Klak, Thomas : Miami University of Ohio
Thomas Klak is associate professor of geography and director of the Latin American studies program at Miami University of Ohio.
"Klak's thinking is original and refreshing....[His] first chapter ["Thirteen theses on globalization and neoliberalism"] is worth the price of the book. ... Whether one teaches or studies suburban U.S. communities, historic preservation in the Islamic realm, or housing markets in China, each thought-provoking thesis lends itself to other important issues related to our shrinking world. Scholars will welcome these insights and instructors will easily be able to draw a lecture out of each thesis. ...[The book] has a master bibliography that will serve as a benchmark in development and Caribbean studies readings for years to come. ...Human geography and development studies are all the richer because of this stellar work."
"A thorough, serious, and scholarly analysis of the impact of recent global economic tendencies on the Caribbean.... For those wishing intelligent and well-documented research and commentary on the micro- and macro-consequences of unfettered economic globalization, including those who support such processes but are willing to consider fair criticism, this collection will be extremely useful."
"A well-organized and well-written assessment of linkages between states and societies in the Caribbean and the internaional political economy. . . . There is a good balance between description and analysis, and the discussion is both thematic and country-specific. . . . This is an academic text with considerable policy relevance. . . . I, therefore, commend it not just to students and scholars interested in Caribbean economics and political economy, but to policy makers and managers both within and outside the Caribbean."
--Ivelaw L. Griffith, Florida International University POLITICAL STUDIES
"This volume provides a thorough, serious, and scholarly analysis of the impact of the recent global economic tendencies on the Carribean."
--J.L. Dietz, California State University Chocie, October, 1998, Vol. 36 N0. 2
"The writing styles of the chapter authors are remarkably clear, and the editor has obviously done his job well in organizing the book's presentation of chapters and editing its contents. It should be considered a must reading for anyone interested in the Caribbean or in problems of economic development elsewhere in the world."
"Klak has put together a great book about the economic development of Caribban states. It respects the diversity of the people and their policies as they respond, both individually and collectively, to their economic challenges and adversities."
--R. Michael Smith, Glenville State College INERNATIONAL SOCIAL SCIENCE REVIEW
"This book is a valuable addition to the discourse on the place of the Caribbean in the globalization process."
--New West Indian Guide
"This volume examines the ways political, economic, and social geographic factors are affecting the development of the region. The book's original approach should be of great interest to geographers, economists, and other scholars who are interested in the Caribbean or postmodern processes."
--Gary Elbow, Texas Tech University
