New Internationalist books and publications

Reviews

'For all who seek to think past corporate slogans to life-responsible government, this is a concise and valuable overview.' - Professor John McCurtry, University of Guelph, Canada.

'These short books supply us with clear, well-written and memorable analyses that cut to the chase.' - Susan George, President of the Board, Transnational Institute.

Globalization has an ever-increasing impact on our lives. It has made the world smaller and brought us closer together yet it can also make us more vulnerable and divided. The crisis caused by the deregulation of finance and banking is a devastating example of the knock-on effects of globalization.

This fully revised fourth edition unpacks the history and complexities of globalization, examining the forces in whose interests it works. And while the global exchange of people, products, plants, animals, technologies and ideas continues to accelerate, the key question that Wayne Ellwood addresses is ‘how can globalization be a positive force for change?’
