Globalization: A Critical Introduction
St. Martin's Press, 2000 - 361 pages
The increasing globalization of economic, social, political and cultural life is a key feature of the contemporary world. Jan Aart Scholte provides a concise but broad ranging introduction to its causes, character, consequences and implications. Accessible but seeking to avoid oversimplification, the book provides a balanced assessment of how the benefits of globalization could be maximized and its ill effects minimized.
