9781442605961: Global Issues: A Cross-Cultural Perspective

Global Issues is a pedagogically rich text that offers a unique way of looking at contemporary issues, such as food security and global conflict, from a cross-cultural and multidisciplinary perspective. By exploring each issue in depth, students gain an applied understanding of more abstract concepts like conflict, globalization, culture, imperialism, human rights, and gender, while the cross-cultural approach encourages students to view the world from outside the Western box.

Designed for introductory-level students in global and international studies, human geography, anthropology, sociology, and development studies, this highly accessible text offers instructors and students a unique way of matching the concepts they learn in the classroom with important issues in the world in which they live and work. Each chapter begins with key terms, and ends with probing discussion questions and a list of web links/resources that underscore the key concepts discussed. Suggested classroom activities and assignments are also included to help make the case studies introduced even more interactive.
