Global and international studies : transdisciplinary perspectives

Synott, John P. (2004) Global and international studies : transdisciplinary perspectives. Social Science Press, Southbank, Vic..


The arrival of the 21st century has thrown into prominence social trends that were emerging in previous decades. It is as if, turning the calendar into the new century, humankind has entered a dimension that is strange and challenged while packed with opportunities and dangers. The impact of these changes is felt at institutional, personal, social and cultural levels.

In every field of work, professionals are encountering these changes and need to respond appropriately to them. Students are demanding an education that will provide opportunities to develop their skills for working in global and International contexts.

This book provides an up-to-date and challenging introduction to global and International studies for students and professionals across a wide range of disciplines. Drawing on perspectives from a number of fields, it introduces readers to an inclusive transdisciplinary framework for analysing the processes and issues of the contemporary change as represented by the phenomenon of globalisation.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
