In daily practices, in silent struggles, the countless dramas of societies in conflict, in aspirations of the many lost due to the insolence of the few, a human quest for equality remains. We often fail to see it within the disciplinary boundaries of International Relations. Inequality disappears from view in the face of power.

Recognizing the porous quality of current scholarly conversations, this important volume revisits the theme of inequality, and concentrates on the nexus between inequality and knowledge about inequality. The spaces of engagement in this book are varied, diverse, and multifocal. The contributors, who are leaders in their respective fields, disrupt orthodox knowledge claims about inequality, and force us to rethink international inequality in new ways. Timely, this volume appeals to both the specialist and the general reader interested in reading the shape of our contemporary world.
