Overview

Munck argues that social exclusion—all the ways people are excluded from the necessities of life—is the social counterpart of globalization, a concept now dominating and driving economic, social, and welfare policy-making. Rather than set pro- and anti- globalization forces against each other, however, he takes what he calls a transformationalist perspective to explore the trajectory of globalization, how it deepens existing inequities of race, place, gender, and class, and how it can instead itself be changed to result in more social inclusion—that is, a more democratic and just global order. Munck, a political sociologist, directs Dublin City U.'s efforts to engage with globalization and social development. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
