Waiting for minimum critic reviews


This book explores some of the key debates connected with equality and identity in the context of increasing globalization. The contributors acknowledge that the economic, cultural, psychological and political dimensions of globalization are each distinctively important but argue that issues of cultural recognition must always be considered alongside issues of economic distribution. Among the topics discussed are the integration of immigrant populations into the structures of state and civil society; the tension between claims of citizenship and the demands of identity; children's rights and child labor in a global context; and aspects of gender and civil society.
