The study of human behavior in a social setting, sociology forms an important part of our lives. It helps in making the readers aware of the influence social factors can have on their lives and their surroundings. Focusing on recent social unrest in the world, how the students reacted with protests, global financial crisis and the situation in the middle-east, Sociology takes into account all the aspects that impact the human social standing with vivid explanations.


This fully revised and updated version of Anthony Giddens′s Sociology, now in its fifth edition, offers an unrivaled introduction for students new to the subject – lucid, lively, authoritative and original. Written by one of the world′s leading sociologists, this comprehensive textbook manages to be clear, accessible and jargon-free, but without oversimplifying complex debates. 

Earlier editions of Sociology broke new ground by incorporating cutting–edge debates, such as the impact of globalization, into an introductory text. This fifth edition remains a state of the art textbook, with fresh and engaging new material added throughout. While covering all of the core topics of sociology, the fifth edition also includes a great deal of substantive new material, ensuring that students are introduced to the most recent sociological debates. Throughout, the book weaves together classical and contemporary theory and data, and provides a wide range of everyday examples to which students can easily relate.

Cooperatives: Present And Future Perspective

This global recession has compelled many Bangladeshi employees to return home from Malaysia, Middle East and other countries.

The Design of Everyday Things

In The Design of Everyday Things, the author writes about how design serves as a mode of communication between object and user. The author also provides ways of improving this communication to make the experience of using the object pleasurable. This book was published in 1988 and was initially titled The Psychology of Everyday Things. But later the author and his friends felt that the present title of the book conveyed the content of the book better. One of the major highlights of the book is that although people most often blame themselves when objects malfunction, it is not the fault of the customer but a lack of intuitive guidance which is lacking in the design. The book is packed with case studies which describe the psychology of good and bad designs along with several design principles by the author. This book will make for an interesting read for people from a wide range of disciplines including behavioral psychology, ergonomics, and design practice.

Emotional Intelligence

It was an unbearably steamy August afternoon in New York City, the kind of sweaty day that makes people sullen with discomfort. I was heading back to a hotel, and as I stepped onto a bus up Madison Avenue I was startled by the driver, a middle-aged black man with an enthusiastic smile, who welcomed me with a friendly, “Hi! How you doing?" as I got on, a greeting he proffered to everyone else who entered as the bus wormed through the thick midtown traffic. Each passenger was as startled as I, and, locked into the morose mood of the day, few returned his greeting.

Leonardo da Vinci

An absolutely compelling portrayal of an inspiring genius. Isaacson reminds us of Leonardo’s humanity and the source of his great ability: insatiable curiosity and emboldened imagination. It not only made me respect the man more but showed me how we all can be a bit more like Leonardo

The Sins of the Father

Tom Bradshaw is arrested for first degree murder. He stands accused of killing his brother. When Sefton Jelks, a top Manhattan lawyer, offers his services for nothing, penniless Tom has little choice but to accept his assurance of a lighter sentence. After Tom is tried, found guilty and sentenced, Jelks disappears, and the only way for him to prove his innocence would be to reveal his true identity – something that he has sworn never to do in order to protect the woman he loves. Meanwhile, the young woman in question travels to New York, leaving their son behind in England, having decided she'll do whatever it takes to find the man she was to marry – unwilling to believe that he died at sea. The only proof she has is a letter. A letter that has remained unopened on a mantelpiece in Bristol for over a year. Jeffrey Archer continues the saga of The Clifton Chronicles with this epic second novel in the series, The Sins of the Father. Family loyalties are stretched to their limits as secrets unravel, and the story moves from the backstreets of Bristol to the boardrooms of Manhattan.
