Description of this Book

Notwithstanding New Zealand's discrete place and relative isolation in the world, what was once termed the 'tyranny of distance' applies no longer to the country's external relations. There is a pressing need for New Zealanders to have a deeper understanding of the forces that drive global trends and developments, from which their nation is not immune. This selection of writings from Terence O'Brien is a notable contribution to that better appreciation of the impacts of globalisation, from the perspective of a small, internationally minded, modern and multicultural democracy.
