Globalization has become one of the dominant ideas of the beginning of the 21st century. However, is the debate on globalization as global as it ought to be? In this book Richard Grant and John Rennie Short have brought together prominent experts in the field to consider how globalization affects marginalized countries and groups. A variety of case studies provides an assessment of the issue of globalization and offers a fresh look at the relationship between the global and the local.
