Summary Attempts to theorize contemporary globalization rarely stray beyond variations on old themes of superordination versus subordination. Yet there are many "new definers" of our present global reality - depletion of strategic resources, degradation of our environment, counter-offensives against modernist patterns of thought and action - which suggest that a new framework of global relations is needed. Nelson W. Keith, in his striking new volume, challenges the presumptions upon which western notions of the world have rested and sounds a call to forge a world order more sensitive to all of its representative voices. Reframing International Development will be of great interest to scholars and students interested in globalization issues, irrespective of their disciplines.
