This book brings together authors from eleven countries to analyze and reflect on what globalization means to them. Does it mean the same in Russia as it does in the U.S.? The same in China as in South Africa? This book provides a global dialogue on globalization and brings much-needed new perspectives on how to think about one of the most important processes of our time.
