Political violence in ancient India / Upinder Singh.--
Cambridge: Harvard University Press, 2017.
ISBN : 9780674975279.
303.60934 SIN 145990
This book argues that the idea of a nonviolent India is
an artificial twentieth-century construct deeply
influenced by Gandhi and Nehru. Ancient Indian history is
marked by considerable violence of various kinds, as is
the history of other parts of the world. This book looks
at the evolution of the theory and practice of kingship
and the attitudes towards political violence between c.
600 BCE and 600 CE by examining a vast array of texts,
inscriptions, artistic representations, and numismatic
and archaeological material. These include the ideas of
Buddhism and Jainism, the emperor Asoka, the Sanskrit
epics, the Ramayana and Mahabharata, the political
treatise, the Arthashastra, and the poetry of Kalidasa.
The book examines how the problem of the relationship
between kingship and violence was addressed in general as
well with reference to punishment, war and the forest.

This book analyses the multifaceted and multi-layered
character of Sino-Indian relations since the beginning of
the 21st century in a period marked by cooperation and
competition. It draws analytical leverage from two core
concepts - national identity and national interest - to
form the basis of the research inquiry. The author argues
that the dynamics of national identity and national
interest play an important role in determining their
relations and shows how and why in the current
international structure, including a context of
accelerated globalization, their national identities as
rising power and emerging power coupled with national
interest of economic development have defined and
directed their international positions and foreign policy

This is a guide book for the interested and ambitious
student. Non-partisan in its approach, it deals with all
the major topics, summarizing the important approaches
and providing the reader with a coherent angle on all
aspects of macroeconomic thought. Using nothing more than
undergraduate mathematical skills, it takes the student
from basic IS-LM style macro models to the state of the
art literature on Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium,
explaining the mathematical tricks used where they are
first introduced. This third edition of Foundations of
Modern Macroeconomics now includes brand new chapters
covering highly topical subjects such as dynamic
programming, competitive risk sharing equilibrium and the
New Keynesian DSGE approach.

Pierre Wack was head of scenario planning at Royal Dutch
/ Shell Oil in London for just over ten years. He died in
1997. He was a pioneer of what we know today as scenario
planning - an alternative and complement to strategic
planning. Scenarios explore a variety of possible futures
for examining decisions in organizational planning. His
experiences with Eastern thought no doubt shaped his
ability to evolve the scenario method at Shell, and as a
result he was able to lead a team that foresaw the oil
crises of the 1970-s and 80-s.This book will cover the
basic context of his life timeline and attach it to the
development of his thinking about scenario planning over
the course of his career.

This book is a collection of Devi Prasad-s essays on
Gandhi,social justice and social change. The different
essays address themes ranging from Gandhi-s ideals of
satyagraha and ahimsa, civil disobedience and non-
violence, to the Gandhian approach to education as
founded in making and crafting as well as participation
in the political and social movements of our times. They
also engage the revolutionary potential of Gandhi-s
thought, drawing parallels between Lenin and Gandhi and
analyzing the historical significance of Gandhi-s anti-
imperialist yet non-violent political philosophy. In sum,
the book dwells on the continuing, critical relevance of
Gandhi in our times.
