In the background of the withering of communism and the imminent collapse of capitalism, time is ripe for exploring a more universally acceptable ‘Third Way’. Several leading thinkers like Peter Drucker and Paul Samuelson have – though guardedly – predicted that capitalism in its present form may not survive beyond the first quarter of the next century. However, the collapse of these systems cannot automatically usher in a superior world-order. Evolving a ‘Third Way’ desiderates a vast amount of preparatory work at both the intellectual and organizational levels. To pave the way for such exploration is the purpose of the essays and lectures compiles in this volume.

From the early 1970s, there has been widespread disillusionment about the paradigms of development which had been dominant since the Second World War. Many leading thinkers - both in the East and in the West - have been exploring alternatives to the West-originated concepts of progress and to the trading systems and practices derived from those concepts. It has become increasingly apparent that the current global trading regime and the prevalent resource-use policies are but modern-day incarnations of colonialism which ravaged most of the world in earlier centuries. At the ideological level, communism is now defunct, while capitalism is terminally ill.

Time is thus opportune for projecting a more humane, non-exploitative, and holistic and spiritually elevating 'Third Way'. The heritage of Hinduism and especially the all-comprehensive concept of Dharma provide guidelines for reorienting the political, economic and social life. In the present book Dattopant Thengadi, an outstanding thinker, critically analyses the present state of the world and presents the Hindu approach to economics, technology, environment, and constitutional and legal systems. He forcefully argues for modernization without westernization, and lucidly articulates the inevitability of Swadeshi for national reconstruction. Third Way is a timely and path-breaking work.
