Globalisation has become one of the most used and encompassing words over the past decade, of undeniable influence in economics, politics and activism. Globalisation is literally all around; every aspect of life is affected by a global structure of communication and economy. This fully revised and updated guide condenses this complex subject into clear, concise commentary. It examines the debt trap, the acceleration of neoliberalism, competition for energy resources, the links between the war on terror, the arms trade and the alternatives to corporate control.

Wayne Ellwood is former co-editor of New Internationalist magazine.

Here is a clear, wide-ranging introduction to the worldwide state of human health. Starting with a brief history of modern medical progress, Shereen Usdin then untangles the knot created by poverty and globalization to show that where you live, how wealthy you are, and your gender all have a bearing on the diseases you may encounter in your lifetime - and your prospects for prevention, treatment, and ultimately, survival. Pulling no punches, Usdin also blows the whistle on the political economy of illness and how keeping people sick means more money for the pharmaceutical, tobacco, and food industries. This No-Nonsense Guide is a must-read for anyone who wants a clear sense of how healthy our global family really is.

This richly creative book, the work of a uniquely original political writer, takes a new look at world poverty. Wealth and poverty are inseparable. It may comfort the poor to believe "the rich are not happy." But is it true? Strong evidence exists that the rich too suffer from the relationship of injustice, albeit in a different way.Seabrook explains the broad effects of poverty, including crime and the fear of crime, the traffic in people and drugs, and the degradation of the natural world. He examines the phrase "A humanity wasted, in one way or another, by poverty or excess." This is not a figure of speech, he concludes. It refers to the costs of poverty for both the poor and the rich.

This book looks at debates about September 11 and the responses to it, but also analyses the causes and contexts of terrorism the world over. The author provides an historical sketch of terrorism, looking at core examples from the Middle East, instances of state terrorism, and the existence of a terrorist fringe to political movements such as anti-apartheid. He guides readers through the moral and political theories justifying and guiding terrorist acts and draws attention to the battle of images and ideas that accompanies them. The book moves away from moral judgements, demonstrating how social analysts and psychologists view the dynamics of terrorism. Furthermore it examines the consequences of terrorist acts for popular politics.

How much how much has life really changed for women over the last decade? Has the women's movement affected women all over the world? Has it changed women's relationships with men?Nikki van der Gaag answers these questions with hard, sometimes disturbing, evidence. Many women have made huge leaps forward--in legal rights, political representation, employment, education, and health. The rhetoric of "gender equality" slips easily off the tongues of politicians. But beneath the surface the statistics are shocking. And men have changed very little. Vivid testimonies from around the world explain why, especially in this post-feminist age, women's rights are still very much an issue--for men and women alike.

Religion is a term which is often used in the media and public life without any clarification. However, it is a word that encompasses hundreds of different beliefs. It is also a loaded word that has a different meaning for each person. Religion can be seen as a source of war and peace, love and hate, dialogue and narrow-mindedness. Today, thanks to the globalisation of communications, more people than ever before belong to a different religious community than their parents. This No-Nonsense Guide considers how religion has shaped culture.
