This bestselling work is the definitive text on globalization. Peter Dicken provides a comprehensive, balanced yet critical account of globalization processes and their sweeping, highly uneven effects on people’s lives. Each chapter reflects current globalization and antiglobalization debates, the latest empirical developments, and new ideas about the shaping and reshaping of production, distribution, and consumption in the world economy. Of special utility are detailed case studies of key global industries and more than 250 specially designed figures and tables. To facilitate use in the classroom, the figures and tables are also available online as PowerPoint slides.

Review:

"Impressive in the extent of empirical research, Global Shift successfully captures the historical continuities and basic changes marking the world economy. Peter Dicken’s new edition is a vividly written guide to globalizing processes."--James H. Mittelman, School of International Service, American University  "A comprehensive, balanced, thorough, interdisciplinary review of one of the critical issues of our time. A 'must' for anyone interested in globalization."--Stephen J. Kobrin, The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania "Global Shift, Fifth Edition, remains the benchmark for studies of the geography of globalization. In accessible prose, Dicken presents tightly argued propositions about the emerging economic landscape. The fields of international business, economic geography, international relations, and economic sociology can profitably use the book to communicate the fundamentals of globalization. Clear, effective, and engaging case studies are ideal for classroom use. There is no other text with such a broad reach or appeal for anyone interested in understanding the contemporary international economy."--Amy K. Glasmeier, Department of Geography, Pennsylvania State University "Global Shift just keeps on getting better. There is no other source that gives you the full story on globalization in such a fluent and authoritative way. This book is not just recommended, but essential."--Nigel Thrift, Vice-Chancellor, University of Warwick, UK "With this edition of Global Shift, Dicken confirms his mastery as one of the preeminent authorities in the study of globalization. This careful and penetrating analysis of the complexities of a unifying world should prove a seminal text for students, scholars, and policymakers. If you wish to explore beyond 'flatland,' I can’t recommend a better source."--William E. Halal, PhD, Department of Management Science, George Washington University "The fifth edition of Global Shift remains at the top of the ever more crowded field of globalization texts. Peter Dicken is a master of weaving together new theoretical arguments, visually compelling charts and graphs, and insightful industry case studies. If you had to use just one book to convey globalization's promise and perils, this is the book I would recommend."--Gary Gereffi, Department of Sociology and Center on Globalization, Governance and Competitiveness, Duke University "This is the best textbook on the geography of economic globalization."--Petr Pavlinek, PhD, Department of Geography/Geology, University of Nebraska at Omaha
