Globalization and Development Volume I: Leading issues in development with globalization

Globalization and Development Volume I: Leading issues in development with globalization by Shigeru Thomas Otsubo

Globalization and Development is a "cross-national study" on the "interstate dispersion" of the impacts (on growth, inequality and poverty) that international economic integration provides to the economies of the developing countries. 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...

Women, Gender, Remittances and Development in the Global South

Women, Gender, Remittances and Development in the Global South by Dr. Lothar SmithThis book endeavours to take the conceptualisation of the relationship between transnational remittance exchanges and gender to a new level. Thus, inevitably, it provides a number of case studies of relationships between gender and remittances from around the world, highlighting different processes and practises. Thereby the authors seek to understand the impact of remittances on gender and gender relations, both at the sending as well as at the receiving end. For each case study authors ask how remittances affect gender identities and relationships but also vice versa. By itself this already...

Looking behind the Label: Global Industries and the Conscientious Consumer

Looking behind the Label: Global Industries and the Conscientious Consumer by Tim Bartley & Sebastian Koos & Hiram SamelWhat does it mean when consumers "shop with a conscience" and choose products labeled as fair or sustainable? Does this translate into meaningful changes in global production processes? To what extent are voluntary standards implemented and enforced, and can they really govern global industries? Looking behind the Label presents an informative introduction to global production and ethical consumption, tracing the links between consumers' choices and the practices of multinational producers and retailers. Case studies of several types of products-wood and paper, food, apparel and footwear, and...

Contagion: Health, Fear, Sovereignty

Contagion: Health, Fear, Sovereignty by Bruce MagnussonOver many decades, "contagion" has been a metaphor of choice for everything from global terrorism, suicide bombings, poverty, immigration, global financial crises, human rights, fast food, obesity, divorce, and homosexuality. Essays examine the language of epidemiology used in the war on terror, the repressive effects of global disease surveillance, and films and novels that enact the perplexities of contagion in a global context. Fear of microbial disaster becomes a framework for larger questions about the nature and location of sovereignty and the related questions of contact and hygienic...

Development-Induced Displacement and Resettlement: Causes, Consequences, and Socio-Legal Context

Development-Induced Displacement and Resettlement: Causes, Consequences, and Socio-Legal Context by Bogumil TerminskiThis book explores the issue of development-induced resettlement, with a particular emphasis on the humanitarian, legal, and social aspects of this problem. Today, so-called 'development-induced displacement and resettlement' (DIDR) is one of the dominant causes of internal spatial mobility worldwide. Each year over 15 million people are forced to abandon their homes to make space for economic development infrastructure. The construction of dams and irrigation projects, the expansion of communication networks, urbanization and re-urbanization, the extraction and transportation of mineral resources,...

City Life from Jakarta to Dakar: Movements at the Crossroads

City Life from Jakarta to Dakar: Movements at the Crossroads by AbdouMaliq Simone

City Life from Jakarta to Dakar focuses on the politics incumbent to this process - an "anticipatory politics" - that encompasses a wide range of practices, calculations and economies. As such, the book is not a collection of case studies on a specific theme, not a review of developmental problems, nor does it marshal the focal cities as evidence of particular urban trends. Rather, it examines how possibilities, perhaps inherent in these cities all along, are materialized through the everyday projects of residents situated in the city and the larger world in very different ways.

Bodies Across Borders: The Global Circulation of Body Parts, Medical Tourists and Professionals

Bodies Across Borders: The Global Circulation of Body Parts, Medical Tourists and Professionals by Dr. Beth GreenhoughHistorically organised at a local or national scale, the fields of medicine and healthcare are being radically transformed by new communication, transport and biotechnologies creating, in the process, a genuinely globalised sphere of biomedical production and consumption. This emerging market is characterised by the circulation of bodily materials (tissues, organs and bio-information), patients and expertise across what traditionally have been relatively secure ontological and geographical borders. Crossing both disciplinary and geographical boundaries, this volume draws together a number of...

Migration Across Boundaries: Linking Research to Practice and Experience

Migration Across Boundaries: Linking Research to Practice and Experience by Dr. Tendayi Bloom

Bringing together scholars and practitioners from a range of disciplinary backgrounds working in Europe, North and South America, South Asia and the Middle East, this volume explores the question of how to ensure that migration research feeds back into improving the lives of migrants. It emphasises the necessarily interdisciplinary and cross-boundary nature of migration research, offering methodological recommendations to anyone studying or working in the field, and showing how migration studies can usefully affect real contexts by better exploring the potential that exists for both bridging...

Global Manga: 'Japanese' Comics without Japan?

Global Manga: 'Japanese' Comics without Japan? by Dr. Casey Brienza

Outside Japan, the term 'manga' usually refers to comics originally published in Japan. Yet nowadays many publications labelled 'manga' are not translations of Japanese works but rather have been wholly conceived and created elsewhere. These comics, although often derided and dismissed as 'fake manga', represent an important but understudied global cultural phenomenon which, controversially, may even point to a future of 'Japanese' comics without Japan.

This book takes seriously the political economy and cultural production of this so-called 'global manga' produced throughout the Americas, Europe,...

This book presents a micro-level explanation of globalization by examining individual global exposure and its influence in the values and perceptions of individuals, contending that individual and personal global experience, or 'microglobalization', is a key variable in understanding how modern mobile persons act and think in ways...

Politics, Identity, and Mobility in Travel Writing

Politics, Identity, and Mobility in Travel Writing by Miguel A. Caba?asThis collection examines the intersections between the personal and the political in travel writing, and the dialectic between mobility and stasis, through an analysis of specific cases across geographical and historical boundaries. The authors explore the various ways in which travel texts represent actual political conditions and thus engage in discussions about national, transnational, and global citizenship; how they propose real-world political interventions in the places where the traveler goes; what tone they take toward political or socio-political violence; and how they intersect with...

Ethnic Stratification and Economic Inequality around the World: The End of Exploitation and Exclusion?

Ethnic Stratification and Economic Inequality around the World: The End of Exploitation and Exclusion? by Anja Ms Eder & Max Professor HallerThe modern world is characterised by pervasive economic inequalities. Strong economic growth in some developing countries has contributed to a degree to a reduction in the levels of inequality between nations, yet inequality within nations remains high and in some cases, continues to increase. Ethnic Stratification and Economic Inequality around the World investigates the reasons for these striking differences, exploring the coincidence and interaction between economic stratification and ethnic differentiation. Drawing on extensive international survey and statistical data, the author develops...
