Overview

'Here is an engrossing book that ferrets out a panoptic account of contemporary moderity: its forms and features, discords and discontents, triumphs and tensions, politics and paradoxes, problems and possibilities'                 —Mainstream

'In contrast to other recent books on globalisation, Professor Pathak’s book makes good use of the writer’s personal experiences to clarify and support his argument on alternative modernity, symmetrical globalisation and cultural unity'               —Statesman

'This book is a rewarding read for anyone whose concern is with finding positive solutions to the issues of modernity, globalisation and identity'   —Deccan Herald

'The book presents a point of view, not just critical of the official version of modernity, but a constructive, optimistic alternative to it that is closer to the agenda of a humane, egalitarian and empathetic society, modern in its flavour and symmetrical in essence'        —Sociological Bulletin
