Lives in the balance: perspectives on global injustice and inequality
The chapters in this book offer a critique on nation-statism, rational capitalism, and concentration of power in the post-colonial world, by focussing our attention on the cracks in the armor of the totalizing discourses of the dominant western paradigm, and by illuminating the continuing struggles for equality and power among those who remain marginalized in the new world (dis)order.
