Book Description:
Subject Scope: Economics, Globalization, Education, International Development

Marginality is often seen as a reflection of division, in which there is an unequal relationship of economic and political power between two extremes. In this way, it is a common thing to find oppositional couples, like North/South, Rich/Poor, Homogenous/Heterogenous, Center/Periphery, Inclusion/Exclusion, Developed/Underdeveloped, and New/Old, in much of the literature dealing with marginality. These oppositions come about out of a socially and politically unbalanced society which is organized according to the differentiation of individuals in a hierarchical, exclusionary fashion. In this book there are 25 chapters, written by 36 academics from 27 universities located in 14 countries and in 4 continents on this fascinating subject matter.
