Negotiating citizenship : migrant women in Canada and the global system by Daiva K Stasiulis( Book )

14 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While the designated 'rights' of capital to travel freely across borders have increased, the citizenship rights of the majority of people, particularly the most vulnerable, have tended to decline. Taking Canada as an example of a major host state to international migrants, this study considers how migrant women workers from ethnic minorities from two Third World regional settings - the West Indies and the Philippines - have attempted to negotiate citizenship rights in an age of neo-liberalism and globalisation. The authors challenge traditional theories of citizenship, which either base citizenship on membership defined in narrow national terms, or insist that the nation-state is no longer determinant. Alternatively, they demonstrate how citizenship is a contested process, where 'gatekeepers' based in specific nation-states, and the uneven world system, create barriers to citizenship rights. The transnational character of migrants' lives - their labour strategies, family households and political practices - offer important challenges to inequitable and exclusionary aspects of nation-state citizenship
Ideology and class conflict in Jamaica : the politics of rebellion by Abigail B Bakan( Book )

15 editions published between 1990 and 2009 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abigail Bakan argues that there has been a recurrent ideological tradition of resistance to oppression among the black labouring classes in Jamaica. She reveals this pattern through analysis of three periods of mass resistance: the 1831 rebellion led by slaves, the revolt of 1865 in which former slaves demanded greater control over and entitlement to agricultural land, and the 1938 rebellion provoked by the Jamaican working class

Not one of the family : foreign domestic workers in Canada by Abigail B Bakan( Book )

10 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Not One of the Family, workers-turned-activists and experts on foreign domestic workers document how the Canadian system has institutionalized unequal treatment of citizen and non-citizen workers. Since the 1940s rights of citizenship for immigrant domestic workers in Canada have declined, while the number of women recruited from Third World countries to work in Canadian homes has dramatically increased. The analysis is Not One of the Family is both theoretical and practical, framing ideologies of privacy, maternalism, familialism, and rights, as well as examining government policy, labour organizing, and strategies to resist exploitation." "A key resource for all centres for women and immigrant workers, Not One of the Family is also essential reading for civil rights and immigration lawyers, labour groups, and government policy makers."--Jacket
Critical political studies : debates and dialogues from the left by Abagail B Bakan( Book )

14 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A collective picture of modern capitalism suggests that economic prospects, political costs, and implications for human development and freedom under this system are grim indeed. However the possibility of an alternative viewpoint, and an alternative system, provide grounds for optimism. The authors in Critical Political Studies challenge the neo-liberal, pro-market ideology that has arisen in the age of the so-called "post-communist" new world order, wrestling with the implications of globalization, democratization, and the politics of radical social change
