The Asian Future: Dialogues for Change (Volume II)
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungFor several decades the Western model of development has been criticized forcefully from Asia. But there has been little intellectual articulation of what the alternatives might be--at a micro and macro level--from an Asian perspective. Do the various communities in Asia share anything significant beyond an abhorrence of the local effects of globalization and Western dominance? These two volumes bring together the ideas and experiences of some of the outstanding politicians, intellectuals and social activists from diverse traditions and faiths in Asia. Through in-depth interviews and dialogues an understanding of shared spiritual, social and ecological values emerges.
