Item Description...
"This book is the best treatment of the complex debate on globalization by a religious ethicist now available. It is indispensable for those who care about public life here and the good life for all." --Cornel West, Professor of Religion, Princeton University
"During the decade between the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 and the Al Qaeda attack of 2001, globalization seemed to have triumphed completely. Since 2001... the mood of inevitability has faded, and a recognition has dawned that globalization entails a range of fateful, even perilous choices. How these choices can be wisely and ethically made is Rebecca Todd Peters's subject in this cogently argued, quietly passionate, and, not least, perfectly timed little book." --Jack Miles, Senior Fellow, Pacific Council on International Policy, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of "God: A Biography."
Rebecca Todd Peters examines the phenomenon of globalization and debates about whether it is helpful or harmful to society. She identifies and explores four competing globalization theories that are essential to thei ssue: the neo-liberal, development, earthist, and post-colonial theories. Within each chapter, Peters pointsout ideological underpinnings, primary constituencies, and moral visions of each theory by exploring itsideologies of "the good life."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Must Read!  Nov 10, 2007
A reasonably in-depth, multidisciplinary treatment of globalization. Peters examines four dominating views of globalization--Neoliberal, Development, Earthist, and Neocolonial--theologically based on a (not "the!") Christian viewpoint. She clearly states her biases as well as her criteria for analysis--democratized understanding of power, care for the planet, and the social wellbeing of people--and then fairly critiques each of the four positions according to each criterion. She does not "pick one" view, but rather suggests improvements to the two that seem to most closely fit her criteria.

Even if you do not agree with her position, this is an excellent example of how theology is "done" and an eye-opening look at some largely unchallenged assumptions of Western society. I plan to read it again soon.
In Search of the Good life  Nov 4, 2007
A typical "beat up on America" but don't offer a workable alternative. Takes a neocolonial position that the poor nations and their people can't make good choices for themselves.Really poor!
