Gender, Humiliation, and Global Security: Dignifying Relationships from Love, Sex, and Parenthood to World Affairs aims at outlining the kind of change that needs to be made if we wish to create a less crisis-prone world. This audacious work describes a vision for an alternative future, showing how new approaches to love can dignify gender relations, sex, parenthood, and leadership, and how they can guide us to a world where all citizens can live dignified lives.
The book is organized in three parts. Part I, “Gender, Humiliation, and Lack of Security in Times of Transition,” examines the nature of humiliation and how love and humiliation are influenced by large-scale, historical transitions such as globalization. Part II, “Gender, Humiliation, and Lack of Security in the World Today,” looks at love, sex, parenthood, and leadership and how they can be dignified. Part III, “Global Security through Love and Humility in the Future,” explores how love can be used to inspire psychological, social, cultural, and political strategies and to stimulate global, systemic change.
