This book is unique in structure and style. The conversational mode presents a lively content ... and this slender volume has gone beyond expectations to present Parekh's life and thought coherently, for which Jahanbegloo must be congratulated.
This book is an interesting interaction between an Iranian and an Indian; both humanists, secularists, highly educated and vastly informed ... This book ought to be made required reading in every Indian university.
