The South Asian Sensibility PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The South Asian Sensibility free pdf "The Southasian Sensibility: A Himal Reader" is a collection of representative, seminal articles published over the past 25 years in "Himal Southasian", Southasia's first and foremost regional news and analysis magazine. The essays are fine examples of long-form journalism, a format that Himal has pioneered in the Subcontinent. Marking the quarter century of the magazine, the "Himal Reader" argues for a regional mindset when tackling issues that touch the people of the Subcontinent. The focus throughout is for a humanist and progressive viewpoint, with a strong emphasis on human rights, democracy and social justice. The selected articles, whether discussing nationalism, regionalism, insurgency or cultural transformation, all reflect one aspect that "Himal" has striven to promote throughout its existence: a perspective that views the entire Southasian region as a single, composite entity even while respecting the plurality and integrity of its component parts.
