Aesthetics is no longer merely the philosophy of
perception and the arts. Nelson Goodman, Arthur Danto and
others have contributed to develop the former marginal
field to one permeating substantial areas of theoretical
and practical philosophy. New approaches like
environmental and ecological aesthetics widened the

Jain individuals, businesses and charities have played a
powerful role in India’s rise and within the global
Indian Diaspora. Jain communities are noted everywhere
for their contributions to business, the professions and
science. These successes are based on the principles of
interdependence and co-operation, with an emphasis on
long term consolidation rather than short-term bursts of
growth. Researchers and students interested in the ethics
of finance, accounting and economics will find Jainism
and Ethical Finance a scholarly and illuminating
evaluation of Jain Dharma as a non-western case study. In
the light of current concerns about the way global
finance and banking systems operate, this book offers a
timely alternative perspective.

This book brings together a unique collection of
theoretical and empirical analyses of women-s access to
land, labour and livelihoods in contemporary India. The
authors recognize that gender relations must be viewed
intersectionally, along with other social relationships
such as caste, ethnicity, religion, sexuality and age, in
order to inform an integrated analysis of women-s
persistent disadvantage in India. The chapters examine a
diverse range of rural and urban livelihoods within
sectors such as tea plantations, nursing, hair salons,
sex work and waste collection. Documenting the shifts in
these sectors in the context of economic liberalization,
the authors offer insights on the challenges of
development interventions as women negotiate shifts in
their livelihood options.

This book provides contexts for viewing the field of
political communication, examines political discourse,
media, and considers political communication-s evolution
inside the altered political communication landscape. The
authors bring together some of the most ground breaking
scholars in the field to reflect upon their areas of
expertise to address the importance of their areas of
study to the field, the major findings to date, including
areas of scholarly disagreement, on the topics, the
authors- perspectives, and unanswered questions for
future research to address. Their answers reveal that
political communication is a hybrid with complex
ancestry, permeable boundaries and interests that overlap
with those of related fields such as political sociology,
public opinion, rhetoric, neuroscience and the new hybrid
on the quad, media psychology.

This is an excellent works on the military and political

eminent historians. Englishmen can look back on their work
in India, if not with unalloyed satisfaction, at least
with some legitimate pride. They have conferred on the
people of India what is the greatest human blessing -
Peace. They have introduced Western Education, bringing
an ancient and civilised nation in touch with modern
thought, modern sciences, modern institutions and life.
They have built up an Administration which, though it
requires reform with the progress of the times, is yet
strong and efficacious. So a brief Economic History of
British India is therefore needed at the present time.

Crypto currency market has been growing fast since its
emergence in recent years. Moreover, digital finance has
forged the convergence of profit motives with social
objectives creating a class of large FinTech companies.
In addition, the underlying technology innovation may be
applied to a wide range of industries, not limited to
financial sector. Yet, few researches have been done to
study these phenomena. Hence, it is the task of this book
to shed light on the introduction and trends in FinTech,
block chain and token sales. Richly illustrated with
original lecture slides taught by the authors, this book
hopes to dispel the many misconceptions about block chain
and crypto currencies (especially bit coin, Initial Crypto-
Token Offering or ICO), as well as the idea that
businesses can be sustainable without a social dimension

Kieran Allen begins the task with an accessible and
comprehensive look at the ideas of Karl Marx. Dispensing
with the dryness of traditional explanations of Marx,
Allen shows how Marx-s ideas apply to modern society. The
first section briefly outlines Marx-s life and the
development of his work, then goes on to clearly explain
his key theories, including historical materialism and
surplus value. The second section examines alternatives
to capitalism, the concept of -anti-capitalism- and
provides concrete, contemporary examples of Marx-s
theories being put into practice in today-s world.

In this book, the author, who headed Nasscom from 2001 to
2008, explores the competition and cooperation in the IT
sector, and the role that Nasscom played in this. At the
end of the day, he concludes, it was the -compete but
cooperate- mantra that was the secret of the IT
industry-s - and Nasscom-s - success. Many countries, as
well as other industrial sectors in India, have expressed
an interest in adopting the Nasscom model and, here,
Karnik examines whether it can be replicated.

820.9355095409034 AGN 146622
This book is about Victorian women-s representations of
colonial life in India. These accounts contributed to
imperial rule by exemplifying an idealized middle-class
femininity and attesting to the Anglicisation of the
subcontinent. Writers described familiarly feminine modes
of experience, focusing on the domestic environment,
household management, the family, hobbies and pastimes,
romance and courtship and their busy social lives.
However, this book reveals the extent to which their
lives in India bore little resemblance to their lives in
Britain and suggests that the acclaimed transportation of
the home culture was largely an ideological construct
iterated by women writers in the service of the Raj.

This book examines neglected narratives of the Partition
of India in 1947 to study the traces left by this
foundational trauma on the national- and regional-
cultural imaginaries in India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh.
To arrive at a more complex understanding of how
Partition experiences of violence, migration, and
displacement shaped postcolonial societies and
subjectivities in South Asia, the author analyses,
through novels and short stories, multiple cartographies
of disorientation and anxiety in the post-Partition
period. The book illuminates how contingencies of
political geography cut across personal and collective
histories, and how these intersections are variously
marked and mediated by literature.
