Synopsis: "A magnificent achievement. Since the publication of the first edition in 1986, Peter Dicken has constructed in successive editions a phenomenal record of the changing geography of capital accumulation on a world scale... An essential companion for anyone concerned to understand the rapid geographical shifts occurring in the world's economic power relations in these stressful and troubled times." - David Harvey, Distinguished Professor, CUNY Graduate Center, New York "A masterful new edition of a masterful text. Once again, Peter Dicken is at the cutting edge of the analysis of economic globalization and global trends. Global Shift is the authoritative text on these issues." - David Held, Co-Director, Centre for the Study of Global Governance, LSE "Covers a vast empirical range but is always closely attentive to the underlying processes, impacts, and meanings of globalization. Dicken's approach beautifully integrates the economic and the political with problems of equity and ethics - a rare accomplishment. Ideal for undergraduate classes across the social sciences." - Erica Schoenberger, Department of Geography, Johns Hopkins University This sixth edition of Global Shift has been completely revised and updated using the latest available sources. Each chapter has been extensively rewritten and new chapters introduced to take account of recent empirical developments, new ideas on production, distribution, and consumption in the global economy and the implications of the global financial crisis. This now standard work on economic globalization provides: The most comprehensive and up-to-date explanation of economic globalization available, examining the role of transnational corporations, states, labour, consumers, and organizations in civil society and the power relations between them A clear guide to how the global economy is being transformed through the operation of global production networks involving transnational corporations, states and interest groups and technology Detailed discussion of different theories of economic globalization A new chapter on the environmental impacts of globalizing processes Extended discussion of problems and institutions of global governance in the context of the global economic crisis and of the role of corporate social responsibility Boadened sectoral case studies including a new case study on resource-extractive industries, and an extended chapter on financial and advanced business services. The extensive use of graphics, lack of jargon and clear definition of terms, makes Global Shift the key resource on economic globalization in the social science literature.
