Globalization and the Race for Resources (Themes in Global Social Change)

by

Globalization and the Race for Resources (Themes in Global Social Change) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This examination into the nature of globalization explores the sequence of trade-dominant economies — Portugal, the Netherlands, Holland, Britain, the United States, and Japan, showing how each nation became a global power by devising technologies, social and financial institutions, and markets to enhance its access to raw materials.

Synopsis:

Globalization and the Race for Resources explores how five nations — Portugal, the Netherlands, Britain, the United States, and Japan — achieved trade dominance by devising technologies, social and financial institutions, and markets to enhance their access to raw materials.

Through ecological and economic explanation of resource extraction and production, Stephen G. Bunker and Paul S. Ciccantell reveal globalization as the result of the progressive extension of systematically integrated material processes across cumulatively greater space. Drawing from extensive historical research into how economic and environmental dynamics interacted in the extraction of different materials in the Amazon, especially in the development of the iron mine of Carajas, the authors also illustrate the profound connection between global dominance and control of natural resources.
