Regional Studies

Editorial Digital del Tecnológico de Monterrey

 "The world today…” I bet this is an expression you have heard time after time. It appears in movies, in the news, and even in songs. The question is: why? Well, today, knowing about the place you live in, does not mean to know about your house, your town, your city, or even your country. Nowadays, the place you live in is the entire world. History has evolved into a situation where globalization is the norm; businesses are conducted everywhere at the same time, movies are launched simultaneously in every country, and working and living do not necessarily happen in the same place. And since you would not dream of going through life without knowing your house, it is only logical that you do not go on without stopping for a while to get to know what this “world today” is.This book intends to help you do just that. It is an introduction to the real world history. This is not just about the Industrial Revolution or the World Wars. This is a small tour of all the different regions that constitute our world. In this way, you will understand what has been going on out there and why. Who knows? Maybe it will help you make some sense of what is happening now. It is also about giving you the tools to piece back together all these regions and to see what they have in common, and what challenges they are facing or are about to face. But above all, hopefully this book will become a compass to help you navigate “the world today” whatever that is, whenever that is.


Este es un paseo por todas las regiones que constituyen nuestro mundo. En este camino entenderás qué ha estado pasando y por qué. Te ayudará a comprender el presente. Este libro te dará las herramientas para analizar las regiones y descubrir qué tienen en común y los desafíos a los que se enfrentan. Se espera que este libro se convierta en un compás para que navegues el mundo de hoy.
