Globalization is all around us. From the richest country to the poorest, every aspect of life is affected by global economics and communications. We all benefit...or do we?

This No-Nonsense Guide to Globalization distills the arguments into a clear, concise commentary. It examines the debt trap, the acceleration of neo-liberalism and the “free trade” model, competition for energy resources, and the links between the war on terror, the arms trade, and privatization. It looks at civil society alternatives to corporate globalization and the latest trade justice initiatives.

He worked as an associate producer with the BBC television series, Global Report, and has also edited the reference book, The A to Z of World Development.

Review:

'For anyone who wants a lucid, factual, reliable guide to some of the most important issues of our time, I strongly recommend you check out the No-Nonsense Guides.' Howard Zinn, historian, playwright and social activist 'The No-Nonsense Guide to Globalization provides a lucid explanatory map of our current condition. This is a concise and valuable overview of the world system, what has gone wrong with it - and the way ahead.' Professor John McMurtry, University of Guelph, Ontario, Canada 'A splendid series of pocketable guides to issue politics... rigorously clear.' The Guardian, London

Book Description New Internationalist Publications Ltd, United Kingdom, 2006. Paperback. Condition: New. 2nd New edition. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Globalization is now more than a buzzword, it is all around us. From the richest country to the poorest country, every aspect of life is affected by global economics and communications. Globalization can be a force for equality - more people have access to information that can spread awareness and change lives. But it can also be seen as the embodiment of inequality - the rich world s rabid consumption of resources is at the expense of poor countries, forced to cut costs and corners to compete. This guide condenses this complex world into a clear, concise commentary. It examines the debt trap; the acceleration of neoliberalism and the free trade model; competition for energy resources; the links between the war on terror , the arms trade and privatization. And the new final chapter examines civil society alternatives to corporate globalization, including the World Social Forum, Make Poverty History campaign and trade justice initiatives.
