Runaway World : How Globalization is Reshaping Our Lives, Paperback / softback Book

Runaway World : How Globalization is Reshaping Our Lives Paperback / softback

Description

'This little book is full of insights about who we are and where we are going.' - Financial TimesThe most accessible book yet by one of the most influential thinkers of our time, Runaway World evaluates the ever-increasing impact of globalization today.

Extending his arguments beyond the merely economic, Giddens shows how our growing interdependence directly affects our everyday lives.

Neither a cheerleading endorsement of emerging markets, nor a fearful rant on the growth of terrorism or loss of American jobs, this is a book about a world that grows smaller every day, and how those changes are affecting our culture, our traditions, our families, and our politics.

Identifying globalization as a true cultural force, this eloquent and important volume is the starting point for anyone concerned about our increasingly interconnected world.
