It reminds me of the First Industrial Revolution when everybody was so positive ley surprised at the beginning. Latee on mankind learnt how detrimental it was for so many explotes people.
It is a most original book filled with hard data which I, as International Business Professor had not found before.
John Hoberman, who teaches in the Department of Germanic Studies at the University of Texas at Austin, is an internationally recognized professor and author who has published widely on performance-enhancing drugs, the sports world, and racial issues. These themes among others inform his history of globalization. In clearly presented and richly illustrated chapters, he presents a history of globalization that digs deep into the social and economic conditions that underlie these global developments. Railroads and container ships have revolutionized the transportation sector, Hollywood has provided the images, today the Internet delivers the information, the idea of the nation-state and human rights have achieved global status, while crime and grossly unequal working conditions constitute parts of the dark side of globalization.
You don't have to be an American to appreciate the enormous significance of sport and popular culture for the globalization process - not just for small countries, as the author emphasizes, but for all of us. Here the author is at the top of his form as one of the world's leading critics of the IOC, FIFA, and the doping culture.Read more ›
