Buddhist Philosophy in India and Ceylon

By: A. Berriedale Keith

Price: $8.25

Publisher: New Delhi, India, Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.: 1979

Edition: Second Edition

Seller ID: 000777

ISBN: 81-7069-109-5

Condition: New


Buddhism can be viewed as a vehicle for transporting its adherents, who are anxious for release from rebirths but least inclined to follow either the path of rigorous asceticism or that of tantalizing speculation on the nature of the self, from this word of misery to Nirvana where all pain ceases. Its message was so simple and direct that all, from prince to plebeian alike, succumbed to its appeal and swelled its ranks. It became the religion of an empire which held sway over the Indian sub-continent; in the process the message of the master was lost. A number of schools, each claiming to echo... View more info

Reservation and Affirmative Action: Models of Social Integration in India and the United States

By: Arvind Sharma

Price: $13.95

Publisher: New Delhi, India, Sage Publications: 2008

Edition: First Edition

Seller ID: 028571

ISBN: 8178298589

Condition: New


This book examines the principles underlining the policies of reservation and affirmative action adopted by two non-homogeneous and multi-ethnic societies—India and the USA. Despite the fact that the governments of both countries have, for over fifty years now, applied these measures to overcome discrimination based on caste and race respectively, the author maintains that there is no comprehensive account of the grounds on which either reservations or affirmative action can be intellectually justified. Addressing the key question—What is being affirmed through affirmative action?—the a... View more info

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 vie... View more info

How has democracy taken root in India in the face of a low-income economy, widespread poverty, illiteracy, and immense ethnic diversity? Atul Kohli brings together some of the worlds leading scholars of Indian politics to consider this intriguing anomaly. They do so by focusing not so much on socioeconomic factors, but rather on the ways in which power is distributed in India. Two processes have guided the negotiation of power conflicts. First, a delicate balance has been struck between the forces of centralization and decentralization and, second, the interests of the powerful in society have... View more info

Two well-known scholars examine India`s search for a major role in the international system. Central to the argument is India`s belief that the acquisition of an independent nuclear capability is key to obtaining such status. The book details the constraints at the international, domestic and perceptual levels that India has faced in this endeavor and concludes that systemic and domestic changes will be necessary before it can achieve its goal. Given recent developments, the book is extremely timely. Its incisive analysis will be illuminating for students and policy makers. Contents 1. Intr... View more info
