This book explores the diverse and changing significance
of dharma in classical India. The author shows the
different ways in which dharma was interpreted during
that formative period: from the grand cosmic
chronometries of kalpas and yugas to narratives about
divine plans, gendered nuances of genealogical time,
royal biography (even autobiography, in the case of the
emperor Asoka), and guidelines for daily life, including
meditation. He reveals the vital role dharma has played
across political, religious, legal, literary, ethical,
and philosophical domains and discourses about what holds
life together.

ISBN : 9780415652063.
301.01 KIN 142710
The book demonstrates that a sociology which focuses on
social relations does not imply a return to idealism, nor
a retreat into individualism, nor a rejection of
critique. Rather, a hermeneutic sociology which
prioritises human social relations is the only coherent
paradigm which is available today. The author argues that
sociologists studying the dramatic social transformations
which are currently occuring should focus on social
relations between humans, they should not attempt to
understand contemporary changes in terms of structure and
agency.

This book provides in-depth analysis of a range of
international media representations of disaster, war,
conflict, migration and celebration. The book explores how
images, stories and voices, on television, the Internet,
and in advertisements and newspapers, invite us to
relocate to distant contexts, and to relate to people who
are remote from our daily lives, by developing -mediated
intimacy- and focusing on the self. It also explores how
these representations shape our self-narratives.

Testing Monetarism pursues the complex question of the
nature of the controversy surrounding monetarist theory
and evidence, and the reasons for the persistence of this
controversy. The theory of monetarism is examined in its
old guise as the Quantity Theory of Money, and subsequent
chapters look at the evolution of the theory to its
present form in the period since the 1950-s, and Desai
weaves together issues of theory with those of
econometric evidence. He looks in turn at major
predictions of monetarism, critically examining the
claims made in the literature in the light of his
discussion of the methodology of testing theories and
highlights flaws in the empirical data surrounding
monetarism.

The author analyzes three aspects of monetary policy
under uncertainty. First he shows that the terms risk and
uncertainty are often wrongly used as synonyms despite
their different meanings. The second aspect is the proper
examination and incorporation of uncertainty into a
monetary policy framework. The author undertakes a
systematization with a closer look at each identified
form of uncertainty. Thirdly, he focuses on the
quantification of uncertainty from two different
perspectives, either from a market perspective or from a
central bank perspective.

This book aims to explore and answer the following three
questions: What is an appropriate technology? How can we
ensure a sustainable, integrated development? What are
the conditions for co-creation and transfer of such
technologies? Focusing on the importance of improving
working relationships between stakeholders, researchers
and decision-makers, between scientists and industrial
sectors, between academics and the population, the book
opens a dialogue necessary to create and implement the
best solutions adapted to social demands.

In this book, world-renowned economists and policymakers
write about industrial policy, which is being recognized
anew as a linchpin for the economics of development. They
show that developing countries that have undertaken a
wide variety of industrial policies have been the most
successful. In focusing on Africa, which has a
potentially great producer and consumer base for
industry, they have chosen a continent that provides an
especially clear example of why this refreshed emphasis
on industrial policy is so important.

Due to the lack of success in climate change mitigation
efforts, the importance of adaptation is becoming more
and more apparent and is now one of the main imperatives
of international research and action. However, research
on adaptation is mostly not directly applicable to
adaptation policy or practice, leaving a gap between
scientific results and practical advice for decision
makers and planners. This book seeks to address this
problem and bridge the gap and should provide readers
with practical and applicable information on climate
change adaptation. The book is organised into four main
sections, each reflecting an essential component in the
adaptation process.

careers tied to a single employer or industry. Instead of
pensions the current generation is focused on personal
development. The Alliance suggests that employers and
employees enter into mutually agreed upon "tours of duty"
designed to accomplish very specific goals and then
reassess the relationship once the tour has been
completed.
