Preoccupation with the `global' is an emblematic feature of our time. While much of the literature is stronger on hype than on reality, the totally revised and updated Third Edition of Global Shift takes a more balanced view of globalization. It identifies both the massive changes that continue to transform the world economy and affect local communities across the globe, and the complex processes involved. It focuses on the interrelated actions of transnational corporations and states within a volatile technological environment. Richly illustrated with more than 200 specially designed figures and tables, this bestselling cross-disciplinary book provides a unique approach to one of the key issues of the new millennium.
