About this book

Md Saidul Islam and Md Ismail Hossain investigate how neoliberal globalization generates unique conditions, contradictions, and confrontations in labor, gender and environmental relations; and how a broader global social justice can mitigate the tensions and improve the conditions.

Reviews

“Social Justice in the Globalisation of Production: Labor, Gender, and the Environment Nexus is a well-written, engaging and insightful book by Md Saidul Islam and Md Ismail Hossain on the theme of neoliberal globalization. …Overall, the book is a good read. … The book is an important addition to the literature on gender, globalization and development, environmental sociology, international development, economic and development geography amongst others.” (Regina Hansda, Progress in Development Studies, Vol. 17 (2), 2017)


"A panoramic review of the pathologies of development in the success cases in the Global South. Gloomy but necessary reading." - Samuel Cohn, Texas A & M University, USA

"This is, in my view, the first extensive and truly rigorous analysis of the critical nexus among labor, gender and the environment in the neoliberal globalization today. Deeply disturbing, yet a ray of hope towards social justice; essential reading for all who care about people and the planet." - Syed Serajul Islam, Lakehead University, Canada

"Md Saidul Islam and Md Ismail Hossain's book provides a new look at the critical global issues faced by advocates for social justice. Their book examines the major hubs for migrant labor and the rights of the worker in a global market. The authors are experts in the international arena and postulate on the lasting impact the under-privileged face under an exploitative international market." - Cathleen Jo Faruque, Winona State University, USA

"Islam and Hossain offer a powerful critique of neoliberalism delving deep into the woes and precariousness of the working class, exacerbated by exploitative gender relations and environmental destructions. This empirically rich, theoretically sophisticated, and well-argued book gives a unique insight into the central dynamics of the globalization of production today. A must-read for those interested in international development, environmental and gender studies, and social justice." - Hira Singh, York University, Canada

"Gross violation of human rights and continued non-compliance to international covenants and statutes in globalized manufacturing industries is a serious concern that is often overlooked. The authors of this book capture important aspects and provide an analytical framework of human rights to ensure social justice in globalized garments manufacturing industries. This book will be especially relevant to those who are working intensely to address inhumane work environments in so-called sweatshops, and social inequities locally and globally." - Golam M. Mathbor, Monmouth University, USA
