A History of Japan, 1582-1941: Internal and External Worlds, L.M. Cullen
5 A History of Japan, 1582-1941: Internal and External Worlds

L.M. Cullen

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 2003, 0-521-52918-2 / 9780521529181, First Edition, Paperback, New, 
This book offers a distinctive overview of the internal and external pressures responsible for the making of modern Japan. L. M. Cullen argues that Japanese policies and fears have often been caricatured in western accounts which have viewed the expansion of the west in an unduly positive light. He shows that Japan before 1854, far from being in progressive economic and social decay or political crisis, was on balance a successful society led by rational policymakers. He also shows how when an external threat emerged after 1793 the country became on balance more open rather than more oppressive and that Japan displayed remarkable success in negotiation with the western powers in 1853?8. In the twentieth century, however, with the 1889 constitution failing to control the armed forces and western and American interests encroaching in Asia and the Pacific, Japan abandoned realism and met her nemesis in China and the Pacific. Contents 1. Introduction: Japanís internal and external worlds, 1582?941; 2. Japan and its Chinese and European worlds, 1582?689; 3. The Japanese economy, 1688?789; 4. An age of stability: Japanís internal world in perspective, 1709?783; 5. Prosperity amid crises, 1789?853; 6. Sakoku under pressure: the gaiatsu of the 1850s and 1860s; 7. Fashioning a state and a foreign policy, 1868?919; 8. From peace to war, 1919?1. Printed Pages: 376 with 8 maps. 008714

A History of Saudi Arabia, Madawi al-Rasheed
6 A History of Saudi Arabia

Madawi al-Rasheed

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 2002, 0-521-64412-7 / 9780521644129, First Edition, Paperback, New, 
Saudi Arabia is a wealthy and powerful country which wields influence in the West and across the Islamic world. Yet it remains a closed society. Its history in the twentieth century is dominated by the story of state formation. After the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, Ibn Saíud fought a long campaign to bring together a disparate people from across the Arabian peninsula. In 1932 the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia was born. Madawi al-Rasheed traces its extraordinary history from the age of emirates in the nineteenth century, through the 1990 Gulf War, to the present day. She fuses chronology with analysis, personal experience with oral histories, and draws on local and foreign documents to illuminate the social and cultural life of the Saudis. This is a rich and rewarding book which will be invaluable to students, and to all those trying to understand the enigma of Saudi Arabia. Contents Introduction; 1. Society and politics (1744?818 and 1824?1); 2. The emerging state (1902?918); 3. Control and loyalty; 4. The politics of dissent (1953?3); 5. From affluence to austerity (1973?0); 6. The Gulf War and its aftermath (1990?000); 7. Narratives of the state, narratives of the people; Conclusions. Printed Pages: 274 with 8 half-tones, 3 tables, 2 maps, and 3 genealogical tables. 008716

12 A Moral Reckoning: Muslim Intellectuals in Nineteenth-century Delhi

Mushirul Hasan

Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2005, 0-19-567238-0 / 9780195672381, First Edition, Hard Cover, New, New, 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
How did prominent Muslim intellectuals in nineteenth-century Delhi construct Islam? How did they understand themselves as Muslims and as Indians living in British India? What paths did they embark upoin in their attempts to negotiate with the government? What was the place of adab and sharif culture before and after 1857? Existing studies on Delhi have neglected the history of ideas. This work, the first of its kind, illumines the little-known world of men of letters, for the most part teachers at the Delhi College. No one has surpassed them in their capacity to recover an epoch's intellectual tendencies. Zakaullah, the historian, Nazir Ahmad, the novelist, or Mirza Ghalib, the poet, present readers with a kadeidoscope of life around them, bringing alive the society of their time better than any academic construction could achieve. The author's own lively narrative, interspersed with Urdu verses, evokes a sense of the colour and charm characteristic of city life in the ni neteenth century. The uniqueness of this scholarly volume lies in the fact that it looks at the attitudes and behaviour of literary and historical figures living through the 1857 upheaval, a reappriasal fo their culture and identity, and, above all, the impact of their thinking and activism on contemporary society. What is more, A Moral Reckoning reveals how many sections of Delhi's Muslim intelligentsia built bridges of understanding between religious communities and responded to the conditions of modern life with a strong and universalistic component in defining the Indian Muslim. In his book, From Pluralism to Separatism: Qasbas in Colonial Awadh (OUP, 2004), Hasan found similar processes at work. This book provides the kinds of perspectives the social scientist will find helpful in understanding corss-cultural influences, and the place of pluralist and non-sectarian ideologies in a local milieu. It will interest a wide cross section of historians, political scienti sts, and sociologists. Printed Pages: 329. 011382

31 Art and Architecture: Remains in the Western Terai Region of Nepal

Terai region of Lumbini Zone situated between Narayani and Rapti rivers is an important site for the Buddhist as well as Archaeologist. This region was associated with the Sakyas and Koliya at Kapilvastu and Ramagrama (Devadaha) respectively in ancient period. Lumbini, the birth place of Lord Buddha, Kapilvastu, capital town of Sakyas, Ramagrama (Devadaha), maternal house of Buddha, and other ancient archaeological sites are located in this region. This book throws light on history, archaeological sites, identification of ancient Buddhist sites, especially Lumbini, Kapilvastu and Ramagrama, art, architecture and touristic importance of the region. The book contains geography and history of the region in brief and excavated and explored sites from where a number of art-remains has been obtained in course of archaeological activities. In the fourth chapter various Buddhist texts, excavated reports, versions of eminent scholars and Chinese account have been discussed to identify the ancient capital town of Kapilvastu. The evidences suggested that this region along with some portion of North-India, including Ganawaria and Piparahawa, had been a part of the ancient Kapilvastu. In the fifth chapter, the art-remains, viz. stone sculptures, other stone objects, humans and animals terracotta figurines, other terracotta objects, seals and sealings, coins, potteries etc. are incorporated. The result of the analysis of terracotta figurines has been incorporated here, highlighting the origin, typology and stylistic evolution of the principal forms, their techniques and contexts. This helps us to place the changing art forms and style from the pre-Mauryan to Pala-Sena periods in proper perspective. The earliest figurines are related to the female group. Terracotta trading and industries associated with them were similar to the contemporaneous sites in North-India, specially Hastinapur, Ahichchhatra, Kausambi, Taxila, Sohagaura and Arikamedu. On the basis of these sites relative dating has been adopted in the region. Pottery of various traditions, e.g. P.G.W., N.B.P. and Red wares were also discovered which helped us in fixing the chronology. The book goes into a deep study of archaeological sites and art-remains which helps for preservation and conservation to the authorities in future. Photographs, drawings and maps have been included to make the volume more authentic, informative and attractive. Printed Pages: 523. 007744

Aspects of Empire in Achaemenid Sardis, Elspeth R.M. Dusinberre
32 Aspects of Empire in Achaemenid Sardis

Elspeth R.M. Dusinberre

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 2003, 0-521-81071-X / 9780521810715, First Edition, Hard Cover, Brand New, Brand New, 20 Cms x 26 Cms 
Elspeth R. M. Dusinberre proposes a new approach to understanding the Achaemenid empire based on her study of the regional capital, Sardis. This study uses archaeological, artistic and textual sources to demonstrate that the two-hundred year Persian presence in this city had a profound impact on local social structures, revealing the regionís successful absorption, both ideological and physical, into the Persian Empire. During this period, Sardis was a centre of burgeoning creativity and vitality, where a polyethnic elite devised a new culture - inspired by Iranian, Greek and local Lydian traditions - that drew on and legitimated imperial ideology. The non-elite absorbed and adapted multiple aspects of this new culture to create a wholly new profile of what it meant to be Sardian. As well as successfully bringing together current information on the Achaemenids, this book is also an excellent contribution to empire studies. Contents 1. Sardis in the Achaemenid empire; 2. Textual sources and the effects of empire; 3. The urban structure of Achaemenid Sardis: monuments and meaning; 4. The urban structure of Achaemenid Sardis: sculpture and society; 5. Inscriptions: Sardians in their own words; 6. Mortuary evidence: dead and living societies; 7. Personal signifiers: Sealstones; 8. Achaemenid bowls: ceramic assemblages and the non-elite; 9. Conclusion: Imperialism and Achaemenid Sardis. Printed Pages: 342. 009457

45 Colonializing Agriculture: The Myth of Punjab Exceptionalism

Mridula Mukherjee

Sage Publications, New Delhi, India, 2005, 0761934057 / 9780761934059, First Edition, Paperback, New, 6 x 9 Inches 
This book is the first comprehensive study of the impact of colonialism on the agriculture of this very important region which, apart from the Pakistani and Indian provinces of Punjab, included the present day Indian provinces of Haryana and Himachal Pradesh. Making extensive use of data culled from government archives and private papers in India and Britain, as well as from village surveys, farm accounts and family budgets, the author argues that Punjab was by no means an idyllic land of prosperous peasant proprietors. She maintains that it was also the land of big feudal landlords, rack-rented tenants, and struggling small-holders, who were forced to enlist in the army or migrate to enable their families to pay government taxes and to repay debts. Comparing Punjab with its supposed polar-opposite, the eastern region of Bengal and Bihar, Mridula Mukherjee demonstrates that Punjab too had begun to exhibit features typical of colonial under-development, such as stagnation of productive forces, intensification of semi-feudal relations, forced commercialisation and lack of capital investment in agriculture. The green revolution therefore was not the result of a continuity but actually because of a break with the colonial past. Printed Pages: 244. 013338
