Inhaltsangabe: Prasenjit Duara explores the idea that the process of modernisation has resulted in an overreach in our conquest of nature, leading to a crisis of sustainability. Drawing on historical sociology and circulatory histories, and through a rich engagement with transcendent Asian traditions, Duara seeks answers to the challenges accompanying global modernity.

Rezension: 'Modernity in its Western guise has generated a degraded, unsustainable world. To find the basis for a more viable, 'post-Western modernity', Duara maintains that we must look beyond this tradition. Drawing on a capacious command of Asian history and society, Duara probes the region's older philosophies to offer a vision that might nurture a truly global commons. This is work that is ambitious in the best possible sense.' Jean Comaroff, Harvard University, Massachusetts

'Duara's opus is both timely and important. By re-vitalizing ancient Asian traditions which also emphasize sustainability, we can develop a stronger global consensus to protect our global commons. Duara's magnificent book will do the world a great service.' Kishore Mabhubani, National University of Singapore

'Incisive and inspiring ? Duara draws on his deep knowledge of China and other Asian philosophical traditions. He locates rich dialogical resources for alternative modes of human flourishing. This book is a profound challenge to received models of modernity.' Kenneth Dean, McGill University, Montréal

'Ranging across history, religion, politics and ethics as they have appeared in multiple traditions, Duara draws out implications of our now-global quest for 'modernity' and 'development' for environmental sustainability. This is a provocative intervention in some of the most fundamental issues of our times.' Kenneth Pomeranz, University of Chicago

'The intersection of the personal, the ecological, and the universal is a key vector in Prasenjit Duara's disentangling of what it will take to achieve the 'physical salvation' of our world. This is a brilliant text; it contributes to the methodological understanding of our period.' Saskia Sassen, Columbia University, author of Expulsions

'The perspective of The Crisis of Global Modernity is thus post-secular and post-national: Duara recognizes that the climate crisis has indeed changed everything and that it is futile to attempt to engage with it through the 19th and 20th century frameworks of economy and governance that created it in the first place.' Amitav Ghosh,
