This work is a fascinating and innovative study which provides a detailed analysis of milk kinship; historically a medium for establishing complex social and political networks.

A child nursed by a woman becomes not only a blood relation to the nursing woman, but also a milk sibling to others who shared her breast. This relationship also prevents future marriage to a complicated array of 'relatives'. The study suggests th... View more info

China’s India War: Collision Course on the Roof of the World

Publisher: New Delhi, Oxford University Press: 2017

Seller ID: 700659

ISBN: 0199475555

Condition: New


For fifty years, India has been seen as the provocateur of the 1962 Sino-Indian conflict. This idea has been largely reinforced by Neville Maxwell’s seminal work India’s China War, which proposed that China was merely defending its territory. Bertil Lintner’s China’s India War offers a strong rebuttal to this view. Offering an entirely new perspective, Lintner argues that the ‘border dispute’ was merely a small move in the larger strategic game that China was playing to become a world player—one that it continues to play even today.

The proliferation of rebel groups coincided with the exclusion of economic issues and instruments in the ongoing peace process which has, so far, failed to address ... View more info

One of India’s most celebrated litterateurs, Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) was a social, political, religious and aesthetic thinker who towered over his countrymen. However, while his contribution to Bengali literature is well documented, his work on rural resuscitation has gone largely unnoticed. It is imperative to place Tagore’s constant ideological progression and his attempts to put innovative ideas into practice in the context of changing nationalist outlook on programmes geared towards rural revitalization during the anti-imperialist struggle.
