This intermediate-level textbook reconsiders the significance of globalization for Japan and the rest of the world today. By focusing on a variety of topics such as SNS, sports, the novel Coronavirus, and the global environment and considering each theme from various viewpoints, students will not only expand their knowledge but also develop skills that will enable them to think more clearly and express their own opinions. Also suitable as a side-reader for high school.
