Summary 'Globalization' has become the buzzword of our times - a term that describes a variety of changing economic, political, cultural, ideological and environmental processes that are alleged to have accelerated and intensified in the last few decades. The author presents globalization in accessible language as a multifaceted process encompassing global, regional, and local aspects of social life. He explores whether it is a new phenomenon, and if it should be considered a 'good' or 'bad' thing - a question that has been hotly debated in classrooms, boardrooms and on the streets - especially sine the 9/11 terrorist attacks
