Global Nation?: Australia and the Politics of Globalisationby John Wiseman
Pub. Date: 05/28/2012
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Globalization is one of the buzzwords of the late twentieth century, yet its meaning is elusive. Retrenchments, global warming; currency devaluations, etc. are often explained as unavoidable consequences of globalization, and even everyday things from food and clothes to television are apparently impacted upon by globalization. This book provides an accessible exploration of the meanings and implications of globalization. It explores a range of existing and potential responses to the globalization process, arguing that there may be alternatives.
