Description:
London: Flamingo, June 1999. Trade Paperback. New. Not damaged. No remainder mark. xxii + 385 pages. As he searched for evidence of Kali Yug, the "age of darkness" predicted by an ancient Hindu cosmology in a final epoch of strife and corruption, Dalrymple encountered a region that thrilled and surprised him. Venturing to places rarely visited by foreigners, he presents compelling portraits of a diverse range of figures. His love for the subcontinent comes across in every page, which makes its chronicles of political corruption, ethnic violence and social disintegration all the more poignant. The result is a dark yet vibrant travelogue, and a unique look at a region that continues to be marked by rapid change and unlimited possibilities as it struggles to reconcile the forces of modernity and tradition.Contents: Introduction -- The North. The age of Kali ; In the kingdom of Avadh ; The city of widows ; Warrior queen: the Rajmata of Gwalior ; East of Eton -- In Rajasthan. The sad tale of Bahveri Devi… Read More

Minneapolis: Milkweed Editions, March 1995. Trade Paperback. First Paperback Edition / full number line. Very Good. Interior pristine. Spine straight, tight and uncreased. Edges foxed. Covers rubbed. 317 pages. Feroza Ginwalla, a pampered, protected 16-year-old Pakistani girl, is sent to America by her parents, who are alarmed by the fundamentalism overtaking Pakistan - and their daughter. Hoping that a few months with her uncle, an MIT grad student, will soften the girl's rigid thinking, they get more than they bargained for: Feroza, enthralled by American culture and her new freedom, insists on staying. A bargain is struck, allowing Feroza to attend college with the understanding that she will return home and marry well. As a student in a small western town, Feroza's perceptions of America, her homeland, and herself begin to alter. When she falls in love with and wants to marry a Jewish American, her family is aghast. Feroza realizes just how far she has come - and wonders how much further she can… Read More

Description:
Ahmedabad/Middletown, NJ: Mapin Publishing Pvt. Ltd./Grantha, May 1992. Hardcover. Yellow cloth over boards. Gilt lettering to spine. Fine book in a Fine jacket. Interior pristine. Spine straight and tight. Jacket clean and bright. No remainder mark. Not clipped. Suitable for gifting. 178 pages. 154 color photographs. 10.5 x 10.5 x 0.7 Inches. The dividing line between art and craft in Tamil Nadu is not easily discernible. With an uninterrupted classical heritage, its craft forms were transformed into works of art - the village terracottas became the great bronzes, the wood carvings became splendid monuments in stone. Unlike other parts of India, Tamilnadu's geographic location in the far south protected it from extraneous influences and made for a certain insularity of culture which strengthened the styles from within.

New York: Dover Publications, June 1983. Trade Paperback. Very Good. Interior unmarked. Spine straight and tight with reading creases. Light edgewear. Not from a library. No remainder mark. x+468 pages.

Gandhi's nonviolent protest movement, Satyagraha (satya = true, agraha = firmness), came to stand, like its creator, as a moral principle and a rallying cry. This is Gandhi's story of the path to his vision of Satyagraha and human dignity. Gandhi made scrupulous truth-telling a religion. His simply narrated account of boyhood in Gujarat, marriage at age 13, legal studies in England, and growing desire for purity and reform has the force of a man extreme in all things. He details his gradual conversion to vegetarianism and ahimsa (non-violence) and the state of celibacy (brahmacharya, self-restraint) that became one of his more arduous spiritual trials. In the political realm he outlines the beginning of Satyagraha in South Africa and India, with accounts of the first Indian fasts and protests, his… Read More

Lev is a man who has come down in the world. Formerly a Russian biological weapons scientist, he is now a chauffeur in "that new Russia where physicists wash windows and engineers drive trams". So he decides to take his somewhat lethal knowledge abroad; to offer his services to a foreign government. But on the way from the airport his taxi is stopped and robbed. It is in this helpless state, alone and adrift in Delhi, that Lev meets Maya. Beautiful, ferocious and utterly original, Maya has been waiting for a man like Lev to walk into her life. Briefly they come together and Lev steps into the marvelous world that is Maya. But then something terrible happens - something for which the Russian scientist is blamed. The Brainfever Bird is an exquisite love story, a tale of… Read More

Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, November 1989. First Edition. Trade Paperback. As New. Not from a library. No remainder mark. Not clipped. xx + 251 pages.From the beginning of European trade and conquest overseas, Europeans have known they died from the effect of the strange "climate." Later, they came to understand that it was disease, not climate, that killed, but the fact remained that every trading voyage, every military expedition beyond Europe, had its price in European lives lost. For European soldiers in the tropics at the beginning of the nineteenth century, this added cost in deaths from disease--the "relocation cost"--meant a death rate at least twice that of soldiers who stayed home. This book is partly a statistical exposition of the changing death rates of European Algeria, the British West Indies, and southern India--by cause of death from disease--set against the comparable figures for those who stayed at home in France or Great Britain. About two-thirds of the book is devoted… Read More

A collection of essays about an ancient civilization's reawakening to the spirit and potential of its youth. The essays range over subjects as varied as panchayati raj, national competitiveness, and the sacred and philosophical concerns of the average Indian consequent to India's entry into the age of liberation. While India may never roar ahead like the Asian tigers, Das argues, it will advance like a wise elephant, moving steadily and surely, pausing occasionally to reflect on its past and to enjoy the journey. Divided into three sections, the book first establishes a context for the changes that have occurred, and then assesses how Indians have changed or not changed in their public and private lives. As he sweeps over the major political, social and economic developments, he does not forget to examine the individual beliefs… Read More
