3 An Encyclopaedia of Indian Archaeology, 2 vols. 4t. Vol I: Subject Vol II: Gazetteer of Explored and Excavated Sites in India

A. Ghosh (ed.)

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, 2013, 8121500877 / 9788121500876, Reprint, Hardcover, New, New, 23 Cms x 29 Cms 
An Encyclopaedia of Indian Archaeology is a significant reference work on archaeology in India. It is an authoritative work of permanent value in which the knowledge and expertise of Indian archaeologists from the Archaeological Survey of India, universities and other institutes have been pooled together under the editorship of the late A. Ghosh, former Director-General of the Archaeological Survey of India. The Encyclopaedia has been planned in an ambitious manner; it is not a mere alphabetical listing of entries with sketchy information on topics. Volume I, which deals with certain broad subjects relating to Indian Archaeology, is divided into sections and subsections containing independent and self-contained essays. For example, in the chapter on 'Cultures', one can find detailed information on various cultures in India; the chapter on 'Basis of Dating' contains articles on archaeological dating, archaeomagnetic dating, C14 radio-carbon dating, numismatic dating, palaeographic and epigraphic dating, thermoluminiscent dating, etc. For those interested in getting further information on the subjects and in looking into the original sources and references, each entry also carries an exhaustive bibliography. The volume II is the Gazetteer. It contains basic data and information on all the explored and excavated sites in India along with reference to published reports/or notices on each. The Encyclopaedia is thus an authoritative reference book not only for the specialists, students and research workers in the field of archaeology, but also for all those who wish to study India's ancient past.

Elsevier, New York, USA, 2007, 044452746X / 9780444527462, First Edition, Hardcover, New, 
Carbohydrates are an important part of life and are present in bacteria, fungi, viruses, yeast, plants, animals and humans. The rapid expansion of chemistry and glycobiology over the last few years has provided many new, imaginative and efficient techniques which provide further insight into the structures and biological interactions of carbohydrates and glycostructures. This work has a very broad scope and will appeal to a wide audience as it explores the interactions between biology, chemistry and molecular biology towards understanding, synthesising and developing glycoproteins, glycolipids, proteoglyans and polysaccharides, which are important molecules in nature for controlling health and disease and food and feed. Glycocompounds reviewed include: oligosaccharides, polysaccharides, glycoproteins, glycolipids, glycoconjugates, lectins, cellulose, pectins and starch. Topics covered include: spectroscopy, nomenclature, structures, synthesis, biosynthesis, molecular interactions, degradation, biochemistry, glycobiology, glycotherapeutics and diseases.

The present work on backward castes critically examines and analyzes history of reservation policies and programmes for backward castes from the beginning in different states, recommendations given by various committees and commissions etc. The book also focuses on the after effects of announcement of Mandal recommendations and development after Mandal Judgement (1992). The following are the highlights of the book. The first volume discusses reservation concerning the origin and rational behind its history, problems faced by backward castes in getting recognition for the purpose of reservation for a long period before and after independence. The second volume discusses the recommendations made by various committees and commissions in states and two important commissions set up by the government after independence. The third volume examines compulsions under which the National Front Government announced 27 per cent reservation for other backward classes and compiled views of cross sections of people such as lawyers, jurists, journalists and social-scientists etc. Volume IV discusses that the backward castes have been striving hard to get reservation benefit in education under article 15[4] and in employment under article 16[4] of the constitution of India for which they had to seek interventions in different high courts and the Supreme Court of India.

All will find it a very readable and attractive reference source for all manner of aspects of natural history.':the Phoenix An immense amount of information on India's teeming plant and animal life has accumulated since the foundation of the Bombay Natural History Society in 1883, and much is recorded in the thousands of pages of its Journal. This one-volume Encyclopedia of Indian Natural History is written by experts and non-experts in an unambiguous, easy style. No other comparable work on the Indian sub-continent has so far been published. The Encyclopedia covers the natural history of India, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Burma, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. It illustrates the complexity of the organisms living in this region, with all their adaptations, mutual interdependence and evolutionary history. It presents: BL 550 articles by 90 contributors encompassing 21 subject categories, including mammals, birds, reptiles, fish, amphibians, insects, flowers and plants BL entries arranged in single alphabetical sequence, providing details of habitat, mating and feeding behaviour, appearance and physiological functions; geographic and evolutionary concepts BL all articles edited by well-known authorities in their field; for example, Salim Ali has edited the entries on birds, K.C. Sahni those on botany, and T.J. Roberts those on mammals BL 800 black-and-white illustrations interspersed with the text, 40 pages of photographs, 32 of which are in full colour This Encyclopedia will appeal to anyone curious about the richness and variety of life on the sub-continent, and will create a better understanding of our own responsibility to preserve it for the future.
