The Globalization and Development Reader. Perspectives on Development and Global Change. 2nd Edition

This revised and updated second edition of The Globalization and Development Reader builds on the considerable success of a first edition that has been used around the world. It combines selected readings and editorial material to provide a coherent text with global coverage, reflecting new theoretical and empirical developments. It provides original texts, including classics in the field and others at the cutting edge, which have been carefully edited for the non–technical reader, and offers concise definitions of key terms and concepts, requiring no prior knowledge about globalization and development or related theories.
The second edition expands the collection of classic texts and, at the same time, provides the most important and readable articles and book selections on recent developments. More than half of the readings are new for the second edition, with a higher degree of editing for a student readership, and with increased coverage of China and India supporting its genuinely global coverage. New pieces help to capture the implications for developing countries of the recent Great Recession of the global North. There is more on global inequality and uneven economic development, as well as on women, international migration, the role of cities, agriculture and the environment, and especially climate change. There is also new material on the ability of labour to organize across borders.
This book is an engaging and illuminating collection that includes a general introduction to the field, and short, insightful section introductions that introduce each reading. It provides an up–to–date primer and core reference source for students, scholars, and development practitioners wishing to get up to speed quickly on the issues surrounding social change, globalization, and development in the "Third World".

...ears what I just heard. I asked him again if he is not making it up, but he said he already purchased tickets online and made plans. On 10th May we departed Maryland and headed towards our first destination, The Big Island of Hawaii. As soon as we reached there after a long journey, I was stunned by the beautiful scenic views that I only saw in pictures. I was totally lost in the scenic views that I forgot to blink my eyes We stayed in the 5-star hotel in front of the beach. Next day we hired a helicopter for a trip to see volcano. It was simply amazing. We stayed in The Big Island for 4 days, and then we went to the island of Maui for 4 days. We did so many activities which included Jet Ski, Scuba diving, Parasailing etc. We also watched the sunrise of Kalekala's summit, it was very romantic. At last one of the best things we did in Hawaii was to drive on the Hana Highway. It was the most amazing and spectacular experience of my life that I was stunned by God's creation of a heaven-like place on earth. This highway has 600-plus turns, 50 one-lane bridges and breathtaking views that alternate between mountain streams and soaring sea cliffs, the Hana Highway is less a roadway than an event in itself. Our journey ended on 18th of May. On our way back we traveled by plane again. During the trip I thought, 'Those days were amazing and unforgettable, I wished if I had more days to spend over there'.My holiday was exciting and full of joy. I enjoyed it immensely. I am......

...Depth and Weight Wendy Reyes Journey into Literature Instructor Alex Vuilleumier August 19, 2013 Depth and Weight When it came time for me to choose a poem to write about I pondered the thought and when I came across “How Do I Love Thee” it was the one that stood out the most that I was most engaged in. It speaks of an unconditional love of a marriage that one woman had for her husband something that every young girl one day wishes to have. In her poem Elizabeth Barrett Browning considers attitudes, actions, and responses that make love (marriage relationships) meaningful on "this side" of death and prospectively infinite on "the other side."(Clungston 2010). The world has always been as rich and varied as it is at this moment. Wealth and poverty, joy and pain, peace and struggle have always existed side by side. The history of human life is the history of each person’s journey from birth to death. When we study history; we are always reading someone’s interpretation or argument. There’s much we can learn from other’s stories. Yet to be fully human is to escape the neat outlines of such a story. We immerse ourselves in life; we are surrounded by it. The poem is considered attitudes, actions, and responses that make love (marriage relationships) meaningful on this side of death. The sonnet is a highly structured form of lyric poetry with different specifications for Italian (Petrarchan) sonnet and for the English (Shakespearean) sonnet. ......

A Journey

...”A Journey” is a short story by Colm Tóibín. It’s written in 2006. The plot is told by a 3rd person omniscient narrator. The composition of the short story is in chronological order with flashbacks. The story begins in a flashback where we are introduced to David’s fear of presence. David is an unsteady boy who is afraid of life. To overcome his fear he keeps asking questions about life and people’s presence in the world. The oil painting, Interior with Woman and Child, on picture 1 by Paul Mathey from 1890 could be an illustration of David – a sad, alone boy who don’t feel secure. Who just stands waiting for the next thing to happen? Mrs. Redmond is taking care of him. David feels safe when he is near her: “Often, when Mary went down to the cottage to collect him, he did not want to come home. But then, once he was back in his own house, he would start to smile again and follow her around asking her questions or, when he was older, telling her what had happened to him at school”[1]. You can tell that he is secure when he is with Mrs. Redmond because he likes staying with her. You can also tell from the quotation above that he looks up to her mother and thinks that she has a large knowledge. He is embarrassed of his stay at the hospital. He can’t look her mother in her eyes afterwards: “… and for a quick second she caught his eye. He looked away”. David’s mother, Mary, has thick blonde hair and a large-boned face. She wants......

A Long Day's Journey Into the Night

...A Long Day's Journey into Night Should “A Long Day’s Journey into Night” be considered an example of Naturalism? Why or why not? Naturalism depicts the realism of events, occasions, life and people. It considers the inescapable force of heredity, social conditions and environment in shaping human character. An intensive analysis of the “A Long Day’s Journey into Night” clearly shows that it is an example of naturalism. This argument is supported by the following facts and discussions. The play has the quality of naturalism evidenced by the unfolding nightmare realities of family life right from the beginning to the end of the play. At act one, Mary, James’ wife is treated from the addiction of morphine and seems to abandon the habit and tries to assume a new life. In some occasions she opted to sleep alone to seek self comfort by avoiding the snoring of her husband. She shows great improvement in health and everybody in the family is happy about her change. Surprisingly, this new life without morphine does not hold long, she is forced by her unhealed addiction and breaks loose into it. The family stress of Edmund bad health, James and Jamie alcoholism may have contributed to her further indulgence into morphine. The fact that one of the family member contracts tuberculosis seems to be anticipated as it is revealed Mary’s father died of it. This case objectively support naturalism, it explains that the disease was passed through...

A Journey

...A Journey “A Journey” is a short story written by Colm Tóibín in 2006. The story follows Mary who picks up her twenty-year-old son David from a hospital. The car ride home is not only a journey in itself but becomes a ride of memories. A ride that through flashbacks shows Mary her journey of life which gets her to start reflecting on the decisions and choices she has made in the past. It is about acceptance. Accepting your life as it is or turned out without looking back and that is the key to start looking forward instead. This story begins in medias res with a flashback. “’Mammy, how do people die?’” (Tóibín, line 1). The flashback is very important since it gives the readers an insight to what has happened in the past and how David’s childhood was like. It also gives the readers the ability to figure out the course of David’s depression which is interesting because his own mother cannot seem to find a reason. She does not want to accept that she might be the reason for his condition and through several flashbacks throughout her journey, she is trying to find another answer. “She tried not to think, tried to keep her mind fixed on the road ahead, but random images of places in the past kept coming to her, and there was nothing she could do to stop them.” (Tóibín, lines 51-53). She puts her focus on old problems she has had in the past, like selling her father’s shop, as if that is going to solve the current problem who is sitting in the backseat of her car. The......

The next day we found eggs in a nest, I made scrambled eggs and carrots. “Good morning, guys a long day is ahead.” “Mmm is that cooked carrot smells great.” So we travelled to this huge door and it had these strange toilet pictures on them. “It says, flush once, twice wise, third…” “What does that mean, Indie?” So we flushed the toilet once and we flushed it again then I cut myself and Indie flushed it and the door opened and there it was the Crystal toilet in the middle. Bugs went in and when he stepped on one it fell down, down, down then bang on the bottom of the ground. “Sugar plums” I said So I ran in and it seems that I’m still alive I retrieved the Crystal toilet and I ran back as fast as I could.

A Journey

...A: A Journey By Colm Tóibín Growing up is one thing; but growing old and accepting the fact that your life is running out, and you are watching from the sideline, that is another. When you are forced to face the fact that the one you have loved all your life, is about to leave you. Leave you to loneliness, because illness has changed him into a personality that you cannot recognize. A person you cannot find it in you to love no more, then you start looking back at your life. You take a journey into your past, travelling through the memories of your childhood, your marriage, of having children and of losing them to adulthood and you end up comprehending that it is time “to let the grey appear”. (Line 157) This is one of the themes treated in the short story “A Journey” by Colm Tóibín published in 2006. There is used a third person narrator with a restricted point of view, in the short story. The narrator, a woman named Mary, is experiencing a tough time in her life. Her husband lies paralysed in bed, and her only son is suffering from a depression. She feels hurt and lonely, because she cannot reach out to the two people, she loves the most. They have both shut her out in each their way. “Your father will be expecting us (...) He will be lying with his eyes open, she thought, and he’ll barely glance at me when I come in. She smiled at the idea that now she would have two of them for company” (Lines 82-84) She feels like her life is slipping away, like sand through her......

A Journey

...When someone asks me what I’ve done with my life, its always the same answer, its easy– Malawi. I had long dreamt of Africa and at the age of 20 I packed my suncream and khakis and off I went.. on a Jumbo from Heathrow Airport. The Journey was a like a taster for what would come before. There were the obvious Malawi nationals, no doubt returning home with stories of lands afar to tell their families, there were toughened looking tanned expat types, and a number of what seemed to be Chinese businessmen, likely to be going to sniff out opportunities for investment. I was seated next to two twenty-something’s, each of us travelling for different purposes. One was going for business, he was working for a company which sold water cleansing machinery, one was travelling to meet his brother who had recently eloped to live with his Malawian wife, and there was me.. going to live in the deepest outset of one of the most untouched and rawest areas in the world – on a whim. I had arranged an internship with an Englishman by the name of Geoff who was doing his best to extend a helping hand to the locals, but this was the only security and comfort I had, and any other arrangements would be made by myself alone. What we did all have in common though, was that we had absolutely no idea what to expect! Touchdown. An hour of queuing for Passport control and Luggage claims and I had arrived. It wasn’t the sweltering heat or the fact that Lilongwe airport resembled more of a disused......

The Journey

...THE JOURNEY The sun slowly rose on Tuesday morning. The bags were packed and at the bottom of the stairs; the cat had gone to the grandparent’s house yesterday, mum and dad were up bright and early. The smell of bacon and eggs wafted through the house. But, to me, none of this mattered; it was 4a.m, I was tired. I had not slept because I thought it would be clever to stay up all night, and being a grumpy stereotypical teenager, I longed to stay in bed until 12 o’clock. It was the holidays for God’s sake! Why should I be up earlier than I am for school? The smell of bacon seeped under the door of my room and over powered the smell of old socks that lurked menacingly under the bed. But still I did not move, it was far, far, far to early! It was the third cry from dad that made me lumber out of bed. Slowly, still half asleep, I got dressed, having to take my t-shirt off once, as I had put it on inside out the first time. I lugged my body into the bathroom and washed my face, cold water trickled down my back giving me icy chills. I cleaned my teeth and then I trudged down the stairs. The smell of bacon became intoxicating as I neared the door, I needed a hit, and bacon was my drug. I slowly ate and took in all the pleasure I could as it was going to be plane food later. Mum rushed manically around the house checking she’d packed everything and nagging my ear off. The taxi arrived at 4:20 am. Still asleep I dragged the bags towards the car. It was going to be two hours......

She wondersif her and Seamus are to blame for the way David has turned out - (p.2 line 28-30 “(…) her mindbegan to slip back until she found that she was trying once again to pinpoint the day it had started,the day she first noticed that David has grown beyond their reach and become sullen andwithdrawn” … “were they to blame, she and Seamus (…)”. She feels guilty for David’s illness.The story starts off with a flashback were David is about 4 year old.

...The Journey to Oblivion and Back Background: I’m 20 years old, male, and a junior college. Outside of smoking pretty often, I’ve done ecstasy, shrooms, and 2c-I, all once and spread out by 6 and 9 months respectively. I read that 2c-c was fairly mild, so I decided to take 50mg alone. This would reportedly give me a calm, easy going trip. How wrong these reports turned out to be. Part I: The Beginning of the End (T+000) Planning to walk around in the woods, I take the self-prepared capsule at around 3 in the afternoon on a Friday. After about 30 minutes, I leave my dorm and head towards my destination. The come up is extremely jarring. Instead of a smooth gradual immersion into the new world, I go from normal, to feeling slightly weird, to being out of my mind, over the span of the next 30 minutes or so. When I realized I was in for more than I bargained for, I decided against going into the woods. At this point, I am having difficulty walking and have to keep sitting down. I get the feeling people are looking at me strangely, but I am most likely appearing normal. Worried and wanting somebody to talk to, I call one of my friends. When I tell him what is happening, he exclaims laughingly to somebody he is with that his friend is on drugs. This is not what I wanted to hear. The words reverberate through me negatively. The body high is now coming into full effect and it is overwhelming. I needed to be with somebody I knew. My friend’s freshman brother was in...

Long Day's Journey Into Night

...Long Day’s Journey into Night: The Perpetual Cycles within O’Neill’s Play O’Neill’s Long Day’s Journey into Night (1956, 2002) is a depiction of the Tyrone family and the ongoing cycle of events that occur within the span of one single day in their life. At first glance, patriarch James, his wife Mary, and adult sons Jamie and Edmund, appear to be the average family in the year 1912, until one looks further and finds that each appears to be in their own version of purgatory, stuck in a repetition of events and behaviors that are both non-productive, as well as destructive. Ultimately, these result in their being condemned to continually relive the worst events in their life with their most unflattering characteristics, time and time again. Yet, in doing so, they not only self-sabotage, but sabotage each other and prevent any member of the family from realizing any genuine relief or finding any true resolution amidst this perpetual cycle, which is essentially foreshadowed by the title, itself. Therefore, from the ongoing cycle of denial and blame, to anger and guilt, to drug use and abuse, Long Day’s Journey into Night is a cynical story that illustrates the seemingly infinite cycles that depict the perpetual struggles that occur within one family over the course of an average day as the light gives way to darkness. As such, the paragraphs that follow elaborate on some of the most prominent cycles within the story, beginning with a discussion of the Tyrone......

The author is unknown at this time. This paper is not intended for the public. This is my way of dealing with the sometimes overwhelming sadness that I face. The Journey The pages of life start out with you lying on your back unable to take care of even the simplest need. All of that is provided for by the parent until later in life when you start crawling, walking, and eventually running through life. My journey began traveling up and down the highways as a child in East Texas working through what was to be my childhood home in the piney woods. It is where I learned the spirit of being an adventuress child. I lived 15 miles outside of Livingston, TX adjacent to or actually just past the run down old sub-division of Indian Springs named for the natural springs there. Many of my friends and even some of my family lived there. I ran up and down those old red dirt roads most of my childhood playing, fishing, and learning all I thought there was to know about being a man. My grandparents lived there and it was where I always loved to be. My grandfather affectionately known as “Papa” was my hero.

A Journey

...While a journey might mean different thing to different people, it means an exploration and discovery for me. It has meant joy and happiness that result from exploration. It is a discovery. It is the discovery of a beautiful and blissful world where the soul remains blissfully forgetful of the real world that I am in. It remains so till suddenly and against my wishes I am brought back. The mind runs to this beautiful world. It wants to go back again and again there …till accidentally and suddenly the flight of soul brings me again over there. This journey is never planned, never prepared in advance even as mind and soul thirst for that journey again. The journey takes me to a dream world. In my dream I often meet fairies and angels. That I should partake of this journey often surprises me. I was raised on rock ‘n’ roll, fast food and subways. I have never ever been to any other culture or learnt any tribal techniques. My daily routine is nothing different from the others – read the papers, take your breakfast, go to work, come back, watch TV, eat dinner, and finally go to sleep. This leaves for no other activity including journey. Nevertheless, the journey I have spoken of just happens any time. There is no fixed time interval after which my journey takes place, nor is there any frequency of the journey that can be detected. It may be several times in a month or once in a month after an interval of several moths. But whenever I take this journey it brings me to an......
