This volume examines contemporary globalization debates in an accessible fashion, offering a clear guide to one of the most important issues of our time. In so doing, it does not take one particular stance; rather it explores the arguments and evidence. After introducing the main theoretical positions that have been developed through academic research, different chapters look at the changing forms of communication and culture industries, trade patterns, and financial flows of the world economy, characterized by inequalities as well as opportunities for greater participation.
From the Publisher:

Today's news media is full of references to 'globalization' - a buzz word that is quickly becoming ubiquitous. But what exactly is globalization? What are its main driving forces? Does it truly embrace all aspects of our lives, from economics to cultural developments?

A Globalizing World? examines these and other key questions in a highly accessible fashion, offering a clear and intelligent guide to the big ideas and debates of our time. In doing so, it does not take one particular stance for or against globalizaton; rather, it examines the arguments and evidence about its nature, form and impact.

After introducing the main theoretical positions of those who have studied the subject, key chapters look at the changing form of modern communication and cultural industries, trade patterns and financial flows of the world economy, and whether or not the 'new political world order' is qualitatively different from the old state system. This is essential reading for all students of politics, economics and international relations.
