AbstractEn una obra colectiva sobre la globalización, este capítulo describe el modo en que la gran heterogeneidad histórica de los distintos sistemas demográficos está reduciéndose hasta constituir un único gran sistema demográfico global. Para ello los autores emplean un marco teórico propio, el de la Teoría de la Revolución Reproductiva, como alternativa a la clásica Transición Demográfica. La premisa es que las poblaciones son sistemas reproductivos, y no meros stocks instantáneos, de manera que es posible cuantificar la eficiencia con que realizan el trabajo de reemplazar a las personas a medida que terminan sus vidas. La eficiencia creciente de tales sistemas conduce a su fusión global.
DescriptionThe Handbook offers students clear and informed chapters on the history of globalization and key theories that have considered the causes and consequences of the globalization process. There are substantive sections looking at demographic, economic, technological, social and cultural changes in globalization. The Handbook examines many negative aspects - new wars, slavery, illegal migration, pollution and inequality - but concludes with an examination of responses to these problems through human rights organizations, international labour law and the growth of cosmopolitanism. There is a strong emphasis on interdisciplinary approaches with essays covering sociology, demography, economics, politics, anthropology and history.
