Many people assume, largely because of Gandhi-s legacy,
that Hinduism is a religion of non-violence. the author
shows just how wrong this assumption is. Using the life of
Anupgiri Gosain, a Hindu ascetic who lived at the end of
the eighteenth century, he demonstrates that Hindu
warrior ascetics were an important component of the South
Asian military labor market in the medieval and early
modern Indian past, and crucial to the rise of British
imperialism. Today, they occupy a prominent place in
modern Indian imaginations, ironically as romantic
defenders of a Hindu India against foreign invasion, even
though they are almost totally absent from Indian
history. The author-s innovative and gloriously composed
book sets out to piece together the story of the rise and
demise of warrior asceticism in India from the 1500s to

of the few ways of both understanding what makes a bank
tick and getting a fundamentally robust indication as to
how much a bank is worth. It provides all the necessary
tools for use in the real environment of investment
banking to analyse banks results, evaluate strategic

be used to value financial institutions. By sketching 1)
the different business models of banks (both commercial
and investment banks) and insurance companies (life,
property and casualty and reinsurance), 2) the structure
and peculiarities of financial institutions’ reporting
and financial statements, and 3) the main features of
regulatory capital frameworks for banking and insurance
(ie Basel III, Solvency II), the book addresses why such
elements make the valuation of financial institutions
different from the valuation of non financial companies.

is beneficial for capital market participants. This book
covers additional aspects to shed light on substantial
drivers of discretionary reporting behavior around going

industry affiliation, and specific years in the IPO
process add further insight to this theoretical and
practical topic. The dependence on these factors is high
and confirms that company specifics are important for
