Item Description: Zed Books Ltd. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Social Justice and Neoliberalism: Global Perspectives, Adrian Smith, Alison Stenning, Katie Willis, The continuing expansion of neoliberalism and neoliberal economic and social policies into ever more spaces and spheres of life - in the west, the global south, and former 'communist' east - has profound implications for social justice. Despite the number of policies designed to target 'social exclusion', in many communities, people continue to be marginalized by economic restructuring processes. "Social Justice and Neoliberalism" explores the connections between neoliberalism, social justice and exclusion. The authors raise critical questions about the extent to which neoliberal programmes are able to deliver social justice in different locations around the world. It offers grounded, theoretically-oriented, empirically-rich analyses of the links between neoliberalism and social justice, bringing together work that critiques neoliberalism, along with understandings of neoliberalism's material impacts.It also stresses the need to extend analyses beyond the dominant spheres of 'capitalism', to explore the ways in which communities resist and remake capitalism, through processes of contestation and protest, but also through their everyday lives, their economies and their livelihood strategies. Global in scope, it brings together writers who critically explore these themes in the global south, the former 'communist' east and the west, at a variety of scales. As such, each chapter challenges us to ask how the experiences of marginal peoples, places and communities might challenge our conceptions of capitalism and its geographies.

Item Description: Taylor Francis Ltd, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 2nd Revised edition. 234 x 156 mm. Brand New Book. Global economic crisis and the implications of global environmental change have led academics and policy-makers to consider how development in all parts of the world should be achieved. However, development has always been a contested idea. While often presented as a positive process to improve people s lives, the potential negative dimensions of development on people and environments must also be recognized. Theories and Practices of Development provides a clear and user-friendly introduction to the complex debates around how development has been understood and achieved. The second edition has been fully updated and expanded to reflect global political and economic shifts, as well as new approaches to development. The rise of China and India is given particular attention, as is the global economic crisis and its implications for development theories and practice. There are new sections on faith-based development, and the development dimensions of climate change, as well as greater engagement with development theories as they are put into practice in the Global North. The book deals with the evolution of development ideas and policies, focusing on economic, political, social, environmental and spatial dimensions. It highlights how development cannot be considered as a neutral concept, but is entwined with inequalities in power at local, as well as national and global scales. The use of boxed examples, tables and illustrations helps students understand complex theoretical ideas and also demonstrates how development theories are put into practice in the real world. Each chapter ends with a summary section, discussion topics, suggestions for further reading and website resources. Bookseller Inventory # AA69780415590716
