Culture, Rationalisation and Secularisation

Culture, Rationalisation and Secularisation

Culture, Rationalisation and Secularisation Irfan Engineer Communal Threat, Secular Challenge by K N Panikkar; Earthworm Books, Chennai, 1997; pp 176 + xxiii, Rs 125 (paperback), K N PANIKKAR is a professor of modern history at the Centre of Historical Studies, JNU. His main research area is the cultural and intellectual history of colonial India. His contribution on the subject of communalism/ secularism is seminal and is not confined to writing atone, though that continues to be his important contribution. He has been extensively touring the country and acquainting himself with the ground realities by associating himself with the activists of various movements at the grass roots level. The book reflects the rich academic rigours as well as the experience gathered from his association with grass roots level activists. The book in this sense is not just another addition to the subject but contributes many interesting insights and missing links.
