This book discusses two development themes: the land and

engaging marginalized people in action research. It
focuses on a concrete problem enclosure and eviction of
the Katkari, a primitive forest tribe, from their rural
hamlets on the plains of Maharashtra. The book traces the
evolving relationship between adivasi and caste-based
agrarian societies in modern India, and the
transformation of the Katkari into bonded workers in
brick kilns and charcoal operations, serving the urban
and industrial interests of Greater Mumbai.

The book shows how Gandhi-s non-violent protests were the
subject of widespread discussion and debate in the USA
and UK for several decades. Though at first
misrepresented by Western newspapers, they were patiently
described and clarified by a devoted group of
cosmopolitan advocates. Small groups of Westerners
experimented with Gandhian techniques in virtual
anonymity and then, on the cusp of the 1960s, brought
these methods to a wider audience.

Hindu and Greek mythologies teem with stories of women
and men who are doubled, who double themselves, who are
seduced by gods doubling as mortals and whose bodies are
split or divided. This book recounts and compares a vast
range of these tales from ancient Greece and India, with
occasional recourse to more recent "double features" from
"Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" to "Face/Off." argues that myth
responds to the complexities of the human condition by
multiplying or splitting its characters into unequal
parts, and these sloughed and cloven selves animate
mythology-s prodigious plots of sexuality and mortality.

book draws upon a host of authentic sources such as
tracts, pamphlets, brochures, booklets of various

for the creation of medical consumers.

Tavi of Calderon, now captain of his own Legion, has been
fighting a bitter war for two years. Then he discovers
the invading Canim warriors are harbingers of a far
greater threat. The Canim are being hunted in their turn
by a savage race that forced them from their homeland -
and which has pursued them to the Aleran borders. With
options fast running out, Tavi proposes an alliance with
the Canim.But the Senate-s new military commander wishes
only to wipe out the Canim -scourge-, and would also kill
Aleran slaves that have sought freedom with these
aggressors.Tavi must reconcile Aleran and Canim,
slavemaster and slave, Citizen and Proletarian, if an
alliance is to be forced. And he must lead his Legion in
defiance of the law, against both friend and enemy -
before the greatest army of all launches its assault.

the Alerans are being ground into dust and pushed to the
farthest reaches of their own realm.However, Tavi has
returned with vital insights from the Canim Blood Lands.
He knows how to counter the Vord and, more importantly,
believes human ingenuity can equal fury-born powers. Now
events are rushing towards a last stand, where Tavi and
the last Aleran legions must formulate a dangerous new
strategy, together. For a civilisation is on the brink of

This book addresses the power of ideas in the making of
Indian political modernity. It reviews the period from
the emergence of constitutional liberalism in the1830s,
through the swadeshi era to the writings of Tilak, Azad

contributions reflect on the ideologies of nationalism,

simply a narration of the nation-state.

This book analyses the system of personal law in colonial
India through a re-examination of women-s rights.
Focusing on Hindu law in western India, it challenges
existing scholarship, showing how - far from being a
system based on traditional values - Hindu law was
developed around ideas of liberalism, and that this
framework encouraged questions about equality, women-s
rights, the significance of bodily difference, and more
broadly the relationship between state and society.
