Introduction
The dominant theme of the latter decades of the 20th century and on into this one as well has been that of “globalization” in its many guises – cultural (e.g., the “McDonaldization” of the planet); economic (e.g., the Bretton Woods post-WWII “international economic order”); political (e.g., the “democratization” of governments); financial (e.g., the Asian meltdown of the latter 1990s); military (e.g., arms sales); criminal (e.g. global reach of drug lords).  Again, however, like with terrorism, this is not really anything new other than you living through it.  Recorded history is, in one sense, a record of globalization, beginning with human migration out of Africa into the Middle East and on into the Eurasian continent and beyond; cultural and political exchanges among more sedentary groups; and expanded trade and exploration resulting from technological innovations in transportation and communication – all produced unending linkages among cultures with greater and more frequent global reach.
Thus, the major concern today is less with the existence of globalization but rather its implications.  Is globalization a positive thing or do its negatives outweigh its benefits?  The April 2009 G-20 summit meeting in London generated as much media attention to the demonstrators outside the meeting hall in their bunny suits as it did with the outcome of the meetings.
