Synopsis: What is living and what is dead in contemporary political ideas, traditional beliefs and inherited allegiances? How may a better future be constructed from our complex past? Considering such questions, Parapolitics unveils a radical new perspective extending far beyond the pessimism of the current predicament. Raghavan Iyer moves with ease from the Greek polis to the California communes, from the psychology of self-actualization to the dynamics of social structures. He shows the critical distance needed to see clearly the costs of commitment, the limits and possibilities, in a global community. The book explores the subtle relationships between technology and politics, democracy and liberty, scarcity and abundance. Parapolitics calls for audacious diversity and dialectical skill in the responsible exercise of will and imagination. By distilling the ideas of seminal political thinkers from Socrates and Plato to Marx and Gandhi, the book provides a firm basis for a fresh vision of Civitas Humana - the City of Man.

About the Author: Raghavan Iyer (1930 - 1995) was a Professor of Political Science at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Educated in Bombay and at Oxford, he was a Rhodes Scholar and Founder of the Oxford Union. He taught political philosophy at Oxford for eight years and was a Visiting Professor at the Universities of Oslo, Ghana and Chicago. He was a Consultant to the Fund for the Republic and a member of the Club of Rome and the Reform Club. He was Founder of the Institute of World Culture and The Maitreya Academy.

Raghavan Iyer's other publications include:
The Moral and Political Thought of Mahatma Gandhi
The Society of the Future
Novus Ordo Seclorum: America and the Global Community Towards the Year 2000
Utilitarianism and All That: The Political Theory of British Imperialism
The Glass Curtain
The Jewel in the Lotus
