Selected Works Of Govind Ballabh Pant from the Author: Govind Ballabh Pant. Govind Ballabh Pant was in the front rank of nationalist leaders who played a key role, first in India's struggle for freedom and subsequently in the politics and administration of independent India. He was a member of the highest policy-making echelons of the Indian National Congress, Deputy Leader of the Congress party in the Central Legislative Assembly, Chief Minister of U.P. and Home Minister in the Union Cabinet headed by Jawaharlal Nehru. The seventeeth volume of the Selected Works of Govind Ballabh Pant covers nearly twenty-nine months of Pandit Pant's term as union Home Minister, from August 1956 to December 1958. During this period the work of reorganisation of States begun in 1955 was completed and the reorganised States and Union Territories were grouped into five zones to facilitate cooperation among them. Certain territories of Bihar were transferred to West Bengal not on linguistic but geographical consideration. A political solution to the Naga problem besetting the country - specially the State of Assam - for the previous two years was found. Legislation was enacted for slum clearance in Delhi and other Union Territories and the publication of books considered harmful to juveniles and adolescents was made a cognizable offence. Pant also took keen interest in the affairs of the Congress party. Presenting the party's statement on its economic programme before the A.I.C.C. in 1956, he laid emphasis on fulfilling the targets of the Second FiveYear Plan in order to usher in the socialist pattern of society. While campaigning for the general elections in 1957, Pant emphasized the need for eradicating the evils of casteism and communalism which he said, were weakening not only the Congress but the whole country. The Selected Works of Govind Ballabh Pant is a series that will not only document and illuminate the career and personality of an eminent political leader but provide valuable source material for analysts and scholars of modern Indian politics and history.

Biomanagement Of Metal Contaminated Soils from the Author: Mohammad Saghir Khan. Heavy-metal contamination is one of the world's major environmental problems, posing significant risks to agro-ecosystems. Conventional technologies employed for heavy-metal remediation have often been expensive and disruptive. This book provides comprehensive, state-of-the-art coverage of the natural, sustainable alternatives that use a wide range of biological materials in the removal/detoxification of heavy metals, consequently leading to the improvement of crops in these soils. Novel, environmentally friendly and inexpensive solutions are presented based on a sound understanding of metal contamination and the roles of plants and microbes in the management of these toxic soils. Written by worldwide experts, the book provides not only the necessary scientific background but also addresses the challenging questions that require special attention in order to better understand metal toxicity in soils and its management through bioremediation.

Implementing Corporate Social Responsibility from the Author: Subhasis Ray. This book is a compilation of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) theory and practices, with special reference to the Indian context. Over the last few decades, which have seen the onset of globalization, emergence of the industrial sector and an increased focus on community development, much attention has been focused on the role of corporations towards developing those societies where their operations are based. The introduction and evolution of CSR theories and practice in the developed countries has given CSR theorists and practitioners the guidance to appropriately place and implement CSR initiatives to help develop their role in the developed societies. However, while ample literature exists on such CSR practices, little has been done to aid the development of CSR in developing countries. Characterized by peculiar economic, political and social settings, the developing world needed its own blueprint for how CSR works and how it could best succeed. The need for doing is especially pertinent to a country like India, which is presently at a very crucial threshold, economically, politically and socially. Given the need to contextualize CSR theory and practice to the developing context, several CSR theories and practices have been explored in this book, which will provide readers with a thorough understanding of CSR and its successful implementation.

Phosphate Solubilizing Microorganisms from the Author: Mohammad Saghir Khan. This book provides a comprehensive description of phosphate solubilizing microorganisms and highlights methods for the use of microphos in different crop production systems. The focus is on understanding both the basic and applied aspects of phosphate solubilizing microorganisms and how phosphorus-deficient soils can be transformed into phosphorus-rich ones by applying phosphate solubilizing microorganisms. The interaction of rhizosphere phosphate solubilizing microorganisms and environmental variables, as well as their importance in the production of crops such as legumes, cereals, vegetables etc. are discussed and considered. The use of cold-tolerant phosphate solubilizing microorganisms to enhance crop productivity in mountainous regions is examined, as are the ecological diversity and biotechnological implications of phosphate solubilizing microorganisms. Lastly, the role of phosphate solubilizing microorganisms in aerobic rice cultivation is highlighted. This volume offers a broad overview of plant disease management using phosphate solubilizing microbes and presents strategies for the management of cultivated crops. It will therefore be of special interest to both academics and professionals working in the fields of microbiology, soil microbiology, biotechnology and agronomy, as well as the plant protection sciences. This timely reference book provides an essential and comprehensive source of material, as it includes recent findings on phosphate solubilizing microorganisms and their role in crop production.
