Everyday life is now global. We may give money to charity to end world poverty, our family may be scattered across the globe, goods sold on the high street may come from distant sweatshops and we watch news broadcast from other continents daily. Our everyday life has demands that make connections around the world: demands to alleviate poverty, to keep in touch, to consider sweatshop conditions and to identify with those pictured in the news.
Using a series of key examples this original and innovative textbook teases out and interrogates the geographies of such demands. It will be essential reading for students starting out in human geography or politics, and for anyone with an interest in the responsibilities of living in a globalised world.
