Summary "It is frequently assumed that globalization has the same features and impact everywhere on this globe, such as the feminization of poverty. Labour and even peace. These ideas circulate in official documents and scientific writings, where they settle practically as truths and become global orthodoxies. this book is about deconstructing those orthodoxies. Moreover, it goes beyond dichotomous thinking of the global and the local, the modern and the traditional and women and men as opposite entities, and focuses on the global/local entanglement."--BOOK JACKET
