Cambodian Buddhism: History and Practice, Ian Harris
10 Cambodian Buddhism: History and Practice

Ian Harris

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, 2010, 8121512174 / 9788121512176, First Indian Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 16 x 24 Cm 
The study of Cambodian religion has long been hampered by a lack of easily accessible scholarship. This impressive new work by Ian Harris thus fills a major gap and offers English-language scholars a booklength, up-to-date treatment of the religious aspects of Cambodian culture. Beginning with a coherent history of the presence of religion in the country from its inception to the present day, the book goes on to furnish insights into the distinctive nature of Cambodia's important yet overlooked manifestation of Theravada Buddhist tradition and to show how it reestablished itself following almost total annihilation during the Pol Pot period. Historical sections cover the dominant role of tantric Mahayana concepts and rituals under the last great king of Angkor, Jayavarman VII (1181c. 1220); the rise of Theravada traditions after the collapse of the Angkorian civilization; the impact of foreign influences on the development of the nineteenth-century monastic order; and politicized Buddhism and the Buddhist contribution to an emerging sense of Khmer nationhood. The Buddhism practiced in Cambodia has much in common with parallel traditions in Thailand and Sri Lanka, yet there are also significant differences. The book concentrates on these and illustrates how a distinctly Cambodian Theravada developed by accommodating itself to premodern Khmer modes of thought. Following the overthrow of Prince Sihanouk in 1970, Cambodia slid rapidly into disorder and violence. Later chapters chart the elimination of institutional Buddhism under the Khmer Rouge and its gradual reemergence after Pol Pot, the restoration of the monastic order's prerevolutionary institutional forms, and the emergence of contemporary Buddhist groupings.

14 Gandhi: A Spiritual Biography

Arvind Sharma

Hachette India, Gurgaon, India, 2013, 9788350097144, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 14.5 x 22.5 Cm 
In his Autobiography, Gandhi wrote, What I want to achieve what I have been striving and pining to achieve these thirty years is self-realization, to see God face to face. All that I do by way of speaking and writing and all my ventures in the political field are directed to this same end.' While hundreds of biographies and histories have been written about Gandhi (1869 - 1948), nearly all of them have focused on the national, political, social, economic, educational, ecological or familial dimensions of his life. Very few in recounting how Gandhi led his country to political freedom, have viewed his struggle primarily as a search for spiritual liberation. Shifting the focus to the understudied subject of Gandhis spiritual life, Arvind Sharma retells the story of Gandhis life through this lens. Illuminating unsuspected dimensions of Gandhis inner world and uncovering their surprising connections with his outward actions, Sharma explores the eclectic religious atmosphere in which Gandhi was raised, his belief in karma and rebirth, his conviction that morality and religion are synonymous, his attitudes toward tyranny and freedom and perhaps most important, the mysterious source of his power to establish new norms of human conduct. This book enlarges our understanding of one of historys most profoundly influential figures, a man whose trust in the power of the spirit helped liberate millions. Printed Pages: 264. 037979

20 How Asia Works: Success and Failure in the World's Most Dynamic Region

Joe Studwell

Hachette India, Gurgaon, India, 2013, 1846682428 / 9781846682421, First Edition, Paperback, New, 15 x 23 Cm 
A provocative look at what has worked and what hasn't in East Asian economics. Until the catastrophic economic crisis of the late 1990s, East Asia was perceived as a monolithic success story. But heady economic growth rates masked the most divided continent in the world one half the most extraordinary developmental success story ever seen, the other half a paper tiger. Joe Studwell explores how policies ridiculed by economists created titans in Japan, Korea and Taiwan, and are now behind the rise of China, while the best advice the West could offer sold its allies in south-east Asia down the economic river. The first book to offer an Asia-wide deconstruction of success and failure in economic development, Studwell's latest work is provocative and iconoclastic and sobering reading for most of the world's developing countries. How Asia Works is a must-read book that packs powerful insights about the world's most misunderstood continent. Printed Pages: 322. 037899

21 I am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and was Shot by the Taliban

Malala Yousafzai with Christina Lamb

Hachette India, Gurgaon, India, 2013, 0297870920 / 9780297870920, First Edition, Paperback, New, 15 x 23 Cm 
I guess there is inspiration just about everywhere it is to you where you choose to find it and stand up for what you believe in. Malala did that. She stood up for what she believed in and was shot by the Taliban. Call it a miracle or a game of fate she survived the shooting. She lived and she tells her story in her book, I am Malala with Christina Lamb. The book could very well have become sentimental. However, Malala does not let it. She focuses not only her life story but also about what she believes in which is Education for girls and women and how that can change the world. The book is about how to not give up hope and stand in the face of adversity, for what you believe in. I am Malala is not just about one girl it is about one sixteen year old girl who stood up perhaps for everyone else as well, who stood up for her basic right to education. When the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley, one girl spoke out. Malala Yousafzai refused to be silenced and fought for her right to an education. On Tuesday 9 October 2012, she almost paid the ultimate price. Shot in the head at point blank range while riding the bus home from school, few expected her to survive. Instead, Malala's miraculous recovery has taken her on an extraordinary journey from a remote valley in Northern Pakistan to the halls of the United Nations in New York. At sixteen, she has become a global symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest ever nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize. I Am Malala is the remarkable tale of a family uprooted by global terrorism of the fight for girls education and of Malala's parents fierce love for their daughter in a society that prizes sons. It will make you believe in the power of one person's voice to inspire change in the world. Printed Pages: 288. 037981

Print and Power: Confucianism, Communism, and Buddhism in the Making of Modern Vietnam, Shawn Frederick McHale
32 Print and Power: Confucianism, Communism, and Buddhism in the Making of Modern Vietnam

Shawn Frederick McHale

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India, 2010, 8121512166 / 9788121512169, First Indian Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 16 x 24 Cm 
In this ambitious and path-breaking book, Shawn McHale challenges long held views that define modern Vietnamese history in terms of anticolonial nationalism and revolution. McHale argues instead for a historiography that does not overstress either the role of politics in general or Communism in particular. Using a wide range of sources from Vietnam, France, and the United States, many of them previously unexploited, he shows how the use of printed matter soared between 1920 and 1945 and in the process transformed Vietnamese public life and shaped the modern Vietnamese consciousness. Print and Power begins with an overview of Vietnam's lively public spheres, bringing debates from Europe and the rest of Asia to Vietnamese studies with nuance and sophistication. It examines the impact of the French colonial state on Vietnamese society as well as Vietnamese and East Asian understandings of public discourse and public space. Popular taste, rather than revolutionary or national ideology, determined to a large extent what was published, with limited intervention by the French authorities. A vibrant but hierarchical public realm of debate existed in Vietnam under authoritarian colonial rule. The work goes on to contest the impact of Confucianism on premodern and modern Vietnam and, based on materials never before used, provides a radically new perspective on the rise of Vietnamese communism from 1929 to 1945. Novel interpretations of the Nghe Tinh soviets (1930-1931), the first major communist uprising in Vietnam, and Vietnamese communist successes in World War II built an audience for their views and made an extremely alien ideology comprehensible to growing numbers of Vietnamese. In what is by far the most thorough examination in English of modern Vietnamese Buddhism and its transformations, McHale argues that, contrary to received wisdom, Buddhism was not in decline during the 1920-1945 period; in fact, more Buddhist texts were produced in Vietnam at that time than at any other in its history. This finding suggests that the heritage of the Vietnamese past played a crucial role in the late colonial period. Print and Power makes a significant contribution to Vietnamese and Asian studies and will be of compelling interest to those in the fields of comparative religion and European colonialism.

45 The Historical Statusof China in Tibet

Zahiruddin Ahmad

Aditya Prakashan, New Delhi, India, 2012, 8177421115 / 9788177421118, First Edition, Hardcover, Brand New, Brand New, 15 x 22.5 Cm 
In this book the author examines the claim made by the British in the 19th/20th centuries that China was suzerain but not sovereign in Tibet and the counter claim made by the Chinese that China was sovereign not suzerain in Tibet at least since the 13th century. The author shows that neither of these two propositions is historically correct. In the 13th/14th centuries when China was part of the East Asian Mongol empire a personal religious relationship was established between the Mongol Khan not the emperor of China and the principal lama ruler of Tibet namely the head of the Sakyapa sect of Tibetan Buddhism. Briefly it was a relationship between the Khan as the Giver of religious offerings and the deity Hevajra incarnate in the body of the lama as an object of worship. During the Manchu Chng dynasty 1644-1912 the personal religious relationship was revived between the Manchu emperor and the new heads of the Tibetan state, namely the Dalai Lamas of Tibet, the reincarnations of Avalokitesvara. This thesis is supported by 9 appendices which are translations of Chinese, Tibetan and Mongolian historical documents. Printed Pages: 215 037576
