about this item

US contributors in sociology and cultural anthropology examine how globalization has influenced the lives of people and the action of states, in the Global South and elsewhere, and how people and states have in turn influenced the trajectory of globalization through state policy, social movements, and novel forms of accommodation to the global economy. The opening chapter introduces theories on macro structures of globalization, states, and citizen action. Chapters in Part 1 present case studies of globalizing states. Some specific topics include palm oil expansion in Indonesia and industrial maize farming in Turkey. Part 2 looks at globalizing citizens, addressing areas such as racial neoliberalism in Coast Rican tourism, and rural gentrification and regional tourism in Appalachia. Chapters originated at the 2014 Conference of the International Social Theory Consortium, held at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville. The book is distributed in North America by Turpin Distribution. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
