'Ethics of Inclusion and Equality', in two volumes, is a reader of 58 articles from the author on all areas of social and political life. Vol. 1 features articles on the themes of ‘Politics and Society'; Vol. 2 includes the authors insight on ‘Economy and Environment', ‘Education, Children and Sexuality', and ‘Religion and Tolerance'. Each Section underpins India's political economy, where India is taken as a referral point for analysis and interpretation. The literature reflects a trend sweeping the world as of 2018: the success of far-right conservative politics as a reaction to liberal appeasement politics, identity politics and the rejection of multiculturalism. The author address these issues in a direct, often devastating, fashion.

Abstract:
L'auteur étudie en premier lieu l'organisation de l'Église maronite du Liban, et cherche à démontrer l'incidence de celle-ci sur la construction de l'État libanais. Cette visée méthodologique l'induit ensuite à remonter à l'origine de l'Église maronite dès le Ve siècle en Syrie, puis enfin à s'intéresser à son développement dans la Montagne libanaise jusqu'en 1920. La thèse centrale soutenue est que cette période de l'histoire est à même d'éclairer le Liban d'aujourd'hui, comme elle l'a fait de manière exemplaire jusqu'au Pacte National de 1943. C'est dans ce Moyen-Orient, composé d'une forte prédominance du religieux dans les rapports entre groupes que le Liban prend forme, avec ses réalités géopolitiques et ses enjeux stratégiques. Afin de réaliser cette recherche, l'auteur a effectué de nombreux voyages au Liban, parcourant celui-ci en bus, ou à pied par exemple dans la Qadisha - la Vallée Sainte - difficilement accessible au sein de la Montagne chrétienne.

Abstract: 

"Sustainable Development" is the goal 2015-2030 of the global community of states, adopted by the United Nations. This book shows how ecology, economy and ethics are all needed to reach these goals. Understanding a concept like ‘sustainability' requires an understanding not only of what we are seeking to ‘sustain', but also how man's activities and needs are implicated in and can threaten the future of these biological systems. The articles in this book come from one of the key countries of the world, India, whose population represents almost 20% of the world's population. Questions surrounding economic development and environmental sustainability are fundamental to understanding the country's future, and how it will tackle difficult issues, like the eradication of poverty.
