Reframing International Development
Globalism, Postmodernity, and Difference


October 2012 | 328 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Attempts to theorize contemporary globalization rarely stray beyond variations on old themes of superordination. Yet there are many "new definers" of our present global realityùdepletion of strategic resources, degradation of our environment, counter-offensives against modernist patterns of thought and action û which suggest that a new framework of global relations is needed. Nelson Keith, in his striking new volume, challenges the presumptions upon which western notions of the world have rested, and sounds a call to forge a world order more sensitive to all of its representative voices. Situating Interdependence will be of great interest to scholars and students interested in issues pertaining to globalization, irrespective of their disciplines.
