Globalization and Militant Hindu Nationalism

Globalization and Militant Hindu Nationalism

Автор:

This book is an attempt to propose new directions for Christian theology in India in the present context of globalization and militant Hindu nationalism. In recent years, Christians have been the target of violent attacks by militant Hindu nationalists. Critically analyzing the history of Christianity and militant Hindu nationalism in India, this book contends that militant Hindu nationalism originated in the context of Western colonialism, which brought about a crisis of religious, cultural, and national identity among Hindus. Moreover, contemporary globalization is perceived as recreating “colonization-like” situations, only now at a staggering speed and on a global level.The contemporary attacks on Christians by militant Hindu nationalists must be understood within the dynamics of globalization. The Church in India needs to respond to this crisis. The author proposes that through a renewed theological initiative based on the three traditional areas of focus of Indian theology – inculturation, interreligious dialogue, and social justice — the Church can become genuinely Indian and address the crisis arising from globalization and militant Hindu nationalism.

The Lemon Table

From the hairdessing salon where an old man measures out his life in haircuts, to the concert hall where a music lover carries out an obsessive campaign against those who cough in concerts; from the woman reading elaborate recipes to her sick husband as a substitute for sex, to the woman ‘incarcerated’ in an old people’s home beginning a correspondence with an author that enriches both their lives — all Barnes’ characters, in their different ways, square up to death and rage against the dying light.

The role of HRM Practices in Successful Organizational Change

The role of HRM Practices in Successful Organizational Change

Автор:

One of the most difficult problems organizations face is dealing with change. In today’s rapidly changing, highly competitive environment, the ability to change rapidly, efficiently, and almost continually will distinguish the winners from the losers. But “what role and contribution does Human Resource Management (HRM) make to the process of change management?” This book makes the link between change and human resource practices by studying the role of Human Resource Management in managing change in three organizations in Iran. It is argued that the role of Human Resource management in managing change can be analyzed based on HRM practices which capture the degree of commitment of employees to the change process. This gives rise to the use of HRM practices such as effective communication, participation and negotiation to evoke employee’s commitment during implementation of organizational change. Three case studies illustrate alternative approaches for these HRM practices. Thus, this book should shed some light on the role of Human Resource Managers in implementing a successful organizational change.
