In this sense, it embodies transregional interconnectedness, the widening reach of networks of social activity and power, and the possibility of action at a distance”. David Held et al.: “Global Transformations. Politics, Economics and Culture”. “We can thereby define globalization as: A social process in which the constraints of geography on social and cultural arrangements recede and i which people come increasingly aware that they are receding”.
