About the Book :
This book, running into two volumes, attempts to examine the problems of the politics of globalization and local identities, generally underpinned by the interplay between issue-driven conflicts and strategic reconciliations. Volume One, Disquieting Divides: Politics of the Self and the Other, addresses the issues concerning poverty, economic injustice, technological innovations, terrorism and the role of alternative microfinance in social capital building and poverty alleviation. Taking a close look at the globalization process in South Asia, it also discusses at length the moral dilemmas of globalization, economic empowerment and engagement, social impact assessment and the feminist critique of contemporary medical practice using child birth. The Second volume, Sustainable Development and Inclusive Growth, also examines related issues and concerns.
