The modern world is characterised by pervasive economic inequalities. Strong economic growth in some developing countries has contributed to a degree to a reduction in the levels of inequality between nations, yet inequality within nations remains high and in some cases, continues to increase. Ethnic Stratification and Economic Inequality around the World investigates the reasons for these striking differences, exploring the coincidence and interaction between economic stratification and ethnic differentiation. Drawing on extensive international survey and statistical data, the author develops a new theory and concrete hypotheses concerning the conditions which lead toward extreme inequality and those which tend toward greater equality. A systematic examination of the interaction between class structures, social stratification and ethnic differentiation, this book sheds light on the manner in which the resulting social structures produce different levels of economic inequality, offering a fivefold typology of patterns of ethnic stratification, which can be applied to present-day world regions. Drawing on the work of Max Weber to provide a rigorous investigation of inequality around the world, it demonstrates what 'sociology as a science of social reality' can significantly contribute to our understanding of global economic stratification. The book is relevant for a wide social-scientific audience, particularly for sociologists, economists and political scientists working in a comparative perspective.

What do Eastern Europe's booming sex trade, America's subprime mortgage lending scandal, China’s fake goods industry, and celebrity philanthropy in Africa have in common? With biopirates trolling the blood industry, fish-farming bandits ravaging the high seas, pornography developing virtually in Second Life, and games like World of Warcraft spawning online sweatshops, how are rogue industries transmuting into global empires? And will the entire system be transformed by the advent of sharia economics? With the precision of an economist and the narrative deftness of a storyteller, syndicated journalist Loretta Napoleoni examines how the world is being reshaped by dark economic forces, creating victims out of millions of ordinary people whose lives have become trapped inside a fantasy world of consumerism. Napoleoni reveals the architecture of our world, and in doing so provides fresh insight into many of the most insoluble problems of our era.

Set in 1940s and '50s provincial Brazil, House of the Fortunate Buddhas is perhaps most startling for it fiery, uninhibited, and highly compelling narrator. By force of her intelligence, courage, and strength of will, she achieves an unlikely liberation of both mind and body, and her sardonic, frank—some have called it pornographic—monologue is an unforgettable work of literary ventriloquism, telling the story of one woman's journey toward fulfillment. From the book: “I decided to give my testimony orally, instead of writing it down, for several reasons, the major one being arthritis. No, let's cut that last line out! I don't have arthritis, and even if I did, I certainly wouldn't let any get into my book. So, fine: preface. I decided to give my testimony orally instead of in writing mainly because it's impossible to write about sex, at least in Portuguese, without coming off like a prostitute who's just been asked to 'talk dirty' for the twentieth time in the same day . . ." House of the Fortunate Buddhas has been translated into French (winning the Grinzane Cavour Prize), Italian, and Spanish, and was adapted into a hit one-woman play in Brazil.

The book explores the cultural and intellectual worlds of the hustling promoters, battling historians, Catholic missionaries, Native American ritual specialists, learned theologians, religious dissenters, magistrates, and governors who clashed and intermingled in the opening decades of colonization and resistance to it. Ranging from the eastern settlements to the western missions of early North America, it examines a period when rhetoric and ritual functioned mainly to persuade, entreat, compel, and solicit.

O livro faz uma abordagem que privilegia a visão do processo histórico fundamentada nos clássicos do materialismo histórico. Segundo o autor, partindo do pressuposto da complexidade inerente à formação social chinesa - evidenciada na convivência no mesmo país de formações econômico-sociais contemporâneas, mas não coetâneas -, o espetacular crescimento econômico chinês é fruto de uma decisão política e visão estratégica que serve de amparo à maximização do mercado, do planejamento, da iniciativa privada e da propriedade estatal dos meios de produção.
