Terrorism is simply one of the several tools employed by the insurgents. Today the whole world is facing the threat of terrorism. The present book deals not only with the world terrorism but also highlights the crucial condition arise in India because of Terrorism.

Printed Pages: 176., Kaveri Books, New Delhi, 2005, Permanent Black/Orient BlackSwan Pvt. Ltd, 2009. Softcover. New. 14 x 21 cm. Scholars have long debated the very idea of a ‘Bengal Renaissance’. Their controversies have dwelt almost entirely over whether there was anything like a ‘renaissance’ at all, and its significance or otherwise from social, political, and cultural perspectives. This book addresses the issue from a very different framework. Subrata Dasgupta—an eminent scientist and author of a highly regarded intellectual biography of the scientist Jagadis Chandra Bose—approaches the topic from the perspective of philosophy of science and the psychology of creativity. His intention is to show that the phenomenon of the Bengal Renaissance is characterized by a certain collective cognitive identity, which had its roots in the work of the British Orientalists, beginning with William Jones, and which took form amidst a small but remarkable community of highly creative individuals in nineteenth-century Bengal. The most notable figures in this creative community were the social reformer and savant Rammohun Roy; the poet Henry Derozio; the scholar-poet Michael Madhusudan Datta; the novelist Bankimchandra Chattopadhyay; pioneering scientists and medical men such as Mahendra Lal Sircar, Jagadis Chandra Bose, and Prafulla Chandra Ray; the mystic Sri Ramakrishna, the pedagogue Swami Vivekananda; and the all-encompassing literary figure Rabindranath Tagore. The core work of each of these major figures is outlined for its distinctive style, analysed for its contribution to an intellectual milieu, and assessed for its effect on cultural life. The author unveils in detail the precise cognitive nature of the respective creative endeavours of these key figures, especially in the realms of Indology, theology, literature, science, and practical religion. He demonstrates the ‘cross-cultural mentality’ and the interest in ‘universalism’ that characterize the work of these cultural icons. He argues that the creativity manifested by these individuals and the resulting shared cognitive identity were sufficiently radical and represent a genuine cognitive revolution in Indian history. Written in completely accessible and elegant English, this is a work for general readers. Those unfamiliar with the basics of the Bengal Renaissance will find it an excellent introduction to the area; scholars familiar with the area will find this perspective on cultural history from the perspective of science and psychology quite novel, unusual, and compelling.

Support Independent Pacific Northwest Booksellers! Trade paperback (US). Glued binding. 250 p. Audience: General/trade. Against the backdrop of the early development of Palestinian-Jewish and Israeli society, James Horrox explores the history of the kibbutz movement: intentional communities based on cooperative social principles, deeply egalitarian and anarchist in their organisation. "defining influence of anarchist currents in the early kibbutz movement has been one of official Zionist historiography's best-kept secrets..It is against this background of induced collective amnesia that A Living Revolution makes its vital contribution. James Horrox has drawn on archival research, interviews and political analysis to thread together the story of a period all but gone from living memory, presenting it for the first time to an English-reading audience. These pages bring to life the most radical and passionate voices that shaped the second and third waves of Jewish immigration to Palestine, and also encounter those contemporary projects working to revive the spirit of the kibbutz as it was intended to be, despite, and because of, their predecessors' fate. " Uri Gordon, from the foreword "A brilliant study of anarchism in the kibbutz movement, particularly regarding economy and polity. Revealing the roots and processes of the influx of anarchist ideas and practices into the early Jewish labour movement, assessing the actual kibbutz practice and seeing the kibbutzim as both a model way to live and a set of experiments to learn from, Horrox gives this history the meticulous attention it deserves. A Living Revolution is comprehensive, caring and even passionate, but also critical. Horrox's study is an exemplary undertaking we can learn much from. " Michael Albert, editor Znet and Z Magazine "James Horrox's accessible and clear history of the kibbutz movement and its intellectual roots is interesting and informative. Sensitive to political contexts in which the movement has operated, it provides a refreshing reminder of the constructive possibilities of anarchist ideas. " Ruth Kinna, edi. .

In this history of radical publishing at the turn of the century, Elliott Shore focuses on the 'Appeal to Reason,' the flagship newspaper of J. A. Wayland's publishing empire. As modern periodical publishing came of age with the appearance of the first mass-circulation newspapers and magazines, so too did both populism and socialism in the United States. They drew strength from the same factors-the advance of technology, spreading industrialization, the growth and concentration of urban populations, and rising literacy rates. In the 'Appeal to Reason' the two powerful and important forces journalism and radicalism came together. <BR>Between 1900 and 1910 the circulation of the 'Appeal to Reason' grew to more than half a million, placing it among the nation's leading weeklies. Its editors and writers included such prominent figures of the socialist movement as Eugene Debs and Upton Sinclair. Published for twenty-five years in Girard, Kansas, it was the most successful socialist institution in this country, unifying the movement from coast to coast. <BR>The 'Appeal' belongs equally to the history of radicalism and to the history of journalism. Shore examines it from both perspectives. He presents the inner workings of the socialist press and by focusing on Wayland, explores the possibilities of peaceful but fundamental change at the time when America became a mass consumer culture. <BR>'In what might be considered a companion piece to Nick Salvatore's Eugene V. Debs, Shore has written a skillfully researched, penetratingly interpretive, and handsomely illustrated biography of Wayland that analyzes the role of the socialist press during an important period in the history of American radicalism.' 'Journal of American History.' <BR>'Shore has provided a wealth of new insights and a plethora of detail in chronicling not merely the rise and fall of the Appeal to Reason but also the dramatic life of its founder and guiding light. . . . An expert in the history of the alternative press, Shore displays considerable perception in handling this intriguing subject. . . . He has written a fine, worthwhile book that may help readers formulate an answer to the question, 'Why is there no socialism in America?'' 'American Historical Review.' <BR>'Was it ultimately a good strategy to try to sell socialism through the techniques of modern capitalist advertising and promotion? What happened when socialism was brought into the new popular culture of consumption and mass media? Shore explores these fascinating questions in his thoughtful, well-written book.' 'Indiana Magazine of History.' <BR>'In examining the only mass circulation socialist newspaper in America, Shore illuminates the indigenous political and cultural roots of the socialist movement and aids us in understanding central aspects of the American political tradition.'
