Globalization : a very short introduction

Manfred B. Steger (Author)
We live today in an interconnected world, where ordinary people can become instant online celebrities to fans thousands of miles away, religious leaders can influence millions globally, and complex social forces intersect across continents. This is globalization. Manfred B. Steger considers the major dimensions of globalization, as well as the hotly contested question of whether it is, ultimately, a good or a bad thing. From climate change to trade wars, Ebola to social media, he explores today's unprecedented levels of global integration, as well as the recent challenges posed by resurgent national populism. -- From publisher's description
