Verso, 2007 - Political Science - 447 pages
This is the third volume of the series Reinventing Social Emancipation: Towards New Manifestoes series. Another Knowledge is Possible explores the struggles against moral and cultural imperialism and neoliberal globalization that have taken place over the past few decades, and the alternatives that have emerged in countries throughout the developing world from Brazil and Colombia, to India, South Africa and Mozambique. In particular it looks at the issue of biodiversity, the confrontation between scientific and non- scientific knowledges, and the increasing difficulty experienced by great numbers of people in accessing information and scientific- technological knowledge.
