Critical political studies : debates and dialogues from the left by Abigail B Bakan( )

15 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and held by 1,583 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A collective picture of modern capitalism suggests that economic prospects, political costs, and implications for human development and freedom under this system are grim indeed. However the possibility of an alternative viewpoint, and an alternative system, provide grounds for optimism. The authors in Critical Political Studies challenge the neo-liberal, pro-market ideology that has arisen in the age of the so-called "post-communist" new world order, wrestling with the implications of globalization, democratization, and the politics of radical social change
Not one of the family : foreign domestic workers in Canada by Abigail B Bakan( )

13 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,527 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Not One of the Family, workers-turned-activists and experts on foreign domestic workers document how the Canadian system has institutionalized unequal treatment of citizen and non-citizen workers. Since the 1940s rights of citizenship for immigrant domestic workers in Canada have declined, while the number of women recruited from Third World countries to work in Canadian homes has dramatically increased. The analysis is Not One of the Family is both theoretical and practical, framing ideologies of privacy, maternalism, familialism, and rights, as well as examining government policy, labour organizing, and strategies to resist exploitation." "A key resource for all centres for women and immigrant workers, Not One of the Family is also essential reading for civil rights and immigration lawyers, labour groups, and government policy makers."--Jacket

Abigail Bakan argues that there has been a recurrent ideological tradition of resistance to oppression among the black labouring classes in Jamaica.
