Reviews:- The noble aims for which Jawaharlal Nehru passionately worked all his life were derived from his adherence to the ideal of humanism and his respect for the individual. The present work by Shri A.P. Saxena, a distinguished administrator and author, cogently brings out the sources of Nehru’s inspiration for humanism and illustrates his commitment to this cause and represents a scholarly contribution in the filed of Nehruvian studies. Dr. Karan Singh Through his vast writings spanning several decades Jawaharlal Nehru enlarged, and indeed redefined, our understanding of humanism, the supremacy of the spirit of man and the high ideals of justice and equity imbued with compassion, from all angles and in all walks of life. Today our society and the world have to remind themselves that the spirit of humanism which suffuses and radiates from Nehru’s writings and speeches, not only provides the healing touch but also paves the path constructively for peace, harmony and civilizational progress to which humanity aspires. A.P. Saxena, a well-known scholar on Nehru, has delved deeply into the extensive corpus of Nehru’s writings and presented a scholarly study to enrich the field of Nehruvian studies -T.N. Chaturvedi The world over, the word ‘humanism’ seems to be used in a variety of ways, some quite contradictory to each other! Even within the formal international humanist movement, individuals and organizations describe humanism in different ways. A largely accepted enunciation, and my own favourite, is Eysenck’s celebrated phrase “reason in the service of compassion”, which for the sake of greater semantic linkage, I like to put as “human values through human self – reliance”. A.P. Saxena’s analysis of Nehru’s humanism brings out both these elements quite eloquently – his passionate empathy with the toiling masses of India, his advocacy of peace for the war and violence torn humanity in the world and his clear rejection of reliance on supra-human or supernatural powers or beliefs for pursuing any goals. The prose is elegant and refreshing and the argument clearly given. -Prakash Narain A.P. Saxena has dedicated himself to Nehru studies. He has written several books on Nehru, covering diverse aspects, and now adds one more volume to that valuable collection. Nehru left his mark on modern India in many ways: he was a celebrator of unity in diversity, a modernizer, a promoter of science, the builder of parliamentary democracy, the creator of the countrys foreign policy and the exemplar of civilized politics. Above all, he was a humanist. He was not a religious man in the ordinary sense, but was imbued with a profound love for and belief in the people of India, and indeed of the world. What he called secularism was in fact a combination of humanism and pluralism. It is that aspect that this book studies. It is a welcome and significant addition to the literature on the subject. -Ramaswamy R. Iyer Contents:- Foreword Preface Acknowledgements 1. With Kisans The Prison Gates 2. Self Suffering 3. Towards Humanism 4. Scientific Humanism 5. An Overview Annexures Index.

DESCRIPTION The millions of Indians are dumb – But the press gives them a tongue” Kristo Das Pal, 1838-1884 “Again and again has India asked ‘Which way lies salvation? In the dim past, it was the obstinate questioning of the individual soul…. In the living present it is the tortured cry of the soul of India” Chittaranjan Das, 1870-1925 “I advise you to be faithful to party, but always put the nation above it” Srinivasa Sastri, 1869 – 1946 The English creations of eminent Indian during the British Raj contain hidden treasures. The book digs them out of their unmerited obscurity and anthologizes some thirty-eight of them for their extraordinary richness as literature, political philosophy and as source material for history. In addition, it is the first time ever history of Indian eloquence in English. It is of interest of the initiated and the scholarly as well as to the assorted crowd of readers who peer into a book of pleasure.

Anyone who is planning on carrying out research in South Asia or indeed, simply wishes to understand little about this cultural heartland should read this enthralling, chronological overview, beginning in the geological past and continuing to the present day. By studying the main forces which brought about historic, linguistic and economic development, Professor Chapman contends that the lynchpin of this sub-continent’s story is a geo-political one. In addition to the material on the Northwest frontier, Afghanistan and Kashmir which was added for the second edition, the Northeastern borderlands are also now examined in this fully revised third edition. The current geopolitical state of the region is completely updated and greatly enhanced.

About the Book: Two important historical events occurred that significantly influenced the course of Indian Manufacturing happened from c.1500 of the Christian era. One was the entry of European merchants through sea route pioneered by Vasco-da-Gama in c.1498, and the other was the beginning of the Mughal Empire in c.1526. These two events provided necessary and sufficient conditions for the emergence of traditional flexible manufacturing in India. These were also two intertwined episodes of globalization that performed vital role in determining the pattern of growth of the Indian manufacturing. The Mughal Empire created an integrated economy of continental size whereas European trading companies expanded the commercial connectivity of the Indian economy to Europe and South and South East Asia.
