Development and Social Change is a richly described and well written survey of change in the post-1950 period. Filled with case studies, this text makes the intricacies of globalization concrete, meaningful, and clear for students and moves them away from simple social evolutionary views, encouraging them to ponder social change, development, and global inequalities.

At the same time this development is contested, and I am also examining the rise of alternative, multi-functional conceptions of agriculture, championed by local food movements and food sovereignty coalitions across the world. Outreach and Extension Focus.

McMichael, Philip (ed) 2010. Contesting Development: Critical struggles for social change. Summary of assignments There are three main assignments for this course. 1) weekly reading responses are due by 6pm the day before class. His concept of governmentality elaborates the complex forms and relations of domination in modern society, and the strategies and practices by which governments create subjects.

At a time when the development promise is increasingly in question, with dwindling social gains, the vision of modernity is losing its legitimacy and coherence. This moment is observable through the lens of critical struggles of those who experience disempowerment, displacement and development contradictions.

In this book, case studies serve as an effective means of teaching key concepts and theories in the sociology of development. This collection of cases, all original, never previously published and with framing essays by Phillip McMichael, has been written with this purpose in mind.

An important additional feature is that the book as a whole reveals the limiting assumptions of development and suggests alternate conditions of possibility for social existence in the world today. In that sense, the book pushes the boundaries of "thinking about development" and makes an important theoretical contribution to the literature.
