This book considers how global capitalism affects fragile peace processes in countries suffering under years of violent conflict. While these countries benefit from few of the resources made available through a global economy, they are nonetheless woven within, and reliant upon, the economic and political relationships such an economy demands. By including the work of anthropologists, economists, religious studies experts, sociologists and political scientists, this book presents a broad yet thorough exploration of the complexities of peacebuilding in a free market. "Much of the current research on peacebuilding focuses on domestic factors while failing to take into account both the international political context and the pressures of market liberalization on fragile peace processes," the editors write. "Indeed, what are apparently localized conflicts depend upon resource flows that extend well beyond national borders." Included in the text are specific studies of Africa, Asia, and the Middle East as well as considerations of conflicts on the global scale.

This book, “The perspective of women’s entrepreneurship in the Age of Globalization” addresses the issue of female entrepreneurship development in the context of globalization. The authors take the position that entrepreneurship serves as a catalyst of economic development and globalization process has progressively reduced barriers to entrepreneurship and increased competition in the global market. Namely, important settings of intercountry cooperation in our times are the emergence of the phenomenon of globalization. Like an oncoming vehicle globalization cannot be stopped. However, we can influence its direction and we can prepare to use it as an instrument for improving the conditions of the greater majority of people all over the world. The recognition of the capacity of women entrepreneurs in our global community is no longer a matter for debate. It is our reality that Female Entrepreneurship has been the major factor contributing to the development of many countries. This book brings together a large amount of information on various women entrepreneurship opportunities from different points of view and from different countries and regions. The special value of this volume is the networking of researchers scientists and other professionals and experts all over the world and their participation with the articles based on research undertaken specifically for the book.

This rich anthology offers twenty studies on instances of emerging social justice and women's empowerment in the Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia. These areas are home to huge populations where women's rights have withered under patriarchal rule, and many are beset by civic unrest. The book shows how changes are occurring as flood tides of capital, people, and information erode entrenched gender regimes, giving birth to energetic and forward-thinking women's movements. Highly original, conceptually sophisticated, and imminently readable, this book illustrates how local women are transforming their collective fates by questioning their status, forming alliances, demanding full participation in economic development and the political process, and mining opportunities afforded by globalization.

The editors present, with reference to Africa, an introductory historical overview of the development of globalisation as an economic and cultural phenomenon, and a condition of the modern world; an understanding of which, must shape and control our understanding of economic and cultural development. The presumption of many of the contributors in their criticisms and suggestions of how to harness globalisation for Africa's benefit, is that globalisation is a 'two-edged sword', and source of 'dynamic disequilibrium', because however you regard it, the least economically developed countries are losing in social and economic terms. Half the book is given to socio-economic/political themes/case studies, for example, globalisation and the competitveness of African enterprise; sustainable development and debt; Zimbabwe 1990-1999; and globalisation of the world economy, and a case study of its implications for the Sudanese import- substitution manufacturing industry. The rest of the the book is concerned with globalisation and environmental, cultural, education and gender issues; for example, globalisation and indigenous environmental knowledge in Ethiopia; the westernisation of the role of women in house construction in Botswana; and linguistic nationalism and the discourse of globalisation.

A Thai foodseller on the streets of Bangkok, a cyclo driver in a Vietnamese village, a Pahari migrant laborer in the Himalayas, a Parsi-Christian professional social worker shuttling back and forth between London and Calcutta--Trans-Status Subjects examines how these and other South and Southeast Asians affect and are affected by globalization. While much work has focused on the changes wrought by globalization--describing how people maintain foundations or are permanently destabilized--this collection theorizes the complex ways individuals negotiate their identities and create alliances in the midst of both stability and instability, as what the editors call trans-status subjects. Using gender paradigms, historical time, and geographic space as driving analytic concerns, the essays gathered here consider the various ways South and Southeast Asians both perpetuate and resist various hierarchies despite unequal mobilities within economic, social, cultural, and political contexts. The contributors--including literary and film theorists, geographers, historians, sociologists, and anthropologists--show how the dominant colonial powers prefigured the ideologies of gender and sexuality that neocolonial nation-states have later refigured; investigate economic and artistic production; and explore labor, capital, and social change. The essays cover a range of locales--including Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Thailand, Singapore, Borneo, Indonesia, and the United States. In investigating issues of power, mobility, memory, and solidarity in recent eras of globalization, the contributors--scholars and activists from South Asia, Southeast Asia, England, Australia, Canada, and the United States--illuminate various facets of the new concept of trans-status subjects. Trans-Status Subjects carves out a new area of inquiry at the intersection of feminisim and critical geography, as well as globalization, postcolonial, and cultural studies. Contributors.
