A succinct and accessible introduction to key debates on globalization
Preface.- Introduction.- When did Globalization Begin?.- Global Patterning: Systems, Structures, Fields, Networks, Webs and Flows.- Globalization and the Transformation of Space and Time?.- Global, National, Regional and Local: Competing or Inter-dependent?.- Global Civil Society.- Globalization and its Discontents.- Conclusion.- Bibliography.
This book offers a clear and concise account of the key debates in the globalization literature, serving as an accessible introduction to students new to the topic. It deals even-handedly with all the various dimensions of globalization - political, economic, social and cultural - and particularly draws attention to the role of people in processes of globalization. The book's historical dimension and its multicultural focus ensure that globalization is shown neither to be an inexorable process nor one that can be equated simply with Westernization.
