What the Reviewer's say



"Concepts and Applications of Microwave Engineering by Dr Sanjay Kumar, published by PHI is very useful book for the students at UG as well as PG level. Satellite Communication & Radar Engineering concepts have strengthened the integrity of contents of the Book. Beautiful examples, solved problems and conceptual approach of the book could be of great help to the students aspiring for various public sector and other competitive examinations.

The book may be very well recommended to UG students of Electronics Engineering, Electronics & Telecommunication Engineering and other allied disciplines.
"


-Dr G.R. Sinha, Professor (Electronics & Telecommunication) & Associate Director, 
Shri Shankaracharya Technical Campus 


"Microwave Engineering is a contemporary subject which has tremendous use not only in military applications but also in our day to day applications like communication, heating, medical appliances, remote sensing etc. Needless to emphasize that the subject book provides comprehensive coverage of entire gamut of RF and microwaves related topics. The book has been carefully crafted to make the concepts clear keeping in view the requirements of the beginners. The flow and simplicity of the language makes readers comfortable and encourage them to read.

The complicated derivations have been provided in the book in a simplified manner so that students can easily understand. The numerical examples are based on practical utilities and they have been framed aptly to make the concepts further clear which are useful to students. The authors have provided a variety of multiple choice questions with unsolved numerical problems with answers in the book to benefit the students.

Publisher deserved due appreciation for organizing the book with good quality of print for text as well as pictorial diagrams."

-Dr. K. M. Reddy, Scientist 'H', GD and Associate Director, DARE, DRDO, Bangalore

"The book started with fundamentals and covered required aspects of microwave engineering in a simplified manner. Competitive exams are forcing students to prepare for MCQ's, a fact that has been adequately catered for in the book: Quick Summary, Review Questions. MCQs and Numerical Problems are definably useful to students.

Experience in the field of Microwave has helped the authors to share their thoughts clearly. Material included from referred research journal papers and books adequately authenticate the research work undertaken by the authors in writing this book.

This book is useful to undergraduate, postgraduates, scientists, practitioners and teachers."

-Dr. B.P. Patil, Professor and Head, Dept. of E&TC, Army Institute of Technology

"The outstanding aspect of this book is in terms of lucid, easy to understand style in which it is written making a beginner very comfortable to understand the fundamentals. Starting from introduction to microwaves, the chapters following that give how microwaves travel, amplified, measured, and applied in real time to antenna and radar system. The genesis of modern satellite systems too is covered."


-Anil Sahasrabudhe, Director, College of Engineering Pune

IPA Press Release


New appointments to IPA's leadership bodies


Geneva, 14 October 2014

The International Publishers Association has made a number of new appointments during its annual General Assembly in Frankfurt.

Michiel Kolman of Elsevier has been elected IPA Vice President while Brian Wafawarowa of Pearson South Africa and Bodour Al Qasimi of Kalimat Publishing Group have joined the IPA Executive Committee (EC). Trasvin Jittidecharak of Silkworm Books, Riccardo Cavallero of Mondadori and Asoke Ghosh of PHI Learning Pvt. Ltd have all been re-elected to the EC. Simon Littlewood of Random House will replace Bloomsbury’s Richard Charkin on the EC once Mr Charkin takes up office as IPA President in January 2015.

Paul Doda of Elsevier is the new chair of IPA’s Copyright Committee, while Ibrahim El Moallem and Ana María Cabanellas have left the Executive Committee, having completed their terms of office.

IPA President Youngsuk ‘Y.S.’ Chi commented: “I would particularly like to thank Ana María Cabanellas and Ibrahim El Moallem for their service, each over a dozen active years. Ana María has been a powerful speaker for the publishing industry in Latin America. She has led IPA as president (2004-2008) and has drawn attention all over the world on the issues of piracy, free circulation of materials and the role of publishing in emerging countries.

Ibrahim has provided wisdom, insight and leadership to IPA particularly by putting the Arab publishing industry on the world map. Through him we have witnessed the struggles of publishers in these times of momentous changes in this region. It has been an honour to serve with a publisher who has risked his life, livelihood and future by standing up for the values of freedom of expression and freedom to publish.”

IPA is deeply indebted to both Ana María and Ibrahim for their tireless efforts and count on their continued engagement with us on the issues that they care so passionately about.”

About The Book

Description:
Politics cannot grow in isolation; at the same time society learns from the changing ethos of polity. A relatively young subject, Political Sociology tries to seek research excellence, in its process of evolution.

This book on Political Sociology deals with different variables of society which influence various facets of political dynamics. It also analyzes attitude and behavioural pattern of the public who act as political actors. As a branch of political science, the book draws attention to the very nature of this inter-disciplinary study. All the chapters are conceptualized to strengthen the bond between the polity and the society and vice-versa. This book is an attempt to widen the frontier of political science with an empirical approach.

Intended for the undergraduate and postgraduate students of Political Science and Sociology, the book will enrich the students indulged in research works and those who are preparing for the Civil Services examinations as well.
