Exploring the struggles against moral and cultural imperialism.
This is the third volume of the series Reinventing Social Emancipation: Towards New Manifestoes. Another Knowledge Is Possible
explores the struggles against moral and cultural imperialism and
neoliberal globalization that have taken place over the past few
decades, and the alternatives that have emerged in countries throughout
the developing world from Brazil and Colombia, to India, South Africa
and Mozambique. In particular it looks at the issue of biodiversity,
the confrontation between scientific and non-scientific knowledges, and
the increasing difficulty experienced by great numbers of people in
accessing information and scientific-technological knowledge.

Endorsements & Reviews
“In the 1980s Margaret Thatcher declared 'There is no alternative.' At the beginning of the 21st century the World Social Forum replied, 'Another World is Possible.' The project, Reinventing Social Emancipation, is a passionate and wide-ranging effort at enriching our vision of that other world.” — Erik Olin Wright
“At last, someone is putting concrete analysis on 'counter-hegemonic globalization from the bottom up.' Boaventura de Sousa Santos has assembled social scientists from Latin America, Africa, and Asia to describe another kind of democracy, full of lessons for the benighted countries of the North, where it should be mandatory reading for serious people.” — Immanuel Wallerstein
