The Anthem Sociological Perspectives on Human Rights and Development series will complement, extend and occasionally challenge the existing literature on the human right to development. The series speaks to the points of commonality between two rapidly growing domains of sociological inquiry: the sociology of human rights and the sociology of development. Titles in the series look to scholarly and practical attempts to grapple with the legacy of top-down development by considering economic and social rights, democracy, subsidiarity, cultural rights, women’s rights and environmental rights.
