Item Description: University of California Press, 1999. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: "Bridging Divides is an exhilarating ethnography which uses its main research object--the Tunnel that now both connects and separates England and France--to open up a rich analytical window through which we can "see" such diverse themes as law and landscape, political and spatial relations, national identity and cultural hybridity, nation-state sovereignty and the European Union, transnationalism and neonationalism. Darian-Smith's sophisticated analysis will show the new generation of social scientists how far a creative methodology can take us in understanding our societies."--Boaventura de Sousa Santos, University of Wisconsin, Madison"Darian-Smith literally and figuratively ventures into new territory in this perceptive book. Visually sensitive and politically perceptive, she inspects everything from law to gardens as she explores the variable and metaphoric placement of cultural meanings in objects and practices. A bold experiment that addresses the way national identities and boundaries are being reconfigured and revised today."--Sally Falk Moore, Harvard University"Eve Darian-Smith takes the building of the cross-channel tunnel between England and France as an occasion to rethink the constitution of nationalism and national identity. Theoretically rich and empirically rigorous, "Bridging Divides is a model of interdisciplinary legal scholarship and a must read for anyone wanting a glimpse over the horizon at cutting-edge research.--Austin Sarat, Amherst College.

Item Description: Wiley-Blackwell, 2004. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: ".stimulating, and replete with insights.no serious scholar of international relations can afford to miss it." Political Science Quarterly "This book's innovations include its systematic engagement with the works of Third World intellectuals, its rigorous conceptualization of Euro-Americanism, and a creative recovery of Gramscian Marxism; these features help to ground a very powerful framework for the post-colonial. This book is the product of a tremendous intellectual maturity and sophistication . the author engages and reworks, with great mastery and success, the best theories of our time." Arturo Escobar, University of North Carolina "This singular text challenges the "common sense" view of contemporary world power in an eminently sensible and sensitive manner. Written with admirable and unfashionable clarity . it provides a constantly suggestive tour d'horizon of the state of global geopolitics at the start of the millennium." James Dunkerley, Institute of Latin American Studies, University of London "This book is part of the best tradition of research which, particularly since the 1990s, has been showing that a proper understanding of the world is necessarily much larger than a Western understanding of the world . Slater formulates a new critical theory that is adequate to the realities and possibilities created by the global times in which we live, and fully capable of accounting for the metamorphoses of the growing inequalities between North and South." Boaventura de Sousa Santos, University of Coimbra and University of Wisconsin-Madison ". the book has many positive aspects to be stressed. It is especially strong on the history and present condition of American imperial hegemony and clearly draws on a wide and detailed knowledge of the Latin American scene." Progress in Deveopment Studies "Geopolitics and the Post-Colonial is a rich contribution to the analysis of the imperialist geopolitics of North-South relations inherent in contemporary processes of political and economic globalization." Annals of the Association of American Geographers"It is specifically the reflexive and open-minded way in which Slater analyses post-colonial thinking in relation to geopolitics that makes this a very inspiring work."

Item Description: Stanford University Press, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 226 x 148 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. We live in a time when the most appalling social injustices and unjust human sufferings no longer seem to generate the moral indignation and the political will needed both to combat them effectively and to create a more just and fair society. If God Were a Human Rights Activist aims to strengthen the organization and the determination of all those who have not given up the struggle for a better society, and specifically those that have done so under the banner of human rights. It discusses the challenges to human rights arising from religious movements and political theologies that claim the presence of religion in the public sphere. Increasingly globalized, such movements and the theologies sustaining them promote discourses of human dignity that rival, and often contradict, the one underlying secular human rights. Conventional or hegemonic human rights thinking lacks the necessary theoretical and analytical tools to position itself in relation to such movements and theologies; even worse, it does not understand the importance of doing so. It applies the same abstract recipe across the board, hoping that thereby the nature of alternative discourses and ideologies will be reduced to local specificities with no impact on the universal canon of human rights. As this strategy proves increasingly lacking, this book aims to demonstrate that only a counter-hegemonic conception of human rights can adequately face such challenges.

Este libro fue escrito para responder al desafío de entender la crisis financiera coyuntural y de corta duración que Portugal vive, y de analizarla a la luz de otras crisis estructurales y de más larga duración, algunas específicas del país, otras que engloban a Europa y otras también al mundo en su totalidad. Lejos de ser un desafío de comprensión contemplativa, se trató de comprender para proponer alternativas al pensamiento único neoliberal que hoy domina en Europa más que en ninguna parte del mundo.

Item Description: Hurst, 2014. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: "S. Sayyid has written a highly insightful exploration of Muslim identity ("the ummah") in the modern world. Unlike many who have pontificated on Islam and Muslims, Sayyid is very well informed on Islamicate and European history, and has an impressive command of contemporary critical theory. The result is an excellent book." - Talal Asad, Graduate Center of the City University of New York "To my knowledge, this is the best attempt at decolonising the Muslim mind and politics. But it is much more than that. It is a complex and powerful rendering of a Muslim contribution to a new non-liberal cosmopolitanism., and should be read by all."- Boaventura de Sousa Santos, Professor of Sociology at the University of Coimbra and University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Item Description: Stanford University Press, United States, 2005. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 226 x 152 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. This volume explores the complex relationships among universities, states, and markets throughout the Americas in light of the growing influence of globalization. It offers a biting critique of neoliberal globalization and its anti-democratic elements. In seeking to challenge the hegemony of neoliberal globalization, the authors highlight the ways in which corporate capitalism, academic capitalism, and increased militarization - both in the form of terrorism and in the international war against terrorism - are directing societies and institutions. Throughout this volume, the contributors - led by Noam Chomsky, Boaventura de Sousa Santos, Raymond Morrow, Sheila Slaughter, and Atilio Boron - argue that neoliberal globalization has changed the context for academic work, research and development, science, and social responsibility at universities. They examine issues of access and social mobility, and argue that the recent push toward privatization limits the democratic and emancipatory possibilities of universities. Finally, the book explores various forms of resistance and discusses globalization in terms of social movements and global human rights.
