The Routledge International Handbook of Globalisation Studies offers students clear and informed chapters on the history of globalisation and key theories that have considered the causes and consequences of the globalisation process. There are substantive sections looking at demographic, economic, technological, social and cultural changes in globalisation. The handbook examines many negative aspects – new wars, slavery, illegal migration, pollution and inequality – but concludes with an examination of responses to these problems through human rights organisations, international labour law and the growth of cosmopolitanism. There is a strong emphasis on interdisciplinary approaches with essays covering sociology, demography, economics, politics, anthropology and history.
