Although the word globalization is still not received English, many books now celebrate the global integration of trade, finance, culture and telecommunication. This is a book with a difference: nine renowned experts examine the threats to security - physical, political and economic - of specific aspects of globalization and then explore the social responses to these threats. Between them, the contributors cover politics, the environment, conflict, finance, manufacturing, armaments, labour, development and social security. These thought provoking and disturbing essays are essential to a critical understanding of globalization. They set an agenda for research and action on the regulation of global forces.
