Caging the Lion

Cross-Cultural Fictions


Bruce E. Fleming

One of the greatest challenges facing Western society today is that of coming to terms with societies other than our own. Caging the Lion summarizes the current contradictions surrounding this challenge, considers the ways in which the West expresses its uneasy relationship with the world outside, and offers some clarity regarding a troubling topic. Fleming suggests that neither the right nor the left is able to solve this problem alone. He proposes that the time has come to put polemics aside in favor of a common-sense approach.
