The Alchemical Body: Siddha Traditions in Medieval India
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2004; 8121511151; First Indian Deluxe Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 17 Cms x 26 Cms 
The Alchemical Body excavates and centers within its Indian context the lost tradition of the medieval Siddhas. Working from a body of previously unexplored alchemical sources, David Gordon White demonstrates for the first time that the medieval disciplines of Hindu alchemy and hatha yoga were practiced by one and the same people, and that they can only be understood when viewed together. White opens the way to a new and more comprehensive understanding of medieval Indian mysticism, within the broader context of South Asian Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and Islam.

Yoga in Practice
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8121512727; First Indian Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
Yoga is a body of practice that spans two millennia and transcends the boundaries of any single religion, geographic region, or teaching lineage. In fact, over the centuries there have been many “yogas”—yogas of battlefield warriors, of itinerant minstrels and beggars, of religious reformers, and of course, the yogas of mind and body so popular today. Yoga in Practice is an anthology of primary texts drawn from the diverse yoga traditions of India, greater Asia, and the West. This one-of-a-kind source book features elegant translations of Hindu, Buddhist, Jain, and even Islamic yogic writings, many of them being made available in English for the very first time. Collected here are ancient, colonial, and modern texts reflecting a broad range of genres, from an early medical treatise in Sanskrit to Upnishadic verses on sacred sounds; from a Tibetan catechetical dialogue to funerary and devotional songs still sung in India today; and from a 1930s instructional guide by the grandfather of contemporary yoga to the private papers of a pioneer of tantric yoga in America. Emphasizing the lived experiences to be found in the many worlds of yoga, Yoga in Practice includes David Gordon White’s informative general introduction as well as concise introductions to each reading by the book’s contributors.

6708 David Grossman; Translated By Stuart Schoffman
Lion's Honey: The Myth of Samson
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0143103652; First Edition; Flexiback; New; 14 x 22 Cm 
Samson the hero; a brave warrior, leader of men and Nazarite of God? Or a misfit given to whoring and lust, who failed to fulfil his destiny? In Lion’s Honey, award-winning writer David Grossman takes on one of the most vivid and controversial characters in the Bible. Revisiting Samson’s famous battle with the lion, his many women and his betrayal by them all—including the only one he ever loved—Grossman gives us a provocative new take on the story and its climax, Samson’s final act of death, bringing down a temple on himself and three thousand Philistines. In exhilarating and lucid prose, Grossman reveals the journey of a single, lonely and tortured soul who never found a true home in the world, who was uncomfortable in his own body and who, some might say, was the precursor to today’s suicide bombers.

6715 David Hardiman
Histories for the Subordinated
Permanent Black; Delhi, India; 2006; 8178240998; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 14.5 Cms 22.5 Cms 
David Hardiman, a founding member of ‘Subaltern Studies’ and the author of several monographs on the societies, cultures, and histories of Western India (Gujarat, Maharashtra, and parts of Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan), is widely recognized as being among the foremost contemporary historians of the subcontinent. His prose is seen as being particularly accessible and jargon-free. Hardiman’s practice as a historian— both via his enormously rich empiricism, archival work, and fieldwork, as well as via his discursive lucidity—has been an inspiration to many, even as it has implicitly questioned some of the fashionably arcane modes of history-writing. This collection pulls together Hardiman’s core ideas and writings on politics, environmental issues, Gandhi, moneylending, disease, and subaltern history. Many of these writings are not otherwise easily available. This book will interest all serious readers of Indian history as well as scholars in the areas of politics, sociology, culture, and religion in modern India. It is also hoped that it will be of some value for marginalized and subordinate groups in India, providing examples of how their histories may be written, and serving as a tribute to their resilience in continuing adversity and oppression.

The Cambridge Companion to Narrative
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0521673666; First Edition; Paperback; New; 150 x 230 Mm 
The Cambridge Companion to Narrative provides a unique and valuable overview of current approaches to narrative study. An international team of experts explores ideas of storytelling and methods of narrative analysis as they have emerged across diverse traditions of inquiry and in connection with a variety of media, from film and television, to storytelling in the 'real-life' contexts of face-to-face interaction, to literary fiction. Each chapter presents a survey of scholarly approaches to topics such as character, dialogue, genre or language, shows how those approaches can be brought to bear on a relatively well-known illustrative example, and indicates directions for further research. Featuring a chapter reviewing definitions of narrative, a glossary of key terms and a comprehensive index, this is an essential resource for both students and scholars in many fields, including language and literature, composition and rhetoric, creative writing, jurisprudence, communication and media studies, and the social sciences. • Includes a glossary of key terms and concepts • Accessible overview of the main issues in the field and of current trends in narrative studies • Includes examples from literature, film and daily life Contents Part I.

6722 David Hume
Keskusteluja luonnollisesta Uskonnosta
Bookstore Tiedekirja; Finland; 2015; 9525503909; New; 
Voidaanko maailmanjärjestykselle löytää älyllinen syy vain maailman havaittavia piirteitä tarkkailemalla? David Hume kuvaa teoksessaan Demean, Filonin ja Kleanthesin keskusteluja jumalan olemassaolosta. Sananvaihdossa käydään läpi keskeisimmät argumentit niin korkeimman olennon olemassaolon puolesta kuin sitä vastaan. Keskusteluja luonnollisesta uskonnosta julkaistiin vasta David Humen (1711-1776) kuoleman jälkeen. Se on edelleen nykyaikaisen uskonnonfilosofian lyömätön perusteksti, terävä ja tyylillisesti nautittava. Printed Pages: 146. 116790

Mulamadhyamakakarika of Nagarjuna: The Philosophy of the Middle Way
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2015; 812080774X; Sixth Reprint; Hardcover; New; New; 
This is a completely new translation of Nagarjuna`s major work the Mulamadhyamakakarika, accompanied by a detailed annotation of each of the verses. The annotation identifies the metaphysical theories of the scholastics criticized by Nagarjuna, and traces the source material and the arguments utilized in his refutation back to the early discourses of the Buddha. The Introduction presents a completely new hypothesis about the nature of treatise. The work is a grand commentary on the Buddha's "Discourse to Katyayana" (Kaccayanaqotta-sutta). The concluding part of the Introduction compares the teaching of the Buddha and Nagarjuna in regard to epistemology, ontology, ethics and philosophy of language indicating how the latter was making a determined attempt to reconstruct the Buddha's teachings in a very faithful manner, avoiding the substantialist metaphysics of the scholastics.Printed Pages: 430. 102391

Out of the Mountains: The Coming Age of the Urban Guerrilla
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 0199450366; Hardcover; New; New; 
In his third book, David Kilcullen takes us out of the mountains: away from the remote, rural guerrilla warfare of Afghanistan, and into the marginalised slums and complex security threats of the world`s coastal cities, where almost 75 per cent of us will be living by 2050. Scrutinising major environmental trends ? population growth, coastal urbanisation?and increasing digital connectivity, he projects a future of feral cities, urban systems under stress, and increasing overlaps between crime and war, internal and external threats, and the real and virtual worlds. Informed by Kilcullen`s own fieldwork in the Caribbean, Somalia, the Middle East and Afghanistan, and that of his field research teams in cities in Central America and Africa, Out of the Mountains presents detailed, on-the-ground accounts of the new faces of modern conflict ? from the 2008 Mumbai terrorist attacks, to transnational drug networks, local street gangs, and the uprisings of the Arab Spring.

Tantric Visions of the Divine Feminine: The Ten Mahavidyas
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8120815238; Softcover; New; 
What is one to make of a group of goddesses that includes a goddess who cuts her own head off, a goddess who sits on a corpse while pulling the tongue of a demon, or a goddess who prefers sex with corpses? Tantra visions of the Divine Faminine deals with a group of ten Hindu tantric goddesses, the Mahavidyas, who embody habits, attributes, or identities, usually considered repulsive or socially subversive. It is within the context of tantric worship that devotees seek to identify themselves with these forbidding goddesses. The Mahavidyas, who embody habits, attributes, or identities, usually considered repulsive or socially subversive. It is within the context of tantric worship that devotees seek to identify themselves with these forbidding goddesses. The Mahavidyas seem to function as "awakeners" - symbols that help to project one's consciousness beyond the socially acceptable or predictable. Kinsley not only describes the eccentric qualities of each of these goddesses, but seeks to interpret the Mahavidyas as a group and to explain their importance for understanding Tantra and the Hindu tradition.Printed Pages: 328. 102331

English Country Furniture: 1500 -1900

The literature on English period furniture has largely been dominated by a preoccupation with that of the rich and upper classes, resulting in a neglect of the humbler pieces used in more ordinary homes over the centuries. This attitude is now regarded as unacceptable, however, and the past everyday furniture of England has accordingly become the focus of intensive research. This book, the first major production of its kind and now a classic reference work, examines the pieces found in humbler urban and rural homes over a span of some four centuries, throwing fresh light on such aspects as regionalvariations, dating assessment, construction techniques, stylistic influenceand context. Each of the many examples illustrated, most of them previouslyunpublished in book form, is accompanied by a detailed caption giving timber,a realistic date range and an extensive description, including such informationas local characteristics, finish, distinctive decorative features and manufacturing methods. In this second edition both the format and the text have been thoroughlyrevised and the number of illustrations greatly increased. The Author David Knell is a former Sotheby’s consultant with a specialist expertise in early and vernacular furniture. In addition to contributing articles to periodicals and academic publications, he has lectured widelyon his chosen field both in North America and in Britain. Brought up in Canada, he now lives in West Sussex, where he is furniture consultant to the Mary Rose Trust. His professional involvement with theauction world allows him to actively continue his research * The first and only work of its kind on Country Furniture * The first book to stress the full impact of Oriental influence on English furniture * Challenges several popular beliefs and re-evaluate * Very readable and accessible text.

The Bhaktirasamrtasindhu of Rupa Gosvamin
Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts/MLBD; New Delhi, India; 2003; 812081861X; Hardcover; New; New; 
Bhakti or devotional love is the way of directly encountering the rasa in human )experience. The aesthetic experience of rasa which is available to human beings was somehow not fully manifested and established from the 'intellectual' point of view. A glimpse of the rasa accomplished is available in the encounter of Uddhava and gopis. Humans by nature are rational and logical beings. They prefer logical conclusions which have universal applicability. To logically establish the path of rasa was the endeavour of the seekers and thinkers of V?ndavana, which emerged as the seventeenth century intellectual, cultural and spiritual centre of the Vraja region. Sri Rupa Gosvamin, a direct disciple of Sri Caitanya, was a shining member of the team of six Gosvamins. For him the emotionally experienced bhakti­prema-rasa is equally knowable and communicable. The human consciousness could reach the ocean of rasa through Sri Bhaktirasam?tasindhu. If there is an experience, it can be expressed and for an expression to be meaningful it has to be guided by a "grammar" or a Sastra. The famous trilogy of Bhaktirasam?tasindhu, Ujjvalanilama?i and Niitakacandrikia of Sri Rupa Gosvamin provided for the first time a total Sastra of bhaktirasa.It is felt that the Bhaktirasam?tasindhu be made available to the English-knowing world as well. David Haberman has fulfilled this need by undertaking the stupendous task of translating this definitive text on bhakti rasa into English. The present edition includes the original Sanskrit in Devanagar1, Haberman's translation and exegetical notes explaining all the intricate points of the text. An exhaustive table of contents and elaborate introduction, glossary and bibliography have greatly enhanced the value of the edition.Printed Pages: 744. 101665

The Young Karl Marx: German Philosophy, Modern Politics, and Human Flourishing
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2007; 0521874777; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 155 x 235 Mm 
The Young Karl Marx is an innovative and important new study of Marx’s early writings. These writings provide the fascinating spectacle of a powerful and imaginative intellect wrestling with complex and significant issues, but they also present formidable interpretative obstacles to modern readers. David Leopold shows how an understanding of their intellectual and cultural context can illuminate the political dimension of these works. An erudite yet accessible discussion of Marx’s influences and targets frames the author’s critical engagement with Marx’s account of the emergence, character, and (future) replacement of the modern state. This combination of historical and analytical approaches results in a sympathetic, but not uncritical, exploration of such fundamental themes as alienation, citizenship, community, antisemitism, and utopianism. The Young Karl Marx is a scholarly and original work which provides a radical and persuasive reinterpretation of Marx’s complex and often misunderstood views of German philosophy, modern politics, and human flourishing. • Provides a clear and accessible account of difficult and unfamiliar concepts used by Marx • Discusses the historical context as well as the analytical structure of Marx’s arguments • Offers an innovative and well-founded interpretation of Marx’s political and philosophical thought Contents Acknowledgements; A note on language, references, and translation; 1.

Prostate diseases is, in essence, the male counterpart of breast disease. Just as women fear breast cancer, men worry about their prostates. That's understandable. Like breast cancer in women, treatment for prostate cancer can sometimes lead to difficult decisions and unexpected consequences.This easy-to-understand book focuses on three common conditions - prostatitis, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and prostate cancer. All these conditions are often easily treated. The key to a good outcome is early diagnosis. When detected early, cancer and other prostate disorders have the best chance of successful treatment with minimal side effects. That's why it's important that you know the early warning signs of prostate disease and, if you're at least 40 years old, that you have yearly checkup.Printed Pages: 184. 106669

The Life of the Madman of U
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2017; 8120841263; Softcover; New; 
The Life of the Madman of U tells the story of Kunga Zangpo (1458-1532), a famous Tibetan Buddhist yogin of the Kangyu sect. Having grown weary of the trials of human existence, Kunga Zangpo renounced the world during his teenage years, committing himself to learning and practicing the holy Dharma as a monk. Some years later he would give up his monkhood to take on a unique tantric lifestyle that entailed dressing in human remains, wandering from place to place, and provoking other to attack him physically, among other norm-overturning behaviors. It was because of this asceticism that Kunga Zangpo came to be known as the Madman of U. David M. DiValerio translates this biography, originally written in two parts in 1494 and 1537, making accessible to a modern audience a rich depiction of religious life in fifteenth-and sixteenth-century Tibet. The book also details Kunga Zangpo's many miracles, a testament to the spiritual perfection he attained. His final thirty years were spent at his monastery of Tsimar Pel, where he dispensed teachings to his numerous disciples and followers. The Life of this remarkable and controversial figure, now available in English for the first time, provides new means for understanding the tradition of the "holy madman" (smyon pa) in Tibetan Buddhism.

Lion of Siddhas: The Life and Teachings of Padampa Sangye
Snow Lion/TBI; New Delhi, India; 1559392991; Softcover; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Best known as Machig Labdron's teacher, the Indian mahasiddha Padampa Sangye is counted as a lineage guru by all schools of Tibetan Buddhism. He brought the lineage of Chod to Tibet, carried the Buddha's teachings to China, and is even asserted in the Tibetan tradition to have been the legendary Bodhidharma. Padampa Sangye's teaching methods were unorthodox and sometimes extreme. This transcendent and irascible teacher encouraged his disciples to disregard social conventions, disdain social contacts, and go beyond their cultural conditioning. He inspired innumerable highly realized disciples, many of whom were women. "Lion of Siddhas" presents two extraordinary texts: a biography of Padampa Sangye, and a rare collection of his verbal and nonverbal teachings called "Mahamudra in Symbols," recorded by his chief Tibetan disciple almost a thousand years ago. Both are previously untranslated. Printed Pages: 336. 117534

Soil Mechanics: A One-Dimensional Introduction
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2010; 0521187303; First Edition; Paperback; New; 175 x 240 Mm 
This book teaches the principles of soil mechanics to undergraduates, along with other properties of engineering materials, to which the students are exposed simultaneously. Using the critical state method of soil mechanics to study the mechanical behavior of soils requires the student to consider density alongside effective stresses, permitting the unification of deformation and strength characteristics. This unification aids the understanding of soil mechanics. This book explores a one-dimensional theme for the presentation of many of the key concepts of soil mechanics - density, stress, stiffness, strength, and fluid flow - and includes a chapter on the analysis of one-dimensional consolidation, which fits nicely with the theme of the book. It also presents some theoretical analyses of soil-structure interaction, which can be analyzed using essentially one-dimensional governing equations. Examples are given at the end of most chapters, and suggestions for laboratory exercises or demonstrations are given. Contents 1. Introduction 2. Stress in soils 3. Density 4. Stiffness 5. Seepage 6. Changes in stress 7. Consolidation 8. Strength 9. Soil-structure interaction 10. Envoi, exercises numerical answers. Printed Pages: 252 with 192 b/w illustrations and 18 tables. 035587

Monk, Householder, And Tantric Priest: Newar Buddhism and Its Hierarchy of Ritual (Cambridge Studies in Social and Cultural Anthropology Series)
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2009; 8185618135; First Edition; Paperback; New; 140 x 215 Mm 
Many misconceptions circulate in the West about Tantric religion, whether Buddhist or Hindu, mainly because scholars have relied exclusively on textual sources. Here, for the first time, is an account of how Tantric Buddhism works in practice. Monk, Householder and Tantric Priest is a detailed ethnography of the Mahayana and vajrayana (Tantric) Buddhism of the Newars of the Kathmandu valley, Nepal. It describes the way of life and social organisation of the Hindu-Buddhist city of Lalitpur, the relationship of Buddhism to Hinduism, and the place of religion and ritual in the life of Newar Buddhists. The study of the Newars has wider implications for it allows us to grasp how Buddhism-works and worked in its original context of caste and Hindu Kingship. This is an important book which should appeal to those interested in Buddhism and religious studies specialists, as well as to South Asianists, sociologists and social anthropologists.

Ethnic Activism and Civil Society in South Asia
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8132100867; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This volume, the second in the Governance, Conflict, and Civic Action series, examines civil society in South Asia through case studies of different kinds of ethnic (‘communal’) activism. With chapters covering Nepal, Sri Lanka, and India (Darjeeling, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, and Tamil Nadu), it avoids the ‘methodological nationalism’ so frequent in social science publications on the region. The articles examine Hindu nationalism, Dalit activism in India and Nepal, and the Janajati movement in Nepal, and show how they are animated by common ideals and themes, such as emphasis on the involvement of youth, the assertion of pride and masculinity, the desire to resist injustice and reassess previously stigmatized symbols, the importance of land and belonging, and so on. South Asian civil society is a site of constant struggle. This volume shows how ethnic activists wrestle with official classifications and the categories of daily, traditional practices and attempt to turn these to their advantage, often bringing about radical social, political, and intellectual change as a result. It also argues that ethnic movements need to be investigated by social scientists as a part of civil society, and it shows how this can be done. Ethnic Activism and Civil Society in South Asia will be an ideal reference for those interested in ethnicity, sociology, political science, anthropology, and South Asian studies.

Borderland Lives in Northern South Asia
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2014; 8125054235; Hardcover; New; New; 
Borderland Lives in Northern South Asia provides valuable new ethnographic insights into life along some of the most contentious borders in the world. The collected essays portray existence at different points across India's northern frontiers and, in one instance, along borders within India. Whether discussing Shi'i Muslims striving to be patriotic Indians in the Kashmiri district of Kargil or Bangladeshis living uneasily in an enclave surrounded by Indian territory, the contributors show that state borders in Northern South Asia are complex sites of contestation.India's borders with Bangladesh, Bhutan, Burma/Myanmar, China and Nepal encompass radically different ways of life, a whole spectrum of relationships to the state, and many struggles with urgent identity issues. Taken together, the essays show how it is possible to comprehend Northern South Asia's various nation-state projects without relapsing into conventional nationalist accounts.Academic borderland studies are dominated by examples from North America (especially the US-Mexico border) and from Europe; this volume shows that examples from Northern South Asia also deserve a central place in discussions of borders and state-making.Printed Pages: 320. 101752

Local Democracy in South Asia: Microprocesses of Democratization in Nepal and Its Neighbours
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0761936505; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This volume, the first in a new series on governance, conflict, and civic action in South Asia, focuses on the larger countries of South Asia—Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and especially Nepal. The 15 essays in this volume analyze democracy both as a process and as a value. The essays also examine in ethnographic detail the way in which democracy is actually experienced in South Asia, ranging far beyond conventional political structures to look at conflict resolution, rhetorics of foreign aid, ethnic organizations, Maoist practices of local government, Dalit resistance, and so on. Many of the processes that are analyzed in depth in the Nepalese context are shown to have their analogues in other South Asian countries. By putting Nepalese political and social processes firmly within their South Asian context, the current political crisis in Nepal is shown to be neither so radically new and different, nor so insoluble as it might appear. At the same time, the view from the peripheries of South Asia throws into relief the extent to which India has evolved away from the traditional caste-determined patron-client structures that once formed the framework of political action there. The volume is a significant contribution to the study of how local democracy actually operates in South Asia. It will be of interest to political scientists, sociologists, anthropologists, and development specialists. Printed Pages: 472. 028322
