Description

The recent era of globalization and neoliberalism has left some predicting the end of traditional concepts
such as the nation state and localized economies. This volume surveys the historical and contemporary
performance of nations, continents, regions and corporations in the light of neoliberal globalization.
Special reference is given to economic, social, cultural, political and environmental performance, as well
as the trends and prognoses in Asia, Eastern Europe, Africa, America and Oceana. The book also
examines international institutions with a focus on modern problems such as pollution, financial crises,
terrorism and war. Clarity, craft and comprehensiveness are brought to this volume, leaving the reader
with a better comprehension of the global political economy. Readers with an interest in political
economy, international politics and economics generally will find this to be a good addition to their book
collections.
