CAIRO BOOKS's Description
This sixth edition of Global Shift has been completely revised and updated
using the latest available sources. Each chapter has been extensively rewritten
and new chapters introduced to take account of recent empirical developments,
new ideas on production, distribution, and consumption in the global economy
and the implications of the global financial crisis. The now standard work on
economic globalization provides: / the most comprehensive and up-to-date
explanation of economic globalization available, examining the role of
transnational corporations, states, labour, consumers, and organisations in
civil society and the power relations between them / a clear guide to how the
global economy is being transformed through the operation of global production
networks involving transnational corporations, states and interest groups and
technology / detailed discussion of different theories of economic
globalization / a new chapter on the environmental impacts of globalizing
processes / extended discussion of problems and institutions of global
governance in the context of the global economic crisis and of the role of
corporate social responsibility / broadened sectoral case studies including a
new case study on resource-extractive industries, and an extended chapter on
financial and advanced business services The extensive use of graphics, lack of
jargon and clear definition of terms, makes Global Shift the key resource on
economic globalization in the social science literature.
