by Penny Reid

USA TODAY BESTSELLER

Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more.   How did the patronage activities of India’s Vijayanagara Empire (c. 1346–1565) influence Hindu sectarian identities? Although the empire has been commonly viewed as a Hindu bulwark against Islamic incursion from the north or as a religiously ecumenical state, Valerie Stoker argues that the Vijayanagara court was selective in its patronage of religious institutions. To understand the dynamic interaction between religious and royal institutions in this period, she focuses on the career of the Hindu intellectual and monastic leader Vyasatirtha. An agent of the state and a powerful religious authority, V...

These issues have propelled Japan into the center of a set of global conversations about the nature of children and how to raise them.

A free ebook version of this title will be available through Luminos, University of California Press’s Open Access publishing program. Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more. China’s relation to Taiwan has been in constant contention since the founding of the People’s Republic of China in October 1949 and the creation of the defeated Kuomintang (KMT) exile regime on the island two months later. The island’s autonomous sovereignty has continually been challenged, initially because of the KMT’s insistence that it continue to represent not just Taiwan but all of China—and later because Taiwan refused to cede sovereignty to the then-dominant power that had arisen on the other side of the Taiwan Strait. One thing that makes Taiwan so politically difficult and yet so intellectually...

by Garrett Field

A free ebook version of this title is available through Luminos, University of California Press’s Open Access publishing program. Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more.   The study of South Asian music falls under the purview of ethnomusicology, whereas that of South Asian literature falls under South Asian studies. As a consequence of this academic separation, scholars rarely take notice of connections between South Asian song and poetry.

Garrett Field describes how songwriters and poets modernized song and poetry in response to colonial and postcolonial formations. The story of this modernization is significant in that it shi...

Tao Te Ching The Way of The Power

by Len Losik Ph.D

Tao Te Ching The Way of the Power is referred to as the Laozi and is one of only several ancient Chinese texts that allows us a small window into the minds of the ancient scholars and how they passed their unwanted knowledge and wisdom on to the few that desired to hear it. Unlike the West, the East's culture is one of forgetting the past every 12 years and look to the future. This cultural behavior is one that keeps the people with hope so that their culture survives through catastrophic losses that occurred down thru history in every facet of their society. The East was a great warring region starting with the Hsiung-nu tribesmen that became the Mongols, constant invasions and ruthless slaughter of the Asiain people over many thousands of years providing the motivation for building and e...
