Banerjee,Sumanta
Taking its title from Karl Marx's description of religion as 'the general theory of this world...[and] its logic in a popular form', this volume of essays explores the hidden logic behind the popular construction of certain myths, beliefs about godlings and spirits, and cross-religious cults, viewing them as popular inventions attempting to make sense of human existence in the face of an overwhelming and often hostile environment. These religious manifestations of popular logic are fluid, ever-changing, and always innovative. They represent an alternative stream running parallel to, and often challenging, the more strictly structured beliefs and practices of the Indian religious establishments, whether Hindu, Islamic or Christian. The essays in this book are an attempt to rediscover some of the important aspects of this multi-faceted phenomenon of popular religion in the context of nineteenth-century Bengal, including tracing the impact of urbanisation, colonialism, and nationalism. 233pp.Tail of spine dented ,slight marking to boards,corners bumped.

Martin, F. Lester
This book is unique as it presents a concise history of Great Britain as an island kingdom from the reigns of William I in 1066 to that of Queen Elizabeth II in the present century. The preface contains an overview of the hereditary composition of the monarchy, the coronation portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, and a listing of the monarchs from 1066 to the present. The introduction contains, a brief history of the four countries - England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales - and how they came to be united as the Kingdom of Great Britain. The monarchy is divided into ten houses, or dynasties. A two-fold page layout describes each dynasty from the Normans to the Windsors. Each layout contains: a listing of individual monarchs and dates of reigns; depiction of coins with monarch images; listing of historical events occurring in each reign with marriage information; and two-colour sketches with narrative description of architectural buildings of the period. Thus, there is a 1000 year history of the evolution of architecture from defensive to domestic usage. Signed by author on title page. Head and tail of spine and D/J spine slightly bumped.
