Explaining Human Origins: Myth, Imagination and Conjecture, Wiktor Stoczkowski; Translated By Mary Turton
23 Explaining Human Origins: Myth, Imagination and Conjecture

Wiktor Stoczkowski; Translated By Mary Turton

Cambridge University Press, New Delhi, India, 2002, 0-521-65730-X / 9780521657303, First Edition, Paperback, New, 
Wiktor Stoczkowski, a palaeo-anthropologist, argues that the theories of human origins developed by archaeologists and physical anthropologists from the early nineteenth century to the present day are structurally similar to Western folk theories, and to the speculations of earlier philosophers. Reviewing a remarkable range of thinkers writing in a variety of European languages, he makes a convincing argument for this case. Even though the book criticises the lack of development in theories of human origins, its conclusion is optimistic about the power of the scientific approach to deliver more reliable theories - but only if the influences of popular discourse on its thinking are properly identified.

History of Ancient Indian Science Volume I: Botanical Science and Economic Growth. A Study of Forestry, Horticulture, Gardening and Plant Science, Lalta Prasad Pandey
27 History of Ancient Indian Science Volume I: Botanical Science and Economic Growth. A Study of Forestry, Horticulture, Gardening and Plant Science

Lalta Prasad Pandey

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, 1996, 81-215-0693-X / 9788121506939, First Edition, Hard Cover, New, New, 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
The scientific heritage of India has not been fully revealed and its contribution to the development of various stages of Indian civilization is yet to be adequately analysed by the modern generation of historians engaged in writing on the past of the country. Science and technology change the face of the economic spirit of the existing society influencing other aspects of cultural growth. Botanical science and technology and their origin and growth in India have been presented and analysed from this viewpoint in the present volume. This study is primarily based on Sanskrit sources, and Vrksayurveda of Surapala has been exhaustively used for the first time, besides Manasollasa of Somesvara and Upavanavinoda of the Sarngadhara-paddhati. It deals not only with the problems of the trees but also with various vegetables and flowers and throws much light on the art of gardening developed in ancient India. It discusses the meaning and concept of science and its relation to economic planning and development on the one hand and tries to trace the economic growth in ancient India on the other. It is hoped that this modest attempt would give a new direction to the students of history in making a new and dynamic assessment of the past. Printed Pages: 224. 002409

History of Science and Philosophy of Science, a primarily interdisciplinary study, deals with the historical and philosophical perspectives of science and explores the mutuality of the relations between the two disciplines. To present the study in a reader-friendly format, it has been divided into two parts, with the first volume (Part 6) dedicated to the ‘history?of science and the second volume (Part 7) to the ‘philosophy?of science. The first volume, History of Science and Philosophy of Science: A Historical Perspective of the Evolution of Ideas in Science, seeks to present a history of science where science is believed to proceed along with the operation of a number of mechanisms that are instrumental to its growth, thus making science a part of a creative culture. This part works out the relation not between history and the history of science, but between science and the history of science. Though the volume focuses mainly on physics and mathematics, it also includes essays on life sciences and consciousness studies. The order of essays is guided not by chronology but by a philosophical interpretation of the development of major reforms and revisions in the field of science both in India and abroad. Some authors have paid full attention to Indian science and its logic, while some others have preferred to deal with Western science. Presented in a fairly non-technical language and readily accessible even to non-specialists, these volumes will be of interest to researchers and well-informed general readers.

40 Local Cells, Global Science: The Rise of Embryonic Stem Cell Research in India

Aditya Bharadwaj and Peter Glasner

Routledge, London, UK, 2009, 0415396093 / 9780415396097, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 
The book examines for the first time the extent of transnational movements of tissue, stem cells, and expertise, in the developing governance framework of India. It documents the impact of local and global governance frames on the everyday conduct of research, by tracing the journey of ‘spare?human embryos in IVF clinics to public and private laboratories engaged in isolating stem cells for potential therapeutic application. The empirical research is informed by a comparative analysis of the ethical, religious and social issues in North America and Europe, and compared with other tissue and organ donations already prevalent in India. The discussion also examines the gender dimension as a potential site for exploitation in the sourcing of embryonic and other biogenic materials, and suggests that a moral economy has developed in which the ethical values of the global North support and encourage the donation of abundant and ethically ‘neutral?embryos by the South. Contents Acknowledgements 1. The local, the global, and the contextual: an introduction 2. Dis-locations: local cultures of cells, global transactions in science 3. Biosociality to bio-crossings: encounters with embryonic stem cell in India 4. Sacrificial gifts: infertile citizens and the moral economy of embryos 5. ‘Miraculous stem cells? the liminal third space and media rhetoric 6. One ethic fits all? Complexities in cross-cultural standardization, bioethics and regulatory protocols 7. Conclusion Notes Bibliography Index. Printed Pages: 148. 031504

43 Phycology (4th Edition)

Robert Edward Lee

Cambridge University Press, New Delhi, India, 2009, 0521141443 / 9780521141444, Fourth Edition, Paperback, New, 247 x 174 Mm 
Phycology is the study of algae, the primary photosynthetic organisms in freshwater and marine food chains. As a food source for zooplankton and filter-feeding shellfish, the algae are an extremely important group. Since the publication of the first edition in 1981, this textbook has established itself as a classic resource on phycology. This revised edition maintains the format of previous editions, whilst incorporating the latest information from nucleic acid sequencing studies. Detailed life-history drawings of algae are presented alongside information on the cytology, ecology, biochemistry, and economic importance of selected genera. Phycology is suitable for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students following courses in phycology, limnology or biological oceanography. Emphasis is placed on those algae that are commonly covered in phycology courses, and encountered by students in marine and freshwater habitats. Contents Preface to the first edition Part I: 1. Introduction Introduction Part II. The Prokaryotic Algae: 2. Cyanobacteria Part III. Evolution of the Chloroplast: 3. Glaucophyta and Chloroarchnion 4. Rhodophyta 5. Chlorophyta Part IV.
