Overview

This book, published in Europe and USA for the first time, looks specifically at addressing oppression in people. By narrowing the focus, Anne Bishop again raises a number of questions concerning where oppression comes from. Has it always been with us as a part of ‘human nature’? What can we do to change it? What does individual healing have to do with the struggles for social justice? What does social justice have to do with individual healing?

Why do some who experience oppression develop a life-long commitment to fighting oppression, while others turn around and oppress others?
