Sri Satguru Publications; Delhi, India; 1990; 8170302447; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New;

Uses consistent translation of Sanskrit terms such as artha (purpose) and visaya (condition), whereas prior translations have often given more than one translation for the same Sanskrit word. Selectively retains technical vocabulary in the original, thus challenging the reader to expand his or her linguistic horizons by assimilating Sanskrit terms such as purusa, prakrti, guna, and dharma. A Sanskrit word index and Bibliography of prior translations are included.Printed Pages: 141. 101114

18th Century English Furniture: The Normal Adams Collection
Antique Collectors Club; Suffolk, UK; 1851492186; First Edition; Hard Cover; Very Good; Very Good; 8 1/2" x 11" 
But it is far from being just a series of fine photographs for it concentrates principally on the British mahogany furniture of the eighteenth century, a period when British design and craftsmanship reached its pinnacle, a fact amply verified by the sustained demand for these fine pieces. Yet it is a period which curiously enough has, apart from some specialist work, been largely neglected by serious writers on the subject for many years. The book contains some 475 black and white and 56 colour photographs. The illustration of so many fine pieces, as well as unusual items, superbly photographed, would in itself have earned this book a place on the shelves of anyone seriously interested in the subject. But there is an added bonus. A firm like Norman Adams prospers by the skill of the selection in buying – a ‘good eye’ – and it is this essential facility, succinctly expressed in the captions to the pieces in this book, which will ensure its lasting reputation as an important work of reference.

Essentials of UMTS (Cambridge Wireless Essentials Series)
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2010; 052118732X; First Edition; Paperback; New; 150 x 230 Mm 
The third generation (3G) cellular system UMTS is advanced, optimised and complex. The many existing books on UMTS attempt to explain all the intricacies of the system and as a result are large and equally complex. This book takes a different approach and explains UMTS in a concise, clear and readily understandable style. Written by a professional technical trainer, and based on training courses delivered on UMTS to telecommunication companies worldwide, Essentials of UMTS will enable you to grasp the key concepts quickly. It assumes no previous knowledge of mobile telecommunication theory, and is structured around the operation of the system, clearly setting out how the different components interact with each other, and how the system as a whole behaves. Engineers, project managers and marketing executives working for equipment manufacturers and network operators will find this concise guide to UMTS invaluable. Contents Preface 1. Introduction to mobile telecommunications 2. Introduction to UMTS 3. Radio transmission and reception 4. Operational procedures 5. Services and their implementation 6.

Now fully updated to reflect recent advances, this introduction provides a broad, but concise, coverage of recombinant DNA techniques. Written for advanced undergraduates, graduates and scientists who want to use this technology, emphasis is placed on the concepts underlying particular types of cloning vectors to aid understanding and to enable readers to devise suitable strategies for novel experimental situations. An introduction to the basic biochemical principles is presented first. Then PCR and cloning using E. coli hosts and plasmid, phage and hybrid vectors are described, followed by the generation and screening of libraries and how to modify, inactivate or express cloned sequences. Finally genetic manipulation in a range of other organisms is discussed, including other bacteria, fungi, algae and plants, insects and mammals. A series of 'real-life' biological problems are also presented to enable readers to assess their understanding of the material and to prepare for exams. • Covers a broad range of host organisms, from E. coli to mammals • Focuses on the underlying principles thereby equipping the reader to devise appropriate strategies for novel situations and for use in their own research • Contains example scenarios, which allow the reader to test their understanding of the material and apply it to ‘real-life’ research situations Contents Preface; 1.

5413 Christopher I. Lehrich
The Occult Mind: Magic in Theory and Practice
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2009; First Indian Edition; Paperback; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
Divination, like many critical modes, involves reading signs, and magic, more generally, can be seen as a kind of criticism that takes the universe—seen and unseen, known and unknowable—as its text. In The Occult Mind, Christopher I. Lehrich explores the history of magic in Western thought, suggesting a bold new understanding of the claims made about the power of various belief systems. In closely interlinked essays on such disparate topics as ley lines, the Tarot, the Corpus Hermeticum, writing and ritual in magical practice, and early attempts to decipher Egyptian hieroglyphics, Lehrich treats magic and its parts as an intellectual object that requires interpretive zeal on the part of readers/observers. Drawing illuminating parallels between the practice of magic and more recent interpretive systems—structuralism, deconstruction, semiotics—Lehrich deftly suggests that the specter of magic haunts all such attempts to grasp the character of knowledge. Offering a radical new approach to the nature and value of occult thought, Lehrich's brilliantly conceived and executed book posits magic as a mode of theory that is intrinsically subversive of normative conceptions of reason and truth. In elucidating the deep parallels between occult thought and academic discourse, Lehrich demonstrates that sixteenth-century occult philosophy often touched on issues that have become central to philosophical discourse only in the past fifty years.

Allegory and Illusion: Early Portrait Photography from South Asia
Mapin Publishing; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8189995820; Softcover; New; 
The extraordinary range of photography from South Asia dates back to the official birth of the medium—in the mid-19th century. One of the first exhibitions of its kind in North America, ‘Allegory & Illusion’ offers an intimate survey of vintage images from the modern nations of India, Sri Lanka, Burma, and Nepal. Together, they established a unique regional history of photography through both foreign and local practitioners. The photographs, drawn exclusively from the private collection of Mr. E. Alkazi, Chairman, Alkazi Foundation for the Arts, have been curated to explore the linked fields of portraiture, figuration, and inter-visual communication.This volume, produced in conjunction with the exhibition, presents the works of some of the leading photographers and studios of the time, namely Felice Beato, Bourne & Shepherd, Johnston & Hoffmann, Gobind Ram & Oodey Ram, Darogah Abbas Ali, Raja Deen Dayal and Shapur Bhedwar. The three lead essays, together with photographer biographies and techniques, present varied perspectives on photography’s development of a unique vernacular culture. Ethnography, identity, integration, and assimilation are therefore some of the key notions that underlie practices of portraiture and domesticating space—reordering how an image may be perceived in our digital present.

An A to Z Guide to Holistic Healing
Jaico Publishing House; Delhi, India; 817992856X; Softcover; New; 
From Asthma to Varicose Veins an outline of the reasons why ‘dis-ease’ occurred in the first place, various ways you can take charge and improve your health, including complementary treatments recommended to help the body and the mind in the healing process.Why does one person get sick whilst another exposed to exactly the same virus, germ or bug stay perfectly well? Our body is a mirror of our mind and soul, and by discovering the emotional, mental and spiritual causes of a disease as well as the physical ones, we have more resources to actually heal our bodies instead of merely treating the symptoms. Whilst recognising that allopathic medicine has its place, this useful book enables the reader to take charge of their own health and well-being thanks to a comprehensive listing and description of the complementary treatments available for specific conditions.Pills and surgery do not always cure the underlying problem and can create new symptoms and side effects. Complementary therapies ranging from homeopathy, aromatherapy, Bach flower remedies, osteopathy, energy healing, hypnotherapy and many more can help where allopathic methods fail or bring only partial results, because they take a more holistic view of the whole person that you are.Printed Pages: 204. 105407

Seeing Lhasa: British Depictions of the Tibetan Capital, 1936-1947
Serindia Publications; Chicago, USA; 2003; 1932476040; First Edition; Paperback; Brand New; 22 x 28 Cm 
During the 1930s and 1940s the British cultivated close political and social relations with members of the Tibetan elite and established a Mission in the Tibetan capital, Lhasa. Based on the Pitt Rivers Museum exhibition of the same name, Seeing Lhasa reveals the way in which the city of Lhasa, its palaces, monasteries and mansions, became the backdrop for a social world in which the British and Tibetans interacted. They ate and drank, watched films and played football together and these activities were photographed, painted and filmed as part of the British diplomatic agenda. This book demonstrates the aesthetic accomplishments of British visitors to Tibet and documents aspects of Tibetan life no longer visible in the city vacated by the Dalai Lama in 1959. It features photographic portraits of many notable Tibetan figures, including members of the Tibetan religious and governmental hierarchies, alongside a unique set of watercolours by the Indian artist Kanwal Krishna, who accompanied the British party to witness the Installation of the 14th Dalai Lama in Lhasa in 1940. This is the first in-depth study of the way in which such images construct a sense of place and determine how future generations may see Lhasa. The visual record is contextualised with essays by Clare Harris, Tsering Shakya and Elizabeth Edwards. Full details of all the Tibetan photographic collections at the Pitt Rivers Museum are also included. Printed Pages: 176 with over 150 colour and b/w illustrations. 021241

It also narrates the story of the settlement by people from South India and Sri Lanka, and their later conversion to Islam. The second half of the book is an anthropological perspective of life as it was in the mid-1970s, with chapters on society, politics, religion and the economy.The change due to international influence in recent decades, especially in the capital Male, has been so vertiginous that many Maldivians are keen to understand what life was in their parents' time, when population was one-third of what it is today, the traditional fishing and lethargic cultural ethos that prevailed, and before modern education and international contacts had such an impact.Printed Pages: 488. 101767

Dalit Women: Honour and Patriarchy in South India
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2017; 9789383166183; Softcover; New; 
One of the only ethnographic studies of Dalit women, this book gives a rich account of individual Dalit women’s lives and documents a rise in patriarchy in the community. The author argues that as Dalits’ economic and political position improves, ‘honour’ becomes crucial to social status. One of the ways Dalits accrue honour is by altering patterns of women’s work, education and marriage and by adopting dominant caste gender practices. But Dalits are not simply becoming more like the upper catstes; they are simultaneously asserting a distinct, politicised Dalit identity, formed in direct opposition to the dominant castes. They are developing their own ‘politics of culture’.Key to both, the author argues, is the ‘respectability’ of women. This has significant effects on gender equality in the Dalit community.

The Dalai Lama: A Biography
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2001; 0195656504; Paperback; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
Claude Levenson's search for Tenzin Gyatso, the present Dalai Lama, took her across the Himalayas, from Lhasa to his headquarters-in-exile in Dharamsala. At Dharamsala, hours of personal interviews revealed the story of his prodigious life-of how a lively child from a modest peasant family came to be recognized as the fourteenth reincarnation of the Buddha of Infinite Compassion. The book offers a vivid portrayal of an important civilization based on a sophisticated Buddhist tradition which faces extinction in Tibet. It covers the Dalai Lama's political programme of the Middle Ways which allows for a limited autonomy for Tibet. The preface brings the story up to the present day, focusing on the increase in human rights abuses in Tibet. Printed Pages: 320. 012299

Medical Interpreting and Cross-cultural Communication
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2004; 0521830265; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 228 x 152 Mm 
When healthcare providers and patients do not speak the same language, medical interpreters are called in to help. In this book - the first ever ethnographic study of a bilingual hospital - Claudia Angelelli explores the role of medical interpreters, drawing on data from over 300 medical encounters and interviewing the interpreters themselves about the people for whom they interpret, their challenges, and how they characterize their role. Traditionally the interpreter has been viewed as a language conduit, with little power over the medical encounter or the relationship between patient and provider. This book presents an alternative view, considering the interpreter’s agency and contextualizing the practice within an institution that is part of a larger society. Bringing together literature from social theory, social psychology, and linguistic anthropology, this book will be welcomed by anyone who wants to discover the intricacies of medical interpreting first-hand; particularly researchers, communication specialists, policy makers, and practitioners. • The first ever ethnographic study of a bilingual hospital • Includes data from over 300 medical encounters • Includes Spanish and English translations of interviews on medical interpreting Contents 1. Questioning invisibility; 2. Communication in a medical encounter; 3. A different set of lenses; 4. California hope: a public hospital in changing times; 5. Putting it all together; 6.

The Bejewelled Buddha: From India to Burma. New Considerations
Sanctum Books; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8190995006; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 19 x 25 Cm 
This book represents a comprehensive study of 'The Bejewelled Buddha' considering stylistic as well as iconographic issues. A crucial moment in the Buddha's life seems to have been referred to through this image, namely, the sojourn on Mount Meru, where the Buddha sat on Indra's seat and taught all the gods. By occupying the seat of the king of the gods he was able to endorse the royal function of this deity; this becomes particularly evident in the late fifth century, and probably reflects the dramatic situation that the Buddhist community was confronted with, i.e. the political power essentially fostering the Hindu religion and social structure. Hence, the Buddha is depicted as a perfect and powerful ruler sitting at the top of the universe and showing himself adorned as a king; more than any human ruler, the Buddha rules over the universe. There is also another dimension that should never be neglected - as in any other Indian cult, worship of his image entailed offerings of various kinds, such as flower garlands or jewels, being made to the Buddha. The image of the Bejewelled Buddha thus included various constituents while at the same time it was used as the locus where different religious or political concepts found a way of expression. The result was the creation of an image of multi-layered significance which found its way into all Asian cultures. Printed Pages: 206 with numerous b/w illustrations. 033982

Hira Mandi
IndiaInk/Roli Books; New Delhi, India; 8186939547; Softcover; New; 
Very few French writers have ventured to write on the social, religious, political and cultural issues of Pakistani society, but Claudine is an exception. She is one of those writers who not only made frequent visits to Pakistan but also watched some very sensitive prevailing issues from a close angle. Her fine sensibilities and eye for detail is a hallmark of her writing skills which also makes her an accomplished writer. In Hira Mandi her strong pen has beautifully succeeded in capturing the true identity of the society. Hira Mandi is a remarkable piece where Claudine has rolled out a tale that would make the readers spellbound. Hira Mandi sounds a forbidden subject for many who are familiar with the name as it is an area located in the walled city of Lahore which in its hey days was notoriously known as pleasure seekers' paradise but Claudine's expressions, portrayal of feelings and glaring social dichotomies are unparallel.

Birds of Paradise: Paradisaeidae
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 1998; 0198548532; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
`'The first comprehensive overview of this dramatic group of birds...' BBC Wildlife `'...an exhaustive summary of literally everything known about all 42 birds of paradise...I must also comment onf Frith and Beehler's organizational skill, from which any would-be author could learn. Masses of details are renedered digestible...Questions for future research are highlighted throughout, making this book another treasure trove for studnet sin search of PhD theseis topics.' Jared Diamond Nature `'...this book will stimulate interest in the habits and conservation of these magnificent birds and the paradise in which they live.'' World Birdwatch Birds of paradise have long played a central role in the mythologies, ceremonies, dress and dance of the peoples of New Guinea and its neighbouring islands. For the few centuries that these magnificent birds have been known outside of Australasia, their striking nuptial plumages and elaborate courtship rituals have captured the imagination of collectors, scientists, and naturalists throughout the world. The first part of the book provides a comprehensive and scientifically accurate overview of the biology, ecology, and history of the group, written so as to be interesting and accessible to the lay-reader as well as the scientist. The authors' intimate observations of the birds have enabled them to describe for the first time how the extravagant tails and plumage are used in courtship and mating as well as to describe their nesting biology, about which little has been written previously. The role of the birds of paradise in human culture and tradition is explored in chapter 7, and a final chapter discusses issues of conservation and threats to the survival of these unique and beautiful birds. The second part of the book consists of species accounts of the 42 species of birds of paradise, describing their plumage, size, habitat, distribution, and behaviour in detail and accompanied by distribution maps and sonograms. 12 superb colour plates by William T. Cooper, one of the world's most acclaimed bird artists, illustrate all the species, their known hybrids, and many juveniles and sub-species. His original fine line provide a vivid record of how the birds use their famous ornaments during reproductive behaviour. As with the other books in the Oxford Bird Families of the World series, the Birds of Paradise is written by authors who have dedicated much of their professional lives to researching the birds and observing them at first hand. It includes previously unpublished material and provides a synthesis of the huge literature that has been published over the last few years. As such it will be the most comprehensive review ever to be published on the birds of paradise, the most ornate and interesting group of birds on earth. Nothing comparable exists in print.

The Later Ghaznavids: Splendour and Decay. The Dynasty in Afghanistan and Northern India 1040-1186
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8121505771; First Indian Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
This book is a sequel to Prof. Bosworth's classic study of the origins and early history of the Ghaznavid Empire, The Ghaznavids, their empire in Afghanistan and eastern Iran 994-1040. It carries o the story of this originally Turkish dynasty, based on Ghazna in eastern Afghanistan, after its sultans had lost the western Iranian provinces of their empire to the incoming Turkish steppe nomads of the Oghuz tribe, whose leaders then formed the Great Seljuq state in the Middle East. The Ghaznavids survived, however, as a still-powerful empire, comprising eastern Afghanistan, the Panjab, Baluchistan and Sind, for almost a century and a half. Their court in Ghazna and then, at a later date, in Lahore, was a great centre for the beginnings and the development of what was to be the Indo-Muslim culture and literature, for it was from the Panjab at this time that the gradual process of the Islamisation of much of northwestern India began.

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 8121505739; Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
This book deals with the origins and early history of the dynasty of Turkish slave origin which in the first half of the eleventh century AD, became a mighty power controlling lands from western Persia to the Panjab and from what is now the northern Uzbekistan Republic to the shores of the Indian Ocean in Baluchistan and Sind. The book is based on the original Persian and Arabic sources for the period, and describes the process by which, from a Turkish steppe background, Sultan Mahmud of Ghazna and his son Mas'ud assembled by force of arms the most powerful empire known in the Islamic world since the disintegration of the Baghdad caliphate. Much of the Sultans' energy was devoted to the exploitation of India, with its rich temple treasures and reserves of slave manpower, and Mahmud in particular achieved a great contemporary reputation as a hammer of pagans and heretics, before the attacks of a new wave of Turkish invaders from Central Asia, the Ozhuz, overran the western provinces of their empire by 1040.

The Funniest Tales Of Mullah Nasruddin
Unicorn Books; New Delhi, India; 8178060493; Softcover; New; 
Mullah Nasruddin is undoubtedly the best-known trickster and wit in human history. In some tales, Mullah is the smart joker taking others for a ride. In other stories, he's the one who becomes a fool. In yet others, the joke swings both ways and one isn't exactly sure who has fooled whom! Many tales are awash with unabashed nonsense and unbridled humour where Nasruddin play the wise man, the fool, the victim or the prankster in turns! For centuries, Nasruddin has been amusing people throughout the world. Indeed, Mullah`s popularity was universally acknowledged when UNESCO declared 1996 as Nasruddin Hoja Year. His anecdotes are now being spun in modern avatars, with many tales of Mullah`s exploits in America and England. This book deals with his tales of yore. After every tale, the author has added a creative insight. No matter what Mullah Nasruddin is called - a wise fool or a foolish wise man- there`s no doubt he is the world`s most loved trickster.

Jataka Tales: Stories of moral conduct and good Behaviour
Unicorn Books; New Delhi, India; 8178060884; Softcover; New; 
Jataka Tales are often short narratives which tell the stories of the lives of the Buddha before he reached Enlightenment. When, in the process of meditating beneath the Bodhi Tree, the cure for life`s suffering was revealed to him. Before reaching his last life as the Prince Siddhartha Gautama, the Buddha lived 550 successive lives in which he behaved justly and generously, accumulating merit during each life, until finally reaching Enlightenment. In some of his lives he is born as human, while in others he is an animal, such as a deer a monkey or an elephant. The Buddha himself used the Jataka stories to explain concepts like karma and rebirth and to emphasise the importance of certain moral values. The story of each of these earlier lives, like a fable, is meant to convey the lessons of moral behaviour. Printed Pages: 95. 108172

Not a serpent Not a rope
Zen Publications/D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 9789384363956; Softcover; New; 
Enlightenment. What is it? Much has been written about it. Many have tried to describe it or show how to attain it. Does one get enlightenment from reading about how to get it? Or listening to a guru who is enlightened? Or spending years in solitude? Or contemplation? Or does it just come one day all by itself to the true seeker? Apparently in any or all of these ways. Or none of them. If the seeker gets hung up on the book, or the guru, or the practice, or the solitude then no enlightenment. That would be like travelling on a journey to a specific destination and then clinging to a beautiful signpost that points the way.One must desire enlightenment passionately and not desire it. One must search for it and remain unperturbed at not having got it.Enlightenment will come. In its time. Can the seeker wait? In patience? In silence? ‘Not a Serpent, Not a Rope’ is a collection of tales that emerge from the collective wisdom of this world. The Introduction in the beginning of the book suffices to explain why it was written. Printed Pages: 120. 111644

Employement of Special Forces: Challenges and Opportunities for the Future
Vij Books India Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 9789381411285; Hardcover; New; New; 
Special Forces and Special Operations offer an option for providing an asymmetric response across the entire spectrum of conflict. An asymmetric response does not automatically imply a physical attack; in most cases, direct action should be only the extreme response. Special Forces are meant to achieve strategic objectives through application of modest resources in a calibrated manner.With an eye on the future, a seminar was held at CENJOWS which was aimed at examining various alternatives for optimal employment of Indian SF, in pursuit of national security goals with a proactive mindset. Various aspects were covered by eminent speakers from India and other countries. This book is based on the seminar proceedings.Printed Pages: 196. 103277

5500 Col. G.S. Dhillon
From My Bones: Memoirs of Col. G.S. Dhillon of the Indian National Army (Including 1945 Red Fort Trial)
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 1998; 8173051488; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
A historian's perspective of an event differs from the more intimate subjective view of a participant in the event. In the present book, Col. Dhillon, who today is the only survivor of the historic Red Fort trial of 1945 records his experiences that contributed so signally to India's Independence. Col. Dhillon was one of the three accused of the famous INA trial that began on November 5, 1945 at Red Fort and was charged with "waging war against His Majesty the King-Emperor..." The trial marked a significant turning point in India's struggle for Independence and Col. Dhillon along with his two colleagues became symbol of India fighting for freedom. In the present volume, Col. Dhillon narrates his experiences of INA and the nostalgic memories of the trial. The story narrated in the book is not the history of INA. The narrative is of the events which concerned the author or were to his knowledge in connection with his duties and status in the movement. It is more like a historical account of his actions.
