From the Publisher"Part of the ‘Critical Introductions to Geography' series, this text is intended for ‘upper-level undergraduates and graduate students' (p x) to help them ‘explore the debate around how the geography of the world economy is being transformed by contemporary processes' (p. ix) . . . On completing these chapters, a good student will have derived an acute sense of both the contested complexity of globalization and its importance as a political tool for promoting a professed ‘inevitable' change." (Area, 2011)
"Herod presents in a concise manner a number of critical perspectives on globalization in a way that makes them easily accessible without dumbing them down.” (CHOICE, October 2009)
"An important introduction to the debates about the geography of globalization. Critical but never shrill, the book works unerringly to expose and render intelligible the intellectual and practical pressure points that are the result of the multiple processes of globalization. As good a starting point as any you'll find."
Nigel Thrift, University of Warwick
"Writing for an upper level undergraduate readership, Andrew Herod has produced a challenging critical interpretation of geographies of globalization that is both historically informed and geographically sensitive."
Peter Dicken, University of Manchester
