Edited By Jain,S.M.;Brar,D.S. And Ahloowalia,B.S.
The basic purpose of this book is to describe the relative value of each method of improving various agricultural crops by using parasexual techniques. While no book can be a complete source of all the information on a subject, a range of topics were selected to highlight the recent developments in mutagenesis (conventional approach and molecular biology) and in vitro induced variation in plant breeding. We have deliberately kept short the title of this book, simply emphasizing somaclonal variation and induced mutation. This book is divided into three sections. Section 1 contains 13 chapters mainly on somaclonal variation (SCV), covering SCV in crop improvement, SCV in ornamentals, cereals and forage grasses, banana, and forest trees, cytogenetic basis of SCV, in vitro selection, gametoclonal variation, protoclonal variation, and solanaceous medicinal plants. Section 2 deals with induced mutation, and is covered in 10 chapters mainly on mutagenesis in sugarcane, fruit trees, apomixsis, ornamental plants, disease resistance, cereals and legumes, and vegetatively propagated plants. 615pp.N.B.Small label mark at base of d/j spine.

Gopa Kumar, G.
Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru - the First Prime Minister of Independent India - was the embodiment of spirit and ideals of democracy, socialism, secularism, nationalism, equality and social justice. Estimating the contemporary significance and historical relevance of Nehru will always remain a challenging task for the students of social sciences. Nehru continues to remain a crucial link between the evolution of India's contemporary nationalism and the transition towards a middle-range power among the countries of the modern world. Along with other great stalwarts of freedom movement, Nehru was successful and practical in envisioning a modern India. Given the complex social, cultural, political and historical background of the Continent, this was a tremendous task. In the post-Independence scenario, Nehru was able to provide a strong foundation to the political system and clear directions to foreign and domestic policies. Despite the fast changing nature of the international system, Nehruvian perspectives are very relevant even today. This book contains 12 papers, authored by eminent scholars, which critically examine the policies pursued by Nehru in shaping modern India. 184pp.

Hall of Famers, fan favourites, and rising stars including: Ken Caminiti, Tony Gwynn, Junior Seau, LaDainian Tomlinson, Drew Brees, Trevor Hoffman, Jake Peavy, Antonio Gates, Dave Stewart, Tina Mickelson, Geoff Blum, and David Wells. The athletes may have come through San Diego, but interest in them transcends a uniform. A Red Sox fan, for example, will be as thrilled to read about Red Sox heroes Ted Williams and Dave Roberts, as a Padres fan will be. Whether someone is a die-hard or casual sports fan, interested in great people stories, or just curious about the life of a woman reporter 'in a man's world', this book has something for readers across the gamut. No one else has interviewed or done in-depth personal biographies on this particular collection of athletes. For some, the One on One program is the only in-depth and comprehensive story on their life. 638pp.
