MAKING SENSE OF HISTORY (Society, Culture and Politics)
MAKING SENSE OF HISTORY (Society, Culture and Politics)
Description
About the Book:

Making Sense of History is a historian's exploration of the past and present. Some articles, essays and interviews supplement his scholarly publications, but most reflect Professor Hasan's present-day concerns. Thus, he writes on 11 September, on Palestine and on pogrom in Gujarat. He dwells on the rise of Hindu nationalism and Islamic fundamentalism and critically evaluates their cultural ideological resources. His is a story that resonates with ideas on the contemporary Indian scene.

This book also devotes a section to some of the leading Western and South Asian interpreters of Islam. Without being apologetic about Islamic teachings, Professor Hasan engages with a wide range of topics of concern to contemporary Muslims in India and overseas. Covering a variety of themes including jehad, education, literature and political thought, he clears up some distortions and mispresentations about Islam and Muslim communities.

Professor Hasan airs his views with unusual candour. He is clear in his thinking, lucid in his exposition, and uninhibited in communicating with his newspaper readers.

The book affords many valuable insights and interesting analyses. Readers seeking an understanding of aspects of Indian history and contemporary affairs will find a sensitive handling of the various social, cultural and political issues.

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
