"As we enter the 21st century, we inherit a world of unprecedented wealth, but also one of unparalleled inequality; never before has so much been in the hands of so few. Like wealth, some of these inequalities are 'conventional' - present through history, though amplified in the contemporary world. Others are entirely new, borne of mankind's newfound ability to shape and influence their biosphere - creating new patterns of privilege, new trends in suffering" Global Sociology is a primer on a range of issues underpinning inequality and world development. It draws sociology's ability to throw light on issues by connecting dots; between peoples, geographies, economics, politics, ecologies and cultures. It caters for Sociology units (AQA and WJEC), and is relevant to students of World Development, Economics, Geography and Politics. The author is an experienced teacher, with academic interest in the ethics of global inequality, and the teaching development and environmental issues.
