Asian Security: The Great Debate
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1987; 8121200776; Hardcover; New; New; 
Mankind is waging a struggle for survival. It is precisely in these terms that one shall interpret the Attar Chandextension by the Soviet Union of the unilateral moratorium and the fresh Peace initiatives put foreword by the Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev. The fresh Soviet initiatives concerning the vast Asian Pacific Region are an important part of the concept of a comprehensive international security system, which was put forward by the Soviet Union earlier. It is necessary to resolve a number of vital problems for peaceful cooperation of states, for military, and consequently for Political détente in the Asian-Pacific region. The Soviet Union proposes that a Search be conducted for the Settlement of regional problems, and a reliable barrier by put up in the way of proliferation and build-up of Nuclear weapons there, that talks be started on a Reduction of the activity of the navies (in the first place of ships equipped with nuclear munitions), that the discussion of confidence building Measures and non-use of force be placed on a practical footing. To improve the situation in the region, it is necessary in the first place to ensure a cut in the nuclear potentials of the states situated in it, resolve the problem of local conflicts. A great role in that could be played by outlining new forms of economic cooperation and the Adoption of a code sealing the principles of conduct of the Countries belonging to it, so as to ensure their security.Printed Pages: 306. 105663

3203 Attar Chand
Poverty and Under Development: New Challenge; A Global Survey
Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1987; 8121201489; Hardcover; New; New; 
Poverty and underdevelopment is of utmost Importance as far the subject is concerned. In the past few years, there have been tremendous discussions on the mass poverty and underdevelopment problems and what should be done about them. Poverty and underdevelopment have most crucial problems, not only for some but for all nations. We in India believe that our poverty, the abysmal poverty of Asia, is a Product of the 19th century colonialization. A huge amount of resources went out of this part of Asia in the last century and helped to Finance the Industrial Revolution in the North World. Asia thus exported Wealth to West European Nations in the last century, and imported poverty in turn. Poverty is not only always with us but everywhere with us. It is an inter-related condition of deprivation. Eradication of poverty can ultimately be achieved by economic development and more equal distribution of income. However, there is no other method of relieving poverty immediately except by a net transfer of Income from the rich Classes to the poorer people. We must remember that our most precious resources are our human resources. The author has proposed a new GNP. Instead of Gross National Product, with its materialistic implications, author suggests that we all establish as our goal the development of a new GNP-that is each government should try to make its Country a Genuine Nesting-place of Prosperity.Printed Pages: 526. 105676

3214 Atul Gawande
Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End
Penguin Books India Pvt. Ltd.; Delhi, India; 2014; 0670086061; Hardcover; New; New; 
Doctors are trained to keep their patients alive as long as possible. But they are never taught how to prepare people to die. And yet for many patients, particularly the old and terminally ill, death is a question of when, not if. Should the medical profession rethink its approach to them? And in what way? With aging populations and hospital costs rising globally, these questions have become increasingly relevant. In his new book, Atul Gawande argues that an acceptance of mortality must lie at the center of the way we treat the dying. Using his experiences (and missteps) as a surgeon, comparing attitudes towards aging and death in the West and in India and drawing a powerful portrait of his father’s final years-a doctor who chose how he should go – Gawande has produced a work that is not only an extraordinary account of loss but one whose ideas are truly important. Questioning, profound and deeply moving, Being Mortal is a masterpiece.Printed Pages: 288. 103392

India Now and in Transition
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2017; 9789385285639; Hardcover; New; New; 17 x 25 Cm 
India is the world’s largest democracy with nearly 70 years of independent existence. Its unique and ever-changing nature has sparked a great degree of academic debate, both before and since Independence. The beauty of India is that there are many kinds of Indias. Understanding the fundamentals that have given birth to such multiplicity across various segments is especially imperative in the present day, when the ‘Idea of India’ is keenly contested. Our nation has the world’s largest youth population and is undergoing tectonic social and political changes at present; therefore, understanding what directions India may take in the future is essential for every thinking individuaIndia Now and in Transition is an enquiry into possible futures, based on current happenings. Featuring contributions from leading thinkers and scholars in diverse fields, each essay in this volume critically analyses a major theme of India’s present, to propose the likely way ahead for our emergent nation. Covering the fields of politics and governance, economics and development, security and foreign policy, society and culture, and language and literature, the book shows that—while beset with both internal and external challenges on many fronts—India isn’t waiting for its moment, it’s making its moment happen.

3218 Atul Kohli (ed.)
The Success of India's Democracy
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 8175961074; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
How has democracy taken root in India in the face of a low-income economy, widespread poverty, illiteracy, and immense ethnic diversity? Atul Kohli brings together some of the worlds leading scholars of Indian politics to consider this intriguing anomaly. They do so by focusing not so much on socioeconomic factors, but rather on the ways in which power is distributed in India. Two processes have guided the negotiation of power conflicts. First, a delicate balance has been struck between the forces of centralization and decentralization and, second, the interests of the powerful in society have been served without fully excluding those on the margins. These and related themes are addressed by the editor in his introduction, which is followed by an essay on the historical origins of Indian democracy, and two further sections, one on the consolidation of democratic institutions, and the other on the forces which motivate or inhibit democratic growth. While the book offers a clear and coherent approach to the subject, individual authors have their particular take on the subject. It is this combination that will entice a wide variety of readers, from students on the one hand, as a guide to one of the worlds largest democracies, to scholars on the other, who are looking for a new approach to this controversial and much-debated subject.

India Since 1947: Looking Back at a Modern Nation
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 9789381523926; Softcover; New; 
Writing contemporary history can be an adventure, especially in a country as diverse as India, where much happens but little is documented due to the lack of a culture of documentation. This anthology is an attempt at looking at India’s history through the eyes of an Indian – through the writings of eminent scholars and budding talent – and offering a perspective and viewpoint that is unbiased, analytical and introspective but basically Indian as opposed to a western viewpoint of India and Indian history.The thirty essays included in this volume penned by India’s leading scholars and insightful young writers, whose names feature on the cover, will establish interfaces in diverse domains and present an overview of modern India from the social history angle.Modern day India is very different from what it was in 1947, when it faced the challenges of existence. Now it struggles to develop, improve and clean up its systems in order to maximise its potential. Through first-hand accounts, this work attempts to describe how India handled the trauma of Partition and progressed further with radical changes in its socio-economic and political order. The topics dealt with cover a wide spectrum and include issues related to economic, political, socio-cultural, literary and artistic spheres. The essayists are looking back and taking stock of the progress the nation has made since independence, the reasons for the lack of it in some sectors and the advances by the nation in its march forward. A collection every discerning reader will love to own.Printed Pages: 358. 106533

Culture of Encounters: Sanskrit at the Mughal Court
Allen Lane/Penguin Books; New Delhi, India; 0670088943; Hardcover; New; New; 
Told by the authority on the subject, Culture of Encounters gives us insight into how and why the Mughals?one of the most powerful imperial powers?poured immense energy into drawing Sanskrit thinkers to their courts, adopted and adapted Sanskrit-based practices, translated dozens of Sanskrit texts into Persian, and composed Persian accounts of Indian philosophy. Beginning with the invitation of Brahman and Jain intellectuals to King Akbar's court, this incisive work details the numerous, Mughal-backed texts they produced under emperors Akbar, Jahangir, and Shah Jahan. These cross-cultural encounters created a dynamic idea of Mughal rule essential to the empire's survival. Many works, including Sanskrit epics and historical texts, were translated into Persian, elevating the political position of Brahmans and Jains and cultivating a voracious appetite for Indian writings throughout the Mughal world. The first book to read these Sanskrit and Persian works in tandem, Culture of Encounters recasts the Mughal Empire as a multi-lingual state that collaborated with its Indian subjects to establish its role as an Indian empire. Revisiting a forgotten part of India?s history, Audrey Truschke certifies the critical role of the sociology of empire in building the Mughal polity, which came to shape the literary and ruling cultures of early modern India forever.

3238 Aura Korppi-Tommola
Miina Sillanpää
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2016; 9522227242; New; 
Miina Sillanpää (1866-1952) oli Suomen ensimmäinen naispuolinen ministeri ja pitkäaikainen kansanedustaja. Miina Sillanpää –Edelläkävijä kertoo Sillanpään tarinan köyhästä torpan tytöstä suomalaisen politiikan tasa-arvon symboliksi. Sillanpää oli aikansa suuri kansalaisvaikuttaja, joka ajoi erityisesti yhteiskunnan vähäosaisten asiaa. Hänen aloittamansa työn jälki näkyy edelleen monilla yhteiskunnan alueilla, ja Sillanpään henkistä perintöä vaalitaan useissa hyvinvointialan järjestöissä. Kirja kertoo, kuinka muun muassa naisten oikeudet ja lastensuojelu ovat kehittyneet Sillanpään aikana ja sen jälkeen. Se valaisee myös ihmisoikeuksista käytävää kansainvälistä keskustelua, jonka äänenpainot ovat nykyään hämmästyttävän samanlaisia kuin edelläkävijä Miina Sillanpäällä yli sata vuotta sitten. Kirjan kirjoittaja, professori Aura Korppi-Tommola, on tunnettu lastensuojelun ja naishistorian tutkija. Printed Pages: 176. 115388

Valmiki Ramayana, the first kavya (poetic composition) and the first mahakavya (epic) of the world, is an inexhaustible fountain of culture and knowledge. It has impacted infinite minds and souls in India and abroad, and continues to inspire and engage creative and critical minds, and will remain so for the ages to come. Ramayana, along with standardizing Ramakatha, transcends history, geography and binaries of mode of thinking. Its appeal may be discerned from the fact that it exists in different versions in various regions and forms. Notwithstanding these versions, Valmiki Ramayana rules human heart and mind for its subject matter and manner of articulation. The multilayered worlds of Ramayana make it a seedbed of ideas existing at various levels. Traversing generations, and getting interpreted anew in consonance with cultural needs and existential questions, it has earned serious critical consideration of scholars from different perspectives - literary, aesthetic, ethical, comparative, interdisciplinary, religious, philosophical, moral, social, archaeological, and intermedial among many. Hence, it demands its reinterpretation by every generation. The present book is a testimony to it and a response in this direction. Consisting of scholarly papers by eminent intellectuals and with a perspicuous introduction, this book reconsiders Valmiki Ramayana from different perspectives, presented in a seminar on Ramayana that was organized with the blessings of Pujya Morari Bapu.

Bandicoots in the Moonlight
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0143103792; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
Teenage boy Anirban Roy grows up—not a lot wiser—in a small town in ’70s Bihar where his policeman father is posted to pick up intelligence on the looming Naxalite menace. Ganesh Nagar possesses neither village simplicity nor urban slick but observes a line of ethics that defies codification. It takes time for Anirban to learn to juggle adolescent angst and ping-pong hormones, loyal friends and part-time criminals, a bewildering succession of topsy-turvy lessons in life and lust, yet manage to keep the balls in the air. There are close encounters with animals, too: Experiments with reptiles; the sighting of bandicoots in full flight, their sleek coats gleaming in the moonlight; the hazards involved in stealing a parrot nestling; the part played by a domestic fowl in curing snakebite and predicting death; and the unusual role of donkeys in satiating adolescent lust. Rites of passage never got so down and dirty as in journalist Avijit Ghosh’s earthy account of boy-to-manhood in fictional Ganesh Nagar, an introverted district that could exist in India anytime, anywhere.

Communication Technology and Human Development: Recent Experiences in the Indian Social Sector
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2006; 0761934383; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The role communication can play in facilitating social change and furthering the goals of development programmes is now widely acknowledged. However, what is not so well appreciated is that the application of communication technologies in social development programmes is a complex task which requires a professional approach. Based on more than 30 years of the author`s personal experience, this book provides an understanding of the practical issues that arise in the planning and implementation of communication programmes to bring about behaviour change in the Indian context. The first section of the book provides a historical background to the evolving nature of the application of communication technology in development. Case studies of innovative applications of communication technology, both in India and abroad, are described to assist a holistic understanding of the evolution of the role of development communiation. In Section II, the author presents recent and major initiatives in the design and implementation of communication strategies in three important social sectors—literacy, population issues and rural development (including poverty alleviation). In the concluding chapter, Avik Ghosh draws attention to various critical issues and concerns in the context of India`s development. He argues that the importance of communication in facilitating social change and the need to involve local communities in such initiatives is not sufficiently appreciated by policy-makers.

Indian Classical Dance: Tradition in Transition
Lustre Press/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8174362169; Hardcover; New; New; 
A sweeping look at the magnificence of Indian culture through its varied dance forms, Indian Classical Dance: Tradition in Transition is a tour de force through the forms, characteristics, challenges and changes in traditional dance. At one level, it is a compendium of classical dance, an exploration of its moods and majesty, and an ode to its sublime aesthetics. At another level, it is a stunning visual and scholarly portrayal of a pluralistic society teeming with cultural vitality. It is also a graphic appreciation of the human body, captured by the camera in moments of sheer grace, structured movement, cultivated expression and divine harmony. Bharatanatyam, Kathakali, Odissi, Kathak, Mohiniattam, Manipuri, Kuchipudi: the book is an exposition of these seven major dance forms - their history, growth, decay and renewal, right from the temple floor and kingly court to the modern stage. The future of these dance forms, their struggle for preservation, and their need to keep in step with the rhythm of today's fast-paced world are themes the author, one of India's most respected dance critics, explores and tries to resolve. Brilliant photographs captured by the lens of Avinash Pasricha, undoubtedly the master of Indian dance photography, make the book as vibrant as the dances it presents. In its range, definitive appraised and visual power. Indian Classical Dance: Tradition in Transition is the best there is in its genre. Printed Pages: 144. 108615

Reorganising the Air Force for Future Operations
Vij Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 9789381411148; Hardcover; New; New; 
This is an era of exponential growth especially in technologies. Air Forces are the most technology intensive fighting arms. An ideal Air Force would constantly embrace and adopt new technologies to retain it's cutting edge and all dominant status in battle space. Failure to do so may spell it's doom when faced with more current Air Force. Along with new technology there is a need to reorganise many aspects in the organisation. These include, but are not limited to, command and control setup, inter-service integration, HR function, organisational culture and attitude etc etc. This study focuses on the reorganisation already due and suggests ideas for the future.Printed Pages: 152. 103274

Twentieth-Century Analytic Philosophy
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 8120841115; Softcover; New; 
Analytic philosophy is difficult to define it is not so much a specific doctrine as a loose concatenation of approaches to problems. As well as having strong ties to scientism - the notion that only the methods of the natural sciences give rise to knowledge it also has humanistic ties to the great thinkers and philosophical problems of the past. Moreover, no single feature characterizes the activities of analytic philosophers. Undaunted by these difficulties, Avrum Stroll investigates the "family resemblances" between that impressive breed of thinkers known as analytic philosophers. In so doing, he grapples with the point and purpose of doing philosophy: What is philosophy? What are its tasks? What kind of information, illumination, and understanding is it supposed to provide if it is not one of the natural sciences? Inbued with clarity, liveliness, and philosophical sophistication, Stroll`s book presents a synoptic picture of the maindevelopments in logic, philosophy of language, epistemology, and metaphysics in the past century. It does this by concentrating on the individual thinkers whose ideas have been most influential. Major themes in Twentieth-Century Analytic Philosophy include: * the innovation of mathematical logic by Gottlob Frege at the close of the nineteenth century and its independent development by Bertrand Russell; * the impact of advancements in science on the world of philosophy and its importance for understanding such doctrines as logical positivism, philosophy of language, philosophy of mind, and eliminative materialism; * the refusal by such thinkers as Wittgenstein, Moore, and Austin to treat logic as an ideal language superior to natural languages; and * a conjecture about which, if any, of the philosophers discussed in the book will enter the pantheon of philosophical gods. Along the way, Stroll also examines the theories of Rudolf Carnap, W.V.O. Quine, Gilbert Ryle, J. L. Austin, Hilary Putnam, Saul Kripke, John Searle, Ruth Marcus, Patricia and Paul Churchland.

The Secret Red Book of Leadership
Wisdom Tree; New Delhi, India; 8183283861; Softcover; New; 
The hidden truths of leadership—bitter or sweet—revealed like never before! Great leaders are like icebergs. They conceal more than they reveal. Indeed, mystery, and the art of retaining it, is integral to leadership. Leadership, then, is more an art than a science. It is not a reality that you can touch, feel and measure, but an illusion that is created by many tricks, which you should be able to learn and practise in a way that others are not able to grasp. This book, written by a serving officer of government, is an eye-opener for anybody who aspires to be a leader, at whatever level—nation, community or a small social group; and in whatever sphere—business, politics or administration.

Practising Spiritual Intelligence: For Innovetion, Leadership and Happiness
Wisdom Tree; New Delhi, India; 978-81-8328-324; Softcover; New; 
Spiritual Intelligence refers to the intuitive knowledge of the self, others, situations and techniques to achieve the desired objectives. Hence it can be called the soul of all intelligences. Spiritual Intelligence enhances our power to inspire others by transforming their souls in such a way that their desires and aspirations are aligned in a single direction. Soul is beyond all reason and intellect. It is, in fact, the source of mind and intellect. One who knows his soul knows the universe, since soul is nothing but the microcosm of the universe. This book explains this body-soul continuum and suggests practical steps to evolve through the body-senses-mind-intellect to reach our soul. Welcome to this new path of spiritual evolution.Printed Pages: 216. 106857

The Joy of Laziness
Orient Paperbacks; New Delhi, India; 8122203892; Softcover; New; 
Everyday we are bombarded with countless demands on our energy - hurry, frustration, sleep deprivation, poor nutrition, stress and so on. To feel good we engage in intensive fitness programs, sports and radical diets. These 'high energy use' activities actually take a toll on our health, accelerating the aging process, making us more susceptible to illness and shortening our lives.Based on scientific research called Metabolic Theory, The Joy of Laziness reveals why the speed at which we live affects our energy and longevity. The authors include quizzes to help evaluate stress levels, life energy and physical well-being. They also share advice on how we could all get a little more relaxation, protect ourselves from 'energy thieves' and rediscover the health - and joy - of laziness.Printed Pages: 160. 106663

In many ways, Kohli epitomizes the New Age Indian aggressive, sometimes brash, but also a go-getter with great clarity about what he wants.After making his mark at the junior level, when he led the Under-19 team to victory in the World Cup, Virat Kohli graduated into the senior ranks quite seamlessly and is now considered a pivotal player in the Indian team.He played a significant role in the 2011 World Cup triumph and has since matured into a consistent match-winner in limited overs cricket and a highly reliable batsman in the longer version of the game. His brilliant fielding enhances manifold his value to the team.Rated among the best young players in the world today, Kohli’s filmstar looks and dashing approach on the field make him hugely popular with both fans and brands. Not quite 25, he is sound on tactics, strong on fellow-player management and is already seen as the future captain of India.Ayaz Memon, one of India’s most prolific journalists, brings with him 33 years of experience in sports writing.

Yuvraj Singh: Powerful Elegance
Jaico Publishing House; Delhi, India; 818495526X; Softcover; New; 
At the Under-19 level, Yuvraj Singh was touted as the most gifted Indian cricketer since Sachin Tendulkar.Yuvraj had flair, power and a dazzling range of strokes that had critics and fans heaping encomiums on him. While he may not have quite lived up to early expectations, especially in Test cricket, Yuvraj has been brilliantly devastating in limited overs cricket, winning countless matches on his own.But, there is more to the Yuvraj story than just his exploits on the pitch. There has been no more stirring saga in modern Indian sport than his comeback to international cricket after a year-long fight with cancer that had threatened to finish his career prematurely. His six sixes in one over, off Stuart Broad in the 2007 T20 World Championship, is testimony to Yuvraj’s innate batting prowess, though this comes with a vexing poser just why could he not replicate such form in Tests too? Perhaps, considering his new vigour, that time is now.Ayaz Memon, one of India’s most prolific journalists, brings with him 33 years of experience in sports writing.

The Challenge of Democracy: Citizenship, Rights, and Ethnic Conflicts in India and Israel
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2012; 9789382264576; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book analyzes public policy and governmental features in procedurally democratic states that govern deeply divided societies. It traces the political formula that enables such states to survive while sustaining a democratic process in the face of religious ethnic and national conflicts. It investigates citizenship discourses analyzes the mechanisms political regimes use to give rights to minorities while simultaneously limiting their power and illustrates how this unique political formula can be applied in two case studies of vastly different countries – Israel and India. The analogous conflicts in India and Israel that threaten the survival of democracy – the ethno-religious conflict between Hindus and Muslims in India and the ethno-national conflict between Jews and Arab-Palestinians in Israel – are analyzed in depth. In addition the core cases of India and Israel states in which democracy has survived for over sixty years are compared with two additional countries where democracy was short-lived.Printed Pages: 514. 101456

3292 Ayesha Salman
Blue Dust
IndiaInk/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8186939644; Softcover; New; 
Blue Dust is an emotional, philosophical and cultural journey that maps the relationships, dreams, hopes and fears of three generations of a family in Pakistan and the Middle East. The central character is a highly volatile and loving girl/woman who struggles largely with her own insecurities in her relationships with her father, husband and sister and the world she is born into (from a social and religious point of view ultimately blurring her sense of identity). A significant thread of the narrative is the impact her relationship with her sister has on her life and personality - and the strength of that bond is one of the most enduring forces. Her daughter also plays a pivotal role in encapsulating the emotional mood and tone of the book- particularly in exploring dichotomies of reality and perception - and the power of memory and dreams in articulating how these people respond to the events of their lives.Through the story of this family the author also explores issues in Pakistan relevant to class, religious and social distinctions and the barriers caused by these, and a society which perpetuates and at the same time ignores issues of paedophilia and sexual repression. Blue Dust is a misty, dream-like, touching but often bloody portrayal of intensely self reflexive dramas of these individual people but relevant to the wider issues and concerns of Pakistani society as well.'A narrative of passionate characters and many strands, skillfully woven together in this engaging debut novel. Blue Dust is a surreal, poetic and complex work that handles difficult issues with courage.' Bapsi Sidhwa'With her poetic debut novel, Blue Dust, unfolds love's many moods. Ayesha Salman joins the list of exciting new novelists from Pakistan.' Maniza Naqvi Printed Pages: 216. 108479

In case of India, it was 19th century under the patronage of British colonial rule that the middle classes beginning to emerge. There were two layers of economic system in rural and urban India.
