520    "In this major new study, Prasenjit Duara expands his 
       influential theoretical framework to present circulatory, 
       transnational histories as an alternative to nationalist 
       history. Duara argues that the present day is defined by 
       the intersection of three global changes: the rise of non-
       western powers, the crisis of environmental sustainability
       and the loss of authoritative sources of what he terms 
       transcendence - the ideals, principles and ethics once 
       found in religions or political ideologies. The physical 
       salvation of the world is becoming - and must become - the
       transcendent goal of our times, but this goal must 
       transcend national sovereignty if it is to succeed. Duara 
       suggests that a viable foundation for sustainability might
       be found in the traditions of Asia, which offer different 
       ways of understanding the relationship between the 
       personal, ecological and universal. These traditions must 
       be understood through the ways they have circulated and 
       converged with contemporary developments"--|cProvided by 
520    "In this work of historical sociology, I explore various 
       Asian social and cultural responses - actual and potential
       - to the unsustainable nature of global modernity as we 
       have known it. While the period of this study covers the 
       last hundred years or so, I range back in time to better 
       understand these responses in our present moment that is 
       characterized by three global changes: i)the rise of non-
       Western powers, ii); the loss of authoritative sources of 
       transcendence (eg Marxism or religion) and iii) the 
       looming crisis of planetary sustainability"--|cProvided by
