By: Parekh, Bhikhu C.
ISBN: 9781403906472.Edition: 1st ed.Publisher: Houndmills, Basingstoke, Hampshire ; New York : Palgrave Macmillan, 2008Description: viii, 317 p.Summary: Globalization puts a severe strain on the ethnic, religious, national and other identities by which we have traditionally defined ourselves and which have given us a sense of rootedness and belonging. In this challenging new book Bhikhu Parekh assesses the fate of a range of identities and considers how these could be reconstituted in a global age. He argues that they need to be integrated within a universal human identity and shows how we can be both rooted and open, belong to both particular communities and to humankind in general. In so doing he exposes the contradictions of religious fundamentalism, terrorism and the war on terror, and provides a new agenda for globally orientated citizenship. (Font: Editor)
