This dissertation describes the Brahminical funerary rites through translations of compendiums on ritual. It also deals with the techniques and methods of description used by Brahminical ritual experts. The presentation thus represents a complete model of the funerary rites including many variations and potentialities. Examples are cited to show how both anthropological and non-anthropological observations of funerary rites in India can be explained on the basis of this model. Through the knowledge of the complexity and dynamics of ritual processes one can discern an inner meaning of Brahminical funerary rites.

This edition of a Sanskrit text is a hagiography of the Indian philosopher akara. With this translation, we have, for the first time, a German version of the akara legend. When comparing these episodes with other hagiographies (Buddha, for example), common traits can be seen. The sources of some motifs stem from the epic and other Sanskrit literature and from other traditions of India. 
154 Traditionelle Medizin auf den Philippinen : Angstbewältigung und Kognition bei Krankheiten [Traditional medicine on the Philippines : to overcome Angst and to recognize illness] / Norbert Kohnen. - 1992. 396 p. ISBN 3-515-05402-2

The Appendix includes tables on the ranking of illnesses with different characteristics (pp. 317-338), a correlation matrix of the characteristics (pp. 339-341), ranking correlations between the characteristics of illness (pp. 341-349) and a questionnaire regarding Angst (p. 350). 
155 Das Puskara-Mahatmya : ein religionswissenschaftlicher Beitrag zum Wallfahrtsbegriff in Indien ; Erörterung, Text, Übersetzung [The Puskara-Mahatmya : a religio-historical contribution to the concept of pilgrimage in India ; discussion, text, translation] / von [by] Aditya Malik. - 1993. XIII, 408 p. 16 Abb. [photographs], 2 Ktn. [maps]. ISBN 3-515-06358-7 
Based on a combination of the results of fieldwork and an examination of the Puskara-Mahatmya, this is the first major religio-historical study to be published on the famous pilgrimage centre of Puskara in Rajasthan. The volume is divided into three parts. In Part I, the author mainly (a) examines the historical (written and oral), social, mythological and topographical "context" of the text and (b) analyses the structure of the text in terms of the "ideology" that underlies and generates it. The narrative and ideological framework of the text are provided by the notions of the yajña and its concrete performance in Puskara by Brahma, the pilgrim town's chief deity. Many of Puskara's varied social and religious traditions as well as topography have been interpreted and included within this framework, creating a homology between ritual and pilgrimage. An examination of how this connection has been made, in particular leads to a fresh understanding of the relationship between the Vedic institution of the yajña and the later institution of the tirthayatra. Part II contains the first critical edition of the Puskara-Mahatmya based on a comparison of four hand-written and one printed manuscript. Part III consists of an annotated German translation of the edited text. The appendix contains information derived from pamphlets sold to pilgrims, and the summary of an oral narrative told by a Gujar priest about Brahma's sacrifice in Puskara.

157 The Tamil Tigers : armed struggle for identity / by Dagmar Hellmann-Rajanayagam. - 1994. X, 164 p. ISBN 3-515-06530-X 
List of abbreviations in alphabetical order pp. [152]-153, bibliography pp. 154 to 161 : Unpublished Sources, Government Documents, Private Papers, etc. p. [154], monographs pp. [154]-157, articles in journals, unpublished papers etc. pp. 157-158, newspapers, pamphlets, etc. pp. 158-160, interviews pp. 160-161, index pp. [162]-164. 
For nearly 20 years, the 'Tamil Tigers' in North Sri Lanka have managed not only to hold their own in the militant ethnic conflict against the Sinhalese, but also to become the most powerful and dominant militant group in Jaffna. They enjoy the support of the majority of the high-caste population in spite of their leaders and members originating from a comparatively low caste and challenging the dominant status of the former. The present study explores the reasons for this success, locating it in the successful adoption and adaptation of age-old Tamil traditions combined with modern ideas of social and economic equality. The tigers fight on two fronts : against an ethnic adversary, the Sinhalese, and against a social one, the Vellalars of Jaffna. The authoress has, for the first time, collected and evaluated sources written both in Tamil and in English by the militant groups themselves : pamphlets, journals, newspapers, booklets; and she conducted in-depth interviews with leading members of these groups. 
158 Bangladesh : Dritte Heidelberger Südasiengespräche [Bangladesh : Third Heidelberg Talks on South Asia] / Herausgegeben von [edited by] Dieter Conrad und [and] Wolfgang-Peter Zingel. - 1994. XI, 242 p. ISBN 3-515-06549-0 
After having cast off military rule, Bangladesh experienced a remarkable political regeneration. Nonetheless, it has remained a test case for the instrument of "development aid". The donors' dissatisfaction has led to a discussion as to whether aid commitments should be put aside for the time being. The Third Heidelberg Talks on South Asia were devoted to this topic. Scholars, journalists, representatives of the Foreign Office, of industry, political foundations and cultural institutions had met for an exchange of views on the basis of their knowledge of the country and their special fields of interest. Actual exchange of information and the discussion of long-term perspectives, especially with regard to the effects of development aid on the one hand, as well as the reports on poverty, over-population and flood catastrophes by the media on the other, were the main topics of these talks.

Tamil is the major representative of the Dravidian languages having a continuous literary tradition of more than two thousand years. Its history may be divided into three phases, which do not only show distinct literary, but also linguistic differences: Old Tamil (100 B. C. to 700 A. D.), Middle Tamil (700 to 1600 A. D.) and Modern Tamil (1600 A. D. up to the present). An historical grammar of Tamil describing these three language forms is still to be written. The present work is a first attempt at a comprehensive description of the grammatical structure of Old Tamil not only comprising its morphology but also its syntax. 
160 Acculturation and domination in traditional Asian medical systems / edited by Dorothea Sich and Waltraud Gottschalk. - 1994. VII, 107 p. ISBN 3-515-06556-3 
Background literature : Books p. 100, articles about culture-bound syndromes p. 101, index pp. 103-107. 
In developing and modernizing health care systems in Asia, western constructs of health and disease are always confronted with traditional beliefs and practices. In an attempt to dominate over indigenous practices, modern health care leads to problems of acculturation among the people. This reader addresses this theme and gives insights into the different processes of domination and acculturation in South Asia (Nepal, Ladakh) and Southeast Asia (Indonesia, Philippines, Fiji, Samoa and Tonga). Based on extensive field research, the authors analyse the process of modernization in health care, especially in regions where little research had been undertaken so far.

162 Materials for an edition and study of the Pinda- and Oha-Nijjuttis of the Svetâmbara Jain tradition. Volume II : Text and glossary. / Willem B. Bollée. - 1994. XIV, 418 p. ISBN 3-515-06425-7 
Nijjuttis are metrical memory-aids in Prakrit for the monastic teacher of the ancient (8th cent. B.C.) and still living Indian religion of the Jains. They contain the topics to be treated in class and are, therefore, of considerable interest for the intellectual history of India and the development of middle Indo-Aryan languages. Yet, in this field little has been done since Leumann's epoch-making beginnings in the late 19th century. In 1974, Mette edited, translated and commented upon one third of the Oha-Nijjuttis, i.e. that part dealing with the monks' daily almsround. After the list of quarter stanzas published in 1991, this second volume offers the full text of both Nijjuttis and a complete glossary, for which only attested Sanskrit and Pli words are given as parallels. References to Turner's Comparative Dictionary of Indo-Aryan Languages and Burrow/ Emeneau's Dravidian Etymological Dictionary as well as grammatical and other secondary literature have been added. In an appendix, the lemmata of Shriyan's valuable list of Desi words from Puspadanta's Mahapura appear rearranged in full alphabetical order for quick reference to her book.

Historiography is a relatively young discipline in Indonesia. It developed in the years after the attainment of independence and it was often affected by the precarious political situation of the country. In the 1960s, Indonesian historians who had studied abroad came home and established their discipline on a new foundation. Modern historiography in Indonesia arose due to Western influence and replaced earlier indigenous forms of historiography which survived as legends and literature. The era of "guided democracy" (1960-1965) was also not very encouraging as far as critical historiography was concerned. Historical works published in the first years of the "New Order" mainly dealt with the political events of that time, particularly with the coup of 1965 and its suppression. Beginning in the 1970s and continuing throughout the 1980s, Indonesian historiography experienced an unprecedented boom. Of course, critical historiography was mostly confined to academic dissertations. Moreover, research work was usually restricted to ancient history or the period of the freedom struggle. Another category of historical writings are the felicitation volumes celebrating the anniversaries of regencies or cities. These writings in a way reflect earlier traditions of genealogical writings on the families of regents. But, in spite of the prevalence of this kind of historical writings, there are, nevertheless, a group of serious scholars in history who do not participate in this type of work and mostly concentrate on regional social history. But whereas social history has made great strides in Indonesia, no attempt has been made to undertake similar research in the field of economic history. This is due to the fact that Indonesia remains isolated from the mainstream of historical research abroad.

This thesis analyzes the Sikh conflict in the northern Indian state of Punjab. On the basis of a survey of theories of ethnicity and nation-building, this specific case of ethnic strife is first related to a general model of communal conflict research. Then, the historical background of the conflict is sketched without, however, attempting to portray it as an historical necessity. Instead, a picture is painted of an ethnic community which found itself in an ethno-political straitjacket during a period of civil war. The study is divided into three parts. After a theoretical survey of ethnic conflicts in modern national states, the genesis, dynamics and escalation of the Sikh problem are analyzed. Finally, an insight is provided into the anarchical, de facto "Khalistan" which characterized the political situation in various parts of Punjab before the recent military solution put a (temporary?) end to the Sikh extremists' separatist struggle. The thesis deals with the social, ideological and psychological consequences to Sikh terrorism and largely draws on interviews and observations made during field studies in the Punjab as well as on Sikh pamphlets. An insight is provided into the everyday life of a Sikh village close to the Pakistani border which was dramatically affected by the civil war situation. In their struggle for an independent Khalistan, Sikh extremists in the Punjab have attempted to make use of the archetypal Sikh image in order to mobilize militant support. In analysing the Sikh conflict, it is therefore important to reconstruct both the traditional and modern images of Sikh identity together with their ethnic characteristics. In order to elaborate this psycho-physical model, a psychogram of the Sikh community has been developed which emphasizes the importance of militancy, martyrdom, and historical analogy. The elements of this ideal model are then examined within the context of both traditional thought and contemporary life.

This book seeks to present the cult of a popular goddess in Indian folk religion from a variety of  angles:  festivals, rituals, pilgrims, temples, stories and legends of a famous pilgrimage centre in Maharashtra are portrayed against the backdrop of an historical development. The reader is taken from a consideration of the factors leading to the crystallization of a cult at a particular locality (often at the intersection of ancient trade-routes or "microlith" tracks) way back in the Neolithic period to the present day problems of managing an economically successful temple complex, said to be second in India only to that of Tirupati. The research work sheds new light on the all-Indian phenomenon of the buffalo-slaying goddess Durga, the relationship between goddess and king (the epical Rama and the historical Sivaji serve as examples) and the interaction of the "Five components of Hinduism" as postulated by Sontheimer. Sources include a Sanskrit Mahatmya, a monograph on the cult in Marathi (the so-called bakhars) and information obtained from fieldwork.

Although the situation of the Indian Muslims represents one of the most complex social issues in present-day India, research in modern literature has largely failed to take notice of "Muslims in India today", be it as a literary theme or with regard to the producers of literature. This theses examines ten Hindi novels written by contemporary Muslim Hindi writers, viz. Nafis Afridi, Badiuzzaman, Abdul Bismillah, Manzur Ehtesham, Rahi Masum Raza, and Shani. Focusing on the theme of identity, it is concerned with the question of how these writers depict the Indian Muslim's historical and social destiny in their novels. The author separately deals with the 'outer world' describing various aspects that have posed a threat to Muslim identity in India, and the 'inner world', focusing on the changes the Muslim family is undergoing. Prominence is given to the aesthetic treatment of the identity theme, i.e. the use of specific symbols, narrative techniques and language.

The book presents an ethnographic study of the Jenu Kurumba, a tribe of gatherer-hunters and forest traders in the Nilgiri-area in South India. The study is based on two and a half years of fieldwork, conducted in a community of approximately three hundred adult persons. The study is concerned with the construction of the interpersonal social life, i.e. of the sociality of the Jenu Kurumba. It describes the structures of kinship relationships the Jenu Kurumba construct and it works out the moral concepts that the Jenu Kurumba employ in these processes. As often as possible the study draws on the voices of the Jenu Kurumba as they articulate these moral concepts in songs, narratives, and in the discourse of fieldwork itself.

This study demonstrates British "blue water strategy" at its zenith in the course of the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars. An elaborate shipbuilding pro-gramme was set up by the Admiralty in London, along with some imperfect kind of forest management by the East India Company in Bombay. The shipbuilding scheme was to a large degree realised. The forest management failed completely, though it marked the very beginning of forest policy in India under European guidance.

This study seeks to illuminate various ethnohistorical aspects of politico-ritual life in one specific unit of social and political interaction, the 'little kingdom'. In particular, the data, assembled by the author during two years of fieldwork and archival research in India, refer to various little kingdoms in the remote and mountainous hinterland of South Orissa. These kingdoms according to the author constituted a distinctive sub-type of the little kingdom which he calls 'jungle kingdom'. The book begins with a discussion of some major theories of kingship and the state in India, arguing that in these theories and models the unit of little kingdom often has been either ignored or misrepresented. It goes on to look at the history of Orissa's little kingdoms vis-à-vis the 'great kingdom' of the Gajapatis, before it discusses the family chronicle of the kingdom of Jeypore in order to reach some insights concerning its foundation and consolidation. In later chapters it investigates various aspects of the politico-ritual life in the jungle kingdoms in question, such as the royal patronage of tribal goddesses or the celebration of dasara-festivities.

This study focuses on the interethnic relationsship between a minority group of artisans (musicians and blacksmiths) and the larger society in Hunza, Northern Areas of Pakistan. These artisans are considered to be the lowest social stratum, they are excluded from central areas of the dominant society. At the same time they perform essential services in culturally central spheres. This ambiguity is discussed mainly from the perspective of the Dom. In order to examine the identity construction of the Dom and its transformation in the course of time the author discusses concepts of history as emphasized by the Dom in their historical narratives. The spatial dimension of the identity construction is analyzed through the incorporation of the Dom in the agriultural system, through topographic constructions of locales and sites within their own village and through relationships with neighbouring villages. Finally, the contexts in which the Dom act as artisans are discussed, arguing that as musicians and blacksmiths the Dom both hold and mediate power in addition to countering the power relation in the larger society.

This book deals with Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi´s economic ideas and the thinking which he developed during his lifetime. Apart from the goal of India´s indepence (swaraj), one of the most important aims Ghandi tried to achieve were the spiritual growth of the individual, the search for the truth, and the development of a non-violent society. These economic and social changes towards which Gandhi strived form the basis of the "constructive programme". Gandhi´s effort to allow India greater economic indepence took a much more concrete form. Domestic production was to be stimulated by means of the swadeshi idea. Above all, the production of khadi and hand spinning soon became for him the embodiment of the struggle for indepence. The spinning wheel became the symbol of home textile productionas well as of political and economic indepence in general.

Vol. 3 contains also an Index rerum and Additions and Corrections. Commentaries often present not only historical facts of material culture (clothing, foodstuffs, diseases and medicines) but give also an insight into habits, ideas and social life, often illustrated by similes and stories.
