Globalism and Regionalism

Globalism and Regionalism

The world is simultaneously approaching a number of crises; from climate change, to global inequity, unbalanced population growth, resource shortage and terrorism. Jonathan Porritt, in this well-argued book, recognises the role that globalism plays as both part of the problem and as an essential part of the solution. He addresses different possible modes of globalism and challenges the world's leaders to reform the way business as we know it is done. A sequel to his 2007 book Capitalism as if the World Matters, Globalism and Regionalism should be read by everyone who has an interest in the future of our planet.
