Rodolphe Gasche-s commentary on Deleuze and Guattari-s
last book, What Is Philosophy?, homes in on what the two
thinkers define as philosophy in distinction from the
sciences and the arts and what it is that they understand
themselves to have done while doing philosophy. Gasche is
concerned with the authors- claim not only that
philosophy is a Greek invention but also that it is, for
fundamental reasons, geophilosophical in nature. Gasche
finds that geocentrism is a central dimension of their
thinking.Indeed, Gasche argues, if all the principal
traits that constitute philosophy according to What is
Philosophy?-autochthony, philia, and doxa-imply in an
essential manner a concern with Earth, it follows that
what Deleuze and Guattari have been doing while engaging
in philosophy has been marked by this concern from the

Yoga in modern Hinduism : Hariharananda Aranya and
Samkhyayoga / Knut A Jacobsen.-- London: Routledge, 2018.

(Routledge South Asian religion , 8).
ISBN : 9781138080591.

This book analyses the yoga teaching of Hariharananda
Aranya (1869-1947) and the Kapil Math tradition, its
origin, history and contemporary manifestations, and this
tradition-s connection to the expansion of yoga and the
Yogasutra in modern Hinduism. The Samkhyayoga of the
Kapil Math tradition is based on the Patanjalayogasastra,
on a number of texts in Sanskrit and Bengali written by
their gurus, and on the lifestyle of the renunciant yogin
living isolated in a cave. The book investigates
Hariharananda Aranya-s connection to pre-modern yoga
traditions and the impact of modern production and
transmission of knowledge on his interpretations of yoga.
It connects the Kapil Math tradition to the nineteenth
century transformations of Bengali religious culture of
the educated upper class that led to the production of a
new type of yogin.

Adaptive markets : financial evolution at the speed of
thought / Andrew W Lo.-- Princeton: Princeton University

In this book, the author transforms the debate with a
powerful new framework in which rationality and
irrationality coexist--the Adaptive Markets Hypothesis.
Drawing on psychology, evolutionary biology,
neuroscience, artificial intelligence, and other fields,
the book shows that the theory of market efficiency is
incomplete. Lo-s new paradigm explains how financial
evolution shapes behavior and markets at the speed of
thought--a fact revealed by swings between stability and
crisis, profit and loss, and innovation and regulation.

This book brings two urgently needed insights to the
analysis of carbon markets. First, the markets must be
understood in relation to the politics involved in their
development, maintenance and opposition. Second, this
politics is multiform and pervasive. Implementation of
new techniques and measuring tools, policy development
and contestation, and the structuring context of
institutional settings and macro-social forces all
involve a variety of political actors and create new
forms of political agency.

Telecommunications was vital to the imperial project and
connecting India-the jewel in the British crown-was a key
priority. However, intercolonial rivalries outside and
within India as well as contestation between private and
public ownership of telecommunications made that task
difficult. The author explores these differences and ties
the history of Telegraph, cable and wireless in British
India to the evolving story of telecommunications in post
Independence India. This book examines the role of the
Telegraph, oceanic cables and the wireless in the context
of the political economy and compulsions of empire to
control global flows of communications.

As the world once again confronts an eruption of
authoritarianism, Gyan Prakash-s Emergency Chronicles
takes us back to the moment of India-s independence to
offer a comprehensive historical account of Indira
Gandhi-s Emergency of 1975-77. He delves into the
chronicles of the preceding years to reveal how the fine
balance between state power and civil rights was upset by
the unfulfilled promise of democratic transformation. He
explains how growing popular unrest disturbed Indira-s
regime, prompting her to take recourse to the law to
suspend lawful rights, wounding the political system
further and opening the door for caste politics and Hindu
