ANNOTATION

Today's Globalization is a popular education toolkit. Project South is a broad-based, community-driven membership organization that develops popular political and economic education and action research for organizing and liberation. It develops indigenous popular educators and movement leaders from grassroots and scholar-activist backgrounds, bringing them together on the basis of equality to engage in building a bottom-up movement for social and economic justice. This is the second edition of this toolkit; the original was published in 2002. It concerns itself with the increasing connectivity amongst world communities in the face of rapid social and economic expansion. The toolkit was designed for grassroots organizations, local community members, scholar-activists, students, young people, and anyone else who wants to learn more about globalization and provide a workshop on how the issues of Globalization affect us in our local communities. The toolkit is divided into the following sections: An Analysis of Globalization Today; What is Popular Education; Lessons Learned from History; Workshop on "Today's Globalization;" Workshop Handouts, and Other Resources. It is clear that the manual provides not only a historical and informational background on issues relating to globalization and popular education, but also gears itself towards the further expansion of knowlegde with activities and workshop facilitation. At the end of the book, readers will find a fold-out timeline documenting key events in the last century of "Economic History," "Government Policy History," and "Popular Movement History."
