Robert W. Cox
There is always a normative perspective in analyses of human affairs, sometimes explicit but often hidden under a claim to value-free research. This book is a dialogue among scholars who, in the spirit of Richard Falk, aim to further social justice, ecological balance, and recogniton of cultural diversity. They recognize that such goals can only be pursued effectively through a realistic analysis of the limits of the possible.
