Published on April 16 2010


Three books by Brock Sociology professors were launched recently at an event in Academic South.

Murray E. G. Smith’s Global Capitalism in Crisis: Karl Marx and the Decay of the Profit System discusses how the world economy is experiencing a devastating slump not seen since the Second World War.

About Canada: Animal Rights by John Sorenson discusses our country’s animal rights record, from the fur trade to the seal hunt to the Calgary Stampede.

White Femininity: Race, Gender and Power by Katerina Deliovsky argues that white women are coerced into demonstrating their “whiteness” through elements such as sexual partners, participation in race inequality and adhering to white feminine beauty standards.
