The special character of Globalization: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow is the inclusion of a broad international and multicultural spectrum of issues. The approach is systemic. Political, economic, geographic, ecological, social, cultural, ethnic, religious and historical processes are analyzed. Single and joint impacts on globalization and cultural-geographic regions are discussed. Globalization: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow explores the idea that both human history and globalization provide a bridge between the past and the future.
