Faced with so much rhetoric and hype about how globalization is changing the world in which we live, it is hard to assess what it really means and what effect it will have on the lives of individuals and nations. This book sets out to make sense of the confusion. Drawing on a wealth of information from historical, economic, political and cultural sources, it offers a balanced assessment of the strengths and limitations of trends toward globalization. Globalization is not an inherently Western process, but one that draws on the experience of many nations and civilizations; it encourages cosmopolitanism, yet cultural identity remains mostly bounded by national and local affiliations.
