Globalization And Neoliberalism from the Author: Thomas Klak. How do recent trends toward globalization affect the Caribbean, a region whose suppliers, production, markets, and politics have been globalized for centuries? What is the status of neoliberal development policy in the Caribbean, where the rewards for belt tightening and economic opening have been slow in coming? How have Caribbean policy makers and citizens responded to and resisted the pressures to conform to the new rules of the global economy? Focusing these questions through the lens of political economy, the contributors of this volume explore the interaction among development, trade, foreign policy, the environment, tourism, gender relations, and migration in the Caribbean. With its global implications, this book will be invaluable to students and scholars from all disciplines who are concerned with the impact of development and globalization.
