The Moral Mappings of South and North Paperback / softback
by Peter Wagner
Part of the Annual of European and Global Studies series
What is the 'Global South' and where is it? The term 'Global South' marks a new attempt at providing order and meaning in the current global political constellation, replacing the term 'Third World'.
But the term 'Global South' is fraught with many ambiguities. These eight essays explore the possible meanings of this new distinction and assess the advantages and disadvantages of adopting it.
They cast a wide exploratory net, looking beyond the dominant politico-economic meaning to how the way that we interpret the world has changed over time and the wider cultural-intellectual meanings. Key Features Asks whether 'Global South' and 'Global North' are useful for understanding the current global constellationAnalyses the recent global transformation that allegedly made the 'Third World' disappear and the 'Global South' emergeExplores how space is used for different but overlapping purposes: to build socio-political concepts, to criticise recent trends in global developments and to develop a normative angle for collective political actionDraws on global history, conceptual history, comparative literature, social and political theory, political philosophy and social history to develop a full, interdisciplinary picture of the uses of 'South' and 'North' Contributors Jacob Dlamini, Princeton University, USAA.
