Reinventing the city? : Liverpool in comparative perspective( )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 985 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'The City' has always been a strong focal point for critical social enquiry given its undisputed centrality for human life in the modern era. More recently, there has been a surge of interest in the postmodern city, the most popular subject being Los Angeles and the 'global city' - the New Yorks, Londons and Tokyos of the world - cities linked together through flows of finance. This book seeks to redress the balance using Liverpool, a city neither recognised as a 'global' or 'postmodern', as its focus. Although Liverpool is the central theme of the book, it gives an informed comparative overview of the city in a worldwide context. The introductory chapter sets the scene for the various contributions by re-examining the postmodern global city thesis, surveying various attempts at regenerating cities like Liverpool and critically examining attempts and prospects for transforming the city. The following chapters examine in detail the cultural, social, and economic legacy of the city. Particular emphasis is placed on the people of Liverpool young and old, and how they envisage the city developing
Labour worldwide in the era of globalization : alternative union models in the new world order by Ronaldo Munck( )

21 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and held by 892 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Internationally the trade union movement is finding itself peripheralized by a series of mutually reinforcing processes - the ongoing world economic crisis; the uneven transition from an industrial to an information and service capitalism; the aggressive policies of neoliberalism; the collapse of communism and radical nationalism; the decline of the social-democratic or labour tradition - and by a globalization that undermines the nation-state to which union hopes have long been pinned. The editors argue that this crisis provides an opportunity for labour to recover or reinvent itself. They see this in terms of a labour response to the waves of energy coming from the new global social movements (women, ecology, human rights/democracy, and so on)

Marx 2020 : after the crisis by Ronaldo Munck( )

11 editions published between 2012 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 620 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As we approach the year 2020, the question of how Marxism can remain relevant in a constantly changing environment where social movements are spreading across the globe is as charged and important as ever. In this provocative and critically engaged introduction to Marxism, Ronaldo Munck offers an accessible examination of the essential role that Marxism still plays in today’s thought and policies. To do so, Munck analyzes Marx’s theories in the context of global development, the environmental crisis, financial austerity, and feminism andqueer theory, among other ideas and current events. Munck also offers a straightforward report on the state of Marxism in the wake of the global financial crash. Encompassing transformations in both the Global South and the Global North, Marx 2020 provides a thought-provoking guide to Marxist and alternative thought and the action it inspires. --

8 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: How has the role of adolescence, as a life stage, changed in post-industrial Western societies? Although it's clear that there has been a definite change across most cultures in this life stage, the array of ways it has changed is surprising. This issue of The Annals is devoted to understanding how and why different nations have organized the life course of youth - between the ages of eighteen and thirty-four - in different ways and examines the consequences of this reorganization. The project sprang from a yearlong seminar at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences (CASBS), sponsored by the Carnegie Foundation. IT began by mapping out what was known about the transition from adolescence to adulthood and then examining historical and cross-national date on departure from school, entrance into the labor force, setting up an independent household, marriage, and parenthood. While a large amount of date existed, there was little analysis. So a series of papers (most of them included in this issue) were prepared. The objective was to look across the data sets to glean what could be learned from the causes and consequences of different "regimes" of the transition to adulthood. Although there is still much work to be done in this field, this compilation of articles has made great strides toward understanding the how the life stage of adolescence is shaped across cultures and provides a solid foundation for further research
Globalization, migration and social transformation : Ireland in Europe and the world by Bryan Fanning( )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the space of around ten years Ireland went from being a traditional labour exporter to a leading European economy, and thus an attractive destination for immigrants from Eastern Europe and further afield. This produced a singular social laboratory, which this book explores in all its complexity set against the backdrop of globalisation. At once a showcase of the success of globalisation, Ireland became a destination for those displaced by globalisation's effects. "Globalization, Migration and Social Transformation" takes Ireland as a paradigmatic case of social transformation, exploring the reasons for which emigration was so quickly replaced by immigration, along with the social, political, cultural and economic effects of this change. Presenting the latest research thematically arranged around the themes of identity, social transformations and EU and Irish politics and policy, this book offers a rich array of detailed empirical case studies drawn from Ireland, which shed light on the experiences of immigrant groups from around the world and the processes of social transformation. In addition, it examines the manner in which the Irish state and wider political forum relate to new migrants and vice-versa, thus advancing our comparative understanding of how the European Union is responding to the challenge of mass migration. "Globalization, Migration and Social Transformation" makes a strong contribution to the comparative literature on immigration and integration, diaspora and social transformation in the era of globalisation, and as such, it will appeal to social scientists with interests in migration, race and ethnicity, globalisation and Irish studies
Globalisation and labour : the new "great transformation" by Ronaldo Munck( Book )

16 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and Turkish and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first book to offer a comprehensive analysis of labor's worldwide response to globalization. Ronaldo Munck argues that the national period in labor history is decisively over. Now the labor movement is itself acting in a more transnational manner, with workers developing common interests and ways of organizing that transcend national boundaries. Indeed, the trade union movement could play a major role in the regulation of a global economic system now largely out of control
Critical development theory : contributions to a new paradigm( Book )

16 editions published between 1999 and 2005 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In recent years there has been a considerable rethinking of the whole concept of development, including a growing awareness of its gender, cultural and environmental dimensions, and the impact of globalisation. The contributors to this volume seek to extend these debates to a more fundamental level, tackling such issues as the crisis of development as an intellectual and practical project, the need for a break with development as a Eurocentric concept, and the viability of alternative, non-Western forms of development. This thoughtful volume by authors of quite diverse intellectual positions transcends those critiques of development which simply engage in a blanket dismissal of the whole enterprise. Instead they offer innovative ways of engaging with a reality that, despite globalisation, is very much still a dimension of our era."--Publisher description

Marxism @ 2000 : late Marxist perspectives by Ronaldo Munck( Book )

11 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The 'century of marxism' is over but, as French political philosopher Jacques Derrida has put it, 'There will be no future without Marx.' This apparent paradox is the underlying theme of this book. It is not yet another exercise in marxology or, for that matter, in demonology. Rather, it engages critically and imaginatively with Marx's own treatment of what are now key issues - underdevelopment, gender, culture, sustainability. It also examines in a sober way the experience of the self-proclaimed socialist societies in relation to the same topics."--Jacket
