Encyclopedia of Hinduism

Michael York

Routledge Taylor & Francis Group, 2010. 5th or later edition. Softcover. New. 17 x 25 cm. As stated in this volume’s preface, “Hinduism has come to be the accepted term designating the religion that traces its origins to the Veda dating from the second millennium B.C.E.” Arguably the oldest extant religious tradition, Hinduism ranks third, behind Christianity and Islam, in number of adherents worldwide. Surprisingly, no substantial scholarly reference work exists that is devoted exclusively to Hinduism, though single-volume dictionaries have been published over the years, and some multivolume encyclopedias are being published in India. The Encyclopedia of Hinduism is, therefore, a welcome and much-needed addition to reference shelves. The nearly 900 alphabetically arranged entries were written by a team of international scholars and conclude with see references and supplemental bibliographies. Two survey articles (Hinduism and Hinduism, modern and contemporary) provide a good historical introduction. Although coverage of important concepts, deities, and sacred texts are, of course, included, the editors have taken special care to ensure that devotional, ritual, and nontextual aspects of religious practice are presented (e.g., Popular and vernacular traditions and Image worship). There are entries that discuss Hindus throughout the world (Americas, Hindus in), thereby demonstrating that it is a mistake to try to confine Hinduism as a religious tradition to the Indian subcontinent. Indeed, two additional survey entries (Western culture, Hindu influence on and Western popular culture, Hindu influence on) describe the influence of Hinduism not only on, say, Western poetry and philosophy but also on George Harrison of the Beatles. In addition to helping us understand the historical roots of the interaction of Hinduism and the modern world, the Encyclopedia of Hinduism brings together, at long last, the art, deities, ethics, myth, philosophy, worship, and practice of a long-lived tradition. Recommended for academic and large public libraries. Printed Pages: 1128.

Edge of Faith

William Dalrymple

Seagull Books, 2009. First edition. Hardcover. New. Located on the West Coast of India along the Arabian Sea, Goa was liberated in 1961, after 450 years of Portuguese Rule. The ambivalence created by this transition of culture and political loyalty provides the backdrop for the work of Indian photographer Prabuddha Dasgupta in Edge of Faith. The 79 black-and-white photographs create an intimate and deeply personal portrait of a gentle and generous people, torn between their fidelity to a history of Portuguese faith and culture and their post-Independence Indian identity. Acclaimed travel writer William Dalrymple provides an accompanying text that explores both the history of Goa’s Catholic past and its struggle to deal with its multicultural, multireligious present. Edge of Faith captures Catholic Goa in a haunting but beautiful impasse—caught in a time warp between comforting nostalgia and a doubt-ridden, insecure future. Printed Pages: 140.

Journal of the Centre for Buddhist Studies Sri Lanka, Volume V, 2007

Bhikkhu K.L. Dhammajoti

Centre for Buddhist Studies, 2007. First edition. Softcover. New. 15 x 23 cm. The Abhidhamma theory of cognition is based on two basic principles of early Buddhist psychology. One is that mind is a process without an enduring substance. The other is that all psychological experience is a continnum of mental events. Accordingly cognition is not the immediate result of the contact between the sense organ and the sense object. Rather it’s the cumulative result of a continuum of cognitive events. The process begins from a simple sensory contact and proceeds gradually to the apprehension of the object. There is no self or subject behind or an agent directing the various mental activities. They take place naturally according to the principles of psychological order (citta-niyama), each stage in the continuum being conditioned by the immediately Buddhaghosa, after describing the process of cognition, makes this interesting observation: ‘There is no agent or director who, after the object has impinged on the sense-organ says: “You perform the function of attention or you perform the function according to their own law and the whole process is recognized as the law of the operation of the mind (citta-niyama). The momentary mental events themselves perform all the functions leading to cognition and their unity and coordination is entirely due to the laws of conditional relations. Printed Pages: 258.

Shari’a: Theory, Practice, Transformations

Wael B. Hallaq

Cambridge University Press, 2009. First edition. Softcover. New. 15 x 23 cm. In recent years, Islamic law, or Shari’a, has been appropriated as a tool of modernity in the Muslim world and in the West and has become highly politicised in consequence. Wael Hallaq’s magisterial overview of Shari’a sets the record straight by examining the doctrines and practices of Islamic law within the context of its history, and by showing how it functioned within pre-modern Islamic societies as a moral imperative. In so doing, Hallaq takes the reader on an epic journey tracing the history of Islamic law from its beginnings in seventh-century Arabia, through its development and transformation under the Ottomans, and across lands as diverse as India, Africa and South-East Asia, to the present. In a remarkably fluent narrative, the author unravels the complexities of his subject to reveal a love and deep knowledge of the law which will inform, engage and challenge the reader CONTENTS: ""Part I. The Pre-Modern Tradition: 1. The formative period 2. Legal theory: epistemology, language, and legal reasoning 3. Legal education and the politics of law 4. Law and society 5.

Database Marketing: Analyzing and Managing Customers

Byung-Do Kim,Robert C. Blattberg,Scott A. Neslin

New Age International (P) Limited, 2010. First edition. Softcover. New. Database marketing is at the crossroads of technology, business strategy, and customer relationship management. Enabled by sophisticated information and communication systems, today`s organizations have the capacity to analyze customer data to inform and enhance every facet of the enterprise-from branding and promotion campaigns to supply chain management to employee training to new product development. Based on decades of collective research, teaching, and application in the field, the authors present the most comprehensive treatment to date of database marketing, integrating theory and practice. Presenting rigorous models, methodologies, and techniques (including data collection, field testing, and predictive modeling), and illustrating them through dozens of examples, the authors cover the full spectrum of principles and topics related to database marketing. ``This is an excellent in-depth overview of both well-known and very recent topics in customer management models. It is an absolute must for marketers who want to enrich their knowledge on customer analytics.`` -Peter C. Verhoef, Professor of Marketing, Faculty of Economics and Business, University of Groningen ``A marvelous combination of relevance and sophisticated yet understandable analytical material. It should be a standard reference in the area for many years.`` -Don Lehmann, George E. Warren Professor of Business, Columbia Business School ``The title tells a lot about the book`s approach-though the cover reads, ``database,`` the content is mostly about customers and that`s where the real-world action is. Most enjoyable is the comprehensive story- in case after case-which clearly explains what the analysis and concepts really mean. This is an essential read for those interested in database marketing, customer relationship management and customer optimization.`` -Richard Hochhauser, President and CEO, Harte-Hanks, Inc. ``In this tour de force of careful scholarship, the authors canvass the ever expanding literature on database marketing.

Visvakarma: Examples of Indian Architecture, Sculpture, Painting, Handicraft

Ananda K. Coomaraswamy

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., 1978. First edition. Hardcover. New. 23 x 29 cm. Ananda K. Coomaraswamy has offered in this volume of Visvakarma one hundred illustrations of Indian sculpture, chosen without any predilection for creed, locus or time. They are placed in four sections entitled Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, Brahmanical Divinities, Men, Women and Nagas and Animals including Avatars. Each section has twenty-five plates. In the domain of Art, India was to the orient, what Greece was to the occident; it was the fountain-head of inspiration. The art of India was not confined to the skilled creation of objects that had form and beauty; that were of deep religious significance; that were to serve as instruments of propaganda for the pomp, pelf and power of some ruler; that were the products of unique minds obsessed by creative imagination; that mirrored the mode of dress, decoration, images and events of a particular moment in the broad span of time. It was something more. It was a conscious and deliberate attempt to portray the belief cherished by a broad spectrum of humanity that the material word is Maya, illusion; that the human soul is identical with Brahman-Tattvam Asi (Thou art that). It is the reason why the Indian artists ignored realistic representation of anatomy and proportion. They were bound by injunctions of code, custom and tradition. But this did not stifle their efforts in any way; for they were at full liberty with regards to the spiritual quality of their work. It is this bondage with restricted freedom that allowed them to give ""a sublimity, a monumental calm in which eternity itself echoed."" For instance, the dancing figure of Siva (plates XXX and XXXI) shows his great dance of destruction and re-creation of the universe. He is seen performing different actions simultaneously. With the flame, he destroys the cosmos; with the tiny drum, he taps the rhythm of creation into existence; with the uplifted hand, he stills all the dark forces; with the other hand which points to his toes, he offers refuge to all; with the right foot, he tramples the screaming dwarf who symbolizes this world; he has raised his left foot in the nadanta dance. All around and about him is the swirl of ceaseless turmoil and turbulence; his arms swing; his hairs are flying and in disarray; one of his ear-rings has vanished into the voids of space; yet his face is tranquil-a tranquility beyond description. It is the discipline of artistic technique that enabled the artist to depict the rhythm, tension and the discipline of the spirit. Printed Pages: 30.

Energy Infrastructure: Priorities, Constraints, and Strategies for India

Asian Development Bank

Oxford University Press, 2008. First edition. Hardcover. New. 14 x 21 cm. To sustain India’s growth graph in the medium and long-run requires commensurate increase in the supply of alternative forms of energy—electricity, nuclear, coal, oil, gas, as well as other fuels. Therefore, issues pertaining to energy security will continue to remain critical in India’s journey to attain development, prosperity, and equity. The term energy security essentially implies that (i) energy systems should be geared to meet the demand of households—both urban and rural—and commercial users at all times; (ii) availability of all forms of energy required for the smooth functioning of the economy should be ensured; and (iii) energy should be available at a reasonable price. A related and critical issue is that any future policy has to promote cleaner and more efficient technologies, adequate pollution control mechanisms, and explore cleaner sources of energy, so as to minimize costs to society associated with producing or consuming energy. The volume focuses on policy issues aimed at ensuring continuous availability of different forms of energy at an appropriate price reflecting social costs as opposed to private costs.

Psychology in Context (Third Edition)

Robin S. Rosenberg,Stephen M. Kosslyn

Pearson Education. 3rd edition. Softcover. New. With a focus on the constant interactions of events, this text helps students understand the foundations of the disciplines from the vantage points of the brain, the person, and the world (group). Through their own research, clinical work, and experiences as teachers, Stephen Kosslyn and Robin Rosenberg have found that exploring psychology from three integrated perspectives further enhances learning. Examining psychological concepts from the interactions of the brain (biological factors), the person (beliefs, desires, and feelings) and the world (social, cultural, and environmental factors) helps students organize and integrate topics within and across chapters and actively apply psychology to their lives. In the third edition, each chapter also closes with a “Review and Remember!” notetaking exercise that encourages students to jot down their own thoughts and memory devices alongside the author-provided summary.

Penguin Books India, 2010. First edition. Paperback. New. 15 X 23 cm. Of the Upanishads Osho says: ‘They are not religious scriptures. They are poetic expressions….They….don’t belong to any religion. They are the experiences of individuals sitting at the feet of their master….’ Drawing on the Adhyatma Upanishad, Osho offers new ways of dealing with the experience of life and speaks about how the truth can be uncovered by anyone willing to give up his ego. The other topics he delves deep into are the relationship between the master and the disciple and how mastery over the self can be achieved only when one is willing to giving up mastery itself.

Ada Plus Data Structures: An Object-Oriented Approach, (Second Edition)

John McCormick,Nell Dale

Viva Books Private Limited, 2008. 2nd edition. Softcover. New. 18 x 24 cm. Ada Plus Data Structures is the most up-to-date, student-friendly Ada text available. The text introduces and discusses such familiar topics as strings, sets, stacks, queues, lists, trees, graphs, and much more. The recurring theme throughout the text is modeling with levels of abstraction, presenting each class from three different perspectives: their specification, their abstraction, and their implementation. Using this approach, the authors stress computer science theory and software engineering principles including information hiding, data encapsulation, data abstraction, stepwise refinement, and visual aids. With its Object-Oriented presentation, real-world applications, and traditional Dale Pedagogy, Ada Plus Data Structures is a pleasure to read and learn from. • New and key features: Dale and McCormick provide an accessible introduction to object-oriented design methodologies, balanced with a clear presentation of traditional abstract data types, computer science theory, and software engineering practices • Unified Modeling Language ( UML) class diagrams and object-oriented approaches are used throughout the book • Expanded coverage of hashing • Reviews of principle Ada constructs are included within the text as a refresher for students • Includes the object.operation syntax as an alternative to the traditional package-operation syntax for invoking class operations • Introduces the Ada container class library • Many new chapter exercises and programming problems.

Rural Development in India, Vol. IV

K. R. Gupta

Atlantic Publishers & Distributors (P) Ltd., 2010. Hardcover. New. India’s growth story in various sectors—industry, services, mining, and power—particularly since the dawn of the new millennium, though impressive, has not been inclusive. Whereas urban areas have developed fast, the rural areas still lack the basic infrastructure of connectivity, marketing and adequate means of employment generation. Poverty remains a major issue with our huge population living in rural areas, particularly in BIMARU states of Bihar, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh. In addition to low income, problems of violent conflicts, food insecurity, illiteracy, ill health, unemployment, gender inequality, unhygienic living, etc. are various aspects of rural society. It is therefore necessary to analyse the prevailing conditions and draw strategies for rural development to make the country’s growth broadbased. The performance of agriculture sector influences the growth of India’s economy and it accounts for about 52 per cent of employment in the country. The rural sector is being increasingly seen as a potential source of domestic demand, which is likely to shape the future marketing strategies for goods and services. There is a strong case for a second Green Revolution encompassing diversification of agriculture, development of wasteland, capital expenditure growth, use of biotechnology and expansion of irrigation, besides value-addition in agriculture produce and greater attention to horticulture and floriculture. It is necessary to emphasize the need for genuinely empowering panchayats to plan and implement the National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme and make them accountable to their communities for efficient performance. The book contains articles from erudite scholars and experts in the field of rural development, who have deeply analysed the pertinent issues and made valuable suggestions thereon. It will prove very useful to the researchers and students of Economics, government executives concerned with the formulation and execution of policies for rural development, parliamentarians and legislators, and the common readers interested in rural development.

History and the Present

Partha Chatterjee & Anjan Ghosh (eds)

Orient BlackSwan, 2002. Hardcover. New. The essays in this volume bring together historians and anthropologists to reflect on the place of history and the historical within present-day conditions. The central focus here is on aspects of the popular, on the ways in which the popular relates to the scientific, the professional, the aesthetic, the religious, the legal, and the political. The essays represent a critique of the disciplinary practices of history. They share some of the impulses that had earlier produced movements such as ‘history from below’ as well as Subaltern Studies, which had also opened historiography to the domain of the popular. But this volume also reflects an urge to rethink the place of history in the present. Printed Pages: 292.
