Summary

Global Problems: The Search for Equity, Peace, and Sustainability examines the various dimensions of globalization and the social problems of inequality, war and violence, and environmental sustainability that are occurring on a global scale. Clear writing and vivid, current examples help readers to better understand their roles as global citizens. The book is divided into three parts: Part I focuses on the challenges of global inequalities: in life chances, wages and work, gender and education. Part II focuses on conflict and violence at all levels: from crime to politics, terrorism to war. Part III focuses on the issue of sustainability and the problems of urbanization, crowding, and environmental destruction.
