The Jaina path of purification by Padmanabh S Jaini( Book )

6 editions published between 1979 and 1998 in English and held by 622 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The religious tradition of the Jainas, unique in many respects, presents a fascinating array of doctrinal and social structures that stem from the anti-vedic movements of ancient times. Drawing extensively on primary sources, Professor Jaini provides a comprehensive introduction to the Jaina experience. Beginning with the Life of Mahavira the author elucidates the essentials of Jaina cosmology and philosophy as well as of the "path of purification" through which the soul may escape from its Karmic defilements and attain eternal salvation. This path constitutes the integral element within the broader frame-work of Jaina literature, lay ritual and the socio-historical factors, which enabled Jainism to survive and prosper to the present day. In particular, the author has examined the cardinal doctrine of ahimsa (non-harming), both in its impact upon Jaina religious consciousness and as a standard in applying its sacred principles to the conduct of every day life

The rope of God by James T Siegel( Book )

5 editions published between 1969 and 1978 in English and held by 551 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tracing the evolution in Islam, in the economy, and in the structure of the family, James Siegel's The Rope of God - first published in 1969 - shows how it was that the Acehnese, a Muslim people of Sumatra, mobilized themselves as a society from the time of the colonial war to the emergence of the Indonesian republic. At a time when this Indonesian society is once again in movement - this time against the Indonesian army depredations and economic exploitation - this influential study has gained new relevance."--Jacket

Opposition in a dominant-party system; a study of the Jan Sangh, the Praja Socialist Party, and the Socialist Party in Uttar Pradesh, India by Angela Sutherland Burger( Book )

4 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In countries in which one political party is dominant, attention naturally centers on that party. This book is unusual because it concentrates on what were until recently the largest opposition parties in the largest Indian state. It deals with such questions as: What problems are involved in building an opposition party in a dominant-party system, particularly in a newly independent underdeveloped country? What effects do opposition parties experience when the dominant party is identified with the winning of national independence? What relationship is there between the goals of the dominant party and the activities of opposition parties? In considering these questions, Mrs. Burger offers hypotheses that can be tested in dominant-party systems outside of India. Very little has been written about the Jan Sangh, Praja Socialist, and Socialist parties in Uttar Pradesh, for until recently these were small entities in a system dominated by the Congress Party. In the Indian General Elections of 1967, however, popular support for the Congress Party declined so markedly that the three parties in question were able to form the Uttar Pradesh Government in alliance with several other parties. They are therefore opposition parties no longer. This improvement in their fortunes does not, however, affect the value of this book - and this for two reasons. For one, Mrs. Burger's main concern is with comparative, not area, politics; she has invested much time and effort in identifying factors, developing categories and constructing hypotheses that have broad relevance. The hypotheses that she has tested in Uttar Pradesh can accordingly be tested in other dominant-party systems. Moreover, because the changed political situation in Uttar Pradesh raises questions about the former minority parties and the causes for their recent rise to power, Mrs. Burger offers a close analysis of the socioeconomic political forces utilized in party building and discusses problems of party maintenance as well as providing much background information concerning the state legislators
