This intriguing book's focus on post-material consciousness, so far undeveloped in American literature, offers a fresh perspective on the human condition and its social development as a vehicle of global welfare. Mohan contends that post-modern societies, despite their affluence and the "superpower thaw," remain in a state of flux, and that the traditional approaches on the Left and Right have failed to present a viable program for peace, development, and prosperity. Premised on the notion of humanities "one-ness," this book unravels the paradoxes of diversity and offers a rational, humane basis for a dignified existance of the human race beyond the ossified structures of conceptual boundaries and organizational morass.
