Parapolitics: Towards the City of Man. Raghavan N. This is a solid and informative book on Gandhi. Iyer analyzed the key ideas of the Mahatma, like satyagraha (soul-force) and ahimsa (non-violence), in great detail. His mainly descriptive writing style can be hypnoyizing in some parts.

Political scientist Iyer (Univ. This bifurcation is the root of Iyer's one-sided abstractions. of Ca. Santa Barbara), a member of the Club of Rome group of doomsayers, chooses the eclectic, widely-read approach to get across his message that we'll all need to be nice to each other. Drawing inspiration from sources as divergent as Plato and Gandhi, Iyer develops a political ""paradigm"" based on the values of civility, tolerance, self-transcendence, and the relation between humane ends and humane means.

The term parapolitics was first used by Professor Raghavan Iyer of Oxford University in his 1979 work Parapolitics: Toward the City of Man. It proposes a more all-encompassing conception than that of the traditional politics of stability, power and self-preservation. In Iyer's conception, parapolitics is best understood as the activity of continually rethinking the foundations as well as the frontiers of political principles, systems and issues. In this sense, the ‘parapolitical’ transcends conventional politics while still being reflected in it.

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.
