Indian Theatre: Traditions of Performance (Performing Arts Series: Vol. I)
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 8120809815; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Indian Theatre expands the boundaries of what is usually regarded as theatre in order to explore the multiple dimensions of theatrical performance in India. From rural festivals to contemporary urban theatre, from dramatic rituals and devotional performances to dance-dramas and classical Sanskrit plays, this volume is a vivid introduction to the colourful and often surprising world of Indian performance. Besides mapping the vast range of performance traditions, the volume provides in-depth treatment of representative genres, including well-known forms such as Kathakali and ram lila and little-knowa performances such as tamasha. Each of these chapters explains the historical background of the theatre form under consideration and interprets its dramatic literature, probes its ritual or religious significance, and, where relevant, explores its social and political implications. Moreover, each chapter, except for those on the origins of Indian theatre, concludes with performance notes describing the actual experience of seeing a live performance in its original context. Based on extensive fieldwork, Indian Theatre is the first comprehensive account of the subject to be written by Western specialists and addressed to the needs of readers in the West. It will be a valuable resource for all students of Indian culture and a standard work in the history of theatre and performance for years to come. Printed Pages: 501. 033564

9310 Fatima da Silva Gracias
Kaleidoscope of Women in Goa
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1996; 8170225914; Hardcover; New; New; 
This study provides a picture of the life styles of women both Christian and non-Christian in Goa (a tiny state in the west coast of India) during the Portuguese colonial rule. Customs, traditions and rituals dominated the life of the Goan women. The State and the Church played a significant role in upgrading their position. The Portuguese rule seemed to have made a difference to the status of women. As a result the conditions of women in Goa were far better than their counterparts elsewhere in India.

The War That Wasn't: The Sufi and the Sultan
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8121511682; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
The main thrust of the book is to analyze the subtle nuances of the dynamics of Sufi power in the social politics of the Delhi sultanate, and how this power affected the relations between the Sufi and the Sultanate - the two most powerful institutions in medieval India. This book contains numerous anecdotes from medieval Persian sources, while dealing with incidents related to these Sufis. Author's object in this book has been to examine the broad bases of Sufi history in the Sultanate period to adduce the sufficient evidence to suggest the need for a new approach. This work contains vital aspects of the Sufi movement, i.e., philosophy and practices of Sufism, development and practices of Sufism, development of Sufism in India, dynamics of Sufi power and the multidimensional role of the Sufi hospices, especially, as an impetus to urban expansion, i.e., khanqahs in India, during the Sultanate period.

Sacrificing People: Invasions of a Tribal Landscape
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8125041893; Softcover; New; 
Sacrificing People is a provocative anthropological study of the structures of power and authority which the British rule imposed on a tribal people of Central India, the Konds. The Konds practised human sacrifice and in the pretext of rooting out this ‘barbaric’ ritual, the British waged wars of conquest against them subjecting them to a century of exploitation. Recalling the violence during the colonial period, this book puts into perspective the violence and ethnic cleansing in the district of Kandhamal (2007–8) when invading forces burnt dozens of Kond villages. It also brings to light how mining companies have invaded the Kond territory due to the rich Bauxite cappings dominating their largest mountains and displaced several million tribal people.

Out of This Earth: East India Adivasis and the Aluminium Cartel
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2010; 8125038671; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Capping the biggest mountains in south Odisha are some of the world’s best deposits of Bauxite, the ore for aluminium—mineral wealth to bring prosperity to one of India’s poorest states. But for tribal people who have lived around them since history began, these mountains are sacred—not a resource to be exploited, but a source of life itself, through the water they store, and release in perennial streams. So metal factories, built in tribal areas with a view to mining the mountain summits, are seen as a new colonial invasion, to be resisted. Thousands of Adivasis have already been displaced, in a process of cultural genocide, that involves notorious scams, and corrupts the values of civil society at the same time as wasting irreplaceable resources. Aluminium is a metal we take for granted in hundreds of artefacts. But what do we understand about its real costs? This book traces a hidden history, coming alive through hundreds of voices and stories, of how one country after another swallowed promises of prosperity, and plunged into a cycle of exploitation and unrepayable debt. What is the link between the massive meltdown of Iceland’s banks, and the promotion of dams and smelters? Between the mafia-style looting of Russia’s assets and the rise to power of a succession of aluminium barons? Why did the US set a limit during the 1950s-60s and start to outsource aluminium factories to other, poorer countries, such as Ghana, Guinea, Jamaica, India? The answer lies in hidden subsidies and prohibitive ‘externality costs’. Making aluminium consumes vast quantities of water and electricity. The industry is driven by a cartel that fuses mining companies, investment bankers, government deals, metals traders and arms manufacturers. Secret deals motivate the projects. Behind these stand metals traders in derivatives, in London and other capitals, whose deals drive the industry through futures contracts. Adivasis who oppose this invasion of their landscape by aluminium projects in East India face an enemy as remorseless and difficult to fathom as the colonial East India Company. Mining projects are fuelled by an entrenched notion of development so powerful, that democracy and human rights often seem to wither in the face of it. This penetrating anthropological study uncovers an epic clash of ideologies that pits metals traders against Indian citizens whose lifestyle is a model of long-term sustainability. (400) The cover is a still from the documentary film by Amarendra & Samarendra Das: Wira Pdika: Matiro Poko, Company Loko (Earth Worm, Company Man, 2005). Printed Pages: 752. 033220

Ecology, Economy: Quest for a Socially Informed Connection
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8125051791; Hardcover; New; New; 
Ecology, Economy is an elaborate argument to establish society as central in policy-making for holistic development. The book presents cases of the adverse effects of resource utilisation—water, metals, power, land—on Adivasi communities in particular. It presents an overview of the paradoxes inherent in ‘development’ projects, emphasising the drastic drop in the standard of living of rural communities, and the immeasurable damage to India’s ecosystems and resource base.The authors highlight the tussle between real growth and the rule of law, the informalisation of labour under a neoliberal economy, and current threats to ‘Adivasi Economics’—the little monetised systems based on a long-term symbiosis with the natural environment, based on taking from the ecosystem without intrinsically damaging it.Printed Pages: 340. 101763

Grass-Roots NGOs By Women for Women: The Driving Force of Development in India
Sage Publications; New Delhi, India; 2006; 0761935002; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Adopting an inter-disciplinary approach, this book provides an in-depth understanding of why Indian NGOs run by women for women, tend to be successful. Based on first-hand observations spanning five years and interviews with 20 founders of NGOs, this book explores the factors that motivate and facilitate women entrepreneurship in the development sector. It examines the organizational structures that have evolved based on feminist ideology and the services provided (e.g. self-help groups and micro-finance). The authors also discuss the social impact of these NGOs in promoting both development and women’s empowerment. They show how small NGOs are particularly effective in garnering support from the grass-roots and in tapping the knowledge base of local communities. Overall, the authors find that women entrepreneurs act as facilitators with a unique leadership style and that they encourage community-based movements grounded in local issues. As a result, these NGOs are successfully changing the landscape of rural poverty in India while ushering in sustainable development. Printed Pages: 236. 028615

The Tears of the Rajas: Munity, Money and Marriage in India 1805–1905
Simon and Schuster; New York, USA; 1471129462; First Edition; Paperback; New; 16 x 24 Cm 
The Tears of the Rajas is a sweeping history of the British in India, seen through the experiences of a single Scottish family. For a century the lows of clatto survived mutiny, siege, debt and disease, everywhere from the heat of Madras to the Afghan snows. They lived through the most appalling atrocities and retaliated with some of their own. Each of their lives, remarkable in itself, contributes to the story of the whole fragile and imperiled, often shockingly oppressive and devious but now and then heroic and poignant enterprise. On the surface, John and Augusta Low and their relations may seem imperturbable, but in their letters and diaries they often reveal their loneliness and desperation and their doubts about what they are doing in India. The Lows are the family of the author's grandmother and a recurring theme of the book is his own discovery of them and of those parts of the history of the British in India which posterity has preferred to forget. The book brings to life not only the most dramatic incidents of their careers - the massacre at Vellore, the conquest of Java, the deposition of the boy-king of Oudh, the disasters in Afghanistan, the Reliefs of Lucknow and Chitral - but also their personal ordeals - the bankruptcies in Scotland and Calcutta, the plagues and fevers, the deaths of children and deaths in childbirth. And it brings to life to the unrepeatable strangeness of their lives - the camps and the palaces they lived in, the balls and the flirtations in the hill stations and the hot slow rides through the dust. An epic saga of love, war, intrigue and treachery, the tears of the Rajas is surely destined to become a classic of its kind. Printed Pages: 773. 037933

In Quest of Freedom
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2016; 8170223091; Hardcover; New; New; 
In Quest of Freedom, though it purports to be primarily an account of personal experiences of the author, is more than that. It provides glimpses into various aspects of the non-violent struggle launched in Goa since August 1954. It sheds light on the reign of fear that prevailed in Goa after that, and the police brutalities against the freedom fighters. The author succeeds in presenting the account as a struggle of the free human spirit against the powers of tyranny. The book is a testimony to the idealism that moved a generation of Goans of those times. Very striking is the capacity of the author to see the good points even in the Portuguese police and to display a sense of humour in describing situations that would normally be painted in a somber style.

Buddhist Positiveness: Studies on the Lotus Sutra
Motilal Banarsidass Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8120831918; Hardcover; New; New; 
The Lotus Sutra is one of the Buddhist texts which can give a real Idea of the force, originality, influence, and value of the Buddhist Positivene;5s. This essay on Buddhist Positiveness was originally written (in 1994) by Fernando Tola as an answer to the Catholic Pope's criticism of Buddhism, according to which Buddhism is a 'negative' religion; and this essay was presented afterwards, in an abridged version, as a paper, in The International Conference of The International Association of Buddhist Studies held in Lausanne, Switzerland (in 1999). The topics which are dealt with in this book are on the conflict of change in Buddhism; the conflict of change in the Lotus Sutra; apologetics and harmony in the Lotus Sutra and Bhavya; sunyata in the Lutus Sutra; some reflections that the translation of the saddharmapundarikasutra ) from its original text into Spanish) provoked in the authors regarding some linguistic, semantic and communication problems; the meaning of the infinite numbers in the Lotus Sutra; beginninglessness of the Veda and the Dharma, names of the Bhiksus and Bodhisattvas in the Lotus Sutra; Buddhist spirituality: positiveness in the Lotus Sutra; Buddhism and family; attitudes in regard to food in Ancient India, and some important reviews concerning the Lotus Sutra.Printed Pages: 286. 102348

Other Orientalisms: India Between Florence and Bombay, 1860-1900
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8125047581; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Other Orientalisms analyses different forms of knowledge about India through the circulation of people, ideas, information, images and objects between Florence and Bombay through the last decades of the nineteenth century. During this period, Florence became a centre of studies on India, organizing and promoting exhibitions, museums, journals, and international conferences. Based on the relationship between two Indianists – the Italian Angelo de Gubernatis, professor of Sanskrit in Florence, and the Goan historian José Gerson da Cunha, doctor and historian in Bombay – this book reveals an India created in different places and manifested by multiple voices. By being marginal to the main European colonial metropolis, the institutional, intellectual and visual experience of Florentine Orientalism enriches the debate on power and colonial knowledge that has been very much at the centre of the social sciences in the last decades. Likewise, by exploring the intellectual world of Bombay in the second half of the nineteenth century, made up of people from a variety of cultural, national and religious backgrounds, this book contributes to the wider cultural history of colonial India. By combining fascinating unpublished materials of this period, with a deep analysis embedded in contemporary historiographical approaches such as European and India encounters in a colonial context; the debate on “orientalism” initiated by Edward W. Said, or the global circulation of knowledge, people and objects, this books provides new insights into different fields. Printed Pages: 360. 037525

A Struggle for Identity: Muslim Women in the United Provinces
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789382993063; Hardcover; New; New; 
In the nineteenth century the British were occupied with the question of becoming socially acceptable as they had already established political and military sway in India. It was in this context that the servants of the East India Company merchants adventurers and missionaries who arrived in India from Europe attempted to enter the zennana in much the same manner as the ruling Indian elites. These foreigners adopted the ways of the ruling class and thus demonstrated a preference for the Muslim section of Indian society. This book is an attempt to understand the social and economic profile of Muslim women in India and to shed light on the conditions of Indian Muslim women in the United Province particularly after 1857. This period is significant for Muslim society as it was undergoing social and economic transition especially with the Mughal dynasty reaching its end.In the nineteenth century the British were occupied with the question of becoming socially acceptable as they had already established political and military sway in India.

Law and Gender Inequality: The Politics of Women's Rights in India
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2001; 0-19-566445-6; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Law and Gender Inequality maps the issue of gender and law reform upon a broad canvas of history and politics, and explores strategies which could safeguard women's rights within India's sphere of complex social and political boundaries. Written in a lucid style, this book provides an invaluable analysis of the current trends of the debate on the Uniform Civil Code and goes on to expose the communal undertones of some recent judicial pronouncements. The author brings the focus of this debate to the central issue - that of arresting the trend of destitution and consequential impoverishment of Indian women from all religious communities.

Family Law: Family Laws and Constitutional Claims, Vol. I
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2011; 0198067909; Softcover; New; 
The first of two-volumes on the subject, this book provides an in-depth analysis of family laws while exploring the overlaps and contradictions in them. It reviews the legal history of personal laws of the colonial and post colonial periods and their application in contemporary matrimonial law. The ground level litigation practices are interwoven with the framework of statutory provisions, which in turn provide an entry point into the rights discourses and social movements. The book discusses cases, Acts, and amendments, and unravels legal complexities. The concern of the book is to weave women`s realities into legal theories and position women`s claims within the Constitution to highlight the lacunae in laws and to analyse their effectiveness at the ground level. It further discusses the strategies which need to be adopted to make these laws work effectively. Printed Pages: 600. 108887

Negotiating Spaces: Legal Domains, Gender Concerns, and Community Constructs
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2012; 0198076630; Hardcover; New; New; 
Laws protecting women are based on a belief that gender-sensitive statutory laws can protect women better than the laws based on community practices of patriarchal traditions. However, in India these two sets of laws constantly overlap. Though apparently in conflict, the statutory laws, which are deemed to be uniform and certain but also formal and alien, coexist alongside the pluralistic community practices which are fluid, ridden with internal contradictions but also accessible. This volume analyses the impact of such laws on women`s rights, and studies the interventionist role of courts. The essays explore the contradictions that Indian women face when it comes to choosing between the formal state laws and community-based laws. The volume raises an important question that if law is not the sole arbiter which determines women`s rights, what are the other locations with which we need to engage for the determination of these rights? Unless we view the composite whole of women`s lives, it is difficult for us to comprehend the way women negotiate their rights. The essays in this volume contextualize these negotiations in order to better understand how and why certain laws work for women, and the manner in which we can engage with the process of social transformation beyond the realm of legal norms and dictates.

Existence and Enlightenment in the Lankavatara-Sutra (A Study in the Ontology and Epistemology of the Yogacara School of Mahayana Buddhism)
Sri Satguru Publications; Delhi, India; 1992; 8170303117; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This Book offers a systematic analysis of one of the most important concepts characterizing the Yogacara School of Buddhism (the last creative stage of Indian Buddhism as outlined and explained in one of its most authoritative and influential texts, Lankavatara-sutra. Compiled in the second half of the fourth-century A.D., this sutra not only represents a comprehensive synthesis of both early and late religio-philosophical ideas crucial to the understanding of Buddhism in India, but it also provides and Insight into the very early Roots of Japanese Zen Buddhism in the heart of the South Asian esotericism.The first part of the book outlines the three-fold nature of being, as conceptualized in Buddhist metaphysics. The Author uses an interpretive framework borrowed from the existentialist philosophy of Heidgger, in order to separate the transcendental Essence of Being from its Temporal manifestation as Self, and from its Spatial or Cosmic dimension. The second part clarifies the Buddhist approach to knowledge in its religious, transcendental sense and it shows that the Buddhists were actually first in making use of dialectical reasoning for the purpose of transcending the contradictory dualities imbedded in the common ways of perceiving, thinking, and arguing about reality.Printed Pages: 393. 101128

9381 Fouad Zakariyya
Myth and Reality in the Contemporary Islamic Movement
Routledge; London, UK; 2005; 0745322468; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
This classic book explores the intellectual, political and social foundations of Islamism, and current Islamist groups across the Arab and Muslim worlds. Written by Egyptian philosopher and leading Arab intellectual, Fouad Zakariyya, and now available for the first time in English, this thoughtful book has no rival as a critical introduction to the nature of contemporary Islamism. The book was written in the aftermath of the assassination of Egyptian president Anwar Sadat, and at the height of global debates about the relevance of Islamism in contemporary Muslim societies -- especially in the light of Iran's Islamic revolution in 1979. Zakariyya offers an important analysis of the multiple voices of current Islamism. He explores various recent attempts to construct an Islamic social and political order, presenting a sustained critique of modern ideological currents and theological worldviews. He delves into the sensitive question of Shari'ah, civil society and democracy in the Arab world. Ultimately, Zakariyya argues for a secular and democratic civil society that is unconstrained by past interpretations of the Shari'ah. Printed Pages: 200. 011263

Apocalypse Pakistan: An anatomy of 'the world's a most dangerous nation'
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 9789381523964; Softcover; New; 
Pakistan is presently the battle ground on which the unceasing war between the West and the international Islamic terror groups is being fought. After the killing of Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad and the case of Raymond Davis—an undercover CIA agent who killed two ISI agents in Lahore but was later released because of his diplomatic status—the relations between the once staunch allies Washington and Islamabad is at the lowest point in decades. How did they reach this point and how could they, for more than a decade, pretend to be fighting the same enemy together? Most importantly, what does the future hold for them and the rest of the world?Apocalypse Pakistan tries to answer these and more introspective questions, by analysing the political and cultural evolution of the Pakistani elite (generals, politicians, etc.) from Zulfikar Ali Bhutto to the present, on topics like the relationship with Afghanistan and China, terrorism and nuclear proliferation. The book is based on first person accounts, reportage and personal interviews with two generations of the Bhuttos, the Sharifs, Hamid Gul and also includes Mohammed Hafeez Saeed’s first ever interview to a woman journalist. The book presents a multi-faceted history of contemporary Pakistan and offers a balanced view without taking sides or trying to offer solutions to govern the country.Printed Pages: 204. 106530

Love in South Asia: A Cultural History
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2007; 8175964332; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 160 x 240 Mm 
Love may be a universal feeling, but culture and language play a crucial role in defining it. Idioms of love have a long history, and within every society there is always more than one discourse, be it prescriptive, religious, or gender-specific, available at any given time. This book explores the idioms of love that have developed in South Asia, those words, conceptual clusters, images and stories which have interlocked and grown into repertoires. Including essays by literary scholars, historians, anthropologists, film historians and political theorists, the collection unravels the interconnecting strands in the history of the concept (shringara, 'ishq, prem and Contents 1.

Before the Divide: Hindi and Urdu Literary Culture
Orient BlackSwan; New Delhi, India; 2011; 8125042636; Softcover; New; 
Today, Hindi and Urdu are considered two separate languages, each with its own script, history, literary canon and cultural orientation. Yet, pre-colonial India was a deeply multilingual society with multiple traditions of knowledge and literary production. Historically the divisions between Hindi and Urdu were not as sharp as we imagine them today. The essays in this volume reassess the definition and identity of language in the light of this. Its aim is to move away from the received historical narratives of Hindi and Urdu, and look afresh at the textual material available in order to attempt a more complex picture of the north Indian literary culture that is more attuned to the nuances of register, accent, language choice, genre and audiences. Various factors that would lead one to consider a broader range of texts and tastes that lay before poets and writers in those times are examined. For instance, why did a Sant write in Nagari Rekhta? Why did a Persian poet or an Avadhi Sufi mix Hindavi and Persian? Whatever their motivations, all these cases speak of an awareness of multiple literary models. It also implies a keenness towards experimenting with other literary or oral traditions that go against the purist intentions of modern literary historians.Printed Pages: 320. 101864

After Timur Left: Culture and Circulation in Fifteenth Century North India
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2014; 0199450668; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 15 x 23 Cm 
Timur invaded northern India in 1398 but returned to Samarkand a year later. In 1555 the Timurid emperor Humayun came back to India after being forced into exile in Persia and re-established Mughal rule in northern India. Between these two significant dates stretches an era largely consigned to oblivion—the 'long' fifteenth century. The Mughal dynasty has long occupied a pre-eminent position in research on Indian history. It has also been credited with ushering in a radically new age of innovation in art, literature, and statecraft. But what of the period before the Mughals? With the empire-centred study of history privileging periods of political centralization, the multi-centred fifteenth century has remained relatively unexplored and undervalued. After Timur Left presents a path-breaking interdisciplinary set of writings on the politics, languages, religions, literatures, and arts of the fifteenth century. Together they reveal it to be a period of considerable political and social mobility, of cultural connectivity and consolidation, of innovation in literature and language choices, and of new forms of religious organization and expression Printed Pages: 512. 038928

Humayun's Tomb Conservation
Mapin Publishing; New Delhi, India; 8189995960; Softcover; New; 
The Humayun’s Tomb-Nizamuddin area, inhabited by a vibrant local community, is visited by millions of tourists and pilgrims each year. Conservation works being undertaken on the monuments in this area have aimed to re-define standard conservation practice in India by setting benchmarks in using a craft-based approach, setting documentation standards, using a participatory and multi-disciplinary approach, and using the conservation initiative as a tool towards improving quality of life for local communities.This book aims to inform the general public about the discipline of conservation and the rationale behind the successful conservation initiative and makes an argument for change in conservation approach in India: from isolated monuments to an urban approach that includes concern for the setting; from a ‘tender-based’ approach to a quality-concerned method; amongst other factors.
