Defence journalism, though very much a part of modern day journalism, has practically very little literature for reference. Being the first book on defence journalism, with special reference to India, it analyses the love-hate relationship between the military and the media. For the first time the definition of defence journalism has been encoded by the author. The book elaborates the essential information, facts, sources, and the qualities required to become a successful defence journalist. A code of ethics for defence writers and the caution against pitfalls of defence reporting is the hallmark of the book.

Internal Vulnerabilities, External Challenges
Author: Harsh V. Pant
Category: Political Science
The Indian Navy has gradually emerged as an indispensable tool of Indian diplomacy in recent years, making it imperative for Indian policy-makers and naval thinkers to think anew the role of the nation’s naval forces in Indian strategy. There is a long tradition in India of viewing the maritime dimension of security as central to the nation’s strategic priorities. With India's economic rise, India is trying to bring that focus back, making its navy integral to national grand strategy. This volume is the first full-length examination of the myriad issues that have emerged out of the recent rise of Indian naval power.

The Indian media is witnessing an explosive situation with newspaper and magazine circulations increasing in great numbers and television news channels—in both English and regional languages—going up by the day. Internet news portals, too, are recording a good number of hits. Journalism, then, holds tremendous promise for both seasoned and budding journalists. However, behind every promise, there lurk dangers and temptations, which must be scrupulously avoided if the basic values of the profession are to be safeguarded. Otherwise, the relentless spotlight of criticism will turn on journalism and its practitioners. 21st Century Journalism in India is a path-breaking book that looks at the practices and theories of journalism in the 21st century. This collection of writings by practising journalists is perhaps unique in that they have turned the spotlight on their own profession. The volume is thematically divided into four sections: - REPRESENTING THE UNREPRESENTED deals with media representation (or lack of it) of largely ignored sections of society, such as homosexuals, Dalits and other minorities or weaker groups. - THE PLURALITY OF PRACTICE studies the coverage of vital areas such as economics, legal issues, science, arts and culture, and humour. - MEDIA IN PERSPECTIVE looks at different kinds of journalistic practices, including photojournalism - FUTURE TRENDS discusses newer forms of journalism, like blogging and citizen journalism.

A Journey into the Inspiring Lives of Special Children and Their Families.
Author: Dr. Anantha Krishnan M.
Publisher: Partridge Publishing
Precious Souls: A journey into the inspiring lives of special children and their families, is a first of its kind effort to understand the world of children with special needs and create awareness among people about their small requirements. There are 24 lives in the book and all are replete with grim determination -- so unlike us they are, but so courageously they live. Precious Souls calls for each reader to give nothing, but share all the love that they have whenever they see a special child. Equal share of your love, confidence and support should also go to their parents, who nurtured their special child, without losing hope. Even though they have seen surroundings with healthy children, when they look home, they have found a certain incompleteness, but they never lost courage, and fought the battle with destiny, emerging victorious. Their profoundness is worth ounces of admiration. The book explores disappointments and triumph in a narrative manner; the author telling each life as it went on during his interaction with the families. The style gets the reader involved as if he or she is seeing the child or their parents right in front of them. Late Dr A P J Abdul Kalam was so touched by the subject that he even wrote the foreword for the book. To give a glimpse of a few stories, the book narrates the life of ten-year-old Diwakar Bhaskar who is diagnosed with Maple Syrup Urine Disease (MSUD), a metabolic disorder passed down through families in which the body cannot break down certain parts of proteins. But he trounced his disorder and found his calling in painting, drawing works of art which has a rare balance of colour and sensitive strokes. An example is the logo of the Precious Souls, which the author has used to mark the immense talent in each of the special children featured in the book. Then there is thirty four-year-old S Sushmitha Danabalana, who had developmental delays compared to other children, when born. Now, she is independent and part of her salary goes to sponsoring the education of a differently-abled student. She has even won the Karnataka State Women's Achievement Award. The book tells the tale of 15-year-old Adithya Venkatesh, who suffers from from Pervasive Developmental Delay (PDD), a type of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) that slows down the ability to perceive things. But with classical music he has awed everybody and his penchant for music has been removing all barriers he faces on a daily basis. With these 24 lives, the author has managed to bring out the true essence of life - nobody is perfect, and in the pursuit of perfection, we all are on the same road. It is necessary of all of us to get together and encourage children with disabilities and lend support in the form of understanding their families. Together, we can bring a change in their lives, a message crystal clear through Precious Souls. The author, Dr Anantha Krishnan M, is a seasoned aerospace and defence journalist in India. A disciple of Dr Kalam, he is currently entrusted with the task of carrying forward a digital initiative of the former President, Billion Beats. He also spearheads Inspired Indian Foundation (IIF), a movement for unsung heroes. His first book A Different Spirit, is a moving biography of wheelchair athlete Malathi K Holla. Similar to his first book, the author has pledged part proceeds from the book for the activities of IIF.

In most accounts of Olympic history across the world, India's Olympic journey is a mere footnote. This book is a corrective. Drawing on newly available and hitherto unused archival sources, it demonstrates that India was an important strategic outpost in the Olympic movement that started as a global phenomenon at the turn of the twentieth century. Among the questions the authors answer are: When and how did the Olympic ideology take root in India? Who were the early players and why did they appropriate Olympic sport to further their political ambitions? What explains India's eight consecutive gold medals in Olympic men’s hockey between 1928 and 1956 and what altered the situation drastically, so much so that the team failed to qualify for the 2008 Beijing Games? India and the Olympics also explores why the Indian elite became obsessed with the Olympic ideal at the turn of the twentieth century and how this obsession relates to India's quest for a national and international identity. It conclusively validates the contention that the essence of Olympism does not reside in medals won, records broken or television rights sold as ends in themselves. Particularly for India, the Olympic movement, including the relevant records and statistics, is important because it provides a unique prism to understand the complex evolution of modern Indian society.
