Where hope takes root : democracy and pluralism in an interdependent world by Aga Khan( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Where Hope Takes Root, the Aga Khan sets out the principles that inform his vision. Democracy, he says, must be nurtured in ways that are practical and flexible. Pluralism must be embraced, so that it exists both in fact and in spirit. A diverse, engaged civil society will advance these values. Education is also a critical component, not only in developing countries but in the West. Until the Western world acquires a deeper knowledge of Muslim civilizations, His Highness asserts, no truly meaningful dialogue can take place." "In a world too often divided along economic, political, ethnic and religious lines, the Aga Khan's words are welcome. Eloquent, inspiring and deeply challenging, they express the hope - and the conviction - that profound change is possible."--Jacket
