Exploring a wide range of issues, from the integration of the world economy to how contemporary processes are shaping and shaped by nation-states and how workers are organizing transnationally in response to transformations in the planet's economic geography, Geographies of Globalization is a critical examination of what has become the leitmotif of our contemporary world. Challenges neoliberal assumptions on the nature of globalization Provides a conceptual overview of how globalization is a spatial process and of its relation to capitalism Explores whether we are in fact living in a more 'globalized' world or only in a more 'internationalized' one Considers arguments concerning whether 'globalization' is a new phenomenon or simply the latest manifestation of processes many hundreds of years in the making Focuses on how nation-states have shaped, and been shaped by, contemporary processes of 'globalization', how 'globalization' has been imagined discursively, and how workers are responding to such processes Explores how workers are creating new organizing strategies in response to 'globalization'
