About this book

From the late 1990s through the present, globalization has become a buzzword. Despite very different meanings attached to the term and even more divergent evaluations of its likely impact, globalization has not yet become as global as it sounds.

This may change. It is clear that we are in an accelerated process of transition to a new period in world history.
