9780810847705: Historical Dictionary of India (Historical Dictionaries of Asia, Oceania, and the Middle East)

The Republic of India is the second most populous, the seventh largest by geographical area, and has the fourth largest economy in terms of purchasing power parity in the world. While it has always been an important country, it has often been neglected. Of late, however, there has been much talk of the "new" India, one with greater economic dynamism, a more active foreign policy, and the emergence of a huge middle class.

With over a hundred new cross-referenced dictionary entries-the majority of which pertain to the last decade-and updating others, the second edition of the Historical Dictionary of India illustrates the rapidly evolving situation without neglecting the country's ancient past. The chronology has been brought up to date, the introduction expanded, and the bibliography includes numerous new titles.

About the Author:

Surjit Mansingh recently retired as professor of International Politics at the School of International Studies, Jawaharlal Nehru University, and teaches part-time at the American University.

Review:

...a powerful addition to the series of historical dictionaries of Asia and the Mid-East....Listings do more than provide a paragraph of detail: history and biography embrace pages of detail, at times, and are packed with in-depth coverage suitable for reports. (California Bookwatch, Vol. 1, No. 10 (December 2006))

...has brief entries describing people; places; events; institutions; political parties; and social, cultural, and religious issues. (Booklist, 1/1/2007)

...will be of great assistance to the reader seeking to understand this great country....much valuable background reading presented in a friendly and helpful manner in this book. (Reference Reviews, Vol. 21, No. 6 (2007))

This is certainly an excellent reference book and is recommended highly for all collections. (American Reference Books Annual, vol. 38 (2007))

In this update of the 1996 edition, Mansingh (retired, international politics, Jawaharlal Nehru U., New Delhi), who now teaches part-time at the American U. in Washington, DC, provides a substantial introduction to this ancient country. She emphasizes modern India's democratic nature, rising stature as a global economic power, and the diversity of its huge but slowing in growth rate population. Entries feature geographical, cultural, religious, historical, and political facets and figures of this fascinating land. E.g., there are entries on its film industry, HIV/AIDS problem, and Bene Israel community. (Reference and Research Book News, August 2006)
