`As a whole, the book is a useful compilation of rigorous academics papers. The contributions by the editor have woven these into an organic whole, rather than being a conglomerate of uncorrelated works on a common theme' - K B S Sidhu, The Tribune

This text provides a comprehensive introduction to the concept of globalization and its challenge to the contemporary study of development.

Part I introduces the theoretical issues and debates surrounding globalization, illustrates the often contested nature of the concept, and considers the implications for the future of development studies. Part II reviews more specific theory and policy implications by assessing the impact of globalization to a number of key areas of study in development studies. These include the environment, gender, human rights, multinationals, and urban development.

An essential underlying theme to the book is whether a seeming transition from development studies to global studies is offering anything new and fruitful for our future understanding and study of development.
