Modern globalisation is producing far-reaching changes for communities, regions and nations, and creating new types of social, political and economic challenges and opportunities. More than just being an economic phenomenon, this globalisation is quickly reaching into new areas of human activity, and creating new contexts for individuals far removed from the day-to-day transactions of the marketplace.
Recognising the interconnections between the economic, social and political dimensions, the chapters of this book explore the practical meaning of globalisation at the local, regional, national and international level. With a foreword by the Hon R.J.L. Hawke, the papers in this collection represent the work of a wide range of researchers at the University of South Australia. Individually, these chapters explore globalisation from a variety of perspectives; collectively, they represent a unique and timely analysis of the multifaceted phenomenon of globalisation and the changes it is producing in the world today.
