Food Wars: The Global Battle for Mouths, Minds and Markets

Food Wars: The Global Battle for Mouths, Minds and Markets by Tim Lang & Michael Heasman

In the years since publication of the first edition of Food Wars much has happened in the world of food policy. This new edition brings these developments fully up to date within the original analytical framework of competing paradigms or worldviews shaping the direction and decision-making within food politics and policy.

The key theme of the importance of integrating human and environmental health has become even more pressing. In the first edition the authors set out and brought together the different strands of emerging agendas and competing narratives. The second edition retains the same...

Earth Democracy: Justice, Sustainability, and Peace

Earth Democracy: Justice, Sustainability, and Peace by Vandana ShivaWorld-renowned environmental activist and physicist Vandana Shiva calls for a radical shift in the values that govern democracies, condemning the role that unrestricted capitalism has played in the destruction of environments and livelihoods. She explores the issues she helped bring to international attention—genetic food engineering, culture theft, and natural resource privatization—uncovering their links to the rising tide of fundamentalism, violence against women, and planetary death. Struggles on the streets of Seattle and Cancun and in homes and farms across the world have yielded a set...

The Tragedy of European Civilization: Towards an Intellectual History of the Twentieth Century

The Tragedy of European Civilization: Towards an Intellectual History of the Twentieth Century by Harry RednerThe tragedy of European civilization is a protracted historical event spanning the twentieth century. During this time some of the greatest modern thinkers were actively producing works that both reflected and shaped what was happening in history. This work is a critique of their ideas. Harry Redner establishes where and how they went wrong, in some cases with apocalyptic consequences for Europe and the world.

Globalizing Literary Genres: Literature, History, Modernity

Globalizing Literary Genres: Literature, History, Modernity by Jernej Habjan

Focused on the relation between processes of globalization and literary genres, this volume intervenes in the prevalent notions of globalization, literary history, genre, and the novel. Using both close reading and world history, both literary criticism and political theory, the book is a timely intervention in the debates about world, postcolonial, and transnational literature as they have been intensified by critical globalization studies, world-systems analysis, Bourdieuan sociology, and cosmopolitanism studies. It contends that globalization, far from starting in recent decades, has a long...

European Products: Making and Unmaking Heritage in Cyprus

European Products: Making and Unmaking Heritage in Cyprus by Gisela WelzOn the Mediterranean island of Cyprus, rural villages, traditional artefacts, even atmospheres and experiences are considered heritage. Heritage making not only protects, but also produces, things, people, and places. Since the Republic of Cyprus joined the European Union in 2004, heritage making and Europeanization are increasingly intertwined in Greek-Cypriot society. Against the backdrop of a long-term ethnographic engagement, the author argues that heritage emerges as an increasingly standardized economic resource, a "European product." Implemented in historic preservation, rural tourism,...

Whose Cosmopolitanism? Critical Perspectives, Relationalities and Discontents

Whose Cosmopolitanism? Critical Perspectives, Relationalities and Discontents by Nina Glick Schiller

The term cosmopolitan is increasingly used within different social, cultural and political settings, including academia, popular media and national politics. However those who invoke the cosmopolitan project rarely ask whose experience, understanding, or vision of cosmopolitanism is being described and for whose purposes? In response, this volume assembles contributors from different disciplines and theoretical backgrounds to examine cosmopolitanism's possibilities, aspirations and applications-as well as its tensions, contradictions, and discontents-so as to offer a critical commentary on the...

Blood and Fire: Toward a Global Anthropology of Labor

Blood and Fire: Toward a Global Anthropology of Labor by Sharryn Kasmir

Based on long-term fieldwork, six vivid ethnographies from Colombia, India, Poland, Spain and the southern and northern U.S. address the dwindling importance of labor throughout the world. The contributors to this volume highlight the growing disconnect between labor struggles and the advancement of the greater common good, a phenomenon that has grown since the 1980s. The collection illustrates the defeat and unmaking of particular working classes, and it develops a comparative perspective on the uneven consequences of and reactions to this worldwide project. In Blood and Fire charts a course...

Urban Residence: Housing and Social Transformations in Globalizing Ecuador

Urban Residence: Housing and Social Transformations in Globalizing Ecuador by Christien KlaufusRiobamba and Cuenca, two intermediate cities in Ecuador, have become part of global networks through transnational migration, incoming remittances, tourism, and global economic connections. Their landscape is changing in several significant ways, a reflection of the social and urban transformations occurring in contemporary Ecuadorian society. Exploring the discourses and actions of two contrasting population groups, rarely studied in tandem, within these cities-popular-settlement residents and professionals in the planning and construction sector-this study analyzes how each is involved in...

United in Discontent: Local Responses to Cosmopolitanism and Globalization

United in Discontent: Local Responses to Cosmopolitanism and Globalization by Dimitrios TheodossopoulosCosmopolitanism is often discussed in a critical and disapproving manner: as a concept complicit with the interests of the powerful, or as a notion related to Western political supremacy, the ills of globalization, inequality, and capitalist economic penetration. Seen as the moral justification for embracing or tolerating cultural difference, ethnically and socially diverse communities unenthusiastic with change, develop an acknowledgement of their common position vis-a-vis a western, "universal" political point of view. By means of exploring the idiosyncratic form of political intimacy generated...

Resistance in an Amazonian Community: Huaorani Organizing against the Global Economy

Resistance in an Amazonian Community: Huaorani Organizing against the Global Economy by Lawrence Ziegler-OteroLike many other indigenous groups, the Huaorani of eastern Ecuador are facing many challenges as they attempt to confront the globalization of capitalism in the 21st century. In 1991, they formed a political organization as a direct response to the growing threat to Huaorani territory posed by oil exploitation, colonization, and other pressures. The author explores the structures and practices of the organization, as well as the contradictions created by the imposition of an alien and hierarchical organizational form on a traditionally egalitarian society. This study has broad implications...

In order to present the "Leading Issues in Development with Globalization" in a balanced manner, to identify differences and commonalities among "Country Experiences" in development with globalization, and to introduce diversified development paradigms with forward-looking discussions "In Search of a New Development Paradigm" for the post-MDGs era, this publication...

Immigration and Regional Integration in a Globalizing World: Myths and Truths about Migration

Immigration and Regional Integration in a Globalizing World: Myths and Truths about Migration by Christopher WhiteThis book challenges prevailing assumptions of a strong connection between international migration and regional integration by arguing there is no substantial relationship between them and that they should not be conflated. Using this perspective, countries can consider the benefits of integration policies without worrying about migration policies.

UNESCO on the Ground: Local Perspectives on Intangible Cultural Heritage

UNESCO on the Ground: Local Perspectives on Intangible Cultural Heritage by Michael Dylan FosterFor nearly 70 years, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has played a crucial role in developing policies and recommendations for dealing with intangible cultural heritage. What has been the effect of such sweeping global policies on those actually affected by them? How connected is UNESCO with what is happening every day, on the ground, in local communities? Drawing upon six communities ranging across three continents-from India, South Korea, Malawi, Japan, Macedonia and China-and focusing on festival, ritual, and dance, this volume illuminates the...

A Moment of Equality for Latin America? Challenges for Redistribution

A Moment of Equality for Latin America? Challenges for Redistribution by Dr. Barbara Prof Fritz

Unlike other regions around the world, several Latin American countries have managed to reduce income inequality over the last decade. Higher growth rates and growing employment, but also innovative wage policies and social programs, have contributed to reducing poverty and narrow income disparities. Yet, despite this progress, nation-states in the region demonstrate little capacity to substantially change their patterns of deeply rooted inequalities.

Focusing on the limits and challenges of redistributive policies in Latin America, this volume synthesizes and updates the discussion of inequality...

Soil Not Oil: Environmental Justice in an Age of Climate Crisis

Soil Not Oil: Environmental Justice in an Age of Climate Crisis by Vandana ShivaIn Soil Not Oil, Vandana Shiva explains that a world beyond dependence on fossil fuels and globalization is both possible and necessary. Condemning industrial agriculture as a recipe for ecological and economic disaster, Shiva champions the small, independent farm: their greater productivity, their greater potential for social justice as they put more resources into the hands of the poor, and the biodiversity that is inherent to the traditional farming practiced in small-scale agriculture. What we need most in a time of changing climates and millions who are hungry, she argues, is sustainable,...

A Practice of Ethics for Global Politics: Ethical Reflexivity

A Practice of Ethics for Global Politics: Ethical Reflexivity by Jack L. Amoureux

What kind of ethics in world politics is possible if there is no foundation for moral knowledge or global reality is at least complex and contingent? Furthermore, how can an ethics grapple with difference, a persistent and confounding feature for global politics? This book responds to the call for a bold and creative approach to ethics that avoids assuming or aspiring to universality, and instead prioritizes difference, complexity and uncertainty by turning to reflexivity, not as method or methodology, but as a practice of ethics for politics.

This practice, 'ethical reflexivity', offers individuals,...
