4.0 out of 5 stars Globalisation explained, 1 Oct. 1999
This review is from: Global Shift: Transforming the World Economy (Paperback)
Global Shift looks at the increasing globalisation of business and related activities; it critically examines opposing schools of thought on whether the changes are real or cosmetic; and it provides a comprehensive overview of this most complex and thought-provoking topic.
The book starts off by identifying the patterns of globalisation, and particularly the emergence of the east and south-east Asian newly industrialising economies. It then looks in detail at the processes by which globalisation is occurring and describes various case studies which draw on the themes in the book.
Whilst the book is good at examing patterns and processes of global changes, the author does have a tendency to introduce statistics and figures that are not always included in the various tables and charts, which are liberally peppered throughout the book. This can serve to confuse. However, this is a minor criticism of what is otherwise a good starting point for understanding the new world that we now live in.
This book is a core text for the Bristol Business School MBA course.
