    NYU Press 1997; US$ 89.00

    Within Western political philosophy, the rights of groups has often been neglected or addressed in only the narrowest fashion.

Paula Sabloff challenges this conventional wisdom about who wants democracy and why. Arguing that certain universal human aspirations exist, she shows how local realities are highly particularistic... more...

  • Ethnicity and Cultural Authorityby Daniel G. Williams

    Edinburgh University Press 2005; US$ 119.40

    Writing in 1903, W. E. B. Du Bois suggested that the goal for the African-American was ?to be a co-worker in the kingdom of culture'. He was evoking ?culture? as a solution to the divisions within society, thereby adopting, in a very different context, an idea that had been influentially expressed by Matthew Arnold in the 1860s. Du Bois questioned... more...
