Economy, Difference, Empire: Social Ethics for Social Justice, by Gary Dorrien

Economy, Difference, Empire: Social Ethics for Social Justice, by Gary Dorrien. Recommended by NCC Poverty Director Rev. Michael Livingston.

Gary Dorrien argues for the social-ethical necessity of politics well seasoned in social justice. His essays analyse major historical and contemporary figures such as Walter Rauschenbusch, Reinhold Niebuhr, Rosemary R. Reuther, Ctie Cannon, and Cornel West. Dorrien’s own personal experience in movements for social justice is woven into his narrative.
