Global Resource Systems Research Guide

Introduction to library resources and other information sources for students and faculty affiliated with the Global Resource Systems program at Iowa State University.

Global Resource Systems Reading List

This list was compiled during the Fall 2012 semester. These readings are offered by the students of the Global Resource Systems program. GRS students hope that these readings provide you many interesting perspectives in a variety of international development issues, and will also stimulate your lifelong learning and participation in this discipline. Special thanks to Dylan G. Clark for compiling and distributing the original collection.

There are 5 broad categories of book topics: Economic and Development Theory, Environment and Food Systems, Globalization and Travel, Health and Gender Rights, and Politics and History.

Most of the books are available at Parks Library, and in a few cases, an e-book is also available.
