As globalization expands, more than goods and information are traded between countries. Angela J. Hattery, David G. Embrick, and Earl Smith present a collection of essays that explores the ways in which human rights issues and social inequality are shared globally. The editors focus on the United States' role in contributing to human rights violations both inside and outside its borders. Chapters on contemporary issues such as immigration, colonialism, and reparations illustrate how the United States is inextricably linked to the rest of the world by its relationship to human rights violations and social inequality.
