Abstract

Globalization is one of the most potent theoretical frameworks of the moment, for it provides a means by which we can make sense of our socio-cultural connectivities, and the networks through which those connections are developed and maintained. The impact of works such as Thomas Friedman’s The World is Flat: a brief history of the twenty-first century (2005), Naomi Klein’s The Shock Doctrine: the rise of disaster capitalism (2007) and Pankaj Ghemawat’s World 3.0: global prosperity and how to achieve it (2011) illustrate the timely and relevant nature of globalization thinking.
