A magnificent achievement. Since the publication of the first edition of Global Shift in 1986, Peter Dicken has constructed in successive editions a phenomenal record of the changing geography of capital accumulation on a world scale. This wholly new sixth edition of 2010, is an essential companion for anyone concerned to understand the rapid geographical shifts occurring in the world's economic power relations in these stressful and troubled times

A masterful new edition of a masterful text. Once again, Peter Dicken is at the cutting edge of the analysis of economic globalization and global trends. Global Shift is the authoritative text on these issues

Global Shift, sixth edition, continues to deconstruct globalization to show that distance (economic geography) still matters. Dicken uses insights from international business research to demonstrate that world business activity is more regional than global. Multinational enterprises are at the hub of global production networks and service delivery; they interact with governments and generally act as agents of economic development. In short economic geography and international business are closely aligned in their approach to globalization

I am impressed by how this book continues to evolve. It has opened out to new sectors and new themes, including extractive industries and the environmental implications of a globalized economy. Global Shift is a tremendous resource; it covers a vast empirical range but is always closely attentive to the underlying processes, impacts, and meanings of globalization. Dicken's approach beautifully integrates the economic and the political with problems of equity and ethics - a rare accomplishment. Ideal for undergraduate classes across the social sciences

The premier text for middle and upper-level courses in economic geography and globalization. The sixth edition provides detailed treatment of the current global financial crisis and a thorough assessment of globalization’s winners and losers. It contains entirely new chapters on mineral extractive industries and on the environmental implications of global production networks. Global Shift continues to be a 'must read' for all students of the global economy

I am among the privileged to read and use Dicken's Global Shift as a reference text for my writings and as an elective text in my Urban Geography courses since its 1986 first edition...Global Shift's sixth edition is a vital text comprehensively reviewing how global economy functions and how enjoyable or unpleasant are its impacts on people and places. In the sixth edition Dicken offers an updated critical analysis of globalization followed by the continuing theoretical, in some respect political, on the debate on its nature, impact and durability.

This sixth edition of Global Shift has been completely revised and updated using the latest available sources. Each chapter has been extensively rewritten and new chapters introduced to take account of recent empirical developments, new ideas on production, distribution, and consumption in the global economy and the implications of the global financial crisis. This now standard work on economic globalization provides:

  • The most comprehensive and up-to-date explanation of economic globalization available, examining the role of transnational corporations, states, labour, consumers, and organizations in civil society and the power relations between them
  • A clear guide to how the global economy is being transformed through the operation of global production networks involving transnational corporations, states and interest groups and technology
  • Detailed discussion of different theories of economic globalization
  • A new chapter on the environmental impacts of globalizing processes
  • Extended discussion of problems and institutions of global governance in the context of the global economic crisis and of the role of corporate social responsibility
  • Boadened sectoral case studies including a new case study on resource-extractive industries, and an extended chapter on financial and advanced business services.

The extensive use of graphics, lack of jargon and clear definition of terms, makes Global Shift the key resource on economic globalization in the social science literature.
