Globalization is designed to facilitate a better appreciation of the forces operating in the international business/economic environment as well as the critical economic and institutional variables in many of the most important national players in the environment. The book provides the crucial insights into the extensive literature on the politics of the global economic system without being boring, non-stimulating or unnecessarily cumbersome.
The arguments are carefully rendered to assist corporate and international economic and business players alike in deepening their appreciation of the critical and perhaps inevitable process of the roll-back of the sovereign State and its substitution with a new global order driven by market mechanism — seemingly contrary currents and trends from the global response to extant financial crises notwithstanding.
More importantly, Globalization facilitates a better understanding of where all the critical situational forces in the international business environment are headed in the years to come, thus making it an appropriate companion for both policy and business practitioners alike.
This book is part of the African World Series, edited by Toyin Falola, Jacob and Frances Sanger Mossiker Chair in the Humanities, University of Texas at Austin.
