What exactly is globalization, and should its effects be cheered or jeered? How have developing countries fared under globalization's new dispensation, and what if anything can be done to help them prosper? How are states and firms reacting to the new pressures placed on them? Should the international economic architecture be reformed in response?
These and other important analytical questions about globalization are highlighted in this collection of articles originally published in the pages of Foreign Affairs. This reader brings together an impressive collection of experts who represent a cross-section of opinion on the subject, although most underscore that the benefits of integration far outweigh those of isolation.
