Globalization and Social Change: people and places in a divided world

Diane Perrons|
Routledge (2 April 2004)

'This book provides a rich account of contemporary socio-economic change around the world that paints a complex but critical portrait of globalization's effects. It offers a powerful antidote to both cataclysmic gloom and outright complacency.' - John Agnew, University of California, Los Angeles, USA

Globalization and Social Change has a refreshing new perspective on globalization and widening social and spatial inequalities. It draws on ideas about the new economy, risk society, welfare regimes and political economy to explain the growing social and spatial divisions characteristic of our increasingly divided world. The book combines original argument with a clear exposition of the underlying processes and is illustrated through a series of case studies linking people in rich and poor countries.

Diane Perrons is senior lecturer in the Department of Geography and Environment and a fellow of the Gender Institute at LSE.
