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 fourth edition guide unpacks the history and complexities of globalization, examining the forces in whose interest it works. And while the global exchange of people, products, plants, animals, technologies and ideas accelerates, the key question addressed is: how can globalization be a positive force for change?
Diagrams, charts and graphs used throughout to illustrate key information.

The New Internationalist brings to life the people, the ideas and the action in the fight for global justice.
The No-Nonsense Guides are the most accessible and enjoyable means for people with hurried lives to find out how the world really works.
For anyone who wants a lucid, factual, reliable guide to some of the most important issues of our time, I strongly recommend you check out the No-Nonsense Guides.
The No-Nonsense Guide to Globalization provides a lucid explanatory map of our current condition. This is a concise and valuable overview of the world system, what has gone wrong with it - and the way ahead.
What motivated the founders of the New Internationalist magazine was a high idealism; a real sense that we could change things; that if people knew the facts about what was going on, then they could actually have the wherewithal to campaign and try to make the world a better place.
New Internationalist supports Fair Trade producers like Mahaguthi Craft with a Conscience. Fair Trade promotes a fair wage and fair working conditions, encouraging developing world producers to help themselves.
A little about Mahaguthi Craft with a Conscience: Mahaguthi Craft supports the development of micro-enterprises and helps disadvantaged producers improve their quality of life in Nepal.
New Internationalist Australia is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization, which means we have to stock a percentage of Fair Trade products, and also adhere to Fair Trade practices ourselves. Great for supporting producers rights, and also for our staff.
