More Information
Highlighting the global scale of the major classes of voluntary movements – commodities and people, capital, information and technology – Aharon Kellerman offers a contemporary and synthesizing perspective on global spatial mobilities. This wide-ranging book sheds new light on each of the mobility types individually as well as globalization and spatial mobilities more broadly through detailed comparative analysis.

This important work is set in the context of current conflicting global trends towards growing globalization of information and technology on the one hand and pressures to limit the globalization of the movements of immigrants and commodities on the other.

By its nature, the book will appeal to a wide international readership and is of particular value to students and researchers in a variety of fields that focus on mobility and globalization, namely, geography, business administration, economics, sociology and political science.
Critical Acclaim
‘This is an impressive grand sweeping book about the globalization and spatial mobility of people, capital, information and technology. It requires a great scholar such as Kellerman to bring such wide-ranging topics together in a single book.’
