Religion and Anthropology: A Critical Introduction
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2006; 0521617790; First Edition; Paperback; Brand New; 228 x 152 Mm 
This important textbook provides a critical introduction to the social anthropology of religion, focusing on more recent classical ethnographies. Comprehensive, free of scholastic jargon, engaging, and comparative in approach, it covers all the major religious traditions that have been studied concretely by anthropologists - Shamanism, Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism, Christianity and its relation to African and Melanesian religions and contemporary Neopaganism. Eschewing a thematic approach and treating religion as a social institution and not simply as an ideology or symbolic system, the book follows the dual heritage of social anthropology in combining an interpretative understanding and sociological analysis. The book will appeal to all students of anthropology, whether established scholars or initiates to the discipline, as well as to students of the social sciences and religious studies, and for all those interested in comparative religion. • Emphasizes religion as a social institution, rather than merely an ideological or symbolic system • Clear, jargon-free language • Studies a broad range of religions, including Shamanism, Buddhism, Islam, Christianity, Hinduism, African religions, and contemporary Neo-Paganism Contents Preface; Introduction; 1. Shamanism; 2. Buddhism and spirit cults; 3. Islam and popular religion; 4. Hinduism and new religious movements; 5. Christianity and religion in Africa; 6. African American religion; 7. Religions in Melanesia; 8. Neopaganism and the New Age movement. Printed Pages: 360. 018603

Rather than participate and innovate in the marketplace, generating goods and services that benefit society, people are increasingly vying for political advantage to live at the expense of others.In this influential book, Tracy reminds us that our greatness is based on honesty, integrity and fair dealing. Tracy proves that this something for nothing attitude has never been the way of the world and helps readers set a personal and culture-wide agenda for change.Printed Pages: 264. 105570

Implementation of RTI Act 2005 in Armed Forces and Its Implications
Vij Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789382652144; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book is written with the aim of understanding the intrinsic features of the Act and its impact on the functioning of Armed Forces. The attempt of the author is to outline importance of the Right to Information Act 2005 which is empowering ordinary citizens to procure information from public authorities.Armed Forces have not been included in the second schedule of RTI Act which exempts few organisations from the purview of RTI Act 2005; hence RTI Act is also equally applicable to all three services of the Armed Forces being Central Government Organisations.The author has aptly covered nuances of the RTI Act and its implications for the Armed Forces. He has meticulously covered various illustrations and case studies supported with number of decisions of the Central Information Commission and its application to Armed Forces. These supplements have made the book reading more interesting and can act as a reference in future.Printed Pages: 110. 103310

Vij Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789382652038; Hardcover; New; New; 
Today, the vicious battles fought between 4 Kumaon and Pak Army in Kashmir in 1965, are almost a forgotten saga of great chivalry by soldiers of both sides. In this book, these actions have been recounted in detail, including examples of incredible bravery displayed by the combatants. It was indeed traumatic for the troops when areas that had been captured by the unit in Bugina Bulge (POK), after incredible sufferings and heavy casualties, were returned to Pakistan. Our troops withdrew to the areas where they are located today. The heart-breaking orders to withdraw were dutifully followed despite our genuine claims to the captured areas. Similar withdrawals were also conducted in strategic areas of Hajipir Pass and Kargil Heights.Today, terrorists regularly infiltrate from Pakistan to India from these areas.Printed Pages: 178. 103266

Beyond Bin Laden: Global Terrorism Scenarios
Vij Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2011; 9789380177991; Hardcover; New; New; 
The elimination of Osama Bin Laden was a remarkable success for American intelligence and Special Forces. To track down a rebel leader who had cut himself off from communications with the World and operated from an isolated compound in an affluent locality where none would really suspect his presence requires diligence, patience and perseverance of the highest order. The raid by US Special Operations Forces was also unique. Launched after careful preparation, using stealth helicopters, the deadly strike force known as the Seals swooped down on the target and in half an hour plus succeeded in achieving the mission and getting away, before local forces had even stirred.Will the World be a better place without Osama or will it sink to the doom that he had predicted continues to be a dilemma? There are many prognostications, some represent plain hope, others are borne out of historical experience while some spring from disparaging cynicism which see the ebb and flow of terrorism either receding or expanding as the years go on.This Book is an attempt to work through this maze of uncertainty by examining key vectors related to the rise and fall of Osama Bin Laden and the Al Qaeda to envisage four possible scenarios ranging from the collapse of the state order [seen as unlikely] to containment of terror threat [equally challenged] in three dimensions globally, regionally and locally over the next decade or so.Printed Pages: 204. 103303

Integrated Force Projection by India
Vij Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2011; 9789380177427; Hardcover; New; New;

It emphasizes, without wandering on the fringes of any blustering rhetoric or puffery, that the proverbial ‘synergy’ is, in fact, ab elemental imperative for force projection and therefore merits greater integration of defence forces with various ministries for an effective, frictionless and well modulated Force Projection System for the country.Printed Pages: 178. 103275

Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw: The Man and His Times
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789383098309; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book is the definitive biography of one of the former chiefs of the Indian Army, Sam Hormusji Framji Jamshedji Manekshaw. Also called Sam Bahadur, he served with the British Indian Army in World War II and led the Indian Army to victory several times against Pakistan in the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971 that led to the liberation of Bangladesh in December 1971. It reveals how he grew up in Punjab and and schooled at Sherwood College (Nainital), taking up the entrance examination for the Indian Army in rebellion against his father's refusal to let him study medicine at London. His career, which lasted four decades, from the British era and World War II, to the three wars against Pakistan and China after India's independence in 1947, reveals the stern disciplinarian for what he was and shows how he had an acumen for planning and administration. He also planned the strike at Jammu & Kashmir in 1947–48. The Padma Bhushan awardee helped the country through many battles, and this book tries to bring him to light so that readers can learn how he has helped our country. 037878

Indian Economic Life: Past and Present
Low Price Publications/D.K. Publishers Distributors Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 8175360607; Hardcover; New; New; 
It is a well-known fact that the ills of the present owe themselves to the past.Why is it that small countries, popularly known as the Newly Industrialised countries, NICS for short, have been able to make enormous economic progress while India has not been able to commensurate with its material, man-power and intellectual resources? The answer must be found in the economic development of the country in the immediate past. This work of a renowned professor of economics helps the economic historian and the economist of today to get at that answer.The book traces the historical evolution from Mughal times of the condition, quality and standard of life as determined by incomes of the working people beginning with the ordinary labourer and artisan. It discusses the level and character of trade including maritime trade. It shows how famine and epidemic were not more frequent in the 16th and 17th centuries as in the 20th.Coming to the '20s of this century, the author discusses prices, currency, system, the rate of exchange, population, agriculture, industry and transport, and finally, banking and finance including India's taxable capacity of the time.Thoroughgoing and meticulous theoretical and empirical considerations and concerns inform this scholarly work.

A basic book for all those interested in the material life of the Country and the countrymen. It focuses attention on the whole gamut of our economic problems and suggests solutions.Economic Reforms Demand a variety of changes, innovations and Organization adequate emphasis should be given to the infra-structure areas imports, steel, Metal and power generation. On them defend the Industrial growth and Employment potential. In the fiscal year about to end, which has, according to the media, ushered in a glorious era of economic rejuvenation, both Agricultural and industrial production have lagged behind the previous year's output, unemployment has increased by few millions and Inflation has reached unprecedented heights. The growth in the sector of power generation has been much lower compared even to that of other developing Countries in the world. In the absence of adequate power supply, not more than 40 per cent of the installed capacity of our industry could be used. Consider the fact that we are hardly near 200 kwtt per capita as compared to more than 1,000 kwtt per capita for even some of the developing countries and about 7,000 kwtt in the developed world. The book discusses the whole gamut of our economic problems and suggests Means to overcome them. As such it is a basic book for all those interested in the material life of the country and the countrymen.Printed Pages: 196. 105762

Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2003; 0521822459; First Edition; Hard Cover; Brand New; Brand New; 18.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
As the first class-based societies in human history, early civilizations are of great importance to social scientists interested in the development of human complexity. This book offers the first detailed comparative study of the seven most fully documented early civilizations: ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia, Shang China, the Aztecs and their neighbors, the Classic Maya, the Inka, and the Yoruba. Unlike previous studies, equal attention is paid to similarities and differences in their sociopolitical organization, their economic systems, and their religious beliefs, knowledge, art, and values. Many of this study’s findings are surprising and provocative. They challenge not only current understandings of early civilizations but also the theoretical foundations of modern archaeology and anthropology. Rival cultural and ecological approaches are demonstrated to be complementary to one another, while a comprehensive understanding of human behavior is shown to require that more attention be paid to the neurosciences. Contents Introduction: 1. Rationalism and relativism; 2. Comparative studies; 3. Defining ‘early civilization’; 4. Evidence and interpretation; Sociopolitical Organization: 5. Kingship; 6. States: city and territorial; 7. Urbanism; 8. Class systems and social mobility; 9. Family organization and gender roles; 10. Administration; 11. Law; 12. Military organization; 13.

Phonetically Based Phonology
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2004; 0521825784; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 228 x 152 Mm 
Phonetically based phonology is centered around the hypothesis that phonologies of languages are determined by phonetic principles; that is, phonetic patterns involving ease of articulation and perception are expressed linguistically as grammatical constraints. This book brings together a team of scholars to provide a wide-ranging study of phonetically-based phonology. It investigates the role of phonetics in many phonological phenomena - such as assimilation, vowel reduction, vowel harmony, syllable weight, contour line distribution, metathesis, lenition, sonority sequencing, and the Obligatory Contour Principle (OCP) - exploring in particular the phonetic bases of phonological markedness in these key areas. The analyses also illustrate several analytical strategies whereby phonological sound patterns can be related to their phonological underpinnings. Each chapter includes a tutorial discussion of the phonetics on which the phonological discussion is based. Diverse and comprehensive in its coverage, Phonetically-based Phonology will be welcomed by all linguists interested in the relationship between phonetics and phonological theory. • Applies the approach of phonetically-based phonology to a broad range of phonological phenomena • Includes a long introduction which places the material in the context of the general theoretical issues faced by researchers in this area • Each chapter includes a special background section covering the phonetics that is needed in order to understand the related phonology Contents 1. Introduction: the phonetic basis of phonological markedness Bruce Hayes and Donca Steriade; 2. Perceptual cue robustness and phonotactic constraints: rethinking sonority Richard Wright; 3. A perception-based analysis of place assimilation Jongho Jun; 4. Rounding harmony Abigail Kaun; 5. The evolution of metathesis Juliette Blevins and Andrew Garrett; 6. The role of contrast-specific and language-specific phonetics in contour tone Jie Zhang; 7. Vowel reduction Katherine M. Crosswhite; 8. Contrast and perceptual distinctiveness Edward Flemming; 9.

Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0195676319; Second Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
This revised and updated edition brings together the poetry of three contemporary Indian poets--Nissim Ezekiel, A K Ramanujan, and Dom Moraes. Often considered the pioneers of modern Indi an poetry in English, they played significant roles in creating a cultural space for postcolonial Indian English-language verse. Three Indian Poets is an introduction to their lives and poetry, including the characteristics and development of each author's work. It examines their major concerns as well as the themes, preoccupations, traits, and evolution of their poetry. A brief biographical sketch of each poet is followed by a close literary analysis of his entire body of work and discussion of technique and individual poetic porcess. Included in this volume are three additional chapters (one on Ramanujan's Black Hen and two on Moraes' final four volumes), as well as updated biographical and bibliographical information. This study will be invaluable to students of Indian, Commonwealth, and postcolonial literature as well as the general reader with an interest in poetry. Printed Pages: 229. 016075

4493 Bruce Newman
A Beginner's Guide to Tibetan Buddhism: Notes from a Practitioner's Journey
Snow Lion Publications; Boston, USA; 2004; 1559392118; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 16 Cms x 24 Cms 
As Tibetan Buddhism extends its reach in the West, many practitioners are making strong commitments to this path. The Vajrayana tradition still being new to our culture, however, there remain significant gaps in Western students' education and understanding. These can lead to practical difficulties for new or intermediate students. This book begins with the very awakening of students' interest in spirituality and their initial encounter with Tibetan Buddhism, and then leads them through the steps necessary for successful practice in the West. A Beginner's Guide to Tibetan Buddhism speaks powerfully and directly to the Western student who is working to integrate this incredibly vast tradition into the realities of daily life. Drawing on his many years of practice and teaching, the author skillfully addresses obstacles, doubts and confusions that every reader will recognize. "Bruce Newman has been my close student for almost thirty years. I am confident that he will be able to share his insights with others and help them on the Buddhist Path."— Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche, Tibetan Buddhist teacher and meditation master. "Lama Bruce Newman, my old dharma friend, writes openly and honestly about his love for Buddhism and what the path of dharma has brought to his life as a Westerner. This book is an enjoyable, practical read which will inspire interested seekers and encourage them to bring out their best."— Sangye Khandro, translator of Tibetan Buddhism, Light of Berotsana Translation Group "Bruce, your friendly Dharma Pal, takes the beginner by the hand to walk through the intricacies of the path, making complex ideas and terminology plain and simple. A solid, down-to-earth book."— Erik Schmidt, Rangjung Yeshe Publications Bruce Newman has studied and practiced Tibetan Buddhism, mostly in the Kagyu and Nyingma traditions, for almost thirty years. He spent eleven years in India and Nepal studying under his primary teacher, Venerable Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche. Mr. Newman also completed a four-year retreat at Kagyu Samye Ling in Scotland. For the past ten years, he has been practicing and teaching under the guidance of Venerable Gyatrul Rinpoche in Ashland, Oregon. "Bruce Newman, a long-time student of Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche, relays his own experiences with finding a teacher and establishing a practice front and center in A Beginner's Guide to Tibetan Buddhism: Notes from a Practicioner's Journey. Written by a Westerner for Westerners, this how-to overview contains everything from charts explaining the different schools and lineages of Tibetan Buddhism to explicit advice on discipline, guru devotion, and pitfalls like "emotional enthrallment" (detailed in an absorbing chapter called "Getting it Wrong)."-- Joan Duncan Oliver, Tricycle Magazine, The Buddhist Review Printed Pages: 230. 009791

4494 Bruce Rich
To Uphold the World: The Message of Ashoka and Kautilya for the 21st Century
Penguin/Viking; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0670999466; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
At the beginning of the twenty-first century, we cannot escape the turbocharged global economy we live in. Yet the very forces that link all of us have accelerated the dissolution of traditional sources of social authority and historical identity, spurring increasingly violent counter movements. We realize traditional national politics and the reorganization of all social values around markets cannot hold together the six and a half billion inhabitants of this small planet—the world needs a new global order based on a common global ethic and global justice. To Uphold the World is Bruce Rich's deeply illuminating and thought-provoking exploration of such an alternative. His search to found a civil and international order on principles that transcend the goals of pure economic efficiency and amoral realpolitik is inspired by the writings and lives of two of the greatest figures of ancient India—Ashoka and Kautilya. Ashoka provides a unique example of a world ruler—his empire at the time was arguably the world's largest, richest and most powerful multi-ethnic state—who tried to put into practice a secular state ethic of non-violence and reverence for life, which he also extended to international relations. Kautilya, one of history's greatest political geniuses, wrote the world's first treatise on political economy, the Arthasastra, which proclaims accumulation of material riches as the chief underpinning of human society. Both addressed the questions of political realism and idealism, the role of force and violence in international relations, and the tension between economics and ethics. Through the retelling of mythical and historical accounts, Bruce Rich distils the message of Ashoka and Kautilya to help us uphold our world in the twenty-first century. A unique blend of historical and political narrative combined with reflections on contemporary society, the international environment and human rights, To Uphold the World is particularly timely, because it puts forth a truly original perspective and thinking on our responses to the political, economic and ethical challenges of globalization. 'The reader is drawn powerfully into a long-gone world in which an extraordinary human being dramatically changed his own life and the world around him . . . A highly readable book on the importance and reach of some arguments in ancient India, and on their relevance for global problems today.'—From the Foreword by Amartya Sen. 'To Uphold the World should serve as a source of great inspiration . . . It is my hope and prayer that readers today may be inspired by this tale of a powerful ruler to find ways to contribute to making the world . . . a more just and peaceful place.' —From the Afterword by His Holiness the Dalai Lama Printed Pages: 344. 028850

In this follow-up to the bestselling It's Okay to Be the Boss, Bruce Tulgan shows that the number one factor in employee productivity, work-quality, morale and retention is the relationship between employees and their immediate managers. Unfortunately, he argues, we have been focusing so much on the skills and habits of the managers, that we have neglected the role of the employee in these relationships.Printed Pages: 208. 104696

The Buddhist Dead: Practices, Disources, Representations
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8120834240; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
In its teachings, practices, and institutions, Buddhism in its varied Asian forms has been-and continues to be-centrally concerned with death and the dead. Yet surprisingly "death in Buddhism" has received little sustained scholarly attention. The Buddhist Dead offers the first comparative investigation of this topic across the major Buddhist cultures of India, Sri Lanka, China, Japan, Tibet, and Burma. Its individual essays, representing a range of methods, shed light on a rich array of traditional Buddhist practices for the dead and dying; the sophisticated but often paradoxical discourses about death ad the dead in Buddhist texts; and the varied representations of the dead and the afterlife found in Buddhist funerary art and popular literature. The paradigmatic figure of the historical buddha, his death, the symbolism of his funeral, and his relationship to the impurity of the dead are treated in the opening essays by John S. Strong and Gregory Schopen. The deaths of later remarkable adepts, following the Buddha's model, and their significance for Buddhist communities are investigated by Koichi Shinohara, Jacqueline I. Stone, Raoul Birnbaum, and Kurtis R. Schaeffer. A dramatic, often controversial category of exemplary death, that of "giving up the body" or Buddhist suicide, is examined by James Benn and D. Max Moerman. Moving from celebrated masters to ordinary practitioners and devotees, Bryan J. Cuevas, John Clifford Holt, and Matthew T. Kapstein take up the subject of the "ordinary dead" and the intimate relations that often persist between them and those still living, while Hank Glassman, Mark Rowe, and Jason A. Carbine shed light on Buddhist funerary practices and address the physical and social locations of the Buddhist dead.Printed Pages: 401. 102341
