  4. Reading Across Borders: Storytelling and Knowledges of Resistance.Shari Stone-Mediatore - 2003 - Palgrave-Macmillan.
    Bringing together the work of Hannah Arendt, poststructuralist and hermeneutic theories of narrative, and feminist standpoint theory, this book examines the role of narrative in both ideological and critical political thinking. The book recasts feminist affirmations (and critiques) of "marginal experience" by situating experience and identity within a theory of narrative and it identifies the specific narrative strategies that impede, and those that facilitate, feminist and democratic struggles.

  8. The Constitution of a Federal Commonwealth: The Making and Meaning of the Australian Constitution.Nicholas Aroney - 2009 - Cambridge University Press.
    By analysing original sources and evaluating conceptual frameworks, this book discusses the idea proclaimed in the Preamble to the Constitution that Australia is a federal commonwealth.

  9. Counterworks: Managing the Diversity of Knowledge.Richard Fardon (ed.) - 1995 - Routledge.
    Globalization is often described as the spread of western culture to other parts of the world. How accurate is the depiction of "cultural" flow? In Counterworks , ten anthropologists examine the ways in which global processes have affected particular localities where they have carried out research. They challenge the validity of anthropological concepts of culture in the light of the pervasive connections which exist between local and global factors everywhere. Rather than assuming that the world is culturally diverse, this book (...)
