Grassroots Post-Modernism: Remaking the Soil of Cultures
Palgrave Macmillan, Aug 15, 1998 - Business & Economics - 223 pages
This remarkable book draws its inspiration from what its authors describe as the post-modern epic now unfolding at the grassroots. It portrays the ways in which the world’s social majorities are now escaping from the monoculture of a single global civilization and regenerating their own cultural and natural spaces. In so doing, they are challenging the three sacred cows of modernity--the idea, entrenched in globalization, that there is only one, universally valid way of understanding social reality; the exclusive and general validity of Western-defined notions of human; and the notion of the self-sufficient individual, as opposed to people-in-community, which has grotesquely transformed how we see the human condition. This is quite simply, a book which will transform how one sees the world--North and South.

Review: Grassroots Post-Modernism: Remaking the Soil of CulturesUser Review - Nic Paget-Clarke - Goodreads
For me, personally, this book was very significant. It has helped me understand, interpret, turn upside down so many concepts and even historical processes and events which we have been taught to take for granted as one way when they are in fact another. Read full review
