Description - Globalization and Development Studies by Frans J. Schuurman

Globalization and Development provides a comprehensive introduction to the concept of globalization and its challenge to the contemporary study of development, Frans J Schuurman's timely volume is divided into two parts. Part one introduces the theoretical issues and debates surrounding globalization, and illustrates the often contested nature of the concept, considering the implications for the future of development studies. Part two 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 include the environment, gender, human rights, multinationals, and urban development. An essential underlying theme to the book 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.
