Globalisation, Human Rights and Labour Law in Pacific Asia by Anthony Woodiwiss
Book DescriptionAnthony Woodiwiss's pathbreaking book was the first substantive contribution to a sociology of human rights. In it, he takes up the question of whether so-called Asian values are compatible with human rights discourse and argues against human rights issues being the major obstacle to East-West co-operation. Dr Woodiwiss's sociological and post-structuralist approach to the concept of rights, and his incorporation of the transnational dimension into sociological theory, enable him to demonstrate how the global human rights regime can accommodate Asian patriarchalism, while Pacific Asia is itself adapting by means of what he calls 'enforceable benevolence'. His studies of Hong Kong, the Philippines, Malaysia, and Singapore highlight similarities between Pacific-Asian and Western societies and offer a positive view of the social forces obtaining in these territories.

Books By Author Anthony Woodiwiss
Scoping the Social, Paperback (December 2005)
Social theory is central to the disciplines of sociology, cultural studies, criminology, and media studies. Treating theory as a variety of visual work, and with the help of diagrams and quotations, this book provides an introduction to different ways of practicing social theory. It is for students and researchers in sociology and related fields.
Human Rights, Hardback (February 2005)
Are human rights part of the problem or part of the solution in the current 'clash of civilisations'? Drawing on a hitherto neglected body of work in classical social theory, and combining it with ideas derived from Barrington Moore, Norbert Elias and Michel Foucault, Woodiwiss poses and answers the questions.
Making Human Rights Work Globally, Paperback (June 2003)
Torture against dissidents, the absence of voting rights in many countries and a host of other crimes would lead many to believe that the world has no human rights legislation. Anthony Woodiwiss explores how human rights can be made to work more effectively in all parts of the world.
Postmodernity USA, Paperback (March 1993)» View all books by Anthony Woodiwiss
Anthony Woodiwiss re-examines the political, economic and social life of the United States over the past 60 years. The result is both a novel history of post-war America and a significant contribution to the idea of postmodernism as a social and cultural form.
