The Southasian Sensibility: A Himal Reader (Hardback)Kanak Mani Dixit (editor)
- We can order this
Marking the quarter century of the magazine, the Himal Reader argues for a regional mindset when tackling issues that touch the people of the Subcontinent. The focus throughout is for a humanist and progressive viewpoint, with a strong emphasis on human rights, democracy and social justice. The selected articles, whether discussing nationalism, regionalism, insurgency or cultural transformation, all reflect one aspect that Himal has striven to promote throughout its existence: a perspective that views the entire Southasian region as a single, composite entity even while respecting the plurality and integrity of its component parts.

The best of Himal... a good reader to dip into...what strikes one the most while going through the book is the relevance of these essays to our times, the realities they present to the reader impact our politics, society and culture some 15-20 years later.-- Frontline, 25 January 2013
