In order to get more accurate results, our search has the following Google-Type search functionality:
If you use '+' in front of a word, then that word will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry +Potter will return results with the word 'Potter'.
If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry NOT Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
Placing '""' around words will perform a phrase search. The search results will contain those words in that order.
ex: "Harry Potter" will return any results with 'Harry Potter' in them, but not 'Potter Harry'.
Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
Knowledge and Global Power is a ground-breaking, large-scale international study which examines the processes and politics by which knowledge is produced, distributed and validated globally. Identifying how the former colonial nations of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries - the rich countries of Europe and North America - continue to dominate the global knowledge economy, Fran Collyer, Raewyn Connell, Joao Maia and Robert Morrell examine how these institutionalised power relations continue to affect the opportunities and experiences of knowledge producers in both `Northern' nations and the majority world of the global `South'. The working lives of `Southern' researchers in new, socially and politically important research fields, which traverse the disciplinary spectrum (HIV/AIDS, climate change and gender studies), are shown to demonstrate emphatically that `place matters', in ways that will profoundly affect future understandings and discussions of research, scholarship and knowledge itself. But it also shows that knowledge workers in the global South have room to move, setting agendas and forming local knowledge.
