Islamist Militancy, National Security and The Pakistan State
Lenin Media Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2017; 9789385995323; Hardcover; New; New; 
The military has monopoly over most important decisions of the state. A part from being the guards in the external security of the nation, it is a well-accepted political institution. The Pakistani Army has the direct control over Pakistan’s nuclear program and foreign policy. The National Command Authority (NCA) was established by the former Chief of the Army Staff and President of Pakistan, General Pervez Musharraf, to assure the west that Pakistan’s nuclear weapon is safe. Islamization of the Pakistan Army has been occurring in some form since its birth in 1947. The nation was founded on the unity of a common religion. This religious identity was ingrained in the Army as a way of distinguishing itself from its Hindu counterpart. Officials accomplished this in superficial ways initially. In its early years, the Pakistan Army was very proud of its ability separate religion from the conduct of its internal business. Initially, the Pakistan Army’s actions were characteristic of a capable conventional military force, focused on preservation of the nation. The promotion of officers was based solely on their leadership ability and understanding of the art of war. The book is a study of the political scenario in Pakistan that discusses the intervention of the military in Pakistan’s politics for securing its own interests. Printed Pages: 298. 111866

Himalayan Degradation: Colonial Forestry and Environmental Change in India (Culture and Environment of South Asia Series)
Foundation Books; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8175966319; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 155 x 235 Mm 
Himalayan Degradation, Colonial Forestry and Environmental Change in India questions the recent trend of treating environmental and agrarian concerns as two separate domains. In this aspect, the book goes beyond the existing framework of environmental history that focuses only on the study of state policies and debates over redefining rights and examining protests. The author makes a careful study of the larger rural economy, emphasising the changing significance of pastoralism, trade and foraging in the life of the common people. He links forest degradation and environmental change to socioeconomic transformation. The introduction of ‘scientific forestry' in the late nineteenth century transformed forests into a profitable resource for commercial purposes. Forests were overexploited, which resulted in wider ecological changes in the Himalaya . Underlining the centrality of forests and mountain resources to the livelihood and culture of the people of Uttarakhand, the book subjects the notion of sustainable management of forests to close scrutiny. The book will be of interest to historians, environmentalists, policy-makers, social scientists and general readers. Contents Preface List of Tables, Maps, and Illustrations Acknowledgements Abbreviations Glossary Chapter 1: Introduction Part I: Nature and Culture in the Early Nineteenth Century Chapter 2: The Context: Society at the Onset of the Colonial Rule Chapter 3: The Changing Agrarian Environment Chapter 4: The Changing Attitude of the State Towards Forests Part II: Scientific Forestry, Forest Management and Environmental Change Chapter 5: Scientific Forestry and Social Control: Regulating Access to Forests Chapter 6: The New Forest Regime and Restructuring of the Livestock Economy Chapter 7: Commercialisation of Forests, Unsustainable Timber Extraction and Deforestation Chapter 8: The Myth of Sustainability and the Fate of Forests Chapter 9: Separating Farms from Forests: Collapsing of the Hill Economy Chapter 10: Conclusion: Unravelling the Crisis Afterthoughts: From Desperation to Hope Bibliography Index.

7115 Dhirendra Kumar Pant
Care and Administration of Heritage Monuments in India
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8173054207; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 22 x 28 Cm 
Certainly remarkable were the British efforts to safeguard the monumental heritage of India. The central administration of the Company’s Government and, subsequently, that of Crown not only showed genuine interest in Indian monuments, but also carried out programmes to safeguard its rich cultural past. For the first time, this book charts the administrative history of the growth and care of heritage monuments: from 1784 to 1904 – the years that are crucial for the development of the history of archaeology in India. The year 1784 saw the establishment of the Asiatic Society of Calcutta that marked the embryonic beginning of a consciousness ‘to explore, document, and preserve’ the ancient heritage of India; while enactment of The Ancient Monuments Preservation Act 1904 saw a culmination of the spirit to ‘dig, discover, and preserve the heritage’. These 120 years witnessed the birth and growth of the ‘archaeological consciousness’ in India and its urge to protect and preserve the monuments by the State leading to a permanent footing of the Archaeological Survey of India. Based exclusively on the archival records of the National Archives of India, State Archives, and the records of India Office, London, the book chronicles the administrative policy of English East India Company and the British Crown towards India’s heritage monuments: 1784-1904, highlighting the British government’s concern over the neglect of monuments, and how it put together efforts to evolve a definitive policy for arresting their further decay. Offered in fifteen chapters, the study vividly demonstrates the gradual development of a definitive policy towards care of monuments in India. Each chapter is followed by extensive original references. The book focuses specially on the times of Lytton and Curzon, when Archaeology in India received considerable state support and impetus. Dr Dhirendra Kumar Pant (b. 1946) is a former officer of the National Archives of India, New Delhi. He has also worked in the Ministry of Home Affairs as Senior Archivist.

7116 Dhirendra Mohan Datta
The Six Ways of Knowing: A Critical Study of the Vedanta Theory of Knowledge
D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2017; 8124609063; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
This volume critically examines six epistemological theories of the Advaita school of Vedanta: pratyaksha (perception), upamana (comparison), anupalabdhi (non-cognition), anumana (inference), arthapatti (postulation) and shabda (testimony). To make the study smooth and easy, it deliberates on two other concepts prama (conceptions of knowledge) and pramana (methods of knowing) as these underlie all epistemological discussions.The book highlights the problems, concepts and theories of the Vedantins within the focus of modern Western thought. The method adopted is one of critical analysis, comparison and evaluation. It also tries to formulate some important epistemological doctrines of Advaita Vedanta and show by some criticism that, if rightly understood, they are valuable contributions to the philosophy of the world.The book, targeting sceptical students trained in Western philosophy and an imagined tribunal of Western philosophers, tries to make a case for Advaita Vedanta, and thus is expected to usher keen interest among the students, teachers and followers of Advaita Vedanta.

From the Land of the Thunder Dragon: Textile Arts of Bhutan
Serindia Publications; Chicago, USA; 2008; 1932476423; First Edition; Paperback; New; 22 x 28 Cm 
Bhutanese textiles are among the last of the major arts of Asia to gain recognition in the West, and this is the first book to present this outstanding art form in its cultural and historical context. Bhutan's textiles, especially the intricate brocades and complex supplementary-warp patterns, are unmatched anywhere in the world. This art, with a steadily growing and devoted following in the West and Japan, has become Bhutan's most powerful emblem abroad. This volume, first published in 1994 (now reprinted in 2008) in conjunction with a special exhibition organized by the Peabody Essex Museum of Salem, Massachusetts, covers all aspects of Bhutan's textiles and weaving heritage, from the central role of women - more than 80 percent of Bhutanese women contribute to their household's income by weaving - to fibers, dyes, and looms, to the functioning of beautiful cloth as an item of trade and an indicator of historical change and social identity. This copiously illustrated book reveals the richness, originality, and striking beauty of Bhutanese textiles. Examples come from the Peabody Essex Museum, which holds the largest such collection of any North American museum, and public and private collections in Bhutan, the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. The illustrations are supplemented by field photographs and rare archival images. Printed Pages: 248 with 130 colour and 20 b/w illustrations. 023522

7134 Diana L. Eck
Banaras: City of Light
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 1992; 0140190791; Paperback; New; 16 Cms x 23 Cms 
The sacred city of Banaras on the River Ganges is one of the oldest living cities in the world—as old as Jerusalem, Athens and Peking. It is the place where Shiva, the Lord of All, is said to have made his permanent home since the dawn of creation. There are few cities in India as traditionally Hindu and as symbolic of the whole of Hindu culture as Banaras. In this eloquent, finely observed study, Diana Eck shows how the city, over the centuries, has become a lens through which the Hindu vision of the world is precisely focused. She reveals the spiritual and historical resonance of this holy place where great sages such as the Buddha and Shankara taught, where ashrams, palaces, and universities were built, where God has been imagined and imaged in a thousand ways. Eck describes the rites of its temples, the busy life of its riverfront, and the exuberance of its festivals. She narrates how people travel from all over India to Banaras for the privilege of dying a good death here, for they believe that on the banks of the River Ganges where ‘the atmosphere of devotion is improbable in its strength’, it is possible to be released from this earthly round forever. In her account of the sacred history, geography, and art of the city, its elaborate and thriving rituals, its myths and literature, and its importance to pilgrims and seekers, Diana Eck uses her wealth of scholarship to make the Hindu tradition come powerfully alive so that we come to understand the meaning that this sacred city holds for the millions of believers who have been coming here for over 2,500 years.

India: A Sacred Geography
Harmony Books; New York, USA; 2012; 0385347081; First Edition; Paperback; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
In India: A Sacred Geography, renowned Harvard scholar Diana Eck offers an extraordinary spiritual journey through the pilgrimage places of the world's most religiously vibrant culture and reveals that it is, in fact, through these sacred pilgrimages that India's very sense of nation has emerged. No matter where one goes in India, one will find a landscape in which mountains, rivers, forests, and villages are elaborately linked to the stories of the gods and heroes of Indian culture. Every place in this vast landscape has its story, and conversely, every story of Hindu myth and legend has its place. Likewise, these places are inextricably tied to one another not simply in the past, but in the present through the local, regional, and transregional practices of pilgrimage. India: A Sacred Geography tells the story of the pilgrim's India. In these pages, Diana Eck takes the reader on an extraordinary spiritual journey through the living landscape of this fascinating country ?its mountains, rivers, and seacoasts, its ancient and powerful temples and shrines. Seeking to fully understand the sacred places of pilgrimage from the ground up, with their stories, connections and layers of meaning, she acutely examines Hindu religious ideas and narratives and shows how they have been deeply inscribed in the land itself. Ultimately, Eck shows us that from these networks of pilgrimage places, India's very sense of region and nation has emerged. This is the astonishing and fascinating picture of a land linked for centuries not by the power of kings and governments, but by the footsteps of pilgrims. India: A Sacred Geography offers a unique perspective on India, both as a complex religious culture and as a nation. Based on her extensive knowledge and her many decades of wide-ranging travel and research, Eck's piercing insights and a sweeping grasp of history ensure that this work will be in demand for many years to come.

Taj Mahal: Passion and Genius at the Heart of the Moghul Empire
Walker & Company/TBI; New Delhi, India; 0802716733; Softcover; New; 
The dazzling story of the Taj Mahal and the empire whose spirit it epitomizes.Built by the Moghul emperor Shah Jahan as a memorial to his beloved wife, Mumtaz Mahal, the Taj Mahal's flawless symmetry and gleaming presence have or centuries dazzled everyone who has seen it, and the story of its creation is a fascinating blend of cultural and architectural heritage. Yet, as Diana and Michael Preston vividly convey in the first narrative history of the Taj, it also reflects the magnificent history of the Moghul Empire itself, for it turned out to mark the high point of the empire's glory at the same time as it became a tipping point in Moghul fortunes. With the storytelling skills that characterize their previous books, the Prestons bring alive both the grand sweep of Moghul history and the details that make it memorable. A tale of overwhelming passion, the story of the Taj has the cadences of Greek tragedy and the ripe emotion of grand opera, and puts a memorable human face on the marble masterpiece.

Spoonful of Grey
Mapin Publishing; New Delhi, India; 2005; 8188204439; Hardcover; New; New; 
Spoonful of Grey is about ordinary people and the places they inhabit. It?s about most lives?—subject to regularity and filled with little more than clandestine speculations. It?s about drifting and dopamine and every place being no different from any other. The people in these stories belong to the same mindspace, walk out into different lives; go through the bizarre everyday business of making memories that, in the end, are of no consequence whatsoever.

The Zen of You and Me: A Guide to Getting Along with Just About Anyone
Shambhala Publication/TBI; New Delhi, India; 2017; 1611803780; Softcover; New; 
The people who get under your skin the most can in fact be your greatest teachers. It’s not a matter of overlooking differences, as is often taught, but of regarding those difficult aspects of the relationship with curiosity and compassion--for those very differences offer a path to profound connection. Diane Hamilton’s practical, reality-based guide to living harmoniously with even your most irritating fellow humans—spouses, partners, colleagues, parents, children--shows that “getting along” is really a matter of discovering that our differences are nothing other than an expression of our even deeper shared unity.

The History of Astronomy from Herschel to Hertzsprung
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 1984; 0521257336; First Edition; Hard Cover; Fine; Fine; 16 Cms x 24 Cms 
This book assesses the impact of writing on human societies, both in the Ancient Near East and in contemporary Africa, and highlights some general features of social systems that have been influenced by this major change in the mode of communication. Such features are central to any attempt at the theoretical definition of human society and such constituent phenomena as religious and legal systems, and in this study Professor Goody explores the role of a specific mechanism, the introduction of writing and the development of a written tradition, in the explanation of some important social differences and similarities. Goody argues that a shift of emphasis from productive to certain communicative processes is essential to account adequately for major changes in human societies. Whilst there have been previous descussions of the effect of literacy upon social organisation, no study has hitherto presented the general synthesis developed here. Contents Studies in literacy, family, culture and the state: an introduction; Preface; 1. The word of God; 2. The word of mammon; 3. The state, the bureau and the file; 4. The letter of the law; 5.

Ajanta: Handbook of the Paintings (3 Vols)
Aryan Books International; New`; 2013; 8173054568; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 21 x 31Cm 
Prof. Dieter Schlingloff is one of the leading experts on the paintings of Ajanta. He has been engaged with the task of identifying the subject matter of the Ajanta Paintings in rich detail-a pre-requisite for further research. His steadfast research for last forty years constitutes a brilliant corpus of books and articles on the paintings of Ajanta. The present work comprises the quintessence of his research on the narrative wall paintings, their literary sources and the cultural background. In Prof. Schlingloff's own words, “The narrative paintings of the ancient period of Ajanta are of no less quality than the contemporaneous paintings of Roman Pompeii, and like those, they are the only testimonies of the marvelous art of narrative wall-painting elsewhere lost. The glory of ancient Indian culture and the high standard of its morality as revealed in the Ajanta paintings should become known worldwide”. The narrative wall paintings thus forms the subject matter of the present publication arranged in three volumes where the main focus remains on the relationship of the text and the image that will hopefully stimulate further discussion and investigation in similar fields. An English translation of the 2000 edition of “Ajanta, Handbuch der Malereien = Ajanta, handbook of the paintings”. Professor emeritus Dr. Dieter Schlingloff, formerly head of the Department of Indology and Iranian Studies at the University of Munich, Germany, is a specialist in Buddhist Sanskrit literature, ancient Indian culture and art. More than forty years of the author's researches have been concentrated on the narrative Ajanta paintings. Printed Pages: 928. 100100

7175 Dilbagh Singh
On the Wings of Destiny
KW Publishers; New Delhi, India; 2010; 9789380502267; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This volume is the life story of Air Chief Marshal Dilbagh Singh PVSM, AVSM, VM written by him before his unfortunate demise. Acknowledged as an outstanding professional fighter pilot and an outstanding commander during his four decades of service in the Indian Air Force, he was an imposing personality, tall, upright, smiling, confident and a born leader who set very high standards for himself and everyone under his command. He possessed great skills not only in operational matters, but also a mature understanding of the key role of the human element in the exercise of leadership. This book is an example of Dilbagh's extraordinary skills in recording not only a narrative of daily life – starting decades ago – in the Air Force, but the emotional element that brings each event, each incident, alive. His style is frank and forthright but laced with a charming touch of humility. Noteworthy also is – and this soon becomes apparent – that many paragraphs are narrations with a purpose, a deliberate choice to underline an important point – happily often peppered with wit and humour! The vivid account of his forty years in the Air Force also bears testimony to his truly remarkable memory of events and incidents from the very start of his career, memories of colleagues and friends, of emotions, of aspirations, and of the pulls and pressures of the all too frequent challenges and crises, big and small; and how he faced and surmounted each. It is so true that those of us who have spent the best years of our lives in the Air Force and want to live them all over again, cannot do better than to take to the skies 'On The Wings of Destiny'! For those not of the Air Force, but still curious about what life in the Air Force is all about, this book will be something they will greatly relish. It is, of course, a charming and accurate narration of Air Force life, of one who rose all the way to the top: of its thrills and its excitement, of friendship and camaraderie; of tragedy and of sorrow; of humour and of happiness; of action and of achievement. It is basically all about the challenging but wonderful life in the Indian Air Force which exists ready for action against the aggressor within minutes. Of special interest to the discerning reader will surely be Dilbagh's effort, in his rather charming and modest way, to tell us what, in his view, leadership is all about. And with it all, the story of his life gives a wonderful insight into the happiness and deep satisfaction of human relationships that life, in our Air Force at least, offers.Printed Pages: 228. 104407

Blood of the Earth: The Battle for the World's Vanishing Oil Resources
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2008; 0143104012; First Edition; Paperback; New; 13 Cms x 20 Cms 
When the Great Powers switched from coal to oil to run their navies just before World War I, it heralded a change in global politics comparable to the introduction of gunpowder in 1040. Oil became the chief strategic weapon of war. The victors’ conclusion that oil—the ‘blood of the earth’—proved to be the ‘blood of victory’ has since applied to all major conflicts. With petroleum becoming an indispensable part of modern life—from fertilizers and fuel to plastics and pharmaceuticals—it has emerged as the prized commodity for which wars are fought. As oil output peaks and competition for it grows fierce, the number of countries able to export will shrink to a handful by 2020. They will all be Muslim states in the Persian Gulf, except Venezuela, which is currently poised against the US. Blood of the Earth, by the acclaimed historian and journalist Dilip Hiro, is a gripping history of oil and how it has revolutionized civilian life as well as war and global politics over the last century. Written in Hiro’s customary lucid and colourful style, it sets the stage for the coming oil wars of the 21st century, as well as considering the alternatives to hydrocarbons.

Archaeological Geography of the Ganga Plain: The Upper Ganga (Oudh, Rohilkhand, and the Doab)
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8121511852; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 19 Cms x 25 Cms 
Based on archaeological field-work for six seasons (1999-2001, 2002-5), this book examines the problems of ancient political units, urban centres, and routes of the upper Ganga plain between Pratapgarh in the south and the foothills of Uttaranchal (Uttarakhand) in the north. This also examines how the links were maintained between this Himalayan belt and the plain, and what could be the general period by which the Himalayan pilgrim-spots of this sector came into focus. This book and the earlier one on the archaeological geography of the lower and middle Ganga plain sum up the author's observations on the historico-geographical survey of the Ganga plain which he conducted for fourteen field seasons beginning in 1991. In many ways these books demonstrate how it is possible to gain insights into the ancient historical reality of a region by going over the modern ground with a feel for the land, historical understanding, and the scholarship to back it. This is a path-breaking effort in Indian archaeology. Printed Pages: 259 with numerous b/w illustrations. 021373

The Archaeology of the Deccan Routes: The Ancient Routes from the Ganga Plain to the Deccan
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2005; 8121511399; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 19 Cms x 25 Cms 
Based on extensive field-studies in 1999-2002, this book sets out to trace the routes which linked the Ganga-Yamuna plain between Rajagriha and Mathura with Andhra (eastern Deccan) and Maharashtra (western Deccan) in the ancient period. What has emerged is the essential framework of a complex network of routes still traceable on the ground. This network has also been compared with the corresponding evidence in the mediaeval and later historic records, and it has been argued that, although the routes of these later periods had partly changed their alignments with the rise of new economic and political centres of power, the ancient alignments did not die out but continued to function at the grassroots level. This may be said to be the first field-study of its kind in the context of ancient Indian routes. Printed Pages: 183 with numerous b/w plates. 026409

Royal Messages By The Wayside: Historical Geography of The Asokan Edicts
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8173054118; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 19 x 25 Cm 
This book discusses the geographical implications of the locations of the Asokan edicts and is based on field-studies of many of these locations. The Asokan studies have largely been based, since their inception, on the issues of language, script and grammar, and one hopes that the studies of this kind, which are important ingredients of Asokan scholarship, will continue to be undertaken. However, textual scholarship or grammatical rules do not necessarily lead by themselves to historical or geographical knowledge. By studying in detail the geographical locations of the Asokan edicts, the present book has tried to understand some of the geopolitical factors operative in Mauryan India. It has also tried to identify ancient Tosali and the place where the battle for Kalinga was likely to have taken place. Two more major places which have been identified are Isila and Suvarnagiri. Among other things, it has argued that the Mauryan art, instead of being so-called 'imperial' and 'courtly', was much more broad-based than is thought and effectively foreshadowed some basic elements of the later 'Sunga art'.

Archaeology of Eastern India: Chhotanagpur Plateau and West Bengal
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1993; 8121506018; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 19 Cms x 25 Cms 
For a number of reasons the archaeology of the Chhotanagpur plateau and its extension up to the edge of the Bhagirathi plain in West Bengal deserves more than a passing mention in Indian archaeology. First, its sheer geographical extent requires emphasis: more than a hundred thousand square kilometres spread diagonally between the hills overlooking the Ganges near Rajmahal to the hills in southwestern Singhbhum on the one hand and between the northwesternmost part of Palamau to the Sonamukhi and Garh Jaipur forests in the eastern section of Bankura on the other. Secondly, the entire region is full of archaeological sites from the lower palaeolithic stage onwards, and some of the major issues of cultural development in eastern India are centred around them. Thirdly, the plateau which is rich in metals, stones and timber is the most important resource-bearing area in east India, and the way in which it was integrated into an exchange network with the plains may be a major archaeological and historic theme of study. Fourthly, the region as a whole is a home of a large number of tribal communities on various levels of subsistence and with different linguistic affiliations. Early this century a government officer wrote that it was as near as one could get to 'primitive India' but does this 'primitiveness' mean that this was an 'area of isolation' cut off from the main flow of Indian history? Which areas of study admit of the possibilities of ethnographic continuum between the prehistoric past and in the preindustrial present in this region? Based on field-surveys undertaken between 1981 and 1987, this work studies the archaeology of this region as a whole. Archaeological research in this region goes back to the 1860s but it is perhaps for the first time that the region as a whole has been studied and various dimensions of its archaeology focussed. This is also one of the major attempts to view archaeology as long-term settlement history in the context of India. Printed Pages: 242 with 31 line drawings and 14 b/w illustrations. 017897

A History of Indian Archaeology from the Beginning to 1947
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2001; 8121500796; Second Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
The history of Indian archaeology has not received the academic attention it deserves. It has a number of roots, the earliest of which goes back to the records of European travellers and sailors in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The ideas involved in its steady evolution since the middle of the eighteenth century are interesting in their own right and illuminate the history of the major discoveries and developments of the subject. Concerned with the evolving panorama of the Indian archaeological scene as a whole till 1947, this is the first major work of its kind. The author moves with an easy assurance, clarity and precision over a vast and diverse body of literature. The volume is further enriched by the inclusion of two original documents relating to Alexander Cunningham and Lord Curzon. This is a book which nobody with an interest in South Asian archaeology can possible afford to ignore. Printed Pages: 271. 014451

The External Trade of the Indus Civilization
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1990; 8121504856; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
The external trade of the Indus civilization is an important issue of Indian archaeology but most of the available publications lack a clearly detailed data-base and in-depth analyses of chronology, routes and other related issues. The present work fulfils this need and is a major contribution to the study of ancient trade in the Indian context. 037657

The Issues in East Indian Archaeology
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1998; 8121508045; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
Archaeology is a neglected field of study in eastern India. However, the area from Arunachal to Orissa and Bihar covers a very large chunk of the subcontinent and is also along its most distinctive cultural areas. From this point of view the establishment of a new archaeological research institute, Centre for Archaeological Studies and Training, in Calcutta by the Directorate of Archaeology and Museums, Government of Bengal, is a welcome development. In September 1996 the author who possesses a grassroots familiarity with the issues facing archaeological research in this region delivered a number of lectures at the invitation of this institute. The purpose of these lectures was to assess the current status of archaeological knowledge about east India and highlight some of its research priorities. The picture has been portrayed as objectively as possible and may help in the planning of archaeological research in this part of India. Printed Pages: 160. 000231

Theoretical Issues in Indian Archaeology
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1988; 81-215-0443-5; First Edition; Cloth; New; New; 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
The theoretical issues which have been considered in the present volume are the changing perspectives in Indian archaeology, diffusion an explanatory model, archaeology-literature correlation, geographical approaches, the study of prehistory, transition to foodproduction and urbanisation, agriculture, metallurgy and trade. The author's discussion of these issues (done in a course of eight seminars under the auspices of Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales, Paris) is both stimulating and original, and constitutes a significant addition to the south Asian archaeological literature.
