The book concludes with a timely reflection on the contradictory face of contemporary South Asia. Although the region has produced some of the world's most iconic leaders of non-violent protest --Mahatma Gandhi, Arundhati Roy, Mother Teresa, and Aung San Suu Kyi--severe social divisions and injustice persist in most South Asian countries. Simultaneously, extraordinary economic growth is deeply transforming South Asian societies and may enable them to rival the United States and China as the world's largest economies. Gilbert's transnational perspective illuminates how world historical processes--from changes in the environment and the economy to the movement of peoples and ideas--have shaped and continue to shape the history of South Asia and its place in the wider world."--Provided by publisher."@en ;
