Overview

This award-winning book explores one of the most successful cultures and society the world has ever seen-capitalism. From its European roots more than 500 years ago to the present, the book examines the problems of capitalism's expansion, inequality, environmental destruction, and social unrest. Global Problems and the Culture of Capitalism provides the reader with the anthropological, economic, and historical framework to understand the origins of global problems, why globalization and the global expansion of the culture of capitalism has generated protest and resistance, and the steps that are necessary to solve global problems. As one reviewer said, "This is a book that will doubtless create debate and controversy, but its topic should be pondered seriously by all who consider themselves citizens of our world society today." For anyone interested in global issues and international affairs.

A text for a college course on global problems, focusing on those that students will have been exposed to from mass media. Incorporates the study of the biases that privileged students usually bring to the subject without realizing it, biases that would be strongly reinforced by the media coverage. Illustrated with exceptionally high quality black-and-white photographs. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
