This earliest expression of saiva devotion in Tamil by the poetess from Karaikkal is published with an outstanding translation by Karavelane (Leon Saint-Jean, a lawyer and freedom fighter from Karaikkal, where he inaugurated in 1937 a French Institute of Indianism). It remains a landmark, and the preface (1956), by Jean Filliozat, a valid charter for French Indology. The new edition has been considerably enriched, by a complete glossary/concordance of the poems, a full translation by Vinson...

 Le Gitalamkara. L'ouvrage original de Bharata sur la musique  Alain Daniélou Le Gitalamkara. L'ouvrage original de Bharata sur la musique   $19.49  $14.62  Buy Now 
This a first translation and critical edition of the G?t?lam?k?ra, a reference work and the oldest known treatise on the theory of music and its codification in India, cited by such later treatises as the N?t?ya ??stra. The G?t?lam?k?ra enables us to reconstruct the evolution of music in India through an archaic and singular terminology that identifies r?ga as varn?a, prior to Greek and Muslim influences. The interest of the study is threefold: historical, linguistic and musicological. It is... 
 Textes des Purana sur la théorie musicale - Vol. 1  Alain Daniélou Textes des Purana sur la théorie musicale - Vol. 1   $16.49  $12.37  Buy Now 
The Pur?n?as are later compilations of more ancient texts. They therefore often furnish remarkable historical information, as in the case of these three texts on music derived from the V?yu-Pur?n?a, the M?rkan?d?eya-Pur?n?a and the Vis?n?u- Dharmottara. This critical edition uses a vast corpus for reconstructing the corrupted texts of these Pur?n?as. The musical system described in them closely resembles that of the N?t?ya ??stra and already employs terms such as jati, gamaka, r?ga, ?ruti, etc,... 
 La Haritasamhita - Texte médical sanskrit  Alix Raison La Haritasamhita - Texte médical sanskrit   $32.49  $24.37  Buy Now 
The Haritasamhita is attributed to Harita, one of the disciples of the sage atreya Punarvasu. It is also known by the names of Atrisamhita and atreyasamhita. The text known to us, differs from the one cited in the ancient period by the commentators of the major ayurvedic texts. It has survived in the form of a large number of manuscripts and has been edited several times, proof of the interest that it has generated. This text, known from Gujarat to Bengal, is presented here with a translation...

 Les humus forestiers des Ghâts occidentaux en Inde du Sud. Facteurs climatiques, édaphiques et biologiques intervenant dans le stockage de la matière organique du sol  B. Ferry Les humus forestiers des Ghâts occidentaux en Inde du Sud. Facteurs climatiques, édaphiques et biologiques intervenant dans le stockage de la matière organique du sol   $32.49  $24.37  Buy Now 
The soil organic matter was studied in 23 forests of the Western Ghats, characterized by varied conditions of altitude, pluviometry, length of the dry season, forest cover (evergreen to deciduous) and soil texture (sandy loam to clay). The storage of soil carbon appears mainly driven by the temperature and the soil texture. However, we observed also a complex effect of the length of the dry season. It would limit the storage of carbon when it is very long (more than six months), by shortening...

The saivagamaparibhasamanjari is a Sanskrit anthology of saiva texts compiled in the 16th c. by a famous theologian from Cidambaram (Tamil Nadu). It intends to deal with all the facets of the saivasiddhanta school, but surprisingly, the matter is distributed in ten chapters which are not topic-wise but number-wise; moreover it never contains any indication on the origin of quotations which form the bulk of its text. The publication herein described comprises a critical edition as well as a...

 Des Intouchables aux Dalit : les errements d’un mouvement d’émancipation dans l’Inde contemporaine  Djallal G. Heuzé Des Intouchables aux Dalit : les errements d’un mouvement d’émancipation dans l’Inde contemporaine   $35.49  $26.62  Buy Now 
In India, the term Dalit is claimed by those who were earlier called untouchables. They have created a movement of emancipation that reveals worrying tensions on its margins. The campaign of a journal that, in 1981, took on the title of Dalit Voice, bears testimony to this fact. Agitating against the caste system and for statutory equality, this journal, which is influential among the small elite originating from the lower castes, constitutes a remarkable example of the drift in the discourse...

Properties of ferrallitic soils have been investigated in the Indian Western Ghats on three different parent rocks in the escarpments and on precambrian schist in the backslope. All soils of the escarpment, though experiencing high weathering (ferralitization) due to rainfall above 4000 mm/year are deep, well-drained, rather juvenile (high silt/clay ratios) with substantial nutrient recycling by evergreen forest vegetation. Backslope is characterized by gentler slopes and by a land cover...
