This collection differs from other anthologies on equality and inclusion and thus diametrically opposes inequality and exclusion with its major focus on applied issues. By incorporating case studies, facts and figures that candidly show the relation between questions of equality and issues concerning poverty, hunger, homelessness, unemployment, caste, class, race, gender, exclusion, inequality and host of others within and between the countries. This anthology demonstrates that there is indeed a relationship between theoretical discussions of equality and the central socio-economic, politicocultural and religious problems facing India and the world at large to-day.
Values Create Value: Impact through Values-driven Entrepreneurship
This piece of work focuses on the role of the church in sustainable development. The church is a major player because of the big numbers that constitute her institution. She has an everyday opportunity, and over binding responsibility to fulfill her ministry mandate. The church is one of the front line players in development, and her place is vital because she is supposed to engage a holistic role in development, more than any other player does. The author looks at development from a divine perspective, and expects all developers, to integrate the biblical teaching so that it can make meaning theologically and ecologically to sustain holistic development.

Empathy and Indifference: Philosophical Reflections on Schizophrenia
The professional application of ethics often lacks the necessary conceptual tools to construct adequate theoretical foundations that can be used for practical enterprise. This book focuses on an anthropological approach to mental illness, describing how schizophrenia can distort one's experience of empathy and of the presence in the world through pathological indifference. It describes factual and phenomenological perspectives on a case of schizophrenia, based on the method of Eugène Minkowski.
Le rôle de l'Église maronite dans la construction du Liban
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.
The Struggle for Women Empowerment Through Education
Women are subjected to all kinds of violence, such as rape, forced marriage, forced identity, dependence, and a lack of freedom of expression, giving rise to the status of women as second-class citizens. Despite this gloomy picture, women across cultures agree that this denigration can only be stopped and reversed if those who are victims are educated so that they can discuss the problems, proper solutions, and see to their implementation. Many female authors write about the trauma that women undergo and the various ways in which women are marginalized in a male-dominated society. This thesis is based on novels by two female authors, Second Class Citizen (1974) by Buchi Emecheta from Ibuzo, Nigeria, and Das verborgene Wort (2001) by Ulla Hahn from Kirchhundem, Sauerland, Germany. It critically discusses the subjugation of women and violence against them through the prism of the novels' main characters.
