These transformational changes in the military, economic and political dynamics of Asia are accelerating with the passage of time. Historically, changes in the international order and equations of power among national have been almost inevitably accompanied by conflicts and wars.
The challenge ahead of the international community in general and Asian countries in particular would be how to ensure that this is avoided, and competition, so necessary to shaping the future, is managed below the levels of armed conflict. This is crucial for most countries like India so that their comprehensive national development can progress without adverse developments.
In order towork toward such goals, it is necessary to look at security and military-related issues as objectively as possible. This volume, a resource base for the professional and the general reader, is the sixth in the series of the annual publication of the Centre for Air Power Studies under this title, which aims to fill a critical information and knowledge gap in current strategic literature dealing with military strategy, defence politics and trends in military capabilities that impact countries in Asia.
In particular, it covers some of the important areas that affect Asian countries, with a focus on China, India and Pakistan, to provide the requisite regional balance. Contents : 1.

Encompassing perhaps the most diverse, splendid and threatened species of fauna and flora in the world, there is an urgent need to garner much greater support for their conservation by providing information and inculcating interest amongst the laymen, as well as referral material for the specialist.

The labour conditions in the readymade garments industry--a key sector in many Asian economies--are highlighted, with special reference to women stitchers in Bangladesh and women homeworkers in West Bengal. "The book also provides a wide-ranging overview of the processes of agrarian modernization and their impact on rural women.
Peter Custers discusses themes such as the commercialization of production, and feminist interpretations of the spread of high-yielding varieties of seeds in combination with agrochemical inputs in India. "The reader, further, is taken to Japan, where companies have developed management(less)

Easwaran's introduction to the Dhammapada gives an overview of the Buddha's teachings that is reliable, penetrating, and clear - accessible for readers new to Buddhism, but also with fresh insights and practical applications for readers familiar with this text. Chapter introductions place individual verses into the context of the broader Buddhist canon.
Easwaran is a master storyteller, and the introduction includes many stories that make moving, memorable reading, bringing young Siddhartha and his heroic spiritual quest vividly to life.But Easwaran's main qualification for interpreting the Dhammapada, he said, was that he knew from his own experience that these verses could transform our lives.
This faithful rendition brings us closer to the compassionate(less)
