Since its first publication in 1995, this cogently argued and impressively documented work has been in use in every university in Canada, as well as many in the United States and overseas. In this revised and updated edition, Gary Teeple continues his examination of the undermining of the conditions of social democracy by clarifying the definition of globalization and further exploring its historical background. Teeple discusses the meaning and implication of "knowledge-based" means of production and analyzes postmodernism as a consequence of the transformations brought on by this new technology. In addition, he critically examines many contemporary skeptics of the idea of globalization and considers the potential for progressive social change given the continued expansion of globalized capital.This book is essential reading for an understanding of the dynamics behind our rapidly changing world.
