The Western System and Global Human Rights Abuse
By Winin Pereira
In separate chapters on such rights as those of children, women and the family, the right to development and the right to food, health and education, the author reveals the hypocrisy of the West in maintaining the bloated and unsustainable lifestyles of its people by its continued exploitation of what he calls the "Two-Thirds" world. He successfully contrasts the widely publicised and loudly proclaimed human rights concerns of the West with its actual position today as a pre-eminent contributor to global human rights abuse.
A refreshing analysis from a very different perspective of the harsh realities of our increasingly "globalized" late twentieth century world and the first fiercely critical assessment and evaluation of the UN Declaration by a major thinker from the South
