Book Description: Confronting Discrimination and Inequality in China focuses on the most challenging areas of discrimination and inequality in China, including discrimination faced by HIV/AIDS afflicted individuals, rural populations, migrant workers, women, people with disabilities, and ethnic minorities. The Canadian contributors offer rich regional, national, and international perspectives on how constitutions, laws, policies, and practices, both in Canada and in other parts of the world, battle discrimination and the conflicts that rise out of it. The Chinese contributors include some of the most independent-minded scholars and practitioners in China. Their assessments of the challenges facing China in the areas of discrimination and inequality not only attest to their personal courage and intellectual freedom but also add an important perspective on this emerging superpower.

Book Description: Peace and Conflict are commonly understood as polar opposites. In a polarised opposition there is no place for conflict in peace, and peace, the privileged term of the binary opposition, needs to be pure and homogeneous, cleansed of any unlicensed differences and contradictions. Yet, a radically plural and demo-cratic politic must harbour conflicting and antagonistic views of things; opposition is internal to it; and its view of freedom says that "freedom is always the freedom of those who think differently". In contrast, the ideal of a homogeneous, self--same, indivisibly unified society is totalitarian and repressive of the very differenc-es that make a society, any society, possible. The ocgaErtizers of the 2nd International Conference on Communication and Media Studies at Eastern Mediterranean. University, 2-4 May 2007, thought that a deconstructive and feminist framework that destabilises the entrenched certain-ties of polar oppositions and an ethical response to the irreducible otherness of the other, as well as to one's own alterity, would be very appropriate and relevant in our times for rethinking these issues, and relied on that framework in formulat-ing the theme of the conference as "Communication in Peace/Conflict in Communication" to emphasise the interrelationship of the two parts separated by the slash, as well as the formulation of the subtopics that were listed in the call for papers. This volume includes work from around the world that responded to that call.

Book Description: The World Health Organization (WHO) reported more than 7 million deaths from cancer-- 2.5 percent of all deaths--in 2005. Each year there are approximately 11 million new cases, and WHO expects that the number will double by 2020. Although the disease is not uncommon in rich nations, 70 percent of cancer deaths occur in low- and middle-income regions and countries. The growing frequency of the disease reinforces its significance as a metaphor for lack of control and degeneration and as a signifier of difference, something that is part of one's body and world and yet completely unacceptable. In this book, anthropologists examine the lived experiences of individuals confronting cancer and reveal the social context in which prevention and treatment may succeed or fail.
