In From the Margins of Globalization, Neve Gordon assembles work from leading intellectuals and activists in the field of human rights. Each essay in this volume discusses a community or issue left adrift in the wake of global capitalism. Whether it's Mohammad Khatami writing on the United Nations and its role after 9/11 or Etienne Balibar thinking through universalism, racism, and sexism this book comprises a core challenge to human rights by focusing on what lies beyond the margins of a world in constant flux.
