Globalization Contested: An International Political Economy of Work

Synopsis

This exciting book brings fresh insights to the contemporary globalization debate. It opens up the concept and concrete experience of globalization to reveal the social and political contests that give 'global' its meaning, by examining the contested nature of globalization as it is expressed in the restructuring of work. Through case studies that span from the labor flexibility debates in Britain and Germany, to the strategies and tactics of corporations and workers, the author examines how globalization is interpreted and experienced in everyday life.
