Unmasking the neoliberal paradox, this book provides a robust conceptual and theoretical synthesis of development, power and the environment. With seven case studies on global challenges such as under-development, food regime, climate change, dam building, identity politics, and security vulnerability, the book offers a new framework of a "double-risk" society for the Global South.

With apparent ecological and social limits to neoliberal globalization and development, the current levels of consumption are unsustainable, inequitable, and inaccessible to the majority of humans. Power has a great role to play in this global trajectory. Though power is one of most pervasive phenomena of human society, it is probably one of the least understood concepts. The growth of transnational corporations, the dominance of world-wide financial and political institutions, and the extensive influence of media that are nearly monopolized by corporate interests are key factors shaping our global society today. In the growing concentration of power in few hands, what is apparent is a non-apparent nature of power. Understanding the interplay of power in the discourse of development is a crucial matter at a time when our planet is in peril ― both environmentally and socially. This book addresses this current crucial need.

About the Author:

Md Saidul Islam is Assistant Professor in the Division of Sociology at Nanyang Technological University.

Review:

"This book has, perhaps for the first time, uncovered ― both theoretically and empirically ― the critical nexus between development, power and the environment."

- Progress in Development Studies

"...will remain an influential and path-breaking contribution in the areas of international development, political sociology and environmental sociology in the years to come."

- Journal of South Asian Development

"The book brings a unique contribution to the scholarship through its analysis of a wide range of
global issues from climate change to terrorism, through the lens of development, power and
environment."

- Journal of International Development


"Overall, the book is very insightful...  the book makes at least four central contributions in terms of: unmasking the critical nexus between development, power and the environment; showing development as a ‘project of power’; highlighting global vulnerabilities, global survival, global sustainability and global social justice; and finally, developing a thesis of neoliberal paradox, a new framework of the double-risk society and a new focus on the Global South."

- Md. Delwar H. Mazumder, City University of New York, Progress in Development Studies

"This book offers valuable insights about the intersections of development, power, and environment. It will be especially useful to those researchers in the fields of environment and development. Graduate students in particular will benefit from its broad literature review. It is an excellent book."

- Luiz Barbosa, San Francisco State University, American Journal of Sociology
