This revised and updated second edition of The Globalization and Development Reader builds on the considerable success of a first edition that has been used around the world. It combines selected readings and editorial material to provide a coherent text with global coverage, reflecting new theoretical and empirical developments. It provides original texts, including classics in the field and others at the cutting edge, which have been carefully edited for the non–technical reader, and offers concise definitions of key terms and concepts, requiring no prior knowledge about globalization and development or related theories.
The second edition expands the collection of classic texts and, at the same time, provides the most important and readable articles and book selections on recent developments. More than half of the readings are new for the second edition, with a higher degree of editing for a student readership, and with increased coverage of China and India supporting its genuinely global coverage. New pieces help to capture the implications for developing countries of the recent Great Recession of the global North. There is more on global inequality and uneven economic development, as well as on women, international migration, the role of cities, agriculture and the environment, and especially climate change. There is also new material on the ability of labour to organize across borders.
This book is an engaging and illuminating collection that includes a general introduction to the field, and short, insightful section introductions that introduce each reading. It provides an up–to–date primer and core reference source for students, scholars, and development practitioners wishing to get up to speed quickly on the issues surrounding social change, globalization, and development in the "Third World".
