The destruction of the Babri Masjid at Ayodhya in
December 1992 was a watershed in the politics of
independent India. It was also an apocalyptic turning-
point for community life at Ayodhya, and for the highly
interdependent cultural lives of Hindus and Muslims
living there. This book narrates how Ayodhya-s
inhabitants experienced the events that led up to and
followed the destruction of the mosque.

that is to say, without an analysis of their firms and

Dangerous climate change is coming. Some people still deny
that it is happening. Others refuse to recognize that it
is now too late to prevent it. But both these reactions
spring from the same source: our pathological attachment
to progress, of which sustainability has been one more
version. This book traces that attachment to its roots in
the ways we make sense of ourselves. Original and
accessible, this is philosophy on the edge, written for
anyone who glimpses our environmental tragedy and cares
about our future.

Game theory is central to understanding human behavior
and relevant to all of the behavioral sciences-from
biology and economics, to anthropology and political
science. However, as this book demonstrates, game theory
alone cannot fully explain human behavior and should
instead complement other key concepts championed by the
behavioral disciplines. The author shows that just as
game theory without broader social theory is merely
technical bravado, so social theory without game theory
is a handicapped enterprise.
