The fifth edition of Global Shift is now completely revised and updated using the latest available sources. Every chapter has been extensively rewritten to take into account not just new empirical developments but to incorporate new ideas on production, distribution, and consumption in the global economy.
The standard work on globalization provides
" the most comprehensive and up-to-date coverage of economic globalization available
" a clear guide to how the global economy is transformed by: transnational corporations; states and interest groups; and technology
" detailed literature review that explains different theories of economic globalization in the larger context of a descriptive account of newly industrialising economies
" sectoral case studies - with a new case study on agro-food industries - which illustrate diverse processes of globalization
" new material on social movements, governance, environment, and alternative economic systems
Extensive use of graphics, lack of jargon, clear definition of terms, makes Global Shift the key resource on economic globalization in the social science literature
