Culture and Rights by Jane K. Cowan
Book DescriptionDo people everywhere have the same, or even compatible, ideas about multiculturalism, indigenous rights or women's rights? The authors of this book move beyond the traditional terms of the universalism versus cultural relativism debate. Through detailed case-studies from around the world (Hawaii, France, Thailand, Botswana, Greece, Nepal and Canada) they explore the concrete effects of rights talk and rights institutions on people's lives.

Dance and the Body Politic in Northern Greece, Paperback (September 1990)» View all books by Jane K. Cowan
Valued for their sensual and social intensity, Greek dance-events are often also problematical for participants, giving rise to struggles over position, prestige, and reputation. This book explores how the politics of gender is articulated through the body at these culturally central celebrations in a class-divided northern Greek town.
