This reprint of a 1930 edition comes at a time when the mood is one of nostalgia for the days of the Raj. The picture presented here, however, is of the unrest and turmoil among the Indian peoples t the time. Devoid of the sympathy and understanding that many enlightened Britishers of the time held for the nationalist leaders in India, the author traces the roots of this unrest not to the mass of the people but to the corrupt and rebellious minds of a few irreconcilable intelligentsia. According to Captain Ellam who prefaces his work with a brief and summary history of India since the advent o... View more info

Mizoram, one of the hill states of India, is an agrarian economy where majority of the population practice shifting or jhum cultivation since the time of their forefathers. With the changing requirements of the growing population, jhum cultivation became devastating in nature, causing drastic decline in crop yield, loss of forest wealth, soil fertility, and biodiversity. It also causes environmental degradation. The need to develop alternative and sustainable form of land utilisation that could replace shifting cultivation was felt by the elites since the 1950s.

There is an apparent global power shift from the West to the East, essentially due to the rise of India and China and, as a consequence, the US has called for greater presence in the East in the midst of a major economic crisis and huge defence cuts. Many, after the Cold War, considered the international order to be unipolar; however, the rise of India and China, with Russia, Japan and South Korea assuming significant roles, appears to indicate a shift to a polycentric global order. Hence, the Indo-Russia dialogue assumes critical importance in the 21st century as a result of new evolving powe... View more info

The importance of a thorough analysis of the current state of India-Bangladesh relations can hardly be exaggerated. Sceptics may observe that India can afford to remain indifferent to relationships with Bangladesh, whereas Bangladesh cannot do so vis-à-vis India. But realities do not admit of such skeptic oversimplification. With India’s northeast region remaining chronically unstable, and with count ries across this region, e.g. China and Myanmar, trying to improve their relations with Bangladesh (which itself provides a commercial gateway to India’s northeast region), India has to upgra...

This is an indispensable book for anyone wondering what sort of changes to expect in U.S. foreign policy should the Democrats retake the White House later this year. Nye’s careful analysis of the shortcomings of unilateralism and reliance solely on military power in confronting the threat posed by Islamic extremists is strong, all the more so because it is virtually devoid of partisanship. He gives credit to President Bush and his neoconservative advisers in their projection of “hard” military and economic power. But he shows how what he casts as their blindness to the significance of ... View more info

Freedom is a simple idea in experience, but complex in analysis. The traditional free-will problem has been a subject of great philosophical debate. The ideas of moral freedom and moral responsibility have been greater puzzles in the history of thought. During the early period of the rise of modern science, a deterministic universe under the region of Universal Law of Causation was postulated leaving no scope for human freedom. However, with the advent of Modern Physics and Quantum causality, it was found that in a world not too rigorously determined by classical causality, there is scope for ... View more info
