"This book is a critical introduction to the concepts and realities surrounding what has become the leitmotif of our contemporary world. The book shows that whatever else they may be, the contemporary processes that are impacting on the world economy and which are variously represented as 'globalization' and/or 'internationalization' are fundamentally geographical processes, for they are tying the planet together in new and different ways."--BOOK JACKET.
