The Remaking of Social Contracts: Feminists in a Fierce New World

In The Remaking of Social Contracts, leading thinkers and activists address a wide range of concerns - global economic governance, militarism ecological tipping points, the nation state, movement building, sexuality and reproduction and religious fundamentalism. These themes are of wideranging importance for the survival and wellbeing of us all, and reflect the many dimensions and inter-connectedness of our lives. Using feminist lenses, the book puts forward a holistic and radical understanding of the synergies, tensions and contradictionsbetween social movements and global, regional and local power structures and processes, and it points to other alternatives and possibilities for this fierce new world.
