About this Item: New Century Publication, 2012. Hardcover. Condition: New. First edition. Of late, world economy has been passing through uncertain times. Indian economy is no exception to the general slowdown being experienced by several countries worldwide. The increasingly uncertain economic outlook requires a strategy shift on the part of companies to successfully face the impending downturn. Years of economic growth have made some companies complacent, and now is the time for them to prepare for worst-case scenarios. Winners and losers will emerge during any economic change, and mistakes can be all the more costly during uncertainty. To avoid getting sunk, the first thing to know is that uncertainty is not a time to pull back and hope to come out unscathed. A downturn can actually be good for a well-managed company. For example, saving costs is one alternative to stay profitable in a period of uncertainty. Acquisitions are also one means to consolidate in times of uncertainty. Ideally, managers should know all of this before a slowdown hits, and should work with the human resources department to develop a strategy for reassessment of employees and other factors of production. Against this background, this book aims at providing a compendium of articles and literature to the professionals, scholars and researchers on issues relating to managing a company in an uncertain economic era. The 21 papers included in the volume address various issues of managing in an uncertain era in a lucid way. The book provides an excellent opportunity for all those interested to update their knowledge on the concepts, processes and methodology in the Indian context. Curricular issues on the topic should also be an added attraction to the management teachers and researchers. Table of Contents 1. Human Resources Strategy During Uncertainty V. Sita 2.

About this Item: Orient BlackSwan, 2016. Softcover. Condition: New. First edition. About the Book For decades after independence, Indian planning ignored the need for sustainability and equity in water resource development and management. There was just one way forward, that of harnessing the bounty in our rivers and below the ground, and this strategy had almost completely unquestioned acceptance. It was only in the 1990s that serious questions began to be raised on the wisdom of our understanding and approach to rivers. Around the same time, the sustainability of our strategy of groundwater development under the Green Revolution also began to be interrogated.

Rivers have always been worshipped in India, and yet they are in a deplorable state today. The Ganga, regarded as holy and formally declared as the national river, and the Yamuna, the river of India's capital, are mortally sick. Many other rivers in the country are declining or dying. It is difficult to find living, healthy rivers, and even the few that exist are under threat of decline. Heavy pollution is a major cause of this situation, but there are also other factors, such as excessive abstractions or diversions of waters, and violence to their physical components such as the river-bed, banks, floodplains, and so on. Underlying such abuses is a poor understanding of what constitutes a river. This book goes into the present condition of several Indian rivers, their various states of decline or health, and the factors that have had an effect on their well-being. It explores also the deeply flawed attitudes and approaches towards rivers and towards the environment in general. The chapters by diverse authors make a plea for a proper understanding of our rivers in all their complexity, for a healthy relationship with them, and for a radical re-examination of what constitutes true development. This compilation is important as a detailed river-wise account of the situation, and serves as an aid to understanding what has gone wrong (or right in a few cases) and what needs to be done in order to restore our rivers to vibrant health.

It was only in the 1990s that serious questions began to be raised on the wisdom of our understanding and approach to rivers. Around the same time, the sustainability of our strategy of groundwater development under the Green Revolution also began to be interrogated. (jacket). Seller Inventory # 118058

Adivasi Movement of Chhattisgarh/Mita Sarkar (Das). 16. Forest Conflicts in India/Jaya Phookan. The history of tribal social movements in India is very old. These social movements have impacted tribal culture and tradition in multiple ways. Initially most of these movements were local and largely reformative in character. But as interaction of tribals with outside forces, culture and tradition increased, the nature, magnitude and intensity of social movements also increased. In contrary to the past, gradually these movements shifted from the issue of social transformation in their culture and lifestyle to their dignity, honour, human rights and so on. Of late, electronic media and civil society organizations have provided significant space to these movements, both at the local level and at national and international level. Hence, the support base, either passive or active, of these movements have substantially increased during last couple of decades. In many cases these movements have either halted, slowed or forced the change agents to rethink on the model of development introduced in tribal areas. Articles included in the book deal with nature, types, history and consequences of social movements going on in tribal India, both in historical and contemporary perspective. Articles are both theoretical as well as field based. Attempts have been made by contributors to search roots and nature of changing interface between tribes and their local ecology and environment. The book will be useful for planners, policy makers, change agents, researchers and other professionals. (jacket). Seller Inventory # 116519

About this Item: Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., New Delhi, India. Hard Cover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. First Edition. History of Science and Philosophy of Science, a primarily interdisciplinary study, deals with the historical and philosophical perspectives of science and explores the mutuality of the relations between the two disciplines. To present the study in a reader-friendly format, it has been divided into two parts, with the first volume (Part 6) dedicated to the ‘history?of science and the second volume (Part 7) to the ‘philosophy?of science. The first volume, History of Science and Philosophy of Science: A Historical Perspective of the Evolution of Ideas in Science, seeks to present a history of science where science is believed to proceed along with the operation of a number of mechanisms that are instrumental to its growth, thus making science a part of a creative culture. This part works out the relation not between history and the history of science, but between science and the history of science. Though the volume focuses mainly on physics and mathematics, it also includes essays on life sciences and consciousness studies. The order of essays is guided not by chronology but by a philosophical interpretation of the development of major reforms and revisions in the field of science both in India and abroad. Some authors have paid full attention to Indian science and its logic, while some others have preferred to deal with Western science. Presented in a fairly non-technical language and readily accessible even to non-specialists, these volumes will be of interest to researchers and well-informed general readers. SECTION I: THE COSMOS AND THE CLASSICAL WORLD 1. History, Evolution and Scientific Revolution D. P. Chattopadhyaya 2. Microcosm–Macrocosm: Some Reflections B. V. Subbarayappa 3.

The Volumes of the Project on the History of Science, Philosophy and Culture in Indian Civilization aim at discovering the main aspects of India’s heritage and present them in an interrelated way. In spite of their unitary look, these volumes recognize the difference between the areas of material civilization and those of ideational culture. The project is not being executed by a single group of thinkers and writers who are methodologically uniform or ideologically identical in their commitments. The project is marked by what may be called methodological pluralism. In spite of its primarily historical character this project, both in its conceptualization and execution, has been shaped by scholars drawn from different disciplines. It is for the first time that an endeavour of such a unique and comprehensive character has been undertaken to study critically a major world civilization. The subject matter of the present volume in two parts concerns every ordinary citizen inasmuch as it is a foundational right and a duty of everyone to know and understand the polity and constitutional culture under which we are governed. This volume is divided into two parts-Part 5A on Indian Polity, Governance and the constitution and Part 5B on “Federalism, Elections, Government and Rule of Law”. Both the parts start with an introduction which presents the overview theme paper. Part 5A starts with section I on the philosophy of the constitution and concept of Indian polity. Section II is on the making of the constitution. Section III deals with the principles of Governance, human rights, directive principles of fundamental duties. Section IV consists of one comprehensive chapter on impact of India’s constitution on her foreign policy and constitutional buil. Seller Inventory # 116080
