Globalization and autonomy.
"This innovative collection examines how Indigenous peoples in various contexts have thought about, and responded to, the pressures of globalization on their cultural, political, and geographical authonomy." "The passage of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples in 2007 focused attention on the ways in which Indigenous peoples are adapting to the pressures of globalization and development. This volume extends the discussion by presenting case studies from around the world that explore how Indigenous peoples are engaging with and challenging globalization and Western views of autonomy. Taken together, these insightful studies reveal that concepts such as globalization and autonomy neither encapsulate nor explain Indigenous peoples' experiences."--BOOK JACKET.
