5202 C.V. Rangaswami
Administration Under the Early Western Chalukyas
Sharada Publishing House; Delhi, India; 2015; 9789383221080; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The book presents a comprehensive and critical study of the Early Chalukyan administration, nature of state and sovereignty of kings and social life and shows primarily how they developed the political traditions of their predecessors, the Kadambas, covering a period of study from the middle of the sixth century CE to the last quarter of the eighth century CE. The area covered by it is the territory in southern India which extended from Gujarat in the north to Banavasi in the south, and the coastal region in the west to the eastern frontier of the Pallava dominions in the east, with the off-shoots of their dynasty in Vengi and Gujarat. A comprehensive and critical study of the Early Chalukyan administration here is made on the basis of original sources, published and unpublished epigraphical records from Lata, Andhra, Satara, Pune, Konkana and Vidarbha, foreign writings like that of Tabari and Hiuen-Tsang, Indian literary works on administration and polity, and works of modern scholars-foreign and Indian, relating to the original sources, and also the various aspects of the history of the Chalukyas.Apart from a sectional treatment of the Chalukyas in Indian history volumes, such an attempt to describe the administration and social life in minute details has not been made so far. I hope this volume will fill the gap to a large extent.Printed Pages: 376 with 40 b/w illustrations. 102720

5207 C.V.B. Subrahmanyam
Lectures on Astrology Delivered in India and Abroad
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2003; Softcover; New; 
The book is a collection of talks, which Dr. Subrahmanyam gave from time to time in India, abroad and over the radio. It easily falls into clearly definable parts: there is the stimulating philosophical part where the author shares his rich thinking with his readers and listeners. There are some most useful predictive hints and finally the explanation of the zodiac as the nerve centres and planets as the rhythm of life cosmos and music itself. It is an excellent book and will be a great hit with those who have a desire to go deep into the secrets of jyotisha. The thinking about Jyotisha must lead one into spirituality, which is very pleasing as it is here. The predictive hints, particularly about the meaning of differing value of points denoted by different points in astakavarga is very revealing and shows some lesser known and very useful points for day to day predictions. In some places he had dropped some hints without revealing much like the where Venus is behind Sun, he times marriage according to the difference between them to time the event of marriage. In using transits, the hints he gives are rich material for statistical research, like the transit of Rahu over the eighth lord causing illness and accident.Printed Pages: 425. 102631

The Vedic Map of the Universe
New Bharatiya Book Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2002; 8187418400; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This Book contains the Vedic blueprint of God, Cosmos, creation of Universes, our Universe-its worlds and inhabitants-all reduced to finite terms of time and distance, shown in maps, with our Planet Earth as the reference point. The Vedic literature of India definitely and firmly expounds that God, who created the tangible worlds with their inhabitants, is super tangible and he and his creation can be readily perceived by the proper use of the senses of A Human being. Many startling scientific facts of today like the preservation of embryos and cloning can be seen to have occurred a eons ago in The Plan of God's creation as already recorded by the Vedic literature long agoThis book contains answers to man kind's many age-old queries: Who is God? What is the Cosmos? Are there multiple universes or only one? Who are the trinity? Is man alone in the universe or are there other worlds and inhabitants in our universe? What happens after death? Is there rebirth? What is the path of liberation? Is there a Doomsday? This book contains answers to man kind's many age-old queries: Who is God? What is the Cosmos?

The Masters and The Path
Bharatiya Kala Prakashan; Delhi, India; 2010; 8180902498; Hardcover; New; New; 
It speaks of many things which have hitherto been studied and discussed within a comparatively small circle, consisting of students well versed in theosophical knowledge and ready to study statements concerning regions which they could not yet enter for themselves, but hoped to enter later and then to verify for themselves the statements made by their seniors. The rapid changes in the world of thought, arising from the nearness of the coming of the world teacher, render useful some information as to a part of the world in which he lives, information which may, perhaps, to some extent prepare the public mind for his teachings.

5212 C.W. Pasley with an Introduction By Lawrence Hurst
Practical Architecture
Donhead Publishing Ltd; Dorset, UK; 2001; 1873394470; Reprint; Hard Cover; Brand New; Brand New; 14.5 Cms x 22.5 Cms 
Pasley’s work was first written in 1826 as a course of architecture for his students at the Royal Engineer’s School in Chatham. The original title of the book, Outline of a Course of Practical Architecture is therefore a little misleading to the modern reader as the course was primarily concerned with building construction, concentrating on all aspects of brickwork. Major General Sir C.W. Pasley, K.C.B wanted his students to be in a position to construct, maintain and extend all different types of ordinary brick buildings such as barracks, hospitals and store-houses. But whilst his interest was primarily military structures, the construction techniques were also equally applicable to civil buildings. This book, therefore, provides interesting and useful information on how buildings were being constructed a hundred and fifty years ago, and the type of limes and cements that were used. In addition to the material on mortars and cements, it examines in detail the bonds in brickwork and provides full coverage of different types of arches and how they are formed. It also explains the specific aspects relating to the construction of hollow or double walls; copings; chimneys and chimney breasts; gateways; brick ornamentation and so on. Practical Architecture will be of interest to architects, surveyors and structural engineers and all those involved in the repair and conservation of brick structures.

5216 Caleb Scharf
Kopernikuskompleksi
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 9525985326; New; 
Nikolaus Kopernikus siirsi maapallon ja samalla ihmisen pois maailmankaikkeuden keskipisteestä viisisataa vuotta sitten. Siitä lähtien olemme ajatelleet asuvamme tavallista tähteä kiertävällä tavallisella planeetalla, ilman erityisasemaa maailmankaikkeudessa. Caleb Scharf karistaa harteiltaan luutuneet oletukset ja hakee uudenlaista vastausta ihmiskunnan suurimpaan mysteeriin: Olemmeko yksin, vai voiko muualla maailmankaikkeudessa olla elämää? Onko sattumaa, että olemme olemassa juuri tässä maailmassa ja juuri tässä ajassa? Printed Pages: 286. 114336

5232 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

Historiska sägner om 1808-09 års Krig
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2008; 9515831873; New; 
De historiska sägner som här återges och analyseras upptecknades cirka hundra år efter 1808–09 års krig, vid sekelskiftet 1900, och återspeglar därmed också sin tids värderingar och berättartradition. Sägnerna handlar om hur större historiska händelser påverkade människorna på den egna hemorten och historien knyts ofta till konkreta platser i det lokala landskapet. Berättelserna handlar t.ex. om flykten undan ryssarna, om hunger, köld och andra vedermödor som drabbade både lokalbefolkningen och soldaterna på båda sidor. Printed Pages: 236. 115070

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

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

Moneen suuntaan kurkottavassa teoksessa Schmitt tarkastelee poliittisen käsitettä muun muassa suhteessa etiikkaan, talouteen ja tekniikkaan ulottaen tarkastelunsa valtio-opin, oikeusteorian sekä filosofian ohessa myös käsitehistorian ja teologian piiriin.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Index of Catalan Folktales (Folklore Fellows Communications 294)
Suomalainen Tiedeakatemia (Academia Scientiarum Fennica)/Bookstore Tiedekirja; Helsinki, Finland; 2008; 9514110145; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Catalan language is spoken over a large area covering some 70 000 km2 divided among four states (Andorra, Spain, France and Italy), with a total population of 13.5 million inhabitants. Catalan culture has a large body of literature dating from the medieval period to the present day as well as a rich and extensive tradition of folklore studies beginning in 1853 and continuing without interruption ever since. Catalan folktales were ignored by the Types of the Folktale until the second edition (1961), which included only references to the collection published by Joan Amades (1950). The present Index of Catalan Folktales brings together the work of some seventy collectors working along 150 years and for the first time gives a faithful and complete image of the Catalan contribution to the world’s folklore heritage.

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.
