Situating development as a world-historical project, this text traces its contours across three historical periods: colonialism, the development era, and the era of globalization. McMichael shows how the social transformations from colonial subjects, through national citizens, to global consumers have been inspired and managed through successive projects of development, ordering a changing and unequal world. This fourth edition accentuates ecological themes, the gendering of development, and alternative development visions. Updating showcases the paradox of the development lifestyle, ecological footprints, the war on poverty, social reproduction issues, the planet of slums phenomenon, outsourcing, African re-colonization, the Latin rebellion against neo-liberalism, the rise of China and India, and the ever-changing policy face of the development establishment as it seeks to retain or renew its legitimacy at a time when development is perhaps facing its greatest challenge in the ecologically, socially, and politically destabilizing impacts of climate change.… (más)

One of the most logical informed books out there where the author actually has their feet on the ground and gives a frank look at the reasons for the sick state of the world and its poverty. He explicates the history of the ills of globalization in a clear and understandable manner that is not terribly/densely academic.

Great read!

Perhaps I'm bias - he was my favorite professor at Cornell - sin embargo ... it is well worth the read. ( )
