"For both established scholars and students, Global Shift introduces, analyzes, and synthesizes current thinking on globalization from business studies, political science, economics, geography, and sociology. It combines readability, depth, and breadth into an approachable tour de force. Anyone teaching a class on the changing global economy will be gratified by the sixth edition's further refinements to what is already the gold standard."---Martin Kenney, Department of Human and Community Development, University of California, Davis
"The premier text for middle- and upper-level courses in economic geography and globalization....Global Shift continues to be a `must read' for all students of the global economy."---Robin Leichenko, Department of Geography, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey
"Global Shift is a tremendous resource; it covers a vast empirical range but is always closely attentive to the underlying processes, impacts, and meanings of globalization. Dicken's approach beautifully integrates the economic and the political with problems of equity and ethics---a rare accomplishment. Ideal for undergraduate classes across the social sciences."---Erica Schoenberger, Department of Geography and Environmental Engineering, Johns Hopkins University
"Global Shift, Sixth Edition, continues to deconstruct globalization to show that distance (economic geography) still matters. Dicken uses insights from international business research to demonstrate that world business activity is more regional than global.... In short, economic geography and international business are closely aligned in their approach to globalization."---Alan Rugman, Henley Business School, University of Reading, United Kingdom
Widely adopted throughout the world, this definitive text comprehensively examines how the global economy works and its effects on people and places. Peter Dicken provides a balanced yet critical analysis of globalization processes and debates. The text synthesizes a wealth of data on production, distribution, consumption, and innovation, including detailed case studies of key global industries. Students learn how the global economic map is being shaped and reshaped by dynamic interactions among transnational corporations, states, consumers, labor, and civil society organizations. Useful features include nearly 250 quick-reference figures and tables. The companion website offers PowerPoint slides of the figures and tables, additional case studies and questions, annotated Web links, and more.
