Information spreads faster in the twenty-first century, but so do diseases and pollution. In this book, you will learn how globalization affects the environment, the economy, and religion. You will discover the place of the United Nations in international affairs, with its many divisions and branches dealing with everything from health to business to criminal law. As you read, you will see how globalization has brought both good and bad to the world.
