ubiquitous and unquestioned. A century-and-a half ago however, notes curator and scholar Vidya Dehejia, "the simple ability to produce a photograph was in itself a marvel. . . .The early decades of the nineteenth century witnessed the pursuit of a dream, an obsession with cajoling nature into a miraculous reflection upon a surface where it could be captured and retained for all time." India was at the vanguard of the explosion of photography; both Indian and foreigner (mainly British) strove to document and reveal the Indian landscape, people, and architecture. The essays in this book reveal the history and importance of photography in India, from the appeal of the panorama to the documentation of people, places, and princes-and to the outstanding Indian photographer, Lala Deen Dayal, who was unique in being esteemed by both the world of the British and the world of princely India. This book appeals to specialists and nonspecialists alike all those who love early photography or British India are bound to enjoy India through the Lens. Vidya Dehejia, curator of the exhibition, editor of and contributor to the book, is deputy director and chief curator of the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery and the Freer Gallery of Art. Contributors: Charles Allen, an author and broadcaster best known for his social histories of the British colonial era; John Falconer, curator of photographs, Oriental and India Office Collections, British Library; Michael Gray, curator at the National Trust, Fox Talbot Museum, Lacock, England, and scientific director of Ikons Centre Imaging Project, University of Pordenone, Italy; David Harris, independent curator and photographic historian specializing in nineteenth-century and contemporary architectural and landscape photography; Jane Ricketts, independent scholar and collector who has concentrated on the work of British photographers in India in the nineteenth century; and Gary Sampson, associate professor of art history at the Cleveland Institute of Art.

The Unfinished: Stone Carvers at Work on the Indian Subcontinent
Lustre Press/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 2016; 9789351941149; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 27 x 29 Cm 
The number of unfinished stone monuments in India is staggering… more than half of the 1100 rock-cut monuments are at various stages of unfinish – from famous sites like Ellora, Ajanta, and Mamallapuram, to temple structures like Hoysala temples. Celebrated for the intricacy of their sculpted decoration, the unfinished monuments are usually overlooked, their language never interpreted. The Unfinished: Stone Carvers at work on the Indian Subcontinent explores reasons for such unfinish, sharing valuable insights into the process and raising fundamental issues about the nature of the stone being cut, the tools in use, the makeup of the teams of workers required to work on stone monuments, the sequence of the actual carving process, and the importance of the rhythm of construction. Meticulously researched, this richly illustrated book focuses on specific issues of consequence in the context of unfinished work, as they gain an added weight and significance through discovery of their repetitive occurrence at site after site.

Nutritional status of middle aged urban women in Jaipur/Kanika Varma and Aachu Agarwal. 15. Twilight years/Shubha Dube and Pooja Sharma. In patriarchal societies, all over the world, women experience subordination on a daily basis regardless of the class to which they belong. Women have been treated as the ‘other’ who required subordination, control and differential treatment. Whether it is economic security, food security, health security, personal or political security, women and young girls are affected in very specific ways due to their physical, emotional and material differences and also due to the important social, economic and political inequalities existing between women and men. Despite constitutional provisions and affirmative action by the government to bring in gender equality we find that women still face a lot of challenges. The recent spate of violence and rapes provoking widespread public outrage and unprecedented protests has led to a serious debate over the strategies and approaches that need to be evolved to counteract threats towards the safety of women. The book attempts to analyse and understand the myriad issues concerning women in contemporary society. Some of the articles offer media and literary reflections on gender issues. The book will be useful for scholars interested in gender and media studies. 111095

Perception of the Vedas
Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts/Manohar Publishers & Distributors; New Delhi, India; 2000; 8173042543; Hardcover; New; New; 
In 1933, Coomaraswamy published A New Approach to the Vedas, and thereafter he regularly brought out longer and shorter studies of the Vedas and Upani ads till the year 1947. These works were published in a variety of American, European and Indian journals. These essays have been arranged here in this volume in relation to some aspects or the other of Vedic text as one integrated perception. The author has tried to make accurate, evocative translations of Vedic and Upani adic texts through the use of scholastic language and archaic or composite words. These translations are followed by copious notes covering related passages from other texts and translations in order to bring out a fuller meaning of the process of emanation of manifest from the unmanifest It is hoped that this volume will open up a new vista of interpreting the Vedic lore so that we can reintegrate our own fuller being with the fuller manifestations of the cosmic order in which resides the truth of truths.Printed Pages: 449. 101625

Puranas, History and Itihasas (History of Science, Philosophy and Culture in Indian Civilization, Volume I, Part 6)
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8187586656; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 23 x 29 Cm 
The volumes of the PROJECT ON THE HISTORY OF SCIENCE, PHILOSOPHY AND CULTURE IN INDIAN CIVILIZATION aim at discovering the main aspects of India's heritage and present them in an interrelated way. These volumes, in spite of their unitary look, recognize the difference between the areas of material civilization and those of ideational culture. The Project is not being executed by a single group of thinkers who are methodologically uniform or ideologically identical in their commitments. In fact, contributions are made by different scholars with different ideological persuasions and methodological approaches. The Project is marked by what may be called "methodological pluralism". In spite of its primarily historical character, this Project, both in its conceptualization and execution, has been shaped by scholars drawn from different disciplines. It is for the first time that an endeavour of such a unique and comprehensive character has been undertaken to study critically a major world civilization like India. In this volume devoted to the Puranas, History and Itihasas, scholars have contributed articles on central ideas of ancient texts and also on Historiography or method of writing history. D.P. Chattopadhyaya in his work entitled Ways of Understanding the Human Past has shown that there cannot be one method of historical enquiry and writing. One of the editors of this volume, N.S.S. Raman, has in his Introduction and in other articles, attempted to show that in the Indian historical and cultural tradition, pluralist methodology is not only avoidable but is necessary. Contributors have tried to highlight those topics that come under the five characteristics as stated by the Puranas, namely the creation of the universe, the various eras of human history, histories of the dynasties of the various kings and events that have occurred during their reigns, and of the gods and sages, The two major itihasas in Indian literature, the Mahabharata and the Ramayana, have also been studies intensely in this volume. A section is devoted exclusively to historiography of ancient Indian history. The section includes various religious histories like those of Saivism and Buddhism, and sources of historical writings other than archaeology and epigraphy, like biographies and travel diaries.

Absolutism East and West
New Bharatiya Book Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2002; 8187418567; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Since the dawn of philosophy the concept of the Absolute under different guises has occupied a place of supreme importance and unique significance. It has been a pivotal concept both in the Eastern as well as Western philosophy. The present study takes up for a detailed and comprehensive study of two philosophy. Viz., Sri Aurobindo and Hegel who are the representatives and exponents of the Eastern and the Western traditions respectively. Whereas Sri Aurobindo assigns credence to the supra-rational principle, Hegel lays accent on the rational principle and regards it as the ultimate. Sri Aurobindo's philosophic thought constitutes a fruition of vedic and Upanishadic principles. Sri Aurobindo has provided a fresh approach to, and has thrown a new light on the ancient texts. He does not find any vedantic approach given prior to him as philosophically satisfying. He has therefore attempted to set forth an integral approach to the problem of the absolute.Printed Pages: 357. 104022

The Splintered Mind: Understanding Schizophrenia
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0143031287; First Edition; Paperback; New; New; 13 Cms x 20 Cms 
Schizophrenia is a term we tend to use casually to refer to anything from unpredictable behaviour to two-facedness. But what precisely is it? A split personality? Mental retardation? A personality disorder? Divine retribution for a misspent youth? It is none of these, says eminent psychiatrist Dr Vijay Nagaswami, as he proceeds in The Splintered Mind: Understanding Schizophrenia to dispel these and other myths about the mental illness that many people in India know little about. This book, written to commemorate the twentieth anniversary of the Schizophrenia Research Foundation (India), attempts to fill this gap. It examines a variety of facets of schizophrenia and explores its causes, its clinical manifestations, its medical treatment and what are called psychosocial interventions—cognitive and social skills training, family care, vocational rehabilitation, creative therapies and other psychotherapies. The work of the non-governmental sector in the field of psychosocial interventions is also highlighted. Printed Pages: 240. 013571

To D or Not To D?: Working Towards An Amicable Divorce
Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789384030704; Softcover; New; 
Is an amicable divorce an oxymoron? Caught between tradition and modernity, most Indians have mixed feelings about divorce. Is it the Indian thing to do? Is it fair to the children? Can married people seeking separation for life learn to accept their changed feelings for each other with equanimity? Divorce is never the easy option in the face of marital toxicity. And yet, sometimes it’s necessary one, even if as a last resort. To help couples navigate the minefields in the divorce terrain. To D or not to D explores the phenomenon in depth and looks at some things men and woman may never have thought about-but which they probably should have before taking such a life-changing decision. As always, Dr. Vijay Nagaswami, best-selling author of the New Indian marriage series, takes the reader down roads that need to be traveled with a light tread, pointing out along the way what one needs to keep in mind before taking a decision and that if indeed the decision to D has to be taken, an amicable divorce is neither a mirage nor an oxymoron. 109696

Puranas and Acculturation: A Historico-Anthropological Perspective
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2001; 8121509955; First Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
This gigantic Puranic corpus stands apart from earlier Brahmanical literature in many ways. Not the least of which is the fact that whereas the Vedas, and the Dharamasastras were for self-study and meant for the exclusive religious edification of the upper stratum, the Puranas were to be recited in popular gathering and generally projected as the scriptures of the masses. Inspite of the fact that so much has been written about the Puranas, no convicting rationale has been offered for their composition and proliferation. This work aims at removing this lacuna and establishing the purposive nature of the Puranas. Printed Pages:275. 000502

Net-Centric Warfare
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8187966645; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Network-Centric Warfare (NCW) originated in the United States wherein a concept of a “system of systems” was first published by the Institute of National Security Studies in 1996. This “system of systems” comprises a network of intelligent sensors, command and control systems and precision weapons that enhances situational awareness, rapid target assessment, and distributed weapon assignment to enable quick decision-making and rapid response. The application of information technology has largely contributed to what is called the Revolution in Military Affairs. Technology has been the driver of change in the art of war. NCW is an offshoot of far-reaching developments that have taken place in the field of information technology.The Indian Army, Navy and Air Force have made considerable strides towards improving command, control, communication, computers, intelligence information, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4I2SR), without which no modern war-fighting machine can conduct operations effectively. Networks will form the heart of future wars. However, achieving network-centricity should not be seen as the aim of warfare but used only as an enabling mechanism towards achieving a quick and decisive victory over the adversary.The Centre for Land Warfare Studies (CLAWS), the National Maritime Foundation (NMF) and the Centre for Air Power Studies (CAPS) had organised a joint seminar entitled “Net-Centric Warfare in the Regional Context”. This book is the product of the papers presented at the seminar and the discussions that followed. The seminar and this publication would not have been possible without the sterling support of two of our sister think-tanks viz. NMF and CAPS.Printed Pages: 220. 104442

KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2007; 8187966637; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Indian Army aviation became an independent corps of the Army in 1986. Today, Army Aviation has the largest number of helicopters amongst the three services. Yet, the expansion of this vital corps has been slow, mainly on account of opposition from the Indian Air force (IAF). In the tactical arena, army formations and units require intimate support from the air. This can be best provided by Army Aviation. Unfortunately, on account of “turf” considerations, the logical growth of Army Aviation has been hamstrung. The result is missed opportunities in battle.Army Aviation has braved the neglect of years and has performed creditably with its meagre resources in multi-terrain and operational conditions, bet needs to rapidly modernise. This volume is aimed on various aspects of Army Aviation so that this important component of the army becomes a force multiplier par excellence and be an important battle winning factor in future wars and conflicts.Printed Pages: 196. 104450

Management Development in Non-Profit Organizations: A Programme for Giverning Boards
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0761933778; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Voluntary organizations engaged in development efforts are usually immersed in very demanding work in unhelpful conditions. This leaves them little time to come to grips with the specialized demands fof management development. Adding to the difficulty is the prevailing tendency in many non-profits and NGOs to distance themselves from the world of `management`. However, the need for effective management in their work is often greater than in commercial ventures of a similar size. In this context, the governing board can play an important role in the effective management of voluntary organizations, but it is a role that is largely neglected. This book—the first of its kind in India—draws upon the authors` broad experience in consulting to identify the needs of governing boards, and offers a programme designed to meet those needs. This book is a practical, comprehensive and ready reference manual for board members of non-profit organizations (NPOs), covering all the issues involved—from the legal frameworks governing NPOs to useful guidelines on fundraising. Using the `frequently asked questions` format, it covers various aspects of NPO management, with an emphasis on the strategy—policy function of boards. Printed Pages: 280. 028860

Cultural Contours of India
Abhinav Publications/Kaveri Books; New Delhi, India; 8170171490; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
"Romantic and history-laden Rajasthan has always held a world of fascination and played a pivotal role in making the cultural contours of India. It is the land, which is not only an archaeologist’s paradise but is also the richest in art traditions. Behind the clang of sword and the beat of war-drums were always heard in Rajasthan the thunks of sculptor’s chisel, the rustling of a painter’s brush, the soothing and ennobling notes of music and the jingling of the dancer’s anklets. Dr. Satya Prakash is one of the distinguished exponents of Rajasthan’s art and culture, archaeology and history, who made the treasures of this wonderland more widely known to the world. To discover them was his passion so also their preservation and interpretation. He devoted his entire life in reading sermons in stones from Rajasthan and liberally interpreted them through his writings. 108047
