Why have the G8 talks become a major focus for such a huge body of campaigners protesting on a wide variety of issues? Why is free trade not supported by fair trade campaigners? How free are our news media?
This meticulously researched book clearly explains why globalisation is such a threat to our social and environmental (and ultimately economic) future. It also discusses why our so-called 'free press' is overwhelmingly biased in favour of globalisation, despite the massive body of evidence that indicates that our climate and society are in deep trouble.
This book is jam-packed with information, yet it is easy and engaging to read. It is ideal for a both the novice who wants to learn about the issues intrinsic to globalisation and for the well-versed campaigner who wants high quality information to back up their case. Furthermore, and fervant globalisation supporter should test their arguments against the compelling evidence sent out in this book.
