Beschreibung

All populations, including people living in the United States experience new vulnerabilities with globalization. Peoples' jobs are threatened; there are pressures to migrate; and environmental degradation is epidemic. Immense wealth is concentrated in the hands of a tiny elite. Other countries have revised their constitutions to protect their citizens from these turbulent forces. The US is a major exception, and this book proposes how Americans might think about constitutional revisions.

Portrait

Judith Blau is professor of sociology at the University of North Carolina, and is chair of the interdisciplinary program in Social and Economic Justice. While she has worked in various specialties within sociology, her interests now focus on how to expand sociological queries about human rights, justice, cultural diversity, and equity. She is president of the U.S. Chapter of Sociologists without Borders, and co-editor (with Alberto Moncada) of Without Borders, and former editor of Social Forces. Alberto Moncada is President of Sociologists without Borders. He has been professor at the University of Madrid, Stanford, and elsewhere, and has been a consultant for UNESCO, the European Council, and the Organization of American States. His many books (in Spanish) cover a great variety of areas: Latinos in the US, media, education, culture and the arts, sexuality, Spanish politics, and religion.

Pressestimmen

Recommended. CHOICE This book elucidates the gap that has emerged between the growing global force of human rights and its restricted representation in American thought and institutions. Blau and Moncada make clear why in an increasingly interdependent world, embracing an expanded and globalized sensitivity to human rights is essential to our own well-being. -- John Hagan, John D. MacArthur Professor of Sociology and Law, Northwestern University
