Présentation de l'éditeur :

This significant new textbook questions traditional conceptions of Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Caribbean to provide a new understanding of the ‘Global South’, highlighting the rich diversity of regions that are usually only viewed in terms of their ‘problems’. Providing a positive but critical approach to a number of key issues affecting these important areas, the book:

  • examines the ways in which the Global South is represented, and the values at play
  • explores how the South is shaping, and being shaped by, global economic, political and cultural processes
  • looks at peoples’ lives and identities
  • assesses the possibilities and limitations of different ‘development’ strategies.

A timely assessment of the way global processes are perceived from the Global South, the book is illustrated with over sixty colour photographs. It includes a full glossary of key terms, case studies from fieldwork conducted across a range of communities and nations, and introductions to the wider literature in this field.

This is a wonderful new textbook for all students interested in Human Geography and Development Studies.
