relations which link distant localities in such a way that local happenings are shaped by events occurring many miles away and vice versa Anthony Giddens 2 The concept of globalization reflects the sense of an immense enlargement of world communication as well as of the horizon of a world market both of which seem far more tangible and immediate than in earlier stages of modernity Fredric Jameson Expansion and stretching of social relations activities and interdependencies 3 Globalization may be thought of as a process which embodies a transformation in the spatial organization of social relations and transactions assessed in terms of their extensity intensity velocity and impact generating transcontinental or interregional flows and networks of activity interaction and the exercise of power David Held Intensification and acceleration of social changes and activities 4 Globalization as a concept refers both to the compression of the world and intensification of

Siberian Ancestors crossed the Bering Strait into North America a thousand years earlier Geographically limited 10000 years ago humans produce their own food The decentralized egalitarian nature of hunter and gatherer groups was replaced by centralized and highly patriarchal social structures headed by chiefs and priests who were exempted from hard manual labon It was only towards the end of this epoch that centrally administered forms of agriculture religion bureaucracy and warfare slowly emerged as the key agents of intensifying modes of social exchange that would involve a growing number of societies in many regions of the world The pre modern period 3500BCE 1500 BCE Monumental inventions like wheel animaldrawn carts and infrastructural innovations Spread of ideas inventions and writing facilitated the coordination of complex social activities and encouraged large state formations The pre modern period was the age of empires Chinese empire silk roads 400footlong ocean going ships The existence of these sprawling networks of economic and cultural exchange triggered massive waves of migration which led to further population increase and the rapid growth of urban centers In the resulting cultural clashes religions with only local significance were transformed into the major world religions The early modern period 15001750 Modernity European Enlightenment

resources that originated mostly in other regions of the world western capitalist enterprises gained in stature Daring to resist powerful governmental control economic entrepreneurs and their academic counterparts began to spread a philosophy of individualism and rational capitalist system supposedly based upon the providential workings of the free market and its quotinvisible hand 19 century explosion of science and technology The contemporary period from 1970 Capture the public imagination
