Globalization: it's a buzzword you can't escape. For some it's the ticket to a democratic world of instant communications and global prosperity. For others it's a money-mad juggernaut, spinning wildly out of control, threatening both cultural and biological diversity. Today the Western consumer model has seeped into every corner of the globe while gaps in wealth, food security and social provision continue to grow. "The No-Nonsense Guide to Globalisation" traces the journey towards a borderless world. And in the process it shows that the promise of globalization is seductive, powerful, and ultimately hollow. About the No-Nonsense Guides Major issues facing the world today, complex as they are, are further obfuscatedoften deliberatelyby political and corporate jargon and media spin. By contrast, "New Internationalist Magazine" has been a leading source of reliable information and clear analysis for the last twenty years. This new Verso series of "No-Nonsense Guides," published in conjunction with "New Internationalist, " cuts through the confusion to present the facts and arguments concerning contemporary global issues as accessibly as possible. Concise, comprehensive, and affordable, the "No-Nonsense Guides" will be of interest to busy people, from school age on, who want to know how the world works.
