This book offers a new way of understanding one of the
world-s oldest major religions. Hinduism does not lend
itself easily to a strictly chronological account. Many
of its central texts cannot be reliably dated within a
century, its central tenets arise at particular moments
in Indian history and often differ according to gender or
caste, and the differences between groups of Hindus far
outnumber the commonalities. This groundbreaking work
elucidates the relationship between recorded history and

This is a study of the Bengali Kartabhaja sect and its
place in the broader movement of Tantrism.The author
looks closely at the relationship between the rise of the
Kartabhajas, who flourished at the turn of the 19th
century, and the changing economic context of colonial
Bengal. Made up of the poor lower classes laboring in the
marketplaces and factories of Calcutta, the Kartabhajas
represent "the underworld of the imperial city." He shows
that their esoteric poetry and songs are in fact
saturated with the language of the marketplace and the
bazaar, which becomes for them the key metaphor used to
communicate secret knowledge and mystical teachings.

This book provides a comprehensive review of how physical
and human processes interact to shape migration, using
simple diagrams and models to guide the researcher,
policy maker and advanced student through the climate-
migration process. The book applies standard concepts and
theories used in climate and migration scholarship to
explain how events such as Hurricane Katrina, the Dust
Bowl, African droughts, and floods in Bangladesh and
China have triggered migrations that haven-t always fit
the environmental refugee storyline. Lessons from past
migrations are used to predict how future migration
patterns will unfold in the face of sea level rise, food
insecurity, political instability, and to review options
for policy makers.

interdisciplinary debate on all aspects of Adam Smith’s
works, his place in history, and the significance of his
writings to the modern world. It is aimed at facilitating
debate between scholars working across the humanities and

Teeming with merchants from all over Europe, medieval
Bruges provides an early model of a great capitalist
city. Bruges established a sophisticated money market and
an elaborate network of agents and brokers.In this book
the author explores how Bruges became the commercial
capital of northern Europe in the late fourteenth
century. He argues that a combination of fortuitous
changes such as the shift to sea-borne commerce and the
extraordinary efforts of the city-s population served to
shape a great commercial centre.

This book investigates, specifically in the Indian
context, the concept of sustainability in one of the most
celebrated form of social enterprises of our times "
Microfinance Institutions (MFIs).It attempts to answer
pertinent questions such as: What are the determinant and
discriminating factors for the sustainability of MFIs in
India? How are these factors being managed by the
operationally efficient Indian MFIs that remained
sustainable at reasonable interest rates before the onset
of the crisis and ceilings imposition in Indian
microfinance markets? What does the Indian microfinance
crisis teach us about sustainability management and
mismanagement? In a nutshell, the answers show that
sustainability is a strategic issue that needs managerial
attention and not a matter to be left to serendipity.

This book addresses central developments within the
contemporary international system. The notions of
interdependence and globalisation that have accompanied
the political discourse of -a new world disorder- are
replete with definitional ambiguities, theoretical
difficulties and empirical complexities. The author
offers a critical review and analysis of these concepts,
their significance and place within the wider debates of
international political economy. He argues that
contemporary conditions are complex, with regionalising
tendencies cross-cutting those of increasing
globalisation, and -national- impulses surviving even in
the face of powerful -internationalising- forces.

Leberecht Migge (1881-1935) was one of the most
innovative landscape architects of the early twentieth
century. With work ranging from large urban parks to
housing settlements with allotment gardens, he sought to
create functional green spaces that would not only meet
the environmental challenges of the industrial metropolis
but also improve the social conditions of modern life.
Migge-s notion of -garden culture- captured the essence
of the progressive reform movements of early twentieth-
century Germany and yet was unique in proposing a
comprehensive role for open space planning within this
vision. The book-s greatest significance today lies in
Migge-s emphasis on the socioeconomic benefits of urban
agriculture, which prefigured both this important
contemporary trend as well as other recent developments
in green technology and infrastructure.

Jorge Luis Borges (1899-1986) was one of the great
writers of the twentieth century and the most influential
author in the Spanish language of modern times. He had a

later poetry and fiction, as well as of the -canonical-
volumes of the middle years.Other chapters focus on key
