After Pickett

After Pickett

₹600

Thomas Piketty's Capital in the Twenty-First Century is the most widely discussed work of economics in recent history, selling millions of copies in dozens of languages. But are its analyses of inequality and economic growth on target? Where should researchers go from here in exploring the ideas Piketty pushed to the forefront of global conversation? A cast of economists and other social scientists tackle these questions in dialogue with Piketty, in what is sure to be a much-debated book in its own right.After Piketty opens with a discussion by Arthur Goldhammer, the book's translator, of the reasons for Capital's phenomenal success, followed by the published reviews of Nobel laureates Paul Krugman and Robert Solow. The rest of the book is devoted to newly commissioned essays that interrogate Piketty's arguments. Suresh Naidu and other contributors ask whether Piketty said enough about power, slavery, and the complex nature of capital. Laura Tyson and Michael Spence consider the impact of technology on inequality. Heather Boushey, Branko Milanovic, and others consider topics ranging from gender to trends in the global South. Emmanuel Saez lays out an agenda for future research on inequality, while a variety of essayists examine the book's implications for the social sciences more broadly. Piketty replies to these questions in a substantial concluding chapter.An indispensable interdisciplinary work, After Piketty does not shy away from the seemingly intractable problems that made Capital in the Twenty-First Century so compelling for so many.

From the author of the international mega-bestseller The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck comes a counterintuitive guide to the problems of hope. We live in an interesting time. Materially, everything is the best it’s ever been—we are freer, healthier and wealthier than any people in human history. Yet, somehow everything seems to be irreparably and horribly f*cked—the planet is warming, governments are failing, economies are collapsing, and everyone is perpetually offended on Twitter. At this moment in history, when we have access to technology, education and communication our ancestors couldn’t even dream of, so many of us come back to an overriding feeling of hopelessness.What’s going on? If anyone can put a name to our current malaise and help fix it, it’s Mark Manson. In 2016, Manson published The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck, a book that brilliantly gave shape to the ever-present, low-level hum of anxiety that permeates modern living. He showed us that technology had made it too easy to care about the wrong things, that our culture had convinced us that the world owed us something when it didn’t—and worst of all, that our modern and maddening urge to always find happiness only served to make us unhappier. Instead, the “subtle art” of that title turned out to be a bold challenge: to choose your struggle; to narrow and focus and find the pain you want to sustain. The result was a book that became an international phenomenon, selling millions of copies worldwide while becoming the #1 bestseller in 13 different countries.Now, in Everthing Is F*cked, Manson turns his gaze from the inevitable flaws within each individual self to the endless calamities taking place in the world around us. Drawing from the pool of psychological research on these topics, as well as the timeless wisdom of philosophers such as Plato, Nietzsche, and Tom Waits, he dissects religion and politics and the uncomfortable ways they have come to resemble one another. He looks at our relationships with money, entertainment and the internet, a

Hindutva by Vinayak Damodar Savarkar

Hindutva by Vinayak Damodar Savarkar

₹300

'हिंदुत्व' एक ऐसा शब्द है, जो संपूर्ण मानवजाति के लिए आज भी अपूर्व स्फूर्ति तथा चैतन्य का स्रोत बना हुआ है। इस शब्द से संबद्ध विचार, महान् ध्येय, रीति-रिवाज तथा भावनाएँ कितनी विविध तथा श्रेष्ठ हैं। 'हिंदुत्व' कोई सामान्य शब्द नहीं है। यह एक परंपरा है। एक इतिहास है। यह इतिहास केवल धार्मिक अथवा आध्यात्मिक इतिहास नहीं है। अनेक बार 'हिंदुत्व' शब्द को उसी के समान किसी अन्य शब्द के समतुल्य मानकर बड़ी भूल की जाती है। वैसे यह इतिहास मात्र नहीं है, वरन् एक सर्वसंग्रही इतिहास है। 'हिंदू धर्म', यह शब्द 'हिंदुत्व' से ही उपजा उसी का एक रूप है, उसी का एक अंश है। 'हिंदुत्व' शब्द में एक राष्ट्र, हिंदूजाति के अस्तित्व तथा पराक्रम के सम्मिलित होने का बोध होता है। इसीलिए 'हिंदुत्व' शब्द का निश्चित आशय ज्ञात करने के लिए पहले हम लोगों को यह समझना आवश्यक है कि 'हिंदू' किसे कहते हैं। इस शब्द ने लाखों लोगों के मानस को किस प्रकार प्रभावित किया है तथा समाज के उत्तमोत्तम पुरुषों ने, शूर तथा साहसी वीरों ने इसी नाम के लिए अपनी भक्तिपूर्ण निष्ठा क्यों अर्पित की, इसका रहस्य ज्ञात करना भी आवश्यक है। प्रखर राष्ट्रचिंतक एवं ध्येयनिष्ठ क्रांतिधर्मा वीर सावरकर की लेखनी से निःसृत 'हिंदुत्व' को संपूर्णता में परिभाषित करती अत्यंत चिंतनपरक एवं पठनीय पुस्तक।

Chanakya's chant

Chanakya's chant

₹200 ₹450
56% off

The year is 340 BC. A hunted, haunted Brahmin youth vows revenge for the gruesome murder of his beloved father. Cold, calculating, cruel and armed with a complete absence of accepted morals, he becomes the most powerful political strategist in Bharat and succeeds in uniting a ragged country against the invasion of the army of that demigod, Alexander the Great. Pitting the weak edges of both forces against each other, he pulls off a wicked and astonishing victory and succeeds in installing Chandragupta on the throne of the mighty Mauryan empire.History knows him as the brilliant strategist Chanakya. Satisfied—and a little bored—by his success as a kingmaker, through the simple summoning of his gifted mind, he recedes into the shadows to write his Arthashastra, the ‘science of wealth’. But history, which exults in repeating itself, revives Chanakya two and a half millennia later, in the avatar of Gangasagar Mishra, a Brahmin teacher in smalltown India who becomes puppeteer to a host of ambitious individuals—including a certain slumchild who grows up into a beautiful and powerful woman.Modern India happens to be just as riven as ancient Bharat by class hatred, corruption and divisive politics and this landscape is Gangasagar’s feasting ground. Can this wily pandit—who preys on greed, venality and sexual deviance—bring about another miracle of a united India? Will Chanakya’s chant work again? Ashwin Sanghi, the bestselling author of The Rozabal Line, brings you yet another historical spinechiller.
