What Justice? Whose Justice? by Susan Eckstein

Book Description

The new millennium began with the triumph of democracy and markets. But for whom is life just, how so, and why? And what is being done to correct persisting injustices? Blending macro-level global and national analysis with in-depth grassroots detail, the contributors highlight roots of injustices, how they are perceived, and efforts to alleviate them. Following up on issues raised in the groundbreaking best-seller "Power and Popular Protest: Latin American Social Movements" (California, 2001), these essays elucidate how conceptions of justice are socially constructed and contested and historically contingent, shaped by people's values and institutionally grounded in real-life experiences. The contributors, a stellar coterie of North and Latin American scholars, offer refreshing new insights that deepen our understanding of social justice as ideology and practice.

Books By Author Susan Eckstein

Immigrant Divide by Susan Eckstein Immigrant Divide, Paperback (June 2009)

Offers an analysis of Cuban immigrants' social, cultural, economic, and political adaptation, and their transformation of Miami into the 'northern most Latin American city'. This book provides a fresh insight into the lives of Cuban immigrants, into Cuba in the post Soviet era, and into how Washington's failed Cuba policy might be improved.

Power and Popular Protest by Susan Eckstein Power and Popular Protest, Paperback (May 2001)

Features essays that present a range of subjects on the cause and consequence of protest movements in Latin America, from an examination of the varying faces but common origins of rural guerilla movements, to a discussion of multiclass protests, to an essay on las madres de plaza de mayo.

Back from the Future by Susan Eckstein Back from the Future, Paperback (July 1995)

This text describes how and explains why Cuban Communism has been misperceived and misunderstood abroad. The book argues that not only has Castro's Cuba been less ideologically driven by Marxist-Leninist orthodoxy than has been believed, it has also been less omnipotent.
