Product description


"King reminds us both  that over millennia there have been previous waves of globalisation and that, whilst they may have had different drivers, they fall as well as rise. And the falls have not been pretty. As a world , we have benefited greatly from the current wave over the last seven decades, and would if it continued. But that is far from inevitable and we must understand the longer history and the forces which are now putting this wave in serious question. King's analysis is fascinating and fun in its story telling and profoundly important in its substance". -- Lord Nicholas Stern, President of The British Academy and I.G.Patel Professor of Economics and Government at the LSE, and cross-bench member of the House of Lords.
