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.

Also available in eBook version here.

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.

Professor John McMurtry, University of Guelph, Ontario, Canada

The New Internationalist magazine is the most brilliant advocate on behalf of the developing world. It's a source of information; it's a source of reassurance on ideas; and it has an enormous integrity.
