MetadataShow full item record
This PhD thesis examines the process of uneven global development during the period 1950 to 2010. The examination encompasses a multidimensional analysis, incorporating economic, social, environmental and political factors. The principles of political economy are employed to scrutinize ‘stylized facts’ at global, regional, national and sub-national level. The study’s results hint at the changes in social, environmental and political factors that accompanied the economic institutions of globalization and neoliberalism.
