Book description

Globalization has, essentially, come to an end. It is, already, a victorious revolution. It has profoundly restructured the relationships between people and the world, often recreating them in a new geographical image. This book discovers and describes these relationships of new geographies, providing a comprehensive spatial guide to the globalized world of the 21st century. It considers a number of timely and important themes and insights for the present and future world, exploring topics such as population trends and migration; development, the urban; transportation; religion; our endangered planet; wars, conflicts and terrorism, and disease. As such it offers a cross-cutting synthesis of the modern world. It will be of interest to students and researches in humanities and social sciences, including geographers, economists, political scientists and IR specialists. "The essays in the volume New Geographies of the Globalized World analyse the phenomenon of globalisation through various topics of geography. The concrete examples are of different scale and provide tangible and apprehensible clues for interpreting global networks and flows. The book aims to reveal and present the various relationships between people and the world that are profoundly restructured in this new global era."- Geza Barta, Doctoral School of Earth Sciences, Eoetvoes Lorand University (ELTE), Budapest, Hungary
