Covering economic, political, and technological forces 5 April 2004
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Now in a revised and expanded fourth edition, Global Shift: Reshaping The Global Economic Map In The 21st Century by Peter Dicken (Professor of Economic Geography, University of Manchester, United Kingdom) is a solid 640-page text on the phenomena of globalization in the modern age. Covering economic, political, and technological forces that affect local communities in uneven ways, Global Shift provides detailed case studies of crucial global industries, more than 200 updated figures and tables, and well serves to broaden and illustrate the critical points toward understanding the world's economic future. This is an ideal text for classroom instruction and recommended to the attention of non-specialist general readers with an interest in understanding the complexities of global economics.

The book's got good graphs 23 July 2007
By Walt Steinbeck - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Check out the graphs, they're worth browsing through and possibly citing in a research report, but the book is not very readable. Use this book as a resource, but I wouldn't recommend reading it for pleasure. It is bland, and I found myself often checking to see how many more pages there were left in the chapter until I could go to bed... and the pages with pictures and graphs made me happy because I knew that I could speed through those and get finished faster. I read this in graduate school while taking a course on international trade. The professor was practically a communist and he swore by the book (not that it has any bearing on my rating.
