"The Coming of Globalization" provides the basic context for understanding what globalization means for human society in the contemporary world. It first describes the underlying processes which have led to economic, political and cultural globalization and then sets out the present stage in the evolution of these processes in three vital areas: global capitalism and global markets; the changing relationship between national governments and their peoples; and the conduct of global international relationships. The author concludes by discussing some likely outcomes, both good and bad.
