The Quantitative Dating of the Rock Art/C.M. Nautiyal. 11. Some Key Aspects of Rock Art Dating/Bansi Lal Malla. 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

The Blind Pilgrim

Lately, Lucky Boyce’s life has seen nothing but trouble. Her marriage to the wealthy and charming Vikram Singh has ended on the cruel grounds of infertility and, along with it, her career as a successful entrepreneur, once reputed for transforming an ailing export house into a profit-making venture. Defeated, and desperate for respite, Lucky arrives in New York, where her quest to tidy up her life begins with promise. A voluntary assignment as yoga instructor to inmates in a prison opens up a world where she can make a difference and in that unlikeliest of places she finds unusual friends, including the brooding tattoo artist and ex-con, Steve. Love suddenly resurfaces when she bumps into Amay, an old friend and anchor; and when Mike Lockwood, an associate from Lucky’s days in the export business, offers her a partnership in his firm, she is all set to start afresh. But a series of bizarre events leaves Lucky groping blindly for answers, yet again. Who is behind the nasty attacks and elaborate lies that threaten to ruin her? Why is her journey through life marred by duplicity and betrayal at every turn? Or is it that she simply needs to overcome her fears and look within herself for the path that will help her break free from this vicious maze? Printed Pages: 304. 021402

3908 Baradwaj Rangan
Dispatches From the Wall Corner: A Journey Through Indian Cinema
Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789384030568; Softcover; New; 
Disclaimer – Baradwaj Rangan has no illusions of grandeur that you are going to base your movie watching on his reviews or even agree with his-assessment of movies. He is a film critic simply because he loves cinema-discussing, analyzing and getting nostalgic about it-and has no qualms in accepting that, pop culture doesnt always welcome the deserving and the worthy-but sometimes the side show carnivals that make-modern life such an entertaining merry-go-round. Split into six sections – Actors, Hindi Cinema, Directors, Music, Tamil Cinema and Reviews – Dispatches from the Wall Corner is a collection of Baradwaj Rangans best writings and outstanding in unraveling the magical world of Indian cinema. For instance, like a fawning fan before the Superstars altar, he convinces us how Rajinikanth isnt a formula that can be bottled and bartered. Or despite an obvious reverence for masala Hindi films of the Seventies, including Sholay and Don, he unhesitatingly describes Yash Chopras characters as ‘pretty people in prettier clothes’. Straddling the worlds of Tamil and Hindi movies with great panache, the book is wonderfully honest about how, for instance, Hindi cinema has learned that maximum profits can be made from the handfuls of multiplexes, while on the other hand, Tamil cinema continues to tell the stories of the villages. 109685

So Close to Heaven: The Vanishing Buddhist Kingdoms of the Himalayas
Vintage/TBI; New Delhi, India; 0679743634; Softcover; New; 
For more than a thousand years Tibet, Sikkim, Ladakh, and Bhutan were the santuaries of Tantric Buddhism. But in the last half of this century, geopolitics has scoured the landscape of the Himalayas, and only the reclusive kingdom of Bhutan remains true to Tantric Buddhism. As she travels through Bhutan and its neighbots, Crossette introduces readers to a world that has emerged from the middle ages only to find itself peering into the abyss of modernity.

Islam in South Asia in Practice
Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8178242974; First Indian Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
This volume brings together the work of more than thirty scholars of Islam and Muslim societies in South Asia. It comprises a rich anthology of primary texts that contributes to a new appreciation of the lived religious and cultural experiences of the world's largest population of Muslims. The thirty-four selections—translated from Arabic, Persian, Urdu, Bengali, Tamil, Gujarati, Hindavi, Dakhani, and other languages—highlight a wide variety of genres, many rarely found in standard accounts of Islamic practice, from oral narratives to elite guidance manuals, from devotional songs to secular judicial decisions arbitrating Islamic law, and from political posters to a discussion among college women affiliated with an “Islamist” organization. Drawn from premodern texts, modern pamphlets, government and organizational archives, new media, and contemporary fieldwork, the selections reflect the rich diversity of Islamic belief and practice in South Asia. Each reading is introduced with a brief contextual note from its scholar-translator, and Barbara Metcalf introduces the whole volume with a substantial historical overview.

Islam in South Asia: In Practice
Orient BlackSwan/Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8178243601; Softcover; New; 
Two puzzles of modern India—one well known, the other overlooked—form the core of this book. For fifty years, the state of Kerala has been famed, first as a home of Communists, then as a perplexing ‘model of development’. But why Communists? And why development, especially in a place where the economy usually underperformed even lowly national averages? Part of an answer lies in the unusual place of women in Kerala and their changing role in the past 200 years. Another part lies in the other, often under-analyzed focus of this book: media and communication. Printing and publishing in Indian languages—and accompanying questions of literacy and language identity—present tantalizing puzzles. Since data were first collected in the 1950s, Kerala’s people have been India’s greatest newspaper consumers. Do literacy and newspapers mobilize people for political action or does politicization make people into newspaper readers? To what extent do media wait on consumer capitalism before they break into the countryside to become truly mass media, as they have in India in the past thirty years? Media and Modernity ponders these questions, first from the perspective of Kerala, often a forerunner of developments elsewhere, and then at an all-India level. Readers intrigued by questions of development, communications, politics, and the role of women will find in this collection stories that surprise and arguments that provoke.Printed Pages: 504. 101962

A Concise History of Modern India (Second Edition)
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2008; 0521733103; Second Edition; Paperback; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
In a second edition of their successful Concise History of Modern India, Barbara Metcalf and Thomas Metcalf explore India's modern history afresh and update the events of the last decade. These include the takeover of Congress from the seemingly entrenched Hindu nationalist party in 2004, India's huge advances in technology and the country's new role as a major player in world affairs. From the days of the Mughals, through the British Empire, and into Independence, the country has been transformed by its institutional structures. It is these institutions which have helped bring about the social, cultural and economic changes that have taken place over the last half century and paved the way for the modern success story. Despite these advances, poverty, social inequality and religious division still fester. In response to these dilemmas, the book grapples with questions of caste and religious identity, and the nature of the Indian nation. Contents List of illustrations Preface to the second edition Preface to the first edition Glossary Chronology 1. Sultans, Mughals and pre-colonial Indian society 2.

A Concise History of India
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2008; 0521733103; Second Edition; Paperback; New; 135 x 215 Mm 
Two distinguished historians, Barbara Metcalf and Thomas Metcalf, come together to write a new and accessible account of modern India. The narrative, which charts the history of India from the Mughals, through the colonial encounter and independence, to the present day, challenges imperialist notions of an unchanging and monolithic India bounded by tradition and religious hierarchies. Instead the book reveals a complex society which is constantly transforming and reinventing itself in response to political and social challenges. The book is beautifully composed and richly illustrated. It will be essential reading for anyone who wants to understand India, her turbulent past and her present uncertainties. Contents 1. Sultans, Mughals and Pre-Colonial Indian Society; 2. Mughal Twilight: the emergence of regional states and the East India Company; 3. The East India Company Raj, 1772–1850; 4. Revolt, the modern state and colonized subjects, 1848–1885; 5. Civil Society, Colonial Restraints, 1885–85; 6. The crisis of the colonial Order: Reform, disillusionment, division, 1919–39; 7. The 1940s: triumph and tragedy; 8. Congress Raj: democracy and development, 1950–89; 9. Democratic India in the nineties. Printed Pages: 346 with 52 half-tones and 4 maps. 008691

Diasporas and Development
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8125035842; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
Diasporas and Development aims to deepen the understanding of the promise and pitfalls of diaspora engagement and how it may help to bridge the distances between societies in an unequal world. Just as trade, finance, information and technologies are moving rapidly across borders, so too have labour markets and transnational migrant communities. Migrants are sending large quantities of money back to their countries of origin in the form of philanthropy, remittances and commercial investments. They are also sharing knowledge and skills learned or honed abroad. Is greater global equity an inevitable consequence of diaspora engagement in their countries of origin, or can it actually aggravate inequity? Diasporas and Development examines the positive—and sometimes negative—impacts of diaspora engagement through examination of policies and philanthropic modalities as well as specific regional examples of diaspora activity.

The Colours of Southern India
Thames & Hudson; London, UK; 1999; 0500281343; First Edition; Paperback; New; New; 20 Cms x 24 Cms 
Far away from the Taj Mahal, the Red Fort and other tourist destinations of the north lies another India: its lush and beautiful Southern States. In Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Goa, brilliant colour is the natural result of a hot climate and fertile landscape, but is also deeply symbolic in what is one of the world’s most spiritual countries. Reminders of Vishnu, Lakshmi and Hanuman can be found in the blue of saris, the red of hot chillies and the vibrant green of rice fields. For anyone fortunate enough to have visited this region, The Colours of Southern India will evoke powerful memories of a magical land; while those who have thought about travelling there will find this book an inspiration.

3925 Barbara N. Ramusack
The Indian Princes and Their States
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 0521670470; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Although the princes of India have been caricatured as oriental despots and British stooges, Barbara Ramusack’s study argues that the British did not create the princes. On the contrary, many were consummate politicians who exercised considerable degrees of autonomy until the disintegration of the princely states after independence. Ramusack’s synthesis has a broad temporal span, tracing the evolution of the Indian kings from their pre-colonial origins to their roles as clients in the British colonial system. The book breaks ground in its integration of political and economic developments in the major princely states with the shifting relationships between the princes and the British. It represents a major contribution, both to British imperial history in its analysis of the theory and practice of indirect rule, and to modern South Asian history, as a portrait of the princes as politicians and patrons of the arts. Contents List of illustrations General editor’s preface Acknowledgements List of abbreviations Map 1. Introduction: Indian princes and British imperialism 2. Princely states prior to 1800 3.

3926 Barbara Pidgeon
Shakti Manifest: A Silent Revolution
Westland Limited; New Delhi, India; 9789384030292; Softcover; New; 
The story of a profound and beautiful gurushishya relationship in 1989, the village of Rikhia in the eastern state of Jharkhand was a forgotten corner of the world-its inhabitants living in impoverished and dismal conditions. The primarily Santali population seemed to be stuck in the dark ages-without electricity, water, roads or sanitation. Disease and illness was rampant, malnutrition widespread and no scope for education or a better future. Today, however, there has been a 360 degrees transformation in this village-you can see well-fed toddlers playing on quiet roadsides, calling out namo Narayan to a passerby, older children cycling to well-attended schools and everyone is busy in a productive and positive way.What happened? That is the story Barbara Pidgeon tells and in doing so, reveals the extraordinary lives of the two people, the principal architects of this change and their relationship to one another. One of them, the guru, Swami Satyananada, a stalwart of yogic philosophy, founder of the Bihar school of yoga and follower of Swami Sivananda, the Saraswati lineage of yogis and the other, his disciple, Swami Satyasangananda, popularly known as Swami Satsangi, one of the first woman yogis. The two, as Swami Satsangi says, are like the Shiva and Shakti and in essence, just as Shakti and Shiva are one, they are one-he the consciousness and she the energy-making for a beautiful balance and synergy. This book gives an insight to both these deeply spiritual and extraordinary people from whose lives we have many lessons to learn. 109669

Mughal and Persian Paintings and Illustrated Manuscripts in the Raza Library, Rampur
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2006; 8173052786; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
During the 19th century and the first half of the 20th century the Nawwabs of Rampur, the hereditary rulers of Rohilkhand, a district some 75 kilometers east of New Delhi, amassed a large collection of books and art, including illustrated books and album paintings. Their collection was given to the people of India at the time of partition. The Raza Library at Rampur thus possesses a remarkable collection of Mughal and Persian Paintings and illustrated books. This includes miniatures from the great Jahangirnama, considered by many as the greatest of all Mughal illustrated manuscripts. The Raza Library holdings of the Akbar period are equally distinguished including a work on astrology Tarjama-I Sirr al-maktum and a Divan-I Hafiz with eleven miniatures by Akbar’s best court artists painted in Lahore about 1585, published here with much new scholarship. A painting of the aging Jahangir at the jharokha and many other portraits of the 17th-19th centuries will come as wonderful surprises to those interested in Indian art throughout the world. Most of the miniatures (some 4,000 in number) and the contents of thirty-five albums of paintings (an additional 1,000 items) are catalogued herein. Many of these are being reproduced for the first time. The catalogue entries include up-to-date scholarly research on Mughal and Persian painting.

3932 Barbara Schmitz and Ziyaud-Din A. Desai
Mughal and Persian Paintings and Illustrated Manuscripts in the Raza Library, Rampur
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2006; 8173052786; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
During the 19th century and the first half of the 20th century the Nawwabs of Rampur, the hereditary rulers of Rohilkhand, a district some 75 kilometers east of New Delhi, amassed a large collection of books and art, including illustrated books and album paintings. Their collection was given to the people of India at the time of partition. The Raza Library at Rampur thus possesses a remarkable collection of Mughal and Persian Paintings and illustrated books. This includes miniatures from the great Jahangirnama, considered by many as the greatest of all Mughal illustrated manuscripts. The Raza Library holdings of the Akbar period are equally distinguished including a work on astrology Tarjama-I Sirr al-maktum and a Divan-I Hafiz with eleven miniatures by Akbar’s best court artists painted in Lahore about 1585, published here with much new scholarship. A painting of the aging Jahangir at the jharokha and many other portraits of the 17th-19th centuries will come as wonderful surprises to those interested in Indian art throughout the world. Most of the miniatures (some 4,000 in number) and the contents of thirty-five albums of paintings (an additional 1,000 items) are catalogued herein. Many of these are being reproduced for the first time. The catalogue entries include up-to-date scholarly research on Mughal and Persian painting. An extensive bibliography and numerous indices make this volume a helpful tool for scholars. The catalogue’s 330 illustrations will delight every reader.

Ritual and Mythology of the Chinese Triads: Creating an Identity
E.J. Brill; Leiden, The Netherlands; 1998; 9004110631; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; As New; 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
The extensive ritual and mythological lore of the Chinese Triads form the scope of this new paperback in Brill’s Scholar’s List. In it the reader will find a critical evaluation of the extant sources together with a true wealth of context. The core of the book is formed by a close reading of the initiation ritual, including the burning of incense, the altar, the enactment of a journey of life and death, and the blood covenant. Different narrative structures are also presented. These include the messianic demonological paradigm, political legitimation, and the foundation of myth. Triad lore is placed in its own religious and cultural context, allowing radically new conclusions about its origins, meanings and functions. This book is of special interest to social historians, anthropologists, and students of Chinese religious culture. 'Barend J. ter Haar's latest book is a breathtaking work of scholarship, charting new directions in the study of Chinese secret societies by grounding them in a sophisticated understanding of local popular and religious culture. If it is hardly the last word on this complex topic, no future work on secret societies, sectarian religion, or popular movements can afford to ignore this volume.'

Art of War
Kaveri Book Service; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8174791140; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The art of war, as generally considered, consists of five purely military branches,-viz.: Strategy, Grand Tactics, Logistics, Engineering, and Tactics. A sixth and essential branch, hitherto unrecognized, might be termed Diplomacy in its relation to War. Although this branch is more naturally and intimately connected with the profession of a statesman than with that of a soldier, it cannot be denied that, if it be useless to a subordinate general, it is indispensable to every general commanding an army: it enters into all the combinations which may lead to a war, and has a connection with the various operations to be undertaken in this war; and, in this view, it should have a place in a work like this. The present work has been translated from the French and translators have endeavored to render their author into plain English, without mutilating or adding to his ideas, attempting no display and making no criticisms. Contents: Preface; 1. Relation of Diplomacy to War; 2. Military Policy; 3. Definition of Strategy and the Fundamental Principle of War; 4. Grand Tactics and Battles; 5. Several Mixed Operations: which are Character Partly Strategical and Partly Tactical; 6. Logistics: or, the Practical Art of Moving Armies; 7. Formation of Troops for battle, and the Separate Combined Use of the Three Arms; Conclusion. Appendices. Index.Printed Pages: 384. 104211

Great Short Stories of the World, 3 Vols
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2006; 8186787135; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 22 Cm 
The present collection marks an attempt to bring together outstanding examples of the Short Story as it has been practised by writers of almost every race, from the earliest days of civilization down to the present century. Its purpose is not to show, by a series of texts chosen on academic grounds, how the form developed, but to bring together the best examples of every form by which men have endeavoured to entertain and instruct their fellows. No art is more spontaneous than that of the short story, also it is certain that stories of some sort were told as soon as man became articulate. The period covered in the present collection embraces nearly five thousand years, but there can be no reasonable doubt that the Egyptian tales that open the volume, the first of their kind known to us, are the finished products of an art that was practised thousands of years before these were written. And since the beginning of civilization as we know it, there has been no break in the tradition of tale-telling: the demand for stories is as strong and insatiable in man today as it was before he discovered How To make stone weapons. The editors of this collection have approached their task of selection with open minds: they have not allowed themselves to be influenced by any theory of what a short story should be, except that which requires that it be interesting of its kind. So, without confining themselves to any theory of classification, the editors have chosen a wide variety of stories designed to appeal to the general reader and perhaps to the student as well, in the belief that what has delighted the Indians and Chinese from time immemorial, the ancient Egyptians, the Jewish shepherds and warriors of Biblical times, the Greeks of Homer's days and the Romans of Caesar's, will appeal with equal force to the inhabitants of the civilized world of today. These stories were written not for critics and historians, editors of anthologies and specialists, but for all mankind. They have tried to bear in mind that the Short Story is a "tale which holdeth Children from play and old men from the chimney corner. Printed Pages: 1120. 100274

Advancing Global Education is the second in a series of volumes that explores prospects for human development—how development appears to be unfolding globally and locally, how we would like it to evolve, and how better to assure that we move it in desired directions. The first volume addressed the reduction of global poverty. Questions that this volume addresses include: # How rapidly are education enrollments and adult attainment levels advancing around the world? # Which countries will hit the goal of universal primary education by 2015 and, for those that miss, when might they reach it? # How rapidly can countries realistically expect to reach the next big goal of universal lower secondary education? # What are the financial costs of accelerating progress in enrollment and attainment, and do expected benefits ultimately exceed those costs? 033994

Representations of Finite and Compact Groups
Universities Press; Hyderabad, India; 2009; 0821848518; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Barry Simon, I.B.M. Professor of Mathematics and Theoretical Physics at the California Institute of Technology, is the author of several books, including such classics as Methods of Mathematical Physics (with M. Reed) and Functional Integration and Quantum Physics. This new book, based on courses given at Princeton, Caltech, ETH-Zurich, and other universities, is an introductory textbook on representation theory. According to the author, "Two facets distinguish my approach. First, this book is relatively elementary, and second, while the bulk of the books on the subject is written from the point of view of an algebraist or a geometer, this book is written with an analytical flavor". The exposition in the book centers around the study of representation of certain concrete classes of groups, including permutation groups and compact semisimple Lie groups. It culminates in the complete proof of the Weyl character formula for representations of compact Lie groups and the Frobenius formula for characters of permutation groups. Extremely well tailored both for a one-year course in representation theory and for independent study, this book is an excellent introduction to the subject which, according to the author, is unique in having "so much innate beauty so close to the surface".

3993 Basu Rai
Basu Rai from the streets of Kathmandu
Vitasta Publishing Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789382711407; Softcover; New; 
A little boy climbs down the stairs and runs out of his house. Most little ones do that. But this little boy has no one to stop him. He does not have a name. He only has the memory of a story his father has told him over and over again, from the time he was just six months old until his dying day, when the child was about four years old. It is the story of his father's love affair with his mother and betrayal.From the streets of Kathmandu, this is the story of a child who names himself Basu Rai, and who travels the corridors of the world, takes part in the Global March against child labour and arrive finally in the country he identifies as his own—India.Though Basu has found his country, his quest for family is not over. His search for identity begins with his book which maps the step by step progress of a reticent toddler from a welltodo family through being a violent street child and a child labourer returning from the jaws of death several times, to his fights to go to school, being school captain and finally at 26, with the telling of his story in a book.This is an inspirational story which tells about nurturing by a father. It is also a story that tells us here was a case for nurturing by the state, which was completely missing. It, instead, points to the loopholes in the systems in place, the social welfare systems, the education systems and the family systems that the subcontinent so boasts about but in reality, does not exist. It directs us to the vacuum children are often forced to grow up in. To get an enlightened and educated young citizen from nothing is nothing short of a miracle. 107218

On the Typology of Negation in Ob-Ugric and Samoyedic Languages
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2011; 9525667294; New; 
Negation has been the subject of several studies by Uralic linguists, but to this date there has been no investigation that would include the summary of negative constructions in one or several Uralic languages. This study attempts to present the negative constructions of some Uralic languages that are relatively closely related, namely, those of the Ob-Ugric and the Samoyedic languages. The following negative sentence types are described in detail: standard negation, prohibitive sentences, the negation of existential and possessive sentences and the negation of structures with a non-verbal predicate.
