This book is an enquiry into the integral philosophy of
Aurobindo and its contemporary relevance. It offers a
reading of Aurobindo’s key texts by bringing them into
conversation with religious studies and the hermeneutical
traditions. The central argument is that Aurobindo’s
integral philosophy is best understood as a hermeneutical
philosophy of religion.

In this book, the author provides students with a clearly
written, user-friendly, hands-on guide to media
criticism. The book empowers readers to make their own
analyses of the media rather than just accept how others
interpret the media. Media Analysis Techniques begins by
examining four basic techniques of media interpretation-
semiotic theory, Marxist theory, psychoanalytic theory,
and sociological theory-that Berger considers critical
for creative people to acknowledge if they are to
understand how their creations translate to the real

This book provides a systematic descriptive, explanatory
and normative analysis of the clash of normative orders
in Asia, and develops an analysis of Asian responses to
the challenge posed by a more diffuse people-centric
order and the implications this may have for global
justice. The book aims to study two paradigms of
political order -- a national statist sovereignty-based
order and a people-centric order, analyze the conflict
between two diverse political paradigms within an Asian
setting, and assess the various challenges a people-
centric order poses for a sovereignty-based order. It
also aims to address the paucity of Asian normative
thinking through a synthesis of intellectual sources and

In this book, the author argues that the traditional
economic analysis of the law has significant flaws and
has failed to answer certain critical questions
satisfactorily. He offers a provocative alternative to
how the relationship between economics and real-world law
enforcement should be understood. He summarizes standard,
neoclassical law and economics before looking at the
weaknesses underlying the discipline. Bringing modern
game theory to bear, he develops a "focal point"
approach, modelling not just the self-interested actions
of the citizens who must follow laws but also the
functionaries of the state-the politicians, judges and
bureaucrats-enforcing them. He demonstrates the
connections between social norms and the law and shows
how well-conceived ideas can change and benefit human

A Revolution in economic theory : the economics of Piero
Sraffa / Ajit Sinha.-- New Jersey: Palgrave Macmillan,

ISBN : 9783319306155.
This book draws on the work of one of the sharpest minds
of the 20th century, Piero Sraffa. Based on exhaustive
archival research, Sinha presents an exciting new thesis
that shows how Sraffa challenged the usual mode of
theorizing in terms of essential and mechanical causation
and, instead, argued for a descriptive or geometrical
theory based on simultaneous relations.

This book analyses the changing labour economy in post-
partition West Bengal. It explains how and why women and
girl children have replaced this traditionally male bias
in the gender segregated domestic service industry since
the late 1940s, and addresses the question of whether
this increase in vulnerable individuals working in
domestic service, the growth of the urban professional
middle class in the post liberalization period, and the
increasing incidences of reported abuses of domestics, in
urban middle class homes in the recent years, are related.

This book responds to the ongoing mass extinction crisis
engulfing our planet by exploring the ways in which
accounting, business and finance can be used to prevent
species extinctions. From Africa to the Far East and from
Europe to the Americas, the authors explore species loss
and how businesses can stop mass extinctions through
greater transparency, and through closer engagement with
their investors and wildlife organisations. The book
concludes that global capitalism has led us to this
extinction crisis and that therefore the mechanisms of
capitalism - namely accounting, finance, investment-can
help to pull us out.
