Unravelling global apartheid

£5.99

Product description

Unravelling Global Apartheid provides a clearly written overview of global problems as well as a vigorous analysis of the underlying causes and strategies for dealing with them. Unravelling Global Apartheid provides a clearly written overview of global problems as well as a vigorous analysis of the underlying causes and strategies for dealing with them. Liberalization of global finance and trade is increasing economic insecurity and environmental pressures throughout the world. In many countries this is producing a protectionist backlash and ethnic conflict. This has disturbing parallels with the evolution of apartheid in South Africa, which was a response by the European minority to growing economic competition from the African majority. Alexander uses the parallels between apartheid and global inequality to provide a wide range of insights into Western dominance of the global economy and international institutions. The author describes the complex process which brought apartheid to an end in South Africa, drawing hopeful lessons for overcoming global inequality. At a time when world-wide ethnic and economic conflict is increasing and a new global settlement is being negotiated, this book warns of the dangers of sectional solutions and offers practical strategies for people to participate in creating more just, democratic systems of global governance.

Excellent pages, minor edge and cover wear.
