Reviews


This anthology deals with fundamental issues of our time. "Roots and routes" is a nice metaphor for what the contributors to the anthology study in an impressive variety of contexts and from different standpoints: how the dynamism of the modern world that makes move millions of people and interact thousands of cultures is both dependent on the sociocultural traditions and transforms them. What makes the anthology especially valuable is that what is at the very heart of its contributors discussion is human identity in a great variety of its manifestations in the present-day world.

In Roots, Routes and a New Awakening, Professor Ananta Kumar Giri has successfully assembled a consortium of stellar scholars committed to re-worlding away from  the problematic paradigm of difference, thus opening a new canvas towards pluriversity.
