Sociology and Social Justice contributes to a much-needed conversation on the relevance and necessity for sociologists to play an influential role in addressing the many social justice concerns of the 21st century.   Using contextual global sociology, Sociology and Social Justice explores: •            historic and contemporary sites and contexts around the world •            sociological insights on topics ranging from social movements, to cyber space. •            International struggles, processes, and outcomes   Written by distinguished international scholars, this is an essential text for those looking at issues of: Human Rights, Public Sociology, Democratization, Gender, and Globalization.   A collection of brilliant essays by international scholar-activists, examining concepts and practices from diverse contexts. A must-read for anyone interested in using their teaching, research and action to build a more just society. Mary Romero, Professor of Justice Studies and Social Inquiry, Arizona State University   This volume superbly conceptualises and contextualises social justice in and for our global age. The stellar cast of sociologists connect concepts to practices and outline the challenges we face, as well as providing necessary responses. Gurminder K Bhambra, Professor of Postcolonial and Decolonial Studies, University of Sussex This impressive collection reinvigorates the criticality of the social in sociology. It reconceptualises social justice as a centre of sociological action. The book reminds us that it is not enough for sociology to offer insights, it must take the lead in championing change at the global, national, and local levels. Maggie Walter, Professor of Sociology, University of Tasmania   This is an excellent set of chapters bringing to the fore new perspectives on the social injustices and inequalities facing a world in crisis. The book is theoretically and empirically rigorous and integrates compelling scenarios from various parts of the world. Kammila Naidoo, Professor of Sociology, University of Johannesburg
