We must not allow them to get away with it says Khushwant Singh while fearlessly stating his own reasons for championing the Emergency. This bold and thought provoking collection includes essays on Indira Gandhi's government the Nanavati Commissions report on the 1984 riots and the riots themselves as well as captivating pieces on the art of kissing and the importance of bathing. Alongside these are portraits of historical figures such as Bahadur Shah Zafar General Dyer Ghalib and Maharaja Ranjit Singh as well as candid profiles of the famous personalities he has known over the years revealing intimate details about their lives and characters. From his reflections on Amrita Sher Gil's alleged promiscuity to the experience of watching a pornographic film with a stoic R.K. Narayan this is Khushwant Singh at his controversial and iconoclastic best. Selected and edited by Sheela Reddy Why I Supported the Emergency Essays and Profiles covers three quarters of a century. Straight from the heart this is unadulterated Khushwant Singh. 296 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 73582

Excerpt: Hubert Horatio Humphrey, Jr. (May 27, 1911 - January 13, 1978), served under President Lyndon B. Johnson as the 38th Vice President of the United States. Humphrey twice served as a United States Senator from Minnesota, and served as Democratic Majority Whip. He was a founder of the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party and Americans for Democratic Action. He also served as Mayor of Minneapolis, Minnesota, 1945-1949. In 1968, Humphrey was the nominee of the Democratic Party in the 1968 presidential election but lost to the Republican nominee, Richard Nixon. Humphrey was born in a room over his father's drugstore in the small town of Wallace, South Dakota. He was the son of Hubert Humphrey, Sr. (1882-1949) and Ragnild Kristine Sannes (1883-1973), who was a Norwegian immigrant. Humphrey spent most of his youth in the small town of Doland, South Dakota, on the Dakota prairie; during his years living in Doland the town's population was around 700. His father was the town pharmacist and a community leader; he served as Doland's mayor and as a town council member. In the late 1920s a severe economic downturn hit Doland; both of the town's banks closed and Humphrey's father struggled to keep his drugstore open. After his son graduated from Doland's high school, Hubert, Sr. left Doland and opened a new drugstore in the larger town of Huron, South Dakota (population 11,000), where he hoped to improve his fortunes. As a result of the family's financial struggles, Hubert had to leave the University of Minnesota after just one year to help his father in the new drugstore. He earned a pharmacist's license from the Capitol College of Pharmacy in Denver, Colorado (completing a two-year li. 92 pp. Englisch. Bookseller Inventory # 9781150967795

India`s White Revolution: Operation Flood, Food Aid and Development

Item Description: I B Tauris & Company/Viva Books, 2010. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. . (illustrator). First edition. . As millions return to food poverty, and protests against economic meltdown sweep the globe, crucial lessons can be learnt by considering how farmer-controlled cooperatives improved food security in India. India?s ?Operation Flood? between 1970 and 1996, was the largest ever dairy aid effort by the World Food Programme and the World Bank. However, most books on Operation Flood contain outdated claims that it mimicked the mistakes of the Green Revolution, by transferring inappropriate technology to India and displacing village women?s work. Critics feared it was a ?Trojan horse? luring India to neocolonial dependence on EEC surpluses. Verghese Kurien, now called the Father of the White Revolution, was accused of arrogant leadership of the parastatal National Dairy Development Board based in Anand, Gujarat, far from Delhi. Some doubted the ?Anand pattern? was replicable outside Gujarat ? however in 2008 the World Bank hailed its success and planned to replicate the low-input/low-output, environmentally-sustainable Anand Pattern in Africa. India?s White Revolution explains how the disincentives of food aid were managed by pricing policy changes, benefiting women, children and marginal farmers, and quenching urban ?milk famines? FAO data show that India surpassed the USA as the world?s top milk producer in the 1990s, as milk production tripled compared to that of 1970, and per capita consumption nearly doubled as population boomed. Cooperatives returned profits from procurement, processing and marketing to farming families, and invested monetised aid in the national milk grid infrastructure to stabilise supply. Development specialists will value this book for its analysis of relatively unknown data. Students will appreciate discussion of development in the context of mercantilism, colonialism, the Cold War, Fordism, and neoliberal globalisation in the WTO era. Its politicaleconomic lessons are relevant to debates on biofuel, intellectual property, poverty and private investment in poor countries. Bruce A. Scholten provides a dramatic narrative of an era when India?s farmers seized the double-edged sword of food aid. Contents: After the Deluge : Why Operation Flood requires a summing up ? Recurring Depression? Free trade in goods, services and capital too? ? Mercantilism to WTO: Why rich & poor drop protection for tariffication ? Food & Dairy Aid: Post-war effects on poverty & development ? Data on India & Comparators: Beyond expectations 1960s - 1990s ? Three Phases of Flood: OF-I, OF-II, OF-III win the White Revolution ? Index About the Author: Bruce A. Scholten is Honorary Research Fellow in the Department of Geography, Durham University. He has written on agricultural policy for a variety of international publications and his current research focus is the political economy of food. He grew up on a dairy farm near Lynden, Washington, USA. Printed Pages: 328. Bookseller Inventory # 22636
