Product Description

Review

A magnificent achievement. Since the publication of the first edition of Global Shift in 1986, Peter Dicken has constructed in successive editions a phenomenal record of the changing geography of capital accumulation on a world scale. This wholly new sixth edition of 2010, is an essential companion for anyone concerned to understand the rapid geographical shifts occurring in the world's economic power relations in these stressful and troubled times
David Harvey
Distinguished Professor, CUNY Graduate Center, New York


A masterful new edition of a masterful text. Once again, Peter Dicken is at the cutting edge of the analysis of economic globalization and global trends. Global Shift is the authoritative text on these issues
David Held
Co-Director, Centre for the Study of Global Governance, LSE


Global Shift, sixth edition, continues to deconstruct globalization to show that distance (economic geography) still matters. Dicken uses insights from international business research to demonstrate that world business activity is more regional than global. Multinational enterprises are at the hub of global production networks and service delivery; they interact with governments and generally act as agents of economic development. In short economic geography and international business are closely aligned in their approach to globalization
Alan Rugman
Henley Business School, University of Reading


I am impressed by how this book continues to evolve. It has opened out to new sectors and new themes, including extractive industries and the environmental implications of a globalized economy. Global Shift is a tremendous resource; it covers a vast empirical range but is always closely attentive to the underlying processes, impacts, and meanings of globalization. Dicken's approach beautifully integrates the economic and the political with problems of equity and ethics - a rare accomplishment. Ideal for undergraduate classes across the social sciences
Erica Schoenberger
Department of Geography and Environmental Engineering, Johns Hopkins University


The premier text for middle and upper-level courses in economic geography and globalization. The sixth edition provides detailed treatment of the current global financial crisis and a thorough assessment of globalization’s winners and losers. It contains entirely new chapters on mineral extractive industries and on the environmental implications of global production networks. Global Shift continues to be a 'must read' for all students of the global economy
Robin Leichenko
Department of Geography, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey



I am among the privileged to read and use Dicken's Global Shift as a reference text for my writings and as an elective text in my Urban Geography courses since its 1986 first edition...Global Shift's sixth edition is a vital text comprehensively reviewing how global economy functions and how enjoyable or unpleasant are its impacts on people and places. In the sixth edition Dicken offers an updated critical analysis of globalization followed by the continuing theoretical, in some respect political, on the debate on its nature, impact and durability. (Baruch A. Kipnis 2014-01-10)

This book is not just about globalization, it is a dazzling explanation of the workings of the world economy.

I have the 4th, 5th and 6th editions of this book. I drop into to it and reread parts frequently.

If you want to understand how the economy is structured, how the power systems work, who does what, why it is that way, how it got where it is and where it is going, read this book.

The book couldn't really identify and explain basic terminologies and concepts not like the other International Business books. The description diagrams, models, and frameworks are too complex, which its applications in the actual business context couldn't be realized.

I bought this book for my friend. He wants to use this for his geography study. He says that he is quite satisfied with the book, and it really conforms to the teacher's and his requirements.
