Summary "In the modern and postmodern world, businesses and enterprises play a huge role. Their tendency towards globalization needs to be understood and harnessed, not opposed out of hand or wished away. However, for sound understanding it is necessary to avoid seeing the issues through the eyes of one particular discipline. Hence this book also draws on material from history, anthropology, development economics, information technology, sociology and political science to help the reader gain insight into the processes that are occurring. It provides a signpost towards a new dynamic, in an increasingly integrated world, in which we observe an emergent form of globalization affecting the planet as a whole and the future of the people on it."--BOOK JACKET.
