Review

"The No-Nonsense Guide to Globalization provides a lucid explanatory map of our current condition. This is a concise and valuable overview of the world system, what has gone wrong with it - and the way ahead." Professor John McMurtry, University of Guelph, Ontario, Canada

From the Back Cover

'For as long as I have been writing about North-South issues - and that's longer than I care to remember - the New Internationalist has been there with pungent, pithy, probing, political analysis. Now they've had the bright idea to encapsulate some of their accumulated wisdom in the No-Nonsense Guides. You can't go wrong - I personally intend to order the whole series.' Susan George, Associate Director of the Transnational Institute and author of The Debt Trap and The Lugano Report.

'The No-Nonsense Guides are the most accessible and enjoyable means for people with hurried lives to find out how the world really works.' George Monbiot environmental campaigner and author of Captive State.

'This book is a lucid explanatory map of our current condition. For all who seek to think past corporate slogans to life-responsible government, The No-Nonsense Guide to Globalization is a concise and valuable overview of the world system, what has gone wrong with it - and the way ahead.' Professor John McMurtry, University of Guelph, Ontario, Canada.

Globalization: it's a buzzword you can't escape. But what on earth does it mean? For some it's the ticket to a democratic world of instant communications and global prosperity. While for others it's a money-mad juggernaut, spinning wildly out of control, threatening both cultural and biological diversity.

The complex entanglement of cultures and economies has been growing since the colonial era and even before. So today commercial culture and the Western consumer model have seeped into every corner of the globe while gaps in wealth, food security and social provision continue to grow.

This No-Nonsense Guide to Globalization traces the journey towards a 'borderless world'. And in the process it shows that the promise of globalization is seductive, powerful - and ultimately hollow.

The No-Nonsense Guide to Globalization is one in a series by New Internationalist Publications Ltd and Verso. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
