Forward to the Past - Globalisation's long history
Francis Wheen (2004)
In this excerpt from Francis Wheen's hugely enjoyable book - How
Mumbo-jumbo Conquered the World - he concisely dissects and lays bare the
contradictory, exaggerated and often historically short sighted claims and
counter claims about globalisation made by a wide range of pundits,
commentators and self-promoting academics and institutions.
