              One of the keywords of our time, globalization' frames how we understand our interconnected world. An ambiguous signifier carrying multiple meanings, the term is usually used to refer to the extension and intensification of social relations across the world. Many works have been ...authored that deal with various aspects of globalization. However, it is surprising that no critical history of the concept has yet provided a historical mapping of its conceptual origins, evolution, and genealogical lineages. This book investigates the meaning formation of globalization' by featuring interviews with twelve prominent academic pioneers of the new trans-disciplinary field of Global Studies, who were central in forging the career of the concept of globalization'. Together with an introductory chapter, these interviews clarify how and why a previously obscure scholarly concept suddenly exploded in the public discourse of the 1990s. In particular, the interviews trace the processes by which economistic discourses of free market economics became the basis for the influential association of the meaning of globalization' with the dominant neoliberal framework of the 21st century. This book was originally published as a special issue of Globalizations.

              Food Provisions for Ancient Rome: A Supply Chain Approach

              The subject of the book is the food supply to Ancient Rome during the period from the early to the middle Empire when the city was at the peak of its power and population. The subject matter delves into the wider supply of goods, such as wood and building products, to add further... perspective to the breadth of the system managed by the Roman administration to ensure supply and political stability. The inclusion of losses as the products travelled to Rome from various points around the Mediterranean proves to be a critical differentiator between this and other studies. For example, it was likely that the wastage in the grain supply as it moved from the farmlands in North Africa and Egypt to Rome were as high as 55 per cent due to the extraordinary complexity of the systems in place. Such losses had a significant impact on the infrastructure and systems required to manage the flow of goods that was made more complex by the long transfer times. A product flow map is developed from the source of supply to the end consumer detailing the labour, equipment and infrastructure required at each stage and painting a graphic picture of just what an achievement it was for the administration to have maintained such a complex system over this long time period.

              Urban Sustainability in Theory and Practice: Circles of sustainability (Paperback)

              Cities are home to the most consequential current attempts at human adaptation and they provide one possible focus for the flourishing of life on this planet. However, for this to be realized in more than an ad hoc way, a substantial rethinking of current approaches and practices... needs to occur. Urban Sustainability in Theory and Practice responds to the crises of sustainability in the world today by going back to basics. It makes four major contributions to thinking about and acting upon cities. It provides a means of reflexivity learning about urban sustainability in the process of working practically for positive social development and projected change. It challenges the usually taken-for-granted nature of sustainability practices while providing tools for modifying those practices. It emphasizes the necessity of a holistic and integrated understanding of urban life. Finally it rewrites existing dominant understandings of the social whole such as the triple-bottom line approach that reduce environmental questions to externalities and social questions to background issues. The book is a practical and conceptual guide for rethinking urban engagement. A timely and much-needed contribution to rethinking the practice of urban sustainability, this book collates connected concepts and principles into an integrated approach for understanding urban areas in local-global context. Covering the full range of sustainability domains and bridging discourses aimed at academics and practitioners, this is an essential read for all those studying, researching and working in urban geography, sustainability assessment, urban planning, urban sociology and politics, sustainable development and environmental studies.
