Geographies of Globalisation: A Demanding World / Edition 1
Globalisation brings distant places close to our everyday lives. Geographies of Globalisation explores the geographies of proximity and distance that shape globalisation, and considers the politics of responsibility that it brings.
It examines globalisation in terms of:
economy - patterns of trade, work and finance
politics - political institutions and the role of political campaigns
technology - how technologies are networking the world
migration - the dynamics of mobility.
The book explains how the geographies of globalisation - the ways in which things are brought closer together or kept apart - are critical to our understanding of how globalisation works now, and how we respond to its demands. Thinking geographically is a necessary part of understanding globalisation.
Including key readings, summary boxes, activities, and illustrative case-study material throughout, Geographies of Globalisation is essential reading for all students starting out in human geography.
