Summary: "In the past, the world seemingly encompassed only our communities and our country. But it is no longer the case. We cannot ignore the world beyond our own. The Philippines’ global links continue to expand, manifested in the 4,018 Filipinos who leave the country every day for jobs practically all over the world. Filipinos are not just found in Hong Kong, Japan, Dubai, Saudi Arabia, Rome, Vancouver, or Hawaii. Some are in Kazakhstan, Nigeria, Denmark, Mexico, and even St. Kitts in the Caribbean. Our communication with the world has already remarkably increased through businesses like “call centers.” All these interactions are happening in a process called globalization. This book discusses globalization and explains how the lives of Filipinos have become intertwined with globalization's cultural, economic, political, and social aspects. By studying the causes and consequences of globalization, students will be able to understand more about themselves as they compare the nation’s experiences with those of other countries, as well as broaden their knowledge of their status and existence as Filipinos and as global citizens."--Back cover.
