nationalism. The book also contains Chatterjee’s
provocative and theoretically innovative essays analysing
the phenomenon of democracy in a post-colonial country
like India. A special feature of this book is the sampling
it provides of Partha Chatterjee’s best short
journalistic pieces, of humorous and stylistically
brilliant book reviews, and the first translations into
English of some of his Bengali essays.

This book reveals the emergence of a new theory of
postcolonial democracy. As against earlier ideas about
the nature of democracy which grew predominantly out of
notions and practices in the West the author powerfully
argues that the theory now in evidence is not merely a
record of the imperfections and immaturity of democracy
in the non-Western world. On the contrary, it has devised
concepts and analytical tools 2to understand the
formation of new democratic practices. In doing so, it
has also shown up histories of modern political
institutions which are not part of the genealogy of
Western democracy. The author also here clarifies the
location of his work in relation to liberal political
theory, understandings of contemporary capitalism, and
theories of nationalism and populism.

xv, 266p., 22cm.

The book analyses the emergence of biocultural rights as
a sub-set of third generation group rights in
environmental law. It argues that these rights, which
advocate people-s duty of stewardship over nature, have
arisen as a response to the world-s ecological crisis.
The book uses a multipronged approach, relying upon
economic, anthropological, political, and legal theories,
to deconstruct the current concepts of private property
from the perspective of indigenous peoples and
traditional communities. It further presents evidence
that this discursive shift is gaining formal legal
recognition by referring to negotiations of multilateral
environmental agreements, judicial decisions of regional,
and domestic courts and community initiatives.

This book examines Stata-s treatment of generalized
linear mixed models, also known as multilevel or
hierarchical models. These models are "mixed" because
they allow fixed and random effects, and they are
"generalized" because they are appropriate for continuous
Gaussian responses as well as binary, count, and other
types of limited dependent variables. Volume I covers
continuous Gaussian linear mixed models and has nine
chapters. The chapters are organized in four parts.
Volume II discusses generalized linear mixed models for
binary, categorical, count, and survival outcomes.
