This is a book in the Munk Debates series. I just picked up this book on the new book shelf at my local library. But I was surprised to learn that I have more books to read in this series.
The idea of globalization has always bewildered me and fascinated me at the same time. It is an abstract concept at best. The purpose of this debate is to help people feel more familiar with our fast-changing world and more comfortable with concepts that are hard to fathom. This book discusses populism.
The issues raised at the Munk Debates have not only fostered public awareness, but they have also helped many of us become more involved and, therefore, less intimidated by the concept of globalization.
It is very easy to be inward-looking about these issues. It is easy to be nationalistic. It is hard to go into the unknown.
There are a lot of burning problems in our world today from global warming, the plight of poverty, genocide, our shaky financial times, and much more.
Challenges can bring up the best in us. We just have to learn how to work around them.
If you are interested in populism, I invite you to pick up this book. It will inform you like no other to date.
