5 Arunachal: Peoples, Arts and Adornments in India's Eastern Himalayas

Peter Van Ham

Niyogi Books, New Delhi, India, 2014, 9789383098002, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 23 x 30 Cm 
The state of Arunachal Pradesh, moulded out of the mountainous margins of Assam, is incomparable to any other place in the world due to its ethnic variety and exuberant natural beauty. In many parts its as yet untouched rainforest shelters 110 different peoples or tribes and their mainly animist cultures influenced at the country’s fringes by Buddhism, both from Tibet and Burma. Unique customs such as living polygamously in longhouses, atypical forms of interaction between the individual and his clan, blood vengeance, animal sacrifice and even ritual forms of head hunting have survived here. ARUNACHAL – Peoples, Arts and Adornment in India’s Eastern Himalayas is the result of 10 years of painstaking travel and research among all of this state’s many peoples. It covers geography, history and anthropology, through 370 brilliant photographs focused especially on the peoples’ unique arts and personal adornment.

8 Bhutan: Kingdom in the Himalaya

Tucked away in the eastern Himalaya, between the riverine plains of India and the cold and arid Tibetan plateau, Bhutan is the country of dreams, dragons, legends and landscapes. With its sparking verdant valleys, gurgling streams and forests aglow with wild orchids, this picturesque country is like none other. But Bhutan is more than just temperate forests and tropical jungles. It is the land where the king initiates the move towards democracy, where the people are firmly rooted in religion and are fiercely proud of their history. Most of all, it is a country on the path of development but without sacrificing its values or polluting the environment. This book brings alive all these aspects of the dragon country through some exquisite illustrations in colour and a flowing narrative. Printed Pages: 95 with numerous colour illustrations. 026938

12 Demonic Divine: Himalayan Art and Beyond

Rob Linrothe and Jeff Watt

Serindia Publications, Chicago, USA, 2004, 1-932476-08-3 / 9781932476088, First Edition, Paperback, New, 8.75 x 11.5 Inches 
Demonic Divine: Himalayan Art and Beyond marks the Rubin Museum of Art's opening season as the first exhibition to focus on the "wrathful" image in Himalayan Art. Centuries after early missionaries first claimed these works and the artists who made them "demonic", the accompanying catalog takes an in-depth look at the role of "wrathful" deities in Himalayan art and in the world at large. Focusing on 66 works of art, the book investigates how the violence, grotesque features, and explicit postures of these "wrathful" figures portray protection and benevolence. With nearly two hundred color images highlighting both the visual power and artistic craftsmanship of the artwork, the margin between horror and beauty becomes slim. This extensive catalogue includes entries of all exhibited works along with comprehensive essays by the exhibition's curator, Rob Linrothe (Associate Professor of Art History at Skidmore College), Jeff Watt (Director of the Himalayan Art Website), and Marylin Rhie (Professor of Asian Art at Smith College.) Matthieu Ricard contributes the catalogue's foreword. Although drawing primarily from Himalayan work in RMA's permanent collection the catalog also includes non-Asian art on loan from major museums and private collections. The "demonic divine" is a fundamental paradox not limited by time or geography. Works included range from ca. 13th century Tibet through 20th century Mexico. This volume is an essential reference for libraries, art historians, connoisseurs, and any reader seeking horrific beauty - an illustration of the "Demonic Divine." Printed Pages: 344 with over 200 colour illustrations. 011987

18 Himalayan Degradation: Colonial Forestry and Environmental Change in India (Culture and Environment of South Asia Series)

Dhirendra Datt Dangwal

Foundation Books, New Delhi, India, 2008, 8175966319 / 9788175966314, First Edition, Hard Cover, New, New, 155 x 235 Mm 
Himalayan Degradation, Colonial Forestry and Environmental Change in India questions the recent trend of treating environmental and agrarian concerns as two separate domains. In this aspect, the book goes beyond the existing framework of environmental history that focuses only on the study of state policies and debates over redefining rights and examining protests. The author makes a careful study of the larger rural economy, emphasising the changing significance of pastoralism, trade and foraging in the life of the common people. He links forest degradation and environmental change to socioeconomic transformation. The introduction of ‘scientific forestry' in the late nineteenth century transformed forests into a profitable resource for commercial purposes. Forests were overexploited, which resulted in wider ecological changes in the Himalaya . Underlining the centrality of forests and mountain resources to the livelihood and culture of the people of Uttarakhand, the book subjects the notion of sustainable management of forests to close scrutiny. The book will be of interest to historians, environmentalists, policy-makers, social scientists and general readers.

21 Himalayan Wonderland: Travels in Lahaul and Spiti

Manohar Singh Gill (M.S. Gill)

Penguin, New Delhi, India, 2010, 0670084131 / 9780670084135, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 15 x 23 Cm 
In the summer of 1962, a restless young Indian administrator, Manohar Singh Gill, made an arduous journey from the north Indian plains to the farthest reaches of the Indian Himalayas—the Lahaul and Spiti valleys—and spent a year there, living and working amongst the people. Gill went on to a distinguished career in the civil services and government, but his experience of the relentless beauty of these spectacular Himalayan deserts and the generosity of the people of this land changed him for life. Part memoir, part travel book and part anthropology, Himalayan Wonderland is a witty, opinionated account of Gill’s lifelong affair with this extraordinary region. The book, however, is much more than one man’s account of a place ?it is a hopeful and enlightening view of the practice of administration and the joy of working with people. Illustrated with more than forty photographs taken by Gill himself, and including detailed contour maps and information on trekking routes in Lahaul and Spiti, this is a remarkably illuminating and accessible account of this faraway land—from the 1960s, when few knew about the place, to today’s unpredictable world of receding glaciers and lost cultures.

24 Intriguing India: The Alluring North

Hugh And Colleen Gantzer

Niyogi Books, New Delhi, India, 2012, 8192091279 / 9788192091273, First Edition, Paperback, New, 15 x 23 Cm 
Harry Potter’s Hogwarts is a magical place. But it’s an unreal one: it does not exist. Hugh and Colleen Gantzer have discovered magical places in India that are real and accessible. What is the origin of the fear that a monster lies beneath the surface of the high, blue, lake of Pangong Tso? Who was the Englishman who carved out his own kingdom in the Himalayas? What gourmet dish was created by a ruler to feed his famished subjects? What is the epic tale of the white shrine where the weapons of a martial saint are revered? This is not a travelogue, or a guide book, or even a retelling of ancient folklore. It is, however, a little bit of all three. It is a conversation with two well informed people who have travelled, and questioned, and analysed. They are convinced that every legend, every custom has grown out of a hard core of fact, a historical event whose impact was so great that it was branded into the racial memory of the community. It then became encased in multiple layers of myth. In The Alluring North, while describing their experiences in their gently evocative style, Hugh and Colleen Gantzer also uncover many fascinating gems of other, enduring, realities that glitter within our ‘intriguing India’.

26 Kailash and Manasarovar: A Quest Beyond the Himalaya

Deb Mukharji

Niyogi Books, New Delhi, India, 2013, 9789383098040, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 24 x 24 Cm 
Since times immemorial, Kailash and Manas have been an integral part of the faith and imagination of the peoples of South Asia and Tibet. The imprint of their influence is engraved in stone in the architectural wonders of Borobudur and Angkor Wat in Southeast Asia. Hindus and Buddhists have considered it the ultimate pilgrimage. Even considered the abode of Shiva, the most powerful and enigmatic of deities, over time Kailash became identified with Meru, the mythical mountain, which connected heaven and earth with the nether world, the axis mundi round which the world revolved, the very centre of creation. Kailash, the crystal mountain to Hindus, is Kang Rinpoche, the precious snowy mountain to Buddhists where dwells Heruka Chakrasamvara, adorned like Shiva with the crescent moon. Bons worship it as the holy mountain, Tise, and for Jains it is ashtapada, where Rshavadeva attained nirvana. Kailash and Manasarovar: A Quest Beyond the Himalaya delves into mythology and the experience of travellers and pilgrims through the centuries to depict what Kailash has meant to peoples through the ages, and how its influence has permeated literature and great achievements in architecture. The text includes descriptions of three journeys undertaken over twenty-one years, both along the traditional pilgrim route from India over the Lipu Pass and across Tibet. Over two hundred photographs accompany the text. Printed Pages: 252 with Numerous Colour Illustrations. 037957
