Globalization is fast becoming the most over-used and least-understood word in the world. For Tony Blair it is inevitable and irresistible. To deny it, says Nelson Mandela, is like saying I do not recognize winter. The accelerating political, economic, cultural and environmental interconnections that it describes are powerful and controversial. But where did globalization come from - and where is it going next? By identifying successive waves of globalization - from 15th-century explorations to the European trading empires of the 19th century; from the construction of the Great Wall of China to the fall of the Berlin Wall -- Alex MacGillivray tells the incredible story of how a mysterious flat earth became a global village. Covering globalization from all angles (the rise of the multinational corporation, the birth of the football World Cup, how most film stars know a friend of a friend of Kevin Bacon), MacGillivray opens the lid on the complex economics behind the controversies and gives equal play to technology and culture, politics and war.
