Gopa Kumar, G.
Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru - the First Prime Minister of Independent India - was the embodiment of spirit and ideals of democracy, socialism, secularism, nationalism, equality and social justice. Estimating the contemporary significance and historical relevance of Nehru will always remain a challenging task for the students of social sciences. Nehru continues to remain a crucial link between the evolution of India's contemporary nationalism and the transition towards a middle-range power among the countries of the modern world. Along with other great stalwarts of freedom movement, Nehru was successful and practical in envisioning a modern India. Given the complex social, cultural, political and historical background of the Continent, this was a tremendous task. In the post-Independence scenario, Nehru was able to provide a strong foundation to the political system and clear directions to foreign and domestic policies. Despite the fast changing nature of the international system, Nehruvian perspectives are very relevant even today. This book contains 12 papers, authored by eminent scholars, which critically examine the policies pursued by Nehru in shaping modern India. 184pp.

Said, Edward W.
A 'beginning,' especially as embodied in much modern thought, is its own method, Edward Said argues in this classic treatise on the role of the intellectual and the goal of criticism. Distinguishing between 'origin', which is divine, mythical, and privileged, and 'beginning,' which is secular and humanly produced, Said traces the ramifications and diverse understandings of the concept of beginning through history. A beginning is a first step in the intentional production of meaning and the production of difference from preexisting traditions. It authorizes subsequent texts - it both enables them and limits what is acceptable. Drawing on the insights of Vico, Valery, Nietzsche, Saussure, Levi-Strauss, Husserl, and Foucault, Said recognizes the novel as the major attempt in Western literary culture to give beginnings an authorizing function in experience, art, and knowledge.Scholarship should see itself as a beginning - as a uniting of theory and practice. Said's insistence on a criticism that is humane and socially responsible is what makes "Beginnings" a book about much more than writing: it is about imagination and action as well as the constraints on freedom and invention that come from human intention and the method of its fulfillment. 414pp. N.B.

Jespersen, J.; Bertina, R.M.
Offering a description of current and recently developed laboratory assays in the field of haemostasis and thrombosis, this work is the result of a co-operation between experts from more than 60 institutes in 12 European countries, brought together by the ECAT (European Concerted Action on Thrombosis and Disabilities) under the auspices of the Commission of the European Communities in Brussels. The work is based on two previous editions, which were for internal use only. Each assay was assessed by an expert who functioned in the ECAT as representative of a reference laboratory. An assay committee co-ordinated the activities, and each chapter is written by an assay expert. Most of the chapters give descriptions of the assay recommended for use in the ECAT and briefly mention alternatives. For this reason, a list is included of firms that are commercializing kits and reagents. The book aims to contribute to further harmonization of haemostasis assays and, ultimately, to their standardization. N.B.Slight fading to spine,slightly marked at base of spine.230pp.
