- Product Description
- The increasing globalization of economic, social, political, and cultural life is a key feature of the contemporary world. Written by a leading authority, Jan Aart Scholte’s new book provides a concise but broad-ranging introduction to its causes, character, consequences, and implications. Accessible but avoiding oversimplification, the book provides a balanced assessment of how the benefits of globalization could be maximized and its ill effects minimized.
