Glimpses of Early Indo-Indonesian Culture: Collected Papers of Himansu Bhusan Sarkar
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2001; 8173051828; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 18 x 25 Cm 
"Indonesia had close cultural relations with India since the beginning of Christian era. Indian culture influenced Indonesia to a great extent in shaping its society, religion, customs, beliefs, art and architecture, especially during the pre-Islamic period. The subsequent emergence of Islam on the Javanese scene fundamentally affected the social and religious outlook of the Javanese people, but the Hindu imprint could still be seen in the form of languages, art, literature and social ceremonies. Late Prof. H.B. Sarkar is one of the few Indian scholars who have worked on the classical period of South-East Asia and especially on Indonesia. He devoted his whole life to the study of this area and has also done commendable work on epigraphy. His two-volume work on Corpus of the Inscriptions of Java is widely acclaimed. The present book is the collection of late Prof. Sarkar’s best known and thought provoking sixteen research papers. The book will prove both stimulating and instructive to the students and researchers working on Indo-Indonesian culture." Printed Pages: 360. 100170

3407 Badal & Swapna Mukhopadhyay (Authors)
Alis World
Lustre Press/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8174366741; Hardcover; New; New; 
This is the story of Ali, an unusual child, endowed with a special talent. His life was cut short by an accident just when his talent was beginning to take shape. Written by his parents, this book chronicles the joys and the turmoil of raising Ali in a society that is largely insensitive to the needs of special children, who for one reason or another, do not conform to straightjacket societal norms. Ali began to show a talent for painting at an early age. During the last few months of his life he painted at a feverish pitch, experimenting with all kinds of mediums and art styles. Most of the paintings reproduced in this book were completed during this period. All proceeds from this book will be donated to 'Arpan', the Arpan Mukhopadhyay Memorial Trust Fund for disadvantaged children. Printed Pages: 96. 108592

3408 Badal Sircar; translated, and with an introduction, By Subhendu Sircar
Two Plays: Indian History Made Easy. Life of Bagala
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2009; 0198065493; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Badal Sircar has written, acted in, directed, and produced some of the most influential and progressive plays of post-Independence India. The pioneer of an alternative people’s theatre movement in India––the ‘Third Theatre’––Sircar continues to work outside the conventional stage. This volume includes two of Sircar’s most important works: Indian History Made Easy (‘Sukhapathya Bharater Itihas’, first produced in 1976) and Life of Bagala (‘Bagalacharitmanas’, first produced in 1998). Indian History Made Easy is significant in forging a unique relationship between form and content. Using the form of classroom teaching––with teachers instructing students––the playwright covers more than three hundred years of British rule without developing a ‘story’. Life of Bagala revolves around Bagala, and how, through supernatural intervention, he finds himself and ultimately takes a stand against injustice. Once he has gained courage, Bagala decides to throw away magic and act all by himself. The play reminds us that no change can be brought about by magic; it is only through human will and action that something worthwhile can be achieved. The comprehensive Introduction by Subhendu Sarkar discusses the playwright’s major works, draws attention to the significance of the two plays, and emphasizes on Sircar’s contribution to theatre in India. An exclusive interview with Badal Sircar, production history of his plays, and a special photo section are valuable inclusions. 030338

Fascinating Hindutva: Saffron Politics and Dalit Mobilisation
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8178299062; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
In the present Indian sociopolitical scenario, a large number of dalit castes have become the main players in the electoral arena and politically mobilizing them has become a compulsion of all political parties. The strong desire of these castes to assert their identity based on their sense of pastness is being profitably encashed by many political parties who are appropriating their heroes and recreating their histories to suit their political ideology and thereby politically mobilizing them. This is especially true in UP and Bihar where society is still divided on caste lines and the lower castes are still oppressed. Fascinating Hindutva examines how, aided by other Hindutva forces like RSS and VHP, the strategies of BJP for mobilizing dalits rests on reinterpreting their Hindu past and unifying them under the metanarrative of Hindutva. It is an exploration of the fascinating tactics used by the Hindutva forces to politically mobilize individual dalit castes like the Nishads, Musahars and Dusadhs by saffronising their heroes.

Women Heroes and Dalit Assertion in North India: Culture, Identity and Politics
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2006; 0761935371; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
This volume explores cultural repression in India and ways in which it is overcome. It studies the burgeoning Dalit politics in North India and shows how Dalit women heroes (viranganas) of the 1857 Rebellion have emerged as symbols of Dalit assertion in Uttar Pradesh and are being used by the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) to build the image of its leader, Mayawati. It demonstrates how myths and memories of the role of Dalits in India’s freedom struggle are employed for constructing identity and reconstructed for political mobilization. Key feature include: – some of the tales used to develop political consciousness at the grass-roots level; – stories picked up from among the people themselves: reinterpreted; packaged; and disseminated orally or via pamphlets; – how gods, heroes and other cultural resources of each caste are converted into political capital by giving them a visual image through calendars, statues, posters and memorials; – how the BSP creates and recreates historical material to expand its electoral base. Based on field studies and secondary information, the author outlines the politics of dissent which uses historical and cultural resources as identity markers in political mobilization. This book is invaluable for students of politics, sociology and history and all those engaged in Dalit studies. Printed Pages: 196. 028088

"The present volume, Cultures and Cosmos : The Cosmic Anthropological Principle is an endeavour to explore the numerous dimensions of the fundamental concepts in cosmic anthropology such as nature, sound, space, time, mind, etc. This remarkable work reflects the importance of cosmology in human organization which is an important tool for understanding human nature and culture.

It will help the reader to discern a crucial dimension of human self and organization. It is hoped that this interdisciplinary study will facilitate a deeper comprehension and evoke a stimulating response from students, scholars and general readers alike. With increasing specialization and fragmentation, this is a unique work of reflection and integration." Printed Pages: 152 with 8 figures & 8 tables. 100244

This book, divided into three parts, presents the independent thoughts of distinguished scholars on the satiety of life, its various styles and meanings in reference to religion and scriptures vis-a-vis modern science. The essays in the first part, based on the Shastras, try to explain the conception of life in Hindu, Buddhist, Jaina, Muslim and the Christian religions. The second part aims to understand the subject of "Life" and also to explain its essence on the basis of the Upanishads, Gita and other Shastric and Puranic teachings. The writings focus on, among other things, the mystery of life and death, the regularity of life, the effect of music on life, and the calculation of life on the basis of astrology. The third part (Modern Science) is a sincere attempt to understand life with a scientific approach. A logical explanation has been crafted on "dependence on each other in life" analyzing several literary references. This part discusses two aspects of life -- internal and external, life from a void to infinity, life being always out of bounds of time, life in a continuous flow of thoughts in Indian philosophy, etc. This anthology tries to explain the mysteries of life from various angles and will prove to be benefical to the researchers and students of Indian culture.

The Nature of Man and Culture: Alternative Paradigms in Anthropology
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2001; 8173051968; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 18 x 25 Cm 
"The Nature of Man and Culture is a response to the relentless search for alternative paradigms in anthropology. Presented here are contributions from a distinguished group of experts from India, Kenya, Korea, Venezuela, Mexico and USA. Anthropology based on the premises of a materialistic science does not answer but raises questions about man. As for secular western science what is one to think? Are other modes of thinking possible outside the modern scientific horizon? Are there no visions of man, no other pillars of truth? Must everything be aided only by reason? Must an African, an Indian and a Chinese be uprooted from the nature-integrated culture? Can one observe the hidden variables of another culture? Do we have to follow the Darwinian – Tylorian – Durkheimian – Morganian – Malinoiskian anthropology, with no real choice at all? Or do we look for a new understanding? To answer such central questions, the authors of this volume reflect on sacred science, space and time, experience and expression, and question of universality. An effort has been made to ‘re-language’ traditional thought in terms of sacred science, cosmic anthropology, sonic anthropology, philosophical anthropology, quantum anthropology, experiential anthropology, people’s anthropology and so on. This book is an important contribution to the field of anthropological studies and an invaluable tool for anyone interested in a deeper understanding of human nature and culture."

Interface of Cultural Identity and Development
Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts/D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1996; 8124600546; Hardcover; New; New; 
It is the inaugural volume of the Culture and Development series, comprising 23 presentations of a Unesco-sponsored meeting of experts: 19-23 April 1993 at IGNCA, New Delhi. Highlightng the basic distinctions that exist between anthropocentric and cosmocentric approaches to the question of cultural identity and development, the authors reflect on what constitutes culture and development not per se, but as an integral holistic notion of culture and lifestyle, culture and development, culture and region, culture and linguistic/ecological identities, and how some of the viable alternative development paradigms could be evolved from the convergence of mystical ancient insights and modern science. Authored by eminent anthropologists, scientists and other area-specialists from Australia, Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Iran, Mongolia, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Turkey, the papers here not only consider diverse theoretical issues of cultural identity and development, but also set out case studies in different field situations.Printed Pages: 101686

Integration of Endogenous Cultural Dimension Into Development
Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts/D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1997; 8124600899; Hardcover; New; New; 
This volume takes the discourse on: from the complex issues of cultural identity to the worldwide human problems stemming from the development-planners unmindfulness of endogenous cultures. Carrying 17 presentations of a Unesco-sponsored workshop: 19-23 April 1995 at IGNCA, New Delhi, it questions the modern methods of development which, evolved from the experience of the industrialized world, have brought about neither peace nor harmony, neither alleviation of poverty nor socio-economic equality. Thus arguing why current development processes call for serious rethinking, the authors spell out not only the urgency of integrating endogenous cultural dimension into the paradigms of development, but also the relevance of linking development with the ethical basis of life and living. Also included in the volume are several case studies, with special reference to the Asian situation.The contributors to this volume are reputed scholars, planners and grassroots-level social workers from China, India, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea, Thailand and Vietnam.Printed Pages: 271. 101687

Life-style and Ecology
Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts/D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1998; 8124601038; Hardcover; New; New; 
With meticulous analyses of the lifestyles of the Himalayan pastoral nomads, the Lakshadweep islanders, and Kanyakumaris Mukkuvar fisherfolk, among others, the studies here show how these communities follow the spirit of the natural world: not in imitation of old times, but in continuation of the primal vision. Delineating, thus, variegated cultural paradigms of these communities, with details like, for instance, of their belief systems, myths, rituals, folklore, songs, and their knowledge of cosmology as well as natural phenomena, the authors underscore the inseparability of nature and culture in the lived experience of traditional societies the world over. The book also carries a brilliant overview of ecology vis-a-vis traditional resource management systems.Printed Pages: 244. 101690

Culture of Peace: Experience and Experiment
Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts/D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1999; 8124601240; Hardcover; New; New; 
Is peace a dream? A Utopian abstraction in a dehumanized, fragmented world, stockpiling all-devastating war machines? And can we possibly uphold the culture of peace amidst the growing cult of violence and blind consumerism, or in a climate of distrust, acrimony and intolerance? Embodying the presentations of an Asian Conference: 25-29 November 1996 in New Delhi on "The Culture of Peace: the Experiences and the Experiments", this volume addresses these and other kindred questions, with a rare insightfulness.Cutting across narrow compartmentalizations of disciplines, some of the best minds from Asian countries here share, with wider audiences, their concern for peace, situating their sensuous/intellectual/spiritual experiences in a culture of peace. Also identifying specificities in terms of peace-threatening issues, situations, geographical zones, the volume attempts to show how education, individual responsibility, philosophy, ethics, artistic creativity, collective spirituality, Gandhian non-violence, Sufis universal love, and the Buddhist message of compassion and equnimity can reinforce the culture of peace even in the face of despair.Printed Pages: 279. 101691

The Nature of Man and Culture is a response to the relentless search for alternative paradigms in anthropology. Presented here are contributions from a distinguished group of experts from India, Kenya, Korea, Venezuela, Mexico and the USA. Anthropology based on the premises of a materialistic science does not answer but raises questions about man. To answer such central questions, the authors of this volume reflect on sacred science, space and time, experience and expression, and question of universality. An effort has been made to "re-language" traditional thought in terms of sacred science, cosmic anthropology, sonic anthropology, philosophical anthropology, quantum anthropology, experiential anthropology, people's anthropology and so on. This book is an important contribution to the field of anthropological studies and an invaluable tool for anyone interested in a deeper understanding of human nature and culture.Printed Pages: 191. 101694

Sharbari Datta: The Design Diva

Sharbari Datta is a legend in the fashion world. She entered the arena with a specific purpose in mind—to restore the beauty of ethnic menswear to its former glory. The influence of two hundred years of British rule permeated into all parts of our life and ensured that ethnic menswear had all but disappeared from men’s wardrobes, making rare appearances only during weddings and other festive occasions. And even then… what drab, lifeless colours.Enter Sharbari Datta. The visionary. The revivalist. The game changer. She noticed the gaping hole in the ethnic wear choices for men and decided to step in and fill the gap. With her own unique touches and amazing colour palettes, she catapulted the various elements of men’s ethnic wear to the forefront.She also gave ‘kantha’, the traditional handicraft of rural Bengal, a glamorous facelift. She incorporated the techniques of this simple craft and elevated it to a veritable art form.This book, replete with interviews and testimonials by Sharbari’s celebrity clientele, and amply illustrated with a treasure trove of photographs, tries to capture the essence of Sharbari’s designscape.Printed Pages: 196 with Numerous colour illustrations. 105617

Exploring Science in Ancient Indian Texts
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8124607524; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Philosophical and cultural factors play a significant role in developing scientific theories and interpreting data. These factors are also influential in assessing science and technology. We experience a visible distinction in the philosophy and culture of the West and East, mainly due to geographical and climatic reasons. And this difference reflects in their approach to science and technology too. Modern science has many roots in Vedic and Upanishadic knowledge. For historical reasons or so, this has been deliberately disassociated even from the philosophical bases. Vedic traditions or dharma traditions address many a question that modern science addresses. These include the origin of matter and universe, origin of life, origin of species and evolution, state of consciousness and mind, among others. This book addresses topics such as the basic premise of scientific approach to examine reality; mathematical and scientific knowledge, derivation, and application of Vedic perspective; and models for current scientific issues with Vedic perspective, and thus covers ideas of matter and universe, consciousness and mind, and fundamental questions of defining and applying science and scientific approaches. It also deliberates on more attractive aspects of Vedic knowledge such as Ayurveda and yoga, which are fast finding base across the globe. The volume is an effort to lay down some of the fundamental principles of Vedic traditions and practices for improving the efficacy of modern science. As ancient Indian texts contain many advanced technologies and scientific developments, it is for one's surprise that what technologies were in use and what scientific developments are relevant in our time.Printed Pages: 352. 100331

3464 Bala V. Balachandran & Kavipriya A. (Authors)
Living Legends, Learning Lessons Up, Close and Personal with 10 Global Icons
Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789385152481; Softcover; New; 
Leadership is a difficult subject to write on. There is no formula or a set of specified skills that makes a good leader. Leadership is not something that one is born with. It is a multitude of many traits and one can never stop learning how to be a better leader. Living Legends, Learning Lessons by Prof. Bala V Balachandran and Kavipriya profiles ten path-breaking leaders from the world of business, government, spirituality and academia. The book captures their life story and also offers the reader a generous glimpse of their personal side. To know the ‘person’ behind the name is a rare privilege and this book goes up, close and personal with these leaders and makes them relatable to the common man. As Keki Dadiseth notes in his Foreword, “Many of the insights that Bala mentions in this book are ones that are essential for a successful leader. The qualities of ‘sense of purpose’, ‘foresight’, ‘spirit of innovation’ are indispensable for leaders in today’s highly competitive and fast paced business landscape. At the same time, I also recognise the importance of traits like ‘acting on impulse’ and ‘apprehension of failure’ while these may seem counter intuitive to some. Each leader’s story is unique, just as their personalities. Each story has an interesting set of insights and ones that will resonate when you interact with leaders in your daily life and prepare yourself for leadership.”Living Legends, Learning Lessons is at one level a book about leadership. In equal measure, it is also a book about taking adversity head-on and emerging triumphant. Each one of these stories is a life-lesson in itself. Truly an enriching read! 109725

Kautilya: The True Founder of Economics
Vitasta Publishing Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8192535495; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book seeks to highlight the monumental contribution of Kautilya to economic thought. The Arthashastra explicitly promotes the goals of both artha (material well-being) and dharma (righteous behavior) as a consistent whole and repudiates any deviation from them. A serious attempt is made here to revise the currently accepted history of economic thought. It is claimed that presentation of Kautilya's original contributions should succeed in dispelling the deep-seated myth that economics originated during the eighteenth century and Adam Smith was the founder of economics. A claim is only as good as the arguments it stands on. For the first time, strong arguments are provided by the author as to why Kautilya should be considered as the founder of economics in the fourth century BCE. It is also argued that Kautilya's The Arthashastra may be correctly designated as Dharmanomics: economics built on an ethical foundation, projecting economics and economic policy in a more meaningful and socially desirable perspective. The book also shows that the Hindu civilization is not averse to economic growth. Printed Pages: 456. 107223

India's Globalization: Evaluating the Economic Consequences
Vistaar Publications; New Delhi, India; 2007; 8178297582; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
This study systematically evaluates the economic consequences of globalization for India in the light of the attack of the critics against globalization on the grounds of economic stagnation, “deindustrialization”, “denationalization”, destabilization, and impoverishment. On the basis of abundant qualitative and quantitative data, it strongly repudiates the case of the critics, and demonstrates that India has been a significant beneficiary of the globalization process. The policy conclusion that flows from this experience is that India ought to be, in general, more open to globalization, in the interest of sustaining economic growth and enhancing the welfare of its people. To this end it should push forward with the reform agenda. Printed Pages: 112. 028519

The Geopolitics of Globalization: The Consequences for Development
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2005; 019567202X; First Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
Baldev Raj Nayar has long been an insightful observer of comparative and international politics. In this book he fixes his gaze on globalization, and presents a political thesis to explain what is widely viewed as a primarily economic phenomenon. He argues, first of all, that the recent round of globalization is very diferent from the economic integration seen earlier in world history. Second, and more critically, he contends that geopolitics has been a driving force in the way globalization has evolved. Like all his arguments before, this new argument is worthy of careful attention. -- Ashutosh Varshney, University of Michigan For policymakers, scholars, and the general public in any developing country, understanding in the context of globalization is of elemental importance today. However, this requires a prior comprehension of the nature, causes, and consequences of globalization. The key underlying concern in this volume is the lesson that the evolution and contemporary structuring of globalization holds for developing countries. Cast within the overall conceptual framework of international relations theory, it explores how the process of globalization still remains 'truncated'--basically confined to the 'triad' of the US, Europe, and Japan. For Baldev Raj Nayar, the explanation for both the advance of contemporary globalization and its 'truncated' nature lies in geopolitics. Indeed, the volume is distinctive for its underlining the central role that geopolitics has played in the contemporary structuring of globalization, focusing specially on the US as the hegemonic power along with its European allies--the 'regime makers' in the modern-day international system. The book operates on a vast theoretical and empirical canvas. It informs readers on the nature of globalization and the role of markets and geopolitics. It then applies its finds to the understanding of developmental success in the original 'Asian tigers', the Southeast Asian nations, and China. Its treatment of India and Pakistan is noteworthy for its illumination of the contrast between the two countries in the interaction of geopolitics and economic policy. Printed Pages: 311. 009582

Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2010; 0198064179; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Bursting suddenly on the world scene in the last quarter of the twentieth century, globalization both as process and concept has fast come to dominate contemporary discourse on human affairs.

India in the World Order: Searching for Major-Power Status
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 8175962313; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Two well-known scholars examine India`s search for a major role in the international system. Central to the argument is India`s belief that the acquisition of an independent nuclear capability is key to obtaining such status. The book details the constraints at the international, domestic and perceptual levels that India has faced in this endeavor and concludes that systemic and domestic changes will be necessary before it can achieve its goal. Given recent developments, the book is extremely timely. Its incisive analysis will be illuminating for students and policy makers. Contents 1. Introduction: India and its search for a major power role 2. Major power status in the modern world: India in comparative perspective 3. The constraints on India: international and domestic 4. India`s quest for a major power role under Nehru: the formative grand strategy of a new state, 1947–1964 5. Strategy in hard times: the long march to building capabilities after Nehru, 1964–1990 6. After the Cold War: adaptation, persistence, and assertion, 1991–2001 7. Conclusions: India and the emerging international order. Printed Pages: 302 with 2 tables. 027071

3481 Baldev Raj Nayyar
Globalization and India's Economic Integration
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789384463441; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book shows how globalization’s pressures favoring efficiency paradoxically induced the state to push for consolidation on a pan-Indian scale in the area of fiscal federalism and to advance the cause of the common market through reforming the indirect tax system; meanwhile the state has pressed forward with social inclusiveness as never before in its economic planning. For another the market too has been instrumental because of its widened scope and its inherently expanding character in strengthening economic integration through trade expansion diffusion of industry and increased inter-state migration. Nayar’s groundbreaking work will interest students scholars and specialists of India South Asia globalization and political economy.Printed Pages: 316. 101454

Revisiting Nehru in Contemporary India
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789383649334; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Jawaharlal Nehru being an architect of Indian polity, economy and foreign policy set the ball rolling. However, they have witnessed cataclysmic changes over a period of time. Indian polity has witnessed different waves of reorganisation of states, evolving democracy, spelling out of quasi-federal system and building a more inclusive political nation. Nehru set the agenda of economic development and framed the strategy of development accordingly. Since 1991, the Indian economy has already experienced a shift in its strategy of development from mixed to market friendly economy but it has neither been able to address its economic problems fully nor does the logic of neo-liberal economy match with social democracy as envisaged by Nehru. India’s world view was shaped by Nehru keeping in view internal and external scenarios apart from contemplating the needs and future aspirations of a newly liberated nation. It has already been redefined by his successors in the light of changing times and space, without undermining the basic postulations of India’s foreign policy laid down by Nehru. Nehru is either appreciated for what he has done or blamed for what he could not do or handle properly when he was at the helm of affairs. At times Nehru’s performance has been assessed without locating him in the time and space in which he performed with all the limitations of a newly liberated state. In this volume an attempt has made to have a fair understanding about Nehru by placing him in the context in which he worked and by taking into account the challenges that Post-Colonial India was facing during his time. However, the problems faced by the neo-liberal economy, and the challenges confronting Indian polity and foreign policy have again invoked the relevance of Nehruvian philosophy in contemporary India. The contributors to this volume have analysed the diverse aspects of Nehru’s thinking and the policies that flowed from it to understand their relevance in contemporary Indian, Asian and global context.Printed Pages: 276. 105049

3492 Balmiki Prasad Singh; Foreword By His Holiness the Dalai Lama
Bahudha and the Post 9/11 World
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0195693558; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
The rise of terrorism and fundamentalism in recent times has brought about phenomenal changes in global politics. These unprecedented challenges call for a new, bold, and imaginative statecraft from world leaders. Underlining the need to transcend age-old peace mechanisms and reconstruct our language of discourse, this book propounds the concept of Bahudh"a—an eternal reality or continuum, a dialogue of harmony, and peaceful living. Bahudh"a recognizes the distinction between plural societies and pluralism, facilitates exchange of views, and promotes understanding of the collective good. The book is divided into five parts. The first part discusses the major events witnessed by the world during 1989–2001—the fall of Berlin Wall, transfer of Hong Kong to China, and the terrorist attack on the USA on September 11— and their implications for various nations, cultures, and international peace. The next part discusses India’s experiences in handling the pluralistic challenge by citing examples from the Vedas and Puranas and analysing policies followed by Ashoka, Kabir, Guru Nanak, Akbar, and Mahatma Gandhi. In the subsequent sections, the author underlines the importance of Bahudh"a as an instrument of public policy for harmony and also discusses the global imperatives of following such an approach. He highlights the central role of education and religion in the building of a harmonious society and advocates the strengthening of the United Nations to become an effective global conflict resolution mechanism. B.P. Singh argues that the answer to terrorism lies in respecting human rights and appreciating various cultures and value systems. This is crucial for facilitating and enhancing dialogue processes eventually leading to amity and a peaceful world. 022710

Against Stigma: Studies in Caste, Race and Justice Since Durban
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8125036008; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Historical barriers still inhibit comparative frameworks to map and challenge two of the most odious forms of discrimination--racism and casteism. Both justify themselves on a principle of biological descent; they enable stigma as if it were a natural fact, refusing to see it as deleterious social exclusion. Against Stigma carries fifteen essays that build upon the energies generated in scholarship as a result of the landmark 2001 World Conference Against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia, and Related Intolerance at Durban, South Africa. The contributors, who represent a multiplicity of disciplines and intellectual orientations, explore comparative aspects of caste and race including conundrums of a globalized discourse and national problematics of racism and casteism. The editors’ Introduction locates this comparative project around descent-based discrimination in a wide context; the editors suggest that globalization itself holds out the promise of more generalized practices of resistance and emancipation by oppressed national minorities. A critical bibliography on race and caste is a bonus to students and teachers of Human Rights, Race Relations, Caste Studies and Politics of Socio-economic Exclusion. At a time when democratic movements are sweeping across the globe, Against Stigma presents a fresh selection of authoritative scholarship and instructive debates centred on race and caste, two of the most potent and divisive concepts in the histories of humanity, sociology and human governance.

3500 Balram Sangel, V. Gopalan & Jagdish Rai Goel
All India Vat Digest: 1985-2014 (with Judicial Review),(Second Edition), 4 Vols
Commercial Law Publishers India (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 9789384245771; Second Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
India is perhaps the only country which has more taxes than any other country. We have income-tax, wealth tax, gift tax (presently not leviable), service tax, Central excise duty, State excise duties, customs duty, entry tax, octroi, professional tax, market fee, sales tax (now value added tax), entertainment tax, luxury tax and a variety of local cesses and levies. Of all these sales tax is the one which virtually affects most number of citizens. Sales tax is a tax levied on the retail price of merchandise, collected by the retailer and remitted to the Government. General sales tax is comparatively a recent innovation unlike excise tax or duty which has been prevalent since ancient times. Sales tax being a State subject under the Constitution of India. Each State has a separate Act dealing with sales tax/ value added tax and related rules . Though the Sales Tax Acts of all the States are more or less similar in content and applicability these are administered by as many Governments and interpreted by as many High Courts. Thus over the years the sales tax law as a genre had grown enormously and so too the case law rendered by the Sales Tax Tribunals as well as the higher judiciary. With a view to encourage industrialization of backward areas most of the State Governments had framed Sales Tax incentive schemes under the new Industrial Policy offering sales tax exemptions, deferment of tax, sales tax loans in respect of establishment of new industrial units, expansions and diversifications. Such Schemes had been amended and modified from time to time. There have been instances where the Government had withdrawn exemptions. The litigation pertaining to such schemes had in fact been enormous. Also on account of issue of exemption notifications, withdrawal of such notifications, amendment of the schedule of items exempt from tax etc., the litigation and consequent case law had been prolific. Works contract and transit/check-post violations are other areas which had been generating substantial litigation. Therefore there arises a dire need for a Digest of cases as the present one. Accordingly, this comprehensive Digest was designed in the year 2000 and in the first instance covered the cases reported from the year 1985 up to the date of its publication in 2000. The present edition has incorporated the cases reported thereafter up to Volume 71 of VST. Virtually now this is a thirty years' Digest of sales tax cases and perhaps the only publication of this kind in the market.Printed Pages: 7200. 101718
