The Chinese face of globalization - Review for Six Faces of Globalisation

7th March 2022

Richard Cullen reviews Six Faces of Globalization: Who Wins, Who Loses and Why it Matters by Anthea Roberts and Nicolas Lamp.

The Six Faces of Globalization is an important new book, which prompts reflection on how Western media outlets have shaped our understanding of globalization and how China’s distinctive perspective on globalization may be yet do likewise.

In answering the question in its title, the book says there are at least six differing, primary narratives and it provides a detailed analysis of each of these. Roberts and Lamp avoid picking sides but rather focus on explaining the deep arguments underpinning the overlapping and competing views, with a view to providing a better framework for working through current important, complex disputes about globalization. One key aim of the book is to demonstrate how these disputes – and related discussions – may be approached more productively.
