In 1498, when Vasco da Gama set foot in Kerala looking for Christians and spices, he unleashed a wave of political fury that would topple local powers like a house of cards. The cosmopolitan fabric of a vibrant trading society - with its Jewish and Arab merchants, Chinese pirate heroes and masterful Hindu Zamorins - was ripped apart, heralding an age of violence and bloodshed. One prince, however, emerged triumphant from this descent into chaos. Shrewdly marrying Western arms to Eastern strategy, Martanda Varma consecrated the dominion of Travancore, destined to become one of the most dutiful pillars of the British Raj. What followed was two centuries of internecine conflict in one of India's premier princely states, culminating in a dynastic feud between two sisters battling to steer the fortunes of their house on the eve of Independence. Manu S. Pillai's retelling of this sprawling saga focuses on the remarkable life and work of Sethu Lakshmi Bayi, the last - and forgotten - queen of the House of Travancore. The supporting cast includes the flamboyant painter Raja Ravi Varma and his wrathful wife, scheming matriarchs of 'violent, profligate and sordid' character, wife-swapping court favourites, vigilant English agents, quarrelling consorts and lustful kings. Extensively researched and vividly rendered, The Ivory Throne conjures up a dramatic world of political intrigues and factions, black magic and conspiracies, crafty ceremonies and splendorous temple treasures, all harnessed in a tragic contest for power and authority in the age of empire.
A light but powerful way to build dynamic real-time applications using ReactJSAbout This BookLearn how to develop powerful JavaScript applications using ReactJSIntegrate a React-based app with an external API (Facebook login) while using React components, with the Facebook developer appImplement the Reactive paradigm to build stateless and asynchronous apps with ReactWho This Book Is For

This book is for any front-end web or mobile-app developer who wants to learn ReactJS. Knowledge of basic JavaScript will give you a good head start with the book.

What You Will LearnUnderstand the ReactJS basics through an overviewInstall and create your first React componentRefactor the ReactJS component using JSXIntegrate your React application with the Facebook login and Graph API, then fetch data from your liked pages in Facebook and display them in a browserHandle UI elements events with React, respond to users input, and create stateful componentsUse some core lifecycle events for integration and find out about ES6 syntaxes in the React worldUnderstand the FLUX architecture and create an application using FLUX with ReactMake a component more reusable with mixins and validation helpers and structure your components properlyExplore techniques to test your ReactJS codeDeploy your code using webpack and GulpIn Detail

ReactJS, popularly known as the V (view) of the MVC architecture, was developed by the Facebook and Instagram developers. It follows a unidirectional data flow, virtual DOM, and DOM difference that are generously leveraged in order to increase the performance of the UI.

Getting Started with React will help you implement the Reactive paradigm to build stateless and asynchronous apps with React. We will begin with an overview of ReactJS and its evolution over the years, followed by building a simple React component. We will then build the same react component with JSX syntax to demystify its usage. You will see how to configure the Facebook Graph API, get your likes list, and render it using React.

Following this, we will break the UI into components and you'll learn how to establish communication between them and respond to users input/events in order to have the UI reflect their state. You'll also get to grips with the ES6 syntaxes.

Moving ahead, we will delve into the FLUX and its architecture, which is used to build client-side web applications and complements React's composable view components by utilizing a unidirectional data flow. Towards the end, you'll find out how to make your components reusable, and test and deploy them into a production environment. Finally, we'll briefly touch on other topics such as React on the server side, Redux and some advanced concepts.

Style and approach

The book follows a step-by-step, practical, tutorial approach with examples that explain the key concepts of ReactJS. Each topic is sequentially explained and contextually placed to give sufficient details of ReactJS.

The Sun Never Sets collects the work of a generation of scholars who are enacting a shift in the orientation of the field of South Asian American studies which has, until recently, largely centered on literary and cultural analyses of an affluent immigrant population. The contributors focus instead on the histories and political economy of South Asian migration to the U.S.—and upon the lives, work, and activism of specific, often unacknowledged, migrant populations—presenting a more comprehensive vision of the South Asian presence in the United States.  Tracking the shifts in global power that have influenced the paths and experiences of migrants, from expatriate Indian maritime workers at the turn of the century, to Indian nurses during the Cold War, to post-9/11 detainees and deportees caught in the crossfire of the “War on Terror,” these essays reveal how the South Asian diaspora has been shaped by the contours of U.S. imperialism. Driven by a shared sense of responsibility among the contributing scholars to alter the profile of South Asian migrants in the American public imagination, they address the key issues that impact these migrants in the U.S., on the subcontinent, and in circuits of the transnational economy.  Taken together, these essays provide tools with which to understand the contemporary political and economic conjuncture and the place of South Asian migrants within it. Vivek Bald is Assistant Professor of Comparative Media Studies at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and author of Bengali Harlem and the Lost Histories of South Asian America. Miabi Chatterji received her PhD from New York University in American Studies.

Manu Sareen fortæller selv historien om "Hans og Gre-" - nåh nej - "Mohammed og Grete" i bedste Nørrebro-street-stil. Mohammed bliver, i mod sin vilje, tvunget til at spille rollen som Hans i eventyret om Hans og Grete. Han synes, at både ham, der fortæller historien, Grete og hendes forældre taler 'totalt nederen' og synes desuden, at forældrene er mega lede, når de vil af med deres børn på den måde. Men det viser sig at være helt okay, fordi de kommer nemlig til det sygeste hus, der er lavet af noget, der ligner shawarma. 'Herre fråderen,' siger Mohammed og går i gang med at spise, indtil heksen dukker op. 'Totalt bitch,' siger Mohammed, da han havner bag tremmer, men det lykkes ham at narre heksen og redde Grete, der seriøst vil tilbage til far og mor. Det fatter Mohammed ikke. Hun skulle sgu da bare ringe til kommunen og sige, at de er totalt for syge i deres hoveder, at de bare skulle hallalslagtes i stedet for. Nej, det er ikke let at begå sig i et klassisk eventyr, når man til daglig er vant til at slå sine folder på Nørrebro... OM FORFATTEREN Manu Sareen er født i 1967 i Indien og opvokset i Danmark. Til daglig er Manu politiker for Det Radikale Venstre. Han har skrevet en lang række populære børnebøger med humoristisk fokus på indvandring og integration. ANMELDERCITATER "Denne minder om forfatterens egne Klods-Hassan og Hvad fætter gør er altid det rigtige, hvor klassiske eventyr også er bearbejdet med et humoristisk indvandrerfokus. God og sjov leg med og genfortælling af et klassisk eventyr." - Lektør Pia Petersen
