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’
