Synopsis: Rock Art in the Old World is an invaluable documentation of what is probably the first manifestation of the creative urge of man. It consists of selected papers from the World Congress of Rock Art held in Darwin in 1988. For the first time rock art of very broad geographical regions covering the continents of Africa, Asia and Europe have been dealt within one book. Little known traditions such as the panorama of Chinese art and that of the former Soviet Union have been studied. Samples of rock art identified only recently have been described. The papers presented in this volume are convincing proof of the importance of the study of Rock Art, both for archaeology as also ethnology and lifestyle studies. The vast spectrum shows that although there has been a history of research on Rock Art, as a young discipline it is exploring various avenues of growth. Several of the papers indicate the extensive research carried out in India. The Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts (IGNCA) is a premier institution pursuing Rock Art research in a universal context. One important component of its programme is the establishment of the gallery of primeval sight called Adi Drsya, dedicated to everything that is understood by the word palaeo-art. This unique volume is the first in the IGNCA series of Rock Art Studies. It is meant for wide ranging specialists and students interested in human history and art.

Book Description New Delhi Publishers, 2015. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. 1st Edition. The present book is the outcome of sixteen articles which revolved around different issues related to women. The book provides discussion on women’s education, women’s health, women empowerment, contribution of women in societal and economic development, participation in grass roots politics, and violation of women rights, code of conduct of dress by faith etc. The articles found that despite having tremendous contribution in different fields, women are still being suppressed and oppressed in different forms of social, economic and political spheres in many parts of India. It has also explored that there is rampant poverty, lack of job opportunities, ill health, and widespread discrimination to the Indian women in all walks of life. After independence the condition of women has improved which further brought changes in the status of Indian women with provision of new opportunities for education and employment, emergence of new socio-economic pattern, and privileges of equal legal and political rights. To maintain the pace of transition that women experienced socially, economically, politically and culturally, it has to be preserved through proper rules and regulations and empowerment strategies. This book will prove very useful and helpful for various women’s organisations, social workers, research scholars and students engaged in this field. Bookseller Inventory # 116820
