Description - Globalization and Indigenous Peoples in Asia by Dev Nathan

Globalization and the Inclusion of Indigeneous Peoples deals with two processes of globalization that are profoundly influencing the lives of indigenous people - the role of their resources in providing environmental services, and the civilizational changes caused by privatization. Examining how to deal with the exclusion of indigenous people in global flows in order to create a more equal and democratic alternative, the book goes beyond the trend for decrying globalization. Instead it calls for a more democratic and equal alternative.
