About this Item: D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd., New Delhi, 2004. Hardcover. Condition: New. 2nd edition. In mankind`s history, India`s is the longest literary tradition - "so ancient that it cannot be illustrated either by contemporary books or from monuments". The Rgveda, indisputably the oldest literary work, was written at a time when many a great, old-world civilization lay in the wombs of futurity. And almost equal is the antiquity of the Puranas which, considered as "the fifth Veda", figure distinguished among the traditional sources : Vedic Samhitas, Brahmanas, Srutis and Smrtis, Dharmasastras, epics (the Ramayana and the Mahabharata), tantra manuals, and myriad Buddhist and Jaina texts, - that have helped historiographers unravel the landmarks in the subcontinental civilization. Bulky and often crowded with legendary, religious and philosophical matters of various kinds, the PURANAS record the genealogies of Hindu deities, the reigns of the Manus, and chronicles of Solar, Lunar and other ancient dynasties. Professor G.P. Singh tries afresh to establish their historicity, surveying the whole extent of Itihasa-Pnrann : the early Indian historical tradition, founded on the Puranic literature. Meticulously sifting facts from myths, legends, and philosophic reflections in this monumental corpus of yore, the book reconstructs millennia of ancient India`s political and cultural history : from the pre-Bharata War days to about 1200 AD (the post-Harsa period) - with both genealogical and chronological details of all dynasties/kingdoms that rose and fell in different regions of the Indian subcontinent. Contextually, the author analyses threadbare the Puranic evidence to also review the "date" of the Mahabharata War. In thematically exploring the historicity of all different Puranas, Dr. Singh is at pains to show how far the Puranic accounts are validated by other traditional writings on the one hand, and archaeological evidence on the other. With prolific bibliographic references and a number of chronological/genealogical tables, his book will interest the scholars/researchers of Indology, ancient Indian history and archaeology. Contents Preface 1. Introduction 2. From Manu Vaivasvata to the Accession of Parikshit 3. The Dynasties and Kingdoms of the Post-Bharata war Period (From the Accession of Parikshit to the End of the Barhadratha Dynasty) 4. The Pradyota Dynasty (c. 513-411 B.C.) 5. Magadhan Dynasties of the pre-Maurya Period (From Bimbisara to the End of the Nanda Dynasty c. 543-321 B.C.) 6. The Maurya and the Post-Maurya Dynasties down to the Satavahanas (c. 321 B.C.-225 A.D.) 7. The Naga Dynasties (From the Second Century B.C. to the Fourth Century A.D.) 8. The Vakatakas and the Guptas (From the Third to the Sixth Century A.D.) 9. Kingdoms and Dynasties of the post-Harsa Period (c. 650-1200 A.D.) 10. Minor Kingdoms and Dynasties 11. Conclusion Printed Pages: 245. Seller Inventory # 1480

About this Item: Anmol Publications Pvt. Ltd., 2000. Paperback. Condition: New. The purpose of this book is the presentation of the History of Modern Europe and the World since the outbreak of the French revolution. The theme of this book is the relations of the great powers of Europe to one another. The French revolution inaugurated a new epoch in the history of the human race and it gave a deathblow to feudalism. Napoleon`s astonishing rise to power, the vast scale of his achievements, which appealed alike to the imagination of posterity. The peace settlement that emerged from the congress of Vienna failed to satisfy the national sentiments. Metternich, the hero of the Vienna congress tried his best to put the clock back, but he was swept away by the wave of popular movement. The revolution of 1830 and 1848 had a deep impact throughout the continent, but it could not create either a united Italy or United Germany. The little Napoleon (Napoleon III) intended to be the hero of the drama, but he was a misfit. After 1848, Czarist Russia became the main prop of the political status quo in central Europe. Russia was defeated on its own group in Crimea. This demonstration of an unexpected weakness in the Czarist autocracy allowed two daring political gamblers, Cavour of Sardinia and Bismarck of Prussia, to unite Italy and Germany around their respective monarchs between 1859 and 1871. In an "Era of Armed Peace." Bismarck played the role of Juggler. But the accession of Kaiser William II changed the course of events and the world plunged into a catastrophic end (The First World War). The old states of Europe dominated the scene throughout the 19th century and now (20th century) they were pushed back into oblivion. In 1917 the Communist revolution in Russia and the proclamation of a rival American remedy-"National self-determination"-brought powerful new political ideologies to the fore. Both the USA and USSR deliberately withdrew from world affairs in the 1920`s, until new upheavals, centering in Germany and Japan, provoked World War II and a massive reassertion of Russia and American power. Since 1945 these two super powers continued to dominate the world`s political and military scene. In an age of conflict, a rising star in the Eastern horizon, India spread a new mantra- Panchsheel-a panacea for diseases like colonialism, imperialism, racism, etc. The present book will be of Immense help to the students, examinees of the various competitive examinations and it will also be attractive to those readers who seek a clear understanding of this period.

About this Item: D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd., New Delhi, 2004. Hardcover. Condition: New. 2nd edition. In mankind`s history, India`s is the longest literary tradition - "so ancient that it cannot be illustrated either by contemporary books or from monuments". The Rgveda, indisputably the oldest literary work, was written at a time when many a great, old-world civilization lay in the wombs of futurity. And almost equal is the antiquity of the Puranas which, considered as "the fifth Veda", figure distinguished among the traditional sources : Vedic Samhitas, Brahmanas, Srutis and Smrtis, Dharmasastras, epics (the Ramayana and the Mahabharata), tantra manuals, and myriad Buddhist and Jaina texts, - that have helped historiographers unravel the landmarks in the subcontinental civilization. Bulky and often crowded with legendary, religious and philosophical matters of various kinds, the PURANAS record the genealogies of Hindu deities, the reigns of the Manus, and chronicles of Solar, Lunar and other ancient dynasties. Professor G.P. Singh tries afresh to establish their historicity, surveying the whole extent of Itihasa-Pnrann : the early Indian historical tradition, founded on the Puranic literature. Meticulously sifting facts from myths, legends, and philosophic reflections in this monumental corpus of yore, the book reconstructs millennia of ancient India`s political and cultural history : from the pre-Bharata War days to about 1200 AD (the post-Harsa period) - with both genealogical and chronological details of all dynasties/kingdoms that rose and fell in different regions of the Indian subcontinent. Contextually, the author analyses threadbare the Puranic evidence to also review the "date" of the Mahabharata War. In thematically exploring the historicity of all different Puranas, Dr. Singh is at pains to show how far the Puranic accounts are validated by other traditional writings on the one hand, and archaeological evidence on the other. With prolific bibliographic references and a number of chronological/genealogical tables, his book will interest the scholars/researchers of Indology, ancient Indian history and archaeology. Contents Preface 1. Introduction 2. From Manu Vaivasvata to the Accession of Parikshit 3. The Dynasties and Kingdoms of the Post-Bharata war Period (From the Accession of Parikshit to the End of the Barhadratha Dynasty) 4. The Pradyota Dynasty (c. 513-411 B.C.) 5.

About this Item: Anmol Publications Pvt. Ltd., 2000. Paperback. Condition: New. The purpose of this book is the presentation of the History of Modern Europe and the World since the outbreak of the French revolution. The theme of this book is the relations of the great powers of Europe to one another. The French revolution inaugurated a new epoch in the history of the human race and it gave a deathblow to feudalism. Napoleon`s astonishing rise to power, the vast scale of his achievements, which appealed alike to the imagination of posterity. The peace settlement that emerged from the congress of Vienna failed to satisfy the national sentiments. Metternich, the hero of the Vienna congress tried his best to put the clock back, but he was swept away by the wave of popular movement. The revolution of 1830 and 1848 had a deep impact throughout the continent, but it could not create either a united Italy or United Germany. The little Napoleon (Napoleon III) intended to be the hero of the drama, but he was a misfit. After 1848, Czarist Russia became the main prop of the political status quo in central Europe. Russia was defeated on its own group in Crimea. This demonstration of an unexpected weakness in the Czarist autocracy allowed two daring political gamblers, Cavour of Sardinia and Bismarck of Prussia, to unite Italy and Germany around their respective monarchs between 1859 and 1871. In an "Era of Armed Peace." Bismarck played the role of Juggler. But the accession of Kaiser William II changed the course of events and the world plunged into a catastrophic end (The First World War). The old states of Europe dominated the scene throughout the 19th century and now (20th century) they were pushed back into oblivion. In 1917 the Communist revolution in Russia and the proclamation of a rival American remedy-"National self-determination"-brought powerful new political ideologies to the fore. Both the USA and USSR deliberately withdrew from world affairs in the 1920`s, until new upheavals, centering in Germany and Japan, provoked World War II and a massive reassertion of Russia and American power. Since 1945 these two super powers continued to dominate the world`s political and military scene. In an age of conflict, a rising star in the Eastern horizon, India spread a new mantra- Panchsheel-a panacea for diseases like colonialism, imperialism, racism, etc. The present book will be of Immense help to the students, examinees of the various competitive examinations and it will also be attractive to those readers who seek a clear understanding of this period.

Freedom movement in India forms an important epoch in the pages of history. Nationalism and patriotism are valuable sentiments as they generate a passion for political regeneration leading to the achievement of freedom. The great upheaval of 1857 was in reality a product of the accumulated grievances of the people against the British rule. It became a prelude to the long drama of the epoch making freedom movement. The colonial character of the British rule led to the development of a powerful anti imperialist movement in India. The year 1885 witnessed the birth of the Indian National Congress. Till the end of 19 century the Congress primarily demanded only reform not freedom. Indian nationalism nurtured by constitutional agitation and watered by the revolutionaries assumed a new dimension with the entry of Gandhi in Indian politics in 1919. The present publication is not only useful as a textbook to the students of several universities but also helps to stimulate an awakening of national consciousness among the younger generation. 288 pp. Seller Inventory # 52892

With its enormous geo ethnic diversity unique history and strategic location Nepal has undergone drastic changes following the democratic restoration of 1990. Sadly despite the proliferation of media and information technology rapid urbanization interconnectivity with the outside world implementation of democratic constitution and open and regular elections the new experiments have just been another rerun of our collective failures. It has really been a wild and bumpy democratic ride. Insurgency deaths devastation economic exploitation social disparities political lacuna and uncertainty mark our present day life. Who can tell what the future has in store for us. This volume with its encyclopedic scope is an intellectual assemblage of thirty nine of the finest minds of the country. What pushes these intellectuals apart is the powerful idiosyncrasy in their subjects of interest and expertise and what pulls them together is the sense of being a Nepali exerted on each of them driven by a common shared vision in an ongoing symbiosis to attempt to steer this stuttering nation toward the golden dawn of tomorrow. Each of these essays stands on its own focuses on contemporary Nepal but without being oblivious of the past and seeks remedies for the social political and ec. Seller Inventory # 52149

In mankind's history India's is the longest literary tradition so ancient that it cannot be illustrated either by contemporary books or from monuments. The Rgveda indisputably the oldest literary work was written at a time when many a great old world civilization lay in the wombs of futurity. And almost equal is the antiquity of the Puranas which considered as the fifth Veda figure distinguished among the traditional sources Vedic Samhitas Brahmanas Srutis and Smrtis Dharmasastras epics (the Ramayana and the Mahabharata) Tantra manuals and myriad Buddhist and Jaina texts that have helped historiographers unravel and landmarks in the subcontinental civilization. Bulky and often crowded with legendary religious and philosophical matters of various kinds the Puranas record the genealogies of Hindu deities the reigns of the Manus and chronicles of Solar Lunar and other ancient dynasties. Professor G.P. Singh tries afresh to establish their historicity surveying the whole extent of Itihasa Purana the early Indian historical tradition founded on the Puranic literature. Meticulously sifting facts from myths legends and philosophic reflections in this monumental corpus of yore the book reconstructs millennia of ancient India's political and cultural history from the pre Bharata War days to about 1200 AD (the post Harsa period) with both genealogical and chronological details of all dynasties/kingdoms that rose and fell in different regions of the Indian subcontinent. Contextually the author analyses threadbare the Puranic evidence to also review the date of the Mahabharata War. In thematically exploring the historicity of all different Puranas Dr. Singh is at pains to show how far the Puranic accounts are validated by other traditional writings on the one hand and archaeological evidence on the other. With prolific bibliographic references and a number of chronological/genealogical tables his book will interest the scholars/researchers of indology ancient Indian history and archaeology. 245 pp. Seller Inventory # 53229

About this Item: Roli Books Pvt Ltd. Hardback. Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Delhi: Red Fort to Raisina, J. P. Losty, Salman Khurshid, Ratish Nanda, Malvika Singh, 'Delhi: Red Fort to Raisina' traces the journey of Shahjahan's new capital of the Mughal Empire, Shahjahanabad built on the banks of river Yamuna in 1638 to New Delhi the new capital of British-ruled India in 1911. From Red Fort to Jama Masjid and from Jahanara Bagh to Hayat Bakhsh Bagh, every palace, mosque, bazaar, and bagh in the Mughal city was planned to perfection. The new city too, designed in the early twentieth century, was a blend of Mughal architecture and modern aesthetics. This book celebrates the centenary with four essays on different aspects of Delhi's history by JP Losty, Salman Khurshid, Ratish Nanda, and Malvika Singh. A lively portrait of the city and its culture and people, the book documents the transition of the oldworld charm of Shahjahanabad to a modern city with a new seat of power built on the Raisina Hill. Pramod Kapoor is a collector of historical records and photographs, and a publisher by profession. The photographs for this book were lovingly collected by him over a long period of time from all over the world. Often, the best photographs were found in old trunks lying forgotten in dusty attics or damp basements of the palaces. The biggest challenge, however, was to coax fading memories to remember names and places. A keen photographer, he has also compiled and researched photographs for pioneering books like 'India: Then and Now', 'Witness to Life and Freedom: Margaret-Bourke White in India', 'New Delhi: Making of a Capital', and the most recent 'Delhi: Red Fort to Raisina'.

The meteoric rise of Siddhartha to the enlightenment proves beyond any doubt that the realization of truth is quite possible for any sincere seeker endowed with vairaagya even without external help. The Buddha belonged to that genre of the enlightened who were not content with what they had achieved for themselves but also strove to help the humanity to get deliverance. Out of compassion towards the sorrowing millions the Buddha showed them Dhammapada a sure way of liberation from sorrow. The core of His Dhamma may be agreeable to all major religions of the world which might vary in their ritual practices. These religious practices may change from time to time but the principles of Dhamma defy time and clime. Buddha Dhamma is universal transcending all barriers territorial political cultural etc. Buddha's teachings are more relevant in the contemporary scenario of moral degradation religious terrorism chaotic politics mutual.
