What People Are Saying

Gayatri Spivak
Gayatri Spivak, Columbia University:

Required reading for anyone interested in globality and globalization.

Ira Katznelson

I know no better guide to today's perplexing international political economy than the work of Saskia Sassen. Imaginative and learned, it reorients our questions and forces a fresh consideration of standard thought and analysis.
