Description

This book, based on the prestigious Oxford Amnesty Lecture series, investigates the relationship between globalization and human rights. The contributors come to the subject from a wide range of disciplines and perspectives, and include Noam Chomsky, Kwame Anthony Appiah, Homi Bhaba, Susan George, and Joseph Stiglitz, with introductions and commentaries by Richard Rorty, Alan Ryan, Charles Taylor and others. Their forthright and provocative essays challenge the view that the development of global markets and global investment, together with the widespread circulation of information on which this depends, make human rights abuses less likely.show more
