In this book,the author provides a wonderful new approach
to life. Disclosing secrets from a two thousand year old
sacred text, she gives us an understanding of how one
simple thought could change the entire course of our
lives and how we can deliberately make that happen for
ourselves. She is reveals the power of a simple, yet life
altering idea.Here, she introduces the power of gratitude
and teaches her readers how to implement it in a more
rewarding way than they could have thought possible. In
-The Secret-, she had talked about the Law of Attraction.
In this book, she has furthered this concept by
explaining the power of being grateful and shows us how,
like magic, it can transform us, the way we think and
look at ourselves and the world.

How to live in a supposedly faithless world threatened by
religious fundamentalism? Terry Eagleton, formidable
thinker and renowned cultural critic, investigates in
this thought-provoking book the contradictions,
difficulties, and significance of the modern search for a
replacement for God. Engaging with a phenomenally wide
range of ideas, issues, and thinkers from the
Enlightenment to today, the author discusses the state of
religion before and after 9/11, the ironies surrounding
Western capitalism-s part in spawning not only secularism
but also fundamentalism, and the unsatisfactory
surrogates for the Almighty invented in the post-

Geopolitical Economy radically reinterprets the
historical evolution of the world order, as a multi-polar
world emerges from the dust of the financial and economic
crisis.The author offers a radical critique of the
theories of US hegemony, globalisation and empire which
dominate academic international political economy and
international relations, revealing their ideological
origins in successive failed US attempts at world
dominance through the dollar.She revitalizes
revolutionary intellectual traditions which combine class
and national perspectives on °the relations of producing
nations°. At a time of global upheavals and profound
shifts in the distribution of world power, Geopolitical
Economy forges a vivid and compelling account of the
historical processes which are shaping the contemporary

This book highlights the changes in industrial
productivity after liberalisation and also presents a
comparison of the performance of domestic- and foreign-
owned firms. Drawing on these analyses the book
recommends policy changes for the government to consider.
Breaking the artificial distinction between FDI and
trade, it implores the government to reduce
administrative obstacles in developing synergies between
the two. The authors argue that in bringing greater
competition and technology spinoffs for the local
industry, FDI is likely to benefit the economy.

This book provides a comprehensive analysis of the
critical dimensions of food security in various countries
of Asia. It compellingly argues that food insecurity is a
complex phenomenon that requires a comprehensive response
encompassing, inter alia, increasing food production,
expanding economic and social access to food, special
access to food for disadvantaged groups and, most
importantly, breaking down the gender-based barriers to
accessing food.The book discusses the major governmental
policies in relation to the communities- responses. While
highlighting the pressure exerted by climate change and
world population growth, it also propounds ideas that
would help in making informed policy choices.

The Country of First Boys is Amartya Sen-s intellectual
journey through the past and present to seek an
understanding of India-s history and the demands of its
future. The themes of these essays include the hardened
and extreme nature of inequality in India and what can be
done about it. One of the many rewards of good schooling-
denied to most Indians - includes the understanding that
India is an integral part of a world civilization. Always
sensitive to global communication and interaction,
India-s own contributions vary from the development of a
multiplicity of astronomically reasoned calendars and the
invention of games like chess to the establishment of the
foundations of several branches of modern mathematics.In
this collection, the author examines justice, identity,
deprivation, inequalities, gender politics, education,
the media and the importance of getting your priorities

Sam McCready is The Deceiver, one of the Secret
Intelligence Service-s most unorthodox and most valued
operatives, a legend in his own time. The end of the cold
war has, however, strengthened the hand of the Whitehall
mandarins, to whom he seems about as controllable as
Genhis Khan, so Sam is to have his fate decided at a
special hearing.As part of the proceedings, four of Sam-s
key operations are reviewed: a clandestine mission into
East Germany in 1985 to contact the top Russian spy
General Pankratin, the second involving a KGB colonel who
wants to defect - but is he genuine? An audacious Qaddafi
inspired plot to ship arms to the IRA, and the fourth
when McCready presided over the aftermath of political
murder and mayhem in the Caribbean.
