ABSTRACT
The article examines several conflicting understanding and definition of globalization. It explains that globalization involves complex factors that include economic, political, legal, technological, cultural and moral. It discusses major theories about globalization. Globalization can be though of as the increased economic and political interdependence of nations and states. This increased interdependence is fostered and fosters cultural homogenization. The violence that seems to be directed by opponents of globalization is caused more by their resistance to cultural homogenization.
