Description

This text provides a comprehensive introduction to the concept of globalization and its challenge to the contemporary study of development.

This text provides a comprehensive introduction to the concept of globalization and its challenge to the contemporary study of development.

Part 1 introduces the theoretical issues and debates surrounding globalization, illustrates the often contested nature of the concept, and considers the implications for the future of development studies.

Part 2 reviews more specific theory and policy implications by assessing the impact of globalization on a number of key areas of study in development studies. These included the environment, gender, human right, multinationals, and urban development.

A key underlying theme is whether a seeming transition from development studies to global studies is offering anything new and fruitful for our future understanding and study of development.

‘Globalization and Development Studies’ is essential reading for all students and academics of development and globalization across development studies, politics and international relations, geography, and sociology.
