About this book series

    The Global Understanding Book Series is published in the context of the 2016 International Year of Global Understanding.  The books in the series seek to stimulate thinking about social, environmental, and political issues in global perspective. Each of them provides general information and ideas for the purposes of teaching, and scientific research as well as for raising public awareness. In particular, the books focus on the intersection of these issues with questions about everyday life and sustainability in the light of the post-2015 Development Agenda. Special attention is given to the inter-connections between local outcomes in the context of global pressures and constraints.  Each volume provides up-to-date summaries of relevant bodies of knowledge and is written by scholars of the highest international reputation.
