Globalization and After
While accepting that globalization is here to stay, the distinguished contributors to this volume voice skepticism about the claims of its supposed benefits. Instead, they believe that in its present form globalization is essentially unequal and biased, besides being environmentally destructive. Analyzing the issues from a variety of theoretical and disciplinary perspectives, the contributors address a number of important questions concerning the current form of globalization and its future course.
