New Pb 499 pp.
Subject: Social Studies
Condition: Good
Published: 2012

This book examines the contested meanings of globalisation – moving beyond the conventional distinctions between the global and the local, the universal and the particular, the East and the West – to assess how social knowledge is being made and re-made along more critical trajectories. Other essays offer striking accounts of how significant actors have framed a range of worldviews: colonial cosmopolitans, organic intellectuals, state elites, indigenous communities, rural women, pop culture audiences, filmmakers, novelists, students of Islam and political activists. In doing so the authors present a critical genealogy of social-scientific and related forms of knowledge, of the social world. Social Science and Knowledge in a Globalising World will be essential reading for students and general readers of anthropology, contemporary history, cultural studies, development studies, politics, religious studies and social theory.

This book is birthed by a transnational cast of  multidisciplinary thinkers engages with how others have conceived and created knowledge of the social world, from the late colonial period through to the contemporary era. These include :
