Summary
    The Global Social Change Reader: Development in an Unequal World explores development, globalization, and inequality within and between countries. This introductory anthology gives readers an overview of social change since World War II ��� change driven by public and private sector agents at the international, national, and local levels.

    The book is organized into five main sections. These cover developmental indicators, theories and critiques, the colonial and decolonization periods, institutions and sectors of development, views on prospects and progress, and specialized topics such as the environment, gender, health, and population.

    Readers will learn about theory, policy, and practices as viewed through diverse perspectives from academics and practitioners in the field. The Global Social Change Reader is well-suited to introductory courses in sociology, political science, and international relations.
    The Second Edition will be published Spring 2022.
