The Challenges of Globalization: Cultures in Transition in the Pacific-Asia Region defines globalization as supra-national ideas and processes that cross national borders with impunity. Such ideas and processes may appear to possess a will of their own, fostering closer links between cultures, societies, and economies. But, do they? How do individuals, communities, and nation-states actually respond to the forces of globalization? This book explores globalization within the natural sciences, social sciences, humanities, and education.
