`It just keeps getting better… If there was a word beyond definitive, then that would be the word I would be using here' - Professor Nigel Thrift, School of Geographical Sciences, University of Bristol
`Global Shift shatters our easy slogans about globalization, corporations, and nations with bold new insights.… Peter Dicken has created a powerful conceptual framework not to be missed by those who hope to grasp the logic of this emerging global order' - William E Halal, School of Business and Public Management, George Washington University
`Dicken identifies both states and transnational corporations as the two key actors in the multiple processes of restructuring and institutionalization that we usually call the global economy. In so doing he has written a political economy of globalization and produced a far more comprehensive account than is typically the case in books about the global economy, most of which tend to confine the analysis to firms and markets' - Saskia Sassen, author of Global Networks, Linked Cities
`Global Shift shatters our easy slogans about globalization, corporations, and nations with bold new insights - modern economies are complex networks of productive processes that are both local and global, technology acts as a "great growling engine of change," corporations and governments form clusters of conflict and cooperation at the micro, meso, and macro levels. Peter Dicken has created a powerful conceptual framework not to be missed by those who hope to grasp the logic of this emerging global order - William E Halal, George Washington University, co-editor, 21st Century Economics, and author, The Infinite Resource
REVIEWS OF THE THIRD EDITION:
`This book must be regarded as both an interesting and very useful contribution to the study of the world economy' - Asia Pacific Journal of Economics and Business
`Packed with facts and charts from case-study industry sectors, this book shows that globalization is not a bulldozer sweeping all before it' - Community Affairs Briefing
`This is no mere update of the second edition, but involves a significant rethink of the nature of globalization and the processes impelling it, as well as new case studies... Global Shift is written in a very accessible style and is to be highly recommended' - Environment and Planning A
`This is a highly impressive book.... It is more than just a very good undergraduate text. It is an important contribution to economic geography in its own right. It is a remarkable work of synthesis, drawing together a wide range of materials to present a coherent and lucid explanation of the process of "global shift", which is "a shorthand term to encompass the whole set of internationalization and globalization processes"' - Progress in Human Geography
`Global Shift is an excellent state of the art examination of trends in the world economy, debunking some of the myths associated with globalization' - Andrew Cumbers, Department of Geography, University of Aberdeen
`This book is a mine of useful information and stimulating ideas. If there is a book for undergraduate courses on globalization and uneven development, this is it!' - Brian Hoyle, Department of Geography, University of Southampton
`This is a genuinely new edition of the most useful textbook presently available on the global economy. The graphics are of great value for teaching and the coverage of theories and concepts is clear and fair-minded' - Leslie Sklair, Department of Sociology, London School of Economics
`Reflecting the many ways our understanding of globalization has changed and become more sophisticated, the Third Edition of Global Shift, like its predecessors, is an invaluable text for undergraduate classes. No other book on the market contains as much information and clear-headed thinking about the global economy' - Gary Gereffi, Department of Sociology, Duke University
`A first-rate eminently readable work, with an unique blend of empirical and conceptual material and an analytical depth rarely achieved in textbooks' - John Holmes, Department of Geography, Queen's University, Kingston, OntarioBiografía del autor:
