Cooking Along the Ganges gathers hundreds of recipes that featured on the menu of the renowned Ganges Restaurant in San Francisco. Including a combination of both authentic North Western (Gujarati) and other, regional-Indian recipes, the book offers a unique panorama of the extremely diverse, Indian tradition of vegetarian cooking. For both the novice cook and the expert chef, Cooking Along the Ganges will serve as a detailed guide that will both demystify the intricacies of Indian cookery and illuminate the health-conscious, flavorful recipes for which the Ganges Restaurant is famous. “All Indian food is not hot; rather it is the variety of spices, and how and when they are added that makes Indian food distinctive.” -Malvi Doshi …Malvi, with her generosity of spirit, is as wonderful a teacher as she is a cook. She presents her recipes in clear, accessible language that allows both the novice and the accomplished cook to achieve authentic flavors again and again. -Michele Anna Jordan, from the Foreword to Cooking Along the Ganges Reviews for the Ganges Restaurant: …Hindu vegetarians ascribe important healing properties to certain foods… Too complex for me, I ignored therapeutics at the Ganges and concentrated on the pure pleasure of eating. Malvi Doshi, it turned out, is a genius. -Sharon Silva, San Francisco Focus Magazine I’d been enjoying Indian food for more than 30 years, but in this unheralded restaurant on a dark, cold street I tasted dishes I’d only read about. -Jim Wood, on the Ganges Restaurant, San Francisco Examiner Image Magazine.

Rabbi on the Ganges: A Jewish-Hindu Encounter is the first work to engage the new terrain of Hindu-Jewish religious encounter. The book offers understanding into points of contact between the two religions of Hinduism and Judaism. Providing an important comparative account, the work illuminates key ideas and practices within the traditions, surfacing commonalities between the jnana and Torah study, karmakanda and Jewish ritual, and between the different Hindu philosophic schools and Jewish thought and mysticism, along with meditation and the life of prayer and Kabbalah and creating dialogue around ritual, mediation, worship, and dietary restrictions. The goal of the book is not only to unfold the content of these faith traditions but also to create a religious encounter marked by mutual and reciprocal understanding and openness.

Winner of the 2006 Gradiva Award A collection of new and previously-published essays that sheds light on the intersections between psychoanalysis and Indic Studies. While Indian academics and clinicians have been familiar with psychoanalysis for many decades, they have kept this Western model of the mind separate from the spiritual and philosophical traditions of their own country. Freud Along the Ganges bridges this important lacuna in psychoanalytic and Indic studies by creating a new theoretical field where human motives are approached not only psychoanalytically but also from the perspective of the teachings of Buddha, Tagore, Ghandi, and Salman Rushdie. The authors of this collection show how the insights of these Indian masters give a new force to the Freudian discovery by providing a basis to better understand the social and psychological Indian makeup. The book begins by questioning the applicability of the psychoanalytic method to non-Western cultures. It then traces the history of the psychoanalytic movement in India from its onset while it emphasizes the intricate overlap between Indian existential and mystical traditions and psychoanalysis. Freud Along the Ganges offers a unique study of the ways that Indian thought and psychoanalysis illuminate and enrich each other.

An engrossing look at the cultural consequences of technological change and globalization Space radar, infrared photography, carbon dating, DNA analysis, microfilm, digital data bases-we have better technology than ever for studying and preserving the past. And yet the by-products of technology threaten to destroy--in one or two generations--monuments, works of art, and ways of life that have survived thousands of years of hardship and war. This paradox is central to our age. We use the Internet to access and assess infinite amounts of information--but understand less and less of its historical context. Globalization may eventually benefit countries around the world; it will also, almost certainly, lead to the disappearance of hundreds of regional dialects, languages, and whole societies. In The Future of the Past, Alexander Stille takes us on a tour of the past as it exists today and weighs its prospects for tomorrow, from China to Somalia to Washington, D.C. Through incisive portraits of their protagonists, he describes high-tech struggles to save the Great Sphinx and the Ganges; efforts to preserve Latin within the Vatican; the digital glut inside the National Archives, which may have lost more information in the information age than ever before; an oral culture threatened by a "new" technology: writing itself. Wherever it takes him, Stille explores not just the past, but our ideas about the past, how they are changing--and how they will have to change if our past is to have a future.
