Overview

In this new and expanded edition of Chossudovsky's international bestseller, the author outlines the contours of a New World Order which feeds on human poverty and the destruction of the environment, generates social apartheid, encourages ethnic strife, and undermines the rights of women. The result, as his detailed examples from all parts of the world show so convincingly, is a globalization of poverty.

This book is a skilful combination of lucid explanation and cogently argued critique of the fundamental directions in which our world is moving financially and economically.

Michel Chossudovsky is Professor of Economics at the University of Ottawa and Director of the Centre for Research on Globalization (CRG), which hosts the critically acclaimed website. He is a contributor to Encyclopaedia Brittanica. His writings have been translated into more than 20 languages.

Editorial Reviews

The Ecologist
In its entirety, the book can and should be read by all with interest in world peace and the causes of poverty" Frances Hutchinson.
Choice
This concise, provocative book reveals the negative effects of imposed economic structural reform. It deserves to be read carefully and widely.
The American Library Association (ALA)
Michele Stoddard
The current system, Chossudovsky argues, is one of capital creation through destruction. The suthor confronts head on the links between civil violence, social and environmental stress, with the modalities of market expansion.
Covert Action Quarterly
Jude Wanniski
Michel Chossudovsky is one of the leading intellectuals of the antiwar movement, perhaps the best, as I find he works his tail off in documenting the material he presents and is rigorous in his analysis.
