9780745653518: Confronting Equality: Gender, Knowledge and Global Change

What does social equality mean now, in a world of markets, global power and new forms of knowledge? In this new book, Raewyn Connell combines vivid research with theoretical insight and radical politics to address this question. The focus moves across gender equality struggles, family change, class and education, intellectual workers, and the global dimension of social science, to contemporary theorists of knowledge and global power, and the political dilemmas of today’s left. Written with clarity and passion, this book proposes a bold agenda for social science, and shows it in action.

Raewyn Connell is known internationally for her powerfully argued and field-defining books Masculinities, Gender and Power, Making the Difference, and Southern Theory. This new volume gathers together a broad spectrum of her recent work which distinctively combines close-focus field research and large-scale theory, and brings this to bear on those questions of social justice and struggles for change that have long been at the heart of her writing, and will have wide-ranging implications for the social sciences and social activism in the twenty-first century.

About the Author:

Raewyn Connell is University Professor at University of Sydney. She is an internationally renowned researcher in the field of sex and gender; her previous publications include Masculinities, Gender and Power, Making the Difference, and Southern Theory.

Review:

"You may not agree with Connell's profound critique of neoliberalism, which according to her is responsible for the inequalities of our time, but this book will at the very least provoke you to rethink and reanalyze the current system. This volume is a valiant and much needed call for action."
The Global Journal

"This book is well worth reading by a wide range of sociologists who wish to connect up their technical work with wider currents of society and who might wish to see this approach to sociology as an explicitly justified model."
International Sociology

"Confronting Equality showcases sociology at work, making sense of complex and shifting global dynamics of class, gender, and intellectual labor. And since this is the work of Raewyn Connell, it is also social science at its best: characterized by richly theorized empirical research, and carving out a place for a radically generative and engaged world sociology."
Michael A. Messner, University of Southern California

"Confronting Equality illuminates the contemporary historical period with a blend of incisive theorizing and careful empirical work. Connell explores the shaping force of neoliberalism, the dynamics of global inequality, and processes of social change through a wide-range of topics: masculinities, struggles for gender equality, class inequality in schooling and in family life, intellectual work in the global metropole and periphery. A timely and thought-provoking book."
Barrie Thorne, University of California, Berkeley
