"General in its approach, yet penetrating, this book acquaints the reader with the highlights of Buddhist philosophy. It not only treats the ideas of the founder of the religion, but follows the development of his thought through the ages.
It points out how these ideas were used by the psychologists of the Abhidharma, how they issued in the mystical conceptions of Mahayana. But, before all, it treats the more intellectual conceptions of the Madhyamaka and the logic of Buddhist idealism.

Index. "The book is a collection of papers dealing with the ideas of the Bengali thinkers of the 19th century on polity, morality, history, economy and culture.
These Bengali thinkers were highly creative, and their assimilation of western ideas did not prevent them from imprinting the stamp of their own personality on them. The papers in this book highlight their original thought in different areas with a view to showing how every one of them assimilates western ideas in order to hammer out a(less)

In "Information Rules", they reveal that many conventional economic concepts can provide the insight and understanding necessary to succeed in the information age. Shapiro and Varian argue that if managers seriously want to develop effective strategies for competing in the new economy, they must understand the fundamental economics of information technology.
Whether information takes the form of software code or recorded music, is published in a book or magazine, or even posted on a Web site, managers must know how to evaluate the consequences of pricing, protecting, and planning new versions of information products, services, and systems. The first book to distill the economics of information and networks into practical business strategies, "Information Rules" is a guide to the winning moves that can help business leaders -- from writers, lawyers, and finance professionals to executives in the entertainment, publishing, and hardware and software industries -- navigate successfully through the information economy.
About the Author : Carl Shapiro has contributed to Information Rules: A Strategic Guide to the Network Economy as an author. Shapiro is the Transamerica Professor of Business Strategy, Haas School of Business and Department of Economics, UC Berkeley.
