The last few decades have witnessed a shift towards a more balanced view in political theory and social science, one that acknowledges the cultural dimension of politics and the political dimension of culture. The essays in this volume reflect this shift by bringing together a number of interrelated themes of the multicultural perspective. Philosophers, historians, anthropologists, and political scientists from India, Canada, Europe, and Africa wrestle with the dilemmas within multiculturalism and explore the resouces within liberalism, republicanism, and democratic theory to resolve them.
