An exploration of the timeless beauty of Indian design through 200 classic objects.The Indian subcontinent is an amalgamation of peoples, cultures, languages and philosophies. Throughout history Indian culture has been subject to myriad different influences, from the Mughal empire to the British Raj to the now globalized nation in transition. Similar to 'Wa: Essence of Japanese Design', this book will trace continuity through the history of Indian design from antiquity to the present day.The book explores the elements that make Indian design so special, including the varied manufacturing and decorating techniques of the country's incredibly skilled craftsmen, highly specialized object designs that have been refined over centuries, and ongoing responses to nature, technology, and necessity. The objects were chosen for their enduring quality and beauty, and their integral connection to Indian culture.Rather than following a chronological order or concentrating on the (often anonymous) designers, this book separates the objects into abstract categories anchored by Hindi words chosen to illuminate how each object fits into the lives of Indians.

Waiting to be rediscovered in the British Library is an ancient manuscript of the early Church, copied by an anonymous monk. The manuscript is at least 1,450 years old, possibly dating to the first century. And now, The Lost Gospel provides the first ever translation from Syriac into English of this unique document that tells the inside story of Jesus' social, family, and political life. The Lost Gospel takes the reader on an unparalleled historical adventure through a paradigm shifting manuscript. What the authors eventually discover is as astounding as it is surprising: the confirmation of Jesus' marriage to Mary Magdalene; the names of their two children; the towering presence of Mary Magdalene; a previously unknown plot on Jesus' life (thirteen years prior to the crucifixion); an assassination attempt against Mary Magdalene and their children; Jesus' connection to political figures at the highest level of the Roman Empire; and a religious movement that antedates that of Paul-the Church of Mary Magdalene. Part historical detective story, part modern adventure, The Lost Gospel reveals secrets that have been hiding in plain sight for millennia.

ABOUT THE BOOK Revolutionaries: A New History of the Invention of America adds an interesting twist to the format of writing a nonfiction book on the nations founding period. Author Jack Rakove tells a personalized tale from the perspective of Americas founding fathers as private individuals turned public figures during the forefront of the revolutionary revolt against British colonial rule. The book focuses on the period from 1773 to 1792 and highlights many historical household names and lesser-known contributors to Americas invention. MEET THE AUTHOR Joe Taglieri is a freelance journalist and musician (drum set and Latin percussion instruments) in Los Angeles. He has written on a range of subjects for a variety of publications since the 1990s. Taglieri's forte is writing about governmental and economic issues, and he has a keen interest in sports and the arts, most notably music, television and film. He holds a degree in print journalism from the University of Southern California and has studied, taught and performed via the drum set for nearly 25 years and has done the same with Latin percussion instruments such as conga and bongo drums, cajon and timbales for more than 15 years. The book is an extremely detailed, objective look at the personal evolution that men such as Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Franklin and many others went through as they became historical figures. Revolutionaries provides a compelling look at how Washington became a lauded military strategist, Franklin and Jefferson became skilled diplomats, Hamilton and Madison became shrewd governmental architects. The book also details the advent of the American legal system. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK John Adams seemed destined for a life as a relatively small-time Massachusetts attorney. However, the aftermath of the 1773 Boston Tea Party and a spate of political crises within the colonies in the 1760s transitioned Adams from private to public life. As Rakove states, Few...lives were more enlarged than that of John Adams, the deacons son who would soon be received at the courts of Versailles and St. James, the plain-speaking advocate who rarely allowed discretion to get the better part of polemical valor. John Dickinson was a Pennsylvania lawyer from a wealthy family who was educated in England. He wrote an anonymous letter which contributed a great deal to shape the colonists arguments against Parliaments taxes via the Stamp Act and Townshend duties. Rakove notes, When the crisis of empire broke in 1774, Dickinson supported the radical measures that the Continental Congress was driven to adopt, while longing for reconciliation with the mother country he still loved. Dickinson wrote home while he was a student in London. His letters reveal a marked culture gap between native Britons and the kings American subjects. Ravkove expounds upon his letters stating, In perhaps his most interesting letter, Dickinson reflected on the damage that youthful exposure to slavery had inflicted on his colonial acquaintances. The passions of pride, selfishness, peevishness, violence, anger, meanness, revenge and cruelty that young Americans learned from owning and commanding slaves unfitted them to deal with their social equals, much less their superiors, in England, where the first lesson a person learns is he is nothing.
