Geographies of Globalisation

Clive Barnett, Jennifer Robinson, and Gillian Rose (eds.). 2008. Geographies of Globalisation: a demanding world. Sage.

Geographies of Globalisation 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.
