About this product
- DescriptionUnmasking the neoliberal paradox, this book provides a robust conceptual and theoretical synthesis of development, power and the environment. With seven case studies on global challenges such as under-development, food regime, climate change, dam building, identity politics, and security vulnerability, the book offers a new framework of a double-risk society for the Global South. With apparent ecological and social limits to neoliberal globalization and development, the current levels of consumption are unsustainable, inequitable, and inaccessible to the majority of humans. Power has a great role to play in this global trajectory. Though power is one of most pervasive phemena of human society, it is probably one of the least understood concepts. The growth of transnational corporations, the dominance of world-wide financial and political institutions, and the extensive influence of media that are nearly mopolized by corporate interests are key factors shaping our global society today. In the growing concentration of power in few hands, what is apparent is a n-apparent nature of power. Understanding the interplay of power in the discourse of development is a crucial matter at a time when our planet is in peril - both environmentally and socially. This book addresses this current crucial need.
