Death of an Elephant is an allegory of existence. Pran Dubey, a professor failed by avowed social institutions, is a conflicted man torn apart by his strife and Diaspora neurosis in the ambiguities of past and present, tradition and modernity, and life and death.
The author explores a nexus of varied abstract issues and protean realities that relates to social justice. It's counter-factual to think of a world without a social problem. The author -- based on his half-a-century of experience, deep insight, and vast knowledge -- thinks otherwise.
“Mohan has provided an antidote to the embedded romanticism of patronizing efforts to save the poor from themselves. Remarkably, this book is argued with a credible, erudite humanism and a pervasive decency” -- William M. Epstein, Professor, University of Nevada, Las Vegas
Brij Mohan was the founding Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Comparative Social Welfare, now published as the Journal of International and Comparative Social Policy.

Vol. 26, Issues 2-3 contained special essays in honor of Dr. Mohan.
