Index. "This book refutes the rising general perception that the gender gap in India is decreasing.
The argument is strengthened by calculating the gender gap index at two time periods and providing quantitative information along with information pertaining to numerous case studies. Selecting relevant welfare indicators and focusing on the neglected dimensions of gender equity, Bearing the Brunt : Impact of Rural Distress on Women discusses the gendered impact of rural economic distress with respect to employment, agricultural production, natural resource management and food security.
It shows that women are bearing the brunt of the increase in rural economic distress at the turn of the century, with spillover effects on their physical and social(less)

"Sri Lanka has been struggling to become an industrial nation over the last half century. State capital, domestic private capital and foreign capital have played different roles individually, each in their own way.
There was no collectivity among them for achieving the common national objective. In countries, which were successful in achieving their national objectives, the above tripod seems to have performed as an alliance in achieving the common goal.
Sri Lanka has every potential for industrial development. What it requires is the collective action of the above factors.
The non-economic elements become hostile to private(less)

Index. "Contemporary Islamic response to the West is a valuable book written by Dr.
Abdul Majid Khan. He has very painstakingly, and with competence, investigated the problem a tricky one, indeed and evaluated the contributions of many leading Muslim thinkers to it.
He begins, naturally enough, with Sir Syed Ahmad Khan and Iqbal and goes on through Maulana Maudoodi, Syed Qutb and Shariati to Dr. Kalim Siddiqui.
The views of all these thinkers are worth pondering because of the complexity of the problems involved in their political and ideological ramifications. If we believe in the perennial wisdom and practicality of the Islamic world-view and tenets of faith we should apply ourselves with firmness of conviction and lucidity of logic to see how best we can come to terms with the(less)

This requires the incorporation of environmental dimensions into the process of development. It is important to make choices and decisions that will eventually promote sound development by understanding the environment functions.
A increasing number of developing countries are accepting the principle of environmental screening of development projects at the planning stage and hence are looking for(less)

The approaches suggested in the book are practical and capable of being adopted in any situation. Many of these children have tremendous intellectual potential, which could be developed to the advantage of the nation, if early and timely interventions are available.
Moreover, the teachers have to be sensitized to the problem. They have to adopt a positive attitude and use effective strategies to cope with problems faced by learning disabled children.
This book is a guide, both for teachers and parents. Parents interact with these children more than teachers do.
Therefore, if parents can be sensitized, more than half of the battle will be won. Learning disabilities constitute a major problem and coping with(less)

"With its roots (perhaps) in the prehistoric times, Tantra is a unique, highly complex spiritual tradition of India. Which is hard to define and still harder to be grasped by the non-initiated--largely because of its occult and mysteriously ritualistic elements, often accompanied by equally mysterious mantras, yantras, kriyas and even sexual practices.
As a religious philosophy, this esoteric cult of Sakti: the female principle, seeks to discover the source of cosmic power within the human body through intensely specialized yogic activity. And, like yoga, it transcends religious boundaries.
Introducing this non-Vedic, esoteric cult in an altogether fresh perspective, the book looks(less)
