Shawn Smallman, Kimberley Brown, "Introduction to International and Global Studies"
English | 2011 | ISBN: 0807871753 | 416 pages | PDF | 7,5 MB
This innovative introduction to international and global studies offers instructors in both the humanities and the social sciences an up-to-date and comprehensive approach to teaching undergraduates in this rapidly growing interdisciplinary field. Shawn Smallman and Kimberley Brown first present students with the key concepts necessary to understand the intellectual and structural underpinnings of globalization. Thoughtfully building the presentation of core themes–including the history of globalization; economic, political, and cultural globalization; security; energy; and development–the authors examine such timely topics as commodity chains, labor, human rights, and multinational corporations, and provide keen insights into more familiar themes, such as food, health and disease, and the environment.
