Globalisation and the Third World by Ray Kiely

Book Description

This book examines the changing position of the Developing World within the world system. It focuses on particular issues which cut across communities, nations, regions and, in consequence, the world. These include migration, health and disease, the media, transnational corporations, religion, and political and economic institutions. The contributors draw on a wealth of illustrations and global examples to examine topics such as HIV/AIDS transmission, the mediatized Gulf War, consumption patterns, the Third World in the First, Orientalism and Islam, environmental and urban movements, liberation theology in Latin America and the impact of the media. This book provides a critical introduction to the Third World around the unifying theme of globalisation.

Books By Author Ray Kiely

BRICS, US 'Decline' and Global Transformations by Ray Kiely BRICS, US 'Decline' and Global Transformations, Hardback (April 2015)

The author examines the rise of the BRICs and the supposed decline of the United States. Focusing on the boom years from 1992 to 2007, and the crisis years after 2008, he argues that there are limits to the rise of the former and that the extent of US decline has been greatly exaggerated.

Rethinking Imperialism by Ray Kiely Rethinking Imperialism, Hardback (April 2010)

Imperialism has become a key focus of debate about world politics in the post-9/11 world. This major new text provides a systematic reappraisal of the evolution of the phenomenon and the concept from the 19th century as the basis for a reassessment of Globalization and US hegemony in the world today.

Clash of Globalizations by Ray Kiely Clash of Globalizations, Paperback (October 2009)

This work addresses the politics of globalization and the rise of anti-capitalist movements.

New Political Economy of Development by Ray Kiely New Political Economy of Development, Hardback (November 2006)

Analyses changes and continuities in the international order and their implications for development in the 21st century. The author assesses the extent and impact of globalization, and the emergence of a more aggressive unilateralist and militarist stance by the United States and the debates this has provoked on hegemony, empire and imperialism.
