`This is a highly impressive book.... It is more than just a very good undergraduate text. It is an important contribution to economic geography in its own right. It is a remarkable work of synthesis, drawing together a wide range of materials to present a coherent and lucid explanation of the process of "global shift", which is "a shorthand term to encompass the whole set of internationalization and globalization processes"' - Progress in Human Geography

`Reflecting the many ways our understanding of globalization has changed and become more sophisticated, the Third Edition of Global Shift, like its predecessors, is an invaluable text for undergraduate classes. No other book on the market contains as much information and clear-headed thinking about the global economy' - Gary Gereffi, Department of Sociology, Duke University

`A first-rate eminently readable work, with an unique blend of empirical and conceptual material and an analytical depth rarely achieved in textbooks' - John Holmes, Department of Geography, Queen's University, Kingston, Ontario

Vom Verlag:

Preoccupation with the `global' is an emblematic feature of our time. While much of the literature is stronger on hype than on reality, the totally revised and updated Third Edition of Global Shift takes a more balanced view of globalization. It identifies both the massive changes that continue to transform the world economy and affect local communities across the globe, and the complex processes involved. It focuses on the interrelated actions of transnational corporations and states within a volatile technological environment. Richly illustrated with more than 200 specially designed figures and tables, this bestselling cross-disciplinary book provides a unique approach to one of the key issues of the new millennium.
