New book by Saskia Sassen, The Belknap Press of Harvard University Press.

May 2014
Global dynamics have changed since World War II. The past two decades in particular have seen the dramatic intensification in income inequality and unemployment, growth in populations of the displaced and imprisoned, and accelerated destruction of the environment. In Expulsions: Brutality and Complexity in the Global Economy (The Belknap Press of Harvard University Press), Saskia Sassen (The Global City)  takes us beyond the familiar ideas of poverty and injustice as ways of understanding the problems of global capitalism.
