Globalization and Trade
World Trade Networks 1920-2000
By Tieting Su
Published December 22nd 2004 by Routledge – 256 pages
In this impressive book, Tieting Su questions the consensus that globalization is a defining characteristic of the world economic system in general and the world trading system in particular. Most studies have examined globalization as it stands today - this book charts its prehistory. World trade networks are put under the microscope along with trading blocs and business cycles in a book that is a valuable resource not only for students of economics, but also of politics and sociology.
