Abstract

The phenomenon of globalisation came to the forefront of public interest in the 1990s and continues to exert a growing, powerful, and uneven effect upon business, governments and societies of the world. Yet its very conceptualisation as espoused in the research literature remains unclear; its effects hotly debated. This book explores globalisation as something much more than an interconnectedness of economies, people and processes, taking it into the realm of a total transcendence in the power of nation-states and the emergence and growth of 'transnational' actors, and flows of capital, products, people and information unprecedented in history.
