Not Enough: A Selected Bibliography

May 15th, 2018

The age of human rights has been kindest to the rich. Even as state violations of political rights garnered unprecedented attention due to human rights campaigns, a commitment to material equality disappeared. In its place, market fundamentalism has emerged as the dominant force in national and global economies. In this provocative book, Samuel Moyn analyzes how and why we chose to make human rights our highest ideals while simultaneously neglecting the demands of a broader social and economic justice. Samuel will discuss Not Enough: Human Rights in an Unequal World on Tuesday, 5/22, 6pm at the Co-op.
