Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Globalization" has become the buzz-word of our time. A growing number of scholars and political activists have invoked the term to describe a variety of changing economic, political, cultural, ideological, and environmental processes that are alleged to have accelerated in the last few decades. Rather than forcing such a complex social phenomenon into a single conceptual framework, Manfred Steger presents globalization in plain, readable English as a multifaceted process encompassing global, regional, and local aspects of social life. In addition to explaining the various dimensions of globalization, the author explores whether globalization should be considered a "good" or "bad" thing--a question that has been hotly debated in classrooms, boardrooms, and on the streets.

Synopsis:

This work offers a stimulating introduction to globalisation and its varying impacts across, between, and within societies. It is a readable book that contributes to a better understanding of the crucial aspects and dimensions of the developments and transformations that go by the name of globalisation.
