This book examines how consistent the post-war process of globalisation has been with the basic requisites of sustainable development. The book provides an interpretation of post-war globalisation with a special emphasis on the last quarter of the twentieth century, in order to assess its sustainability, and argues that the polarisation of public opinion into support of either globalisation or sustainable development has not helped an understanding of the issues, and that the confrontation should be abandoned. The book provides a more balanced discussion of the issues involved in global sustainability.
