This research is a deliberate attempt to examine the editorial treatment of the 2008 Mumbai Attacks in the news papers - DAWN and Times of India - of both India and Pakistan in between November 26, 2008 and November 26, 2009. The main interest lies in the media's role in shaping foreign as well as public policy discourse through its framing. For that matter, editorial treatment of both the papers is thoroughly examined to understand that How they interpret the unfolding of the Mumbai massacre for their readers by pointing fingers on who or what forces? And How they interpret salience of the story and eventually frame and narrate the discourse in their editorials of defense and foreign policy decision making debate in the changing nature of Indo-Pak relations proceeding the one year of [26/11] Mumbai attacks.
This book explores urban malnutrition in India with reference to Mumbai. With urbanization is noticed an underlying shift in demography of poverty and malnutrition to towns and cities, which deserves a holistic analysis. Accordingly, the book chooses to look at the status and determinants of nutrition insecurity in urban areas. The hypothesis is that females, due to continued presence of gender roles and migrants due to assimilation constraints in new environment are among the most vulnerable groups in urban areas. The book reviews literature and previous findings to develop a conceptual framework. Preliminary investigation is done separately for urban areas and large cities of India and a detailed statistical analysis is done for Mumbai. An overview at urban areas and large cities give general understanding of the issue and is useful to model the relationships during the analysis for Mumbai. The results to considerable extent substantiate the hypothesis. Females and rural and newer migrants are actually among the most vulnerable to urban malnutrition. The findings imply critical role of public intervention to deal with the issue along with of multidimensional research approach.

This book looks at slums and social exclusion in the four major megacities of India and Brazil, and analyzes the interrelationships between urban policies and housing and environmental issues. In Delhi, Mumbai, Rio de Janeiro and S¿Paulo, the challenges they pose have spurred public actors into action through housing, rehabilitation and conservation programs, not to mention civil society and the inhabitants themselves. On the other hand, one must wonder whether these challenges were partly created by the deficiencies of these very public actors and civil society, be it their lack of intervention (as advocates of government intervention would argue), or the flaws and inadequacies of their actions (as supporters of the free market would suggest). Are policies alleviating or aggravating social exclusion? This book explores these questions and more.

This is the first account of Dante's reception in English to address full chronological span of that process. Individual authors and periods have been studied before, but Dante's British Public takes a wider and longer view, using a selection of vivid and detailed case studies to record and place in context some of the wider conversations about and appropriations of Dante that developed in Britain across more than six centuries, as access to his work extended and diversified. Much of the evidence is based on previously unpublished material in (for example) letters, journals, annotations and inventories and is drawn from archives in the UK and across the world, from Milan to Mumbai and from Berlin to Cape Town. Throughout, the role of Anglo-Italian cultural contacts and intermediaries in shaping the public understanding of Dante in Britain is given prominence - from clerics and merchants around Chaucer's time, through itinerant scholars, collectors and tourists in the early modern period, to the exiles and expatriates of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The final chapter brings the story up to the present, showing how the poet's work has been seen (from the fourteenth century onwards) as accessible to 'the many', and demonstrating some of the means by which Dante has reached a yet wider British public over the past century, particularly through translation, illustration, and various forms of performance.
