Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This original collection offers a novel perspective: that of emerging societiesand global inequalities. It is comprehensive yet focused; comparative yet cumulative; interdisciplinary yet cohesive. It presents a range of critical voices fromand about the global South yet cautions that not all countriesand sectors will benefit: only some capitalismsand communities will thrive as the BRICs supersede the dominance of the G-8." - Timothy M Shaw, Professor & Director, Institute of International Relations at The University of the West Indies, St Augustine, Trinidad & Tobago

"A remarkably coherent collection of impressive essays exploring both the opportunities and the dark consequences of globalization. Between them thechapters deconstruct the concept of development, show what it means in different contexts in different societies, and alert us to the dangerous in egalitarian consequences of unplanned growth. A most welcome contribution to the growing literature on globalisation." - Bhikhu Parekh, Professor of Political Philosophy, University of Westminster, UK
