For many scholars and political activists, “globalization” encompasses a variety of economic, political, cultural, ideological, and environmental practices that have accelerated in the last few decades.

In addition to unpacking the term’s various dimensions, he investigates whether globalization is “good” or “bad”: a question hotly debated in classrooms, boardrooms, and on the streets.
