Decentralized Globalization provides a fresh, multi-dimensional viewpoint on globalization. This book differs from other globalization literature in that it concentrates on the significant role that civil society and civil government play in globalization. In this it is unlike other globalization literature, which tends to be written either in favor or against globalization, or highlight cross-border issues such as economic dislocation, the spread of pandemic disease, cultural assimilation, rapid decrease in transportation times, immigration, or the growth of drug-trafficking and crime cartels.
