This volume explores the crisis of identity that faced Russia before and after the Revolution. The essays discuss how a re-evaluation of national identity challenged widely held ideas and rocked traditional institutions such as the Church. Local notables, peasants, artists and the intelligentsia all gorged new identities in relation to their own perceptions of ”Russia”…Read MoreFor peasants this was the idea of Ukraine and Russia as “nations”; for artists such as the futurist poet Khlebnikov this was the contribution of the supranation, “Eurasia”. The essays take a fresh look at the Russian Revolution, showing great diversity, covering such areas as the Stolypin agrarian reform, the fracture of the intelligentsia, and Church reform, as well as encompassing the central focus of “identity”. Also included in this volume is Khlenikov’s manifesto “An Indo-Russian Union”, published here in Russian with a new English translation.

The Indian theory of government is expounded in this work on the basis of the textual sources, mainly of the Brāhmaṇas and te Ṛgveda. The mantra from the Aitareya Brāhmaṇa (VIII.27) by which the priest addresses the king,…Read Morespells out the relation between the spiritual and the temporal power. This “marriage formula” has its analogous applications in the cosmic, political, family and individual spheres of operation, in each by the conjunction of complementary agencies.
The welfare of the community in each case depends upon a succession of obediences and loyalties; that of the subjects to the dual control of king and priest, that of the king to the priest, and
that of all to the principle of an eternal law (dharma) as king of kings.
The revised edition, one of Coomaraswamy’s most significant writings, incorporates his own additions to the printed first edition of 1942.

Among all the religious monuments of the world, the stūpa has the longest uninterrupted historical development. Though modelled after the Indian prototype, the stūpa architecture was developed in all the countries where Buddhism had flourished. Over time, the structural shape of the stūpa underwent significant modifications in India and in other Asian Buddhist countries…Read More
The present study shows how Tibet became a treasure house of Buddhist culture highlighting important texts dealing with stūpa architecture. Various ritual activities associated with the construction of the stūpa are described along with the eight fundamental types of Tibeto-Buddhist stūpas and their main structural components. The value of the book is enhanced by appending the transliteration and English translation of four important Tibetan texts.
स्टाइलिस्टिक्स ऑफ अर्ली खमेर आर्टISBN : 81-7305-256-5Edited By :Mireille Benisti
(2003(2 vols.), xxxvi+388pp., illus.)
The present volume contains translations of Benisti’s major publications dealing with Khmer art. The main article is a study of the relations between early Khmer and Indian art, i.e. seventh and eighth centuries, the crucial period of the introduction of Indian religion and other components of Indian culture in the first well-organized kingdom of Khmer land…Read MoreShe has referred to the process of transfer of concepts and motifs; movable objects, such as statues, caskets, ritual objects, etc., transported from India to Khmer land and their decoration which could have inspired local artists.
Benisti held that art is a living entity and that it is always in a state of transformation. In this context, she has pointed out links and translations between different styles, moments of evolution in which a particular style abandoned some characters and adopted the primitive aspect of new characters of a later style.
Several articles contained in this volume bring to light moments of transition from one style to another. She has given precise definitions and analysis of decorative motifs – the bezelband, the makara, the voluted leaf, the beaded garland, pendant, etc. Her systematic survey of styles, along with detailed study of iconography, thus provides a solid foundation for a comprehensive study of Khmer art.

A standard code has been devised so that all subsequent studies will follow the same code. It is the monument which provides centrality to the region and
constitutes the steel frame for further studies on other aspects.

This uniquely detailed study of the most wooded districts in India-North Canara (Uttara Kannada) in the Western Ghāṭs, Karnataka, reveals that economic stake as well as a conservation agenda were at the centre of the British forest policy in the area…Read MoreThe study also argues that one of the most destructive consequence of colonial intervention was the disruption of social organization, which was originally closely linked to the environment. In understanding these socio-economic changes, one may find some answers to the challenge of contemporary attempts to reconcile the needs of the local communities with the conservation of a vulnerable environment.
