Economic Geography | Geography of Development
o economy - patterns of trade, work and finance
o politics - political institutions and the role of political campaigns
o technology - how technologies are networking the world
o migration - the dynamics of mobility.
Including key readings, summary boxes, activities, and illustrative case-study material throughout, the book explains how the geographies of globalization - the ways in which things are brought closer together or kept apart - are critical to our understanding of how globalization works now, and how we respond to it.
A comprehensive and clearly structured text covering the main issues and accessible to undergrad students.
Invaluable insights are offered and neatly categorised for undergrad students that focuses on individual and collective responsibility and restorative measures for historical injustices imposed. a Great global overview.
All chapters are worth to read. But the best article is "Media and communication in globalised world".
This book mostly addresses topics that are not included in the course on Globalization as taught in the Geography curriculum over here. Only limited parts can be used by the students as additional reading besides core readings
This is a very useful text for undergraduates with a clear sense of direction and a range of interesting topics covered. Students will get a feel for the breadth of the topic of globalisation by exploring a range of detailed ways in which global processes challenge us to think and live differently.
I loved the book; it's excellent. And I have used small parts of it in my class. But overall I felt my students wouldn't be prepared for the level of reader expected here.
