SECULARISM AND ITS CRITICS: Themes in Politics
SECULARISM AND ITS CRITICS: Themes in Politics
Description
About the Book:

The Themes in Politics series brings together the most significant articles and debates on important issues in Indian politics. This volume deals with the concept of secularism and answers the challenges posed to it by the recent resurgence in organized religion and religious faiths. It dwells on the need for a separation between religion and politics and grapples with the question whether modern secularism has the cultural and philosophical resources to enable people with differing faiths to live together. This book will be of interest to academics and scholars as well as journalists, activists and all those interested in religion and politics.

About the Author:

Rajeev Bhargava is Professor in the Department of Political Science at Delhi University.

Excerpts from Review:

'...a brave endeavour to revive the debate on secularism with the appropriate emphasis on basis humanitarian values'

-Economic and Political Weekly

'The issues raised by this book are of great moment ...this collection [is] enormously enlightening and provocative.'

-The Book Review

'It...consolidates a particularly rich debate on the subject.'

-Indian Economic and Social History Review

'Considering the paucity of detailed material in this "borderland" between sociology, politics and philosophy, Bhargava deserves unstinting praise for his book.'

-Interventions

'Rajeev Bhargava deserves our gratitude for having compiled a useful book of readings on the vexed subject of secularism'

-Indian Review of Books
