  • Sinister Yogisby David Gordon White

    University of Chicago Press 2010; US$ 25.00

    Since the 1960s, yoga has become a billion-dollar industry in the West, attracting housewives and hipsters, New Agers and the old-aged. But our modern conception of yoga derives much from nineteenth-century European spirituality, and the true story of yoga?s origins in South Asia is far richer, stranger, and more entertaining than most of us realize.... more...

  • Yoga in Practiceby David Gordon White

    Princeton University Press 2011; US$ 33.95

    Yoga is a body of practice that spans two millennia and transcends the boundaries of any single religion, geographic region, or teaching lineage. In fact, over the centuries there have been many "yogas"--yogas of battlefield warriors, of itinerant minstrels and beggars, of religious reformers, and of course, the yogas of mind and body so popular today.... more...

  • Kiss of the Yoginiby David Gordon White

    University of Chicago Press 2006; US$ 30.00

    For those who wonder what relation actual Tantric practices bear to the "Tantric sex" currently being marketed so successfully in the West, David Gordon White has a simple answer: there is none. Sweeping away centuries of misunderstandings and misrepresentations, White returns to original texts, images, and ritual practices to reconstruct the history... more...

  • The "Yoga Sutra of Patanjali"by David Gordon White

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 24.95

    Consisting of fewer than two hundred verses written in an obscure if not impenetrable language and style, Patanjali?s Yoga Sutra is today extolled by the yoga establishment as a perennial classic and guide to yoga practice. As David Gordon White demonstrates in this groundbreaking study, both of these assumptions are incorrect. Virtually forgotten... more...

  • Japan's Changing Generationsby Gordon Mathews; Bruce White

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 53.95

    This book argues that 'the generation gap' in Japan is something more than young people resisting the adult social order before entering and conforming to that order. Rather, it signifies something more fundamental: the emergence of a new Japan, which may be quite different from the Japan of postwar decades. It argues that while young people in Japan... more...

  • Philosophers as Educational Reformers (International Library of the Philosophy of Education Volume 10)by Peter Gordon; John White

    Taylor and Francis 2010; US$ 170.00

    This volume assesses how far the ideas and achievements of the 19th century British Idealist philosophical reformers are  still important for us today when considering fundamental questions about the structure and objectives of the education system in England and Wales. Part 1 examines those ideas of the Idealists, especially T. H. Green, which had... more...

  • German Seaman 1939-45by Gordon Williamson; John White

    Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 14.95

    When re-armament came after World War I, the German Navy was forced to build anew, so the Reichsmarine and its successor, the Kriegsmarine, found itself in possession of some of the most modern, powerful and technically advanced vessels in the world. Germany was very selective in picking her sailors and the quality of manpower skill levels was thus... more...

  • The East Asian Welfare Modelby Roger Goodman; Huck-Ju Kwon; Gordon White

    Taylor and Francis 2006; US$ 72.95

    For many politicians and observers in the West, East Asia has provided a broad range of positive images of the state's intervention in society. Neoliberals grew excited by popular welfare systems that cost little in expenditure and bureaucracy. Social-democrats thought they had found a model for social cohesion and equality. In fact the reality in... more...

  • Spoils of Warby Renée T. White; Denean T. Sharpley-Whiting; Chela Sandoval; Janet Afary; Berenice A. Carroll; Lewis R. Gordon; Joy A. James; Jacqueline M. Martinez; Shahrzad Mojab; Valérie Orlando; Marjorie Salvodon; T Denean Sharpley-Whiting
