Rethinking Globalizations

Series Editor: Barry K. Gills, Kevin Gray

Rather than perpetuating or simply reacting to the economic understanding of globalisation, this series seeks to capture the term and broaden its meaning to encompass a wide range of issues and disciplines and convey a sense of alternative possibilities for the future.
