Summary

This new edition of a classic book, expanded to encompass the last seven years of work, experiences, and insight, looks specifically at addressing oppression in people. By narrowing the focus, Anne Bishop again raises a number of questions concerning where oppression comes from: Has it always been with us as a part of 'human nature'? What can we do to change it? What does individual healing have to do with the struggles for social justice?
