Description - Challenging Global Inequality by Alastair Greig

This major introductory text written by three leading names in the field provides an accessible overview of the challenges faced in overcoming global poverty and inequality in the twenty-first century. Through an in-depth assessment of development theory and practice, the authors set out to advance two key arguments: the first being the importance of historically contextualizing contemporary developmental problems in order to assess policy proposals; and the second that inequality matters, and how this notion has continually remained a central feature of development debates from colonial times to present day. Ideal for undergraduate students taking development modules as part of Political Science and International Relations degrees, this engaging text proves to be essential reading when exploring the impacts of development on today's international political economy. With each chapter covering inequalities from all different angles, the authors clearly outline the impact of models such as globalization and neoliberalism, as well as offering alternative views on the challenges posed by the UN's Millennium Development Goals.Also available is a companion website with extra features to accompany the text, please take a look by clicking below -
