In 1999 more than 50,000 protestors at the World Trade Organization meeting turned downtown Seattle into a war zone. Windows were smashed, stores were looted, and 500 were arrested. In 2001 a demonstration at the Group of 7 meeting in Genoa, Italy, left one man dead as protestors clashed with police. And in 2002, only a few months after the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center, 201 demonstrators were arrested as 7,000 protested at the meeting of the World Economic Forum in New York City. What was the issue that evoked such intense, passionate and sometimes violent opposition? Globalization. Students are familiar with the term, but how to define the term and explain its many nuances and ramifications? In his new book, Globalization and America since 1945, D. Clayton Brown provides a brief, jargon-free and easy-to-understand overview of this important issue. This volume examines how the United States has impacted globalization and how it has been affected by the growing interconnectedness of the world's nations.
