Sharbari Datta: The Design Diva
Niyogi Books; Delhi, India; 2015; 9789383098880; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 22 x 28 Cm 
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

Beda Stjernschantz 1867-1910
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2014; 9522225258; New; 
Beda Stjernschantzin (1867?1910) opintie vei Pariisiin, missä hän tutustui ajan kansainvälisiin taidevirtauksiin ja kiinnostui erityisesti symbolismista. Matka jatkui Viroon, Venäjälle, Italiaan ja Yhdysvaltoihin. Sairauden sävyttämä, lyhyeksi jäänyt elämä on syynä siihen, että hänen taiteellinen tuotantonsa jäi suppeaksi eikä sitä heti ymmärretty. Hiljattain löydetty Stjernschantzin kirjeenvaihto ja muistiinpanot antavat hänestä aiempaa täydemmän ja monisyisemmän kuvan. Printed Pages: 302. 114257

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

3820 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

3831 Baldev Raj Nayar
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

3832 Baldev Raj Nayar
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

Globalization and Politics in India
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. Yet, it is the object of both ardent support and powerful attack. This extensive volume—in the Themes in Politics series—provides a comprehensive view of the debates surrounding globalization and its impact on India. It offers diverse viewpoints against the backdrop of a blending of the economics and politics of globalization. Scholars across the social sciences, policymakers and media specialists, Marxists and liberals, discuss the diffusion of globalization and its causes and consequences. Together they present their views on the role of ideas, interests, and institutions in the adjustment to globalization. The introduction provides a broad overview of the nature and development of economic globalization and India’s experience with it. The various readings are organized into five broad sections: the nature of globalization, both in its past and contemporary incarnations; the nature of economic strategy in India that preceded globalization; the shift to economic liberalization and the stimulus for it; the consequences of globalization and the associated process of economic liberalization on India’s relationship with the world; and the impact of these processes, internally, on India’s economy, society, and polity. Singh Ahluwalia, Sanjaya Baru, Jagdish Bhagwati, Amartya Sen, and Joseph E. Stiglitz, among others, this volume will be of interest to advanced students and scholars of politics, economics, and political economy, as well as to journalists, policymakers, and the informed general reader. 033660

3835 Baldev Raj Nayar and T.V. Paul
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

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

3841 Baljit Singh (Ed.)
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

3848 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.

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

3866 Bama; translated from the Tamil By Malini Seshadri; Introduction By R. Azhagarasan
Vanmam: Vendetta
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0195696336; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Recent years have seen a rise in the genre of Dalit literature with Bama at the forefront. Characterized by startling language, ethnographic detail, and native idiom, Dalit writing in Tamil has gone hand in hand with political activism, and with critical and ideological debate. However a large portion of this writing has concentrated on the theme of victimhood. Vanmam, Bama’s third full-length work, is an exception focusing instead on the inter-caste rivalry within Dalit communities. It highlights the animosity between the Pallars and the Parayars of Kandampatti village—who identify themselves as Hindus and Christians respectively—and describes how the landowners of the dominant Naicker caste stoke the fires of intra-Dalit hostilities to benefit themselves, ignoring the human costs paid for time and again in misery, loss, and death. An important contribution to the corpus of Dalit literature, this translation makes Vanmam available to a wider reading public. A comprehensive introduction skillfully sketches the history of the Dalit movement in Tamil Nadu, and an interview with the author carrying visuals of her village Kandampatti provide the context for this novel and, in a broader sense, for all of Bama’s writings.

Gandharvi: Life of a Musician
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2017; 8125064230; Softcover; New; 14 x 23 Cm 
Gandharvi: Life of a Musician, by the Sahitya Akademi Award-winning novelist Bani Basu (and translated by English scholar Jayita Sengupta), tells the story of Apala, a gifted singer of Hindustani classical music. She was born into an old, middle-class family of limited means in north Calcutta. To her family, her music meant little, as it did not fit their idea of ‘respectability’. Her husband ‘chose’ her after hearing her sing at a public concert, yet her marital life proved loveless. Her in-laws were insensitive and exploitative. Her children grew up learning to ignore their mother’s music. Shorn of freedom, love and, above all, music, Apala’s life moved towards a tragic end.Surrounding Apala’s story are the interlinked lives of other practitioners of music and classical art, like Soham, Mitul, Rameshwar Thakur, Dipali and Shekharan. Their lives intersected with Apala’s in ways that profoundly affected all of them. Written in lilting prose that draws on the idioms of Hindustani classical music, Gandharvi is also musical in its form, where in the end the movement of music and the life story of Apala become one and the same. A thinly veiled depiction of the classical music scene of Calcutta in the 1960s, this modern Bengali classic is also a celebration of the indomitable spirit of music. Printed Pages: 288. 112293

This translation from the Bangla Antarghat is the story of a group of young friends who had committed themselves idealistically and politically to the Naxalite movement that rocked Bengal in the 1960s. Moving seamlessly from the past to the present, Basu’s narrative is compelling and breathless, as the novel’s edgy, nervous rhythms reconstruct and call up the turbulent history of a difficult period.

3891 Bankimchandra Chatterji; translated with an Introduction and Critical Apparatus By Julius J. Lipner
Debi Chaudhurani or the Wife Who Came Home
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2011; 0198067933; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
First published as a serial in the monthly journal Bangadarsan in 1882, Debi Chaudhurani had a profound impact in invoking India’s nationalistic spirit against British colonial rule. Set in late eighteenth-century Bengal, Debi Chaudhurani —the second in a trilogy of novels—revolves around Debi and her transformation from a dutiful young Brahmin housewife rejected by her in-laws to a hardy bandit queen and social benefactress. Later Debi returns to her husband’s home in the role of a virtuous wife and mother symbolizing the emergent motherland, glorified famously in Anandamath. Here Bankimchandra dwells on a woman’s conduct in private and public spheres as she copes with existing realities to find a room of her own. Further, the novel focuses on caste, and what it means to be an ideal Brahmin housewife. Translated with an Introduction and Critical Apparatus by Julius J. Lipner, this volume places the novel in the socio-political context of late eighteenth and early nineteenth century colonial India. Detailed explanatory notes and maps add value to this edition. The ideas expressed in the novel—considered revolutionary at the time—are still relevant in present times. Printed Pages: 289. 036597

Vaisnava Art: Iconography of Kashmir
Abhinav Publications/Kaveri Books; New Delhi, India; 8170173051; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Vaisnavism played a very significant role in socio-religious and artistic expressions of Kashmir in ancient and medieval periods. Vaisnavism carved its due place in the minds of the people in the valley with equal amount, if not more than that of Buddhism and 'Saivism. In general, the religion of Vishnu in the Kashmir valley shared the pan-indian notion, yet in certain aspects, it maintained its individualistic approach. Such differences are noted in the texts as well as in the artistic expressions of the valley. The present book deals with the various facets of Vaisnavism in Kashmir with particular reference to the Vaisnava icons and art. The book deals with Para, Vyuha and Vibhava aspects of Vishnu as well as with composite and syncretic aspects of the God. Attention has also been paid to the minor Vaisnavite deities including the personification of Vishnu's attributes. There has been a dearth of a comprehensive study on Vaisnava art and iconography of Kashmir and this book is likely to fill the gap. Printed Pages: 80. 107949

Shaiva Thought and Art of Kashmir: Cosmology and Cosmic Mainfestations
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8173055165; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 22 x 28 Cm 
Indian thought-currents are deeply rooted in the theory and concept of rtam as the framework in which the process of creation, sustenance and dissolution operates. It views man and nature in a holistic perspective. Space, time, primal elements are the essentials as are the primary faculties of sense perceptions. The scholars have been investigating many dimensions of these fundamental concepts. The author in the present book has entered into an intensive holistic dialogue between and amongst disciplines ranging from art history, archaeology, anthropology, sociology, philosophy to astro-physics and micro-biology. But, the main premise of the volume is based on the Shaiva thought and art of Kashmir. Kashmir, with its hoary past and bewitching beauty, philosophical intellectualism, mystic spiritualism and artistic traditions is a paradise on earth. It has been crucible for refining human thought, be it the Vaishnava cult, Shakti cult, Shaivism, Buddhism or Sufism. Kashmir has recognized the existence of various paths to reach the absolute truth. The present volume gives a detailed account of the interconnectedness of nature, culture and cosmology; and cosmological interpretation of Kashmir Shaivism and its synthesis with the science. It also studies Kashmir Shaivism in its historical perspective, its metaphysics and iconography; and interrelatedness of the Shiva-Shakta cults. The primary sources of images and icons portraying Shaiva themes have been used. The literary materials have been profusely utilised to reconstruct the history of the Shaiva religion with a view to reinterpret the iconography. The volume is a welcome addition to the rather sporadically treated subject with a considerable material for thought and comparison. With this work, not only the historians of art but anthropologists of religion and scientists of environment, space and cosmological studies would be in a position to follow the fascinating thought trails in Art and Nature.

Global Rock Art
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8173054029; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 22 x 28 Cm 
The vast corpus of rock art that occurs in most of the countries of the world serves as an almost universal expression and communication of human thought since the dawn of humanity. It is one of our greatest surviving art treasures. The intrinsic efficacy of rock art lies in its universality of appeal and to endure and sustain in a manner in which all can discern it. Until recent past the content of rock art has been much commented on as an indicator of the stage of development of the makers of the rock art. But now for quite some time the attempts are being made by many scholars to explore the possibility of the proximity of rock art with the art of many living communities of the world, such as the indigenous people the aboriginals the tribals and the nomads.Printed Pages: 532 with 256 figures & maps & 12 colours & 16 b/w illustrations. 100122

The proximity of this art and its affinity with the art of many living communities of the world today makes it all the more significant and valuable. It can thus be treated as a source of cultural communication between the past, the present and the future. To celebrate what is undeniably one of the earliest forms of art, Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts (IGNCA) organised an international conference on rock art, comprising of special lectures, artists workshops and exhibitions. This global event, with the participation of renowned scholars from all over the world was held at New Delhi from 6th December, 2012 to 23rd January, 2013. The present volumes, Rock Art Studies (I & II), are the proceedings of the conference. The two volumes contain selected articles representing rock art from all over the world. The first volume covers subjects related to content, context, methodology, conservation and management while the second volume contains papers on the interpretation of rock art. The articles in the volumes hold good promise in terms of recent trends in rock art research. The vast spectrum of subjects/themes covered by these two volumes indicates the concerns and seriousness of present day researchers for the study and conservation of rock art globally. Their main concern is exploring the ‘future of the past’ beyond the duty of discovering, protecting, and educating about archaeological treasures. As rock art is an intricate and complex domain covering material and cognitive aspects of culture, a multidisciplinary approach has been recommended by many contributors to decode and understand it in all its dimensions. The beautifully illustrated volumes aim to boost and promote rock art research. They will not only interest scholars but also general readers at large and will certainly contribute to enhance our vision of rock art.

Index.Rock art is a vital archaeological source to study and analyse the cognitive evolution of the human intellect across the world. The importance of rock art and its dating has long been a key issue of rock-art research and continues to be attended by difficulties about methodology, misinterpretation of findings and overconfidence in the reliability or precision of results. Most of the rock-art researchers’ primary focus in their investigations for rock-art dating at present has been to establish chronologies of different rock-art sites.The present volume mainly emphasizes on long due and much discussed issues like that of what will be the suitable dating techniques for Indian rock art. Some of the topics in the volume cover different dating methods such as the minimum dating by archaeological excavation, radiocarbon analyses of mineral accretions or their inclusions, radiocarbon analyses of paint residues or their inclusions, geomorphological methods, minimum or maximum ages derived from biological accretions, lichenometry, colorimetry of patinae, radiocarbon analyses of charcoal and beeswax figures, and any other methods of ‘direct’ dating of rock art. This volume includes not only new insights but also new dating results. The data and interpretations put forward by various scholars are comprehensive and analytical. Most of their views are appropriate and hold promise in terms of recent trends in dating rock art. Printed Pages: 245 with numerous illustrations. 110955
