Description:

In this book twelve regional chapters, encompassing all of the major regions of the world, provide a global dialogue on globalization. The authors provide much-needed new perspectives on how we should think about globalization, its impacts and forms of resistance and response. By grounding their analyses in the experience of particular regions the chapters reveal the varied meanings and effects of globalization.
