  • About the Book
  • This volume focuses on the relationship of public policy to global and transnational political economic processes. The volume introduces a novel approach to globalization. The theme is discussed in a variety of ways. Analyses on the macro level explore globalization impacts on the state. Resistance to globalization is also considered as local communities strive to gain a modicum of control over their lives. All of the articles and the local case studies chosen point out the need to devise public policies that can serve the interests of the majority of the population in the Islands.
