The creation of the Frankfurt School of critical theory
in the 1920s saw the birth of some of the most exciting
and challenging writings of the twentieth century. It is
out of this background that the great critic Theodor
Adorno emerged. His finest essays are collected here,
offering the reader unparalleled insights into Adorno-s

The old discussion of -Market or State- is obsolete.
There will always have to be a mix of market and state.
The only relevant question is what that mix should look
like. How far do we have to let the market go its own way
in order to create as much welfare as possible for
everyone? What is the responsibility of the government in
creating welfare? These are difficult questions. But they
are also interesting questions and Paul De Grauwe
analyses them in this book.

Intellectual property in India has had a chequered
history. India was saddled with a legacy of IP laws left
behind by the British, and Independence in 1947, brought
with it the opportunity to break away from colonial IP
policy. Over the decades, while navigating the diplomatic
corridors of treaty negotiations, and attempting to
understand its national interests, India has carved out a
space for itself in intellectual property. This space,
while distinctive, is, at times, also incomprehensible.
The 1950s and 1960s saw a churn in India-s approach to IP

ISBN : 9780199468225.

This book analyses the interface between medicine and
colonial society through the lens of gender. The work
traces the growth of hospital medicine in nineteenth
century Bengal and shows how it created a space-albeit
small-for providing western health care to female
patients. It observes that, unlike in the colonial setup,
before the advent of hospital medicine women were treated
mostly by female practitioners of indigenous therapies
who had commendable skill as practitioners. The book also
explores the linkages of growth of medical education for
women and the role of the Brahmo Samaj in this process.

This is more than a history of the French Revolution. It
covers all Europe during the revolutionary period, though
events in France naturally take first place. It is
particularly good on the social and intellectual
background. Surprisingly enough, considering that
Lefebvre was primarily an economic historian, it also
breaks new ground in its account of international
relations, and sets the wars of intervention in their
true light. The French have a taste for what they call
works of synthesis, great general summaries of received
