Overview

This volume brings together a group of authors who share a common concern with the effects of globalization on the South. Included among these effects is the accelerating erosion of the social, economic and political significance of the territorial distinction on which the terms South and North are founded. The authors' aim is explicit: to offer a unique perspective on globalization which places the transformation of the South and the renewed global organization of inequality at the heart of our understanding of the global order.

Booknews
Shows that ideas of universality held by international institutions such as the World Bank and the IMF, and inherent in a range of liberalization processes, serve to undermine the possibility of meaningful self-determination for the majority of people in the South. Includes papers on globalization and the conflict between private power and freedom, democratic development in the South, the moral condemnation of the South, universal human rights, and foreign aid and the erosion of local institutions.
