Product description

Geographies of Globalization explores the geographies of proximity and distance that shape globalization, and considers the politics of responsibility that it brings. It examines globalization 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; and Migration: the dynamics of mobility. Including key readings, summary boxes, activities, and illustrative case-study material throughout, the book explains how the geographies of globalization - the ways in which things are brought closer together or kept apart - are critical to our understanding of how globalization works now, and how we respond to it.
