When seriously ill, what contributes to a sense of being truly cared for and respected? This compelling book explores healthcare inequalities by listening closely to Black and Latina women with breast cancer. It puts their stories into conversation with current healthcare statistics, sharp theological imagination, healthcare providers, and social ethics. Vigen contends that ethicists, healthcare providers, and scholars arrive at an adequate understanding of human dignity and personhood only when they take seriously the experiences and needs of those most vulnerable due to systemic inequalities.

Transforming World Politics by Anna M. Agathangelou Transforming World Politics, Paperback (May 2009)

Presents a critical understanding of contemporary world politics by arguing that the neoliberal approach to international relations seduces many of us into investing our lives in projects of power and alienation. This work intertwines non-Western and Western traditions by drawing on Marxist, postcolonial, feminist and critical security approaches.

Global Political Economy of Sex by Anna M. Agathangelou Global Political Economy of Sex, Paperback (June 2007)

Examines the movement of domestic and sex workers to Cyprus, Greece, and Turkey and demonstrates that gender, race (ethnicity), and nationality are crucial elements in the constitution of the desire economies which are informed by the dominant neoliberal understanding of globalization and its neocolonial logic.
