Summary
"An international compendium of essays offering ideas for a new approach to international relations and public policy, one imbued with an ethical and spiritually enriched socio-political philosophy that esteems the human spirit and dignity as central values in decision making; seeks links between self-interest and the common good; and introduces, in a practical way, philosophical, spiritual, and cultural perspectives in the political discourse on global political and socio-economic problems. Each contribution is a candle shedding a particular light on challenges of the modern world." "The contributors represent a wide spectrum of scholarship, practical experience, and cultural histories, faiths and philosophies. Professors in various disciplines as well as practitioners in politics, public policy, diplomacy, development and international business, the contributors share a sense of the importance of introducing ethical and spiritual concepts and values into the public discourse on progress and globalization issues."--Jacket
