International Development and the Global South in the Twenty-first Century
Calling increasing poverty and inequality in the Global South (sometimes known as the third world) as "among our most urgent problems today," Thomas-Slayter (international development, Clark U.) seeks to explore the problems of globalization from the perspective of ordinary non-elite people of the South. In this era of rapid globalization, increasing poverty and inequality are creating fertile fields for anger, despair, and violence. This introductory text addresses key political and economic challenges facing Southern countries as they engage with the global system. Through the eyes of ordinary people in the Global South, such as small farmers in Kenya and garment workers in Bangladesh, Thomas-Slayter identifies critical issues that will shape twenty-first century development.
