The Secular in South, East, and Southeast Asia

The Secular in South, East, and Southeast Asia by Kenneth Dean
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 (2019 Edition) | 329 Pages | ISBN : 3319893688 | 5.87 MB

This innovative edited collection provides a comprehensive analysis of modern secularism across Asia which contests and expands prevailing accounts that have predominantly focused on the West. Its authors highlight that terms like ‘secular’, ‘secularization’, and ‘secularism’ do not carry the same meanings in the very different historical and cultural contexts of Asia. Critiquing Charles Taylor’s account of secularism, this book examines what travelled and what not in ‘the imperial encounter’ between Western secular modernity and other traditions outside of the West.

Refugees, Citizenship and Belonging in South Asia: Contested Terrains

Refugees, Citizenship and Belonging in South Asia: Contested Terrains by Nasreen Chowdhory
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 193 Pages | ISBN : 9811301964 | 2.88 MB

This book examines forced migration of two refugees groups in South Asia. The author discusses the claims of “belonging” of refugees, and asserts that in practice “belonging” can extend beyond the state-centric understanding of membership in South Asian states. She addresses two sets of interrelated questions: what factors determine whether refugees are relocated to their home countries in South Asia, and why do some repatriated groups re-integrate more successfully than others in “post-peace” South Asian states?
