From the Publisher"Part of the ‘Critical Introductions to Geography' series,this text is intended for ‘upper-level undergraduates andgraduate students' (p x) to help them ‘explore the debatearound how the geography of the world economy is being transformedby contemporary processes' (p. ix) . . . On completing thesechapters, a good student will have derived an acute sense of boththe contested complexity of globalization and its importance as apolitical tool for promoting a professed ‘inevitable'change." (Area, 2011)
"Herod presents in a concise manner a number of criticalperspectives on globalization in a way that makes them easilyaccessible without dumbing them down.” (CHOICE,October 2009)
"An important introduction to the debates about the geography ofglobalization. Critical but never shrill, the book works unerringlyto expose and render intelligible the intellectual and practicalpressure points that are the result of the multiple processes ofglobalization. As good a starting point as any you'll find."
Nigel Thrift, University of Warwick
