Globalization: A Multi-Dimensional System provides an invaluable introduction to the complex phenomenon of globalization. Evoking praise from some for facilitating trade and reducing poverty, yet blamed by others for causing job losses and cultural homogenization, it is important to understand the impacts of globalization for both individuals and organizations to be prepared and able to operate in its context.
With updated chapters, this new edition of Globalization:
• Tells the story of globalization, knitting perspectives together, and presenting current debates in the context of a ‘thinking manager’, considering the impacts for the individual and the organization
• Provides a framework using systems analysis to aid understanding of globalization as comprised of five interlinking domains; economic, social, political, physical, and business
• Includes up-to-date discussions of major events with global implications; from Britain’s departure from the EU to the increasing role of China as a key international decision maker
• Embellishes the text with important definitions and concepts in each chapter, as well as an explanation of the systems perspective on the subjects covered.
With its up-to-date coverage of the topic, and its accessible style, Globalization is an excellent resource for business and management students, as well as for practitioners seeking a concise overview of globalization from a theoretical perspective.
