 DESCRIPTION
spacer
A collection of articles on social and economic issues published in Calcuttan newspapers and journals and elsewhere in India over the last fifty years. An engagement with the issues of the time emerges that allows the reader a perspective of the late twentieth century and the questions it raises for the future not only in India, not only in the "developing countries", but for every citizen of the world now and as it will be. But first and foremost the focus is on India, and West Bengal, where a Communist government has been in power for over twenty years, and where the problems of rural reconstruction and urban congestion can appear next to insoluble. The reader will meet the luminous figures of Gandhi and Tagore and Nehru as the story of independence unfolds. It is the philosophical concerns underlying that story that are laid bare, concerns that lie at the heart of civilisation and its prospects in the light of a world that is increasingly nuclear-armed, where the gap between rich and poor does not diminish and the poor continue to live diminished lives, where consumerism brings a danger in its wake that is ignored in the flush of material benefits. Professor Datta’s style is classically lucid and simple, his learning wide comprising the western and Oriental intellectual traditions and his outlook more that of a man in the street than an academic. His aim is to clarify, so that people may see for themselves the choices facing society and each member of it in India and beyond, for the next century. The following selection of his articles in English is taken from various book collections as indicated and includes a number of hitherto uncollected articles from the last decade.
