This book explores the moral discourses on the practice
of medicine in the foundational texts of Ayurveda. The
classical ayurvedic treatises were composed in Sanskrit
between the first and the seventh centuries CE, and later
works, dating into the sixteenth century CE, are still
considered strongly authoritative. As author shows, these
works testify to an elaborate system of medical ethics
and etiquette. Physicians looked to the ayurvedic
treatises for a guide to professional conduct. Ayurvedic
discourses on good medical practice depict the physician
as highly-educated, skilled, moral, and well-mannered.

conservative bloggers, right-wing talk show hosts,
evangelical religious leaders and politicians, all united
in their quest to exhume the ghosts of 9/11 and convince
their compatriots that Islam is the enemy. Lean uncovers
their scare tactics, reveals their motives and exposes
the ideologies that drive their propaganda

This book is a highly innovative contribution to the
study of popular culture. Focusing on the youth cultures
that revolve around dance clubs and raves, it highlights
the values of authenticity and hipness, and explores the
complex hierarchies that emerge within the domain of
popular culture. Using a combination of methods, the book
paints a picture of club cultures as "taste cultures"
brought together by micro-media (like flyers and
listings), transformed into self-conscious "subcultures"
by niche media (like the music and style press), and
sometimes recast as "movements" with the aid of mass
media (like tabloid newspaper front pages).

However, a growing number of countries have adopted

Despite the existence of government policies and

India. Taking State Child Labour Programme (SCLP)
implemented in Karnataka as a case, this book suggests
the institutional changes that are needed to tackle the
problem of child labour. SCLP did well in the
identification and rehabilitation of child labourers. In
order to reduce the problem of child labour, the
government should rehabilitate children through
residential bridge schools, reserve seats in the
government schools with hostels for rehabilitated child
labourers and provide appropriate vocational education to
children uninterested in regular school education.

This book analyses multi-level governance in competition
policy, or "antitrust federalism" as it is called by
students of competition policy, in the US and the EU from
a comparative perspective. The book compares how
competition laws and authorities of different levels -
the federal and the state levels in the US and the
national and the supranational levels in the EU -
interact with each other. The EU and the US stand among
the strongest existing examples of multi-level polities
and they developed mature competition policies. Despite
such similarities, however, recent developments imply
that they are moving in different directions in the field
of antitrust federalism. The book is essentially
multidisciplinary in its effort to initiate dialogue
between the Law and Political Science literatures in this
field. This book will be of particular interest to
academics, students and practitioners of

Bringing together twelve stories from Thakurmar Jhuli,
originally compiled by Dakshinaranjan Mitra Majumdar in
1907, this book opens a window to the true spirit of
grandmother-s yarns. From -Dalim Kumar-, the story of a
prince who has to match his wits against a demoness to
save his brothers to -Fox the Schoolteacher-, a morbid
tale about a wily fox whose evil deeds leads to his own
downfall, these stories are told in a language that is
simple and full of rhymes and songs. Originating in
centuries-old tales passed down through generations in
the villages of Bengal, the collection recovers the fast-
disappearing heritage of traditional fairytales that were
once an oral legacy of every child in India. These twelve
stories-freshly translated for the volume and accompanied
by evocative line drawings-capture the spirit of the
original stories while retaining their readability.
