Contending Perspectives on Neoliberal Globalization

Edited by Godfrey T. Vincent and Joe B. Jimmeh

Paperback ISBN: 978-1-62131-794-4, 256 pages


Contending Perspectives on Neoliberal Globalization uses accessible readings to introduce students to the realities of neoliberal globalization and its impact on the lives of people around the world. The material sidesteps theory to focus on real-world cases that reflect the consequences and implications of globalization.

Students will gain a broad understanding of various themes and perspectives on neoliberal globalization as they read through the three sections of the anthology. Section I provides foundational information through an examination of the history of ideas behind globalization.

Section II focuses on global-national linkages through discussions of the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, and World Trade Organization. It addresses community-based development, and globalization and culture.

Section III details the consequences of global stratification. Topics include the privatization of water and energy, the Bhopal gas tragedy, and Chiquita Banana in Colombia.

Commentary and questions are built into each section, providing context for the material and jumping off points for classroom discussion.

Contending Perspectives on Neoliberal Globalization can be used in classes on international development, and comparative and international politics.
