Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The essays in this volume offer spirited engagement with Held'sThe Global Covenant, which is summarised at the start ofthis one as the point of departure for the debate ... The line-upof contributors is unquestionably impressive and diverse, andwithout exception the essays are lively and well written."

Nicola Philips, Political Studies Review

"Debating Globalization assembles leading scholars torethink the logic and consequences of globalization. Held and hiscolleagues wonderfully illuminate the great forces that aretransforming modern life."

G. John Ikenberry, Princeton University

"This brilliant book succeeds in bringing together two majorissues normally isolated in the international agenda: security anddevelopment, security and the human rights agenda. Essentialreading for students and policy-makers alike."

Laurence Tubiana, Institut du développement durable,Paris

"This book should be compulsory reading for governments,researchers, and social justice activists. The contributionsaddress what is arguably the single greatest challenge of our age:the unstable co-existence of mass poverty in the midst of globalprosperity. Avoiding simple blueprints, the book makes a compellingcase for a new pattern of globalization and an end to "business asusual" global governance."

Kevin Watkins, Director UNDP Human Development ReportOffice

    I don't think it is inherently bad. I mean, it is, unfortunately, our method of reproduction. No sex would mean no humans. But, it ia bad in certain situations. Rape is bad. Also, having sex when you are too young to know better. If you can't afford a baby and you still take the risk of getting pregnant, that's bad as well.

    Se<_>x is how we came to be. How our species and many more are still alive. Needless to say, se<_>x is technically a worldly necessity. However, many people are addicted and do very strange things that have to do with se<_>x that disturb me.

    o.e I wasn't asking that like a little kid. I have my own views on sex. I was simply opening up a debate page. Just to get that clear.<br>Sex isn't bad; it's used wrong. I crack up at people who are strongly pushing the whole "sex is bad, stop sex" opinion. YOU SEEM TO ENJOY IT, SEEING AS IT WAS HOW YOU GOT HERE. Man. Newbs. o.o
