Global Trends and Global GovernanceBook - 2002
Which global issues have the most impact on our lives at the beginning of the 21st century? What's the relationship between developments in politics, ecology, the economy, security, and systems of global government? How do we as individuals address the problems that they raise in an increasingly globalised world?Global Trends and Global Governance is a practical guide that explains the key political, economic, ecological and social factors that shape the process of globalisation.Drawing on information from UN reports, the book is packed with useful facts and figures that elucidate these complex ideas. It includes analysis of the US economy and US foreign policy as part of a wider critique of UN unilateralism, revealing the need to establish more co-operative and inclusive forms of global politics.
