21st century globalization: illusions of global economic prosperity yet the reality of poverty -- Globalization, ecocide and the lethal threats against indigenous peoples -- Unjust globalization and the acute marginalization of poor women in the world -- Unjust globalization and unfair justice against the poor: lethal racism, expanded incarceration, law enforcement violence and punishment over education -- Globalization's intensification of global warming and climate change.
"This volume examines the many pitfalls of globalization from the perspective of impoverished and indigenous peoples, including the widening wealth gap, the struggle for restoration of dispossessed lands and cultural rights, global warming and ecological annihilation, and the experiences of women in underdeveloped regions who receive little benefit from their labor and are subject to violence."--Publisher information.
