The Changing Face of Globalization

 
Samir Dasgupta (Editor)
Synopsis 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.
