Overview

“This book is a superb and extraordinary accomplishment, one that is destined to become the definitive work on globalization for a long time to come. It is both a succinct summary of a vast field and a creative synthesis . . . so fully coherent as to break new ground in remarkably imaginative and disciplined ways.”—James N. Rosenau, George Washington University
“The best study yet on globalization. The authors provide a sensible conceptual framework to gauge the great social, economic, political, and technological forces that are reshaping global relationships.”—Foreign Affairs
