Becoming an Ally: Breaking the Cycle of Oppression

by Anne Bishop - £26.99  Zed Books (2002)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781842772256 | ISBN 10: 1842772252

This book, published in Europe and USA for the first time, looks specifically at addressing oppression in people. By narrowing the focus, Anne Bishop again raises a number of questions concerning where oppression comes from. Has it always been with us as a part of ‘human nature’? What can we do to change it? What does individual healing have to do with the struggles for social justice? What does social justice have to do with individual healing? Why do members of oppressed groups fight each other, sometimes more viciously than their oppressor? Why do some who experience oppression develop a life-long commitment to fighting oppression, while others turn around and oppress others?

"This book is a delight to read, its language simple and clear, its examples vivid, and its message profoundly useful. It‘s changed the way I look at my own oppression and the way I do social change work. I recommend it highly." "
(Diana Ralph, Social Work, Carleton University )
