Handbook of Neoliberalism

Simon Springer

Handbook of Neoliberalism by Simon Springer

Neoliberalism is easily one of the most powerful discourses toemerge within the social sciences in the last two decades, and the number of scholars who write about this dynamic and unfolding process of socio-spatial transformation is
astonishing. Even more surprising though is that there has, until now, not been an attempt to provide a wide-ranging volume that engages with the multiple registers in which neoliberalism has evolved.

The Routledge Handbook of Neoliberalism seeks to offer a comprehensive overview of the phenomenon of neoliberalism by examining the range of ways that it has been theorized,...

Drug Trafficking and International Security

Paul Rexton Kan

Drug Trafficking and International Security by Paul Rexton KanEach chapter examines how drug trafficking affects a particular security issue, such as rogue nations, weak and failing states, protracted intrastate conflicts, terrorism, transnational crime, public health, and cyber security. While some texts see drug trafficking as an international threat in itself, others place it under the topic of transnational organized crime, arguing that the threats emanate from criminal groups. This book, on the other hand, provides a thorough understanding of how vast array of threats to international security are exacerbated by drug trafficking.

When Good Jobs Go Bad: Globalization, De-unionization, and Declining Job Quality in the North American Auto Industry

Jeffrey S. Rothstein

When Good Jobs Go Bad: Globalization, De-unionization, and Declining Job Quality in the North American Auto Industry by Jeffrey S. RothsteinIn When Good Jobs Go Bad, Jeffrey Rothstein looks at the impact of globalization on workers in the North American auto industry, revealing that globalization has had a deleterious effect on even the most valued of blue-collar jobs. Rothstein shows how the consolidation of the Mexican and U.S.-Canadian auto industries, the expanding number of foreign automakers in North America, and the spread of lean production have all undermined organized labor and harmed workers.

Nepali Migrant Women: Resistance and Survival in America

Shobha Hamal Gurung

Nepali Migrant Women: Resistance and Survival in America by Shobha Hamal Gurung

In this pathbreaking and timely work, Hamal Gurung gives voice to the growing
number of Nepali women who migrate to the United States to work in the informal
economy. Highlighting the experiences of thirty-five women, mostly college
educated and middle class, who take on domestic service and unskilled labor
jobs, Hamal Gurung challenges conventional portraits of Third World women
as victims forced into low-wage employment. Instead, she sheds light on Nepali
women's strategic decisions to accept downwardly mobile positions in order to
earn more income, thereby achieving greater agency in their home...

SARS from East to West

Eva-Karin Olsson

SARS from East to West by Eva-Karin OlssonSARS from East to West is the production of international collaboration investigating the first major pandemic in the new millennium, SARS. As the only major outbreak of a deadly infectious disease in modern times, the SARS case is an excellent example of an emerging contagious disease in an interdependent and interconnected world and provided the bases for how subsequent pandemics, like the bird flu and swine flu, are viewed and managed.

Eva-Karin Olsson and Lan Xue bring together crisis management scholars with genuine knowledge of the geographic area covered in each of the chapters to examine...

The Mobilities Paradigm: Discourses and Ideologies

Marcel Endres

The Mobilities Paradigm: Discourses and Ideologies by Marcel EndresOver the last two decades, the conceptualisation and empirical analysis of mobilities of people, objects and symbols has become an important strand of social science. Yet, the increasing importance of mobilities in all parts of the social does not only happen as observable practices in the material world but also takes place against the background of changing discourses, scientific theories and conceptualisations and knowledge. Within the formation of these mobilities discourses, the social sciences constitute a relevant actor. Focussing on mobility as an object of knowledge from a Foucauldian...

Eurocentrism at the Margins: Encounters, Critics and Going Beyond

Lutfi Sunar

Eurocentrism at the Margins: Encounters, Critics and Going Beyond by Lutfi SunarEurocentrism remains a prevailing feature of Western-dominated social scientific perspectives, tending to ignore alternative views originating outside the West and thus maintaining a form of scholarly hegemony. As such, there is an urgent need to reconsider Eurocentrism in social science, to ask whether it constitutes an obstacle to understanding social problems and whether it is possible to go beyond Eurocentrism in the construction of reliable, more universal knowledge. At the same time, certain questions persist, particularly with regard to the extent to which recent revisionist challenges...

Biopiracy: The Plunder of Nature and Knowledge

Vandana Shiva

Biopiracy: The Plunder of Nature and Knowledge by Vandana ShivaGenetic engineering and the cloning of organisms are “the ultimate expression of the commercialization of science and the commodification of nature.… Life itself is being colonized,” according to renowned environmentalist Vandana Shiva. The resistance to this biopiracy, she argues, is the struggle to conserve both cultural and biological diversity. As the land, forests, oceans, and atmosphere have already been colonized, eroded, and polluted, corporations are now looking for new colonies to exploit and invade for further accumulation??"in Shiva??s view, the interior spaces of the bodies...

The Olympic Movement and the Sport of Peacemaking

Ram?n|Burleson Cindy Spaaij

The Olympic Movement and the Sport of Peacemaking by Ram?n|Burleson Cindy Spaaij

Sport and peacemaking have evolved. It is no longer the case that the Olympic Games and war games exist in isolation from each other. Increasingly, policymakers, peacekeepers, athletes, development workers, presidents of nations and others combine forces in an "integrated" approach towards peace. This approach is located not only within the broader, historically evolved Olympic Movement but also in relation to a newly emerged social movement which promotes development and peace through sport. This book critically examines the ways in which this development is being played out at global, national...

The Right in Latin America: Elite Power, Hegemony and the Struggle for the State

Barry Cannon

The Right in Latin America: Elite Power, Hegemony and the Struggle for the State by Barry Cannon

Most current analysis on Latin American politics has been directed at examining the shift to the left in the region. Very little attention, however, has been paid to the reactions of the right to this phenomenon. What kind of discursive, policy, and strategic responses have emerged among the right in Latin America as a result of this historic turn to the left? Have there been any shifts in attitudes to inequality and poverty as a result of the successes of the left in those areas? How has the right responded strategically to regain the political initiative from the left? And what implications...
