The volume of thirty-one chapters explore the ramifications of the discourse of globalization and transnationalism that extend and cut deeper into areas that are not always readily obvious or given, such as diaspora, ecology and gender — and even yoga and spirituality. But also, of course, there are different interpretations possible of the same social or global phenomenon. Hence. the array of distinguished authors commissioned or invited to contribute their thoughts on the subject matter at hand to this volume bring amultitude of perspectives to the phenomena under examination. The rather accessible discussions which otherwise could have been assembled in something of a scrambled open-book are here carefully organized around five clusters. These are:Globalization. Ecology and Duty of Care: Transnationalism. and Transformations of Identity: Australia and India: Uneasy Relations and Mutual Impacts: Life-Worlds: Gender. Ethnicity and Constructions: Engaging Psycho-Analytic Tropes from Indian Yogic Perspectives. The volume finishes by taking a peep into 'The Human Future: Engagements and Reflections'. 
The volume in whole or in parts therein should be of interest to those interested in the issues canvassed under the aforementioned categories. and more generally have some desire to explore in a broader cross-cultural context certain fundamental and sustainable issues of civil rights, diaspora as a transnational phenomenon (and issues therein), moral responsibilities towards non-human expanding moral spheres,and the challenges of class and gender in a rapidly globalizing world under the gaze of modernity's vanishing future.
