About the Author

Iris Young, University of Chicago


"Young's posthumous volume is a thought-provoking contribution to the ongoing debate on how best to reformulate key concepts in international relations theory for the purpose of critical analysis." Marit Hovdal Moan, Journal of Peace Research "This work offers a new facet for international discourse not only on violence, war and conflict resolution, but also about issues relating to sovereignty, global governance, peace and justice. The author's knowledge and enthusiasm for the subject are compelling. An admirable aspect of the book is the treatment of the topics from theoretical and comparative perspectives before putting them into specific contexts; this provides the book's strength. The massive amount of data and information assembled in the process also offer much material to both the general reader and experts eager for an alternative approach to thinking about war, violence, peace building, sovereignty and conflict resolution." Sociology "Global Challenges is a collection of essays that apply Iris Young?s penetrating philosophical inquiry to some of the most important issues in world politics today. Young brings a thoughtful critical analysis of self-determination, humanitarian intervention, violence, global democracy and justice to matters ranging from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to the anti-sweatshop movement in the garment industry. This deeply ethical book is a must-read for students of global politics and international theory. Young?s courageous moral stand against injustice and war gives us a realistic road-map for a more just and peaceful future. Her wise counsel will be sorely missed." J. Ann Tickner, University of Southern California "This collection combines all that is remarkable in Iris Marion Young?s work ? her philosophical clarity, her moral anger with violence and injustice, and her irrepressible belief in the possibility of a better world. Global Challenges helps us think more clearly about what it means to bear responsibility for injustices in other parts of the world, and what self-determination means in a context of global interdependence." Anne Phillips, London School of Economics "Realistic, yet hopeful, these last essays by Iris Young show that a different world is possible. She understands well the massive weight of globalizing structures that inflict violence, domination, uniformity. But her lucid analyses illustrate how intelligent politics can resist, deflect, and reform these forces ? through new ideas, developed specifically for particular contexts of oppression, and through collaboration with existing social movements (anti-war, anti-sweatshops). Appreciating how she interprets the world differently, we learn how to change it." Thomas Pogge, Columbia University "Iris Marion Young was one of the truly original political theorists of our dark times. She brought something new into the world. This superb collection of articles on global politics, all first published between 2000 and 2006, is exemplary of her courageous and challenging practice of critical thought at its best." James Tully, University of Victoria
