Short description After Globalization offers a new way of thinking about globalization -- both what it was and how it still operates as a social narrative. In lively and unflinching prose, the authors argue that contemporary thought about the world is disabled by a fatal flaw: the inability to think "an after" to globalization. Examining the work of four popular thinkers (Thomas Friedman, Richard Florida, Paul Krugman and Naomi Klein) After Globalization re-animates a discussion and debate about globalization which seems to have been shelved since the recent financial crisis.
