Interreligious dialogue that strives for both hospitality and honest discussion of difference! Is it possible to have both? Is it possible for religious traditions to engage one another in a spirit of humility, while also working together toward mutual descriptions of God and the world? This is the goal of this book, to find points at which each of the religious traditions are vulnerable and open enough to listen to each other and to help each other toward a shared description of reality. If you share these concerns—concerns for interfaith dialogue as well as for deeply held notions of conviction and truth—then the invitation is open for mutual constructive engagement.

"This is History Book. It explored the grand scheme of world history as a product of real-life human beings pursuing their individual and collective interests. It also offered a global perspective on the past by focusing on both the distinctive characteristics ofindividual societies and the connections that have linked the fortunes of diff erent societies. It has combined a clear chronological framework with the twin themes of traditions and encounters, which help to make the unwieldy story of world history both more manageable and more engaging. From the beginning, Traditions & Encounters off ered an inclusive vision of the global past-one that is meaningful and appropriate for the interdependent world of contemporary times"--

"Developed/underdeveloped, " "first world/third world, " "modern/traditional" - although there is nothing inevitable, natural, or arguably even useful about such divisions, they are widely accepted as legitimate ways to categorize regions and peoples of the world. In Imperial Encounters, Roxanne Lynn Doty looks at the way these kinds of labels influence North-South relations, reflecting a history of colonialism and shaping the way national identity is constructed today. Employing a critical, poststructuralist perspective, Doty examines two "imperial encounters" over time: between the United States and the Philippines and between Great Britain and Kenya. The history of these two relationships demonstrates that not only is the more powerful member allowed to construct "reality, " but this construction of reality bears an important relationship to actual practice. Doty considers the persistence of representational practices, particularly with regard to Northern views of human rights in the South and contemporary social science discourses on North-South relations. Important and timely, Imperial Encounters brings a fresh perspective to the debate over the past - and the future - of global politics.
