Culture and Rights : Anthropological Perspectives, Paperback / softback Book

Culture and Rights : Anthropological Perspectives Paperback / softback

Edited by Jane K. Cowan, Marie-Benedicte Dembour, Richard Ashby Wilson


Do people everywhere have the same, or even compatible, ideas about multiculturalism, indigenous rights or women's rights?

The authors of this book move beyond the traditional terms of the universalism versus cultural relativism debate.

Through detailed case-studies from around the world (Hawaii, France, Thailand, Botswana, Greece, Nepal and Canada) they explore the concrete effects of rights talk and rights institutions on people's lives.
