  4. India and Civilizational Futures: Backwaters Collective on Metaphysics and Politics Ii.Vinay Lal (ed.) - 2019 - Oxford University Press India.
    India and Civilizational Futures consists of the deliberations of the Backwaters Collective on Metaphysics and Politics, a group comprised largely of Indian scholars, academics, and writers.
