4 Baidyanath Saraswati (Ed.)
Culture of Peace: Experience and Experiment
Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts/D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1999; 8124601240 / 9788124601242; Hardcover; New; New; 
Is peace a dream? A Utopian abstraction in a dehumanized, fragmented world, stockpiling all-devastating war machines? And can we possibly uphold the culture of peace amidst the growing cult of violence and blind consumerism, or in a climate of distrust, acrimony and intolerance? Embodying the presentations of an Asian Conference: 25-29 November 1996 in New Delhi on "The Culture of Peace: the Experiences and the Experiments", this volume addresses these and other kindred questions, with a rare insightfulness.Cutting across narrow compartmentalizations of disciplines, some of the best minds from Asian countries here share, with wider audiences, their concern for peace, situating their sensuous/intellectual/spiritual experiences in a culture of peace. Also identifying specificities in terms of peace-threatening issues, situations, geographical zones, the volume attempts to show how education, individual responsibility, philosophy, ethics, artistic creativity, collective spirituality, Gandhian non-violence, Sufis universal love, and the Buddhist message of compassion and equnimity can reinforce the culture of peace even in the face of despair.Printed Pages: 279. 101691

Integration of Endogenous Cultural Dimension Into Development
Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts/D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1997; 8124600899 / 9788124600894; Hardcover; New; New; 
This volume takes the discourse on: from the complex issues of cultural identity to the worldwide human problems stemming from the development-planners unmindfulness of endogenous cultures. Carrying 17 presentations of a Unesco-sponsored workshop: 19-23 April 1995 at IGNCA, New Delhi, it questions the modern methods of development which, evolved from the experience of the industrialized world, have brought about neither peace nor harmony, neither alleviation of poverty nor socio-economic equality. Thus arguing why current development processes call for serious rethinking, the authors spell out not only the urgency of integrating endogenous cultural dimension into the paradigms of development, but also the relevance of linking development with the ethical basis of life and living. Also included in the volume are several case studies, with special reference to the Asian situation.The contributors to this volume are reputed scholars, planners and grassroots-level social workers from China, India, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea, Thailand and Vietnam.Printed Pages: 271. 101687

Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts/D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1996; 8124600546 / 9788124600542; Hardcover; New; New; 
It is the inaugural volume of the Culture and Development series, comprising 23 presentations of a Unesco-sponsored meeting of experts: 19-23 April 1993 at IGNCA, New Delhi. Highlightng the basic distinctions that exist between anthropocentric and cosmocentric approaches to the question of cultural identity and development, the authors reflect on what constitutes culture and development not per se, but as an integral holistic notion of culture and lifestyle, culture and development, culture and region, culture and linguistic/ecological identities, and how some of the viable alternative development paradigms could be evolved from the convergence of mystical ancient insights and modern science. Authored by eminent anthropologists, scientists and other area-specialists from Australia, Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Iran, Mongolia, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Turkey, the papers here not only consider diverse theoretical issues of cultural identity and development, but also set out case studies in different field situations.Printed Pages: 101686

With meticulous analyses of the lifestyles of the Himalayan pastoral nomads, the Lakshadweep islanders, and Kanyakumaris Mukkuvar fisherfolk, among others, the studies here show how these communities follow the spirit of the natural world: not in imitation of old times, but in continuation of the primal vision. Delineating, thus, variegated cultural paradigms of these communities, with details like, for instance, of their belief systems, myths, rituals, folklore, songs, and their knowledge of cosmology as well as natural phenomena, the authors underscore the inseparability of nature and culture in the lived experience of traditional societies the world over. The book also carries a brilliant overview of ecology vis-a-vis traditional resource management systems.Printed Pages: 244. 101690

The Nature of Man and Culture: Alternative Paradigms in Anthropology
Aryan Books International; New Delhi, India; 2001; 8173051968 / 9788173051968; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
"The Nature of Man and Culture is a response to the relentless search for alternative paradigms in anthropology. Presented here are contributions from a distinguished group of experts from India, Kenya, Korea, Venezuela, Mexico and USA. Anthropology based on the premises of a materialistic science does not answer but raises questions about man. As for secular western science what is one to think? Are other modes of thinking possible outside the modern scientific horizon? Are there no visions of man, no other pillars of truth? Must everything be aided only by reason? Must an African, an Indian and a Chinese be uprooted from the nature-integrated culture? Can one observe the hidden variables of another culture? Do we have to follow the Darwinian – Tylorian – Durkheimian – Morganian – Malinoiskian anthropology, with no real choice at all? Or do we look for a new understanding? To answer such central questions, the authors of this volume reflect on sacred science, space and time, experience and expression, and question of universality. An effort has been made to ‘re-language’ traditional thought in terms of sacred science, cosmic anthropology, sonic anthropology, philosophical anthropology, quantum anthropology, experiential anthropology, people’s anthropology and so on. This book is an important contribution to the field of anthropological studies and an invaluable tool for anyone interested in a deeper understanding of human nature and culture."

Tribal Thought and Culture: Essays in Honour of Shri Surajit Chandra Sinha
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1991; 8170223407 / 9788170223405; Hardcover; New; New; 
This illuminating Festschrift is a collection of thirteen essays on tribes, written by a group of highly committed specialists in Anthropology, Sociology, Economics, Philosophy and Psychology. The four sections of the book are: implicit philosophy and world view; tribal aesthetics and science; biological, psychological interpretations; and the changing, the unchanging tribes. There is also a critical and appreciative evaluation of Surajit Sinha views on tribes and Indian civilization. Reflecting upon these essays the Editor explores new grounds of thought: tribe a perfect form of culture; tribal epistemology considering neither man nor god unique; tribal practice taking primacy over thought; no gap between tribal knowledge and existence; tribal cultures changing within limits of unalterable form; cosmological conflict in the changing tribes; and many other fascinating ideas and concepts that make the unconventional conclusion: tribe not the other. First of its kind, this book on philosophical anthropology of tribes makes the reader think of the strength and pervasiveness of a great category of people which has for long time been misinterpreted and misrepresented as prelogical and precultural. Tribal Thought and Culture is a book for wide ranging specialists and students interested in cosmology and changing world view, myths and traditions, music, medicine, survival crisis, value pattern, ad dynamics of social, religious and economic transformation of the timeless people.
