For every group that is oppressed, another group is privileged. Privilege, as the other side of oppression, has received insufficient attention in critical theories and in the practices of social change. As a result, dominant groups have been allowed to reinforce their dominance. This second edition of Undoing Privilege revises the six sites of privilege from the first edition: Western, class, gender, race, sexual and embodied privilege with updated research and resources. It also provides four new chapters on anthropocentric, religious, adult and cis gender privilege. The new edition of the book engages with new theoretical developments and the changed political and policy context for addressing privilege and oppression. It also demonstrates how members of privileged groups can critically interrogate their own dominant position and the potential and limitations of them becoming allies against oppression and their unearned advantage.

Recensioner i media

'This is a scholarly, well-written book that attempts to portray a refreshingly new viewpoint about challenging and confronting an unequal and unjust world order. The author's transparent sincerity, humility and acute awareness about one's privileged position are embedded throughout the narrative.' Ravindra R.P., India 'Undoing Privilege confronts major taken-for-granted dimensions of privilege: Western, class, gender, race, sexual, embodied. It also outlines ways to undo all this, in theory, practice and indeed activism - a huge task that makes for a very important book, written with brevity and humility.' Jeff Hearn, author of The Gender of Oppression 'It should be essential reading for anyone committed to social justice.' Abby Ferber, The Matrix Center for the Advancement of Social Equity and Inclusion
