Description - Justice Interruptus by Nancy Fraser
Justice Interruptus diagnoses the contemporary "post-socialist" condition. Political philosopher Nancy Fraser identifies the tasks facing critical theorists and political activists in the absence of any credible vision of an alternative to the present order. Ranging from theoretical topics like the meaning of difference and the limits of anti-essentialism to practical concerns such as multiculturalism, the Clarence Thomas confirmation and the future of welfare, Fraser argues that cultural politics of "recognition" and social politics of "redistribution" need to establish common ground in new conceptions of justice.
