sites of resistance visited that helped shape book

WES REHBERG'S NEW BOOK: "POLITICAL GRACE: THE GIFT OF RESISTANCE:

SYNOPSIS; Philosophy and theology have increasingly turned to the problem of the rising numbers of people who live in severe conditions of oppression, people who are surplus to global economic and political orders which the oppressed define as "neoliberal" and "neocolonial."
 This work, Political Grace: The Gift of Resistance, is part of that turning, through conversations with those who were and still are living under oppressive conditions, especially in Central America and Mexico, and through conversations with phenomenology, feminist theology, feminist jurisprudence, ethics, and liberation theology ... background that helped shaped this book is from first-hand experience.
