The December issue of Global Dialogue (GD6.4) has now been posted. We lead with a rare interview with Anthony Giddens reflecting on his role as a sociologist in the British House of Lords. We follow with 5 articles on the Greek economic, political and social crisis as seen through divergent sociological lenses. We have three articles from Latin America – Argentina, Mexico and Peru – on the uphill but resolute struggles for abortion rights. Moving to the Middle East we have a symposium on the recently published report on Social Sciences in the Arab World. And we end with three special columns: an interview of George Ritzer on Prosumption and McDonaldization of the world by a student from Kosovo; Edward Tiryakian’s memories of the ISA; and the introduction to the second Japanese Editorial Team.
