     Continuum Percolation (Cambridge Tracts in Mathematics)
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Author(s): Ronald Meester, Rahul Roy

Many phenomena in physics, chemistry, and biology can be modeled by spatial random processes. One such process is continuum percolation, which is used when the phenomenon being modeled is made up of individual events that overlap e.g., individual raindrops that eventually make the ground evenly wet. This is a systematic, rigorous account of continuum percolation. The authors treat two models, the Boolean model and the random connection model, in detail, and they discuss related continuum models. Meester and Roy explain all important techniques and methods and apply them to obtain results on the existence of phase transitions, equality and continuity of critical densities, compressions, rarefaction, and other aspects of continuum models.

     Sea Power and Indian Security
Publisher: Brasseys Publications
Author(s): Rahul Roy-Chaudhury

With the end of the Cold War and the disintegration of the Soviet Union, interest in countries such as India - and their navies - is growing. Ths interest reflects the increasingly important role played by an emerging power asserting its policies in the South Asian arena. This book fills the gap in many people's knowledge of the India Navy and its strategy. Covering the period from 1947 to the present day, it examines the changes that have occurred in the Indian government's perception of the utility of sea power. From a period of relative neglect immediately after independence, policies have increasingly begun to reflect the importance of the sea to Indian security. Covering economic, military and political considerations, this study investigates indigenous warship construction from the late 1960s, as well as the acquisition of naval vessels from the erstwhile Soviet Union. Adoption of a defensive naval doctrine proved to be the solution to reluctant government funding, and helped pave the way towards expansion and a more active role for the navy in the struggle for control of the Indian Ocean, where India has become a dominant maritime power.

     Bollywood Cinema: Temples of Desire
Publisher: Routledge
Author(s): Vijay Mishra

India is home to Bollywood - the largest film industry in the world. Movie theaters are said to be the "temples of modern India," with Bombay producing nearly 800 films per year that are viewed by roughly 11 million people per day. In Bollywood Cinema, Vijay Mishra argues that Indian film production and reception is shaped by the desire for national community and a pan-Indian popular culture. Seeking to understand Bollywood according to its own narrative and aesthetic principles and in relation to a global film industry, he views Indian cinema through the dual methodologies of postcolonial studies and film theory. Mishra discusses classics such as Mother India (1957) and Devdas (1935) and recent films including Ram Lakhan (1989) and Khalnayak (1993), linking their form and content to broader issues of national identity, epic tradition, popular culture, history, and the implications of diaspora.

     New Dimensions of Politics in India: The United Progressive Alliance in Power (Routledge Advances in South Asian Studies)
Publisher: Routledge
Author(s):

Following India?s general election in May 2009, this book undertakes a critical evaluation of the performance of the United Progressive Alliance (UPA). It presents a thorough analysis of the UPA coalition government, and by providing an understanding of the new innovations in the UPA?s policies, the book goes on to evaluate the effectiveness of these policies against their aims and objectives.

This book suggests that there is an analytical framework for assessing the political consequences of the policies and the UPA?s success, both at the national and state levels, with particular reference to new policies in governance, secularism and security. These three areas constitute important fault lines between the main national political parties in India, and provide an interesting point of departure to explore the new emerging trends, as well as the strong underlying continuities between the UPA administration and its predecessors. The book offers new insights into the structure of Indian politics, and is a useful contribution to studies in South Asian Politics, Governance and Political Parties.

     The Strategic Shape of the World
Publisher: SAGE Publications Pvt. Ltd
Author(s):

This book is a compilation of the proceedings of the MEA-IISS Foreign Policy Dialogue held at New Delhi in December 2007.

The International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) is the world's leading think tank on international security, political risk and military conflict. It provides trusted and independent analysis for professionals and institutions wanting cutting-edge information on global developments and their effect on political and economic affairs. Similarly, the Public Diplomacy division of the Ministry of External Affairs was especially created in April 2006 as it was increasingly felt that in today's world, successful foreign policy practitioners would need to have an open and regular dialogue with civil society, NGOs, academia, think tanks and media.

This dialogue between the IISS and the Public Diplomacy division of the MEA focuses on three subjects: the strategic shape of the world (in terms of foreign policies of different nations), international terrorism and energy security. It emphasizes that in the context of globalization and economic interdependence, the real source of danger lies not in the fact of supremacy of the Westphalian state order, but in issues like terrorism, energy security and environmental and climate change which threaten stability. These are recognized as global threats and the dialogue focuses on ways to deal with them.

     Seeing Stars: Spectacle, Society and Celebrity Culture
Publisher: Sage Publications Pvt. Ltd
Author(s): Pramod K Nayar

Celebrity Culture explores the ways in which celebrities are manufactured , how they establish their hold on the public imagination, and how social responses enable them to be what they are. Celebrity culture is marked by three main responses: adulation, identification, and emulation. The book proposes that these responses are generated as a result of media constructions of celebrities. Therefore, celebrity culture is something that must be studied as a consequence of new forms of media representation and mass culture. The book s aim is to explore this phenomenon, especially from the 1990s. It is intended as a popular introduction to celebrity culture and a new society of spectacle that is visible in India today through a rigorous analyses of a range of media sources.

     Asia Looks Seaward: Power and Maritime Strategy (Praeger Security International)
Publisher: Praeger
Author(s):

Asia is headed toward an uncertain and potentially volatile future in the maritime arena. The two rising Asian powers, China and India, dependent as they are on seaborne commerce for their economic well-being, have clearly set their eyes on the high seas. Yoshihara and Holmes offer a stark warning that many strategists in Beijing and New Delhi appear spellbound by the more militant visions of sea power. Indeed, both powers appear poised to develop the capacity to control the sea lanes through which the bulk of their commerce flows. If they enter the nautical environment with such a martial mindset, Asia could very well fall victim to regional rivalries that give rise to a vicious cycle of competition.

Yoshihara and Holmes provide the first examination of the simultaneous rise of two naval powers and the potential impact that such an oceanic reconfiguration of power in Asia could have on long-term regional stability. Their study analyzes the maritime interests and strategies of the littoral states in Asia as they prepare for the expected reordering of nautical affairs. This long-overdue assessment revisits underlying assumptions that have prevailed among strategy-makers and provides a concrete policy framework for reducing the risk of confrontation in Asian waters.

     India as an Asia Pacific Power (Routledge Security in Asia Pacific Series)
Publisher: Routledge
Author(s): David Brewster

The emergence of India as a regional and potentially global power is forcing us to rethink our mental map of the Asia Pacific. We are only just beginning to discern how India may alter the global economic landscape. How will the rise of India change the strategic landscape of Asia and beyond?

This book provides a comprehensive assessment of India's international relations in the Asia Pacific, a region which has not traditionally been understood to include India. It examines India?s strategic thinking about the Asia Pacific, its relationships with China and the United States, and India's increasingly close security ties with other major countries in the region. It considers the consequences of India?s rise on the Asia Pacific strategic order and asks whether India is likely to join the ranks of the major powers of the Asia Pacific in coming years.

     Bollywood Saga
Publisher: Aurum Press Ltd
Author(s): Dinesh Raheja

The Hindi film industry, commonly dubbed 'Bollywood', was born with the release of a single film, Raja Harishchandra in 1913. By the end of the 20th century, it had grown into a multi-million-pound business, producing more than 800 films a year and entertaining billions of fans all over the world. This colourful book examines in detail the rich history of Bollywood. The story is told decade by decade, from the early silent years via the introduction of sound, music and colour to the golden age of the 1950s, when eternal classics such as Awaara and Mother India were created. What emerges above all is the great diversity of the industry's output: as well as a multitude of sentimental musicals, there are 'curry' westerns, romantic comedies, horror flicks and period dramas. A final chapter considers the influence of Bollywood on Western culture, with 'crossover' works such as Bend It Like Beckham and Bollywood Dreams enjoying mainstream success. The overall picture is that of a thriving industry, building on the strengths of a glorious past and looking towards a glittering future.

     Storming the World Stage: The Story of Lashkar-E-Taiba
Publisher: Hurst & Co.
Author(s): Stephen Tankel

Lashkar-e-Taiba is among the most powerful militants groups in South Asia and increasingly viewed as a global terrorist threat on par with al-Qaeda. Considered Pakistan's most powerful proxy against India, the group gained public prominence after its deadly ten-person suicide assault on Mumbai in November 2008. By the time the last Lashkar terrorist was dead after nearly 60 hours, it appeared the world was facing a new menace. Boasting transnational networks stretching across several continents, there has been serious debate since 9/11 of whether Lashkar is an al-Qaeda affiliate. The deliberate targeting of Westerners and Jews during the Mumbai attacks raised questions about whether Lashkar was moving deeper into al-Qaeda's orbit and perhaps on a trajectory to displace Osama bin Laden's network as the next major global jihadi threat. Lashkar's expansion has serious security implications for India, Pakistan, Europe and the United States and its activities threaten to damage US-Pakistan relations. Despite growing calls for action, Pakistan is yet to take any serious steps toward dismantling Lashkar for fear of drawing it further into the insurgency raging there and because of its continued utility against India. More than a militant outfit, Lashkar also controls a vast infrastructure that delivers necessary social services to the Pakistani populace, making it all the more difficult to dismantle. Storming the World Stage traces the evolution of Lashkar-e-Taiba over more than two decades to illustrate how the group grew so powerful and to assess the threat it poses to India, the West and to Pakistan itself. The first English-language book ever written about Lashkar, it draws on in-depth field research, including interviews with senior Lashkar leaders, rank-and-file members, and officials of the Pakistani security services--some of who have helped nurture the group over the years.

     Bombay Cinema: An Archive of the City
Publisher: Univ Of Minnesota Press
Author(s): Ranjani Mazumdar

Cinema is not only a major industry in India, it is a powerful cultural force. But until now, no one has undertaken a major examination of the ways in which films made in Bombay mediate the urban experience in India. In Bombay Cinema, Ranjani Mazumdar takes a multidisciplinary approach to understanding Bombay cinema as the unofficial archive of the city in India.

In this analysis of the cinematic city, Mazumdar reveals a complex postnationalist world, convulsed by the social crisis of the 1970s and transformed by the experience of globalization in the 1990s. She argues that the upheaval of postcolonial nationalism led to Bombay cinema?s articulation of urban life in entirely new terms. Specifically, the place of the village in the imaginary constitution of anticolonial nationalism gave way to a greater acknowledgment, even centrality, of urban space. Bombay Cinema takes the reader on an inventive journey through a cinematic city of mass crowds, violence, fashion, architectural fantasies, and subcultural identities. Moving through the world of gangsters and vamps, families and drifters, and heroes and villains, Bombay Cinema explores an urban landscape marked by industrial decline, civic crisis, working-class disenchantment, and diverse street life.Combining the anecdotal with the theoretical, the philosophical with the political, and the textual with the historical, Bombay Cinema leads the reader into the heart of the urban labyrinth in India, revising and deepening our understanding of both the city and the cinema.

"A landmark study?carefully researched, well organized and offering refreshingly uncondescending and strikingly insightful discussions of mainstream films?that deserves to be read by anyone interested in India's popular cinema or its contemporary urban life." ?Journal of Asian Studies

"Bombay Cinema is an exciting and important contribution to a field that has, to date, been under researched and under theorized. Lively, provocative and richly suggestive, it will also serve as a surefire incentive to watch those films all over again." ?Screen

"Here, at last, is a book length study on Cinema in India that does not get locked into a dance of hermetic closure between what transpires on screen and a set of stock off screen textual and cultural references, but more importantly, walks the streets where the films are set, looks at shop windows, publicity material, costumes, fashion, architecture, telecommunications and the concrete materiality that surrounds the film object." ?Seminar

"Bombay Cinema is lucid, provocative, stylish and substantial. It is an illuminating scholarly study that spares no effort to bring Bombay cinema out of the academic closet." ?The Book Review India

"Departing from the obsession that Film Studies in India has displayed with the idea of cinema as a national allegory, the book convincingly argues for the need to examine the city's hidden archive as one that cannot be subsumed within the sign of the national." ?Biblio

"Mazumdar has a great capacity to discuss Indian cinema, with a brilliant grasp of its political, historical, and aesthetic developments, but equally she is well attuned to the interests and ruptures in the academic discourse of film and cinema studies."?Film International

"Mazumdar's experience as a filmmaker allowed her to offer significant readings of not just the narratives and character development in the films, but of the cinematography, mise-en-scene, and other technical and performance aspects of production." ?Journal of Popular Culture

"At once about Hindi films, spatial practices, urban modernity and globalization . . . the strength of Bombay Cinema lies in bringing all of them together in a productive conversation.? ?Economic and Political Weekly
