"This volume examines contemporary debates in an accessible fashion, offering a clear guide to one of the big issues of our time. In so doing, it does not take one particular stance; rather it explores the arguments and evidence. After introducing the main theoretical positions that have been developed through academic research, different chapters look at the changing forms of communication and culture industries, trade patterns and financial flows of the world economy, characterized by inequalities as well as opportunities for greater preparation, and the status of a 'new political order' in relation to that which preceded it." "This textbook will be welcomed across the social sciences, and especially by students in politics, sociology and economics."--BOOK JACKET.
