About this product
- DescriptionOver the past 25 years, numerous books have been written on the advantages and disadvantages of globalization. But the issues arising from rapid global integration have generally been treated in isolation by most academic works. This volume examines the many pitfalls of globalization from the perspective of impoverished and indigeus peoples, including the widening wealth gap, the struggle for restoration of dispossessed lands and cultural rights, global warming and ecological annihilation, and the experiences of women in underdeveloped regions who receive little benefit from their labour and are subject to violence. The United States' growing prison industrial complex is discussed as an outgrowth of globalization practices that restrict ecomic mobility. The author concludes with a call for reassessing current ways of living and proposes recreating cultures of conservation and sustainable ecomies in harmony with the Earth.
