Description

Product Description

In this new Sixth Edition of Development and Social Change: A Global Perspective, author Philip McMichael describes a world undergoing profound social, political, and economic transformations, from the post-World War II era through the present. He tells a story of development in four parts―colonialism, developmentalism, globalization, and sustainability―that shows how the global development "project" has  taken different forms from one historical period to the next. Throughout the text, the underlying conceptual framework is that development is a political construct, created by dominant actors (states, multilateral institutions, corporations and economic coalitions) and based on unequal power arrangements. While rooted in ideas about progress and prosperity, development also produces crises that threaten the health and well-being of millions of people, and sparks organized resistance to its goals and policies. Frequent case studies make the intricacies of globalization concrete, meaningful, and clear. Development and Social Change: A Global Perspective challenges us to see ourselves as global citizens even as we are global consumers.

Review

"The book does a fantastic job of laying out the history of development, and does so by dividing up different development eras into projects. It is packed with excellent and important information. The "case studies" in the book bring occasionally dry issues to life. And I value the book′s overarching attention to inequality at all levels as a way to understand the world." -- Leif Jensen

"I wanted one book that contained everything that I want my students to know. This book contains it all. The historical continuity woven across chapters allows me to teach development exactly like I want to…I like the emphasis on the environment and climate change, and land grabs / land-based investment." -- Cynthia Caron

"The book is very well structured. Difficult concepts are well explained. McMichael makes it very clear what the stages of development are, and brings examples that help students recognize those stages in their own social environment.  While reading, students easily find connections between the theory and their observations." -- Olena Leipnik

About the Author

Philip McMichael grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, completing undergraduate degrees in economics and in political science at the University of Adelaide. After traveling in India, Pakistan, and Afghanistan and community work in Papua New Guinea, he pursued his doctorate in sociology at the State University of New York at Binghamton. He has taught at the University of New England (New South Wales), Swarthmore College, and the University of Georgia, and he is presently International Professor of Global Development at Cornell University. Other appointments include Visiting Senior Research Scholar in International Development at the University of Oxford (Wolfson College) and Visiting Scholar, School of Political Science and International Relations at the University of Queensland. Trained as a historical sociologist, his research examines capitalist modernity through the lens of agrarian questions, food regimes, agrarian and food sovereignty movements, and most recently the implications for food systems of agrofuels and land grabbing. In his work, he has studied and consulted with the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations, the United Nations Research Institute for Social Development,, the International Planning Committee for Food Sovereignty, the international peasant coalition, La Vía Campesina, and FoodFirst Information and Action Network (FIAN). He teaches courses on Political Sociology of Development; World-Historical Methods; Food, Ecology, and Agrarian Change; and International Development.

Very good, detailed, and adequately addresses the complexity of the development amd globalization projects from an introductory perspective. Unfortunately, it is jargon-y and dense, so it is nearly impossible to read if you are truly at an introductory level to the topic. I appreciate the strong criticism of the western project of "development" without overwhelming the text and coming off as anti-western. Having traveled in Africa, I can say it does a good job at getting to the heart of why many countries are trapped in poverty, but it stays too abstract for that to really come through without direct experience with what they are talking about. This is a good book for making sense of what I saw and experienced over there. Not a good book for learning about the problem before hand or for an undergraduate class.

Confused
Reviewed in the United States on June 28, 2019
I got this as a textbook for one of my online classes. It is poorly written and I have no idea what I was supposed to learn from it. Thanks to the horrible writing in this book, I failed the class.

well it was for a college course
Reviewed in the United States on March 14, 2020
so it was as good as a college text book that you didn''t want to but so instead rented for a MUCH LESSER price can be. 10/10 would recommend to rent instead of buy!

This book was vital to my training in global social change and development, and I still find myself coming back to it from time to time. I enjoyed this as a Ph.D. student in sociology and continue to draw inspiration and insight as a soon-to-be full professor. I can''t say that about many books. Alvin So''s Social Change and Development may be the primary counterpart I recommend to this.
