Review "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 recent 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 " Global Shift, Seventh Edition, continues to be a key resource for understanding the complexity of the global economy and the ongoing, often contentious negotiations among nations, corporations, and locales. In addition to clearly outlining larger institutional and structural processes, Dicken provides a wealth of detailed new empirical material to explain how the outcomes of the global economy manifest in specific contexts. The book's diverse concrete examples--such as the global production network of iPhones or corporate strategies to shield profits from taxation--are drawn directly from the headlines. An extremely valuable text for all courses on economic geography, globalization, international business, and economics."--Matthew Zook, PhD, Department of Geography, University of Kentucky "Given the dizzying pace of change in the global economy, it's more important than ever to have a comprehensive point of reference to allow us to understand and map the transformations around us. Global Shift, Seventh Edition, is that book. While continuing to add new material on countries, sectors, and the policies that shape global industries, Global Shift also provides a solid analytical framework that helps the reader navigate the new terrain. And its great graphs, diagrams, and charts are a visual delight. If you had to use just one book to convey globalization's promise and perils, this is the book I would recommend."--Gary Gereffi, PhD, Department of Sociology and Center on Globalization, Governance and Competitiveness, Duke University "Not just an update, the s
