New York: Simon & Schuster, 1996. First Edition.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. Type: Hardback First Printing. Fine in Fine Dust Jacket. Elliott examines America's 'whining' even though we live in the most prosperous society the world has ever seen--and he tells us that the life we mourn is measured against the false standard of the uniquely prosperous years after World War II. Our country's severe problems are put into better perspective when measured against our longer history. We can then see we have been a nation of prolblem solvers and can be again. He explores this past and the prosperity of the unique years, the assassination of JFK,the end of the Cold War in 1989, the instability that developed, divisions among races and classes, immigration, and the economic slowdown. 320 pages. 6.5 x 9.5 inches. Simon & Schuster Publishers, New York, 1996., Simon & Schuster, 1996, Penguin Books India, 2004. Softcover. New. Iyer experiences and depicts these lonely places with the same wit, vitality and insight that distinguish his first two books—and the result is a memorable gallery of countries poignantly isolated in spirit and time`—San Francisco Examiner What does the elegant nostalgia of Argentina have in common with the raffish nonchalance of Australia? And what do both these countries have in common with North Korea? They are all `lonely places` cut off from the rest of the world by geography, ideology or sheer weirdness. And they have all attracted the attention of Pico Iyer. Whether he is documenting the cruising rites of Icelandic teenagers, being interrogated by tipsy Cuban police or summarizing the plot of Bhutan`s first feature film (`a $6500 spectacular about a star-crossed couple: she dies, he throws himself on the funeral pyre, and both live happily ever after as an ox and a cow`), Iyer is always uncannily observant and acerbically funny. Printed Pages: 208., Penguin Books India, 2004, Paperback. New. Presents a collection of non fiction essays, articles, and appreciations of fellow writers. This work examines the author's evidence of the inequities of Apartheid as she saw them in 1959, her shocking account of the bans on literature still in effect in the mid-1970s, through to South Africa's emergence in 1994 as a country free at last., 2018.

Scheduled castes constitute about one-sixth of the total population of India with a lot of spatio-temporal variations ranging from almost negligible to as high as 29 per cent of the total population of the state. Prior to independence and even sometimes later, they had been the poorest of the poor and socially and economically most backward castes of the country. But after independence they are going under social and economic change both in rural and urban areas. Their attitude towards society and social values and norms has undergone a change. They are gradually not only accepting but have also started practising certain measures of family planning. They are becoming more conscious about the education and job of their children. Their attitude towards religion, child marriage, superstitions is changing. Economic transformation is also not lagging behind. By and large, they are no longer bonded or permanent labourers. They are now gradually becoming marginal farmers and have started working in non-agricultural sectors too.This book, therefore, critically analyses the socio-economic transformation of scheduled castes with focus on major social parameters such as education, marriage, religion, social mobility, family planning programmes, family size, superstitions and political awareness and involvements; and economic parameters like income level, standard of living, housing condition, mode of transport, and exposure to mass media. It also examines inter and intra variations in socio-economic transformation of scheduled and non-scheduled castes and rural and urban population, and suggests viable short and long term practical measures for their socio-economic upliftment. This book will be of immense value not only to the academicians and researchers but also to policy makers and administrators. Printed Pages: 228, Concept Publishing Company Pvt.

Preface The books which make up this trilogy began, very simply, as an attempt to understand the men who fought in the Army of the Potomac. As a small boy I had known a number of these men in their old age; they were grave, dignified, and thoughtful, with long white beards and a general air of being pillars of the community. They lived in rural Michigan in the pre-automobile age, and for the most part they had never been fifty miles away from the farm or the dusty village streets; yet once, ages ago, they had been everywhere and had seen everything, and nothing that happened to them thereafter meant anything much. All that was real had taken place when they were young; everything after that had simply been a process of waiting for death, which did not frighten them much-they had seen it inflicted in the worst possible way on boys who had not bargained for it, and they had enough of the old-fashioned religion to believe without any question that when they passed over they would simply be rejoining men and ways of living which they had known long ago. This was too much for an adolescent t~ understand. Perhaps it is too much for anybody to understand, in a skeptical age. But there it was: these old gentlemen, drowsing out the greater part of their lives in the backwoods, had once been lifted beyond themselves by an experience which perhaps was all the more significant because it was imperfectly understood. They gave a tone and a color to the lives of the people who knew them, and they put a special meaning on such a word' as "patriotism"; it was not something you talked about very much, just a living force that you instinctively responded to. I can remember one old man who had lost his left arm in the Wilderness, and he used to go about town in the summer peddling cherries and blackberries in a bucket-there was just enough of his left forearm so that he could hook it over the bail of the bucket and carry it conveniently-and it never once entered my childish head to feel sorry for him because he had been a cripple for half a century. On the contrary, I thought he was rather lucky. He carried with him forever the visible sign that he had fought for his country and had been wounded in its service. Probably only a very backward boy could have thought anything of the kind. Still, that was what it was like. A generation grew up in the shadow of a war which, because of its distance, somehow had lost all resemblance to everyday reality. To a generation which knew the war only by hearsay, it seemed that these aged veterans had been privileged to know the greatest experience a man could have. We saw the Civil War, in other words, through the distorting haze of endless Decoration Day reminiscences; to us it was a romantic business because all we ever got a look at was the legend built up through fifty years of peace. We do learn as we grow older, and eventually I realized that this picture was somewhat out of focus. War, obviously, is the least romantic of all of man's activities, and it contains elements which the veterans do not describe to children. This aged berry-peddler, for instance, who lost his arm in the Wilderness: he had never told me about the wounded men who were burned to death in the forest fire which swept that infernal stretch of woodland while the battle was going on; nor had any of his comrades who survived that fight and went on through the whole campaign to the last days at Petersburg ever mentioned the lives that were wasted by official blunders, the dirt and the war-weariness and the soul-numbing disillusionment that came when it seemed that what they were doing was going for nothing. There was a deacon in the church, who used to remind us proudly that he had served in the 2nd Ohio Cavalry. Not until years later did I learn that this regiment had gone with Sheridan in the Shenandoah :Valley, burning barns, killing livestock and pillaging with a free hand so that the Southern Confederacy, if it refused to die in any other way, might die of plain starvation. In a sense, the research that went into these books was simply an effort to find out about the things which the veterans never discussed. Yet, in an odd way, the old veterans did leave one correct impression: the notion that as young men they had been caught up by something ever so much larger than themselves and that the war in which they fought did settle something for us-or, incredibly, started something which we ourselves have got to finish. It was not only the biggest experience in their own lives; it was in a way the biggest experience in our life as a nation, and it deserves all of the study it is getting. In any case, these books try to examine a small part of that experience in terms of the men who did the fighting. Those men are all gone now and they have left forever unsaid the things they might have told us, and no one now can speak for them. Here is my attempt to speak about them. 1962 B.C. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. <br/><br/> <br/><br/>, Doubleday, 1962, Although more than half of the world's Muslims live in Asia, most books on contemporary Islam focus on the Middle East, giving short shift to the dynamic and diverse presence of Asian Islam in regional and global politics. The Muslims of Asia constitute the largest Muslim communities in the world - Indonesia, Pakistan, Bangladesh, India and Central Asia. In recent years, terrorist bombings in Bali, separatist conflicts in Thailand and the Philippines, and opposition politics in Central Asia, all point to the strategic importance of Asian Islam. In Asian Islam in the 21st Century, terrorism and its effects are placed within the broader context of Muslim politics and how Islamic ideals and movements, mainstream and extremist, have shaped Asian Muslim societies. Democratization experiments - successful and unsuccessful - are examined. The rise of radical militant movements is analyzed and placed in historical perspective. The result is an insightful portrait of the rich diversity of Muslim politics and discourse that continue to affect Asian Muslim majority and minority countries. Specialists and students of Islamic studies, religion and international affairs, and comparative politics as well as general readers will benefit from this sorely needed comprehensive analysis of a part of the world that has become increasingly important in the 21st century., Oxford University Press, USA, New Delhi, India: Penguin/Viking, 2008 Devayani chooses to live alone in the small town of Rajnur after her parents’ death, ignoring the gently voiced disapproval of her family and friends. Teaching English, creating a garden and making friends with Rani, a former actress who settles in the town with her husband and three children, Devayani’s life is tranquil, imbued with a hardwon independence. Then she meets Ashok Chinappa, Rajnur’s new District Superintendent of Police, and they fall in love despite the fact that Ashok is much older, married, and—as both painfully acknowledge from the very beginning—it is a relationship without a future. Deshpande’s unflinching gaze tracks the suffering, evasions and lies that overtake those caught in the web of subterfuge. There are no hostages taken in the country of deceit; no victors; only scarred lives. This understated yet compassionate examination of the nature of love, loyalty and deception establishes yet again Deshpande’s position as one of India’s most formidable writers of fiction. Printed pages: 272.. First Edition. Hardcover. New/New. 15 x 23 Cm., Penguin/Viking, 2008
