Reflections and Mobilizations: Dialogues with Movements and Voluntary Organizations

Ananta Kumar Giri (Author)
Synopsis This unusual book is about a more humane world in the making. It describes the visions, experiments, struggles and aspirations of several social movements and voluntary organizations from India and other parts of the world which are striving to realize new modes of human development in various fields--education, religion, human rights, tribal development and community development. The author shows how these movements and organizations touch on many key contemporary issues-self-development, reconstitution of public space and reconstruction of government. The book is structured as a series of dialogues where the participants critique their lives, as also their organizations or movements. The objective of putting together these dialogues is to facilitate a learning process between scholars and activists and across movements and organizations. Lucidity written and elegantly argued, this is perhaps the first book to bring together multiple voices to our understanding of the limits and possibilities for social movements and voluntary organizations. It will appeal to a wide readership in the fields of social sciences and humanities besides being of interest to activists and socially aware people throughout the world.
