Mount Union Professor to Publish Eleventh Book
April 27, 2010
Dr. Santosh Saha, professor of history at Mount Union College, has been doing research for his newest book in four years.
Inspired by Africa's positive social movement for national integration, 'Ethnicity and Socio-Political Change in Africa and Other Developing Countries: A Constructive Discourse in State Building' is the most recent of four books Saha has written on the topic of ethnicity.
'It is a deep pleasure to write books in collaboration with scholars and use new knowledge for classroom teaching,' said Saha of his ten previous books.
Saha received bachelor's degrees from Calcutta University in India and The University of London. He earned an LL.B degree from Calcutta University Law College and a master's degree also from Calcutta University. He earned a Ph.D. from Kent State University. Before coming to Mount Union, he taught history in India, Ethiopia, Zambia and Liberia.
Saha, who has taught at Mount Union since 1994, teaches courses in western civilization, Asian civilization, and problems of developing Nations, among others.
Saha has published ten books, all relating to the disciplines of history, religion and culture, including "The Politics of Ethnicity and the National Politics" and "Religious Fundamentalism in the Contemporary World: Critical Social and Political Issues."
