Overview

Exploring a wide range of issues, from the integration of the world economy to how contemporary processes are shaping and shaped by nation-states and how workers are organizing transnationally in response to transformations in the planet’s economic geography, Geographies of Globalization is a critical examination of what has become the leitmotif of our contemporary world.

  • Challenges neoliberal assumptions on the nature of globalization
  • Provides a conceptual overview of how globalization is a spatial process and of its relation to capitalism
  • Explores whether we are in fact living in a more ‘globalized’ world or only in a more ‘internationalized’ one
  • Considers arguments concerning whether ‘globalization’ is a new phenomenon or simply the latest manifestation of processes many hundreds of years in the making
  • Focuses on how nation-states have shaped, and been shaped by, contemporary processes of ‘globalization’, how ‘globalization’ has been imagined discursively, and how workers are responding to such processes
  • Explores how workers are creating new organizing strategies in response to ‘globalization’

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Herod presents in a concise manner a number of critical perspectives on globalization in a way that makes them easily accessible without dumbing them down." (CHOICE, October 2009)

"An important introduction to the debates about the geography of globalization. Critical but never shrill, the book works unerringly to expose and render intelligible the intellectual and practical pressure points that are the result of the multiple processes of globalization. As good a starting point as any you'll find."
Nigel Thrift, University of Warwick

"Writing for an upper level undergraduate readership, Andrew Herod has produced a challenging critical interpretation of geographies of globalization that is both historically informed and geographically sensitive."
Peter Dicken, University of Manchester
