“Given the rapid changes in the configuration of the global economy, Global Shift, Seventh Edition, will be welcomed by academicians and assigned in graduate and undergraduate classes. While retaining the strengths that have made prior editions much adopted around the world, the seventh edition has been updated to weave in such important new topics as the impact of the 2008 global financial crisis, the global smartphone infrastructure, climate change, corporate social responsibility, and national and international inequality. Readable case studies and excellent figures and graphs provide students with the empirical illustrations they need to understand the larger theoretical concepts. A remarkable update by the foremost economic geographer of globalization that should be on everyone's reading list.”

—Martin Kenney, PhD, Department of Human Ecology, University of California, Davis; Senior Project Director, Berkeley Roundtable on the International Economy

“Not just an update, the seventh edition of Global Shift offers compelling theoretical and empirical insights as it takes on the critical global political-economic processes and debates of our time. Dicken provides a welcome synthesis and interrogation of prevailing theories of the global economy and addresses such fraught issues as the 2008 financial crisis and the intensification of inequality. An amazing resource.”

—Erica Schoenberger, PhD, Department of Geography and Environmental Engineering, The Johns Hopkins University

Global Shift defines the gold standard in the field of globalization studies, which it has had a large hand in defining. The revised seventh edition continues to accomplish what no other book in the field does—it presents a grounded but broad view of globalization, judiciously assesses the key debates, and recognizes (but never drowns in) complexity. Global Shift combines an authoritative voice with meticulous documentation and outstanding illustrations; it’s the trusted source.”

—Jamie Peck, PhD, Canada Research Chair in Urban and Regional Political Economy, University of British Columbia, Canada
