Global Futures : Migration, Environment and Globalization Hardback
Edited by Avtar Brah, Mary J. Hickman, Mairtin Mac an Ghaill
Part of the Explorations in Sociology. series
Providing critical assessment of the 'globalization thesis' through sustained analysis of the nexus of processes underlying social and cultural relations, this book examines, explores, and teases out the many contradictions embedded within different discourses of globalization.
Together, the various chapters in the collection offer a wide-ranging critique of those accounts which represent globalization primarily, if not exclusively, as the classic story of European modernity with its attendant narratives of ostensibly unfettered movement of people, unmitigated economic growth and social progress.
