5703 Chitralekha Zutshi
Languages of Belonging: Islam, Regional Identity, and the Making of Kashmir
Orient BlackSwan/Permanent Black; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8178243342; Softcover; New; 
Despite its centrality to the political life of India and Pakistan, Kashmir has met with rather perfunctory treatment from historians of South Asia. The few works of history and politics that have appeared on this region, moreover, insist on defining Kashmiri culture, history and identity in terms of the ahistorical concept of Kashmiriyat, or a uniquely Kashmiri cultural identity. This book, in contrast, questions the notion of any transcendent cultural uniqueness and Kashmiriyat by returning Kashmir to the mainstream of South Asian historiography. It examines the hundred-year impact of indirect colonial rule on Kashmir's class formation. It looks at the responses of Kashmir's society to social and economic restructuring. It studies the uses made of Kashmir's political elites by the state. It analyses the effect of Islamic discourse on Kashmir's political culture. It shows that while all these historical changes had a profound impact on the political culture of the Kashmir Valley, there is nothing either very inevitable or quite definite about the 'political regionalism' and 'Islamic particularism' of this area.

5705 Chitrarekha V. Kher
Buddhism as Presented by the Brahmanical Systems
Sri Satguru Publications; Delhi, India; 1992; 8170302935; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
The systems of Indian philosophy represent the attempts at a logical explanation of the problem of a reality and a reasoned interpretation of spiritual experiences. Traditionally, the systems are divided into the 'Astika darsanas', i.e. the orthodox systems and the 'Nastika darsanas', i.e. the Heterodox systems-Buddhism and Jainism. This division is founded on the acceptance or rejection of the Vedas as The Source of authority, not only in the worldly but also in the spiritual matters (srutipramanya). The six orthodox systems of Indian philosophy profess an allegiance in varying degress to the authority of the Vedas and thus display a profound regard for tradition, a positive outlook towards the world, the life and its manifold activities, these are some of the features shared in common by these systems which mark them out from Buddhism. Buddhism signified right from its origin a negative attitude in different field. In the beginning it stood against the sacrificial and ritualistic practices highly prevelant in the society at large, against the distinction among men based on four social classes. In philosophy, as presented by the Brahmanical systems there was first the denial of soul, as supported by the theory of universal flux which meant denial of any enduring thing. Buddhism denied causation as a real .Process. The six orthodox systems of Indian philosophy have waged a fierce and continuous intellectual warfare with the Buddhist. The present Book contains 19 chapters, which are-Buddhism as presented by Gotama in continued on next flap the Nyayasutra and Vatsyayana in the Nyayabhasya; Buddhism as presented by Udyotakara in the Nyayavarttika; Buddhism as presented by Vacaspati Misra in the Nyayavarttikatatparyatika; Buddhism as presented by Jayanta Bhatta in the Nyayamanjari; Buddhism as presented by Sridhara in the Nyayakandali; Buddhism as presented by Sabara in the Sabarabhasya; Buddhism as presented by Kumarila in the Slokavarttika; Buddhism as presented by Prabhakara in the Brhati; Buddhism as presented by Badrayana in the Brahmasutras; Buddhism as presented by Sankara in the Br.

Situating Tribals in Indian History
B.R. Publishing Corporation; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8176466913; Hardcover; New; New; 
There is a lot of controversy over situating the tribals in modern Indian History. According to the Latin root, the word tribal meant only a section of people with a distinct and autonomous culture of its own. In the Roman Empire, they were never regarded segregated from the mainstream. But in colonial India the tribals who held fast to their autonomous culture and would not conform to colonial requirements were considered wild and outside the pale of civilization and therefore liable to be subjugated. To the imperialist anthropologist, it was a virgin field of enquiry to discover the tribals as exclusivist people with unique features. They were to be treated as vanishing community. It was again a play of divide and rule against the mainstream society. The Present volume is a bouquet of 11 essays on various aspects of Tribal Society and culture under British Rule. CONTENTS: 1. Situating Tribals in Modern Indian History/Surendra Jha 2. The Khasis and the English 1783-90/Nikhiles Guha 3. Rani Gaidiliu/S.K. Hira 4. Preserving Forests : Encroachment on the Forest Rights of the Tribals of Santhal Parganas/Samar Kumar Mallick 5. The Socio-Economic Transition of Santhals in the South West Bengal/Arati Khan 6. Santhals and Healthcare/Chittabrata Palit 7. Tribal way of Curing Diseases/Sutapa Sengupta 8. Santhal Response to Health co-Operatives in Sriniketan/Keya Banerjee 9. Indigenous Education and the Tribals of Midnapore/Subrata Kumar Mal 10. Disintegration of Traditional Santhal Elites and the Rise of Santhal Bhadralok/Pradip Chattopadhyay 11. Understanding Santhal creativity/Dipankar Bagchi Printed Pages: 158. 110442

Social Ecology and Demographic Structure of Bhotias: Discources and Narratives
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2005; 8180692272; Hardcover; New; New; 
Generally it is considered that tribal communities inhabit the inhospitable, difficult and isolated areas. Unlike non-tribal communities, they have a direct and perfect symbiotic relationship with their environment. The overwhelming concentration of tribes in the hilly, rugged and peripheral areas of a country like India also proves that tribal way of life in difficult terrain and the inhospitable environment conditions have become synonymous. Their life is a saga of constant adjustment to such environment. The harsh and unpredictable environment throws ever-increasing challenges before the tribes, which they have responded to in adapting and adjusting to their environment through modification of their institutional, technological and biological attributes in a given environment. This book tries to interrogate the interrelations between the impacts of altitude and the demographic structure of the Bhotia tribal society in Kumaon Himalaya of Uttaranchal. This issue can be approached through various angles. However, the approach of social ecology is preferred over others, as it places equal emphasis on the attributes of environment and human response in an interdependent and interactive framework. The present book attempts to critically interpret the existing literature on the people adapted to high and low altitudes. Printed Pages: 240. 112429

Dzogchen Teachings
Snow Lion Publications; New York ,USA; 2006; 1559392436; First Edition; Paperback; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
This book is a rich collection of precious teachings given by the renowned Dzogchen master Chögyal Namkhai Norbu to his students around the world in order to benefit their understanding of the Dzogchen tradition and its value in the modern world. Dzogchen, or the path of Total Perfection, is the essence of Tibetan Buddhism; it is not a religion, tradition, or philosophy. As Chögyal Namkhai Norbu says, "Dzogchen is the path of self-liberation that enables one to discover one's true nature." Dzogchen is the reality of our true condition, not only the name of a teaching. Dzogchen is our own totally self-perfected state. In Dzogchen, the teacher gives you methods for discovering that true condition. Through these clear, concise explanations and instructions not available elsewhere, Namkhai Norbu makes these profound teachings accessible to everyone. All the chapters contain beneficial instructions for both beginning and advanced students, regardless of which tradition they may follow, and insights into the genuine meaning of important subjects related to Sutra Tantra and Dzogchen.

Rainbow Body: The Life and Realization of a Tibetan Yogin, Togden Ugyen Tendzin
North Atlantic Books/TBI; New Delhi, India; Softcover; New; 14 x 23 Cm 
"The Rainbow Body- The Life and Realization of a Tibetan Yogin, Togden Ugyen Tendzin, presents the remarkable life story of Togden (a title meaning "endowed with realization") Ugyen Tendzin (1888-1962) who, at the end of his life, attained the "rainbow body." Described as the release of the physical body to the essence of the five elements leaving no material body after death, the rainbow body has been achieved by advanced Tibetan masters in the Dzogchen tradition. It is believed that the rainbow body is an immaterial body, invisible to the physical eye, that continues to exists, actively working for the benefit of all sentient beings. Tendzin's nephew, author and Tibetan teacher, Ch gyal Namkhai Norbu, developed the book from extensive interviews with Tendzin and information received from one of his closest disciples. Written mainly in first person, as if Tendzin himself were retelling the events of his life, the book traces his childhood struggles and the circumstances which led him to his teacher Adzom Drugpa Drodul Pawo Dorje, one of the greatest Dzogchen masters of the last century. Describing the lessons and instructions Tendzin received from his master, the book ends. Printed Pages: 160. 117531

5721 Chogyal Namkhai Norbu & Adriano Clemente (Authors)
The Supreme Source: The Fundamental Tantra of Dzogchen Semde
Snow Lion/TBI; New Delhi, India; 1559391200; Softcover; New; 
The aim of Dzogchen is the reawakening of the individual to the primordial state of enlightenment, which is naturally found in all beings. The master introduces the student to his or her real nature already perfected and enlightened, but it is only by recognizing this nature and remaining in this state of recognition in all daily activities that the student becomes a real Dzogchen practitioner of the direct path of self-liberation. In this book the Dzogchen teaching is presented through the tantra Kunjed Gyalpo, or "The King Who Creates Everything"—a personification of the primordial state of enlightenment. This tantra is the fundamental scripture of the Semde, or "Nature of Mind," tradition of Dzogchen and is the most authoritative source for understanding the Dzogchen view. The commentary by Chogyal Namkhai Norbu gives easier insight into the depths of these teachings. Adriano Clemente translated the main selections of the original tantra. 112814

Dream Yoga and the Practice of Natural Light
Shambhala Publication/TBI; New Delhi, India; 1569570515; Softcover; New; 
In Dream Yoga and the Practice of Natural Light, Chögyal Namkhai Norbu gives instructions for developing clarity within the sleep and dream states. He goes beyond the practices of lucid dreaming that have been popularized in the West by presenting methods for guiding dream states that are part of a broader system for enhancing self-awareness called Dzogchen. In this tradition, the development of lucidity in the dream state is understood in the context of generating greater awareness for the ultimate purpose of attaining liberation. This revised and expanded edition includes additional material from a profound and personal Dzogchen book, which Chögyal Namkhai Norbu wrote over many years. This material deepens the first edition's emphasis on specific exercises to develop awareness within the dream and sleep states. Also included in this book is a text written by Mipham, the nineteenth-century master of Dzogchen, which offers additional insights into this extraordinary form of meditation and awareness.

The Sacred Path of the Warrior
Shambhala; Boston, USA; 1984; 0877732647; First Edition; Paperback; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
In this practical guide to enlightened living, Chögyam Trungpa offers an inspiring vision for our time, based on the figure of the sacred warrior. In ancient times, the warrior learned to master the challenges of life, both on and off the battlefield. He acquired a sense of personal freedom and power—not through violence or aggression, but through gentleness, courage, and self-knowledge. The Japanese samurai, the warrior-kings of Tibet, the knights of medieval Europe, and the warriors of the Native American tribes are a few examples of this universal tradition of wisdom. With this book the warrior's path is opened to contemporary men and women in search of self-mastery and greater fulfillment. Interpreting the warrior's journey in modern terms, Trungpa discusses such skills as synchronizing mind and body, overcoming habitual behaviors, relaxing within discipline, facing the world with openness and fearlessness, and finding the sacred dimension of everyday life. Above all, Trungpa shows that in discovering the basic goodness or human life, the warrior learns to radiate that goodness out into the world for the peace and sanity of others. The Shambhala teachings—named for a legendary Himalayan kingdom where prosperity and happiness reign—thus point to the potential for enlightened conduct that exists within every human being. "The basic wisdom of Shambhala," Trugpa writes, "is that in this world, as it is, we can find a good and meaningful human life that will also serve others. That is our true richness."

Crazy Wisdom
Shambhala; Boston, USA; 2001; 1570628947; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Chögyam Trungpa describes "crazy wisdom" as an innocent state of mind that has the quality of early morning—fresh, sparkling, and completely awake. This fascinating book examines the life of Padmasambhava—the revered Indian teacher who brought Buddhism to Tibet—to illustrate the principle of crazy wisdom. From this profound point of view, spiritual practice does not provide comfortable answers to pain or confusion. On the contrary, painful emotions can be appreciated as a challenging opportunity for new discovery. In particular, the author discusses meditation as a practical way to uncover one's own innate wisdom. Printed Pages: 216. 037538

There is a basic human wisdom that can help solve the world’s problems. It doesn’t belong to any one culture or region or religious tradition—though it can be found in many of them throughout history. It’s what Chögyam Trungpa called the sacred path of the warrior. The sacred warrior conquers the world not through violence or aggression, but through gentleness, courage, and self-knowledge. The warrior discovers the basic goodness of human life and radiates that goodness out into the world for the peace and sanity of others.

Illusion's Game: The Life and Teaching of Naropa
Shambhala Publication/TBI; New Delhi, India; 1994; 0877738572; Softcover; New; 
In what he calls a "200 percent potent" teaching, Chögyam Trungpa reveals how the spiritual path is a raw and rugged "unlearning" process that draws us away from the comfort of conventional expectations and conceptual attitudes toward a naked encounter with reality. The tantric paradigm for this process is the story of the Indian master Naropa (1016–1100), who is among the enlightened teachers of the Kagyu lineage of the Tibetan Buddhism. Naropa was the leading scholar at Nalanda, the Buddhist monastic university, when he embarked upon the lonely and arduous path to enlightenment. After a series of daunting trials, he was prepared to receive the direct transmission of the awakened state of mind from his guru, Tilopa. Teachings that he received, including those known as the six doctrines of Naropa, have been passed down in the lineages of Tibetan Buddhism for a millennium.Trungpa's commentary shows the relevance of Naropa's extraordinary journey for today's practitioners who seek to follow the spiritual path. Naropa's story makes it possible to delineate in very concrete terms the various levels of spiritual development that lead to the student's readiness to meet the teacher's mind. Trungpa thus opens to Western students of Buddhism the path of devotion and surrender to the guru as the embodiment and representative of reality. Printed Pages: 136. 111024

Glimpses of the Profound: Four Short Works
Shambhala Publication/TBI; New Delhi, India; 2016; 1611803039; Softcover; New; 
At the beginning of his North American teaching career, Chögyam Trungpa conducted five pivotal seminars on various dharmic topics. The teachings from these seminars—originally published as four separate volumes and including Q&A—are now available in this single volume:“ Glimpses of Mahayana,” on the discovery and characteristics of buddha nature “Glimpses of Shunyata,” on the central mahayana teaching of emptiness “Glimpses of Space,” on the inseparability of the vastness of the feminine principle and the dynamism of the masculine principle “Glimpses of Realization,” on the three bodies of enlightenment (dharmakaya, sambhogakaya, nirmanakaya) In these short, penetrating talks and lively exchanges with his early Western students, the Venerable Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche presents the essential teachings of Tibetan Buddhism in a direct and experiential way. The talks resonated intensely with his audiences when they were given, and they continue to inspire those who wish to look further into the profundity of human experience. This collection provides direct glimpses of the possibility of liberation, the opening of the human heart, and the awakening of one’s true potential. Printed Pages: 368. 112027

The Teacup and the Skullcup: Where Zen and Tantra Meet
Shambhala Publication/TBI; New Delhi, India; 1611802911; Softcover; New; 
The Teacup and the Skullcup is made up of edited transcripts from two seminars that Chögyam Trungpa gave near the beginning of his North American teaching career in 1974—one in Barnet, Vermont, and one in Boston—called “Zen and Tantra.” Although Trungpa Rinpoche belonged to the tantra tradition, he acknowledged the strength and discipline gained from Zen influence. Through these talks you can see his respect for the Zen tradition and how it led to his using certain Zen forms for his public meditation hall rituals. He discusses the differences in style, feeling, and emphasis that distinguish the two paths and shows what each one might learn from the other.Also included are Trungpa Rinpoche's commentary on the Ten Oxherding Pictures and an essay he composed in memory of Shunryu Suzuki Roshi, a close friend with whom he continually exchanged ideas for furthering buddhadharma in America.

Shambhala Publications/TBI; New Delhi, India; 1590307704; Softcover; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
The truth of life has never been better or more succinctly articulated than in the Buddha's teaching on suffering, its cause, and its cessation--the famous formulation known as the Four Noble Truths. This concise handful of words is in fact the foundation from which all subsequent Buddhist teachings grow, and upon which all of them rely. Their wisdom is as pertinent to the scholar of Buddhist philosophy as it is to the ordinary practitioner, as it is indeed to anyone, anywhere, who aspires to liberation. Ch gyam Trungpa's in-depth exploration of the Four Noble Truths reveals the subtlety and sophistication that lie beneath these deceptively simple teachings. He emphasizes their profound relevance not just as an inspiration when we set out on the path but at every other moment of our lives as well, showing how we can join view (intellectual understanding) of the teaching with practical application in order to interrupt suffering before it arises. His teaching is, as always, refreshingly direct and profoundly inspiring. The Truth of Suffering is an ideal introduction to the Four Noble Truths for the beginner as well as for the experienced practitioner in search of deeper understanding. Printed Pages: 155. 117533

The Tantric Path of Indestructible Wakefulness: The Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma, Volume Three
Shambhala; Boston, USA; 2013; 1590308042; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
The third volume of this landmark series presents the vajrayana teachings of the tantric path. The vajrayana, or “diamond vehicle,” also referred to as tantra, draws upon and extends the teachings of the hinayana and mahayana. As with the hinayana and the mahayana, the formal acceptance into the vajrayana is marked by a vow, in this case the samaya vow. There is an emphasis at this stage on the student-teacher relationship and on the quality of devotion. Generally, students must complete preliminary practices, called ngöndro, to prepare themselves for initiation into the vajrayana path before going further. Having done so, they then receive the appropriate empowerments to begin tantric practices. There are empowerment ceremonies of many kinds, called abhishekas. The vajrayana includes both form practices, such as visualizations and sadhanas (ritual liturgies), and formless practices based on allowing the mind to rest naturally in its inherent clarity and emptiness. Although on the surface, there is much greater complexity in tantric practices, the principles of mindfulness and awareness and the cultivation of compassion and skillful action continue to be of central importance. The tantric path requires complete engagement and fierce dedication. It is said to be a more rapid path, but it is also more dangerous. There is a quality of directness, abruptness, and wholeheartedness. Tantrikas, or vajrayana practitioners, recognize that the most challenging aspects of life, the energies and play of confused emotions and frightening obstacles, can be worked with as gateways to freedom and realization. Other topics covered in detail in this volume include the four reminders, the mandala principle, mahamudra, atiyoga, and more. The Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma represents meditation master Chögyam Trungpa’s greatest contribution to Western Buddhism. This three-volume collection presents in lively, relevant language the comprehensive teachings of the Tibetan Buddhist path of the hinayana, mahayana, and vajrayana. This work will resonate with new students of Buddhism as well as the most senior students. Printed Pages: 902. 037532

The Heart of the Buddha
Shambhala; Boston, USA; 1991; 0877735921; First Edition; Paperback; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
This compelling collection of essays, talks, and seminars by Chögyam Trungpa presents the basic teachings of Buddhism as they relate to everyday life. The book is divided into three parts. In "Personal Journey," the author discusses the qualities of openness, inquisitiveness, and good humor that characterize the enlightened Buddha-nature in everyone. In "Stages on the Path," he presents the three vehicles—Hinayana, Mahayana, and Vajrayana—that carry the Buddhist practitioner toward enlightenment. In "Working with Others," he describes the direct application of Buddhist teachings in such areas as relationships, children, and money. Chögyam Trungpa's great appreciation of Western culture combined with his deep understanding of the Tibetan tradition makes these teachings uniquely accessible to Western readers.

Illusion's Game: The Life and Teaching of Naropa
Shambhala; Boston, USA; 1994; 1-87773-857-2; First Edition; Paperback; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
In what he calls a "200 percent potent" teaching, Chögyam Trungpa reveals how the spiritual path is a raw and rugged "unlearning" process that draws us away from the comfort of conventional expectations and conceptual attitudes toward a naked encounter with reality. The tantric paradigm for this process is the story of the Indian master Naropa (1016-1100), who is among the enlightened teachers of the Kagyu lineage of the Tibetan Buddhism. Naropa was the leading scholar at Nalanda, the Buddhist monastic university, when he embarked upon the lonely and arduous path to enlightenment. After a series of daunting trials, he was prepared to receive the direct transmission of the awakened state of mind from his guru, Tilopa. Teachings that he received, including those known as the six doctrines of Naropa, have been passed down in the lineages of Tibetan Buddhism for a millennium. Trungpa's commentary shows the relevance of Naropa's extraordinary journey for today's practitioners who seek to follow the spiritual path. Naropa's story makes it possible to delineate in very concrete terms the various levels of spiritual development that lead to the student's readiness to meet the teacher's mind. Trungpa thus opens to Western students of Buddhism the path of devotion and surrender to the guru as the embodiment and representative of reality. Printed Pages: 192. 001678

Training the Mind and Cultivating Loving-Kindness
Shambhala; Boston, USA; 2004; 1569570248; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Warning: Using this book could be hazardous to your ego! The slogans it contains are designed to awaken the heart and cultivate love and kindness toward others. They are revolutionary in that practicing them fosters abandonment of personal territory in relating to others and in understanding the world as it is. The fifty-nine provocative slogans presented here - each with a commentary by the Tibetan meditation master Chogyam Trungpa - have been used by tibetan Buddhists for eight centuries, to help meditation students remember and focus on important principles and practices of mind training. They emphasize meeting the ordinary situations of life with intelligence and compassion under all circumstances. 038965

Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism
Shambhala; Boston, USA; 1999; 1569571090; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
walking the spiritual path properly is a very subtle process; it is not something to jump into naively. There are numerous sidetracks which lead to a distorted, ego-centered version of spirituality; we can deceive ourselves into thinking we are developing spiritually when instead we are strengthing our egocentricity through spiritual techniques. This fundamental distortion may be I referred to as spiritual materialism. ' The now classic Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism is the record of two series of lectures given by Trungpa Rinpoche in 1970-71. 'First discussed are the various ways in which people involve themselves in spiritual materialism, the many forms of self deception into which aspirants may fall. After this tour of the sidetracks along the way, the broad outlines of the true spiritual path are discussed. The approach presented is a classical Buddhist one-not in a formal sense, but in the sense of presenting the heart of the Buddhist approach to spirituality. Although the Buddhist way is not theistic, it does not contradict the theistic disciplines, Rather the differences between the ways are a matter of emphasis and method. The basic problems of spiritual materialism are common to all spiritual disciplines. ' Chogyam Trungpa-meditation master, scholar, and artist-was well-known throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe as a Buddhist teacher and founder and president of Vajradhatu, Naropa Institute, and Shambhala Training. Former abbot of the Surmang monasteries, he is also the author of The Myth of Freedom, Meditation in Action, and Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior. (all published by Shambhala). 037537

Hindu Nationalism and the Evolution of Contemporary Indian Security: Portents of Power
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 0198089554; Hardcover; Nrw; New; 
The tenure of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) regime (1998-2004), led by the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) saw India`s rise in international prominence, especially in terms of nuclear transparency, a tilt towards the US, regional pragmatism, and use of realpolitik. On all these accounts, the BJP regime often significantly contrasted to those of the Indian National Congress.The practices and ideas that the BJP espoused continue to impact upon India`s security policies today. One of the first few comparative analyses of the security policy of BJP, before, during, and after its leadership of the NDA government, this volume, part of the Oxford International Relations in South Asia series, evaluates the ideological origins and practices of BJP`s foreign policy, both inside and outside of government. Furthermore it highlights the multiple, composite, and competing norms influencing India`s foreign policy?and how these norms make it an absorptive, dynamic, and elastic entity. These norms are used to analyse the viewpoints of India`s political parties and her security community concerning the origins, core principles, and future course of Indian foreign policy. The primary market for this book will be departments of political science and international relations in different institutes and universities worldwide. Apart from institutions, this book will also be of interest to students and teachers of political science, international relations, and foreign policy; researchers; and the informed general reader (particularly in India and across South Asia).

Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8125062610; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
New South Asian Security recasts the interpretation of security and international relations in South Asia. Moving away from the traditional emphasis on India–Pakistan relations, this volume focuses on the region’s unique confluence of two of the international system’s rising great powers (China and India), and two of its failing and most unstable states (Pakistan and Afghanistan). It also acknowledges that South Asian security rests upon the interaction between these four important states.The volume also highlights the region’s present status as the fulcrum of contemporary dynamics of international relations and global trends (from rising powers and an Asian Century, to international terrorism, nuclear proliferation and energy security threats). These factors make South Asian security significant to the world, and highlight its relevance to the nature (and future) of the international system. Printed Pages: 193. 108397

The story of the investigation of the MIC toxic gas tragedy in Bhopal (more than 3,700 deaths) and the LPG disaster in Mexico City (500 fatalities), the difficult circumstances of the investigations and the results. Have we learned any lessons? Unique information like the original technical drawings of the Bhopal plant. Information about LPG safety, also by describing other LPG disasters. Various explosions (BLEVEs) of LPG road tankers are discussed. The underlying causes of the failure of safety management. Developments in 25 years are analysed. The disasters of 1984, compared with more recent incidents, such as an explosion in a furnace (Geleen, 2003) and the refinery disaster in Texas (USA) in 2005. Land use planning policies failed dramatically in Mexico and Bhopal. The existing (QRA) policy in Europe for safe distances around plants with hazardous substances will prevent that large number of victims are likely. However, the underlying causes of Mexico City and Bhopal are still present.Printed Pages: 198. 104282

Roman Republican Navy
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2007; 9516533507; New; 
This study deals with the Roman republican navy from the sixth century to the aftermath of the Third Macedonian War in 167 BC. During this period of time, Rome first extended her power over the ItaIian Peninsula and then in consecutive wars defeated Carthage, Macedon and Syria. The navy played an important role at all stages of the expansion of Rome’s Mediterranean dominion. The Romans could not have achieved what they did without the navy. In this process, the Roman navy itself became the master of Mediterranean after it had participated in the competition for thalassocracy and defeated all the other navies. Printed Pages: 236. 114679

Out of Line: Cartoons, Caricature and Contemporary India
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8125055134; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book explores the career of ‘graphic satire’, i.e., newspaper cartoons, in independent India (post-1947) It offers detailed analyses of the work of prominent practitioners of the genre, including: Shankar Pillai, R. K. Laxman, Abu Abraham, O. V. Vijayan and the collaborative team of Jug Suraiya and Ajit Ninan Chapter 1 reflects on Shankar’s endearing yet thoughtful portrayals of Nehru in his ‘Man of the Week’ series, which addresses the challenges confronting the early years of the republic In Chapter 2, the author deals with Laxman’s character the ‘Common Man’, a usually silent witness who testifies to the complexities of the post-Nehruvian era Chapter 3 deals with Abu Abraham’s Emergency-era series ‘Private View’, which sought to keep the national conscience alive through this difficult period Chapter 4 explores O. V. Vijayan’s dark and bitterly ironic graphic world, which deals with the inequities of development and the failures of justice in 1980s India Chapter 5 takes up the collaborative work of Jug Suraiya and Ajit Ninan, who address the issues and concerns of a more self-confident, post-liberalisation nation, including environmentalism, multinational capital and international warfare. Christel Devadawson interprets the genre of graphic dissent as a form of national ‘lifewriting’—the autobiographical recording of self, memory and experience—that brings to light the trials and travails of democracy in the young nation-state.Printed Pages: 292. 101854

The Quotidian Revolution: Vernacularization, Religion, and the Premodern Public Sphere in India
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8178244950; Hardcover; New; New; 
In thirteenth-century western India, venture spiritualists—entrepreneurial religious figures—challenged the linguistic and cultural hegemony of Sanskrit, a language restricted to high-caste men. They did this by formulating new texts and social orders oriented around the use of the regional languages that reduced the barriers to access that Sanskrit had imposed.In so doing, these venture spiritualists created an early form of the public sphere in which the social ethics of caste and gender inequity were debated. This debate drew from, and reconfigured, the sense and scope of “everyday life” permeated by social distinction.The configuration of a new public sphere in medieval India that engaged with questions of social equality in the context of expanding the scope of everyday life is the process called “vernacularization.” The Quotidian Revolution examines this pivotal moment in Indian history and argues that the medieval public sphere endures as a key strand of the unique genealogy of Indian democracy and modernity.

History, Bhakti, and Public Memory: Namdev in Religious and Secular Traditions
Permanent Black; Delhi, India; 2009; 8178242591; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 14.5 Cms 22.5 Cms 
Namdev is a central figure in the cultural history of India, especially within the field of bhakti, a devotional practice that has created publics of memory for over eight centuries. Born in the Marathi-speaking region of the Deccan in the late thirteenth century, Namdev is remembered as a simple, low-caste Hindu tailor whose innovative performances of devotional songs spread his fame widely. He is central to many religious traditions within Hinduism, as well as to Sikhism, and he is a key early literary figure in Maharashtra, northern India, and Punjab. In the modern period, Namdev appears throughout the public spheres of Marathi and Hindi and in India at large, where his identity fluctuates between regional associations and a quiet, pan-Indian, nationalist-secularist profile that champions the poor, oppressed, marginalized, and low caste. Christian Lee Novetzke considers the way social memory coheres around the figure of Namdev from the sixteenth century to the present, examining the practices that situate Namdev's memory in multiple historical publics. Focusing primarily on Maharashtra and drawing on ethnographies of devotional performance, archival materials, scholarly historiography, and popular media, especially film, Novetzke vividly illustrates how religious communities in India preserve their pasts and, in turn, create their own historical narratives.

A Garland of Light: Kambala's Alokamala
Asian Humanities Press; Fremont, California, USA; 2002; 0895819112; First Edition; Hard Cover; Brand New; 16 Cms x 24 Cms 
A Garland of Light provides an overview of the Yogacara or mind-only teachings in the form of verses meant to inspire. It is in this way reminiscent of the inspiring Madhyamaka-oriented work, the Bodhi[sattva]caryavatara. Kambala apparently wrote it in the period of innocence just before Bhavya polarized the Buddhist community by his attacks on the Yogacara teachings. So here we have a syncretism where Yogacara and Madhyamaka are not inimical to each other. Indeed, mind-only (citta-matrata) is here equated with emptiness (sunyata). It is the best introduction to Yogacara available. Includes Sanskrit and Tibetan texts. Printed Pages: 200 with notes, glosarry, and index. 009475

Buddhist Sculpture in Clay: Early Western Himalayan Art, Late 10th to Early 13th Centuries
Serindia Publications; Chicago, USA; 2004; 1932476024; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 24 x 30 Cm 
Large-scale clay sculptures representing the main deities are characteristics of the earliest Tibetan Buddhist monuments and particularly of the monasteries and village-temples built -from the end of the 10th to the early 13th centuries in West Tibet and Ladakh. Commonly placed in the main niches along the central axis of the monuments, these images of highest quality constitute a major source for the cultural and religious history of western Himalayan (Indo-Tibetan) art and early Tibetan art in general. Based on extensive field research and in situ documentation for more than a decade, this groundbreaking study provides a comprehensive assessment of the early western Himalayan sculptures and their context. Western Himalayan clay sculpture is the only preserved sculptures known so far that are built in accordance with the sophisticated sculptural technique described in Indian classical literature. It is closely linked to late Northwest-Indian (Buddhist) art in which otherwise little evidence remains. By surveying the astonishing variety of these sculptures and linking them to contemporaneous painting and other art forms such as woodcarving, this book provides the first comprehensive account of the development of western Himalayan art and its variegated forms of local adaptations. By tracing the spread and origin of iconographic forms and motifs, this study illuminates the interaction between Indian and Tibetan art when Buddhism was firmly established in the western Himalayas. Finally, it summarizes how the heritage of early western Himalayan art and sculpture has continued. The surveyed monuments include the Tabo Assembly Hall, Ropa, Nako, Lalung, Dungkar as well as the early temples of Alchi, Mangyu and Sumda. The 323 illustrations—most of them in situ documentation in color as well as archival photography, plans and diagrams—make this intensely cross referenced and indexed book an indispensable source for anyone interested in western Himalayan and early Tibetan art. The stunning quality and distinctive aesthetics of the sculptures, many of them represented on a full page, make it also a visual feast. Printed Pages: 368 with 323 colour illustrations. 033155

Finanssikapitalismin Väkivalta
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2015; 9527093015; New; 
Finanssimarkkinoiden romahduksesta liikkeelle lähtenyt kapitalismin kriisi on osoittautunut pitkäkestoiseksi ja siten systeemiseksi eikä ohimeneväksi kriisiksi. Christian Marazzi tarjoaa tässä kirjassa katsauksen kriisin rakenteellisiin syihin työn ja tuotannon muutoksissa sekä kapitalismin maantieteellisessä dynamiikassa. Hän osoittaa, että finanssikapitalismi merkitsee äärimmäistä väkivaltaa ihmisten elämää ja tulevaisuutta kohtaan mutta ei historiallisena poikkeuksena vaan sääntönä, sillä kapitalistinen yhteiskuntamalli perustuu lisäarvon tuottamiseen keinolla millä hyvänsä. Siksi finanssikapitalismin väkivallasta vapautuminen edellyttää myös työn ja tuotannon, kulutuksen ja tulonjaon muotojen radikaalia muutosta. Printed Pages: 103. 114899
