Of Women Outcastes Peasants, and Rebels: A Selection of Bengali Short Stories

by Kalpana Bardhan

Until now the large body of socially focused Bengali literature has remained little known to Western readers. This collection includes some of the finest examples of Bengali short stories--stories that reflect the turmoil of a changing society traditionally characterized by rigid hierarchical structures of privilege and class differentiation. Written over a span of roughly ninety years from the early 1890s to the late 1970s, the twenty stories in this collection represent the work of five authors. Their characters, drawn from widely varying social groups, often find themselves caught up in tumultuous political and social upheaval. The reader encounters Rabindranath Thakur's extraordinarily spirited and bold heroines; Manik Bandyopadhyay's peasants, laborers, fisher folk, and outcastes; and Tarashankar Bandyopadhyay's rural underclass of snake-charmers, corpse-handlers, stick-wielders, potters, witches, and Vaishnava minstrels. Mahasweta Devi gives voice to the semi-landless tribals and untouchables effectively denied the rights guaranteed them by the Constitution; Hasan Azizul Huq depicts the plight of the impoverished of Bangladesh.

Offense, Defense, and War

by Michael E. Brown Owen R. Coté Sean M. Lynn-Jones Steven E. Miller

Offense-defense theory argues that the relative ease of offense and defense varies in international politics. When the offense has the advantage, military conquest becomes easier and war is more likely; the opposite is true when the defense has the advantage. The balance between offense and defense depends on geography, technology, and other factors. This theory, and the body of related theories, has generated much debate and research over the past twenty-five years. This book presents a comprehensive overview of offense-defense theory. It includes contending views on the theory and some of the most recent attempts to refine and test it.

Office-based Cosmetic Procedures And Techniques

by Sorin Eremia

This is a multi-authored textbook that is simple, practical, and up-to-date and supported by instructional videos for cosmetic procedures that can be performed in an office setting.

It also covers suture suspension lifts, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion. There are supporting chapters on various local, topical, nerve-blocking, and sedation anesthetic techniques that are typically used in an office setting. The book's format and contents are a bold departure from many textbooks. In addition to chapters discussing the theory behind the products and chapters reviewing categories of products or devices that provide the reader with an overview and some comparative discussion, there are short sections for each individual popular branded type of product. The book is useful for both experienced practitioners interested in the latest trends around the world and those who are starting out or are simply interested in adding new procedures to a practice that already includes certain cosmetic procedures.

Offspring: Human Fertility Behavior in Demographic Perspective brings together leading researchers from a wide variety of disciplines to review the state of research in this emerging field and to identify promising research directions for the future.
