Review: Dicken’s Global Shift

Global Shift, Seventh Edition: Mapping the Changing Contours of the World Economy

Peter Dicken

This one really borders on being a textbook (and in fact, I read it for a class on international political economy in undergrad) but as I did read it cover to cover, I think its worth a review, though perhaps not the time of the average reader. While this is a good and through review of the nature of the modern international economy, with a special focus on the interplay between global corporations and nation states, it isn’t really a book you’re just going to pick up and read on the train. Still if international business and economics is your bailiwick, getting this book is a worthwhile investment.

Recommended for the (serious) enthusiast.
