An enormously satisfying, exciting and enriching book, Vikram Chandra's novel draws the reader deep into the lives of detective Sartaj Singh and Ganesh Gaitonde, the most wanted gangster in India. Sartaj, the only Sikh inspector in the whole of Mumbai, is used to being identified by his turban, beard and the sharp cut of his trousers. But 'the silky Sikh' is now past forty, his marriage is over and his career prospects are on the slide. When Sartaj gets an anonymous tip off as to the secret hideout of the legendary boss of the G-company, he's determined that he'll be the one to collect the prize. This is a sprawling, epic novel of friendships and betrayals, of terrible violence, of an astonishing modern city and its underworld. Drawing on the best of Victorian fiction, mystery novels, Bollywood movies and Vikram Chandra's years of first hand research on the streets of Mumbai, this novel reads like a potboiling page-turner but resonates with the intelligence and emotional depth of the best of literature.

Nature conservation planning tends to be driven by models based on Western norms and science, but these may not represent the cultural, philosophical and religious contexts of much of Asia. This book provides a new perspective on the topic of sacred natural sites and cultural heritage by linking Asian cultures, religions and worldviews with contemporary conservation practices and approaches. The chapters focus on the modern significance of sacred natural sites in Asian protected areas with reference, where appropriate, to an Asian philosophy of protected areas. Drawn from over 20 different countries, the book covers examples of sacred natural sites from all of IUCN’s protected area categories and governance types. The authors demonstrate the challenges faced to maintain culture and support spiritual and religious governance and management structures in the face of strong modernisation across Asia. The book shows how sacred natural sites contribute to defining new, more sustainable and more equitable forms of protected areas and conservation that reflect the worldviews and beliefs of their respective cultures and religions. The book contributes to a paradigm-shift in conservation and protected areas as it advocates for greater recognition of culture and spirituality through the adoption of biocultural conservation approaches.

The reader takes a death-defying journey with a woman whose life is torn apart by two wars, assassinations, and loss of home, family, country, and identity. She is welcomed to safety in another land, but at a high price--years of torturous sexual abuse and suicidal depression, and loss of faith in God and in her adopted home. Just as she gives up, a miraculous cure intervenes--she recovers her identity, the truth of her origins. Transformed, she lives as an enlightened being, but without a home. This unprecedented pilgrimage--a search for healing and identity--recounted in this book can be considered a search for truth. Why? Because knowing one's True Self is the ultimate healer. The Buddha stated this principle as dhamma, a law of nature. Living in truth is living with full awareness of the miracle of life--all life. This is it. Mira's journey out of the madness of destruction and serious mental illness demonstrates how creativity, Yoga, meditation devoted to self-inquiry lead to self-knowledge, strengthen intuition, bring one to eternal essence or universal intelligence. Specifically, combined with breathwork, intentional meditation can provide self-healing, manifestation, pain elimination, and guide to self-realization.

Country music in the Carolinas and the southern Appalachian Mountains owes a tremendous debt to freedom-loving Scotch-Irish pioneers who settled the southern backcountry during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. These hardy Protestant settlers brought with them from Lowland Scotland, Northern England and the Ulster Province of Ireland music that created the essential framework for "old-time string band music." From the cabins of the Blue Ridge and Great Smoky Mountains to the textile mills and urban centers of the Carolina foothills, this colorful, passionate, heartfelt music transformed the culture of America and the world and laid the foundation for western swing, bluegrass, rockabilly and modern country music. Author Michael Scoggins takes a trip to the roots of country music in the Carolinas.

A terror born of Jack the Ripper The details of the crime scene are no coincidence. The body—a promising starlet—has been battered, bloodied and then discarded between two of Manhattan's oldest graveyards. One look and Detective Jude Crosby recognizes the tableau: a re-creation of Jack the Ripper's gruesome work. But he also sees something beyond the actions of a mere copycat. Something more dangerous…and unexplainable. As the city seethes with suspicion, Jude calls on Whitney Tremont, a member of the country's preeminent paranormal investigating team, to put the speculation to rest. Yet when Whitney and Jude delve deeper, what they discover is more shocking than either could have predicted, and twice as sinister…

Armenia is a country of unforgettable landscapes: precipices, stony valleys, lakes set around rocks, and countryside covered in wild flowers; it is a land framed by mountains covered in snow and dotted with deep caverns. But the true essence and soul of Armenia are the thousand year-old monasteries, isolated in the depths of valleys and apparently empty and deserted, and the more than 40,000 churches dedicated to the most ancient Christian cult in the world. All this (and much more) is documented through Graziella Vigos 200 extraordinary and original photographs. It is a collection of images portraying sacred ceremonies, private rites, interiors of great allure and atmosphere, and breath-taking landscapes.
