CAIRO BOOKS's Description
The process of globalization is now the most important factor in world
politics. The current world order is ending but as yet there is no clear
replacement for it. Teach Yourself Globalization is an accessible and objective
guide to this complex and all-important process. It focuses not only on the
economic implications of globalization but also on the social, cultural and
political consequences of this process. Globalization cannot be reversed. This
book considers how we came to be in the position we find ourselves in now and
how our world today differs from that in the last century. It focuses on the
three main 'powers' in our world today - co-operative, corporate and people
power before addressing arguments for and against this process.Throughout,
real-life examples are used to ensure that this book is not purely theoretical
but also brings the issues and arguments to life. It concludes with a section
on where we go from here, since we will be living with globalization for a long
time to come, we need to be sure that it is worth living with. Keith Suter is
an internationally renowned social and economic commentator, writer and
broadcaster. His style and the real-life examples will ensure you gain
essential insight into this fascinating process.
