0 Reviews

This book makes a critical analysis of several contemporary debates surrounding globalization. With the help of case studies, statistical data and cogent analysis, it debunks several myths associated with globalization processes. Written for a non-technical audience readership, the author fundamentally questions the viewpoints held by the "hyper-globalists." Singh not only contributes to deepening the current debates on globalization but provides an indispensable tool of analysis for concerned citizens, students, social and political activists, labor unions, NGOs, and policy makers alike.
