Editors: James L. Maruba
Book Description:
Globalization can be described as a process by which the people of the world are unified into a single society. This process is a combination of economic, technological, sociocultural and political forces.Looking specifically at economic globalization, it can be measured in different ways. These centre on the four main economic flows that characterize globalization:
* Goods and services, e.g. exports plus imports as a proportion of national income or per capita of population
* Labour/people, e.g. net migration rates; inward or outward migration flows, weighted by population
* Capital, e.g. inward or outward direct investment as a proportion of national income or per head of population
* Technology, e.g. international research & development flows; proportion of populations (and rates of change thereof) using particular inventions (especially 'factor-neutral' technological advances such as the telephone, motorcar, broadband)

This new volume centers on globalization and its processes in Africa.
