History of Buddhism (in 2 Part)
Aditya Prakashan; New Delhi, India; 2016; 817742145X; Hardcover; New; New; 
In 1908 Sarat Chandra Das published the Pag Sam Jon Zang by Sumpa-khampo. It has been hailed by Prof. G. Tucci: 'It was composed with a wise and discriminating choice of older sources. Its purpose is to be a summa of Tibetan historical traditions, in which chronicles and myths, saints' lives and cosmogonic legends, political changes and religious doctrines (lugs gnis) meet'. The importance of the work lies in passages quoted from the works of several predecessors, as he had access to a large amount of documents now lost.;The first part is a history of Buddhism in India beginning with the life of the Buddha, the rise of various schools of Buddhism, the lives of great philosophers and masters, the destruction of Nalanda and other monasteries, siddhas, evolution of grammar, metaphysics, medicine, and poetry. Detailed list of contents provides ready access to any topic. The Index at the end gives a summary of the life of every person, place, monastery, and serves the purpose of an English translation of the Tibetan text.;The second part is the history of Buddhism in Tibet. The analytical list of contents in 26 pages is a resume of every item discussed in the Tibetan text. It is a veritable translation of the Tibetan text. Prof. Lokesh Chandra has added a detailed index of 33 pages so that every detail can be located at a glance.;For the last hundred years it has been a vade-mecumfor the study of the rise and development of Buddhism both in India and in Tibet. It has been out of print for decades. This reprint with a continuous pagination for ready reference and a newly prepared detailed index at the end of part II is a rich sourcebook for Buddhist studies in their multiple aspects, such as art and philosophy, sociology and history. Sumpa-khampo chronicles the flow of Buddhism throbbing with intense life, in new trends born in the pilgrimage to spiritual yearnings. Printed Pages: 659. 113532

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

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

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

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

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

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

31740 Sumit Ganguly & Rahul Mukerji
India Since 1980
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2011; 1107020271; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book considers the remarkable transformations that have taken place in India since 1980 a period that began with the assassination of the formidable Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. Her death and that of her son Rajiv seven years later marked the end of the Nehru-Gandhi era. Although the country remains one of the few democracies in the developing world many of the policies instigated by these earlier regimes have been swept away to make room for dramatic alterations in the political economic and social landscape. Sumit Ganguly and Rahul Mukherji two leading political scientists of South Asia chart these developments with particular reference to social and political mobilization the rise of the BJP and its challenge to Nehruvian secularism and the changes to foreign policy that in combination with its meteoric economic development have ensured India a significant place on the world stage.

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

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

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

Modern Times: India 1880s-1950s (Environment, Economy, Culture)
Orient BlackSwan/Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8178244705; First Edition; Softcover; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
Much has changed in the world of South Asian history-writing since Sumit Sarkar’s renowned classic, Modern India (1983). “The passage of thirty years having rendered that work thoroughly dated, the futility of any attempt to revise it became increasingly clear to me, especially as over this period my own historical perspectives took new and unexpected directions”, says the author. The present work is an entirely fresh view of the same period. Focusing on three huge areas — Economy, Environment, and Culture — Professor Sarkar offers his magisterial perspective on these.Scientific discourses, laws, forest administration, peasants and adivasis, irrigation, and conflicts over land-use are examined, as are agrarian relations, commercialization, indebtedness, and famine. Trade, finance, and industry are other major focus areas.Modern urban India is scrutinized via the literature on its big cities. Sociabilities, caste configurations, and public culture (theatre, cinema, and sports) are discussed, as are literature, dance, music, and painting. In conclusion, says Professor Sarkar, "I have within each chapter incorporated the relevant historiographical developments, changes, and debates. Separate bibliographical sections will I hope facilitate the work of teachers and students." Printed Pages: 478. 102267

31751 Sumit Sarkar & Tanika Sarkar
Women and Social Reform in Modern India, 2 Vols
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2011; 817824327X; Softcover; New; 
The subject of social reforms has routinely formed a part of Indian history texts. The word 'reforms' conjures up the names of a few great individuals: always Hindu, always upper-caste and educated, always from cities, and always--apart from one or two memorable exceptions--men. These are the icons around whom the story of social change is written. The editors of the present work argue the need to understand the history of social reforms from a much wider array of perspectives: for example, the connections between specific social abuses on the one hand, and, on the other, systems or traditions of gender practices across times, classes, castes, and regions. For instance, when we look at widow immolation or widow remarriage practices, we need to look also at the larger domain of gender relations which sanctified immolation or which outlawed widow remarriage. What arguments were used? What aspects of these practices did the reformers ignore? How did the orthodox practitioners defend such traditions? There are also, say Sumit and Tanika Sarkar, other curious omissions in the existing literature: 'Most reforms passed through the grid of state legislation. Yet, there is little engagement even with the law-making machinery ... and far less with the judicial courts that enforced the laws and dealt with disputes around the new laws.' Such omissions are addressed, and many interesting questions raised and discussed, in this impressive collection of writings.Printed Pages: 870. 101882

Conflict is an inevitable part of life, according to this ancient Chinese classic of strategy, but everything necessary to deal with conflict wisely, honorably, victoriously, is already present within us. Compiled more than two thousand years ago by a mysterious warrior-philosopher, The Art of War is still perhaps the most prestigious and influential book of strategy in the world, as eagerly studied in Asia by modern politicians and executives as it has been by military leaders since ancient times. As a study of the anatomy of organizations in conflict, The Art of War applies to competition and conflict in general, on every level from the interpersonal to the international. Its aim is invincibility, victory without battle, and unassailable strength through understanding the physics, politics, and psychology of conflict. Printed Pages: 240. 112889

Foreword. Preface. 1. Introduction. 2. The Vedanta philosophy in the Mahabharata. 3. The Samkhya philosophy in the Mahabharata. 4. The Yoga philosophy as reflected in the Mahabharata. 5. Miscellaneous. 6. Conclusion. Bibliography. Index.The Mahabharata is a rich mine of philosophical speculations and the source of many inchoate systems of philosophy. As an encyclopaedia of Indian culture, it has accommodated the important thought ferments of that period. If philosophy is reflection upon varieties of human experience, or rational, methodological and systematic consideration of these topics which are of great concern to man, the great epic, the Mahabharata is really a book of philosophy. Its vast canvas encompass all aspects of human life in the early age of Indian culture which were later on crystallized into various Darsanas of Indian philosophy. They were mainly six and practically incorporated the Indian thinking of those days. The Mahabhrata has given respectable place to almost all of them and consequently has become encyclopaedic in nature. Mrs. Joshi has taken an excellent survey of all those thoughts in her book entitled The Trends of Philosophical Thought in the Mahabharata. Printed Pages: 354. 110676

Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts/MLBD; New Delhi, India; 2009; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Sarasvatika??habhara?am is a work on poetics (Bhoja has another work on grammar under the same name). This encyclopaedic compilation is a record of the wide range of human experience and knowledge that interested Bhoja. It discusses the usual topics of poetics in an unusual manner- do?a, gu?a, do?agu?a, ala?kara, rasa, d?sya and sravya kavya. There are many earlier editions of this work, some with even two commentaries. But this alone has an English translation. The text has been exhaustively and incisively edited, without obscuring Bhoja's thought and intent.Poetry cannot be fitted into rigid classes either of matter or of manner. Rightfully is Bhoja unfettered by the terms and definitions, armed with which writers try to study "great poetry". Bhoja has a practical approach and does not involve in the speculation on the soul of poetry. He holds rasa to be the crux of poetry. S??gara is the foremost which can gather into itself all the other rasas. Bhoja uses Abhimana and aha?ara as synonymous with rasa. It is, hence, inferred that the identification with the action and with the chief character, on the part of the reader, brings about this delight. The self-transcending state of aesthetic delight, spoken of by Abhinavagupta may be a more advanced stage of this joy.Printed Pages: 466. 101618

31784 Sunetra Choudhury
Behind Bars: Prison Tales of India's Most Famous
Kaveri Book Service; New Delhi, India; 9789351941316; Softcover; New; 
‘If you steal 1,000 rupees, the hawaldar will beat the shit out of you and lock you up in a dungeon with no bulb or ventilation. If you steal 55,000 crores then you get to stay in a 40-foot cell which has four split units, internet, fax, mobile phones and a staff of 10 to clean your shoes and cook your food (in case it is not being delivered from Hyatt that particular day).’They say that prison can be a great leveler – but does this apply if you are a VIP inmate in an Indian prison? Maybe not.Based on extensive first-hand interviews with some of India’s most well-known inmates, award-winning journalist Sunetra Choudhury gives you a peek into the VIP prison life. It includes some interesting anecdotes about the lives of the rich and powerful prisoners: What does Peter Mukherjea do all day in his 4 x 4 cell in Arthur Road Jail? How does a 70-year-old Doon school alumnus who has spent more than 7 years in jail find a will to continue petitioning the state and fight his cases? Who came to visit Amar Singh during those 4 fateful days and why this scarred him and his wife for life, determining his future friends and allies? Apart from certain depictions in popular culture or the occasional news reports, there is little information about how rules are bent and law takes a backseat when it comes to people like Sanjeev Nanda, Vikas and Vishal Yadav, Anca Varma and Manu Sharma, who were given special benefits and often sent out on parole and furlough for their good behaviour.For the first time, India’s most famous prisoners share their own stories – from terror tales of ‘bladebaaz’ to torture chambers, from air conditioners in cells to food from five-star hotels, from cushy beds to private parties – and how they negotiate life in prison or the so-called ‘jail-ashram’.With unbelievable details of the life inside prison and the sorry state of hundreds of undertrials languishing in jails, this book questions the primary purpose of imprisonment – is it actually reform, punishment or just misusing the system we are a part of?

31789 Sung Min Kim
Voice of the Void: Aesthetics of the Buddhist Mandala on the Basis of the Doctrine of Vak in Trika Saivism
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8124607567; First Edition; Hardcover; New; Nerw; 15 x 23 Cm 
The research undertaken here about Buddhist mandalas is basically designed under the philosophical question how the visible dimensions of forms are related to their invisible contents. The textual sources in reference to Buddhist mandalas teach that the essence of mandalas is shunya (void) and their forms are the reflective images (pratibimba) of shunya. This volume investigates how the colourful form of Buddhist mandalas represents the prime concept of shunya, and what makes these mandalas visually powerful, leaving the impression of "spiritual enhancement" in the heart of people who do not even know about the Buddhist doctrines. The mandalas permanently represented in the monastic complexes of Tabo and Alchi in the Western Himalayas have been focused in order to examine a prominent role of visual dimensions of mandalas. In order to comprehend mandalas in the context of Buddhist philosophy, the texts of the Yoga-Tantra class have been looked up. Especially, the references to the tantric visualization-practice throw light on the internal experiences with mandalas. Considering the fact that the Buddhist mandalas have been developed as a method of Mantrayana, being always combined with mantras and mudras, this volume presents the concept of vak (word, subtle sound, voice) as a key to explain how the ultimate state of shunya and perceptible forms of mandalas are related to each other. The doctrine of vak developed in the tradition of Trika Shaivism in Kashmir provides us with a systematic way to explain the non-dualism between all phenomenal objects and the Supreme Divine. The doctrine of four levels of vak is examined in the book for the purpose of interpreting the aesthetic phenomena and structuring the different levels of meanings of mandalas from the aesthetic perspective. On the basis of the vak theory, the external forms of mandalas have been explored and their visual principles have been technically analysed, in attempt to answer the question: how do the colourful forms of Buddhist mandalas resemble the formless shunya?

American Karma: Race, Culture, and Identity in the Indian Diaspora
New York Universiry Press; New York ,USA; 2007; 0814799590; First Edition; Paperback; New; 23 Cms x 15 Cms 
The Indian American community is one of the fastest growing immigrant communities in the U.S. Unlike previous generations, they are marked by a high degree of training as medical doctors, engineers, scientists, and university professors. American Karma draws on participant observation and in-depth interviews to explore how these highly skilled professionals have been inserted into the racial dynamics of American society and transformed into “people of color.” Focusing on first-generation, middle-class Indians in American suburbia, it also sheds light on how these transnational immigrants themselves come to understand and negotiate their identities. Bhatia forcefully contends that to fully understand migrant identity and cultural formation it is essential that psychologists and others think of selfhood as firmly intertwined with sociocultural factors such as colonialism, gender, language, immigration, and race-based immigration laws. American Karma offers a new framework for thinking about the construction of selfhood and identity in the context of immigration. This innovative approach advances the field of psychology by incorporating critical issues related to the concept of culture, including race, power, and conflict, and will also provide key insights to those in anthropology, sociology, human development, and migrant studies.

31793 Sunil Gangopadhyay; Translated By Enakshi Chatterjee
Pratidwandi
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8125019022; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Pratidwandi, meaning 'adversary', is the English translation of the Bengali original by Sunil Gangopadhyay. The story is about a family living in Calcutta during the 1960s-- the mother, two sons, the daughter, and an uncle, who moves in at the death of the father. Having lost their tea estates, they are undergoing a severe financial crisis. Siddhartha, the central character, was able to complete his graduation, because his sister ,Sutapa, was persuaded to take up a job but at the cost of her own education. Siddhartha wishes to become a doctor, but there is not enough money to fund his studies at medical college. Attempts at getting a job prove futile and his sense of frustration and obligation deepen. The apparent immutability of the situation leads to constant bickering and fights in the family. Sutapa, forced into the role of selfless breadwinner, is fed up and in trying to find an escape route brings dishonour to the family-- the final blow to their dignity. The bleakness of the narrative is relieved by a streak of romanticism and an idealistic vision of a world once inhabited by Siddhartha. Satyajit Ray made this story into a film, drawn by the compelling characterisation of Siddhartha. Printed Pages: 112. 031645

Living on the Adge: In Jhande Walan Thompson
Lotus/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8174367446; Softcover; New; 
Living on the 'Adge'in Jhande Walan Thompson is a Bill-Bryson-esque tale of Sunil Gupta's twenty-three-year-long expedition Through the Looking Glass in the madcap wonderland of Indian advertising. A delightful and quirky narrative with a wonderful cast of characters and companies (a virtual who's who of advertising and marketing), inimitable descriptions and hilarious episodes, it presents a valuable and irreverent history of the growth and development of an increasingly important and yet largely unknown sector of the industry. Sunil's gift of observation and portraiture and his original use of language and metaphor are truly remarkable. Dig in and discover how Sunil likes his coffee without any sweetener. You won't find any aspartame in his writing either. And you'll find a lot to laugh about, admire and ponder over along the way. Printed Pages: 465. 108543

Journal of Indian Ocean Archaeology
Indian Archaeology Society/D.K. Printworld; New Delhi, India; 8124608598; Softcover; New; 
Journal of Indian Ocean Archaeology was launched in 2003 by one of India’s leading academic institutions, the Centre for Research & Training in History, Archaeology and Palaeo-environment, New Delhi. The second issue is in the Press. The Journal is an outcome of the realization on the part of the international community of archaeologists and historians that India has no journal devoted exclusively to the archaeology of the Indian Ocean Rim countries, starting from the Red Sea through the South China Sea, although Indian occupies the central position in this vast area, with three-fourths of its land facing the gulfs and bays of the Indian Ocean. It is common knowledge that Egypt, Ethiopis, Kenya, Arabia, Yemen, Oman, Bahrain and countries bordering the Persian Gulf, including Iraq and Iran, as well as Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, China, were closely connected with each other through long-distance sea-borne trade-routes for thousands of years. This particular phenomenon had led to the development of what is now generally called ‘Shared Culture’ with its distinct personality which is Afro-Asian. It is reflected in the material items dug up every year at a number of sites in India and all other countries along the coasts of the Indian Ocean. This journal embodies the results of explorations and excavations conducted by scholars in various countries which witnessed the growth of the personality of the shared culture of the Indian Ocean Rim countries, including the countries of Southwest Asia. It also includes all aspects of cultural, economic and socio-political histories of these countries. The contributors to this journal are from all over the world. It is a MUST for every scholar and layman interested in the history and arachaeology of the coastal countries of the Indian Ocean, from Africa, and West Asia through China.
