Globalization can be a force for equality - there's more access to information that can spread awareness and change people's lives. But it can also be seen as the embodiment of inequality - the rich world's rabid consumption of resources comes at the expense of poor countries, forced to cut costs and corners to compete.

This fully revised and updated No-Nonsense Guide distills the complexities into an easy-to-grasp commentary. It examines the debt-trap; the acceleration of neoliberalism and the 'free trade' model; the links between the 'war on terror', the arms trade and privatization. And the final chapter examines civil society alternatives to corporate globalization, including the World Social Forum, Make Poverty History campaign and trade justice initiatives.
Diagrams, charts and graphs used throughout to illustrate key information.
