Reviews

"In this provocative and exciting book, Souffrant challenges approaches to global justice made by Rawls and Walzer and others who depend on mainstream Western philosophy. Drawing on the Caribbean consciousness of modernity and on transnational discourse on identity, inclusion, democracy, and participation, Souffrant argues boldly for a model of global justice based on collective responsibility and emphasizing care and concern." - Robert Paul Churchill, Professor of Philosophy, George Washington University, USA

"In a contentious and complex world, the debate over global justice has been dominated by the theories of John Rawls and Michael Walzer. Eddy M. Souffrant, relying on insights gained from the particular interconnectedness of our lives and a more pragmatic account of collective responsibility, offers us an innovative and helpful approach to this problem. Identity, Political Freedom, and Collective Responsibility promises to move this essential conversation forward." - Howard McGary, Professor, Founder and Director of the Rutgers Summer Institute for Diversity in Philosophy, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, USA
