Globalization: A Very Short Introduction Paperback
Part of the Very Short Introductions series
'Globalization' has become one of the defining buzzwords of our time - a term that describes a variety of accelerating economic, political, cultural, ideological, and environmental processes that are rapidly altering our experience of the world.
It is by its nature a dynamic topic - and this Very Short Introduction has been fully updated for a third edition, to include recent developments in global politics, the global economy, and environmental issues.
Presenting globalization in accessible language as a multifaceted process encompassing global, regional, and local aspects of social life, Manfred B.
Steger looks at its causes and effects, examines whether it is a new phenomenon, and explores the question of whether, ultimately, globalization is a good or a bad thing.
