Essays on Modernism, Democracy and Well-being : A Gandhian Perspective Hardback


A tour de force in understanding the failure of democracy in providing human well-being. Has democracy ended human suffering, a task that the political system set out for itself? Or is democracy incompatible with modernity and, therefore, fails to achieve human well-being?

If so, are we left with any option? The book asks these acutely political questions and states emphatically that democracy has failed to ensure the well-being of humanity as a whole.

Further, it tries to answer this by exploring the Gandhian alternative to modernism and democracy in contemporary times.

In the words of the authors themselves, `We are aware that in a world divided into a number of ideological camps, the way out suggested in this book will invite ridicule and accusation of orthodoxy.

However, the truth has to be told, no matter what the reaction'.
