5015 Calvin Malone; Foreword By Steven C. Rockefeller
Razor-Wire Dharma: A Buddhist Life in Prison
Wisdom Publications; Boston, USA; 2009; 0861715632; First Edition; Paperback; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Calvin Malone has plenty to teach us all about ideas that we rarely associate with the penal system: Dignity. Compassion. Freedom behind bars. He speaks from experience: Malone is nearing the end of a 20-year prison sentence himself. Razor-Wire Dharma is his eloquent, enlightening, and utterly inspiring personal story how he found Buddhism-and real, transformative meaning for his life-despite being in one of the world's harshest environments. Some of his stories are hilarious, some are harrowing, but all express Buddhist wisdom as vividly as any practitioner could hope to do. Malone is living it, and in the unlikeliest of places. For him, the choice of staying true to his principles often requires that he quite literally jeopardize his life, safety, and the few small comforts available to him to try to do what's right. Razor-Wire Dharma makes it clear that if Calvin can do what's right in jail, he can do it anywhere. What's more, it proves that we can, too. Printed Pages: 248. 028079

The Reserve Bank of India: 3 Vols.
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 8175962984; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
The Reserve Bank of India – Volume 1 (1935-1951), Volume 2 (1951-1967), Volume 3 (1967-1981): The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) was set up in 1935, under private ownership. Its charter was to maintain the monetary stability of India. In 1949, it was nationalized. The RBI manages India’s monetary and exchange rate policies, and the borrowings of the central and state governments. Regulation of commercial banking is another key responsibility. The first volume was printed in 1970 and covers the first sixteen years of the Bank’s working, 1935-51. The sixteen years can be divided into three distinct sub-periods – 1935-39 (the Formative Years), 1939-45 (the War Years) and 1945-51 (the Post-War Years). The second volume, printed in 1998, details the Bank’s role in mobilizing resources for central and state governments, regulating the banking system, and establishing an institutional infrastructure for agricultural and long-term industrial credit in India. It also covers developments in India’s external sector and concludes with an elaborate survey of evolving relations between the central bank and central and state governments in India. The third volume covers a period that saw major changes in India’s financial infrastructure. The nationalization of fourteen banks in July 1969 was the defining economic event of not just the 1960s but the next three decades. The period also saw the domination of fiscal over monetary policy, the breakdown of the Bretton Woods System and the emergence of a new international financial order characterized by floating instead of fixed exchange rates.

The Reserve Bank of India: Volume 3
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 8175962992; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
The Reserve Bank of India was set up in 1935, under private ownership. Its charter was to maintain the monetary stability of India. In 1949, it was nationalized. The RBI monitors India’s monetary and exchange rate policies, and the borrowings of the central and state governments. Regulation of commercial banking is another key responsibility. This volume narrates in detail how the RBI coped with the changes that it was required to manage. It is a fascinating story of how policy was actually made during a very trying period in the country’s history. The chapters dealing with the management of the external sector are especially revealing since not much has been written about that aspect so far.

India: Science and Technology, Volume 2
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2013; 9789382264743; Softcover; New; 
In the modern globalized world the economic development of a country is premised on its ability to develop adapt and harness its potential to innovate. Most of the governments in developing and emerging economies including India are proactive in initiating policies that would promote a culture of innovation. India: Science & Technology Volume 2 intends to identify the nature and extent of innovative activities in the country and the lacunae in the innovation support mechanism. It also suggests suitable S&T interventions in the policy matrix in order that India could come to the forefront in innovation activities. The book discusses following themes: • S&T and Human Resources • Innovation Support System • S&T and Industry • S&T Outputs and Patents • Rural Development and S&T Strategies While the content and approach of these themes differs innovation occupies the centre stage in each of these themes. Salient features • Analysis of scenario of S&T education in India • Analysis of organizational arrangement for promotion of technological innovation • Facets of innovation activities in the realm of manufacturing and service sector • Nature of innovation activities in MSME sector • Intensity of knowledge creation and utilization • S&T strategy for poverty alleviation • S&T strategies for agri/farm-based livelihoods • S&T strategies for non-farm/rural industrial development.Printed Pages: 600. 101506

India: Science and Technology, Volume 3
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789384463045; Soft Cover; New; 
Policy-makers often come across the question of how progress and investment in science technology and innovation (STI) can increase employment and upgrade skills and knowledge base in India. The paradox is that while STI has the potential to invent new avenues of economic growth sometimes even with increasing returns the general forces unleashed by STI displace labour and automate a large part of human skills and knowledge. Such a paradox has a great impact on a country like India which is struggling with the ever-increasing pressure of labour force unemployment and economic inequality. It is to be noted that the 12th Five Year Plan has made inclusive growth concomitant of employment generation and skill development a top priority. In this context India: Science and Technology Volume 3 focuses on the state of affairs in India through the lens of employment generation upgradation of skills and several dimensions of the Indian science technology and innovation (STI). Similar to the earlier reports the book is organised into four themes: (a) S&T Human Resources (b) S&T and Industry (c) S&T Outputs and (d) Rural India: S&T for Skills and Employment. While the content and approach of the four themes differ from each other employment and skill development and its inter-linkage with science technology and innovation are the important focal points of discussion.Printed Pages: 600. 101507

5031 Capt. W.F. O'Connor
Folk Tales From Tibet
Pilgrims Books Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2004; 817769202X; First Edition; Paperback; New; New; 5.5 x 8.5 Inches 
Folk Tales from Tibet is a collection of some of the most exquisite stories from Tibet recorded by Captain W F O'Connor. These tales were collected during his tenure as secretary and interpreter with the Lhasa Mission of 1904. They were compiled at a time when the western world know little or nothing about this mystical and exotic country. Hidden high up in the trans-Himalayan Plateau, Tibet separates two of the most ancient cultures, namely China and India. Both have played a big part in its development. The introduction of Buddhism from India changed the life styles and beliefs of the Tibetan people and helped them to develop into a highly conscious Buddhist society. Still its Bon Po origins and traditions are evident in the Buddhist way of life. This is clearly reflected in the psyche of the Tibetan Peoples. It is also perceptible whilst reading these stories. Carefully selected, these tales give a complete picture of the life and styles of the Tibetan peoples of the times. Like all folk tales they are very representative of the cultures that they attempt to portray. Even though most of the tales according to the author fine their origins in both India and China, they have been moulded by time to be representative of the Tibetan culture as well. With the addition of some Tibetan love songs and poetry this volume provides excellent reading for all. Printed Pages: 176. 002350

5037 Carl Brockelmann, translated by Joel Carmichael and Moshe Perimann
History of the Islamic Peoples
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1995; 8121506948; First Indian Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
This history covers the time from pre-Islamic Arabia to 1939 and the whole stretch of Islamic settlement from Morocco in the West to China in the East, and from the Mongols in the North to the Islamized tribes of Central Africa. In covering so large a subject it is no small feat to have produced a work which can be wholeheartedly recommended to Islam. The author has seen clearly the salient points in the long story of the spread and development of Islam, and has woven his account around these points in a way that lets the reader see a clear picture of each epoch in advance. In its historical sense, its mastery of the results and clarity of presentation, it is infinitely superior to any of the more recent attempts. The author has always endeavoured, and has very generally succeeded, in giving an impartial judgment on points where the opinions of scholars differ sharply. Printed Pages: 600 with 8 maps. 019801

5049 Carl W. Ernst
Following Muhammad: Rethinking Islam in the Contemporary World
Yoda Press; New Delhi, India; 8190227297; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Making a radical departure from the recently proliferating publications on Islam—journalist exposés on terrorist intrigues and solemn expositions on the clash of civilizations - renowned Islamicist Carl Ernst offers in this book a sympathetic yet reasoned and analytical view of the Islamic religious tradition and the contemporary issues that Muslims face. He introduces the reader to the profound spiritual and intellectual resources of Islam while clarifying debate and highlighting diversity within the tradition. Writing from within the framework of religious studies and the historical context he describes how Protestant definitions of religion and anti-Muslim prejudice have affected views of Islam in Europe and America. He also discusses the contemporary importance of Islam in both its traditional settings and its new locations and provides a context for understanding extremist movements like fundamentalism. Ernst concludes with an overview of critical debates on important contemporary issues such as gender and veiling, state politics, and science and religion. Revealing the human face of Islam, this timely and important volume aims at stimulating conversation between Muslims and non-Muslims in a world that they have commonly inherited. Contents Preface 1. Islam in the Eyes of the West 2. Approaching Islam in Terms of Religion 3. The Sacred Sources of Islam 4. Ethics and Life in the World 5. Spirituality in Practice 6. Postscript: Reimagining Islam in the Twenty-first Century Notes Suggested Further Reading Index. Printed Pages: 270. 027097

Sufism: An Introduction to the Mystical Tradition of Islam
Shambhala Publication/TBI; New Delhi, India; 2011; 1590308840; Softcover; New; 
The Sufis are as diverse as the countries in which they've flourished—from Morocco to India to China—and as varied as their distinctive forms of art, music, poetry, and dance. They are said to represent the mystical heart of Islam, yet the term Sufism is notoriously difficult to define, as it means different things to different people both within and outside the tradition. With that fact in mind, Carl Ernst explores the broadest range of Sufi philosophies and practices to provide one of the most complete and comprehensive introductions to Sufism available in English. He traces the history of the movement from the earliest days of Islam to the present day, along the way examining its relationship to the larger world of Islam and its encounters with both fundamentalism and secularism in the modern world.

The Powerful Ephemeral: Everyday Healing in an Ambiguously Islamic Place
Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8178243466; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The violent partitioning of British India along religious lines and ongoing communalist aggression have compelled Indian citizens to contend with the notion that an exclusive, fixed religious identity is fundamental to selfhood. Even so, Muslim saint shrines known as dargahs attract a religiously diverse range of pilgrims. In this accessible and groundbreaking ethnography, Carla Bellamy traces the long-term healing processes of Muslim and Hindu devotees of a complex of dargahs in northwestern India. Drawing on pilgrims’ narratives, ritual and everyday practices, archival documents, and popular publications in Hindi and Urdu, Bellamy considers questions about the nature of religion in general and Indian religion in particular. Grounded in stories from individual lives and experiences, The Powerful Ephemeral offers not only a humane, highly readable portrait of dargah culture, but also new insight into notions of selfhood and religious difference in contemporary India.

Italialainen teoreettinen fyysikko Carlo Rovelli maalaa levein vedoin modernin fysiikan maailmankuvan erityisesti niille, jotka ”tietävät vähän tai eivät mitään modernista tieteestä”. Seitsemän lyhyttä luentoa fysiikasta johdattaa fysiikan ratkaisemattomiin arvoituksiin ja yrityksiin selvittää niitä. Se kiidättää lukijan halki suhteellisuusteorian ja kvanttimekaniikan maustettuina hyvin valituilla vertauksilla sekä tarinoiden päähenkilöiden lyhyillä esiintymisillä. Valistuneellekin lukijalle on yhtä ja toista palkitsevaa, kuten mustan aukon lämpösäteily, jossa voi piillä ratkaisu siihen, miksi ajalla on suunta. Printed Pages: 95. 114341

The Phonology of Tone and Intonation
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2004; 0521012007; First Edition; Paperback; New; 228 x 152 Mm 
Tone and Intonation are two types of pitch variation, which are used by speakers of all languages in order to give shape to utterances. More specifically, tone encodes segments and morphemes, and intonation gives utterances a further discoursal meaning that is independent of the meanings of the words themselves. In this comprehensive survey, Carlos Gussenhoven provides an up-to-date overview of research into tone and intonation, discussing why speakers vary their pitch, what pitch variations mean, and how they are integrated into our grammars. He also explains why intonation in part appears to be universally understood, while at other times it is language-specific and can lead to misunderstandings. After eight chapters on general topics relating to pitch modulation, the book’s central arguments are illustrated with comprehensive phonological descriptions - partly in Optimality Theory - of the tonal and intonational systems of six languages, including Japanese, Dutch, and English. • Includes comprehensive and detailed analyses of the tonal and intonational systems of six languages • Presents an overview of the development of phonological theory since 1988, including Optimality Theoretic treatments • Presents a phsysiologically based theory of universal (paralinguistic) meaning of pitch variation Contents 1. Pitch in humans and machines; 2. Pitch in language I: stress and intonation; 3. Pitch in language II: tone; 4. Intonation and language; 5. Paralinguistics: three biological codes; 6. Downtrends; 7.

Elephanta: The Cave of Shiva
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1999; 8120812840; Hardcover; New; New; 
Three descriptive essays and numerous fascinating photographs, taken especially for this volume, allow the reader to experience a major monument of Indian art: the sixth century temple cave on Elephanta Island, in Bombay harbor, and its extra Ordinary stone sculptures. The authors and the photographer capture the atmosphere of the cave and the spirit of the sculptures, which portray the relentless energy and paradoxical power of Shiva, greatest of all Hindu gods. The photographs are particularly successful in revealing the dramatic alternation of light and dark that is so much a part of the beauty of the cave`s interior. Ms. Berkson`s trained and loving eye picks out the subtleties of the main sculptures and humorous details that the visitor might miss even on the site. In the text Wendy O`Flaherty interprets the myths of Shiva depicted in the sculpture; Ms. berkson`s essay supplies historical background and a stylistic analysis; and George Michell examines the overall structure of the cave to show that it is a mandala-like image of the heavenly mountain residence of Shiva and even of the structure of the universe itself.

Forms of the Goddess Lajja Gauri in Indian Art
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1996; 8120813111; Hardcover; New; New; 
The artists creating images of Lajja Gauri drew on various ancient symbols of fortune, fertility, and life-force to communicate her power through their rich heritage of meanings. Because there are no texts to explain the figure, the study proceeds from the basis of the objects to derive their meaning. Carol Bolon charts the changes in the goddess`s form over a period of more than four centuries, including its possible adoption from tribal worship into Hindu temples, and brings a new appreciation of Lajja Gauri`s rich symbolic meaning and cultural context.Printed Pages: 176. 102501

A Buddhist Manual of Psychological Ethics (Buddhist Psychology) of the Fourth Century BC: being a translation, now made for the first time, from the Original Pali of the First Book in the Abhidhamma-Pitaka
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8121507170; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
This volume is a translation from original Pali into English of Dhamma-Sangani, the first book of the seven books of the Ahidhamma-Pitaka. The Dhamma-Sangani is an important text of the Theravadin School of Buddhism and deals with the enumeration of the psychic and mental properties, i.e., the elements and objects of consciousness and constitutes an important work from the point of view of psychological ethics. It is a Buddhist manual of psychological ethics and provides an 'enumeration of the Dhammas', i.e., an inquiry into the mental elements or processes. It is a compendium of the terms and concepts in vogue among the Buddhists and the Import and meaning of which have been made clear for those striving to attain the Buddhist ideal of Arahat-ship. The book is divided into three main sections containing the Genesis of Thoughts, Form and the Division Entitled 'Elimination'. The learned author has not simply rendered a literal translation of this difficult text but has added copious notes to the text and has also tried to connect the Manual with the rest of the Buddhist Pitakas. In her Introductory Essay, she has discussed with great erudition, the relevant portions regarding the historical traditions, the commentaries on the subject, Buddhist psychological ethics and the fundamental concepts such as those relating to mind, and theory of intellection, and Buddhist notions of good, bad and indeterminate. A glossary of Pali words and a general index have enhanced the value of the book. Printed Pages:488. 039762

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1978; 8170690889; Reprint; Hardbound; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
Mrs. Rhys Davids, A Manual of Buddhism delves deep into the Pali Pitakas and Sanskrit Sutras of Buddhism, removes the huge mask of arid theology accumulated during the passage of that religion through different periods, different tongues and different races of men, and presents, in its pristine purity, the original message of the Buddha, who so extended the concepts of "way" and "Dharma" in the Upanishads, as to suit all men who "eddy about here and there, striving blindly, achieving nothing." He showed a way, which steered clear of the two extremes of self-indulgence and severe austerities; which was not an adage of worldly wisdom and prudence, no better than Aristotle's "the middle character is in all cases to be praised"; which gave equal emphasis to all the joys and opportunities of life; which involved "a long steep journey through sunk gorges, over mountain in snow"; which became clear as one progressed; which required Dhamma as its only guide, which was one of advance to a clear goal; which was no less adventurous than the one pursued by the prince in Kusa Jataka to win back his lost soulmate. His original teaching is so simple and direct that it is irresistible, which is the reason why Buddhism has survived as a world-religion to this day. Mrs. Rhys Davids' clarity of thought and diction, in combination with her deep erudition, have contributed in making this manual unique. Printed Pages: 360. 022582

Sakya or Buddhist Origins
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2017; 8121513146; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Sakya or Buddhist Origins by Mrs. Rhys Davids is as relevant today as it was in 1928, the year of its first publication. Time has added to its value. The remarkable progress in the realm of Science has not abated man's yearning for the call of the quest. As the title implies, its aim is to unravel the genuine message of Gotama, the Buddha, from the accretions in the Pali scriptures, by adopting the techniques of archaeologist. It is divided into two parts. Part one treats of "the discovery", the reconstruction, the rehabilitation of that which, at its birth, was a new and true word from very man to very man, true always and everywhere." Part two tells how this gospel came to be dressed "to suit a monastic set of ideals." An appendix dealing with Pali Pitakas is added. Over the years, in spite of a large number of books, the horizons of knowledge about Buddhism have remained stationary. This book takes a further step in widening that knowledge and thus provides an impetus for further research. Printed Pages: 452. 002673
