Global Shift is - quite simply - the definitive work on economic globalization. The extensive use of graphics, lack of jargon, and clear definition of terms has made it the standard work for the social sciences.

The Seventh Edition has been completely updated using the latest available sources. It maps the changing centres of gravity of the global economy and explains the global financial crisis. Each chapter has been extensively rewritten and new material introduced to explain the most recent empirical developments; ideas on production, distribution, consumption; and corporate governance. Global Shift provides:

  • The most comprehensive and up-to-date explanation of economic globalization available, examining the role of transnational corporations, states, labour, consumers, organizations in civil society, and the power relations between them.

  • A clear guide to how the global economy is being transformed through the operation of global production networks involving transnational corporations, states, interest groups and technology.

  • Extended discussion of problems and institutions of global governance in the context of the global economic crisis and of the role of corporate social responsibility.

  • A suite of extensive online ancillaries for both students and lecturers, including author videos, case studies, lecture notes, and free access to specially selected journal articles related to each chapter. 

There is only one definitive guide to economic globalization for the social sciences: and that's Peter Dicken's Global Shift.

    Most books that analyse the crucial subject of globalisation only look at it from a western perspective. This is the first detailed study to look at globalisation specifically in the Asia-Pacific region. An impressive collection of leading, interd...

Recensioner i media

No other book concerned with economic globalization was able to match earlier editions in either breadth or empirical richness, but this latest Global Shift 7e is a book whose time has truly come. Coined by Peter Dicken in the mid 1980s, the idea of a ‘global shift’ has now been propelled into wider circulation as the world grapples with the reality of a maturing Asian and other BRICs economies, and this latest edition is beyond authoritative in terms of its empirical depth and insight into this issue.

This is the definitive account of the economic geography of globalisation. With each edition it just gets better!

There is no other book that so comprehensively examines the meaning, dynamic and uneven impact of economic globalisation. The analysis extended to cover the current financial crisis takes the mastery of the book to new and pertinent heights.

The earlier editions of this book made an excellent contribution towards an understanding of the global business environment and challenges. The present edition takes us further towards our understanding of the role played by multinational enterprises, governments and other organizations in managing these challenges. It provides theoretical understanding of fundamental issues that we face today such as; sustainable development, poverty and inequality and highlights the problems with global governance. The book is a must read for those who want to be up-to-date with global issues and challenges and how multinationals and governments are interacting to handle these challenges.

Once again Peter Dicken seamlessly combines disciplinary perspectives to create a wonderfully comprehensive insight into the essential dynamics of the global economy. His usual array of fabulous maps, graphs, tables and frameworks brilliantly animate this, his latest and most readable edition of Global Shift.

Global Shift is rightly one of the most influential books examining the changing geography of globalisation and the world economy. Global in scope, and geographically nuanced, this new edition provides the kind of authoritative account of the interdependent world economy which shapes our lives that is required by those seeking to understand the complexity of changing power relations in the world today.

Given the rapid changes in the configuration of the global economy, Global Shift, Seventh Edition, will be welcomed by academicians and assigned in graduate and undergraduate classes. While retaining the strengths that have made prior editions much adopted around the world, the seventh edition has been updated to weave in such important new topics as the impact of the recent global...
