1 Way 2 C the World : Writings 1984-2006 Paperback

Description

Marilyn Waring is a truly absorbing figure known as a distinguished public intellectual, a leading feminist thinker, environmentalist, social justice activist, and for her early political career after election to New Zealand's parliament at age twenty-three.

Assembling some of her most thought-provoking writings, 1 Way 2 C the World is a compelling collection of essays and reflections on many important issues of our time.

Written in lively, crisp, and often humourous prose, Waring provides illuminating commentary on topics such as gay marriage, human rights, globalization, the environment, and international relations and development.

Including accounts of being in India at the time of Indira Gandhi's assassination, and in Ethiopia's during the 1984 famine, Waring's vivid writing remains contemporarily relevant, while this collection includes recent writings on the post-9/11 world.

Brimming with pieces that are essential reading for anyone concerned with the state of the world, 1 Way 2 C the World is bound to fascinate and inspire.
