♥ Book Title : Theory from the South
☯ Full Synopsis : "As nation-states in the Northern Hemisphere experience economic crisis, political corruption and racial tension, it seems as though they might be 'evolving' into the kind of societies normally associated with the 'Global South'. Anthropologists Jean and John Comaroff draw on their long experience of living in Africa to address a range of familiar themes - democracy, national borders, labour and capital and multiculturalism. They consider how we might understand these issues by using theory developed in the Global South. Challenging our ideas about 'developed' and 'developing' nations, Theory from the South provides new insights into key problems of our time."Article| Jean Comaroff, John L. Comaroff| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Vāsavadattā
☯ Full Synopsis : "This romance is one of the best examples of the artificial and ornate style in Sanskrit prose. The title is derived from that of a drama by Bhasa, the Suapnavasavadattam. Subandhu,s translator has genereously -- claimed for him a true melody in the long rolling compound, a sesquipedalian majesty which can never be equalled exept in Sanskrit, a lulling music in the alliteration, and a compact brevity in the paronomasias which are in most cases veritable gems of terseness and twofold appropriateness."Article| Subandhu, Louis Herbert Gray| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Media Worlds
☯ Full Synopsis : "This groundbreaking volume showcases the exciting work emerging from the ethnography of media, a burgeoning new area in anthropology that expands both social theory and ethnographic fieldwork to examine the way media—film, television, video—are used in societies around the globe, often in places that have been off the map of conventional media studies. The contributors, key figures in this new field, cover topics ranging from indigenous media projects around the world to the unexpected effects of state control of media to the local impact of film and television as they travel transnationally. Their essays, mostly new work produced for this volume, bring provocative new theoretical perspectives grounded in cross-cultural ethnographic realities to the study of media."Article| Faye D. Ginsburg, Lila Abu-Lughod, Brian Larkin| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Turnings
☯ Full Synopsis : "Through Dr Lal's refreshingly clear and powerful prose and sharply observed stories, we enter the inner world of Indo-Fijian feeling and aspiration. One universal that emerges with particular clarity in the Indo-Fijian experience is the ceaseless struggle to find community in a changing world, balancing the beauty of ritual and tradition against the transcendent value of education and modern rationality. The volume poses the question of how people draw upon historical memory and immediate circumstances to create a social world, and how that world can be shared with others in multicultural society. The answer seems to lie somewhere between history and poetry, as in Dr Lal's 'factions'."Article| Brij V. Lal| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Opportunities Missed, Opportunities Seized
☯ Full Synopsis : "The basic logic of preventive diplomacy is unassailable. Act early to prevent disputes from escalating; reduce tensions that could lead to war; deal with today's conflicts before they become tomorrow's crises. Yet as we look at the record of these first years of the post-Cold War era, it is quite mixed. There have been some preventive diplomacy successes and opportunities that have been seized by major powers and international organizations to help preserve and protect the peace. But there also have been other opportunities that have been missed, with some of the century's most deadly conflicts the result. This study examines ten major post-Cold War cases including Croatia-Bosnia, Rwanda, the Baltics, Russia-Ukraine, Macedonia, and North Korea_to assess the key factors contributing to both the success and failure of preventive diplomacy. The method of case study analysis employed is based on the work of Alexander L. George. Authors include both leading academics and prominent policy officials with first-hand knowledge."Article| Bruce W. Jentleson, Carnegie Commission on Preventing Deadly Conflict| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Same-Sex Love in India
☯ Full Synopsis : "Same-Sex Love in India presents a stunning array of writings on same-sex love from over 2000 years of Indian literature. Translated from more than a dozen languages and drawn from Hindu, Buddhist, Muslim, and modern fictional traditions, these writings testify to the presence of same-sex love in various forms since ancient times, without overt persecution. This collection defies both stereotypes of Indian culture and Foucault's definition of homosexuality as a nineteenth-century invention, uncovering instead complex discourses of Indian homosexuality, rich metaphorical traditions to represent it, and the use of names and terms as early as medieval times to distinguish same-sex from cross-sex love. An eminent group of scholars have translated these writings for the first time or have re-translated well-known texts to correctly make evident previously underplayed homoerotic content. Selections range from religious books, legal and erotic treatises, story cycles, medieval histories and biographies, modern novels, short stories, letters, memoirs, plays and poems. From the Rigveda to Vikram Seth, this anthology will become a staple in courses on gender and queer studies, Asian studies, and world literature."Article| R. Vanita, S. Kidwai| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : English Speaking and Grammar
☯ Full Synopsis : "Cromosys Publication's English Speaking and Grammar book is an optimal quality guide to the beginners as well as advanced learners to gain the knowledge of English language. It is an unmatchable unique book of its kind that guarantees your improvement. The lessons and study materials uniquely designed are based on my fifteen years of research in linguistic field. The text, audio and video are magnificently powerful to bring you into linguistic light. Since English is accepted as a global language, the people around the world have been sharpening their knowledge to be good in it. Sometimes, only working knowledge of it doesn't work, and you feel that there is a lot more to explore. The accurate and profound knowledge of this language, which was considered to be existing only in England and America in past, has influenced zillions of mind today, therefore I conceived the idea of making this book a guideline for those who want to be perfect in it. The significance of this book is that it is dynamic, systemic and blissful with abundance of pure and perfect set of rules that took a decade of time in preparation. One alone, being immaturely suggested, spend ages in reading literature, watching movies and listening to the audio which help them to imitate a little but not learn what in actual sense it is, and their never-ending process of Picasso Adventure collects some scattered information which is unworthy to knowledge enhancement, so the aspirants get lost in wilderness. Whether your intention is to travel abroad or plunge deep into your research, you have to be good in English to survive in today's world. Around eight years ago I went to the USA where I got a chance to get an exclusive training of English. I have been communicating with English-speaking people around the world while managing a team in several call centers, and in part time, I have been teaching this language globally with high exposure. So being able to understand linguistic science, I would like to assure you that the knowledge that you are going to get from this book will definitely sharpen your ability so that you can make your way of success without any hindrance."Article| Niranjan Jha| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : A Short History of Nearly Everything
☯ Full Synopsis : "One of the world’s most beloved and bestselling writers takes his ultimate journey -- into the most intriguing and intractable questions that science seeks to answer. In A Walk in the Woods, Bill Bryson trekked the Appalachian Trail -- well, most of it. In In A Sunburned Country, he confronted some of the most lethal wildlife Australia has to offer. Now, in his biggest book, he confronts his greatest challenge: to understand -- and, if possible, answer -- the oldest, biggest questions we have posed about the universe and ourselves. Taking as territory everything from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization, Bryson seeks to understand how we got from there being nothing at all to there being us. To that end, he has attached himself to a host of the world’s most advanced (and often obsessed) archaeologists, anthropologists, and mathematicians, travelling to their offices, laboratories, and field camps. He has read (or tried to read) their books, pestered them with questions, apprenticed himself to their powerful minds. A Short History of Nearly Everything is the record of this quest, and it is a sometimes profound, sometimes funny, and always supremely clear and entertaining adventure in the realms of human knowledge, as only Bill Bryson can render it. Science has never been more involving or entertaining. From the Hardcover edition."Article| Bill Bryson| Statement ..."
