"Extremely successful as a short and concise summary of the globalization debate ... and is an ideal teaching resource."
Australian Journal of Political Science
"This is a brief and extremely useful book, helpful in particular for bringing some order into the chaos of the globalization debate; and helpful also in that it does not tell a one-sided story. For students of globalization, undergraduate or postgraduate, this little book should be an absolute must."
"Not only is the book a crafted account of the pros and cons of globalization, but it also sets out the store for what must be the great project of the twenty-first century – the development of progressive multilateralism."
Will Hutton, author of The State We're In and The World We're In
"Clear, concise and fast paced, this book is an absolute must read for anyone who wishes to understand or participate in the globalization debate. Held and McGrew not only identify the key issues at stake, but also provide us with real insights into the potential way forward."
Noreena Hertz, author of The Silent Takeover
"A lucid, balanced, and concise interpretation of contemporary debates about globalization"
Robert O. Keohane, Duke University
