transformation. His use of (Indian) philosophy and religious history to interpret art was at odds with traditional scholarship. His vast knowledge of Hindu mythology and philosophy (particularly Puranic and Tantric (Tantra) works) gave him insights into the art, insights that were appreciated by Joseph Campbell among others. Campbell edited many of Zimmer's writings after his death. The psychiatrist Carl Jung also developed a long-standing relationship with Zimmer


main theories

of the two main theories postulate that the first settlers were fully modern humans. Asian Genetic studies have demonstrated that there are similarities between Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, Melanesians and Indians. However, the early suggested date of 60, 000 years ago for initial settlement is quite early when compared to other areas in the world. This may suggest that the Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population derives from an early African population which migrated along the south coast of Asia, at a much faster rate than other populations migrating across the continents of the Holocene. While at Bluffton College, he was mentored by Dr. Lawrence Templin, a noted pacifist (Pacifism) who had been imprisoned for his beliefs and was now a professor of English literature. Templin had grown up in India as the son of Christian missionaries and who knew Mohandas Gandhi (Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi) personally. See, generally: Templin, 1999. Templin's teachings deeply influence Velásquez's approach to securing social justice for farmworkers. Templin knew Bayard Rustin while in prison, D'Emilio, 2003, p. 118. and Templin encouraged him to volunteer with the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE)—a civil rights organization in which Rustin played a major role. Baldemar Velásquez spent several weeks in the summer of 1968 working with CORE and living with an African American family in Cleveland, Ohio. "Velásquez, Baldemar," in ''The Mexican American Experience: An Encyclopedia,'' 2003, p. 412. After graduation, he spent time picking cherries in Michigan to pay off his student loans, and went to Wisconsin to meet with the founder of Obreros Unidos, Jesus Salas (also known as "Jesse Salas").

At 48kb it is way over the recommended limit of 32kb. If I were reviewing it in the FAC, I would object until the size is brought down. You see, articles like these have discrete sections (as opposed to continous sections such as History) and can very well be shortened. (See Talk:United States - ''Quest for shortnening'' where I've lent my comments on the article size). The second point I've found lacking are inline references. If you say ''005–06 budget provides $2.5 billion'' show me where you have referenced the figure from. Take a look at India for how this is achieved.   Nichalp (user:Nichalp) (Talk (User Talk:Nichalp)) 06:52, May 25, 2005 (UTC) *Thanks for your comment. First up, size, at least in my experience, isn't an issue for FACs anymore with many exceeding the 32kb suggested limit. There are parts that could potentially be shortened, and I'll have another go at that. I think that for a summrary article of this type it is impractical to use footnotes so I used inote, the references are there but you need to be in edit mode to see them, there is no policy on refernce style an dinote is preferred by many editors. --nixie (User:Petaholmes) 07:05, 25 May 2005 (UTC) ******Hmmm. I actually like a mixture of Footnotes 2 and 3. I like 2 because of the in text number does not have brackets (less clunky) and 3 for the 'where in the text' link. But hey, can't have your cake and eat it, right? Oh, and shouldn't the footnote be placed after the full stop (period)? But then, I suppose that wouldn't work (with the template and all). So footnote 4 it is?--Cyberjunkie (User:Cyberjunkie) 10:28, 25 May 2005 (UTC) ***I don't believe that by reducing the article length you are sacrificing quality. I've long been involved with the India page, and as you can see, the entire contents of the page totals 29kb. A million things could be said about Australia and future editors could very well go on adding stuff here. That's why we need a summary here and the best way to do so is by précis writing. For a good summary of a long article see the History section of India. You may also read the Wikipedia:WikiProject Countries on what sections are recommended.   Nichalp (user:Nichalp) (Talk (User Talk:Nichalp)) 09:19, May 25, 2005 (UTC) Wittfogel is best known for his monumental work ''Oriental Despotism: A Comparative Study of Total Power'', first published in 1957. Starting from a Marxist analysis of the ideas of Max Weber on China and India's "hydraulic-bureaucratic official-state" and building on Marx's sceptical view of the Asiatic Mode of Production, Wittfogel came up with an analysis of Oriental despotism which emphasized the role of irrigation works, the bureaucratic structures needed to maintain them and the impact that these had on society, coining the term "hydraulic empire" to describe the system. In his view, many societies, mainly in Asia, relied heavily on the building of large-scale irrigation works. To do this, the state had to organize forced labor from the population at large. This required a large and complex bureaucracy staffed by competent and literate officials. This structure was uniquely placed to also crush civil society and any other force capable of mobilizing against the state. Such a state would inevitably be despotic, powerful, stable and wealthy. publisher Ithaka Harbors, Inc in many parts of the world including Southeast Asia, Taiwan, India, Australia, and West Africa.

India

'''India''' ( China, Nepal, and Bhutan to the north-east; and Burma and Bangladesh to the east. In the Indian Ocean, India is in the vicinity of Sri Lanka and the Maldives; in addition, India's Andaman and Nicobar Islands share a maritime border with Thailand and Indonesia.

Home to the ancient Indus Valley Civilisation and a region of historic trade routes and vast empires, the Indian subcontinent was identified with its commercial and cultural wealth for much of its long history. Four religions—Hinduism (Hinduism in India), Buddhism (History of Buddhism in India), Jainism (Jainism in India), and Sikhism (Sikhism in India)—originated here, whereas Judaism, Zoroastrianism (Parsi), Christianity (Christianity in India), and Islam (Islam in India) arrived in the 1st millennium CE (Common Era) and also helped shape the region's diverse culture (Culture of India). Gradually annexed by and brought under the administration of the British East India Company (Company rule in India) from the early 18th century and administered directly by the United Kingdom (British Raj) after Indian Rebellion of 1857, India became an independent nation in 1947 after a struggle for independence (Indian independence movement) that was marked by non-violent resistance led by Mahatma Gandhi (Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi).

The Indian economy (Economy of India) is the world's tenth-largest by nominal GDP (List of countries by GDP (nominal)) and third-largest by purchasing power parity (List of countries by GDP (PPP)) (PPP). Following market-based economic reforms (Economic liberalisation in India) in 1991, India became one of the fastest-growing major economies (List of countries by real GDP growth rate (latest year)); it is considered a newly industrialised country. However, it continues to face the challenges of poverty (poverty in India), corruption (Corruption in India), malnutrition (Malnutrition in India), inadequate public healthcare (Healthcare in India), and terrorism (Terrorism in India). A nuclear weapons state and a regional power (Power (international relations)#Power as status), it has the third-largest standing army (List of countries by number of troops) in the world and ranks ninth in military expenditure (List of countries by military expenditures) among nations. India is a federal (Federalism) constitutional republic governed under a parliamentary system consisting of 29 states and 7 union territories (States and territories of India). India is a pluralistic (Pluralism (political philosophy)), multilingual (Languages of India), and a multi-ethnic society. It is also home to a diversity of wildlife (Wildlife of India) in a variety of protected habitats (Protected areas of India).
