Romila Thapar'smonographrepresentsa very realisticapproachto the political and social structure of the MauryanAge which had its culmination in AMoka,the monarch and monk, the "Kaiserund Missionar",the Indian Constantine-as modern scholars have called him. Thapar interprets him as man and monarch in the first place, and not as monk and missionary, and she regards the historical efficiency of his conversion to Buddhism as more relevant than the degree of his religious conviction. She cannot but say that A4oka was an ambitious ruler who had found in Buddhism a "socio-intellectualmovement" which practicallysuited his imperial aims as a "cementing factor". Dhamma ought to be interpretedas an ethical concept and not as a religious idea. It is refreshing to see that Dr. Thaparis obviously unimpressed by the glorified image which later legend and recent researchhas formed of this Buddhist emperor.

Romila Thapar born 30 November is an Indian historian. Her principal area of study is ancient India , a field in which she is pre-eminent. Thapar's special contribution is the use of social-historical methods to understand change in the mid-first millennium BCE in northern India. As lineage-based Indo-Aryan pastoral groups moved into the Gangetic Plain , they created rudimentary forms caste -based states. The epics Ramayana and the Mahabharata , in her analysis, offer vignettes of how these groups and others negotiated new, more complex, forms of loyalty in which stratification, purity, and exclusion played a greater if still fluid role. The late journalist Romesh Thapar was her brother. Later she attended intermediate of arts at Wadia College , Pune.

The area was a subcontinent of multiple and diverse patterns of living, of languages and of forms of worship. This is apparent not only from textual sources but Ashoka of the Maurya dynasty is today perceived as one of the greatest rulers of our history. Why was this extraordinary ruler seemingly ignored by some; why has he become so prominent in recent times? Is it possible to draw ideas from him for our contemporary concerns without doing harm to the historical context?

Стратмор рассмеялся: - Несколько миллионов. Ты понимаешь, сколько стоит эта штука. Любое правительство выложит любые деньги.

 - Маловероятно. Помимо всего прочего, в списке очередности указано, что это посторонний файл. Надо звонить Стратмору.

Сьюзан едва дышала. Отчаянно вырываясь из его рук, Сьюзан локтем с силой ударила Хейла. Он отпустил ее и прижал ладони к лицу. Из носа у него пошла кровь.

 Бастион рухнул! - крикнул техник, сидевший в задней части комнаты.  - Обнажился второй щит. - Нужно приступать к отключению, - настаивал Джабба.  - Судя по ВР, у нас остается около сорока пяти минут. Отключение - сложный процесс.

Хейл сразу же растерялся, не зная, как истолковать примирительный тон коммандера, и немного ослабил хватку на горле Сьюзан. - Н-ну, - заикаясь начал он, и голос его внезапно задрожал.  - Первым делом вы отдаете мне пистолет. И оба идете со. - В качестве заложников? - холодно усмехнулся Стратмор.
