Worldwide globalization has become one of the most famous and also most important catchwords of the beginning of the third millennium. There seems to be no doubt, however, that this topic will also be very urgent in the near future, if we are willing to avoid bigger disasters and breakdowns concerning political, social, economical and, of course, ecological matters. The word
globe itself points to the problem and task of dealing with this challenge in a common alliance, discussion and cooperation. In other words, the unstoppable progress of globalizing human lifes, behaviours and surroundings calls for common answers given by people of different religions, colours and nationalities. Bringing such various meanings and feelings into dialogue and interchange is the primary concern of this book, written by scholars of different subjects from India and Austria.
