The Lexus and the Olive Tree:  Understanding Globalization

The Lexus and the Olive Tree: Understanding Globalization

This site is designed to support a book by Thomas Friedman, "The Lexus and the Olive Tree." In the author's words, "this book is an effort to explain how this new era of globalization became the dominant international system at the end of the twentieth century--replacing the Cold War system--and to examine how it now shapes virtually everyone's domestic politics and international relations." This site offers a unique online extension of Friedman's book. Access audio and video clips, copies of Friedman's NY Times articles, background information about globalization, and much more.
