Freedoms and Solidarities In Pursuit of Human Rights

by Judith Blau, Alberto Moncada

Freedoms and Solidarities In Pursuit of Human Rights Synopsis

Building on the materials of the first two volumes in their trilogy on human rights, in this third volume Blau and Moncada situate many of their arguments within the classical tradition of critical social science, but they also advance the genre of utopian social thought. This is not, in their hands, a speculative undertaking. They draw from empirical evidence, including many national comparisons. In volume 2, for example, they show how the U.S. Constitution could be updated and revised to include the human rights provisions that most other constitutions do, and in volume 3 they discuss ways that participatory democracy could work in the United States and elsewhere, and they lay out possibilities for economic democracy and worker ownership.
