9781405110914: Geographies of Globalization: A Critical Introduction

Exploring a wide range of issues, from the integration of the world economy to how contemporary processes are shaping and shaped by nation-states and how workers are organizing transnationally in response to transformations in the planet’s economic geography, Geographies of Globalization is a critical examination of what has become the leitmotif of our contemporary world.

  • Challenges neoliberal assumptions on the nature of globalization
  • Provides a conceptual overview of how globalization is a spatial process and of its relation to capitalism
  • Explores whether we are in fact living in a more ‘globalized’ world or only in a more ‘internationalized’ one
  • Considers arguments concerning whether ‘globalization’ is a new phenomenon or simply the latest manifestation of processes many hundreds of years in the making
  • Focuses on how nation-states have shaped, and been shaped by, contemporary processes of ‘globalization’, how ‘globalization’ has been imagined discursively, and how workers are responding to such processes
  • Explores how workers are creating new organizing strategies in response to ‘globalization’

From the Back Cover:

Challenging such neoliberal assumptions as the ‘death of distance’ and suggestions that geography no longer matters within a shrinking globe, Geographies of Globalization is a critical introduction to the concepts and realities surrounding what has become the leitmotif of our contemporary world.

The book shows that whatever else they may be, the contemporary processes that are impacting on the world economy and which are variously represented as ‘globalization’ and/or ‘internationalization’ are fundamentally geographical processes, for they are tying the planet together in new and different ways.

Exploring a wide range of issues, from the integration of the world economy to how contemporary processes are shaping and shaped by nation-states and how workers are organizing transnationally in response to on-going transformations in the planet’s economic geography, Geographies of Globalization illuminates the many, often contradictory, facets of globalization.
