Athens, Ohio: Ohio University Press , [1983]. Octavo, navy blue cloth (hardcover), gilt letters, xii, 387 pp. Very Good+, with light edgewear, in a like dust jacket. Keller has written an excellent, unusual business history. It is actually a series of mini-business histories and overall is a most interesting story of the growth of a great segment of American industry -- primarily engines and hand tools -- from the inventions and entrepreneurship of individuals dating back to the early 19th century. He has done a remarkable job of weaving all these stories together in order to tell the ultimately bigger story of the growth and diversification of Cooper. He emphasizes the American free enterprise values and system which have made our industrial growth possible and are the nations strength. He has put all his stories in the proper national historical framework, economic and political. The book is obviously carefully researched and makes a real contribution to business history., Ohio University Press, Durham.: Duke University Press. 2009. Maps, black and white illustrations, xv + 325pp, notes, glossary, bibliography, index. Very good paperback copy. How do people come to live as they ought to live? "Crooked Stalks" seeks an answer to this enduring question in diverse practices of cultivation: in the moral horizons of development intervention, in the forms of virtue through which people may work upon their own desires, deeds, and habits, and in the material labours that turn inhabited worlds into environments for both moral and natural growth. Focusing on the colonial subjection and contemporary condition of the Piramalai Kallar caste - classified, condemned, and policed for decades as a 'criminal tribe' - Anand Pandian argues that the work of cultivation in all of these senses has been essential to the pursuit of modernity in south India. Colonial engagements with the Kallars in the early twentieth century relied heavily upon agrarian strategies of moral reform, an approach that echoed longstanding imaginations of the rural cultivator as a morally cultivated being in Tamil literary, moral, and religious tradition. These intertwined histories profoundly shape how people of the community struggle with themselves as ethical subjects today.In vivid, inventive, and engaging prose, Pandian weaves together ethnographic encounters, archival investigations, and elements drawn from Tamil poetry, prose, and popular cinema. Tacking deftly between ploughed soils and plundered orchards, schoolroom lessons and stationhouse registers, household hearths and riverine dams, he reveals moral life in the postcolonial present as a palimpsest of traces inherited from multiple pasts. Pursuing these legacies through the fragmentary play of desire, dream, slander, and counsel, Pandian calls attention not only to the moral potential of ordinary existence, but also to the inescapable force of accident, chance, and failure in the making of ethical lives. Rarely are the moral coordinates of modern power sketched with such intimacy and delicacy. ., Duke University Press, 2009
