About this book

Introduction

The world and humanity are changing at an unprecedented rate. This book explores the processess that underlie this changing but coherent canvas. What is fuelling them? What is driving them? Can we control them? Mankind has always found ways to order life so as to reduce uncertainty and has sought to enhance the wellbeing of individuals, peoples and nations. In the modern and postmodern world, business and enterprise play a big role. Their tendency towards globalization needs to be understood and harnessed, not opposed out of hand or wished away, particularly because the tendency has not yet fully worked itself out. For sound understanding it is necessary to avoid seeing the issues through the eyes of one particular discipline. Hence this book also draws on material from history, anthropology, development economics, ICT, sociology and political science to help the reader gain insight into the processes that are occurring. It provides a signpost towards a new dynamic, in an increasingly integrated world, in which we observe an emergent form of globalization affecting the planet as a whole and the future of the people on it.
