World Social Forum - Critical Explorations
Book edited by Jai Sen and Peter Waterman, published in 2012 by OpenWord, New Delhi / India
This book, World Social Forum : Critical Explorations, is a sequel to the 2004 book titled World Social Forum : Challenging Empires (Viveka, New Delhi; edited by Jai Sen, Anita Anand, Arturo Escobar, and Peter Waterman) and to its international second edition in 2009 (Black Rose Books, Montreal; edited by Jai Sen and Peter Waterman). It brings together some 35 essays from around the world from authors young and old, women and men, black brown and white, and activists, scholars, and those in between that enable us all to critically explore and understand this important phenomenon called the World Social Forum; and so to better know what kind of world we want to see and to build.
