Description

Globalization is one of the most controversial concepts of our age and it is not surprising that heated debates rage around it. However, these debates are restricted largely to the economic and technological aspects-the impact of globalization on our sociocultural, environmental, moral, and humanitarian realities has received inadequate attention.

This volume brings together eleven articles, written by distinguished commentators on globalization, which explore these neglected dimensions. Knitting together theoretical aspects and empirical knowledge, it arrives at a balanced view of globalization. Covering a wide range of issues and nations, including Africa and the Arab world, this volume analyzes:

The global-local interface
Global disparities and the rise of anti-globalization movements
Global altruism and the sociology of humanity
Women`s empowerment
Cultures in conflict
White-collar crime and violence
The global environmental crisis

Overall, the volume highlights the importance of understanding globalization as a non-unilinear and multi-dimensional process, with immense possibilities for intervention, rather than as an overarching project with a predetermined goal. With its fresh insights into a subject of immense topical importance, this wide-ranging and coherent volume will attract the attention of students and scholars in the fields of sociology, anthropology, economics, political science, geography, and development studies. It will also be of interest to social activists, journalists, policymakers, and NGOs.
