Time Treks by Ashis Nandy
Book Description"Time Treks" uses the metaphor of the future - imagined utopias, conceptions of cultural possibilities, social critiques of things to come - and redefines the present. In a world increasingly dominated by a narrow range of ideologies, social ethics and a more humane society can be based on something other than the political and psychological forces that have tried to flatten and homogenize the world over the last two centuries.
