Description - Dictionary of Globalization by Andrew Jones

The Dictionary of Globalization provides a critical overview of the contemporary globalization debate, bringing together all the disparate elements of a vast and ever-growing literature. Framed by a lively introductory chapter which examines the emergence and propulsion of this concept into widespread usage, the dictionary comprises an A-Z of entries covering every major aspect of the globalization debate from 9/11 to Zapatistas, the World Bank to the World Social Forum. The entries, ranging from 100 to 500 words in length, are divided into three core categories: institutions and organizations processes and phenomena key thinkers Each entry is accompanied by a few carefully selected recommendations for further reading to help students deepen their understanding of the topic in question. The dictionary also concludes with a section of additional readings grouped around key themes such as economic, political and cultural globalization. Designed to facilitate the readers own critical engagement with the complex ideas behind different perspectives on globalization, the dictionary is an invaluable guide for students, researchers and policy-makers.
