Globalization and the South

  • Caroline Thomas
Part of the International Political Economy Series book series (IPES)


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. Our 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. This chapter outlines some of the main arguments of the book and draws some conclusions for global politics as we enter the twenty-first century.
