Globalization is in retreat, but history tells us that this is but a temporary reversal. Globalization will return, but in what form? More cycles of boom and bust? Or can globalization be rebuilt on a more feasible and sustainable platform? These are the compelling questions that Michael Veseth tackles in this thoroughly revised and updated edition of his award-winning book, illuminating the path to a sustainable global future.
Michael Veseth is Robert G. Albertson Professor of International Political Economy at the University of Puget Sound.
