In From the Margins of Globalization, Neve Gordon assembles work from leading intellectuals and activists in the field of human rights.

Whether it's Mohammad Khatami writing on the United Nations and its role after 9/11 or Ytienne 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.
