Landscapes of Globalization
Human Geographies of Economic Change in the Philippines
Published December 16th 1999 by Routledge – 208 pages
In this critical and sophisticated analysis, Philip F. Kelly challenges the conventional definition of globalization as an irresistible and inevitable force to which societies must succumb. By tracing the consequences of global economic integration in the Philippines, he argues that global processes are constituted, accommodated, mediated and resisted in social processes at multiple scales, from the national economy to the village and the household.
