What Is Global Studies? : Theory & Practice Paperback / softback

Edited by Deane E. Neubauer

Description

What is Global Studies, and how does it relate to globalization?

Responding to this frequently asked question, Manfred B.

Steger and Amentahru Wahlrab provide the first comprehensive overview of this emerging field. Authoritative and accessible, this primer speaks to students and instructors interested not only in key theories but also in applied teaching and learning programs designed to educate "global citizens" to meet the concrete challenges of the twenty-first century.

Linking the influential arguments of major thinkers in Global Studies to their own framework, the authors discuss the "Four Pillars of Global Studies": globalization, transdisciplinarity, space and time, and critical thinking. The book, with instructive appendix materials, will appeal to readers seeking a deeper understanding of Global Studies-one of the most popular fields of study in major universities around the world.
