This book proposes a New Enlightenment - a new way of looking at the non-Western world. Breaking new ground, the essays chart a course beyond Eurocentric discourses (which completely ignore the contributions of Asia, Africa and Latin-America) and forms of nativism (which are usually ethnocentric discourses).

The volume:

Focuses on the historical aspects of knowledge-production and its colonization;

Examines the genre of multilinear histories that displaces hegemonic Eurocentric discourses;

Enlarges the scope of multilinear historicism whereby Asia, Europe, Africa and the Americas are drawn in a new humanistic knowledge system;

Studies how colonization is resisted in both the non-Western and Western world.

Lucid and engaging, this book will be of great interest to scholars and researchers of social theory, education, politics and public policy.
