By Michael Jackson

Arrow/Random House India, 2010. Softcover. New. Moonwalk is the only book about his life that Michael Jackson ever wrote. It chronicles his humble beginnings in the Midwest, his early days with the Jackson 5, and his unprecedented solo success. Giving absolutely unrivalled insight into the King of Pop’s life, it details his songwriting process for hits like Beat It, Rock With You, Billie Jean, and We Are the World; describes how he developed his signature dance style, including the Moon Walk; and opens the door to his very private personal relationships with his family, including sister Janet, and stars like Diana Ross, Berry Gordy, Marlon Brando, Quincy Jones, Paul McCartney, and Brooke Shields. At the time of its original publication in 1988, MOONWALK broke the fiercely guarded barrier of silence that surrounded Michael Jackson. Candidly and courageously, Jackson talks openly about his wholly exceptional career and the crushing isolation of his fame, as well as the unfair rumors that have surrounded it. MOONWALK is illustrated with rare photographs from Jackson family albums and Michael’s personal photographic archives, as well as a drawing done by Michael exclusively for the book. It reveals and celebrates, as no other book can, the life of this exceptional and beloved musician."" Printed Pages: 0. NA


Mughal Land Revenue Apparatus: Collected Works of Prof. B R Grover, Vol. V

By Amrita Grover, Dr Anju Grover Chaudhary & Dr J C Dua (eds)

Low Price Publications, 2011. Hardcover. New. This Volume, though dealing with the administrative units of the Mughal Empire, is a critical study of the entire Mughal land revenue apparatus. The Papers presented in this Volume give a comprehensive picture of the administrative jurisdiction, duties of the officials and the details of the working of the land revenue administration based on an in-depth studty of the original Persian, English, Urdu and other sources found in different libraries and Archives in India and abroad. Keeping in view that the success of the fiscal policy of the State rests primarily on the administrative apparatus and the working of the land revenue administration, Professor Grover has made a tremendous contribution in this regard by assessing the working of the various adminstrative and revenue officials. An important aspect of the administrative jurisdiction discussed in these Papers pertains to the changes in the territorial circles and functions of the local officials that Professor Grover meticulously highlighted in his writings. Moreover, his writings reflect that there was a real need for a complete re-orientation of the existing theories and viewpoints to better understand the detailed workings of the Mughal land revenue administration. With a new perspective on the administration of the territorial jurisdictions as well as the duties of important functionaries mentioned above, this volume should be of tremendous value to the students/scholars of medieval Indian history.

The Temporary Bride: A Memoir of Love and Food in Iran

By Jennifer Klinec

Virago/Hachette, 2014. First edition. Softcover. New. 13 x 20 cm. A relationship was a mathematical formula: the correct variables of age, beauty, morality and finances were entered and the output was a successful, peaceful marriage. It couldn`t be, therefore, that their Iranian son could feel desire for someone six years his senior,someone who didn`t come to him pure and untouched. I was an amusing visitor from another world and soon enough I should return to it, fading quietly into an anecdote ... In her thirties, Jennifer Klinec abandons a corporate job to launch a cooking school from her London flat. Raised in Canada to Hungarian-Croatian parents, she has already travelled to countries most people are fearful of, in search of ancient recipes. Her quest leads her to Iran where, hair discreetly covered and eyes modest, she is introduced to a local woman who will teach her the secrets of the Persian kitchen. Vahid, her son, is suspicious of the strange foreigner who turns up in his mother`s kitchen; he is unused to seeing an independent woman. But a compelling attraction pulls them together and then pits them against harsh Iranian laws and customs. Getting under the skin of one of the most complex and fascinating nations on earth, The Temporary Bride is a soaring story of being loved, being fed, and the struggle to belong. Printed Pages: 212.

Lady Nugent’S East India Journal

By Ashley L. Cohen

Oxford University Press. First edition. Hardcover. New. In 1811, Maria Nugent left her four young children behind in England to accompany her husband, General George Nugent, on his posting as commander-in-chief in India. After a dizzying six months at the head of Calcutta society, the couple embarked on a 14-month tour of the British military stations in northern India, a journey that took them to the very edge of the imperial frontier. On these travels, Lady Nugent met a series of extraordinary figures from Indian history including Mir Jafar’s widow, Munni Begum; the Indian grandmother of a British prime minister, the Begum Johnson; and the infamous adventuress and ruthless military leader, the Begum Samru. In Delhi, she enjoyed an audience with the Mughal Emperor, and in the royal zenana she was entertained by his wives and daughters, who were themselves politically astute women. An account of Lady and General Nugent’s remarkable journey across colonial India, this critical edition contextualizes Lady Nugent’s East India Journal in the history of India and the British Empire, and the tradition of travel writing. It offers a window into the rarely glimpsed intimate social and domestic worlds of colonial households in British India, and also connects and compares Lady Nugent’s time in India with her earlier voyage to Jamaica recorded in her West India journal.

Patriot: The Unique Indian Leader Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose

By Manwati Arya

Lotus Press Publishers & Distributors, 2008. First edition. Hardcover. New. It is now fairly well known that Clement Attlee regarded the I.N.A. as a primary reason for the British to leave India in 1947 in a hurry, so it is unfortunate that Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose`s contribution to the freedom of India is not suitable recognized, and even the mystery of his death is being totally ignored. Sixty years have passed and it is time that we must do justice to this exhilarating chapter of contemporary Indian history. This book tries to serve this purpose to an extent, about which Lt. Col. Lakshmi Sahgal writes: ""My colleague of the I.N.A. days in Burma, Lt. Manwati Arya ((nee Panday)... was introduced to Netaji in Rangoon by me... Her book is based on her personal experiences of him, portraying an authentic picture of his personality, his nature, and above all, the human aspect of his life, including his special consideration for women, comprising half of the nation`s strength. `She has seen him at work in the headquarters of his Government in Rangoon, in the war-time hazardous long journey from Rangoon to Maymyo traveling together with him including his entourage and a small contingent of the Rani Jhansi Regiment and also at the Advance Headquarters in the midst Printed Pages: 248.

""The year 1857 was a unique moment of inspiration and awakening in India`s history which evoked the soul of the nation to oppose alien rule. The revolt was a social revolution and yet also contained the seeds of political nationalism. Its emotional and ideological ramifications and reactions varied across regions, even among the so-called collaborators there was no uncritical or unconditional acceptance of colonial rulers. The revolt was thus a turning point in the evolution of the `idea of India`. The aim has been to make available, authenticated original sources for the interest of the general readers and also for scholars and researchers so that they can undertake more in-depth studies on this subject of profound importance on this occasion of 150 year of celebration of this great event.
