Population movement has now become a central issue in international relations. This has led to a closer examination of not only the reasons for international migration but also of the varied and mixed experiences of the migrants in the receiving state. A particular focus of such examination has been to understand the process through which international migration transforms itself into a diaspora.

The ethnic conflict in Bosnia shocked the world. Most people were taken aback that a part of Europe could return to such a degree of hatred and calculated violence indicating that the lessons of the Second World War, in particular, the ethnic cleansing of minorities and Holocaust horrors, have been ignored and that these evils are very much in the cards even today. This book is about the way the Bosnian conflict generated, the role of Britain and France in it, and above all, its lessons for Muslims the world over.

This book is a significant contribution to the literature on comparative entrepreneurship. Studies in this area are few and far between. Still fewer are works dealing with historical experiences of different societies in the realm of entrepreneurship. A cross-national analysis with focus on a long time horizon should most likely provide a deeper understanding of the phenomenon. This is what this book does. Another and the principal purpose of this work is to comprehend the essential dynamics of Indian Business behavior.

The thrust of the book is on understanding the human security situation and then exploring the journey ahead towards enhancement of human security in India.

The present volume examines the case for broadening the scope of security by breaking the rigidity brought about by traditional forms of dominant state-centric and military based security concepts and their determining matrices. The main thrust of this study is on three very critical areas, viz., (i) environmental security, (ii) food security and (iii) energy security. It deals with how gains from effective management of human security parameters get translated into enhanced security both at the macro and micro levels.
