Have you seen the full range of No-Nonsense Guides?
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.

The New Internationalist brings to life the people, the ideas and the action in the fight for global justice.
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.
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 Guides are the most accessible and enjoyable means for people with hurried lives to find out how the world really works.
If you would like to know something about what's actually going on, rather than what people would like you to think was going on, then read the New Internationalist.
At New Internationalist we believe that equality improves life in every way, and that when people come together to confront injustice - be it social, environmental or economic - wonderful things can happen. New Internationalist is part of a global movement, forging ties and framing the arguments for genuine change.
Think of any of the great global issues that confront us: the arms trade, terrorism, globalisation, poverty, climate change ... Where do you turn for an analysis that isn't tainted by Big Money or Big Politics? There's no better place than the New Internationalist magazine for an informed and independent view. The New Internationalist magazine is available in digital + print bundle subscriptions, digital-only and print-only.
