Summary
The world is changing at an unprecedented rate. This book explores the processes that underlie this changing but coherent canvas. What is fuelling them? What is driving them? Can we control them? Humankind has always found ways to order life so as to reduce uncertainty and has sought to enhance the well-being of individuals and nations. In the modern and postmodern world, businesses and enterprises play a huge role. Their tendency towards globalization needs to be understood and harnessed, not opposed out of hand or wished away. However, for sound understanding it is necessary to avoid seeing the issues through the eyes of one particular discipline. Hence this book also draws on material from history, anthro-pology, development economics, information technology, sociology and political science to help the reader gain insight into the processes that are occurring. It provides a signpost towards a new dynamic, in an increasingly integrated world, in which we observe an emergent form of globalization affecting the planet as a whole and the future of the people on it
