9780205917655: Global Problems and the Culture of Capitalism (6th Edition)

Examines the development and impact of capitalist culture

 

From its roots more than 500 years ago to the present day, capitalism expanded from Western Europe to the United States and then to much of the rest of the world. This expansion has not gone uncontested; resistance has been both direct and indirect, including political, religious, and social protest, and even revolution. How and why capitalist culture developed and the reasons why some groups resisted and continue to resist its development are among the issues explored in Global Problems and the Culture of Capitalism, 6/e.

About the Author:

Richard Robbins received his Ph.D. in anthropology from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and has spent his entire teaching career at the State University of New York at Plattsburgh.  Some of his most formative academic experiences include field research among Cree, Inuit and Naskapi First Nations peoples of Canada, Acadian farmers and fisherfolk in New Brunswick, Canada, and among religious communal societies in the United States.  A research semester at the Science Studies Unit at the University of Edinburgh would count as one of his most stimulating intellectual experiences. 

 

He has received the State University of New York’s Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Teaching and the American Anthropological Association/McGraw-Hill Teacher of the Year Award.  He appeared also in the hit anti-globalization documentary, The Yes Men.  He is currently SUNY Distinguished Teaching Professor at Plattsburgh, and maintains a global problems website at www.plattsburgh.edu/legacy and a general website at faculty.plattsburgh.edu/richard.robbins.  He can be contacted by email at richard.robbins@plattsburgh.edu.

 

Review:

“A must-read for anyone hoping to even begin to comprehend the complexities and underlying bases of the modern world.”

        - James Sewastynowicz, Jacksonville State University

 

“Frankly, I am not familiar with a book similar to this one in its scope, readability, or focus. Overwhelmingly my students find it to be appropriate and interesting.”

        - Miguel Vasquez , Northern Arizona University

 

“Robbins does a nice job of integrating the problems of hunger with the issues of a capitalist economy.”

        - George Esber, Miami University Middletown

 

“. . . I think the organization works really well. I like that it is organized according to the dynamics of capitalism, its affects across the globe, and finally responses and challenges to it. I especially like that the book ends with a chapter on citizen-activism. I like the writing style. It is friendly, up-beat, not mechanical.”

        - Suzanne Scheld , California State University, Northridge
