Overview

Education in a Globalized World: The Connectivity of Economic Power, Technology, and Knowledge by Nelly P. Stromquist

Stromquist (international development education, U. of Southern California) seeks to present a more balanced and empirically valid theory of globalization than is generally presented in more ideological versions of the topic. Exploring the interconnectedness between economic and technological globalization and cultural and educational manifestations, he considers both the positive and negative aspects of the phenomenon. He also compares views from the Northern and Southern hemispheres to clarify the particular, differential consequences of worldwide expansion. For advanced undergraduate through graduate level students, social science researchers and educational policymakers. Annotation c. Book News, Inc.,Portland, OR
