Dismantling Privilege:

An Ethics of Accountability

Revised and Updated

Mary Elizabeth Hobgood

 Dismanteling Privilage
Mary Elizabeth Hobgood's bestselling Dismantling Privilege: An Ethics of Accountability reminds us the categories of gender, race, and class are not biological givens, but social constructs used to suppress some groups while giving power to others, diminishing the lives of all humankind and forestalling the possibility of a better society. Hobgood's proposed solution - a politics of accountability and solidarity - resonates throughout this new edition, which also includes a fresh introduction, updated statistics, and a concluding chapter targeting ecological crisis as the most pressing concern for accountable disciples. Additionally, Dismantling Privilege: An Ethics of Accountability looks to political stirrings in Africa and Latin America for inspiration in building the movement.
