Rethinking choices

The volume explores the options civil society and the individual have within today's political culture, offering a strong critique of the prevailing model of modernity in developed countries - one that is being exported and imposed on the rest of the world. The need to rethink choices made on a day-to-day basis -- the ways we use our time, our family lives, the sorts of goods and services we consume, and the quality of democracy that we are able to exercise makes the core of the volume. The solution, says Ginsborg, lies in our own hands.The Politics of Everyday Life

Goa, located on the west coast of India, is renowned for its scenic charm, its beaches, and the architectural splendour of its temples, churches and old houses. This collection of essays, poems, stories and extracts from published works that bring to life both the natural beauty and the changing social and political ethos of India's smallest state. Find here a vivid take, from Mario Cabral e Sa's delightful take on the earliest Portuguese women to come to India to Gita Mehta's description of hippies at Calangute, from Alexander Frater's mesmerising account of Goa in the monsoon to Manohar Malgonkar's ode to the Mangeshi temple.Reflected in Water
