Description from Dominican Publications:
Preaching Justice II presents some of the key ways in which Dominican sisters have promoted justice and contributed to social ethics in the twentieth century, continuing on into the twenty-first. It ranges across the world, from Colombia to Vietnam, and from Sweden to South Africa, and moves from pioneering work in healthcare and teaching in the early twentieth century to working with the most marginalized people and promoting sustainable lifestyles as we entered the twenty-first.

Twenty-two contributions present the work of the sisters in 26 countries, covering a wide range of practical activities and theoretical development, grouped together under five main headings: resisting oppression; taking up the fight against social exclusion; promoting women and children and providing social support; peacebuilding; and ‘building a new vision’.
